Bohemian Christmas Inspiration

Months prior to the holidays I start preparing and brainstorming about outfits, presents, decor etc. The earlier the better! This year I'm going for an overall Boho look in my house. Colorful patterned ornaments and decorations (DIY preferably), carved wooden ligths, branches, Christmas lights in all colors or the rainbow...as many different colors and patterns as possible. It is actually very easy to create a Boho Christmas decor. Just randomly throw all your old Christmas decoration together.. et voilĂ ! As long as you leave out the commerial mainstream Santa stuff (which I don't think fits with the look), you're good to go.

Sharing some Bohemian Christmas Inspiration today! What's your decor style this Christmas?

Love,
Lucia

10 Ingredients To Avoid In Beauty Products

I grew up in a very healthy, all organic, environment. Over the years I've learned many things about beauty products. The scary thing about knowing so much about "bad" ingredients in beauty products is that most of the stuff that you are putting on your skin today does more harm than good. Most big companies will make you think that what you are putting on your skin is good by making the bottle look "natural" or/and adding misleading text to make you believe it's "ok", well dear, after years of following scientific researches... they are just bullsh%#*^ing their way into making more money, by using the populations' growing confidence in "natural" products. Don't fall for it, many products are actually believed to cause long-term issues within your body.

Applying a product topically, doesn't mean it can't enter your body. Yes, your skin is actually the largest organ your body owns :). When you apply a substance on your skin it will seep through your pores and enter your bloodstream, interacting with what’s inside your body. It's so important to keep beauty products as natural as possible. This might sound a little weird, but after years of experience this is one of the best advices I can give you (if you dig into this subject you'll understand): If you can't eat it, don't use it!

There are so many ways to make your own beauty products with natural ingredients, but if you don't have the resources to make something at home, there are some companies that can actually offer you something natural and organic (I've been using Weleda my entire life). Read all ingredients carfully before you decide to put something "in" your body :). And please note: not all products labeled “natural” are telling the full truth!!! Really, it's not that much of a big deal to check a bottle before you buy it, see it as an investment in yourself, you’re protecting one of your most important assets: your body.

This is a list of the most dangerous ingredients in beauty products (in a next post I'll add a few more), please read it carefully. You might not care right now, but remember that eventually you are irreversibly damaging your body.

Hope you like this post! If you have any questions or anything to add, just let me know!

Love,
Lucia

New In: The Bohemian Dream

It's not only the darker season kicking in why my days seem shorter, also I have too much to do, I just don't have enough hours in the day to do everything I wish to do. Can't remember the last time I shared some of my work for The Bohemian Dream. I'm totally loosing track of everything. Business is booming and each week I'm growing... that in combination with designing a new Spring Summer collection for Lucia Flores Design is almost deadly... no wonder I don't have time to relax. Anyway, sharing some of my favorite pieces I've designed in the past weeks. Opinions are highly appreciated!

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!

Love,
Lucia

Favorite Designers Spring-Summer 2014

Winter didn't even begin yet, but I'm already day dreaming about the next Spring and Summer. Oh, how I miss the warmth. I'm really looking foward to it and there's still such a long time to go before it's getting warmer again, especially where I come from.
I've been watching Spring/Summer 2014 fashion shows all morning and I wanted to share my favorites. Mara Hoffman, Alberta Feretti, Anna Sui and Isabel Marant are just a few of my favorites for 2014. Totally worth watching these shows, enjoy!

Who are your favorite designers the coming Spring/Summer 2014?

Love,
Lucia

November Inspirational Music

October passed me by in an eyeblink. Too many running projects and work have been almost killing me the past month. I don't think November and December will get any different haha, holiday seasons are the worst! Don't get me wrong, I love what I do, but I miss blogging, which is the first thing to put aside when I'm busy. Will catch up will all my favorite blogs on my next free day! Haven't forgot about you girlies :)!

This month I'd like to start with some Inspiration Music instead of my monthly Inspirational Quotes post :). I love all kinds of music, from classical to metal, from Slipknot to Bach. I've been listening to a lot of Paramore lately, Hayleys voice is incredible! If you don't like rock, at least take the time to listen to the lyrics... so good! Enjoy!

Wishing everyone a lovely month!

Love,
Lucia
