serendipity is the act of finding something valuable or delightful when you are not looking for it.
play, can't meet light unless you've found darkness, can't know serendipity unless you risk or unmask your intentions.
I can't say I'm a girl of simple tastes, however I paradoxically enjoy plane fortunate moments observing my surroundings, walking around, being spontaneous, giggling for hours, having a sudden intellectual conversation, free my mind, and once I've slayed its dragons, live each and every feeling in the most intense way possible.
So, this friday I would encourage you to dip your serenity in serendipity and let the surprise be your prize. (That right there, was a great inspiration stroke)
serendipity es el acto de encontrar algo valioso o encantador cuando no lo estas buscando.
Palabras. Amor. Una canción. Una mirada. Un amigo. Una labial. Un par de tacones de aguja .....
Un viento inesperado... click .... que crea la imagen perfecta en un milisegundo.
Un pensamiento que nos transporta lejos de aquí y ahora a una corriente utopica ..
La vida se basa en acción. No se puede sentir calor a menos que lo creemos, no podemos sentir placer hasta que juguemos, no podemos encontrar la luz a menos que enfrentemos a la oscuridad, no podemos vivir la serendipia sin arriegar o desenmascarar nuestras verdaderas intenciones y con ellas nuestros mas profundos sentmientos.
No puedo decir que soy una chica de gustos sencillos, sin embargo, paradójicamente, disfruto de momentos de paz observando mi entorno, paseando, siendo espontánea, descubriendo nuevos lugares, vagando sin rumbo, riendo por horas, teniendo inesperadamente una buena conversación sobre la vida, liberando mi mente, y una vez que he derrotado a sus dragones, viviendo todos y cada uno de mis sentimientos de la forma más intensa posible.
Así que este viernes les recomendaría, que no esperen nada, para que pase todo...
"You wake up at Seatac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O'Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time. You wake up at Air Harbor International. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?"
What do you think? Could you?
Years go by, we go to the same places, sometimes meet the same people, but are we the same person?
Because life goes on and we develop, we spiritually and mentally grow, we suffer, and most important we learn.
It might be the same spot in the park, the same lake, the same ducks... But never the same thoughts.
Such a powerful letter to me. A few years back it had no meaning but a pain in my tale, because of the difficulty to pronounce it.
Now it means everything and nothing.
It is the beginning of the future: Writer
It is heritage: Woodworth
It is powerful: Word
It can inflect pain and change everything: War
It is all of us: World
It was something mundane that change it's meaning after years of learning... After years of living.
It makes me fell fearless, strong, happy and somehow surprised of how much experiences can change you forever.
Love can change you, sorrow, pain and excitement... It's beautiful.
No surprise this sweater had a magnetic attraction on me, such a lovely thing triggered so much in my mind I needed to own it.
That's how a favourite is born, when you don't just like it because it's pretty, but because it means something.
Sweater/BENETTON NEW COLLECTION
"Grab your coat and get your hat, leave your worry on the doorstep...Just direct your feet to the sunny side of the Street"
Un ejemplo perfecto es el antiguo glamour dorado de hollywood.
Esos días en que era todo sobre belleza natural y ese factor X en lugar de twerking y controversia sólo para obtener ratings. Me encantaría que esas cosas como el bien vestir, la educación y caballerosidad todavía fueran elementos esenciales en nuestra sociedad.
Esa es la razón por la que las prendas como una blusa de seda, lápiz labial rojo o sombreros y guantes evocan tanto.
Esas son piezas con un pasado .... Y el pasado tiene misterio.
Fue muy emocionante cuando me adueñe de esta fedora.
La gente suele decirme que tengo una cara sombrero (odio como suena) lo que significa que puedo llevarlos. Realmente no lo sé, lo que sé es que me hacen sentir diferente, de alguna manera misteriosa y como que estoy usando un poco de ese inmaculado encanto milenario.
Los sombreros hacen a una dama fuerte y seductora sin esfuerzo. Esconden sus ojos y sus verdaderas intenciones, sólo mostrando sus labios y una sonrisa coqueta.
5, 10, 30 minutes more make a delightful difference until you stare at your clock in horror, because you have only 3 minutes left to dash to where ever you need to and find a remedy to the lion-maze/puffy-eyes/what-am-I-going-to-wear/situation.
I would never judge you for going out to a party, a little cocktail, Fashion show or just staying up late to talk to the one....
Nevertheless I'm here to help you open your eyes... LITERALLY and look flawless in less then 5 minutes.
Lesson number 1.
Select your look the night before.
This is the most basic thing to leave the house on time. It's been proofed that we girls spend over a year of our lifes choosing what to wear. At least every average woman... probably not me.. I spend a little more. Sorry Not Sorry.
Putting your entire outfit the night before will make you save valuable time and dress up mechanically without even thinking about it. That way you'll do it quick and look polish without givivng it lots of thought, at least at the very exact moment. Remember to leave your accesories as well.
That's one of your main problems solved in less then 2 minutes.
Lesson number 2.
Take a shower the night before and braid your hair.
Many of us take a shower the night before to sleep well, others really need it to get up, but when there's no time one most prioritize and sleep is much more amazing than getting all wet while you are still in cloud 9.
So take a shower and braid your entire mane. Doesn't matter if it's long or short.. That way when you wake up it'll be dry and look all wave and naturally beautiful for you to leae like that or just add the finishing touches.
Lesson number 3.
Moisturize your lips.
We wake up all worried about our puffy read eyes, but don't get even a little concerned about the stated of our smile. Cracked lips look and feel absolutely terrible, so first thing in the morning in waking up, washion your face, your teeth and applying lip balm so they smooth up while you get dressed and do your hair and makeup.
Lesson number 4.
Puffy eye remedie.
If you normally wake up looking like a raccon then you desperately need to leave a spoon in your fridge. That wake you'll wake up and while doing your morning smoothie, place it in your eyes and over the bags underneath them to make them go back to normal. Afterwards just apply a bit of illuminator in the inner corners of the eyes to make them look bigger.
Lesson number 4.
Once you are all cleaned up, dressed up ad your hair is fine you need to do the final touches.
There's no time for a very ellaborate look, so just take your most trust worthy brown eye liner and mascara to focus on a natural look. Why brown liner? It's easier to apply without getting all smudged and ruining your hard work in seconds. Natural looks don't require foundation, but if you really need it, better use a BB-cream that will not only even your skin but moisturize, repair and protect from the sun as well. Throw a lipstick in your back pack or just leave them naturally moisturized because of lesson 3.
And that's how you get ready after over sleeping...
Hope this tips come in handy next time you spend a rather fun night and wish to sleep a few merciful minutes longer.
