Hello Friends! How are you all doing?! I’m doing good. I can’t complain over here. My kids have been so good. Besides me feeling like they want food all day, I’ve actually enjoyed having them home with me. I’m just soaking it all in. I know once school starts I’ll miss them like crazy. And having them home stops me from going to target and buying unnecessary items, LOL! Because it’s too much trouble to get all of us out for a target run and these boys are homebodies.
So speaking of Target I wanted to share a few of my favorite things that I buy about twice a month. They last about a good 2 weeks and I like them all. They are totally random items they don’t even go together, LOL. But that’s what makes this post fun. It’s random but real life shit!
The first set of random items actually go together, I’m obsessed with tone it up protein powder. Like I’ve tried a few and this one is the best. I stick to vanilla because it just goes better with what I like in my smoothie, But I’ve tried the chocolate one and it’s bomb. They have other flavors as well. My go to protein bars are these from tone it up as well. They are actually really good and I love to have these in my pantry for those busy mornings. I just tried the protein bites for the first time and I really like to have these to, They are good for busy days or just wanting something sweet and trying to be good. Tone it up try them!
Ok so these are like random ass items. I for the longest used lady razors and I could never find one I liked. Until the one day I ran out and used the hubby’s razors, about 8 years later I’m still using them. Hand soap I mean we all use it and need it. I’m all about saving a buck and then Target came out with these I fell in love with this scent. Perfect hand soap for the kitchen. Last random item is this fresh gel toilet freshener. Um Hello I live in a house with all boys and a little one that’s still learning how to pee perfectly. So this is much needed, smells good and keeps the bathroom smelling fresh.
Lastly, we can’t forget the Mom juice, This Rose is good and pretty to look at. And you can’t forget your Starbucks to go! Hope you all liked this random post. Till next post.
Hello Friends! Happy first day of spring! I hope you all are doing well. I Figured I’d keep the theme of March for the Blog spring. So my favorite of course are shoes. So what better post but to share all my spring shoe favorites. I love me a good sandal. It can be a flat, a chunky heel, a short heel or even a sexy heel. But Let’s get real I’m a mom and I need kid friendly shoes. And I’m just all about comfort and cute.
So I’ve gathered a few different styles to share and from three of my favorite shoe places. I think these are all great prices. It’s always good to buy a good pair of neutral sandals a better quality because they will be your favorite. I’m still wearing a pair I bought 2 years ago from Aldo that I love.
So here goes, First picks are from Steve madden, I love a slide so much so you will notice most are slides. I don’t care for a sandal that goes around the toe area unless it’s a flip-flop. Which the hubs can’t stand for me to wear, LOL! Slides are comfy and they look stylish.
Second are from Aldo, you ladies know I love Aldo shoes. I’m never disappointed and they are pretty comfortable. They have the best styles to choose from. These were my favorite for spring. I also added a cute mule, I love me a cute spring mule.
And last but not least because these are the best for our wallets! So that means we can buy more pairs. Target, Yes ladies these are all from target. As you can see I found the most and I love all of them. I’m living for the blue slides with a chunky heel I need these ASAP! Most of these are under $30 and they are so cute. I read a few reviews on most and all great.
So ladies I’ve made it easy for you to grab those cute sandals for spring and summer so all you have to do is go grab them before it’s too late. Don’t wait for summer to snag these!
Hello Ladies! Happy first week of Fall. Seriously Fall and spring have always been my favorite seasons. I love the Fall fashion so much. I love layering and I love coats. I mean I can go on and on about what I love about fall. Over the weekend I tried Starbucks new coffee maple pecan with foam , it was a little on the sweet side but the taste and feel was Fall all the way. Something so cozy about fall. But I live in LA so we don’t always get so much fall weather. Believe me when it hits 65 degrees I’m like bring out the coat, LOL!
So with that said, I’m calling all my LA girls out to give you some Fall inspo so we don’t feel left out with the trends! I’m sure by now everyone has seen that leopard print is poppin! I’ve always loved leopard print. It comes and goes but always sticks around. If that makes sense. So if you have any from a few years ago, Bring it on!
I wanted to share this look I put together that’s cute for LA fall. I had been seeing this skirt all over IG from Target. I had to have it. You can style this so many ways. Like the way I did, Also dress it up more with a black pump and a silky camisole. I would also wear it with a vintage tee tied in a knot with some sneakers or mules. I love this skirt. I also added my motorcycle jacket to give it a more edgy look and if it’s a colder in LA. Also my top is a bodysuit old from cotton on, Jacket from Zara similar one here. And shoes from Aldo.
