tu salud.

Bajar de peso para que luzcas genial el día de tu boda y sobre todo lograr mantenerlo dependerá de que consigas el apoyo adecuado de un profesional en nutrición, de que se fortalezca la confianza en tí misma y que aprendas cómo hacer simples cambios en tus hábitos alimenticios y estilo de vida; pero cambios permanentes, no temporales.

Se trata de enfoque, de no desistir, de tener DISCIPLINA... Yo también se lo que se siente entrenar y no ver resultados, comer sano y sentir que no vale la pena pues tu cuerpo sigue igual, pero si cruzars esa línea y sigues, verás que con un poco más de esfuerzo la meta cada vez está más cerca. El balance perfecto es 90% alimentación y suplementos, el otro 10% es entrenamiento. Inicia hoy con Daily Detox y decídete a bajar de peso!!.

inas, promover un buen funcionamiento del colon, sintiéndote desinflamada, limpia y revitalizada. Recuerda, puedes mantener una alimentación balanceada y hacer ejercicio de forma regular pero si no estás bien suplementada nunca verás los cambios que deseas. Daily Detox desintoxica tu organismo dejándolo listo para adquirir los nutrientes de tus alimentos al tiempo que te ayuda a perder grasa. 70

Açaí... ingrediente clave en #DailyDetox por eso su uso es completamente seguro incluso en quienes sufren de diabetes. El Acaí (Euterpe oleracea) es conocido por los expertos como un “superalimento” o una “megafruta” por las propiedades sumamente beneficiosas que se le atribuyen debido a su composición química rica en antioxidantes, vitaminas y minerales. Aunque son los antioxidantes los componentes más destacables del Acaí, también es rico de otros compuestos con propiedades beneficiosas que deberíamos conocer. Entre ellos podemos destacar su concentración en calcio, hierro, vitaminas A, E, C, B1, B2 y B3, fibra y ácidos grasos omega 3, 6 y 9.

A muchas seamos honestas, no les gusta hacer ejercicio... Otras ni tienen tiempo por su trabajo. En lo personal no existe pretextos, el querer es poder. El ejercicio es muy bueno aparte de mantenerte sana te da un desestres increhible!! Chicas si están a muy buen tiempo de su boda aprovechenlo y no agreguen un estrés más de todo lo que interviene organizar una boda comiencen hoy mismo a cuidarse con DAILY DETOX, estoy segura que muy pronto al igual que yo amarán los resultados al mismo tiempo que en su gran día lucirán lindas y cómodas con su vestido, y que no sea sólo para ese día si no que sea su nuevo estilo de vida. SUMMER 2018 | WHITE BRIDAL

La papaya es otro ingrediente clave en Daily Detox ya que es sumamente rica en antioxidantes, entre los que destaca especialmente el contenido de licopeno, un carotenoide natural que contribuye a la particular coloración de esta fruta, y que

es precisamente la que aporta esas cualidades antioxidantes. La papaya a su vez favorece y ayuda en la digestión, al contener unas enzimas proteásicos que son parecidos a los que se encuentran en el estómago. Como de buen seguro sabrás, destaca su contenido en papaína, una enzima que precisamente nos ayuda a mantener un sistema digestivo sano que cuenta con capacidad para digerir las proteínas de los alimentos que consumimos.

La sábila ayuda a la digestion. La buena digestión es indispensable para la salud general del cuerpo, y la sábila ayuda a descongestionar el tracto digestivo y a limpiarlo de toxinas. Desde el reflujo gástrico, hasta problemas crónicos del sistema digestivo, la sábila tiene un efecto sanador. Consumir la sábila ayuda a barrer toxinas y residuos dentro del tracto intestinal y por ende desintoxica el cuerpo efectivamente ayudándo a las personas que intentan combatir el WELLNESS / HEALTH

sobre peso.

El jengibre contribuye a favorecer una mejor digestión, porque favorece

71

la secreción de jugos gástricos, mejora los síntomas del reflujo gastroesofágico y elimina la pesantez posterior a una comida copiosa. Las enzimas que contiene el tallo de jengibre contribuyen a la desintegración de las proteínas permitiendo una evacuación gástrica más rápida. Estos solo algunos de los beneficios del jengibre, y tu dosis diaria la encuentras en Daily Detox, ya que es uno de sus principales ingredientes que te ayudará a mejorar tu digestión mientras desinflamas tu vientre.

¿Tu cuando vas a iniciar? Nunca verás cambios si no das el primer paso, haz tu pedido y déjanos ayudarte a lograr tus metas además de acercarte una vida más sana, con mejores hábitos. WHITE BRIDAL | SUMMER 2018

I know the importance the wedding cake is for your wedding. So, please tell me about the wedding cake of your dreams for that big day.”

