While browsing for the perfect boots for Winter, I came across these flat boots with a twist. I am really into ankle boots for a while but all of these have something special about them. Whether its a cool buckle, a special embossed print or a discreet chain, I am having a hard time picking out a favourite pair.

The cold Autumn mornings have their perks as well and the truth is, theres nothing quite as cozy as staying at home while its cold and crisp outside, wearing your favourite pyjamas and looking through the window while holding a cup of coffee. We shoot these images for Hunkemoller at the new Max Brown Hotel in Amsterdam which has quickly become a favourite, specially because its cozy and it makes you feel like you are “at home”, right by one of my favourite canal views.

I am still trying to take it all in, you know, the fact that StyleScrapbook turned 7 years yesterday. My brain has been such a whirlwind these past few hours, recalling memories, all the people I have met, all the places I have seen, all the dreams I still have to chase. Makes me feel so emotional and I even shed a tear or two while reading your beautiful comments here and on social media. I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet, even more so because one of the most special people in the whole wide world turns 3 years old today and I am grateful every single second I get to be her Aunt.


]]> 77 STYLESCRAPBOOK’S 7TH BIRTHDAY!!! Wed, 26 Nov 2014 16:00:08 +0000 IMG_4020IMG_4018 IMG_4017 IMG_4019

7 years ago, approximately at this time of the day, perhaps a bit later I wrote my first blog post. I had no idea somebody would read what I was writing, in hindsight if I did, I would have written something completely different. I was such a different person back then, I had so much to learn, so many ups and downs waiting to happen, so many experiences I still had to go through. If I knew what I know now, I would have done so many things differently, but I am so glad I didn’t, because every single decision took me to this moment, right here, right now…Most of you probably don’t know the real story of why I started StyleScrapbook, part of the story is still just mine to keep, but part of it has always been out in the open…7 years ago today, I started this blog from the dinning room of the first house I first lived in when I moved to Holland, while Richard and his brother Andrew where sitting in the living room watching a Rugby game;

-“Hey guys!, I just wrote my first blog post!!!” I shouted from the dinning room, highly excited.

They probably thought it was one of my silly girl things and I can’t really blame them. Back then I didn’t really know anybody in Amsterdam, my family was in Mexico, I had just left university back home, all my friends, everything to move to Europe and start a new life here. When I look back I realise how freaking brave I was, I would probably think about it 20 times before making a decision like that again, but why is it that as we get older, we get more scared?…I was so fearless, I had so many dreams, so many goals, I wasn’t going to let anybody stop me.

7 years later I am still as driven, probably double as hard working, a lot more cautious and I had to go through a lot of ups, downs, friendships, betrayals, extreme happiness, and tears. I want to point out the positive as well as the negative, because it hasn’t all been easy and thats the reality, but it has been worth it.

I have said this before and I will say this again, because I can’t ever thank you enough for supporting me, for being so positive and loving when you comment on every post, by following my story not only here, but on Social Media as well. Sometimes I get so shocked and it warms my heart when I get emails or comments form you, mentioning periods of my life, or specific situations you remember clearly. It makes me feel connected to you in some way, because I know that you are there and I somehow have the fortune to have made thousands and thousands of friends who follow my journey. Never believe that I take your visits and comments for granted, because they still mean the world to me, every single one of them.

THANK YOU for these 7 YEARS and I can’t wait so see whats coming next!

A white coat can really turn a casual look into something a lot more elegant. I love this Sportmax coat with large lapels, it just gives a coat more character, specially when you can raise it up like on the first photo… I would have probably worn this coat on its own, like a “dress” and with that thick black belt over, maybe with a cool pair of ankle boots and a messy hair bun but gosh, it was way too cold for those styling ideas of mine.
