Hi everyone!

Nothing too special today. I wore this yesterday for a meeting. I went to the meeting, worked a little on Androbel, met up with Luis then with my sister and mom and then finally came home. I don’t know why but I love the feeling of coming home or just being at home; I feel cozy and safe… not that I’m not safe anywhere else but, when I’m home I’m calm.

Hope your weekend is fun, fun!!androbel, fashion, ootd, outfit, my style, gray, summer, miami, weston

Holaaa!

La entrada de hoy no es muy especial. Me puse esto ayer para ir a una mini reunion y despues me encontre con Luis y luego con mi mami y hermana y al suuper final devuelta a casa. No se porque pero me encanta estar en casa. Me gusta despertarme y estar aqui o despues de un largo dia… llegar a la casa me calma demasiado.

Bueno, espero que tengan un suuuper fin de semana!!

Hi!

I know, I’ve been missing for a while… this entire week! Sorry 😦 If you saw on my instagram or facebook, my best friend was visiting; she lives in Switzerland right now and I see her probably once a year for a couple of says sooo… I try to spend as much time as possible with her. Last Saturday we went shopping and I wore this little dress that I’ve had for a million years. It has a zipper in the middle so it makes it easy to try things on. When I go shopping, I wear a big, comfy purse so that I can just throw it over my shoulder and I have free hands!

Well, bestie left on tuesday and I catched up with school work and now I’m catching up with blog work 🙂

Hola!

Si, lo se… he estado super perdida esta semana en el blog pero si siguen mi instagram o facebook, creo que sabian que mi mejor amiga estuvo aqui visitandome, no pude coordinar tantas cosas. Ahorita esta viviendo en Suiza y como solo la veo un par de dias al anio, trato de pasar todo el tiempo posible con ella. El Sabado pasado estuvimos en el mall haciendo un par de compras, y este vestido me encanta para el mall porque tiene el cierre en la mitad entonces es super facil probarse cosas. Cuando voy de compras, me gusta usar bolsos grandes que solo me los cuelgo en el ombro y no tengo que tener mis manos ocupadas.

Bueno, ya mi amiga se fue el Martes y aproveche estos dias para ponerme al dia con cosas de la universidas y ahora me toca ponerme al dia con cosas del trabajo 🙂

Good Vibes Look

Hi!

Seems like ages ago that I did a solid outfit post. Again, I blame it on April being a “Crazy” month. I’ve been having a lot of fun but it becomes difficult to keep up with work things and then it gets a bit stressful because I don’t like falling behind.

Anyway, I wore this outfit on Tuesday and this first picture, I chose it because it transmits such simple happiness. Tuesday was a good day. I think good days happen when we feel prepared, when we feel we can have control of a situation. On Monday, my yoga teacher said something along these lines.. “ when we feel secure, when we feel safe in a situation, in a stage of our lives, we feel free. Only when we feel free, we allow ourselves to grow, to move into new horizons.” I loved that she said that, because for some reason, that’s how I feel. In the next couple of weeks, I will be making some changes in my life, and it’s risky and I have no answers… but something tells me, it’s ok. It’s all part of the plan.

Hola!

Pareciera como si la ultima vez que hice una entrada sobre mi look hubiese sido hace anios. Quizas es porque este mes la verdad que ha sido super loco y no para jaja. He hecho cosas muy divertidas pero es dificil hacer tiempo para todas la cosas del trabajo y aveces (o mejor dicho, muchas veces) me estreso, porque odio el sentimiento de estarme quedando atras con mis cosas.

Bueno, este look lo llevaba el Martes y escogi la primera foto porque me parece que transmite una simple felicidad. El Martes fue un buen dia. Creo que los dias que uno clasifica como “buenos” es cuando nos sentimos preparados, cuando sentimos que podemos controlar una situacion. El Lunes, mi profesora de yoga, dijo algo asi: ” Cuando nos sentimos seguros de nosotros mismos, seguros sobre una situacion o una etapa de nuestras vidas, nos sentimos libres. Es solo cuando nos sentimos libres, que nos damos la oportunidad de crecer, de conocer nuevos horizontes.” Me encanto que dijera eso porque es como me estoy sintiendo ultimamente. En las proximas semanas, estare haciendo unos cambios en mi vida, y aunque es riesgoso y no tengo nada solucionado, ni cosas aseguradas… algo que me dice que no importa. Es todo parte del plan.

A Day in Androbel: Update (Spanish Version)

ebb5c-dsc_0311

Hola!

