Made in Honduras

For Honduras, the past days has been crazy. 
Political troubles had occurred & we also have problems with the national police, it seems that day by day more divisions occur in the population. We also have  people fighting for their rights, the sums of money paid for the use of electricity are high, rains have caused damage & this government hasn't been what we all expected.
I consider myself as a positive person, a dreamer, someone who has the best interest for my BEAUTIFUL country, yes i said beautiful. And it makes me sad hearing (from citizens) that my country "no tiene arreglo" (has no fix) & we have nothing to be proud of.
I'm a lucky Honduran, i'm growing up at San Pedro Sula (the second important city of the country) & day by day i see how many citizens work their ass off to bring food, medicines and cloth to their beloved ones.

I've had received visitors on my blog from Turkey, Russia, USA, Canada, Egypt, Ecuador, Argentina, Mexico, Guatemala, Italy, France & too many others i can't remember right now. So, to all of you whether you are or not from Honduras, let me tell you we are poor, yes.. governments have stolen so much to the Estate. We are poor, BUT kind, helpful, workers, creatives & the best of my territory is THE INSANE AMOUNT OF BEAUTIFUL PLACES WE HAVE!
We are a country who "has it all": white sand beaches, archaeology, mountains, reserves, lakes, waterfalls & many more natural attractions. Let me show you part of them: 

1. Cayos Cochinos: are a group of two small islands (Cayo Menor and Cayo Mayor) and 13 small coral cays lying 19 miles northeast of La Ceiba on the northern Honduran coast.

I've been here & it's paradise, believe me.

2. Copán Ruinas: The Mayan city of Copan was a ceremonial center of government and the ancient Mayan civilization. Currently, Copan is an archaeological site located in the Department of Copán in western Honduras, near the border with Guatemala.

3. San Pedro Sula: known as the country's industrial capital. My lovely city it's located it the northwest of the country in the Sula Valley. We have one of the important  airports call "Ramón Villeda Morales".

This is the Olympic Stadium

This City Hall

"El Centro", where we have important avenues and streets. Major commercial movements occur here. In front of the park there's  the "Hotel Sula" & the Cathedral.

See how lovely the Cathedral looks at night? 
This was my wallpaper for several months hah =P

4. Lancetilla Botanical Garden:   located a few kilometers from Tela, is the second largest tropical botanical garden IN THE WORLD!

5. Pico Bonito National Park: located at the North of my country near La Ceiba, is the second largest national park in the country, the vegetation commences with tropical rain forest and broad leaf forests. It is famous for the largest peak of the "Nombre de Dios" mountain range; Pico Bonito itself is 2436 meters high.

6. Punta Sal: located near Tela, its name from the rocky point that juts out into the sea. It has approximately 35 linear miles of beach and close to 20 miles wide, covers793,818 km2 territorial

7. Islas de la Bahía (Bay Islands):  The top destination of my country, they are an archipelago consisting of three main islands and smaller ones in the Caribbean Sea: Roatán, Guanaja and Utila. They are surrounded by crystal clear waters, also in shades of blue, which is very common to see turquoise waters. The islands attract millions of tourists every year. Among the celebrities who are known to have been one of the islands are: Tiger Woods, Jaclyn Smith, Richard Gere, Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Hello dears! Since weeks ago I've been thinking i need to do some serious remodeling to my bedroom. The lack of like-myself-decoration is already reflected. I'm very very very disorganized, i need to have lots of recipients, boxes or big spaces to feel that i can actually get to order a place & i'm pretty sure many of you, as me, had visited blogs or websites trying to get motivated or inspired to try to do something different to bedrooms, bathrooms or living rooms. 

I have showed you before part of my jewelry & makeup which i try my best to keep everything in place but i really need to organize my shoes & purses as well. There's no corner of my room filled with purses or stacked shoes, ughh!
So, that's why lately i'm not looking forward to new things on my closet or acquisitions in general, i need to know what i have, appreciate it & throw away what i don't need or in the best of cases, giving them to someone who will need it more than me.

By now i have some ideas, like these:

I have a small collection of necklaces & it feels so wrong that i don't have a special place for them. Instead of , i have saved them on "jewelry boxes"
I want a rack like this but in wood. I would like to move from one place to order if i want to make future changes.

