Best breakfast ever

Overnight Oats. Best breakfast ever -- Rambling Colors Blog

For years I prioritized sleeping a few more minutes over having a proper breakfast. I ended up always running out the door and grabbing a -plastic and bland- cereal bar and a cup of coffee at the office. Awful, I know! But thanks to Pinterest -my oracle, as you may have noticed- I discovered Overnight Oats. Since then, I long for breakfast. It’s easy, healthy, delicious AND it keeps you full until noon. Oh, and you can sleep a little longer in the morning too since all you have to do is take them out of the fridge and grab a spoon.

Hats off to that wall

Straw hat on coat hanger
Hey there! How’s 2016 going? I hope everything is good whether you’re freezing in the Northern Hemisphere or sweating in the South like me. Here the city is less crowded and everything seems to be a little bit slower. So I tend to daydream about beach houses and, actually, anything beach related. That’s how I noticed this trend of straw hats hanging from white walls. May be it’s not new or not even a trend at all, but it’s a fun way of displaying a hat collection and liven up a blank wall.

Beauty products that make my (every) day

This is NOT a sponsored post. All opinions are my own and the products were bought by me or gifted from family and/or friends.

My favorite beauty products for every day

A few years ago I wouldn’t have thought of having favorite beauty products that I would use every day. When you’re young and have a flawless skin, you don’t think about keeping it that way, you just live. But sooner or later we all have the ‘start doing something NOW before it’s too late!’ epiphany.

And then, here we are, sharing secrets, tips and recipes to look somewhat decent when we stare at the mirror. These are my skin and hair care favorites of late.

Changing my perspective

The problem is you think you have time by Buddah

This has been quite a tough year for me so far, specially this second half of 2015. Some very difficult moments made me realize I needed to change my perspective in life. I’ve always struggled with this fear of not being good enough in a lot of different levels. And that fear is what’s stopping me from doing a lot of things I’d like to do.

That fear is what makes me look like a perfectionist who has a Draft folder full of unfinished posts that may never be published because they’re not good enough. Posts that are written and rewritten for weeks because they don’t look or sound like the content on the blogs I love.

Now, of course they won’t (and can’t) be like the posts in other blogs, because this is MY blog. And this blog should reflect my voice, my experiences, my taste. That’s what it was supposed to be from the very beginning, almost a year ago. And the same happened to all the other blogs I ever started: I got lost along the way because they weren’t as perfect as I wanted them to be.

But today I make myself a promise: from now on I will use this space to share whatever I want, and I won’t worry too much about it -please forgive me if somethings are not impeccable or trendy or elevated enough-. So hang in there with me or run away now… you’ve been warned! 😛

You may find less polished but more authentic content, including the occasional rambling post (just like this one, ha!). And hopefully more often too. I don’t want to let down the people who come in here every now and then, but most importantly, I don’t want to let myself down ever again.

I’m gonna keep it simple and I wanna keep it real.

Thanks for being there!
