Personal Love Life



In this previous years working online I had discovered many many things! some I can speak up and others I could not talk about.

Most of them are events I cherish with all my heart, one of them has been meeting a special guy.

I do not blog about him very often, but he is my friend and owner at AidaCoronado.Etsy.com, I do not think you can ask for something more beautiful than a true friendship, of course I would like to get married with him!, but it has been hard to rebuild my trust in Relationships. (And I did not want to be jinx?), how you are suppossed to said that?

I trust him and I wish him the most beautiful in this Life,  even if our destiny is not to build a "family" together.

He had his heart very torn too when we arrived into each others life, me too,  so, we got to be life companions, as you probably know, I mean, my heart was made tiny winy pieces, because I trusted someone who was not deserved to be trust in, a Mexican Cliche, another one, for a long time, I knew it, but did not had proofs, bla bla.

(I know I have problems hearing the "bad" (as "a positive girl") and was convinced I could "fix" something "make understand" "make them understand my point of view" we where not teenagers anymore but it was not possible so I ran).

Years went through and one day Carlos was telling me a history from his past and I suddenly realized that my attitude towards my ex changed the same day we picked up a guy from GDL that also told the same storie. (Very quite similar in a very similar environment) a story with very different perspectives).

I was astonished (all the people in the car was laughing, as the guy metioned did not know about the Cliche that was going on when he went and help his girl with the car) and it was my breakpoint, I was tired of unnecessary Drama and Unfaithful people, to be specific Liars, I knew he was saying lies, and that was it, I needed to get out that circle of people.

For me it was a "sign", (well "-another-)
I did not care about the party or social friends derived from that, cut with scissors and put around 30 hours in distance from some of them, I just got very serious about life and decided to let my hair "grow" and keep trusting my feelings. (And trust Me ) 

It was a period of days and specially nights where I could not stop thinking, "this is what is going on", this is what has been going on all the time!  And that is what I had been feeling.(for several years in my gut).

At the end I knew the truth, (with proof a long long story full of already known truth), he was hurting me as she was hurting him. Telling lies, and doing obvious things that just make you loose time and appear obnoxious.

I decided to stop it and regardless people calling me literally "stupid" from moving from north to center/south, and from south to norh,  I moved out from there, again. As I said FAR away mentally from that.

I did not met anyone else, I had been with him since the first day,  and I still feel the same love, even, we have been through very hardcore phases. (As I told you Seems Mexico is very small, as in "pueblo chico, infierno grande" but the "creative" circle is even smaller is so reduced you can count with your fingers if you are a copy, (as a writer) how many more like you exist down here. (as Most tend to live in other countries, as I did).

In Jalisco,  Nayarit we are "alone", or I am alone,  my family is far away, well I do not trust in his family yet, there was no reason to let the other girl in his life known where We where living at, what We where doing and of course phones where not provided to "everyone".

My Dad Jorge made my change my phone number to a Nayarit-Jalisco one.
So -no one- from Hermosillo, besides him, could had access to it/me, but the world is very very small, like I said, and as I like to still say:

"El destino, El universo y las Estrellas de Confabulan Para..."

"Destiny, Universe and stars get aligned and then..."

-and everything starts Making Click, click-

Here we are, again another year to go, I hope you can provide us with PAZ and RESPECT, to our work because this is our life.

It is full of Love, magic and incredible peace, I trust him with my gut, of course I get jelaous, he is very handsome.

And of course he gets mad because well, sometimes people think they can reach you out, years later when you already have a "special guy" in your life.

He is not looking after my Dads Heritage, like some others have,  At least one man is not looking into that in me or my life as in He has not interested in my money, personal values, he has seen me with short/long hair, fat, skinny, fit, he already knows my soul. 

And we are about to start a "new journey".

I think he is -the one- for me. 
Yes I still think so, we has the most beautiful of the voices and it is not just how He looks, is how I look at him.

And -for me- it started making click long time ago.

Never Land. 
&
Never Forget

We love what we do


Interview: Aida Coronado
Questions by Waysideviolet

I want to wish all of my Mexican friends a very happy Cinco de Mayo! To celebrate we have a beautiful interview and giveaway from the gorgeous Aida Coronado! Their shop announcement says, “We enjoy bringing our traditions and vintage techniques to this new world, we create and believe in…pieces with a heart, clothes to love and wear every day. We love what we do.” And you can tell!  Each piece is so thoughtfully and beautifully put together. You’ll fall in love!

Q. Could you tell us a little about yourself? My name is Aida and I am a lucky girl who was born in beautiful Mexico, I grew up living between the Mexican and the North American cultures. I was the kind of girl that was always doing things her own way and getting in trouble because of that, I remember a lot my maestra (teacher) undoing all my embroidery once and again because she did not like my way of doing it, but I loved it!
I have always had trouble understanding why things have to be the way they are supposed to be? I am a very curious person, and I love doing things just because I am curious about it and want to experience it, I love my dogs cat Family and husband and feel very happy and grateful for my life. I spent a few years in the USA, and I was about to move to Canada, but then, I realized that there was so much about my own country and culture that I did not know that decided to come back to Mexico and to explore it. And I am so glad I did! I am delighted with our culture and traditions, the magic, beauty and meanings of the traditional clothing and folk art in Mexico.

