New Year's Eve outfit ideas

Hey CuraGlammers,

Got new post for you guys.
The year is almost over and most of us are making our New Year's resolution list.
Well I'm done with that list. I won't be making those any time soon.

But for those of you who are still worried what to wear on New Year's Eve I got MOST of you covered.
From casual to dressy. All of these outfits I have paired with heels but you guys can also pair them with flats. Make the outfit comfortable to your liking.

Me, myself and I will be wearing outfit number 1.
But Let me know which outfit you guys will be wearing if you had the chance.

I wish all of you a very Happy New Year, great memories, great beginnings.
See you guys in 2013. And keep looking forward for more of Young CuraGlam with some new changes aswell.
Thank you for all the support this year. Love you guys so very much.

Christmas Holiday Outfits | One dress styled 5 different ways

Hey cuties,

It almost Christmas, in about 3 days. And allot of you guys are still clueless what to wear!
I was too until I checked out in my closet and saw all the single pieces in there. They were just laying around since I didn't have pants or blouses or accessories to pair with them. But with a bit of creativity I made them work and got 5 outfits for you guys by styling only one dress.
So less money to spend and more money for gifts.

First outfit - Fierce with pop of color 

The dress on itself is really simple.
Sinch your waist in with a metallic red belt to get the Christmas vibe going on.
Wear some leopard heels for some fierceness and pop of print.
Pair the outfit with a simple black clutch.

This outfit is a bit more daring since mettalic and leopard isn't ecerybody's comfort zone.
Since the oufit is a plain color you can also go for the zebra print,
houndstooth or even some spiked heels.
Go with what you like to make the outfit your own.

Outfit is great for going out clubbing with friends. Making all the heads turn to you. Giving you some extra attention that we all like.

This weeks CuraGlammer | Alton Paas

Hey cuties,

This week we got another CuraGlammer in the spotlight, a teenager that happen to be in wheelchair because of an accident that happened 3 years ago. He has been organizing an event to help more people that has the same back problems as him. So I interviewed him to let you guys know more about his story.

Name: Alton Paas
Nickname: Papi, Kachí, Mic Peace
Age: 22
Hobbies: Music, inspire others,
Occupation: Student

Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a 22 year old guy that has a passion for music. A guy with a sense of humor. Loves to be happy and laugh. Positive, open minded. A person with courage towards positivity. Loves to help and to be an inspirations for others. Also faith is something I live with. I am a catholic and I believe in God and that He is my guide trough everything in my life.

I heard you had an accident that put you in a wheelchair. Can you tell us more about that?
Yes, 22nd of November 2009 I have had I car accident due to a heart disorder I had at that
moment that I was actually born with but I didn’t know. This heart disorder is called “Wolf
Parkingson White Syndrome”. It puts your heart beat irregularly. Any given time you heart
can start to beat pretty fast or really slow. When I was driving it happened to me and I got
a blackout. The car lost control and I hit another car. I didn't had a scratch but somehow i broke a
bone of my spinal column. I had a spinal cord injury.

How have you been dealing with all the changes since the accident?
Well, in the beginning as I say in my speeches; there were only 3 things I could do independently. Cry, think and talk to God. It was a long process to learn how to deal with my situation and during this process a learned allot. For example that there is always someone worse than me, that I have plenty years more of life and more than I already have lived. I learned that sometimes you really have to put your own feelings beside you to concentrate on your goal. My situation right now is that I am in a wheelchair . I cannot use all the muscle of my body. Actually from my shoulders down has been affected of this injury. I’m grateful that I have regained some function in my fingers. So this in situation involves planning, patience, courage, tolerance, perseverance. All of this together every moment of the day so that I can achieve anything I want during the day. I think my motivation comes from God and because everything is possible especially for God. Every time something happens that I can’t explain I say it’s God because there is no other explanation.
I can’t really say how I've been dealing with these changes I just do it and my strength and
motivation comes from God and other things a want to achieve because I have hope and will
that I will recover completely.
I think because of my positive attitude about my situation and my determination and faith
for the future I get the people around my also to be positive and to support me more.

What are you doing now? 
I am finishing my school. Waiting to start 4 and a half months of internship so that I can get
my ICT-manager’s diploma. I spend my week mostly 4 times a weak swimming one our in
the morning for therapy, and also at home.

Tell us about ‘Fundashon Alton Paas’.
Because of my experience abroad and also the limitations we have here in curacao we tougth
that it could be better. That is why we founded "Fundashon Alton Paas" to raise awareness
and to work for a better quality of life for people with a Spinal Cord Injury. This foundation
was founded 7 September 2012. Fundashon Alton Paas has its first project; Fundashon Alton
Paas to Project Walk. This is a project to send 3 persons including me to a internationally
recognized non-profit spinal cord injury recover center. Where the 3 persons will received a
intense exercise-based program to improve their quality of life for 6 months.