I picked out some other leopard items that would be perfect for this trend and In LA. These pants are so cute I would pair these with a top like I have on with my skirt, a tee or simple tank. This Cami is the perfect way to give that leopard trend a try. Perfect for LA Fall. I would wear this Cami with some jeans, Blue or black will look cute. You can add a red shoe or just simple black. If you don’t like to spend so much on print pieces I would add some accessories. This belt is so cute! You can add it to a simple dress, Over a coat and with some jeans. You can add your pop of leopard with just adding this belt. Another inexpensive way to add the leopard trend to your fall outfits is this scarf. You can wear it in your hair, tie it around your neck or even tie it around your purse strap. A perfect way if you are on a budget but want that leopard trend. All these items are from Zara! Very reasonable prices.
Ok ladies hope you liked my first fall style for 2018. I can’t wait to share some more. I’m trying to give options for everyone and Like I try to do, On a budget! Till next Post!
Hello my beauties! How are you all doing?! I’m over here being Mom. Back To homework, projects, Dances! It’s all fun stuff. I love being mom. My oldest is off to Homecoming this Weekend, So that’s exciting. He’s actually letting me style him, LOL! I’m hoping he lets me take a pic. So look out on Instagram for that.
We all know Fall is coming and pumpkin spice has already made its debut at Starbucks. It’s like as soon as you see that pumpkin spice on the menu, Fall is in the air. Fall officially kicks off Sept 22! So that means fall styles are already at your favorite stores. I haven’t done much fall shopping since I’m off to my vacay soon. I’m still kind of stuck on summer style. But as soon as the weather drops over here in LA, I have my wish list.
First I’m sharing my Target finds. Target is so good and you can’t beat the prices. With all the cool brands at Target you know you can always find the It styles. One of my favorite looks for the fall are silk like skirts. These can be dressed up or casual. Look out for my fall look coming to the blog soon in this leopard skirt. I’ll share how I styled this cute skirt. Leopard is going to be all around this season. I’m not mad at that. It’s so fun. They also have the same skirt in this pretty bronze like color.
Next would be one of my favorite stores that never let’s me down. Whenever I have somewhere to go, I can always count on Zara to have something cute. My list for Zara would need its own post, LOL! So I’m just sharing some basics you can wear all season long and winter. You can pair this body suit with jeans, skirts, shorts (if in la) just about any kind of bottom. I’m loving the sleeves on this body suit. Jeans I mean we all need that perfect pair. I love Zara jeans. The price is good and you can find any style you like. Another trend I’m liking is the Vinyl purses. How great would it be to not change your purse all season if you just get one of the vinyl bags that match everything. I really liked this one.
Last for Clothes would be Urban Outfitters. It’s a store I don’t buy much from. But they have some cute fall staples I really want this year. Like I said I tend to stick to basics. I’ll add the newest earring or maybe a newer shoe style to give my simple outfit that added flare. I’m definitely getting this fleece coat. I had so much FOMO last year when I saw everyone wearing it, I just never purchased it. But for sure this year. Another one I feel everyone needs is a jean jacket. They go with everything. You can’t go wrong with a Jean jacket.
Last on my list would be my absolute favorite, SHOES! I love shoes. If I could, I would have a room filled with shoes. But I don’t so I limit my purchases and try to sell or donate shoes I don’t use anymore. Which I’m kicking myself because not too long ago I got rid of some leopard pumps from BCBG, I swear whoever found those at the goodwill I donated to are lucky! But I’m happy for whoever scored them. So in right now, UGH! These are my picks. I’m not sure which ones I’m going to splurge on. But I will be getting at least one pair. These are all from ALDO.
Hope you all liked my wish list! Can’t wait to style some fall looks! Have a great rest of the week and enjoy that Pumpkin spice! Till next post.
Hello Ladies! Summer is in full swing! We are enjoying the summer so far. We’ve been trying to get out as much as we can on the weekends. Since the hubs works all week. But the boys and I do try to get out during week. We still can’t wait to get out to the beach. So far we have set up play dates for Breaker and hang outs for David, Yes the big boys call it hang outs, LOL! Just trying to keep my boys busy and happy. I’m enjoying having them home. Yes I miss my alone time but they are getting so big that I’m cherishing every moment with them.
