I Will Always Miss London

Every now and then me hace mucha falta Londres (I miss London). You may not know this but I lived in London in my early twenties. I had the time of my life. I made the most amazing life long amigos (friends) and I truly fell in love with the city.  Our flat was right in central London, off of Oxford Street, literally up the street from Topshop and Selfridges and Covent Garden, Ughhh Perfection. The flat itself, was... hmmm how would I say, not fancy! Pero (But), that didn't matter because some girls in the most amazing gorgeous flat upstairs became my hunnies. Rima and Katie, man did we have great times? Class, party, shop, travel, in no particular order :) to be young and free. 

I am blessed to still be young (LOL), free and live an amazing life, but my years in London will always be very special. My whole ensemble this day brought me back to the UK. The paperboy hat and collegiate blazer in Navy, English staples for sure.

All great memories. Un tiempo muy especial en my corazon (A very special time in my heart).

Style tip: When you are busty like I am, I make sure to create dimensions. Meaning, I married this longer dress/top with a blazer so it doesn't give me that extra fabric look (almost like a baby doll). The blazer cuts the dress right at my hips to create a tighter "figural" appearance. Sometimes with large breasts, you can look a lot bigger then you actually are and since I'm not a fan of super form fitting clothes, I like to create dimensions, usually by layering or accessorizing with a piece like a scarf. Above all, Always have fun.

In August I lost my best friend. Some who have never had the beautiful experience of having a dog, may never understand the heartache that I continue to feel on a daily basis. You really don't realize what you have until it's gone, though Sandy was so special, that I remember loving on her and enjoying her every second of her life.

Ella fue tan especial en mi Vida (She was so special in my life). 

I went from a non-dog person to a lover of dogs. The story of how I even got Sandy is truly a sign of God's gifts. She came to me at a dark time in my life and since the day she became mine, I can honestly say, I was forced to be a happier human. Sandy was so special that 3 of our friends who were LITERALLY afraid of dogs, ended up getting their own dogs, after spending time with our SandStar! 

Podria hablar de Sandy por anos (I could talk about Sandy for years) and still not have expressed how amazing she was, So you can imagine the joy I felt when I went to the Converse store and had an instinctual desire to pay homage to Sandy with a portrait on my kicks. I was like, this could be weird but when I received the sneakers, I cried. The image of Sandy lands right on the area of my ankle where she loved to lay, lick, snuggle and walk side by side with her mama. I imagine her with me every single time I see those kicks. And I just love them! And I will always love her.

Laughter is the Best Medicina

The older I get, the wiser I get. 
Es verdad (its true). Cliche? Yes, but true. 

Life has thrown me curve balls and changes and has shown me love and loss, but slowly, and sometimes stubbornly, I have really learned to LIVE FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T. I'm a big believer in positive affirmations. I continue to learn and try my best to put this into effect in my life.  No one said la vida (life) would be easy, but it's definitely worth living. 

At times we get so caught up in what's NOT happening that we forget about what has happened. Where we have come from. Nunca te olvides de donde te trajo el SeƱor (Never forget where God has brought you from).

In the midst of the daily grind, our daily routines and schedules, remember to take a moment or two to just take it all in. To remember to breathe. To find room for laughter, hugs and honesty. To remember to pray for yourself but also for others. To remember to be thankful for waking up this morning! Imagine being the guy who didn't wake up? Imagine that!  

Recuerdate que (Remember that) someone out there, your neighbor, your co-worker, your sister could be dealing with life changing circumstances. It may even be you at his moment, but to appreciate the Sun, we must know the Rain.
