The Power of Red: Color To Dye For!

This is a sponsored post as part of my L’Oreal Paris Ambassadorship for Feria Power Reds “Color To Dye For” campaign. All thoughts are my own and a personal reflection of my long lasting relationship with the brand.

The story about how I went from natural blonde to fiery red might not seem that interesting. Girl meets Boy, Boy has a thing for red hair, and Girl falls in love so she decides to go for it to please Boy. In a twist of fate, turning red in fact broke Girl free from who she had become to make someone else happy, and got her in touch with who she really wanted to be. What Girl did as an act of love, turned into an unexpected journey to self-discovery, and ultimately an intrinsic part of her persona. Most of the time we don’t realize how a seemingly trivial choice could potentially impact our lives.

I know changing hair colors is fun, specially if you are in need of dramatic change in your life; but to me, the moment I saw myself on the mirror as a red head for the 1st time, I knew I had met my hair soul mate: a bottle of L’Oreal Feria Power Red in R68! I remember having to stalk it across different stores because R57 and R48 were- may I point out still are- the most popular choices. I felt like myself, as if I should had been bright red my entire life, and this whole time I was just hiding in a shell. I have been married to it ever since.

It is such a part of myself, that it has even become a part of my brand image; Perhaps, because we share many traits! It aligns with my multi-faceted life and bold personality- hello firey hot jokes-, and reminds me of how important it is to find your inner bright light, and shine on your own. Just like Feria Power Red does! It also makes me feel vibrant- never a dull doll-, but most of all, it makes me feel like ME! Who knew that in that aisle full of options, about 8yrs ago, I could have found what today is a part of myself.

La historia de como pase de color miel a rojo no es muy interesante. Chica conoce Chico, al Chico le gustan las pelirrojas, Chica se enamora y decide complacerlo. Pero en un twist del destino lo que la Chica hizo por amor, de hecho la ayudó a encontrarse consigo misma y la llevó a descubrir quién era en realidad más allá de los demás. Aveces no nos damos cuenta de cómo decisiones que parecen triviales pueden impactar nuestras vidas de muchas maneras.

Yo sé que teñirse el cabello es muy divertido y puede ser positivo cuando queremos un cambio dramático en nuestra rutina. Pero el momento que yo me vi en el espejo pelirroja por primera vez, sabía que había encontrado mi alma gemela: una botella de L’Oreal Paris Feria Power Reds en R68. Recuerdo haberla buscado en muchas tiendas porque el R58 y R48 eran- y todavía son- los colores más populares. Me sentí como si debía haber nacido pelirroja y he estado casada con ese color desde entonces.

Ahora el rojo, más allá de a quién le guste o no, es una parte de mí misma y hasta de mi imagen. Compartimos muchas cualidades porque, así como el Feria Power Reds, yo soy multi-facètica y con una personalidad arriesgada. Me hace recordar lo importante que es mantener nuestra luz interior y brillar por sí misma. Me hace sentir vibrante, atrevida, y sobre todo, como yo misma! Nunca pensé que hace 8 años hubiera encontrado algo con lo que identificarme tanto y que se volvería parte intrínseca de mi vida!

I love Miami, don’t get me wrong, but the incessant heat and constant humidity kills my happy mood! I am not a beach or outdoorsy kinda girl, in fact, grass and sand were not meant to touch my body; however, that does not prevent me from loving the landscape. Miami has some of the most beautiful sunsets and night views you will ever see. Looking at the sky filled with pinks, lilac and soft blues, over an orange glowing cloud, is simply breathtaking. Perhaps admiring the shining moon dancing on top of the waves over the ocean, while illuminating the star studded -not talking about celebs tho Miami has them all the time- sky.

This constant exposure to colors and vibrant elements, has inspired and influenced my style.

Easy Summer Hairstyles For Kids!

This is a paid campaign in collaboration with JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® and Latina Bloggers Connect, but all opinions and experiences are my own!

About a month ago I was asked by JOHNSON’S® Baby to be part of their NO MORE TANGLES® Mother & Daughter video campaign. It was truly an honor to be requested for this wonderful initiative, but as a mom who tries to keep her kids’ privacy, I had to give it some thought. I’m sure many moms go through the same concerns with the easy social media access; however, after some thought, I knew this was something we had to do! I mean, who can say no to a partnership with a family brand like JOHNSON’S®, and to spending a fun mommy & me day? Sophie and I love creating fun braids, buns and ponytails because they are the ideal look for this hot season, so this project was a perfect fit for us.

How To Feel Great After Becoming A Mom

I have to admit that since I gave birth to my last child I have not been able to feel the same about myself. I mean, I went from a 7 pound daughter to a 9.4 pound son! Trust me, it was quite a shocker, but needless to say my body changed, and so did I. Suddenly I began to lose my self-confidence, feel a little odd about form-fitting clothes, and shy away from bright colors. In reality I had no reason for it, so I have decided to stop, and come to terms with the new me.

Colombia at World Cup 2014

The World Cup 2014, hosted in Brazil, is the most relevant sports event. Every 4 years we get the chance to showcase our national pride.  As a Colombian, I live and breathe Futbol! I might not play it, God knows I’m not athletic at all, but I enjoy it as much as if I was on the field. This year, after a 16 year absence, I had the honor to cheer for Colombia, shed tears when hearing the anthem and seeing the stadium painted yellow with our jersey, watch the world love our team, enjoy our players dance to every goal, and hear the admiration for our James Rodriguez. We didn’t win the Cup, but in the eyes and hearts of every one, we are winners!

I was raised to love the game, to be in awe of its constants twists and turns, and to feel the passion for our team. There isn’t a winner until the last second has been played. That’s what I love about soccer the most. You leave your heart, soul and body out there, and the winner will only be the one who wants it the most, who fights for it the most, and who gives it all for their team.
