Boho Chic Decor Ideas: Living Rooms

Oct 30, 2013

I love being surrounded by colorful textiles, beautiful details and eclectic furniture, especially while I'm working on creative projects. Even at home, in my little office space, I always try to keep it colorful, stylish and inspiring.
Some time ago I shared with you a post about Boho Chic Decor Ideas for bedrooms and now I wanted to do a special post with inspiring ideas for boho chic living rooms. If you love boho, eclectic decor with some vintage pieces, but with a modern twist, then this post is for you. Hope you get inspired. Happy Monday!

Me encanta estar rodeada de textiles coloridos, detalles lindos y muebles eclécticos, especialmente cuando estoy trabajando en proyectos creativos. Aun cuando estoy en casa, en mi pequeña oficina, siempre trato de mantener mi entorno colorido, con estilo y sobre todo inspirador. Hace un tiempo atrás hice un post de decoración de estilo Boho chic para dormitorios, ahora quería compartir con ustedes este post de este estilo que me encanta pero esta vez para la sala principal. Si también te encanta el estilo Boho, la decoración ecléctica algo vintage pero a la vez con un toque moderno. Disfruten! Buen Lunes!

Love the idea in the picture below. Framing pieces of fabric, how clever!
What do you think?
Me encanto esta idea de enmarcar pedazos de tela!

And last but not least, below is a picture of my apartment (taken with my cellphone),

Tiny Devotions: Inspiring, Peaceful and Boho

Oct 13, 2013

There so many things that inspire me, one of them is definitely creative people that not only dare to follow their dreams but also spread a message that inspire others to do the same. At the end of the day, it's all about sharing your gift with the world and support each other. That's how I became very fond of this beautiful company, Tiny Devotions, which I don't even want to call them only a company, but a group of wonderful souls creating inspiring pieces for the free spirited people out there. Tiny Devotions gathers a group of bohemian & yogi fashionistas who love Mala Beads, sacred pieces that inspire their wearers to live a more inspired, peaceful, and intention based lives. I love to wear my beautiful mala beads necklace on a daily basis; the one I'm wearing on the photos below is the "Equilibrium Mala" which is all about balance in your life and finding your centre. I love this necklace not only because for its meaning, but also for the beautiful color that goes great with any outfit. 

Hay muchas cosas que me inspiran, una de ellas es definitivamente, la gente creativa, que no solo se atreven a perseguir sus sueños, si no que también llevan un mensaje que inspiran a otros a hacer lo mismo. Al final del día se trata de compartir tu talento con el mundo y apoyarse mutuamente. Es así que me volvi super fan de esta compañía llamada Tiny Devotions, a los que no quiero llamarlos solo una compañía porque son mas que eso, son un grupo de personas maravillosas dedicadas a crear piezas inspiradoras para todos los espíritus libres del mundo. Tiny Devotions cuenta con un grupo de gente que ama el yoga y el estilo Boho ademas de ser apasionados de las piedras Mala, las cuales son piezas que te inspiran a vivir una vida llena de paz y buenas intenciones. A mi me encanta ponerme mi collar de Tiny Devotions todos los días; el que estoy usando en las fotos de abajo se llama "Equilibrio" que se trata de mantener el balance en tu vida y encontrar tu centro. Este collar es mi favorito no solo por su significado, si no también por el hermoso color que combina con todo.

Meditation time

Ever since I started meditating, even if it's for only five or ten minutes each day, I feel more inspired, peaceful and happy. In this fast and stressful world, it's important to take sometime during the day to calm down the mind and fill your soul with positive energy in order to continue with your journey in a more balanced way. While I meditate, I feel that I have a peaceful space where I can also say my intention for the day. Having an intention keeps you grounded and gives you a sense of direction especially if you are trying to accomplish your dreams. Every dream begins with an intention. 

