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.

Sandy

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. 











Besitos,

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.

Lost Files

Hola Mi Gente (Hello My People). 

I was looking through some images and found this look that I absolutely adore. 
Strolling through LES after a great meeting and it was freezing... ughhh the cold is a'comin. 

Some people believe that pieces can only live through one season, fashion season that is. No me. I strongly believe in wearing what you want, when you want. Y Porque no (And why not)? White year round, Yes! Suede or calf hair booties year round, Si (Yes)! 

This outfit was about 7 hair colors ago, maybe two winters and I would still (and will) rock that same exact look (if it fits!) Pieces in your closet don't have to have a shelf life. Trends will come and go, but your Style is ever evolving. Embrace it. These booties are over 2 winters in and I STILL LOVE THEM. I always get tons of compliments when I wear them and guess what, they get better with time. 

Remember, keep your favs, ditch your question-ables. 









Detalles (Details): Cole Haan Coat, Madewell booties, H&M skirt and Peplum top.

SAM SMITH... THAT IS ALL



You know, just chatting cause we go way back (not really, but it looks like it right?).
No, in all seriousness, this concert was up there with Adele and Coldplay, which are my two favorite shows of all time. The soul that comes out of this being is astounding.  And he was sweet as pie.

I absolutely love when I can take my blog pics en la calle (on the streets). The natural light and scenery provide such a vibrancy. That being said, like many of you, it's so hard to find the time. I have a full time career, a full time business, a full time fitness schedule, a full time family, a full time home and a full time everything.

One full time that stands above all my full times, is my full time commitment to God. I try my hardest to be a good human above all things. We are all Far from perfect, but No importa (It doesnt matter) if you are spiritual or religious, goodness doesn't need interpretation. "Treat others as you would like to be treated" is truly a universal belief. 
Abrazos y Besos (Hugs and Kisses) are seen throughout the world. 

That being said, Tuesday is Bible Study night and luckily I was able to snap some pics on my way to church. Talk about killing two birds with one stone, well more like three, blog pics, dinner and church. All around a perfect Martes (Tuesday)









I love mixing prints and I love bold color combos. Don't be afraid to play with colors, prints and bold pieces. As long as you feel confident and swag-gish, that's all that matters.


Detalles (Details)
Gap pants, JCrew (Sold out, but they have some cute leopard) Leopard Oxfords, Madewell monogrammed tote, H&M Stripe top, Curls by Miss Jessies (Quick Curls). 


Besitos,

No New Friends...NOT TRUE

No New Friends.... No New Friends....NOT NOT TRUE!

They always say you rarely make friends after 25, but I must say, that is not true. My honey Raven recently got married, pero (but) before the marriage came the bachelorette party. And boy was it a great time. 

I had the pleasure of getting to know and forming what I feel like are friendships for life. Es raro (It's very rare) to have a group of women who are successful in their own right, beautiful in their own way and are all about inspiring and uplifting one another. We shared and laughed and laughed and laughed some more. Cheers to many many more viajes (trips). 

#ILuhYouPapi (Inside JA JA, just imagine hotties, Miami, a fire red yacht and J to the L O on full blast) Good Good times and Great Vibes. 

Special Shout out to the Girlie, JLo's zesty sidekick in this video and in real life, Danielle Polanco. 
Always reppin BX. True Talento (Talent)!


A month later, The ladies all re-grouped at the Parisian themed bridal shower (he proposed in Paris) and how gorgeous it was. Perfection really. I would expect nothing less from Raven and her fabulous bridesmaids. The decor, the location, the food, todo estuvo (everything was) special.  

From Paris to Brooklyn con mucho Amor (with lots of Love)













I am a busty girl (yes, that's true). That being said, I've learned to embrace those puppies. I work out, I do my best to stay healthy, so what's a girl to do but fall in love with her body as it is. 
I do this for me!
God made us all perfect and to his liking. 

EMBRACE YOU! Your PERFECT!





I absolutely love mixing prints. Matchy matchy is tacky tacky, always remember that. 

Los Detalles (The Details)
Crop top by H&M, Mermaid Skirt by Asos, Heels by Christian Louboutin (those foam inserts are amazing! I grabbed them at Duane Reade, real life savers. LOL. Leopard clutch by Clare V
