What keeps you interested?

Hi readers I would like to start the week with a small thought…

Last week I had the opportunity to have a very interesting chat with one of my beloved friends. We talked about our lifes and some of our plans for the near future. Suddenly, she said to me she wanted to start something by her own but she really didn’t know how. I asked her about the area she would like to undertake, but she had no clue. So I thought we needed to take some steps back and ask her about the things she liked or enjoyed the most. But still her answer was “I really don’t know”.

I have to admit I’ve been in this same position some time ago and I guess we sometimes find ourselves trying to find a specific answer to this question. As if someone has the exact answer. So I told my friend that what really help is to take some time to think about this…

For some (including me) knowing where we want to work or what we would like to do in life is kind of hard. It might take us some time to actually realize and explain in one sentence what’s our dream job, relationship or life we want. But it really helps to stop for a while with our agitated life, look around and remember what you actually enjoy or enjoyed doing. What takes your sleep away at night? What are those topics or things you search on Google or books or Pinterest or E-Papers? You can start there. Write them down. I’ve done it and it works.

Take your time, think about it, write things down and in the next post we’ll discuss what things can be done now that you know this about you.

Fashion, Marketing and Entrepreneurship (creating new products/companies) is what keeps me interested and curious.

inspirational quote work hard imagine dream

Hola, me gustaría empezar esta semana con una pequeña reflexión…

La semana pasada tuve la oportunidad de tener una plática muy interesante con una de mis amigas. Hablamos sobre nuestras vidas y de nuestros planes a corto plazo. De repente me comentó que quería empezar algo por su propia cuenta pero que no sabía cómo. Así que le pregunté en qué área estaba interesada emprender y me dijo que no tenía la menor idea. Así que pensé en que teníamos que irnos un poquito más atrás y le pregunté sobre aquellas cosas que le gustan o que disfruta pero aún así su respuesta fue “no sé”.

Tengo que admitir que he estado en esta posición en algún tiempo de mi vida es por eso que me imagino que muchos de nosotros nos encontramos tratando de obtener una respuesta específica y clara a esta pregunta. Como si alguien conociera la respuesta correcta. Así que le dije a mi amiga que lo que le ayudaría sería el que se tomara un tiempo para pensar en esto…

Para algunos (me incluyo) saber dónde nos gustaría trabajar o qué nos gustaría hacer en nuestra vida es un poco difícil. Nos podría tomar un poco de tiempo el llegar a saber y explicar en una sola oración cual es nuestro dream job, la relación y/o vida que queremos. Aunque parezca muy sencillo a veces es un poco difícil el empezar a trazar estos pensamientos. Pero lo que realmente ayuda es el detenerse por un rato de nuestra vida tan agitada, el voltear a nuestro alrededor y recordar aquello que realmente disfrutas o disfrutabas hacer. ¿Qué es lo que te quita el sueño en la noche? ¿Qué temas son los que buscas o lees en Google o libros o Pinterest o E-Papers? Puedes empezar por ahí. Anótalo, yo lo he hecho y sí funciona.

Tómate el tiempo, piénsalo, escríbelo y en el siguiente post discutiremos sobre lo que podrías hacer ahora que sabes esto sobre ti.

Moda, Mercadotecnia y el Emprender (creación de nuevos productos/compañías) es lo que me mantiene interesada y curiosa.

My Short Experience – Glass

Hello Followers,

I’m writing this short post just because last week I had the opportunity to try on Google’s Glass for the first time, here’s the whole story… Thursday night I was having dinner with my family at Whole Foods and suddenly I saw this guy wearing some unique glasses with a bright light on it, it reminded me of something I had seen before. I realized he was wearing Glass. Since I’ve been following and have written about Project Glass and Wearable Technology for some time ago, I saw this as an opportunity to finally test my assumptions on these devices. My brothers and I approached the guy wearing Google’s Glass and had the chance to try his glasses. From what I recall its main feature was to let you capture your everyday life and help you make some tasks in a more efficient way. So there I was, with this glasses on watching somebody else’s life. Here’s what I experienced..

