Songs that Inspire…

Songs and music inspire us to become better people, more daring, invincible. Coming from the caribbean I have been surrounded by tropical music. However, songs that talk about getting up after a set back inspire me a great deal. Here is to those songs that lifted our spirits and gave us strength when when we were down. One of my favorites!! Hope you like it!!

You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me
Cher Lyrics

Feeling broken
Barely holding on
But just there’s something so strong
Somewhere inside me.
And I am down, but I’ll get up again.
Don’t count me out just yet

I’ve been brought down to my knees
And I’ve been pushed way past the point of breaking,
But I can take it.
I’ll be back –
Back on my feet
This is far from over
You haven’t seen the last of me.
You haven’t seen the last of me.

They can
Say that
I won’t stay around
But I’m gonna stand my ground
You’re not gonna stop me.
You don’t know me, you don’t know who I am.
Don’t count me out so fast

I’ve been brought down to my knees
And I’ve been pushed way past the point of breaking,
But I can take it.
I’ll be back –
Back on my feet
This is far from over
You haven’t seen the last of me.

There will be no fade-out
This is not the end
I’m down now
But I’ll be standing tall again.
Times are hard but
I was built tough.
I’m gonna show you all what I’m made of.

I’ve been brought down to my knees
I’ve been pushed way past the point of breaking,
But I can take it.
I’ll be back –
Back on my feet
This is far from over

I AM FAR FROM OVER

You haven’t seen the last of me.

No, no, I’m not going nowhere
I’m staying right here
Oh, no you won’t see me fade out
I’m not taking my bow
Can’t stop me.
Its not the end
You haven’t sseen the last of me
Oh, no –
You haven’t seen the last of me.
You haven’t seen the last of me.

Best Friends

Why do you think friends are sometimes closer than family? Maybe it is because our friends are divided by age. We don’t see them as a big brother or little sister, they are just our friends. I met my best friend about 23 years ago and we are still close. There are times were a life circumstances separate friends and when they get together again is not the same closeness. This is completely understandable because people change and grow. Thanks God this is not the case of my best friend. We lived in separate countries for years but we always look for each other. She was and is my touch with reality when things get blurry, I can be silly and make mistakes. There is no judgement between us; however, we have something that I call pure honesty. I can ask her anything and she will tell me her honest opinion without any tenderness. I really appreciate this because to me is easy to understand each other. Some people will say that is too cruel, but I called amazing. Think about it, how many people that love you will tell you their opinion without fear of hurting your feelings? Almost none. I appreciate the fact that I don’t have to be too tactful or think about what I say more than once. With my best friend I can be me, without fear that she might kill me in the process or won’t speak to me again. We appreciate each other opinions and respect each other opinions. To resume this sharing if feelings with you all, I can say that I am the luckiest person alive because on top of having the best family in the world, that have been with me since the beginning of my days, the best boyfriend of the world, and an amazing son. I have the most strongest (literally, 3rd strongest woman in the world) and amazing best friend in the world. So Giselle Costas if you read this I want to tell you that on top of been an amazing woman, you are an exceptional friend. TQM!!!!

Lavander Trees

This are three beautiful lavender trees that some friends of mine have at their house. These talented twins have a green finger and in addition to these trees they are developing apples, grapes, and kiwi!!! As you all know the weather is hot/tropical and this guys are cultivating fruits that belong in colder temperatures. I’m very proud of them! What do you think??

What makes life beautyful?

It depends, on the individual perception. Something or some event can be beautiful for you but not for me. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” as in beauty is in you, therefore there is not one meaning or characteristic for beauty. There are as many definitions of beauty as there is people in the world. Maybe we have to change our search, instead of looking for beauty we should feel the beauty. I have ask some of my clients what is beauty for them and they all describe something different but they all feel the same. A warmth in their hearts, the desire to smile, hope, peace and the overwhelming desire of either keep looking at it or remain in that same moment in time. The thing is that beauty is everywhere and because it depends on our points of view we can certainly look for beauty everywhere and in everything. What makes YOUR life beautiful?

Have a beautiful and bless day!!

What would you be?

Today I was blessed to see someone doing what she loved to do, and she is lucky enough that it is her job. She would do it even without getting paid, that is how much she love her job!! if you had the change to do whatever it is you love for living, what would it be?

Disney Oz the Powerful Makeup…

Después de ver el trailer, vestuario, etc. de la nueva película de Disney Oz, me intrigo el contraste de colores de las escenas. Con maquillaje para estrenary porque se que vendran muchos looks de las actrices. Decidí hacer un maquillaje inspirado en la escenografía.

After watching the many trailers of the Disney movie Oz I was intrigue by the dream like color contrast of the scenography. Because I have new makeup to use, and because I know you will see many looks inspired in the beautiful actresses I decided to make a look inspired in that amazing color contrast of the movie. (However, I will be recreating a look inspired in Rachel Weisz character Evanora I simply love her makeup!)
