While doing the daily blog viewing, some shocking news caught my attention: Zara stealing pictures from a blogger to use it as material for a t-shirt. :O WOW! And apparently it's not the first time it happens :s Below, the pictures of 3 different bloggers whose pictures were stolen without any kind of notice or credit.

I made...

This time I made chocolate tres leches. A spin on a normal tres leches, a popular dessert here in El Salvador as well as in the rest of Latin America. A tres leches dessert is basically a sponge cake soaked with evaporated milk, condensed milk, and whole milk, hence its name (three milks); and covered with some frosting and cinnamon. Super light, moist and delicious. 

My take on this dessert came up because a girl in college asked me if I could make a chocolate tres leches, she needed it for a project for a class. So yeah, I had never made it before but I thought it wouldn't be much different than making the regular version that I think I've mastered ;) In the end I made it, added a bit of chocolate to the cake and the milk and this is what it turned out to be.

Esta vez hice un tres leches de chocolate. Un par de cambios a un tres leches, postre tan popular aqu en El Salvador como en el resto de America Latina. Es básicamente una torta bañada de leche evaporada, leche condensada y leche entera, por eso es así su nombre. también va cubierto con turrón y un poco de canela.

La idea del tres leches de chocolate surgió cuando una chica en la Universidad me preguntó si podía hacerlo ya que necesitaría para un proyecto de una clase. Le dije que si, aunque jamás lo había hecho de chocolate pero pensé que no iba a ser mas complicado que la version normal, que creo que ya lo tengo dominado ;) Al final lo hice agregando un poco de chocolate tanto a la torta como a la leche, quedo asi:

I could finally taste it when I came back home since they had to see what it looked like whole :'( but all I can say is that it was well worth the wait cause it was delicious!
Lo pude probar hasta que regrese a casa porque no lo podia partir antes para que vieran la presentación del postre entero :'( pero estaba increiblemente bueno!

P.S. I got asked me to make 15 tres leches desserts :D woohoo! Great business.
P.D. Me han hecho un pedido de 15 tres leches :D woohoo gran negocio.

I would have never imagined that a class project would turn out to be something I really liked and that I'd even use! Above, the result of one day of twisting and cutting wire and cork. A long necklace made completely by hand by ME! :D I'm excited!! Took me forever but it's finally done! The first necklace is a "statement necklace" also made with cork, that was the first one I ever made... like months ago and way easier than the second one. Hope u like them! DIY accessories that you can try to make :)

Nunca imagine que un trabajo de la Universidad iba a ser algo que disfrutaría y que hasta usaría! He aquí los resultados de un día completo de doblar y cortar alambre y corcho. Un collar largo hecho completamente a mano por mi! :D Me emociona mucho porque a pesar que me tomo siglos terminarlo, ya está! El primer collar también lo hice usando corcho...ese fue el primero que hice, hace meses y fue mucho más fácil. Bueno, espero les guste! Accesorios DIY que pueden intentar hacer :)

Fashion Week?

According to this banner, the Siman "Fashion Week" starts today at 6:00 PM. It's more like 3 days of fashion but oh well.. think I'm going to the second one to see what's it all about, just because I think they're going to be the same thing -_-. It's being held by Siman, the most important local department store. 
Hmm... I think a true Fashion Week should exist! I believe there are enough stores and designers here that could participate to fill in a whole week. Someday... :p
I'll post pictures of the show if I can get anything that's worth it.

Así como lo dice el banner, hoy a las 6 de la tarde comienza el Fashion week de Almacenes Siman (la cadena de tiendas departamentales local más importante) Aunque es más como tres días de moda, creo que iré a ver el segundo shows porque creo van a ser la misma cosa en diferentes lugares :s
Yo creo que debería haber un Fashion Week de verdad aquí.... creo que existen suficientes tiendas y diseñadores para rellenar una semana...pero bueno, a ver si pasa algún día.

