A few days ago some of my closest friends a.k.a my master mind group were having one of our early morning group conversations which started with my proposal of “killing ourselves” by going out the night before a seminar we’re attending together. One of them immediately jumped in on the invite. That’s just how he [...]
I'd like to dedicate this piece to my dear friend. She called me last night -we hadn't talked on the phone or in person for at least 2-3 months- to tell me how much my previous post. This meant a lot, as this is exactly the reason I do this. But then she asked me a question and it was a question I had asked myself many times. How do I keep going when everything is going to shit? Had she asked me this 4 years ago, I would've told her: by surviving. But now, in 2017, I know how to keep going even when everything seems to fall apart and I want to share it with you.
I wrote this post on October 2nd. I contemplated about writing this post, because I don’t like to talk about my downs. They make me feel vulnerable. And I hate feeling vulnerable, but fact is, I want my blog to stay real. And it wouldn’t be real if there aren’t any downs. For the past few weeks, I’ve experienced many ups.

I'll be taking you to one of the most memorable days of my life: my sister's wedding, where I held my first public speech, my niece stole the show and I caught the bouquet (YES BIH). Mind you, today it's the two-month anniversary of her wedding! Also we're going sailing with my best friend, going BTS of my beloved partner in crime's photoshoot and you're gonna meet some of my family members.
Or as a mermaid, whichever mystical creature floats your boat. But I went to Curacao keeping in mind that I was gonna sparkle like a unicorn. And no less. Why? Because for the past few months I had to look as normal as possible (whatever the hell that means) for job interviews. So I had to refrain from bold and long nails, crazy hair colors or outrageous hairstyles. After being turned down so often, because of my vacation plans (which I totally understand), I felt like I needed to turn my shine on again. How? I told my braidstylist that I wanted a hidden rainbow, and my nailtech that I wanted nails to match my rainbow hair. I was so ready to go to Curacao and have a great time. Why don’t you take a look at what I did and where I went during my first few days on the island.
