Love Announcements: Brazil
-Men who wear white pants in the summer? Yes, please. :)
-For Brazil, I decided to switch over to a natural, mineral sunscreen, and this one did the trick.
-Guarana soda is so good. (Danny especially loves Bare. Can you tell?)
-If Iguacu Falls is not on your life list of places to visit, I highly (highly!) recommend adding it. That place was so magnificent, you wouldn't believe it. (It's one of the 7 natural wonders of the world - and for good reason.) Major bonus....it's romantic. :)
This hotel, across from Iguacu Falls, was spectacular. (Honeymooners, babymooners and anniversary lovers, take note!) We can't recommend it enough.
-I thought I never needed these, but the hotel provided a complimentary pair, since they're all over Brazil. They were actually extremely comfortable and handy to have around. (I see you can also customize your own colors. mmm....there's some potential there with some great color combinations.)
-Loved my new shorts (my very first pair of shorts, if you can believe it. Weird, I know. I guess you don't wear shorts to work in New York, sooo....never had a reason to buy them.)
-I only saw 5 people in Brazil wearing a Panama hat. (They were all non-stylish 65+ year old men.) I saw more people than that wearing Panama hats in the first 5 minutes of walking through JFK. (They were all women.)
-I loooove my new peachy lipstick. I mixed Bolero with Barbarella, from Nars (Thanks, Jill, for the Barbarella suggestion.) And Gotta Dash from Mac is really great, too. [Sorry the photo doesn't show the lipstick too well. I'm sure it will show up in photos eventually. And really, I just love the buttons on the shorts. haha. These were some of our Harvey Faircloth samples.]
-Also, since red lipstick can feel a bit heavy for summer, I am loving Rouge in Love (shade 340) from Lancôme. It reminds me of watermelon.
-Being dairy-free in Brazil was a bit tricky (avocado shakes!) Danny enjoyed them.... :)
-I live on nuts, it seems....so.....I was excited that Brazil is the land of cashews. But don't be fooled. Every cashew I tried was not as good as Costco's (they seriously have the best quality nuts). Sorry, Brazil! (But your Brazil nuts were still tasty :)
-Fruit in the U.S. will never be the same for me.
-I've decided I need to learn Portuguese (I'm going to try this!)
-I want move to Brazil.
