Hello! Happy Monday!

I’m thinking everyone is having a great Monday since it’s a holiday! haha I will be doing some work but also enjoying the day with a family bbq 🙂

These pictures are from Friday. The day was beautiful and I made some yummy oatmeal (brown sugar + maple syrup) with peach and kiwi. I normally eat oatmeal with peach because I like how sweet it tastes but I had some kiwi at home and decided to add it this time; it turned out to taste really delicious since the kiwi brings some tropical flavor to it. Very refreshing!

Hola!!

Es lunes pero es un dia feriado aqui en USA entonces supongo que casi todos estan teniendo un suuuper lunes! Yo voy a trabaja un poquito y disfrutar de un bbq en familia.

Estas fotos son del Viernes, el dia estaba super lindo y hice una avena super rica. La avena tiene azucar morena y miel. Casi siempre como mi avena con durazno pero estaba vez le anadi kiwi. No sabia como iba a quedar pero me encanto la verdad porque el kiwi tiene un sabor como tropical que es super refrescante.

Hello.
So, I wanted to write about the 5 days I spent in Burlington.
3 friends went to visit 1 friend. I have always known we were different but during this trip, I realized how different we are. 4 friends all with different passions and interests. It’s funny how things work, right? When we are younger we are attracted to people we think are similar to us but, years go by and everything changes. Sometimes we don’t notice how everything has changed until we stop and take a look around.
During this trip, I was able to see that. I didn’t really do any work stuff. I was just enjoying my time. One of my friends is a teacher, the other one is a psychologist, the other one is an environmentalist and I’m a business person. We visited my friends’ school(the environmentalist) and it was so cool to see everything in real life. It’s amazing to me how people can have such a deep interest in the well being of the environment. I do care about the environment but I don’t surround my world around it. Maybe I should. I dont know. Anyway, it was amazing to see how we are all different but how we are all interested in each others’ stuff, even if they are not that interesting to us personally. I think that is what friendship is all about. We probably don’t understand in each other 100% when we talk about daily lives but we do connect in such an emotional level. It’s magical.

I encourage everyone to take a look at your lives today. What are you missing? But most importantly, Who are you missing? Do you miss the way things used to be? Do you miss talking to them? Being interested in the same things? Well, maybe things won’t ever be the same, same but true friendships never go to waste. My best friend lives in what we can call a “hippie” city. I read fashion blogs everyday. We grow but our hearts remain the same. Don’t ever let go of the people that shaped you, they are all you’ve got. The rest…comes and goes.

Maybe tonight I’ll have a drink in the name of friendship. You should too.

A Day in Burlington

20140518-174954.jpg
Hi everyone!

If you saw my last post here, you know I’m in Vermont. I came to visit my best friend with some girlfriends and it has been great. I knew there was a lake and I knew there was mountains but I never imagined it to be this beautiful.

A day in Burlington includes: yummy breakfast, a morning hike or a morning biking session, yummy lunch, a stroll around downtown with a coffee in hand, a nap and a dinner followed with drinks. So, days in Burlington= beautiful life.

Hola!!

Si vieron mi ultimo post aqui la semana pasada, saben que estoy en Vermont. Unas amigas y yo vinimos a visitar a una de mis mejores amigas que esta en la universidad de aca. Sabia que habia un lago y sabia que habia montanas pero nunca me  imagine que iba a ser asi de lindo.

Un dia en Burlington consiste de: un rico desayuno, un hike o montar bicicleta, almuerzo, caminar por el downtown con cafe en mano, tomar una siesta, cenar y luego ir por unos traguitos. Un dia en Burlington=Linda vida.

Life: The Beautiful World

androbel, life, personal, lyrics, bon jovi

It’s a shame when they say that it’s been done and said
They keep digging that grave let them bury their heads
There’s a kid with a dream and a sky full of stars
There’s another first kiss in the back of some car
Turn a page and write the story

Hello! It’s Tuesday, which means I post something that has to do with life. As you may know, I’m obsessed with Bon Jovi and I play his songs in my car everyday. His last cd has been in my car for about a year now and I’m not tired of it. The lyrics above are from the song ” Beautiful World”. When you listen to this song, your spirit lifts up; it’s amazing how a song can suddenly change your mood, huh?

androbel, me, personal, lyrics, bon jovi, love

Well, my reflection for today about the song: Everything has been thought impossible until it was achieved. Don’t get discouraged. Everyday is a new day, full of possibilities. Everyday a new kid is born, a kid with dreams. Don’t let adulthood take the kid out of you.

About the 9-5

Hello little girls! How are you today?

