Me at 29…

So not sure who knows this or not but I am a student. I am not your “traditional” student between the ages of 18-23. I am turning 30 years old this June and will be graduating next May. Returning to school has been a few things to me. It has been challenging, sacrificing time away from family, and rewarding. Being a part of New York University has allowed me some really great opportunities and has taught me so much about myself in just the short time I have been there. I would like to share my tips to all those non- traditional student returning to school. These of course are things that I have personally found helpful in my own experience and are based on my personal opinions.

 

  • Communication: One of the first things I did when making the choice of going back to school was communicating with my spouse. I have been dating my fiancé for 7 years now and been living together with him and my son for about 4 years. My fiancé was very supportive in my decision and was actually a big part of making my decision easier to go back and finish school. I think it is important for people to have communication with either their significant other, parent or anyone in their group of circle that they trust to talk with. Having a really good support system and someone that you can talk to about your goals and passions with is very important. Having a full- time job, a son and a being in a committed relationship was already a lot of work. Dedicating my time as a student was just another thing to juggle which leads into my next bullet point.
  • Dedication: If you are planning on going back to school, I think it is important to realize the time and dedication it takes to be an adult student. I will always be grateful for my other half in making it possible to become a part- time employee and a full- time student. I know not everyone may be able to do that and there are a lot of people who go to school part- time/ work full- time or work full- time and be a  full- time student as well and do great. I made that specific choice for myself because I wanted to make sure I would still have time to spend with my son and give my family the attention they deserved. Going to a school like NYU or any university for that matter requires so much more dedication. Taking four or five classes at a time can be very stressful and challenging at the same time. GPA is something that becomes very important for employers when hiring new students. If you are looking to be in a specific industry, I would also advise to look at internships in those fields to get an idea of what types of GPAs they are looking for in their candidates.
  • Network: One of the main reasons I chose to go from an online university to a traditional campus university was this specific thing. Having worked in Corporate America for almost 10 years, I know just how important it is to network. As a student, it can be a bit easier to build a network if you have a plan. This is not to say that you cannot find promotion or networking events in a company but it is much more difficult in a major corporation with hundreds of employees all scattered in different departments. Networking at a campus can be easy if you make time to become involved. Signing up for newsletters would be the easiest way for people who cannot afford the time to be on campus as much. This will keep you informed about the events that the campus is having and that way you can pick, choose, and plan accordingly. Of course, you many not be able to attend all events but more often than not, you can always find a time to go to an event. Once you go to a few events, you may even begin to see the same faces because, just like you and me, they are too trying to expand their network and meet new people.
  • Don’t be shy: By this I mean, do not be shy to use all resources that the school provides. I mean ALL! (You are paying to attend your school so you should use the resources they provide) For example, my school has a career center, career fairs, exclusive events only for students (Ted Talks, Important speakers & guest, student discounts, and much more), free wifi ( I mean HELLO, who wants to use their own data!!), etc.. you get the point. I have personally used my career center many times for different things. I have gone to employer presentations (basically an employer, lets say NBC, comes and speaks to students about potential employment or internships and usually provides special links to apply to), had them review and fix my resume, applied for programs that I didn’t think I would get into but did anyways. If you are not shy about using the resources that the school provides for its students, you will most likely miss out on great opportunities. I was actually able to go with 30 other students to Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. and meet with members of Congress. I mean c’mon, if I had not signed up for the newsletters, not applied for the trip to D.C. I would have missed out on that great experience and not have built a connection with those individuals.
  • Have Fun: I can honestly say, that as stressful as I may get about my grades and classes at times, I absolutely love being a student again. I don’t know if I appreciate it more because I am much more mature and have gained life and work experience or if its just because I am that much of a nerd. I love the opportunities that I can get through being a student, making new friends, learning about things that I may have taken for granted before, and much more. I recently became the Social Media Chair for my particular school at NYU (you know NYU has A LOT of schools), and I cannot wait to start my role and being involved in that. I will basically gain knowledge, experience and work with others in marketing (which is my major btw) doing what I basically do on my personal time which is being on social media. Of course with a bit more of an agenda, but still. Again, if I didn’t make time to become more involved in school, find ways to be involved and network, I probably would have never gotten this role. Just enjoy it and have fun.

At the end of the day, you define the level of your own success by what you do and how hard you work towards achieving your goals. My version of success may be different from others and vice versa. I hope my own experience and opinion was helpful in anyway to anyone who may have read this. Its 1am and I have to be at work at 8am tomorrow so I should go to sleep. Until next post….

