2012 Favorites!

Have you ever gone through old photos and said, “What was I thinking?!” It gives you that, make your tummy turn feeling. I just experienced that when I went through all of my 2012 posts. The interesting thing is that they aren’t that old, a year isn’t a long time. However I can honestly say I love how my style is evolving. Not just my style but me as a person. I’m evolving & it feels good. 

I wish all you an amazing New Year & I thank you sincerely for your support.

p.s If you want to go through those posts I mentioned feel free :)

With love,

Ilse Perez

Resolution Planning in session

Okay! Where did this week go? I can't believe it's Friday, again. I'm only saying that because I've been on vacation from work so I just go used to sleeping in and I'm not ready to break that up yet. I've been working on my New Year resolutions, have you guys? Last year I made a list of ten things I wanted to accomplish and three ways to execute each specific objective. This really worked for me,I do well with directions. I was able to accomplish about 80% of my goals. I failed miserably when It came to fitness and cooking more, but hey there is always next year to try again right?! 

What are some of you'r goals for 2013?

No puedo creer que es viernes, de nuevo. Sólo estoy diciendo que porque he estado de vacaciones de trabajo, así que acaba de ir acostumbrado a dormir y yo no estoy lista para romper ese todavía. He estado trabajando en mis propósitos de Año Nuevo, tienen ustedes? El año pasado hice una lista de diez cosas que quería lograr y tres maneras de ejecutar cada objetivo específico. Esto realmente funcionó para mí, lo hago bien con las direcciones. Tuve la oportunidad de lograr el 80% de mis metas. Fallé miserablemente cuando se trataba de fitness y cocinar más, pero bueno, siempre hay el próximo año para volver a intentarlo ¿no?!

¿Cuáles son algunos de los objetivos you'r para 2013?

White Christmas

Christmas Eve is tomorrow & I barley finished Christmas shopping yesterday. Part of me wishes that nobody would buy me gifts so no shopping would be needed on my part. That or a personal assistant would work too. The problem is that I shop for others but ALWAYS wind up buying something for myself. Regardless I do enjoy Christmas I love watching my son open his gifts the excitement is priceless, I love the homemade Tamales and I love spending time with my family. What are your plans for Christmas?

Holiday Party Picks

Happy Friday everyone! I wish I could say that I will be relaxing all weekend but I have finals next week so that means I'll be cooped up inside with the heater on and in pjs sitting at my desk trying to "study". With the exception of tomorrow night because It's my office Christmas Party. I haven't really thought about what to wear but I picked out a couple of dresses that I liked online for some Holiday Parties. The first two are my office party choices, what do you guys think? Which is your favorite?

Feliz Viernes a todos! Me gustaría poder decir que va ser un  relajante fin de semana, pero tengo finales  la próxima semana así que significa que voy a estar encerrada  en mi casa con el calentón prendido  y en pijama sentada  en mi escritorio tratando de "estudiar". Con la excepción de mañana por la noche porque es la fiesta de Navidadena de mi oficina. En realidad no he pensado en qué poner me, pero elegí un par de vestidos que me gustaban para algunas fiestas. Los dos primeros son mis opciones  para fiesta de la oficina, ¿qué piensan ustedes? ¿Cuál es tu favorito?

My cousins & I went wine tasting in Lodi, CA. My cousin is getting married in April and we went to visit her venue. We had a really fun time, & the place was gorgeous! Too bad I forgot my DSRL, fail. I love the toasting picture at the bottom. Do you have an IG account?
