Quotable Monday | Tweets That Inspire Week 7


Happy Monday darlings!

This morning I am back with quotable Mondays to share inspiration on "prioritizing". Like I shared last week, I've been participating on a Twitter chat on Tuesday evenings at 9 PM EST under the hashtag #fireworkpeople and some of these quotes are an extension of what we spoke about last Tuesday. One of the questions that caught my attention and that I often meditate on is: What can I do to get one step closer to achieving my dreams (whether it's career wise, spiritually or even learning a new hobby). I started thinking that for me, as a creative, I often get flooded with ideas and I often have to prioritize and sometimes do the things that I don't enjoy as much (obligations) in order to put myself in a position to have the necessary resources in order to do more of what I really want to do.








Here are some things I do and ask myself when making my to-do list:

- Are there any deadlines I have to meet that need my attention first?
- How long will my project take? (give yourself a determined block of time and always give yourself more time than what you first plan because chances are it will take longer)
- When working on a project, try not to multi-task because it actually takes away from productivity. To help with that, I set working times with little rewards at the end of the time that I plan to work for. It really inspires me because I love rewards. 
-I breakdown a bigger and more tedious task into a series of smaller projects that will take less time to complete. That way I can scratch things out of my list faster and feel a sense of accomplishment. 
- I usually share at least part of my list with someone for accountability purposes. 

How good are you at prioritizing? Do you have any tips on how to do so more effectively?

Coups de Coeur | September


Hello darlings,

Taking a quick break from my work to peek in and share my September coups de coeur (french for my favorite things) during the month that just ended. I mean September is cool by itself just because it brings us Fall, but I also lived and discovered little treasures that I love to share in one post today. 

Instagram September recap.


1. I have been loving sharing Quotable Mondays. It is basically a post with some of my favorite twittable quotes directly from  my blog. I am starting to partner with bloggers that also do hand lettering to bring pin-worthy quotes that would be published on Mondays. Are you interested in collaborating with me? Let me know! PS. This picture also represents this month's celebration of National coffee day!

2. So happy to have been featured in 2 different blogs this month for which I wrote a short interview. The first was a food related interview on Heartbeet Kitchen Blog that is run by author and fabulous cook Amanda. She also shared a delicious treat here that you need to check out! I was also featured on Allyslewis website in which I shared a bit about how I decided to grow and manage my blog.  If you missed it, you can read it here

3. A sea of neon balloons for a children's program in which I participated this month. 

4. In this month I made my first pie (from scratch) ever! I wrote a whole post about it to share the full adventure. 

5. This month I received my first Deeply Rooted Magazine that came with a beautiful, small print with a spiritual thought for me to display on my wall. I am slowly reading it and I am enjoying some of the stories of creatives and how they use their talents to glorify God and be a light in the world. I discovered that it is more of a young adult women kind of magazine. Some topics applied to me but for others I will have pull it out when I get to that stage of life. 

6. I shared a DIY that I love and use in my house. A neon macrame plant hanger, what is there not to love?!




Coups de Coeur

I am not a big follower of style or fashion blogs, but I discovered this one from my hometown and I love it! 

Do you have a hard time transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall? Here are some unusual ways to do it that I truly enjoyed reading. This blogger is the most creative, style blogger that I've seen in terms of putting outfits together. I have been following her for a while, not only because of her thrifty style that is according to my my own heart, but also for her writing. 

I started joining a new Twitter chat on Tuesday evenings at 9 EST under the hashtag #fireworkpeople. It is a community of creatives that get together to encourage each other on following our dreams, making things happen and use our gifts to uplift others. Join their Facebook page if you wish to check it out!

This month the new Darling Magazine came out and I am so happy. I enjoy reading the articles and pacing myself so that I can really take in all the beauty. Join the #realnotretouched movement. 

I got a membership on Skillshare and have done quite a few classes already but be sure to check out the ones by Justina Blakeney. I've loved her blog, her style, and I've faithfully followed her on Pinterest so when I saw that I could take her class I was ecstatic! Sign up for a free month and take her styling class here

If you are a magazine junkie like me, you will be happy to learn about this magazine called Thryve Magazine. Their message is constructive, challenging, and they have amazing photography. I was glad to come across it through some friends. 

