Bits and pieces






Today is Monday, but I do not want to frown. I want to try new things, be a shining light. I woke up motivated to make this week the best of it! Time runs, and we think we have so much of it, and maybe we do, but what if  we don't'? 

That's why we just need to be grateful with this day and enjoy it to the max.  Today is a good day to dye your hair that color that you've been playing around in your head for weeks. Or take a long walk and just admire nature.

It has been said that the eyes are the window to the soul. So why not today give a loving stare to a loved one.

Today, be positive, make a difference, you can do it.

Quick tip: Baby Wipes







As you guys know I have very sensitive acne prone skin.  With all the different make up remover wipes available in the market, the only ones I can use are from the brand Giovanni
Even though I was quite happy with these wipes since they were very gentle on my skin, the price tag and quantity each packaging brings was not all that good. I was going really fast on them.

As I was doing one of my research's online. I found out that lots of ladies were using the Huggies Baby wipes to remove their makeup. As simple as it may sound, it never crossed my mind of doing so and got pretty excited at the fact.

I went to Publix and purchased the simplest ones called Natural Care. Girls, I am hooked! These wipes are very gentle and very efficient at removing makeup! For about $6 you can get 160 wipes, yeah, 160 wipes versus 30 wipes for the same price. Also, you get to use a bigger wipe which means that with only one you can remove most of the make up!

So, yeah, that's my quick tip for today. Even if you have sensitive skin or not. Using these baby wipes for the daily cleansing routine can be budget friendly!

Happy Friday!

Romwe Kimono c/o-Forever21 Boots and Blondie shirt (old)-H&M Shorts (old)-Forever21 bangles
Lipstick: MAC Heroine

I am totally sucked into the kimono madness. I see them everywhere and I wish I could have them all! This one is from Romwe and I love the lightness of the material and the shorter sleeves. Makes it perfect for the hotter days ahead of us. Also the fact that it has a paisley print, you guys already know it  makes it a winner for me.

 We went for a quick Wynwood trip and ended up here. One of the first places I got my outfit pics taken! It definitely  brought some memories. As far as makeup goes, I went all there with this Barney purple on the lips and coppery eyes after watching Nikkie's tutorial on YouTube. I did not have any of the products she used but I made my best with what I had and I really liked how it came out! What do you guys think?

Oh! and my son took a moment to be a photographer so picture #6 was shot by him!
Have a great Monday!

FOTD: Radiant Orchid







 




As I was getting parked at my apartment last week I noticed how the Trinitarian flowers in my backyard were in full bloom. It looked so pretty that I knew I wanted to do a  make up look inspired by it. I used a mix of soft pinks and purples on the eyes and my fave lip combo of the moment. I felt like I was in a mini piece of paradise... 
Hope you guys enjoy this look!

Something Borrowed

 

  








Persunmall Scarf c/o- Cardigan (mother in law's)-Urban Outfitters beanie- Chicnova Sandals c/o
Free People Voile Trapeze slip- Macys Else jeans-Forever 21 jewelry- Stylegodis midi rings


South Florida's weather can be sometimes quite unpredictable. After having consistent warm spring weather, we got a cold front last week in Orlando. I've had this awesome Persunmall Aztec scarf for the longest so it was like the perfect chance to wear it. I love how colorful and chunky it is!

The cardigan, I borrowed from my mother in law, isn't it cute? When I saw it in the closet I wanted to use it right away hehe. We took these pictures at  Cypress Grove park. It is so beautiful and peaceful. While our son played, we sat back and enjoyed that overcast day surrounded by majestic trees covered with Spanish Moss.

Spring break is all over now, but I sure have 
lots of  great memories! 

Have a blessed day loves

Coral- Minty Pop!














Hecho a mano Top/ Brown Pants (old)/ Old Navy Necklace and rings/ Disenos Lala lala Mint Turban/ Burlignton sandals/ Claires earrings/ Charlotte Russe bangles/ Pandora Turquoise ring


Today I am having as a guest blogger no other than my sister Nicole. She is one of my four sisters and the one that resembles me the most haha.

I absolutely love her style. As you guys know, she came to visit and the idea of having a photo shoot together seemed like a good idea! I am so glad we did, now I have lots of pictures to to treasure :)

As her style goes, she loves to play with color and her laid back looks are always cool and comfy. It definitely goes with the caribbean vibe of Puerto Rico where she resides.

Her easy- breezy outfit was perfect for the warmer weather we were having in South Florida that day. Pops of coral and mint made this outfit one I wanted to wear myself! 

Like I mentioned in my last post, we took these photos at Wynwood, and I was glad she loved the area as much as we do!

I hope you guys enjoy the post!
Take care

Sisterly Love



 















 What I am wearing: Disenos Lala lala Olive Turban/ Nastygal Fringe top/Forever21 Maxi skirt-bangles-rings/Oasap sandals


Hi my loves,
I am so excited to share this post with you! My sister came to visit me (hence the lack of posts) and we had such a great time. It felt I had a piece of Puerto Rico with me for a few days. On Saturday, we took her to Wynwood and we had a day of murals scouting, Panther Cafe coffee, and yummy pastries. We also did a little shooting and we loved how it came out. I hope you guys love it too!

We got lots of great pics so I will be doing a separate blog post about her outfit and details so stay tuned for that!

 About my outfit, I have been obsessed with fringe, maxi skirts, and cut out sandals lately... and they all seemed perfect to be worn all at the same time. These awesome cut out sandals from Oasap are the latest addition to my shoe collection! I love that they are this mix of a boot and a sandal. Aren't they cuute?

I hope you guys have an amazing week
xoxo
