Number Two


I can’t believe it has been two years since my first blog post in this little place I love so much.  The thing I cherish the most is getting to meet so many lovely people.  I am so thankful for all the people who take the time to read my blog and support me every day.  Two years have past pretty quickly and I’m not planning to stop.  I really want this to be my full time life.  It would be a dream.

So after two years there are more of you lovely readers and I wanted to share a little about myself.  So here are some facts and fun facts about me.

  6. Five minutes won’t go by before I come up with a joke, start singing (badly) or break into a dance.

  8. I HATE ROACHES.  My husband promised in his wedding vows to kill them all…
  9. I eat ice cream 6 out 7 days a week.
  10. My favorite movies are Hayao Miyazaki movies.

Mod Baby




Remember when I told you I was obsessed with this color?  Well, I can’t get enough of it… or suede. This little suede dress from Forever 21 makes me feel like a mod babe.  It goes perfectly with my Crown Vintage black Mary Janes heels. The 60s styles has been a strong inspiration for me this season. Give me all the suede and high necks!

What has inspired you lately?


Se acuerdan cuando les dije que tan obsesionada estoy de este color? Pues, necesito mas piezas en mi closet de color marsala… y gamuza. Este trajesito de gamuza de Forever 21 me hace sentir súper mod. Va perfecto con mis nuevos tacos negros de Crown Vitange, estilo Mary Jane. Los estilos de los 60s han sido una gran inspiración para mi esta temporada. Cuellos altos y gamuza han sido mis estilos preferidos!
Cuales han sido tus ultimas inspiraciones?

Happy Saturday!

Saturday has become my favorite day of the week. It’s the day I disconnect and do my thing and forget about everything else.  Remember when I told you some things will change around here and how difficult it was to just do blog thing over the weekend?  Well, I started working with my beautiful friend and photographer Amanda Lenhardt and she will take most pictures for Curious Natalia!  I have always loved and admire her work and creativity, so I am over the moon with this decision.  This decision was long overdue. We realized how hard it was for Justin and I to only take pictures only weekends due to time change and his new job.  I am so grateful for what he has done and he will continue to do for me to make my dreams come true.

I wanted to share some outfit pictures from our photoshoot with my girl, Thamarr, from Musings of a Curvy Lady.  I created a James Dean look, a grungier look than my usual.  I love trying other styles and how I can make them look like something I can really see myself wearing.  Who doesn’t love putting a leather jacket and red lips?  This look was perfectly completed by this adorable marsala-wine suede ankle boots from Clarks.  Seriously, the most comfortable boots in the most popular color of the season.  You will see how obsessed I am with this color later on.

Now enjoy the weekend… because it will be done before you know it.


Feliz Sábado!

Sábado es mi día favorito de la semana.  Es el día en el cual me desconecto y me olvido de todo.  Se acuerdan cuando les dije que par de cosas cambiarían por aquí y que tan difícil ha sido hacer cosas del blog solo en los fines de semana? Pues, empece a trabajar con mi hermosa amiga y fotógrafa Amanda Lenhardt y de ahora en adelante tomará la mayoría de las fotos para Curious Natalia! Siempre me ha fascinado su trabajo y creatividad y estoy como nena chiquita de emocionada.  Esta decisión ya llevaba tiempo en mi mente, hasta que nos dimos cuenta que tan difícil ha sido para Justin y para mi tomar fotos solo en los fines de semana por diferentes razones.  El cambio de horario y el nuevo trabajo de Justin son estas razones.  Yo estoy agradecida por todo lo que el ha hecho y lo que continuará haciendo para que yo cumpla mis sueños y metas.

Quería compartir par de fotos de mi outfit que use en las fotos con mi amiga Thamarr de Musings of a Curvy Lady.  Me encanta tratar otros estilos y como puedo transformarlos en algo que yo usualmente usaría.  A quien no le gusta ponerse un leather jacket y lipstick rojo? Este look fue perfectamente completado con estas botas adorables color marsala de Clarks. En serio, las botas mas cómodas en el color mas popular de la temporada.  Verán que tan obsesionada estoy con este color muy pronto.

Ahora disfruta tu fin de semana… Porque se va en un abrir y cerrar de ojos.
