Happy New Year Ladies! Wow 2018, I seriously can’t believe it. 2017, seriously went so fast. It really got me thinking, I need to be more in the moment. Which brings me to today’s post. First, I wanted to share a cute simple winterish outfit. Here in LA we don’t see much winter but it gets chilly for a cute statement coat, sweater etc. But I also wanted to give an update for my blog which I’ve done every month since I started. This month happens to be half a year already. I also wanted to share my New Year Goals.
So if you live in LA, you know we don’t see much Winter. But I’m such an outerwear fan. I love coats, chunky sweaters and cute jackets. This outfit is perfect for a chillier day out in LA, hence the open toe shoes. So if you live where you actually get winter you can totally rock some cute booties with this outfit too. My faux fur bomber is from forever 21. I love it. Such a cozy jacket. My jeans seriously, I pretty much wear them in all my post, LOL! I’m so picky with jeans. I can’t wear anything uncomfortable. These are the most comfiest jeans ever. They are from Zara. My tank is from Target. I have so many colors. They are perfect for under sweaters and jackets. I’ll be for sure wearing them in the warmer days just like that with some shorts and skirts. The quality in this tank is really good and only $8. My shoes are older from Aldo. A staple every lady should own. A simple nude and black strap heel.
Now on to my blog update. I can’t believe it’s already been 6 months. I’m so proud of myself. If you’ve kept up with my monthly update you know it hasn’t been easy. But I’m so happy I’ve made it this far. I’m having fun posting for you ladies. I’m keeping it up and I already have up to March planned out. My goal for my blog is to continue to grow and eventually land collaborations with great companies. I’m also going to be adding more looks on my Instagram. Posting multiple looks on Instagram can get difficult. I’m pretty busy during the week with the kids and I don’t always have someone to take my pictures on random days. But my goal is to add more looks. I promise ladies, I will be sharing some good content. So stick with me.
Lastly, I wanted to share a few Goals I have for the New year. I won’t be sharing my personal vision board. But I’m doing something fun with the hubby. We are making a couple’s vision board on things we would like from each other throughout the year. And will be sharing that on my blog post for January 17 so stay tuned, It should be a funny one. The first and most important is to be more in the moment with life. These years are flying by. My goal is to slow down. I’m always rushing on the daily. I’m sure you Mamas know this. So I’m going to be more prepared for the days so I’m not rushing. Another goal is for my health. I hate the word Diet. But after you pass 35, I feel like you have to really watch what you eat. I’ve always been pretty good with not passing a certain weight. But this year, I want to feel healthy and look better for myself. Eating healthy and exercising doesn’t just make you look good, it helps with your mind and energy. And that is why eating healthy and exercising on the regular is a goal. My last goal I’ll share is to take more mini family vacations. We want to take a big vacation soon but it most likely won’t be this year. So this year, I want to do as many mini ones that our budget allows. Be a little more spontaneous is the Goal.
Well that’s it, my first Post of 2018. I hope you ladies enjoyed reading and I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me and my family. Till next post.

Today I wanted to give you all an update on my Blog adventure. So it’s now 4 months since my first post. Every month I do get discouraged. But the fact that I love doing this, Really helps me get past that feeling. Blogging can be challenging. Trying to keep up with trends and Blog post that will be worth reading. Things like that. I love giving you all great Blogs and useful tips. I would love to hear from you all and let me know if there is anything you would like to know more of or see on my Blog. I decided last month that I would really focus more on mommy blogging. Because it’s what I am and what is most important to me. Of course giving you some cute styles for the busy mom and ideas for kids fashion. Something I have to keep telling myself is not to compare myself to others and not to be so hard on myself. I feel like it was making me really sad. The hubby is so proud of what I’m doing even though this is not a job where I get paid. At least not yet but it’s my goal! He never makes me feel like my blogging isn’t important. He’s been my biggest supporter. I’m very thankful. With that I’m going to keep on moving and blogging! It’s been a fun and hard 4 months. But worth it!

Hello Hermosas! Monday again, LOL! I can’t believe it’s October already, like seriously! It’s also my 3 month Blog update. I have to say, I’m proud of myself. It’s been 3 months and I’m learning so much. Last month I was having a hard time, feeling discouraged. This month I have to say, I did have a week where I had no desire to think of my blog. I was feeling a little blah! This is being completely real but as I get older I find myself getting more emotional when I’m having my monthly lady blessing. I get a little depressed, anxious and not to mention, I feel not so pretty. That literally last about a week. This month I had it really bad. But I’m back to myself and I’m so excited to bring some fun fall looks, fall outings, and just some fun blog post. I decided to add a little more family stuff to my blog because it’s my life and it’s what I love about my life. The fashion is a given because I love me a cute outfit! I am really having fun with my blog. I can’t wait to see what a year will bring me. My goal is to build and grow as a blogger. I’ve connected with some really awesome ladies that help me push myself to do better and not give up. It means so much to me when I see comments from family, friends and ‘new’ friends saying they loved my post. These are the reasons I keep going! Here are a few shots from my photo shoots, which are getting a lot easier!
So a little life update. We survived the first full month of school. Both boys are doing great. My oldest is such a good kid. I mean like every teenager he needs a push in the studying department, but he’s very independent. He just attended his first school dance. That was pretty exciting. I want my son to live life to the fullest, and enjoy school life! My little one geez, Lol! He has his moments at school. I already know when his teachers need to tell me something he’s done. He’s a character let me tell you! I tell Daddy I need to be extra sweet to his teachers because they deal with our lil dude! It’s what keeps me young, dealing with these 2 boys! That’s what life as a mom is. Everyday is something new, everyday is a blessing and everyday I learn more and more how to be a mom! I’m not perfect and it’s not easy but it truly is the best thing in life. Here’s a picture of my oldest and myself before his dance. We we’re laughing at something funny Breaker said! I’m telling you, he’s a character! Hope you ladies liked this post. Have a great week!
