fashion blogger birthday

By the big 25…

It seems just like yesterday I blew out the candles for my 18th birthday. Last saturday the big 2–5 arrived so I took some time to think of what I did and learned through out these wonderful years, and today I would love to share these thoughts with you… hope you like them!

By the big 25….

1. You know how to choose your friends wisely,

2. And know that it’s not possible to keep them all.

3.  Now you know that wanting and having a relationship takes work, but it’s REALLY worth it.

4. You appreciate spending time with your family,

5. And find out your parents are cooler now than they were ten years ago.

6. But also, you know how great it is to leave home and see the world.

By the big 25….

7. You should start saving money.

8. And know that money can be a serious issue if not handled properly,

9. But also that splurging once in a while after working hard is pretty great.

10. You enjoy dressing up and attending fabulous events,

11. But you also know that staying in is as fun as going out.

12. You understand the real meaning of responsible drinking, not just for yourself, but also for others.

13. And start accepting that hangovers DO get worse over the years.

By the big 25….

14. You learn that quality is better than quantity.

15. You should know it’s okay to cry like a baby with a stupid love story or movie.

16. But that you’re old enough to speak for yourself.

17. You should know rejection is the one thing in life that makes you stronger,

18. And that you can still have some regrets even though people say “your old enough”.

By the big 25….

19. You understand the importance of saying no,

20. And that it’s okay to be selfish.

21. You now understand the real meaning of the word “confidence”,

22. And accept it is okay to not know everything,

23. You should know life is too short to worry all the time.

24. And that even strangers can make a difference in your life.

25. But most important you understand that being a quarter of a century old is really not that bad, it’s more of a blessing.

 

Sorry again for the bad quality of the photos but as I said before, I only had my iPhone.

Ale!

Going Neutral

Hello readers,

Many women think that wearing a neautral color will outshine their look , but today I’m here to deny this.  Although neutral usually means without color, wearing a neutral color could actually be a very good choice to outstand your assets. As they say “The brighter tones could not be so bright without the neutral tones.”so by contrasting a lighter tone with a bright one, could help us bring the viewer’s eye to where we want them to look (our assets).  Colors such as beige, ivory, taupe, gray and white (including black, but this time I’m talking about the lighter tones) appear to be without color so, what’s the best way to wear this color and still outstand your assets? Well,  wear a bighter tone in the things you will like to pop-up. For example a red or orange lip, or a bright metallic shoe or bag will look great. I’ll leave it to you to decide what asset to outstand. And you know what’s best? Neutrals are a trending color for the season.

Enjoy your day!

Hola,

Muchas mujeres piensan que llevar un color neutro de alguna manera puede llegar a opacar su look sin embargo, esto no es del todo cierto. A pesar de que el neutro normalmente significa sin color, llevar un color neutro podría ser una muy buena elección si decides utilizarlo como estrategia para destacar tus atributos. Como dicen “los tonos más brillantes no podrán lograr su brillo sin la ayuda de los tonos neutros”, al contrastar un color neutro con uno brillante, podemos atraer la atención del espectador a las áreas en las que queremos que centren su atención. Colores como el beige, ivory, taupe, gris y blanco (incluyendo el negro, pero esta vez sólo hablaré de los colores claros) parecen estar sin color, así que ¿cuál es la mejor manera de usar estos tonos y seguir resaltando nuestros atributos? La respuesta está en usar un tono mucho más brillante en las cosas o áreas que queramos resaltar. Por ejemplo, un color de labios rojo o naranja, o bien una bolsa o zapato metálico se verán increíbles. Te lo dejo a ti a que decidas qué vas a querer resaltar. Y, ¿sabes qué es lo mejor de esto? Que los colores neutros son parte de los colores de tendencia en esta temporada.  Espero que este pequeño tip de color te ayude a resaltar to look.

Que tengas bonito día.

Raising the Bar

Hello readers,

I’m happy to announce that this December I’m not just concluding a wonderful year but I’m also concluding my college degree, and I couldn’t be more happier. Knowing that college has ended is kind of weird, I can’t really explain this feeling, it’s a combination of self-realization and excitement. I guess that what I’ve learned from these past years is that at the end it all comes back to YOU. What you’ve done, achieved, failed, had more trouble in. And it’s until then when you understand that the competition wasn’t  between you and your colleagues but with yourself. Couple of days ago I read this quote that said “I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.”  So this year I’m not only concluding an important chapter in my life but I’m also Raising the Bar for the years to come.

To know others is wisdom, to know one’s self is enlightenment.
