The Best for our Pups: a fresh take on pet food

9/14/2018


Sponsored by Freshpet. All opinions are my own.



Chiki has been in our lives for over 10 years. He has been with me through college, grad-school, marriage...and now he is the best with our baby. Just like he has been the best pup ever; I, as a loving pet parent, want the best for him! 

Reason why I was so excited for him to try (and LOVE) Freshpet’s natural and healthy dog food.  I love how they are committed to providing the best for pets; Freshpet uses fresh, whole ingredients, and gently cooked without preservatives or additives. The food is kept refrigerated because THAT’s where meats belong!

I knew that Chiki was going to love it…what I didn’t know was HOW MUCH! Taking these pics was such a fun challenge because he kept doing all the tricks he knows (trick = delicious reward!). Then as soon as I filled his plate with the “Fresh From The Kitchen”, he devoured it so fast that we had to refill it to get make sure we got the right shot. I mean, I’m sure he didn’t complain.

We are excited to have incorporated Freshpet into his diet; it gives me peace of mind that Chiki doesn’t have by-products, corn, wheat nor any artificial colors or flavors. You can actually see the real fruits and veggies..and smell the fresh chicken!

BEAUTY: My Go-To for Gel-Like Manis

9/13/2018

I have to admit it, you probably always see me with bare-nails. I don't have the patience to do my nails every week. I wish I did, but just thinking about going to the salon stresses me more than making me relax.

Now as a new mommy,  I don't have the time either. I try to go to the salon for shaping and for my cuticles, but I prefer to them at home. My go-to for a gel-like mani is Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel. It's one of my favorites because it's more chip-resistant than traditional nail polish without the need of UV light. You only need two coats of the color and one coat of the Top Coat. Here I'm wearing the color "Orchid-Ing Aside". It's still neutral enough to wear with different outfits but a little bit girly.

To match my nails, I wore a purple eyeliner (from Urban Decay) and these fun Kendra Scott Earrings. The dress is from Who What Wear at Target, and it's SO comfy. I want it in every color

What's your go-to color for nail polish?

Probablemente si se fijan, pueden darse cuenta que casi nunca llevo pintura de uñas. No tengo la paciencia (ni ahora el tiempo) de ir a la peluquería todas las semanas. Sé que hay mujeres que les encanta y las desesperas, pero para mi ir al salón es más una obligación que un momento de relajación.

Por eso prefiero hacerme las manos en casa; este Miracle Gel de Sally Hansen es mi linea favorita porque parecen de gel sin usar luz UV y duran más que una pintura de uñas regular. El tono que llevo en estas fotos se llama "Orchid-Ing Aside".

Para estas fotos quise combinar mis uñas con un delineador morado en los ojos de Urban Decay y estos aretes de Kendra Scott. El vestido me pareció el contraste perfecto y no tienen idea lo cómodo que es. Por mí, lo tuviese en todos los colores.





HIS & HER KLOZET: with Little Nico

9/10/2018


I still have a lot of content to share, but so little time to post it. I really love being a mom but I wish I had an extra hour or two to be more active on the blog.  I know I'll slowly get back on track but please be patient with me.

We took these photos when Nico was only two weeks old. It was my first outing to an event- that ended up being a fail because they over invited people and it was just a mess.  Gabe and my mom  (with Nico) dropped me off at the event - and my cousin took the pictures. It's crazy to look back at these photos and see him so tiny! Time is really flying.

The dress was perfect for those first weeks of postpartum , and the little heel perfect for the discomforts of it.

Hope you like these little family photos! XOXO

Tengo tanto contenido por compartirles que hemos tomado poco a poco, pero realmente no tengo mucho tiempo para publicar. Amo ser mamá pero mentiría si no digo que me gustaría tener una hojita extra para trabajar con más calma. Poco a poco me iré acostumbrando a la rutina, pero tengan paciencia porfa!!

Estas fotos las tomamos cuando Nico solo tenía dos semanas. Fue mi primera salida sola a un evento; mi mamá y Gabe me acompañaron con Nico hasta la puerta. Pero el evento terminó siendo un desastre porque invitaron a demasiadas personas y se les fue de las manos. Ese día mi prima nos tomo las fotitos y es increíble ver lo chiquitico que estaba. El tiempo realmente vuela.

Sobre mi look: este vestido fue perfecto para esas primeras semanas postparto y el tacón bajito ayudaba con la incomodidad de esos días.

Espero que les gusten estas fotitos familiares.

¡Besos!






LIFESTYLE: How to stay active as a working new-mom

9/07/2018

This post was sponsored by Athleta. All opinions are my own. I'm excited to challenge myself to #WorkInYourWorkout by infusing a workout into my workday and wearing Athleta's new commute line.



I've been getting a lot of questions on how to stay active as a new mom who is also self-employed. The answer is easy (but not necessarily easy to apply in real life): squeeze in your workouts whenever you can!

I'm currently trying to exercise 5 days of the week with 2 cardio session and 3 sessions of 30min interval training (it's supposed to be high intensity, but I'm taking it slowly since....hey! It still feels like it was yesterday that I had a baby).

 Since I work from home, I try to do the interval training in the living room with Nico by my side (sometimes when is taking his morning nap and other times he is just entertained by my squats and push-ups).  Also, if he is by the activity gym  I do planks right by him or maybe I'll do some squats with a 14-pound baby as extra weight.

Being a freelancer also includes meeting with potential clients or colleagues for coffee or lunch.  So instead of driving like everyone in Miami, I've been trying to schedule my meetings around town in order to #WorkInMyWorkout by biking to them!! It ends up being a win-win situation: I workout, I work, and I save money and time by not having to spend 15 minutes finding an expensive parking spot.

However, heading to a meeting in workout gear might look unprofessional. Reason why I'm loving how Athleta is using multi-functional performance fabrics that work from an active commute to a workday.

Here I'm wearing the Marinwood Striped Shirt; it's a classic white button-down shirt but it's lightweight and airy, perfect for biking in Miami and still looking put-together. I paired the shirt with the Hybrid Cargo Tight; it sits at the natural waist and it's very flattering. It also has 6 pockets to keep all essentials handy.  I love when brands offer petite (and tall) sizing; the fit is so much better and you save an errand to the tailor!
Since at the end, it was a fashion meeting, I added statement pieces like the hat and the clear aviators.






Join me and #WorkInYourWorkOut!!-
- You can do like me and bike to work or to a meeting.
- Maybe do wall sit-ups or planks during a work call.
- You can do a quick Yoga session in the conference room during lunch break.

BEAUTY: How I'm trying to get my natural curls back

9/06/2018



My hair was naturally curly; so much straightening over the years has soften the wave. I did a keratin treatment almost a decade ago. I really miss my natural texture; especially because I think I didn't know how to style it back them.

I've been trying to wear my hair as natural as possible from time to time to get my curl back. Also this little routine saves me a lot of time. Hey, sleepy mamas raise your hands! Keep reading to see how I did the curls in the main picture!

    Mi cabello es naturalmente rizado. Pero después de tantos años planchándolo, la onda se ha suavizado mucho. Pero últimamente quiero recuperar mi rizo, y eso significa darle un descanso a la plancha lo más que pueda . En el colegio siempre llevaba mis rizos al natural; pero no solo los productos han mejorado enormemente desde el 2006 si no también creo que yo no sabía como peinarlo.


    Esta rutina que les comparto abajo para lograr los rizos/ondas de arriba también me ayudan mucho cuando estoy apura. Como una mami nueva, no tengo demasiado tiempo para plancharme o rizarme el cabello y esta rutina me toma menos tiempo.
