Party planning: Baby Shower

Yesterday we threw a surprise baby shower for our lovely Marie, who's having a baby boy. This kind of events take a lot of planning and organization. We first exchanged emails with ideas, then got together and started working. Everything was so nice and cute, our future Mamma was happy and we all had a great time. 

Here's what we did:


Starters: guacamole & eggplant dips with grilled cheese & tortilla chips
Pasta Carbonara 
White wine
Dessert: Strawberry tourbillon cake, herbal tea or coffee.

3. Follow the light lanterns by Emma Jeffs, this cuties led our surprised Mamma to the party.


Outside the box

Taking some time to reboot and think.

After some intense months I've been able to design again (or at least getting into the mood to do so). Took my camera and started doing some shots of our living room and of my little guy (he posed and all, so cute my boy!).

Been rereading some of my favorite books, trying some of the "games" that made want to become a designer. Relying on love. 

Found this article very helpful, as in this hard times is easier to look the other way. It's rough but being realistic actually helps and force us to focus in order to achieve a certain goal.


Nice to meet you II

They've been some improvements since my post about professional meetings. A new tool has arrived, a beautiful white iPad (thanks mom & dad!).

Selling has become a very important part in my professional life, somehow I'm having a lot of meetings where I have to make a presentation. Getting people together and try collaborations has been my priority. So I've been updating (on a budget) my looks. One thing I had to put in consideration was the iPad case. There are so many gorgeous covers out there, I wanted one that was both protective and stylish, I went for budget and color to make the list shorter.

I decided to pick a black one, that's my color, I have to deal with that. So I went for a beautiful clutch by Marshall Bergman. Fits both iPad and Macbook Air 11", it's perfect!.

Now the looks:
I've been trying both casual and formal looks, depending on the client. For the first one I went a little urban, with a T-shirt and jacket. Medium height heels, more comfortable in case you have to run to another appointment.

For the second one I went for something a little bit formal, not too much, I got this top at Zara and fell in love, the back it's just exquisite. In this case I used super high heels and red lipstick.

Accessories: 1 / 2 / 3


Shades of Blue

So in love with this photos of the extraordinary Christina Hendricks, she graces the cover of the latest issue of  The Hollywood Reporter. Feminine and provocative as her character in Mad Men.

Twenty Five, Ninety Five

That's the price of my super lovely buy of the season, I fell in love with this pants at first sight. So spring, so colorful, so happy and fun. And affordable!

I loved Kate Spade's campaign for this season, ever since I watched their musical chairs I became obsessed with the look with the pink pants. Once I got them, it was a matter of adding some accesories and patterned heels (look 1).

Even though I love style I'm not one of those girls that buy all new trends every season. I have to buy on budget so I'm pretty realistic when it comes to fashion, I'd love to accessorize or use more colors, but I have to keep it real and simple. Besides if you are comfortable and feel nice you show it and that's all that matters.

Happy pink spring!

All this things happening, so incredible challenges, but most important, opportunities. My father always says to me how we have to be able to take chances and grab opportunities as they come, 'cause they don't do so often.

The only thing is that I've been running for the last month like a maniac, and I mean literally, I even take my flats in my bag to make errands after visiting clients, and still be able to pick up Ander on time.

My lovely boy has been amazing and supportive, I've been trying to balance a couple of important projects and being a mom. I've even managed to have him a play date with cupcakes and all, it was the first time he had a school friend at home and he was pretty proud.

Hopefully I'll soon be able to show here some new products for my Creative Shop. So excited! Even though my moments may be on blur they look as beautiful as this picture, taken by Ander.

Have a nice week.

Can I Just Say...

Some people see this day as a marketing strategy for a consumer audience. I'd like to see it like a perfect day to say "I love You" and kiss and hug my dear friends. To kiss husband passionately (Casablanca style), to remind my son how amazing life has been for me ever since I held him in my arms.

We are alive. I love you.

Song: We're Alive from My Name is You
