Unique Wooden Watch for Spring




UNIQUE EVERYWHERE YOU GO. I love how a watch can style and upgrade a look. It gives authenticity to anything you wear. I also love how a unique accessory can express our personality, and JORD’s wooden watch is a perfect example. In this post, I am using the Koa & Rose Gold watch. It is perfect for any occasion. Moreover, it matches with any look.

On the other hand, I want to tell you how much I love watches. Personally, they are a reminder that I have to keep moving and never stop. That’s what watches do. It doesn’t matter what is happening on the outside, they will keep moving, all day long. For me, a watch can be a lifetime lesson. If we feel scared, down, or self-doubting, we can get up and decide to keep moving forward despite the negative thoughts, the kind of thinking that will not help us to reach our goals. xoxo

ÚNIC@  DONDEQUIERA QUE VAYAS. Me encanta cómo un reloj puede dar estilo y  autenticidad a todo lo que llevas puesto. También me encanta cómo un accesorio único puede expresar nuestra personalidad, y el reloj de la marca JORD es un ejemplo perfecto. En este post, estoy usando el reloj Koa & Rose Gold y me encanta porque se puede usar  para cualquier ocasión.

Por otro lado, quiero expresarles mi amor por los relojes. Personalmente, ellos son un recordatorio de que debo seguir moviéndome y nunca detenerme. Eso es lo que hacen los relojes. No importa lo que esté sucediendo en el exterior, ellos se mantienen en movimiento todo el día. Para mí, un reloj puede ser una lección de vida. Si nos sentimos asustados, deprimidos o con dudas, podemos elegir levantarnos y  seguir avanzando a pesar de los pensamientos negativos. Este tipo de pensamiento que nos llevará a realizar nuestras metas.

Spring Vibes

Hello everyone! I am so glad to write this post for you guys, I am more than happy to read your comments and get closer to each one of you. Since my last post, I have been studying and being part of a fashion show (such a beautiful experience which I will talk more about it later on!).

Furthermore, I cannot believe it is spring already! It is getting warmer, the sun is shinning even more, the snow hopefully will thaw soon (as soon as possible pleasee!) and my favorite part, the flowers will bloom. If you live in the Quebec province, I know it’s sad to say, but you as me too, will have to wait a little bit longer to actually feel the spring weather. Thus, for this post I tried to combine the spring season in this end-of-winter weather and try to make it look warm and fresh at the same time!

In this look, I am wearing a turtle neck shirt, a pair of loose pants that I am in love with, black boots that basically goes with everything and a beret that matches my pants. Moreover, what really upgrades the look is this beautiful faux-fur pink coat! I love how fancy and elegant this coat makes you look, no matter how simple your outfit is. This coat had saved my life so many times! For me, it is a “must” in my closet!

I hope you enjoy this pictures so you can have more beautiful outfit ideas with the clothes you already have!!  I hope you enjoy this spring season and the opportunity to have meaningful experiences with you loved ones!  Have an amazing week!♥

ps. I do not really have a season preference but I want to know more about you! What is your favorite season?



¡Hola a todos! Estoy muy feliz de escribir esta publicación para ustedes. Desde mi última publicación, he estado estudiando y fui parte de un desfile de modas (una experiencia increible de la que hablaré más adelante).

¡Wao, no puedo creer que ya sea primavera! Se está calentando, el sol está brillando por más tiempo, la nieve con suerte se descongelará pronto (¡lo antes posible, por favor!) Y mi parte favorita, las flores florecerán. Si vives en la provincia de Quebec, sé que es triste decirlo, pero tú, como yo también, tendemos que esperar un poco más para sentir realmente el clima primaveral. Por lo tanto, para este post, traté de combinar la temporada de primavera en este clima de fin de invierno e intentar que se vea cálido y fresco al mismo tiempo.

En este post, llevo un sueter cuello de tortuga, unos pantalones sueltos que me encantan, unas botas negras que básicamente van con todo y una boina que combina con mi pantalon para armonizar el atuendo. ¡Encuentro que lo que le da un “upgrade” al look es este hermoso abrigo rosa de piel sintética! Me encanta lo elegante que este abrigo te hace lucir sin importar cuán simple sea tu atuendo. ¡Este abrigo me ha salvado la vida tantas veces! ¡Para mí, es un “must” en mi armario!

¡Espero que estas fotos te puedan dar ideas de como armar tu outfit con la ropa que ya tienes y que en esta primavera  tengas experiencias significativas con tus seres queridos! ♥

¡Realmente no tengo una temporada favorita, pero quiero saber más sobre ti! ¿Cuál es tu estacion favorita?

Feliz dia!  xoxoxo

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♥

¡No sé ustedes, pero estoy tan emocionada por la Navidad! Solo quiero terminar la sesión de la universidad para disfrutar las vacaciones. La Navidad es una hermosa ocasión para pasar tiempo con la familia y seres queridos.

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
