Are you ready for 2018?

Happy New Year Everyone!! Looking back at  2017  I realized how much a person can grow in 365 days. I have received many messages asking how is it possible to change for the better and how is this done, so on Instagram, I asked if you wanted me to talk about how we can achieve our dreams and most of you voted Yes!  First of all, there is something to consider while trying to succeed in life.

I want to start by telling you a short experience:  three years ago I got to the point of not knowing what I wanted to do with my life. It was a weird phase that I experienced. I wanted to know what my passions really were and what made me feel alive. So one day, while using Pinterest, I thought about creating a private board to “pin” all the images that made me feel alive, I dont know, it was kind of an exercise to discover my passions. I remembered I let my mind to go beyond my craziest dreams. While I was choosing the images, I started to notice my interest and love for fashion, reading, writing and interacting with people. Then, I wrote in my journal what I could do  to surround myself in environments I had on my board in Pinterest. It is equally important to mention that I prayed with an open heart to receive answers to my questions of how could I accomplish it. Furthermore, I started to think about creating a blog. When I thought about it, I got very excited, my heart started to beat faster and faster  when I thought about that.  I didn’t know what I was going to talk about, but something I had for sure; I had a strong desire to help others somehow or create a page where others can feel identified… A page where I could feel identified as well.  Moreover, I chose a career related to the study of society. It is crazy how passionate I am while studying different cultures and how my career can make an impact on the lives of groups of people.

Through all the process I started to discover myself, I began to meet incredible people that became an example to me. I received support from my parents and my closest friends. But I would never receive any support if I wouldn’t talk about my desires, ideas, and plans.

Why am I telling you all this? Because it is very important to recognize what your desires and passions are! They give purpose and meaning to your life. It is the gate to create the life you dream to live in! In the last book I read named Think and Grow Rich  (I recommend everyone to read it), the author talks about the power of desire. We as human beings have the capacity to go beyond our limits, correction, to go beyond our imaginative limits. Because there are no limits in life!  If you want to imagine yourself having your own business, a successful marriage, a beautiful family,  a big house with a pool in it, a work job while traveling the world,  becoming an astronaut, learnning 3 languages (or more), or being rich you can do it! As the author says, “when we have a burning desire…We can turn it into gold”.  Can you imagine knowing that every dream and every intangible impulse of thought can be changed into material rewards?

The next step is to have faith on that burning desire to achieve your goals. Do you think we can accomplish our goals if we don’t even believe in them or ourselves? Not even. Faith is a belief that something is going to happen even when we don’t see it. Oprah was fired from her evening news reporter job and she was told that  she was “unfit for television news.” But her burning desire to work on television did not stopped her from pursuing her dreams. Her faith was the driving force to keep moving forward towards her desire.  All the successful people had faith in their work and in themselves. If you feel it is hard to have faith in yourself, I recommend you to “fake it ’till you make it”… And you’ll make it.

In addition, creating an organized planning with specific steps will lead you to your goals. Always surround yourself with inspiring people that have a wider knowledge of what you want to accomplish. If you feel that you do not know anybody, you can know people through books, conferences or documentaries. Furthermore, you always attract what you are.

Moreover, persistence is the key to perfection and fulfilling. It is like a diamond. A diamond is a diamond after the pure carbon is being exposed to extreme heat and pressure. It turns the pure carbon into colorless diamond crystals 100 miles or more below the Earth’s surface. It is inevitable that we feel discouraged or tempted to give up our dreams, maybe through the journey we realize our goals are hard to accomplish, but what kind of growth and perfection are we acquiring if all the things come easy? Practically none.

In conclusion, your desires can be changed into gold. When we put  our faith in practice with persistence, what our hearts desire is transmuted into material rewards.

Do you think it is possible?

I would love to know your experiences! If you have other important tips the comment section is at the top on the right side of the post!

May your 2018 be filled with love, accomplishments, and giving! xoxo

ps. Here there is a recap from my 2017 posts♥

New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas

…and we still celebrating! How are you? I hope you had a great time on Christmas!