Tell us about the event that will take place on upcoming 2 December.
Music With Fundashon Alton Paas is the first fundraising of the foundation and also the first
project. I am a musician and the things i did with music is in this fundraising. I was in a choir
so we have "kor santa famia". I was in drum- and brassband and also a couples of bands.
They will be there too. Such as BEM, St jozef brassband, CPB, drumband di adventista,
Hershel Rosario and friends, Tumbao.
We shall raise money trough a "Kliko", a recycle bin. There will be a kliko at Brionplein where everyone can give a donation by putting money in the kliko.
The events starts at 16:00 till 23:00 it will be at Brionplein upcoming 2 December 2012.

What are your plans for the near future?
I'm planning to finish school and get a job. I would like to have my own car and house for me
and my girlfriend. Depending of the other degrees that I may get here in curacao I may keep

What are your words of advice for the readers on my blog and out there?
My words of advice is to invest in a balanced life. Don't turn your life in a routine and neither out
of control. For balance keeps every part of you satisfied. Body, mind and soul.

We should all support Alton and the other 2 guys that will be there on 2 December. Giving a little bit or allot, everything helps. So I will see you guys this Sunday!!

Event | Lancôme Paris new fragrance | La vie est Belle

Hey cuties,

Last Thursday was a big day for me and the other TCB girls. We were invited by Penha store to go to the launch of the new Lancôme fragrance, La vie est belle! This fragrance has the most wonderful meaning: 

' “La vie est belle”, a French expression meaning “Life is beautiful”; the manifesto of a new era.  Universal yet personal, Lancôme’s femininity is a choice embraced by women, not an imposed standard.  The choice to live one’s life and fill it with beauty. Your own way. '

And as we all can see, Julia Roberts is the face of this new fragrance of Lancôme's. The design of the bottle resembles her smile. See the curve in the bottle is comparing to her beautiful smile.

So let's start with these gifts. I choose gifts that I could give my fellow Bloggers. Even though its only 5 gifts.

First gift is an Nerd Herder gadget wallet.
When I saw this wallet I went crazy !! I am saving up for an Iphone and I know allot of other friends of mine that are too. And this is a nice way to keep your Iphone safe and your money. All things together in one place. This wallet is so good and it is so affordable.
Nerd Herder Gadger wallet     £18.46
With a shipping of less than £5.00

This weeks CuraGlammer : Jahzara Accessories

Hey cuties,

This week you guys are going to meet a girl that has her own accessories store. She is getting very successful and I wanted her to share her story with you guys.

 Name: Marvienne Cordelia
Nickname: Vientje, Jahzara
Age: 24
Occupation: Owner at Jahzara Accessories, Co-owner at Kompiutertekniko
Hobby: Writing, Doing nails, Reading, Making jewelries. 

Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a very friendly person, funny and always have a smile on my face. I love to support my people and going out. I also love eating out. 

Describe your personal style.
I love colors allot, but sometimes you can find me wearing black. I love skinny pants and cute shirts. If the shirt is colorful it's better. I love earrings and rings. Sometimes I like to have unique things (everyone right?), like a huge lip necklace.
I don't like wearing heels, I like wearing flats and wedges. (OMG I love wedges) Also I am not into make-up, like foundations and things like that, just my pink lipstick and eyeliner. 

Tell us about Jahzara Accessories.
My lovely business!
The name Jahzara is an African name and it means Blessed princess. 

When was your business founded?
The company was established the 15th of August 2011. It's growing so fast and I'm proud of that. 

Since the store is called Jahzara Accessories it must be that you sell accessories. What are all the items that you sell?
Let me first say that my goal is to sell like everything a Diva girl can think about. One of my goals and that will become reality really soon. 
Now we are selling make-up, necklaces, earrings, wallets, bags and rings.

What or who inspired you to start your business?
I have to say I don't have something or someone that inspired me. Let's say the stores that sell accessories, jewelries gave me some ideas, but not really inspiration. I just wanted to work for myself and sell something I like, like jewelries.

Do you have international costumers?
Yes, I have international costumers. When I started I wished I could have had some international costumers and now I have some, so I am really excited. I hope they keep growing! Here is a video of one of my international costumers, she did a review of the items she bought from me. 

Where do you see yourself with your business in 5 to 10 year?

Last Wednesday my uncle got married. I was invited since May when he proposed so I searched for my dream dress that I wanted to wear.
When I found it it was expensive as hell. A $750 gown that may not even arrive as neat as I wanted.
So I decided to go to my sewer and ask her to make it for me.
The color is a popping yellow that allot of people doesn't have the courage to try on cause they are afraid of using colors.

The dress I chose was this one.
