Hi guys! Happy Monday!

I’m finally able to share photos from my regular camera that we took from paris… which I’m excited to post because it brings me back wonderful memories with my amazing friends, betty + mathieu.

This look was from the second day which was spent walking around, eating and doing a little food shopping.  We were lucky because the weather was just right. Not cold, not hot, it was nice enough to have bared legs, a little gloomy at times but we didn’t mind it at all. It just felt perfect.

So get ready for more paris photos to come! Bisous!

-ps See you guys at my event tonight in the Armani store, 9533 Brighton Way, Beverly Hills from 6:30-8:30pm! Cant wait!

D U B A I with Topshop.

TOPSHOPCOVER

Greetings from Dubai! As I mentioned in my last post, I’m extremely excited to be here and experience what Dubai is all about even if it’s for a couple of days. It’s been on my bucket list so it kinda feels like I’m dreaming right now. I mean… to see the Burj Khalifa in person is definitely mind blowing!

Another reason why I’m excited is because I’m teaming up with Topshop Middle East in the Dubai Mall (which btw has to be the most sickest mall I’ve ever been to!) to host a super fun event to help celebrate the launch of the Topshop x Adidas collaboration. I had the chance to meet the team earlier and check out the collection in which I’m already eyeing a few pieces like the hard shell toe Original sneakers and the Adidas logo sweatshirt. It will be a fun night where I’ll get to meet all my lovely followers from Dubai, chat with them, take photos, check out the collection, do some styling tips, dance a bit… I mean, just have fun!

So for all my readers from Dubai, please come out to our event: Thursday, March 20 from 6:00-8:30pm at the Topshop Middle East in Dubai mall. Invite is below!

See you all there and make sure to follow us to stay updated with behind the scene photos and more! @sincerelyjules and @topshop_me

Algarve, Portugal Diary / Day 3

COVER01

As our days got closer to the end, we were excited to do the last activity of the our trip thanks to our lovely host, Conrad Algarve. They had planned an early boat trip with the executive chef, Andrew, from the hotel’s restaurant, Louro, so we can go clam picking! This was exciting for me as I’d never done anything like it. Typically, I’m a little skeptical when it comes down to doing things like that, but for some reason I was really looking forward to doing this activity!

The morning started off a little gloomy with some light rain, but it didn’t stop us from heading to our destination! Once we arrived, we put on our gear and grabbed our buckets and shovels. The local fisherman that we brought along taught us a little bit of how the process they go through is and showed us first how to go about looking for clams, razor clams and oysters. When it was finally time for us to give it a try, I was a little weirded out but went ahead and tried anyway… it was probably one of the coolest things I’ve done in while. It’s very time consuming so it made me appreciate seafood a lot more. It was fun to experience something new for me in a new country with new people!

Afterwards, we headed back to the hotel with our buckets of clams, oysters and razor clams and rested for a couple of hours before heading to a cooking class with the chefs of the Louro restaurant. They gave us a tour of the back kitchen and how the kitchen runs; very cool stuff. It was great to really see it personally because I wanted to grow up to be a chef, now that I saw how it really goes down, I don’t think it would have been good fit for me! Whew! Anyway, we finally got into the cooking part and before you knew it, we had a whole 5-star dish right before our eyes! The experience of doing the clam picking ourselves to later cook it for dinner was definitely a first one that I won’t ever forget.

The rest of the day was pretty mellow as we were free to do whatever, so we laid out by the pool, took a quick drive around the town, did a little shopping and hung out at the hotel. We were sad to close out our trip in Algarve but were super thankful to have had the experience to enjoy the beautiful 5-star Conrad hotel, the village, inland, beach, and the many activities they had planned for us. The people of Algarve/Portugal were the most nicest and welcoming people we’ve met overseas; it was a breath of fresh air. It is a region full of blooming opportunities with so much to offer that I’m definitely looking forward to visiting again, only this time during the summer!

Big special thank you to everyone that made this trip possible; HL Group and Conrad Algarve. It was the sweetest trip! Thank you Ricardo for being the most welcoming host; you were awesome. Antonio, you were so fun and we loved your energy! Andrew and the whole kitchen, thank you for allowing us to come into  your space and showing us around, we loved every minute of it. Everyone else, thank you thank you thank you. This trip was perfect!
