Autumn|Winter Outfits with Wisteria Collection Jewelry

Every time I think about what to wear during the winter times I always think about three diferent styles that I absolute love. Here I´m going to show you my all time favorites. I want to say that I don´t have the source of all of the images but most of it is from Pinterest, some of the sources I will linked them. There are two columns: the first column is my outfit and the second one you can see inspirational images.

I styled the outfits with this amazing jewelry Collection called Wisteria from Brilliant Earth which I think is so pretty , elegant and classic, nature inspired pieces that are everlasting, wearable today and wearable in twenty years 🙂  The first outfit is black on black, head to toe…this is easy to accomplished, there are some many pretty thing out there. Something to remember in layering is to not use very baggy clothes underneath so you can stack different layers. The items I selected are a black beanie hat,18k white Gold Wisteria Diamond earrings, Terra Ring from Wisteria Collection, leather sleeves coat, black cashmere sweater, leather pants, big black purse (Céline) and black ankle boots or heel sneakers ( Isabel Marant)

This Second outfit is mainly soft colors, I love this combination of pastel colors. Fluffy comfy big textured sweaters are the best, I started with two pieces of the Wisteria Collection the plumeria Pendant and the Wisteria ring in white and rose Gold (I staked them to make it more interesting, by the way completely in loved with the rose gold one),  a soft pink long coat, A long cape type taupe sweater, a chunky knit sweater in oatmeal colors, cream jeans, and taupe or nude color suede ankle booties or oxfords. You can always add a big scarf.

For this I started with these gorgeous white gold Eucalyptus Diamond Earrings, a super warm and fluffy mustard scarf,  a super comfy green parka, a burgundy knit sweater or a open oatmeal color sweater, you can use a simple boyfriend gray t-shirt or a plaid shirt to make layering more interesting; a simple pair of skinny jeans and some ridding boots in caramel colors or taupe boots ( by  the way I own this pair of westies in taupes.

Gold Rimmed Natural Onyx or Agate Stone Tray

DIY-gold-rimmed-agate-tray

When I saw this picture on pinterest I thought it was so pretty and elegant and remembered that I saw a similar Agate stone in a bazaar that I went (not sure if its agate or onyx), so I went back and bought it.. My first thought was to create the gold rimmed with gold leaf, but it was a bit expensive because I only found it in packages and not just a couple of sheets, then I found this paint called Liquid Gold (Rodin brand at Lumen store only in México) and I though this could work. Fingers Crossed! And it did! So follow this super super easy steps and you´ll get a perfect tray. Enjoy!

ESPAÑOL>>> Cuando vi esta imagen en pinterest pensé que era súper bonita y elegante y recordé que había visto piedra tipo Ágata una en un bazar que visité, así que regresé a comprarla.(No estoy segura que sea ágata o Onyx) Mi primer pensamiento fue hacer el contorno con hoja de oro pero era muy caro porque solo la conseguí en paquetes de varias hojas, entonces vi esta pintura llamada Oro Liquido de marca Rodin en Lumen y pensé que funcionaria Cruce mis dedos! y así fue! Así que sigue estos super super sencillos pasos y tendrás una charolita perfecta.

materials2materials-agate

The first step is to clean very well your stone getting rid of any dust it might have, then with a fine brush apply the liquid gold all around the rimmed area carefully not to paint the flat surface of the stone. This type of paint dried so quickly so in a few minutes was ready!

El primer paso es lavar muy bien tu piedra para quitarle todo el polvo que pueda tener, después con un pincel fino aplica el Oro Liquido por todo el contorno de la piedra con cuidado de no pintar la parte plana de la piedra. Este tipo de pintura seco bastante rápido así que en minutos ya estaba lista! IMG_0337

 If the stone you found is too small you can make a pretty coaster! —– Si la piedra que encuentres es muy pequeña puedes hacer un bonito portavasos!

