Happy First Birthday to getLoWorld! ♥

Wow! It has been a year since I started this personal project!

Lots has changed since then, but I’m still learning and growing in this wonderful world of bloggers. It requires lots of effort, time and dedication, but having a space where you can freely express your mind is priceless. I’m still trying to juggle my daytime job, with my freelance blogging, my personal blog, the gym AND my personal life all at the same time, LOL. Oh! And soon I’m adding “columnist” to my resume, to top that off! (Sorry, had to brag about that ;))

So, to all other bloggers out there in the world, I salute you!

Keep hitting the follow button for getLoWorld on WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and now on Instagram. And don’t forget to comment!

Love,

Lorena ♥

Sorry for being M.I.A. …. :(

Lo has been absent for the past few months and wants to apologize. My life gave a huge 180° turn (if that is even possible!) the last four months and it’s been hard to keep on track with my posts! Left beautiful San Francisco and moved back home to Mexico and had a hard time settling in. But when one has a positive attitude towards life and a good support system, everything turns back to positive in no time, and a month ago, I found an amazing job as the head of marketing for a local newspaper, and I continued to collaborate on the side with my old job.

And as if getting back to a stable job in media and freelancing for magazines wasn’t good enough, a great guy appeared in my life and everything just clicked. I’m extremely happy growing professionally, surrounded with my closest friends on the side, and a cute guy by my side like a cherry on top! The only downside? No time for getLoWorld!

Once things at work calm down a little at work (October, November, and December are the busiest months, event-wise) I will have much more time to dedicate to this personal project of mine that I love so much. I do promise to post as much as possible, even during lunch breaks. 😉

Right now I leave you with some of my fashion styling work I’ve been doing for Be Live Magazine, which you should definitely check out! Also, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and on my Facebook Page!

Stars without makeup

It seems nowadays, every celebrity wants to show the world how the really look without makeup. The movement was started by thebeautybean.com, with something they call Makeup free Mondays, with the purpose of promoting self-confidence and better beauty image. Thanks to this, plenty of stars have felt the courage to upload their sans-makeup face to twitter and created a huge movement. It’s become so big it’s on every publication worldwide, even E! Entertainment did a story on it for E! News.

Here are some of the brave stars who have uploaded their pictures. Who do you think looks best?
