This two lines are created by Beatriz C. Garcia that is a Landscape Architect.  One year ago she decide to quit to her office work to work from home to dedicate to what is her passion, plants and draw.

BIJA- it means the mantra that balances all the energetic points of the human body, its word attracts a force of serenity and good with everything.

Lam_Art- it means the existence on earth. It is the sound that synchronizes with existence on earth and feeling that it belongs.

Estas dos lineas son creadas por Beatriz C. Garcia, Arquitecta Paisajista.  Hace un año ella decidió dejar su trabajo de oficina para trabajar desde su casa en lo que le apasiona, las plantas y el dibujo.   

BIJA- significa el mantra  que balancea todos los puntos energéticos del cuerpo humano, su palabra atrae una fuerza de serenidad y el bien con todo.

Lam_Art- significa existencia en la tierra.  Es el sonido que sincroniza con la existencia en la tierra y sentirse que pertenece.

My Little Family

Hi SS Followers!

 

I present you… my little family!  Usually you don’t see the 3 of us on the blog, but I want to share with you a little bit of our story.   We had been married for almost 7 amazing years and have a baby boy Mauricio of 1 year old.   Mauricio is the best thing that happened to us.  Me and my husband dream and talk about having a child and when we saw the positive results we were so excited, happy and nervous.  Was a dream come true… but when we hold him for the first time there is where our dream was really come true!

For us is really important to spend time as a family.  Sometimes is challenging because my hubby works long hours and is difficult to find time to spend together.  But for us family is always first.  My husband is my best friend, the best daddy and the best provider for his family.  I’m grateful and blessed for my family!

Acción de Gracias esta a la vuelta de la esquina y todos sabemos que es una gran celebración.  Me encanta hornear y más para la época de otoño e invierno.  Pero se que no a todos les gusta hornear, no tienen el tiempo o como en Puerto Rico que no toda la población tiene energía eléctrica.  Les voy a compartir unas recetas divertidas, fáciles y que no necesitan hornear de postres que encontré en Pinterest para el Día de Acción de Gracias.      Estas recetas son actividades divertidas y excelentes para incluir a los niños y a toda la familia. 

Espero que disfruten estas ideas!

Blogger Mom / Mamá Bloguera

post-momblogger

*I write this articule almost two months ago part of a collaboration with the “Mujeres con Visión” digital magazine.  Unfortunately due to the passage of Hurricane Maria the publication could not be carried out.  Here I share my articule I hope you like it.*

During this month I am barely 6 months after starting my “blog” and I am very happy with what I have achieved so far. When I made the decision to start my blog my child was 7 months old and at the beginning it was difficult for me to find time to create content. Although I have always been an organized person I have learned how to maximize my time, which has helped me with my role as blogger and mother.

Being a blogger or influencer is not an easy task, you must be clear about what your concept is and make sure you are passionate about it. It is not only taking beautiful photos, you must create content that is striking and interesting for your followers. This involves spending a lot of time on social media, so I try to create a balance in my daily routine. For example, if I am going to write an article for my page I try to do it in the moments when my child takes his nap of the day or after that he falls asleep at night. Even though I am with my child all day, it is important for me to share with him and sit down to teach him new things. Another important point in the world of bloggers and influencers is that you have to be patient as fans will not arrive overnight. The more followers you have in your social media the better, but it is very important that your followers are real.

In my blog I write about fashion and lifestyle, in which I speak of my experience as a mother. In my articles I cover topics on fashion, accessories, new products, home decoration among others. The purpose of my blog is to motivate other women to follow and fulfill their goals. That when you become a mother you do not have to give up your dreams. My child is my inspiration to be ever better and that he sees that everything you proposes with effort can be achieved. I know that when you become a mother we no longer have the same time we had before to do the things we like, but that is not why we should neglect. We must show the world that we are still capable, productive and intelligent women.

Being a mother is the most wonderful gift of life, but we must not forget that we are also women with vision. It is important to understand that we can be mothers and do the most we passionate at the same time.

Be Creative, be you…

* Escribí este articulo hace casi dos meses como parte de una colaboración  para la revista digital Mujeres con Visión.  Lamentablemente por el paso del huracán Maria no se pudo llevar acabo la publicación.  Aquí les comparto mi escrito, espero que les guste.*

Durante este mes apenas cumplo 6 meses de haber comenzado mi “blog” y estoy muy contenta con lo que he logrado hasta ahora. Cuando tome la decisión de comenzar mi blog mi niño tenía 7 meses de nacido y al principio se me hacia difícil encontrar tiempo para crear contenido. Aunque siempre he sido una persona organizada he aprendido a como maximizar mi tiempo, lo cual me ha ayudado con mi rol de blogger y madre.

Ser blogger o influencer no es tarea fácil, debes tener claro cual es tu concepto y asegurarte que es lo que te apasiona. No es solo tomar fotos bonitas, debes crear contenido que sea llamativo e interesante para tus seguidores. Esto conlleva pasar mucho tiempo en las redes sociales, por eso trato de crear un balance en mi rutina diaria. Por ejemplo, si voy a escribir un artículo para mi página trato de hacerlo en los momentos en que mi niño toma su siesta del día o luego que se duerme en la noche. Aunque estoy con mi niño todo el día, es importante para mi compartir con él y sentarme a enseñarle cosas nuevas. Otro punto importante dentro del mundo de los bloggers e influencers es que hay que tener paciencia ya que los seguidores no van a llegar de la noche a la mañana. Mientras más seguidores tengas en tus redes sociales mejor, pero es muy importante que tus seguidores sean reales.

