Punch it Off!

As promised, here is another of the sporty looks I worked on with Simán. My trainer knows me too well, and he is very much aware of my hate relationship with cardio, however it is inevitable that I should dedicate some time every day to it. This is why, he is always trying to find alternatives to the typical 20 minute treadmill runs. Kickboxing has proven to be amongst my favorite options, it is a great way to release energy and get my heartbeat up.

Get Active!

_MG_2040

Two weeks into the year and I am sure we have all thought about getting healthier, getting leaner or getting active. While I lived abroad, exercising  was an issue always gnawing at the back of my head, but hardly becoming a reality. It had a little to do with my lack of time, and a lot to do with my lack of money. I did join a gym in Toronto, but the truth was that despite my determination, I always felt I wasn’t doing it right. So when I came back home, one of my brightest decisions was to get personal training.

Top 5: 2017 Golden Globes

I know, I know this post comes a bit late, but hey, better later than never! Award season has started. Back when I was living in London, as a fashion assistant to a celebrity stylist, I particularly remember this time of the year as one of the most hectic, nail-biting moments of them all. Now that I am on the other side of the lens, it all seems easier, more effortless, and definitely more glamorous. So with the tranquility of one who is only a spectator, but with the eye of one who is aware of what happens behind closed curtains, here are my top 5 looks from this year’s Golden Globes.

Let’s begin with Emily Ratajkowski. This Reem Acra look was perfection. The colour, the hair, the Hollywood glam, it was a flawlessly concocted attire. I am always searching for that one outfit that harmonizes sexiness and elegance, and to me, this was it. Allow me to say that it was Gold!

Coatepeque

On my first visit to Cardedeu Residence, an apartment hotel nestled on the slope that surrounds the Lake of Coatepeque, I fell in love with the place. A petite, modern designed compound that allows you to make the most of your stay. The place counts with spacious rooms that have breathtaking views of the lake, an infinity pool and equipment that will allow you to practice water sports. Me and my crew had an amazing time at Cardedeu, and it was a real shame to leave. I truly encourage you to visit if you get the opportunity to, it is great for groups of friends or families.

PS: I would like to thank all the staff at Cardedeu, who made my stay an unforgettable one!

A better you

Now that the new year is here, I am sure we are filled with excitement, and desire the to be better, to dare more, and to strive for greatness; in two words: TO CHANGE. In the little attempt to do so, I have been thinking that change doesn’t always need to be drastic. Most big changes occur over long periods of time. As a matter of fact, I truly believe that the best type of change, the ones that will last and make a difference are the small, but persistent ones. Like the drop of water that smoothes the surface of a rock, so will small changes polish us, and our societies in a steady, patient manner. And so, as we have heard so many times, if we want change, we have to make it happen, but I propose we do it in small doses.