SUMMER 2018 | WHITE BRIDAL


PHOTOGRAPHY / EA MAGAZINE

These are just some basic things to keep in mind: If you already know what kind of cake you want for your wedding, make sure that you bring an image of the design that you liked, or tell me what your likes and preferences are. Personally, I will take charge of making your dream a reality. The tendency is to have a plain wedding cake, but CATERING/ CAKES

wedding cakes decorated with flowers look incredible! We can use real flowers, or artificial ones, whatever you desire, to decorate your cake. What is best recommended is for you to choose a beautiful and tasty cake that is to your liking and taste. Set a time to order your wedding cake. In general, a cake should be ordered at least 4 months before

113

the wedding. Once you have elected which cake you want and that the cost is within your budget, you only have to give a down payment to assure yourself of having that dream cake. Don’t worry about the delivery. Your cake will be delivered on time for the day of your wedding. We will deliver and place the wedding cake at the events center, or ballroom, where the wedding will take place.

5 ideas

for Your Beautiful Cake Your cake is easily the most high profile item on your party menu and its appearance is just as important as its taste. Here, five of the biggest trends we love right now.

CATERING / CAKES

CLASSIC COLORS, UNIQUE SHAPES:

Instead of making your cake pop by adding vibrant colors, add visual interest by choosing offbeat shapes for a white or ivory cake. This strikes the perfect balance between traditional and modern. BLING:

Add a little sparkle to your sweet confection with cake jewelry. Paired with pearlized fondant, this gives your cake such a modern, glamorous feel.

114

MONOGRAMS:

Monogram cake toppers have been popular for years, whether hidden in scrollwork or prominently placed on its own tier, adding your monogram is a sweet, sentimental touch.

ADDING COLOR THROUGH OMBRÉ:

Don’t want to commit to a bold-hued cake? Try ombré instead to add a touch of color. LACE ACCENTES:

More and more bakers are asking to see photos of the wedding dress, and with good reason they’re replicating the lace details, the intricate appliqués, and the delicate beading on elements of the cake.

Milly +Juan Nos conocimos un 14 de Octubre del 2017, en un evento de un muy buen amigo que tenemos en común, en un lugar que se llama Zucca en Mission, TX. Sin nosotros saberlo, ni tener idea alguna, nuestro grupo de amigos ya tenían planeado presentarnos ese día. Para cuando llegué yo (Milly) al evento, Juan ya estaba ahí, sentado con otras personas y un poco lejos de mi mesa. Al llegar mi mejor amiga me dijo “vamos a tomarnos unas fotos”, nos paramos, caminamos hacia dónde estaba Juan, él estaba justo a un lado de la mesa de salsas que se estaban presentando ese día. Mi mejor amiga y su esposo, le preguntan a Juan si nos haría el favor de tomarnos una foto, para después aprovechar ése momento para presentarnos. Nosotros, hasta éste momento , no teníamos idea del plan de nuestros amigos. Lo interesante aquí es que SOCIETY/ WEDDINGS

ambos, Juan y yo, sentimos algo en ese momento, a mi me pareció un chico muy guapo, que lucía impecablemente bien vestido. Él me ha dicho que desde que entré al restaurante le llamé la atención. La chica que estaba ahí de la prensa se acercó a nosotros 4 y nos preguntó si le permitiríamos tomarnos una foto para el periódico, ella se dirigió a mí diciendo: Vienes con alguien? Y yo le dije, no vengo sola, Juan me cuenta que escuchó ése “no, vengo sola” y pronto

126

se sintió muy interesado en conocerme. Finalmente nos tomaron una foto a los 4 como si viniéramos en parejas. Siento que el destino ya tenía todo esto muy bien planeado. Recuerdo que cuando pude verlo a los ojos, y ví cómo él me volteó a ver, pensé….Y si él es el amor de mi vida? (ésto nunca se lo he confesado) Minutos después, yo y mi mejor amiga regresamos a nuestra mesa y él se quedó platicando con el esposo de mi mejor amiga. Juan le preguntó acerca de mí, que quién era yo, etc. Y mientras ellos charlaban, mi amiga me confesó que ellos habían organizado el plan para presentarnos. Las horas pasaron, cada quien estaba en su mesa con su grupo de amigos, al terminar el evento los que ahí quedábamos, decidimos continuar la celebración y nos fuimos a otro lugar. Al llegar a éste otro lugar, Juan ya estaba ahí! Me impresionó su caballerosidad desde que llegué, muy amable, muy simpático, lo cual me gustó muchísimo! A los pocos minutos ya nos encontrábamos charlando muy a gusto, hablamos de la vida de cada uno de nosotros.

