Hi Good Morning!

It’s Sunday night right now and we just got home from the beach. We went to this very, very relaxed beach on the other side of Florida called Bonita Springs. I actually was expecting something else because I’m used to the beaches on the east side of Florida and was a little confused but it was pretty and awesome and relaxing. My instagram has a couple of pictures if you’d like to see what I’m talking about 🙂

I wore this I think to weeks ago to a little garage sale we were a part of. It started at 7am and ended at 1pm but as you can see it was a rainy day so we had to leave early  but it was still a great experience. I love waking up early haha.

Hoola!

Acabamos de regresar de la playa. Hoy fuimos a una playa del otro lado de Florida como para hacer algo diferente y en verdad me estaba esperando otro tipo de playa ya que estoy acostumbrada a las playas de lado Este de Florida. Fue la primera vez que fuimos a Bonita Springs y en verdad me termino gustando muchisimo porque era super linda y demasiado relajante jajaja en mi instagram hay algunas fotos si quieren ver de lo que estoy hablando 🙂

Hace un par de semana fuimos parte de un garage sale que comenzaba a las 7am y terminaba a la 1pm pero como pueden ver el dia no estaba nada lindo entonces nos tuvimos que ir temprano. No importa, igual me gusto haber ido. Me gusta desptertarme temprano jaaja

Blogger Love: Olia Majd

Hello Beauties!

I’ve been in a little rut this week with lots of things happening around me but it’s FRIDAY and I just couldn’t pass on this post because it means so much to me.

I stumbled upon Olia’s blog, Love, Olia a little while ago and I loved it immediately because of how happy she looked in her pictures! Of course, I also loved her style because it’s casual but very very cute and lady-like. She always incorporates elegance into her looks, which is something I adore.

Well, I started talking to her and I was really, really happy because she’s the nicest girl ever! Anyway, I haven’t met her in person but I’m sure she will be just as amazing.

I did a little interview just to get to know her a little better and this is what I found out!

 1. 3 words that define you?

Dedicated, Loving, Hard Working (okay, that’s two words 😉 )

2. . Do you have a full-time job? If so, how do you manage to blog at the same time

Yes, I have a full time job. Somehow I manage to blog at the same time! I’m not going to lie, its a LOT of work but I love blogging so much that I look at it as a release and enjoy putting in the hours aside from my day job.

3. Casual or lady-like?

I’m very much lady like!

4. Prints or textures?

Prints. I love fun prints and trying to wear them without it being too overbearing. Not enough women wear enough of them!

5. Where would you like to go, next?

I have a dream or hope that blogging will soon become my full time job. Lets cross out fingers!

After thoughts: 

Loving and hardworking: yes! I can see that in every post. Also, crossing my fingers that blogging will end up being her full-time job… she deserves it!

You can keep up with her by checking out her blog, here and also like her facebook page 🙂

Life: What To Do When You Have Lost

8d81bb71221df17492731daf46b55ef0

Hello There!

So, I have been wanting to write a post like this for 2 weeks now. You probably don’t know this but, I’m a huge fan and lover of Rachel Brathen aka Yoga Girl. I was introduced to her instagram account I think a little over a year ago and I love the way she carries herself and the trust, passion and love she has for life and this world in general.

2 weeks ago, something terrible happened to her. Her best friend passed away from a car accident. Her whole world crumbled into pieces and she was lost (Of course I know this because of her updates on Instagram, I wish I was her real friend) she was angry at the world, she was angry at herself and she was even angry at her friend for not “letting her know”.  Reading her posts touched my heart because I could relate. Rachel said that it was thanks to Andrea (bff) that she is the person she is today, it was thanks to Andrea that she entered the world of adventure and uncertainty. They met when Rachel was 18 and had recently moved to Costa Rica and was lost; she didn’t know what she wanted to do, all she knew was she wanted a change, she wanted to be better and Andrea changed her world. Rachel moved to Aruba when she met a boy, Dennis and she said she “had a feeling” and so did Andrea so she packed her bags and off she went. Rachel is now 25 and still lives in Aruba with Dennis and they are getting married this year. Andrea was going to be the bridesmaid and then in a split second their lives changed forever.

