October Dreams

As the 10th month of the year has come and almost gone, I have been as crazy as a bee in honey season. I have been slacking in my webson (web + person) status but my lifeson (life +  person)has been great and running. 

For me, since stepping into the real world as a full time job person has been a little exhausting but nice. We have a big event coming up in a few weeks and we are just crazy at the office with all the preparations. Most people would think that not having to go to class is a relief, but let me tell ain't a stroll at the beach but I am not complaining at all. It is more of a roller coaster ride where you have ups and downs and turns but nothing that one can't handle.  Which brings me to my next point. I have been doing a lot of planning. Planning, planning, planning a lot of different projects which demand a little research. This is a little survey for me to keep up with one of my projects, and I hope you find it interesting! 

Click here to get to the survey. I really appreaciate your support with it. 

And remember: 

Have a great day!

Weekend blizz

I have had a long and great week. My best plans on a Friday night after one week like this is to stay home, watch movies, eat a big bowl of ice cream, talk to some friends and even bake a little. 

I have been watching a lot of movies lately too after I get back home from work. Walking really takes the energy out of this lazy body, so it seems like a great plan to get in bed and do nothing. Of course if something better comes up I will be willing to give it a chance, but for now, doing nothing is amazing.

I spent my day in netflix (watching gossip girl), browsing through pinterest, watching youtube videos and thinking about the wonders of life. Here some of my favourite images from pinterest this days:

Have a great day!

A poetical post

 What could be better than love? I feel that food is an important part. When combined, the results are just exquisite. And for all the pervs out there, no I don't mean any kinky stuff involving both. It is just that how a passion for something makes people do it better. When you cook for the ones you love or just because for fun and your own delight, it is a thousand times more fun, more delicious and it all comes together to become one.

"This is an ode to food. The one which we can't live without. 
That one single element were we can all pour our feelings on. 
If we are in love, we eat, we cook, we bake. We are one. 
If we are in dispair, we eat, we order takeout, we munch. 
And again, we are one. 

To love is to be loved, to eat is to be eaten. 
But don't miss interpretate this, we can be eaten
with kisses, with laughs and speacially with love. 

Every part of your soul shakes, it shakes to the very core. 
Sometimes in a second and sometimes it lasts. 
Sometimes you wish it was over, sometimes you don't want it to end. 
Every molecule combines, and only love is what is left behind. 

This is an ode to love. To the one we live for. 
That one single element so good, that we can only smile about. 
If we are in love, we sing, we dance, we eat and smile. 
If we are in dispair, we scream, we write, we sigh and cry. 

To love and to food. The most of life's pleasures."

I hope you enjoyed. It came from my soul. I used to write a lot of these once in a while. And a movie inspired me to let it show right now. 

Have a great day.

Fashion Weeks 2014

All I have to say is that these times of the year are just awesome. I love that fashion around the world takes over and makes the best dressed people (some that you could only imagine living in magazines) step out in masses and be gathered for just one purpose, FASHION. 

Though this year it is different due to the loss of our beloved Fashion Guardian, Joan Rivers. A minute of silence please, to ease her soul. She was irreverent, had no problem on saying what was on top of ther mind and was not afraid of saying outloud what we were all thinking. 

Getting back on the Fashion note, I think that many just can't handle the fact that they are not experts (of course some are but not all) and there are various times that shows find this out, and make an awesome outcome out of it. Like Jimmy Kimmel for example with this Lie Witness News space in his show. 


This was amazing. Loved specially the new Chandler Bing designs LOL. Speakinf the 20 years since Friends. 

Fashion is a big inspiration for me, it takes creativity to another level and makes the person be who the person really is through personal expression. It forms character, it forms a strong sence of personality to each their own. 

I hope you are spending a nice saturday, and make the best out of it. I know I am.

Party Planning

My mom has gone plain crazy, but crazy with love and creativity, because she is planning a whole party and preparing and decorating the tables and the candy and all of the other things that come in to doing this. 

My moms' family side loves food as much as they love spending time together, and if it involves desserts, it is even better because the experience is a thousand times more gratificating than just having salty snacks. So we pretty much bond over food and all of my aunts are so talented and dedicated that we are used to catter major family gatherings. 

I just love how these kind of things make people smile. 

Candies are the best and through this I will tell you that I am still a little child at heart because I love everything sweet, gummies, candies, hard candies, soft candies, chocolate, jelly beans, lolly pops and all else that you could imagine. My mom decided to make a special table because of this. I can't say I am not happy, because I am really, really excited <3 

Here some of the inspiration behind the mind set of my mother: 

* All pictures shown above came all from pinterest <3

I hope you have a good day!

