4 NEW BRANDS I'M CURRENTLY LOVING!

Hello everyone,


I've got to admit something! Sometimes it's super hard for me to try different brands. When I already know what I love, it takes a bit of courage for me to go for something unknown. This can go two ways...I either feel disappointed or it becomes a daily favorite. It's all about taking that leap of chance, I guess! Otherwise, the known can get boring and uninspiring really quick. 

To avoid a rut, this year I'm exploring and giving a chance to new brands. I decided to create this post to push me to open-up and try products I've never tried before. Brands whose names are absolutely NEW to me. This way I hopefully get the chance to introduce you to them and tell you all about them from my personal experience. It's a WIN-WIN situation, don't you think? 

It's funny because I can't remember the last time I tried a new brand until this post idea popped into my head. For clothing, I always seem to go for Forever 21 and for skincare, I'm a Drunk Elephant kind of girl. πŸ˜‚ But look at me now...we're grooving, moving and trying new things. I encourage you to do the same! 

I will be sure to continue with this throughout the year. It might even turn into a series! Any thoughts? Because, let's be honest, I want to feel excited about the brands I'm wearing and putting on my skin. However, I don't want to be stuck with the same ones ten years from now. This would feel like I've never lived!!! 😱

Let's live it up!!! 



It's no secret that I love being active and taking care of my body. I've had crazy amounts of energy ever since I was a child. So, I did lots of sports. Also, I'm always up for a nice jog outside or lifting some weights. It keeps me grounded and happy. 

So, you can imagine, a big portion of my closet consists of workout attire. I always want to find the most comfortable, yet stylish pieces. Thankfully, I came across Dona Jo , a brand I hadn't heard of before. I've got the cutest biker shorts and the awesome detailed black sports bra. Both pieces are super stretchy and hug the body perfectly, so you can give it your all during your workout. At the end of the day, that's ultimately what fitness clothing is for. Plus, notice the cellphone pocket space on the shorts...genius!   

A brand like this makes me appreciate the fact that I gave it a chance because otherwise I wouldn't have known how amazing it is. My fear of trying new things would have stopped me from becoming one of my favorites!

What's your favorite activewear brand that you think I should know about?


I can't tell you how much I love my music...so so MUCH! I listen to it 24/7 (at least that's what my sister tells me.) hahaha!  She says it's a little too much, but I say, you can never have too much music in your life! 

This is a completely new brand for me. I was dreaming of owning a set of wireless earpods because I often go running. Now, my runs feel a lot more free and enjoyable since there isn't a wire tugging at me anymore. This is something that I'm still smiling about. Start smiling at the little things, and you know, eventually, you'll get to smile at much bigger things!πŸ˜‰

These Senso earpods easily connect with the bluetooth on your phone and the sound quality is something I like to call "FUEGO"!πŸ”₯ 

Let me know, what's your current go-to feel good song?



Another brand that is UP there with my deep love for Drunk Elephant is this Korean skincare brand called I Dew Care. It's still new to me because I have discovered it recently, which is why I knew I had to include it in this post. 

Two of the first products that I tried from them back in November were their Yoga Kitten clay mask and the purifying power-green serum. Ever since then, I knew I wanted to test more of their products because Korean beauty truly gives their customers the most natural ingredients. So satisfying knowing your skin gets the BEST kind of treatment everyday!

Here, I've got the the Kitten My Balance On trio, which comes in a set of an oil cleanser, clay mask and a serum. Perfect for all my travel lovers...these mini sizes are great to add to your carry-on. Honestly, I want everything this brand ever comes out with. Where are all my skincare junkies at? 

Also, to this collection I've added a 24 hour moisturizing cream and a hemp seed oil cleanser. I can't wait to add them to my day/night skincare routine!!!
     



And just like that, we've come to the last brand I'm currently loving. This is one of the most elegant, classy and signature watches I own. There is power in simplicity and this watch proves it!

How beautiful is this design? I love that it can be added to your wrist, no matter what you're wearing from sporty to dressy to in-between. And it's made unisex...both women and men can add it as a staple to any everyday activities.

It's really cute to stack with bracelets because, why not? If you love a great watch, this one is definitely a great one to add to your collection.

What about you? What new brand have you tried recently and really loved? Tell me in the comments below! 

See you in March!🌹 I'm so excited spring is coming!!!

WAYS TO WEAR THE PANTONE COLORS OF 2021!

