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!

Photography Monday

This week will be photo crazy for me, as I will be visiting a few places for the purpose of photographing and will be working on a few photos for this blog. It's been a while since I've taken good photos and feel I'm a bit rusty, but hope will get into it very easily! 

Here are a few links to start off the week!


I love this article from Free People about the last activities before the end of the summer. Even though some of us are not saying good bye to summer and other are welcoming it, these are some great ideas all the same!


Of course, no activity is complete without a great soundtrack and a summer inspired one is always a great idea. Do you have a favorite summer tune? Mine came out a bit late in the summer but still love it - Do you? by Spoon.


I found these really cute backgrounds for you electronics which for me are fantastic, because I love glamouring up my computer from time to time.


New York Fashion Week is in full swing and my favorite blog for checking out the styles in Ann Street Studio, along with this fabulous NYC photographer's Instagram account... check her out!


Finally, I want to invite you to take a look at Hotel Punta Islita over at my newest travel venture called Alluring Runaways... It is a beautiful eco-luxury hotel!

Have a lovely week!!!

Hello September!

I want to welcome this month with open arms and to celebrate it I'm coming back to blogging with renewed energy and ideas. I cannot think of a better month to start fresh as I turn 5 years of blogging and celebrate my birthday... Amazing!!!


Over the past couple of months tons of things have happened, from reinventing my business and designing a new corporate identity (see HERE) to starting a new venture with some great partners (see HERE), things have changed and moved faster than I realized... and believe they will continue that way!


I will traveling around pretty often, will come up with some decor ideas and ever a few DIY's, and will be writing much more as I have a few ideas about the written word swirling in my head. Next week I will let you know in greater detail what to expect and when as I'm fine tuning a few details. I'll see you tomorrow with anew article to tickle your sense of travel.

Have a beautiful day!
