Half Bun

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Half buns are very trendy so as I love trying new things, here it is! I like this pinafore dress from Zara with the bandeau, just a casual outfit for the weekends. I found the perfect excuse to wear this little number out and about for a lunch date the other day. It was very easy to style with a pair of booties, round sunnies and the half bun! XO

Trilogy Rosehip Collection

Monday, September 21, 2015

Skin care is very important to me, finding the right product is key. No matter what, I religiously take off my makeup and wash my face every night. I feel that it's extremely important to take care of your skin from an early age. I decided to try Trilogy products, an all natural skincare line that is based out of New Zealand and just launched in the U.S. at Whole Foods in April. They have some amazing products from an Everything Balm, Instant Bronzing Gel and a full lineup of face oils and products that contain Rosehip Oil... which was actually confirmed to be used by both Cara Delevingne and Kate Middleton! 
________________

El cuidado de la piel es muy importante para mí, encontrar el producto adecuado es la clave. Todas las noches religiosamente me quito el maquillaje y me lavo la cara antes de irme a la cama. Siento que es muy importante tomar cuidado de tu piel desde temprana edad. Decidí probar los productos de Trilogy, una linea natural para el cuidado de la piel y que acaban de lanzar sus productos en Whole Foods el pasado abril. Tienen productos increíbles desde un bálsamo que puedes usar para la piel, cara, labios y manos. Un bronceador instantáneo en gel y una línea completa de aceites y productos faciales que contienen Aceite de 'Rosehip' ... que ha sido utilizado por la modelo Cara Delevingne y Kate Middleton!


I tried the Trilogy Rosehip Collection box that contains 4 products the perfect size for travel. It is the perfect set to try and the perfect gift for someone. It comes with the Rosehip Oil Antioxidant, The Vital Moisturizing Cream, a Cream Cleanser, Hydrating Mist Toner and a Cotton bag. I'm in love with the Cleanser as it leaves my skin soft and moist, I'm usually careful about selecting my cleansers as some dry my skin a lot. The 4 products smell delicious, so yummy to put on your face. It is definitely an amazing product and I have been loving it so much! If you try it, I hope you like it as much as I did!

Comenze a usar la colección 'Rosehip' que contiene 4 productos faciales del tamaño perfecto para viajar. Viene con el Aceite de 'Rosehip' que es un antioxidante, una crema hidratante, una crema de limpieza, y un tonificador hidratante. Amo la crema de limpieza facial, ya que deja la piel suave y humectada, por lo general soy muy cuidadosa con la selección de mis productos ya que muchos me resecan la piel. Les recomiendo estos productos! Espero que les gusten tanto como a mi!

Matching Set

Thursday, September 17, 2015


Hello everyone! Hope your week is going well so far. As I mentioned before I have been wearing looser pieces lately. I'm not such a matching person but when it came to this set of trousers and halter top I really loved the sleek look and not to mention how comfortable it is. This is a great outfit for work, dinner or events. I paired it with minimalistic heels, plain earrings, a black bag and to complete the look a sleek hairstyle. Hope you like it!

Thank you for reading!
Love, Karla

In Full Bloom

Saturday, September 12, 2015

Sometimes I find floral prints to be a bit too busy or loud, yet there is absolutely nothing overpowering about this floral print. I like how it graduates from light to denser at the hem. I decided to paired it with gladiator sandals to give it a more casual look. I completely adore the floral clutch, even with a different floral pattern I like the contrast against the dress.

Thank you for reading!

A veces los estampados florales me parecen ser muy llamativos, sin embargo, no hay nada abrumador sobre este estampado. Me gusta la forma en que el estampado es más denso en el dobladillo. Decidí ponérmelo con sandalias gladiador para darle un look más casual. Adoro el bolso, apesar que tiene un estampado diferente me gusta el contraste.

Feeling Blue

Friday, September 04, 2015

Currently finding myself wearing looser pieces like this top and trousers. I want to build a strong wardrobe for work, pieces that look professional yet fashionable as I work in the garment industry. Looking profesional doesn't always means a suit, you can always mix different pieces and wear a blazer or trousers with a nice top. Happy Friday everyone!

Thank you for reading,
Love, Karla

Hong Kong Photo Diary

Tuesday, September 01, 2015
Hong Kong
Sitting in the window of my room in Hong Kong. Some moments are just magic.

It's fascinating how life changes so quickly and when you look back a year, things have completely shifted changing everything about your lifestyle. Is days like this that i'm so thankful for life, to witness the beauty of other countries, people and cultures. To be so blessed with this journey and to learn so much of the new experiences. 

One of the things I recommend to do while in Hong Kong is to go see the giant Buddha in Ngong Ping Lantau Island and get there on the 360 cable car.


What to do: Get to Ngong Ping Lantau Island (Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Terminal or Bus.

- By MTR: Take MTR and transfer to Tung Chung Line. Get off at Tung Chung station and take Exit B. Follow the signs and walk about 2-3 minutes to the Cable Car counter.

- From the Airport: Take the MTR Airport Express Train to Tsing Yi Station (fare HK$ 60 single journey [approx. 12 mins ride). Then change in Tsing Yi Station to Tung Chung line and get off at Tung Chung station.

- From Mainland China (Lo Wu/Lok Ma Chao): Take the MTR East Rail line to Kowloon Tong (approx. 37 mins ride). Then transfer to subway to Tung Chung station and  take the Exit B. Follow the signs and walk about 2-3 minutes to the Cable Car counter.
Alternatively, you can take the MTR East Rail Line to Sheung Shui (just one stop/ approx. 7 minutes/fare about HK$ 20). Take exit D1 and walk towards the bus stops. Then take Bus 279X to Tsing Yi MTR station. At the Tsing Yi Station change to the orange MTR Tung Chung Line (about HK$ 15) and stay till the last station.
Get to Big Buddha and Ngong Ping Village:
After you get to Lantau Island, you can choose the following ways to get up to Big Buddha and Ngong Ping Village:
- By Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car: For details about how to get up to Big Buddha by cable car, please refer to the article”Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car“.
- By New Lantau Bus No.23: The New Lantau Bus No.23 (air-conditioned bus) starts from Tung Chung Town Center to Ngong Ping Road. The ride is about 21 kilometers and takes around 50 minutes. Adult ticket price from Mon-Fri is approx. HK$ 17 and on weekends and holidays is approx. HK$ 27. Taking New Lantau Bus No.23 is an economic way of getting to Big Buddha as well as an alternative when Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car is broken or under maintenance. However, it takes longer time and is not suitable for those who have bus-sick.
Official Site of New Lantau Bus No.23: http://www.newlantaobus.com/road_23.htm
- By Taxi: If there are too many people waiting for either the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car or the New Lantau Bus, you also can consider hiring a taxi. Taking taxi to Big Buddha takes about 20-25 minutes and costs around HK$ 200.


“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.” -Flavia Weedn
