Trendy Thursday LinkUP + Belted Shirt Dress for a Day in City

Hi guys! Easter is already this weekend, which means we are also closer to the end of April… Wow time is going by so fast. Before signing off for the weekend, I wanted to share this super fun shirt dress that I picked up while doing a round of returns and exchanges. Funny, huh? I’m supposed to return and exchange but end up bringing new items home. No wonder my husband teases me by saying, “you must have had another credit for what you just bought!” 🙂

So, this dress comes in two colors; this olive tone and black. I love that it has ruffles at the sleeves, it’s such a feminine touch. The fact that it ties in the front is perfect because it helps accentuate the waist. I paired this darling dress with the wedges I bought for $20 and shared on my last post. 🙂 I don’t know about you but I love finding dupes and these are so similar to the ones here that I felt like I hit the jackpot! 😛 The fun bagI also picked up while running my errands and I don’t regret it because I think it will be the perfect accessory to wear through summer. I’m linking all items below as always! 😉

Se acerca la Pascua, lo que quiere decir que ya casi se acaba el mes de abril… Que rápido se está pasando el tiempo! Antes de desconectarme y disfrutar del fin de semana quise compartir con ustedes este vestido. El cual compre mientras hacía unas devoluciones, Lo cual me parece gracioso porque en lugar de hacer mis devoluciones, quede comprando más cosas. Por esto es que mi esposo siempre me pregunta si he comprado algo con algún crédito que tenía, jajajaja. 🙂

Pues este vestido está disponible en dos colores, en este tono oliva y en negro. Me encanto el detalle de los volantes en las mangas. Al igual que se amarra a las cintura. Decidí usarlo con la sandalias que compré por $20 y compartir en mi post anterior. No sé ustedes, pero siento como si gano la lotería cuando encuentro opciones parecidas a precios más económicos. El bolso me pareció perfecto por que puedo usarlo desde ahora hasta el verano. Abajo les dejo el enlace a cada pieza para que compren lo que quieran! 😉

How the Bold Flavors of Aussie Crème Help Me Relax

This post is sponsored by Wallaby Yogurt but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

What helps you slow down? As a busy mom who is often on the go, I have had to find ways to slow down, unwind and relax. While, I have a few ways to get to a point of relaxation, like putting on my favorite face mask or listening to music! Indulging on my favorite treat is also one of them. The Wallaby Organic Aussie Crème, which I pick up on my grocery trips to Sprouts Farmers Market, has become my favorite way to take a minute to slow down and relax!

 

The New Aussie Crème is available in three flavors; Spiced Peach, Strawberry Red Wine and Caramelized Pineapple. Not only are these flavors unique but they’re also delicious. My favorite flavor is the Strawberry Red Wine. There’s something about the flavor that I just love, it is so bold and its creamy texture is perfection!

Another reason why I enjoy the Strawberry Red Wine Wallaby Organic Aussie Crème is that it is made with organic milk and premium organic ingredients. The yogurts are also made gluten-free and Kosher. Which makes them a winner in my book!

So often, I’m focused on all the members of my family, all the way from our dog to my husband, that I forget to pause and take a break. When I feel that alone time is much needed, I just find a cozy spot on the couch and enjoy my Wallaby Organic Aussie Crème. 🙂

If you’re like me and love having a delicious treat to help you unwind, make sure to try all three flavors of Aussie Crème at your nearest Sprouts Farmers Market! These bold and delicious flavors are sure to become your favorite too.

I’m curious to know what helps you slow down and relax! Let me know below in the comments below!

Beauty: CHI Paint Party Flat Iron

This flat iron was gifted to me for this review but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

You guys, I’m so excited to share my newest obsession in the hair care department with you! If you’ve been following for a while, you know that I love my CHI Haircare Tools. When I learned that CHI Haircare’s Spring 2019 Hair Tool Launched with 5 new options, I couldn’t wait to check it out. The one pictured here is the new CHI Paint Party 1″ Flat Iron, which has been my go-to so far this spring! Not only do I love the fun design but also the fact that it brings a gorgeous gold fanny pack, the perfect accessory for upcoming travel. Plus, it is now available at JCPenney, in stores and online. 😉

My love for CHI has a lot to do with the fact that one tool can be used to create multiple hairstyles, from silky smooth strand to curls or waves. While straightening hair, it works to reduce frizz which is a big deal in humid Houston. 😛 Other features that make me a fan are its six heat settings, automatic shut off and 11 feet cord.

Since not everyone has the same hair type, I think it’s important for hair tools to be have option that are inclusive of all hair types. Take my hair for example, while most times I use a medium heat setting; I like having the option to use a lower setting near my face, ears and neck.

While, the automatic shut off has come in handy many times already. Picture yourself doing your hair before dashing out the door because you’re running late; and forgetting to turn off the flat iron… Then you come home to realize that the flat iron has been on all day, yikes. The 11 feet cord is just genius because it allows you to move around!

