A Peek Of My Week.....

A little Window shopping at Barneys Co-op

This week I have been super busy with my Internship and school. It snowed on Friday and as you can see in the picture I wore my cozy Uggs. I also did some grocery shopping of course at my favorite place on earth Trader Joe's. I took a picture of this door on the west village.  I just love the cute neighborhoods in NYC,  most of them have lovely hardware on the doors. I just love doors that have that classic style like this one. It gives it a touch of traditional look to the homes. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I am going to rest a bit.

My Lovely Dad.......

Photo from

I can't believe that it has gone by 5 years without kissing, hugging or talking to one of my best friends, MY DAD. I miss you dad more than ever. You were and are an inspiration. Thanks for being my cane in times when I felt like I couldn't keep going on. There is not a day I don't remember you, it seems like yesterday, my conscious is at peace knowing I was a good daughter to you. I LOVE YOU DAD FROM EVER YOU ARE. I thank GOD everyday because thanks to him I met the most fascinating wonderful person in this world that was with me for 17 years of my life. This post is a little different maybe more in a personal level. My dad passed away five years ago of Lymphoma, I was a senior in High School. It was really hard for me to understand that my dad, my best friend had passed away. Now that I am 22 years old, I am more mature and missed him dearly but understand that It was time for him to go. Today has been a little bit difficult for me because every time this day comes around I get the flashbacks of the call from the hospital telling me that my dad had passed away. It is really hard to loose someone close to you but losing a parent it's painful knowing you won't ever again hold his hand, kiss him goodbye and have family vacations like we used to. The only thing I can say he was a hard working man that wanted to give always the best to his family and friends.

XOXO, Andrea

Can I live in My Dream Closet

As Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and The City told Mr. Big "Just get me a big closet".  I don't think I will ever forget those lines. I am die hard Sex and The City fan, but I am a bigger fan of  Carrie Bradshaw. I think out of all characters hers is the most real and unique and all those love stories we went through with her just amazing. When I saw the movie and saw the closet that they had built on the Penthouse . I was not surprised because I know she had a big love for fashion, clothing and SHOES. And just like her, one of my biggest dreams is to have my DREAM Closet I want a closet fully organized with all of my wardrobe. I am obsessed with having all of my clothing pieces and shoes organized that way I know where is everything placed. I have a crush on big beautiful closets that have plenty of space to fill it up and keep shopping. My mom tells me all the time that when I have my dream closet I will end up in a rehabilitation center for being a shopaholic. I just laugh about it but I  mean it is kind of true.  I was torturing myself searching online for big beautiful closets and these were the one's that I found. They are just breath taking.


XOXO, Andrea

Add To Your Wardrobe A Pop Of Color

While shopping in the city for some school supplies, I went to some stores and I was happy to see a lot of color for this winter and spring of 2013. I saw many yellow tones and navy blue. It's a perfect combination. It had a touch of sailor feeling. I also saw many people wearing colorful bags just to add a statement to their outfit. It was like if I was walking in a world full of neon and bright colors. I took some pictures in the different stores that I enter. The First picture of the Yellow pants are in Forever 21, The Flats are from J crew and the crossbody orange bag was from a young woman that enter an art store I just had to snapped a picture.

I love films, especially the old Hollywood one's of my favorite movie is Breakfast At Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn.

Add A Touch of Nature To Your Home

 Their is a saying " When Life gives you Lemons make lemonade" Well since I am a interior design nerd I always say when my place looks plain just add flowers. Trust me it brings life to your home. It lightness up everything and it gives it that touch of nature, plus flowers smell amazing, so your place will smell great. Here are some pictures that I found online. I love how the flowers become the protagonist of each room. You don't have to buy the most expensive flowers. I usually buy my flowers at Trader Joes or Whole Foods every time I go grocery shopping, they are like 10 bucks. I also get them at my local farmers market.My favorite Flowers are Peonies, Hydrangea and Roses. especially if they are pink !

