Process : 

So, for this recipe you wanna have all your ingredients in hand because is a really fast process. So first, Chop your Kiwi and banana that you will use for garnish on top of the acai mix. after you have all this chopped and all your ingredients on the cooking table go a head and take you blender and pour in it the 4 acai frozen pure packages one banana and 1/2 cups of almond milk. blend until homogeneous but remember you want it to me thicker than a regular juice. It needs to have a pure consistency. 

Once this had been done go ahead and pour your pure into the bowls. this recipe will give you enough for two medium size bowls or one big bowl. Once you have poured your acai mix into the bowl go a head and add the toppings on to. Do not go easy on the granola or any of the toppings. the only one you wanna make sure you don't use more than you need to is bananas because of its the fruit with the most calories. other than that. Go for it..

How To Embrace Halloween in a not so traditional way

Nail Art

This Halloween I decided to give a chance to it. To be honest, Im not a big Halloween fan, I am a Huge Halloween fan ( the kind that plans on halloween costumes since september) and would do almost anything to embrace it to its fullest! This year I have decided to go with something rather traditional and out of the heroes and wings zone. I have decided to literally embrace halloween from head to toes. This year around not only my make up would be on point but my nails won't be those pink paled nail we wear for easter. This year its different! I decided to pay a visit to my nail artist, and came up with the three most popular and cool concepts for halloween Nail Art. Get your paper and pen and write down her info.

Minions And Rainbows

Minions And Rainbows Glitz version

How to : Umbrellas??

A year ago, I got the amazing opportunity to meet the talented artist behind these works of arts. An umbrella brand housed on the hart of new york city and exclusively design from top to bottom by self-taught swiss artist Laurence Groux. 

She has been creating artistic patterns from her original artworks for 20 years.Her deep love for nature is a constant thread in her work, and she loves the rain.

The distinctive smell, the calming sound… the enchanting colors of nature; it all soothes her soul.She considers the umbrella as being a cocoon; a divine dome of protection.

 So when faith, destiny, and serendipity handed her an umbrella template, she had to apply her designs to it, and it was love at first sight, sparks and all. She had found the One object making sense to her soul to create for others.And if nothing else, she wanted one of these umbrellas for herself!

"Laurence Groux strove to offer an exclusive and limited series of original designs.Her vision was to create stylish umbrellas to appear more like art pieces; a collector's item.Her love for craftsmanship, high quality and detail, directed her to find a manufacturer in France. There, she developed her first prototype.Her exquisite line of luxury umbrellas feature elegant designs and each comes with a choice of customized handle;a rich array of Italian leather handles and beautiful hand-sculpted maple wooden handles, hand-crafted in Italy." Laurence Groux

Love and care to the very last detail.

Her work reflects her integrity, authencity, and her romantic side for beautiful objects to be cherished as time passes.

Today, after a year of her working on this exclusive line of umbrellas which I had the opportunity to closely watch from its early stages she opens up the doors of her online store where you can find exquisite hand crafted umbrellas created from curated patterns taken from her previous works of art. 

http://www.laurencegroux.com

 

Im sure you where probably expecting a full on explanation on "How to" use umbrellas the truth is that there are certain pieces like this one that don't come with "instructions " Just venture. You can used them with a dress, or jeans, from day to night time. As said before " its timeless "

How to : An accessory for every season

Transitioning from one season to another is really hard as it is. Even harder is when are transitioning from the lovely summer days to the not so lovely winter days and that thing in-between called fall. For that transition we have the already talked about transition jacket which is perfect because we can take off and put in whenever in need. With accessories the story is a little bit different and more complicated, because duh who wants to have to take a necklace off and on every time the weather changes in a  day.. ( specially here in Texas ). Reason Why i have decided to give this weeks " How To " to the all accessories lover -everywhere you are we love you!. So, Let me introduce you to the transition necklace. One you can wear from summer to winter... 

