Yamamay #ciaosatelite

Las week was amazing, I had the pleasure of meeting Andy Torres mexican blogger of Style Scrapbook , she is an icon on the fashion industry world wide known, receiving over 2 million views per month.

She is really sweet and down to earth.  I was really excited because even though she is mexican she lives in Amsterdam and does not come to the American Continent quite often.

She took photos with everyone who asked and had a little chat with everyone at the opening, because (oh yes) I had to meet her at a fashion event full of celebrities.

Yamamay is an italian brand specialized in lingerie and beach clothes. Great quality, great style and even better prices! Go and check!

Here some pictures of the opening:

Brothers & Sisters

The first thing you should know is that I´m an only child. I don´t have any brothers or sisters related by blood…so why do I write about this? What do I know? I have never fighted with someone who’s around my age all the time in the same house…

The answer is simple…the “heart bond” is stronger. Because friends are the family you choose for yourself 🙂

My 2-year-old self made friends , friends with who I still hang out, laugh and cry with. Sure we have ups and downs…but hey it´s probably the longest relationship we will ever be in (blood related relationships as an exception).

More impressive not even baby me…and I mean fetus me… made friends. Technically our parents are besties and therefore we became acquaintances…but nobody can force you to become inseparable, that was entirely up to us.

There´s no such thing as a recipe…it´s a cliche but everyone is different and therefore we  can´t generalize and write a manual to become bff with someone. The only thing I dare to say is…(and this is another cliche) be yourself!!! How else could it work? There´s no point in faking a personality for the rest of your life.

The point this…I´ve grown up with this people, I can tell them everything. Girls I met in High School are more than friends to me…they´re my sisters. People with whom you can laugh, scream, cry, talk, hug, be mad and grumpy and so on and so forth…and they will aways be there for you. Of course I am young and things can change but it´s up to us not to let this happen… I strongly believe that some bonds can´t be broken.

I wish you my readers to find someone like this, to appreciate them if you have been lucky enough to find this kind of love…to cherish this remarkable ride.

I´m so grateful…Of course I´m still open to meet some new brothers and sisters 😉

As promised here is more “World Cup Fashion”  I decided to make a list of the teams that I considered were the best dressed or caused an impact in Brazil.

Enjoy 🙂

-GERMANY

GER1 GER2

A total of 130 personnel involved in the national team setup, from management, players to backroom staff will be attired in the German fashion label’s clothings. Casual wear including jacket-pants combinations, t-shirts and sweaters appropriate for the long travel from Germany to Brazil, as well as for relaxed media sessions assure that the team looks chic and comfortable as they mount their title challenge.

Accessories like travel duffel bags and suit luggage carriers from HUGO BOSS also feature in the essentials for the sartorial football player. (by senatus)

 

– MEXICO

The italian luxury fashion house Ermenegildo Zegna designed the made-to-measure suits for the mexican team. The logo is in fluorescent green and the fabric is top quality.

-ENGLAND

Designed by high street retailer Marks and Spencer, the suits, which will be worn by England manager Roy Hodgson and his players, come in charcoal grey and are packed with special design features.

These include an embroidered World Cup winners’ star on the inside envelope pocket, the England crest on the Autograph label and a red, white and blue sleeve and pocket lining. (by dailymail)

Scott Fyfe, M&S Head of Buying, said. “Made from lightweight British cloth and impeccably tailored, the suit is modern and relevant, representing the very best of British tailoring.”

– ITALY

Team Italy was by far the most impressive, wearing three-piece, navy colored suits by their official sponsor since 2006, Dolce & Gabbana (by ibtimes)

I´d say one of the most impressive.

At the airport the players arrived al dressed up!

World Cup

As many of you may have witnessed I went a little crazy this past month. I´m not usually this obsessed with soccer but…well once every four years can´t hurt right?

The thing with the World Cup is that it´s not only about soccer, is about having something to watch during the summer…jk…it´s about identity, the opportunity to love and support your team and your country…or also the country who has a special place in your heart.

In my case is Mexico and Germany… I was born in Mexico and have been in the german school 2/3 of my life…so you can imagine the World Cup I had… 🙂

The social media went crazy with the reactions of the mexican Coach Miguel Herrera…gif12 3

Some performances were Oscar worthy:

Why Ballet?

Renaissance…15th century…France…Ballet

An art? A sport?

DANCE.

Image

What we can learn from Ballet is not only to be more flexible or to be able to walk with our shoulders back….

We can learn to express ourselves, to come back and don´t give up…to ignore the pain.

