Weight Loss Jurney

Guiomar SapiComment

Welcome back to Myversastyles Lovers!

Growing up with my family, it was always about eating together and never complaining about eating too much food. Losing weight or positive body image was never the topic subject in the family.  At the age of 16 I was insecure about my weight. I felt angry at my mom for thinking that I didn't need a diet. 5 years later, I was a college student; I had a blood infection from dirty creek water.  I felt depressed; I was skipping classes and gaining a lot of weight, until one of my professors knew something was up with me.  He sent me to see the school nurse. Then I was told to see both; a counselor and a nutritionist. I didn't feel like myself for a while.

Today I want to share a routine that changed my body and life forever. My routine includes healthy eating and exercising. I advise anyone starting a new diet, to do a quick research or visit a nutritionist to evaluate your metabolism type. Some people lose weight quicker by adding more carbohydrates to their diet. I am one of those people. If you are vegetarian, you may have a completely different routine. Check with a professional in this field before you begin your weight loss journey.

If you have a similar metabolism to mine, if you are still young and exercise often, then this diet can be good for you.

  

Breakfast- Don’t drink or use regular milk. 2% skim milk for cereal/drink. Eat an apple, banana or any kind of fruit for your vitamins. For proteins, use white eggs or any white meat. Don't forget to drink water during breakfast.

Lunch- Fill your plate with carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins (Always!). Fish is very healthy; chicken is another protein source that contains less fat. Avoid eating fast food, fried meat, especially red meat. Figure out how to get your proteins, without eating too much fat during lunch times. Also, remember to eat your fruits and drink plenty of water.

During my diet, I preferred a plate of chicken salad. Other times I would have fish, potatoes and vegetables. You can boil them all together and season it with olive oil, salt and vinegar. If you choose salmon fish, which most times is very soft, cook it in a frying pan with a little bit of butter. Never eat fried food during your diet. That worked for my metabolism and I guarantee it will work on yours!

Dinner- I worked out during night time, 7pm-8pm, my goal was to go to the gym energized, but not full! I recommend eating a salad or snack on skinny yogurts and fruits. Find a healthy snack you enjoy, drink plenty of water in between your meals and you will be able to spend 30 min to 1 hr. exercising!

Don't starve yourself during a diet. Diet works when you learn how to respond to your metabolism correctly. When you feel hungry, eat an apple instead of a chocolate bar. Don't order pizza, soda and fries; try to make something healthy on your own. It's fun and your body actually functions better.

For exercising, you don't have to have access to a gym; you can use a small space at home or your dorm room to do some exercises. You can google workout apps or go on YouTube for workout ideas.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or if you have gone through a weight loss journey before. What worked for you?

Consistency

Guiomar SapiComment

Welcome back to Myversastyles Lovers!

I can't believe it's September already! Lets talk about consistency and staying true to your goals today. As a fashionista and business owner, I have tried my hardest to see the bigger picture in so many occasions. How do you handle things not going exactly as you planned, or dealing with slow progress in general ? My answer is consistency and staying true to your goals. To some degree the two things are very well related . When I continue to do my job, meet new people , get new customers , it means that I am being consistent. This also means that I am standing on my goals. When you are able to manifest your dreams with small doings, it will continue to count in your favor in the long run.

Consistency is a big deal, it's what will separate the dreamers from the Doers. No matter what you do in life, you always have to have some type of work ethic. That ethic needs to be consistent. From the beginning, I always wanted my blog posts in a consistent manner. I wanted a post every week, and at least one post per day on my social media. I didn't realize that I was setting myself up for failure. My expectations weren't realistic enough . I decided to approach my work in a different way. As long as I get creative, it didn't matter the time frame between my blog posts. The quality of my work is more important than posting anything to remain consistent. When I figured that out, my focus changed and my consistency increased.

Last, this whole thing brought me closer to my dreams and I remained true to my goals. No matter what you do in life, find a work ethic that fits your personality and demands. Its surprising but cool, to see how easy it is to remain consistent and true to your goals!

Today's outfit resembles a new season, a new month! I'm glad Fall Fashion is here because I get to wear all the over sized stuff <3 while remaining cute and cozy :)

Dressing Well Without Breaking The Bank

Guiomar SapiComment

Happy Tuesday lovers!

Did you watch the Eclipse?How would you rate your experience ? To be honest, I prefer my first one. I watched the total Eclipse when I was 9 back in my country by the way. It lasted longer and I could see more because the sky was clear. I'm so glad it's over, nothing against it, I don't enjoy the hype people get over this subject.

Moving on to this week's post, which is all about looking good without breaking the bank. I mean spending zero dollars and finding yourself the best looks. 

Last week, my boyfriend, his mother and I went to a community center, for fashion unrelated matters. I found out I could get free clothes hanging around the room. I went crazy and ended up getting two carts full of free clothes. I started thinking about ways I could flip them into something more updated . Most styles were vintage, some too big for my size and others I did love their prints so I decided to take them all, lol. My next steps is learning how to work the sewing machine. (I'm super excited for the sewing part...) When it's all said and done, I will be able to share more styles without breaking the bank.

Today I picked this colorful shirt , I didn't need to alter anything in it. The size fits right, it's trendy, the tone resembles summer like no other. I paired it with my favorite jeans from forever 21, and my favorite pair of shoes. They are both very  comfortable,which makes the whole look comfortable as well. Tips for going thrift shopping or choosing free clothes, is to make sure you can use all of them at home. Think about the print, the size, the styles.You can be as creative with free/inexpensive clothes as much as you want. There is also the freedom that you will never have to worry about someone else wearing the same look ;)

The Emily Wig is from the online store @Versa_Styles. I decided to curl it and then pinned my hair to the side to give it a romantic look. I see my fashionistas/ladies rocking this look on a date or a casual encounter. Watching a beautiful sunset the day before the Eclipse is what I did <3. So Casual! Yet very Chic!

