Hair-Indigo Renegade Winter Fashion Gala

I know I am a little behind posting this but, I've had a lot going on lately.  Better late than never! I was invited to go to a Hair/Fashion Show a couple week ago and it was wonderful.  The building where the show took place looked like a castle, it was decorated very chic with a dessert and beverage station.  Shon and Erica did an amazing job the hair was amazing and the clothes exquisite (I will hopefully have another post in the future with this designer) It was hard choosing my favorite pictures from this night so there are quite a bit.

I love the faux leather sides of this dress

I love this outfit, it is 80s chic.

this dress is perfect for work and to go out after work.

Be Red Carpet Ready Every Day with Divina Latina

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Unilever and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, All opinions are my own.

So I've often asked myself what does it mean to be red carpet ready?  For me it is basically taking time for yourself to look and feel great everyday, to pamper yourself even if it's just using a product that makes you feel good.  So when I get ready in the morning I like to start my day with with the Caress Tempting Whisper body wash, I mean have you smelled this body wash? Let me tell you it is heaven in a bottle, the floral scent of white peony with a fruity accent of red plums, makes it a playful and sensual scent that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth with a heavenly lingering scent all day long. I am telling you, you will love this body wash it truly makes you feel divine.  Next it's an outfit to make you feel good I always try to keep it simple as a mom of 2 boys I have to be ready to chase after them at any given moment.

To end the day I like to unwind by watching TV and while I do that I clean my face with the Pond's Luminous Clean towelettes, I have to tell you I love these little wipes, they take off every bit of make-up without drying out my face. I have really sensitive skin so I was a worried about using these but I knew that Pond's has been around for a very long time so I gave them a shot and I am in love.  These towelettes have white Kaolin clay which is a natural mineral known to act like a magnet to draw out deep dwelling impurities and make-up to leave you with luminous skin. 

I believe that you can feel and be red carpet ready using products to make you feel and look great, without breaking the bank for example did you know that the Divina Latina products are available at CVS/pharmacy and as an added bonus, they are eligible for special ExtraBucks Rewards, when you purchase $50 worth of beauty products you receive $5 ExtraBucks! I mean who doesn't love ExtraBucks??

These are simple easy steps to always be Red Carpet Ready Everyday with

Hope you've enjoyed this post

I Must Confess, I LOVE Color!!

I love wearing bold colors, it just makes me feel happy whenever I wear them.  The people in my office often tell me "you look very bright today" and I say thanks I am just trying to bring a little color into the office.  There is something about the classic pink and blue combination that I just love so I put them together and added my gorgeous HM black printed blazer to add a little something else (not like I need anything else) overall I was very happy with the results of this outfit and I had this cheesy smile all day because it just made me that happy.  What colors are you loving right now?
Me encanta usar colores llamativos, tan sólo ponerme un color vibrante me siento feliz. La gente en mi oficina me dicen a menudo "te ves muy colorida hoy" y yo digo gracias estoy tratando de poner un poco de color en la oficina. Hay algo acerca de la combinación  clásica del color rosa y azul, que me encanta, así que los puse juntos y añadí mi chaqueta negra con un estampado bello de HM para añadir un poco de algo más (se que no necesito nada más) en general, me quedé muy contenta con los resultados de este atuendo.  Y si tenía esa sonrisa cursi todo el día, ya que me hizo tan feliz este look. ¿Qué colores están amando en este momento?

Seeing Rose Gold Polka Dots...

Sometimes I think that I miss my hometown of NJ because of my friends, the food, and the environment, but then I start to think of how cold it gets and the snow and that makes me glad that I love in NC, granted this state can get a little bi-polar with the weather cold one day and hot the next but I love living the country and I have gotten used to the weather, the food, the nice people (people actually say good morning in the grocery store without even knowing you) and my drive to work where I pass farms with cows and horses the views are just beautiful.  For this outfit I paired my sweater from Old Navy which I LOVE!! it is so comfy and warm that it was all I needed for a brisk day in NC.  How is the weather where you are living and how does it affect your style?

Thanks so much for reading and don't forget to enter my 2 giveaways here and here

A veces pienso cuanta falta me hace Nueva Jersey a causa de mis amigos, la comida, y el ambiente, pero luego me pongo a pensar en el frío que hace y la nieve, y el trafico y eso me hace feliz que vivo en Carolina del Norte, aunque les cuento que este estado tiene la tendencia de ser un poco bipolar con el clima un día esta super frío, y el día siguiente hacer calor, pero me encanta vivir en el campo y me he acostumbrado a el clima, la comida, la gente tan amorosa (la gente dicen buenos días en el super sin conocerte), y mis viajes al trabajo donde paso por la granjas con la vacas y caballos los paisajes son simplemente bello. Para este atuendo, me puse mi suéter de Old Navy que me encanta! es muy cómoda y cálida y era todo lo que necesitaba para un día medio fresco en NC. ¿Cómo es el clima donde ustedes viven y cómo afecta a su estilo?

