Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Five Colors I’m Loving for Fall

While Fall weather is practically non-existent here… There are a few trends and colors that I am loving for the change in season. Rust Orange is one of them! And truly one of the most perfect colors for fall – in my opinion. This particular bodysuit is from Lulus and while it quickly sold out, I just saw that it was restocked last night. So, if you like it, run and grab it before it’s gone again. Mauve, a softer color is also quickly becoming a favorite. Last week I shared a Mauve blouse, another Lulu’s find and color that I am totally crushing on. The link to the blouse is below, that way you can check it out.

Other colors Im loving for fall are deep reds, classic creams and yellows, which you will see a bit of around here and on Instagram. I’m loving also loving snakeskin…. a trend that I was happy to stand behind last year. And glad that is back this year. This pair I’ve had since last fall but they’re so good and on-trend that I had to bring them out again. For you, I am linking a few similar options that I’ve rounded up from around the web. 😉

My Favorite Grilling Recipe: BBQ Chicken Sandwiches with Pioneer Woman BBQ Sauces

This post is sponsored by The Kraft Heinz Company. All comments and opinions are my own. 

GRILLING is one of our favorite things to do! From the time Summer begins all the way until the seasons change to Fall we find time to cook our favorites on the grill. Learning about the new Pioneer Woman BBQ sauces at H-E-B was just the excuse I needed to get the hubby to agree to a small tailgating gathering. 🙂 But because he loves to grill, I didn’t really need to twist his arm too much! 😉 He’s such a foodie and loves trying out the latest products too. And the three new Pioneer Woman BBQ Sauce flavors were a must on our list.

Tailgating Tip: H-E-B paper bags are great for carrying all your tailgate essentials.

He has lived in Texas his whole life and since moving here with him, I’ve learned to love BBQ. And I feel that the key to a good BBQ is the sauce. Let me tell that the Pioneer Woman trio does not disappoint. Each one is packed with flavor… Take the Frontier BBQ Sauce variety for example, it has the perfect amount of heat. Because I love flavors with a kick, this is the one I used for today’s recipe. Everyone LOVED the flavor it brought to the chicken sandwiches. I have also tried the other two varieties. The Apple Brown Sugar BBQ sauce has just the right amount of sweetness with chunks of tart apples. While the Peach Whiskey BBQ sauce is such a perfect combination, I love the slight whiskey flavor and could use it on everything, even to make a delicious dip. 🙂

Motherhood, Latina Health and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Did you know that September is Latina Health Awareness Month as well as National Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness Month?! Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is the most common cause of female infertility. While I haven’t experienced infertility first hand, that’s not to say I didn’t experience difficulties with my pregnancies. Some of which had me reflecting on whether PCOS is a condition I was at risk of having. Especially since 50% of women with PCOS don’t even know that they have the disorder even though it is a common condition and seen frequently in Latin American women. Luckily, CCRM (Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine) can help women who are experiencing infertility due to PCOS.

Nayelli, our first daughter, was a complete surprise. My pregnancy was normal but I particularly remember that she was breached and having to go through a procedure to get her into position. I honestly think I took for granted the difficulties that could come when planning a pregnancy. Because four years later my husband and I decided to try for a second baby—a pregnancy that didn’t come so easily. It took a few months to conceive and while we decided not to look into it, I’ve always wondered what caused the delay? After learning about PCOS and the prevalence of the disorder in Latina women, I can’t help but wonder if it could have resulted in us taking months to get pregnant. Especially because PCOS means that the body goes through anovulation (not regularly releasing an egg).

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Crushing on Mauve and Lulu’s Styles

Happy Thursday! I have to say that even though I’m as SAHM, I am SO glad we are closer to the weekend… Anyone else? 🙋🏽‍♀️ I’ve been dying to share some goodies that I got from Lulus with you. This gorgeous surplice mauve blouse is one of them. I am absolutely crushing on this color and think it’s perfect for fall, even though it’s on a lighter color scheme. 😃 Quite honestly, I feel that you could probably wear this one through the seasons. I paired it with one of my favorite pair of jeans, but I think it would also go perfectly with a denim skirt, black skinnies or even white pants, if you’re the type to wear white after Labor Day. 😛

The snakeskin sandals are also from Lulus and because the weather here allows for sandals nearly year round, I had to add them to my list of must-haves. So don’t be shocked if you see them here more than once. Below I am sharing a few other picks from my recent haul. The rest of the items in my look are also linked below. Take a look and decide what you want to buy. 😃

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + My Favorite Band Graphic Tee

Graphic Tees are one of my favorites to collect; along with sunglasses, watches and earrings. 😜 On a serious note though, I love a good graphic tee because they are so easy to wear. You can just kind of throw one on and go #momwin! The best part is that they are super versatile, you can dress them up or down. Yes! I’m talking sneakers to heels.

The latest addition to my collection of graphic tees is this Guns N Roses tee. I  have to say that it runs small, so sizing up is highly recommended. But it is worth buying because I have already styled it so many different ways – which I failed to capture on camera. But I may re-wear a few just to share them with you throughout my social profiles. I am linking a handful of band graphic tees that I’ve rounded up too. So make sure to take a peek in case something catches your eye. 😉

Amo las camisetas con diseños gráficos. Son una de mis piezas favoritas para coleccionar, entre lentes de sol, relojes y aretes.😜 Hablando en serio me parece que son Super fáciles de lucir. Simplemente te pones una y ya puedes salir sin tanto lío! Son super versátiles, las puedes vestir con tenis o tacones!

Esta camiseta de Guns N Roses es la más recién adición a mi collection de camisetas. Es buena idea comprarla en una talla más grande por que queda un poco chica. Pero me la he puesto tantas veces que no me arrepiento de comprarla. Abajo les dejo el enlace a otras camisetas de banda de rock.

A Refreshing Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Cocktail with Santa Cruz Organic

This post is sponsored by Santa Cruz Organic but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Y’all, school has started – at least for the girls… But I am trying to hang on to summer for as long as I can. So today, I wanted to share a quick, delicious and refreshing cocktail recipe made with Santa Cruz Organic Lemonades. A brand that after trying, quickly made it to my list of favorites. I am always trying out new brands, and love stumbling upon those that are made with high quality ingredients. Because Santa Cruz Organic is passionate about offering only the best natural and organic foods, I knew it would make a great ingredient for this cocktail.

When it comes to flavors, Santa Cruz Organic Lemonades offers a variety; like Blueberry, Mango and Strawberry. They also offer a range of other products of equally delicious flavors like Santa Cruz Mango Fruit Spread, Santa Cruz Organic Ginger Juice and Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Creamy Peanut Butter. All of these are made with Certified Organic and Non-GMO ingredients and processes. Which as a consumer offers me with all the peace of mind I could ask for from a brand.

When creating a recipe, I think it’s of high importance to use pure ingredients and this delicious lemonade offers just that. That’s why using Santa Cruz Organic Strawberry Lemonade was a no-brainer; it’s a flavorful ingredient that you feel great about adding in. 😉 Now, let’s get started on the recipe…

Making the Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Cocktail 

For this recipe you will only need two ingredients! That’s right, only two. Why? Because I believe that simple recipes are sometimes the most fun to make and enjoy with others. To make this Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Cocktail, you will need glasses, ice, Santa Cruz Organic Strawberry Lemonade and Vodka of choice. You will make the cocktail by adding a few ice cubes to a glass, then pouring 6-8 oz. of lemonade over the ice and adding about 1.5 oz of Vodka.
