Halloween Special: Maleficient Horns


Tomorrow is Halloween and some of you probably don’t have a costume yet, and that’s where I’ll save your night lol. I got you a quick, easy and great tutorial for a halloween accesory inspired in one of my favorite disney movies of 2014: Maleficient. You are probably thinking where will I get a maleficient costume for tomorrow? Even though it seems like a very elaborated costume, you can pull it off with your own clothes and some materials – that you probably need to get, but you’ll find them at any store. First you’ll need a maxi long sleeve black dress which I think every girl has or at least you mom has one. Or you can get a cheap one at any trift shop or ask your friends, everyone has been Morticia once lol. And now what? Easy! You just need the horns now! And that’s exactly what I’ll show you in this tutorial :)

You’ll need:

- An old headband 

- Black electric tape

- Crepe paper

- Silicone glue

- Rope/cord or a thick wire

- Black ribbon (just in case your headband is not black)

kkk

1. First you need to cut off two pieces of rope the length you want your horns to be. You can shape the cord before you cut it to make sure they are long enough or you can shape them until you have cut them.

kkk-2

2. Wrap the cord with the crepe paper.

kkk-3

kkk-4

3. Using your black electric tape, wrap the entire horn

kkk-7

4. Now cover your headband with the black ribbon using sillicone glue

kkk-8

5. And finally, using your sillicone glue again, paste the horns into the black headband, wait until the glue dries and you’ll have your maleficient horns ready to wear!

Easy right? I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and you are more than ready to become maleficient for halloween this year! See you guys soon and Happy Halloween!

Neutral Florals


Sometimes we think that combining black and white for your ootd is so last year, but NO! You can still do it but keeping it stylish. One thing about these two colors is that they will always look good together and If you wear the right accesories/patterns, you’ll never look old-fashioned. For todays look I thought about adding a pop of yellow or green but then I realized, why not just go with the classic black and white without adding any other color? The floral pattern gives a fresh aspect to the whole B&W outfit and makes it look juvenile and stylish. The headband on the other hand, presents a more relaxed but classy look, and at the end my neutral ootd doesn’t look like the usual black and white outfit, it looks more stylish and fun to wear!

Trick or Treat Special: Owl Mask


Welcome back everyone! I’m sorry I was away for almost a week but I’m back now and ready to post more ideas for you! Mommies, I told you I was going to help with your kids costume and I hope this post will make that promise happen lol. I thought about working on an accesory and not the whole costume, because sometimes accesories can turn you in any character you want. I picked an owl because they are very trendy right now, not only for teens and yound adults but also for kids. Every little thing from a notebook to a backpack comes with owls. However, you can pick your kids’ favorite animal because the whole point is being whoever/whatever you want for halloween! So let your child decide. This tutorial is very simple so I really hope you enjoy it and lets begin!

You’ll need:

Foamy paper/ Foamy towel paper (4)

Scissors 

Silicone glue

Elastic ribbon

kkk-3

1. Print out two copies of your owl’s mask template

kkk-4

2. Cut the two circles from one of the templates

kkk-5

3. Use the templates to cut the mask and eyes on the foamy paper (I chose the colors below but you are free to choose your kids favorite colors)

kkk-6

4. Make holes in the big and small circles for the eyes and also in the owl’s mask, and use the sillicone glue to put everything together. Cut a little triangle from the orange foamy towel paper for the owl’s mouth and add it to the mask.

kkk-7

kkk-8

5. Using tiny scissors, make two holes at the endings of your mask and tie an elastic ribbon on them

kkk-12

And now you are ready to get some candies!!! Trick or treat?!

Fall just came in here!


Hello!
This time I decided to go for a walk. Yes, in NYC! Weather is perfect for wearing your favorite boots, jacket and scarves :) The thing about combat boots is that you can wear them for both hot and cold climates and that is awesome because they become super useful! I love black combat boots because they match with everything, but when deciding which color was best, I picked beige. The reason for my choice was because I loved how they looked with my favorite shorts and also I wanted something different. Black is a great choice too, I still want them in black, but I’ll probably get a different style. My scarf is 100% handmade in Costa Rica, I got it at S&P crochet. They have the greatest styles for both adults and children. If you wanna get a personalized hand-made scarf or hat contact the store and I’m sure they’ll be happy to do it! (The store’s link is on the bottom right side of the blog) Please feel free to ask questions on the comments box below, I’ll be happy to answer them! See you soon!