25 years of love

On Monday September the 1st, my parents celebrated 25 years of marriage. There have been ups and downs as in every couple's life, but they know how to keep it together. 

As their only child I have come to know how to handle these two (trust me, it is not an easy task!!) and to learn to be a little more patient because in the end, they are the ones who brought me into this world (thank you) and be the person I am today.

It was a really special day where I baked a cake


Got to share the dinner table with these amazing people 

Drank a little (or a lot) of Champagne in this amazing Silver decorated glass


And in the end, we spent time together which is more than anyone can ask for at moments like this. 

Family is the most important part of my life, because they are the ones who keep me sane, who support me every step of the way, and this is just a little tribute to true love.

Wardrobe Upgrade

As a student, wearing comfortable clothes has been good, and getting to work in the same (but always cute) outfits is even better, until that one time where your boss comes to you and your student colleagues (see what is going on here?) and tells you all that you need to start dressing your part. Yes,  he had no trouble with it at all, but it is also something that is required in order to look professional and be more "mature" for what we have been doing around. 

The last couple of months have been really relaxed with me not studying any more (less than a month for graduation! yey!) which has made me realize that as a professional woman, I had to be on top of the game and started dressing appropriately. I had to go out and buy myself dress pants, blouses, shoes (because why not?) and some accessories to be prepared for the every day job activity. 

I went from dressing like this: 

Jeans, boots, and t-shirts (which was cute too) 

To dressing like this: 

Dress pants, blouses, coats and heels (not pictured well here)

Which has been pretty much a matter of getting used to it and trying to play with it so that it really looks young and fresh and age appropriate. 

It has been a good change, and I am definitely trying new styles and being more daring with all of it.

have you had to go through a major wardrobe upgrade at any moment in life just like mine??  

I hope you are doing great! until next time!

Writing is a way to escape from a part of my life and a way to relax after several events going on with it. Sometimes we write a journal, a diary, moods, on paper, on a sticky-note, in our phones, in a tablet, on a word document, in twitter, in facebook and all the social media which involves the art of drawing thoughts with the written word. 

For me, writing in a more public way in the internet is a risk, of people I know reading everything that goes through my mind and even sometimes people who I have no idea on who they are read all of it and I am not sure why they keep reading. 

After some time being mute in the blog, my feeling was "man I miss this". This is my journal, my everyday escape from a part of reality which I don't hate, but neither loath to death. Writing is a passion. I have several projects which involve the written word in several aspects, where I can pour my imagination and my experience with the one love I have. 

Here a fragment of one of my most secret projects yet, which I won't reveal just yet, but wanted to have it on record here. 

"What is a dream after all? A dream is what your heart desires and your brain makes an image of it and flashes it while sleeping, or even while being awake, like an endless movie that just needs to continue.

The writing might be sloppy, but it is still a working project which needs to be taken care of in order for it to grow. 

I feel somewhat attached to the story line which I have been creating for a while for dreams we dream and lives impossible to avoid. 

I hope you liked a little of it. 

Disclaimer: All opinions are my own, the extract is part of a project I'm working on at the moment. It is all my creative work.

Vintage Fashion Sketches

Fashion sketches have always been amazing to me, the way artists (yes, fashion designers are artists) portray their vision and make it shine through an illustration is just incredible. You have to be talented and be patient in order to get that amount of domain in illustrating things. Here I leave you one sketch that I found that really caught my attention. 


Hope you spend a nice and relaxing Sunday. I will make of mine the best one :)

Spending Freeze Update

At the beginning of the month I posted about a freeze on my spending habits. Today I am writing to update you all on how has it been going for me, and let me tell you, it's been pretty great! I have not touched my savings and I see my goal closer and closer, and it is amazing on how I can live with just a limited amount of money and not go coocoo about it. 

Pretty much how it feels. Here. 

There have been times where I think "Gosh I wish I just bought that great pair of heels!" but I am glad I didn't. 

I have learned how to prioritize the wants and the needs and just asking to myself "Do I really need it? or do I just WANT it?" if the answer is just a want, then I restrain my shopaholic self and walk right away before it pushes me to do (or spend) something I will not be proud of later. 

This is a quick post, and I hope it is all going well with you! 

Have an awesome day!