 SUMMER *

I love to wear this on the summer, because for some reason I feel like its a lot harder to look polished during summer. Im not sure if its because all i feel like doing is being by the pool and nothing else but anyways, this necklace is grate for it because it gives a little bit of sparkle to any outfit. 

On this ocation i decided to go for a white shirt which is my to-go pick ( most of the time ) with some purple jean shorts with  printed blue high heels and a navy and gold purse. for this outfit the necklace was almost everything, it was that thing that connected the whole outfit together make it something you can wear for anything. to a sunday brunch to late night dinner..

Forever 21 top

Charlotte Russo Heels

 

FALL **

Fall is great because we already can feel the winter breeze but we are still able to use some of our summer stuff ( this is where that TRANSITION jacket  and Necklace comes in handy ) Some days we will have to gear up a little more but will be fine. 

As you can see, for this look the color pallet is already gone a little bit darker and we are starting to play with the colors for fall ( nutmeg, browns, nudes,) darker shades. I decided to pair the necklace with a wine tunic - which makes the necklace pop up a lot more with out being to bling bling, some ripped short cut jeans and sandals. Again what makes de whole outfit a whole is the necklace connecting the shoes with the hole look and making the color of the tunic pop up a lot more.

WINTER ***

In my opinion winter is the hardest season to wear accessories, why ? well for one its really hard to find the right accessory for when having to be all bundled up on clothes, usually having to wear scarfs of heavy coats don't leave room for much accessories. however, thats the reason why I loved this necklace. is so simple and easy that you are actually able to wear with scarfs and heavy coats. For this look I wanted to show you guys how this necklace works even with fur and it ads just the perfect touch of sparkle for the look.

How To: #theITbag ( be brilliant bag )

Weather its summer or winter a bag should always be the cherry on top of the pie when talking outfits. However, that is not always the case. Accessories in this case a bag, purse, or clutch can either make or break your perfect outfit, to avoid this there are #3 golden rules that you can follow so you don't become a victim of the disaster of a bad purse choice. 

Break the Myth

#1 Your Shoes and Purse should always be the same color 

As We all know a long time ago when cellphones didn't exist, people used to say that the purse of your choice should always be the same color of your shoes. WARNING, this is not the case anymore, a lot of times people make the huge mistake of getting a purse on a ( lets say ) green any tone just because they have a pair of green shoes any tone. IF ITS NOT THE SAME EXACT COLOR -Don't do it.  Break the rules and go with a color completely different, it will make you look super bold and will give your outfit a different edge 

#2 "You can't  use bright colors during the day" 

This is one of the biggest myths of all times, who said that bright colors are only allowed during the night? If, in fact adding a brilliant and bright bag to a pair of jeans is a classic rule for pulling of a great street style game. Personally I'm a fan of the mix and match of styles like fancy with urban. And adding a brilliant bag makes an outfit look cool during the day and suitable for the night. and you know what they say " behind every successful woman theres a Be brilliant bag" - Vanessa Posner 

 

#3 Size Doesn't Matter 

One common thing I hear often when talking with clients or doing some sort of styling is the myth that big bags are for the day and small bags are for the night. Let me break it to you, THIS IS NOT TRUE, depending on the outfit or the place you going you can always go with a big bag or a small one. The trick is to choose something that wether its big or small will add to your outfit without making you a victim of a purse disaster.

How To: Buttons Up/ White shirt

        As I have said before there is a list of particular items that every woman should have in their wardrobe. Among them, a button down shirt. Most people -and here I'm going to take the chance to speak to men and woman. Have the presumption that white button down shirts are only for corporate people. But today I will show you the beauty and versatility of a button down white shirt!  Following three picks on how to wear button down white shirts everywhere.

Abotonados : Camisa Blanca

       Como ya he dicho antes existen una serie de elementos los cuales una mujer nunca puede dejar de tener en su closet. Al pie de la lista tengo a las camisas de botones blancas. En mi experiencia como estilista y editora de moda muchas personas piensan que las camisas blancas de botones son solo para la oficina. Hoy me doy a la tarea mostrarles #3 nuevas maneras de utilizar camisas blancas de botones en todo momento, y de distintas maneras. 

