So, I am sitting here typing this post with a gimpy ankle! Yes, I did a number on my ankle and it wasn’t even on the slopes! However, this down time has given me time to just sit and do nothing, nada.
I am on a ski vacation in Beaver Creek and there is not much you can do with a bum ankle but sit. I have to say though, this sitting is not such a bad thing. I am actually just staring out the window taking the beauty in, reading, doing a puzzle, watching movies and yes, indulging in a little reality TV. (Damn! those Miami housewives have Latina spice!) But it has been a welcome reminder that we all need to take time to ourselves. Feed the soul and take it all in. Life goes by in a flash, and before you know it you are on to the next thing…take that time…look around and yes, smell those damn roses because you know what? It does a body good. I may be down, but this chick is not out, and btw the bruise is just the right shade of purple!

Feliz Ano Nuevo from Lola & Paz!!! As I reflect back on 2012, I can honestly say this last year has been a true test for me on many levels and I am quite happy to say adios to 2012. One highlight though was starting my blog!
Blogging has been a rewarding learning experience, but most of all a creative outlet that I truly enjoy! I look forward to 2013 both personally and professionally and I wish you only the best in 2013. Thank You for following me.
The best is yet to come on Lola & Paz!
Now to the important stuff. I hope tonight you share a special kiss at the stroke of midnight, toast to a New Year with a beautiful glass of champagne and when you awake tomorrow morning with that killer hangover you can thank me for the best hangover cure- The Hair Of The Dog. Enjoy!
Curarse la cruda (The Cure)
8 oz Mexican beer (I prefer Tecate)
4 oz Clamato juice
Cholula sauce a few shakes to taste
Fresh limejuice ¼ wedge to half

The peplum trend this season is lets just say pretty and dainty and I wasn’t having any of it…until I found this edgy leather peplum belt from Zana Bayne. Just the right amount of attitude and I am lovin it! This piece was like buying a beautiful leather art piece, but guess what! I found another great option for you at ASOS go check it out…and give this peplum trend a shot…It’s all about leather baby…and no, not in the 50 shades kind of way (NO! I didn’t read the book!)
