A Day in Androbel: Update (Spanish Version)

ebb5c-dsc_0311

Hola!

Hoy les queria hablar sobre unos cambios que estan pasando en Androbel. Como muchos de ustedes saben, Androbel estuvo planificado inicialmente para ser una tiene online con una variedad de ropa y accesorios. Bueno, lo he pensado muchisimo, y aunque Androbel como tienda, no cerrara, me estare enfocando en otros proyectos como este blog y ofreciendo servicios profesionales. La tienda online quedara con la ropa que me queda y en el futuro para piezas especiales que me llamen la atencion como por ejemplo: las joyas de Tatiana Cruz o la linea Ladzal Cah pero no traere ropa muy comercial, creo que mejor le puedo dejar ese trabajito a las super tiendas. En verdad si me encanta la moda por eso sigo con este blog y estoy comenzando a ofrecer servicios en la industria de la moda pero en verdad no creo que tener una tienda es mi llamado (hablare sobre esto en otra entrada <3).

Bueno ahora que ya saben mas sobre el viejo Androbel, quiero hablarles un poco sobre el nuevo Androbel!

Androbel es un destino de Moda – Negocios  y la Vida.

Con el blog, quiero escribir sobre estilo personal, belleza, salud, ejercicios, musica, libros, y en verdad de cualquier cosa que nosotras, las mujeres tenemos preguntas al respecto. Hay muchisimas cosas pasando alrededor del mundo y quiero crear un espacio en donde comienzas o terminas tu dia con una sonrisa.

El lado comerciante de Androbel consistira de:

  • Entradas de blogger (styled products, sponsored posts, product placement, giveaway)
  • Asesoria de moda para individuos (personal shopper, orginazadora de closets, asesoria de imagen)
  • Asesoria de moda para marcas/tiendas (prevision de tendencias, viajes de compras, in-store merchandising, photo shoot styling)
  • Consultoria de negocios
  • Administracion de cuentas de social media (facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram, administracion de blog)
  • Mini tienda online

Si alguien de ustedes esta o conoce a alguien que pudiera estar interesado en estos servicios, mandenme un mail a mbaquerizo@androbel.com :)

Entonces, para dejar esto un poco mas claro… NO estoy cerrando Androbel, solo esta sera una nueva etapa y con nuevas cosas que ofrecer, las cuales me apasionan demasiado!

Por ahora, hay una SUPER promocion en la tienda. Hay cosas que tienen hasta el 50% de descuento woohoo! Y si no encuentran nada que les guste dentro de la promocion, pueden usar el codigo “LUSHTOBLUSH” para recibir el 20% de descuento.

Que piensan sobre esta nueva etapa?

Gracias por pasar por aqui :)

Hi!

Today I wanted to talk about Androbel and the changes that are happening. As some of you may know, Androbel was intended to be solely an online boutique offering awesome clothing and accessories. Well, I have really thought about this and although Androbel will not be closing, I will be shifting my focus more towards the blog and different services. I will keep the online store for special pieces that catch my eye. I’m interested in handmade products; pieces that have a meaning behind, is what I will keep bringing to the store little by little. For now, you have some clothes and then the handmade jewelry from Ecuador and the handmade pieces from Guatemala. I do love fashion which is why I’m doing the blog and services surrounding fashion but I just don’t think having an online boutique is what I was really meant to do. (I will talk about this in another post <3).

Well, now that you know about the status of old Androbel, I wanted to introduce to you, the new Androbel!

Androbel is a Fashion – Business – Life destination.

With the blog, I (Belen) intend to write about personal style, beauty, health, fitness, music, books and just about anything and everything that us, girls, have questions about.There are countless things happening in the world around us therefore my goal with this blog is to create a space where I can impact someone’s life. To create a space where someone can get lost and just… smile.

The business side of Androbel consists of:

  • Blogger posts (styled products, sponsored posts, product placement, giveaway)
  •  Fashion consulting for individuals (personal shopper, wardrobe consulting, closet organizing)
  • Fashion consulting for brands/shops (trend forecasting/buying trips, in-store merchandising, photo shoot styling)
  • Business consulting (inventory turnover, buying budget, break-even analysis, etc.)
  •  Social media management (facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest, blog content management)
  • Mini online boutique

If you or anyone you know might be interested in these services, email me at mbaquerizo@androbel.com :)

So, just to make this clear… this is NOT the end of Androbel, it’s just a new phase that I’m really, really passionate about. 

The good stuff? There is a BLOWOUT sale going on right now at Androbel most of the things are 50% off! And if you happen to like something not on sale? use coupon code “LUSHTOBLUSH” for 20% off.

 What kind of pieces would you like to see at Androbel?

Do you need help with your business? What questions do you have?

Needs & Wants #1

Friday!!! Where’d this week go? It’s been a very fun week. I’ve done lots of “non-work” things but has still managed to get work done and that feels good. I hate the “slacking” feeling.

Today, I wanted to start this new series! Needs & Wants :) Every 2 weeks, I will post on Fridays a little list of things that I have spotted, I want or I feel like I NEED. I hope you like it and that you find some things new and exciting. Let me know!

It’s Spring and in South Florida that just means… it’s early summer. Prepare yourself. This past year, I have finally found my love for the beach. I blame it on Luis, his hipster ways and laid back outlook on life have gotten to me so, I want to make an effort and get more summery, beachy things in my closet!

needs and wants, shopping, online shopping, summer, summer shopping, dresses, sandals, summer dresses, outfit,

Viernes! Donde se fue la semana? Fue una semana super divertida. Hice muchas cosas no relacionadas al trabajo pero igual pude hacer suficiente para no sentirme como una fracaso jaja odio ese sentimiento de que no haz hecho nada.

