HOW TO UPGRADE YOUR EVERDAY LEGGINGS!

Hello everyone,


We're levitating today...why you may ask? Simply because we're upgrading our everyday leggings into something a little extra. I call this unordinary and very extraordinary!😁 

Leggings are so great for this time of year where it's beginning to feel a bit more like autumn, but there is still so much sunshine warming up our days. It's just perfect!!! This is the time when I absolutely love combing long bottoms with cute everyday tops like a fun tee or a nice cami. Plus, you can't go wrong with athleisure when you want comfort and style mixed into one. It's a duo that's hard to resist since we've gotten used to sporting loungewear for the past year and a half. Everyday leggings have become the new norm not only for the gym, but well beyond it. When was the last time you wore something other than leggings? Be honest!!!

Before I get into the fun ways to elevate your leggings, I would love to know, where do you like to shop for leggings? Is there any awesome brand I should most definitely know about?      






There are so many ways to tweak your leggings and make them work for various occasions. Plus, there's always the option of going full on athleisure wear since that's super trendy, looks awesome and is hundred percent comfortable. The kind of streetstyle that anyone can pull-off and add their own twist to it. For example, I love seeing the baggy oversized sweater or the belt bag hanging over the shoulder. Let your personality shine!!! 

Just like with this look today, I love finishing it off with a cool outerwear like this awesome suede jacket. I mean, look at the puffy sleeves...😍. It's by a brand called SCOOP which I very recently discovered. The amazing part about it is that it sells at Walmart now, since a while back this brand used to be kind of exclusive and very expensive. This is the new addition I got for the upcoming fall and really like the way it completely transforms my everyday leggings. I definitely also see it over a floral maxi dress for fall or a simple pair of denim jeans. What do you think? By the way, If you want to see my autumn clothing haul in a near future post, let me know! πŸ‚ 

Since I wanted to stick to the athleisure vibes, I added a pair of sneakers. I think the rest of the accents in this outfit were enough to upgrade it to the next level. We've got the cool accessories and the crispy white crop top. How would you style your leggings?

5 THINGS YOU MUST DO IN VEGAS THIS SUMMER!

Hello everyone,


The BEST thing about Vegas is that we have longer summers. Summers here extend into the end of September; sometimes even mid-October. I LOVE IT! Not only that, but also, there's so much to do here. Lots to see, experiment and drink! 🀣 

If you're a Las Vegas local you know exactly what I mean. If not, what are you still doing with your life? Get Vegasingggggg

This summer is one of the greatest ones I've had hanging out with friends, sharpening my salsa moves and getting back into live music after having everything shutdown because of Covid the previous year. It has been one of these summers I'll definitely remember for a long time. So, to keep the memories alive, I decided to share some of the things I did this summer. Also, these events are still happening, so you can totally take advantage of them and enjoy these last days of summer to the fullest. Sounds Good? 

Take note: A lot of these events appeared to me through ads on my phone. As you can see...I surrendered! Now, I'm an event ad goer who purchases an event after event to help extend my weekends. hahahaha!     




Cruising on a yacht during sunset has always been a big dream of mine. I saw this yacht tour happening at Lake Las Vegas and jumped at the opportunity right away. It was the perfect way to celebrate my sister's new job! I surprised her with tickets, and well, it was definitely a night to remember. 

We got to unwind to the light summer breeze, with the backdrop of acoustic music playing from the two-story yacht, cute mini bars on each level, and a crowd of people all dressed up in colorful summer attire. Most relaxing yet enchanting getaway because it felt just like a vacation. Pure magic! I totally recommend it if you're looking for something romantic or something new to do in Las Vegas.  

The cruise continues...well into the end of September. Here are the dates if you want to catch one before the end of summer. (Tickets cost $50 per person.) 

~ Friday, August 20
~ Friday, September 10
~ Friday, September 24



Necesito Cafecito...all the time! 😁 I can't pass a day without a nice iced cup of coffee. Thankfully, with the help of my friends, I found the nicest French bakery, which has endless delicious choices - lots of different croissants, macarons, fresh sandwiches and the most lovely European atmosphere. I love going at the Burgundy cafΓ© located at the Village Square plaza. Make a stop there, if you've never been! I mean it...it's a special place!

If you're looking to practice your French speaking skills or are homesick for your country, this is the place to brunch, talk and connect with others. And maybe dream a little more about Paris! πŸ˜‰ I've never been, but I can picture the Eiffel Tower every time I'm there. I mean, how can you not when you've got the purest taste of French cuisine in your mouth? hahaha        



Where there's sunshine, there is always time for a wild water park! πŸ€—

This is literally the best way to spend the weekend with family or friends. So fun - not just laying in the sun and getting a tan, but really getting into your childhood spirit with the most adventurous water rides. I LOVE IT!

