The weekend mani

Hi everybody!!

This week has passed soo fast, it has been crazy!
I started my diet and so far it has been good, although I went to Starbucks and well, you can't drink water there!! So.. I ordered the vanilla latte with no sugar on the vanilla and splenda, it's delicious and a great option for your waist line :)

Now that we are actually in the weekend, it is always a good time to get our nails done, isn't? With all the craziness of the week there's just not enought time to do this right except for changing the nail color.

Since It's been raining, I decided to go for the dark colors, this one is from OPI.

Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window.
It's from the America tour collection.
You might be thinking this is last season, but I don't have any sisters to share nail polish and I have so many that they last a looong time !

By the way, I am thinking on trying new nail art, simple since I'm not so good at drawing and all that, any suggestions?

Happy tangerine

Hello ! How is this week going so far?
I have decided to start dieting tomorrow...maybe I'm still on time to achieve that weight loss goal we all set at the beginning of the year ( every year ! ).
Talking about colors and fashion, I liked a trend that I spotted in last Sunday's Emmy Awards and it is the fact that many actresses wore tangerine ! don't you just love this color? I love it on my nails like I wore it for my last post about bangles here but I think it also looks beautiful in clothes.
Below is some inspiration from the stars: 
Padma Lakshimi from Top Chef. Monique L'huillier.
How does she stay thin working on that show?!

Lindy Pulsipher from True blood.
Nancy O'Dell from Entertainment Tonight. I love this ombre style dress.
Cat Deeley - from So you Think You Can Dance. Tadashi Shoji gown.
What do you think of this color? Do you think it suits everyone? I think it's really pretty and it can give a pop of color to the outfits.
Here are my pics for tangerine accessories as well as clothes !! I'm in love with this color, next shopping mission will be buying some TANGERINE ! ;)
It's good to open our minds to new dress colors and step out a little from the neutrals. Here is my inspiration for tangerine dresses :

Love Bangles

Hello ! How was your weekend? Hope it was great !

I decided to go do some shopping over the weekend and found some insane bangles, I fell in love the minute I saw them.  Colors are black and gold and  the set has 4 bangles, the thing I loved the most is that it includes one with spikes which are so trending right now.

When I wear bangles, I try to keep it a little low key with the necklace since I want all the attention to be in my embellished wrist :)  Hope you like them: P.S: they's from Pull & Bear.

Wear them altogether to make a statement.

Love the black and gold combination.

Gorgeous and Elegant.
You can combine 2 of them or 3 or wear just 1 of them, it will still look great !

Say Hello to Yellow !

Hello ! How was your first day of the week? Hope it was nice !

Yesterday at the Emmy's, we spotted some trends and among them we will talk about the yellow one. Many actresses decided to wear this tone and I think it's amazing.  Yellow gives life and makes you stand out so much.  I think it is a color that a lot of people is afraid of but if you mix it right, it can't go wrong.  Besides, yellow is an elegant color, so you will definetly look glamorous and up to date.

Here is the yellow inspiration from the Emmys:

Claire Danes from Homeland. Wearing a bright yellow gown by Lanvin.
He made a pregnant women look confortable and so chic. She really took a risk with this color, most pregnant actresses wear neutral/dark colors for these types of events.

Leslie Mann - Naeem Khan gown. This dress looks like so much fun, you can tell she is having a good time wearing it.  Love the pockets, very helpfull.

Jualianne Moore - Dior haute couture. I love the color but I don't love the top. I think her breasts look weird, like way too pressed down, maybe with a different cleveage it would have looked more fresh.

Julie Bowen - Monique L'Huillier. I love this dress, she looks stunning and so radiant, but hey, who wouldn't be radiant after winning an Emmy?!?!
Hannah Simone - from new girl. Wearing Emilio Pucci. 
This dress is really cute, very flowy and relaxed. 
Kaley Couco wearing an Angel suarez dress. The dress is nice, a little too long for her though.
Hair and make up...could have been a lot better, she looks kinda tacky...sorry.

