Chic and Flirty

A little motivation for my new workout routine. I adore this J-Crew skirt circa 2009. Very chic and flirty! Just a few thousand more laps and voila!

Have a fabulous week!  xoxo gabriela

Bright Young Things

I am loving the 2012 color trends!  These hair ties from Emi & Jay make me smile. They scream "BE HAPPY" :)

Hot pink and bright orange mixed with neutrals are a perfect combination. A little loud energy mixed in with a sober basic is a new classic. This is the year to get a little loud. xoxo gabriela

And the winner is...

This week just keeps getting better! First, I have started my workout routine again! That is big, I have been doing a class called Nia it's the kind of class that looks all fun and easy (a mix of martial arts and dance) but the next day you can't move, that kind! Second, I WON the One thing, One Week Challenge from Amy's Creative Side Blog Challenge! Thank you Amy for the motivation to finish up. You can see the little beauty I made here. Third, I will be making my own lipstick at The Modern Beauty Company!

This is kinda a big deal! I have have been looking for the perfect lip color since I was five, when I started borrowing my mom's make-up.

p.s. How much do you love that leopard print blouse. J'Adore.

Hope you are having a great week too! xoxo gabriela

A mix of my favorite colors

On to my next project. A very lady-like lap quilt. These prints remind me of my mom, feminine, bright, beatiful, with a little edge. I love mixing coral, chartreuse and neutrals.

My mom is amazing. She sent me a Facebook note recently which she calls a 'facebook' as in "I sent you a facebook" :) "Testing my ipad". She rocks! 
Have a wonderful day!!! xoxo gabriela

Ahhh 2012 :)

I LOVE new years! I'm a little late but I think I am ready to get this new year started! What am I up to these days? Among other things I have just created this little beauty. I entered the One Thing, One Week Challenge from amy's creative side's blog challenge. I adore this Lark print by Amy Butler one of her more stylish prints no? Speaking of adorable. I am starting off the new year with this uber cute personalized planner from Plum Paper. Ok, ladies lets make this a GREAT year!
