Here's a Glimpse


Yesterday morning the screen on my phone cracked and I wasn't able to use it the entire day. After stomping, kicking and crying I decided to take the opportunity to use my DSLR instead. The good thing is that I let my eyes rest for a day (which felt really good) and I got a new phone today.
With my in-laws being gone for months now it's only natural that we start missing their cooking. It was an Indian/bengali night last night at my house. I made beef curry with potatoes, daal and a twist to the boring white rice; lavender rice. Hope you enjoyed this luscious and pretty random post.

Ayer por la mañana la pantalla de mi teléfono se rompio y yo no pude usarlo todo el día. Después de pisotear y llorando decidi utilizar mi camara en lugar. Lo bueno es que dejé que mis ojos descansaran por un día y me dieron un nuevo teléfono hoy.
Con mis suegros de vacaciones desde hace meses lo natural es que comencemos a echar de menos la comida de ellos. Fue una noche india / bengali anoche en mi casa. Hice curry de carne con patatas, daal y arroz blanco lavanda. Espero que hayan disfrutado este post.

In Uniform


Plaid is one of those things that immediately say school to me. No, not because of Gossip Girl but because, well, ok! maybe. Apart from being a naturally preppy combination Plaid should be a girls best friend. There's something about plaid that gives a women a nice shape. Maybe it's because of the lines? But it hasn't been scientifically proven yet. I know many of you used to fold the top of skirt to make it shorter, yeah, I am talking to you. But those days should be way behind now. Despite me being 5''2 I love the length this skirt gives me. You know, the perfect length? Not too sexy nor too boring, just right. 
It is a bit intimidating to wear something like this, I get it. You don't want to feel like you are wearing a costume or trying too hard to look like a school girl. Minimal is key. Don't try, just wear it. 


Tela escosesa es una de esas cosas que dicen de inmediato escuela para mí. No, no a causa de Gossip Girl, sino porque, bueno, ok! tal vez. Hay algo en la tela escocesa que le da a una mujer una forma agradable. Tal vez sea por las líneas? Pero no ha sido científicamente probado todavía. Sé que muchas de ustedes doblaban la parte superior de la falda para que se vea más corta, sí, estoy hablando con usted. A pesar de que yo sea 5''2 me encanta la longitud de esta falda. Ya sabes, la longitud perfecta? No muy sexy ni muy aburrida, lo justo.
Es un poco intimidante para usar algo como esto, lo entiendo. Usted no quiere sentir que está usando un disfraz o tratando demasiado duro para parecerse a una chica de la escuela. Minimal es la clave. No intente, simplemente use.

I Love NY


A little leather before Fall isn't as bad as it sounds. Believe me!
I paired this skirt with this casual tee shirt from Piccolini that can be dressed up or dressed down. 
Throwing on a blazer will always give you a sense of elegance no matter what you are wearing, mainly long blazers like this one. Naturally you can't forget the heels! 

Hope you have a good tuesday. Thanks for reading!

Un poco antes de otoño no es tan malo usar cuero. Créeme!
Me emparejado esta falda de cuero con esta camiseta casual de Piccolini que combina con todo. 
Las chaqueta siempre le dará un sentido de elegancia, no importa lo que tenga puesto, sobre todo chaquetas largas como ésta. Naturalmente, no se puede olvidar a los talones!

Espero que tengas un buen Martes. Gracias por leer!

Barry's Bootcamp | Love Rehab

Monday mornings are the perfect time to get inspired with workouts, healthy eating and new books to read. Last week I attended the unique celebration of Jo Piazza new book “Love Rehab: A Novel in 12 Steps”. As I mentioned on my Instgram, what better way to get in the best shape of my life than by working out with trainer Joey Gonzalez at Barry's Bootcamp to the best breakup songs of all time.


I won't tell you what the book is about because I would hate to be a spoiler, but, I will give you the blurb. 

