Gran Canaria: A detox destination

By February 4, 2015 Travels


Few months ago I went to Gran Canaria, but not to only enjoy the 25 degrees it as has all year round, the beach and the shopping, but its wellness. I found out that the Spanish island has a wide variety of spas and treatments, for all budgets and ages.

So I thought of whizzing over the best bits of this experience, as a perfect destination to escape this freezing cold winter and pamper yourself with a detox kind of destination, under the sunny weather, in Europe.

I’ve already shared some tips about Gran Canaria and told you all about the hotel where I stayed with all its facilities and amazing food HERE, but here’s all about the spas, treatments and their awesome ocean views – I even got wrapped in algae! Come join me and take a trip to the sea…

Gloria Palace Hotel

I mean, this Thalassotherapy pool…



The good thing is that we were up for it (as if we would even think it twice…)


However, all the hotel facilities were espectacular

But the spa… oh dear that spa!…Gran-Canaria-spas2

I tried the Algae Wrap and it got pretty hot, it stink, but my skin felt so gooood and sooooft afterwards! (worth it)




Yes, it was relaxing. Very.



But between trying one spa and another, a submarine break with Gran Canaria Blue is pretty tempting…




Cordial Canaria was a different kind of spa. Small, but cozy and very green. A family friendly hotel with a luxurious escape for grown ups.







And then the detoxing trip closed with my favourite spa, Lopesan Villa Del Conde


It has an amazing ocean view… Wait, let me say that again: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

All with this view…lopesan2


Then you are welcome to enjoy the spa’s facilities, which are just great. Plenty of modern spaces and seawater pools, outdoors facilities with pools and sun terrace too.




The experience here was a combination of luxury and wellbeing. Good match.oceanview-spa1







Besides the spas, these natural landscapes will blow you away…

Gran Canaria was just so very lovely. With wellness becoming one of things the island’s is getting more known for, trying these spots was a tick on my bucketlist. Still, wanting to come back (specially in this weather).

Ibiza Part 1: Formentera

By August 11, 2014 Travels


Hellou people!! It’s been a long while and how much I’ve missed this spot…

But it’s all been for a good reason; I’ve been working very hard on The Independent’s fashion page and I invite you all to visit (do tell me what you think!). I’m really enjoying it and long working hours have left me limited time to share the love in here. However, I won’t disappear and I will stay around for weekly content and catch ups! I might be sharing updates of the best articles we covered on The Indy online over the week! How does that sound?

In the meantime, I have some nice shots tu share from a place I recently fell in love with… Ibiza! Last week I came back from a very very short, but greeeat holiday. Formentera stole my heart and I just can’t wait to go back. This first post is packed with the day that kicked off a much needed girls trip to the Spanish island. We rented a private boat to get to the prettiest beaches far from Ibiza and so we head to Formentera and its surroundings. And wow! What a voyage to a magical world it was.It’s surrounded by what they call “calas” which means creeks. Imagine hidden places surrounded by big rocks and some green. Hues of blue and turquoise water. Stunning…

And yes, I was there on the week that felt the whole world was there (when all celebs went to Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci’s star-studded party). I even got to see Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom. More on that later.

I hope I can transport you to the beach with this stunning place. Have a lovely Monday!

Los Roques: It’s a wrap!

By March 21, 2013 Travels

FashionInsideOut goes to Los Roques…

If it was for me I could keep posting countless photos of the paradisiac world of Los Roques after visiting it for few days. But there’s also much more beside the travelling and showing you this incredibly virgin archipelago, therefore I have put together a full post with a mix of all the photos I took during my recent visit and wrapped it up.

Snorkelling seeing all the beautiful corals and fishes, visiting the turtles’ reserve, fishing and eating fresh fish, swimming with the starfishes, writing on the white sand, sharing quality time with special people and simply having an absolutely relaxed time at the quiet beach with the sound of the chill waves. That was Los Roques again!

Now, you may ask (although I’ve mentioned it before) where and how to get there? Well, it is an archipelago located in my hometown, Venezuela. You can get there just by small planes from Caracas and other cities, which you can find in different companies (eg. Aerotuy). Once you arrive to Gran Roque, the landing town, you go to your accommodation, better known as ‘posadas’. You can find a wide variety of these house/hotels and I could recommend two or three, but one that I like for their lovely service, outstanding delicious food and warm welcome is Guaripete. When you have your swimsuit on you then jump on a boat and begin your experience. I invite you to add it to your holiday list, I can guarantee you won’t regret!

Turquoise waters and white sand

By March 14, 2013 OUTFITS 1

Day 2 at Los Roques, specifically in a majestic land called Cayo de Agua. No words. I think these photos and the stunning background say it all. I would say I matched this dress with the white sand…. It was my mom’s and it was the perfect time to wear it in paradise! Also the first time I wear this lovely pair of Gucci vintage sunglasses, that were an amazing present from one of my special readers… The blue and green touch was the perfect match with the turquoise waters.

Dress: My mom; Sunglasses: Gucci

Back in the paradise of Los Roques

By March 13, 2013 NEW IN, OUTFITS 1

I’m incredibly lucky to be back in the Venezuelan paradise of Los Roques. Coming to Venezuela for a short break was the perfect excuse to visit my favourite place in the world and the most amazing beach destination. I’m not a big fan of showing the bellybutton, not even when its back in fashion, but I must admit sometimes I like how it looks and the beach was the perfect excuse to wear this top with the delicate tale… Just get prepared to get a bit of the sun through FashionInsideOut. The Internet here is incredibly slow, but I will be soon sharing all the snaps of this unique escape.

I was wearing–> Top and shorts: H&M; sunglasses: Oakley

Priceless sunsets

I believe that for almost everyone the sunset is one of nature’s most beautiful thing to see, from wherever you are. But being able to see the sun disappearing below the horizon at the beach is pretty much priceless don’t you think? Here two of my sunsets at Agadir. Have a lovely day!!!