Today I wanted to give you some summer style. All of us Mom’s know that these kids grow like weeds. So every season we most likely have to buy new items. Since Breaker was little I’ve always liked old navy for his summer clothes. They always have the cutest styles and the prices are awesome. Not to mention all summer long they have sales. I scored some really cute items at 40% off. I got some cute stuff that I can mix and match all summer long. Breakers wearing a tank and shorts from old navy. I’m kinda obsessed with yellow right now. So of course I ordered him this pair. But they have these in different colors so cute.
When shopping for the boys I’ll get them a few shirts with print but I mostly stick to solid colors. So that way I can match it with anything. The tees are always good to add a sweater or jean jacket once the weather cools up.
For my outfit! A few summer staples that I think we all should have in our closet. A good pair of jean shorts and a white top(linen) for summer, goes with everything. I plan to use this as a cover up with my swimsuits as well. A summer bag and some summer sandals, with a heel or flat. My summer style is very simple as all my season styles, LOL! But for summer, I love to keep it cool and simple. I always add a statement earring to jazz it up. My earrings are from Baublebar. My hat is from Target! I have been enjoying getting dressed, I’m so proud of my consistency with working out. I’m happy with how my clothes look and fit. For the first time in my life I’m not worried about the number on the scale. I’m staying consistent with my workouts and making better food choices. And for that I am proud.
Side note for all my Zara ladies. They are having an awesome sale right now! Check it out.
Hope you ladies liked this summer post with my Mini! Have a great week! Till next post!
Hello my loves! Spring is in the air and I’m loving it. Did you all check out my spring favorites post?! We are enjoying the nice weather so much. We’ve started up our daily evening walks again. When the time changes and the weather is perfect we get in an evening walk when the Hubs gets home. We love it, We walk around our area try to get 2 miles in. And this weekend Breaker learned how to ride his big boy bike(training wheels). So he rode his bike on our walk for the first time this week and did so good. It’s a nice way to get some family time in away from phones and exercise.
So Mom life update. I’m starting to figure out some things to do once the kids are off for summer. I’ll be putting up a blog post on some of the ideas I get. trying to stay local, inexpensive and good for both my 14-year-old and 4-year-old. I really want to get more outdoors with them before it gets too hot. So stay tuned for what I come up with!
Today’s blog post is all about spring style. And I have my side kick to show how to jazz up a boys spring outfit. I absolutely love blazers. They looks so good with denim. It’s really a favorite look of mine. I did a blazer look a few post back with jeans. Now that we are in spring, I think this look is so appropriate for the season.
My look I pretty much had everything I’m wearing since last year other than the blazer. I purchased the blazer right before Easter from Target. I also spotted the same blazer in pink. I think I’ll be snagging that too. My shorts I purchased about 2 years ago from Urban outfitters. I love them. It’s so hard to find the perfect pair of Jean shorts. My shoes are from Aldo I love them and they are on sale now. I added some orange earrings to jazz it up. Some tips I have, with just adding a new pair of earrings or a blazer to some items you already have in your closet can really make a new cute look. Shop within your closet I bet you can make a cute look!
For Breakers look I wanted to spice up his shorts and plain white tee. He was in a wedding a couple of weeks ago and This was his blazer to his suit. I’m trying to get more wears before it doesn’t fit. It was a linen suit so perfect for spring. I love adding jean jackets or cute cardigans to his outfits. They just make a plain outfit look so much cuter. With boys outfits can get pretty plain. So I always find ways to make my boys outfits pop!
Hope you like my Mommy and Mini spring style and got some helpful tips. You ladies have a great week! Till next post.
Hello Beauties! How is this lovely spring weather treating you?! I love it, I just can’t handle the allergies I get from this gorgeous spring weather. Besides that It’s been perfect. I’ve been focusing on my house lately. Trying to change-up a few things. We’ve painted the bathroom, next will paint the kitchen. Just little changes and some new decor. It’s one of the things on my vision board to give my house a mini makeover. We still need some improvements but little by little will get it to a happy place. I’m still trying to figure out what to do with the mountain of toys Breaker has, LOL! I think mini changes around the house just make you feel good. As simple as a new carpet or some new couch pillows. Doesn’t always have to be costly.
For today I wanted to list a few of my Spring favorites. Which I’ll also take with me to the summer season that’s fast approaching. Because I’m all about multiple use and getting your money’s worth.