This is another beautiful choice for necklaces. And the best of it is that i have a lot of place on my walls!

Now, for shoes .. oh God, shoes... I don't love the idea of having them in boxes with printed pictures of them on the outside. I would like to have them at a specific space, letting know everyone about my lovely shoes, like this:

What about the dressing table? I want it to look clean & every little thing in order, like this:

See how good does the brushes looks? & the rose gives a sweet touch

Let's move to nail polish  & makeup. I found a really good idea for polish! Instead of having them sorted by colors or infinite lines , let's put them into a transparent container which it would give you more space.

Good news for me: i have an exactly recipient like this! 

As for makeup, brushes & fragrances: it's all about the products or tools you're using, how you want them to stay at one spot or the frequency you used them.

Until next time!

Bon week-end!

Tela + an update

Blame to my vacations, a new quarter at the university, homework & not feeling very inspired. Combined all of this & that's how you'll know what i've been to these days.
This was the first week of school for a new quarter, i'm taking 4 more classes & I can't believe there's only two more classes next year & that's it. I'll be graduated. I LOVE SAYING THAT!
Right now i'm thinking about the options for my practice (which consist of 3 months working at any of these: hotels, restaurants, travel agencies, airport, etc). I'm not that into office work & being part of the tourism industry that's something i can leave aside if I have luck.

Unfortunately the last year or so, my class schedule was the worst! I had free long hours that became forced visits to the library & that was gold blogging time.
Product of those hours was this picture. Actually, a whole season of black & white photographs with my (ridiculously bad) computer camera.

This is how an Honduran feeds at morning.
I think my mom felt sorry for me when my insomnia was due to study & that's why she cooked me typical breakfasts. 

A nice sky shoot outside of San Pedro Sula.

September marks the beginning of birthday season on my family. For my cousin's birthday we went to one of our favorite restaurant, Entre Pisco y Nazca. It's a Peruvian restaurant with a delicious menu! I have weakness for seafood , so I didn't lose the opportunity of order "Caracol a la plancha"

Yesterday I went to Tela with a few of my classmates & teachers to deliver the final report of an extensive work we done in collaboration with the Tourism Chamber of Tela. The work consisted of an inventory of tourism resources, tourist facilities & other services available at the city.
It was a little nostalgic for me because that trip was one of my final trips with classmates & teachers due i'm just a few months for graduation. 

After the reunion with the President of the chamber, we went to the beach before heading back to San Pedro Sula.
The day was cloudy & a few drops of rain fell. In resume, a relaxing day that included a boat ride & some jewelry shopping

Piña Colada <3 

My lunch. "Fish with garlic" 

Hope you're having a great weekend. Mine? with lots of homework & listening Michael Jackson's discography. 
Until next time!

Paris Fashion Week Part 2

Christian Dior

The first collection before the Galliano's era. Dior returned to its roots under Bill Gaytten's leadership giving us a very feminine collection. It was a goodbye to Galliano's spectacular shows, that was the biggest reason i loved watching Dior's  shows because i could expect everything from him. Anyway, i can't stop looking the silk & chiffon dresses with lots & lots of movement & tranparency. Reminds me of those gorgeous Hollywood actresses looking absolutely stunning & walking around Paris. It's good to see how the Fashion House is trying to leave behing the Galliano issue, we'll have to keep waiting until the french maison announces the new designer.


Chiffon dresses killed the PFW this time. Many designers presented their collections incorporating lovely pieces with it. Dark shades were selected on this occasion with beautiful short dresses with cleavage  & pencil skirts. 

Nina Ricci

This particular season doesn't have that many floral prints, but Petter Copping showed a vibrating, feminine & floral collection. I love how delicate the pieces look & how he played with silhouettes showing a powerful & glamorous female.

Isabel Marant

Is it me or Isabel Marant is THE chosen one for many blogger girls? And with this collection i already now how all of us are wishing to wear some pieces. It was young, refreshing, commercial & with lots of super models like Arizona M & Isabeli Fontana.
Sport jackets, jerseys, thick sweaters, everything you want to wear if you want to look like a bad girl

Have a great week!
-Much Love
