A Job that makes you happy?

Hey guys, its been a while since I’ve made one of these honest posts and this topic is something that at the moment has been making me frustrates and unhappy. Finding a job that makes me happy or creating my own.

Have you ever felt like you can and want to do a little of everything and that you are good at a ton of things? Yes? well so do I. I’ve found myself in a bit of a pickle in the sense that I am already 28 and have no clue where to direct all my energy and creativity towards and make a living out of it. What I do know is that I am inclined to doing something that has to do with art, creativity and design, what I don’t have is a sense of direction, marketing or money to start to even experiment on things till they work out.

The ideal thing would be to just say I want, and have… but, this is real life and things don’t happen that easily and we have to work on figuring ourselves out and find our north. For some is just as easy as to get a job and do it and live a miserable work life, for others their path has been clear their whole lives, and then there is the kind like me, who is stuck in limbo with a ton of talent waiting to come out.

Hope you are the kind that has their future figured out and wish me luck on my journey to finding the job that will make me wake up everyday excited to start my day.

Kisses,

Mini Summer Vacation+Huge Salad Bar

Hey you guys! Last weekend I had the most amazing time in Punta Cana at this hotel called Dreams Punta Cana! It was amazing! It had a ton of vegan friendly food and drinks, the pool has Hugeee and it was super pretty and clean!  Here is a little video and pictures of my trip! ❤️

Why I’ve been MIA? well, here is why!

For the past couple of day I’ve been in an adjustment phase due a to huge decision I’ve taken that will change my life for ever and is that… I’ve gone VEGAN you guys!

Let me tell you a little bit more of how that came to be. When June started, it became a really slow month of work at the place where I worked leaving me with a lot of time to watch YouTube and read a ton. so a as days went by and I watched videos, in my YouTube feed started appearing a ton of “what I eat in a day” videos and videos with the term “Vegan” in them. At first I paid no attention to the ones tittles vegan in them because I honestly wasn’t interested and watched the “WIEID” videos until one day I came across a video from JessBeautician (she is amazing and so sweet) and loved how lovely her meals were and they were all VEGAN! so I was like OK, this is kind of a sign… let me look into this thing! and started digging up on YouTube to see if someone was well informed to absorb all that knowledge and see what all that was all about!

In my search I came across a video from Carly Byble saying she has gone vegan, the reasons and thanking YouTubers Natasha and Luca “That Vegan Couple” for her conversion from vegetarian to full on vegan. As it was to be expected, I searched for their channel and was hocked! Everything they said was fed to you in such a kind and “I want to teach you” kind of way and I loved that! So I watched most of their videos and when I came across a video response they made directed to a misinformed girl that has P.C.O.S and claimed veganism made it worse, I felt like that video was specially made since I have that condition and have struggling for years with it, and that’s when it REALLY HIT! I thoroughly looked into the vegan lifestyle and saw the “Best Speech You Will Ever Hear – Gary Yourofsky” and it sealed the deal for me! It is a very graphic and very strong speech but it is filled with truth and facts about how it all works now, and how it is supposed to be working!

I am still in the Learning/Transitioning phase and will take time to learn all about it but I am 100% committed to it, I’ve cut out meat, dairy and eggs and it has been a great decision.

Hope this wasn’t too overwhelming for you guys but I felt like I had to share this with you. thank you so much for reading!

Love,

First Vineyard Experience!

My heart jumped with excitement this past Saturday because we were going to have such an amazing experience at the Ocoabay Vineyard and Club. Me and my boyfriend had a tour of their vineyard and to have a wine testing of their own wine after the tour of the complex. Everyone was super nice and gave us a ton of information about the place and wine. In the pictures you are going to see that the place is gorgeous, paradise indeed! We really loved it. Just wanted to share pictured with you guys!

Seeing where the wine was made and hear the whole process was really cool to us, it was something we’d never seen before (at least not in person) so we were super excited to go in to see the machines and later the bodega to have the wine test.

Is there a balance between foodie and Skinny B°tch?

And I wonder… Does such a thing exist?

My whole life I’ve struggled with a few extra pounds that I’ve wanted to get rid off to feel better, to look better, but I’ve never managed to keep it together long enough to look the way I want to. Am I meant to look this way for ever? am I just not built for fitness? where is my will power? and if anyone sells jars of it, where the heck do I get some!?

Ever since I was like 15 or so, I’ve been looking for ways to loose the weight and tried all the crap I found online like:  no carbs diet, liquids diet, raw diets, and so on.. last year being the year of the fitness revolution and dietitians bombing on us that we can we wanted as long as “It Fit Your Macros” the whole thing is extremely confusing and I just cannot live my life counting all the calories I am consuming and keeping track of things like this and not completely enjoying them. when I know people where willing to go to extremes is when I started seeing couples with an electronic food weight weighing their meals at restaurants… NO! that is not for me!

And then, there is the working out part! the lowest I’ve been weight wise was at 130 pounds being 5’8″ tall and that was me working out 2 hours a day at the gym, I did body combat for an hour as my cardio and then weights… that weight was pretty low and I still hadn’t gotten rid of the problem.. so I gave up and now I am back to a lovely 165 pounds! 35 extra pounds gained in a period of 9 months. I had such a great time eating all the things I wanted and not having a care in the world.. the problem started when I couldn’t fit into my clothes… that was like a wake up call to do something, the thing is I am not that excited to eat extra healthy again and workout like a maniac everyday!

I think everyone wishes there was a magical potion or way to keep the weight off without compromising… but seems like there are no short cuts! sad ain’t it!?
