My love/hate relationship with Christmas

Hey everyone, ok so today I want to share why I love Christmas and some of the reason that I hate Christmas.

Hola hoy le quiero compartir las cosas que más me gustan y que menos me gustan de la temporada Navideña.

What I love about the Christmas time

Christmas music they put me in such a jolly good mood.

Música navideña, me encanta!

It reminds me to be a kid again. Christmas time I get very nostalgic oh that amazing feeling when you open the present and it was a brand new Barbie.

Me a recuerda de cuando era niña abriendo los regalos y era una nueva Barbie.

All the beautiful decorations, Christmas lights everywhere.

Todas las decoraciones y luces.

Spending times with those who matter most, family.

Compartiendo con mi familia y lo que más quiero.

Wearing xmas pjs being cozy on the couch watching the Hallmark channel. Oh I love me a Hallmark Christmas movie as corny as they are I still love them.

Ver películas de navidad acotada en el mueble lo mejor!

Christmas Eve, when the entire family get together. We all wear our Christmas outfit and have Christmas dinner yumm oh and the cocktails.

Noche buena cuando se reúnen la familia disfrutando la noche comiendo y bebiendo.

It’s the happiest time of the year!

Es la temporada más alegre.

What I hate about Christmas

Christmas has become such a consumerism, materialistic, greedy holiday. It’s all about the gifts and that pisses me off. I hate that we put so much pressure on ourselves to buy buy buy. I mean it all starts with black Friday how people just go insane over “deals.” People go broke spending so much to buy things for their love ones because they feel that if they don’t spend enough their love ones won’t like it. I used to put a lot of pressure on myself also, but the wiser I get I’m starting to see that we shouldn’t focus so much on the gifts. But more on having the Christmas spirit and showing love to everyone. Now I still do buy my love ones Christmas gift but I don’t go all out and I sure don’t drive myself bankrupt just to do so. If I can only afford to get my love ones chocolate that’s all they are going to get. If they feel like I love them less for that then we have some serious issues. My point is I don’t let friends, family, society drive me insane and I don’t let the pressure get to me. I’ll buy my love ones a gift because I honestly want too not because I have to. I myself don’t ask for anything for Christmas if a person wants to get me something do it because they want to because honestly I’m not expecting anything from anyone but love and a good time.

Lo que no me gusta de la navidad es el consumismo de esta temporada. Todo el mundo se olvida que la navidad no danamas se trata de regalos. Para mí la navidad se trata de familia, amor, estar feliz y paz en el mundo. Pero la sociedad en la que vivimos se enfoca tanto en que comprar. Aquí en los Estados Unidos la gente se vuelve loca y también gastan todo lo que tienen para comprar cosas para sus seré querido que se olvidan disfrutar. El punto es que la navidad no sólo se trata de regalos. Y si no puedes comprarles cosas caras a tu seres queridos eso no importa. El comprar no es la única manera de enseñar tú amor y apreciación con la familia.

It’s starting to look a lot like xmas

Hello everyone, it’s Monday morning and back to work, ugh how depressing lol. Wanted to come on here and share some of my weekend highlights. I went to an ugly sweater Christmas party Saturday night. It was a lot of fun. I don’t usually party often anymore but it was nice to go out. This month has been a bit hectic for me a lot of social activities. Being the introvert that I am that really drains my energy. I’m so looking forward to the holidays ending to be honest, as much as I love it. It can get a bit overwhelming for me. Ok back to the weekend highlight. I also went out for brunch on Sunday. I love brunch that’s one social activity that I really enjoy. NYC streets are lit up with Christmas lights. I love it makes the city look just like in the home alone movie, very Christmas. How did you guys spend your weekend? And it can’t just be me that gets overwhelmed during the holidays right? Let me know

Hola, le quería compartir el fin de semana que tuve. El sábado fui para una fiesta de navidad de suerte feos. Súper divertido y el domingo fui para brunch. La temporada de navidad me gusta mucho pero también me hace sentir un poco pesada con todas las actividades. De verdad que quiero que las temporada navideña ya pase. Pero si me gustan todas las luces que ponen en la calle. Las calles de NYC se ven tan linda con todas las decoraciones navideñas. Y ustedes como se pasaron el fin de semana?

