An Advice From a 21 year-old Girl

I'm a month away from turning 22 and to be honest I'm not excited at all. Time just passes by and I feel like it's slipping through my fingers. Call me lame, but I've never been a fan of my birthday. After spending my Saturday in and complaining a little that I didn't hang out with my friends as I used to, I realized that tonight was great. With time you realize those nights you stay in with your family just watching a movie together, having dinner or even just talking all night long are priceless. Those are the nights you'll miss when in the future

You might read this, laugh and say: "poor 21 y-old girl, you know nothing". But oh well, isn't this the reason why we have endless platforms to express our feelings to the whole wide world without being judged? You might disagree with this or you might think "I feel ya", but no matter what your reaction will be I hope this helps you to rethink certain things. To you all I can say is:     

- Travel, travel a lot, explore the world and learn about other cultures, understand the differences and always take all the good stuff from each place you visit. Embrace life and every single second of it, it's amazing that you've made it so far and you have a bright future ahead.  

- Laugh as much as you can, forget those nights you cried on your own quietly so your parents wouldn't notice. With time you'll realize that was nothing, there's so much more than just that. Let yourself enjoy more and suffer less. Stop wasting your tears on matters that aren't just worth it and keep them for real tragedies and even if you cry (nothing wrong with that) get up. You're allowed to cry, but you're not allowed to give up. 

- Be kind to every single person, be humble and learn about life, about today, about the world. There are so many things going on around the world and being aware of these events gives you an idea of what the world needs. Trust me, this world needs more honest, humble, kind people (if that term even exists).

- Fall in love, and I mean it, fall in love every single day with your family and learn to love your friends because they are the ones that will support you when you most need it. But more importantly, love yourself, stop depending on the others, they will not make you happy, you create your own happiness. And stop watching those stupid romance movies, trust me they just create false hopes. And it's not that I'm a grumpy single lady, but when you find the one you'll know it and even if it's not that fairy tale you always expected you'll love every second by his/her side.  

- Get to know as many people as you can and take the time to listen to them, learn what they like, where they come from and even if you don't become best friends they'll be your future contacts, create your own network because you will stop depending on your parents'.  
  
But overall, learn as much as you can, work hard to do so. And I'm not only talking about school, you will not learn much there, get out of your bed, read, work, get an internship and even if they don't pay you ($$) the experience is priceless. Question everything, it's your time to pop that bubble you live in and get to know about anything really, find that passion of yours. Because for at least 35 years you will work and it rather make you the happiest person on Earth because you'll spend about 40 hours a week, which is a lot if you think about it. Not to mention the extra hours that they don't mention on the interview.

If you actually read until the end of this post, congrats! Sometimes it's hard to read such a long post and I get it, hopefully these tips will help you or at least will give you another point of view. Smile and have a great week!!

Styling Firmoo

As some of you may know I've worked with Firmoo before. The first question that everyone has before buying a product specially from an online store is if it's really worth it? Since this was my second product I would be getting from this online store I was quite happy and interested to know if the service and the product were going to be as great as the first time.

To be honest I absolutely adore not only their sunglasses, but the service they offer. For those of you who don't know, Firmoo is one of the most popular online eyeglasses online. I always have trouble finding the right eyeglasses since I need them small to actually fit with my face (I always say I look like a fly with sunglasses). Good news are that Firmoo has the measures of the eyeglasses so you can be certain that they will fit.
 
I decided to take my sunglasses to Mexico City to show you guys not only the sunglasses but the pyramids, and yes it was a great day! Since I've traveled a lot, one of the questions I get the most is if I've visited Teotihuacan's pyramids, as if being Mexican means you've seen it all in Mexico. Anyhow, back to Firmoo's sunglasses, as for the customer service I was treated quite well from the very beginning by the customer service agents. Most of us just get concerned about the product, but to be honest for me the customer service is everything. When I had a question they answered promptly and even they were concerned if I got my sunglasses on time. 
 
My first impression of the sunglasses is that they are made out of plastic, lightweight and well-made. I specially love that they are lightweight since I considered it's quite important if you're going to wear it for a long time under the sun. The first sunglasses I ordered where black and classic, but this time I wanted something different and since I love pink I went for them and ordered something more futuristic and modern. The only thing I don't seem to like about them is that I can't seem to clean them with anything other than the cleaning cloth that comes with them, other than that I'm quite happy with my sunglasses.

Cocomelody

Hello bunnies! I'm teaming up again with a wonderful online store that offers gorgeous, affordable dresses. I don't know if any of you have met the online store Cocomelody, to be honest it's one of my favorite online stores for wedding dresses because they have a personalized customization for the chance to have unique designer wedding dresses. Best part of it is they do not only have wedding dresses, but they also have long evening dresses, and even prom dresses. I share here some of my favorite designs I found on their site!
To be honest we all have special occasions, such as weddings, dinners and other special events coming all year long, so long evening dresses are always welcome. Best part of Cocomelody is how affordable and gorgeous they are and best quality products are insured!

What do you think about them? To be honest I love how beautiful and unique they're designed. For over 15 years the company has been an expert producing wedding dresses, nowadays they have expanded their products and they offer more than wedding dresses

My graduation is this December and I've spent a lot of time looking up for the right prom dress, I've got some inspiration from this site! Also for free shipping on special occasion dresses they're offering free shipping on $150+! Oh and they have a campaign going on! So be sure to check it out before the 29th!! Be sure to check it out, they sure have a perfect match just for you!

11 Job Interview Tips

Hello bunnies! It's been a while since I last posted on my blog (5 days really, but it feels like forever!) To be honest, the other day I was wondering how long will I continue doing this, and by this I mean blogging, particularly about fashion. But then I realized there is so much more and your blog has to grow with you, since I started applying for internships these last months I decided to write some interview tips. 

