May | My Coups de Coeur

hello Darlings,

Yes! Believe it or not May is ending, but it is not leaving us without great memories. I have been reading great monthly wrap ups from many other bloggers and so I am starting one this month as an extension of that. I have my own "goodies" that I have discovered during the month and I will share them with you at the end of each month from now on.  

Without further ado, here is a grid of my favorite May snapshots.

1 | My feed has one weekly food snapshot of some sort and it's usually breakfast because we eat breakfast at any time of the day. 

2 | Yes, I did an entire photo shoot just to feature my new kimono. I love the colors so much and I have to keep myself from wearing it constantly. I got mine from Forever 21. 

3 | This month I hosted a jewelry party for the amazing company called 31 Bits. I am in love with not only their products but also their mission and what they stand for. If you are looking to add a pop of color to your wardrobe this summer and simultaneously help change people's lives, check them out!

4 | This picture was the one featured in Darling Magazine's Instagram feed. That magazine just happens to be one of my favorites. I just love the community they have built around it. If you want to know why I took that picture you can read more about it on my Instagram

5 | Yep, that little person in the pink dress is me! I got to stand in that awesome place in front of the Cabo Rojo light house at the South Western tip of Puerto Rico. My husband took me to the dreamiest location to celebrate our anniversary (I will share all the pictures next week). I am in love with this place (and with the man obviously), as a matter of fact, I wanted to stay there!

6 | To many, 1 year of marriage is nothing but we are so happy that I may or may not have overgram pictures of us and our wedding. In any case, we are so blessed to have each other and though we lived many scary adventures this year, it still feel like it flew by. 

:: Other exciting Features ::

Ministry She Reads truth, which I have written about many times, used my photography to illustrate one of their Bible reading plans and I was so honored that they asked. 

Also, thanks to project Pick it (an Instagram feed that dedicates itself to share other people's stories and unique moments) for featuring  the picture of my sister and I. 

♥ Discovered this awesome blog post (Wonder and wandering) and the blogger has become my pen pal (if you can call email communication that). She is sweet and we just feel like we are friends already. 

Hosted my first Twitter #lbloggers Chat this past Wednesday and met so many awesome bloggers. Our topic was "What makes a blogger Inspirational?"- I am in love with words so doing a word check during the chat was awesome. Join the chat on Wednesdays at 2:00 PM (EST) or 7:00 PM (UK)

Two great ladies passed away this month. One was an unknown hero and a friend of mine the other was Maya Angelou. Here is a guide to her most beloved books. 

♥ Instagram crush lately...

♥ I am not sure what people did with short videos before this one, but I don't want to know

♥ I am itching to try this genius Ikea hack!

♥ This blog is new to me, and I have to admit that I have spent an unhealthy amount of time swooning  (probably more like drooling) over this blogger photography and actually reading her funny captions and posts. Well done! 

♥ I am obsessed with Garance Doré's collaboration paper products with Anna Riflebond. I got quite a few items already and I am now looking forward to her wallpaper

Studied the book of James this whole month and still feel like I can continue, I participated in the #lampandlight reading challenge (on Instagram) this month and I gained so much from it. 

What are you excited about? Please share the link to your monthly wrap ups, or weekly if you have them or feel free to simply comment about what you are up to. 



This blog joins 31 Bits for a house party | Bilingual

Hello Darlings!

Today is SO special because I finally get to talk about the reason I am hosting a jewelry party for 31 Bits.

I was at a retreat this past weekend and one of the speakers talked about using our "bit" to make a change in this world. This resonated with me since this little project was already in the making. 

As many of you know, this organization is dear to my heart and I have written about them before. However on May 10 I will be hosting a party where people will be able to purchase their jewelry right here in Puerto Rico. 

I have been wondering how I was going to do my part in order to support organizations that fight to end poverty and slavery, especially among women. The task seemed daunting but I still wanted to do more than just creating awareness via social media (with the red X). So when the opportunity arose, I jumped on it and I am inviting you to be part of it.  

On Saturday, May 10th (last minute Mother's Day shopping anyone?), I will have an open house from 10AM-1PM for EVERYONE that would like to come, browse and buy, however please make sure that you RSVP. We will be serving tasty sweets and I have invited a wonderful photographer to work our "mother-Daughter" Photo Booth! 

What are other ways in which you are changing your world and addressing these problems? I would love to hear about it. 

See you soon!

Hola queridas

Hoy es un día muy especial porque al fin puedo escribir sobre la razón por la cual decidí ser la anfitriona de una fiesta para la compañía 31 Bits

Estuve en un retiro este fin de semana que pasó y uno de los exponentes habló de cómo debemos usar "nuestra migaja" para provocar un cambio en nuestro entorno. Eso me llamó la atención ya que este proyecto ya estaba en marcha. 

Como algunos de ustedes saben, esta organización es muy especial para mí y ya he escrito sobre ellos en otro tiempo, pero el 10 de Mayo seré la anfitriona de  una venta de prendas en forma de una fiesta en la cual todos los que lo desean podrán comprar aquí mismo en Puerto Rico. 

Me había estado preguntando de cómo haría mi parte en cuanto a apoyar organizaciones que combaten la pobreza y la esclavitud. La tarea es abrumadora, pero igual quería hacer más que solo crear conciencia por medio de las redes sociales (con la X roja). Cuando se presentó la oportunidad, la tomé y ahora los invito a que usted sea parte de este movimiento también. 

El sábado, 10 de Mayo (compras para mamá de último minuto!) mi casa estará abierta de las 10AM a la 1PM para todos los que quieran venir, ver y comprar. Todos están invitados pero deben reservar. Estaremos sirviendo refrigerios dulces y he invitado a una fotógrafa para tomar fotos especiales de madres e hijas. 

De qué otras maneras estas tú cambiando tu entorno y combatiendo estos problemas? Me gustaría saberlo. 

Nos vemos pronto!
