Mom on the go

DSC01288-2

When I became a mom, of course nothing was the same. But, I must say that motherhood is extremely beautiful. And with that said, mom uniform came into being once my son turned two. I realized that my usual go-tos were jeans, and a t-shirt with sneakers. It was a tedious repetition that went on for days, and thats why I have decided to create a section called Mom Uniform.Each Wednesday, I will be bringing some new ways to spice up our typical day to day staples.

Todays spice ups are red hot sneakers (could be any color as well) with a blazer. Its the perfect way to look like a chic mama. It makes getting ready for drop-offs super easy.

what do you think? 🙂

Valentines Day Outfits

Happy Monday!

It feels like its been forever since I blogged! Obviously life happens and we gotta do what we gotta do. Im super excited to be starting off February with some cute styling options for Valentines day, and I know that you will love what I have in mind.

For starters, who doesn’t love a LBD? I know I sure do because its the easiest thing to wear without having to put so much thought into combining and all that extra good stuff that can become tedious at times (mom probs, at least for me). Here I chose two perfect options:

1. The Stylish LBD  (perfect for clubs too)

My Top 3 Winter Staples

Winter is almost here, even though here in California it seems more like fall.

I can’t complain too much though because the weather has been tricky and wearing sweaters has been a tad bit dreary due to the semi heat we get. But with that being said, I am more than excited for winter to arrive because I want to wear my top 3 winter staples each and every day.

The first is the TRENCH COAT

It is a must in my closet. It’s the best fashion accessory to wear for any occasion. Layer anything under and top it off with the trench. It’s a warmer indeed.

SHOP THIS TRENCH COAT :Floral trench coat

Next is STATEMENT SWEATERS

One of my favorite fashion trends this year has got to be the statement sweaters. It’s a different approach to an ordinary simple sweater and I find it spices things up a bit.

SHOP THIS SWEATER: Bow tie sweater

Lastly the SHORT DRESS

I love boots, especially knee high boots. I find that short dresses are the key to flaunt those long and tall boots. They both meet half way creating a super stylish combo.

Skin Care Time With ALOETTE

Aloe Vera has been known to be the best ingredient in achieving perfect and flawless skin. ALOETTE is known for their natural base product, Aloe Vera. Making the skin feel nourished and refreshed each time. I have been so intrigued lately, since I see my mom buy it daily, that I decied it was time to pay attention to my skin. I am aware that prepping the skin is essential in the long run, and I have been noticing that my skin needed a little TLC, but in this case it needed some Aloe Vera. So with out doubting, I can say that I have found the products I will probably return to each time after they run out.

Keeping scrolling to see my review on each of these ALOETTE products.

1.MUDDY UP Deep Cleansing MUD Masque

aloette-skin-care

mud-mask

I absolutely adore this mask! I love how it is formulated with cucumber extract and salicylic acid. Thats the part I found so interesting! Since I have oily skin, its definitely a win for my skin. I really liked how it quickly grabs onto your skin and starts to work instantly, removing dirt, oil, and the appearance of my pores are reduced.

The feeling afterwards is a smooth matte finish. I will for sure keep on doing this mask twice a week.

2.NUTRI-HYDRATING MIST

aloe-vera-mist

This hydrating mist claims to leave you glowing and giving you a healthy looking complexion look. I must say, it totally does! I tried it once, and it only took that once to be convinced when I looked in the mirror. Its so cool how the mist has vitamins A, E, and C, giving your skin that drink it needs. You can literally spray it everywhere on your body, and over your makeup, I mean its the quickest thing to do in the morning to achieve that glowy look.

TIP: spray it only 3x on your face , other wise you might get that sticky feeling if sprayed too many times.

3.INTESTIY STRETCH Lash-Lengthening Mascara

aloette-mascara

Now this mascara, it already comes angled so its quite easy and quick to get all the lashes done fast. I am amazed at the fact that its formula is made of vitamin B5, rose water, jojoba and roseship seed oil.  I love how much length it gives to my lashes, its a great source of vitamins for the lashes.

TIP: If you have straight long lashes, steer away from this mascara. If you have natural curly lashes, by all means, go for it 🙂

Summer Favorite: Espadrille Sneaker

Hi everyone! I can’t explain the joy I am having right now, and that is all due to shoes! Yes I know sounds funny right, but I have been eyeing espadrille sneakers ever since the day they came out, but of course being a fashion blogger doesn’t always mean I get to keep up with the trends every time they come out. It seems ironic not to be, but in these times who isn’t on a budget?! And all of this to say that my espadrille dream came true thanks to MATTALOU!

This local boutique shop in Long Beach, CA has the most unique items you can possibly ever imagine! And their shoes, well they are love at first sight! I have found great items at affordable prices. The espadrille sneaker was no exception and I immediately had to have it. It was the perfect staple for summer. The comfiness is UNBELIEVABLE! I can literally walk for 3 hrs and not feel sore at all. The best part is that it pairs well with anything I want to wear, and its extremely stylish (of course :)).

How To Pull Off An Outfit With No Jewelry

How-To-Style-Culottes

DSC07435

I am very guilty of not wanting to wear accessories very often. At times I even forget to add jewelry to an outfit I’m planning on shooting, but of course as a mom it can be very tough trying to remember everything when you have 10 min to get ready and on top of that your toddler wants to eat (again!). But thankfully I have discovered 4 easy tricks that can save you much time when getting ready, and not even bother reaching into your jewelry box.

First: Pick a neutral bottom color such as white, beige, or even regular jeans

Second: Patterend blouses or striped shirts definitely will work

Third: Put on sandals with prints on them, or low heels with two toned colors

Fourth: Pick your favorite purse (or do rock paper scissors to decide)

Et Voila! You will have your outfit ready in no time and all you need is to throw on your shades. Easy right!?