2 years ago, I was in a similar position. I was 20 and I was lost. I was in college but I just wasn’t present. I really didn’t know what I wanted although I thought I did. That time of my life is a complete blur because I don’t remember most nights (too much partying) and because honestly I was hurting too much I don’t really want to remember. One night (yes, partying again) I happened to meet a guy. He was 22. He had a great smile. We were introduced by a common friend and we danced, danced. I left early because I had class the next morning but he asked for my phone number and said we would go for lunch the next day. Guys these days are not very trustworthy so I didn’t expect anything but just as I was leaving from class, he texted me. We had pizza. Anyway, this is not a love story but I wanted to tell you how we met. This guy changed my world completely. He taught what really matters, he taught me to smile, he taught me know my self-worth, he taught me to be restless, he taught me to live in the moment, he taught me to live. Whenever I needed something, he was there. No matter how late at night it was, he always answered. He was my guide, just as Andrea was Rachel’s guide. Well, you guessed it right. Destiny played its part and off he went. Just as Rachel was mad, I was also mad. Mainly at myself. He had taught me to show love and appreciation and I let days pass because I was “too tired” to text him (whatever that meant). Anyway, my guide left this Earth and it was an extremely sad time. It’s still sad.

Well, As I read Rachel posts, it took me back to that time and I posted something on his facebook wall and his sister answered:

“Ha saputo unire nazioni e continenti. Conosciamo persone in tutto il mondo grazie a lui, persone meravigliose sono entrate nella nostra vita grazie a questa persona meravigliosa. È tutto, e ci ha lasciato tutto. L’amore reciproco che ci ha lasciato e qualcosa di grandioso e potente.”

Which means: “He knew how to unite nations and continents. We know people all around the world thanks to him, marvelous people have entered our lives thanks to this marvelous person. He’s everything, and he has left us everything. The love he as left among us is something grand and powerful.”

Truth, truth, truth. so much wisdom in her words, it amazes me.

Rachel met a girl that changed her life, that shaped her life. I met a boy that did the same.  We never, never know how things are going to turn out, no matter how much planning we do. The truth is, life is already planned, planned by forces we cannot control.

The way I see it is, Andrea changed Rachels’ life and helped her be the person she was always meant to be. Andrea was always destined to leave this Earth faster than all of us because life is like that.  The great always leave us behind because we are slower at learning the gist of life. It took me 2 years to accept this and it’s still difficult but, when I talk to Luis, and when I spend more and more time with him and he tells me he loves me… all I can think of is, he loves the person Adriano (my friend) shaped. So, the way I see it is, I may have lost him physically but he is still here, he’s with me keeping me in line, he sent me Luis for me to never forget how wonderful life can be. This is more difficult to explain than I expected but what I’m trying to say is… maybe Rachel’s best friends gift to her was not the way she changed her life when she was 18 but, Dennis himself.

Ok. So my point its. What are we going to do? We have lost our guides, there will be times when we feel alone, when we feel life could be better but we have to remember life is still wonderful. Our beautiful friends left us a beautiful gift even if they didn’t know they were doing so. So, what’s my point you ask? Give back. Live Life with intention. Every single day. Take it all in, breathe it in and then let go. Easier said than done, I know but practice is all we need.

Well, I hope I didn’t bore anyone. Sorry for this being too long.

I wish everyone meets that 1 person that completely changes your life and I hope you all remember to live life if destiny gives you a punch in the back.

Xo, Belen

Into the Woods

Monday: Hello!

Went to sleep at 10:30 pm last night and it felt great. Haven’t done that in a long time and I can say I feel rested. So, hopefully this will be a good week 🙂

These pictures are from last Thursday which was the 1st day of Spring but since the days get really warm really fast down here in Florida I thought I could give my cool pants another day. Actually, I’m going to wear them more because they are actually not thick so they work for warmer days too and I loveee the stripes. I was going to wear them with this kimono but realized it would make a “too dark” outfit and I’m actually not that edgy. This is me being, fake edgy haha.

