This NY and Company dress from the Eva Mendes collection is the perfect summer to fall transition piece. The color, soft fabric, pockets and lady like length make it so flattering. I can't even begin to tell you how many compliments I got on this dress when I wore it over the weekend. If you are looking for fall transition pieces, this little number is a must. You're welcome!

Life Lately

Wednesday, August 19, 2015


I don't usually write posts like this one, but it’s a good way to check in and record everyday life. Here it is, if you would like to read...

Lately, I have been:

Watching The Good Wife. Let’s talk about Peter Florrick (Chris Noth)for a second, how good looking is he?! Here is a photo of Chris Noth when he was younger. He has aged so well.

Reading The Book Thief and The Really Bad Girls of theBible. I am equally obsessed with these books. The Book Thief is a novel about death and has so many amazing hidden messages, while the Really Bad Girls of the Bible relates everyday life to the bible stories of some extraordinary women whose lives where changed by Christ. A must read if you are into happy endings!

Eating rice pudding and chicken breast. Can we take a moment to talk about chicken breast. Those who know me are aware of my love and hate relationship with meat. I was a vegetarian and self acclaimed animals activist for several years and sometimes find myself having a hard time enjoying meat. Lately, I have been craving it more and enjoying it more. This is a good thing, considering chicken is a great source of protein and I need to increase my intake.

Wearing these pants, none stop. They are so comfortable I have had them in rotation with basic summer tops and statement necklaces.

Looking for things to do during the weekend. I have difficulty making time to do fun activities due to my hectic schedule, but I am trying to fit in as many fun activities as possible before summer ends. A couple of weeks ago, my sister and I took the Newport boat ride around the harbor, where I took this beautiful photo.

Thinking about how merciful God has been to me. Sometimes I get anxious about all my responsibilities and about the big doors God has opened for me, but then I remember how faithful He has been in the past. His faithfulness in the past is a prophecy of his continued help and providence in the future.

Planning my trip for Puerto Rico next month and my birthday week. Hello, 26! (insert excited)

Using this Benefit Pore Minimizing balm. Obsessed doesn’t begin to describe how I feel about it. My make up looks smoother and lasts longer.

Loving these Valentino shoes, and considering them as a birthday present, from me to me.

That 70s Look

Sunday, August 16, 2015

Shirt: Zara
Pants: Zara
Shoes: Aldo Shoes


I wore this look to visit New York City over the weekend. These Zara pants are so comfy I could sleep in them. I decided to dress them down with a striped shirt, red lips, and wedges.

My friend and I left to NY on Saturday, we stopped in CT for brunch where we found this colorful wall.



We stayed at the Tarry-town House State. The hotel has the most beautiful gardens. Our stay consisted of reading by the pool, eating, and sleeping. It was a blessing to have such a peaceful weekend... 

Isaiah 26:3 reminds us where our peace comes from:


“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

We ventured to Irvington for dinner. We enjoyed sushi at Hura Hana, which is a small family owned sushi restaurant. I love supporting family owned restaurants, and this one did not disappoint. 




Hair Care

Thursday, July 9, 2015


Let's talk about hair care. I have been following the same routine for the past year, and it has worked miracles and restored my hair. If you are interested in trying it out, you will need three simple ingredients that are already in your kitchen:

1) Apple cider vinegar.
2) Baking soda.
3) Coconut oil.

I have been a coconut oil addict for the past couple of years. I use it to remove my make up, to moist my body at the sauna, and as a hair mask.

Every other week, I apply coconut oil on my dry hair, and leave it in for 30 minutes. When it's time to wash off, I mix the shampoo with a cup of apple cider vinegar and three table spoons of baking soda. The apple cider vinegar, and baking soda do a great job getting rid of any build up you might have accumulated by applying spray or any other hair products.

Is there a routine you follow? Any true and tried DYI recipes?
