It seems a little surreal that people from my graduating class of high school are already getting married. Trust me, we are young, and that is a good thing. It makes me want to get married too, but first I need to find the right boy (that might be the topic of another post, lets not get into my love life just yet) and that will come if he is the one.

Right now I want to say that I am so happy for my friends. They are going to take this huge step in a year from now and they could be more right.

The have had a long history together, spent time with each other and have grown to be the cutest couple. We  all were waiting for their engagement. It was the most anticipated (and predicted) thing ever. And finally we received the news! We are all talking about it now. And of course, wishing them the best and all the love and happiness of the whole wide world. 

We are getting old. I can't seem to process it, but in a good way. 

Cheers to happy couples all around the world, about to tie the knot, and expressing their honest love.

Painting... nails. I haven't done that in a week! i can't believe it from me.

I've had a hectic week. Like for real, crazy hectic week. University, work and life have been beasts on me. But I have a little time to breath and to pain my nails. Which i am so happy about! I don't like my nails to be naked. It makes me a lot more self conscious. I have the habit of not letting my nails rest, but I figured, as I have zero time to spare lately, that I prefer to have naked nails instead of chipped nails

But I finally painted them and I feel much better that way. It boosts my self esteem. I feel prettier, and (for a weird reason) healthier and happier. 

I hope you are having an awesome Sunday.

What a week!

I've had a really hard week, it was one of those where everything you do goes wrong and just when you thought nothing could go worse than that, it does. I was desperate! I had build up too much stress that I felt my head was going to explode and all of my body was feeling horribly heavy. I ate due to anxiety (probably way too much that I gained a pound...) 

In conclusion, it was horrible! and yes, Monday started and seemed to be a good week, but by Wednesday it was just unbearable. I tried my best not to break down, but that night I couldn't handle it any more. 

Exercise! yes, that was the solution. The answer I've been looking for all along those horrid days. I have been on a bad relationship with working out lately. I haven't moved a muscle (literally) in almost a month and a half and it could be longer than that (at least it feels that way). 

Doing cycling has always made me feel better and it has an extraordinary effect on my nerves. In that way, I started riding my stationary one. In just 30 mins, it does the charm.I felt relieved and happy. It was all I needed. And I feel more inspired than ever!! I want to keep it up and switch up my routine.  

The reason why I stopped exercising was that I had no time, and I love to so, but finding the space is not so easy, 30 mins in the stationary is good. But having under 30 mins workouts would be so much better. BEACHBODY has developed one that is 25 mins long which give you the same results as an hour long workout with just focusing more on the intensity, putting in practice the saying "quality over quantity". I am seriously eyeing it, it seems like so much fun and it might help me relax! which I need more now that I study and work. It is called the FOCUS T25. The launch date is yet to be announced , but you can subscribe to their e-mail list and be one of the first people to know it and get it. I have already joined it so that I can be alert to purchase it.  It is going to be great for busy people. 
Dumbbell Set (3 lbs., 5 lbs., 8 lbs.)
Another thing that is going to go great with it is their foam roller, to loosen up muscles after a extraneous exercise so that you are not as soar as you would be later. I like stretching also to loosen up those muscles! I don't want to walk later like a granny (which I feel I am most of the time). How could I forget? to tone those flappy arms (my case totally!) I might purchase their Dumbbell weight set which includes the 3 lbs., 5 lbs., 8 lbs. weights. pretty cool. 

Yoga Monster MatI've been on the search for good quality yoga mat for a while, I haven't cross one that has enough padding to help with knee or ankle pain when doing yoga (i did it once and couldn't handle it) or even elbows and back pains due to the hard wood floor here at home. BEACHBODY got it! it is called the yoga monster mat. yes, monster. It is definitely one of the products that I might be getting in the near future :) 

If you didn't notice, I am really motivated and excited about working out. I need to keep it that way, that is why i need to switch it up a little sometimes! 

Are you trying to workout more? if you already do, how do you stay motivated?

I am not receiving any economic compensation or any other type or form of it. All opinions are my own. I have permission to use their photos in this post in order to show the previously mentioned goods.

Let's talk about it.

Maybe I am a little naive. Maybe I just like it too much. 

Fashion is in the mouth of everyone. Without it we wouldn't be able to express ourselves. Even when someone says "I'm not into fashion" they are all wrong. You just don't need to follow the hottest trends to be a fashion addict. It is how you express your personality through it. Simple, sleek, classy, grunge, boho, hobo, country, even a mix, you are creating your own fashion statement. If sneakers is what you use more, go for it. If you are high for heels, go for it. 

 'This stuff'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select... I don't know... that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent... wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff." Miranda Priestly. "The Devil wears Prada" 

Best quote ever. 

We are all not exempt from fashion choices, we just don't know how it really affects our way of seeing ourselves. It's no joke when they say "dress for success" either in your job or in your life. We just have to look and feel great. 

It's our confidence that make the clothes look good on us, not the other way around. 

Be confident, express yourself and it will take you wherever you need to be. 

Fashion, what else am I supposed to say? Just have fun.

Bye Bye May.

I've had the craziest month. Some ups and downs came my way, and have been really learning experiences. Loved them and also hated them. It's things like these that make me open my eyes and understand how much time I spend trying to multitask, but it is actually not working at all. I can do some things at the same time, but have figure out that if I just do one thing, finish it and then continue with the next, is going to make my life easier and stay on top of my game. 

Yesterday I heard a phrase that is stuck on my head, "It doesn't matter the speed of the things you do, it matters how you do them and how well you perform them". Well yes, I have been trying lately to keep up with the craziness. I just can't any more. I am not following it, it's not my pace.

For June, my goal is to go at my speed, don't try to multitask cause that is making me fall behind. I sometimes think that the whole world if pushing me to walk faster than I am used to, but this time, I just want to take it my way.

May has been, most definitely, a learning month, one that has made me open my eyes and be struck with reality. Being a grown up is certainly more difficult. You just have to learn how to handle things and go with your own speed.  

I hope your month is starting off right! 

have a great day!