Weekend Shopping

This is the greatest result of my weekend shopping! I'm excited with the purchases made (I'll show you the other things later) :) Shoes aahh don't know if I mentioned it before but I'm an addict. I love this pair! Loved it since I saw my sister wearing the same ones so why not get a pair of these lovelies for myself too? 
And here they are! I'm absolutely sure these will kill my feet but it's all worth it XD

Este es el mejor resultado de mi día de compras el fin de semana! Compré unas cuantas cositas pero se las muestro después. No sé si lo había mencionado antes, pero soy una adicta a los zapatos. Y me encanta este par! Me enamore de ellos desde que se los vi puestos a mi hermana y porqué no comprarme un par para mi también? :p Asi que los compré y aquí están! Estoy más que segura que van a  matar mis pies pero valen la pena!

Look out for these

As seen in the pictures below from different websites and blogs there are several, if we can call, trends that have been around for some time and we should be looking out for and trying out :) You can either go for a bold look with a mix of them or use them in accessories, bags and/or shoes for a more subtle but fashionable effect. 

Combinations of colors Black, Gray, Camel, Red. Leopard print. And a bit of the military trend.
Anyway, give them a try, I'll do so myself. ;) And now some pictures for inspiration.

Como se puede ver en las fotos a continuación, en la web se pueden encontrar varios "trends", si es que se se les puede llamar así, que han estado ya en la escena por un tiempo y que deberíamos mantenerlos en la mira y estar probándolos. :) Puedes ir tanto con una mezcla de éstos para obtener un look muy marcado o puedes usarlos en accesiorios, bolsos y/o zapatos para tener un efecto más sutil pero muy a la moda. 

Combinaciones de colores negro, grises, camel, rojo. El estampado de leopardo y un poco de influencia militar.

H&M Pants

These are the Givenchy inspired pants by H&M. 3 different ways to style pants with a bold black and white print. Not really common to see people wearing in the country, but I'm dying to get my hands on these even if I have people staring at me! haha. Too bad there's no H&M to be found around here :( 

From left to right: Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, Andy Torres, and Chiara Ferragni 

What do you think? Who styled it and wore it best?

Rainy Sunday

It has been raining all day. Think it hasn't stopped since yesterday night. It's all a love-hate thing... I absolutely love rain when I go to bed and because I get to wear clothes that I almost never wear (not really compatible with the everyday heat!) Hate it cause it messes with my hair, my shoes get all wet, and it gets boring and COLD after a while.

Anyway... while doing my daily blog browsing I saw this picture that I immediatelty fell in love with!

This is the cutest thing I've seen!
Lo quiero!!

I'll accept this as a late birthday present! :) Thanks

Movie time!

Sorry for the lack of updates but I've had barely any time for anything! Baby showers, Mother's Day celebrations, work, and whatnot. But just now I decided to make a quick post related to food :)
It's about 11:10 P.M. and I'm still awake when I should be sleeping (class tomorrow at 6:30 A.M. -___- uughh terrible) Doing what?
Watching a movie... Julie & Julia. CAN'T BELIEVE I had not seen it! The foodie in me is so disappointed right now! hahaha! Totally recommend it :D

Anyway, I simply LOVED the movie... It even makes me  want to do some crazy thing like that... taking on cookbooks and trying to make every single recipe in them. I don't know, maybe I'll give it a try someday and tell you all about it. But for now I have to go to bed.

Good night everyone :)

One thousand looks

So after months of saying I'd start a blog... I finally have one :)
Finding the time to do so was not easy due to classes, tests and work. Finding the ideal name was not easy either but after several brainstorming sessions with my sister we came up with something that's great :D "One thousand looks" This has a story behind it and it goes back to when I was in school.

Since back then, my style has been changing always, some can say I'm a girly-girl while others say I'm more of a punk-rock girl, or somehing in between. By the end of senior year I was the girl with the thousand looks: "la mil looks". So what better name for my blog?

And what is this blog about?
My main focus is fashion (what I wear, what others wear in this and other countries, trends, shows, etc.), but there will also be a lot about my love for food, beauty, travel, and everyday life.
