Happy Sunday guys, I'm so excited to share 2 cute outfits from Velvet Heart Clothing

Velvet Heart, launched in 2008, is a modern-contemporary apparel line based in Los Angeles, California, inspired by love for the ‘California-Chic’ casual lifestyle. Velvet Heart is known for its Tencel®, blues-friendly shirting, gorgeous shirtdresses, casual soft bottoms and jeans, and third-piece toppers sure to complete any look. 

I'm sharing 2 looks on how I styled their pieces. 
Here I'm wearing the "Berry Teddy Sleeve" denim jacket in a size small. It runs true to size. I wore it a few times already and it's so cozy and it kept me warm.

Each season, the collection focuses on creating newness through the development of novelty washes, color, updated silhouettes, and the use of interesting and soft fabrics, textures, print and pattern. Inspired by the California vibe, the collection targets women of all ages who have a love for individual, effortless style that are right on trend.

This "Anita Olive" dress definitely caught my eye when I saw it on their website. I absolutely loved it. I'm wearing a size XS and it runs true to size. It's the perfect dress for Fall. You can wear it with boots and your good to go. 

Sold in major department stores, online and in over 750 specialty stores nationwide, Velvet Heart has emerged as a competitive brand within the contemporary sportswear market with plans for continued expansion both in the U.S. and internationally.

Hey, hey guys, so glad Friday is here. Today I am super excited to share a program regarding my Fitness and Health. Over the past few weeks, I have been using the app Ladder on my phone to help me keep up with my Fitness goals. 

What is Ladder?

Ladder is an online personal training platform that provides people with rewards and benefits of personal training at an affordable price point. Also in a way that works with your schedule. 

Here's how it works: 

Ladder will match you with a real-life coach that meets your style, whether you need a cheerleader, an educator, or a drill sergeant-style motivator and will work with you on your indvidual health and wellness goals, directly through your phone. How awesome is that, I love being able to talk to someone about my goals.

How has it helped me:

What I love about Ladder is that I have been able to speak with a health and wellness coach. My life can get super busy with being a mother, and working full-time on my business. Sometimes I find that having a balance in you life is good for your sanity. Although I have a busy schedule I still find a little time in my day to focus on me. Being able to workout, helps me feel  so good and energized the next day.

Happy Sunday ladies, I'm so excited to be sharing my office tour with you. Since my business took off and I started to spend more time at home, I wanted to create a space in my home that I loved. I have been working hard and saving my money so that I could remodel my house and be able to pay cash for everything. It was definitely worth the wait.

Here are some pictures for you all to see.

I wanted a space where I could enjoy some quiet time and read a book. This Natural Rattan Fallon Cocoon Chair from World Market caught my eye the moment I saw it. 

Inspired by rattan chair swings, this cocoon chair boats a curvy silhouette, and comes with a comfy cushion.

It's currently 30% off with code "FERN30" and I have been enjoying how comfortable it is. 

My exact Marble coffee side table sold out on Amazon, but I went ahead and linked a similar one, HERE.

This light used to be recess lighting, but I wanted a light fixture, This company sells Recessed Light Conversion Pendants which is an easy DIY. Plus it saves you a lot of money to put together instead of hiring an electronist.
My light fixture is from IKEA and it is the KRUSNING pendant lamp shade. It's $19.99 and was very easy to set up. 

Since my marble table inspired me to add a touch of gold to my furniture, I decided to keep the theme going. My shelfs  are from IKEA and they are only $49.99! I purchased the white ones and then did a DIY project and spray painted them gold. Here's the pure gold spray paint can I used that I got at HOME DEPOT.  Between my shelfs and desk I probably went through about 9-10 spray paint cans.

My exact plant is from IKEA, and it was $49.99. I decided to put it in a seagrass basket and it's only $12.99.

My exact desk is called "Alex" and I got it in the color white at IKEA. I just spray painted the bottom gold so that it would match my shelfs. This desk is the perfect size for an Apple iMac in the size 21.5 inches. You still have enough space on both sides to put what you want without looking too clutter.

This shelf it what keeps this girl organized. It's the "RIGGA Clothes Rack"  from IKEA and is ONLY $12.99! It's the perfect rack to keep your outfits and shoes organized. 

My rug comes in all sizes and colors. You can find them at, just click HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate the love. 
I hope you enjoyed my office tour. #GVeraStyleHome

Happy Monday babes, hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was so busy with planning my son's 4th birthday party that turned out amazing this past Saturday. I loved looking at Derek's cute face, he looked so happy.

I can't get enough of jumpsuits lately, especially the ones form CHICWISH. I'm wearing the blush ruffled jumpsuit  and I got so many compliments on it. It's also available in blue, HERE. I'm wearing a size S/M, which gave me that loose look that I was going for. I get so many questions about my bag, it's ONLY $40.99. It comes in two sizes and mine is the size small which I linked , HERE.

Here are a few options for you guys to check out that are currently INSTOCK.

Secret Clinical Strength

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

     No matter how prepared you are, sweat happens in a second, and it can take a blow on your confidence. I will always remember the moment I was on my way to a job interview in the middle of the day, and noticed that my deodorant didn't keep up with me. I am a very ambitious person and never like to settle. It was then, when I decided to try Secret Clinical Strength to keep up with my busy schedule.

     I love to start my day by going to the gym and getting a good workout. I know I can count on Secret Clinical Strength to keep up with my busy schedule. Even getting it is easy by ordering on Amazon. Being a blogger and going to events means that I have to feel confident in my own skin. I have an Ulta event coming up this next Friday, and plan on using my Secret Clinical Strength to feel confident and powerful.

     I have been a long-time user of Secret Clinical Strength, and I love that I don't have to reapply it throughout the day. It gives me that confidence I need to take on my day. Use Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid  just once for all-day strong wetness protection. It goes on dry with a smooth, even application.

Let's start this summer off right with H2rOse waters, it's the perfect beverage to quench your thirst. It is important to drink water daily especially on those hot summer days. But why not try out a water with great flavors. H2rOse water comes in 4 different flavors, wild berry, peach, apple, and mango

H2rOse is a specialty beverage uniquely made of rose water, saffron and other natural ingredients. Rose water was initially created exclusively for royalty. As time passed, rose water became a healthy beverage used by an increasing number of people around the world. The scent of rose water is beautiful and offers a number of scientifically proven therapeutic benefits. It has also been used for centuries in cuisine and in skin care as the ultimate fountain of youth.

Just as rose water is commonly used to cleanse the skin as a topical skin toner that tightens pores, drinking rose water also purifies the body thanks to the flavonoids, tannins and other essential vitamins it contains (e.g. A, C, D, E and B3).

Rose water helps to enhance your mood; it aids with the relief of occasional nervous tensions and soothes the mind. Thanks to its de-stressing qualities, rose water is also known to help with a better quality sleep.

Saffron which also dates back to ancient times is another natural remedy that supports many functions. Saffron eases digestion, soothes irritated stomachs, enhances your mood, reduces occasional anxiety and compulsive desires to eat.

The combination of both of these distinct ingredients and the refreshing taste of H2rOse provides you with a beautiful beverage that will allow you to reap the benefits of beauty and health from within.

Here are the benefits of rosewater and saffron:

- Increases satiety (decreases appetite)
- Decreases occasional temporary stress, anxiety and will enhance your mood
- Improves emotional health stability
- Eases digestion
- Relieves irritable stomachs
- Improves skin texture and appearance
- Strong natural antioxidant