The Nude is back At The Golden Globes

Amy Adams In Marchesa
 Megan Fox In Dolce and Gabbana
Amanda Seyfried In Givenchy
 Hayden Panettiere In Roberto Cavalli

Kerry Washington In Miu Miu
Lea Michele In Elie Saab

Okay, I am not even going to lie. I admit that I watch the Golden Globes because I only want to see  what the celebrities are going to wear on the Red Carpet. This years Golden Globe were just perfect. When I saw all of these celebrities wearing beautiful NUDE dresses, I got so happy.  For me Nude is the new Black. I mean you can wear anything with nude and everyone knows of the trick if you want to rock long legs just wear a pair of nude pumps. But lets concentrate on the Golden Globes. I love the different shades of nude, my favorite is the Marchesa dress that Amy Adams wore. I love the mermaid style it suits her perfectly she looks divine. Also the other celebrities that are also rocking the nude dresses if you notice that most of the dresses have LACE which is another major trend. This red carpet was full of Glamour as usual but I was just amazed by seeing all of these chic, classy, elegant dresses. What is your favorite dress?

Powder Rooms and It's Elegance


Have I mention before how obsessed I am with powder rooms. I know I say the word obsessed so much on my other post but I truly am obsessed with Crisp, Clean, Traditional and Elegant Powder rooms. I always tell myself when I buy my first home one day the first thing I am going to make sure is that I have a nice laundry room and a gorgeous Powder room. I just love the saying that word it sounds so chic and elegant. You know us ladies always have to go and check on our makeup or hair. I always think of the classic films from the 1950's the ladies would go to the powder room to wash their hands and check on their makeup. I found these gorgeous photos on Decor Pad, and Instantly I though to myself I have to do a post about Powder Rooms.

New Year, New Body

New Year, New Body

 Workout Pants / Running Sneakers / Water Bottle / Dumbbells / Yoga Mat / Hair Ties / Tee

The famous New Year resolution is to loose weight . I have included this year not to loose weight but to be healthy and fit. I think is time for me to change my lifestyle from the way I eat to the way I workout. I admit that I am lazy sometimes to get up and workout but when I see that I am loosing weight I get more motivated. In this post I have the typical girly outfit which it's a big motivation for me . I like to look cute when I workout I feel much better and overall i feel with more energy. I know it might sound a bit ridiculous but hey what ever makes you keep going on is going to help more. These are the basics for a good workout the Yoga mat for when I am doing crunches or have to lay down it's great because I don't hurt my back. the water bottle cannot be forgotten and a couple of hair ties because I really hate when I am doing some Cardio and my hair is all over the place. So what is your plan this year to stay FIT? Remember that is okay to indulge once a week in something you like its a combination of play hard and enjoying life.

Peplum Trend Came to Stay

Peplum Trend Came to Stay 
I am absolutely obsessed with the peplum trend. This trend have been around for a couple of months and Its still going on. There is something about this lady like trend that makes your figure give that touch of elegance and sophistication. You can wear  this trend dressed up or down. I think the best way to wear it is to let the peplum shine alone. In order to not over kill your outfit I suggest if your going to wear a peplum top to pair it with a pencil skirt or straight pants, even skinny jeans will work fine. This trend is good for the skinnier woman that want more curves or the curvier woman that want to accentuate the waistline.
Don't be afraid to give it a try !
Have Fun !

Ballerina Outfit Inspiration

Ballerina outfit style

I Once wished to be a Ballerina. I remember being five and telling my mom I wanted to be a ballerina dancer, because my friend in school attended ballet. It only lasted for a week. I only attended  3 classes and that was all. I remember my mom being upset at me because she had spent money on my tulle and ballet shoes. I was fascinated more by their outfit and hair style then learning the dance routine. Now that I am an adult I am still fascinated of the Ballet lifestyle. I mean it's so elegant and classy. I was searching some stores and I saw a couple of tulle skirts and shoes that go together with the "Ballet Trend". I got inspired and here are some touches that you can include in your daily lifestyle like the Chloe flats they are adorable definitely on my wish list, You can always do the ballerina bun. I love to do this bun for dinners and days that I want to have my hair up. I hope you get inspired like I did and include a little of a ballet style in your daily life.
I am really in love with this Tulle skirt from Anthropologie It's on my wish list. Check it out !
