Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and this year as every year it is about our amazing mother’s, but in a way I am already considering myself as a mother so it is that much more special to me! So I am sure you are all searching and researching and thinking of ways to surprise your moms, as well as your wives:) It can always be a little overwhelming finding the right gift for one of the most special person in our lives, which is why I am always on the look for sites or stores that offer us unique pieces, and a beautiful selection, but not overwhelming us with too many things! So when I found out about Uncommon Goods, I was truly excited, those of you who have been following me, by now you know how I love to support independent designers, and style my looks with unique pieces, and well simply find little gems that make me feel special, and that is exactly what you can find at Uncommon Goods.
They are based in Brooklyn, and their essence is all about giving designers a platform for creativity, and connecting those artists with us:) Most of their products are hand made here in the US, and their mission is to be environmentally friendly in everything from their own company to the materials used by the designers to create/handcraft their designs! So of course I had to get my hands on their Links of Love Necklace! And from this necklace I was inspired to create my Mother’s Day look, with this Raoul Primrose dress, and my Zara heels (who have been proven to be the most comfy heels in my pregnancy:)! Hope you like this look;)

The adventures of pregnancy continue in our daily routine, my hubby and me are trying to take it as easy as we can, enjoy every moment, kick, and emotions that come with this exciting time, as well as other issues that arise… One issue is traveling, where is safe or not safe to go, when could I travel, will I be comfortable, or not??? But at the same time it is all so new, and I have to adapt and adjust to the situations as they come up, and after all it’s only a few more months and then all the “sacrifices” will make sense, and will be MORE than worth it! Another issue is can I wear prints while pregnant??? The answer is HELL to the yea;) All I hear is restrictions, in what to eat or not, where to go or not, exercise, etc… But I will not take no for an answer when it comes to my personal style:) So when I saw Raoul’s new collection, inspired by artistic prints, I fell in LOVE! I have been a fan of Raoul’s designs and garments for a while, it’s always so easy to wear and casual yet feminine, my favorite combination! So I decided to go for this Wave print head to toe…
Por fin tengo el momento de escribiros en Español, y no solo en Ingles! Ya que estas ultimas semanas han sido un poco locas! Como ya habeis visto estoy mas que embarazada y posando con mis looks de pre-mama! Espero que os guste, y lo disfruteis tanto como yo;)! Aqui teneis mi ultimo look! Es de la nueva coleccion de Raoul! Cuando una se queda embarazada hay tantas “reglas” de que hacer, lo que no hay que comer, ejercicios que no se pueden hacer, etc… Pero en cuanto a nuestro estilo personal, creo que es importante poder crear looks, y vestirnos de la manera que nos hace sentir bien con nosotras mismas y con nuestro nuevo cuerpo! Disfrutarlo a tope, sin pensarnoslo demasiado;)! Espero que os guste este look…
Spring is in the air, and it makes me dream of flowy, breezy midi skirts, and dresses! So here are my favourite picks from Asos.
La primavera ya llego, las flores nos sonrien, y a mi me hacen soñar de faldas midi, y vestidos que nos hagan disfrutar de este precioso tiempo del año! Aqui teneis mis piezas preferidas de Asos.
Before I got pregnant, I couldn’t even imagine myself with a belly (my flat belly and my abs is all I’ve known and worked for all of my adult my life), and I won’t lie the thought of it freaked me out! But now I am embracing it with all the love and happiness within me! I am 18 weeks now, and it’s kind of amazing how fast it’s growing. The other day the baby started moving and kicking, and in the midst of that miracle I felt pains (stab like pains) but who cares about the pains?! I never thought I could feel pain and joy like this together, I know it may sound cheesy to some, but it is the biggest cliché of all times, this is the most amazing miracle… So now my hubby and me go gaga over every time our baby moves:) So going back to embracing this little (big) baby bump, I have decided that why not wear tight clothes (while they still fit), I always imagined that I would wear only loose, comfy clothes, but there is something really beautiful and empowering that comes with accepting and loving my new curves (in all it’s paleness), after all this only lasts just a few more months! These Wai Ming trousers, remind me of domino chips (actually this whole look does), and just like the domino effect my emotions and symptoms are falling right into place and following it’s order, which I couldn’t be happier about!

I cannot hide it anymore, and quite frankly I am so excited and delighted that I want to share it with all of you! No I haven’t put on this extra weight because I’ve been indulging in fast food, or not working out (though it did happen in the first few months), but the truth is I am 18 weeks pregnant, and (we are) SO excited! I have been struggling with how I wanted to share it and if I even wanted to share it, since the past few months have been all about hiding it, and basically being in a cocoon due to ongoing nausea and fatigue (which Im sure those of you who have been or are pregnant are more than familiar with)! What better way to start this new chapter in my life, and welcome spring than with an all white (angelic) look? Fortunately I am still wearing normal clothes (no maternity yet, though soon I won’t have a choice;) And my dear and talented friend Emily, has yet again designed breath taking pieces for Spring with her Wai Ming collection, and this Skylar dress is my favorite…
