Staying positive

Staying positive

Hello my friends! I’ve missed writing on the blog! I decided to hold off on post until I felt compelled to write. And I felt like writing! I hope you all are hanging in there!No matter what your situation is, We are all feeling this.

Today I wanted to talk to the moms at home. Only because that’s my situation. This week is the 7th week of the kids being home from school and us moms having to take on yet another roll. I say that because we already have a full load. We keep the house clean, we cook for the family, we do laundry for the family, we have to do the crazy shopping right now, btw is a chore these days. And now we must make sure the kids are getting their education. I’m so so in Awe of what our teachers do for our kids. Being home having to make sure they are doing their work hasn’t been easy. I’m not about sugar coating this situation acting like I have it all together. Because truthfully I don’t. I’m not forcing more on my kids besides what they have to do. I’m not even trying to get them to do a full day of studies. Honestly I’m lucky my little one who’s in kindergarten last an hour. Thankfully I think his teacher realizes this and assigns the perfect amount. My high schooler I feel he should work on his is own. Besides me sounding like a broken record asking him did you log on yet?! I told him if he chooses not to log on he’s only hurting himself! I thankfully have a good kid and so far is doing what he needs to. Screen time yes I let it go on for way too long ,but to be honest all of us adults are probably on ours more too. I just make sure they are learning something descent on those iPads and lap tops!

And for me I sometimes get angry and say when do I have time! I find myself in a bad mood because I can’t get that workout in earlier because I have to help with school work or I can’t sit and watch a show on my own because the house is full! All the things I was enjoying when everyone was at school and work. But I really try to stop myself from getting upset and say they are all feeling it in their own way. My oldest misses his friends so much and going to school, my little one cried saying he misses kindergarten and playing in the classroom, the hubby feels he has to be working 24/7 he misses being able to shut down at 6! So they all are feeling it. I just tell myself stay positive and just enjoy them being home.

So stay strong, stay home and stay safe! Till next post with lots of prayers and hugs!

Biker shorts but make it fashion

Biker shorts but make it fashion

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is staying safe and at home. Bless those that have to go to work during this time and all the essential workers. I pray for them daily. I’m praying so hard for better days. Believe me I even feel weird putting out blog post with the title I have today. I promise I’m not being insensitive. Writing and being creative is how I cope with anxiety. I’ve been having it really bad. I’m the designated person that goes out to get supplies and I get the worst anxiety every time I have to go out. So staying focused and creative on my blog helps me. Even Breaker helps me out! Check out my video on Instagram he’s the one tossing me the accessories, Lol!

So today I thought why not share some of my Pinterest finds for some biker shorts fashion! I’m trying to really get out of my sweats everyday. I mean they are so comfy but I also feel better when I get somewhat dressed and put a little makeup on! I even put earrings on everyday because it makes me happy. And what better way to look cute but stay comfy are biker shorts! I love me a comfy pair and it reminds me I have legs! Take a look at my Pinterest INSPO and check out my video on Instagram for some more inspo follow me @stylesencillo!

keeping it simple just the way I like! Please stay safe out there! Things will get better!

Crafts at home!

Crafts at home!

Hello friends! I missed you all so much! I really needed a break and honestly when all this corona virus started I felt so uninspired. I’m still not completely ready to be back, but writing in my blog makes me feel so much better. And right now besides helping the boys with school, mostly my little one. And cooking and just keeping the house in order with everyone home 24/7, I needed an outlet. My blog has always been that for me. Not sure being quarantined for the next 30 days will have me creating, But I’m going to try for my sanity! I’ll share as much as I can with not being able to take too many photos. You know I love to try all the new new! And right now I’m just not shopping as much! But I’m really going to use my crafty and creative side to get some fun blogs out!

My Birthday is this Monday and normally I have a fun birthday shoot with my girl, but I’ll save it for my 3 year bloggiversary in July! As for this birthday all I asked for was a no cooking, no washing dishes day! Like for real, who can relate to all the dish washing?! I’ll write next on the blog what kind of schedule I’ve made that is keeping me from not quitting,lol! Or throwing my kids out of the house! Joking, but not joking, stay tuned for next blog!

My spring zara wish list

My spring zara wish list

Hello my beauties! March has started and what does that mean?! Spring is near! So much is beautiful about spring! The weather, the fact that it’s closer to summer. We get longer days, and not to mention we get to show some skin! I’m excited for some spring fashion. The only thing I don’t look forward to is allergies, lol! But hey I’m all good with it!

Spring fashion is just as fun as fall fashion just a little opposite. Instead of adding the jeans we add the jean shorts with blazers! I love love that look, or even a dress with a blazer. What’s the best is adding some color. Pastels are beautiful to add to your spring outfits! Nights are still chilly so adding a cute sweater or some booties can still be ok for spring. I think a white bootie will be great! I’m on the hunt for some!