Hoy, quiero comenzar una nueva serie en el blog! Needs & Wants :) Lo cual es: Deseos y Necesidades. Todos los Viernes cada 2 semanas voy a hacer una entrada como estas en la cual les dire que cosas nuevas he visto que creo que necesito y que quiero. Espero que les guste y quizas encuentren cosas que tambien quieren para ustedes!

Es Primavera y en el sur de la florida esto significa que… ya casi es verano. Hay que prepararse ya que aqui se pone caliente suuuuper rapido. Finalmente he encontrado mi amor por la playa. Culpo a Luis ya que me he acostumbrado demasiado a su forma de ser super casual y relajada. Ahora que me gusta la playa quiero hacer un esfuerzo es vestirme mas de verano!

Shop here:

  1. Nordstrom
  2. Sheinside
  3. Banana Republic
  4. Lori’s

Sorry that this post is written as if it was Friday. I was writing it on Thursday but then my computer stopped working! I really, really, really want the #4′s. They are beautiful, right?

Quiero las #4 demasiado!!

Have a great week!!

What pieces are you looking for this summer?

Needs & Wants

Hi!
I wanted to write this because I know yesterday I had put that today there was going to be a new series buuut my computer has stopped working so I’m doing this post with my phone.
Maybe my computer will work tomorrow and I will do the real Needs & Wants post which is more or less like a shopping guide!
Sorry and thank you for reading :)

Well Hello!

With family in town is kind of hard keeping organized but thankfully I have a 9-5 job (for now) that keeps me away during the day so that I can actually get some work done and in that time I find little breaks in which I do this :)

As I mentioned here, I had class Friday night and Saturday morning. Although I love waking up early because I love how it feels when everyone else is asleep, there is something different about waking up to an alarm because you have to go to class! haha but, nonetheless I like it anyways. For class, I used to wear sweatpants and t-shirt when I was in high school but that just as “we are what we eat” I really think “we act how we dress”. If I want to lay around all day, sweatpants do the trick but if I want to get something done… this works best.

Holaa!!

Teniendo a familia en la casa es poco dificil seguir con mi cronograma de trabajo pero por ahora tengo un trabajo de 9-5 que me obliga a no estar en la casa por el dia entonces puedo ser un poco productiva, ya que en momentos en los cuales no tengo nada que hacer… puedo hacer esto :)

Como lo dije aqui, este fin de semana tuve clases el Viernes en la noche y el Sabado en la manana. Aunque me gusta despertarme temprano porque me encanta como se siente cuando todo el mundo duerme, hay algo super diferente al despertarte gracias a una alarma porque tienes que ir a clases! jajaja pero de igual forma, me gusta despertar super temprano. Cuando estaba en el colegio, me encantaba ir con calentadores (sudaderas) a clases pero ahora, al igual que la gente dice que uno es lo que come, creo que uno actua como se viste. Si quiero estar tirada en la cama todo el dia, unos calentadores van super bien pero si en verdad quiero trabajar… algo asi funciona mucho mejor.

Yea, I make funny faces when I have my picture taken. I find it very uncomfortable.

Life: New Book

lean thinking, management, business talk, business, business junkie, mba, entrepreneurship, small business, androbel, business consulting

Hello!

Yes, yes, I’m talking about a book again. Sorry! Last time, I did a book review about a book I read for fun so it’s time to get down to business and read some academic books. I’ve heard about the attention span of our generation getting shorter and shorter and I have recently experienced it. I don’t support it, at all. I experienced it while reading the first chapter of this book and I’m not letting our crazy brain win.

So, about the book. It’s called “Lean Thinking” and nope, it’s not about nutrition haha. As some of you know, I’m getting my masters in business administration with a specialization in entrepreneurship (small business) so, this book is all about business and effective management. I’ve read the first chapter and I love it. I’m a business junkie. oopsies! Business consulting services, here I come!

Well, the first thing I learned was the word: muda. Japanese for waste. Companies create so much avoidable waste. The reason is simple: there is no transparency is business. Everyone wants to out-do the next person and let me tell you, that attitude is just not working. Often times, firms, typically manufacturing firms end up spending more than twice in producing a part just because they have not had the minimum interest in what the downstream or upstream company is doing. They don’t ask because they want to keep their “Success” a secret. They want their “value-added” strategy to be just theirs but the truth is, if they asked, they could be making twice the money they are currently making by reducing time and cost.

Companies, are so, so invested in the financials and in the immediate needs of the upper management that they forget to take a look and analyze the day to day techniques and processes of creating the product the customer wants and needs.

All in all, transparency is the answer to many things in life. It always ends up like that. Transparency in a relationship is crucial. You want your partner to be honest, that way everything works out in the short and long term. In business, it’s no different.

Why do you think people/businesses are so greedy?

I hope you join me in my business talk. Let me know if you like posts like this :)

Good Morning and Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend; I did :) I had class Friday and Saturday so I’m a little tired but it was still fun! Some of my family came into town and tonight my cousin arrives, so this will be a crazy week too. I kind of like crazy. It keeps me moving. Keeps me focused.

Last Thursday, we attended a networking event and met some cool people from the Miami area. All very young and creative :) I posted a picture on my instagram about a little painting that was gifted to me; that’s the kind of creative I’m talking about. Cardboard, paint and a brush. Pretty cool!  This is what I wore:
