Natural Bohemian

Spread your wings, feel the ocean breeze...
if you wonder where dreams lay, search in your heart...
It's good to keep your feet on the ground, as long as it is to dance...

Abre tus alas, siente la brisa del océ te preguntas donde descansan los sueños,
entonces busca en tu corazón...
es bueno mantener los pies en la tierra, mientras sea para bailar...

Let the wind play with your hair while you fall sleep on the sand...
make the sunset and the moon your best friends.

Deja que el viento juegue con tu cabello mientras te quedas dormida en la arena...
Haz del atardecer y la luna tus mejores amigos.

Today, breathe deeply...stay calm...embrace the moment...
Dream, wish, hope and most of all, love.

Hoy, respira profundo con mucha calma, atesora el momento...
sueña, desea, espera y sobre todo, ama.

Taylor Swift goes Boho

Vogue Magazine February 2012
Photographed by Mario Testino

I love the 70's Boho style with a rocker chic twist! It definitely looks great on Taylor Swift.
Do you prefer this Boho style on her or the usual look, more romantic & sweet?

Me encantó el estilo Boho de los 70's con un toque de rock and roll.
Definitivamente le queda muy bien a Taylor Swift.
Prefieres este estilo para ella o te gusta mas su estilo de siempre, dulce y femenino?
Me gustaría saber que opinan.

Golden Globes 2012: Top 10 Dresses on the Red Carpet

1. Angelina Jolie wearing Atelier Versace.
Love the silhouette and the color. Red + nude look so chic together.
I also love the fact that she didn't wear almost any jewelry which makes the dress stand out even more.
The hair was perfect! It shows off her beautiful features.

2. Sofia Vergara wearing a Vera Wang dress.
This dress is a work of art. The texture is amazingly beautiful as well as the silhouette.
I love everything about it except the color, but it's just a personal taste. What do you think?

3. Shailene Woodley hits the red carpet in Marchesa.
I love this dress! I know the color may be a little too soft for her skin color,
but I still think it goes perfectly with her hair and eyes.
I just love the ethereal feel of this dress and the silhouette.

4. Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji
Talking about a soft color palette, here we have a beautiful lady wearing the perfect color & silhouette.
I adore the way the dress drapes on her body. She accessorized the whole look nicely.

5. Nicole Kidman in Versace
I couldn't help but looking at this dress over and over again and the more I look at it the more I love it!
The pattern created with those beautiful beads is really inspiring.
This dress is definitely all about details & perfect fit.

6. Jessica Alba in Gucci
Jessica Alba always looks impeccable on the Red Carpet. This dress is so elegant and beautiful.
I love how she kept the hair & makeup simple and pretty.

7. Emma Stone in Lanvin
It was a breath of fresh air on the Red Carpet. Love the beautiful color and fabric.
I like the belt a lot. I think it added personality to the entire look.

8. Salma Hayek in Gucci
Another breath of fresh air on the Red Carpet. She looks modern, sophisticated & sexy.
I don't know you, but I think Salma looks even hotter with the years, I don't know how she does it!

9. Viola Davis in Emilio Pucci
I find this dress super chic yet sexy. The color choice couldn't be better, and the silhouette
is just perfect. Gorgeous hair & makeup!

10. Diane Agron in Giles
This dress is a work of art. Very different from what
I've seen before on the Red Carpet, yet beautifully made and sophisticated.
The hair & make up couldn't be a better complement for this unique dress.
Love it.

So which ones were your favorites? I'd love to read your comments.

Old San Juan: Puerto Rico's Bohemian paradise

An entire weekend is not enough time to explore this charming and soulful city in Puerto Rico named Old San Juan. From the narrow streets full of adoquines (cobble stones) to the beautiful wooden balconies, the Old San Juan is a must see. There's a famous song inspired by this amazing city, the name of the song is: En mi Viejo San Juan and the author's name is Noel Estrada.
I was lucky enough to travel to Puerto Rico during the Holidays and I couldn't be happier! I know Puerto Rico quite well since I lived there for about two years. I spent so many weekends looking at the sunset at El Paseo de la Princesa and shopping at the little boutiques in the area and also buying handmade pottery from the artisans. I've also sold some of my creations there during Noches de Galeria (Art Gallery nights at Old San Juan). I have so many fond memories of Puerto Rico than a single post is not enough to describe them. However, I wanted to share with you this small yet beautiful part of Puerto Rico through pictures. If you're a boho girl/boy at heart, you'll love the Old San Juan for sure. If you're planning to go to Puerto Rico, please visit the old San Juan especially during the weekends since there's always music, artisans, and nice things going on. And last but not least, don't forget to try a Piragua (Puerto Rican shaved ice dessert covered with syrup) from your local Piragüero at the Old San Juan :-)

Una semana completa no es suficiente para explorar esta encantadora ciudad con alma soñadora llamada Viejo San Juan en Puerto Rico. Desde las angostas callecitas llenas de adoquines hasta los hermosos balcones de madera, el Viejo San Juan es un sitio que se debe visitar de seguro. Se han hecho hasta canciones en honor a esta linda ciudad, la mas conocida es sin duda: En Mi Viejo San Juan cuyo autor es Noel Estrada. Tuve la suerte de visitar Puerto Rico en estas Navidades y la pase super lindo por alla. Conozco Puerto Rico bastante bien ya que he vivido por alla por dos años. Pase tantos fines de semana observando el atardecer en El Paseo de la Princesa y comprando cosas lindas de las boutiques del lugar y artesanos que trabajan en el área. También tuve la oportunidad de vender algunas de mis creaciones en Noches de Galería en el Viejo San Juan. Tengo tantos recuerdos bonitos que un solo post no es suficiente para contarlos todos. Sin embargo, quería compartir con ustedes un poquito de esta ciudad con las fotos que tome ese día. Si eres una chica/chico Boho de corazón, esta ciudad te va a fascinar. Si estas planeando ir a Puerto Rico, por favor no dejes de visitar el Viejo San Juan, especialmente en los fines de semana ya que siempre hay baile, celebraciones, artesanías, y muchas cosas para disfrutar. Ah y no te olvides de probar una piragua (raspadilla, raspado de hielo con dulce de frutas típicas del lugar) hecha por algún piragüero del lugar :-)

My outfit of the day at the old San Juan

I'm seriously in love with the beautiful top I was wearing that day! I wear it all the time because it's so pretty and versatile. I can totally wear this lovely sheer top during Summer and even Fall with a long sleeved top inside or a cute cardigan/jacket over. I've received many compliments in Puerto Rico and of course such a detailed and pretty slip has to be from Free People. It's not a secret that I love the store so I bought some presents from Free People during Holidays as well. By the way, Free People has such a cute selection of tunics especially long tunics that I'm loving right now. Thanks for the sweet comments on the previous post and hope you enjoy the pictures!

Estoy enamorada de este blusa que me puse el día que pasee en el viejo San Juan! Me la pongo todo el tiempo porque es super linda y versátil. Este hermoso sheer top puede ser usado tanto en Verano como en Otoño con un top pegadito por dentro o un cardigan/abrigo encima. Ya he recibido cumplidos en Puerto Rico gracias a ella y por supuesto este lindo slip tenia que ser de Free People. No es un secreto que esta marca me encanta, hasta comprado regalitos de Navidad de la tienda. A propósito, Free People tiene una hermosa selección de túnicas especialmente las tunicas largas que me gustan tanto. Gracias por los comentarios en el post anterior. Espero que les gusten las fotos de ahora! Besos.
