Today we ring in a new year, and I can’t help but look back into what 2014 brought into my life. Many changes in my personal life, growth in my professional life, and tons of new experiences that have shaped me and made me stronger. I had many struggles and difficult moments, but with each of them, came a hug or kiss from my kids. They’re the ones making me move forward into a positive direction, and encouraging me to continue appreciating what really matters in life.

I was able to see my children enjoy so many things that come directly from my work. Like taking my daughter to meet Katy Perry or doing a Johnson’s Baby campaign with her. I had the chance to travel again to Colombia after a long 8yr absence. It was the most uplifting, energizing and reinvigorating press trip because it meant been with family. I was given the opportunity to share my thoughts and opinions on fashion, beauty, travel, entertainment and technology for many great publications, and bring exposure to brands I deeply love.

As I wait to begin 2015 with new work projects, plans with my family, and an open mind towards change, I feel at peace with the challenges this last year made me face. I wouldn’t be who I am without the stones that have appeared on my path, and that I’ve had to be brave enough to overcome. Do I have any regrets? Even if I do not care to admit it, I do; however, what makes a difference is taking them as lessons and allow them to give me light into future decisions.

I wish you all many more great things and a new year filled with health, success and happiness! I hope that we continue sharing this journey together and making the world a better place, one positive action at a time. Cheers to a wonderful 2015!

Hoy celebramos la llegada del nuevo año y no puedo evitar mirar no que me trajo el 2014. Muchos cambios en mi vida personal, crecimiento en mi carrera y nuevas experiencias que me han hecho mas fuerte. He tenido muchos obstáculos pero cada uno ha sido sobrepasado con un beso o abrazo de mis hijos. Ellos son los que me ayudan a seguir en una dirección positiva.

Pude ver a mis hijos disfrutar muchas cosas derivadas de mi trabajo. Eso me hace sentir muy orgullosa! Como llevar a mi hija a conocer a Katy Perry o hacer una campaña con ella para Johnsons Baby. Tuve la oportunidad de viajar a Colombian luego de 8 años de ausencia y compartir con mis seres queridos. Además, he podido compartir mis experiencias y opiniones en moda, belleza, entretenimiento, viajes y tecnología para muchas publicaciones.

Mientras espero la llegada del 2015 con nuevos proyectos, planes familiares y una mente abierta hacia el cambio, me siento muy tranquila con tods los retos que tuve este año. No sería quien soy sin las piedras que se me han presentado en el camino y que he tenido que ser valiente para sobrepasar. Tengo algún arrepentimiento? Me gustaría decir que no, pero obvio que sí! Sin embargo los tomo como lecciones que harán una diferencia en como tomo futuras decisiones.

Les deseo a todos un nuevo año lleno de salud, éxitos y momentos felicies. Espero sigamos este camino juntos y hagamos el mundo un lugar mejor, una acción positiva al tiempo. Salud a un 2015 maravilloso! Recuerda: Es Siempre Una Cuestión de Estilo No De Economía! ♥Sígueme en Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Bloglovin & Tumblr: HauteFrugalista♥

I have to admit it: Jeremy Scott is one of my favorite people in the fashion industry. American Express spoiled me with an exclusive invite to MADE Fashion Week at Milk Studios for a fun afternoon of hair styling, delish bites, and A-list fashion! I wore my fave Express black/white tweed slacks and white silk top, with a Burlington Coat Factory black leather jacket, and a Style Mafia hula hoop bag. There I had the chance to meet him and interview him for the BeKind Nov issue of BELLO Magazine. I’m more than excited to share the cover feature with hottie Colin O’Donoghue from Once Upon A Time!

Jeremy’s collaboration with Miley Cyrus came in a very organic way because they are friends, so when he mentioned how she should design jewelry for the show, she agreed in a heartbeat! Continue reading

Visiting New York is always one my favorite things to do. The atmosphere, the architecture, the fashion, everything is an ode that speaks to my heart. This year Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week did not disappoint. The collections were fabulous, the weather was gorgeous, and the events were never-ending. I love this flower set from PrettyODD Boutique because it has a fun yet chic print, and the delicate sheer panels make it look sexy without been revealing at all. Since it was a bit chilly I decided to incorporate the GUESS Fur vest which definitely added a touch of glam to the outfit. It was perfect look to attend the gorg BCBGMaxAzria morning show, because is the easiest way to take summer looks, and transition them into fall. Finished it off with my new Tory Burch sunniesBCBGMaxAzria gunmetal cutch, H&M Crystal necklace, and Coach wedges.

There is this so call rule that wearing white after Labor Day is a no-no in the fashion world, so I ask you: Have you seen the emerging trends lately? Mixing of stripes and flores was unthinkable, yet we have seen it done in a very chic way. Color-Blocking was not appropriate until all the major fashion houses started combining the most amazing shades in one  piece bringing my love for mint and pink together. Now we have Nomcore, which I have affectionately renamed MOMCore, because after all it was probably a very chic mom running errands with 2 kids at hand who inspired this “non-fashion” -totally fashionable and ridiculously comfortable- yet pulled together trend.

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.

Excited to announce I am the new L’Oreal Paris Feria Power Reds Ambassador. 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! Continue reading
