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


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.

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



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.




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


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




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!?

Tropical Summer Wishlist

Hello loves! Monday is here and we are back at it again. I hope your monday has started off on the right note, and if not, don’t sweat it! Your day will come 🙂

I wanted to take the time to write this post because as we know, summer FINALLY started and we need to be prepared both fashion wise and budget friendly. I recently discovered, and maybe you have heard of it, SHE INSIDE. It is the most AFFORDABLE and stylish online clothing store. I have gotten a few pieces from them and it took those few items to get me hooked with wanting to buy more.

I have already started browsing through their items and found such amazing deals on tropical themed clothes! And yes, I have already started adding items to my cart as we speak (hope my hubs doesn’t check the bank account 😀 ).

Any way, below I have listed the items I think we all need to have, check it out and comment below which is your fave!

Much love, Karen ❤

Casually Stylish




FOREVER 21 off the shoulder top,  LEVIS STEVE MADDEN suede heels,  NORDSTROM jewelry, MERONA FOR TARGET bucket bag

I have deep love for denim, and I quite often wear the same ones repeatedly. I know we must have denim at all times (especially us moms) to prevent those unexpected stains from being noticeable, but that does not mean we have to wear the classic t-shirt with sneakers, which is fine don’t get me wrong, but adding some accessories does some big difference. Accessories really accentuate whatever top you have on giving it a casual vibe along with the jeans (ripped ones are my fave!). So don’t be shy and bring out those long long stored jewelry (yes, they need some love too) necklaces, rings, earrings, even watches.

Much Love, Karen ❤

A Twist On Slacks




A lot of times many people see slacks as a strict uniform for work. I, on the other hand think it’s the best way to be comfortable while wearing slacks in a casual way. So, since I grabbed these amazing and SUPER affordable slacks at H&M, I got into the nice and fresh spring mood and decided to pair them up with platform sandals.  basic t-shirt, really any, will do the trick of making it all come together.By the way, how cute is the bucket bag! I literally melted when I saw it lol. I think ill keep on experimenting more classy looks with it, maybe a 3 looks in one? what do you think?
