Catching The Sun While I Can...


NATURE

The other day I decided to get myself off the couch and go to the grocery store to get some essentials...you know groceries...

While the struggle has been real to get myself motivated to find the motivation as to why eat after all; I have to say it was the best forced decision I have ever made in weeks because when I got out of the store to basically go back to the couch, I happened to look up and see this majestic ball of fire calling my name out loud. I heard it clearly, so I went and admire it for a bit and asked a stranger to take a picture of me and to make sure the sun and myself were in the picture. 

Because if you don't take photo is like it never happen...feel me? ;)

Must Admit...


Style | Must Admit...

Time goes by so fast and the things that we will hold on to forever are the memories made when we could. Here is this pic of one of the many solo trips I took when we could and it was a delight as all other trips I have taken.

I don't believe time heals all wounds but good moments make those wounds bearable. 

The ocean will always be my forever! The ocean will always comfort me!

A Warm Hug and Kiss


Decor | A Warm Hug and Kiss

Often enough we forget or don't even pay attention to the little things that make live such and amazing thing. It is advised that in order to be grateful and content you have to stop and count your blessings. It is no wonder that the phrase 'Stop and Smell The Roses' is such a popular one. My smelling the roses moment is being hugged and kissed by the sun every single morning!

I could be adding blackout lining to the back of my drapes but decided not to because there is something priceless of letting the light shine through each single day and awake me up to get me ready for day day with warm cup of coffee and the reading of my daily text from the scriptures. It is indeed one of my favorite moments of the day!

Life can always get simpler and happier...

Black on Black


 

STYLE | Black on Black...

The safe zone of my heart and my life is the color Black. Most of us have been shaken out of our senses these last couple of months. While I have been doing beyond what I thought capable to keep anxiety levels down to 0% it is important to say when some days are not as chilled. Let's face it we are imperfect humans and not everything will be under control or anxiety free all the time. This past weekend was a bit challenging in a estrange way. I was missing my family way more than usual and for half a second felt that maybe my support system is not where I am at the present moment. I was raised in a small island with a big personality and I am use to be around big populations full of life and love. 

Moving to Arizona was a very unique experience because it felt like a cemetery for most of the beginning years. I was always wondering were are the people? Why is no one walking on the streets? One month later I was wondering...Why have I not met my next door neighbor yet? It is like each individual is in their own little bubble and no one is aware that there are other humans around that simply would like to wave a hello or a good morning. Needless to say I was home sick for about 3 years and it took a few trips back to the island to finally make my decision to commit to this country for personal reasons and also my work makes more sense here.

While I can go on and on on the subject I have to say that after all the headaches and frustrations, and questionings and wonders, etc...Now I look back and I have developed friendships that have blown my mind away on the way they care for me. When I am in the darkest of places, I know who to call to listen to what I have to say with no judgement or critics. And as I get older, those very friendships make me realize that no matter what I have lost or have been taken away from me, friendship is the family that you get to choose and that is priceless.

Going back to the color Black...I embraced this color as part of my safe zone after my grandma passed away. She was very dark and faced a lot of situations that made her feel very insecure when she was alive. She had a limitless amount of love and admiration for me because she knew I was headed the right way in life. Even when I was younger my focus was not about boyfriends and parties I always looked to the future and goals and achievements; not for others but for myself and for my family. My grandmother was one of my strongest cheerleaders in life and when she passed away I was not in the country and I didn't get to see her one more time when she was alive, although we talked on the phone regularly. I was able to go to her funeral and for some reason the entire week I was back home all I wore was Black, It gave me this sense of safety and security in my soul that everything was going to be alright. I even got many complements from my friends on how good Black looks on me even though my island people are very colorful. From then on, I use a lot of Black clothing specially when I am feeling uncertain about something or when I have to make a strong decision that will impact my life. It is also very classic and I am all about it!

On another note...go check out the latest video of one of my custom designs from my work site.

I hope all of you are staying safe and keeping things as chilled and positive as possible. But, never forget that it is OK if things get to be a little to much and that is OK to just let it out and just reach out to the people that wont let you down no matter what. It is good for the soul. ♥♥♥

I GN When The Brain Says So...



I GN When The Brain Says So...

Sleeping is absolutely one of life's greatest pleasures. At least I think so, many do think that sleeping is a waist of time but in the contrary studies have shown the fantastic benefits of a great night sleep. If you prefer to test it out you don't even have to do the research..lol!

In all seriousness, some of us struggle with sleep and after various attempts of trying different methods I pretty much gave up and I have decided to just let my body do what it needs to do in other to feel refreshed the next day and so far so good. What better year to do some sleep testing than 2020...!

A Lot Has Changed...



A Lot Has Changed

Needless to say...A lot has really changed! But in this through back moment, everything has changed since 2007 except jewelry and ice cream on the road. Once upon a time ( 4 months ago ) I used to be the queen of weekend getaways and ice cream was always involved, but in the new normal ice cream on the road means...kitchen to couch. New life, new ways, new expectations. Grateful is an understatement! Hoping all of us have a fantastic weekend no matter the trials...♥

Back then I was hanging out with all the wrong stylists...lol!

Nonetheless, I was feeling myself so let me live my life while you laugh!

Also, have you checked my work website? Well a lot has been updated on that too! Videos have been added, who this?....

Style | Looking At The Weekend Like

Usually when a long weekend is ahead, most people tend to plan all sorts of trips and activities, nothing wrong with it. On my end, I will be doing more meditating and hopefully I'll get some peaceful outdoor activities if I feel like it. However you plan to spend your weekend, make sure is fun, safe but overall fulfilling.

Three Takes...


Places | Dominican Republic

I love monuments, statues, architecture, etc...Each time a get to travel I like to dedicate a fare amount of time to museums and things related to art. It really makes my travel meaningful when I get the opportunity to do it. These is the most important monument in my home town 'Santiago De Los Caballeros' in Dominican Republic. I love making time to go to this place when I get to visit, It reminds me a lot of my younger years and this is usually the place that brings a lot of people together. Here I have 3 color takes of the same pic just for fun...

AZ Fall | Winter

Fall is indeed the best in Arizona, some of you already know how I feel about winters but in a way it is still beautiful other than the fact that I can not handle the freezing cold!!

This picture here was so nice to come across because it reminded me one can still be beautiful even when their leaves have fallen...

The only thing I find useful about winters is the fact I get to use jackets and coats.

It's a feeling of safety meets chic. Can not wait until is over, meanwhile, I will be found under these layers.