#1up Tight

blog .jpg

 

For a casual but chic look for a Saturday afternoon or any other casual scenario. I took a very old white shirt I found in my closet. The beauty of this piece it's the details that we can see in the collar. I decided to close it up to the end and on top of it a really great brown overall. The great thing about this combination is that's depending on the accessories we can make it more casual or elegant. In this case I decided to go with casual, pairing it with gold Superga sneakers and a printed bag from Pineda Covalin that puts the outfit to a whole other level. 

Hasta arriba. 

Para empezar un look muy chic, perfecto para un sábado casual o no. Primero agarre una camisa blanca de botones que encontré en mi closet rezagada pegada a la pared, lo bueno de esta camisa son los detalles que podemos ver en el cuello y puños,  encima una braga marrón. La combinación de la braga con la camisa blanca es la perfecta combinación de algo comodo pero chic. Yo, decidi combinarlo con unos zapatos de goma de Superga color dorados y una cartera Pineda Covalín lo cual pone el look en otro nivel. 

#2 Up Club

If you are looking for that “ Meeting the in-law’s” look this is definitely the one. The combination of the really well tailored White button down shirt with loose blue tweed shorts pair with accessories in different shades of blue. The cobalt, light blue, royal and navy blue are what makes this outfit perfect for “those” occasions. HM Shorts-Zara Sandals- Louis Vuitton Bag- Tarbay Jewlery 

Alta Sociedad

Si buscas por ese look perfecto para “ conocer a los suegros “ o “pasear al perro en el downtown luego brunch en SAVOR” este es definitivamente el que buscas. La combinación de la perfectamente estructurada camisa blanca de verano con unos shorts de diferentes tonos de azules, en combinación con unas sandalias azul claro, cartera Louis Vuitton de color cobalto y joyas de Tarbay en distintos tonos azules. En esta combinación de elementos no solo la utilización de distintos tonos de azules pero tambien las diferentes texturas utilizadas son lo que definitivamente hacen de este outfit la combinación perfecta. 

#3 Up Down 

Monday morning, Wake up, and find yourself looking at the mirror, Thinking -What am I going to wear, but you realize. It’s Monday! Cheap Monday :  Jeans, a white button down shirt add those very comfortable wine pumps and a  leather jacket. Throw in a big clutch and some glasses! Believe me you are going to dress so fast next monday you won’t believe it. It’s so easy and chick its the perfect cheap monday! 

Tiempo record 

Es lunes en la mañana. te despiertas y te das cuenta que no tienes ni idea de que ponerte. Personalmente  en este momento es cuando creo que toda mujer debe tener una camisa blanca de botones. Nunca queda mal con nada y siempre esta a la altura de cualquiera que sea tu actividad del día. Rapidamente agarras una camisa blanca de botones, Boyfriend jeans o pantalones de tubo, chaqueta de cuero perfecta para los meses de transición (abril, mayo,Junio ). Dependiendo de tu ocasión zapatos altos y un clutch serian lo que yo escogería sin pensarlo. En este caso por tener el mismo color en los zapatos y la chaqueta decidí ponerme una cartera de resaltara un poco mas. Para finalizar lentes de sol y a correr.

2) Day Dress

A day dress is always important! is that perfect outfit that can work with heels and flats at the same time making you always look chic and cute!! Definetly a great option for a work outfit..

2) Vestido de día 

Un vestido de dia es una pieza muy importante en nuestro closet. Es esa pieza perfecta que funciona con zapatos de tacón alto así mismo que con zapatos bajitos pero siempre haciéndote ver super chic! 

3) Blazer 

Im a total fan of blazer, they are always the easiest way to dress up a T-shirt and a pair of Jeans, which makes for the perfect confortable outfit! Side note: Woman's Day Magazine named The Limited on their GVA ( great value awards ) for their suits in 2015.. So this is definitely the way to go. 