Hello everyone,


This year we're more than LUCKY because the pantone color of 2021 is not one, but actually two. How charming is that? We have the happiest, always in a great mood...yellow shade and the color that is always a wonderful outfit builder...the soothing gray. Together they make for one remarkable sight!

Of course, this doesn't mean that we can't wear any other colors in 2021. It's just fun to take the current pantone colors and create as many looks as possible. A moodboard kind of inspiration if you want to add these hues to your wardrobe. Are you a fan of this year's pantone shades? πŸ’›

With spring fast approaching, I feel like yellow would be ideal. So perfect for a stroll in the city or a lovely picnic. I imagine a cute yellow dress, which is totally my cup of coffee. Plus, I love gray because, as I mentioned earlier, it's a wonderful color to build upon. You can add whites, blacks or any other pop of color to it. It really can't get any better than this! 

So are you ready to see my yellow, gray and all around multi-thrilling style looks? 








Which of these outfits is your favorite?

If you don't want to wear yellow or gray from head to toe, there is always something else you can do. Add cute accessories in these two shades like bold yellow fringe earrings or a fun pair of gray boots. You'll still be trending and it will be done in your own personal taste of style.πŸ˜‰

Also, I wouldn't mind going full monochromatic in this year's pantone colors. A look like this screams power, elegance and classy, which is the kind of feeling any woman would love. Did you just visualize it? I totally did see myself in every shade of yellow from the top piece to the bottom shoes and even the nails.😁

And of course, you can mix and match the two colors. They would 100% compliment each other nicely with the yellow popping out and the gray being a nice background hue. Just like a captivating painting! One that holds your interest for a longer time...unexpectantly!

Are you surprised by the chosen 2021 pantone colors? Will you be wearing them?

WHAT TO WEAR ON VALENTINE'S DAY: LAST MINUTE DATE OUTFIT IDEAS!

Hello everyone,


Anyone doing anything special on Valentine's Day?
πŸ’• 

You might be thinking "I don't have any plans", but trust me, some things in life come at us unexpectedly, at the very last-minute. If that happens to you this February 14, (your crush asks you out on a date) I want you to be able to act quickly. This is why, I decided to share with you my outfit ideas for a few date occasions. What to wear if he invites you to a fancy dinner, a movie or you're just going to enjoy a fun Galentine's Day with your besties?

I know with Covid we might not have such a big range of options for date night, but this is a wonderful time to get creative and surprise your better half. In my city a lot of restaurants and activities are open, you just have to make sure to call beforehand for a reservation. Plus, love will never die even in a pandemic like this one!!!

I would love to know...what's the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you on this day? Was it something kind he said or something fun he planned or he made the kind of gesture you would never forget? Share your LOVE in the comments! We can use it to lift each other up and remind one another that love still exists!

FANCY DINNER DATE


Make-Up: @makeupbyhayliej

There might not be any parties happening this Valentine's Day, but you can always get fancy if your man takes you to a lovely 5 star restaurant. I would suggest going all out in a red dress! I know, I totally would because it really is the perfect occasion to do so. When again are you going to wear a vibrant, sensual red dress? 

Plus, when it comes to any more formal events, it's better to be overdressed than feel underdressed. This way, you'll feel more put together, confident and your personality will surely shine right thru. I would even paint my nails red, add a red lipstick, put on my highest heels...basically GLAM-UP! πŸ’„

For a night like this, my favorite dresses would have to be lace. I mean, it can't get more romantic than this. Also, add to it a high leg slit, playful sleeves and you'll sure be able to make an impression. Yep, I'm describing exactly this dress. It's my absolute FAVORITE! πŸ’ƒ OLEEEEEΓ‰! I can even go dancing in it after dinner! That's if my man has got some rhythm! 🀣
 

CASUAL DATE



There is always the option of a casual date. One that involves going to the movies or maybe going bowling. Super fun and something that you'll enjoy just as much as long as you love the person you're with. 

For this kind of date, it's perfectly fine to go with denim jeans. Pick the pair you feel most sexy in and from there start building your outfit. You can choose your look upon the Valentine's Day theme colors: red, pink or purple. Add touches of them in your accessories or if you're feeling bold wear them. 

I love the combination of red and pink together. They would look even more cute on Valentine's Day. For example, wear a red sweater and add a pink handbag the way I did or do it the other way around. These colors compliment each other so well and would make for one beautiful date look.
 

GALENTINE'S DAY



 
Many times Galentine's day comes with a theme. You and your besties decide what to wear and what to do. For instance, you might get together at your friend's house and have the idea of everyone wearing heart shaped pajamas or you might decide to dress-up and go out for drinks. 