Hoy les queria hablar sobre unos cambios que estan pasando en Androbel. Como muchos de ustedes saben, Androbel estuvo planificado inicialmente para ser una tiene online con una variedad de ropa y accesorios. Bueno, lo he pensado muchisimo, y aunque Androbel como tienda, no cerrara, me estare enfocando en otros proyectos como este blog y ofreciendo servicios profesionales. La tienda online quedara con la ropa que me queda y en el futuro para piezas especiales que me llamen la atencion como por ejemplo: las joyas de Tatiana Cruz o la linea Ladzal Cah pero no traere ropa muy comercial, creo que mejor le puedo dejar ese trabajito a las super tiendas. En verdad si me encanta la moda por eso sigo con este blog y estoy comenzando a ofrecer servicios en la industria de la moda pero en verdad no creo que tener una tienda es mi llamado (hablare sobre esto en otra entrada <3).

Bueno ahora que ya saben mas sobre el viejo Androbel, quiero hablarles un poco sobre el nuevo Androbel!

Androbel es un destino de Moda – Negocios  y la Vida.

Con el blog, quiero escribir sobre estilo personal, belleza, salud, ejercicios, musica, libros, y en verdad de cualquier cosa que nosotras, las mujeres tenemos preguntas al respecto. Hay muchisimas cosas pasando alrededor del mundo y quiero crear un espacio en donde comienzas o terminas tu dia con una sonrisa.

El lado comerciante de Androbel consistira de:

  • Entradas de blogger (styled products, sponsored posts, product placement, giveaway)
  • Asesoria de moda para individuos (personal shopper, orginazadora de closets, asesoria de imagen)
  • Asesoria de moda para marcas/tiendas (prevision de tendencias, viajes de compras, in-store merchandising, photo shoot styling)
  • Consultoria de negocios
  • Administracion de cuentas de social media (facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram, administracion de blog)
  • Mini tienda online

Si alguien de ustedes esta o conoce a alguien que pudiera estar interesado en estos servicios, mandenme un mail a mbaquerizo@androbel.com 🙂

Entonces, para dejar esto un poco mas claro… NO estoy cerrando Androbel, solo esta sera una nueva etapa y con nuevas cosas que ofrecer, las cuales me apasionan demasiado!

aa20b-dsc08078

Por ahora, hay una SUPER promocion en la tienda. Hay cosas que tienen hasta el 50% de descuento woohoo! Y si no encuentran nada que les guste dentro de la promocion, pueden usar el codigo “LUSHTOBLUSH” para recibir el 20% de descuento.

Que piensan sobre esta nueva etapa?

Gracias por pasar por aqui 🙂

A Day In Androbel: Update

Hi!

Today I wanted to talk about Androbel and the changes that are happening. As some of you may know, Androbel was intended to be solely an online boutique offering awesome clothing and accessories. Well, I have really thought about this and although Androbel will not be closing, I will be shifting my focus more towards the blog and different services. I will keep the online store for special pieces that catch my eye. I’m interested in handmade products; pieces that have a meaning behind, is what I will keep bringing to the store little by little. For now, you have some clothes and then the handmade jewelry from Ecuador and the handmade pieces from Guatemala. I do love fashion which is why I’m doing the blog and services surrounding fashion but I just don’t think having an online boutique is what I was really meant to do. (I will talk about this in another post <3).

Well, now that you know about the status of old Androbel, I wanted to introduce to you, the new Androbel!

Androbel is a Fashion – Business – Life destination.

With the blog, I (Belen) intend to write about personal style, beauty, health, fitness, music, books and just about anything and everything that us, girls, have questions about.There are countless things happening in the world around us therefore my goal with this blog is to create a space where I can impact someone’s life. To create a space where someone can get lost and just… smile.

The business side of Androbel consists of:

  • Blogger posts (styled products, sponsored posts, product placement, giveaway)
  •  Fashion consulting for individuals (personal shopper, wardrobe consulting, closet organizing)
  • Fashion consulting for brands/shops (trend forecasting/buying trips, in-store merchandising, photo shoot styling)
  • Business consulting (inventory turnover, buying budget, break-even analysis, etc.)
  •  Social media management (facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest, blog content management)
  • Mini online boutique

If you or anyone you know might be interested in these services, email me at mbaquerizo@androbel.com 🙂

So, just to make this clear… this is NOT the end of Androbel, it’s just a new phase that I’m really, really passionate about. 

The good stuff? There is a BLOWOUT sale going on right now at Androbel most of the things are 50% off! And if you happen to like something not on sale? use coupon code “LUSHTOBLUSH” for 20% off.

Life: 3 Qualities for Success

work, androbel, business, business talk, online shopping, online store, polka dots, black, tops,

Hello!

Ok. I apologize about this week’s crazy posting. Life posts are usually on Tuesdays but like I said here, this week was a little crazy, so I guess this week we have 2 “life” stories.

On Wednesday, I started classes again (I’m almoost done. yay!) and for the 1st class, my professor asked us what qualities we thought every entrepreneur or every professional should possess. Of course everyone said: intelligence, vision, drive, energy, etc. and then I think someone said, success can’t be taught, it’s in you.

