Tiempo de Compartir

Beauty Fashion & Survival


No hay época más alegre que la Navidad y no hay mejor manera de disfrutarla que no sea compartiendo con familiares y amistades.

Es una época de celebraciones donde uno viste sus mejores galas para compartir y disfrutar de entretenidas charlas.

En esta ocasión quise invitar a dos queridas amigas, la diseñadora Gabriela Nevarez y a Tilky Morales, para juntas pasar un buen rato y disfrutar de un rico champagne, Moët & Chandon.


Cuando invito familia y amistades, me gusta ser la mejor anfitriona haciendo que se sientan a gusto y relajados.  Agazajo a mis invitados personalmente, de esta manera logro que  se sientan como en su propia casa.

La mesa impecablemente decorada con cristales y espejos utilizando los colores rojos y verdes que destacan la tradición y alegría de la época pero con un toque de distinción.



Brindar por la amistad, la salud, la prosperidad.  Dar gracias a Dios por todo lo que tenemos y esperar que el año nuevo llegue lleno de bendiciones.

Me siento muy feliz y realizada cuando mis invitados la pasan bien y  la conversación se hace íntima y amena.  Todo el ambiente contribuye a ello.


Una rica comida, un hermoso ambiente logró que tanto mis amigas como yo pasáramos una tarde agradable y agradecidas de poder disfrutarlo en salud y  camaradería.

Disfruto mucho de la buena mesa y de un buen champagne.

Por eso elijo Moët & Chandon.




Muchas gracias a la tienda Palacios por su impecable decoración y ambientación.

Blue as in Happy

I love the color blue.  It brings me peace so I wear it a lot.  I think it blends perfectly with most skin colors.  Blue as in sky, yes.  But also our crystalline waters in the Caribbean are blue. It strikes me as funny when people say they feel “blue” when they’re feeling down.  I’m blue when I feel relaxed, when I’m in love, when I’m in complete  harmony with the universe.  So blue it is for me. Blue as in peaceful. Blue as in calm. Blue as in happy.

I wish you blue.

A while ago I was interviewed by a very good friend and ex-co-worker and she asked me if life had been good to me.  “Life is life”, I answered, “and I have decided to make it good.”

On a day like today,  I want to give thanks for all my blessings.  Last year, I was at my extended American family’s home celebrating Thanksgiving feeling quite miserable.  It was my first Thanksgiving without my husband who had passed away only five months earlier after battling disease after disease for three consecutive years.  Ten years ago today, we had gotten married and had promised each other to be together “Till death do us part.”

But life is so fascinating and oh so unexpected if you only stop to contemplate all that surrounds you.  If you realize that we find ourselves in a temporary place and that we have the responsibility  to make the best of it.  This Thanksgiving I am happy because I decided to make life a happy place.  I took charge of my life, as I always do.

At this very moment I am surrounded by family, health, was given the opportunity to  combine all my skills to create a community of women who inspire me and I’ve looked up to them for advice.  Women who also might feel lonely either because they are going through an empty nest syndrome, have lost a loved one, have been left by their significant other (and maybe it was his loss)  and have welcomed me into their hearts and  have made me part of their lives.

I am very blessed.

I know life is very unpredictable.  I have been there.  Tomorrow is tomorrow and I will deal with what comes my way then.  I want you to do the same.  But now, today,  I  give thanks to God and to the fact that I have been given this unique and magnificent opportunity to connect with so many people in such a positive manner.

May God bless you all and may you also be aware of all the beauty and blessings that surround you.

 Open your eyes, open them wide and let that lovely light shine in.

This is our opportunity. We only have one life.

Let’s make it a memorable one.
