Best dressed at the Royal Wedding

Lady Kitty Spencer
I've been only to one wedding in my life and I wish I could have dressed like any of these wonderful ladies in this post.  By far one of my favorites was Lady Kitty Spencer wearing a green D&G dress and that fascinator was insane! 

Of course Victoria Beckham is on my list as well, but I mean she is a set one in there, everything she wears is perfect. 
Someone that really surprised me was Carey Mulligan, I don't know if I am biased because I loved her role on "An Education" so much, or if it is the Erdem dress is truly perfect for a Spring wedding.

Royal Wedding Re-cap!

The #RoyalWedding is finally here! I mean, it was. How time flies right? Well I still remember when I saw William's and Kate's wedding. I had school but I asked my mom to stay in and watch the entire thing, it started like at 5 or 6 am as well and after watching it and went to Tumblr to repost absolutely all the pictures I could find. 
So today was no exception al though I have to confess I had to wake up later because I was extremly tired and my body wouldn't cooperate to wake up at 6 am lol. To be honest, the dress didn't impress me but the traditions and history, as always, certainly did. 
I am a sucker for traditions and royal dynasties so watching another royal wedding was definitely in my schedule. 
Go to my instagram to see the beautiful photos I put together.

3 ways to deal with change!

I cannot believe I didn't post these pictures I took in Central Park during fall, they are stunning! But you know what fall is associated with? Change, the much dreaded change. And let me tell you, if someone knows bout change its me and if someone knows how hard change is, its me and how to hate change its me, but I'm converted now. I like change, ok that was too much of a statement. But I enjoy change, I try to live with it and I do have my little secrets that I would love to share with you! 

  1. Do not fight change. Easier said than done I know! But the more you try to fight it the more it will take you to accept it. A good way to not fight change is to think what could go wrong? everything? ok, so let everything go wrong. At my short 24 years I've discovered that when everything "goes wrong" I am still alive and if I think about it a month later it wasn't that bad after all. 
  2.  Have a routine. This one applies a 100% if you are moving to another city or country. Establishing different routines work for your mind like you know where to go and what to do, you have something to look forward to! One of my routines when I first got to New York was go to my favorite neighborhood and walk around, then go to a Starbucks (routine people)  and order a coffee. Then when I moved apartments my routine was going to get sushi at a place on 66st and then go to Central Park, to come back to a Starbucks (I know!) for my daily dose of caffeine (At the time!)
  3. Search for support. And if you are any like me, I'm not saying people, al though if you have people that can act as a support system, good for you! But for me support sometimes was writing on my blog, going through old pictures and lately has been reading. Yes in some sort of way is a form of escaping reality but at the end of the day we all need a escape from crazy people or world, but HEY just a little! 

TriBeCa Desire

With gorgeous sunshine that tells me summer is approaching came the desire of having a Vespa, again. I don't know if it is the summer feelings that make me want to be outside all the time or missing having wheels to get me everywhere. But lately the only thing I am seeing in the streets are F Vespas! And I was so decided I wanted one last year I even went to see them and try them and fell in love with this one. Which made me think about something. Once you put your mind into something or start thinking you want something OR draw your attention to something you start seeing it more, everywhere and that is what we should do with our dreams and the things we want to accomplish! 

Seriously people, I am writing something soon about this subject. Focus on the important things! And I mean it, I'm not saying focus only in your family, but yourself and what you want! 

Maybe I should get the Vespa after all! 

Visitors to Versailles #NYCGuide

Last Saturday...

I went to The MET, my happy place, you already know, and went to see the exhibition 'Visitors to Versailles' which came to my attention on a facebook post and since I fell in love with that palace when I went to France I told myself I had to go. 

Best decision ever made. First of all I've always hated earphones at museum because I think people look uber stupid, but this time I decided to ask if they made any difference and the lady at the museum told me, absolutely. And oh boy, absolutely! So the idea of this exhibit is that you "go through" the palace as if you were an ambassador- the earphones made you think you were actually there with the 3D audio experience, kid you not, I looked several times away thinking someone was actually talking to me so the 3D in this exhibit is highly recommended. 

From someone that has been to the Palace of Versailles this is a must see (only if you loved it as much as I do) I remembered some great thing I saw back in 2012 there and it actually was a very good feeling to remember my euro trip where I had so much fun. 

If you are not in in NYC you can go here to listen to the 3D audios and maybe just see the pics of the gallery on the MET's website

Hair change!

YES! I did it. All of a sudden one day I said "I want to dye my hair black" 3 days later I did it. And I LOVE IT! 
I used L'oreal hair dye in Soft black which was perfect for a week or 2. Since the color started fading a little I went back to the pharmacy and bought Jet black and I am loving the hair lately. It makes me look more goth-like, sexier and more confident. Overall was a great thing to do and now I am waiting for the end of the year to dye my hair blonde, because I decided it is time to pull the trigger and do everything I've always wanted!
