New Years Eve OUTFITS AND PLANS

THIS NEW YEAR I PLAN TO DO 3 THINGS DIFFERENT….

 

New Years Eve is here and I’m so excited to start fresh! I don’t know about you but I’m so eager to get 2018 rollin through and accomplishing 3 tasks I have set my mind to. Over the past years I have noticed how frustrating it would be for me to welcome the new year, especially during the week of my birthday because I would turn a year older and notice how I had not managed to meet my personal goals, and to top it off the new year was approaching and I had nothing to show for.

Of course being young means making a TON of mistakes, but I plan on making this year my last. So, the question is, what 3 things do I plan on doing different this 2018?

 

3 Things I will do different

  1. Set a routine
  2. Invest my savings
  3. Travel

NOW THAT ITS SETTLED , MOVING ON TO OUTFITS

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

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 🙂

Pajama Shirt Done Casual

pajama-shirt-done-casual

While I love to be in plain ol t-shirts, there is just no escaping my love for casual chicness.  I love that the weather is finally getting some sense into itself and longs levees are sounding super perfect!

Pairing pajama shirts with classic blue jeans and colorful heels, or sneakers, are what brings my creativeness out. Who doesn’t like to look good and feel creative at the same time 🙂 Its the perfect shirt for casual outings in the city.  Just in time for thanksgiving.

New Desires

After taking time off for a much needed “me time”, I learned that I should do that more often (okay, maybe not every week) but in doing so it allows me to discover and imput new things that I probably would have never thought of, or even pictured myself wearing into my everyday life. This of course leads me to sports bras.

long-beach-california

Now I personally have always had a great body, that obviously was before I got pregnant,  and to be super honest….I had been avoiding wearing anything that could possibly show my stomach. Even the tiniest peekaboo, I would pass on it. It never occurred to me that after being a mom I was not going to be myself again (body wise). I tried a ton of ways to lose my flabby belly skin. I even got to the point were I was willing to take pills in order to lose my fatness. And it turned out to be the greatest thing that I could have stumbled upon.

I learned that being a mom does not mean that you are restricted from wearing certain things. We (moms) are the rocks of our families, and sure we may never have some alone time ever again, but that is the beauty of motherhood. And since we always put ourselves last, in fashion we should put ourselves first! Respecting and learning to love our bodies is worth more than any  materialistic object. So go ahead and wear your favorite sports bra with your office blazer or coat! Our bodies deserve to be flaunted ❤

Black For Fall & Summer

black-leather-skirt

Although fall has already arrived, I still can’t help but to slowly transition out of the summer phase. The weather has not been much of a help either, and yet I usually take for granted the summer nights and days. While I already want to get fall started, I know ill have those mixed feelings of being stuck between hot and cold. So….here is my mixture combined into one. And of course you can never go wrong with black right?

A touch of oxfords and scarfs make the final result look great for both summer and fall.

Why Culottes Are My Best Weapon

a-new-day

Culottes have this je ne sais quoi feel to them. I cannot explain how many times they have saved me from not knowing what to wear to pairing them with such a stylish top, thus equaling to a super chic stylish outfit. They are literally life savers (in my fashion world of course). These cute ones I was able to find at Forever 21 for such an amazing low price!

target-style

No matter how often I decide to wear them, they are the only piece of clothing I have no problem repeating. It makes me feel like if I am rocking any type of shoes or top whenever I have them on. Although they are the best, I think I need more in different colors. A girl can never have too many culottes, right? 🙂

The Modern Gladiator

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

Im not trying to be all feminist here and say that women are better than men, but women do deserve a ton of credit when it comes to fighting. Being a mom, I can see everything my mom and my grandma and all moms and non moms out there have had to go through, and yet still little to no credit is given to them.

Women are the rock of all families. When everything else seems to be falling apart, there we are, going to the rescue. But why not go to the rescue for ourselves?

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

While putting together this outfit I stopped and realized that although those gladiator days are over, we still have our battles to fight. And what better way to fight them than by looking stylish? I believe we all deserve to feel at our best, even when we are at our worst.

Dress up today, tomorrow, and the day after that because you are the modern gladiator ready to fight your problems one stylish outfit at a time 🙂

Much love, Karen ❤
