    With Love, Claudia

    Welcome back y’all! Alright so we are a few days away from Mothers Day and as a Mexican American I grew up celebrating two Mothers Day. In Mexico, Mothers Day is celebrated on May 10th, today! To celebrate, I decided to make today’s post a tribute to my grandmother. My grandmother passed away when I was about five or six, but I have always felt a really deep connection to her. I attribute all of my talents, goals, and dreams to her. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that creating clothing would be what I wanted to do for the rest of my life but as I…

    Twenty Six

    Welcome back y’all! It is officially the last day of April and seriously, where does the time go? Anyway, I celebrated my twenty sixth birthday last Wednesday and was pretty stoked. I am not one to dwell on the fact that I am getting older and am reaching my thirties because well, life is short and you just have to appreciate it for what it is, a gift. And dude, come on, twenty six is like a baby’s age. Now, when asked what my favorite color is I always give two responses: pink and tie-dye! Yes, tie-dye. Tie-dye is more than just a technique to me it is an expression…

    Practice Makes (Almost) Perfect

    They say “practice makes perfect” and while I don’t consider myself to be close to perfect, I will say that practice has helped me get that much closer. Last weekend I decided to embark on a project that has been quite daunting to me for the past few years. When I first started sewing I was very ambitious and would take on crazy sewing projects. Of course, because I was still learning and for the most part learning on my own, many of those sewing projects did not come out great. I never let that stop me.  As time went on I continued to sew but, focused on perfecting what…

    Remember the Lessons

    I hope y’all are enjoying our last week of March, it seems like it came and went so fast! But I am excited because April is my birthday month and I 26 is going to be a great year, I can feel it. In a past post, I shared with you all what I considered to be the hardest part of wanting to be an entrepreneur thus far; a very personal view and sentiment. Today I wanted to share with you all one of the biggest mistakes I have made that I am more than ready to let go of. In life we all make mistakes, it’s just human nature…

    For. Eh. Ver.

    I don’t know exactly when the love for the game started but what I do know is that it was infectious and has been my ultimate love ever since. One of the things that I will be missing most about California this year is Dodgers Stadium. I grew up in this stadium and it was one of those places that just made life better. Over the years each baseball game added to my ever-growing collection og game day tickets. Baseball has played such a huge part of my life since I can remember! I would say that some of my best and most fondest memories were made both on and…

    Inspiration Explosion, Pt. 2

    Alright everyone, if y’all tuned in last week and read my Inspiration Explosion post welcome to part two! If you didn’t catch it, well, what are you waiting for?! Anyway, last week I discussed the process and benefits of creative practices like this one. My favorite thing about this practice is that it encourages me to let go of control and not over think the process. One of the hardest things about the creative process is that there is always an underlying habit of comparing what you are doing to what is popular and what works; it is easy to lose sense of who you are and what sets you…

    Dry Skin? This Is What You Need!

    I just had to share this with you all! I recently paid my dermatologist a visit to discuss the recent outburst of freckles on my face and get some tips on products that could help my dry skin. I have always used Aveeno products, and still do, while their products work perfect for me their facial moisturizers always left my skin lacking more hydration. My skin tends to dry up a lot, especially after a shower or after washing my face. Lately, it seemed like no matter how much moisturizer I would put on my face my foundation always seemed to look dry after a couple of hours. Even when…
