Welcome to my Blog

Welcome to my Blog.

What an amazing starting to September with lots of events back to back!

Today I would like to talk about the AICI (Image Consultant Association) gathering at The Zest Café in Bangsar (South). Nila Palacios Latin Fashion was one of the sponsors for this event, which was held on the 1st September between 3pm till 5pm.

The main speaker for the day was Cute Carry, one of Malaysia’s most celebrated fashion bloggers. I always say fashionable people are really cool to hang out with as their level of confidence is sky high and they make you feel at ease and light hearted in their presence; Cute Carry is no exception, he excels confidence and warmth!

The talk was about how to make your online presence stronger by blogging and how to generate more sales by keeping the people engaged in what you have to say in order to add value to their lives. I am not a writer myself, I am a fashion designer. However, there are so many things that one can do as long as it’s driven by passion and love for what you do. Important things are the ones that make us feel we count and that we add value to others.

The audience was great. In the spirit of 1 Malaysia, all different races (Malays, Indian and Chinese) all came together to this event to bring the importance of image consulting to higher standards. I was welcomed so warmly and lovingly that I was overwhelmed by the friendliness of everyone.

The theme of the day was Kebaya dress, I wore my Nila Palacios Kebaya blouse made of French lace in a soft delicate white matched with a pink Tube and my Channel/Nila Palacios A line skirt, accessorized with a delicate platinum chain with a pearl pendant and a pair of pearl studs earrings and a pair of white high heels, by dressing up in Malay traditional dress

the crowd made me feel welcome and at home.

So my lesson learnt here was to be part of the crowd, make them see that you really care about their culture and traditions and they will respond to your care with love and warmth.

Until Next entry

I love you all

Hello my dearest friends and fans

4th of July just went by in USA, then 5th of July in Venezuela, two memorable days

The days these two countries found their independence respectively.

Are you beautifully independent? I know the question is a bit weird, but sometimes we depend of some many things in life to feel and look beautiful

We depend of others people’s compliments to know we are beautiful, we depend on the media to tell us what to wear and what creams to apply in our face or body, which brand of clothes,shoes and hand bags we should buy in order to be in trend.

But when we become independent of all those outside factors we finally find out who we really are, what we really want to achieve in life  and what makes us beautiful beyond the human eye.

In my last post I talked about how to make others see your inner beauty and how to make it shine.

Our beauty depends on how we see ourselves  and how we project  to others in order to make them perceive us and accept us just the way we are.

With or without make up, dress up or dress down.

I find that the most beautiful people in the world don’t make a lot of effort to be beautiful because they already are.

I love to see people in the beach because there they are one with nature and become part of it, so

Let’s practice this

When you wake up in the morning go to the mirror and look at that person who just woke and

check her/his hair/ the face and the eyes, you will see someone who is just fresh and natural

then practice to wear nude make up when you go out (if you are a woman) or just leave your hair a bit messy if you are a man, see how many people actually look at you twice.

I hope you enjoy this post

Remember, beauty comes from inside and radiates out

Happy shining

Hi my dearest friends

I want to draw your  attention to inner beauty and how to learn to cultivate it and maintain a glow every where you go.

Many people, especially women, are very concerned about what others may think of them; often I am guilty of that too, we pay a lot of attention to our external beauty and appearance. Although it is a very important part of our being, it’s not the essential thing.

I quote Antoine De Saint Exupery, the author of one of my favorite books “The Little Prince”:

“You don’t see well through your eyes, but through your heart essential things are invisible to the eyes”

So learn how to cultivate a radiant personality, smile to strangers and you will see the positive reaction that this causes on the people you give a smile, a smile is a gift you give to others.

Learn to love yourself for who you are, look at yourself in the mirror and complement that being in the reflection, look at her or his eyes and tell that person how much you love her/him!

When you love yourself the universe loves you back and you will see wonders happening in your life, people feel attracted to you just because you shine and you radiate beauty that defies age and time.

Buy yourself presents now and then, don’t skimp on things when it comes to you, if you are kind to yourself people will be kind to you too.

The way we treat ourselves is reflected in the way how others treat us.

The key of inner beauty is self love. I must clarify this is not narcissism, this is a healthy relationship you have with yourself .

Now put this tip in practice

When you go out to a party where you don’t know everybody, dress your best, wear clothes that define your personality and make you look happy, always wear colours – avoid black if you can; Black says to others “don’t look at me, I am invisible”; now enter the room and greet the people that you know, then move on to groups of people that you don’t know, introduce yourself and say your name loud and clear so people can hear it, then extend your hand and with a wide smile ask the other person’s name, make sure you look at them at the eyes, then say “It’s a real pleasure to meet you”

This tip is to help you create a great impact on new people that perhaps in the future would be your business partners, close friends or even your future husband or wife 🙂

Remember the first impression you give to others is what really counts, that will be with them for the rest of days.

Happy shining