Polka Dot & Leather on ND 2014


This weekend was exciting and exhausting lol. One of the major events of the fashion industry in Nicaragua took place this past weekend: Nicaragua Diseña (ND) – a fashion show presenting a group of talented nicaraguan designers and their collections. I told you a little bit about this event on my post about Carlos Aleman – the fashion designer starring on my second edition of the dudes fashion section. His collection Folklora was just as I predicted and even better, in fact, all the designers did an amazing job with every single piece of cloth they worked on. During the runways, there was also a fair with stores selling nicaraguan products only. For this event, I decided to go with a two-piece polka dot dress. Something that I loved about this dress was the high neck top because it makes the dress look different than other two-piece dresses similar to this style. I wore strappy leather heels that are so IN right now, and the best part is how comfy they are! If you are attending extended events you better go with comfy shoes. And finally, to complete my outfit I used a leather electric blue clutch made in Nicaragua. I thought this color would match better with my outfit and I definitely loved the outcome. I hope you guys liked this look and I invite you to come to ND next year because it gets so much better every year! Have an amazing monday :)

His & Her Style: Matching Summer OOTDS


Hi guys! I hope you liked my previous post on dudes fashion with Gerardo Sanchez as my special guest. Remember I told you he was coming back??? Well, today I got you more of him with a new outfit! We decided to work together on how to match outfits. Whenever you hear that phrase “matching outfits” you automatically think: they will wear the same shirt or the same pattern or the exact same outfit. Well, sometimes matching outfits doesn’t mean wearing identical garments, but wearing similar styles. And that’s exactly what we felt like doing on todays post! Our outfits were perfect for a relaxing day, drinking coconut water and enjoying nature! Get ideas for a chill and fresh outfit for this weekend and enjoy it!!!

Actor’s Breeze Style


Hello guys! I know September was a great month but I bet October will be even better! As you know, I always have a new face for the first day of the month on my dudes fashion section and today is no exception. My special guest is a Nicaraguan actor/producer and lawyer. His name is Gerardo Sanchez and I had the honor to have him for today’s post. Gerardo went to law school and currently works at an ONG as an environmental lawyer, but everyone knows him better for his career as an actor and producer. He started in the T.V. industry with reality shows such as “Aventados” in 2007, and “RutaAlterna” in 2012, then he moved to the big screen with a movie produced by him, named “Mojados” and he just finished his second movie “Beso de Bala” directed by Puerto Rican movie director “Diego de la Texera”. Besides his incredible career track, Gerardo also has a great sense of style and that’s one of the reasons he’ll be giving us some tips on how to follow his fashion! We had so much fun doing this shoot and I hope you get to enjoy this post and the interview we did! Hopefully Gerardo will be back to give us more tips for a relaxed and chill look :)

1. ¿Cómo describirías tu estilo personal?

Dual y no muy complicado. Pero esto tiene que ver con los distintos momentos y situaciones en los que me desarrollo, a veces toca ser el ejecutivo promedio, de tonos oscuros y grisáceos. Otras veces (Y el que más prefiero) es el Surfero, relajado..despreocupado.

How would you describe your personal style?

Ambiguous and not complicated. But I think it has to do with the different situations I involve myself into, sometimes I’m the average executive, and then I see myself as the Surfer (which is my favorite) , relaxed and breezy.

2. Te interesa la moda?

No sufro por la Moda, las tendencias me gusta verlas y jugar, nunca he sido fan de la moda, pero me gusta estar pendiente de lo que está pasando por ahí.

Green, blue, gray, white and I would say black is the color I enjoy the most.

4.¿Qué dificultades o retos se te han presentado en la industria del cine y la televisión nicaragüense?

El mayor reto de todos los que queremos producir sería el de no caer en los mismos modelos de hace 30, 40 años…Renovar las producciones, tomar los buenos ejemplos en vez de simplemente atacar a los demás y sus producciones.

What difficulties or challenges have you faced in the Nicaraguan film and television industry?

The biggest challenge of all producers would be to avoid falling into the same patterns of 30, 40 years ago … We need to renew productions and follow good examples rather than simply attacking others and their productions.

5. ¿Cómo ves el futuro de la industria de los realities y cine en Nicaragua?