3) Blazer/Saco/Sastre

El blazer es la manera mas facil de subir de tono una franela y unos Jeans, lo cual hace el atuendo perfecto para un día el cual quieras esta cómoda pero chic al mismo tiempo. Nota: La revista Woman's Day Magazine nombro a The Limited en sus premios GVA ( great value award) como la mejor marca para blazers en el 2015.

4) Button Down Shirt 

As Tim Gun says this should be in every woman's dressing vocabulary. You can pair it with literally everything and it will always look good. Pair it with a skirt for a polished look, or under a dress as a jumper! Don't be afraid of it!! 

4) Camisa blanca Clásica 

Como dice el guru de la moda Tim Gun esto debería estar en el vocabulario de ropa de toda mujer. Esta pieza puedes acompañarla con literalmente cualquier cosa y siempre como resultado tendrás un look limpio e impecable. 

5) Black dressy pants 

This piece is just like the white shirt. works with everything. and makes every outfit a great outfit. the key to the perfect pair is the perfect fit and fabric anything else matters. 

5) Pantalones Negros de vestir 

 Esta es una pieza como la camisa clasica blanca. Es una pieza que no tiene tiempo. funciona con todo y hace cualquier combinación un outfit perfecto!

6) Trench Coat 

The trench coat its the perfect transition piece for those months where its cold and hot at the same time! A trench coat its always a great idea for a dress when trying to get a chic look and you can pair them with pant for a more urban look! either way this is definitely  a piece every women should have in any color on her wardrobe! 

6) Abrigo " Trench coat" 

Este tipo de abrigo en particular es siempre necesario cuando vives en zona templadas o frías, es también la pieza perfecta para los meses de transición de una temporada fría a una caliente y viceversa... es también usa pieza que pone el vestuario en otro nivel dándonos la oportunidad de sacar muchos estilos de una sola pieza! Combinalo con un vestido para un look chic y descuidado o combinalo con unos jeans para un look mucho mas urbano o preppy 

7) Good pair of Jeans 

Of course we all have jeans, the thing is that not everyone knows that if it doesn't fit you perfectly its not a good pair of jeans. If your interested on how to : Find the perfect fit for your jeans... don't g far because in the following week i will be posting about how to find the perfect pair of jeans.. 

7) El Par perfecto de Jeans 

por supuesto que todas tenemos sientas de jeans en nuestro closet, Pero, realmente esto cientos de jeans que tenemos en neutro closet cuales nos quedan bien y cuales tienen en ajuste perfecto a nuestro cuerpo! La clave de un jean esta no solo en la marca y la tela pero por sobre todo en el Fit... Si te interesa saber como y que debes de hacer para que encuentre los pantalones con un fit perfecto en las próximas semanas tendremos un post de como encontrar el pantalón perfecto para tu figura! 

8) Skirt 

This is a difficult item to find. As Christian Dior says, there are only few woman who can wear every type of skirt. Only those who have slim waistline and no hips, the rest of us have to choose which one suits us better. One simple tip is that the simpler the skirt the better fit needs to be. Also if you are going for a full skirt which are my all time favorites its better to pick one that is either flared or pleated so you can have more control of the posible  extra fabric around your waist. 

8) Falda

Este es un item el cual es muy dificil,  Como diría Christian Dior, existen muy pocas mujeres las cuales se pueden dar el lujo de utilizar cualquier tipo de falda. Para esto se debe tener una cintura pequeña y no muchas caderas. Las demás debemos elegir muy cuidadosamente que tipo de falta utilizar. Mientras mas simple la siluheta de la pieza mejor ajuste al cuerpo debe tener! 

9) Cashmere Sweater 

"Cashmere will not pill, so this will be very, very serviceable in your wardrobe. You'll get a lot of wear out of it," Gunn says.

9) Sueter de Cashmere 

" Cashmere no pica , así que esto va a ser muy , muy útil en tu armario . Obtendrás un montón de uso fuera de él ", dice Gunn .

