As you may have seen on one of my recent Instagram posts, I have been going cra-zy over not being able to blog this past week. My job and my graduate school classes decided to get hectic at the same time. #MurphysLaw
My family has never been rich. I come from a middle/ sometimes middle-high class family who works really hard for all they have. Nevertheless, since my grandma from my mother's side has always loved spoiling me, I had a little experience with luxury as a teenager. I am completely sure I inherited my love for everything beauty and fashion from her!
I don't know if it's the fact that my entire career experience has revolved around jobs in which I have to be extra organized, but I love playing with Google Docs. I use them to keep track of my travel schedules, create shopping lists and even keep track of my budget. I know, it's a little insane, but it makes me feel so good about myself! Like I have my s**t together.
If you live in Puerto Rico, there's no way you haven't heard that El Nuevo Día is the biggest media outlet and news publication in the Island. As part of GFR Media, this daily newspaper has gained the respect of almost everyone in the Island for being the most complete in every aspect and being able to evolve with it's audience through decades and regardless of harsh economic situations.
After a night of browsing around the Sephora and Ulta websites, wondering if I really needed a $40 CC Cream and three new makeup brushes, I decided to finally checkout my order. But after I made my purchase and uploaded a picture to my Snapchat talking about how bad I felt about my decision, I asked myself this simple question: Why did I feel guilty about buying something I enjoy so much?
Remember Zahira Domenech? The destination wedding planner I interviewed a while back for a career profile? Well she's back in Ambinity, this time with her new business venture (because this #girlboss clearly can't have enough!), The Meaningful Growth Planner. A planner she created in a moment in her life where she needed to make some changes in her personal and professional life. She knew that she needed the energy to create an action plan that would bring positive results to her life and others.
If you follow me through social media you've maybe noticed that I've been kind of MIA these days. I have a slight tendency to shut down when I'm making big life decisions and right now my life has been quite hectic. I'm starting my masters degree in journalism in a week and have been house hunting with my fiancé for like a month now. So since this will be both him's and I's first homes, we've been researching and buying all the basics, like cutlery, bedding, pots and pans, etc. Basically everything that would be found on a wedding registry, since we've decided to postpone our wedding and once we have a registry it will be for a badass honeymoon, not pots and pans! Can you judge us? #Adulting