I spent Christmas in a countryside named Caña de Palma in the province of Santiago Rodriguez with my family. We were surrounded by coconut trees, cows, horses and beautiful rivers. The electricity does not even work there. If you go to my Instagram (you’ll find it in the left side of the website or HERE) you will see a little bit more of what I am talking about! Moreover, I can’t believe how fast this year went! I remember last year when I was doing my new year’s resolution of 2017! Now, I can look back and take into account all the goals accomplished and how wonderful this year was. I invite you to take an hour (minimum) to ponder about the things you accomplished this year, and the things you have in mind to accomplish. Everything starts with a desire, it only takes faith, actions according to that desire and persistence. The law of attraction will act automatically. Do you believe in that?

In this post I will share with you two looks that I found in Gram Fashion boutique. If you are following me since the beginning you’ll realize how much I love this store! Every time I visit the Dominican Republic I always go there. I hope you like the looks!

Wishing you from the bottom of my heart a happy new year! I hope you never stop dreaming and getting closer to your most deepest desires.

What are your plans for new year’s eve? Did you like these looks? xoxoxo


 

… y todavía estamos celebrando! ¿Cómo están? ¡Espero que la hayan pasado muy bien en Navidad!

Yo pasé la Navidad en un campo llamado Caña de Palma  ubicado en la provincia de Santiago Rodríguez con mi familia. Estábamos rodeados de árboles de coco, vacas, caballos y hermosos ríos. La electricidad ni siquiera funciona allí. Si vas a mi Instagram (lo encontrarás en el lado izquierdo del sitio web o AQUÍ) ¡verás un poco más de lo que estoy hablando! ¡Además, no puedo creer lo rápido que fue este año! ¡Recuerdo el año pasado cuando estaba haciendo la resolución de mi nuevo año de 2017! Ahora, puedo mirar hacia atrás y tener en cuenta todas las metas logradas y lo maravilloso que fue este año. Los invito a tomarse una hora (como mínimo) para reflexionar sobre las cosas que lograron este año y las cosas que tienen en mente para lograr y escribirlas en un lugar donde la puedan ver todos los días. Todo comienza con un deseo, solo requiere fe, acciones de acuerdo con ese deseo y persistencia. La ley de atracción actuará automáticamente. ¿Creen en eso?

En este post compartiré con ustedes dos looks que encontré en la boutique de Gram Fashion. Si me sigues desde el principio, te darás cuenta de lo mucho que amo esta tienda. Cada vez que visito República Dominicana siempre voy allí. ¡Espero que te gusten los outfits!

¡Les deseo desde el fondo de mi corazón un feliz año nuevo! Espero que nunca dejen de soñar y de acercarse a sus más profundos deseos.

¿Cuáles son sus planes para la víspera de año nuevo? ¿Les gustaron estos looks? xoxoxo

Holiday Gift Ideas are here!

I don’t know about you but I am sooo excited for Christmas!! I just want o finish school to enjoy the holidays. Christmas is a beautiful occasion to spend time with family and loved ones. You may or may not have noticed, but people seem to be optimistic happy during this time of the year. Maybe because people give and receive genuine love to one another. Lately,I have been thinking about the difficulty we have sometimes to find gift ideas for Christmas, so I wanted to help you a little bit! I think the meaning of giving goes beyond the gift itself, it is a demonstration of how important a person is and how much you care about them.

Most of the items cost less than $50CA! I hope you like this little guide I made for you♥♥

Have an amazing rest of the week! xoxoxo

Ps 1.What are your plans for Christmas? I will be telling you about mine in the upcoming posts! May we always remember the meaning of this time of the year: The celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth♥

FUR

Hello everyone! How are you doing? The cold has arrived, and it’s here to stay (only for a few months).

I have been in love with Autumn-Winter trends. For example, the boots over the knee (Boots to the knees), neutral plaids in coats and trousers; the velvet (this has been a boom) on sweaters, dresses, even in the shoes we can see velvet! Even though fashion hallows us to express our creativity when it come to get dressed, I feel some originality is being lost. I mean, when I go out, most girls are wearing the same type of jacket or pants, purse, shoes, etc. This is an example of my love-hate relationship with trends!

As social beings, the presence of others influences our way to think, act and dress. The influence is so present that even though these people are not around us they still have an impact on us. We have so much desire to be accepted and to be part of a group that sometimes we lose the essence of what we are. Style is a way of expression, a way of saying without words what we want to project to others. Personally, there are many trends that do not apply to my principles, my personality or my body type. And I just do not use them, and I feel good not using them. There are other trends that define and adapt to what I am. Something I like to do is to alter the garments so that it suits my personality. It is always important to remember that fashion is a part of the decoration, the most important is the attitude and security that comes within you.

