RARE BEAUTY REVIEW!

Image
 Hello everyone, Today we're going to focus a bit more on beauty because it's an important part of our daily lives. Since Covid happened and even years before that, I've always loved applying more minimal make-up. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with wanting to play with make-up and do cool, vibrant looks, but I prefer enhancing my features just enough to feel confident in my own skin. On top of that, I also like my choice of products to be natural, to feel like my second skin...light and hydrating. That's why I was super excited when I found-out Selena Gomez's new brand will be just that. Rare Beauty was made to break the unrealistic standards of perfection and focus on owning your true uniqueness. Have you tried it yet? The brand launched earlier this month on September 3. I knew I wanted to give it a try and create this review as soon as possible. If you're still debating whether or not you should purchase some of these products, I hope this po…

5 FALL PIECES TO HELP ELEVATE YOUR STYLE!

Image
 Hello everyone,
Wanna know something fun? Fall is coming! hahaha I'm pretty sure you already knew that, but I had to start this post with one of my classic jokes. Sorry, I couldn't help it! I promise, I'll make it up to you with this post and I might even drop a few more laughs because laughter kills all bacteria. Oops, I did it again!😂Really, I'm just trying to get pumped up for autumn. While I love layering and truly getting creative with my style during this season, I'm a summer soul or I like to believe so. That's why don't mind me if I drop a tear or two on your keyboard while you're reading this.😥Ok...after this, I hope your computer is still working! Mine is still managing even though there is this loud sound, which is roaring or am I going a bit crazy?😆 What were we here for? Ohh, yeah, that's right...FALL FASHION!🍂Everything revolving around this season is slowly but surely creeping in. While you get your pumpkin spice latte, light your…

LAKE TAHOE TRAVEL GUIDE!

Image
Hello everyone,

Here I am recharged and full of sunshine!🌞
My family and I went on a four day vacation to Lake Tahoe. The adventures were endless, from hiking the most beautiful vistas, paddle boarding for the first time to falling asleep on the beach numerous times, and getting sunburned. hahaha! Ohhh what a JOY
Everyday felt a little less ordinary and a lot more special. It was wonderful finding the beauty in every moment, being offline and soaking-up everything around me. I'm still in that state of mind! The beauty there is one of a kind...crystal clear water, most breathable temperatures, scenery that automatically makes you feel grateful for being alive in the NOW and a place where time feels as if it has stopped in your favor. If you have been to Lake Tahoe before, I'm sure you would 100% agree with me!!!👌
Today, I'm super EXCITED to share with you my impressions and experience from where to stay to what beaches to enjoy! A bundle full of new discoveries. We were abl…

ROAD TRIP SERIES: LITTLE JAMAICA, ARIZONA!

Image
 Hello everyone, Are you ready to get FRESH?💧With the temperatures getting well above hundred degrees, it was about time we took a more refreshing road trip. A scenic view with natural waters to keep us cool! This was a great change from the several dry desert canyon parks we visited previously because we finally got to feel as if we're on the beach by the water...except this time a mesmerizing waterfall! EPIC right? I know!!!Welcome to Little Jamaica! A hidden oasis (maybe, not so hidden because it gets super crowded over the weekend), along the Virgin River found right under the freeway bridge. A man made tiny pool where you can enjoy some family time, soak up in the water all day long and just have a blast. Perfect spot to visit and make the most of this summer!🤗From Las Vegas, it's about an hour and fifty minutes drive, just after you cross the Arizona border, in a town called Littlefield. It's only 10 minutes away from Mesquite. The driving is the easy part! The more…

HOW TO STYLE BIKER SHORTS!

Image
Hello everyone, 

Who else has ditched their leggings/jeans for something more stretchy and comfy like biker shorts? I HAVE! I started wearing them last year when they became trendy, and guess what? They're still here to stay even in 2020! They won't be going anywhere, anytime soon! That's fantastic news to me, you, and the whole world because these shorts are a total CATCH!
One thing's for sure, with quarantine this year and the hot summer, my cycling shorts have been a true savior. I keep rotating them, one pair after the other. Now, I have a pretty good idea of all the ways I like to style them most. This is why I knew, I had to write this post!
Plus, you know that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is starting in a few hours...begins August 19 (opens to general public), so now is the perfect time to stock-up on a few pairs for a lot less than usual. It's a WIN, WIN situation! 
And read further to find-out my favorite ways to style my cycling shorts! They're a great …

TIE DYE SUMMER!

Image
 Hello everyone, How's everything in August so far? I hope you're doing more than well and enjoying the last month of summer. As we get closer to autumn, I'm hoping to squeeze in a few more summery, bright and happy style posts your way. What would you like to see? I'm thinking to continue the road trip series. As for the rest, I'm open to any of your suggestions. Let me know! Today, in a way, I went back to my high school days, with tie-dye. That's when I first made my very own tie-dye shirt. Now, here we are again, this well known trend, which made a HUGE comeback this summer 2020 season. Even my eyebrows are turning tie-dye - that's how excited I am!😂 hahaha Best thing about this trend is that you can DIY it yourself if you're feeling adventurous. You don't have to spend extra money for something you can make yourself and you get to choose your colors, which is the best part. How Fun! One activity you can do at home with your bestie! And we all h…

ROAD TRIP SERIES: JEAN DRY LAKE BED!

Image
Hello everyone,

Here we go again! Back in the car, doing a bit more off-road driving (while crossing my fingers we don't get stuck somewhere for the second time), visiting the well known Jean Dry Lake Bed in Sloan, Nevada. This time, this trip felt more like a backyard outing because this place is super close, only 45 minutes away. It didn't require any long preparation like the previous road trips. 
As the name hints, this is an open dry lake. It's very popular when it comes to photo-shoots, videos or films being shot there. For example, "The Hangover" contains some scenes from this dry, yet magical spot. 
It was my first time visiting it! I love the simplicity, yet the raw beauty of it. Like the ocean, the eyes see beyond the horizon! Only difference is that the ground here has endless dry spots, which feel like they would crack any minute with every step. How cool is that? 
Also, on the way to Jean Dry Lake Bed you can make a stop at the Seven Magic Mountains beca…