When I first put them on, I had a little bit of difficulty trying to see what was on the screen. I guess this happened because it was my first time using them and didn’t know I had to focus my attention to the right eye. Then I saw this small screen floating in front of me with the time on it. Then the guy told me to make the swipe gesture on the right of the glasses to be able to watch some pictures he captured. It was so cool. He said that although Glass has wi-fi it needs to be connected (wire-less) to your iPhone to be able to work. He also told us that he wears it everywhere: while he driving, riding his bicycle, walking, running, etc. and that till now he has had no problem with it.

I really enjoyed wearing Glass for some minutes but I’m not quite sure if I will like to wear them everyday since I really had time trying to focus on the small screen. Maybe if the screen wasn’t that small it’ll be nicer. But the experience is just as I imagined it: amazing. And there’s no doubt I’ll buy them when they come out to the market.

Have you tried Glass? What was your experience? Or what’s your opinion about it?

No Rules

Hello Followers,

Today I was reading one of my favorite fashion icon’s blog – Anna dello Russo – and concluded that her fashion advice is: do not follow fashion rules. I guess that’s why she has been known for her iconic style and everywhere she goes she wins everyone’s attention. That’s why this week I decided to follow some of her advices and chose a black ankle-boots for my summer outfit. Although some may say that boots are only for fall and winter today I state them wrong, by adding this simple but classy ankle-boot to my outfit I somehow fill it gives the whole look a strong and different feeling.

The quote that inspired today’s outfit:

Don’t match clothes and its own function:
Like rain and trenchcoat,
like snow and moonboot,
forget it the umbrella at home!”

– Anna dello Russo

Necklace – Jill Jill Accessories

¡Hola!

El día de hoy estuve leyendo el blog de una de mis fashion-icons favoritas – Anna dello Russo – y al leer sus consejos de moda concluí que su consejo en esto es: no sigas las reglas en la moda. Yo me imagino que es por esto que Anna se ha distinguido por su estilo icónico y a cada parte que va se gana la atención de todos. Por esta misma razón decidí seguir sus consejos y elegí para el look-de-verano de hoy unos botines negros. Aunque muchos dirán que los botines son sólo para el otoño e invierno, hoy quiero probarles lo contrario ya que al agregar este simple pero clásico botín a mi outfit pude levantar todo el look y hacerlo diferente.

La frase que inspiró el look de hoy:

No hagas que la ropa y su función coincidan:

Como la lluvia y un trenchcoat,

Como la nieve y las botas gruesas,

es más olvida el paraguas en casa!”

– Anna dello Russo

The Denim Vest

Hello followers,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did.  I can’t believe we’re in the middle of the year, time really goes fast!!! So this week we’re saying bye-bye June and hello July and why not, hello summer outfits.

This week it’s all about denim. I might guess you already have a denim shirt or high-waist denim shorts if not, go and buy some ’cause denim clothes are a closet must-have. But today I’ve decided to wear denim in a different way. The denim vest is one of my favorite items, I remember seeing this vest at Levi’s a couple of years ago and couldn’t resist buying it. I love wearing it in summer with a romper but I have to admit  the denim on denim trend is my favorite. Hope you like it!

Ps. As I had previously told you, last Friday was my birthday and I had a blast of a time. Hopefully I’ll be sharing some pictures with you this week.

How will you wear this denim vest?

xx,

Alejandra García

Hola,

Espero hayas disfrutado de tu  fin de semana tanto como yo. No puedo creer que ya estamos a mitad del año, el tiempo en verdad pasa volando. Pero bueno de alguna manera esta semana le decimos adiós a Junio y le damos la bienvenida a Julio y por qué no también le damos la bienvenida a la ropa de verano (ahora sí sin excusas).

Esta semana se la dedicaremos a la tendencia denim. Me pudo imaginar que de alguna manera ya tienes una blusa denim o short a la cintura denim, si no es así en verdad te recomiendo que vayas a comprarte unos porque la ropa denim es algo que debes de tener en tu closet. El día de hoy decidí usar esta tendencia de una manera distinta. El chaleco denim es de mis piezas favoritas, aún  recuerdo viéndolo el hace un par de años atrás en Levi’s. Me gustó tanto que  no pude resistir en comprármelo. Me encanta llevar este chaleco en verano con un jumper pero tengo que admitir que la tendencia de denim sobre denim es mi favorita. Espero les guste.

¿Cómo usarías tú este chaleco?

xx,

Alejandra García