In the other hand, this look is perfect for autumn, I’m simply in love with fur jackets (this is faux fur guys). I combined this jacket with a hat that I bought last year and have not used it until now. A little tip, if you buy a garment because you like it and when you get home you realize that you do not know who to match it (this is what happened to me), I recommend you to keep it until you find something that can go with it. I want to add something else, all old clothes can be re-used and remodeled (if you want to save money and develop your creativity). To finish with this look, I wore a turtleneck that matched the hat, black pants (that goes with everything) and the famous “over the knee” boots that I love.

What do you think of the look? What is your opinion about trends? Would you use them all? I’ll wait for your answers!

I hope you have a beautiful day and week! xoxoxo

—————————————————————————————————————————

Hola a  todos! Como les va? Ya si que el frio llego, y llego para quedarse (solo por unos mesesitos).

He quedado enamorada con las tendencias Otoño-Invierno. Como por ejemplo, las botas over the knee (Botas hasta las rodillas), las telas de cuadro  escocés en las chaquetas y pantalones; sin olvidarnos del velvet (esto ha sido un boom) en la ropa y que creen… hasta en los zapatos hemos estado viendo este material…  A pesar de que las tendencias son nuevas maneras de ampliar la creatividad a la hora de vestir, también siento que se pierde un poco la originalidad en la persona. Me explico, cuando salgo a la calle, la mayoría de chicas estan usando el mismo modelo de chaqueta, o de pantalón, cartera, zapatos, etc.  Éste es un ejemplo de mi  love-hate relationship con las tendencias haha!

Como seres sociales, la presencia de otros influye en nuestra manera de pensar, de actuar y también de vestir. La influencia es tan grande que a pesar que dichas personas no estan presentes, siguen teniendo un impacto en nosotros. Tenemos tanto deseo de ser aceptados y de formar parte de un grupo que aveces perdemos la escencia de lo que somos. La forma de vestir es una manera de expresión, una forma de decir sin palabras   lo que queremos proyectar a los demás.  Personalmente hay muchas tendencias que no se aplican a mis principios, a mi forma de ser o a  mi tipo de cuerpo. Y simplemente no las uso, y me siento bien no usándolas.  Como hay otras que me definen  y se adecúan a lo que soy.  Algo que me gusta hacer es alterar las prendas para que se adapte a mi persona.   Siempre es importante recordar que la moda es una parte del adorno, pero lo más importante es la ctitud y seguridad que emitimos.

Cambiando un poquito el tema, este look es perfecto para otoño, estoy simplemente enamorada de las chaquetas de piel (estas son sintéticas señores). Combiné esta chaqueta con un gorro que había comprado el año pasado y no le había dado uso hasta ahora. Un consejo, si compran una prenda porque les gusto y cuando llegan a la casa se dan cuenta de que no tienen con qué usarla (lo que me paso a mí), les aconsejo que la guarden hasta encontrar más adelante algo con que la puedan combinar. Quiero añadir otra cosa, toda ropa vieja puede ser re-utilizada y remodelada, asi se economizan dinero. Para terminar con este look, una cartera y blusa cuello de tortuga que combinara con el sombrero, unos pantalones negros (que va con todo)  y las famosas botas “over the knee” que me encantan.

Qué les parece el look? Cual es tu opicnion en cuanto a las tendencias? Seguirías todas?  Esperaré sus repuestas!

Espero que tengan un hermoso dia y semana! xoxoxo

Elevating Simplicity to Greatness

Bonjour! How are you doing? This past weeks have been amazing! I have had a great time knowing such incredible people throughout these past weeks. It feels so good when you can learn and grow from other people’s example, isn’t that amazing? I am also excited for Christmas. I can’t believe that in a couple of weeks we’ll be celebrating Jesus Christ’s birth. This will be the best Christmas ever! I can feel it♥

There are so many things I would like to tell you! So sad that time is too short, I would like to stop it to do all the things that that come to my mind.

For this post I would like to share this comfy look. What I did with this outfit is that a wore a long t-shirt under my sweater to contrast the color of my look a little bit, a pair of jeans and white sneakers  decorated with flowers on one side. To be honest, I am more inclined to wear high heels, I can spend a whole day using them and I will be fine (depending what kind of high heels of course), I believe it gives a sense of elegance and  a better silhouette to the body as well. In the other hand, I cannot deny how comfortable a pair of sneakers are! Lately I started getting obsessed with sneakers. They are soo practical for the every day life! Furthermore, for my hair I just wrapped it on both side of my head and Voila! The look was done! haha! It’s pretty simple but it looks amazing all the pieces combined.  It’s like elevating simplicity to greatness.

