P.S. I’ve got a really cool interview and fun DIY lined up for you guys. Posts will be up soon!
|1 & 2. Wearing a top c/o of He-bi and self-made skirt at Camp Cazanave, my mom’s childhood neighborhood, where I spent Christmas playing old-school videogames, eating tamales and riding quad bikes. Ahh, bliss. 3. My friend Lutfi and I finally opened the first online vintage clothing shop in Honduras, Bultique.com. The packaging and stickers are the cutest! 4. Vintage fabric, ready to become something amazing for Bultique. 5. We recently moved, which inspired a bedroom makeover (on a budget, of course). Pictured: Vintage Ozz Franca painting, thrifted vases and Lutfi Janania earrings. 5. Third World Fashionista featured on new Mexican design magazine, FACERE! ♥|
The launch of Bultique.com, a vintage shop I’ve wanted to open since I was like 6 months old, was a really amazing way to end 2013 and doing it with one of my best friends made it even better than I ever expected. We basically sold out on week 1, but we’re already working on stocking up on gorgeous (and quite weird) things. I want them all! Follow us on Facebook for the latest updates, a’right?
The shop is mostly in spanish because we are in Central America, but if anybody has any questions or would like anything shipped to the U.S.A., just sent us a message. 🙂
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, PLEASE participate. I’d love if the clutch went to someone who genuinely likes this blog. 🙂 Winner will be announced February 5th. Woohoo!
On Island Bliss part 1, I shared a few pictures from my trip to Roatán. That same week, I took an overnight trip to Utila. My friends, I think it’s about time I let you in on a very embarrassing secret: I. cannot. swim. This picture pretty much sums up my relationship with aquatic environments:

The good thing is, I can enjoy the sidelines. So while the girls went out snorkelling…
…I Iaid on the shore browsing through a mag and chatting up an endangered creature, the Honduran national bird!
|Wtzup? I’m a friendly Macaw.|
I joined them on all other activities. We shared one bedroom (six girls, madness), spotted a swimming iguana, danced like madwomen, had tasty seafood for lunch, rode our bikes all over the island and convinced each other that our sandfly bites didn’t look “that bad”.
|Outfit details (left): thrifted croptop, skirt is a gift from sister, dreadlocky hair c/o Utila.|

The reason why I have so many pictures of the trip is because Kirsis was willing to carry Betty Canon wherever we went and snapped most of the shots on this post. Thanks Kirso!
