El Universo de lo Sencillo
This book is still only in Spanish, so if you can read in Spanish I highly recommend you!
The writer, Pablo Arribas, is very inspirational, and this book has been for me a great guide to have in my night table, which I read each time I want to remember the importance to be courageous, and prioritize my heart desires.
It is about 50 thoughts, as the writer resume, to love and growth as brave persons.
That is the reason I want to share with you, because for me, this book has contributed to change my way of looking and living the life.
Again, I recommend you their reading.
Hope be COURAGEOUS was cool!
Discovering the most favored colors on you!
In the previous post we talk about color tones, we set the difference between cold and warm tones.Today we share some tips which can help us to know which tones suit us better, so let see some points about that:
· Veins color, if our veins tend to more greenish that means warm tones are our ones; however if our veins have a greater tendency to bluish, your tones would be cool.
· Metals, if gold accessories suits you better, then your tones are warm; if you feel better with silver colors, your tones are the cool ones.
· Sun skin reaction, if you get tan easily and do not sunburn with sun, warm colors feel you better, if you are one of those who burn easily and take time to get tan, at that point your colors are cool.
· Neutral tones can also help us define our group, if you look better with ivory, beige or toasted colors, you are definitely warm tones. If you look more favored with white or black, your tones are cool.
· Eyes & hair color can be also a great indicator; however there are multiple combinations, and sometimes it becomes confusing. Usually warm skins are characterized by toasted, brown, hazel or honey eyes with hair in the following tones: brown, coppery red blond or black with golden tints. Pale blue, green and black eyes with blond hair, light chestnut and black with bluish tones, are usually cool skins.
I hope this helps you to determine which your tones are.

“Vintage” Sport Outfit
This outfit is the result of putting into place the reading of a book, which I recommend you to read it. It is about coaching, and it was a present from my boss to all colleges department. I can confirm that it deserves to be read. It is a good way to keep discovering yourself and progress a little bit more in the encounter with ourselves.
As most of you know, part of a great coaching process is to have a lead life, and it is part of it to have a well-organized closet. So while I was clearing my stuff, I found these Nike Blazer, which are one of my favorite sneakers by far.
I can say they are quite vintage, they are almost 8 years old, and I can leave them. I love them and I still find them fashionable… even over the years. In addition they also bring me really good memories.
The t-shirt is another great vintage garment, it is approximately the same age, but when you choose the right clothes they can last a lot longer.
So, today’s post may have moral, clear and consolidate your closet to have your life organized but keep your favorites 😉
Here you have the link to the book in case you want to read it, Talane Miedaner Coaching for Success. This is a summary I found surfing by internet, which can give you an idea about it. Reading highly recommended.
Jean: Abercrombie & Fitch
Sneakers: Nike Blazer
Dare to live!
That is how I summarize last weekend, when I took part in a workshop about human beings taught by Sergi Torres. He is a speaker and writer who invite people to find it themselves.
I remain several things he said such as become aware about ourselves, be PRESENT in each instant we are living, keep thinking, and his book, Jump Into the Void (translation in progress) has my support.
I am almost finishing it, so I can say which is well worth reading. It is an invitation to find yourself, to discover what prevent us from feeling emotions, and being ourselves. As Sergi said “this book is an invitation to cross the border of our personality and throw ourselves into the void of our being and our heart”.
I knew Sergi through a friend, and I decided listen to his ideas, nowadays I am having fun while I am trying to be aware and be honest with myself.
Highly recommended as a help system to get deep into those parts that sometimes, it seems we do not want to look, ultimately to DISCOVER YOURSELF.
Cool & Warm Tones
We all look better with some colors. This is not by chance, our skin surface tone, eyes and hair color, even our veins, define the most appropriate color tone for each and every one of us.
There are basically two groups of tones, cool and warm. We have also neutral, but let´s start for this two.
COOL TONES are those with blue undertone.Does that mean that “all blue tones” enhance my appearance? The answer is NO, since there are blue tones with more yellow components, for such us the turquoise-blue…
WARM COLORS are those with yellow undertone. We can do again same question, so now let’s give an example with red color. “All red tone”s looks good on me if I belong warm color group?The answer again is NO. It depends on the red range.There are red tones with more yellow content such us coral red.
Coral red looks better to those who fit into warm colors group. Even in Summer, when we are bronzed, we all feel good with this color… but actually this color is enhancing warms…What about cherry red. This red tone has more blue content; therefore it is perfect for those who fit with cool colors.
It is really useful to know our color palette, as these will be the colors which get better our looks.
In the next post we will see some guidelines to know if we are warm or cool colors.