Giving this trend, I have pulled 3 outfits very different but following the yellow dress style:

This outfit mixes all bright colors so we get colorblocking.  The blazer gives it a more casual look and the clutch, OMG the bright PINK clutch is the one that will make heads turn to you ! finish the look with some nude pumps.
This one is for the night out, you know, when you go out with your friends have a good time and you just wanna look hot yet classy.  I love this dress because it doesn't reveal too much, it just hugs you in the right places.   Tone it down with the gray tones on your shoes and give it a little twist with your red clutch.
I really love this outfit. The dress is so cute, it is perfect for an afternoon out or a casual dinner.  Love the camel tones ( obsessed with it ) and how crazy are those leopard flats? To die for ! spice it up with the bright blue earring and you're good to go !


Emmy's Fashion Spotting

Did you watch the Emmy's yesterday? Did your favourite series win? Mine did ! Modern Family, of course ! I'm so happy that Eric Stonestreet ( Cameron ) and Julie Bowen ( Claire ) won and also the series won for Outstanding Comedy Series. If you haven't seen this show, you have to, it's a must, I'm crazy about it, everytime I wanna laugh my you know what off I watch this, it's hilarious !!

So, talking fashion, I loved Sofía Vergara´s dress, I love her  ( The way she plays Gloria is the best - From Modern Family ), she is latin and so am I, so we have to support our latin talent. 

Below is a list of the dresses I totally loved, I bet you have a list like this too ! So let´s talk fashion!

Sofía Vergara wearing Zunair Murad and Neil Lane jewels. Just a simple gown and jewels..yeah right. Gorgeous!
Jane Levy - from Suburgatory ! When I saw this I didn´t even imagine it was her ! so different on TV, right? Love the color, looks great with the hair ! Gotta love electric blue, makes you stand out.
Ms. Kelly Osbourne - wearing a taffeta gown by Zac Posen. She is looking the best ever !
Claire Danes from Homeland, who BTW won an Emmy ! Gorgeous design for a pregnant woman with plenty of room for some extra growth or eating, I should get one like that..hmm.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus.  This woman has an insane body! I wanna be like her when a grow up even more ! Wearing Vera Wang.
Brooke Burke - I remember her when she was on Wild On on E!. Beautiful dress, I also wanna be like her when I grow up, although a body like that right now wouldn´t hurt me either!
The funny Julie Bowen who took home an Emmy for being Claire on Modern Family. Wearing Monique L´Huillier. GORGEOUS ! 
So now is the ' I don't what to think abou this ' list... tell me what you think about my picks:
Hayden Panettiere wearing Marchesa... I think she is too short for this dress. Nicole Kidman could have pulled this off !
Emily VanCamp in a J. Mendel gown - Beautiful dress but not so beautiful color and make up, she is pretty and I think she could have done better, maybe a different dress color?
Ginnifer Goodwin - Another actress from one of my other favourite shows: Once Upon a Time.
The dress looked red on TV and I think it looks a little heavy but loved the color !
Kat Dennings - Our lovely sarcastic Max from Two Broke Girls.
That thing in the belly looks a little unecessary to me..What do you think?
Kristen Wiig - What happened to her?, Did she get invited on the same day and didn´t have the time to look for a dress or go to hair and make up?
Kaley Couco in Angel Sanchez gown. Terrible hair and make up, I like the dress though.
Well this sums up my Sunday night, lots of new fashion to watch and I already spotted some trends that I'll be posting these days. 
Hey, don't forget to watch Modern Family ( I'm gonna start charging them for this free publicity hehe ) you are going to LOVE and LAUGH like you never have in your life.
Have a great week!!!

*Fashion* : Rock the wedges

There are times in our shopping lives when we look at one item and we fall in love, you know that feeling, right? Well, It just happened to me ( like many other times in the past, * shocking * ).

This time I fell in love with the below Nine West wedges that are to die for!  El Salvador is a very very warm country, it's like summer all year long, even though it rains, you will still feel hot ! that's how it is, a lot of people from other countries tell me that they envy my weather because it's always sunny and hot.  I think it has its advantages, but on the fashion side, it makes me mad that I can't wear as many scarves and cute jackets because of that ! so everytime it gets a little cold, I never miss the opportunity to wear something like that.