Allow me to reintroduce myself

Hello everyone, one thing I notice since I started this blog was that I never introduced myself how rude of me. Today I wanted to introduce my self and get a little personal, after all this is a personal blog. Hi world, my name is Rosaira Arias I know it’s a bit difficult to pronounce if you don’t speak Spanish. I have a nick name Rosy due to the issue that so many people find my name so difficult to say. I actually used to dislike my name for this reason but the older I got the more I said screw that my name is fabulous, I love it. If others have a difficult pronouncing it too bad. Enough with my name let’s talk about the reason why I started this hobby in the first place. The reason for this blog I remember back in 2009 I came across a blogger. She was a personal blogger sharing all her fashion likes and sharing her life on a website. I fell in love with her blog and with the idea of blogging. I still follow her to this day. That was the day I was introduced to the world of blogging. I knew that I also wanted to create my own blog. Where I get to share myself all my interest fashion, beauty, life, and many others. As you can see that was back in 2009 it is now 2017 and I am finally doing it. (Took me long enough) The truth is I started comparing myself to every successful blogger out there. Thoughts of maybe I’m not good enough, and I don’t have a photographer you know that annoying voice of doubt crept in and too be honest it paralyzed me for too long. But then I kept hearing another voice that kept telling me start it already the desire just wouldn’t go away and well here we are. Finally creating my own space in this online world. It’s only the beginning, I don’t know exactly where I’m going with this blog but ever since I started sharing on here the more my love for it keeps on growing. I would love if this passion of mine actually turned into a business that’s one of my dream. Until then time will tell and I would just keep on following my passion and hope you guys enjoy the things I create. Let me tell you a little of my background I was born in the Dominican Republic an island in the Caribbean right next to Haiti. My family and I moved to New York City when I was 8 years old. I grew up in NYC and I am still living here till this day. I have a love and hate relationship with this city more on that in a different post. Thank you for all the love! All the comments and followers I have received makes me so freaking happy thank you. welcome and buckle up it’s going to be a bumpy and very exciting journey!

Hola a todos, una cosa que me note desde que comencé este blog fue que nunca me presenté. Hoy quería presentarme y ser un poco personal. Hola mundo, mi nombre es Rosaira Arias. El motivo de este blog es recuerdo en 2009 me encontré con una blogger. Ella era una blogger personal compartiendo todos sus gustos de la moda y compartiendo su vida en un blog. Me enamoré de su blog y con la idea de bloguear. Todavía la sigo hasta este día. Ese fue el día en que me presentaron al mundo de los blogs y me encanto la idea. Sabía que también quería crear mi propio blog. Donde pudiera compartir mi interés por la moda, la belleza, la vida y muchas otras cosas. Como pueden ver, eso fue en 2009, ahora es 2017 y finalmente lo estoy haciendo. (Me tomó suficiente tiempo) La verdad es que comencé a compararme con cada blogger exitosa que hay. La voz de miedo y de inseguridad me asusto y me paraliso por mucho tiempo. Pero luego escuché otra voz que me decía que comenzara ya,  el deseo simplemente no se me iba y bueno, aquí estamos. Finalmente creando mi propio espacio en este mundo de blogs. Es solo el comienzo, no sé exactamente a dónde voy con este blog, pero desde que comencé a compartirlo, más mi amor por él sigue creciendo. Me encantaría que esta pasión mía se convirtiera en un negocio  ese us uno de mi sueño. Hasta entonces el tiempo dirá y yo solo seguiré siguiendo mi pasión y espero que ustedes disfruten de las cosas que creo. Permítanme contarles un poco sobre mis antecedentes. Nací en la República Dominicana, una isla en el Caribe justo al lado de Haití. Mi familia y yo nos mudamos a la ciudad de Nueva York cuando tenía 8 años. Crecí en Nueva York y todavía vivo aquí hasta este día. Tengo una relación de amor y odio con esta ciudad más sobre eso en una publicación diferente. ¡Gracias por todo el amor! Todos los comentarios y seguidores que he recibido me hacen sentir tan feliz. Gracias.

P.s yo se que el español mio no esta muy bien. Se me encuentra tan dificil de expresarme y escribir en español pero poco a poco voy aprendiendo mas y mas. Me acostumbre de masiado hablar el ingles que el espanol se me esta hiyendo y no quiero que eso pase.

Work Holiday Party

Hey everyone, this past weekend was my work holiday party. I wanted to share my outfit because I loved it. I found this cute dress in Target I thought it was perfect for a work party. Is cute, simple and super flirty and very work appropriate. I pair it with thigh high boots because it was freezing outside and I wanted to be warm but cute. This was one of my fav looks!

Hola el domingo fui para la fiesta de navidad del trabajo y este fue mi outfit. Me encanto este vestido lo encuentres en Target súper económico. Como estaba bien frío me lo puse con botas altas y me encanto el look. El vestido perfecto para la ocasión.