Two exciting launches this month: Christian Girl Magazine launched their site and I am so happy for them! Also, my blogger friend over at Dearly Loved Blog re-lauched her site and if you love reading posts full of insight and simultaenoesly biblically sound, you will love her blog! 

As you know, I love instagram so so much, and here are my 3 favorite IG accounts at the moment: here, here and here.

Movies I loved watching lately, which 2 are food related movies: Chef, 100 foot journey and Begin again.

Enjoy October XOXO

Quotable Mondays | Inspirational Tweets Week No.6


Happy Tuesday darlings!

I am working on this extremely needed concept of "getting a routine" and as I work on it, I am reminded that bad habits die hard. Working from home has been amazing but I have sometimes felt like I lose control over my time and that it goes by so fast without actually feeling like I accomplished much. I discovered that it was because I tackled my day with a to-do list but without a routine or strategy in terms of time blocks.  So it's been 2 week since I started forging new habits, little by little. I am not perfect and I still don't follow this rigid schedule to the fullest but I see my behavior changing daily and I call those moments my "little victories". 

Today I am back with my Twittable quotes which is really making my Monday that much more fun. I am sharing some quotes from my Friday post about my desert obsession and how it has shaped me. If you missed it I hope you will go back and read it; it may give you hope. 


"a geography of apparent lack is actually a place of secret nurture" Darling Magazine (Click on this quote to Tweet)

Here's also a quote of my ever favorite character (since childhood) Anne of Green Gables "Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world" (Click on this quote to tweet)

"No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."
1 Corinthians 10:13 (Click on his quote to tweet)

I am also excited to share that on Sunday I was featured on allynlewis.com in which I was invited to share about how I started my blog, how a new blogger can grow their readership, and a bit about my blogging routine. It was really fun to do and I am thankful for the opportunity to meet new readers. Hope you will check it out! 

Do you have any encouraging quotes or tweets that you would like me to share on Mondays? Send me an email, I would love to read them!

Faith Post | Every Desert Hides A Well


It's Friday! It's Friday! It's Friday!

To finish this beautiful and busy week I would like to share my most recent obsession, the desert. It started with the plan of visiting a famous spot in Puerto  Rico called el Bosque Seco (Dry Forest) of Guánica while on a recent road trip. Basically it's a unique national park that contains a small piece of desert within this Caribbean, tropical island. For some reason that part of the trip got cancelled. I then received the Darling Magzine No. that highlighted the desert as its main inspiration; it literally blew my mind. As if all that wasn't enough, I felt many pieces of scripture aligning and meshing with the thoughts this magazine had stirred in me. This is the process that has led me here today.

June 3rd, 2013 was the day I arrived to this Caribbean Island to start a whole new chapter of our lives after a wonderful honeymoon in Hawaii . I was embarking on a journey that would require me to take on several new roles. I had packed my whole life in 6 suitcases, said bye to my friends and for a second time moved even further from family. The bliss of being a newlywed was definitely the best time to take such huge leap because the joy of finally being together (learn more about our love story herehere and here) was greater than any difficulty or trials that came our way. I write this so that you may understand that no matter how much you prepare for a transition mentally, financially, and even logistically, there are always unforeseen variables that could be disconcerting.   Think of all the small things that come with a change of country, a change of marital status, a change of career and that other simple stuff like finding a new favorite fresh market, a place where I can have a fresh bagel again, or just patiently hoping for a new kindred spirit to become a new best friend. 

When my husband went back to work and I found myself in an empty apartment with my suitcases, with more time on my hands than I had ever dreamed of, reality started to sink in. The adaptation process had begun and there was no way back. That was, in a way, the beginning of my latest walk through a desert. 

Today I am opening my heart to tell you a piece of my story that I don't normally share here, but  I have come to understand that stories are powerful. And like in any story, the whole thing is not pure cake, some parts of it reveal a struggle and that is the desert. That is the part I want to share with you and pray that it will give you hope if you find yourself in a transition or in a dry place emotionally or even spiritually. 