This year my friends and I are going to dress-up and go out. We decided to strongly highlight the theme of fur coats, so each one of us will be wearing one. Also, it's going to be super fun because we're going to indulge in Valentine's Day themed cupcakes (homemade).πŸ˜‹ I can't wait!!! It's going to be a full day of girl adventures!!! 

Have you done Galentine's day before? It's a great way to celebrate the people in your life... your best friends who you can trust no matter what. The ones that know and accept all of you!

For a day spend with your best gals...I think it would also be cute to wear a pleated maxi skirt, preferably one in a romantic shade and a nice blouse or crop top. And why not complete the outfit with white sneakers? 

Really anything will work for a date night with your besties! Decide your plans and dress accordingly.
 

Happy Valentine's Day!πŸ’– Hope you have an amazing time, no matter your relationship statue!

SCENT OF A WOMAN: VALENTINE'S DAY EDITION!

Hello everyone,


Who's feeling the love today and everyday? πŸ’— 

The month of Valentine's day is here, so are the chocolate shaped hearts, the lace red dresses, the bouquets of dozen roses, the romantic songs and the MOST important...The "Scent of a Woman"! Why? Because without us, women, nothing of this would even exist or have any meaning. We're the inspiration behind a love song, you're the reason your man smiles everyday, the essence of everything beautiful in life. We are LOVE!

To celebrate all women I decided to share my favorite fragrances with you today. The scent of a woman can sweep you away! Any guys reading this...take notes. These perfumes would be a lovely gift for your sunshine! These six choices are very suited for Valentine's Day because the aromas are feminine, sensual with a hint of adventurous. You will most likely identify your woman in one of these perfume smells. For example, I always connect with strong floral smells. They completely describe my personality! To be honest, every perfume I ever owned has been a sweet, floral scent...of roses, lavender, poppies, daisies!πŸŒΊπŸŒ·πŸŒΌπŸ’(any flower you can think of, I would love it in a perfume bottle.) 
    
What's your favorite scent?






This fragrance has got all the PASSION for Valentine's Day. It's love in the form of a bottle. How gorgeous is this bottle? You can totally add it as decor after you have used it all up. The way I have! I still have it and now sits next to my red jewelry pieces and red nail polishes. I like to matchy-matchy things!
πŸ˜‚ 

"Si Passione" is the perfect balance between sophisticated and sexy. Fruity and fresh, yet alluring with notches of a woody vanilla scent. It's my absolute favorite, which is why it's my first choice.  


Next up, we have the seductive "Black Opium" fragrance, which is truly something every woman will love. I mean, who can resist a scent made of black coffee, vanilla and mixed in with white flowers? Just thinking about it I'm getting goosebumps!!! (Yep, I'm actually not joking this time!).

This scent is warm and spicy like your Valentine! πŸ˜ Ohh yeah...she'll like that! (I'm still talking about the perfume!) hahaha     


"Perfect" because your woman is perfect just the way she is! Did you know that Marc Jacobs has perfect tattooed on his wrist? It's about embracing oneself and being proud of who you are, not what someone else wants you to be.

This floral scent is playful, calming and feels like velvet on your skin. When you casually walk by someone, they will definitely feel the powerful scent of a woman. So Perfect!   


Just by looking at this gold bottle, you can tell this perfume is made to exude the pursuit of sun and luxury. It's beyond beautiful, warm and sweet! Your Valentine will more than likely appreciate it!

One thing a scent like this can do is take you away. Completely mesmerized by the smell, you forget about "normal life".  


Like the previous, fragrances this one as well is a best seller. If your Valentine doesn't receive it, it's like you have missed out on Valentine's Day! 

It's the ultimate garden party...the kind of floral fantasy every woman loves. I love it!!!

Ayyy my heart is "flowerbombing"!  


"Life is beautiful" when your Valentine surprises you with Lancome. Makes you smile every time just like the way the bottle represents the shape of a smile.
😊

Keep smiling because the scent of this perfume is ohhh la la la!!!   

You'll be crying happy tears because this is the kind of gift that will make you weak at the knees. I know, I love receiving perfumes as gifts especially when it's from someone SPECIAL!πŸ˜‰ 

What are your plans for Valentine's Day this year? If you're single or in a relationship, keep on loving!!!πŸ’“

Talk soon! Bye mis amores! πŸ’‹