Anyway, Thursday was a cute day. I had Brazilian food with Luis and then we just chilled, talked and just hung out 🙂

Lunes: Holaa!

Anoche me fui a dormir a las 10:30 pm y se sintio riquisimo. Hace mucho tiempo que no me iba a dormir tan temprano pero lo necesitaba y ahora en verdad siento que he descansado un poco 🙂

Este look es del Jueves el cual fue el primer dia de Primavera pero como aqui en Florida el calor llega demasiado rapido pense en usar mis jeans super cool una ultima vez. La verdad es que despues de usarlos me di cuenta que los podre usar aun mas porque no son nada gruesos entonces no  dan calor. yay! Menos mal, porque me facinan las rayas. Iba a usar este kimono ese dia pero cuando me lo puse me di cuenta que hacia el look muy, muy oscuro y la verdad es que tampoco soy taaan “edgy”. Es mas, esta soy yo tratando de verme cool con mis jeans y botitas jajaja

Pero bueno, ese dia fue super lindo fuimos a comer comida Brazilera con Luis y despues solo chilleamos 🙂

Blogger Love: Megan Elliot

lushtoblush, fashionblog, meganelliot, snow, blogger, miami, atlanta Hello There!

I’m excited to start this new series because I get to talk to some really cool people. I have a deep admiration for bloggers. Not only because they own their own business but because it takes a lot of time, effort and passion. I read blogs everyday and everyday I find new ones and I’m always just impressed at how much dedication and hard work goes into creating one. A good one. One that is genuine and personable. One that really tells you things for what they are and not because their are being sponsored.

I found Megan’s “Lush to Blush” because she commented on mine and loved it from day 1. I love the way she writes to her readers because you can tell she does it from the heart. I obviously love her style and overall I just love her easiness about life. Reading her blog everyday… makes me calm, makes me happy! So… I did a little interview to her and then she gave me her current favorite items from Androbel Boutique :) Enjoy!

1. What’s the 1st thing you do when you wake up? Check email and instagram! I’m obsessed.

2. Prints or Textures? Why? I think prints. They’re more fun to play with in my opinion!

3. Bright colors or subtle colors? Why? I LOVE neutrals. I like building my wardrobe with neutrals and then adding color with accessories.

4. Favorite thing to do on a day off: I love spending the day outside, maybe having a picnic, checking out the farmer’s market and of course, shopping!

5. 3 words that define you: This is tough. I would say: Sagittarius, Happy, Honest

A Day In Androbel

Slide1

It’s that time of the week! So, so fast. Well, first of all, Hello. It’s 1:37am and I just remembered I needed to set up the blog for tomorrow. It’s been a busy day; not all of it was good but, it’s ending on a good note and that’s what matters.

Anyway, today I bring to you a little shoot I did with Luis this past Saturday. We wanted to do something for our little collection called “LADZAL CAH” which is all about living the “Alegre” life aka “The Happy Life”. Through artisan, handmade products from Guatemala we aim to form a community and remind everyone to just sit, relax and be happy. We are able to remind people about this because of the happy colors used in all of the products. See here & here 🙂

This was a short shoot because the sun was coming down but it was a happy one! Check our Instagram today for a cute video clip <3.   DSC_0158
Y llego el dia de la semana en el cual hablo sobre Androbel! Que rapido! Hoy fue un dia muy ocupado y no todo el dia fue bueno pero esta terminando bien y eso es todo lo que cuenta.

Hoy les traigo un mini shoot que hice con Luis el Sabado. Queriamos hacer algo para nuestro mini proyecto que se llama “LADZAL CAH” con el cual tratamos de transmitir el mensaje de vivir la vida “Alegre” y formar una comunidad concentrada en la felicidad que se puede obtener con solo sentarse y relajarse un poco. Los productos artesanales hechos en Guatemala nos ayudan a transmitir este mensaje gracias al diseno y los colores felices usados. Miren este y este 🙂

Fue un photoshoot corto porque el sol se estaba ocultando pero fue super divertido! Chequen mi Instagram hoy para ver un mini video que hicimos ❤