The desert is not dead
"a geography of apparent lack is actually a place of secret nurture" Darling Magazine

We may look at the desert and make the mistake of thinking that there is no life in it because of how dry, how silent, and how much of a barren wasteland it appears to be. It is in these instances in which we have to purposely choose to look closely in order to discover the well hidden inside and all the life it actually has.

Those first days on this Caribbean Island felt more like a vacation than anything else. I woke up without any alarms, I poured myself a nice cup of coffee and went back to bed to read. What can I say, it was perfect. However, like I said earlier, when I started finding myself with more time than I had wished for I started to feel a void. All these questions started flooding me, mostly concerning my purpose during this time of my life. So much uncertainty, so many unanswered questions would rob me from my peace and make me cry. I had plenty of creative ideas, many projects to tackle but little to no resources to get them done. I desperately missed my family and my girlfriends to go out and have a chat but I had no one that I felt close enough to open my heart to in those early days. 

I was in a desert, but I also had a choice. That period of my life looked like a dead period but I had the choice to stop hitting my head against the wall and turn to God and ask Him to help me silence my troubled heart (all the doubts, the uncertainty, the needs, the desires, and unmet expectations), to let my tears clean my eyes and let pain shift my perspective of things and instead of thinking about all the things I was lacking, I would start celebrating every small blessing and allow this process to develop patience and endurance inside me. And if you have been following this blog or my social media, you know that all I showcase is an extension of that. The unexpected beauty and the blessings in the small and sometimes mundane daily tasks. 

This is how this blog started. I had lots of inspiration during those long days by myself and so I started where I was. I took out my unused SLR Canon camera and started experimenting with it. I started writing my inspirations and filing them away. Than the day came in which I took the courage to start sharing them with all of you. 

We have the power to choose if our desert will be a barren and dead period of our lives that will make us bitter or a time in which we will allow that very thing that causes us discomfort to be the vehicle to cut out of our lives the excess. What do I mean? I was so busy before with my job and my social life that I rarely (never actually) had a full year of retreat with myself to re-evaluate my values, my goals, and my desires allowing me to trim out everything that I no longer wanted to have in it. It also became a time in which I explored and acquired new skills, took classes, wrote more, and also got closer to my Maker. 


"But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there" Hosea 2:14




Alone but not lonely 
The desert is often a place in which you go at it alone. Even though as a couple you are experiencing similar things,                                                                                                                                              at the end of the day you each deal with it in your own way. We live in a society that values the hustling and bustling, the "doer" and "get it done" attitude which are good in a way, because it pulls us forward. It should not, however, replace the disciplines of silence, meditation, prayer, fasting, and studying.

I am always amazed at how our brains work, and just how our bodies need vacation. Our brains also need a time of silence, time to think peacefully without any social media, tv, conversations, or any other type of distraction. During this time, I have reconnected with God in fresh ways because I was in a desert and had time to be silent and alone at His feet. I also had time to reconnect with a side of myself that had been buried for years and that could only flourish in an environment of calm and rest. 

I have learned to more fully enjoy the times I can spend alone and to squeeze the most out of them because I understand that this is a season. There will be other seasons in which the only alone time will probably be in the bathroom (but maybe not even). I also learned to be open to learn from pain. Working out is the best example of what enough pain can do to transform our bodies. I knew this patch was going to be difficult regardless of all the amazing people I was meeting and learning to love. It is only human to crave what is familiar, so I prayed that none of my tears would go to waste. I resolved to maintain a teachable spirit, to learn all that I could in this great adventure that I had chosen myself but that nevertheless still caused a level of pain.  

The desert land does not last for ever
The burning-hot sun of the desert, the hurting feet, and the thirst that come from a long walk in a desert does not last forever. Saint Antoine d'éxupéry said that "What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well" and I love that quote because of how real I have found this to be. My strenuous walk in the desert will not last forever but when I look back at that time of my life I will see how much I gained from it in terms of wisdom, faith, endurance, perspective, a thankful heart, empathy and in my case, even a blog. 

