Reiki 1 Diploma

This is something I wanted to do for a while. Is that kind of things that is on your life to do list.

Reiki is healing with the Good Energy of the universe, through the imposition of your hands and intention. I'm not going to explain what Reiki is all about here, there is a bunch of info on the internet in case you are interested. 

I really have this desire of contributing in the healing process of this world. I don't know how exactly but I have a couple of ideas in my mind.

I have been through so much anxiety in my life, sometimes anxiety created for situations, and I always have believed my genetic predisposition plays a good roll too. What I'm learning (well not learning, because learning in theory is easy), I'm trying to really BE responsable for my own energy, which is an important aspect of the healing process...

What is ZAKKA style?

Mis lectores en español pueden leer éste mismo artículo en Al Estilo de Asia

Hello. For those who doesn't know yet what ZAKKA style is, today I'll dedicate this post to explain in detail what is it, because I love this style and so far I haven't found (at least not in english or spanish) a detailed post on the Internet that explain this style as detailed as I'm gonna do it here.

First of all I'll tell you what this style is to me, based on what I have observed. It is a style of Japanese origin that covers: home decoration, cafes, shops, fashion and crafts. It is a unique, creative and natural style, and for me even with a touch of magic.

Regarding decor details that make this style are:

♥︎ Light colors on the walls, preferably white to give more light and create more space. 
♥︎ Accents and unique handmade touches, but not anything handmade, it should be very simple and natural stuff, later I will show you what I mean.
♥︎ Forest things decoration, like rabbits, mushrooms, pine nuts, deers, etc, in fact this style is very related to Mori Girl Style.
♥︎ Polka dots or plaid designs. 
♥︎ The predominant material in this type of decor is wood either light or dark. 
♥︎ The color palette is very natural, earth tones, brown, white, beige, gray, light green, etc.. 
♥︎ Other items that go well with this style are: recycled glass jars, which can be used to store buttons or another craft stuff, strawberries, owls, decorative tapes (washi tape), matryoshka dolls, vintage things, such as cameras , plants, baskets, kewpie dolls, eiffel tower, doily, etc.

This style is very popular in Japan of course, but it is popular too in other places in Asia.

Here are some examples of this cute style:

Job Interview Outfit plus Shy Me

Two days ago I went to a cool job interview. It was hard and tired, not because of the interview itself but because of my nerves, at least I smiled a lot and I did the best that I could. But I think they could have noticed my shyness maybe.  photo o0020002011602344388.gif And that is not a good thing specially if the work is related with the fashion world.

I am not always like that, I can be outgoing and fun too, but it depends of the situation and the people I am with, and I hate that. It's not my fault to have a chameleon aura. I wish I could always shine with my own light, no matter people or events.

Anyway I know I don't have a choice, but being strong and keep working and moving on.

I have been working in my online business and I'm doing ok, but anyway I hope they call me.

My Little Pony Toys Collectibles Haul

Watching at kawaii rooms on youtube and following people like this girl on Instagram affects me so much hehe. I'm becoming more interested in collecting kawaii things. Today I dreamed, wrote and drew about my dream craft magical room.

I wasn't planning to get all of these collectibles, I went crazy actually, the true is that I just wanted to go to see some monster high dolls and I promised to myself I was not going to get any until I get a job, but then I saw all of these MLP and kawaii stuff and I couldn't resist. I already had pinkie pie equestria doll in my wish list and I was going to buy it online anyway so...

My New Kikki.k Planner Dreaming Journal

Hi guys. I see that gradually I have gained more followers here in my little blog. I know there are so many options of alike things to read out there, so thank you so much for picking me as one of your blog reading lists.

I want to share with you one of my newest planners. This one is a famous and loved by so many,  kikki.k large planner. I love everything about it, the size, the beautiful pastel mint color with little gold polka dots, and I even love how it smells. Sometimes just seeing at it could help to get myself motivated.

Oh, and I got a pen with pink hearts too

I wasn't sure of how I was going to use this beauty at the beginning. Since last year I had read this post from Rhiannon, she always has the coolest things to share. I read this while I was in New York, and I decided I wanted to try this too. When my kikki.k arrived like a month  ago it was the perfect time to start this and I decided to use it as My Dream Journal, which was also a great idea I read in Suzannah Conway blog as she uses an A5 filofax as her Dream Journal. 

A Dream Journal! What a great, cute, creative, awesome idea right? 