I´ve never practice this beautiful art…which takes years and years of practice, you can see 2 years old dancing way better than I ever would! …but I´ve learned to appreciate it because I´ve  watched it since I was very little…Thanks mom! I finally got it and don´t sleep during  a performance anymore 😉

It´s not a girls sport though…the strength, the discipline, the will you need to master ballet is outrageous. Some dancers may be gay but they are also one of the most gorgeous and fit guys you´ll ever meet. Quite masculine…Image

The pain that the dancers have to overcome is quite brutal… have you ever seen dancers feet?

I invite you to appreciate these beautiful ART…go to the ballet and enjoy what you are watching, the strength,courage and perfection…

These are one of the top ballets around the world

The Mariinsky (Kirov ) Ballet
The Bolshoi Ballet
Paris Opera Ballet
The Royal Ballet
American Ballet Theater
Stuttgart Ballet
New York City Ballet
La Scala Theatre Ballet
Nederlands Dans Theater
National Ballet of Cuba

Image

I had the honor of watching the Mariinsky Ballet and I´m speechless…It´s a nice way of getting out of the routine and delight ourselves 🙂

Well-known stories such as the Nutcracker, Cinderella, Peter Pan, The Sleeping Beauty, A Midsummer Night Dream, Romeo and Juliet and of course Swan Lake are performed.

If you want to get more involved  and have some fun as well watch Dance Academy , a nice teen comedy-drama to watch at night on Netflix… a friend of mine who used to practice ballet recommended it so…there you go!

#BringBackOurGirls

Captura de pantalla 2014-05-15 a la(s) 21.28.10

 

Life as we know it can change in a second….

Near 200 girls were kidnapped last month, a real coverage was not made. However #BringBackOurGirls has gone viral and now celebrities, politicians, and real people are posting about this.

These girls are from Nigeria and a lot has been said about the fact, that if they were from Europe, from example, the news´d have coverage this instantly.

I think that despite our physical differences we are all human and we all have the right to be free and respected. The though of girls being kidnapped and probably being sold right now is unbearable…something must be done.

Many people say, that a simple photo posted by Michelle Obama or David Cameron is useless if action is not taken. Is an updated status worthy?

I think so…the influence of this personalities is HUGE! Information about them is spread worldwide, it makes people more conscious. This is mayor, because we all can do something to support the cause.

Of course I think that action must be taken by powerful countries…but these decisions are slow…uploading a picture that will create consciousness around the world takes less than a minute.

So please take a minute as well to appreciate your life and support any cause in order to make this a better world.

Love,

M.L

 

EXPECTATIONS

<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12222141/?claim=urp5w3s8qj9″>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

We all have expectations; big or small there they are….somewhere deep down ourselves. 
6a00e554e887238833015391174a6d970b2014-01-10-01-37-1-2A

We expect to be a better person, eat less chocolate and go to the gym more than once a month… These might actually be good for our health, but what about the ones who don´t let us sleep?

Am I GOOD enough?  Am I ever going to find Prince Charming? Am I COOL enough? Should I go to that super IN restaurant even though I don´t like fish and it´s the only thing I can eat there? Should I do a threesome to FIT in?

But really, what´s the definition of

-Good

-Prince Charming

-Cool

-lN

-Fit?

We are all different….Therefore we all should have different definitions of these subjective terms right? Are we trying to satisfy someone else´s expectations? Is peer pressure all over us? Have we been brainwashed into thinking that we actually want to find Snow Whites Prince?

I think we have…. We should take some time to find out what we really want…how we want to define things….get some time to ourselves and embrace our UNIQUENESS.

We don´t have to be disappointed if we don´t satisfy someone else’s expectations , not even if so not accomplish our own. Because if we did everything we could, then we should accept that some things needed to be rejected so than others, better ones, could come.

What´s the point of trying to be someone you are not? What´s the point of punishing yourself because you are not like the others?

I´ve experiences this so many times, I have lost the count. But I´ve come to realize that theres no point. So maybe I didn´t go to the super nice club last night, so maybe I was not invited to the party… did I really wanted to go with complete strangers? Not really….well maybe to the super nice club I´d have had a nice time, but isn´t it better to share your first with someone you love? …. This also should apply to having sex btw…

Anyway this may be easy to say but hard to do… believe me take your time to realize what YOU really want…it may take some time, but at the end of the day it will ALL BE WORTH IT. And you will realize why it did nit work out before….or so I´ve been told.                         We are all in this journey…and we´ll keep going 🙂

Love,

M.L