There was a well in my desert, full of richness, abundance, and life. But it was so different that at first I missed it. However, as my walk went on, I silenced myself in order to be able to listen to the voice in the wind whispering confidence, new insight, and reassurance. I too discovered that the desert is not a wasteland, on the contrary, it has an abundance of life.

Have a wonderful weekend! XO

Special Thanks to Jessica from  Team Wiking for letting me use her beautiful Fall desert style pictures for this post.

Quotable Monday | Inspirational Tweets


Today's quotes are mainly about timing. They are inspirational tweets for when we want to do something but feel like we are too late in the game. I've discovered, however, that you are never too late to learn something new or to take one more step to get you closer to that dream you've been  nurturing for years. I know that it takes guts, sometimes double the work that others put in. Take this post as a little wink of encouragement.

Don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle -Jon Acuff (Click the quote to Tweet)

If we wait until we're ready, we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives -Lemony Snicket

Big things often have small beginnings -unknown

The secret to getting ahead is getting started -Mark Twain

Above all be the heroine of your life not the victim -Nora Ephron

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. -Arthur Ashe

This last one is my favorite quote. It has helped me stay focused so many times on using and doing my best with what I have as opposed to waiting to have more in order to get busy. Honestly it's an old principle written in my favorite book that basically says that when we are faithful and diligent with little, more and bigger things will be trusted on to us.

And the cherry on this Monday is this passage "But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you" -Psalm 56:3

Coffee Shop Le Falco in Montreal & Ways to make most of your day trips


hello Darlings, 

Just passing by to share some pictures of a date we had while in Montreal this summer along with some tips on how to make most of a date day, either with your significant other or with your friends. Meet Le Falco, both an industrial and cozy coffee shop that makes your coffee drinking experience unique and so delicious. 




If you have never visited Montreal, I hope you plan to very soon because it has a wide array of choices for food, amazing coffee shops, and entertainment. The plan was to go on a coffee shop tour, right after my husband left to go back home (I was staying a few extra days), but luckily his flight was cancelled and he got to stay 3 more days so we were able to enjoy the city together for longer. 





When planing a date day in a city we are traveling to, here are some of the elements we consider that can help you get the most out of it: 

Plan a tentative schedule and itinerary 
It is good to plan a flexible schedule. You don't want to make it rigid and stressful but more like a guideline that will help you stay on track in case you run out of ideas. For example, plan to go to the places that close earlier first with your meals based on your eating preferences and leave for later the things that have a more flexible schedule. It is also good to plan your transportation (check the weather ahead of time) in addition to how you will procure cash in the correct currency, and finally an average of how much you want to spend  There's nothing more annoying than losing part of your day meant for fun on planning how to actually get to the fun. 

Note: Allow room for spontaneity, after all, you are doing this to have fun and to make memories. 





Carry only what is necessary 
In my bag I usually carry (for summer or fall outings) a small bottle of water, a snack, my iphone, my DSL camera, a lip balm, small tube of sunblock that doubles as a hand cream, cash, a pair of flip-flops or cute flats and something to layer like a lightweight kimono. I also wear comfortable shoes but if they ever get uncomfortable for some reason I use my change of shoes. 

Note: I usually share my load with my companion. I usually let them carry the camera and an umbrella. Is that bad? I love having those things but hate carrying them!

Be present and enjoy it
Use your phone for limited times or periods and don't focus so much on capturing memories to post on social media that you forget to live out the memories. My husband and I, along with other friends have truly made wonderful memories by exploring new places together. It brings us closer because we are making memories that we can share forever. 

Some things will not turn out the way you planned but at the end of the day choose what is truly important. 






Check reviews
When visiting a new city or a new restaurant we often check online reviews. Before my visit to a new city I usually put it out there that I will be in a certain city in case people have suggestions. We also check our TripAdvisor App for some reviews and even suggestions. When I went back home I started following a hashtag on Instagram that actually led me to discover many beautiful coffee shops that had opened since I left. The hashtag is #montrealcafecrawl. 






We loved visiting this cafe whose owner is also the designer of this beautiful space. You can clearly see that they're an artist. I ordered the brew of the day which is available in a full cup or half a cup. They also have a light lunch menu that I did not get to try and a small dedicated area to sell coffee related equipment and some art. I bought these prints there. 