Moreover, there is a paragraph I read from the book: Self Control, Its Kingship and Majesty by William George Jordan, 1905 that says:  “Life grows wondrously beautiful when we look at it as simple, when we can brush aside the trivial cares and sorrows and worries and failures and say: “They don’t count. They are not the real things of life; they are but interruptions. There is something within me, my individuality, that makes all these gnats of trouble seem too trifling for me to permit them to have any dominion over me.” Simplicity is a mental soil where artifice, lying, deceit, treachery and selfish, low ambition,— cannot grow.

I hope we don’t get overwhelmed by the turmoils of this world but we rather concentrate in the everyday simple experiences that makes our life fulfilled.

Note:

  1. If you want to shop the an item that you liked from this look can click on the link bellow and it’s going to show more detail! ♥

     2. There are some shoe stores that I really like that have very cute sneakers (according to my style) like Call It Spring, Aldo and Little Burgundy  Do you have a shoe store that I didn’t mention? Leave it on the comment section! xoxoxo

Bonjour! ¿Como estan? ¡Estas últimas semanas han sido maravillosas! He estado conociendo y aprendiendo del ejemplo de otras personas.  También estoy bien emocionada por la Navidad. No puedo creer que en un par de semanas celebraremos el nacimiento de Jesucristo. ¡Esta será la mejor Navidad de mi vida! Puedo sentirlo ♥

¡Hay tantas cosas que me gustaría escribir! Muy triste que el tiempo es demasiado corto, me gustaría detenerlo para escribir todas las cosas que me vienen a la mente.

Para esta publicación, me gustaría compartir este cómodo look. Lo que hice con este atuendo es que usé una camiseta larga debajo de mi suéter para contrastar un poco el color de mi look, un par de jeans y unos sneakers blancos decorados con flores al lado. Para ser sincera, estoy más inclinada a usar tacones, puedo pasar tooodo un día usándolos y estaré bien (dependiendo de qué tipo de tacones altos, por supuesto), creo que da una sensación de elegancia y una mejor silueta para el cuerpo. Por otro lado, no puedo negar lo cómodos que son un par de sneakers. Últimamentehe estado obsesionada. ¡Son super prácticos para lo cotidiano! Tambien, para mi cabello, simplemente lo envolví en ambos lados de mi cabeza y ¡Voila! ¡El look estaba hecho! ¡jaja! Es bastante simple, pero se ve super bien al combinar todas las piezas. Es como elevar la simplicidad a la grandeza.

Hablando de elevar lo simple a la grandeza, hay un párrafo que leí del libro: Self Control, Its Kingship and Majesty, de William George Jordan, 1905, que dice: “La vida llega a ser maravillosamente cuando la simplificamos, cuando podemos ignorar las situaciones triviales, las penas, preocupaciones y fracasos y decirse: “No cuentan. No son las cosas reales de la vida, son solo interrupciones. Hay algo dentro de mí, en mi individualidad, que hace que todos estos problemas me parezcan demasiado insignificantes para permitirles que tengan cualquier dominio sobre mí. “La simplicidad es un suelo mental donde el artificio, la mentira, el engaño, la traición, el egoísmo y la baja ambición no pueden crecer.

Espero que no seamos abrumados por las turbulencias de este mundo, sino que nos concentremos en las experiencias simples y cotidianas que hacen que nuestra vida sea plena.

Nota:

  1. El link de abajo muestra algunas piezas de lo que tengo puesto por si quieren comprarlo!
  2. Hay algunas tiendas de zapatos que realmente me gustan que tienen zapatillas muy lindas (según mi estilo) como Callitspring, Aldo y Little Burgundy. ¿Tienen una alguna tienda de zapatos favorita que no mencioné? ¡Déjalo en la sección de comentarios! Xoxoxo

The Leather Jacket

IMG_1675.JPG

Hello everybody!♥   I want to thank all of you who had sent me so many beautiful messages through e-mail and social media. I am glad to know that you enjoy reading my posts. For many of you that have asked me why I haven’t post an article lately, it is because I was on my Midterm exams and it consumed all my time! But happily I just finished all of the exams and I feel released again! (until the next upcoming exams).