We visited Wet "n" Wild first, and then two weeks later, my friends and I did Cowabunga Bay Water Park in Henderson. Both are way fun when you're with the right company. At Cowabunga we stayed all day long, caught the most amazing fireworks and faced pretty intense, big water rides. It was a heart-beating adventure for sure!!! I would recommend visiting both because they each have their own charm and help create such fun lasting summer memories.  

Have you done any awesome water parks recently?   
 

This is the place everyone keeps talking about whether you're a local or not. It looks unbelievable from what I've seen or heard friends say so far. I'm definitely going to try and visit soon. It's on my bucket list that's for sure!

Everyone has been recommending the Omega Mart Meow Wolf's experience. However, there's also the Van Gogh art exhibition, axes throwing and so much more. If you've already been to Area 15 let me know what part was your favorite and drop me some ideas in the comments section. 

I'll share some photos on my Instagram once I get mesmerized by this place. Follow me so you don't miss it!!!      


Imagine this...a candlelight instrumental concert of the best works of Vivaldi, Beethoven or Chopin. I believe this is going to be hands down the best experience ever. I will be going to the Beethoven one in a week from now and can't wait. Music like this touches the soul, and ohhh my, I'm so sure it's going to be INCREDIBLE!

I'll come back and add photos once this event is over. You can catch these classical music concerts well into the month of November. There is also one that will cover the all time favorite hits of the Beatles if you're a big fan. Truly, you can't go wrong with classical music!


These above and plenty more are the reasons why I love Vegas so much. There's something for everyone to enjoy! How has your summer been so far? Have you done anything fun...anything you would MOST definitely want to relive again!? πŸ₯³

Every Cedar Mountain Candle has a soothing scent that will make you feel like you're at a farmhouse overlooking endless picturesque mountain views. Not only that, but this brand is a local Vegas brand, which I'm always so happy to support and introduce because, for me, Las Vegas is home. 

All products are infused with essential oils, long lasting, vegan, and the vessels can be repurposed as gorgeous house decor piece after the candle has burned. I've got the vanilla cupcake candle burning right now!!! The sweetest scent fills the air. Just like with perfumes, sweet scents are my absolute favorites. 

One thing is for sure...autumn is nearing and Cedar Mountain Candle has a beautiful collection of scents for every season. You'll see everything from Blackberry Ginger for fall (which is not 10% Off the entire collection of Blackberry Ginger) to Lavender Spring Apricot for spring/summer and even Peppermint Bark for winter time.

Here's the scoop on how I became familiar with Cedar Mountain Candle: So the beginning of last month, my sister who loves photography, candles and basically anything handmade surprised me with the news that she's going on a job interview. I thought, "ohhhh wow, this is interesting!" She later explained to me about everything the new job entailed from having her hair smell of delicious candle scents all day to helping develop and grow the brand's marketing strategy and social media presence. It got me really excited because I know how much she loves this kind of stuff. This is her PASSION that now she gets to call it her job! Plus, you know, I don't mind receiving a candle or two from her now and then! 😁 I want my hair to smell like sweet candles too!!! hahaha

When you visit the site www.cedarmountaincandle.com  you'll see lots of amazing options not only for scents but also for vessels. My favorite are the pottery beaded candles because they're so farmhouse chic. You can continue using them as decor even after you have burned your candle to the very end. So Beautiful!

FAVORITE AMAZON SUMMER FINDS!

Hello everyone,


My most recent summer destination has been to...Amazon and back! 🀣 I'm actually not complaining because the scenery there is stunning, the colors are popping and the hottest season can be felt every step of the way. 

I really can't remember what I did with my life before Amazon?! All I know is that I started shopping there A LOT at the beginning of lockdown.. Now, whenever I need something for the home or I'm in the mood for a little seasonal shopping spree, I head straight to Amazon. It's just so convenient! And great prices!

Since my love for Amazon has become deeper, I've decided it's the perfect time to share with you my favorite pieces. Be warned: you'll see more colors than the rainbow...hahaha, lots of bold prints and the occasional solids, but still vibrant sets. 

What do you love to shop MOST from Amazon? What's the last thing you bought from there? Don't worry if you purchased more than a few things. You can still tell me. I can keep a secret! Your husband or boyfriend won't find-out from me! πŸ› 


This green dress is the definition of a must-have summer boho dress. One of the best purchases I made on Amazon. It looks amazing! 

