Mothers Day Cocktail
When we think of Mother’s Day a few things come to mind… Springtime, Brunch, and Cocktails!
So, what better way to celebrate mom than with a fun cocktail? Now that the weather seems to finally be getting nicer, we came up with a fun fruity cocktail to serve to mom on mother’s day; perhaps even with breakfast in bed? (hint hint)
Our ‘Mama Mango Tango’ (say that 3 times fast) is easy, refreshing and only takes 2 ingredients!
Mangos are a popular fruit in Colombia, and one of our favorite, so it was an easy choice for us, but you can use any fruit puree you like!
Mama Mango Tango –
3 Ripe Mangos
1 Bottle of Wine (we chose a red but you can do this with white or champagne)
Champagne or Wine glasses for serving
To start, peel and cut the mangos. Add the mango to the blender, keeping some aside for garnish at the end.
Blend until smooth. (You may need to add a drop or 2 of water depending on the consistency you like)
Spoon mango puree into bottom of the glass and top with wine. Top with extra mango.
Lastly, and most importantly – Drink and Enjoy!
Don’t forget to shop our website for mom too!
I wanted to give you all a peek inside our honeymoon in South Africa!
It’s no surprise I like to travel, and luckily I found a husband who does too! We wanted to pick a place we’ve both never been and who knows when the next time we’ll be able to do a big vacation like this again! 😉
We broke the trip up into 3 parts: Safari, Wine (duh), and Beach!
Our first stop was Kruger National park. The safari was by far one of the coolest things I’ve experienced. Being so close to the animals on their natural habitat was amazing. One of my favorite parts of being in Kruger is that they believe in letting nature run its course. The pictures don’t do justice to actually being there!
The next stop was Cape town were we got to do some hiking and exploring the city and Franschhoek, aka wine region! We enjoyed our days winery hopping, learning about their wines, eating delicious food, and enjoying incredible views. Definitely a must go place if you’re ever in South Africa!
Lastly, we ended our trip in Hermanus spending our last few days relaxing on the beach where we experienced gorgeous views and beautiful sunsets.
Our trip to South Africa was picture perfect to say the least and we enjoyed exploring a new place together!
As most of you know our products are all handmade with love in the Philippines but today that changes as we are sooo excited to introduce our made in the USA earrings!!
These beauties are handmade in Maple Glen, Pennsylvania by our fun creative team. At Sylca we don’t like to waste so instead of trashing our jewelry casualties, throughout the years we have kept them in hopes of coming up with something creative! Finally one day a customer gave us the amazing idea of turning these unused beads into beautiful earrings, and thus the birth of our new Made in USA line.
Let us know what you think of our new earrings!
Wondering why you NEED to own at least 1 piece of Sylca Jewelry. Our customers say it best!

If you don’t own a piece of Sylca… what are you waiting for? and if you already do we would love to hear why you love it.
Our Newest Spring 2018 Collection was inspired by COLORS and the meaning behind them. What they make us feel and really what we wanted you guys to feel when wearing Sylca!
Some of the main color groups we used in the collection were blue, yellow, pink, orange, green, and black and white!
Let’s start with
Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. This is our temple and we need to take care of it! We wanted you to get the feeling of calm and tranquility when wearing our blue jewelry. Let us know if you get this feeling when shopping or wearing our new BLUE collection!
Now moving on to
Yellow produces a warming and cheerfulness effect, it is also known to stimulates mental activity, and generate energy. When designing this line we had one goal in mind to make you feel happy and cheerful! We hope we accomplish this when you see this new designs!
Keep posted to hear about our other color inspirations!

With the Christmas season upon us we wanted to share some of our favorite Colombian traditions with you!
We would kick off the Christmas season with Día de las Velitas’ or Day of the little Candles where everyone would decorate their houses with tons of candles and festive lights! It was always fun to walk around to see all the decorations!
Like most, some of our traditions include decorating the house with holiday decor, candles in the windows, a nativity scene, and of course, a Christmas tree! The nativity scene was especially important, as we would right letters to baby Jesus letting him know the presents we wanted each year!
The one tradition I loved most growing up was taking part in Novenas. This started on the 16th of December and went until Christmas eve. Each night we would gather with family and friends for prayers, caroling, and of course, yummy food!
What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
