Are you Perfect?


Many people think that one body type is the ideal one and that others are not good enough.The fashion industry and the media sometimes contribute to this and so do some of us. No one is perfect, perfection does not exist and that is a fact! There are a lot of stereotypes and standards that women are subjected to everyday, but the question of how their bodies should look like is certainly one of the most important ones.


The most popular expectation for women concerning their bodies is to be thin, toned and in proportion. But if we want women to be truly equal, the image of the ideal female body needs to be widened. We should recognize that women come in all shapes and sizes, encourage body positivity and get rid of the unhealthy fixation over women’s bodies. Fortunately, things have changed.


The media is demonstrating that having body fat now seems to be the trend. People are starting to simply accept larger sizes in Magazines, Campaigns, Runways and so on. This, most definitely, is an encouraging development. Can we talk about photoshop?… that is one of my pet peeves. Many models no matter what size get so much photoshop in one way or another to try to look “perfect”. They’re shown in advertisements, not in their natural form, but edited to where the shape of their body is actually changed to look thinner, or have bigger lips,no cellulite among other things.


I love what Editor and Chief of Style and Curve Magazine Lyz Lupo is doing showcasing models in their natural form. Models that women can relate to. So… you are not “perfect” but you are beautiful just the way you are, accepting and loving your virtues and flaws. Having that self-confidence that when you walk into a room everyone just has to look your way.


Women who embrace their bodies with confidence work against the damage done by society. Remember…

“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.” Lao Tzu

Who doesn’t love to own a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry? I found an amazing Jewelry Designer named Jockabed Soto Muñiz from Puerto Rico owner of Soleils Kreations, she was born in Aguadilla PR and has a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology(2000) with a Medical Technology certification(2007).


She has been designing jewelry for more than 15 years, at first it was a hobby and personal enjoyment, but the passion for design was so strong that it turned into a professional career. After a metals craftsmanship course with designer Denise Elizabeth in PR she refined her skills and gave her passion an expression outlet. Being the daughter of a Master Model Maker of the jewelry industry and the niece of an art teacher she likes to think that she has been bestowed with generational passion and skills.


As a jeweler her approach is unconventional. Her creations are made to be a wearable pieces of art, unique and exquisite, no creations are alike. Most of her creations are inspired by the Amoeba her distinctive patterns and rare shapes are captivating and translate into beautiful designs. Another of this designers many inspirations takes the form of a puzzle pieces, she has a personal attachment to this expression, they remind her of her son and all the kids that struggle with autism.


As unique as each puzzle piece is so are each and every one of these kids, it makes Soto proud as a mother to wear these pieces because it gives her the opportunity to educate people about autism and let them know how special each one is.

Cenia New York launches Jean Line and chooses her Brand Ambassador in Puerto Rico!

I have never met a woman who does not own a pair of jeans, any age, any size. I myself can not live without them. One of my favorite Designers Cenia Paredes (Cenia New York), a Designer that has dressed celebrities with her beautiful designs will launch her Jean Line this coming July and I was over the moon about that. 


Paredes told me “If you are like me and always had to take your jeans in at back waist because your hips and butt are significantly bigger than your waist, the solution is finally here! The Cenia Convi Jean solves that problem with two zippered darts at the back waist that makes the waist measurement about 2″ smaller than the standard jeans on the market. I always had issues with this, my waist is smaller then my booty , so I always end up having a gap at the back of my jeans . it blew my mind hearing how Cenia is going to help us girls out there with this struggle. 


When the zippers are down, the have a standard Jean waist measurement! So if you are tired of your jeans gapping at the back or bunching up when you belt them, you will love this! Also they are super stretchy and soft like leggings and have no pocket bag at the front, because you know if you are hippy those things keep popping out and you have to continuously tuck them in.


In addition, the waistline is cut 2″ below your natural waist, so it sits at the right spot to tuck you in at the stomach and love handles and give you the prefect fit and coverage for your body. The Cenia Convy Jean is patent pending and comes in a variety of colors and styles.” The Designer has started her shoots in New York with gorgeous models and I am so happy for model Ana Garcia who she named her Brand Ambassador in PR. Her last shoot with the model for her debut at HSN was a hit, getting media attention in Top Newspapers and websites.


The model will shoot in Florida with Photographer Jae Bfaimages Brown in a couple of weeks. Can’t wait for the launch of the Cenia Convy Jean! Will keep you posted.