It’s monday and this week marks my last day at my 9-5 job. wooho!! I’m happy, I’m about to start a new part of my life or maybe I’m just finally doing what I should have done from the beginning. In December, I will be done with my MBA (hopefully) and all this time I have been working full time plus trying to start and grow my own business. Yes, I’ve kind of been killing myself. I have this thought in my mind that goes something like this ” I’m 22, I’m young, I can do it all. I don’t have any real responsibilities, I can go nights without sleeping. I can do it all.” mmmm not true. after a year and some months, I have finally accepted the fact that there is no point in doing it all if you are doing them half way or maybe doing them but not really taking it in and learning along the way. Wednesday is my last day at work and I can’t wait to finally have time to be a real student and a real business owner.

Hola Hola!! como estan??

Es lunes, y esta semana marca mi ultimo dia en mi trabajo. woohoo!! Estoy feliz, estoy apunto de comenzar otra etapa de mi vida, o quizas estoy finalmente haciendo lo que tuve que haber hecho desde el principio. Como ustedes saben, estoy por terminar mi Master y la verdad es que me estaba volviendo loca. Estudiando tiempo completo, trabajando tiempo completo y tratar de crecer mi negocio, la verdad es que es mucho. Tengo un pensamiento en mi cabeza que va algo asi: “Tengo 22 anios, soy joven, no tengo responsabilidades de verdad, no estoy cansada, lo puedo todo.” La verdad del asunto es que, quizas si lo pueda con todo, y quizas si sea joven pero no le veo al punto a tratar de hacerlo todo sin hacerlo bien o quizas hacerlo todo y no aprender en el camino. Entonces si! finalmente pude vencer ese pensamiento que tenia en mi cabeza y sere una estudiante nuevamente :).

Life: This is It

20140502-084100.jpgHappy Friday!

I said this week was going to be crazy. April has been a crazy month and it’s about to come to an end. I’m all backed up in my classes and as you can see on the blog as well. I was happy though I was able to get this post on the blog this week. I hope you guys enjoyed it 🙂

Anyway, as I was saying… I’m all backed up in school work and regular work and I have a cold but yesterday was a day full of life. Woke up later than usual, worked out, had a great breakfast, worked, took a little nap, had dinner, went to the movies, got home at 2am. I’m tired. I’m tired as I write this and my eyes hurt for staring at a computer, iphone screen every day of the week but, that’s ok. This is what it’s a ll about. Work hard, play harder, right?

Feliz Viernes!

Como les dije, esta semana iba a ser un poco loca. Abril ha sido un mes demasiado loco y la locura esta por terminarse. Estoy super atrasada en clases y como pueden ver, en el blog tambien. Aunque esta semana estuve un poco mala con el blog, estoy feliz de que pude publicar esto. Estoy super emocionada por eso, espero que les haya gustado 🙂

Pero bueno, como les iba diciendo… Estoy atrasada con trabajos de la universidad y tambien con trabajos del trabajo y tengo gripe pero ayer fue un dia lleno de vida. Me desperte un poco mas tarde de lo usual, hice ejercicio, desayune rico, trabaje, tome un mini nap, cene, fui al cine, llegue a la casa a las 2am. Estoy cansada. Estoy cansada ahora que escribo esto y mis ojos me arden de tanto ver una pantalla sea en la computadora o en mi cel pero, esta bien. De esto se trata. Trabaja duro, juega mucho mas duro, verdad?

birthday, dad, daddy, daddysgirl, happy birthday, fashion blogger, miami, Today, It is my dad’s birthday!!

I don’t even know how to begin this post. A lot has happened since I graduated college in 2012. Things I would have never imagine could happen. Things that have made me so, so, so, SO incredibly angry at times and so incredibly sad at others because there is no greater disappointment than realizing that a person is exactly everything you knew he/she was but never really wanted to see it because you actually loved that person. I don’t think our lives are ever going to be the same and although that hurts, I’m starting to think and believe we are and will always be at a better place in our hearts.

birthday, dad, daddy, daddysgirl, happy birthday, fashion blogger, miami, Anyway, this is not supposed to be a sad post… it’s my daddy’s BIRTHDAY! This post is to show how happy I am to have my dad. I don’t often show my affection, my love nor my appreciation for him but it’s there, it has always been there. Now, more than ever, I know there is no greater person to have as an example to guide me through life. Through all the frustrations, stress, anger, sadness and disappointment, he never failed as a dad or a husband to my mom. There is just simply no better example of never giving up no matter how fast your world seems to be crumbling down. No better example of a pure, sincere heart.

Happy Birthday papi, I know you secretly stalk me… so, here you go!

birthday, dad, daddy, daddysgirl, happy birthday, fashion blogger, miami,

Ps. Mojito’s tonight after class ❤

Ps.2: Perdon para los que hablan espanol, cuando se trata de cosas asi, soy mejor expresandome en ingles :/ Igual, gracias por pasar por aqui. Hoy es el cumpleanos de mi papi 🙂