811BD0AB-3C17-4C55-928A-C33AC11F8615A0B80F1B-7C6E-490B-A0C7-FD38AFA89ECDBC0533B1-BBF0-4481-BB7B-2B1851B201788BC9B424-DB6C-4E9B-8BF8-C44A7C69787F

But for today I rounded up my wish list from Zara, gives you an idea of great pieces to add to your wardrobe that are so versatile. I picked up the clear mules and they are going to be my go to for spring and summer. They are also very comfy. A white button up is a must for everyone’s closet. Wide leg pants are so fun for spring! Add a tank or a tee knotted, you have one cute outfit! Pretty much my wish List all from Zara! Have fun shopping! And don’t forget to turn your clocks this weekend, hello longer days, oh how I’ve missed you! Till next post!

What I love about Disneyland

What I love about Disneyland

Hello friends!! This is the last post for the month of love! And I thought how fun to do what I love about Disneyland! First of all it’s already almost March like, wth! Spring is coming in strong and I’m excited for some spring fashion! I’ll be doing a spring post next week! Some fashion must! Fall and spring have always been my favorite! So I’m super pumped!

So let’s get started with my Disney love! First I want to talk about annual passes. We were pass holders before, when breaker was 2, but we hardly went. So we had taken some time away. We decided to get them again when Breaker turned 6, he’s so into Disney. So far we have loved having our passes. They are pricy, but if you plan to visit enough in a year they are so worth it! I recommend the deluxe passes. They are not as pricy as the others and they have good days to go. Not so many block out dates. The only thing is if you like summer days don’t get this one they are blocked almost all summer. Go with what I have the signature. The reason I have signature and not deluxe like my hubby and breaker is for the parking. Signature includes parking. We go 2-3 times a month and at $25 a day parking it made more sense. I’m also not blocked a lot. So if you don’t mind paying more go with that one. Totally worth it if you plan to go a lot.

Food ok, we are still exploring food! But some of my must haves are the clam chowder in bread bowl. They have this in New Orleans square and the pier at DCA. It’s a fav! I love the red cart in Main Street for a good old corn dog, so yummy! Jolly holiday has the best treats if you have a sweet tooth. And let’s not forget about the churros. You can’t go wrong. And by far my favorite treat is the beignets in New Orleans square too! If you need a drink head over to DCA for a yummy drink at lamplight lounge. We love following magic journeys on YouTube and Instagram for all the latest yummy foods at Disneyland!

Fashion you all know I love some cute clothes! And we all know most love the great photo opportunities at Disneyland! So we all need to look cute, but I mean comfort is key! I usually go with my most comfy jeans especially when I know I want photos. If it’s a lazy day going I opt for sweats or leggings. Hot days I go with my comfy jean shorts. I love to go on theme. Who doesn’t love to wear a Disney shirt to go along with the cute ears! My go to places are H&M and zara for my Disney needs! They always have the cutest tees and you can’t go wrong with some jeans and tee! For Breaker I usually get his shirts from H&M or kids gap. I always wear converse or my comfy adidas. So try to stick to a shoe you know is great for walking. Good thing sneakers are so on trend!

So much more but I’ll do a more foodie one soon with pictures! Because low key we go to eat!

till next post!

Product love

Product love

Hello friends! Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful Valentine’s Day! We actually asked the boys what they wanted and they picked shake shack, and that was perfect! I love that place. So our valentines was a family night out. This month I wanted to stick to things I love! So to continue with that I wanted to share the products and items I’m loving right now. Most I’ve been using for a long time.

66F3E632-FB2E-4F93-A34F-F3D4990AA784

First is for sure skin care favorites! I finally have a skin regimen that I see my skin loves. I also think washing your face every night and using an spf is important. I’ve talked about summer Fridays before and I’m talking about them now! They just came out with a gel cleanser. I’ve always been more sensitive to face washes. So when I heard they were coming out with a gel cleanser,I had to have it. I’ve only been using it for a little over a week now. And my first impression is it’s not drying. The worst is when you use a face wash and your face feels instantly dry. Not this one, it cleanses really well and so far so good. My absolute favorite is the pumpkin over time mask. This I use about 2 times a week. I’ve been using the cc me serum as well and I like it, haven’t seen much of a difference in my dark spots beside them not getting darker. I have noticed my pores are less noticeable which is a plus! I do love the jet lag mask, it became my night cream and under eye cream and it’s great! If you have all of these I promise your skin will love you.

Accessories! I love some Accessories, at the moment I’m all about a gold loop. And I actually love the packs from H&M,they are so fun and they don’t hurt my ears. I’m also loving headbands right now, but I don’t like when they are tight and uncomfortable, the ones from HM are so cute, inexpensive and they don’t hurt. Check them out!

Vitamins!! I’m about to turn 41 soon and I started taking a multi vitamin. I’m loving these and the hubby even takes the one for men! Check them out!

Lastly would be my favorite nail polish that I take every time I get a pedicure. I normally just get white on my toes, I know kinda boring but it just looks good with everything! This one is my absolute favorite and last a long time. During winter I can get away with a pedi once a month. Try it!