"Sophie isn't dealing with her breakup well. Dumped by her boyfriend, Eric, for his sexting, D-cupped, young floozy McSecretary, Sophie leaves Manhattan and lands back in her hometown, crushed and pajama-clad, blaming herself and begging her ex for a second chance. 
But when her best friend, Anne, gets in trouble for driving drunk and is forced to go to an Alcohol Anonymous meeting, something clicks in Sophie's strung-out mind. Women need love rehab.
If you start it, they will come. When she opens up her home to the obsessed and lovelorn, Sophie finds a way to help women out there who have overdosed on the wrong men- and saves herself in the process." 

As a married women, this is an exciting, very girly and gossipy novel. Different from what I'm used to reading but highly entertaining.


It was such a pleasure meeting and getting to share an evening with Jo Piazza who is the executive news director of In Touch Weekly and Life & Style Weekly


I got the chance to work with Joey Gonzalez, a phenomenal trainer at Barry's Bootcamp. We were a group of 15-18 people and I felt like it was a one-on-one class. This Mr. Here is a badass trainer! I was complaining at how intense the workout was and didn't realize how good it felt the next day. I love working out, I do it daily, but this was on another level of workout [in a good way of course]. It was my first time here but not my last. I have never worked this hard nor sweat this much in my life, ok, I won't go into further details.

We all know that music makes you move. In this case it gets you in the mood to give it your all when working out, you know what I mean? The concept of the celebration of the book, the breakup songs and the workouts really made a fantastic combination.


Thank you Jo Pizza, Joey Gonzalez and Barry's Bootcamp for allowing me to be a part of this. Thumbs up to all the participants for doing an incredible job [believe me, it's not as easy as it looks].
& for all you ladies looking for some humor or a train ride read make sure to pick up “Love Rehab: A Novel in 12 Steps HERE.

How To Wear A Fedora Hat


Black and White lines Again I'm going with a pop of color for this Back-to-school look. She's channeling her Dorothy Gale with the two pigtail braids which adds a young and very innocent affect to the outfit. Remember 'Braids are In'! Pops of color is all the rave, as I mentioned before. When it comes to kids, less is more when accessorizing. This bold Fedora hat looks fantastic on young boys and girls. The best way of pairing it is by letting the hat be the main focus but still adding a little bit of the color thought the outfit. It is a phenomenal way to accessorize without over doing it. 

On the bottom I wanted to go with a soft yet solid finish. I added these Cherokee pants which are a great alternative for boring blue denim jeans. On the lowest point, I added these very comfy/modern and ultimately timeless flats that are good all year round.

Líneas en blanco y negro Una vez más voy con un toque de color para esta traje de regreso a la escuela. Ella está canalizando su Dorothy Gale con las dos colitas de trenzas que añaden un efecto joven y muy inocente. Pops de color esta a la moda, como he mencionado antes. Cuando se trata de niños, menos es más cuando hablando de accesorios. Este sombrero Fedora rojo tiene un aspecto fantástico en niños y niñas. Es una manera fenomenal para añadir accesorios sin agregar demasiado. 

Yo quería ir con un final suave y sólido poreso añadi estos pantalones color rosa de Cherokee que son una gran alternativa para los pantalones azules aburridos. En el punto más bajo, he añadido estos zapatos muy cómodos e modernos y atemporal que pueden usar todo el año.

I'm a Little Teapot


Lemon Loves Lime With New York having such nice weather lately I decided to pair this lovely dress from Lemon Love Lime's Fall 2013 collection [browse HERE] with some funky shoes [similar HERE]. Unfortunately my daughter has a rule of only wearing black shoes. To say we have bought the same style of shoe 3 times since she turned 1. Funny isn't it? I think it worked for the better because the black adds a great balance to the whole look. I'm really excited to pair this dress with some white or light pink tights and high top boots for winter. My daughter and I love the knit and ruffle detail on this dress. You know your child feels good and comfortable when you catch them twirling around constantly.  
El clima en Nueva York a hacido tan agradable últimamente que decidí ponerle este vestido de la colección de Otoño 2013 de Lemon Loves Lime [Mire aquí] con unos zapatos cobardes similares [AQUÍ]. Por desgracia, mi hija tiene una regla de sólo usar zapatos negros. Decir que hemos comprado el mismo estilo de zapato 3 veces desde que cumplió un año. Estoy muy emocionada para emparejar este vestido con unas medias de color rosa o color blanco para el invierno. Me encanta todo los detalles [le voy a enseñar abajo]. Usted sabe que su hijo se siente bien y cómodo cuando los vez dando vueltas constantemente.


