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!

As per the previous invite, I hosted the Express Runway Fashion Show alongside Kate Upton (she was the secret babe), and a bouquet of blogger beauties! It was a great event! The Raleigh Hotel is known for having a beautiful outdoor pool and garden space, which became the home for the night, and I have to say the Express team certainly took advantage of that.

To nail the Sports Luxe trend you must keep pieces form-fitted and tailored, and choose soft fabrics like silk. I found everything I needed to channel my inner sporty glam spice at Express. Their new Spring collection its full of embellished tops, lace skirts and cut-out dresses perfect for spring break and summer. Not everyone does the frat party during SB, specially after 2 kids, which it’s why I chose this chic-laidback ensemble!

Once again, for the yearly ritual, I booked my flight and decided to brave the snowy and icy streets of New York in order to see the latest Fall collections. This season proved to be anything but smooth. Something called “Polar Vortex” invaded us, even in sunny Miami, and owned all the tv channels and air space. Flights canceled, cities covered in snow, and temperatures to the minuses were the dish du jour prior to the start of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York Fall 2014.

Cleopatra Meets Mona Lisa at Louvre!

Paris has always been one of favorite places to visit. The architecture, art, scenery, and fashion, have lured me in since very young. Walking the city makes you feel as if you were going back in time, and everything around it recalls a specific moment in history, and makes you feel welcomed to become part of it. As you can tell, I am a total history buff. I believe that knowing where we come from, helps us see where we are going, and make better choices about our future. There is a saying that goes: “those who don’t know their story, are sentenced to repeat it”, and I for one, wouldn’t like to walk someone else’s path.

At times we think we aren’t supposed to do something, or be somewhere, but I believe we are always meant to. I have learned that only by jumping, aka taking chances, and having faith that God or the Universe will be there to catch us, it’s that we are able to surpass our expectations for a happy and successful life.
