This Tuesday, November 14th I had the pleasure of attending this year’s IE Women in Business Conference 2017 were the roaster of companies presenting was just as impressive as their female C level keynote speakers. I am talking about ladies from P&G, Pfizer, Merck, Interbrand and Coca-Cola along with very influential members of my organization.
Wow! And just like that, one full year of blogging under my belt and the surprises just don’t stop coming. I ain’t mad at that! So, of course, I was beyond flattered when the beautiful Briana from My Spirited Lifestyle nominated Sincerely Doris for the Liebster Award. Woo Hoo! Please check out Briana’s Liebster Award post. She is super sweet and this post lets you get to know her a little bit more.
One Year in the Making
Exactly one year ago I was looking for new personal endeavors and debating with my Zambian bestfriend on whether I should take the leap and create a blog. *SIDENOTE: I feel everyone in the world deserve such a loving and nurturing friend like my Siobhain. She’s really a behind the scenes MVP on encouraging my passion to start a blog. Thus, I am thrilled to be celebrating my 1st-year blogiversary on our soon to come Croatia girls trip cruise.
Here’s the scoop
While returning back to Pamplona, to celebrate the last days of San Fermines (the Running of the Bulls). If you are new to the running of the bulls check out my post on it HERE. I noticed that I was super dehydrated from all the heat, sun and who am I kidding drinking. I didn’t want to make a hot tea obviously but I didn’t want the character taste of a tea so I opted for a new herbal tea to “quench” my thirst.
Why Wild Peach?
I heard about this blend from a friend at work, and I had purchased it a few month ago but never got around to actually making it. Plus, I took advantage of the fact that somehow the packed found its way into my luggage and “badda boom, badda bing” here we are.
It was supposed to be a normal day of meetings with my executive director, preparing for next year’s intake and a bunch of other administrative tasks. However, a friendly email changed all of that in a matter of minutes. *SIDE NOTE: Isn’t it amazing how one little gesture can transform your day into the best one possible or the worst experience ever.
Today the sun was a little bit brighter…

Today, I was determined to fight this rain storm with all of my might. While waiting outside, chic plastic umbrella in hand I knew that today I would not get wet. I even dared to wear my cream off the shoulder dress from Zara and my Oxford’s Brogues because let’s be serious it hardly rains in Madrid.
Normally I never have to venture out into the real world during working hours, unless it’s to have a coffee and toast, to stretch my legs out a bit or just to clear my mind. Thus the reason for my bold outfit of choice. Additionally here in Madrid, we are overcoming our second heat wave so I had to take advantage of this slightly cooler weather. But today was different. Today, I had to visit the US Embassy, deliver documents and pick up certificates from multiple departments. I managed to arrive to work without one raindrop to greet me in the morning. To day was destined to be a good day!
Good Morning everyone and Happy Sipping!
Here’s the scoop
Today I am so excited to bring you a new tea post, yesterday while shopping with friends I had to make my routine stop in the Tea Shop to see what new stock they had floating about and boy was I excited to try out some new teas.
Why Asian Wellness?
I am cleaning out my tea cabinet in search for new fresh tasting teas, since this winter has been all about heavy, bold teas and rooibos with tons of spices. Now I am ready to kick those to the side (until the colder months pop back in) and explore new tea options that satisfy my taste for new crisp and fun teas.
If I told you I have been slacking on my pimpin, would you believe me? Well, it really has been that way for the last past 2 months. Lord help me! However, as one of my blogging friends said, “Do what you need to do with your career first. Your blog will be here when you get into your rhythm“. Thanks, Michele!
The awkward lonely girl that lives inside of me.
I have always been a social butterfly by nature it’s something that I enjoy but personally I’ve always been a loaner. I enjoy my personal space and being alone (I truly do), but sometimes I wish I had the perfect person to invade my space and understand all of my corky interests. Do you FEEL me?
Welcome back to the ever-changing world of Doris, where I don’t even have a moment to stop and chat because that’s how smart business ladies do. Okay so are you ready to hear about the updates in my life…Keep on reading
