10 Home Remedies for Seasonal Affective Disorder

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!

Lots of Love,
Lucia

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 get extra motivated reading them.. it's like a drug that keeps me going... since I've been working rediculous overhours 7 days a week!

Bohemian Inspiration

I've been kinda Pinterest obessed lately! At night in my free time I can spend hours searching Pinterest, repinning beautiful images that inspire me! It is such an addiction!!
Today I want to share some beautiful inspirational images from my Bohemian Inspiration Board, my favorite board! I know, we are in the middle of the cold seasons (lots of snow fell here in the Netherlands last night, so nice!!) but I can't stop collecting summery Bohemian inspired outfits and home decor. I can dream away in these warm colorful images! Can't wait for summer to start again!

Wishing everyone an lovely day! Anyone happen to enjoy some snow already?

Love,

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!

Love,
Lucia
