Latina Bloggers (and Hermanas) Natalie and Dylana Suarez Share Their Favorite Beauty Hot Spots Around The Globe
Keeping up with bloggers Dylana and Natalie Suarez is like playing Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? The sisters, 26 and 23 respectively, are always in motion, gathering inspiration for their popular blogs Color Me Nana and Natalie Off Duty. “Natalie and I travel together often,” says Dylana. “It’s like having my best friend with me, so our adventures end up being for work and play.” The part-Mexican, part-Spanish, and part-Chinese beauties pencil in indulgent treatments along the way—mani-
pedis, massages, you name it—so they have lots of suggestions to share for your next trip.