I love dressing it up with white wedges or down with a pair of sneakers. I recently wore this dress to a special event on an yacht and three people commented on how much they liked it. Everybody was surprised to find out that my dress was from Amazon and not some overpriced boutique store.

Also, this dress fits all sizes. You wrap it around your waist as tight or as loose as you like. Very nice for day when you're not feeling your best. You can tailor it to your liking.

    

The dress saga must continue because I think Amazon has some of the prettiest floral print dresses and styles. Another maxi, but this one is more sensual and sexy because of the open back and the low front v-cut. Isn't it beautiful?

I imagine wearing this beautiful floral maxi on vacation at dinner and a walk on the beach. A gentle breeze would make it look even more stunning with the slit showing off the legs. This kind of dress deserves all the sunshine and palm trees it can get. It's so perfect for summer that I hope by wearing it, winter delays or something...hahaha!
     

Who doesn't like a cute boho ruffle dress?

It's so easy for me to fall in love with one because I love florals, ruffles, something chic and something sweet. This is one of the first Amazon dresses I purchased at the very beginning of the year. I've been wearing it for special summer nights with heels. Nights that involve dancing, music and a little fun!

I can't get over the fact that this is another Amazon find because it looks like a boutique dress. I really like the long sleeves and the deep v-neck line. It makes the dress very feminine and sexy!

    



Summer solids are wonderful, but it's fun to kick it up a notch with some kind of print like this two-piece polka dot crop top and long skirt duo. I love the tiny polka dots. This is the kind of print that I thought I would never wear because I wasn't  ever a big fan, but look at me now... hahaha! Crazy how taste and preferences change as we change. What's something you never liked wearing before and now you're kind of obsessing over? 

This is such an effortless and easy-going outfit, especially if you wear sneakers. Very chill, summery and a favorite go-to set. You can wear it to the beach, or brunch, even dinner. Choose your accessories wisely and you can pretty much wear this two-piece set anywhere. 
 



Two-piece sets have a way of making summer, and life in general, feel easier...😁 Not much thought goes into it. This is perfectly fine on days when you're in a rush to get ready. It's nice to have something to fall back on when life becomes hectic. 

This blue dreamy set is everything I like...very lightweight, playful sleeves, leg slits and the best part is both top and bottom can also be worn separately as well. I can see the crop top worn with a nice pair of high-waisted denim jeans and the pants combined with a simple cami top. What do you think? Go get yourself one! Link is right there! 
          



While summer is fun for its bright and flowy apparel, I'm also into finding cool workout-sets that can easily be combined with the pieces I already own. Amazon has a really great selection when it comes to comfortable, stretchy tops and shorts. I found these camo high-waisted shorts  and thought I've got to add them to my summer finds because they passed the squat-proof test! Plus, they fit and look great. 

Another favorite brand of mine, which sells on Amazon is RBX Active. I got a pair of black biker shorts, which I must say I wear most often. Check it out for sure!
       

What's the most recent Amazon find you've been loving? I think it's safe to say that shopping at Amazon saves me every time...they've got everything under the sun you would need. Truly the BEST!

Time to check-out what's new on Amazon! πŸ˜‰ Talk soon!!!

NAIL CARE ROUTINE FAVORITES!

Hello everyone,


Who else loves nailing the day, the week, the year with amazing nails? This is something that I enjoy spending my time doing. I have created my own nail care routine through the years, which works for me and makes me happy. Taking care of my nails weekly has easily turned into my "me time". It feels like my own therapy session where I completely focus on the details of what I want my nails to look like. My favorite part is deciding the nail polish and the design I want to create. There's almost always nail studs or sparkle involved and often I like painting my nails two different shades. It's so FUN!

Okay, as you can tell by now, I might be a little too obsessed with all things nails...you can call this a fetish of mine. hahaha 🀣 I'm sure I must not be the only one! We girls enjoy and take pride in having pretty nails!!! Whenever I have my nails done, I feel more like a lady. This simple act definitely makes me more confident. Like always, it's the little things we do for ourselves that count!πŸ˜‰

Also, I've never gotten my nails done by someone else because I feel like I already have all the tools I need. Plus, like I said, this is something I really LOVE doing! I have my own nail salon of soothing music with plenty of nail polish colors all at the comfort of my home.

