Jeans: H&M (similar one) / Heels: Lolashoetique (similar one) /
Bag: Zara (love this one) / Earrings: Kate Spade (click here) / 
Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills (click here) / 
Lips: MAC Whirl liner (click here) + Urban Decay Liar (click here) /

Its March and that means spring is here <3 Although the weather hasn't been warmer here I will not let that stop me from feeling spring-y! LOL 

My first attempt to bring out spring clothes were my nude heels. I love these heels from Lolashoetique. They are called the "high reputation" heel. Comfortable and classy. 

I got this green and blue flannel and I love it. I can see it looking so nice in warmer weather with ripped shorts, a crop top and the flannel tied around my waist. 

The bucket bag is a big trend this year but I actually got this bag last year from Zara. Its cool and edgy but large enough to still fit your everyday necessities in it.

Hello guys <3 I hope you all had a great weekend. I filmed quite a few videos for you guys to catch up on my Youtube channel. I need to figure out a balance between my blog and my Youtube. 
But I wanted to film an eyebrow tutorial. I was going through some of my old photos and I was mortified??!!! I was that girl that had the thinnest eyebrows and I had NO business having thin eyebrows like that. So embarrassing. I looked like I had the McDonald's logo on my face :/

Now fast forward to now I have been loving the natural look. Yes it toke me until close to 30 to finally like natural brows. I think I am finally in a place that I like my brows. 

I hope you guys like the video and a quick update on my Invisalign journey. I have had such a rough time with the process and I hope that it all eventually works out in the end. 


Thank you guys for visiting my page and for your support. If your interested I would appreciate you guys "Subscribing" to my Youtube channel. <3

Another blogger doing a crop top and high waisted skirt look :) LOL! I couldn't help it!! I found this cute one on Misguided and I liked the sweater material a lot. I paired it with my wool Zara sleeveless vest which I love so much. I need to wear it more because honestly it was pricey and I need to get more wear out of this thing.
These Lulus heels are everything. I honestly can't wait to wear them in the warmer weather. They so comfortable and sexy. Unfortunately I checked the site for you guys and they are out of stock :/ I tried to find some links of some similar ones. 
Side note: I just purchased The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 1 and I have been watching it non stop. Cant wait for Part 2.

Building a jewelry collection: Cylinder Bangle + Giveaway Announcement


Photo: AMB Photography

Happy Thursday loves! I have never been a girl who invests money or have been into jewelry. I am very selective on having just the right amount of pieces in my collection. I love timeless pieces that can be worn with many different outfits and can add the right amount of class/sophistication to a look. 

This cylinder bangle is the perfect spring/summer piece. It will look so beautiful paired with a flowy printed maxi dress or a night out with a sleeveless vest and a great pair of trousers. 

The bangle is from a jewelry company out of New York City called AU Rate New York. When I went on their website I was curious to read about their story. (When a website offers that as a tab I always click on it and read the bio.) The one thing that stood out to me was their generosity. For every piece of jewelry that they sell, they donate a book to a child from a economically disadvantaged background. They not only want to provide great quality jewelry at a fair price but also want to contribute and give back to their community. 

If your interested in checking out their website you can click this link here: http://auratenewyork.com

Thank you for visiting my blog and on a side note the winner for the Neutrogena Hydro Boost giveaway has been chosen and contacted. 
Congratulations to Cheryl! Thank you all so much all of you for entering and I look forward to do my best to giving back to you guys for supporting me and my dreams <3

Playing with Patterns + Print

Heels: Zara / Earrings: Kate Spade (click here) /

Hey loves. The weekend is over and a new week has begun. Its snowing again in Rhode Island and I am so tired of this weather ugh! Spring come soon please.

Anyways mixing prints and patterns can be both tricky and fun! I love this checkered Sheinside coat and I didn't want to pair it with a traditional black pair of jeans. I wanted to think outside of the box so I paired it with these Zara camouflage pants. To not over do it I kept the shoes and the bag neutral. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this post and have a great start to your week! Stay motivated and positive dolls <3

Neutrogena Hydro Boost + Giveaway


Hey bellas <3 Today I want to talk to you guys about skincare and this amazing new product that was sent to me from Neutrogena. Its called the Hydro Boost gel cream and water gel. Let me tell you how amazing it is!!!! I have been using the products everyday for the past 2 weeks and in this harsh winter weather it has left my face feeling soft, moisturized and glowing. 

Hydrating your face is very important to keeping your skin feeling youthful and radiant. 
The Hydro Boost line provides a hydration reservoir and promotes balance. As you apply it onto your skin it locks moisture into throughout your whole day. The key ingredients are: Purified Hyaluronic acid, Olive extract and Glycerin. 

The water gel literally feels like it melts into your skin as soon as you apply it. It is the perfect product after a long work day or a long night out. The gel cream is for those of us that have dry skin and need that extra oomph. It is so light on the face and feels silky smooth. I love wearing with no makeup! 
I have good news for you guys and I am so excited to announce that one (1) lucky winner will win this set courtesy of Neutrogena.

#ConMiCricket Twitter Party

{This is a sponsored post with Latina Bloggers Connect and Cricket Wireless. However my opinions are 100% mine and honest}



It’s tax season. For some of us, that may mean a nice refund is coming our way. Or, as Cricket Wireless likes to think of it, a “MiFund.” A smart way to stretch your money this tax season.

Tax season is often perceived as a stressful time, but it doesn’t have to be. Cricket Wireless’ “MiFund” campaign is designed to help relieve the tax season stress.

Whenever I get money back from my tax return I try to save most of it, I don’t like to immediately splurge on material things that are fun for a moment but eventually lose their sparkle. I’ve included a few tips below for how I use my MiFund to remove debt and meet my personal financial goals. I hope they help you save money and make your tax season a little less stressful.
Lower your household bills: Another example of making smarter choices is to find ways of decreasing your monthly household expenses. I did this last year in my home. If you take the time out to thoroughly check your bills I bet you can find ways to save money. I went through our cable bill and found so many ridiculous add-ons and extra charges for channels that we don’t even watch. I was able to save us an extra $64 a month. Think about it! Multiply that by 12 and you saved $768 for the year! #winning :)
Need another smart financial idea? Check out Cricket Wireless plans: Cricket Wireless is promoting their “MiFund” campaign to help people save money on their cell phone bills. Cricket empowers their customers to make smart spending choices by giving them premium services at an affordable price. They’re offering increased data capacity.

To get more smart spending tips be sure to join the ‘MiFund’ #ConMiCricket Twitter party with me on February 24 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT. It’ll be a great time and there are cash prizes involved, a perfect way for you all to treat yourselves, so I hope you participate! To RSVP to the Twitter party click here: http://bit.ly/MiFundRSVP
