Last week, we moved into our new office, insert happy emojis here. It almost feels like a fresh new start and vibe which I can’t help but feel re-energized from because I have some exciting things planned for the blog + brand.
One of my easy breezy looks from last week consisted of classic pieces to get me through a day of meetings, moving things/furniture around the office and walking the new neighborhood in hopes of getting acquainted with new coffee shops, restaurants and shops. These flats came in handy!
A nice silky button up blouse always does the trick to get me through a long day. I splurged a bit on these cat flats that have been all over the internet because well, who doesn’t need them in their wardrobe?
Levi’s and Chanel always go hand in hand. I know, it totally looks like summer in LA by the way I’m dressed but I’m trying to take advantage of the heat because the temperature is slowly cooling down. Fall makes me happy, but not really, because I love the warmer weather!
So I’m a little devastated because my big external hard drive in which I work off of- I dump all of my photos in there instead of my laptop- got damaged two days ago! I accidentally dropped it and well the rest is history. Super worried, I ran to the nearest shop to get it fixed but only to hear that it is completely damaged and they weren’t sure they could recover any information in there.
I almost sat there in tears as I listened to the young guy explain this to me. The hard drive was full of photos and a bunch of new photos I hadn’t posted yet from New York, Maui, and Los Angeles. We sent it off to hopefully get it fixed and so now all I can do is wait here, impatiently. I’m completely sad but hopeful. Who knew a set of photos can be so heartbreaking when you completely lose them? Anyway, so now that I’m completely out of photos to share with you until I shoot new content, OR until I get my hard drive back (fingers crossed!!), I will share with you instagram photos of my latest trip: Miami.
As some of you may know, I’ve partnered up with Macys as one of their influencers to help celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. We’ve been touring across the country and stopping by key Macys department stores and having a panel discussion of what it means to be a Latina, how our heritage has influenced us and what the future holds for our heritage. It’s been a great conversation full of tips, stories and laughter. The goal is really to help inspire everybody in attendance with our stories. We’ve already made it through New York, Chicago and our latest stop, Miami.
I booked a couple of extra days in Miami after we finished my event at Macys to enjoy a little vacay with one of my best friends. We enjoyed beautiful weather, palm trees, sea food, neon bright bathing suits and a little sun bathing!
Now keep your fingers cross for me that I can recover everything in my hard drive so that I can share with you new content/photos, and make sure to come out to our next Macys destinations to help celebrate with us #HHM! Our next stops are:
SANTA CLARA – Macys Valley Fair Mall, Today, Oct. 2 @ 6:00pm
SAN DIEGO, CA – Macys Fashion Valley, Oct. 4th @ 2:00pm
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Macys North Star Mall, Oct. 11th @ 2:00pm
