Orange-You Glad To See Me?!

Losing a loved one made me realize I was in dire need of a change in my life. I needed to take time for myself, spend more time with my family, and re-organize/re-prioritize my path. So I took a much needed break to recharge myself and find my inner center again. I decided to give myself 20 days off. No social media, no blog, no work, no emails, total disconnect from the noise of the world… Just home with my family. I believe fashion can be an emotional outlet, even in the worst of situations, and I constantly use it as mine. Whether we are mourning, feeling happy, and even when getting married, the colors we choose allows us to express our emotions and set the tone for our day.

Pearls: A Tale of Love and Pain!

Love, just like beauty and fashion, doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process that requires to be emotionally open and willing to make sacrifices. Pearls are the best example. They are born from the pain that a grain of salt or sand brings into the oyster; however, instead of allowing the wound to grow, the oyster decides to cover it with nacar and turn the salt into a pearl. Just like in the matters of love, unless we are willing to forgive and heal, we would never be able to create something beautiful.

Sometimes, our salt, could be moving on after a broken heart; perhaps, recognizing that our parents are human and make mistakes; maybe accepting the lost of a loved one. But, most of the time, our biggest struggles are with ourselves.

A Blushed Ugly Duckling Turned Into A Swan!

Once upon a time, I wore glasses, had braces, suffered from blonde unmanageable curly hair, and was as skinny as a toothpick! My personal transformation went beyond a physical change. It meant growing emotionally, professionally, and accepting my flaws while embracing my good qualities. Although I have blossom, I still don’t take myself too seriously, and compliments still manage to make giddy like a little girl. When I’m flattered, I get totally blushed! Can’t help but turn red like a tomato, feel hot like if I was on fire, and become somewhat claustrophobic. Needless to say, I don’t take compliments very well. Perhaps I have the Ugly Duckling Complex?…

Lately, I have noticed that my skin needs a little extra love. I guess since I’m more active than usual with events, photos and traveling, the constant use of makeup its taking a toll on my skin. I suffer only from dry skin. It might sound like a blessing, but in fact, as we get older it could turn into a total curse. Having dry skin means that you are more likely to get wrinkles, lose elasticity, lack collagen, and therefore look older way faster.

Nobody wants that! The older we get, the younger we want to look! That’s why I’m offering you my tips for Luminous Skin and the ones that I learned from Dr. Barba from @ViveMejor during the #MujerDove twitter party with Dove. Also, on my Clearly Starstruck With Dove post I asked everyone to share their tips for luminous skin. Check the pics of my fave ones so far!

Confidence: the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something. What do you rely on? Yourself? Your family? Perhaps your significant other? How many times have you questioned your trust in yourself? How often do you wonder if you are been confident or if others perceive you as been confident? Having that trust in oneself determines our path, whether that might be career or love, because it gives us the push to go after what we want and believe in it. But its easier said than done…

When I had my children, part of that confidence in myself, slipped away. Sleepless nights, no “me” time and body changes, can take a toll in the way you see yourself. It did on me and getting that back has been one of the hardest things to do. Early this year, I had a small injury under my arm which left me with a dark mark. I think that was the last drop for me. Feeling embarrassed of even saying hi from afar, specially when you are as bubbly as me, it’s not a cool thing at all! That’s when I found my new BFF: Dove Clear Tone.