Stepping into your dream dress

Well this past weekend I went wedding shopping and it was an experience that I will forever cherish. The day started off with a little rough start. Living here in New York, if your not running late to an appointment… well that would almost be a miracle in itself. Arriving at our first bridal shop I was a little disappointed. Their website clearly stated no appointments were necessary but when we arrived ( 30 minutes after they opened the doors) there was a 2 hour wait to see a consultant. I understand that if this is how they run their business, this should be stated on their website. That way when people like me who have never had a bridal shop experience show up and then are told to wait don’t get bummed out. Well as most brides, I had other confirmed appointments set up for the day so with much sadness we had to leave before even getting to try on any dresses. The next store we went to was a little better. We were a bit early to this location and they were able to help us promptly. The first question they ask you is “When is the wedding and what style do you like.” Of course I had no clue what I really liked until I began to trying them on. Our consultant was a very nice lady but honestly she was not listening to my wants. I think that she was so on guard and trying to protect me from my entourage that she was making us all a little uncomfortable. I was able to find a decent dress at this store. I use the word decent because although it was a nice dress and it had components of which I was looking for, it was clear that my search was not done. I do want to be clear that when I decided to go on this first wedding gown search, I was not planning on finding my dress. The point of this day was to find the style that best suited my figure, check out prices of dresses that I did like and just get to spend time with the ladies that I had invited.

After the second appointment we have one final bridal shop to visit before we break for lunch. We arrive at the third location which is basically a little hole in the wall boutique. From the outside you would never imagine the treasure that is located inside. The walls are blue Tiffany colored walls with cream colored sofa couches located in each end. At the end of one wall near the dressing rooms is a vintage look vanity holding veils, headbands and sparkly accessories. The selection of dresses is no where nearly as much as the last two stores we had just come from. I kind of started to get nervous because I feel like I have stepped into a store that may be over my budget. The quality of these dresses are basically screaming from the hangers they hang on. When we get there, there is only one other bride in the store and two consultants, the owner and the assistant. They greet us quickly and tell us to take a seat. “Who’s the Bride?” One of them asks and everyone points to me. She sits me down on the couch and she sits down “Indian style” on the floor directly in front of me asking me stuff about my wedding, my budget, what I like and what I don’t like. About 10 minutes being at this boutique the owner says she has something that I just may be looking for and directs me to the dressing room. I look at the dress she is bringing over on the hanger and it’s almost like I begin to blush. Inside the dressing room she is explaining how she will dress me and asks which dress I’d like to start with. I immediately point at the dress that made me blush. We wiggle my big hips and butt into the dress and to my surprise, the dress fits perfectly with some minor adjustments. This is a major relief because all the dresses would slide perfectly from my head down until it reached my hip area. From the moment she finished zipping my back I can feel the difference of this dress versus all the other dresses that have been on me earlier in the day. We walk out to the main area and everyone is literally in awe at this dress. I stand on the little platform in the middle of the room and can’t stop starring at this dress. Someone, I can’t remember who, brings over a veil and a small jewel incrusted headband and puts it on me. At that moment, tears begin to roll down my cheeks and I have my moment of realization. Shit I’m getting married and this is really happening! Everyone in my entourage is teary eyed, even the owner and the assistant. I never imagined that on the first day of wedding gown shopping I would find this dress that I had dreamed about since I was a little girl. (There was that slight stage in my life in which I didn’t want to get married, but that was quickly dismissed when I fell deeper in love with my fiancé) So what I would recommend anyone shopping for their wedding dress is to not settle for the dress that you like. Stepping into your dream dress is going to be a moment and feeling like you’ve never felt before. The next few pictures are a few of the dresses that didn’t make the cut. RIP dresses lol

I’m back!

Oh my gosh! I feel like I have been gone forever. Every day I think to myself, how I need to post something on my blog and something comes up. Let me tell you guys what I have been up to this month.

First of all, does anyone else feel like the month of March has lasted too long? I feel as if we have been in this month for too long. So this past weekend, I realized that I had not signed up for the deadline of financial aid through my university. I unfortunately will not be able to start my new class until April 19!!

BUMMER… NO SCHOOL FOR ALMOST AN ENTIRE MONTH!!

So anyways, I figured this would be a perfect time where I can focus and write a little more on my blog. I am literally running out of things to do when I get home because I have not had this much free time in about 2 years!

