Shirt- Ralph Lauren | Slacks- H&M | Shoes- Steve Madden | Coat- via Victoria's Secret |Bag - Tory Burch | Bracelet - Poshlocket | Necklace- Betsey Johnson |

Well I hope everyone that celebrated Christmas had a wonderful time! I for one cannot believe Christmas came and went in a blink of an eye! where did it go?! 

 Since I am Mexican, our tradition is to celebrate on Christmas Eve and not Christmas day. My day consisted of washing and grooming my three little dogs ( actually my sister's and I's dogs) I do a pretty good job of leaving them nice and fluffy ( wish I could have taken a picture of all of them - as the past few days have been rainy , they managed to ruin their groomed hair -_-). The rest of the day was just cooking and eating and eating. This year my mom made mole... which is my all time favorite food. So I had seconds and thirds and fourths. At night we all went to church and when we got home ate again. 

Late Merry Christmas to everyone. XO-!! 

 Hope you like it!, Love it!

Wish list

Friday, December 14, 2012

So Christmas is right around the corner !-And I thought it was a perfect time to create a wish list. These are a few things toping my list this year. Some of these I’ve been wishing for a long time… hopefully santa comes around this year! HO HO HO :) 

From the top Left to right |

Monogram Necklace - Who doesn't need this !? truth be told, I've been wanting one for too long! And it reminds me of the classic name necklace Baby spice use to wear back in the days...In a modern revival type of way ( does any one know what I am talking about ?) 

Wool coat- Every girl needs a nice warm coat , I mean are we supposed to freeze? This year I wanted to add a fun color in closet, I really like the almost burgundy color of this red coat. Holiday ready color! 

Snood - I've been eyeballing different types of snoods this season... I've seen some bright colored ones that I feel could go well with neutral coats and jackets. Also, fur ones and some with prints... regardless I want a snood that can keep my neck warm...and doubles as a great accessory !

THE Bag- I capitalize "the" because I've been wanting dreaming drooling over this bag! I'm not big on buying bags , for some reason when ever I go searching for a bag I always decide against it and buy shoes, or something. I usually wear the same bag with almost anything - a small side satchel type. BUT this bag is just dreamy! 

Plaid ruffled top - For the holidays I have been searching for a nice plaid shirt... then I ran into this one. It's plaid, has holiday colors, and has ruffles. What else could I ask for? I love it! I'm already planning outfits for this top. 

Iphone case (ring ring) (soft pattern) - Soooo I'm those type of people that constantly drops their phones... at least twice a day. Recently I had to get my screen replaced - so in the spirit of keeping my phone safe I figured I should get something to cover it up. I'm finding it hard to commit to a case, I really like my phone naked... although I have to admit these little covers are quite cute! 

Naked2- This product has been out in the market for a while now I know, its been at the top of my makeup wish list since it came out. I have the original Naked but I like the new shades in this palette, especially the black ( I have to admit I don't have a black eyeshadow - which is a must for a smokey eye)

 Shirt- Forever21 | Skirt- Forever21 | Shoes- Pink&Pepper | Jewelry- H&M and Forever 21 | Watch- Betsey Johnson 

The weather lately has been very warm- I feel like I keep dressing like it's summer!- there's nothing wrong with it ... But shouldn't there be snow ? It doesn't snow where I live but if I drive 30 minutes I can usually find snow in the mountains...and there hasn't been any snow!

 A reminder that the holidays are finally here are all the beautiful lights adorning everyones homes. Aren't nights during the holidays beautiful ?!  
 I find it hard to believe that the holidays are right around the corner... but they are !! Are you ready?

 Hope you like it!, Love it!

Shirt- Walter Baker | Pants- GUESS | Shoes- KATE | Bracelet - via Nordstrom rack & Poshlocket 

Today I decided to try something new and pair like colors to achieve a monochromatic look. This shade of blue is a new favorite color of mine and decided it would be a perfect color for the look -I think the easiest color to achieve a monochromatic look would be black from head to toe. I broke up the color by layering two necklaces and some neutral pumps. I really like the monochromatic outfit idea - I think I will try to do a red outfit next...maybe.  