First of all, I want to tell you how perfect this fall has been. The weather has been so pleasant! I really enjoy the variety of colors of the leaves here in Canada, they are always blowing in the wind in this period of time.

In the fashion world, when we think about Fall most of the time a leather jacket comes to our mind as part of the traditional looks for this season. Many brands commercialize Leather Jackets as a “Must Have” for this season because they know the big impact it will have in the consumers.

The use of leather jackets started in the early 1900’s when aviators and members of the military wore brown leather flight jackets. During the Second World War the garments became known as “bomber jackets” and were heavily insulated and prized for their warmth. Furthermore, in the later-half of the 20th century, the leather jacket achieved iconic status and general acceptance through an inextricable link to Hollywood; Therefore, this item started to gain relevance among the popular culture. Nowadays, the fashion industries have applied the faux/artificial leather jacket as a way to protect animal rights (well, that is one of the reasons). This is something I personally support.

Moreover, I find very interesting the message this jacket transmits by itself considering that a lot of people wear it as way to shape their character and confidence providing a way to define the very essence of being “cool”. I personally love this garment because you can wear it with pretty much everything you have in you closet and you will be looking fabulous still.

What do you think about this look?  Do you have your leather jacket in your closet already?

Have a nice rest of the week!♥ xoxo

ps.

I want to take advantage of this post to tell you about non profit organization called Bank for Burundi that is raising money to provide food for the people in this country. The Republic of Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world and they need our help!

Agradezco a cada uno de ustedes que muestran tanto amor y entusiasmo al leer cada post♥.  Mi mayor felicidad es poder saber que disfrutan el contenido. Para los que me han preguntado por que no he publicado en algunas semanas, ha sido basicamente el estrés de la universidad que ha consumido mi vida! haha! Esta semana finalmente salí de mis “Midterms” y podre ser libre otra vez! (hasta los siguientes exámenes).

Quiero comenzar por decirles que este otoño ha sido mas que perfecto! El clima esta tan agradable! Realmente disfruto la diversidad de colores en los árboles y aquí en Canada las hojas siempre estan volando por todas partes en esta época. Es un espectáculo salir a la calle y ver las hojas caer al suelo y adornar el paisaje.

En el mundo de la moda, cuando pensamos en el otoño una de las primeras cosas que se nos viene a la cabeza es la “chaqueta de cuero” o el “leather jacket” como la mayoria lo conoce. El leather jacket comenzó a utilizarse en la milicia al inicio de los 1900 y durante la segunda guerra mundial para los pilotos que lo usaban para protegerse de las bajas temperaturas en el aire. Mas adelante el leather comenzó a tener un estatus mas exclusivo y emblemático en Hollywood desde 1940 en adelante, y de por sí, llegó a ser una prenda relevante en la cultura popular. Muchas marcas promocionan su linea de “Leather jacket” como un “Must Have” para el otoño porque saben el impacto que tiene en la audiencia. Con el tiempo la industria de la moda ha implementado el cuero sintético para proteger los derechos de los animales (bueno, es una de las razones), algo que en mi opinion es excelente.

Me parece muy interesante el mensaje que la chaqueta transmite de por sí ya que muchas personas la usan como manera de expresar su carácter, seguridad y confianza, sin olvidar la esencia de ser  ”cool” al usar esta prenda.  A mí en lo personal me encanta  y lo mejor de todo es que combina con cualquier cosa que te pongas, no importa lo simple que te vistas, si con un par jeans una simple camiseta blanca, la chaqueta de cuero siempre le dará el toque fabuloso.  ¿ Ya tienen su leather jacket en el closet?

Mas adelante veran en el blog mas ideas y looks para el otoño!♥  Espero que les haya gustado este look!   

Espero que tengan un excelente resto de la semana♥ xoxoxo

PS.

Queria aprovechar este post para comentarles de una muy buena iniciativa para ayudar a las personas de Burundi. Se llama “Bank for Burundi” (Banco para Burundi) y esta origanizada para proveer alimentos a las personas de dicho pais. La Republica de Burundi esta ubicada en Africa Oriental  y esta considerada como unos de los paises mas pobres del mundo. Cualquier donacion sera muy bien apreciada. Ellos necesitan nuestra ayuda!