Stay tuned for more fashion updates that will never break your bank!

Handle Your Business

Guiomar SapiComment

Hey Guys!

It's a new month, I am a year older and you know what they say, 'little wiser too.' With a new age I have felt so many changes already. What I wanted to share with you today has a lot to do with my new year attitude.

I have grown into loving my career more and more. Which led to less problems in my relationships with people. My positive attitude is on 100%. When you focus on your personal and professional development, things fall into place. Today's outfit resembles all these transformations.

Each day I become more confident with my styles, I finally decided to try the latest trends on shirts. I styled it with a red silk skirt, and my favorite pair of sandals. This look is bold, mature and trendy. The short wig is summer Vibin'.

The look is for a lunch date, going out with friends, or for handling your business as a fashionista.

Tips for styling a shirt :

1- Get the shirt, (your moms, sister, brother or boyfriend if you don't owe one)

2-Wear the shirt without the sleeves and button it down, then tie the two sleeves into a knot.

3-You are welcome <3

Birthday Edition

Guiomar SapiComment

Happy Sunday Lovers! As I celebrate my birth month, I have had several outfit ideas. It was hard to pick the best out of the many ones I had in mind. Looking at this outfit over and over again, makes me know that I made the right decision. This outfit is for the birthday girl! Besides, it's appropriate for a true fashionista that I am. Ladies, this is a vintage classic look Idea. I like vintage looks because they stand out. The look fits well for a little get together. It's also perfect for a brunch date. I see my christian fashionistas rocking this look at church. The best thing about this look is the flawless pants. I'm wearing a size M, and decided to throw in a classic belt, to complete the vintage style. I was a little scared, being a petite sized blogger. I don't go for the big pants, because they can (swallow me up, lol) I took a little risk and it worked! If you plan on going out for your birthday , or any other special occasion, this is the look for you. You can also play around with the shoes . I chose to wear the mules , because they are super comfortable , but also because I'm going for the vintage look. The pants are versatile , I would say wear them as you would like.

PS- Let me know if you would like to pre order this specific one under comments <3

Essence

Essence

 

Hello Lovers!

 

Today I wanted to touch on a beautiful subject. A thing that defines the most significant parts or qualities of a person. Inspired by the festival in New Orleans, The Essencefest. For a fashion Guru like myself, I had to get a blog post out.

 

If an outfit could define my spirit right now, it would be this “Maria” Pink Ruffled dress. I styled it with a pair of green high heels sandals, which blend well for the season. My favorite thing about the dress is the bow tie! There are many other ways you could style it, I opted for a Chic style, very bold move with the choice of high heels. Ladies, if you are 5’2 like me, you would love a ‘Maria’ dress in your closet!

 

I would love to hear about your favorite things from this festival. If you are not into the festival, what resembles your style? Let’s be essential in the comments.

Re Routes, Taking Things Slow and The Unexpected!

Guiomar Sapi2 Comments

Happy Wednesday Lovers!

This entry is especially dedicated to the ones in pursuit of something bigger; a dream, a new job, college application, a relationship, you name it. I want to let you know that, before any change happen, you have to learn how to re-route, take things slow and also learn to be happy with the unexpected. The past few months as you may know, I have been in pursuit of a lot of things. Mainly, I wanted the world/people to immediately adapt to my needs and become responsive to my dreams.

When I started Myversastyles, I told every person in the position of helping me, that I am starting a fashion movement.  The type if movement that will empower women around the world. In addition, I have decided to run the online store because of my access to affordable fashion styles.

Talking about my goals was so easy, however, as people we forget that life gets in the way, and not only that, but sometimes we aren't ready to accept all the blessings yet. For example, I am so glad I didn't get any orders 6 months ago from my customers today. Running a business is more than having a business plan like I thought, or your Cash flow! It's more about learning the entire process of it, you have to go through the process of trials and errors. That's how you learn and master anything in life. Today I thank God for the entire No’s I have gotten from banks. Otherwise, I would be stuck with managing my business finances. 6 months ago I didn't know my target market, how to run my social media correctly and much more. After getting declined by loan officers, I did some re-routes. I slowed things down. I started my “Women of the Future” section on the blog. I realized that empowering women through fashion could be free for me. All that brought so much inspiration and light to my path. I am in full control of my purpose and I am working with what I have.

In the end all that matters is your contribution to society and how happy you are. Success follows when you learn to adapt and deal with the unexpected. I stopped expecting and started creating.  I wish you nothing but strength, faith, and determination to achieve anything in life. Tell the world you are ready for it, and no matter how hard it gets, keep pushing, find other ways, but most importantly KEEP IT MOVING!

Enjoy my outfit of the Day photos

Dress- Nzinga (Inspired by the greatest Queen of Angola, Nzinga Mbandi)

Hello lovers!

I have missed updating you on some of the latest trends. I am back today to introduce to you my latest summer obsession: The floral pants with two white stripes on the side. These pants couldn't be any more perfect for the season <3. They are totally summer vibes. I paired them with colorful heels because its trendy! If you noticed, in fashion lately, there has been  an increase in the sporty and comfy styles, and I am all for it!

Ladies if you loved this look, I recommend finding the pants that a true to your size. I'm wearing an XS and this is how it fits. The good thing about these pants is that you can be totally yourself; they are super casual. I wore this outfit to watch a Play in town, on a Friday night. I felt myself the entire time, and The Sleep On me Vest,  complements this outfit so very well! Enjoy my pictures, get inspired and leave comments! Thank you XoXo