Hope you like it!, Love it!

A little fur

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

 Shirt - Lily Water | Pants Level99 | Vest - via TjMaxx | Boots - Betsey Johnson | Sunnies -Marc Jacobs | Watch- Betsey Johnson | Bracelets - studs: Forever21 Jewels: via Tjmaxx Bangle: Alex and Ani |

One of the latest trends I have totally jumped on board with are fur vests... they are every where! I've seen so many fellow bloggers wear fur vest with so many different outfits- they range from hipster, to glam, to girly. I've also seen fur in so many different colors- from pink, to blue, browns and blacks, and creams. The fur adds so much personality I feel. I love how versatile they are and their ability to make a statement  of any outfit.  

How do you feel about fur??

Hope you like it!, Love it!

Rainy days

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Shirt- H&M | Sweater- Zara | Leggings- Forever21 | Boots- Hunter | Bag- Ted Baker | 

Sometimes you can not get enough of a good thing! I love black and white...can't ever go wrong with a classic. I saw a similar combination in a magazine( stripes and spots) and loved the idea. To break up the stripes and the spots I added a ribbon around my neck ... a simple black ribbon can really go a long way( I've also worn this ribbon in my hair) . On rainy days like today I like to incorporate comfort into what I wear - Ill probably end up cuddled up some where eating baked goods. Tis the season to be enjoying and appreciating what we have - Stay Safe, warm and dry! 

Hope you like it!, Love it!

Very Pink

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Shirt- white: H&M , print: Lily Water | Pants- Spoon | Shoes- Steve Madden | Sunnies- Marc by Marc Jacobs | Bracelet- via Nordstroms Rack | 

First and foremost it’s being comfortable in your own skin, then any piece of clothing you put on is just icing on the cake. My favorite thing to wear is PINK! I feel like I buy too much pink, but I can’t help it. I just feel so feminine in pink! I love to mix different tones of pink or sometimes just add small touches. Don’t be afraid to wear tons of color, or to incorporate colorful pieces in your daily dress. Shania twain sings “ men, shoes, short skirt, woah woah oh …. I love being a woman” – being a woman means taking advantage of our femininity. Being a woman is too much fun, why not flaunt who we are? Manifest our personality in what we wear? We wear clothes every day – why not make it special? 

Hope you like it!, Love it!

This year I was very thankful to be home and spend this special day with my friends and family.  Every year is so different … I have learned that change is something that will always happen. Nothing ever stays the same- And that’s the best part of life! Life  is so dynamic and unexpected… full of tears and laughter. We fall, we get up : we make mistakes , we learn; we hate , we love; we start new chapters in our lives. Personally, this year was full of new chapters. Like, this blog! I’m so happy I finally stated it. It’s been a small adventure and I’m so excited to see where it goes.

One of the people I am most thankful for is my boyfriend. I think the last years I've spent with him, I have laughed, smiled, cried the most than I ever have. Our relationship has been a roller coaster and most of it has been long distance ( across the country or across an ocean) . Last Thanksgiving was very special for me/ us. For me it was my first Thanksgiving away from home. And for us, it was the first one together. I really love this guy, he is my rock and I'm forever grateful that God put him in my life.

I also wanted to share a little of my Thanksgiving meal…. (Mainly because this is the first year I tried these recipes). My mom and I made a spicy marinade to cover and cook the turkey in… and it turned out delicious! Wooo!  The interesting thing about our turkey was that we waited last minute to buy a turkey…. literally the night before. When we got to the store they informed us that they were sold out, so we had to wait until this morning to go different stores (yes multiple stores). We visited two stores before finding a turkey. Who knew turkeys were in such high demand?

 Regardless of the run around, we had a turkey on our table. And our dogs even got their piece of turkey! I hope everyone had a delicious meal surrounded by good company! 

Hope you like it!.. Love it !

Happy thanksgiving!
