MY BABY SHOWER..GOLD JUNGLE THEMED BABY SHOWER

4/13/2018

Hi loves! Get ready for a crazy long post, but I wanted to share as much as possible about my baby shower. It was intimate: with my close friends from Miami, my parents, and Gabe's family. Everyone played such an important role during this shower, I felt so loved and I know this baby boy will be so spoiled!

Putting your Best Face Forward.. with Create & Cultivate

4/12/2018




If you have been following me for a while you know tight/stretchy dresses are not my thing.  I love oversized things, a good A line, and flowy dresses. However, nothing fits in my closet anymore ...and I kind of wish I had a few more cotton dresses like  this one.

This pregnant combo is very common in the Kardashian family; they love bodycon dresses with duster coats and heels- and well, like I said before, they are out of my comfort zone. But again, all the fun stuff happens when you try stuff out of your comfort zone. 

I originally wore it for a maternity shoot with my friend Karla Garcia- I added a cozy long cardigan and it was all shot at home. After she left, I had little time to change to go to the Create & Cultivate event I was speaking at. So I told myself: WHY NOT, let's just add this duster I have and give it a go. And I really pushed myself because I wore something I was not used to in front of at least a hundred people. It was fun!




BODY IMAGE during PREGNANCY

4/10/2018

I've had this post in my drafts for a while. There is so much I want to say but at the same time I don't know how to put the words together in a way that not only makes sense for moms/moms to be, but also for my non-mommies.

There is so much pressure for pregnant women to stay fit and tiny during pregnancy, to not have stretch marks... and don't even get me started on the pressure to bounce "back" and look better than ever AFTER the baby. But I'll probably talk more about this when I have my boy.


When you are pregnant you will hear a lot of:
"OMG you are HUGEEE, you are probably about to pop"
"OMG such a tiny belly, are you sure you are eating right?"
"OMG it has to be a boy because of XXX "
"My belly/my friend's belly was so much bigger/smaller"


As someone who has struggled with weight and diets since I was a little girl, I'm not going to lie: all of these comments offended me somehow. You can blame  the hormones all you want, but it's also RESPECT.
1. Nobody wants to be told they look huge- even with triplets.
2. I really dislike being compared to anyone or analyzed. It's my body- all bodies are different- all pregnancies are different. 


When I miscarried last year, I blamed myself a lot. I felt some sort of anger towards my body "for not being capable". I was able to forgive myself, to not think that it was my fault in any way.  But at the same time, this fear has stayed with me throughout my pregnancy.  Nutritionists might say I could have been more active or eat a bit better, but I'm just listening to my body and feeling blessed to have this little miracle inside me that I will never take for granted.

What I want to get to is that all we want to hear is that we are looking beautiful or that we are glowing (even we have been puking the whole 9 months and look terrible). 

And you, fellow mom-to-be: don't be so harsh on yourself. 
It's okay if your belly is bigger than others. 
It's okay if you are 7 months pregnant and still have your abs.
It's okay if you gained a little more weight that you should have.
It's okay if you got stretch marks.
It's okay if you had that extra cookie.
It's okay...

 You are creating life and there isn't anything more beautiful than that.




US FOUR...and some retro vibes!

Another year...another birthday together!


Gabe turned 31 the day of these photos.  I always say it but I can't believe how fast time is going by. When we met at 17-18, we really had no idea of everything that was about to come.

Last year, during his birthday, he had a broken leg and I was still bleeding from the miscarriage (TMI, I know- but you can imagine how hard it was).

On the contrary, this year, we were full of hope. We celebrated with friends and his family. It's definitely amazing how things can change in a year, how we have grown so much, but at the same time we are the same.

Ok I'm getting a little bit deep right here. But I'll continue to daydream about his 32th birthday and how it will also include a tiny little him.

Gabo cumplió 31 años el día que tomamos estas fotos.  Todavía siento que todos estos cumpleaños que hemos pasado juntos han pasado en un abrir y cerrar de ojos.

El año pasado celebramos mientras el tenía una pierna rota y yo todavía sangraba de la pérdida del bebé (probablemente es más información de lo que quieran saber, pero con eso les digo todo de lo difícil que fue ese cumpleaños).

Este año, al contrario, fue uno lleno de esperanza. Celebramos igual con familia y amigos pero el saber que el año que viene va a haber un chiquitín con nosotros nos tiene el corazón inmenso. Es impresionante como tanto puede cambiar en un año, pero al mismo tiempo sentir que nada ha cambiado.



HI-FI Event with Urban Decay...at Basement Miami

4/03/2018


Last week, I went to an event with Urban Decay and some of the coolest Latina blogger babes in Miami.  The event was held at Basement (at the Miami Edition). Like it's name, this place is in the basement of the hotel and it has the coolest bowling alley and ice skating rink.

I love these types of events; when they are not heavily branded but an experience. I played one round of bowling- well, I sucked at it because of the belly. And yes, I was okay. I grabbed a light ball and I wasn't throwing hard (I promise). Remember that pregnancy isn't an illness but you should always listen to your body.

As far as my outfit. I got this shirtdress at Asos maternity during Black Friday (wow yes, so long ago) - everything was half off and I took advantage of the sale to get cute maternity stuff. This dress is one of those pieces I know I will wear after the baby is here- but just in case, I liked below to some cute options that are not maternity. I think what really elevated the look was the accessories (the white ankle boots are so fun, and the cabby hat).

Hope you like the pics! We had so much fun in this different backdrop! XOXO

La semana pasada fui a un evento con la marca de maquillaje Urban Decay y un grupo increíble de bloggers latinas de Miami. El evento fue en un lugar llamado Basement - y como su nombre lo dice, es en el sótano de un hotel. Es todo de neón y tiene para jugar bowling y patinar sobre hielo.

Este tipo de eventos son increíbles porque aparte de  conocer al producto,  compartes con amigas y se convierte en una experiencia. 

La pregunta más frecuente es si jugué con la barriga, ¡¡y SI!! Solo que tuve MUCHO cuidado, recuerden que el embarazo no es una enfermedad. La verdad es que jugué muy mal porque tampoco quería hacerme daño- básicamente la pelota iba a 0 por hora.

Sobre mi outfit: les cuento que compré este vestido durante las ventas de Black Friday en noviembre (wow como ha volado el tiempo) aprovechando que todo estaba 50% de descuento en ASOS. Me gusta porque es una pieza que voy a seguir usando después del bebé aunque sea de maternidad. El toque cool lo dieron las botitas blancas y el sombrero.

Espero que les gusten las fotos, nos divertimos mucho tomándolas en este sitio. ¡BESOS! ¡FELIZ ABRIL!



SPEAK LOVE...Maternity Boyfriend Jeans and Graphic Tee

ALWAYS SPEAK LOVE!


I'm amused by the amount of hate in social media. Every time I find a cute video, I try not to scroll to the comment section because most of the times, no matter what, people find something to criticize.

I'm not saying not to SPEAK UP,  but it's always better to look at things positively. See the beauty, and SPEAK LOVE!


¡ De verdad que me quedo impresionada cada vez que encuentro un video lindo, divertido, o interesante, porque todos la sección de comentarios está siempre llena de tanto odio- sin importar lo que sea, algo critican.

No digo que tengamos miedo a hablar. No digo que "calladita te ves más bonita", porque NO es así. ¡Pero realmente el mundo cambia cuando empiezas a ver la belleza en todo y a hablar con AMOR!