Creo que la química entre nosotros se dió desde ese momento. Sentía que podía pasar horas platicando con él de cualquier tema. Reímos, bailamos, y nos divertimos el resto de la noche. Para nuestra primera cita fuimos a comer, era un día Lunes…dos días después de habernos conocido, al llegar a la cita recuerdo que me sentía nerviosa, ya habíamos estado el día anterior platicando por mensajes, pero claro, era la primera cita, y por lo tanto me sentía muy nerviosa. Siempre ha sido todo un caballero Juan, muy educado, muy amable, y eso indudablemente me gustaba mucho de él. Y así nuestra primera cita fué un éxito, aunque empezó con nervios, terminamos igual entre risas, postres y una muy buena plática . Luego fueron pasando los días, nos enviábamos mensajes todo el día, emojis, caritas, fotos de cada uno y nuestras familias y viajes. La química, atracción y cariño cada vez era más fuerte. Te confesamos que desde que nos conocimos, sólo 2 días hemos dejado de vernos, hasta el día de hoy. Es como si Dios tenía este hermoso regalo guardado para ambos. Todo se dió de una manera tan linda, natural, tierna, -como si ya estuviera escrito -. Yo siempre le digo, que yo le pedía mucho a Dios conocer a alguien así, exactamente como es él. El éxito principal de nuestra relación es la gran comunicación, el respeto y la admiración que sentimos uno por el otro. Tenemos muchas cosas en común, somos personas responsables, con grandes valores, y eso hace que las cosas se den aún mucho más fácil. Yo quiero hacerlo feliz cada día de mi vida y sé que él hace y quiere lo mismo para mí, pues me lo demuestra día a día. Nos conocimos en el momento perfecto, sabíamos lo que queríamos y lo que buscábamos. Cinco meses de después, en Marzo 2018, decidimos casarnos y unir nuestras vidas para siempre. Nuestra boda fué el 14 de Abril, justo 6 meses después de habernos conocido. La boda fué todo lo que habíamos soñado. Nos casamos en una casa con un jardín divino en la ciudad de Weslaco, Tx. Nos acompañaron nuestros familiares y amigos más cercanos, con una suculenta cena, postres riquísimos, hermosa música y buen vino. Ese día recuerdo que estaba pronosticada lluvia y viento, yo tenia mucho miedo que así fuera y termináramos todos adentro de la casa por la lluvia. Y así fué, llovió, y también hubo mucho viento ese día, pero para las 6 de la tarde, momento en que inició la ceremonia, el clima se tornó perfecto! Parecía el clima de la eterna primavera de la bella ciudad de Cuernavaca! Tuvimos una noche despejada, con un cielo lleno de estrellas y una luna hermosa. Y así, junto con el mariachi despedimos a nuestros invitados, los cuales salían felices de haber presenciado una inolvidable y linda boda. Hoy te podemos decir que el amor sí existe, que sí existe tu otra mitad, que sí existe la persona indicada para cada uno. Creo que ambos siempre le pediremos a Dios que el amor nos mantenga unidos, con esa gran confianza y comunicación que nos tenemos, misma que cultivaremos siempre para que nunca muera. Cuando estoy con él, se que todo vá a estar bien. Él siempre cuidará de mí, y yo de él, y de nuestros hijos. Juan es un gran hombre de familia. WHITE BRIDAL | SUMMER 2018

Josh Green +Mayra Espinal

Our love story is a reflection of the kind and providential leading of God in both of our lives. Josh had been involved in ministry and education in various places, but in 2016, God brought him back to the Rio Grande Valley to work at IDEA Public Schools and ReSOCIETY / WEDDINGS

deemer Bible Church. Mayra had been praying about missions that summer, and a friend invited her to visit Redeemer Bible Church during a series on missions. After visiting Redeemer several times during the summer, Mayra walked into church one Sunday morning in July to hear Josh preach a message to the congregation from the book of Ruth. She was fascinated with his passion for the Word and for people and decided to get to know him better. We both sat together after church that Sunday during one of Redeemer’s group

131

discussions, and Mayra asked a TON of questions about Redeemer and we both talked and laughed a bunch! Josh asked Mayra and her brother and sister to go to lunch to get to know one another better. That was the first of many meals, phone conversations, texts and adventures that we would share over the following months. Eventually on one fateful evening in September, Josh asked Mayra to go to dinner because he needed to ask her something. At dinner, Josh confessed his feelings to Mayra and she reciprocated the affection. We officially started dating on September 7, 2018. We began praying with each other every night and spending more and more time together. As we began dating and living our lives in community, we began to see continuous confirmation of God’s work in our relationship from both our family and friends. We were both convinced quickly that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together serving Christ.

In late December, we began talking about engagement, but Mayra did not expect that Josh already had a ring for the occasion. He conspired with her coworkers to surprise her by planning an elaborate fake magazine photoshoot for her supervisor’s decor business at Fireman’s Park in McAllen. When she arrived, she found a table full of roses and candles with pictures of the two of them. Josh appeared from the side and walked over to her, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. He quoted a line from her favorite move Pride and Prejudice, “You have bewitched both body and soul, and I never wish to depart from you from this moment on.” Mayra excitedly answered... Yes!

We decided to get married in spring since Mayra always wanted to have an outdoor wedding. That meant we had about four months to plan our wedding, and much to our delight, God was faithful in making everything come together. We are so grateful for all our friends and family who have supported us with prayers, kind words and friendship.