I have always been independent on my clothing style, I am always cutting, mixing and matching what I have in my wardrobe until I get what I am looking for, most of the times I am not even sure what I am after but at some point I just know that I have found it! Clothes for me are more than just a piece of fabric to cover you up, clothes have a meaning, of course there is a fashion side to it, but there is also a long and beautiful process to make them and have them ready for you. When we choose our clothes we are in a state of mind we want to materialize, when we want to change something in our lives most of the times we change something about our appearance and clothing style, the garment then becomes like the icon that represents that state of mind, and every time we choose something new to add to our wardrobe this piece carries that energy, this is love 

I think every dress we have made and we will make, goes for someone in special, like it was meant to be, I like to think about the girls who wear our dresses, and I imagine everybody happy, full of energy and smiles, like a day in Mexico! and I love to read and see this is what happens with our friends and customers!, like I said before, I am a lucky and grateful girl.


Q. How did you begin making clothes?
I started experimenting with my own clothes when I was very young and learned how to sew from my Mom who used to work as a seamstress besides having learned a little bit at school. I had some ideas while in the “Universidad” about making some clothes, but it was not until I came back to Mexico and fell in love with all the colors, vibrancy and the wonderful feeling of wearing authentic and traditional clothing, that (almost 5 years ago), I started making clothes for other people, first under request after this on Aidacoronado.com, and it has been a very rewarding experience in all senses.

Q. Your shop is so beautiful! What is your creative process like?Gracias! mmmm I never asked that question to myself before and now that I think about it, I believe I do not have a very defined process like such. I love talking to people in all different communities in Mexico, and learning from them. I really enjoy all the history about it, the ancient techniques, the symbology, the art, everything! I also spend some time talking to people who has been in the clothing business for a long time and love hearing all the stories from the 60’s in Mexico and seeing dresses or pictures of the styles of those years. And that´s the way I come up with a lot of ideas and designs, by taking details from different styles and eras and mixing them together to create my own version, what you see is the results 

So I guess that´s pretty much my process, be there, experience it and express it my own way.

Q. What’s a normal day in your life like?
I love that everyday is a bit different from the other, I really love what I do. One day I can be shipping, talking by the phone, traveling down by the jungle, the other day I can be cutting or making something that popped in my mind or fulfilling orders, the other day I can be with Luna, Lucas and Gato. And then the beautiful sunsets.
And in the late beautiful nights editing, uploading, reading beautiful blogs and drawing dresses and new pieces, drinking some late “cafe con leche” and ice and eating “pan dulce”.

Q. What inspires you most of all?Just imagining that the pieces that I am making right now will be part of someone´s life and that share special moments with her is very honoring and inspiring. I feel very happy when I read or see that someone is enjoying one of our pieces, I believe in the power of love and I feel that every single piece we make is a representation of our love for people, every piece we make It´s like having the opportunity to give a hug to someone everytime they wear it, and that is a very special feeling and is very inspiring too.
I like to learn and find inspiration all around me, I love watching people and talking to them, specially older people who always tell wonderful stories and usually wear beautiful clothes from a different moment in the history of our country, I love “La epoca de oro del cine Mexicano”, all the color in Mexico, the traditions, the streets, the names, nature, the little towns, I feel I have more inspiration around me that I can made use of.

On the other side good Mexican Food, paletas and coffe are good ways to keep me motivated.

Dias de Primavera


In Mexico Spring Days begin after the Flags Day and Miercoles de Ceniza, they are considered for some as the beginning of a cycle, a nature cycle, marketing cycle or life cycle, 
It is the "inicio de cuaresma" so for 40 days you attempt to do a "good version of you", and something good will arise.


You can either travel to pyramids all dressed in white to see shadows of snakes literally coming down to earth, or visit the amazing Cathedrals, in Mexico religion, folklore, traditions and vintage ancestral knowledge collides to form part of a
Multicultural region where sacred mets fantastic and magic tales no one will believe are told every day.

Spring days bring melancholy for the Holiday parties, but it is just the start point of a new year full of new wishes and toughs, I know people will normally go to the beach to relax some days, others will just do some staycation exercises to enjoy the sun later.

It is time to get your luggage ready to assist to festivals such as San Antonio Fiestas, Coachella, Burning Man, Vive Latino, LollaPaloza, or your prefered music festivals.
It is the Fariseos time, la danza del venado, music and art festivals, everyone getting ready for spring summer parties and weddings!

What ever your plan might be remember is about good vibes and enjoying the year as it fullest.
