Non-wash HAIR ROUTINE…GOING WATERLESS

3/23/2020
This post is sponsored by Waterl<ss. All opinions are my own.



For the past 6 months, I’ve been trying to embrace my naturally curly hair. The more I learn about my curl pattern and curly hair, the more I understand the important of not washing my hair as often. When you wash your hair too often, you might remove natural oils that benefit it.

I personally like to wash it every 5-7 days- instead of following a strict schedule, I wash it when I feel I really need it. I do it for the curl benefits, because it saves water (more on that later), and because with a little toddler, sometimes I don’t have much time to get ready.

Every time I share how often I wash my hair on social media, I get questions like “but you work out every day, how do you keep it fresh and pretty?”.

So let me tell you about the Waterl<ss products I’m using and absolutely loving!

But first, let me tell you a bit about the brand.

Waterl<ss started to improve the non-wash day experience for a diverse set of people and hair types. In the testing phase of the launch, Cape Town, South Africa announced it was 3 months away from running out of water for their city of 4 million people. The products proved to give clean, conditioned, and great smelling hair without using a single drop of water.


My Waterl<ss routine:
I’ve tried MANY dry shampoos and I was very impressed with the no-residue formula of the Waterl<ss No Residue Dry Shampoo. It contains no parabens and no sulfates. You just shake the can well, spray on your roots, and you can brush out or run your fingers through it. I try to userun my fingers, so I don’t mess with my curl pattern - but if I’m using a curling iron to reshape the curls, I brush them out a bit.

I was super excited to try the Waterl<ss Instant Moisture Dry Conditioner as it tames flyaways, frizz, and dry ends (3 things that are definitely related to curly girl problems!). To use it: shake the can, spray your hair from mid to the ends, and run your fingers/brush it out. My hair feels moisturized without the need of water, and it doesn’t weigh it down. Total new favorite!

Tell me about your non-wash routine! How often do you wash your hair? Would you try these out! You can grab these products online at Walmart, here.

SHOPPING THE SALES WISELY with Nordstrom

1/23/2020

This post is sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle

Fashion-wise, my biggest resolution for 2020 is to shop smart! My #1 rule used to be “Don’t buy it unless you can picture 3 ways wearing that item”. Well, from now on, I’ve increased the 3 ways to 5 ways…YES FIVE!

So I believe in investing in high-quality pieces that are trendy but you can update season after season. Reason why, Nordstrom is my go-to for shopping! The quality is amazing, there is great variety of items and brands….and when there are sales (like RIGHT NOW), I have to stop-by!


Let me show you what I got:
The first piece was this leather jacket that was 40% off. I’ve been looking for a faux-leather jacket like this one for YEARS. This one from Topshop fit is incredible, it feels very luxe, and I know I’m going to wear it non-stop! Better news: it also comes in PETITE!



Then I saw this easy-to-wear NEW YORK graphic tee (similar HERE), under $15!! I love simple oversized tee and I wear them with anything and everything. 

This time I wanted to pair it with the sequins skirt from Halogen that I got last month- which BTW, if you didn’t get it in December, it is now 40% off (such an amazing deal and it comes in black, gold and blue!). TIP: size down since it runs a tiny bit big!



Then going through a different rack, I saw this brick orange jumpsuit from Topshop and I loved it because it is different from anything I own. It is supposed to be cropped, but hey petite over here! It just sold out but here is a cute short skirt version, I personally LOVE the pink corduroy one.

 I played with the fall tones and I added a Burgundy hat and a green velvet bag that is under $50! 

I also got a few pieces for my little boy and a new leggings + sports bra set, but more on that later!

Which look was your favorite?
Head out to Nordstrom to see more of the amazing pieces on sale!










Holiday Traditions at Home

12/25/2019
This post is sponsored by LG. All opinions are experiences are my own.

I’ve been living in Miami for 13 years already (which is CRAZY, time does fly!).  For 8 years, I would travel back to Venezuela to spend the Holidays with my family- and my husband would go to Puerto Rico where he is from.

We wouldn’t even decorate our house because we were always traveling.  We got married in 2014 but it wasn’t until Nico was born last year that we started thinking about creating our OWN little traditions (because yes, we are both Latinos but each country has completely different traditions).

Last year Nico was 6.5 months and now he is a year and a half. He is still too little to understand what’s happening but it means so much to us to see him enjoy such a wonderful time.

We started this year by putting the decorations together. I was nervous about getting a tree and that he would try to steal the ornaments.  But I took a chance with a little tree. Yes, it did happen…more than once! BUT he eventually understood that they are not toys.

A few nights before Christmas, after putting our little one to sleep, we sat down in our living room, put a Holiday movie in the LG OLED TV, and we started to wrap all the presents. We ended up watching a few movies but it was such a nice way to spend time together, talk, drink wine, and get the presents READY! I have a feeling that this will become a yearly tradition.

