Hace un tiempo le estaba contando a mi amiga Lina el porqué no había contactado a los dueños de una tienda para mostrarle mi catálogo de productos y de repente me dice: “En la vida tú puedes dar excusas o resultados”
This month I turned 37, and I have to admit that I do not like that number at all! It is not as fun as 35, and it is dangerously close to 40 ... yes ... the dreaded 40 :D. But as my grandmother Olga used to said: "It is better to grow old than to die young" and she was right. I take my 37 laps to the Sun, and among the list of things I want to achieve in these next 365 days, besides accepting that I am no longer 25, it is to find my style and finally transform my closet. I have many years dreaming of having a “magazine closet” where everything is organized and coordinated. Can you imagine?
My children, on the other hand, have a gallery of approximately 20,000 photos. I am not exaggerating; there are 20,000 photos saved and cataloged in digital albums on my computer. Holidays, birthdays, family parties, school events or any day have an image to remember. However, the other day when I had to send a family photo to the school, I realized that there are few pictures of me with my kids. I almost have the same number of images with my parents that I have with my children.
The idea of start a business came into my life as it comes to the life of many moms. We look for ways to balance our professional role and motherhood. We want to be productive and creative while we can control our schedules and energy a little more. Certainly, there are weeks that we achieve that balance better than others, but what it is true is that it comes with transformation, empowerment and a lot of passion for what is done.
Last year my husband and I, playing a little with the nostalgia of the similarity between Carnaval and Halloween decided to dress like El Chavo and La Chilindrina, two characters from our childhood in Latin America. The costumes were a huge success among other immigrants parents, and the best part is that it was effortless to make with clothes that already were in our closet.
