From Loungewear to Every-day

This partnership with Zella, Nordstrom’s in-house lifestyle brand, has been so fun- especially because I get to show you the cutest and comfiest loungewear- especially if you are like me and you are lucky enough to work from home in these times.


But as we are learning to live with this new normal, I wanted to show you some ways you can “spice up” your loungewear and make it the cutest outfit for a date outdoors, run some errands…just add your favorite mask and you are ready to go.



 The Crewneck Sweatshirt







I’m wearing this crewneck sweatshirt all the time- which comes in a few colors! I mostly wear it at home with its matching shorts (and if you love joggers, the matching joggers are available too).


To wear it out and about, just add your favorite jeans! I wanted to feel a little dressier so I added the booties, but you can definitely wear your favorite sneakers and it’s such a perfect look for errands.




 THE LOUNGE LEGGINGS






These leggings are super soft but they hug your curves. You can wear them to work out (here I paired them with the Rhythm Sports Bra- best for low impact like yoga), to lounge around (they are also featured in the lounge look with the hoodie!), and they look amazing with some boots, a cute tee  (here I am wearing the the washed tie Dye Studio T shirt ) and a leather jacket- perfect for those days you want to be comfortable but still look cute!





THE MEN'S HOODIE 







My husband wore this hoodie in the previous post we did with Zella BUT I have a weakness for men’s hoodies. The fit is a little longer and roomier.  As mentioned, I first wore it with the lounge leggings . Then for the dressier look, I just added some biker shorts and over the knee boots! I think this might be my favorite look!


I prefer to shop online, BUT sometimes I can’t wait! When I shop at Nordstrom , I click the option for “free pickup” at my closest local store!

Feed Your Hair, Feed Your Body

It is always so exciting to partner with brands you absolutely use and love. I first learned about Hair Food in May 2020 and the products worked perfectly for my curly journey, where it is recommended to use products are free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, and dyes!




So I want to tell you more about my current routine:


 - I wash my hair once a week because that’s what works for me! I’m using the Coconut Milk & Chai Spice Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. The scent is perfect for the winter: sweet, but not overwhelmingly sweet. My husband loves it too!


- When my hair is still damp, I apply the Mango & Aloe Vera Leave-in Curl Defining Smoothie, it helps tame frizz and give defined curls.


- Then I applied a bit of gel for curls to hold them a bit more..


- I’m really happy with my curls; but some days, I need to use a curling around to curl a few strands around my face. 


- So I’m using the Coconut & Argan Oil Heat Protectant Blend, it protects your hair from heat damage up to 450 degrees and gives it a healthy shine!


-To open the curls and break the curl hold, I use the Avocado & Argan Sulfate Free Smoothing Hair Oil to prevent frizz and give it a shine kick!



You can shop all these products here. 






Hair Food’s mission is to feed your hair like you feed your body. 

So inspired by their kitchen-crafted recipes full of superfoods, let’s do a smoothie with delicious and nutritious ingredients that nourish your body (and hair!!)



You need:

  • Frozen mangos
  • Fresh Aloe Vera Juice (it has so much benefits like improving digestion and boosting immunity). Here’s a quick tutorial on how to safely prepare the Aloe Vera Juice.
  • Coconut chunks
  • Avocado.
  • Optional: ginger 
Blend until smooth and enjoy! You can also add coconut flakes when you are ready to serve!

These tropical ingredients also remind me of my childhood in Venezuela and spending time with my family. I love my hair is as simple as what I put in my smoothies










Couple Matching in Zella

You have to check out my previous post wearing Zella. It is Nordstrom’s in-house lifestyle brand. In the first one, I got a few performance leggings that I completely loved. Then I got some fun tie-dye that is perfect to be around the house.


As soon as my husband saw me trying on the things I got from Zella- he asked “Do they have men’s clothes too?” And he got a bit excited when I told him YESS!!


So this month, I went on a mission to get us comfy matching outfits!



HE’S WEARING





He is wearing the Pyrite Slim Fit Pocket Jogger- they are super versatile since he can wear them to work out in cooler days or with fun shirts for an off-duty look.


He paired it with the Tie Dye Men’s Hoodie- so soft, made from a cotton-blend fleece, perfect for the Miami Winter days where you only need a cozy hoodie.



I’M WEARING





You can never go wrong with black leggings- the Soft Pocket Lounge Leggings are my favorite to work out and lounge around.


To match with Gabe I went for the Jamie Ink Print Crewneck Sweater, it comes in several colors…it was hard to pick my favorite but I went for the blue one. It is adorable!



Just a little reminder that Nordstrom  has curbside pickup. I like ordering online and then I pick it up without even having to leave my car or open my door.