My Favorite Online Magazines

Adore Magazine

I use to buy a lot of magazines on stores and I loved to collect them, but I couldn´t store them anymore on my house because the lack of space, and also they are very expensive, specially here since most of the magazines that I like are in english, they are even more expensive for being foreign. So when I discover the world of online magazines I completely fall in love with them. First of all you can check them anywhere you want, whenever, and some of them are free, and second of all they are eco friendly because you skip the process of printing and shipping around the world, so thats a bonus! Here I leave you my favorite free online magazines and at the end of the post some that are not free but you can sneak peak a little ;). ..Please leave me a comment if you know any other online magazine that you love. Enjoy!

ESPAÑOL >> Solía comprar muchísimas revistas en las tiendas y me encantaba coleccionarlas pero ya no podía guardarlas en mi casa por falta de espacio y ademas porque son muy caras, en especial aquí como la mayoría son extranjeras salen carisimas. Así que cuando descubrí el mundo de las revistas online me enamore por completo. Primero que nada porque las puedes ver en donde sea y a cualquier hora y algunas de ellas son gratuitas, y en segundo lugar porque son eco friendly porque se evitar los gastos de imprimirlas en papel y los costos de enviarlas a todo el mundo, así que eso es un plus. Así que aquí les dejo mis revistas online favoritas y algunas que aparecen al final del post no son gratuitas pero te permiten ver un poco. 😉 Si conoces alguna revista online que te guste dejame un comentario! 🙂 Disfrutalo!

Making history

fendi-queretaro945508_491851320870643_1707544452_n

First of all I was to say that I live in Querétaro, México. Its a beautiful city most known by the “arcos” wich is a aqueduct (Picture shown below). In 2011 the word Querétaro was named the most beautiful word in the spanish language, it was an online contest where more than 33,ooo people voted, The word Querétaro was nominated by the famous mexican actor Gael García Bernal (FIY Sooo gorgeous). Yesteday I find out that Mäka and FENDI are making history with an amazing bag here in Querétaro my city.

español2      Primero que nada quiero decirles que yo vivo en Querétaro, México. Es una ciudad hermosa mas conocida por sus “arcos” que es una acueducto. (Muestro fotografía abajo). En el 2011 la palabra Querétaro fue nombrada la palabra mas hermosa del idioma español, hubo un concurso online donde mas de 33,000 personas votaron, la palabra fue nominada por el famoso actor mexicano Gael Garcia Bernal (…guapísimo). Ayer me entere que MäKA y FENDI están haciendo historia con una bolsa increíble aquí en Querétaro mi ciudad.

MäKA is a government project (DIF) which goal is to promote and support indigenous people from Amealco, Querétaro by buying them their embroideries and applying them on modern clothing with craft detailing. This project started on 2010 with 40 artisans and today it helps more than a thousand.

This is all because of the governor´s wife Sandra Albarrán de Calzada,which is the president of this Government sistem called DIF “National System of Integral Family Development” and also MäKA.

The italian brand Fendi for the first time in history is using materials that comes from outside the companys workshops, this purse contains materials created by the artesians with their famous geometric patterns.

This is a limited edition that it´s only going to be sold in Saks Fifth Avenue “Sante Fe” (México city) and I belive is only by request.

Mäka es un proyecto de gobierno por parte del DIF, que su principal meta es apoyar a los indígenas de Amelaco, Querétaro al comprarles sus bordados y aplicandolos en ropa moderna con detalles artesanales. Este proyecto inicio en el 2010 con 40 artesanas y ahora apoya a mas de 1000.

Todo esto gracias a la esposa de Gobernador Sandra Albarrán de Calzada que es Presidenta del DIF (Sistema nacional de Desarrollo integral de la familia.) y por supuesto el proyecto MäKA.

La marca italiana FENDI por primera vez en la historia estará utilizando materiales provenientes de fuera de sus talleres, esta bolsa contiene materiales creados por las artesanas con sus diseños geométricos.

Esta bolsa será de edición limitada. En venta en Sacks de Santa Fe al parecer solo podrá ser vendida bajo pedido.

Here is a gorgeous video about the MäKA Project.
