This last month has been so stressful. 2016 so far has definitely not been my best year (though it's very hard to beat 2015 with that trip to South Korea, right?). I lost my pet of 13 years Pina almost a month ago. It was one of the most painful experiences in my life, and yet I have zero regrets with how I handled everything for my furry friend. I gave her the best life she could ever have, and I stayed with her during her last moments. I decided to be with her during the process of the euthanasia, and I don't regret having decided to cremate her instead of just burying her, like we used to do with previous pets. Mom and I have dedicated a shelf on the corner of the house for her; we light a candle every night in her memory.
I love blocks of color and contrasts — and yeah, matching my lipstick with some item of clothing is something I'm currently obsessed with :P
This rather simple outfit is something I feel really comfortable in when I go to work. I don't like wearing blazers every day — such a look makes me feel like the typical office business woman and I don't like that very much! So this is the kind of outfit that makes me feel more like me and less like another person at work every day. Many people don't seem to understand how important it is to me to feel nice in the clothes I wear. It may seem like nonsense to some, but I noticed I tend to work better when I'm feeling good with my outfit.
A few weeks ago I got my order from Violetta Fabiani, a national cosmetics brand, one of my favorites in Argentina. I'm always satisfied with their products, specially their nail polishes line (they seem to know I'm addicted to them! LOL). It's a very trustworthy brand to me — I NEVER had a negative reaction while wearing their products (and my skin is suuuuper sensitive) and the prices are sometimes crazy considering the high quality of some of their products.
Today I bring you a review on a skin care brand that I discovered a few months ago in China Town. Its name is Veganis, a “sustainable skincare brand based on the principles of veganism of respect and promotion of animal rights. Therefore, their products do not get tested on animals nor contain ingredients of animal origin. Besides, Veganis products contain between their components organic vegetables, they’re free of paraben and suitable for people suffering from gluten intolerance.
Sometimes it's amazing how fast one's life can change. Many times, more than I would like to admit, we look down on our ability to deal with and overcome different situations in life; we miss out on experiences and changes that we know will benefit our lives just because we’re scared of failing. But if there’s something I learnt from reading self-development blogs all these years, is that it’s better to have failed trying to do something rather than ask yourself the rest of your life “what would have happened if…”.
2016 is definitely the time for new beginings. Not only did I start the blog once again, I'm also going to produce content for my newly born YouTube channel. I hope you enjoy this first video, which is about my Spring/Summer 2015/16 Shoes Collection and subscribe if you'd like to watch more in the future ♥.

Isn't it a great way to start a new blog by posting my recently new wardrobe? I'm so excited about this! My previous one was small and not very functional, hence why I had this custom made from my own design. I intended to have my shoes here as well, but I thought it'd be pretty unhygienic so I'm keeping them in a separate piece of furniture.
