Say "Hola" To a Spring Getaway 💋

With a personal touch and the latest shades of Madame Gabriela Lipsticks in my bag, I'm thrilled to share with you the hidden treasures and newfound favorites in Mexico City that continues to inspire and awe—much like the perfect shade of lipstick can transform a moment.

The Artistic Soul of Mexico City

Just as Madame Gabriela Lipsticks are inspired by the boldness and beauty of natural elements, Mexico City's rich cultural tapestry is beautifully woven by legends like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and José Clemente Orozco. This winter, adorned with my favorite shade, Paris at 7PM, I explored the city’s latest artistic expressions during the celebrated Mexico City Art Week, discovering breathtaking pieces that remind me of the vibrant hues and the sustainability ethos of Madame Gabriela Lipsticks.

JO-OHS, nestled in the vibrant neighborhood of San Miguel Chapultepec, is a revelation in the contemporary art scene. Since its opening in 2021, it has become a sanctuary for art enthusiasts, especially with the recent "Encounters" exhibition by Emil Sands, which profoundly explores the male form and its interpersonal connections. An absolute gem located at Gobernador Jose Guadalupe 46, it's a place that beckons a visit.

Not to be missed is Galería OMR in Roma Norte, where Eduardo Sarabia’s “Four Minutes of Darkness” captures the ephemeral beauty of a solar eclipse through a mesmerizing multi-medium installation. This gallery, at Córdoba 100, is a cornerstone for those captivated by the blend of nature and narrative.

Culinary Delights

Contramar stands as a testament to Mexico City's dynamic dining scene, a place where the vibrant energy of locals and expats alike converge over exquisite seafood. This isn’t just dining; it’s an experience that embodies the spirit of the city.

No journey here is complete without a visit to Pujol, a culinary institution renowned for its ever-evolving menus that surprise and delight. The genius behind Pujol ensures your palate embarks on an unforgettable adventure.

Quintonil offers a refreshing perspective on Mexican cuisine, courtesy of Chef Jorge Vallejo. Here, traditional comfort food is reimagined, inviting diners to indulge in a laid-back yet sophisticated gastronomic encounter.

Maximo Bistro is the place to be and be seen if you want to mingle with the chic crowd of locals. A farm-to-table experience that is as refined and as simple as you can find in a metropolis. Every dish is a delight to the senses.

Botánico is a hidden gem. The tuna tostadas are unbelievable.

Churreria El Moro - best churros in the world, say no more.

Espíritu Santo is an organic delight for breakfast.

No matter where you dine, do so with nourishing touch of Madame Gabriela Lipsticks.