To be honest interviews are so much fun, I've always thought that an interview is not a test, but just a way for the company to get to know your profile and skills, but also for them to convince you that this job is the one you want. So there is no need to be nervous at all! Also, my eldest sister works in human resources and she's the one that gets to make all those interviews, so her experience has always been great to me

First of all, think of a job interview as a first date where first impressions do count, but you're there just to get to know the other person as well as the other person is there to get to know you. Here are 11 job interview tips! 

1. Get to know the company's values, mission and history: To be honest I found out that it is quite important to know the values and profile of the workers of the company you're willing to work with because you have to stay true to yourself, and I'm pretty sure we all feel more satisfied if we work on a company that runs according to our own values and way of living. 

2. Get to know your weaknesses: So far I've been into five internships and on three of them the question "What's your weakness?" has popped up, for this my sister's advice has always been to name those weaknesses that suits the company, for example, for a company that you know is about working hard to achieve a goal then a great weakness to name would be that you are ambitious or that you demand a lot to yourself.

3. Sleep tight: Honestly I do not recommend to have a long night before the day of the interview, you need to be awake and fully aware when you get to it, specially if you are a nervous person. You can go out for dinner or bowling or whatever you want that does not involve a long night out or drinking til late. Otherwise, you'll feel pretty tired the day of the interview and trust me, you won't be able to think straight when you get to those analytical questions that sometimes you'll get. 

4. Do whatever makes you happy: If you feel like having some ice cream a day before then go for it! I've found out that making my days wonderful the week of the interview helps me through the process, that way you get distracted and feel more comfortable with yourself, remember you have to be on a great mood! First impressions DO count here! 

5. Think aloud!: Okay, this tip is for analytical questions. Trust me, they do not want to know if you know the right answer, they just want to know how you reason, but if you stay quiet and just say the answer then it will not really let them realize how you truly reason, so next time the question "how many churches are in your city?", share your calculations and assumptions rather than just blurt out the answer.

6. Wear something comfortable: Try to wear something that goes according to your personality, but try navy or black, personally I do not recommend strong colors for a serious company. Also, if you're a big fan of skirts I would try to avoid short skirts, please do wear something discreet.

7. Be the best version of you: Some people pretend to be someone else just because they want to make a good impression; however, you have to trust yourself, you are unique and all they want to know is if your profile goes along with the company. Is not that you are not good for the job, but sometimes the profile does not fit the job and it's better to find that job that goes along with who you are! If they see how confident you are with yourself, trust me, that will help! 

8. Make good impressions: By this I mean to everyone you encounter. I once heard a story of a man that was running late to a job interview and on his way to the office he pushed a man on the subway, when he got to the job interview it turned out that the interviewer was that man he passed by. So try to be nice to everyone you pass by on your way to the interview! Also, when you get to the office I usually smile to everyone and a "Good morning" is always welcome.

9. Body language: Remember body language is everything! Try to move a little your hands while you speak, if you have a chair with wheels avoid swinging too much, smile and make eye contact. While listening to the interviewer show interest, a solid posture and nod. Also, avoid playing with a pen, touching your face or hair or even chewing gum.

10. Show interest: The other day I was making a job interview simulation to help out my sister with her work and one of her comments was that I wasn't really showing interest on the job. Wooah, quite simple but I've never thought of it! You need to let the company know that you're interested in the job and the company. On my last job interview one of the interviewers was impressed of all I knew about the company when I said why I wanted to work there, because he realized that I was truly interested about working there not because I wanted money, but because I truly like the company itself and I want that kind of profile. 

11. Arrive on time: Last but not least, you must arrive on time. I'm not really known for punctuality, but I'm always on time when I have a job interview or something as important as getting right on time to your job. You're not in school anymore, there's not a 5 min tolerance and you need to take this seriously. (Damn, is just like I'm talking to myself...)

So this is it, bunnies! I know the post is a little bit longer than what it usually is, but it was necessary. I truly enjoyed sharing all these tips with you and hope you found them useful. If you have any questions regarding this issue, please do not hesitate to let me know!

Into the Woods


Photographer: Nolberto Gómez
Vest: Zara 
Blouse: Bershka
Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes: Nine West
Watch: Guess Watches

Morning bunnies!! This is one of my favorite outfits from Winter because it's really comfortable and to be quite honest this is the first vest I have ever had, I found it on the girls section in Zara, but since it fitted me and I loved how it looked I decided to keep it! I know I'm a little to late since we're in Spring now, which is driving me crazy!! It's so hot and it's not Summer yet! I totally prefer cold weather, but I will not complain unless I go swimming with this hot weather!!I just wanted to show you guys this photo shoot since I'm looking forward to have another one with this man that you see here, I truly appreciate his work!

Hola chicos!! Este es uno de mis outfits favoritos del invierno porque es muy cómofo y para ser honesta es el primer chaleco que he tenido, lo encontré en la sección de niñas de Zara, curioso, no? Sé que es algo tarde ya que estamos en primavera pero el calor realmente me está molestando, aún no es verano y ya hace demasiado calor!! No sé ustedes pero yo prefiero el frío! Solo quería enseñarles esta sesión de fotos ya que muy pronto me estará haciendo otra y realmente me gusta su trabajo!

Probably I haven't show you guys who is the photographer that has took all those amazing pictures of me lately, but here it is finally, one of the best photographers I know from my city, can't wait for our next photo-shoot! Hope you all have a fabulous week!

Probablemente nunca les he mostrado al fotógrafo que toma muchas de mis fotos maravillosas, pero aquí está finalmente el hombre detrás de la cámara, es uno de los mejores que conozco de mi ciudad, no puedo esperar para nuestra siguiente sesión! Espero todos tengan una muy buena semana!
