Though Beltran currently resides in Jaipur, India?the site of her brand-new design studio?she frequently jets back to Mexico City to cull inspiration from its happening nightlife and eclectic architecture. Below, Beltran divulges her daily must-haves and go-to Mexico City and Jaipur hotspots.
1) How would you describe your own personal style?
My style is very easy and relaxed. I?m always on the go, so I need pieces that fit well yet are comfortable and work with my lifestyle. For the work day, that means T-shirts, denim shorts miniskirts, and jeans, which I always mix with my personal collection of polki diamond jewelry regardless of whether I?m at the studio or the beach.
2)You often travel to Japan for personal appearances?have your travels to Tokyo influenced your style? What have you recently purchased there?
They haven?t influenced my style, but my travels give me inspiration for my collections. I love Tokyo?I always buy C?line pieces there since the merchandise is so different in Japan. Toga is another store that carries unique, one-of-a-kind clothing you won?t find anywhere else.

3)Where are you planning to go to spend the holiday season?
I?m not doing any traveling over the holiday season, as spending the holidays with my family is the best holiday!
4)When you say you are going home for the holidays, where is home?
My parents live in El Paso, Texas, so I?m going there. It will be nice to spend quality time with them over Christmas and New Year?s, as it is the only time of the year we get to spend together.
5) What was your favorite vacation spot that you visited this year?
I went to the Maldives earlier this year, and it was an once-in-a-lifetime experience! I stayed at the One & Only Hotel in Reethi Rah?its clear blue waters and serene atmosphere were the perfect break from my demanding work schedule.
6) What are three things?besides your passport? that you never leave home without?
I always have my favorite bracelets, necklaces, and rings stashed in my bag?you never know when your outfit is going to need a little extra flavor. My coconut skin cream is another must-have, as it never fails to keep my hands super-soft. Sandalwood oil is also a daily essential, as it?s great for mid-day touch-ups; its rich, natural scent is so fragrant.
7) What are your globetrotter tips for living like a ?local? in Jaipur and Mexico City?
This Jaipur eatery is the perfect lunch spot; its homemade carrot cake is so delicious. If I?m in the mood to shop, I can stop by the flagship Anhoki store for some block-print textiles after my meal.

Lounging at the Oberoi Rajvillas is the ultimate getaway?the hotel is built like a grand palace. I love sipping cocktails on the terrace and gazing at the amazing architecture.

Whenever I?m in Mexico City, I always make sure to have lunch at Tori Tori. Its sleek architecture enhances the restaurant?s cool atmosphere.

This museum is a must-visit for every jetsetter?it features unique exhibits that creatively relay the history of Mexico. I could spend an entire day here and not see everything!

8) What three L-atitude pieces will you be gifting this holiday season, and why?
This Green Stingray Travel Wallet from Bali-based label Namu is a luxe everyday piece. It?s functional enough to work as my go-to wallet, yet sophisticated enough to work for night.
This Cuda Zig Zag Beach Towel from Istanbul-based label Haremlique is the perfect beachside accessory. Vibrantly hued and ultra-soft, it?s the must-have towel for beach, pool or home.
This Mexican Popular Craft Handcrafted Scarf from Mexico City-based label Celeste House instantly amps up any ensemble. Its vibrant hue reminds me of the warm summers in Mexico City and the indigenous rebozo handcrafted shawls worn by most of the local woman in Mexico.
