Online Orders :)

Hello Amigos!

These past weeks I have been doing lots and lots of online shopping I mean, what is a girl supposed to do when she’s faced with a health scare and is put on rest for a couple of weeks? Now, I think I have been on a budget with all the shopping. Ladies, you need to have a budget when you shop online or at a store, it is important and don’t think that only because you’re married you need to be on a budget, even when you’re single you need to learn how to manage your expenses. I believe this is very important!

I’ve been buying accessories, makeup, personal items, shoes and much more. It’s been quite the online shopping rush and the best thing you do not have to leave your house to shop. I personally do not mind it one bit, in fact I’ve gotten quite comfortable not going out and just shopping from the comfort of my own home. Es lo mejor! It’s the Best!

1. How do you stay positive?

Staying positive is something that takes work. The way I stay positive is by writing down my thoughts and honestly counting my blessings.

2. What makes you angry?

I’m a very easy going person, but one thing that truly gets my angry is unkind people. People that go out their way to be mean, negative, or insulting to one another. We never know what someone is going through you need to be kind as much as possible.

3. How do you deal with stress?

Last year I learned the hard way on how not to deal with stress. After holding in all my feelings about a situation I was dealing with for a long time I had a minor nervous attack. I had a rapid heartbeat, my arm went numb, and I was on the verge of fainting. I was rushed to the hospital where I was treated as a “ stroke patient.” After many tests and a cat scan it was determined that a stroke had not happened but it was actually a nerves breakdown. My body shut down and it gave up. It was time for me to release all pain, hurt, sadness and resentment. Now I deal with the stress by training my mind to not go their, that place of pain. I started writing down my feelings in the moment as it happens and also sharing my story with fellow bloggers talking about things has helped me tremendously.

4. Have you ever shared a personal struggle? 

Yes. going to back to question 3, I went through a bad year and after suffering a nerves attack I started sharing my story my struggle with friends and strangers. I want to turn the struggle into triumph.

5. Do you believe in the saying “Good things come to those who wait?”

I do believe in the saying” good things come to those who wait”. You just can’t wait to long too long, you have to take some things into your own hands.

6. What is your all time favorite song?

My all time favorite song is “A Woman’s Worth” by Alicia Keys.

7. What is your favorite part about blogging?

My favorite part about blogging is the connections I have made with other bloggers.

8. What do you most enjoy writing about?

I enjoy writing about fashion, I truly enjoy the art of dressing up and playing around with different colors and patterns.

9. Which is your favorite season? why?

My favorite season is Spring. The temperature is just right, flowers are blooming, its just a pretty season. 

10. What is your favorite holiday?

My favorite holiday is Christmas, there’s nothing like spending time with family, eating amazing food, telling stories, laughing, Christmas décor and seeing the children’s faces as they open up their gifts.

11. What are your favorite online shopping stores?

I don’t shop much online. But I do love Modcloth. 

12. Describe your blog in one sentence.

My blog is a simple approach to style, décor and lifestyle.

13. Are there any regrets you have from your past? anything you’d change?

I have no regrets, I just wished I wouldn’t have stayed quiet about certain situations, I should have spoken my mind more.

14. Where do you see yourself/your blog in 10 years?

I see my blog as a staple blog for everyone to check for simple minimal décor and style.

15. Do you want to become a professional blogger and do it as a living?

I would love to become a professional blogger and definitely do it for a living!

16. Do you believe in sponsorship’s for your blog?

I do believe in sponsorship and actually just started looking into it.

17. What do you like/dislike about social media?

I like the fact that you can connect with people all over the world with the same interests and likes as you; great bonds could be made. One thing I don’t like is that it’s easy for people to hide who they truly are behind a computer. We have to be aware.

18. Are you a trend-setter or trend-follower?

I would like to think that I’m a trend-setter. I’ve always had my own style and stick to it. No matter what. 

19. Are the photos you use on your blog originals or from other sources?

I use my own photos as well as photos I come across on Pinterest for inspiration.

20. Have you’ve ever collaborated with another blogger?

I have never collaborated with another blogger but would love to soon.

{Note}

Shirley and I met through the world of Blogosphere and Social Media, We instantly connected and became good friends. She’s actually the first blogger I met on here when I began my journey as a Lifestyle Blogger a year ago. She’s one of the few people that have inspired me to work harder and be nicer, Thanks Shirley! I am beyond blessed to have this blogging beauty in my life, she has been a source of encouragement and love… I am forever grateful for her life.

Hello Mac!

Hello Amigos!

“All good things come to those who wait…”

I’ve waited years for this and I’m finally so happy to share it because I am now typing from it, I ordered my Mac book Pro 15″ last week and I received it today! I’m so happy. The ASUS computer I had I gave it to my 18 year old niece because she was starting college courses her senior year in high school and I knew she needed an upgrade. My husband and I decided to give her my pc laptop because it is in great condition and now I’m glad I did because she has been using it for school non-stop. So, obviously, I’ve been having to use my husband’s laptop to write out all my posts, check my emails, and do research…. I’m also thankful for my iPhone 6 that has made a lot of this process much easier. This is actually my very early Christmas gift. YAY.

So, here meet my girl, Bella. Yes, I named her because this is something I’ve been wanting for a long time. Anyone know where I can get accessories for her? I’m thinking a cute cover for the laptop and keyboard. Check out the pics of Bella below:

love ya, mean it.
