Hating on summer

 Hat: Topshop / Jacket: Pull and Bear / Top: Forever21 / Bag: Pull and Bear / Skirt: Thrifted / Shoes: Wanderlust

I must admit that I'm not a big fan of this daisy print, I've seen it all over everywhere and everyone so that's probably why.  I found this top from Forever21 to be less annoying because the flowers seemed less notorious unlike the Motel one.  Moving on, I've been trying to use color because of summer but I hate how predictable that is, I mean, floral prints and bright colors? Not very original.  This is the outfit I came up with for Guatemalan crazy weather, love it or hate it.

Memories Can't Wait

Have you guys ever heard of Trend Vision? Well I hadn't up until now. Turns out it's a lot like Wonderland. I started as a beauty blogger so I really enjoyed the show Talkin’Heads, a local salon, had prepared in ordered to select their contestants for The Wella Trend Vision in Germany. It was extremely exciting, the energy was really intense and to be quite honest I had never seen so much creativity when it came to makeup and hairstyles! Take a look
All I can say is that I feel really happy about the stylists from Talkin’Heads, they seemed like such an amazing and talented team. I wish them all the best!

Ch-Ch-Changes

I feel like it's been ages since my last post! I am terrible at blogging whenever a new change aproaches my way. I happened to be lucky enough to get a fashion related job in PR and I'm moving into a new apartment! 
Now that I'm starting to settle down again I figured I should share some of the things I've been doing lately.  A local jewelry shop. C'Santos, celebrated their 4 year aniversary yesterday and it was so wonderful! There were deserts that looked and tasted like they came out of a fabulous french movie, very Marie Antoinette.  The entire store had 40% off and I visited their workshop which made the entire event completely interesting and memorable, but enough chit-chat pictures will speak for themselves!

Brie and Nutella Grilled Cheese

He estado bajo mucha presión últimamente, ya que he tenido varias oportunidades en mi trabajo. Suelo lidear con ello con la comida, mi refacción favorita siempre han sido los emparedados.  Trato de inventarme nuevas combinaciones y encontré esta hace algún tiempo.  Todos aman la Nutella (excepto yo porque comí demasiada de pequeña) pero se ha vuelto un poco monótona y aburrida, me pareció muy curioso cómo puede cambiar esto con tan solo agregar unos cuantos ingredientes.  Van a necesitar:
- Mantequilla
- Queso Brie
- Banano
- Nutella
- Pan
¡Eso es todo!

Junta tus ingredientes y empieza a untar Nutella en el interior del pan.  Luego coloca mantequilla en el lado de afuera.  Encima de la nutella coloca rodajas de banano y el queso Brie.
Ahora viene la parte más importante que es tostar el pan.  Yo utilicé un sartén a fuego lento.
Cocina hasta que  el pan empiece a tornar un color dorado y el queso se haya derretido, sírvelo inmediatamente ¡Listo!

Brie and Nutella Grilled Cheese

I have been under a lot of pressure at work, a lot of opportunities have been just showing up at my door and even though I feel extremely excited I often find my self kinda lost and in need of... Comfort food! 
Sandwiches are my favorite snack, I always try to come up with new combinations and I recently found this recipe (can't remember where).  Everyone loves Nutella (except me, had too much as a child) but it's getting kinda old isn't it? I found this combination to be more fun and delicious.  You will need:
- Butter
- Brie
- A banana
- Nutella
- Bread
That's it!

So gather your ingredients and begin spreading nutella on the inner side of your bread and butter on the outside.  Top the nutella with brie and a few slices of banana.  
Now, here comes the most important part, the grilling! I used a skillet on medium low heat. 
Cook until the bread begins to look kinda golden and the cheese is fully melted, serve immediately!