Processed With Darkroom
My first stop would be my favorite shoes! Every spring/summer I try to find a good pair of nude sandals. I’ll use them all season long until it gets too cold to have my toes out. These sandals are from Zara. I absolutely love them. So cute for dresses, skirt and shorts. These will be on repeat all season. Another pair are these cute pearl slides from Target. They are so cute. I’m still on the hunt for my size I’ve tried them on and they are so cute and comfy but I can’t find my perfect size. I’ll be ordering these online right away. Besides a flip-flop for those pool and beach days. You need to have a nude and black sandal. These will be perfect for the hot days to come.
Next stop would be Makeup duh! My motto is less is more. Especially when the weather is warm. We don’t want to be melting out there. I’ve been using this foundation since December from Laura Mercier. I really like it, But when I was using it during the winter I noticed it was more matte than I normally use. It’s a silk foundation. So now that the temperature is warmer I love it. I know this is going to be my go to for the hot days.It Feels so good on the skin. Only advice is if you are more dry skin use a hydrating primer under. It looks great. Another makeup must have for spring/summer is a liquid highlighter these two are great and just give you that dewy glow we all want for those warm days. Bronzer is a must especially if you have that beautiful golden tan we all long for after the winter. Because we are all making sure we protect our faces with a sun hat or umbrella, Bronzer will help your face blend in with that golden tan. I picked up this cute umbrella in china town for $5 I will be using this when I’m outside. Ladies protect your face from sun. So important!
After makeup we have perfume! We all want to smell good especially when the weather heats up. No one wants to smell sweaty, LOL! I’m not much of a perfume person. Only because I’m really sensitive to smells. I get bad headaches from strong scents. This perfume I’ve had for a while now and I love it. The smell is a softer smell. I would say more on the citrus side. I’m really bad with describing perfumes since I don’t wear much. But this one is very nice and perfect fragrance for spring/summer.
Next is your spring/summer bag. Before kids I would change my purses weekly. But now I’m like too much work. This year I’m trying to be cute again with my bags. The first one is this cute circle straw bag. I’ve been eyeing a bag like this since last summer. My lovely mom ordered this one for me for my Birthday. Only thing is it’s not available until May so I will be waiting at my door for this baby! Another look that is trending right now. The belt bags. These are so cute and I will be getting one. They look cool and not to mention hands free and no stress on your shoulders. WINNING! With these 2 looks you will be set for those spring/summer days.
Earrings!!! You all know I’m a sucker for a cute pair. These earrings will make you look spring/summer ready! These will look cute with any outfit and swimsuit. Go get some!
Lastly, For years I’ve been wanting to spruce up my porch. We spend more time out in front because it’s where Breaker plays. Finally I found chairs I like! I’ve been hunting down Acapulco chairs forever now. They are so expensive. I was jumping up and down when I saw these online at Target. They really did great with this new home line. They are from the new line Opal House. We got the chairs and rug from Target. I’m loving my little porch area. I just need to find a side table and add my little succulents to make it perfect. I will be having my coffee and watching Breaker play all spring/summer long on these chairs.
Hope you all liked this post for my spring favorites! Have a great rest of the week and weekend! Till next post!
Hello my Lovely ladies! First week of spring done and I’m loving it. The rain was so nice last week here in LA. My boys are off for spring break. No vacay plans for us. But having them home is nice and we get to sleep in a little. Both my boys are pretty easy they are not the kind that want to be out and about all the time. They are total homebody kids.
I’ve been in a little creative block. I have most of my post planned for the next couple months but I’m stuck for June, LOL! I guess my brain doesn’t want to work that far ahead. I would love to know what you ladies want to see on the blog. I’ve been wanting to do more recipes but most of my recipes I get on Pinterest. So I’m thinking of doing a post on all the recipes I’ve made from Pinterest. Comment or message me on Instagram of what you would like to see for my summer post!
Today I’m sharing my first spring style of the season. It’s a perfect transition from winter to spring. I used to be always cold. But after kids I don’t get that cold anymore. Just putting Breaker in the car seat I sweat, LOL! So I love light weight clothes and simple. Like I’ve said before the more simple the better for me. I don’t like feeling confined or the feeling of my insides being crushed from tight clothes. It’s just not for me.
So this look I went with a jean skirt I bought last summer from Forever 21. I’ve seen so many this year that I will snag for summer. I love jean skirts. Something so simple yet feminine with a little edge. My Top I picked up at Target from who what wear brand. If you’ve been reading my blog from the beginning you know I love this brand. They never disappoint with the trends and the quality. So cute and so affordable. Just love it. I also loved the ruffle detail on the sleeves that just screams spring! I added my floral booties that are so comfortable. I talked about spring shoes in my last post, Go check it out! I’ve been living in this bag as well. I normally carry my large never full LV bag. But I’ve had really bad shoulder pain , so I have been living for my light weight Kate spade bag. Kate spade is a favorite of mine. Always nice timeless bags.