 

 

0) A great pair of shoes 

For this item i will advice, as i do with my clients to invest in a designer shoes. Preferably in black or nude ( im a all times nude fan) so you can use this item to the fullest. Make sure it fits you perfectly, walk a few times while trying it on.. Why is it a pair of good expensive shoes a need? Well im from the idea that one of the ways you can know if a person really invest in themselves is by their shoes and purses, Why ? the the most expensive part of a wardrobe! 

10)  Un buen par de zapatos  

En mi opinion este quizás es uno de las piezas mas necesarias en el closet de una mujer, y mas utilizadas también!! Si, la inversion en grande pero créeme que sera una inversion que vas a desear haber hecho antes. Antes de comprarlos asegurare de que sean tu talla perfecta y que puedes correr un maratón en ellos.. por que créeme que vas a querer que sirvan para eso! Si es tu primer par compralos en nude o negro para que les puedas dar mas uso..

"Normcore: The trend that will never go away" New York Times 
The portmanteau of normal and hardcore is the etymology of the word normcore. Introduced by the amazing JW's Andrew Skyrocket menswear collection that latter on became a women's wear collection and, also definitely my favorite trend EVER. I must say I was very hesitant at the beginning, I thought "sports shoes are only to be used on saturday morning for errands" I secretly thought "how come a pair of sneakers can look good with regular clothes on". However, living in New York city changed completely my perspective on this super cool and confortable trend. Above, 3 different options on how you can used those sneakers that you love so much without compromising you style ethic. First, we have the more relaxed look. Wide leg pants combined with a asymmetrical sweater, my favorite Lulu's black leather sneakers. Add to it some accessories and your ready for a day full of errands and lunch with the girls afterwards. Second, something a little bit more sassy, Knitted Cropped sweater, flared skirt and my lulu's sneakers. I add to it a vintage neck piece and a golden clutch to add a little bit more style and elegance to it. Finally, a dressier look. Perfect for those days that you are full of meetings and definitely need to look good but you are just not feeling the whole heels situation. THIS IS THE LOOK FOR YOU!! A cocktail kind of dress paired with my lulu's black leather sneakers is just the perfect combinations of Normal and hardcore. Add to it your something sparkly to make it more dressy, in this case I took a black sequence clutch and some cool accessories and ready to go.. 

 

"Normcore: La moda que nunca desaparecerá " New York Times 
El acronimo de las palabras normal y hardcore es la etimología de la palabra normcore. Moda introducida por el gran JW's Andrew Skyrocket colección para hombres que mas adelante se convertiría en una colección para mujeres. Hoy en día uno de mis estilo favorito de todos los tiempos. A decir verdad al principio estaba bastante dudosa de esta moda y pensaba "como se vería bien el ponerse zapatos de hacer ejercicio con ropa de diario" a honestamente los zapatos deportivos eran mi comodín de "sábados de diligencias", pero eran solo para eso. Sin embargo, al mudarme a la cuidad de Nueva York cambio muchísimo mi perspectiva acerca de esta super cool y cómoda moda. Arriba, podemos ver 3 diferentes opciones de como utilizar esos zapatos deportivos que te gustan tanto sin perder en la ecuación el factor estilo. Para empezar, un look perfecto para esos días de diligencias que terminan en cena con las amigas. Unos pantalones de bota ancha con un suéter asimétrico en combinación con unos Lulu's de cuero negro. Como segunda opción, tenemos algo un poquito mas atrevido; Una falda de tachones con un suéter cuello tortuga, mis amados Lulu's deportivos y para darle un toque mas chic y vestidor lo combine con una cartera pequeña color dorado y accesorios en combinación. Finalmente, el look perfecto para un día full de reuniones, pero en esos días en los que simplemente ponerte tacones se convierte en un esfuerzo. Un vestido tipo cocktail con zapatos deportivos y para darle el un poco de Bling-Bling en este caso yo agregue una cartera negra.

Dress it down?  YESS, but not that down. One of the pros of re-inventing the LBD "Little Black Dress" is that even when we dress it down you can still look fabulous.
