Life with Lin
Wondering how it all started? How did “Hamilton” heartthrob and Vanessa hook up together? Well, let’s see what they have in their fairytale. As Vanessa and Lin went to the same high school, what a tragedy that they never dated each other until almost 10 years later when it was destined for them to meet. Miranda noticed on Vanessa’s Facebook profile her interests in hip-hop and salsa and used this information to invite her to his next fashion show. After that, the couple went down that lovey-dovey lane.
The two dated each other and decided to tie the knots shortly. The couple shared their vows in Staatsburg, New York on September 5th, 2010. The reception was absolutely dreamy, and we were in awe with the details of it, and we’ll let you all adore their wedding reception as well, so here we go. Broadway singers singing on the big day, a performance of “To Life” with all the bride’s family performing along as a surprise, a 22-piece orchestra playing on reception, Ruben Blades and Gilberto Santa Rosa giving their power pack performance on the wedding. What else can a person ask for?
How many children they have?
Nadal and Lin welcomed their firstborn nearly after 4 years of marriage, in November 2014; named him Sebastian. After 5 years of their first child, Nadal gave birth to Francisco, their second son, in February 2018. The couple is quite private when it comes to their family and kids, and that’s the reason they post very few pictures on Instagram and Twitter.
Miranda got a tattoo in his wife’s honor
Well, the caption had your attention, didn’t it? And why not! Who wouldn’t want to have a hubby who would get a tattoo for his wife even after 7 years of marriage? Lin got the “V” tattoo on his ring finger in 2017.
Of course, V is for Vanessa. Miranda took Twitter to express her love by saying that he got a permanent parking spot for “V” over the weekend. Aren’t they adorable?
What Nadal says
Nadal has her firm sayings on the misbranding of cosmetics, saying it is illegal and brands cannot falsely mislead the customers by deceptively endorsing the product which in reality is not what the brand claims.
According to her point of view, “Clean” is a complicated term that should be used to describe a product. And yet, companies use this term to label the brand to get away with the misbranding laws.
Nadal also shed light on the worsening effects of Arsenic and how this poison can cause havoc in a human body, destroying red blood cells, causing baldness, affecting the eyes, or in worst cases, can cause death.
Nadal skincare routine
During this pandemic time, as most of us are confined to the home, and we should too to be safe, Nadal shared with her fans the skincare routine she has been experimenting with as she has got plenty of time like us all during quarantine. InStyle magazine wrote all about her skincare routine for her fans and followers. The morning skincare routine had a vitamin C serum to brighten up her already glowing face, followed by a moisturizer if feeling dry. And for the night, she applies retinol products under a moisturizer. She also applies acid peel every once a month.
Vanessa Nadal is currently working as a professor and co-founder of the very first law school that works on cosmetic regulation, the department that is one of its kind and having the very stern in its nature.
