Hello everybody and Spanish fashion lovers!. Here in the picture a Zara outfit. I like it, do you?
I am getting ready for my woman making of on Swedish TV4 next week and there are a lot of things to think of, like choosing the cloths for my Latino makeover. Tomorrow I have a meeting with Zara and the person in charge of shops in Scandinavia and I´ll have to choose what to take with me to the program. For sure it´s going to be a pleasure for me doing that as I love fashion and choosing cloths. In Sweden you can only find Zara and Massimo Dutti and I miss Bershka from Inditex as well.
Well, now I share with you news about Zara from Fashion from Spain. The Spanish multinational, Inditex, has exceeded its forecasts for the first six months of the year, with net profits of EUR 628 million, up 68% on the previous year.The total sales of the fashion giant – which owns major global brands including Zara, Bershka, Stradivarius, Massimo Dutti and Uterqüe – have risen 14% compared to the same period for 2009, exceeding EUR 5.500 million(EUR 5.525 million).

Hello!. Do you know that you can get tips on TV from Misslopez to have a Latin makeover with Spanish cloths and shoes…Yes, it´s true!. By the way, next week, me, Misslopez I´ll be on a TV program in Sweden where I am going to make a Latin makeover to a Swedish girl-friend on air at Swedish TV4, Förkväll. I´ll tell you more later. Yes I love promoting fashion from Spain where I am from and I feel happy to be a kind of ambassador for the Spanish brands as well, at least in Sweden. Here at Misslopez´s blog, you´ll get a lot of tips about Spanish fashion. Like the shoes you see in the first picture from the famous Spanish shoemaker from the TV serie, Sex and the City. Exciting if Carrie Bradshaw saw them in a shop.However, to gain a new and unique model of Manolo Blahnik, the star of Sex in New York would have to be in Spain, specifically to the capital. This prestigious shoemaker get inspired of Madrid, to make a tribute to his roots. Like me, I want to make a tribute to my roots, Spain, specially Madrid now where my father and most of my family come from, through my blog, Misslopez. These shoes made in silk fuchsia-purple color, assembled by hand, and with a vertiginous stiletto bending more than 11 inches, the models have the flavor of Madrid in every line and detail of its design, but are certainly the strawberry-shaped pompoms to get more attention.Bright colors taken from the Feria de San Isidro, elegant lines that emulate the motion of a bullfighter in the ring, the memory Goyesco …Madrid is the model for all those who seek to live an authentic experience in the style of ‘New York’, in the second picture, a unique opportunity which will only be on sale in the boutique firm situated in the Golden Mile of Madrid, the posh area, Serrano (like Stureplan in Stockholm or Manhatan in NY). By the way, I love Serrano area! I want to make a tribute from here to the city where my father, Ricardo came from and myself have lived, the capital of Spain, Madrid. Viva Madrid! And as Madrilian people say, from Madrid to Heaven= De Madrid al cielo!. Feelgood if you visit Madrid. You´ll love it! Check out Madrid and Spain.info. See you there!

Here J.Lo and her husband in Miami. Last Sunday, Marc Anthony acted as guest artist at the football game between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets at Miami Stadium Sun Life.

Hello!. I like that, a good exempel of culture mix, in this case within Royalty. Swedish royalty celebrating their roots in France!, as Bernadotte is originally from France.
I must say, you´ll find a lot of Latin touch in France as well, specially in the south of France. Here Daniel and Victoria of Sweden in Paris yesterday began a four-day visit to France to celebrate the bicentenary of the Bernadotte dynasty in the Scandinavian country. An intense journey that will be remembered for being the first official event in which both Victoria and Daniel work together representing the kingdom and the debut of Daniel as Prince on the international scene. According to Hola news, the visit opened yesterday with a reception at the Swedish Institute attended by 250 people.There, the Prince visited the exhibition Nordic Delight and waved to the audience before going to dinner with the Ambassador, the Director of the institute and other VIPs to an exclusive restaurant.The couple was received yesterday by the Mayor of Sceaux, the town where they married Bernadotte (who in 1810 was appointed successor to the Swedish throne and eight years later became effective as Charles XIV John) and Désirée Clary(Queen Desideria).Then visited a chocolate factory and as a finale of his second day in France, in Paris to attend a dinner hosted by the Swedish Ministry of Culture. Princes Victoria and Daniel flew today to Pau, where they visited the Bernadotte Museum, which contains a sample of the Swedish artist Susanna Hesselberg. After attending a reception hosted by the mayor of this town, will return to Paris, where another reception scheduled at the Elysee by the President, Nicolas Sarkozy, and his wife, Carla Bruni. A visit to a school for children who are abused will be the only point in the day on Wednesday and return that night to Stockholm. Viva cultural interconnection at all levels and Feelgood
Hello!. This is me, Maria Isabel Lopez: Misslopez so you get an idea of who is writting…. I must say this is one of my favourite subjects: philosofy!. Didn´t you know?. Finding the meaning of things, I love it!. And now I share with you my thoughts. Like when someone says, “I have no time ” that is the number one excuse for not pursuing a dream or getting things done. The thing is you can actually turn a dream into a goal if you put in writing and marks a deadline. But how do you find the time to devote to your dream, whether writing a novel, learn to crochet, design jewelry, running a marathon, back to college or take classes in tap dancing? Easy if you think! (and the most important, if you want it): 1 .- Make a list of all the things you do on any given day that you do not really need to do, but you do anyway.Some have become the norm.Then, the most common: – Spending hours on Facebook – Chat – Watching TV – Gossip 2 .- Now make a list of everything you want to do but do not because you think you have no time.It can be anything, but I give some examples: – Write a book – Train yourself to a 5k, half marathon or marathon – Go to school for jewelry design – Start business – Take belly dancing classes or Zumba! 3 .- Now set a goal to stop all at once the things on the list number one and “pronto”, you have time to do things on the list number 2. It is about knowing what you want and giving it the priority it needs. It’s not magic, but it works. I have further simplified my life and in the last months I managed to write, study, work…. And I thought I had no time! Well I was wrong! I hope you too!. Life is about finding the right things for you!. Get what you really want and Feelgood!!!!!

Hello!. Here Zumbatwinz, Zumba instructors from Stockholm that together with instructors from all over Sweden, showed their steps at Zumba cruise last weekend. I have been there as a partner doing marketing. I think everybody and the organisers are very happy about this event that went even better than expected. Zumba is very new in Sweden and still many people do not know what Zumba is: Fitness and Latino dance together at its best!. I think Zumba is coming more and more and now even Swedes are getting crazy about this trend originally from Miami. I believe Zumba is similar to Misslopez´s concept in the way that it´s latino to everybody!.
I hope some of the people there at the event this weekend got inspired of Misslopez´s blog and I think it worked!. More than 300 hundred people came to Zumba cruise and it´s good for a start in Sweden. Next time we are going to be many more for sure!
Yes you should try Zumba, come on everybody!. More about Zumbatwinz and Zumba Viva Zumba & Misslopez and Feelgood
