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.

Love,

Natalia

When I started blogging I really didn’t know what to expect.  To be honest, it has been such a great experience.  I wouldn’t trade the experiences and connections I have made just because of blogging.  The downside to this is that all the great people I have met thanks to blogging don’t live anywhere close to me.  We are limited to comments and emails and just knowing each other through pictures.  I always had the mentality I was the only fashion blogger in Jacksonville. Pretty lonely right? Then, I found my dear friend Mayesky from Cafe y Estilo.  I noticed Jacksonville had some fashion bloggers!  I love that girl so much! But then she moved away right after I met her.  I was lonely again.. Haha.

Then I met Thamarr! I am so happy she found me somehow through Instagram.  I remember when she first contacted me.  We never could set a time to meet.  It was until the No Boys Allowed event that we finally met.  We became friends instantly!  Is so nice to meet in person with someone to talk about the things that you are passionate about and they really understand.  We give each other advice and really help each other.  Women coming together can really change the world.

Check Thamarr’s beautiful blog Musings of a Curvy Lady!

Thamarr and I have a love for burgers, brunch and just lay back hangouts.  We got together for drinks and took some pictures together.  We wanted to do a little interview to share with you a little more about ourselves.  You can read hers here.

What made you start blogging?
Since I moved to Florida my passion for style and trends started growing.  All my friends kept pushing me to start a blog and take outfit pictures.   It was until a friend of mine purposely open a WordPress account with a draft for my first post. From then on I haven’t stopped blogging, almost two years ago.

How would you describe your style?
I described my style as vintage and feminine with a modern twist.  Is always fun to try different styles and how this helps you evolve your style with current trends.

What is the last movie you watch?
The last movie I saw was Star Wars 4 (which really is the first Star Wars…) since the new one is coming out.

Who would you want to go to MShack with?
That’s a hard question.  Taylor Swift. I think she will love the milkshakes at MShack.  I do!! 🙂

Latte or cappuccino?
Latte all the way. Give me some Vanilla Latte or Mocha any day.

Favorite songs to sing in the car?
Recently…
What do you mean? – Justin Bieber
No te Cambio por Ninguna – Luis Fonsi
Empty Threat- Chvrches

Other interests other than fashion blogging?
Home decor and design, dance and Netflix (haha)

 

Love,

Natalia