Where do you plan to go next? Do you have any suggestions on plan it more efficiently and make it even more enjoyable? Do tell in the comment section below!!! Also, next week we have a special guest post by author and blogger Amanda from Heartbeet Kitchen. Can't wait!!!

Quotable Monday | Inspirational Tweets Week No. 4



Happy Monday darlings!

I love the feeling of a fresh start that comes with Mondays, even though I am often tempted to try and stretch my weekend as much as possible by having an extra slow start in the morning. However, I am hoping and planning for this week to be as productive as this past week. Today, I am back with more Twittables that you can simply share directly from this blog!

I almost finished reading my issue no. 8 of Darling Magazine, in preparation for the new one that is in the mail. That magazine is so full of inspiration, thought out articles and just such a creative and deep thread of thought from beginning to end. 







I am planning a week with a few DIY's that I've been holding off on  and a faith post that I am excited about. 

Have a great week! XOXO

5 Reasons to keep blogging

Dear darling readers!

Today I am writing a letter to each one of you, to thank you and to let you know how you have encouraged me and given me reasons to keep writing throughout this whole year. I certainly love hearing about how my words impact your life. I've enjoyed meeting some of you in different parts of the country and hearing you share with joy which part of what I've written has stood out to you. While I love that cyberconnectivity that we share, you have done so much more than that. 

Ongoing, steep, creative, learning curve

What am I saying? This is not only a steep learning curve for creativity but for everything really! By you coming to my blog and my social media, I feel indebted to share and produce material that not only reflects my style in the best way possible but also the message that I carry. A year ago I could only imagine of the opportunities that have come from having this platform, but I also did not know how much I would enjoy putting so many hours into packaging what I want to say to you via carefully thought out pictures and words. Your presence makes me want to constantly keep exploring and pushing my creative boundaries. It's a win-win really!

Giving me a voice 

Blogging has given me plenty of opportunities to write, which has definitely made me happy and has helped me develop a (constantly evolving) style or tone with which I like to share my stories and posts. The fact that you pass by here and take the time to read actually turns internet noise into an actual voice that is heard and that is empowering. Thank you. 

Live the little things and finding ways to celebrate them

Other bloggers will understand when I say that we are constantly looking for ways to document things that happen in our lives because we are thinking ahead for possible blog content. There has to obviously be a healthy balance in that but by doing that something wonderful has occurred. I see how my eye is now trained to look for beauty, significance and joy in the smallest of pleasures and blessings. I now see "living with purpose" and "being happy" more like an accumulation of many happy moments along the way. I see how our online life can sometimes lead people to imagine that it is just that, what we decide to share, but it is not. Social media and blogs are such a small part of who we are as individuals and we definitely have our own struggles and we are not always at our most photogenic moment. That being said, I love that sharing daily with you has helped me focus on the beauty of simply being alive and try to capture snippets of it to encourage and inspire others. 

From readers to friends

I can't even begin to explain how full I feel by the connections and strong bonds I have developed with some of you. I appreciate every letter, card, message and cute, care packages that you have sent. Every time I receive something I do my little "happy dance". I appreciate the fact that you have trusted me with your stories, that you take time to send me videos, articles, other blogger's links so that I can get inspired and share. I love that you do that and please, keep it coming!

Since this is such a special thing to me, and since we've talked about it on social media I would like to invite any of you that would like to be pen pals with me for the month of September 2014, please send me an email to: Nuanceandbubbles@gmail.com

More courageous than I thought

Blogging has been on of the most brave things I have done. Just like any other creative person, I create my content (read spend lots of hours planning, creating, snapping pictures, editing) just because I love it and by the time I have to publish, terror creeps in. What if people don't like it? What if this is absolutely irrelevant to anyone's life? Then, I remember the reason for which I started this blog. First because uplifting others (especially young women) is a passion that I have. I love to help others live with a little more intention, by celebrating the smallest details in life, addressing matters of the heart from the point of view of the One who created it and share my faith journey. Second, because I needed a creative outlet, especially during this past year of my life which has been one of the hardest but most rewarding.

