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!











HOLIDAY OUTFITS AND HOLIDAY SHOPPING with Nordstrom

11/28/2019

Growing up in Venezuela, we didn’t really celebrate thanksgiving. When I moved to the U.S, it was instantly a Holiday that I liked celebrating because it reminds us to stay thankful, to revisit the year, and remember the good while spending it with family and loved ones.

I married a Puertorican, and they do celebrate Thanksgiving…their own way. The dishes are a bit different, but oh-so yummy. So I’ve learned that I have to be prepared for the most delicious eating. That’s why this dress from Topshop I got at Nordstrom was perfect for the occasion; it is roomy but it is still very cute; family appropriate but young and fun; and easy to layer if you live in colder weather.

Walking by Nordstrom, I had to get this green velvet handbag (similar here) with the chunky chain- it brings the greens in the floral dress and it is also perfect for the Holidays.

Last touches? The HONEY earrings and the fisherman hat.   I think they really bring the whole look together


You all know that I love matching with my little boy, even if we are in the same color palette. He was also very comfortable in his corduroy pants and grey sweater by Tucker + Tate, also from Nordstrom.

Also, did you already get your Holiday shopping done? I still have to buy everyone’s Christmas gifts. Nordstrom has their own curated gift guide section with categories like “Gifts Under $100” or “Gifts For Him”. Here are a few of my ideas for what to get:


FOR YOUR LITTLE ONES


FOR YOUR BEAUTY OBSESSED FRIEND-COUSIN



FOR A GUY IN YOUR LIFE


Nordstrom is having their Cyber Sale happening now! Make sure to check it out here to get up to 50% off.

Curls ANYTIME ANYWHERE...with Conair

11/13/2019


I have curly hair naturally but I started straightening it when I was in college. I recently have started to try to get back my curls. However, after so many years of straightening it, it has been a slow process and I still have to style the top of my hair. 






I got to try the new Conair UNBOUND Cordless Auto-Curler- when I read the word CORDLESS, I was sold.  UNBOUND is the first high performance cordless, rechargeable auto curler. Curls, anytime anywhere? I’m there.  PLUS with my baby following me around trying to grab cords, I also feel it’s safer using the UNBOUND.














How does it work? 

Your hair is automatically drawn into the ceramic easy-glide coated curl chamber where it is held and heated from all directions. The ceramic surface helps smooth down flyaways and frizzies for added shine. Then you release for your perfect curl, and repeat that process all around your hair.

You can control the temperature: for tighter curls, select a higher temperature.

You also can control the direction of the curl: I personally like curls that flow away from your face (Right curl direction for your left side, and Left curl direction for your right side). 

Finally, you can control the time that it curls for. Select a longer time for a tighter curl, and a shorter time for a looser curl.

Then recharge if needed so it’s ready to curl the next time you need it. It can be used cord-free for up to an hour!





How I use it? 

My vanity area does not have a plug around, so it’s been amazing to finally get ready there instead of the bathroom. Like I mentioned, I curl medium-sized strands of hair from the top of my head(I let the rest air dry). 

As you can see the curls I get with the curler are beautiful. I let them cool down (I might finish my makeup while they cool); and then I brush them up with my fingers so they are not as perfectly done.

And that’s it! I have a feeling this will be a lifesaver more than once because I can do my hair literally ANYWHERE!



Would you try it? Where would you take your cordless curler!!

SNAKE PRINT boots for FALL 2019

10/23/2019
This post is sponsored by Zappos. All opinions are my own.


In Miami, we wish for Fall temperatures basically all year. We aren't so lucky though, so we have to fake it a little bit (and fortunately, everyone fakes it at home too with a 60 degree A/C!).

So here are two looks with these amazing Steve Madden boots I got at Zappos. The one with the black dress and the denim jacket is more of a transitional look, perfect for Miami. But I know I also have readers that are experiencing temperatures drop right now.

Snake print makes big statement but it is also super versatile. I love how it looks with denim and leather. You can dress them up or down. Every time I wear these boots I get tons of compliments- I mean they are gorgeous!

I've loved Steve Madden shoes since I moved to the U.S; and now I can browse Zappos and find such a great range of Steve Madden styles. Plus I can shop in the comfort of my home, with fast and free shipping, and a 365 return policy. 



___________________

En Miami, soñamos que lleguen las temperaturas otoñales todo el año. No tenemos mucha suerte en ese departamento, así que nos toca conformarnos con bajar el aire condicionado!!

Hoy les dejo dos looks con estas botazas espectaculares de Steve Madden que conseguí en Zappos. El look del vestido negro con la chaqueta de jean es más para Miami pero también quería darle una idea a las que me siguen en ciudades donde ya está empezando el frío.

El estampado de culebra es un clásico junto al estampado de leopardo- tanto así que pueden considerarse neutrales y van con todo. Me gusta mucho como se ve con texturas como la mezclilla y el cuero. También es impresionante como me hacen cumplidos en la calle cuando las uso.

