Looking Back, Moving Forward

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♥

Miami Tropical Style

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.