Here's a quote from a book I love and that is really the motto behind every piece that I write

"

We love each other, because He {God} loved us first

" (1John 4:19)

Coups de Coeur | August


Hello September!

Just like that darlings, we are in a brand new month (time to turn the page of that gorgeous calendar). There are so many things I love about September, my favorite being how Fall announces its arrival; with subtle hints like a change in temperature or leaves slowly embracing a new color. Living on a tropical Island, we experience a slight change but nothing too drastic. In other words, we can still hit the beach while everyone is shifting their wardrobes to cozy knits and finding pumpkin everything (think Starbucks), which I am not going to lie, makes me a bit nostalgic. Today I am sharing a monthly roundup of some of my favorite things (Coups de coeur) that I either discovered or simply enjoyed in the month of August. 

To start, here is a compilation of my favorite Instagram snaps. Welcome to all new followers that have joined the party and the daily devotional discussions. I am truly growing through your input and love reading and looking at your own IG. 


From left to right ♥ 
1 | Published 2 Photography Posts to help guide anyone interested in improving their Instagram plus my favorite picture editing apps for my blog.
2 |  Lots of serenading this month. Read more about it here.
3 |  I contributed content for two magazines! If you missed it and want to take a look, check out the "Secret Garden" article in Ardent Magazine and "3 Limeade Iced Lollies" in Cellar Door Magazine. As you know, I am a regular contributor for Ardent Magazine and truly love it. The two girls behind it have such a great vision, a great eye for content. They've gathered a great team of collaborators and are the sweetest. Follow the magazine on Instagram and keep up with what's new.
4 |  Your typical Palm picture that comes with the blessing of living on a tropical island. Some of the things I see during my run.
5 |  How can I explain how much we love belgian waffles? Here is yet another picture of the many ways we like to eat them.
6 |  Published a Faith post that gained a lot of attention called "Let it go!" which I wrote from the comfort of my bed that day.
7 |  Picture taken as we walked out of the office where I received the official document that makes this Canadian girl a permanent resident in the US of A.
8 |  We spent a few days in Orlando this past month and took time to relax with our family. Thankful for that awesome bed.
9 |  Last but not least, our homemade pizza day tradition has gotten an upgrade since I discovered Darling Magazine's peach pizza recipe.






My Coups de coeurs (french for favorite things) of August

I celebrated this this blog's first birthday this month! And to thank each one of you, I am (still) hosting a giveaway that you can be part of (until Sept. 5, 2014). I am very thankful for all of you that read this blog, share and interact on different social media platforms with me. I truly enjoy it and I feel very blessed that you let me share my heart with you. A HUGE thank you!

At the beginning of the month of August I also had the pleasure to be the guest judge of the photography project under the hashtag #livethelittlethings on Instagram put together by Igers: Megan Magers and Brandi. Here are the 4 pictures I picked for that week. 

♥ For a second time, I am happy to announce that my photography is being used to illustrate the current "She Reads Truth" (Hosea) devotional plan on  Instagram. I am so so happy since they have honestly been such a blessing to my life and if you are a reader of this blog you may know that already since I talk a lot about them. 

 3 new books on my list, two of which are recipe books! Weird right?! In the past year I have truly fallen in love with food photography and food blogs. So when great bloggers write a book, well, I crack and put it on my list of books to buy and read (I presently have like 20 books on the list, help!) Smitten with Squash (a new friend blogger is the author), Top with Cinnamon (an 18 year old is the author! What?!) and Happy Handmade Home (My favorite blogger has done it again). I will write more about each book when I get them, I promise!

♥ These 2 Youtube videos had me cracking up! (First & Second)

♥ Best Pin advice ever! 

Read this article, it really gave me hope. 

♥ I discovered this magazine (as you know I am a magazine junkie) and their shop that offers cute journals and totes. I am looking forward to their full blown launch this Fall. 

♥ I am late to the party, I know, but I bought Moriah Peters "Brave" CD and I am presently jamming to "You Carry Me". Have you heard of it? I am loving it.
