The hot summer days of confidence

Summer is coming up, at least where I live, and I've been trying to double the amount of H20, to avoid the sugar as much as possible but I really can't stop having the addictive bread, seriously, I have one a day but I wish I could have bread just during the weekend, that's my goal. I really wanna be like Asians that have rice for breakfast! 

I really wanna be as healthy as possible, and I mean healthy but is not an easy road you have to make commitments and stick to those no matter what.  Whenever I go to a party and there is no food, I just don't eat crap, that's it. I was never that type of girl but then I decided to make an experiment with my body and this is what happened, my body started to blossom, my skin started to shine, everything started to change even my mood!!! I went to the an "alternative" nutritionist and she gave me these tips:
1) I stopped eating red meat, lambs, pigs, sausages and all that crap.  I've never cheated, it's been 3.5 YEARS and I've never felt better! and I will never go back. I just stick to fish, turkey and chicken every once in a while and I will not get rid of those.

2) Reduced the dairies to the limit. I might have a yogurt once a week, that's it. We do not need milk. Humans are the only human beings that drink milk from another animal until we are OLD!  I already had all the milk I needed when I was a child, so that makes sense. 

3) More water & green tea whenever I have the chance to oxygen my veins. I took Bobbi Brown advice and simple add lemon with no sugar to my water and that gives it a better flavor :P  I don't do this all the time but whenever I don't wanna drink water I use this helpful tip  and it works! Besides you can never have enough vitamin C in your diet, vitamin C rocks!

Results: My legs rock, my skin is glowing, my nails are stronger, my hair is healthy, my boobs are the size I wanted them, my butt is hot like fire! 

Tiny little changes in your life can improve your health, is just something that you know you can do without stress. Life is short, you should eat the things that make you happy, but have a balance. If one day you eat crap, next day detox!

Next goal: Now that I went back to school I haven't had the chance to workout I do dance whenever I hear music on, but  next year I will sign in the gym to achieve all I have in mind.

Whenever I feel good with lots of confidence I reward myself and buy something special, is a prize for sticking to this program which is not easy but "Nothing taste as good as healthy feels"

The secret code

This is the latest ring I got: Is called  secret code and is from Actually, this is the first time I have ever bought a jewelry from them and I love it, I feel mysterious whenever  I wear it!  I once saw it at the store and I couldn't get off my head.... I was going crazy, that ring started talking to me as soon as I was trying to fall asleep, lol. I think this happens to lots of women, shoes, purses, clothes and rings, talk to us, and since we don't wanna end up in  mental hospital, we cure ourselves without having a shrink's appointment! LOL!

I have a "slim" finger and I always have to have all my rings "taylored" but this ring came in different sizes and it was like finding the perfect shoe, it fitted perfectly!

The best thing is that you can change the combination and I added my own secret numbers! They come in two different colors, silver and black.

Here is a picture of me wearing the mysterious ring. Oh and you can also take a look a the nicest tablecloths I got, I love the french fabric! ♥ Nails:Opi

Record Guiness: The tiniest kitchen ever!

Kitchens rock! 

I like all kinds of kitchens, "weird," colorful, elegant, classic, modern etc. I love the relaxed feelings of kitchens,  I think people get to be themselves when  they are cooking , to me is a way of expression. 

I've lived in other 3  places before, and I never thought I'd actually pick this one as my favorite because this is the tiniest one lol! 

I had no choice, either I made it heaven or a living hell that I would complain  daily due to the lack of space. So I decided to make a funtional petite corner! It makes me feel great because it has everything I need and love: everything is brown, black and silver which works great for such a tiny space. It makes it look organized and modern, specially when is the first thing you see when you come inside my apt, so is really easy to keep it organized and cleaned!

I made that black board to write possitive messages / quotes. I love arriving home and reading them after a long day of work, they make me happy as soon as I arrive or need some confidence before leaving home! Note: We all need a little boost of confidence every once in a while :)

When did I start loving kitchens? I think it started in a restaurant... My brother was a chef in a posh restaurant in FL and I would go and seat in one of the stainless steal tables and watch him cook with such a passion. I really loved that everything was silver and nice and neat,  his work place was always spick & span, that's how I started to love stainless steal!  Aww this bring me back such sweet memories; he was always waiting for me with fresh broccoli and whenever he cashed his paycheck he  gave me 100 bucks for clothes when my parents weren't doing that well with their finances, which really made my life when I was a teenayer! 

I still wanna improve it a little bit. I really wanna put more shelves and a place to put my vodka and wine bottles, yay!  I had a picture in my hand and one day I started searching for ideas and I found JUST want I wanted! Maybe the secret is working , he he :)

We will have to hire someone and I don't know how much that's gonna cost but I hope to do it in the near future I 'll post pictures as soon as I make this project happen!

This is what I call a SPA!

I really enjoy visiting design blogs & websites, and one of my favorite is dedicated to luxury design. . I love it because it has the most amazing pictures, here I found the best picture of a SPA located in Phuket, Thailand! 

I simple adore this because it has everything I would ever need to relax. The view is breathtaking, and love how the blue soft tiles with running fresh water connect with the sea! This is just amazing...

Thailand is one of my top 10 destinations! 

Here is another good picture of a SPA, this is lovely.

scissors, paper & glue

Okay so this is my first blog entry! I decided to start by something that makes me have a lot of fun and helps me with stress: Collages! 

Give me a pair of scissors, some glue and I go crazy lol. Is nothing pro, just for fun.  

Tips: I really like using double scotch tape ‘cause that’s like using crazy-glue on a paper i.e. it works great for edges. What I do, is pick an image, put the tape then I begin to cut them, and save them. So whenever I feel inspired I just grab a paper  (notebook) and get my pictures that already have the tape on, so I just remove the other side of the double scotch tape, so basically they work as a sticker!