This month, I decided to sign up for Birchbox. I finally got the box today and was like….

I mean, the sample sizes were EXTREMELY small. I guess I am more used to the Ipsy sample size but I will keep the monthly membership for a little while longer. If I am still not satisfied with the products, I will just cancel it. I have also been doing a lot of shopping because of my spring break trip to… drum roll please*

International Women’s Day

How was everyone’s day today. I heard it was international women’s day today and thought it would be a great topic to blog about today. I have not really had time to write any blogs lately with recent projects at school and working a full time job. It can become a little overwhelming at times, especially since I am also a mother to a 9 year old and also have a boyfriend. With all that said and done, honestly do not think I would have it any other way. I think it is great that we have a day to officially celebrate all the women around the world. It was a day that was created to promote the achievements of women from  all around the world. I want to talk about something in specific in this post that was recently in the media. I am sure we are all aware of who Kim Kardashian is and what she is most known for. Recently there has been an uproar with a nude selfie that was posted on her social media websites. Now although this particular selfie was not completely nude since she blocked certain parts of her body with black strips, I found the image to be quite absurd. I don’t usually care what celebrities post because I believe to each their own. I do understand that Kim Kardashian has built a brand, an image and her source of income is this beauty and body that she has portrayed to her fans as positive body image. What bothers me so much when I see celebrities doing this is when I see articles written about this behavior being represented as positive body image. I personally do not think that flaunting your body by showing every single angle and body part is promoting positive behaviors for women to think positively about their bodies. What ever happened to having respect for yourself as a woman? What ever happened for having some form of dignity towards yourself as a woman? I am not a very religious person and tend to view myself as a very liberal woman but when I see women doing this for business purposes (because at the end of the day lets all be very clear, Kim Kardashian has made her money by selling her body image) and then promoting it as building positive body image it just disappoints me really. I hope to have a daughter one day and cannot imagine how I would explain to her if she were to have read the article I read today stating that posting a nude image of yourself to the world promotes positive body image. I think that there are plenty of women in this world today that have done great for women advancement and have paved the path for many future women generations to come. So that was my rant for today. I hope all you ladies had a great day today and again Happy:

Latinas at the Oscars

So for the past few months, I am sure we all heard of the lack of diversity at the Oscars not only this year but just in general. I am not one who likes to focus on the negative but am also a realistic person so with that said, lets talk some fashion. I want to take a little look at the history of the Latinos that have been able to represent our culture at the Oscars, but most importantly, WHAT THEY WORE!! In this post, I will post about the woman (no discrimination gentleman) it’s just that I prefer to look at fancy dresses instead of black suits.  Lets get right into it:

 

ACTRESS SALMA HAYEK ARRIVES AT 75TH ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS.

In 2003, Mexican actress Salma Hayek wore a Carolina Herrera gown for her leading role nomination in “Frida”. Salma to me is the prime example of the beauty of Mexican women and it clearly represents that in her elegance and classiness of a dress. Not only did Salma represent for Mexicans everywhere but she also brought along the Venezuelan- American fashion designer to the red carpet.

Rita Moreno shown above is a Puerto Rican actress wearing a dress designed by Filipino Fashion designer Jose “Pitoy” Moreno. In 1961, Rita won her nomination of best supporting actress in her role in “West Side Story”.

Penelope Cruz, a Spaniard actress got her Oscar in 2007 for her best supporting actress role in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”. Here she is wearing an amazing colored and perfectly gown for the occasion gown designed by Atelier Versace.

Catalina Sandino Moreno is a Colombian actress nominated in 2004 for her Best Actress role in “Maria Full of Grace”. She is wearing Roberto Cavalli for her 2004 Oscar nomination.

So there are a couple of other ladies to mention Adriana Barraza, Katy Jurado, Norma Aleandro, Berenice Bejo, Pilar Revuelta and Beatrice De Alba who have all been nominated in the past. The ladies above were my top dress picks for past red carpet moments. I can’t wait to see what the red carpet brings in 2016.

Affordable Gift Ideas for Him

So today’s post, I want to talk about Valentine’s Day. I mean I know many people always talk about how it is just a day that was made to spend money and buy things. This may be true and in most cases, people probably are over spending. So I decided to make a list of  items on what I consider affordable and nice gifts. A lot of times, there will be articles that I read about “affordable” gifts for him or her and then you have these $500+ items on the lists. Like seriously… I know like many people, I have bills to pay so if I can find an gift for an affordable price, I will definitely go for the deal.

