Sugar-free Livin' + Summer Fitness Challege

 Soundtrack: Sunday Morning- Maroon Five

Hey Beauties,

Happy Sunday! How are you guys doing?

Today I will be talking about fitness and my own fitness journey and the steps I am taking to create a fun, healthy, body positive, fit lifestyle! If you know me personally or even just from the Internet sphere, you probably am aware of my slight obsession with fitness and healthy living. I love fitness challenges and healthy food, so I wanted to share with you guys my 8 week fitness challenge and goals for it, as well as talk about my sugar-free lifestyle and the benefits I have found in cutting daily added sugars out of my diet! Hope you enjoy!

Summertime Fine


Hey dolls,

Happy hump day! If you have been following me for a while, you know how much I love summer. It is by far my favorite season. Summer is fabulous for many reasons (no school, mangoes, iced coffee to name a few) but mainly fashionably! The summer sun allows for tons of versatility outfit wise, but even more than that, the beauty products marked for summer are far superior to any other season. All though I wear bronzer year round, summer brings out the sparkle and smile in everyone and it shows in my Sephora shopping basket.  

Check out my past posts on last year's must have summer makeup, reviews, and my favorite bronzers.

I spent a spontaneous day Monday in downtown San Francisco literally hopping from one makeup counter to the next. By the end I was glitter covered and wearing enough perfume for at least ten people. Pretty successful I would say :) After all that exploring, I thought I would share a few of my top summer products with you all:

1) Estée Lauder Summer Collection: Available at Macy's

Estée Lauder Summer Collection
From the musky Bronze Goddess perfume to the perfect nudes pallet, I love everything about Estée Lauder's summer collection. They are also offering a cute gift packet from Macy's for a limited time! :)

Weave Talk- Drawstring Ponytail Review

Hey Chicas, 

Happy Thursday! Like many fashion bloggers, I love to manipulate my appearance, but I don't always have a lot of time or patience. Do to this, I am always looking for ways to cut my beauty routine time down, but still come out with a fun and put together look! More glam, less time is what I'm going for.

Based on this, as we all know, hair styling can take quite a bit of time. Wither you are trying to juggle hot tools, braid maintenance, or trying to perfect an up-do, you can easily spend 20 minutes in front of the mirror!

Do to this, as well as my love for trying new things, I recently purchased a beautiful clip in ponytail from my local beauty supply store. I had been doing lots of research on clip-in extensions (because I am a fanatica!) and I discovered that human-hair clip ponytails were pretty hard to come by (and pricey) so I decided to go with the synthetic style that I could get close by. I ended up purchasing the a synthetic drawstring with combs, ponytail piece from Magic Touch Collections in Wavy. The item number is DSP-1533 and I bought it in color #2. Although I'm struggling to find the exact product online, here is a similar style from Beshe.


The drawstring ponytail itself! Isn't it pretty?!

Back in Action!

Hey ladies!

It has been more than a while since I last posted (since November!!!) so there is quite a bit of catching up we need to do! First of all let me say Happy 2015! I hope the first part of this year has been nice for you all! I for one am glad summer is almost here, I need some R&R and some sun in my life!

To give you all a few little update about me for the past few months here goes!
The biggest update is that I graduated college at the beginning of this month (May 2015) so that was a HUGE accomplishment for me! I could not be happier to be finished. Senior year of college was bitter sweet and quite a bit of work, so that explains the majority of my absence for the blogsphere. Another mile stone for me, was finishing my senior thesis, written completely in Spanish to fulfill my Spanish major. I wrote about the Brazilian Fashion industry and the design identity that drives it, which gave me the opportunity to combine both my interest in Latin America and my passion for fashion! It was a lot of work, but it was also a very fulfilling experience. Other than school, I have spent the past few months working on my health and happiness. Yoga has become a huge part of my life (shout out to my amazing instructor Lisette @ The Yoga Unit in Claremont!) If you want a great fitness coach and experience she is the one and I highly recommend her classes! Do to this, yoga is going to become a new blog staple so hopefully you will start seeing yoga related fashion and fitness posts on featured regularly. Aside from that, I also had a bit of fun before graduating! My friends and I all went down to San Diego for a week to have one last fiesta before walking the stage. Let's just say, what happens in SD stays in SD! Since then, I have relocated back to the Bay Area and am in transition from college to the real world. Wish me luck!

Anyways, that's enough rambling for now! I'm glad to be back in the blogsphere as well as the Bay! Here are a few photos from the past few months!

Style Steals

 

If you don't follow Song of Style, you can't call yourself a fashion blogger. It is that simple. I have been following Aimee Song for four years now or so, watching her blog and popularity grow. She has become a fashion icon for many of us style girls and I love getting inspiration from her looks.

Hola chicas,
¿Han escuchado de Aimee Song, la bloggera de Song of Style ? Yo he estado siguendo su blog por unos cuatro años ya, y es impresionante como se ha convertido en un icono de moda a través de su blog.

Solids & Stripes

Hola Chicas,
How have you been? I promise I haven't forgotten about keeping you all updated, but I am a student before a blogger and sometimes I have to put my books first. Clearly that is what has been happening because I haven't posted in over a month, oops!

Hola Chicas,
¿Como están? ¡Les prometo  que no las habia olivadado! A veces por ser estudiante, tengo que pasar  todo mi tiempo estudiando. Obviamente este es el caso ahora, porque no he escrito en un mes. ¡Oops!

Color Blocking


Hey Ladies,
Happy October, and birthday to all the Libras out there! I personally love fall (remember?), but here in LA, summer is taking its sweet time to move over. Starbucks has started selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes but us LA girls are still drinking hibiscus iced tea. To be perfectly honest, that's just fine with me! I am enjoying the heat.

Hola Chicas, 
Feliz octubre y feliz cumpleaños a todos libras! Personalmente, amo la temporada de otoño (te acuerdas?), pero aquí en Los Angeles, el otoño todavía no ha llegado. Ya en Starbucks se puede conseguir lattes de calabaza con especias, pero las chicas en LA siguen tomando té frio de jamaíca. En realidad, no me molesta en lo absoluto yo sigo aprevechando el calor!
