Favorite Beauty Masks At The Moment

Ever since I passed the age of 21 (which is not too long ago!) I obsess over taking care of my skin probably more than I should. Nah, who am I kidding, one should always be obsessed with their skin! Honestly though, if your base is healthy (skin) then either a. your skin will be so bomb you might want to opt for zero makeup, or b. your makeup beat will be absolutely stunning and flawless! I choose both.

Acne has always been a battle for me and I try to focus my skincare ventures on fighting that issue. Now, in my experience, many anti acne products result in over drying of the skin. Overly dry skin is something you do not want, or at least I run away from. I hate the tight feeling as well as the itchy feeling. If you follow my journey through instagram (which you totally should! ... please?) you will always see me trying a new mask or just a mask that I love. One might say "ok, you mask too much!" but in reality, when I mask I tend to spot treat. What that is - is me simply applying the mask to the area where it is focused to tackle or at least advertised to tackle and where I want it to work. I will be showing and talking a little bit about my go to face masks and how I normally use them. Now, shall we?

Things I Have Learned In My 20's: Updated List

If you may recall a couple posts down to my blog post titled "Styling Camo + 6 Things My 20's Have Taught me" you might have read my little list on what I have learned along the way.. Well I am here to let you guys in on the tea of a couple other things I have learned! Some are pretty depressing if I must say but others are so extremely happy! Looks like I come bearing gifts today because I also have a cute little #ootd to share with you guys! This one was so much fun to style and shop for!


Miami Tropical Vibes | DREAMER X SEPHORA POP UP EVENT




Hello, hello!

Long time no talk! It's summer time in Miami and that calls for TROPICAL AF outfits! Lately I have been in the mood for colorful and very loud outfits. That means that I am all in for prints, neons and maybe both combined? Haha! After all... it is Miami and if any city knows about loud colors in clothes it is Miami! Spending money on tropical-ish outfits here is cool because it is something you can technically wear all year long (uh yes, all year. I have seen people go to the beach on Christmas Day!)

Please keep in mind that I will always try to list the exact same look but in the event that the store no longer offers the look I will give you guys other alternatives!

But wait, you still cant find that you need? Message/email/write to me on my instagram and I will help you style the look to accommodate your needs!




One of Many Ways to Wear Denim! | #DIY


Hi Guys!

I know for a fact you will be seeing me in a lot of denim this spring and summer! Feel free to ignore me all spring and summer if you aren’t a denim fan lol.  I thought I’d share with you guys a little DIY-ish thing I did with this look. Let’s just say I work well under pressure and I don’t know what it’s like to ever be fully prepared whether it’s hours or days or months ahead! Now, not to say that is is necessarily a bad thing. Typically when I shoot on weekends, I pick my look in less than one hour. Here is why: I don't know if I will wake up bloated and the cute little outfit I had planned will no longer work! I rather feel things as they come and go with the flow! Anyone else? Let me further explain...


See, I am just one of those people who can go up on stage and just start talking or improvise for things on the spot. Funny story: my friend Cari bought me the cutest planner from VALFRE for Christmas and I have yet to use it. It is by far the coolest planner ever and she always gives me crap for not using it how I should. I am not one to write down every single thing, partly because I am pretty sure I am developing carpel tunnel (or something of that realm). I am good with memorizing which I know I shouldn’t really rely on. Ok, I feel like I got a little sidetracked… sorry! Maybe I should be filming videos instead of writing lol. Writing just makes me feel really relaxed. Keep reading for the look! 

LIFE IS JUST AN EXPLOSION OF COLORS, BE BOLD, BABY!


Living in Miami I have seen my fair share of trends. As a blogger I feel that it is my duty to go out there, research, and bring you back newfound info! Now, I am not saying that my look is something that hasn’t been done before but what I am trying to say is that I went out there and put together a look that you guys have yet to see me in. This summer I am looking to play more with bold colors and patterns. I’m trying to step out of the box a whole lot more.

Wood Accessories? Yup! They're a thing! | Summer Must Have!

Hi Guys!

Looks like we are back to sunny skies and 80 degree weather in Miami. For the last couple of weeks we've been having cold fronts one day and hot weather the next, oddest thing! Anyway, warm weather means cute spring/summer looks! I wanted to share with you all the newest accessory to hit my wardrobe. 

Now, before we get to this look, I wanted to thank JORD for sending me my new beauty. Please keep in mind that all opinions are my own and I would not stand with a brand I did not personally like or believe in. Now, back to my look! I went ahead and selected something different than what I normally own or wear around my wrist. I like to wear a lot of gold small watches just because they are very classy looking and don't over power my small wrist. When I saw that JORD carried that similar style I automatically knew I had to have it! Please keep reading, there's a fun little giveaway at the end of this post!