So lets take a look at some nice gifts for him. Him can be a boyfriend, husband or just a crush that you have on a guy. I personally love gifting watches. I think I have given my boyfriend all of his watches, with the exception of maybe 1 of them. I love love love, Fossil. If you are looking for a good reliable watch to gift, I would look into these. Some cool perks about Fossil is that they replace your battery usually at no fee if it dies. Right now they have an embossing/engraving promo going on until February 5. They will do this for FREE people. This just gives it that extra personal touch to that loved one. Some of my favorite looks right now are:

FS5150_main
GRANT CHRONOGRAPH DARK BROWN LEATHER WATCH $145
FS4835_main
GRANT CHRONOGRAPH NAVY LEATHER WATCH $135
ME3104_main
TOWNSMAN AUTOMATIC BLACK LEATHER WATCH $195

So the next item I would like to include as a gift idea for him is something that I have always wanted myself: a classic messenger bag. I am in love with those things and envy that statement piece that men get to wear with their fitted suites (walking down Wall Street).

These are a couple of bags that I found that would go great for any business meeting, a day at the office or heading off to class.

Cole Haan Leather Messenger Bag $144.99

Kenneth Cole Reaction Come Bag Soon $99.99

My last suggestion for a gift are some amazing statement sunnies! Spring is the next season on the agenda and what better way then to gift your man with the perfect shades! Top picks for me below:

So these are just some thoughts to get your mind rolling on good Valentine’s Day gifts for you sweetie. I feel like sometimes women think Valentine’s Day is all about them but we can make our men feel worthy of our love that day too! Thanks for visiting my page and let me know if you liked any of the gift ideas.

Is it too late for this…?

Well hello everybody… I hope you guys survived the snowzilla storm we had. I think we had like a record breaking snow storm here in NYC with something like 30 inches of snow. Well… I can say I was definitely not expecting that much snow. I am just glad it was during the weekend and not during the work week. It would have made it that much more miserable to have that much snow trying to catch the subway and all. So as you may or may not know, I started this blog a couple of months ago, with the intentions to learn more about digital marketing, better my writing skills and just for the pleasure of writing about beauty and fashion. Well so far, these past few months I have learned a lot and I didn’t expect that I would actually be learning this much so soon. I’ve also started a Youtube channel and as I start this whole social media life, I’ve learned the importance of having a vision or a statement or whatever you’d like to call it (oh and proofreading your writing before you post it hahaha). Anyways, I got the idea from a youtube channel called: byregina.com . She has a lot of cool videos that are very informative and talk about how to build your brand. By no means am I saying that I am looking to make this a full time job or anything like that buuuuuuuuuuuut, if it happens.. HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE? (LOL)

So the topic of conversation today will be the 3+3 Statements to define your blog:

Three things your blog will stand for this year?

  1. Beauty and Fashion- anything that has to do with this topic will be first
  2. Family & Friends- these people are part of my life so it just makes sense to include them
  3. No Judgement- I’m not perfect at this so I am learning as I go

Three promises your making to your blog community?

  1. I promise to have fun on this blog. I am not talking about serious matters here, we get enough of that to go around in the real world. This is where I want to have fun and talk about things that make me smile =)
  2. I promise to be honest on this platform. I will write about things that interest me or if any readers have any suggestions or topics for me to write about, I would be willing to do that as well.
  3. I promise to be diverse. I live in NYC, one of the most diverse cities in the world. I think we could all use a little more diversity in our lives.

So there we have it. I guess I could have written this post earlier this month to start the year off right. Well as I mentioned above, I am learning as I go. I also wanted to ask you guys for some suggestions. What do you guys want to hear about or learn about. My previous posts have been of famous ladies of our past and their fashion style. Any suggestions or topics that may interest you in learning?

ps. For those of you that don’t know what Sinceramente means, it means Sincerely. =)

 

Selena Quintanilla

So I had mentioned about a month ago that I wanted to write about Selena and her iconic fashion input into our world. I think that anyone growing up in Texas in the 90’s must have been in love with Selena. Her music, her personality and her amazing wardrobe outfits she would put on to give a show is what she is known for. I remember trying to sing like Selena with my younger sister when we were put to do chores around our house. Remember those big home theater players that looked like this:

Audio/Video System

Yea I used to love that thing! (Lol) So in case you are looking to update your system, there you go. So back to Selena, I recently read an article that M.A.C. is going to be honoring Selena in 2016 by introducing a limited edition product line in her name. All of her fans would definitely be proud to see her still being remembered today, almost 20 years after her unfortunate death.