Steve Madden ha sido de mis tiendas favoritas de zapatos desde que me mudé a Estados Unidos- y ahora me encanta que puedo conseguir los últimos modelos en Zappos- que se ha convertido en mi página favorita especialmente para los zapatos porque el envío en gratis, rápido, y se pueden devolver sin ningún problema.














HALLOWEEN IDEAS: Family costume - NEMO, Darla and Dentist

10/22/2019


This costume was so fun, and people really loved it last year on my IG. I guess NEMO is such a cute movie that it really resonates with so many people.

My son had to be Nemo, of course. I went for Darla and my husband was the dentist. 

OUTFIT/COSTUME DETAILS:
My skirt was from Target, and it also works for Cher in Clueless.
The purple sweater is an XL in kid's size. If you can't find a piece, check the junior department!!
I did the braces by twisting aluminum fold, it took me less than 5 minutes.
I could have gotten a redhead wig but the two little ponytails with my brown hair work too.
Here's the link to Nico's Nemo costume, and to my husband's scrubs.

HOPE YOU LIKED IT!

Aquí viene otra idea de disfraces: está vez en familia.

¡¡¡NEMO, DARLA, y el dentista!!

Fue super divertido de hacer, aparte que Nemo es una película tan linda que a todo el mundo le pareció una ternura. Les dejo todos los detalles:

Mi falda es de Target,  no es de disfraz, todavía tengo en mente disfrazarme de Cher la de Clueless co está falda.
Mi suéter es del departamento de niños, no encontraba un suéter morado y lo encontré en Hanes en la talla más grande.
Los brackets los hice doblando papel aluminio, mega sencillo de hacer.
Darla tiene el cabello rojo pero preferí simplemente hacerme dos cositas.

Aquí les dejo el enlace del disfraz de Nico y el de mi esposo.

¡ESPERO QUE LES HAYA GUSTADO!








HALLOWEEN IDEAS with BABY: Cruella de Vil + Puppy

10/14/2019


I've always loved Halloween. My birthday is a few days before Halloween and it feels like the perfect excuse to make my friends dress up at my parties.

However, since becoming a mom (and since I enjoy dressing up so much), I started thinking about all the amazing costumes I wanted to do with my little one. Since I have this blog, I have the perfect excuse to dress up to give you all tons of ideas.

This costume is from last year but I never shared them here.  Looking for inspiration, I found tons of mommy + baby costumes with Disney Princesses and their pet (aka Little Mermaid and flounder,  Jasmine + the tiger, etc). However, I love the dark side of Halloween- so I thought it would be way more fun to dress up as a villain!! And I WAS RIGHT! Cruella was one of my favorites to do last year; the perfect mix of evil and fashion!

I'm also trying to make sure my costumes are made with pieces I already own, or will rewear again. I'm trying to stay away from store costume, at least for me. 

ALL YOU NEED
Fashion-wise:
- A little black dress. You can play around with the style you feel the most glamorous in.
- A faux-fur coat (so easy to get at thrift stores).
- Red heels (I ended up with black heels, loved them too).
- Red gloves

Beauty-wise:
- Red lipstick
- Vibrant green eyeshadow and strong eyebrows.
- At this point I had long hair so I did a faux-bob hairstyle and I used white hair spray to get that classic Cruella look.



It was so much fun!!

Siempre pero SIEMPRE me ha gustado Halloween. Cumplo años el 25 de octubre, entonces mi celebración de cumpleaños era la excusa perfecta para hacer que mis amigos se disfrazarán.

Pero admito que desde que nació Nico (estas fotos son del año pasado),  hay algo en mí que quiere hacer todos los disfraces posibles porque va a haber un momento donde el no va a querer disfrazarse conmigo.

Cuando empecé a buscar inspiración en Pinterest, encontré muchos disfraces de princesas de Disney (como Ariel y Flounder o Blancanieves y los enanitos). Pero yo como la rebelde que soy de corazón, dije: ¿Y LAS VILLANAS?

También intento que mis disfraces se puedan hacer con piezas que ya tengo en el closet o que pueda encontrar fácil y re-usar- van a ver que esto va a ser común en todos los disfraces que he hecho.  Por esta razón, CRUELA ES PERFECTA- aparte es fashion y malévola.



PARA LA ROPA:
- Un vestido negro
- Un abrigo de piel (preferiblemente sintética o vintage).
- Tacones (los de la caricatura son rojos, pero yo opté por unos negros).
-  Guantes rojos.
- Aretes llamativos.


PARA EL LOOK DE BELLEZA:
En ese momento yo tenía el cabello largo, entonces hice un bob falso. Lo dividí por un lado y apliqué un spray de cabello color blanco.
En cuanto al maquillaje: unos labiales rojos y una sombra verde escarchada.

¡Este es uno de mis favoritos de siempre!!