Last-Minute Holiday Gifts for…

12/18/2020

Last time I had so much fun doing “Holiday Gifts under $25 for the Whole Family”. This time I wanted to include my readers and I ask you all on my Instagram Stories to tell me who you are having a time finding gifts for.


Everything you see on this little list is from Nordstrom Rack, it includes lots designer brands and great quality items at great prices.



Let’s get this started:


 FOR THE DAD WHO HAS EVERYTHING


My dad and my father-in-law are always the hardest to gift something to…because it feels like they have it all and they won’t ever admit when they need something new.


So I’m gonna say that you should go for things that even though they DO have, they should replace or would rotate- ex: sneakers or workout clothes,  THE shirt they always wear in another color, “cooler” masks.




BESTIES WORKING FROM HOME

This year changed our lives in so many ways- many switched from office meeting to Zoom calls.  I’m thinking comfy pj sets, slippers, cardigans that dress up but they are still super cozy, headbands and hair accessories (again, to feel dressy at Zoom calls)




FOR THE ESSENTIAL WORKER

If you have anyone who is an essential worker right now, I think all the gifts should be about pampering themselves. I’m thinking face masks, candles, eye masks, skin care…anything that makes them relaxed and recharge them to continue doing the amazing work they are doing!



FOR THE NEW HOMEOWNERS

If anyone in your family or circle just moved in into a new place or bought their first house, it can be super special to gift them something useful for their new home. Here are some ideas. I’m loving this Mr and Mrs Wine Set




FOR THE QUARANTINE BABY

Any baby born in the last few months probably didn’t have a baby shower or a proper “welcome to the world” meet, so let’s pamper these quarantine babies with some cute items! Mama advice: if you are getting them Pjs, make sure they have zippers- it makes changing them 100x easier!


Must-Have Boots for a Winter Getaway

12/14/2020

I absolutely love wearing boots…but let’s say that living in Miami, we (Nico and I) didn’t have the right boots for our winter getaway to North Carolina.

 

The weather during mid-December in North Carolina can be a little unpredictable- we weren’t sure if we were going to get snow BUT we knew there were a few waterfalls around the area and we were excited to go see them.

 

So I headed to DSW, our family go-to for all things shoes and THE boot destination with all the styles you might need for any occasion. I had two pairs in mind: rain boots and snow boots.

 

RAIN BOOTS









In our bucket-list, we had many waterfalls to visit around the area so I knew it was a must for Nico and me to get rain boots. And I honestly have been eyeing these Hunter boots for a while, especially for those crazy storms in Miami (we have them more than frequently).

 

But I am IN LOVE with Nico’s boots, they are super easy to put on and off (and as he is getting more independent, he loves that). He was very excited when he saw the space print and EVEN more excited when he realized they light up. They also comes in a super cute dinosaur print.

 

 

SNOW BOOTS

We really wanted to see snow BUT we weren’t as lucky. However, another thing in our bucket list was to go tubbing in a close-by area, so we got to wear our snow boots even if just for a little bit.

 

Mine are SOREL and I know they are a classic and will last me many seasons to come.

Nico’s are Columbia and he has been wearing them a lot, especially during the colder days of our getaway.

 

I ordered our boots online and picked the curbside option, but the store layouts have also been redesigned to support social distancing. You can also sign up to be a DSW VIP and get free shipping on any order! You can also get $10 OFF Express Shipping using the code ISHIPIT (from December 15th to December 18th) to get any last-minute Holiday shopping on time!

Holiday Gifts Under $25 for the Whole Family

11/19/2020

 *Sponsored by ShopStyle and Nordstrom Rack. This post includes affiliate links. All opinions are my own.*






As you can tell, I’m really excited about the Holidays…and I absolutely love getting gifts for my loved ones just as much as I love dressing up for the occasion.


Because of the current worldwide climate, I am sure we all want to save as much as we can. Reason why everything from this list is from Nordstrom Rack, and you will see lots designer brands under $25!!


Let’s do this!




1. Secret Santa/White Elephant

Every year, I do a white elephant with my friends (the only rule is that the gifts must be around $20) and we always have so much fun. 


This year, you can use a Secret Santa generator online, and set up gift exchange details so you can still have fun while socially distancing! These are all unisex, useful gifts, that everyone will love!




2. For little ones 

For this little list, I tried adding things that boys and girls will absolutely love! Let’s say Nico, my boy, caught a glimpse of it while I was doing it and he was super excited about a few items (your niece and nephew will be too!)


 

I always feel like shopping for my husband, dad, and brothers is always the hardest. But here are some key items that will never fail!



4. For your gals

I love shopping for my mom and my best friends. Unlike the guys, I always go for things that remind me of them and that have some sort of meaning.



5. Treat yourself

Don’t forget to treat yourself this Holiday season, you deserve it too!
