ADDICTIVE... Perfect mix of real life, business and romance
19 July 2016 | by sonia_complixSee all my reviews

It is NOT a normal soap opera with excessive drama and all about love... just the other way round!! it is light, entertaining, witty, funny... no one is doomed or lucky... it is very unique and awesome. I spent nights until 3AM watching one episode after the other...

Why?? 1. It is filled with a pleasant sense of humour!! jokes and sarcasm.

2. Characters lead you in their adventures and show you, with their daily life, a snapshot of Colombian culture. With the adventures of Betty's family and her loyal friends (Nicholas and The Ugly women's club) you laugh and feel one of them. Every time team spirit and deep friendship win over shallowness and opportunism... you feel good. :-)

3. On the other hand Ecomoda's executives makes you feel the rhythm, pressure and dynamics of running a fashion company. Being a business woman I loved the intrigue and suspense lying behind the decision of business strategies, their consequences and tricks to survive.

4. Finally it teaches you values without being patronizing... even Betty finds herself into a lot of temptations! ... victories are real, disappointments too... and before you even realize it, when it comes to an end, you feel like you are among friends. The characters have become part of you life. And you will miss them!
