Accessories Remixed

 Soundtrack: Bebel Gilberto - Samba de Bêncão

Clothes are fun, but in my opinion, it's really in the way you style them that is important. In my mind that means accessories. Accessories always bring a basic look together creating an individualized outfit. I love jewelry, shoes, and bags and I think that you don't need a lot of clothes to look fabulous daily, you just need to know how to spice them up with some fun bling. 

Vestirse es divertido, pero en mi opinión lo mas importante es crear su propio estilo. Para mi, eso significa el uso creativo de joyas, bolsas, y zapatos! No es necesario tener un montón de ropa para estar de moda todo los dias, pero se tiene que saber combinar lo que se tiene! 

Last week, I wore a cute pink dress for the first week of school (here), and accessorized it with a fun Mexican-inspired vintage belt and my go to Dolce Vita Sandals (remember?)! This week I remixed those accessories with my fun Hi-Low skirt from Papaya, and simple A&F crop-top to create a completely different look. What do you guys think?

La semana pasada, usé un vestido rosado para mi primer día de clases (aquí), y lo combiné con un cinturón "vintage" y mis sandalias de Dolce Vita (¿se acuerda?)! Esta semana decidí usar los mismos accesorios (el cinturón y zapatos), con una falda "Hi-Low" de Papaya, y mi camisa simple de A&F. Este "look" es totalmente diferente aunque estoy ultilizando algunas de las mismas piezas. ¿Qué les parece?

Back to School- Regreso a Clases


Although last week was NY fashion week, it was also back to school for us college students. Getting back into the grind of school is always a struggle, but this year, with graduation in May,  I am all the more motivated to finish strong and get my degree. I can't wait to move on to the next stage of life.

Luckily for me, school is in beautiful Southern California, and the weather is gorgeous as usual. Although fall season is starting in the fashion world, I am taking advantage of the sun to get a few more cute summer looks in, before I pull out my booties and tights!

Aunque la semana pasada fue "Fashion Week" en Nueva York, para mi fue la primera semana de clases en la universidad. Siempre es difícil volver a la escuela después del verano, pero como me graduo en mayo, estoy motivada a trabajar duro. 

Gracias a Dios, mi universidad se encuentra en el sur de California, y aquí el clima siempre está perfecto! Estoy aprovechando del calor y estrenando algunos "looks" de verano antes de sacar mis botines y medias para el otoño.

Let's Catch Up!

Hello All,
How have you been? As you might have noticed I have been pretty absent from the blogsphere recently and have missed it quite a bit. I just moved back to school yesterday, after summer break and thought it was a perfect time to catch up with my fellow bloggers.

As you all might remember, this summer I had a few goals. I was doing fitness challenges, hanging out with my family, and focusing on fashion to get a taste of fashion school. I had the best summer ever and really enjoyed myself. Although I ended up taking a break from blogging and the Internet in general, I actually really enjoyed having a little technology break and kicking back to read some good books for a change. R&R was definitely what the doctor ordered.
I though since it has been a while. I would share a few insta-highlights of my summer!

You guys might remember from my Summer Glow post, how excited I was to try Bare Minerals First Resort. Well I did and I love it!

50 Days Free

Hey ladies,
If you remember, before summer started I outlined quite a few goals and resolutions (outlined here) to keep me on track during my break from school, and make sure I was making progress in my life towards being a happier and healthier person overall. A few weeks ago I did an update on those goals to remind myself to stay strong, and it is that time again. This time a have quite a bit of progress to report! 

1) Fitness and Health: 
Summertime for me is synonymous with fitness. Due to bikini season, warm weather, and free time, my health and fitness seem to always take center stage during the summer. This year is no different. As you know if you have been following for a while, I am doing a post study-abroad cleanse for 100 days! I am currently more than half way done, and can proudly declare that I have been sugar-free for over 50 days. Along with that, I have quit eating red meat and refined carbs as well. Not only am I seeing results weight and fitness wise, but my body feels 100 percent better, my acne has cleared up completely, and I have more energy than ever before. Also, almost even more exciting than the rest, sugar is no longer a struggle to not eat, and the phase of constant temptation has past! Yay! If you are interested in following my fitness journey more in depth, or would like #cleaneating and exercise motivation, follow me @100DayzFresh via instagram or ask to join me on My Fitness Pal!

Peacock Details



Almost every time I go out, I try on fifty combinations, and end up in a LBD with strappy heels. Although classic is never a bad way to go, I like to change up my outfits and this green and blue skirt is the perfect thing. A great find, picked up thrifting a while back, this patterned skirt has become a staple closet piece. Dressed up with heels (featured here) or down with sandals and a cardigan, I love the versatility of this item. Matched with my peacock earrings (DIY by yours truly), I love the polished but Bohemian vibe of this look.
How would you style it?

Summer Glow

I used to be under the impression that once I found my shade or my sent, I was set for life. But if you are up on makeup of a fast follower of MUAs (make-up artists), each season seems to call for it's own routine, sent, and style. Just as clothes do, makeup cycles though seasons as well.

This summer, "glowing and dewy" are my go-to makeup buzzwords. And in this category a little goes a long way. In summer I prefer light makeup to give my skin a "natural" shine, and let's-be-honest, not melt off my face in the heat! Here are my current favorite products, and a few I'm dying to try!

Summer Makeup collection

My go to products this summer are :
1) Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
2) Tarte Maracuja Concealer
3) Smashbox BB Cream
4) Bare Minerals Ready Bronzer in The High Dive
5) Marylou Manizer highlighter by theBalm (doubles as a shadow)
6) Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara
7) Born in Paradise by Escada
*My daily lip color is variable based on my outfit and mood, but recently I've been going with a mix of wine colored lipstick under raspberry gloss!

My summer picks to try are:
8) Bare Minerals The First Resort Pack- This beautiful multi-toned bronzer with some sparkle comes with the cutest fan brush and pink gloss. So cute!
9 & 10) Too Faced has been killing me recently with their new products! I've got to try some of the new melted glosses and coco-powder foundation. Loving their products recently!

Ok girls, that's all for now! What are your summer must-have cosmetics?
