And… I was asked who you designed your pieces for?

My designs are for elegant, sophisticated, independent women, with a strong personality but also with a great heart.
This year we turned 15 years old since Evelyn Brooks Designs launched its operations in 2004.
Clients like Mrs. Frances Crespo, one of my first customers, who has surprised me wearing one of my early designs for her professional photo shoot.

Women like her motivate me, she has my pieces for years, it is one of her favorite pieces and she still remembers me. All this and more helps this mompreneur to keep going.
In many ways this hard working lady Frances Crespo, who is also an entrepreneur formerly from Puerto Rico, who has been recognized for her work in many opportunities, she is a clear example that success doesn’t happen overnight, you can build it with your own actions and always having the right people surrounding you.

Cheers for 15 more years of EBD, and for all those beautiful projects in 2019

Frances thank YOU for your trust and preference over the years. Even though we don’t get to see each other often; respect and admiration are always there for you.

Evelyn Brooks and I met in Washington DC when she was starting her jewelry design company about the same time I started mine 15 yrs ago. I’m excited to see that we are still doing our thing and being influencers for good in our communities and respective industry. The piece of jewelry that I’m wearing is from her first collection, it’s one of my favorite pieces and I knew I had to wear for my first professional photo shoot. Keep up the amazing work you are doing, and let’s keep supporting one another!


End of the weekly grind and so much to be thankful. When you are following your dreams of being an influencer for good, you have to get out of your own way and be seen which is hard for me because I’m very happy working in the background and being behind the scenes. Being seen is the only way you are going to effect change.

Esmeralda Heras, thanks for being so patient with me during my first professional photo shoot, the pictures are out of this world beautiful. You have an amazing gift to capture the essence of the soul that only you can see through your camera lens. I’m amazed at how beautiful they turned out and how patiently you waited for that faint smile underneath my cowboy hat to show an appearance.

Evelyn Brooks, thanks for using my picture to celebrate 15th years of you being in business. It’s an honor for me to wear your jewelry because I know you represent the professional business women, working hard every day doing great things not only in business but in your community as well.

Shirley Solis, thanks for believing in me. I’m so excited to be a guest speaker at your next Shirley Solis- Live Life! event in April. You have such a heart and passion to see women heal from the inside out and I wouldn’t be doing this without your trust and support, more like a big push!

I want you to have the best summer you can with your family without being overwhelmed. Balancing work and spending time with the kids while schools out for summer can be tough. Below are some tips and suggestions to make this summer the best one yet without getting stressed out!

1. Regular Bonding Time

Over the summer, its hard to establish a schedule because your work changes, but your children’s’ doesn’t. If you can make a little bit of time every day for your kids, even if its just eating breakfast with them at the same time before work, they will love it. Children love a routine and the fact that they get to spend time with you everyday is great.


2. Unplug

Technology can be an amazing learning tool for our kids, but it can also hurt our natural sense of curiosity and wonder when learning. When banning television and the computer, over time kids get creative with their unplugged time and learn things they wouldn’t of before sitting in front of a screen. In our case we learn how to dance a tradition Peruvian dance called “Marinera”.

3. Learn

An easy daytime activity during the week or even the weekends can include the library or a museum. A local library is a great and cost effective trip while your little ones get loads of knowledge in return! Reading is a great skill for kids to have and it keeps their minds active while out of school. Museums are also a great place for kids to go in the summer. They allow kids to interact and be visual learners. The kids activity center at the American Indian Museum in Washington DC, always offers hands on activities for kids and they easily spend a couple hours exploring and traveling with a passport through different stations and they have to stamp its passport as they go through each station.

4. Plan activities

You don’t need to plan an enormous vacation to make the summer memorable. Things like picnics, camping in the backyard, movies, living room sleepovers, and even drawing with chalk in your driveway can be memories that your kids will remember forever.

Till next Monday;)
