Hey ladies! How was everone's Christmas?

I'm recovering from a major flu, a throat & lung infection! Christmas for me was hell.. I couldn't eat anything and nothing excited me, I only wanted to go to bed, boohoo. This is the second week I've been sick and I'm just not getting my old self back.. seems like I have a flu / Seasonal Affective Disorder combo. The days are very short and cold, the lack of natural light really affects me. Oh, how I miss the warm sun.. I need some Spring!
For those of you who suffer from seasonal affective disorder as well, here is a list of ten things you can do at home or during your daily routine that can help ease those winter blues. If you have any other remedies that aren’t on the list below, please!

The Hand Making Process

Hey everyone!

In November I arranged a GiveAway on blog for one cutomized bracelet, made by yours truly! The winner, Gaby, told me to surprise her, which I did! I created a custom design that I thought would fit her and her wardrobe the best! This week she recieved the bracelet and featured it in a lovely post on her blog Modacapital Mexico! If you read this Gaby; muchisimas gracias amiga! You are the sweetest!

So, I thought it would be nice to document the hand making process of this bracelet.. as I still recieve many "did you make it yourself" comments daily! Well, hereby I proudly present a "sneak peek" of the process of my work...not all of it of course, company secret!

Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas!!

Love,
Lucia

Wednesdays' Inspiration: Tribal Knits



Hey girls!

Just a short inspirational post for today! As some of you might know, I'm totally rediculously obsessed with anything Tribal printed. If I see something Tribal, I just NEED to have it! From clothing to a freakin' doormat...I just can't help myself! If something like a Tribal printed toilet seat excisted, I would totally get it hehe.
Since it got colder I've been hunting for Tribal knits, especially vintage pieces are one of my favorites! I'm trying to keep calm cause there are so many gorgeous pieces I would SO love to have, but can't afford all at once unfortunately! Anyway, I've found some gorgeous inspirational Tribal knit combo outfits I wanted to share... aren't they gorgeous?

Wishing everyone a lovely day/night :)!

Love,
Lucia

5 Natural Cures For Sleeplessness

I haven't slept well in days (BOOHOO!), which inspired me to make this post about natural cures for sleeplessness. Why I'm not catching any sleep knowing these remedies? I guess it's the stress and pressure from work around the holidays... don't get me wrong, I LOVE what I do...but having a competative profession, having to do every single thing alone, all day, every day.. is totally exhausting! My brain keeps on running 24-7, which results into Sleeplessness!

If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, here are some simple, natural steps you can take to have a good night sleep and awaken feeling happy, rested, and ready to start your day!

I can dream away in these warm colorful images! Can't wait for summer to start again!

Sneak peek: New wrap bracelets

Hey ladies! How was everyones' weekend?

Just wanted to share a sneak peek of some new designs I will be launching this week! I'm SO in love with these bracelets, I think they are my favorite designs I've made so far. They are made with hand painted cotton (organic of course!) and are hand embroidered on the sides. It's a 2in1 bracelet, both sides can be used. You can choose the wear it on the colored side or on the black side (each bracelet is lined with black cotton). They will be available in 20 different color combinations.
I've been announcing to launch these bracelets for a few weeks now, but because I'm working double overtime for the holidays, I didn't get the time to update! I have so many designs that are still waiting in line to be launched...but with the amount of work I have, I just can't get to it. Oooh, I SO wish I had employees!! Unfortunately it's just me for now, boohoo! One day... one day...

Oh and by the way, I changed my website layout.. what you girls think? Yay or nay? www.LuciaFloresDesign.com

Wishing everyone a lovely week!

Outfit Post #9: Time for Knits

Hey girls! Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Each day it's getting colder here in the Netherlands. I refilled my closet with all my sweaters for winter some time ago, but I haven't got the oppertunity to wear them yet. Well, today was the day! In one day the temperature dropped around 10 degrees celcius..and omg, that's a huge difference at once! I was so cold today I decided to wear my warmest sweater with some nice warm booties, aren't they cute? I bought both the sweater and the wedges like 3 years ago in Antwerp at Morgan.. a total pain in the ass, I remember I spend like 200 euros. Just had to have them! Sometimes you just need something.. even though it's expensive. It's like love at first sight, you just can't walk away from it! In this case, it was totally worth it!

Gotta get back to work! Hope you girls like the outfit!

Love,
Lucia

Kristen Stewart

Hey girls!

Since the new Twilight movie is out, I've been watching many interviews and press conferences with the cast. I've always been a big fan of Kristen Stewart, her style is amazing.. totally my thing and I totally love her down to earth weirdo goofy way of being! She stays herself and she doesn't care! I know, she cheated on Robert.. that was a stupid move and I'm totally on Roberts team.. but well, the media always makes things worst than they are and also we don't know what's behind everything, so...and who care anyway!!? I love how Kristen combines elegant with her tomboy style, which is her favorite..so is mine! She does wear haute couture, proving that she can be a lady :), despite her reputation for wearing boyish, rock-inspired clothes on the red carpet. Her evolving style through the years shows she has not only the chops to pull off high fashion but a zest for glamour that expresses itself in funky, eclectic ways.

Wanted to share some of her outfits! What do you think of her style?

Have a nice weekend!!!

Love,
Lucia

What to wear for Christmas?

Hey girls!!

For the past few weeks I've been thinking about what to wear for Christmas!! Normally I don't care, well I care, but usually I always wear black, so it's not that difficult to assemble a nice Christmas outfit! Black = safe & easy! This year I want something TOTALLY different. I need some color for Christmas!! Somehow I just can't make a decision about the colors...champagne, bordeaux, blue, turquoise, ivory...or soft pink??! I found some really nice dresses online! Really don't know what to do with the color, big issue!

What you girls think? And which colors are you wearing this Christmas?

Oh, by the way... I found all there gorgeous dresses on www.zalando.com

Love,
Lucia

YAY OR NAY??

The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn part 2

Hey girls! Hope everybody is having a wonderful week so far!

This week was very very exciting for me, because this week was the release of The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn part 2. Yesterday I went to the premiere. One week before I was jumping around like a little kid, too excited to see the last part. I love the Twilight series SO MUCH! I know, not everybody likes them, especially the guys. When I hear a guy talking about the movies, I always hear the words: gay, lame or stupid girl movie. I know, I know, the sparkling vampires are not the ideal appearance of a "real" vampire, but who cares?! It's not about that! It is all about the romantic fantasy! I mean, who doesn't want to be a 17-year-old high school girl pursuing her desire for romance and eternal commitment with a vampire???

Anyways, yesterday was THE day! The only thing I can say about the movie (to not screw it up for the ones who still have to see it hehe)... it was AWESOME!!!! For sure the best part of the entire series. YOU HAVE TO GO AND SEE THIS MOVIE! It is spectacular and totally necessary to see in the movie theater!

Somebody planning to see it? If you saw it already, what do you think? Very curious!

Love,
Lucia
