Leather Inspired!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend and a good start of  the week!
I been sewing again and that really makes me happy ,keeps my mind focus and my soul at peace ,it's like therapy for me!
I had sewn this skirt back in November and i had wore  it a  couple of times already but i never had a chance to photographed it .
At the time i didn't had a leather skirt so this was my version of a Faux-leather skirt,not bad right lol ?!
I been watching Fashion star and love it !
 I noticed that the host ask the designers what the signature pieces where and i found myself asking the same question.
At first i didn't know the answer but after some small thinking i must say i started of making little girls dresses and now i'm stuck with pleated and non pleated skirts.
I guess that means that's my signature piece :)
For the record i'm a designer wanna be sometimes i think i have what it takes but some days i'm not so confident about it and i questioned myself.
I hope you guys like my skirt and i must not forget these amazing booties i fall in love with at first sight,last pair on sale i love the zipper detail!!!

Much Love

Alligator Valley!

Hi Everyone,

Hope ya'll are having a wonderful Sunday!
Today i wanna share my first  experience when i first moved to Florida!
I remember thinking about the snakes and alligators at all times, i was constantly thinking i would come across them at any time and that did not quite happen as i thought.
I remember one Floridian telling me where you see water there will  always be a alligator living in it,i thought i would never leave the house nor come near a lake or swamp.
Easier said then done my husband had me on these trips almost every weekend there is not much protection for the human being at those park because they say they are more terrific of us,really ?!
I can tell  you that  i seen the snake in my backyard i'm still not a fan but as long as they keep their distance i'm fine lol.
I still don't like the alligators or crocodile i never have and never will and even though these parks are relatively near but yet in a decent distance, i prefer seeing them at their nature habitat.
Alligators  are some really smart animal they patiently wait and observe  their prey before they make the perfect  move and when they do is a deadly catch.
It's ironic how innocent and violent death can be for most animal specially when they are around  this silent dangerous animal.
 I  love that i surrounded by nature, gorgeous parks and beaches  there is always something new to discover great for children and people that appreciate nature!
I had a great childhood in Germany i lived in a small Town with a priceless view of mountains,hills,some wild animals and forest i feel blessed i can also give my children a nature surrounding full of discoveries too.
I'm thankful i was given that privilege as child by my parents and grandparents and i'm so grateful i can do the same for my children today.

On another note i wanna give a big thanks to my  friend Geini Corona for sending me a surprise package with this gorgeous pair of animal print booties i'm wearing today.
It was so unexpected and she truly made my day ,i love surprises :)

Much love,

Country hi- tops !

Happy Friday Everyone!

I realize that i  have developed a grown love for hi-tops sneakers with these ones that would make it the second pair i own.
I have to admit i'm not a fan of sneakers unless is used for the gym but that has change in a blink of a eye and now i find myself craving another pair probably more funkier :)
I love how it looks paired with skirt,shorts or skinny jeans!!
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for reading !

Much Love,

 Feliz viernes a todos,

Me eh dando  cuenta de que he desarrollado un amor por  los hi-tops tennis con estos se  convierten en el segundo par que tengo.
Tengo que admitir que no soy un fanático de tennis a menos que se utilize para ir al gimnasio, pero eso ha cambiado en un abrir y cerrar de un ojo y ahora me encuentro deseoando otra paar, probablemente, más funky :)
Me encanta cómo se ve emparejado con falda, shorts o jeans !
Buen fin de semana maravilloso y muchas gracias por leer!

con amor,
