Celebrating 75 years with COACH // Celebrando 75 años con COACH




When I was in middle school I remember seeing many girls walking around with Coach handbags. At that time I don't even recall having a handbag but I would drool over these bags because they were so eye catching & cute! I never exactly asked for one because I was 12, what exactly was I going to put in there? My gum that was not allowed in school? Or my color pencils? I did although do some research on the cost, admired them from the displays at the mall for more than a year, & talked about the beauty of them enough that I got lucky. When I was in intermediate,about two years later when I actually had stuff to put in there, my mom bought me one. It was not only my first high end handbag but it meant a lot more. You see I love fashion, but I love my parents a million times more. I knew that this handbag was not cheap & the fact that I was carrying a high end handbag & my mom was not, said a lot more. It spoke on the sacrifice my parents had made, it spoke on the great love they had for me, & it taught me to be even more appreciative for the things I did not need. I am more than blessed to have the parents that I do & although it was a materialistic thing, it gave me inspiration & faith that one day I would be able to accomplish a lot in the world of fashion. 

Although I am just a beginner in the social side to fashion, I am so happy to be partnering with Coach for their 75th anniversary! Thank you for the endless memories, & for this cute handbag! I am obsessed with the quality & the convenient compartments. Not to mention the excitement that my mom & I shared when we saw the box come in the mail. Happy 75th anniversary Coach!

Cuando tenía 12 años habían niñas en la escuela que cargaban con bolsas de la marca Coach. Siempre me llamaban la atención pero no pedía una por que a esa edad no tenía la necesidad de traer bolsa. ¿Que le iba a hechar, dulces, lápices? Aunque no tenía la necesidad de traer bolsa me gustaban tanto que averigüe el precio, me les que daba viendo como 5 cinco minutos en los aparadores de las tiendas, y hable tanto de los lindos diseños que a los dos años mis padres me compraron una. Fue un regalo tan lindo que nunca se me va ha olvidar. Se que fue un regalo material pero hablo más aya de eso. Fue un sacrificio porque ni mi mamá cargaba con bolsa de marca. Y aunque la bolsa era muy linda, lo más lindo era el amor que mis padres tenían hacia mi. Porque aunque yo ame todo lo que tenga que ver con el arte de la moda, yo amo a mis padres un millón de veces más. 

Así que me enorgullece poder celebrar el aniversario número 75 de la marca Coach. Una marca que a traído más que moda, a traído tantos lindos recuerdos. ¡Gracias por ellos y por la bolsa tan linda que me mandaron! La calidad es excelente y el color es hermoso. Nunca en mi vida me hubiera imaginado que ustedes me iban ha estar mandando bolsas gratis. Pero siendo sincera, lo mejor fue la alegría que yo y mamá pudimos compartir cuando llegó el paquete a nuestra casa. Fue otro momento inolvidable. ¡Feliz aniversario Coach!

New Year love


Happy new year! Although we are well into the new year I wanted to take the time to wish you all the best for the year of 2017. I have been away for a few weeks due to many reasons. The first was a terrible cough, which lead to bronchitis, which lead to I don't know what, which lead to me being sick for more than ten days! It was horrible and to top things off our summer/winter weather here in Houston did not help at all. After getting over the sickness I decided I needed to start this new year with more than just goals. I wanted to start the year with actions. 

It took a lot of cleaning, brainstorming, & trial & error, to get myself together & to bring some structure to my work life. You see last year, I was just going with the flow of things & unfortunately it caused me to fall face first a few times. Not just with work, but with my personal life as well. You see it is very easy to go with the flow of what everyone around you is or what they expect you to be. In the midst of doing so I lost myself, my character, & I found myself not enjoying the things that I loved to do. I became lazy & very unorganized to the point where it made me feel sad & ugly on the inside. But that has all changed! 

I started off by organizing a few things in my room that were a disaster for months, created a schedule (which I am still trying to figure out.), made a work station, actually started using the 50 cute planners I tend to buy every year, & most importantly, I learned that I was not one of those ugly things I was said to be or told myself I was. It has been a challenge but it has been the most rewarding, especially because I am so happy & have been filled with so much love from the people around me, that I now feel like I have enough to share with the entire world!

 I am excited to finally sit here & smile as I write this. Although this is a blogpost that has nothing to do with fashion or beauty I felt the need to share. I have many fun blog posts planned for the next few weeks & if you all ever feel the need to chat feel free to message me as I am not only on social media to help with fashion advice. Much love to all of your beautiful faces & welcome to all of my new lovelies! I can't wait to engage with many fun conversations! 

P.s. If you have not read the book Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst, I highly encourage you to read. It is life changing. I'm sure you girls will love it!