En mi blog escribo sobre moda y estilo de vida, en el cual hablo de mi experiencia como mamá. En mis artículos cubro temas sobre accesorios de moda, nuevos productos, decoración de hogar entre otros. El propósito de mi blog es motivar a otras mujeres a seguir y cumplir sus metas. Que al convirte en madre no tienes que abandonar tus sueños. Mi niño es mi inspiración a ser cada vez mejor y que él vea que todo lo que uno se propone con esfuerzo se puede lograr. Se que al convertirnos en madre ya no tenemos el mismo tiempo que teníamos antes para hacer las cosas que nos gustan, pero no por eso debemos descuidarnos. Hay que demostrarle al mundo que seguimos siendo mujeres capaces, productivas e inteligentes.

Ser madre es el regalo mas maravilloso de la vida, pero no debemos olvidar que también somos mujeres con visión. Es importante comprender que podemos ser madres y hacer lo mas que nos apasiona al mismo tiempo.

Kids Comfort Kit

Hi all!

As been a while since I write my last post, as many know Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricane Maria.  We still don’t have internet or phone service in the most part of the island, no electricity and no water.  Right now the island is going thru difficult times, but we are positive that we are going to recover.  We are grateful for all those people that are sending donations and positive thoughts.

During and after a natural disaster for the kids can be uncomfortable and cause them some stress.  That’s why I recommend to create a kids comfort kit as it can help them become distracted and calm during and after the emergency.  You can customize the kit according their age and what they like. To create the kit you will need a small plastic container or a small back pack something easy to carry if you have to move from your house.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money to prepared this kit you can find great things on a Dollar Store.

Here are some things that you can get to create you kid kit.
Small Puzzles
Small Coloring books & crayons
Small Stuffed Animals
Blank paper or a small Journal
Small Kids Books
Small Fun toys

I hope that this help to all the mom’s out there.

Be creative, be you…

Hola a todos!

A pasado mucho tiempo desde escribí mi último “post”, pero como muchos saben Puerto Rico recibió la visita del huracán Maria.   En gran parte de la isla todavía no tenemos internet, servicio telefónico, electricidad y servicio de agua.  En estos momentos Puerto Rico esta pasando por momentos difíciles, pero estamos positivos que nos vamos a recuperar #puertoricoselevanta.  Estamos muy agradecidos con todas aquellas personas que han enviado donaciones y pensamientos positivos. 

Durante y después de un desastre natural para los niños puede ser incómodo y causarle un poco de estrés.   Es por esto que recomiendo que preparen un “Kids Comfort Kit”, ya que puede ayudarlos a distraerse y estar mas calmados durante y luego de la emergencia.  Puedes personalizar el “kit” de acuerdo con su edad y con cosas que le gusten.   Para crear el “kit” vas a necesitar una caja de plástico pequeña o una mochila pequeña, algo fácil de llevar por si tienes que desalojar tu casa.  No necesitas gastar mucho en la creación de este “kit” puedes encontrar buenas cosas en “Dollar Stores”.

Aquí les doy unos ejemplo de artículos que pueden utilizar para crear el “kit”.
Rompecabezas pequeño
Libro de pintar y crayolas pequeñas
Peluches pequeños
Páginas en blanco y una libreta pequeña
Libros para niños
Juguetes pequeños

Espero que les guste!

My First Year as a MOM

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

 

You are pregnant!   Are three words that so many woman want to hear on some point in their lives. When me and my husband knew that we were expecting we were so happy and scared at the same time. We did not want anything happen to our little one.

One year ago a give birth my first child… my little boy Mauricio and was the best day of our life. Be a mom is something that you can’t describe with only one word are so many emotions that invade you at the same time. When I hold my baby the first time I was thinking..”this is real”, “I had a baby”, “dreams come true”, “I’m a mom”.

Be a mom for the first time is beautiful, but at the same time is challenging. For more research, books, prenatal classes nothing will prepare you complete for this journey. In my case I left my full time job to be a home stay mom. I was happy that I will be with my baby all the time, but was difficult at the same time I’m not going to lie. The transition from work to be a home stay mom is not easy, I was use to wake up every day search for a outfit, put on some makeup and ready to go. But I don’t change anything, been with my baby for this year has been the best life experience. Every day I learn something new, is a adventure that never ends. Any time that my baby do something new I feel full of joy and sometimes cry. When Mauricio said for the first time “mama” I was so proud, excited and happy that I can’t believe it.

IMG_7981.jpg

 

I’m not the best mom, but I try my best every day. Teaching my baby to be kind, loving and respect others. The best advice that I can give to all first time moms is to live day by day, enjoy the time that you spend with your kids and take every experience as a learning process.

Me and my husband learn to appreciate more the little things and maximize our time as a family. We love our little boy with all of our heart and can’t imagine our life without him.

 

Be creative, be you…