Well, enought about the weather, below are the wedges I'm talking about. I love to pair them with cropped jeans ( it makes me look so tall ! yay ! ) but above all, they are extremely confortable, it's amazing, I'm in love. In the future, I will be styling them with dresses, so I'll be posting back on that too :)

I put together the outfit below, this is basically how I go to work, love a casual, girly, fresh look.

Cool place to visit

Hey there !  Just wanted to show you some of the pics I took over my last weekend.
I went to this lake that is about 1 hour away from San Salvador ( The capital of El Salvador ) and the funny thing about it is that it has changed its color !
No one knows why actually, well...scientists suppose that it is because of some seaweed that is blue and green and that has changed the color from very dark blue to turquoise ! I think they don't know exactly at this moment and maybe they'll come up with something else later.
In the meantime, I took the opportunity to go take a peek on this changing lake and took a couple of pictures that I'm sharing below, we had a really nice time and trust me, there was A LOT of people doing the same, I mean, who wouldn't be curious about this?
Hope you enjoy it!
This is how it used to look like..
And in the matter of a couple of days, it changed to this! 
Coatepeque Lake
Nice right?
Love this picture

Sunday night music

Hey there!
It's Sunday.. I know, tomorrow a new week and attitude.
On Sunday we feel a little nostalgic since the weekend is coming to an end but still, you have a couple of hours, so you better enjoy them and make the most out of them.

Here is some music I have found myself listening this weekend, do you relate to these?  A little to calm for me...

Here it goes, my weekend playlist:

Beautiful Girl from INXS
Only wanna be with you - Hootie & The Blowfish
Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp
Everybody Hurts - by REM
Now that I see this, it's been a melancholic weekend, but a new week starts tomorrow and we gotta move on!

Trip to El Salvador

The weekend is here! What are you going to do ?

I have a recommendation for you : if you are from outside El Salvador you gotta come, if you are in El Salvador, you gotta go ! Come on, let's do some local tourism.

Last weekend I went to Chalatenango which is a department in El Salvador ( El Salvador is divided in 14 departments ), so, this one is up in the North and it's supossed to be colder than the rest...but since the weather is crazy these days, it is no longer like that, but still you get to stay away from the city and the hectic world and go to a calmer and peaceful place.

Our pick last week was the hotel Entre Pinos, it is the best hotel you can find there, it's really confortable and pretty.  Food is great, you can find anything! from delicious typical breakfast Salvadorean style, to pasta, hamburgers, seafood, you name it, they have it.

You can bring your beverages to the hotel, some snacks and you go out to picnic in all the places there are inside.  It's a huge place ! 2 pools, horseback riding, bike riding, a lake with swans, animals everywhere, lots of cabanas.  You will have fun in this place !

Let's start the tour:

This is a hammock from one of the towns nearby called La Palma.
You can find these peacocks allover the place, friendly cute animals !
One of the beautiful views inside the hotel.
Still in contact with the nature, that's what this is all about.
This is one of the pools I was telling you about. Right behind it is that mountain, how refresing right?
And next to the pool is the restaurant.
We took a tour to some waterfalls that are nearby and this is the trail that we had to follow to get
to the river, cross it and get to the waterfalls. Unfortunately, the weather is not so good this
time of the year and river was to big and it would have been a little dangerous to cross, but hey! we got to walk through the nature and clean our lungs.
Hope you like this about El Salvador, it sure was a relaxing and fun experience!

Finally the weekend!!

Congrats again, you have not only survived monday but also the whole week!!

This has been a crazy week, hasn't it? Fashion Week started yesterday with Fashion Night Out and tons of events throughout New York. Wish there were things like that in Central America..

There have been some really nice looks yesterday, I specially love the ones below :

Katie Holmes looked gorgeous, love the blouse.
Victoria Beckham looked so good. Love the braid and the dress is to die for !

Love all the outfits !

That dress is beatiful, fits perfectly on her. By the way, the highlight are perfect.
The Jenners: Did that sequin pants added a little more pounds to Kylie?
Not such a fan..