Almost over and a Thank You

I know it has been way too long since my last post, but I have a pretty exciting announcement! I am officially done with my university life work, the last things that are coming up in line next are FINAL exams, which I am not that worried about but I can easily study and just focus on them. 

This past weeks have been an emotional roller coaster but in a good way, both for my career life and my personal life in which the things and the people surrounding me have helped me to find myself in the way and maybe not letting some bad things get to me. 

Today I can say that being a senior at University has been a lot of fun and challenging, even more challenging than at the beginning of the path to obtain a degree, but it is all worth the struggle and the sweat and the tears (specially the last bit of all). You have no idea how many times the thought of quitting has gone through my mind, but there always was something insignificant but great that would lift me up like a little ray of sunlight coming through my window in the darkest of days and a simple smile from the ones who love me and whom I love back. 

Having supporting friends and family has always made my day a little easier whenever I felt like not wanting to do anything else but crawl back into my bed and never leave it again. I am so thankful for each and everyone who has crossed my path, even if it was just for a couple seconds at the street, or for the last 22-almost-23-years of my life. So thank you if you are just here for a flash and thank you for making a difference in my day to day. 

To recap a little of my past weeks, lets just say that it has been amazing. New people, new projects, new aspirations and a whole lot more to life than just living it. 

It may seem that this post has become a little cheese ball of feelings, but I hope you are still sticking around reading it. If so, thank you again ! (have you noticed I am a little grateful for everything?). 

Lessons have been learned in just a short period of time. Friends have become closer to a point where family is their next status. Teachers becoming mentors. Relationships have come and gone but always will remain as a part of my story (way too much drama back then). Family. Bosses that are more like friends. Co-workers who understand you and teach you on the way being friends and family at the same time. Opportunities. Feeling loved and respected and feeling that you have left a mark on somebody's heart.

And to all the people portrayed and who made it into this cheese ball of cheesiness of pictures. Sorry I'm not sorry for putting you out there in the internet for you are the most important thing that has happened to me. These are just some of the pictures of the journey, and if you don't find yourself here, it's not because I don't love you (cause I do and more than you can imagine) but because there are waaaay to many cute pictures and my blog may crash from the cuteness.

On a rather gloomy Sunday morning I decided it was time to run. It was really refreshing and I had fun at it. It was the first time I ran in the morning and I feel brand new. 

Here a peak of my neighborhood's park: 

I will start doing this more often than not, whenever I have the time during the week. I feel motivated and full of energy after that. 

Hope you spend a great Sunday!

New Face

You may have noticed the new image of the blog. I wanted something simple, sleak and with not so much going on. I opted for just a gray background image with a little of texture and just some fun pops of color with the links and titles.

I felt it was time for a change as new transitions and exciting things are going on with my life and learning to love the simplicity and little things which come with new beginnings.

Cheers to new beginnings and for the new image of SKMS.

A freeze on spending

I have had this idea for a while, to save money and spend it in something that is going to be the best investment for me over time. But every time I wanted to save up, things came up, social gatherings, going out for friends birthdays, eating out to catch up with friends, that one coat that was screaming my name from a far, the pair of shoes that combined perfectly with the coat, the bag that was awesome with the shoes that combined with that coat and so on and so forth, which meant I never had the availability of cash in order to save it up and create a fund for my "big" investment. 

Yeah, no shopping for me 

This time, it is all different, I have a goal and want to achieve it by the time I graduate in October (lets just call it my graduation present to me from me) and I am on a roll. This is why I am on a spending freeze 'cause there is nothing else that I need which is not of life and death. There are still social gatherings and compromises I need to attend, but there is still some discretionary money that I have budgeted in order to spend on those things. 

I have no idea on how all of this is going to go but I hope it will be great. It is worth it working towards something you really really want, and once you achieve it, the feeling is just incredible. 

Do you have a first big investment you are saving up for? let me know in the comment section below!

Sunday dreaming

Mondays are somewhat dreadful, specially if there are projects and tests and other million things to do for the week. I am almost a month from ending my senior year at University and things could not be more hectic than right at this moment. Stress is flowing through my veins and there is a lot lot lot to do so there is little space for rest. 


This brings me to my next point in which I really think that maybe, just maybe, it should be illegal for people to have to work or do assignments of any kind, so there should only be one day to just stay in bed and have a date with a Netflix marathon of your favorite show. Yes please! 

Well, enough for the weekend (Sunday) rant. I just need sleep! 

have a good week!
