Keep Smiling...Because That Is You...

Mindfulness | Keep Smiling

One of the biggest test in life is the tribulations you receive by the people you love and respect. But, the best way to conquer is to keep smiling, genuinely smiling to the tribulations. When you know who you are and with Jehovah by your side, there is no mountain high enough...!

Just A Few 'Estatuas'

Just A Few 'Estatuas'

So...Estatuas is the Spanish translation of Statues...just in case you didn't notice, I am Latina born and raised in the beautiful island of Dominican Republic. These are just a few of the beautiful statues I get to see each time I get to visit my familia in my city Santiago De Los Caballeros.

Fedora Time

Style | Fedora Time

Most will say, that hats look pretty good on me but I literally, secretly hate them...
I find them heavy or like they are compressing my brain [Like it's not compressed enough already, LOL!!]Even if they are light weight, I guess is just a feeling but it is not a good feeling so I try to avoid them at all cost.

The time I bought my first fedora was a happy moment because it was so beautiful, black and white and it fit right. Although it was still compressing my brain, I was able to pull it up with a smile in my face as usual.

Maybe it helped that most times I was either near or at a beach somewhere when I wore it. =)...

1, 2, 3....

Style | 1-2-3

Each year I attend a regional spiritual convention for 3 days. This is a very important spiritual feast where you have the opportunity to dress up for the occasion. One of the requirements is modesty which I enjoy very, very much! But finding modest fashionable pieces nowadays is like going camping at a jungle with no directions!! Fortunately enough I sort of know how to sew a thing or two...=P. This particular weekend I decided to play with color but still keeping my favorite color 'BLACK' for the last day. I had a blast in this very special occasion with all my brothers and sisters and got many complements for my 3 little numbers. 

P.S. if you would like one of these designs in your closet. Please feel free to go on my website www.shopalphonsina.com and make an appointment to have one of these made just for you!

Heart In A Cup...

Life | Pretty Heart Cups

I used to be a collector of coffee mugs. Quickly realized, this was a rich people problem and had to quit it because it required a house with a royal kitchen. Meanwhile, I admired them from a distance.

In The Right Place...

Places | San Antonio Winery LA

Throwback to when everything was wrong but the place was right! This was a nice fun day with some friends that ended at a Chinese restaurant somewhere in downtown LA then headed back home listening to Tupac! As far as my memory recalls it wasn't even Friday, LOL! Good times indeed...♥

Snow In Phoenix?!

Nature | Snow In Phoenix

While I totally understand it does snow in 'ARIZONA' never, ever, ever did I experienced snow so close to me in the combined 7 years + I have lived in this city. This was definitely a surprise when I wake up one day, pick through the blinds as usual and then...HOLY MANOLOS!!!! What on earth it's happening? No wonder I was not feeling my fingers in the middle of the night...

This was a beautiful moment to say the least, not necessarily looking forward to it again because I am a warm weather individual. It was one for the books indeed.

Don't Quit!...

Mindfulness | Don't Quit

Trying hard to stay in a healthy routine when it comes to exercising. Unlike other humans, I very much dislike going to a gym, I find it absolutely hideous and extremely out of my comfort zone.

Lately I have been enjoying a new favorite YouTube channel called 'MadFit' and let me tell you, do not let the sick fit body and the cute face the instructor has, she will definitely kick your butt in no time. Her amazing simple approach with even more amazing results has me in the clouds...

With a very busy schedule on the daily is not all the time I can get to her videos but lately things are falling into place and I'm able to join the routine on a more balance way.

Let's hope it continues this way, because I am absolutely obsessed [in a good way, lol!!]  

P.S. I'm also loving her outfits =)

Peachy Kisses...

Mindful Living | Peachy Kisses

These eyebrows have never seen better days!!! Love the way I hand painted them.
Make up to me, like everything else in life, it is about simplicity with a focal point. More often than not the focal point of my make up are my eyes, and everything else is very simple. For the sake of simplicity I don't even use foundation and when I do it is usually for special occasion events, specially night time scenarios. If I happen to use foundation during the day, always, always, always it is mixed with a lot of face moisturizing creams [ more moisturizer than foundation, always!! ] It just something about too much make up that makes me feel so uncomfortable, like if I am trying to hide something, instead of just embracing life as it is, beautiful and unique. 

To each it's own...nothing against it. Too much make up it is not for me. 

P.S. after watching 'BROKEN' documentary on Netflix. It has changed my look on make up to a whole  other lever. Highly recommend watching it  to learn some stuff and how greed gets in the way of almost anything.

Nippy or Freezing?

Life | Nippy or Freezing?

Same difference to me! Lol! as per my mannequin she insists in no cloth but hopefully I will inspire her to dress with some new designs coming up. One thing I love about my job is how creative it is and my ability to escape mentally with it. Lately, I have been experimenting with colors and hopefully the mannequin will approve.

If you would like to check out my creative work please head over to my website. www.shopalphonsina.com

I Wish I Had A Real Sister...

Live | I Wish I Had A Real Sister

I have two brothers and I am the middle child. With my introvert spirit in full mode 24/7 sometimes I wish I had a real sister that I could escape with and just be the two of us dreaming, laughing our souls out, dancing like nobody is watching, and lifting each other up when life gets a bit cray, cray. 

Sometimes friends can be like blood related siblings for some people. I have only experienced that feeling once in my life and in all honestly it's been a lot harder than I anticipated to find that sister/friend again.

Meanwhile...I will do my best to enjoy what has been handed to me in terms of 'friends'...♥