Hope you ladies liked this outfit post! Hope you all enjoy this beautiful spring break week. Next week I’ll be posting my blog post on Friday in honor of my birthday. I have a very personal post coming. I hope you all will like it. Till next post!
Hello My beauties! Hope you all are doing well this week. LA is finally feeling a little chilly. I myself love a chill in the air with sunny skies. That is my favorite kind of weather. So January came and went, LOL! I mean really it’s almost over. Next month is also a short month so I’m sure that’s going to fly. My oldest son turns 14 in February, crying face emoji! He’s my care bear, he’s such a loving kid.
So who remembers E fashion police? Seriously my favorite show on E with the late Joan Rivers. One of my favorite segments they would do was “Gotta have it!,Make it stop!” I lived for this. So today my post is on this fashion craze, PLAID! It’s pretty popular right now and you see it on bottoms, tops, blazers, hats and shoes. So the question is do you think I’m like “Gotta have it!” or “Make it stop!”.
I’m for sure “Gotta have it!”. I think plaid is one of those patterns like Leopard and Houndstooth. They really never go out of style. It can be used as a neutral. I remember growing up my mom had a houndstooth blazer and beret, I loved when she would wear them. I think these patterns are so chic.
I styled my plaid a little more edgy. I was feeling a little street chic that day. I bought these plaid pants at Target, I was a little sad that the blazer to match was sold out everywhere. I thought it would be fun to have the matching set. I wanted to show a little skin, so I went with a crop top. And of course to make this style more street chic. I added my favorite motorcycle jacket. I’ve said in my New year Goals post that I want to step outside of my comfort zone with style. I remember in my late 20’s I lived to be different at the club, LOL! If dresses were the way to go to the club, I would wear pants. Fashion should be fun! What’s funny is before when My sis and I would be going out and if we planned our outfit, Sometimes that outfit wouldn’t end up being my favorite. It was when we spontaneously decided to go out and we put together a fun fast outfit. I would get more compliments on that rather than my planned out outfit. What I’m trying to say is have fun and don’t plan an outfit so much. Fashion is not so serious.
Hope you ladies enjoyed this post! I hope you all have a great rest of the week. Till next post.
Hello Ladies! I can’t believe Christmas is pretty much here. I seriously think this year went way too fast. So are you all like me? I still need a few last-minute gifts. I always do this to myself. I’m looking forward to my mom and sister coming Friday! My mom lives in Sacramento so I don’t see her as much as I’d like. So I’m super happy she will be with me for the weekend. I know one of the worries we have besides shopping, Cooking, baking and getting your house ready for guest. Is what to wear??? Am I right, LOL! Especially if you have kids making sure they have a nice outfit to wear. Sometimes us Mom’s leave our outfit planning to the last minute.
My family usually goes on the more casual side but still nice. I know some families go to midnight mass also. I put together three styles that would be appropriate for your holiday get together at your house, families or friends. I think also nice enough for midnight mass. I’m more of a jeans girl. I hardly wear dresses unless I have to or it’s really hot. So all these outfit styles are jeans.
My outfit that I have on is so simple and I’m sure all of us have something similar in our closets. I just gave my outfit a pop of red with my shoes and earrings. Both of these I bought specifically for the holidays. These jeans I’m sure you’ve seen them in other post I’ve done. I just love them. My tank is from Target, I think I own quite a few of these now. They are from that new brand A New Day, so soft and comfy. My coat believe it or not, I’ve had for 10 plus years. My sister bought this for me many moons ago for Christmas. It’s so good and still looks so stylish. Shoes also from Target. Earrings are from Charming Charlie. But these tassel earrings are so popular right now I’ve seen similar ones at Forever 21.
The next outfit I put together just to show you a different option similar to what I have on. Like I said these are pretty staple items that most of us have in our wardrobe. A pop of red in a purse, shoe or earring will make you look festive.
Last option I thought this rose gold pop was so cute. Rose gold is so pretty and classy looking. I think still looks very festive. The cream sweater is something you can get at Zara, Target or Forever 21. I would say go with something you know you will be comfortable in for a long night of holiday fun! Hope this Post helped you ladies and you won’t leave your outfit choice to the last-minute.
I wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Sending hugs to you all. Till next post.