Selena was most known for being Queen of Tejano Music. During her time as a famous singer, Selena was often criticized from everything to not being “Mexican” enough to be a part of the Mexican culture to being one to “sexy” for her choice of outfits on stage. She was known as the “Tejano Madonna”

Selena:

Here are some really cool facts that I did not know about Selena until I researched on her a little:

Selena was a spokesperson for Coca-Cola from 1989 till the time of her death

selenacoke4
looooving the Texas hair

Selena was 5’6″ in height (She was taller than me…!!)

Selena designed all of her stage outfits herself (fashion designer in the making)

I honestly do not think I have met one person in my life that didn’t like Selena. She was just one of those people in life that you can’t dislike. Her music, beauty and style will continue to live in people’s hearts because she left this earth too soon. So I can’t wait until M.A.C. introduces her new line so that I can run and get some stuff!

Hola y buenas tardes a todos los que están aquí en mi pagina. Hace un mes, mencione que quiera escribir sobre la cantante Selena Quintanilla. Pienso que igual que yo, en el tiempo de los 90’s cualquier persona viviendo en Texas en es tiempo estaba fascinada con Selena. La música, su personalidad y su estilo de vestir en el escenario era lo que hacia uno reconocerla. Me acuerdo de chiquita cuando mi mama nos hacia limpiar en la casa, yo y mi hermana nos gustaba cantar con la música a todo volumen en esas maquinas de música. Se acuerdan… (lol)?

Estéreo de los 90’s

Ahi como amaba esa maquina.. jajajajaja!  So si están buscando algo similar, ahi les puse el link por Amazon. Bueno.. continuemos con el tema de Selena. Lei recienmente un articulo que hablaba sobre la compañia M.A.C. estaría haciendo en el año 2016 una linia de maquillaje en memoria de Selena. Supongo que todas la fanáticas de Selena estarán orgullosas de que ella esta aun después de 20 años de fallecida, en la memoria de todos.

Selena era conocida como la Reina de la Musica Tejana. Durante la época de Selena, ella fue criticada por cosas como no ser “Mexicana” para la comunidad Mexicana y otras cosas como su estilo de vestir por ser muy sexi. Su forma de vestir le puso el apodo de la “Madonna Tejana”

Holiday Time

So it is January 3rd, 2016 and this is officially my first blog post this year. I really didn’t have time to post anything due to a few things. I got lazy, I was busy and then I got sick. Being sick during the holidays has got to be the worst thing ever. Having to be around all the people and the food and you just sit there and slowly die. (Ok maybe that is just a bit much) During Christmas, the weather in NYC was far from being what the normal weather is like. Christmas Eve my wardrobe was a Christmas Tee from Areopostatle during the day which I found for like 7 dollars!  I wore some sparkly pants that I got from H&M with black silk shirt and paired them with black classic Louboutins.

One of the more exciting events I was able to attend was the Jacqueline De Ribes exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum. One of the fashion icons of the twentieth century was known as a muse to most couture fashion designers. If you are interested in seeing her exhibit and some fabulous designs, I would definitely recommend you stop by this exhibit before it ends. The Art of Style will be open to museum guests until February 21, 2016.

Ok… I’m trying to sit here and think of what else my holidays consisted of…? Oh I know… the time we celebrated my boyfriend’s cousins birthday party! That was so much fun and it was absolutely fun to get dressed up for where we decided to go. Lets just say that I was able to put on my red lipstick and dance without a care in the world that night!

I wore my black basic tee underneath an amazing burgundy leather jacket I borrowed from my boyfriends aunt. (BTW, her closet is to die for!!) My scarf was basically a steal from H&M. My jeans that I didn’t get a good picture of were some 80’s style jeans. I love those jeans so I am sure you guys will get to see them in another post.

I ended my year spending time with my Aunt in Bowie, Maryland. She lives in the suburbs of Maryland and just about 30 minutes away from Washington D.C. By the time I got here, I was really sick and ready to end the year. I decided not to get dressed up this year and roll in the new year in my favorite silk pajamas.

Well, I think this blog has lasted enough and I will see you guys soon. Hope you enjoyed my little adventure during the holidays with me and I look forward to having a successful blogging year.
