A Positive Attitude

This week my morning news delivered one of the saddest stories I've heard in a long time, the passing of Wayne Dyer. I have never been much into self help, but have to admit his book "Wishes Fulfilled" gave me the hope and courage I needed during times when many people were pushing me down.


Even though I didn't follow the teaching of his book to the T, the thing that I absorbed the most was to believe in myself, and isolate those that did not believed in me. By doing that, last year I was able to beat the odds and made one my dreams come true.


No matter is you believed in his teaching, of if you didn't one thing is certain, he dedicated his life to spread hope, positivism and the idea that we have to be kind to one another in an increasingly difficult world. For those reasons alone I am saddened that we have lost someone that did a lot of good in this world.


Until September 8, Hay House will be offering his movie "The Shift" for free. I have not seen it yet, but I will tonight as I am making life changing decisions that require for me to believe in myself, stay focused and always keep a positive attitude... Actually, It should just be the way we always are.

Have a day filled with great things!

Plans for the Weekend

If it was any other regular week I would totally agree it is a little premature to star making plans, but since this coming weekend is sort of special in the U.S. it is totally fine. Actually, if you didn't have plans days ago, chances are you were not going to find much to do or have to pay a high price for it.



I was later making my plans but decided to take a trip to an area of Florida I've never been to but always heard it is beautiful... the Tampa and St.Pete area. Shamefully, I admit that even though I have lived in Florida (at different times in my life) for many years, I have never ventures to the West Coast of the state.


I've a;ways wanted to go because one of the best DalĂ­ museum in the world is located there, and that is something one cannot miss. Besides that, the beach is famous for its beautiful Gulf water beaches and will be taking a little trip to a small town called Tarpon Springs, known as having a large Greek population and selling antique and natural sea sponges!


What are your Labor Day Weekend plans? And if you are not in the US, we'd like to hear yours as well!

Have a lovely middle of the week!

Hello September

I want to send big hello to everyone out there at the start of this great month. You might think why it's great... Well, this year I enter the last of my 30s and want to do it fabulously.


It's been six months since I blogged and have to admit I have missed it greatly. Life got seriously in the way of some projects dear to my hear, but slowly and surely I'm making changes to put my personal projects in the Top Five of my priorities.

Taken at the Braker's Hotel in Palm Beach

I want to add a few trips I have planned, more food and drinks recipes, and tons of inspiring images. Look forward to renew my contacts with amazing bloggers I've met through the years, as well as getting to know new ones along the way.

Have a lovely month!

Portland

Yesterday, while watching my Instagram feed, I came across a photography workshop with Chris Burkard in Portland and was saddened I cannot make it... but also want really badly to go across the U.S. to see this beautiful city.


This city located in the Pacific Northwest has such natural beauty all around that  people flock there just to enjoy of astonishing outdoor activities. It's weather is a contrast of warm summers and chilly wet winters, which makes it the ideal place for growing roses.


A heaven for food enthusiasts, coffee and beer drinkers, this town counts with the most independent and micro breweries than any other city in the world, along with creative cuisine and tons of food trucks.


So, if I get to go to the workshop, be sure I'll let you know. But no matter what happens, this place has moved to my must visit list!


Have a lovely day!

Honey, honey!

For the past couple of months I've been growing a beautiful lavender plant. A couple of weeks ago it bloomed with the most beautiful little flowers and I was so excited about them that I got late to work... ha!


That same night I got on the internet and found a few recipes of what to do with the flowers once they dried. While doing my research I found recipes for infused honey, which sounded like a fabulous idea as an ingredient to add to my breakfast green tea.


Honey not only tastes great but is also an alternative to sugar, especially refined sugar. Used your infused lavender when drinking tea, to sweeten lemonade, add it your morning plain yogurt to make it interesting, and make it the best companion to fresh fruits when having desert.


Have a lovely day!

Happy March!

I want to wish everyone a beautiful new month of March... As I was looking at how long it's been since I wrote anything, I was quite shocked at how much time had passed.


As I sit here and reflect on all the things that have happened since then, I am happy to be back in this space and share with everyone ideas, photos and happenings that I find all around. Today's image is very symbolic for me, as I have started a new life not long ago and new opportunities are presenting to me.

Have a lovely month!

Travel Clicks

I love traveling but hate today's schedule is a little foul because I've been awake since 4 am, a pretty difficult time for someone who loves to sleep as much as I do... ha! Once again I'm on my way to Miami to see my friends and enjoy of some time off and relax a lot.


Here are a few links to start off the week:


This is an amazing article about the blogger who is pulling $8 Million a Year... Amazing!!!


I loved reading this about Avoiding Hidden Hotel Fees to save myself a little headache on this trip... ha!



Wherever you go, you should always dress the part you're trying to play... your Personal Brand!


With fall fast approaching, I'm definitely planning on getting up to date with the Season's Lipstick Color.



Finally, here's the best of NYFW!

Have a lovely day!
