  • Let’s Be Thankful

    Let’s Be Thankful!!!

    We have a lot to be thankful for; waking up each morning, every breath we take, the ability to speak and walk, family and friends, being healthy and the list goes on. Often we overlook the simple things in life thinking they always will be there, not knowing that they can easily disappear when we least expect it. Only then, is when we come to really appreciate the things we no longer have and cannot regain.

    It is important to make God (if you are religious) and the Universe aware of how much we appreciate everything we have. Many wish for the things we take for granted and would do anything to have. On this Thanksgiving, I want you to take a few minutes to give thanks for the things you are grateful for.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Floral Dress in Autumn

    Floral Dress in Autumn

    Hope you guys are having a great day or night depending when you are reading this. Fall finally has arrived and so did the cool weather. However, that doesn’t mean we immediately have to pack up our summer dresses. Or does it?

    I have to say, autumn is my favorite season, especially when it comes to fashion. The climate is ideal to continue to wear summer dresses, as it isn’t so cold yet. Transitioning any summer outfit into fall can be as simple as adding a jacket, a pair of boots/booties, and/or a scarf. They don’t only help keep warm but also make for great statement pieces. The important thing here is to never have to sacrifice style while trying to keep warm.

    I paired the pink floral dress with simple black booties. The black booties were previously featured. I purchased them from Marshall last fall during one of those not-looking-to-buy-anything-trips. Those trips are the most dangerous to our wallet because we often tend to find stuff that we have been meaning to buy for a while but haven’t been able to for some unknown reason until that exact moment. Like a magic act, it magically appears right in front of our eyes exactly how we have wanted it. Even though we shouldn’t get it, we make the purchase. Our wallets are the ones who suffer.  Poor little wallets. Okay, Got off the tracks for a little bit :). Now back to the outfit. The dress is from the brand Lush and I got it at Century21’s end of the summer sale. To top it all off, I added a beige symmetrical patterns Armani Exchange jacket to keep me warm at night. Couldn’t find the exact jacket so I search for other similar jackets.

    And remember to always be authentic!!

  • Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock

    Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock….

    Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock, the fast ticking sound of the clock gradually invades my mind as each second pass by.

    Patiently I sit in front and watch the hands of the clock go from one number to the other.

    It wouldn’t stop telling time, doesn’t matter how much I want it to stop.

    Instead, the hands of the clock keep moving faster and faster, showing no sign of stopping or slowing anytime soon.

    As sudden as lightning seconds become minutes, minutes become hours, hours become days, days become weeks, weeks become months, and before I know it months become years.

    Then I wonder to where did the time go, as I’m still sitting in the same place watching the hands go around in circular motion countless of times.

    Like a splash of cold water, I soon realized I’ve fallen behind meanwhile time has gone way ahead.

    I desperately want to catch-up, but that seems impossible bringing indignation.

    Following by a great need to want to smash the damn thing so that it stop reminding me of the time I have wasted doing nothing.

    What good will it do if the clock tell time no more? No good at all, even if the clock is broken time will continue to pass regardless.

    Dwelling on the wasted time wouldn’t rewind it instead focus on the time you have now because it is the only time you are guarantee.

    Hi Loves,

    We squander so much time procrastinating that we vaguely realize exactly  how much time we have wasted doing nothing. No time machine or remote control would ever rewind or pause time if that was the case time would be not valuable. Time is one of those things that is very limited when it might seem otherwise. Once gone it can never be regained. It is human nature to leave everything for later, tomorrow or when one feels the time is right, which at the end is never right. Then I ask you, why wait for tomorrow or when you feel the moment is right? Tomorrow is just a promise with no guarantee. Right now is the only thing we have guaranteed, not a minute more or less.

    Recently, I have been thinking much about time and how much we tend to waste it. I’m guilty of procrastinating often thinking I have all the time in the world in my hand when that is not the case. Soon I realized I hadn’t done anything of whatever I wanted to do contemplating for the right moment to come. Then time has passed what it feels like a hundred miles per hour and yet nothing has been accomplished. If there is something you want to do but haven’t done, I encourage you to do it now and stop wasting any more time. You can invest the time you put into waiting into perfecting whatever is that you want to do. Time will go on no matter what, so it is our responsibility to take advantage of the time we have on hand before it slips away.