Well, my professor then picked the 3 top qualities, he has seen prevail through-out his entire career and he numbered them like this:

1. Passion

2.Work Hard

3.Work Smart

“With passion comes persistence but you have nothing if you don’t work hard but it doesn’t matter if you work smart if you don’t work smart”  he said.  Genius. It’s actually real simple, yet no one in the class ever mentioned “work smart”. Funny thing is, passion can’t be taught and your work ethic can’t be taught either so when the guy in the class said: “success can’t be taught” he was almost right. The only thing that can be taught is: the process of working smart.

Hola!

Perdon que esta semana he estado un poco loca con las entradas en el post. Normalmente los Martes hago los posts sobre la vida pero supongo que esta semana como les dije que iba a estar un poco loca, habran 2 jaja.

El Miercoles comenze clases otra vez (ya casi termino woooho) y para el primer dia de clases, nuestro profesor nos pregunto que cualidades pensabamos que eran necesarias para que una persona triumfe en el mundo de los negocios. Obviamente que todo el mundo en la clase dijo cosas como: inteligencia, vision, motivacion, enerfia, etc. y alguien en la clase dijo que el triumfo en los negocios no se puede ensenar.

De ahi, el profesor escogio 3 cualidades que el ha visto que han funcionado mas durante toda su carrera profesional, y las numero asi:

1. Pasion

2. Trabajar duro

3. Trabajar inteligentemente/ estrategicamente.

Y luego dijo algo asi: “Con pasion viene la persistencia, pero no se logra nada si no se trabaja duro pero al trabajar duro no consigues nada si no trabajas inteligentemente.” En verdad parece super simple pero por alguna razon, nadie en la clase mencione la caracteristica #3. Entonces, cuando el chico en la clase dijo que el triumfo en los negocios no se puede ensenar, estuvo casi 100% correcto. Lo unico que se puede ensenar son las estrategias de como trabajas.

A Day in Androbel: Lynn University Fashion Show

Hello!

Sorry, I was missing yesterday… I’ve been working on some “Blogging” things. Hopefully everything works out!

On Tuesday, I attended Lynn University’s Annual Fashion Show. Lynn University is where I graduated college from and I love the school because it inspired me and made me believe in my dreams. I was so happy when they asked me if I would like to feature some Androbel’s clothing on the show! I met with the stylist, Aimee Austin a couple of times to get everything in order. I wasn’t able to take pictures with my camera but, the photographer at the show was able to capture some moments. Enjoy!

The first top, you might remember it from here 🙂
lynn university, fashion show, silk, tank top, modelHola! Perdon que ayer no estuve por aqui pero estaba haciendo algunas cosas sobre el blog. Espero que todo salga bien 🙂

El Martes estuve en el Fashion Show de Lynn University que fue donde me gradue de la Universidad y en verdad le tengo mucho carino porque fue el lugar donde me inspire y me ayudaron a creer en mis suenos. Cuando me pidieron si podia dar algunos productos de Androbel para usarlos me puse super feliz! Me reuni con la estilista Aimee Austin para poner todo en orden; no pude tomar fotos con mi camara pero aqui tienen algunas que tomo el fotografo del show. Disfruten!

La blusa de la primera foto, la vieron por primera vez aqui 🙂

Lynn university, fashion show, dress, purple dress, tribal print, modelI interviewed Aimee because when I met her she was so nice and I loved the way she worked so I wanted to learn a little more about her.

1. Why fashion? What does fashion mean to you?

Fashion means everything to me. No one knows how much dedication, passion, and motivation it takes to be in the fashion industry. I love how it’s something only people in the industry can understand. I’ve been into fashion since I was a toddler, I would glue fabric together to make outfits for my Barbies, and then when I went into High school I took fashion class, and learned how to sew. My first fashion show I was 15, and I made all my outfits with “recyclables”. I remember a made a skirt out of cut up soda cans and hot glue. Fashion is expression, personality, and confidence. Everyone wears sweats pants, jeans, or tank tops but to someone who is in the fashion world everything is another way of showing a different side of your, and everything has potential to do it, even sweat pants.

2. High fashion or everyday/street fashion?

I’m from Miami, so definitely STREET FASHION!

 3. What’s your dream job?

I want to be stylist. I don’t know of what yet(magazines,shows,,celebs,etc) but I’ll style everything and anything until I find out.

4. Where do you find inspiration?

I am from Miami and am from a mixed background so I have always been inspired by different cultures and my environment. Also by my mood some days I feel edgy and urban,other days I feel girly, and my mom has alot to do with it too. No one knows but majority of the time I am wearing things from her closet

5. And a fun question: mojitos or cosmopolitans?

Mojitos!
