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

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?…

Dee as Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s!

Hello Darlings,
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Audrey Hepburn were a match made in Hollywood heaven.  Holly Golightly, played by Hepburn, is one of the most iconic characters in film history. The carefree New York “socialite”, seduced the audience with her pearls, diamonds and cigarette holder, all wrapped in the most sought-after piece of clothing of all times: The Little Black Dress. Even 50 years later, the imagery and styling of this movie it’s still relevant and influential in the world of fashion and beauty, and I could not miss the opportunity to play dress-up for a day!

Fashion Trends: Rosettes in Winter

Hello Frugalistas!
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

Everyone has a personal style. A unique way of showing their perspective on fashion, colors, prints and shapes. For me, it’s all about been eclectic and mixing uber-feminine pieces with edgy accessories. I love creating the contrast between classic silhouettes and bolder styles, giving to any design a fresher upgrade in a second! Sometimes we play it safe with neutral colors and pops of vibrant ones, and sometimes we go all out there combining textures and prints.
