On my second day in São Paulo, the LoveGold team and I headed to visit Jack Vartanian’s beautiful space just a few blocks from our hotel…
All of Jack’s designs are handmade in Brazil. I was such a fan of his work, but I especially fell in love with the gold pieces that combined fine stones with modern designs.  We shot a bunch of photos on the gorgeous roof deck of his boutique…
After a quick lunch at a nearby cafe, we headed to the mercado where we sampled all kinds of local fruit…
Stay tuned for photos from my time in Rio! And see more photos from Brazil on LoveGold!

    You know the most annoying thing about your blog is the fact that you never share your work out routine which is very clearly known for those true Karla closet followers. I’ve been a follower for years such a fan that I’ve caught on to your traditional 4th of July family vacation. It annoys the hell outta me that you so carelessly flaunt your in-shape/tone body but again and again refuse to share with us how you manage maintain your body. Karla I love you I truly do but putting up your fav recipes is deceiving and annoying so please do a real post about your work out routine.

    Thank you!

    Karla! The fruit in the last picture has a funny name in my Ghanaian language. It’s called aluguntugui…LOL I’m not even joking!

    Awesome pictures. It looks like you’re loving Brazil.