Era un terreno nuevo cuando decidimos explorarlo, ahora está aflorando con la ayuda de producciones foráneas que motivan a las nuevas generaciones a hacer cosas totalmente extraordinarias. En Nicaragua hay mucho futuro porque hay mucho talento

My favorite skorts are back!


It has been a long time since I don’t wear my black skorts. They were so trendy last year that I wore them a lot and maybe got sick of them so I just stopped wearing them since the beginning of this year. This weekend I felt like wearing them again because, even though they aren’t exactly trendy right now, they look so good and match with pretty much everything, especially the black and white ones. I love how they look with stilettos, specially my steve madden heels, but If you want a more casual look you can wear them with flats or even platforms which are very in. This time I decided to match them with a white blouse but I normally love wearing my skorts with graphic tees because they give them a balance between chic and streetstyle and the results are amazing! Go ahead and try out that garment you used to wear a lot but you no longer wear because it’s not very in at the moment, and you’ll see how great it feels to be back on it!

Sunny Ombre & Cuffs


Hello guys! It’s raining outside and I bet all you wanna do is grab a cup of coffee and sit by the window to enjoy this amazing weather, and of course, miss school/work today lol. So, I’m gonna show you a trend that started a couple years ago but it’s now becoming a classic and hopefully it’ll stay that way for a while because it’ll be hard for me to let it go. This trend is called ombre, and you can find it in all types of clothes, shoes, hair, make-up, decorations, food, etc,. It isn’t really brand new, because it was present on hairstyles in the 60s, 70s, 80s, but it got back recently and it is now established in other categories rather than just hair. I wore these pair of ombre shorts yesterday morning because unlike today, it was a very sunny day. I also wanted to show you that wearing ombre shorts doesn’t mean you cannot combine them with golden/silver accesories – since they represent formality and they are always associated with formal attire- but please don’t pay attention to that preconception! I’m telling you it looks good and it’s ok to add some gold to your casual outfit! I hope you guys enjoy your evening and I bet you are gonna get a long nap because today feels just like doing that! See you guys soon :)

Skin & Hair Essentials


There are some products that are just like deodorants, you don’t even notice you use them because they are so essential, and sometimes they become mandatory, just like panties – you have to wear them! I will show you three of the products that I use every single day at every season of the year, and one product that I use whenever my skin needs it lol.

kkk-8

First we have a liquid soap for your everyday shower. This product is Genove and you can find it at drug stores, pharmacies and supermarkets. Instead of using regular soap, I rather use this body wash because it is a dermoprotector and it keeps my skin so soft that I don’t need to apply moisturizer after my bath. So why getting baths with normal soaps when you can get a Genove bath and get that soft and protected skin?

kkk-7

Now we’ll move to our hair, and here I have Bio Silk Theraphy, a light treatment that you can apply to dry or wet hair and it protects your hair from both cold and hot temperatures. I use this product everyday to control my frizz and the best part is that you only need a few drops to get that shiny and hydrated hair! This product is super helpful If you use your dryer or iron too often.

kkk-6

My third essential is named Bioderma. This product was recommended by my dermatologist and since then I cannot stop using it! Bioderma is a purifying exfoliating cleanser perfect for oily skins but works well on all type of skins. I use this product to wash my face every night – you can also wash your face with bioderma in the mornings, it doesn’t have to be at night-  and prevent acne, it also helps me eliminate pimples and blackheads, specially when I’m in my period.

kkk-5

And finally, let me show a product that I have only used twice in my entire life but I would strongly recommend it, because its results are amazing and fast. Mesoestetics Radiance DNA is an anti-aging treatment; I know you’ll ask why I would use this product since I’m young and I don’t really need it, but lets not focus on its anti-aging effects. Well, I found out by experience that whenever I go to the beach and get burned by the sunlight, this product makes my skin’s recovery faster than any other product, and this is because the sunlight weakens the skin’s internal mechanisms damaging the DNA, and one of the many functions of this product is to reduce the damage caused by the sunlight and stimulate the DNAs injuries. Amazing right? Who would say that an anti-aging product can also help you with problems you are usually seeking to solve through other products?

kkk-3

I hope you guys liked this post about some essentials you need for your skin and hair, and I’ll get back with more products for you personal care! See you guys soon :)