So that’s it, my product love post! Let me know if you’ve tried any. Hope you liked this post, till next time!

Valentine’s pop of pink

Valentine’s pop of pink

Happy Wednesday my friends! Hope you all are having a wonderful week. I’m doing well, we had a nice family getaway to Big Bear this past weekend. Really no snow, but we got lucky on the day we left. It snowed very lightly so Breaker got to see that for the first time. He thought the snow at Disneyland was real so him seeing real snow made my heart smile.

Talking about hearts! Who is ready for Valentine’s Day?! Do you make a big day of it, do you keep it casual, fancy or is it a stay in cozy kinda night? We wanted to go out since it’s on a Friday, but we are kinda pooped from big bear and getting back to weekday life. So we are leaving plans in the air. I’m cool with ordering in with a drink or two. But getting dressed up is so fun!

Talking dressing up, if you have plans set in stone! Do you have your outfit picked? Well if not I’ve put together some INSPO for you! I love a pop of pink for Valentine’s Day! Most go with red, which is beautiful. But pink is so girly!  You can even mix both and that looks so chic! If I was going out I’d wear some leather faux pants, a bodysuit and with a pop of pink on my feet! Edgy with a little girly twist! But check out what I found and hopefully you can get some INSPO for your sweetheart night! Hope you all have a beautiful Valentine’s Day! Till next post!

My sweet boy is 16

My sweet boy is 16

Hello friends Happy February! The month of love! Who all still goes out for Valentine’s Day? I haven’t in years but I think me and the hubby are going to this year, so cool it is on a Friday.

Today’s post since it’s the month of love, I thought how fitting is it to dedicate my first post to my first born. He is the reason my heart grew bigger.

My David, he just had his 16th birthday. Imagine 16 years as a mom, I remember the day I went into labor with him. He was my little big guy, a whole 6lbs 11oz but long, I knew he was going to be big, he had the biggest hands and his feet were too big for his newborn pajama. I had to always cut the bottoms. He was my gentle giant. And now he’s 16 a young man that has this beautiful heart. He’s so caring and loving with everyone. I know he has a bright future. But this year he will hopefully get his license and maybe get a summer job, lol! No but really He has his written text very soon. It’s crazy!

I’m so proud of him. And I can’t wait to see him grow more as a person. He has brought so much joy to my heart for 16 years. So Happy sweet 16 my baby.

Moms out there that might be worried about having a second baby because you feel you can’t love anyone as much as you do your first, don’t be scared. Your heart is capable of amazing things. You love them just as much and your heart grows fonder every year they grow. The heart is an amazing thing and gets bigger with the more people we allow in.

Till next post!

No rules to Goals

No rules to Goals

Hello my friends!! Ok so I’ve kept my theme of January devoted to the new year and goals. This is my last post for January so I wanted to end it on a simple note.

Do not spend your year beating yourself up on trying to get through all the goals. I honestly don’t think goals have to take over your life. Life is way too short for you to stress over a goal you made for yourself. Enjoy life that’s important. A simple goal doesn’t mean less than a big goal. Who’s to say your simple goal isn’t a big deal to you. Don’t let anyone make you feel like your goals are not big enough. 

Goals are great to have they keep you in line. But don’t feel discouraged because others are hitting their goals and you aren’t. You are on your own path, don’t worry what path others are on. You make your path on your own. So no rush and just remember to enjoy everyday. We are absolutely never promised the next.

So like I said before, no goal is too small, and don’t ever feel a goal is too big. You have the ability to make it happen. With that you have 336 days as of today to work on what you have to work on. Don’t follow someone else’s goals. Focus on you and what makes you happy.

My number one goal is family, spend more time with them, make more memories and just enjoy the time we have with them. And day 29 of that I’m on the right path. Let’s all cheer each other on. Till next post.

Starting 2020 right

Starting 2020 right

Hello my friends! Ok so I’m using January as a stepping stone into the new year! So why not share my steps with you! I don’t like to start off so crazy like giving myself all these rules and goals! Like for real it’s just torture to yourself! I like to start off with manageable goals! And once I start to see myself achieving these manageable goals, I add more! It’s less disappointing at the end.

So something I can already check off my list and let me tell you it’s the most important, is making our dr appointments and dental appointments. Health is the most important in my book! I made sure to schedule all appts so I know we are set and healthy! Some of us will put these off and let me tell you, if you have yearly goals that’s great! But nothing is more important than health. If you are not healthy, how are you going to accomplish anything? So make those appointments!

Dentist! Most of us hate them lol! Well not hate just scared of them. But oral care is just as important as physical. So get it over with and book those dental appointments! Believe me I have a huge phobia with the dentist but hell it feels good to get those choppers cleaned! So book your appointment!

Thats it! Getting those done for my family take a lot of stress off me in the beginning of the year! So we can proceed with our own individual goals and just be happy! Till next post!
