Faux Fur

Hi. I don't know about you, but I never made New Year's resolutions in my life. The reason for this is that I believe when you really want something to happen, you make it happen, PERIOD.
No promises, no wishes, just ACTIONS. So, if there's something missing in your life, why waste time trying to convince yourself that you need to go get it?
 I guess we all need reasons to start something or to quit something, but what's there to think about if that's truly the best thing for you?
What I am trying to say is, don't wait for January 1st to quit smoking, or to start exercising, do it as soon as possible if these things bother you. Start Today and see the results Tomorrow.
Ok, that might have been a little too dramatic even for me. Let's move on to another topic.

A couple of weeks ago I entered a fashion contest held by Elle Romania and one of my outfits won. My prize is a Gift Voucher, so, you can imagine how excited I am about this since I love to shop. Thank you Elle and Sprider for organizing this cool contest.

The other exciting news I want to share with you is that one of my outfits has been chosen to appear on a Spanish style magazine called Vanidad (for their online section “The look of the day”)
You can check it out here
There is also a small interview in Spanish that I translated for you, you can read in English at my Features and Interviews page here 

Now, there are only a few days left until this year ends and I want to let you know how grateful I am for everything that has happened to me this past year.
I don't want to sound cheesy now, but I want to thank all of you who take the time to visit my blog and comment. I really appreciate all of your support, you made this year so much better for me. I hope you will still be by my side in 2011.

I do agree with you about New Years resolutions. Any day can be a day to change or not!!!!.
I Didn´t know Vanidades. Now, thanks to you, I do.
I love the blue boots, and your whole winning outfit. I had set my heart on a pair of blue boots. See if they come to me hehehehe.
Congrats on all your winning so well deserved.

Mia Delessi said...

These are some exciting news, I'm so happy for you :D

About the new yer athing, I don't pay much attention to it. I believe that if we really want to do something we do it now. New year is just an excuse for those who are too lazy to do something.


Well written, and here's to new years resolutions!

Lovely as usual! I always love your unusual mix of materials and patterns and the way you pull them off. As for the advice with acting instead of dreaming I totally agree, I should do that!:)Congrats about the Elle contest and spanish magazine feature!:)

classiq said...

Congrats for Vanidad magazine! I agree with you regarding the resolutions, (make things happen now!), but making resolutions for the new year is a way of motivating yourself, in wishing more from the new year, it challenges you to improve yourself. Maybe some people need an impulse. Happy New Year

Happy New Year Laura!
first of all congrats on all the feautures. u totally desrve it. your blog has grown so much and it is such an insipration to me.
second as to the resolutions... i always make resolutions and lately i find that i do keep them. making them motivates me thorughout the year to keep looking back at them ad they help me stay on my path. plus they always come deep from our inner desires so most likely they will be achieved some how.

The Hearabouts said...

I don't make New Year's resolutions either. I just make wishes :P.

Congrats again for the win and the feature >:D<. The outfit is p.e.r.f.e.c.t!

Anyway, let's hope 2011 will be better than 2010. I'm optimistic!

Hugs and have a Happy New Year!!!