When I was little I remember always partying with my big family and opening the presents at midnight. However, he is still too little. So the adults exchange the gifts at midnight and then in the morning, we let him open his gifts!!

 To make it feel extra Holiday-ish (since we live in Miami and it hasn’t been under 80 degrees since January), we put a fireplace in the LG OLED B9 while opening gifts and then proceeded to watch a Holiday movie with him while all in our fun elf Pjs!! Hopefully he’ll dress up with us a while !

Let me tell you a bit about the LG OLED TV B9:

My first impression was WOW, it is so sleek! It’s design adds the final sophisticated touch to any room. Then as soon as we turned it on, I was impressed with the quality. It produces one billion rich colors, including perfect blacks and infinite contrast. For my experts out there: it has the power of 8.3 million individually lit pixels. And as a smart TV, it was very easy to download all the apps and streaming services!












HOLIDAY SPARKLE with Nordstrom

12/19/2019

This post is sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle

I love the idea of adding a bit of Holiday sparkle throughout the season- and beyond, because who said sequins are only for the Holidays?

This Holiday season I wanted to add a sequin midi skirt to my wardrobe. Yes, it is a statement piece BUT it is also extremely versatile - and I’m ALL about versatility. I have a feeling that this skirt will come handy year after year. This one is from Halogen, from Nordstrom- it also comes in blue, gold, and black sequins. I actually was super indecisive - especially because the blue one is GORGEOUS.

Since I like mixing dressier items with casual items. I decided to pair the sequin skirt with a gray crop-top sweater from Topshop. It really balances the sparkle of the skirt, it makes the look more comfortable, AND it is still super cute and dressy for any HOLIDAY PARTY.

Then walking around Nordstrom, I saw this gorgeous pink feathered bag and I knew it had to be mine. I’ve worn it twice already and I’ve gotten so many compliments on it. It’s the perfect size to fit exactly what you need, and it works from day to night. I wore it with jeans and it was definitely the perfect touch to a casual look too.

The final stop was the GIFT section at the store. Nordstrom has great holiday gift guides for inspiration on what to get anyone in your life. Here are some last-minute gift ideas:




I was looking for a few things for my cousins and sisters in law. And again, I got distracted with these earrings and headband- they are such perfect gifts I ended up getting them from me lol- don’t blame me! The headband is BaubleBar I love it in black but with my dark hair, the pink one popped better! And these star earrings are EVERYTHING AND MORE!

Endless Wonder

Thank you Disney+ and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.

When I was little, I watched “The Little Mermaid” probably 500 times. My older brother still tells me that he doesn’t understand how the VHS would still play it. It’s absolutely incredible how much things have changed since the 90s and it’s mind-blowing to think that Nico is (and will be able) to have access to basically any movie, any time, any place!

I was so excited to check out Disney+, and it truly is more than a streaming service! There are hundreds of movies and series to stream: some bring me back to my childhood, and some are becoming great traditions with my own little family!

Since Disney+ is home to Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and more, I keep adding and adding to my watchlist! I’m really excited to watch the live-action Lady and the Tramp, re-watch the Toy Story saga (absolute favorite), and Lizzie McGuire (as I’m very excited to see the new Lizzie McGuire series! Who else is?).

I like that there is content that Nico loves (his latest obsession is anything with Pluto in it, it makes him laugh like crazy), content that we love as a family (I could watch Coco every week), and also content for a couple’s night in (we have watched a few National Geographic documentaries, and they are amazing).

Have you subscribed to Disney+ yet?

And if you have, tell me what you are currently watching!?

Rain or Shine.. Dansko

11/29/2019
Sponsored by Zappos.


I think over the years I've been blogging, it has been pretty obvious that I love a good pair of black booties. And if you are new here (first of all WELCOME!),  if you go back a few posts and you will see me wearing ankle boots so often!!

So I'm always in the look for a perfect pair that I know I will continue wearing throughout the years. Then I noticed that one of the main reasons I was messing up my boots was because they were not meant for the constant Miami rain. Yes, Florida is the sunshine state but it will surprise many people how often it rains here.

So the search for the perfect waterproof boot started. I didn't want them to look like rain boots either. And of course, I wanted them to be comfortable.

I headed to Zappos.com since it is one of my favorite sites because of its range of styles, outstanding service, and fast and free shipping. After a quick search, these Dansko boots, Becki, were like the perfect fit. Dansko is known for its high quality, undeniable comfort, and premium craftsmanship. I ordered them one night, and I got them the afternoon of the next day- Zappos fast shipping continues to surprise me!

They are perfectly versatile boots, I know that I can wear them with everything while also being prepared to the unpredictable Miami weather- and if you don't live in South Florida, they definitely work for the Fall/Winter and the Spring showers. They also come in a taupe color that is super cute!
