CHRISTMAS TIME!

Christmas time is here! And this year I’m super excited to celebrate it, for a long time Christmas wasn’t my favorite, but over the last couple of years things in my life have changed and I’ve come to enjoy this time of the year a lot, and what’s not to like? Cozy drinks, yummy food, spending time with people I love, happy music, pretty lights. The end of the year is also a period of reflection for most people, and this year I have lots of reasons to celebrate that I’ll share later on, on following posts, but for now, I hope you are getting in the mood to celebrate and look at the bright side of this time of the year and not the down sides. — ¡La época Navideña está aquí! Y este año estoy muy emocionada de celebrarlo, por muchos años no me gustó la Navidad, pero durante los últimos años mi vida ha ido cambiando y he empezado a disfrutar la época, y es que hay muchas cosas buenas, bebidas calentitas, …

HOW TO WEAR A WRAP TOP

It’s been a rough couple (probably more) of weeks and being completely honest I’m feeling exhausted, especially cause I keep fighting mental illness like a champ and trying to live a normal life, and add to that my being in the hospital a while ago, and the normal dread of existence we all go through, no wonder why I’m wishing I could be put in a deep slumber for the next month. But anyhow, I’m still here, fighting, going to the gym (that’s a new one!), going to my pole fitness sessions, wearing braces (yet again), trying to eat healthier, and working on new and cool projects and planning new adventures that I can’t wait to share with you. Han sido unas semanas difíciles (quizá un poco más) y siendo totalmente honesta me siento exhausta, en especial porque sigo luchando contra mi enfermedad mental como una campeona e intento llevar una vida normal, pero échenle encima que estuve en el hospital hace un mes, y el peso normal de la existencia que todos cargamos, la …

VINTAGE TEES: A MUST IN EVERY CLOSET

“That t-shirt is new and it looks so old already” said my mom as I put on this David Bowie t-shirt on “well, that’s the idea…” I said. For the last couple of years vintage band t-shirts have become a must have and a basic piece in everybody’s closet, they’ve become a highly demanded item at vintage and thrift stores, with some pieces retailing for hundreds of dollars, and it’s that there’s something that is really especial about them, I don’t know if it’s the story behind them, the softness of the worn out cotton fabric after hundreds of washes or the cool factor they can add to any outfit. Fast fashion couldn’t stay behind on this trend so we now have tons of revival designs hanging on the racks at Zara, H&M and Forever 21 (to mention a few); brand new t-shirts that were given tons of treatments so they would get that worn and lived in look, but the truth is, you can’t beat an origina vintage tee. “Esa playera es nueva y …

WHY IS THE #METOO MOVEMENT SO IMPORTANT FOR ALL OF US?

Hi there again, how’s life going? If you remember last week I was still on my way to feeling better after my ordeal at the hospital, well, I think I’m so much better now, still waiting to get tested, but healthy again. Hola nuevamente, ¿cómo va la vida? Si lo recuerdan, la semana pasada comenzaba a recuperarme después de mi aventura en el hospital, pues, creo que voy mejorando, aún me falta, pero mejor ya estoy. Today I want to talk a little bit about something that’s been going on on the media over the last couple of months, using the t-shirt on this look as inspiration, the #metoo movement. Hoy quiero hablar un poco de algo que ha estado pasando en los medios durante los últimos meses, tomando la playera de éste look como inspiración, el movimiento #metoo (yo también). What is this? Well, in case you haven’t heard, this started after Alyssa Milano tweeted “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet” which was followed by …
