My obsessions: traveling, lounging, snacking (in that order)

First thing I did when I arrived: I landed in Varadero first after the sun went down and I ran to the beach, took off my shoes and just looked at the stars. It was the most beautiful night and the sky was so clear!

Style vibe for this trip: Neutrals mixed with pops of color. I really wanted some colorful pieces for Varadero, where it’s all about the beach, but Havana is so bright and colorful, having more neutral looks was perfect!

Travel beauty hack: My sunless tan spray from Coola. It works so well I can skip makeup. Also natural cleansing wipes, which are good to give your face a quick refresh on the plane or the beach.

My travel souvenir: All the amazing pictures I brought home are the best souvenirs I could’ve asked for!

Cuba must-sees: Old Havana—just walking around the area is like being transported back to the 1950’s!

where to stay: If you want to splurge I would check out the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski in Havana. It’s pricey but absolutely stunning and has an incredible rooftop.

Fave place for a treat: You also need to see La Guarida, which is this legendary restaurant in a stunning historic building. It just oozes character. Plus the rooftop at the Kempinski was the best food we had on the whole trip.