As this hobby of mine continues to grow, I decided now it's a great time to share with you my favorite nail tips and tricks. The products that work for me and make my nails as happy as can be!!! 😁

TWEEZERMAN Mini Nail Kit

Before even thinking about painting my nails (most likely a vibrant color), I always get them clean and ready. This Tweezerman mini kit comes to the rescue every single time. What's great about it is that you can literally take it with you anywhere. Slip it into your purse or bring it along for your travels. Its got the very essentials...cuticle pusher + cleaner, a nail clipper and a nice file to shape the nails. 

One thing that I have found works for me is I shape and cut the death cuticle skin right after a hot shower. That's when the skin is softest and easier to work with. It takes only a few minutes! Then I take a nail buffer block and smoothen the nails, so it's easier to apply the nail polish. This of course, leads to my favorite part, which is coming up with the design and color shades I want to use. 

Just a week ago, I bought this metallic 12 pack set of nail polishes from Amazon. I was so excited to try it out that I quickly decided I had to paint my nails in two colors. I went for this unique metallic green and yellow. Colors which make me even more summer happy! πŸ’šπŸ’› What's great is I have been wearing this design for a few days now and it hasn't chipped the slightest. I can definitely make it through this weekend and then I'll pick new colors to sport. I don't think I can get tired of the way the metallic polishes shine. I know some people like nudes and others like fun, playful, vibrant shades like me. Which one are you?               






When it comes to sealing the nail polish, I'm very fond of Sally Hansen's products. I have used her top coat for years and still find that it works for me. It gives my nails a nice finishing glossy touch and dries them within seconds, so I can get on with my day. I hear the Deborah Lippmann top coat is also a winner. One I'm for sure looking forward to trying because it has gotten so many positive reviews. What top coat do you use?  

Since I like all things nail related and gadgets that help make my life easier, I'm looking to get a pedicure nail dryer soon. If you have any suggestions on a really great one, please let me know. Looks like I will definitely be turning my desk area into a mini nail salon when I'm inspired to do my nails, which is very often. 

Just as I like collecting different colored nail polishes, I'm a maniac for nail art (studs, stamp designs, anything unique). When the mood strikes, I enjoy creating something pretty and different. I can't say that I have always been happy with the outcome, but you know this can happen to the best of us...🀣

What does your nail care routine look like? Do you like to keep up with nail trends? If so, which one is your favorite?

SIMPLE WAYS TO BE A SUSTAINABLE FASHION CONSUMER!

Hello everyone,

Often when we hear the phrase "sustainable fashion" a lot comes to mind. I used to think it's something not so sustainable because it's hard to apply or find. However, now that I'm getting more familiar with the benefits of many leading brands providing clothing that offers quality material that helps reduce waste. It's safe to say this is a WIN-WIN situation for the consumer, the brand and our environment too. Happy faces all around!!!😊

This past year I have completely surrendered to buying new clothing items and it honestly has felt so good. Something I never thought I would say, but here we are!!! hahaha Also, when I open up my closet, I almost feel it finally breathing again.πŸ˜‚ 

I can't hide the fact...this sustainable lifestyle is rubbing off on me. Throughout this time, I have found a few simple ways that have helped me to be a more sustainable consumer, which I would like to share with you today. How do you feel about sustainable fashion? Is it something you have already experience with or are you just becoming aware of?   





 1. Quality over Quantity

Like anything in life quality is so much better. You know it feels different, extra special. Quality pieces feel as if they were made especially for you, fit you like a glove and honestly make your confidence sky-rocket. If you know exactly what I mean sayyyyy YESSSSS

It completely makes sense why ethical, quality brands have higher pricing. What you receive is an item that will last you more years than something that is fast fashion. I've got to admit, many times my eye is attracted to quality items. They have this glow to them that is hard to explain and even harder to resist! Name a quality purse you bought and you hated! Not Likely...hahaha     

2. Support Ethical Brands

Nowadays a lot more ethical brands exist. Not only do they exist, but they have made their mark in the fashion world. BIG APPLAUSE for that! πŸ‘ Supporting them can only help multiply all the good that they are doing. IT's a way to celebrate, acknowledge, and highlight their efforts. 

One of my favorite sustainable brands is H&M. I have a feeling it might not only be me who loves shopping there. The pieces there for sure are made to be styled with everything, completely trendy for years to come and of amazing quality. What else could you ask for? 

Next time you head shopping, think of the impact you want to make as a consumer. Even if you haven't heard of the brand name before, go for the sustainable option. Most likely you'll end up loving it!           

