Summer Black









Even during the summer, I just can’t stay away from black.  The other day my husband pointed out that I had worn all black for four days in a row—- totally guilty!  This little number is from ASOS and it’s on sale. While I love body con dresses, but sometimes it feels great not wearing something contrived, plus don’t have to worry about how much I eat. While this is a simple dress, the embroidery in the back gives it that special touch.  My wedges are Schutz– found them on Gilt.  My hair is up in milkmaid braids– best way to beat the heat.  Besitos.

Black Dress with Cut Out Detail ASOS//Animal Print Wedges Gilt (they run one size big!)//Hoops Old//Sunnies Ray-Ban Aviators

Hasta durante el verano, yo no puedo dejar de ponerme el color negro. El otro día mi esposo señaló que había llevado todo negro durante cuatro días seguidos —- totalmente culpable! Esta vestidito es de ASOS y está a la venta.  Si bien este es un vestido simple, el bordado en la espalda le da un toque especial. Mis zapatos son Schutz – los encontré a buen precio en GILT. Besitos. XO

And it’s another happy Monday in my life and here on the blog!  I’m coming off an amazing weekend with the hubs and my family.  We rented a summer home upstate and I never thought I would be so enamored by the country side.  It’s so peaceful, with breathtaking views and a pool we could not stay away from.  As I pinned away on Sunday night, I couldn’t stop looking at the images of America’s LARGEST closet, owned by Houston entrepreneur and fund raiser Theresa Roemer —  this closet is so big she holds fund raising events and parties in it.  It is bursting with designer labels and she calls it her “she cave”.  Oh a girl can dream! 

Get inspired yourself by pinning these images and following me on Pinterest here. 

Have a blessed and amazing week. Besitos. XO

Happy mid-week!  My summer vacation photos are finally here!  If you’ve been following on Instagram, you know that I spent the week of 4th of July in Cabo, pre-celebrating our wedding anniversary.  Peter and I got married at the One & Only Palmilla hotel in Cabo and make it a point to go back every year for a week of margaritas, guacamole and hanging with friends.  At this point the staff is like family and we’ve made friends over the years that we run into during this time of year– it’s oh, so swell!

Some of these pictures will look familiar (they were all taken with my iPhone) and I already posted some on Instagram.  Hope you enjoy them!  Xo


Embroidered Summer Dress












Hey lovelies! Hope you’re week got off to a great start.  I’m just loving this weather and have been dress shopping non stop because everything is on sale!  I can’t tell you how comfortable this dress is, you have to try it yourself.  The gauzy breezy fabric is perfect for this weather; here I paired it with my fave Target wedges (which are also on sale! I just got the black ones), but you can also wear with flats.  The dress is from Mango, but I bought it from ASOS– click on the link below.  My sunnies are Italia Independent and I can’t stop wearing them. #inlove

No les puedo decir lo cómodo que es este vestido, aparte de lindo y femenino. La tela de gasa es perfecta para este tiempo; aquí me lo he puesto con mis plataformas de Target que acabo de comprar en negras por que están a la venta! El vestido es de Mango, pero pero lo compré en ASOS.  Mis lentes son Italia Independent y no puedo dejar de usarlos.  #enamorada

Premios Juventud Beauty Look


Alejandra Espinoza - 1

Alejandra Espinoza - 2

Happy Friday fabu folks!  I caught Premios Juventud last night and couldn’t get over how gorgeous Alejandra Espinoza looked—- she went for a sensual look with this very sexy dress.  She definitely took the “plunge” with that neckline and showed off those fit legs with the side slits.  When you’re making such a statement with your outfit, it’s always best if your makeup is understated.  I love the softness of her beauty look, which is perfect for summer.  I got the scoop from her makeup artist Franz Munoz about the inspiration behind this look and the products he used to create it.  It was all about achieving a natural, yet polished looks so he opted from warm colors, including plum liner, coral cheeks for a flushed look and soft rosy lips.  Here’s the step by step:

STEP 1: Create a perfect canvas using L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher ($24.99) as a skin primer to give a nice dewy, radiant complexion

STEP 2: Gently dab the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Golden Beige($10.95) to contour. Blend in with the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Caramel Beige ($10.95)  to create a sun-kissed caramel glow. No powder needed to keep the look fresh and dewy.

STEP 3: For the eyes, apply the darkest shade from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Absolute Taupe ($9.99) over your entire eyelid and the medium-colored one in the crease. Use the lightest shade from L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Perpetual Nude ($9.99) along your brow bone. *Secret tip: Franz added a bit of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter in Goldmine ($12) to make the makeup more llamativo

STEP 4: To highlight the eyes, first add a winged line above the upper lash line with a fun summer green shade from L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in True Teal ($8.99).  Beneath the lower lash line use the L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Pure Purple ($8.99) as it’s a perfect color for daytime that plays well with tan to darker skin tones.

STEP 5: Apply two coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Black ($7.99) to the upper lashes

STEP 4: On the apple of your cheeks, lightly dab the blush from Urban Decay’sNAKED FLUSHED in Native ($30) for a natural flush and highlight the cheek bones and nose with its built-in highlighter.

STEP 5: Create a polished glossy lip using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipcolour in Rose Melody ($9.99), one of my favorite colors from the line!

Keeping Summer Cool




It’s Friday folks, so this post is filled with much excitement! Can you feel it already?  I thought it would be a great day to tell you about how I kick off my mornings — so I jump out of bed at 6:30 – yawn! and take my behind straight to the gym.  I’m not necessarily a morning person, but I’m all about getting it out of the way and I feel amazing afterwards.  There are a few essential items that are a MUST in my gym bag– these breathable pants and matching bra from Adidas, these adorable New Balance sneakers from the Heidi Klum line and my Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee. because I need to wake up!  The way I see it– it keeps me hydrated and takes me from feeling comatose to being completely energized for my workout.  Plus, it’s an awesome on the go option so I’ve been stocking up on all of the different flavors every time I go to the supermarket.  I can’t decide if my favorite is the regular flavor or the vanilla, both are delicious!  Anyhow, I hope you’re keeping staying hydrated drinking iced coffee my lovelies!


Feliz viernes! Hoy les dire como normalmente empiezo mi día y mi rutina de las mañanas.  Me levanto a las 6:30 y me voy directo al gimnasio.  Se me hace super difícil despertar en la mañana, pero siempre me siento increíble después que termino de hacer ejercicios. Hay algunos elementos esenciales para mi bolsa del gimnasio – estos pantalones transpirables y sujetador de Adidas, estos tennis de la linea de Heidi Klum para New Balance y mi Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee, porque necesito ayuda para despertar! La manera en que yo lo veo – me mantiene hidratada y me lleva de sentirse en estado de coma a estar completamente despierta.  No puedo decidir si mi favorito es el sabor regular o el de vainilla, ambos son deliciosos! De todos modos, espero que se estén manteniendo hidratados este verano bebiendo café helado mis bellezas!

Bottled Starbucks Iced Coffee beverages are the perfect blend of premium Starbucks coffee and 2 percent milk. Available in four delicious offerings: Coffee + Milk, Low Calorie Coffee + Milk, Vanilla, and Caramel, Starbucks Iced Coffee ready-to-drink beverages are the perfect on-the-go refreshment to get you through the daily commute, big projects such as spring cleaning, or an exciting road trip with friends. Look for it at major grocery and convenience stores, available nationwide.
