Cinco De Mayo Dress

Monday, April 30, 2018

Hello Monday, I can't believe today is the last day of April and we are already going into May. Which means, Cinco De Mayo is this Saturday. I put a cute outfit together for you. One of the things that I love about Mexico is their embroidery pieces, I mean I just can't get enough. This floral embroidered dress with ruffle sleeves from CHICWISH was calling my name when I saw it. Here are some pictures to show you how I styled this dress.

The sizing for this floral embroidred dress runs big so I would definitely size down, I'm wearing a SMALL for size reference. My wedges are by Marc Fisher and come 4 other colors. If your looking for some that are budget friend then click, HERE. They look similar to mine but are under $35. You can't beat it. My maraca drop earrings are from Baublebar and come in several colors.

What are your plans for Cinco de Mayo? I will definitely be eating mexican food and having a margarita with the family. I was thinking about making guacamole too for the chip and salsa.

This past weekend I got to enjoy a hair makeover with BLOOM Spa & Salon by hair Master stylist and Color specialist, Jenny Moreno. This Spa and Salon will be having their Grand Opening Saturday, April 14th in Carmel Mountain in North County. The owners Parisa and Jenny made me feel welcome. As soon as I walked into this Spa and Salon, I loved the decor and it felt very cozy. I was really excited to get my hair done by Jenny. I went from having dark hair to going light for Spring. I was very happy that Jenny took her time with my hair and was using the right treatment to get my hair light. Here are some pictures to show you how much I loved the salon and my hair transformation.

I'm 33 and Never Felt Better

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Happy Tuesday friends, I'm so glad we are half way through the week. Aren't you? So I finally felt inspired to do a blog post again. I just got back from a fun birthday weekend and I turned 33. I know age is just a number but to be honest I feel better than ever. The more I grow, I noticed I love the women that I'm becoming. This year I keep challenging myself in everything I do. I did a 60 day challenge for my Fitness and now I've learn to love a good workout. Most importantly to be a good mother to my kids. Spend more time with them by volunteering at their school and making a good dinner. Life is what you make it, and I make time for everything that is important to me.

This embroidered wrapped dress is from CHICWISH and I absolutely love the fit. I'm wearing a SMALL for size reference. It also comes in light grey, HERE. It's fits so perfect and you can even wear it at your job. So many of you love my Bamboo Bag and it's ONLY $45, I linked it below.

The Most Sticky Strapless Bra by KISSBOBO

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

     Happy Tuesday loves, anyone looking forward to Spring weather? I am so excited that the time changes this Sunday, it means we will have more day light during the day. Spring has me excited for the cutest off the should dresses and tops. Sometimes finding the right bra to wear with my clothing can be a struggle. Luckily, KISSBOBO Strapless Bra knows how to save the day. The best part is that the bra is budget friendly and ONLY $18.99.

Here are a few pictures below so you can check it out.

Details about the strapless bra:

Strapless & Backless & Invisible - the stick on bra goes great with strapless gown, low-cut outfit, backless/ wedding/ evening/ party dress, and will be untraceable under fashion outfits. 

Sweet & Delicate scent- the bra is made from natural latex, a biodegradable alternative to silicone, and is infused with sweet-smelling essential oils to nourish and condition the skin.

Lightweight- durable lycra outer is made from superfine spandex for excellent push up without stress. It's totally and eco-friendly alternative that weighs 75% less than same sized traditional silicone bra.

Body Contouring & Skin Friendly & Stability- this particular strapless bra using plant-based materials for greater comfort and a sweet array of macaroon colors for an aesthetic appeal, smooth cups with adhesive inside to provide a secure fit and cleavage enhancing.

Reusable & Washable- it can be reused several times and you will experience no pain when taking the bra off.

Ok so I had a few weeks to try it out and I must say this is going to be my go-to strapless bra for the Spring and Summer time. It does runs true to size, I normally wear a size 36B. Mine is in the size B. I wore my strapless bra to a party and I was amazed that it stayed on all day long. I really love that it is very comfortable and gives my breast a bit of enhancement. When it was time to take my strapless bra off it did not hurt at all. I keep it in it's pretty box so that it stays nice.

So now that I have shared my secret with you, get your own invisible bra, HERE!

Hey guys, how is your Monday treating you so far? As we all know life can get busy and sometimes we forget to focus on ourselves. This past year I always felt tired and thought that 2 days out of the week to focus on my Fitness was enough. Sometimes you have to lose everything to gain everything. Certain things have to end, in order for better things to begin. Your life is never over because you can always create a brand new beginning... EVERYONE IS BORN TO BE GREAT! I promised myself that no matter how busy life can get that I would take time out of each day to FOCUS on my Fitness. Here are some pictures of me wearing my Stronger gear, which is the perfect gear to wear to the gym or workouts. I'm wearing their "Essence Crop Top" and "Essence Tights" which are so perfect for Spring.

ESSENCE TOP: I'm wearing a SMALL and my chest is a 36B.
ESSENCE TIGHTS: I'm wearing a SMALL and my waist is 26 inches.

I have to give at Healthish a shout out for sending me this water bottle. We all know creating healthy habits can be difficult to stick to. Start with drinking more water an incorporate it into your daily routine by having a little each hour. It comes with time prompts so you can have a few sips each hour. Once you finish the first bottle, REFILL. I must say I was the worst person to drink water throughout the day. AND now I carry this bottle everywhere I go! Get yours for ONLY $28, HERE.

What keeps me motivated?

I no longer want to feel tired and make excuses to not workout. That is my motivation to keep pushing myself to challenge my Fitness goals. I am on Day 29 in a row and I can honestly say I have never felt better. I'm starting to see results from doing Insanity and going to the gym. It really is part of my routine now. I also find that working out gives me more energy to conquer the day. I challenge you to challenge yourself and you will love the results you see and how you feel. Fitness is not about being better than anyone else... It's about being better than you used to be.

Valentine's Look with Express

Monday, January 22, 2018

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and I always love to get dressed up. It gives me an excuse to tell the hubby to take me out on a date night. This dress is from Express, and the sweetheart neckline immediately caught my eye. It is currently available in ALL sizes. The material is so soft and comfortable. Here are some pictures to show you how I styled this dress.

My necklace is from Ashlynn Avenue. I am wearing the "Symphony Avery 18K White-Gold Plated Trio Cascade Pendant" and I absolutely love it. Be sure to check out their website to see their other beautiful pieces.

So, it's time to share with you guys how Jesse and I keep our love for each other strong and fun. Being that we have 2 boys is not always easy to go out on a date night. If you are married and have kids, you can always have a date night in the comfort of your own home. In the past he has made dinner for me and surprised me with flowers. The kids have their own play room so every now and then we have them watch a movie in their own room. Then Jesse and I will watch a movie together.  Remember it is always important to make time for each other. We try to go out on a date night every 2 months or so. This time around I would love to just have a mini weekend getaway for just the two of us.