I printed out the pages (which are beautiful btw), two to a page, cut the paper in half and hold punch the pages, it took me a while to do this. Then I took advantage that I was home alone, and started with the Magic. I made some english breakfast tea, lighted a candle, spread some gemstones around the table, and started working on it. 

I really liked how my pages turned out. And it was very fun 
and inspired to work in this project. 

Now. I'm using my weekly pages in this planner to take note every night, 
of what I did everyday that gets me closer to my goals.  
And I really like how the first decorated pages turned out. I love how neon and pastels look together.

Filofax and hobonichi ほぼ日手帳 Inspiration

I've been so busy later, working in my little home based online business, but I'm also looking for a regular job since I want to take advantage that I have a major in International Marketing.

I already went for an interview and it is possible that I get a really nice job I'm interested in. I really hope I get it.

And something that keeps me motivated is creative journaling and filofaxing. I really struggle to last in day jobs, because my lack of focus, stress tolerance and because I haven't find something that I really like. I really really hope it works this time and I have a good feeling about it. I know it's gonna be issues, jobs are about solving problems after all right? But thanks God, I feel stronger and more confident than before.

It's not intelligence or preparation what it matters the most to succeed. I'm convinced because of experience, reading and observation that the most important thing in life it is to BELIVE IN YOURSELF, and that is what I'm focusing in now, more that anything else.

Ok. Enough motivational speaking. I want to share with you some of the little things that make me happy. Some of my hobonichi, filofax pages, and stuff. If you follow my instagram account this pictures are old for you.

He estado ocupada con mi negocio en linea, además de que estoy buscando trabajo ya que quiero sacar provecho de mi carrera en Mercadotecnia Internacional. 

Ayer aplique para un trabajo para el cual estoy muy interesada y realmente espero conseguir.

Algo muy simple pero que me da motivación, es escribir en diarios creativos estilo japoneses, coreanos, como hobonichi y planear en las lindas agendas inglesas filofax. Más adelante prometo un post para hablar de cada una de ellas. Ya que probablemente no sabes lo qué son, y es algo muy creativo y lindo que te puede interesar. Volviendo con el tema del trabajo, es algo con lo que realmente batallo por mi falta de concentración, y baja tolerancia al estrés, y porque no he encontrado algo que realmente me guste. Realmente espero que  esta vez funcione. Tengo un buen presentimiento. Se que va a haber dificultades, pero después de todo el trabajo en si es para resolver problemas y obtener los resultados deseables. Gracias a Dios últimamente me siento más fuerte y segura de mi misma.

Realmente no es la inteligencia o preparación, lo que más importa para triunfar. Estoy convencida por experiencia, lectura y observación, que lo más importante en la vida es CREER EN UNO MISMO, y es en lo que me estoy concentrando ahora más que nada.

Bueno. Suficiente motivación por el momento. Quiero compartir con ustedes algunas de las pequeñas cosas que me inspiran y motivan. Algunas de mis páginas de hobonichi y filofax. Si me sigues en instagram esto no será nuevo para ti. 

The first filofax pages of 2014

Rochester 5 Winter Wonderland

This is a late post. But I want you to see the beautiful pictures. Oh. And I want to wish you a happy new year too. Have you made your resolution already?

Well. Right now I'm back home, we stayed one day long at airports and airplanes given the delayed flights because of the ice age usa is going through right now hehe. Did you know niagara falls got frozen? and that they haven't expirienced such a low temperatures in 118 years? but thanks God, the pilots and all the hard working people we made it home safely.

Well these pictures are form one of the last days we stayed in Rochester.  One day before we had a snow storm all day long, so when we went outside everything was so white and beautiful, whenever you looked at semed like a postcard picture. The pretty white houses covered with snow, some of them still adorned with red christmas ornaments and the branches and pines covered with snow, so pretty.

Ok. But let's the pictures speak by themselves.

Rochester 4 Niagara Falls New York

I went to niagara falls New York with my family on december 28. It was extremelly cold and windy specially by the falls. 
I got some pretty postcards at the souvenir store for my collection (I just started to collect postcards from the world) and some for penpals. 
We took a nice tour, and I took lots of beutiful pictures.
We had lunch at the Hard Rock cafe across the street from Niagara Falls. It is the biggest and nicest Hard Rock I've ever been. 
I got a pretty black t-shirt from Hard Rock Cafe. 
I had the classic burger and a root beer for lunch. 
We came back to Rochester the same day and went to starbucks to get hot chocolate. It was freezing. 
It was a nice family trip.