Meet Sunday Champagne! And A Giveaway!!

I want to introduce you all to Sunday Champagneit's an online boutique by fellow blogger Tessa from  The Sassy Writer.  Her boutique is filled with chic clothing and jewelry at affordable prices.  Her pieces can be dressed up down making them more versatile.  Like the shirt that I have on this post, for this look I dressed it up with a pair of animal print pants I added a pink blazer for a pop of color (and also because at work we were doing an event for Breast Cancer awareness).  What I love about this shirt is that the triangle "necklace" is detachable so you have endless possibilities with this piece.  Tessa is giving the opportunity for one of my readers to win a $15 credit to her boutique.

It's All About Conversation Pieces!

I was introduced to Conversation Pieces through one of the blogs that I read.  I immediately fell in love with this little store.  The selection of clothes at Conversation Pieces is exquisite, all the pieces are easy to wear and they will become your go to pieces time and time again. What I love most about this store is the store owner Audrey, she takes the time to answer any questions you may have, she is always asking the customer's opinion of the items to buy for her store.  You can see the dedication to her customers, employees, and pets! I had the opportunity to ask her some questions to find out a little bit more about her and her store.

1. Why did you decide to open your own boutique? 

10 years of twist and turns and heartbreak.    I used to hold international sample sales… hosted events for all the indie denim brands.… I was an off price buyer… I was a liquidator/buyer… I was also a wholesale vintage buyer…  

2. What sets your store apart from all the rest?

hmmm….  I think first and for most, I spend time taking care of employees and customers more than I spend time on creating promotion or marketing opportunities.  We also let our customers/readers into our life through events held either at our home office, or meeting up when I travel.  
I also do not stock furiously. I take time to find clothes that are easy to weargreat to travel withand are your go-to pieces over and over again. They must last a few seasonswear wellfeel good and are affordablelow maintenance and practical. I try my best to ensure that every piece from Conversation Pieces is something that you will reach for in your closet time and time again.

3. What do you like most about what you do?

I get to be me EVERY DAY!

4. How do you describe your personal style?

Comfortable and chic.

5. Besides owning a store, I see you have a blog about cooking/recipes, what made you want to blog about that?
"Our blog is about happy days with simple things... bright, happy, healthy recipes using easily accessible ingredients because pretty food (not necessarily expensive meals) makes a happier person.  Our daily adventures encourage care for ourselves and those around us, in big and small ways."

By the answers to these questions and by reading more about her story here you can see that Audrey is a very humble and caring person.  She is always willing to lend a hand, plus she is always whipping up something yummy in the kitchen.  I know that you will fall in love with Conversation Pieces, Audrey and her adorable pets.  

Audrey is so wonderful she she offered to give us all free shipping with the code FallinloveFreeShip.  and who doesn't love free shipping.

Here Comes The BOOM! and a GIVEAWAY!

So I am sure by now you have all heard of the most coveted shirt from Target.  This sweater has been everywhere and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one when I went to target a couple weeks ago (I was actually surprised that I was able to find one I guess living in the south has its perks) I styled it with my track pant for a chic look.  I absolutely love this sweater its so warm and cozy yet it is so stylish. So on another trip to another Target I was looking for a mini satchel and found that they had so many Boom sweaters I was surprised I was going to purchase one to do a giveaway but by the time I went back they were all out, so to make up for that I am going to do a Target gift card giveaway! You can enter below!
Me imagino que ya ustedes han oído hablar de el sueter más codiciado de Target. Este suéter ha estado en todas partes y yo tuve la suerte de tener encontrar una cuando fui de compras hace un par de semanas atras (yo estaba realmente sorprendida de que tuve la suerte de encontrar una, supongo que vivir en el sur tiene sus ventajas) para este atuendo me puse el suéter con mis pantalones de pista para un look chic. Me encanta este suéter es tan cálido y acogedor, sin embargo, es tan fubuloso. Así que hace par de semanas atras fui a Target tratando de conseguir una cartera y encontré que tenían muchos de estos suéters y me sorprendió bastante me dio la idea de hacer un sorteo para uno, pero cuando fui a comprarlo ya no habian mas, Asi que para recompensar esto voy hacer un sorteo de un gift card para Target regalo!
