Short days, long nights

As we approach to one of my favorite seasons (well kind of my favorite time of the year) it reminds me of all my new year resolutions (2013) I’ve checked and  those still waiting for me to do. Although it seems I still have time (2 months and some days left) my schedule gets even more crowded each day. I guess that’s why I love fall and winter days because the days are short and the nights are long, leaving me with enough time to focus and do all those things I need to do for myself.

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” – Anne Bradstreet

Birthday Wish List: Givenchy

Hello,

This week we’re celebrating! I’ll be 24 years old on Friday, June 28 and I have to admit I’ve been celebrating since this last Saturday. I’m the kind of person that really like their birthday. I love organizing all the party details and specially having to go shopping for something to wear for that special day. I like to pamper myself but also like to be pampered … I mean who doesn’t! That’s why I decided to share with you a piece of my Wish List. I call it the Birthday Wish List!

Share with me some of your wish list’s items, probably they can make it to my Birthday Wish List. Give me your thought about these …

xx,

Alejandra García

The Special Gift for Mom!

Hello!!

Mother’s day is just around the corner. For us Mexicans we celebrate mother’s day the 10th of may. The thing is that I’m celebrating my mom this Friday and I’m still looking for a big and perfect present for her since she is the kind of mom that loves gifts and not giving her one will be the worst thing I can do to her. I have to admit that most of the times when I’m looking for a gift for my mom I usually end up asking her what she’ll want. I’ve tried everything from surprising her with things I think she’ll love to asking other people what they’ll give to their mother, but the best thing you can do (well from my point of view) is asking your mom what she really wants. I think it is better to ask and give something the other person will really wear or use than giving something she will never use

This week I’ll be posting some gift ideas you can give your mom this mother’s day. If you are the kind of person that prefers the surprises or else you prefer to ask, then this gift guides will really help you. If you live in Mexico I’m glad to tell you that you can find most of these items in places like: Liverpool, El Palacio de Hierro or else in each specific store. If you live in another country you can find the link to each item below.

What are you giving your mom? Any idea for me?

xx,

Alejandra García

Hola,

El día de las madres está más cerca que nada. Para nosotras que vivimos en México, celebramos el día de las madres el día 10 de mayo. Así que voy a festejar a mi mamá  este viernes y todavía estoy buscando el regalo perfecto y grande para ella ya que mi mamá es el tipo de persona que le encantan los regalos y si no recibe uno podría ser lo peor que le pueden hacer. Por eso tengo que aceptar que la mayoría de las veces cuando estoy buscando un regalo para mi mamá por lo general termino preguntándole qué es lo que quiere. He tratado de todo, desde sorprenderla con regalos que según yo le van a encantar hasta preguntarle a otras personas qué es lo que van a regalarle a sus mamás. Pero lo mejor que puedes hacer (desde mi punto de vista) es preguntar qué es lo que realmente quiere. Es mejor preguntar y dar algo que la persona en realidad quiera a dar algo que nunca va a usar.

Esta semana te voy a presentar varias ideas de regalos para este día de las madres. Si eres el tipo de persona que prefiere sorprender a su mamá o bien prefiere preguntar entonces esta guía de regalos te va a ayudar y encantar. Si vives en México, me da gusto decirte que podrás encontrar la mayoría de estos artículos en lugares como: Liverpool, Palacio de Hierro o bien en cada una de las tiendas que puedes encontrar en el moll. Si no vives en México, podrás encontrar el link de cada artículo en la lista de abajo.

¿Qué planeas darle a tu mamá? ¿Qué ideas me darías?

xx,

Alejandra García
