Bless this mess (Look 90)

Some days we just want to feel comfortable. This does not always mean we have to lose the style. There are looks that can be simple, comfortable and casual but elegant and chic at the same time. The key is knowing how to combine casual pieces such as a pair of ripped jeans and a sneakers with a statement piece or a nice accessory. In this case the blazer makes the whole look. This cool piece gives the outfit a more sophisticated vibe unlike a sweatshirt or sweater. 

I'm wearing Bless the Mess blazer, vince t-shirt, Ksubi Jeans, Tommy Hilfiger sneakers, Hugo Boss bag and Ray Ban Sunglasses.

Happy Monday!
Love,

Mika

Inside Mika's kitchen! (Smoked Salmon, herbs and goat cheese Omelette)

Helloooo! I hope you had an amazing weekend!

Time to return to the daily routine. That for me is, try to eat a little healthier than usual during the week and workout. To be honest I've never been like the people who deprive themselves to eat something, I think we just need a balance. I eat what I want during the weekend and I watch what eat during the week. 

The kitchen is and has been an important part throughout my life. From my great great grandmother to my mother, all the women in my family have the wonderful gift of knowing how to cook. I've never taken lessons and that is why I didn't want to post the recipes I cook. But lately, after reading so many of your comments and suggestions on snapchat (Michellesalasb) about the dishes I cook, I decided that it would be a good idea to post some of them on the blog. 

I'm not a chef nor a nutritionist but I feel so passionate about the culinary world that over time I have learned a few things.
I hope you enjoy them and if you have any suggestions please do not hesitate to leave a comment below.

Stereotypemess X Salvatore Ferragamo (Look 98)

Contemporary women tends to fall surrendered to shoes. And I do not mean any type of shoe.
Heels are and have been an essential part of the history of fashion for many years. It is an indispensable accessory  that has gone through countless transformations over time, starting with the Egyptians who used these to fit them into the stirrups during the maneuvers with horses.
Today I would say that heels are certainly on every woman's top 3 favorite accessories.

That is why I want to tell you a little bit more about the launch of a very special capsule collection that I personally love. I am talking about one of the first and most recognized luxury shoe brand in the world, Salvatore Ferragamo.

This time the Italian house continues to celebrate its 100 years in Hollywood with a collaboration with renowned Colombian designer Edgardo Osorio, who pays tribute to the unique spirit that distinguishes the brand. Incredible materials such as suede, cork and colored feathers are just some of the wonders of this eccentric collection. So if you're a fanatic, obsessive, crazy, shoe lover like me, you should take a look at these beauties.

Back to life...

Hello everyone! Hope you guys had a beautiful holiday with your family and your loved ones. I had a  great time with the people I love the most with amazing food and meaningful long conversations. It's always good to enjoy and spend quality time with people that brings happiness into our lives. For me, The most important people in the world is my family and I'm happy and very grateful to be able to see them all during this season. 

I owe you an apology because I haven't been updating the blog lately.  And I won't give you any excuses like my computer wasn't working, or my hard drive was stolen lol. The truth is that I've been dealing with a lot of stress for the past few months. I usually write something before new years, you know, thoughts and resolutions for the new year. But this year was different. I wasnt feeling very inspired, and I didn't wanted to pass that vibe to you. Don't get me wrong, everything is great, I would be very stupid if I'd ever complain about all the blessings I have in my life. But there was something that was off within me and I had to work on that first to realize that life is even more amazing and beautiful than I'd thought before.  

But I'm back from my mental break haha. And I would like to thank you for the support you've given me. STEREOTYPEMESS wouldn't be the same without you, your comments, your suggestions, your likes... From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

I wanted to share some snippets of a few holiday moments... <3
