– Leather bags

img_0672

I’ve got an over all bag obsession so when my amazing new leather backpack from Grafea arrived in the mail – I was over the moon! I really love my new backback, everything from the details in the seams to the fluffy black fur ball!

All Grafea’s leather bags are made from the highest quality full grain leather, influenced by a classic British Vintage style. 😍

Alone in the Sand Dunes

image-9

Our second photo session was located at the stunning Maspalomas Sand Dunes. I really enjoyed shooting at this beautiful location. It’s hard not to get some good photos at this amazing setting and the green bikini went so nice with the sand and blue sky. The Maspalomas Sand Dunes became a place we visited several times during our stay in Gran Canaria. It’s a romantic place to go with your loved one.. Me and my boyfriend Ben saw the sunset from one of the highest sandy hills one night and it was so beautiful. A definite need to visit destination when visiting the island.

A blurry picture after a couple of cocktails. Haha! Ekatarina teaching me to say cheers in Russian.

Just wanted to give this place a mention and high recommendations here in my blog. You have to give Pacha a visit while in Gran Canaria!

Thanks for having us! 😘

On Sunday evening we enjoyed a really entertaining evening/night at the famous Café del Mar here in Gran Canaria. The reviews I read and reports I heard were well and truly backed up, as this place was incredible. From the delicious food to the fantastic live show, Café Del Mar Meloneras was certainly one of the highlights of our trip!

Jamón Ibérico is a type of cured ham produced in Spain. It’s usually made of black Iberian pigs, or cross-bred pigs so long as they are at least 50% ibérico.

We enjoyed a selection from some of the most well spoken about starters on the menu. Lamb springrolls, octopus and the fantastic Spanish delicacy Jamón Ibérico.

My main course.. 😍 Fish served with Canarian potatoes in a lovely sauce and vegetables.

When we thought the night couldn’t get any better the beautiful deserts and champagne were served while another great act of the night came on the stage – a talented female musician playing the saxophone. What a great way to end the night at Café del Mar!!

Delicious carrot cake with a scoop of fresh mint ice-cream.. 

img_2077img_2073This caramel crêpe was my favourite of them all. It was fantastic!

I would like to thank everyone involved for making our night unforgetful. Everybody from the lovely welcoming staff to the very entertaining and talented performers. It was a perfect night accompanied by great company. (And lots of great wine! 😜)

And of course a special thanks to the chef for the incredible dining experience.

The Gardens Of Cordial Mogan Playa.

Here’s some photo’s from my very first photo shoot with Carlos… Love everything about them, from the styling, the setting, to the beautiful lighting and location. I’m so glad that Carlos set the shoot location as here at Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa. The stunning gardens throughout the hotel make it a perfect place to snap great photo’s. It was a relaxing setting for mine and Carlos’ first shoot together. His colourful and creative bikini’s really went beautiful with the peaceful gardens of Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa.

Casablanca Las Palmas 🍕 🍝

img_9885

We enjoyed a really nice dinner and drinks evening at Casablanca in Las Palmas last Friday to kick start the weekend. Casablanca is a modern and chic restaurant/bar.. It’s located on the rooftop of another restaurant overlooking the fantastic seafront on the island’s capital Las Palmas. You can easily say that you get the best sunset views from this great restaurant. Unfortunately on the night that we went, it was really cloudy so we wasn’t able to see a beautiful sunset but we still enjoyed the lovely views of the beach and the sea. We also spotted the peak of Tenerife’s highest mountain peak between the clouds.

img_9884
Look how happy this seafood pasta made me! It was so so tasty.. 😜😍

The food along with the company was great. We enjoyed the seafood pasta, which I highly recommend when you go there.. We finished the night at Casablanca with drinks followed with some shisha. Perfect ending!

After our time at Casablanca, Las Palmas, we decided to visit one of the most well known nightclub’s on the island called Kopa! It was so much fun and the atmosphere in the club was awesome. Great tunes pumping with drinks flowing. There was a super happy vibe in the whole club, never wanted the night to end!💃🏻

Me and our friends, Ana & Jairo. 💖

Thanks to all the people involved and special thanks to the owner Carmelo for inviting us for a fantastic evening at Casablanca. Make sure you go there to either enjoy a delicious dinner or just to enjoy the sunset with a cocktail in your hand. Either way, you will have a great night.

…And don’t forget if you like clubbing – Kopa is the place to go! 😉

Maspalomas sand dunes..

I’m so glad I’ve had the opportunity to shoot with Carlos San Juan for his new luxury swimwear collection and I’m having a blast. What a beautiful island this is and how incredible it is to work with such a great photographer and designer as Carlos. Not to mention his assistant Jiairo who also is great to work with as well!

img_8680img_8932Love this green bikini!

The locations of one of my latest shoots was in the stunning sand dunes in Maspalomas. We are also shooting at the amazing hotel we are staying at, Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa. Which I strongly recommend you to stay at when you come to Gran Canaria!

Fine dining at
Los Guayres Restaurant

img_8996

We enjoyed a truly amazing dining experience here at the Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa’s famous restaurant Los Guayres… The evening was perfect, with wonderful company, a great relaxed atmosphere and incredible food.

Raw tuna.. 

We enjoyed a 7 course meal on a beautiful candlelit terrace. We started by sipping on great wine with relaxing music playing in the background  while we waited for our first course…

This dish had such an interesting combination of flavours. Who would have known Scallops with guacamole would be such a great hit! It was delicious. 

img_8883
This stake was made to perfection. I like mine medium rare and this was exactly what I got. The creamy potatomash was so tasty.. Perfectly served with a flavour packed mushroom sauce.

img_8926

To finish the beautiful evening, we were served my absolute favourite desert of all time. The sticky chocolate cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The night couldn’t have had a better end… So for all the food lovers out there – The restaurant to go to when in Gran Canaria is Los Guayres at Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa.

Thank you Los Guayres, 10/10!

Mermaid for a day…

Had a shoot in this lovely little waterfall & pool here at Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa yesterday. What a stunning setting it was to take some shots for Carlos San Juan’s new luxury swimwear collection! I’m super super excited to see the photos from this shoot as I’m confident the photos are going to turn out great!

Later, we changed the location to the pool area and I jumped into a different bikini… By the way how amazing is this bikini?! One of my faves! It was a perfect day to have the shoot. The afternoon sun was shining down strong and the light was perfect…

img_9688img_9440img_9425
img_9757Had a little bit of fun at the end and managed to get this cool little photo! 😇😇
