Summer Ready Smooth Skin with Completely Bare


Summer is almost here and I am completely not ready!!! Not only do I have to go to the gym but I also have to get my skin ready. 
Last year I tried a Brazilian wax and wow could I tell you a story! 
To make a long story short (we will have to save that conversation for its own post) I stopped going after 3 times. I just couldn't deal with the pain, I must be too sensitive I guess...
Anyways body hair is an issue for me because my hair follicles are black and grow back really fast. I mean I'm talking literally next day..

I am excited to partner with Completely Bare and explore their products to give me smooth summer ready skin. 


Okay this is the most intimidating product of the bunch because its wax and I am still traumatized with wax. This is the Completely Bare Wax strips that can be used for the: face, bikini and body.

The way it works is you first find the appropriate strip for your desired body part. Then you rub the strip between your hands several times, then slowly pull apart the double sided strips. 
Both sides are wax ready to use. You press onto the desired area in the direction of hair growth.
Then quickly remove the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth while holding the opposite end down. 
Then use the cleansing towelette to remove any remaining wax and thats it. 



I am really excited to see results of the Body Moisturizer & Hair Inhibitor
This product helps:
- reduce hair density by as much as 50%
- reduce hair length by as much as 30%
- reduce hair growth by as much as 55% 

For best results the recommendation is to use twice a day and results will show after 28 days. 
I have been using it for a week now and I will let you know my results after the 28 days. 

I am really excited to try new body hair remover products because body hair and facial hair is an issue for me and since I do not have the finances for laser hair removal this is my option.

I want to try the wax strips on my facial hair specifically mustache area and see how that goes. I will let you guys know my results. 

Thank you guys for checking out my post and let me know in the comments if you have tried Completely Bare and your experience. 
Also share with me your hair removal experiences it makes me feel better if I am not the only one! LOL

Off the shoulder tops and dresses are so popular this spring and they are a wardrobe staple and necessity in your closet. Off the shoulder tops and dresses come in so many different prints and patterns but my favorite is the pinstripes. 

I love this flirty and adorbs off the shoulder Banana Republic dress. The ruffled sleeves adds element and femininity to the look. Aside from that the dress has pockets!!! Girl I love pockets and I am so happy when a dress has pockets... YASSSS!!!

Sidenote: Did anyone else watch Britney Spears Billboard performance?! The best performance from her in years. Go Girl! 

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Check out my article on the LV Guide on how to style stripes for spring!

Neutrogena #StrongFoundation

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with NEUTROGENA and Latina Bloggers Connect however all opinions are 100% my own and honest.




In my opinion foundation will make or break your makeup look. Finding the right formula for your skin and the right color will be the difference maker in the way your makeup will look.

I am going to share with you guys my tips in finding my right shade:
1.  First know your skin type. If you already know your skin type then skip down to #3. Make sure that you know whether you’re dry, oily or combination skin.
2.  What is your undertone? Mine is olive so I like a yellow undertone foundation.
3.  Neutrogena’s website offers a Shade Finder Quiz where you input your skin type and it will select your product works best for you. Take the test before you go into the store. It will make your trip so much easier.


Before I apply my foundation I make sure that my face is moisturized. I prefer to apply my foundation with a blending sponge. I feel it makes my application appear flawless and dewy.
I wet the sponge a little bit, pore the product on the back of my hand, and then dab the sponge into the product and begin blending away.

The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup is great for my skin type because the dewy formula keeps my skin feeling hydrating and not allowing it to dry. The color Medium beige is a little light however I prefer to have a foundation that is light then one that is too dark for my skin. You can build with bronzer and contour. 

I love trying out new foundation. Its the hardest piece of makeup to find for my skin type. But hey its all trial and error right?! 


Thank you Neutrogena for allowing me to be apart of the #strongfoundation campaign and to you guys for checking out my post!

 Have a great weekend!