The one thing you can do to girls that you can't do to boys is accessorize the hair. I love this headpiece that I made for my daughter at the DIY DreamDry event last week. It's the perfect touch for cute little girls:) 
La única cosa que puede hacer para las niñas que no se puede hacer para los niños es accesorios en el cabello. Me encanta esta pieza de cabeza que hice para mi hija en el evento DIY DreamDry la semana pasada. Es el toque perfecto para Niñas lindas :)

Mixing Prints


Fashion Referee I know this isn't the exact meaning of 'mixing prints' but it is more than that. Mixing colors, prints and stripes all in one. I decided to pair this very unique top from Channa Karasi with boxers (of course). The black and white stripes on the top and the navy blue stripes on the boxers are an unusual match that somehow work together wonderfully. I added the bright orange lip to match my heels and the details on the top. I know this is a bit crazy and very different from what I usually do, but I love trying new things and exposing myself to different trends. This is just to show you that there are no rules in fashion. 

Árbitro de la Moda Sé que esto no es el significado exacto de "mezcla de estampados', pero es lo suficientemente cerca. Decidí emparejar esta camiseta con calzoncillos (por supuesto). Las rayas blancas y negras en la parte superior y el azul marino en las rayas de los calzoncillos son una coincidencia inusual que de alguna manera trabajan juntos maravillosamente. He añadido el labio brillante para que coincida con mis talones y los detalles en la parte superior de la cimiseta. Sé que esto es un poco loco y muy diferente a lo que suelo hacer, pero me encanta probar cosas nuevas y exponerme a diferentes tendencias. Esto es sólo para mostrarles que no hay reglas en la moda.

Live Laugh Play


Get Ready As we prepare ourselves for back to school there are certain things we need to know when it comes to dressing our kids and ourselves for the new school year. I always say it is important to be comfy but when it comes to school it is must! When your comfortable you are more attentive and that's something extremely necessary for your kids education. When kids aren't comfortable they get aggravated and they really don't want to do anything. This is why it is crucial that your kids tell you what they like and what feels good on them. You want to allow kids to have fun, be comfortable while looking stylish. As I mentioned on this post here, It's all about colors this season. 

I wanted to go with a delicate look on top and bright pop of color on the bottom. I also added a nice light pink belt to soften up the look even more. Then when you get to the bottom you get this bright pop of color that you certainly don't expect. I love this outfit! Something else that has been really trending for back-to-school is braids but I'll get into that on my next post.


Prepárese A medida que nos preparamos para el regreso a la escuela, hay ciertas cosas que tenemos que saber cuando se trata de vestir a nuestros hijos y nosotros mismos para el nuevo año escolar. Yo siempre digo que es importante estar siempre cómodo, pero cuando se trata de la escuela es una necesidad. Cuando estas cómodo te sientes más atento y eso es algo muy necesario para la educación de los niños. Cuando los niños estan incómodos no prestan atención y realmente no quieren hacer nada. Por eso es crucial que sus hijos le digan lo que les gusta y lo que no. Como ya he dicho en este post aquí, esta temporada es solo sobre colores.

Yo quería ir con un aspecto delicado en la parte superior y un color brillante en la parte de abajo. También agregué una bonita cinta color rosa para suavizar el traje aún más. Me encanta este conjunto! Otra cosa que ha sido realmente una tendencia para la escuela son las trenzas, pero voy a hablar mas de eso en mi próximo post.
