I choose their "BECCA PEPLUM TOP" which goes perfect with these Reindeer Legging! It also comes in Grey, Burgandy, Charcol, Teal, Navy, Olive, and Purple. It fits TTS, I am wearing a SMALL for size refrence. 

What girl doesn't like to wear beainies in the FALL/WINTER season?... I know I do!! I choose their red "SLOUCH KNIT BEANIE" which also comes in Ivory, Mint, Navy Blue, Black, Red, Grey, Olive Green, and Khaki. The best part about these is that they are ONLY $9.95.

These Reindeer Leggings are my favorite. I love the red snow flakes on these. I can't say it enough but their legging are super soft and comfy. They are also thick so you can wear them out and not worry about them being transparent. This outfit is perfect for the holidays. If you want these I would definitely purchase them ASAP because they are only $5.95! YES, that is it! PLUS you can use my code: "GVERA15" to get 15% off your entire purchase. 

All pictures were taken by my AMAZING Photographer Jayna, please check out her Facebook page: SIMPLY JAYNA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

These booties have been on major repeat since I had them. I love that I can dress them up or dress them down. I normally wear a size 6 and these fit perfectly. They also come in Taupe. You can find them under the "Tiffany Booties"  and they are $37.95!

Happy Monday friends, anyone excited for a short week?.... I only work 3 days this week and then I have a four day weekend. I can't wait to spend it with my family. Today's Blog post is about my recent experience at The Grand Opening with TOP SHELF BEAUTY BAR. I wanted to thank Chanell (owner) for inviting me, and Congratulate her on her successful business.

This is Chanell the owner and creater of Top Shelf. 

What motivated her to start this business?

She has a love for makeup, skin care, hair care, nails and of course LASHES inspired its creation. Beauty has been in her life since she was a young girl. Her biggest reason for being in the beauty industry is to make woman feel beautiful from the inside out. She started getting eyelash extensions in 2013 and loved them ever since.

Let's talk about how much fun the party was, here are some pictures of me and the girls.

Those cake pops were delicious. 

What is Top Shelf about?...

Top Shelf is a splendid escape from your day in a bar type atmosphere. Visitors can spend their “happy hour” enjoying the services of our beauty-tenders ranging from eyelash extensions to massage, or spray tans and facials. We have something to satisfy both men and women on our decadent “Bar” menu. A complimentary “juice” bar is located in each treatment room where guests can recharge their electronics while relaxing during their services. Retail therapy is offered with a perfect blend of luxury and wellness products. Please remember to visit our touch up bar before you leave to try the latest trends in cosmetics. 

Let's talk about my experience with eye lash extensions....

I started getting eyelash extensions since October of 2016, before I went on my Nashville Trip. I always thought about getting them but I never had an actual friend that had them. I would admire them on other girls, but could never bring myself to getting them. My friend Ashley had just started getting hers done, and she seem very happy. Personally for me it was about finding the right person who would take their time on me. The girl that does my lashes is Taylor Anthon, and I must say she does an amazing job and knows how to make a girl happy. 
Lashes are truly life changing, it's nice to wake up every morning and not have to worry about wearing mascara. They last me about 3-4 weeks at the longest. I go in every 3 weeks now. I have the same routine of washing my face as before when I didn't have extensions. I'm an eyeshadow kind of girl and would notice that the excess powder would get on my lashes. It would really bother me because I felt like my lashes were not very noticeable. So I started using a product name BELLA LASH which is an eyelash extension sealer. 
This eyelash extension sealer helps to cure adhesive and nourish natural lashes to help eyelash extensions last longer.
Love using this product and I definitely recommend it, it makes your lashes look new and clean.
If you are considering getting your lashes done, be sure to stop by TOP SHELF BEAUTY BAR, located in downtown Pleasanton, CA. Be sure to tell them that Gabriela Vera recommended you.

I still have yet to try these other services such as Facials, Makeup, Massage (I could really use one of those), Waxing, and Spray Tanning.

Thank you for allowing me to be me.


Classy and Casual

I have teamed up with SIMPLE ADDICTION to bring you today's blog post. This is my second blog post with them, and I must say it has been a pleasure working with them. Today's look is all about a comfy chic look for a day in downtown Turlock. I decided to go with a striped lace up top, black distressed jeans, and booties. Follow them on INSTAGRAM: @simpleaddiction to check out their latest styles. Here are some pictures to show you how I styled one of my favorite outfits from them.

My striped lace up top is under the "Camila Stripe Top" and it's ONLY $22.95. It runs TTS, and I am wearing a SMALL for size reference. It also comes in burgundy, olive, and charcoal. All sizes are currently available. Did I mention?... It also has a hoodie, which made me love this top even more.

My sunglasses are from DIFF Eyewear and I love the story about this company. For every pair of sunglasses sold, they donate a pair of reading glasses to someone in need. I'm all about supporting a great company. You can use code "GVERASTYLE15" to get 15% off your purchase.

I find it hard to come across a good pair of distressed jeans, and I must say that Simple Addiction has the perfect pair. My waist is 25 inches and the size 3 fit perfectly. When it comes to purchasing a pair of jeans, I look for great quality in the fabric and these are so soft. If you don't own a pair, order a pair of these.
