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!!

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

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.

Needs & Wants #1

Friday!!! Where’d this week go? It’s been a very fun week. I’ve done lots of “non-work” things but has still managed to get work done and that feels good. I hate the “slacking” feeling.

Today, I wanted to start this new series! Needs & Wants 🙂 Every 2 weeks, I will post on Fridays a little list of things that I have spotted, I want or I feel like I NEED. I hope you like it and that you find some things new and exciting. Let me know!

It’s Spring and in South Florida that just means… it’s early summer. Prepare yourself. This past year, I have finally found my love for the beach. I blame it on Luis, his hipster ways and laid back outlook on life have gotten to me so, I want to make an effort and get more summery, beachy things in my closet!

Viernes! Donde se fue la semana? Fue una semana super divertida. Hice muchas cosas no relacionadas al trabajo pero igual pude hacer suficiente para no sentirme como una fracaso jaja odio ese sentimiento de que no haz hecho nada.

Hoy, quiero comenzar una nueva serie en el blog! Needs & Wants 🙂 Lo cual es: Deseos y Necesidades. Todos los Viernes cada 2 semanas voy a hacer una entrada como estas en la cual les dire que cosas nuevas he visto que creo que necesito y que quiero. Espero que les guste y quizas encuentren cosas que tambien quieren para ustedes!

Es Primavera y en el sur de la florida esto significa que… ya casi es verano. Hay que prepararse ya que aqui se pone caliente suuuuper rapido. Finalmente he encontrado mi amor por la playa. Culpo a Luis ya que me he acostumbrado demasiado a su forma de ser super casual y relajada. Ahora que me gusta la playa quiero hacer un esfuerzo es vestirme mas de verano!

Shop here:

  1. Nordstrom
  2. Sheinside
  3. Banana Republic
  4. Lori’s

Sorry that this post is written as if it was Friday. I was writing it on Thursday but then my computer stopped working! I really, really, really want the #4’s. They are beautiful, right?

Quiero las #4 demasiado!!

Have a great week!!

What pieces are you looking for this summer?

“You are what you…”

Well Hello!

With family in town is kind of hard keeping organized but thankfully I have a 9-5 job (for now) that keeps me away during the day so that I can actually get some work done and in that time I find little breaks in which I do this 🙂

As I mentioned here, I had class Friday night and Saturday morning. Although I love waking up early because I love how it feels when everyone else is asleep, there is something different about waking up to an alarm because you have to go to class! haha but, nonetheless I like it anyways. For class, I used to wear sweatpants and t-shirt when I was in high school but that just as “we are what we eat” I really think “we act how we dress”. If I want to lay around all day, sweatpants do the trick but if I want to get something done… this works best.

Holaa!!

Teniendo a familia en la casa es poco dificil seguir con mi cronograma de trabajo pero por ahora tengo un trabajo de 9-5 que me obliga a no estar en la casa por el dia entonces puedo ser un poco productiva, ya que en momentos en los cuales no tengo nada que hacer… puedo hacer esto 🙂

Como lo dije aqui, este fin de semana tuve clases el Viernes en la noche y el Sabado en la manana. Aunque me gusta despertarme temprano porque me encanta como se siente cuando todo el mundo duerme, hay algo super diferente al despertarte gracias a una alarma porque tienes que ir a clases! jajaja pero de igual forma, me gusta despertar super temprano. Cuando estaba en el colegio, me encantaba ir con calentadores (sudaderas) a clases pero ahora, al igual que la gente dice que uno es lo que come, creo que uno actua como se viste. Si quiero estar tirada en la cama todo el dia, unos calentadores van super bien pero si en verdad quiero trabajar… algo asi funciona mucho mejor.

Yea, I make funny faces when I have my picture taken. I find it very uncomfortable.

Good Morning and Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend; I did 🙂 I had class Friday and Saturday so I’m a little tired but it was still fun! Some of my family came into town and tonight my cousin arrives, so this will be a crazy week too. I kind of like crazy. It keeps me moving. Keeps me focused.

Last Thursday, we attended a networking event and met some cool people from the Miami area. All very young and creative 🙂 I posted a picture on my instagram about a little painting that was gifted to me; that’s the kind of creative I’m talking about. Cardboard, paint and a brush. Pretty cool!  This is what I wore:

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.