3. Donate/Sell Unwanted Clothing

Don't let the clothing you're trying to get rid off go to waste. You can easily donate it or earn a few bucks selling it. This year I donated two full garbage bags of clothing I no longer used. I was so surprised by how much clothing I had that just took so much space in my closet. Cleaning it all out felt somewhat therapeutic...clean wardrobe= clean mind! hahaha

Also, once you have donated or sold a few of your items try not to go on a shopping craze. Make smarter, more sustainable choices. Your wallet, your spirit and your closet will thank you.    

4. Air Dry Your Apparel

Extend the lifetime of your clothing by simply air drying it after a wash. This is something I have always done and it really works. No wonder I used to have clothing from high school that still looked like it was never worn. This easy act makes a great impact on our environment as well. Extra points if you air dry your clothing all year round not only in the summer when the fabrics can dry within an hour.

 

How are you planning to lead a more sustainable lifestyle? I know at first it can seem impossible, but it can easily become a great habit. One that will change the way you spend your money and help you appreciate the simplicity in being a sustainable consumer. Why not give it a shot?

5 INEXPENSIVE SUMMER BASICS YOU CAN BUY AND WEAR FOR YEARS!

Hello everyone,


Seasons come and go, but summer is one of the easiest seasons to style. Think about it...you don't have to layer piece after piece of clothing, so you don't really spend a lot on apparel. This is the season to save money because you can simply wear cute summer basics. Where as during the fall/winter you need hats, coats, boots, sweaters and jeans, which somehow have to go great together too. Yep, I prefer summer styling, and mostly the hot weather, because it gives me all the HAPPY feels!!!😁


Who here is fond of their basics like me? They're the key ingredient to any meal (outfit). Also, I see them as the reliable multi-tasker, which saves the day in many occasions even in the really unpredictable ones. My favorite top 3 basics include tees, dresses and skirts. What are yours? I can go into a lot more detail about the exact type of basics I love, but will of course share this as we go. Got to keep you in suspense like the real authors do! haha 🀣

How basic are you going to go this summer? I'm going fully in with inexpensive yet very cute items. Yep, give me all the CHEAP THRILLS! πŸ˜‰





SHORTS

Everyone's got them because shorts are just so easy to throw on. And guess what? They take so little space when packing for a vacation. Add a few different tank tops and you're completely summer ready. 

Also, there's more reasons to smile when you hear the word shorts. The BIGGEST one is that they're super inexpensive, which is why a lot of us own more than one pair. I love denim and biker shorts the most! They're the styles I'm most tempted to buy over and over again. You know how it is...one isn't enough. You've got to have the embroidery one, the distressed one or the very pretty one with a captivating studs design.
 
      

SKIRTS

When you want to feel more feminine you can skip the beat to a flirty skirt. Another great wardrobe summer staple, which you can wear for years to come. I still have skirts from five years ago that are in style and you know will always make an outfit feel more complete. For example, the leather skirt or the pencil skirt are just the BOMB.

I have a gingham skirt that is one of my favorites and to this day, this pattern is chic, and may I add, looks extra sweet.πŸ˜‰ What are your favorite type of skirts? Flowy, maxi, body hugging, or mini?
 

SANDALS

Summer and sandals go hand in hand together. Plus, sandals are easy to find, cheap to buy and so fun to collect...hahaha! Every sandal under the sky is trendy. You can wear them seasons to come as long as you can keep them in great shape like me. You can say that shoes are my soft spot! I love them dearly and want them constantly. 

I'm always up for a nice heeled sandal that gives me legs for days.πŸ˜‚ The flat ones I would mostly wear to the beach and back or when my feet are very much hurting in blisters from dancing. What's your top go-to style of sandal?
  
    

DRESSES

And just like that I'm sure when you read the title of this post, the first thing that came to mind is dresses. They're the definition of summer with the endless vibrant colors, cuts and the memories each dress can remind you of over and over again. I have so many memories based on dresses I have worn every summer. It's insane in the most beautiful way!

Name a dress that you don't love? I don't think there is one for me. I find all of them unique in their own way. The kind of basic you can't seem to forget! That's why every summer we hope and wait for the season to arrive quickly, so we can kick it off with our favorite dresses.
   

TOPS

To top it all off we've got to highlight the importance of a cute summer top. They're the perfect partner in crime for our shorts and skirts. It's one BIG summer affair that's for sure! 

Right now, I'm loving the tops with the voluminous sleeves, which make you feel extra or part of a Hollywood movie. Being this dressed-up always feels nice and special even if all you're doing is going out to brunch. A girl can dream right?!

What's your go-to summer basic? 

I hope you have an amazing summer!!!🍹 See you again next week with a new post!
