Best of 2013 Looks.

bestof

It’s finally here-2014! The new year awaits us right before our eyes and I could not be any more excited and happier for this fresh new start for all of us. It was by far one of the best years I’ve experienced both personally and professionally. I challenged myself and went after things I thought I couldn’t accomplish. It was a year full of growth, learning, highs and lows, laughter, joy, disappointments… I mean, it was a little bit of everything. With all of the amazing highs I was blessed with, I also had to deal with a few obstacles/challenges/lows. I feel very proud for going through everything and pulling through because it has definitely help made me who I am right now.

I’m a bit more in tune with my feelings; I’m more confident, I believe in my dreams more, I love the people around me more than ever,  I’m challenging myself to be better at everything, I’m more open to things… the list goes on. It was definitely the year of growth and happiness.

I want to thank each and every one of you for being a constant source of inspiration to help keep me going  by reading your sweet comments, emails, letters or when I meet you in person. Thank you for following along and joining me on my little journey of style, travel, food and everything in between. Thank you for all the love and support you gave  me/ my blog/ my shop in 2013 and the years before- it means the world to have you right there with me. Thank you for visiting my blog and taking time out of your day to check in on my life! You guys are amazing and just remember, If I could follow my dreams and live out my dreams, YOU can too!! Don’t give up!

Wishing you a blessed 2014 full of health, prosperity, happiness, love, passion and success! May this year bring you everything you ever wished for and more… work hard + play harder! Dreams do come true- let 2014 be the beginning of that dream! Cheers!

See you in 2014…. love you all. x

travel

the Ruins.

RUINSCOVER

Taking you guys back to my beautiful trip to Oaxaca, México with my good friends from Guelaguetza restaurant earlier this month.. We were extremely lucky to have been able to visit the Mitla ruins.

It was such a fascinating feeling to be able to walk through these ruins that are one of the most important archeological sites in the state of Oaxaca. These ruins were occupied and functioned as the main religious center when the Spanish arrived in the 1520s. It was exciting to know a little bit more about these ruins through our friends, Bricia and Fernando, who showed us around and told us a little bit of the Mitla history.

I pranced around and felt very honored and proud to be there. Definitely one of my 2013 highlights!

Stay tuned in next week as I still have so many photos from Oaxaca that I have yet to posts + outfits and diary!