Desde que comencé a meditar, aunque sea por solo cinco o diez minutos al día, me siento mas inspirada, mas feliz y con mucha mas paz. En este mundo que va tan rápido y muchas veces lleno de estrés, es muy importante calmar la mente y llenar tu espíritu de energía positiva para así poder continuar con tu día a día de una manera mas balanceada. Mientras medito, siento que tengo un espacio para mi en el cual puedo decir mis buenas intenciones para el dia. Tener una intención te mantiene centrado y te da una sensación de dirección y rumbo especialmente si estas tratando de alcanzar tus sueños. No hay que olvidar que cada sueño comienza con una intención. 


Natural and Organic Beauty Products

May 13, 2013

I love trying new natural and/or organic beauty products that besides their great quality, are also cruelty free (non- animal tested) and care for the environment. I personally don't wear much makeup on a daily basis, but when I do, it's usually very natural looking. I do like to take care of my skin though, especially because we're always exposed to the sun and climate changes.  

Why Natural/Organic products?

I prefer Natural & Organic products for my skin because they're free of unnecessary chemicals such as Parabens, Sulfates, and Petrochemicals. Besides, I definitely love to support eco friendly products that reduce the impact on our environment. If you'd like to start using natural and/or Organic beauty products, I recommend you to start with one of the products you use on a daily basis, maybe your deodorant or moisturizer. You can even make your own beauty products at home, simple and easy.
This time I wanted to share with you some of the products I'm currently trying.  I'll be doing a future post (part 2) showing other product recommendations. Stay tuned! 

Closer view of each product. See description/review below.

1. Burt's bees Lip Balm and Lipgloss Those two are my best friends, I always carry them in my bag. The lip balm is the best I've ever tried, it works great in Winter when your lips get dry and/or protects you from the sun as well. They have a lovely selection of flavors, the one I'm currently using is the one with Pomegranate Oil.
The Lip gloss is also great, I love its consistency, not too sticky like other brands I've tried before. The color I'm currently using is 233 Rosy Dawn. Love that shade of pink!
2. Erbaviva Refreshing Foot Balm I've tried different foot balms in the past and this one is by far my favorite. I love it because it really works! It's perfect for girls like me who walk a lot and love to pamper their feet after a long day. The balm's consistency is a little bit heavy, like a scrub, but it works perfectly to stimulate circulation and give comfort to your tired feet.
I'm an aromatherapy lover, so as my little indulgence, I use the Erbaviva Essential Oils. My favorite scents are Peppermint & Eucalyptus. Just two or three drops in your bubble bath and you'll feel in heaven. Promise.

3. Burt's Bees Day & Nigh cream: The Radiance Day Cream by Burt's Bees is one of my current favorites, I love it because it's light, soft and enhances your skin's natural radiance. You definitely feel your skin fresher, smoother & more moisturized. This day cream is made with Royal Jelly which contains 8 essential amino acids, Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 C, D & E along with Niacin and Folic Acid. Naturally fabulous indeed!
For the night I'm trying the Intense Hydration night cream infused with Clary Sage (a plant known for its ability to trap and retain moisture). Its consistency is heavier than the morning cream almost like a facial mask, just perfect for the night. I also love its natural frangance! 

4. Jojoba Oil: This wonderful oil is many products in one! You can use it on your skin to give it extra moisture, or on your hair, scalp or even as a makeup remover. I personally use it on my hair, especially on the ends to add a little bit of shine and moisture since that area can get easily damage due to the heat exposure. You can find it at your Favorite Trader Joe's store. 

More natural bliss!
Honey + Cinnamon Mask

A little secret that is super effective, natural & easy to make: 

* 2 spoons of organic honey (100% honey not sugar added) 
* 1 table spoon of ground cinnamon 
Mix both ingredients carefully until you create an even consistency. Apply it on your face, you can do it before going to bed. The properties of honey and cinnamon are many, but when mixed together they work wonderfully on your skin. Besides, they're both anti bacterial which is great for acne and a great way to have a glowing skin. 

In order to use any of the products I'm reviewing on this post, please make sure you're not allergic to any of the ingredients before trying them out. You can read the labels to see the full description.  

Tip: When looking for certified Natural and/or Organic products, make sure they show the logos below on their labels.