Trendy Thursday LinkUP + Paper Bag Jeans Trend

Paperbag pants are the latest trend and one that I could totally get behind. 🙂 I picked up this pair recently and I’m glad I decided to buy them because they sold out within days. Don’t worry, I have found some very similar pairs (even a pair of shorts) and I am linking them all below! I think this paperbag waist is just perfect and quite the feminine touch. 🙂

I thought I’d pair the jeans with a OTS top, since it is one of my favorite styles once the weather warms up. I got this top last year but managed to find a few similar tops for you to check out and shop as well. The wedges were a no brainer because espadrilles are my go-to this season. This pair is the dupe (as just $20) to the Sannibel Platform Wedge Sandal which costs $75. I have to admit that Walmart is definitely stepping up their game in the style department; I’ve found some great styles there lately.

Los pantalones de cintura de bolsa de papel son mi tendencia favorita esta temporada. Estos pantalones los compré recién, Y me alegro de haberlo hecho porque días después se agotaron. No se preocupen encontré varios muy similares y el enlace a cada uno! 😉 Me parecen tan femenino este estilo.

Pensé que se verían perfectos con esta blusa a los hombros. Este tipo de blusa es mi favorito cuando se acerca la temporada de primavera. Aunque esta blusa no es nueva, pude conseguir varias similares! 🙂 En cuanto a las sandalias, solo cuestan $20 y son muy parecidas a las Treasure and Bond de Nordstrom que cuestan $79; o sea que son una súper oferta ya que son muy parecidas.

Trendy Thursday LinkUP + Easter Lace Dress to Wear Now and Later

It’s April you guys! I can hardly believe it. I’m so excited for this month because it’s a special one. Not just because of Easter and Jesus’ resurrection but also because it’s my littlest’s birthday. This year she will be FOUR and I wonder where time has gone. I mean she could technically go to school this fall (insert shocked emoji)!! Which I’m somewhat on the fence about but that’s an entirely different post. While, I’m still on planning mode, I hope to share a bit on whatever we do to celebrate her. Now, about today’s look… This gorgeous lace dress that comes in 7 colors and is under $80, I thought was perfect for Easter and well, Spring! Don’t you agree?! 🙂

In an effort to not take away from the dress, I decided to keep accessories to a minimum, only wearing statement earrings. The nude heeled sandal are my favorite because they go with everything. If you don’t have a pair of neutral shoes, you need a pair asap! I picked the bamboo bag to add a hint of spring/summer. Though a neutral clutch could also be an option. I have linked this exact dress – though in different colors – as this particular color is no longer available. You will also find similar lace options also from H&M.

Ya llegó April y todavía no lo creo. Aunque estoy Super contenta porque este mes es muy especial. No sólo por la resurrección de Jesucristo, pero también porque cumple mi pequeñita. Este año tendrá CUATRO años y me pregunto cómo pasó el tiempo tan rápido. O sea ya podría empezar la escuela este otoño. Y aunque todavía no decido si va a entrar a la escuelita este año, quizás comparta con ustedes mi decisión en otro momento. Aún estoy planeando que hacer para su cumpleaños pero espero compartir con ustedes lo que decidamos hacer para celebrarla. Y en cuanto al Look de hoy, pues es un vestido de encaje disponible en siete colores y con un costo de menos de $80. El que además me pareció perfecto para pascua y pues la temporada de primavera!

Quise que el traje fuera El enfoque del Look y por eso decidí usar accesorios mínimos, como estos aretes que son unos de mis favoritos. Además utilices sandalias de tacón en un color neutral, Las cuales me parecen perfectas porque la verdad que lucen con todo. Si no tienes un par de zapatos neutrales en tu clóset, lo necesitas pero es ya!! El bolsa de bambú la elegí por qué quería darle un tono de primavera/verano al look. Aunque creo que de vería divino el vestido con otra bolsa neutral. Aquí les dejo el enlace para el vestido, aunque esté color ya no está disponible. Y otros estilos de vestidos de encaje también de H&M.

How to Work with Brands as a New Bloggers

How to Work with Brands as a New Bloggers

As you may know, I celebrated two years of blogging late last year. Because I’m asked about blogging and working with brands on a regular basis, I wanted to share some tips for new bloggers, especially on sponsored posts.

Let me start by saying that there is no formula, it’s good old trial and error. You have to figure out what works for you. Blogging takes a lot of time, research, and planning! To me, it is all worth it; especially since I’m a naturally creative soul! I went to school for Marketing + Communications, I even had a certain visual for my career. When my visual didn’t turn out as planned, I found my purpose through blogging. This is why I feel that blogging is worth everything I’ve put into it.

I won’t deny that  finding the right balance between being a mom, wife and blogger can be a bit hard. And will say this, blogging is not for the faint of heart! But it is absolutely worth it!

If you’re thinking about becoming a blogger or have just started blogging, I think this post will be helpful. No, I don’t have all the answers but I think it’s important to share my experience as a blogger for others who are coming after me. My top three points of advice to new bloggers are these:
