NEW YEAR'S EVE LOOK

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Hello loves, I wanted to take a moment and thank you all for the love and support I have had from you. I am so grateful for ALL the opportunities I have had this year, it really was more than I could have imagine. Traveling to New Orleans, Cancun, Mexico, and New York were some great trips I will never forget. I can't wait to see where I will be traveling to next year. This year I will call it the year of CHANGE. I took chances on everything and now I am doing what I love. I never saw myself quitting my full time job and turning this blogging into a full time job. I still work part time which I don't mind it at all. Being a mother of two boys, a wifey, working, and managing my own blog/Instagram page keeps me busy in a good way. Today, I will be sharing how I make time for everything in my life and my top 5 New Year resolutions. Looking for a simple New Year's look, here are some pics. Shop my outfit at the bottom of this blog post.

Celebrating a SUCCESSFUL year comes with its challenges. It starts with believing in yourself and not comparing yourself to others. Being a mother to two boys doesn't meant I have all the time in the world to take pictures daily in different outfits. How do I make it work? Remember, there is always a way. I meet up with my photographers on a day I have off and we shoot about 3-5 different outfits for 2 sessions a month. My brand is important to me so the quality of my pictures for my blog matter. Brands want to see that you put a lot of time into your post and quality is important. I would lose hours of sleep when I was working full time just to make sure I had a blog post ready to go the next day. You have to sacrifice something when you are working towards a goal in your life. Luckily, now I have more time to do what I love. If you can't do it ALL in one day, take a day off to make sure you do.

"Be Patient, GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME. If you ask me, where humans go wrong is with their lack of patience. That, and their recent acquired taste for instant gratification. The reality is that things take time."

Here are my 5 New Year's Resoultions.

1.) Stay HEALTHY which means I will making time to workout 2-3 times a week. It makes me feel good about myself and I have more energy to take on the day.
2.) FOCUS on a goal and write it down. It could be anything you want to change in your live. I will be focusing on doing more blog post and talking about things that you all would love to hear about.
3.) ENJOY what you do in life, and live in the moment. Whether you need to change things in your life, do it. Mine would be to enjoy my boys more while they are little because time does fly by. 
4.) WORK HARD & PLAY HARD being your own boss does not mean you have all the free time in the world. Make a schedule and write everything down so that you make sure your list is check off. When you get a vacation enjoy it to the fullest.
5.) EXPLORING is a big one. Too often we are scared to explore because we do not know what to expect. I want to travel more in 2018. I would also like to cook new meals although being in the kitchen isn't my favorite thing to do.

Sweater Dress and OTK Boots

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

I'm so glad we are half way through the week. I finally get to share one of my favorite sweaters dresses of all time with you. I have a thing for ruffles and this one caught my eye the moment I saw it. You know when you see something you love and you don't even think twice about purchasing it, that was me! It's so hard not to shop for yourself around Christmas time. Here's a few pictures to show you how I styled this dress.



This ruffled dress can also be styled as a tunic with black leggings. I am wearing an XS for size reference, and it still has a bit of a loose fit. It also comes in black and burgandy too. I linked a similar ruffled dress below incase you may just want more ruffles. OTK boots are my go-to for Fall and Winter.

By the way I am so glad my Christmas shopping is almost done. Are you an online shopper? I know I am because it saves me time and I don't have to wait in long lines. Until next time loves!

DATE NIGHT with a Pop of Leopard

Friday, November 17, 2017


Well it's Friday and those days are more exciting because every now and then the hubby and I can go on a Date Night. We usually try to do this every other month so that we can enjoy each other and go catch dinner and a good movie. Now that we have two kids we definitely learn to enjoy each other. Today, I am sharing this look with CHICWISH, and how perfect is this coat for a chilly night.

This suede jacket is so perfect because you can dress it down or dress it up. It runs true to size and I'm wearing a size SMALL for size reference. You could never go wrong with a good pair of black ankle skinny jeans to dress this look up. These are ONLY $45 and are currently available in all sizes. A leopard beanie and leopard heels is enough to add a pop of Leopard. Oh and we can't forget the Leopard bag, I linked a similar one below.

Bring On the Beanies and Sweaters

Monday, November 13, 2017

Happy Monday loves, I hope you were able to enjoy the weekend. I sure did! Friday I did a photo shoot and let me tell you I had an absolute blast. The trees in California finally make it feel like Fall.  I love this time of the year because I get to wear beanies  and sweaters. Today's blog post is sponsored by ROMWE and I wanted to pick a look that is Fall ready! 



Beanies are always a must especially when they are ONLY $8.99. This one also comes in red and black! Oh I even found a cute pom pom ear beanie, HERE! These beanies also make great Christmas gifts. Turtlenecks sweaters are my favorite when I don't want to wear a scarf. This one comes in a one size and if you are in between small through medium sizes it should fit you. I went ahead and linked a similar one, HERE!



I always like to pair over the knee boots with skirts because it will keep me warm. This jean skirt was only $7.99. I must say that the fabric on this skirt was great quality. 

SIZE TIP: My waist size is 26 inches and I'm wearing a size Medium. 

I was excited to get my first red cup of the season, haha. You know me and my Starbucks. I got the Caramel Brûlée latte, and it was delicious. If you drink Starbucks coffee and have any recommendations for me I would love to hear.

Fall Look with Nordstrom

Sunday, October 29, 2017

Happy Sunday friends. In today's blog post I will be sharing this Fall look with Nordstrom. This store is my go to store when I want to shop for closet staples. I know that my clothing will last a long time and will be worn the next year. Cooler temps call for sweaters, scarfs, and over the knee boots just to stay comfortable but yet stylish. 


This "Wool Floppy Hat" fits just right and is $39. It also comes in black and grey just to have more color options. 


AND can we talk about this "Tie Sleeve Sweater Dress" that makes a great closet staple. It comes in burgandy and grey. I am loving the sleeves on this dress too. I wore it with this colorblock scarf  that is $32.

SIZE TIP: This dress fits true to size. I am wearing a XXS and right now is currently available in ALL sizes.


As I mentioned earlier, when I shop at Nordstrom I love that I can wear these boots the following season. These boots are from last year and I found a similar pair for you, HERE!


I would love to hear from you and know what your favorite outfits for Fall are. Also since I spend more time at home, any food recommendations would be great. I would love to do more crockpot meals.

Layers For Fall

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Happy Wednesday friends, I can't believe we are half way through the week already. Time sure does fly. Today on the blog I am sharing how you can wear layers for the Fall weather. October in California can still be a hot month although the mornings start feeling more chilly. I'm sharing this look with Shein and you won't believe how good the prices are.


As I mention, October can be a hot month in California. This "olive jacket" from Shein is super light weight. It's suede material which I love because it is soft. Plus it is ONLY $17!

SIZE TIP: I'm wearing a size Medium for a loose fit. 


Confession: There is something about stripes that I can't get enough of. This "striped peplum top" is from Shein and is $12. The material is stretchy which I love.

SIZE TIP: I'm wearing a size XS and it still had a loose fit. If you decide to order this just stick with your normal size.



Ok ladies if you are into wearing slippers or mules you are going to love these GUCCI designer dupes. These "Black Gold Stud Embellished slipper" is from Shein and ONLY $37! AND did I mention that they are extremely comfortable. 

SIZE TIP: These do run true to size. I'm wearing a EUR 37 which is a size 6 in the US.


Shein is one of my favorite online websites for shopping because they have cute clothes and they are budget friendly. Their clothes is made well too. Be sure to check them out!
