MY SIGNATURE BUN LOOK WITH A TOUCH OF SELENA

Today is Selena’s Birthday!

Selena Quintanilla LookThis weekend my daughter and I watched the Selena movie.
It’s fantastic to see the effect that her legacy still has on kids these days.

We’ve watched her movie before and also listen to her songs all the time.
For some reason, my daughter was wholly invested in her movie this time, and she cried at the end.

All weekend she kept saying, why did Selena die.
Questions we still ask til this day.

To honor her on her birthday, I wanted to create a look similar to her iconic looks. Read more

MY FIRST SMOKEY-ISH EYE LOOK

It’s no secret that my safe place when it comes to makeup is warm colors.

I have always admired makeup artists and people that create smokey eyes.
Mainly when they use black eye shadow.

Neutrogena #Neverbetter

They say that as a makeup lover, you shouldn’t be scared to experience outside of your comfort zone.
I wish it were a lot easier for me to incorporate more smokey eye looks.

Finally, I decided to give it a try.

I went for it and created a light smokey eye look.

WHAT I WORE FOR WE ALL GROW SUMMIT 2018

#Wellnessday18
It is no secret that a lot of #WeAllGrow Summit attendees were

a bit stressed about what to wear for the event, including my self.

I had a vision of what I wanted to wear.
Although low key, I knew it wasn’t going to work out for me.

Two weeks before the event, I started to look for outfits officially.
You know it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t leave things till the last minute.
I researched online boutiques, amazon, clothing stores, the mall; you name it!

I think what got me a little stressed was the welcoming party on the first night.
Last year’s event was something more chill, so it was easy for me to put an outfit together, this year Neutrogena wanted to go all out with a welcoming carpet party.

I am not really into dresses. I’m short, so I don’t think that they favor me very much.
Plus you know I got lonjas (love handles)

Finally, two days before the event, I was able to put my outfits together.
I wanted to share with you all on this post.

FIVE WAYS TO DEAL WITH SELF-DOUBT

Crystal Cove

We live in a world full of constant pressures.

We often come across the perfect mom, a dedicated wife, an ideal body, a great career, and a great relationship.

Honestly, as much as we try not to compare ourselves, we simply can’t.

We simply can’t help but pressure ourselves with what we “think” we should be doing.

Self-doubt is hard for us to understand, but that we continuously fall for.
I’ve been a victim of this feeling several times.

As we begin to age, not that 28 or 30 is such an old age, we often get pressured about what we should accomplish by a certain age or time frame.
For the most part, we put pressure on ourselves.

For 2018 I am making some beauty resolutions.
Now the big goal is to be able to stick to the resolutions all year long.

You all know I have been dealing with acne all year long.
I must confess I did pretty good creating and maintaining a beauty routine all year long.
Honestly, it was a bit challenging, especially when you’re exhausted, or if you love to sleep like me.

For 2018 I want to improve my beauty routine even more by setting up some resolutions.

It’s no surprise that I love colorful lipsticks.
While strolling through Ross, I came across a package from NYX with some lip glosses.
The package came with 3 Intense Butter Glosses for $6.99.
Now you know I couldn’t pass this fantastic offer. Usually, each lipstick is around that price for just one.

I was instantly captivated by a specific shade on the package.
I’m sure you know by now how much I luffffff bright lipsticks.

THINGS I WANT TO TEACH MY DAUGHTER ABOUT BEING STRONG

THINGS I WANT TO TEACH MY DAUGHTER ABOUT BEING STRONG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Being strong is a difficult subject to discuss.
2017 was the year where being too strong finally bit me on the tail.
2018 I want to focus a little more and experience vulnerability.
Confession, I can’t say vulnerability in real life lol.

I’ve discussed before how my daughter experiences sensitivity a lot more than I do.
For the past few years, I’ve had the wrong concept when it came to be strong.
With a little time, I was able to gather some ideas on what to teach my daughter about being strong.

MY WORD FOR 2018

Hello, 2018!

For this year, I wanted to start my first 2018 blog post with something different.
For the first time, I am choosing a word for 2018.

GROW

verb
(of a living thing) undergo natural development by increasing in size and changing physically; progress to maturity.

For the past few years, I’ve been afraid to grow.
I’ve been making up tons of excuses.
I have been sitting in my comfort zone for too long, way too long, I would say.
I’ve wanted to learn more or do different things.

I feel like my brain is not capable of learning more than what I know, which is dumb, I know.

WEEKEND GET AWAY WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK

San Antonio Riverwalk

Weekend getaways are my absolute favorite!
I suffer from wanderlust, so there are times where I will just have this urge to get up and leave somewhere.
Now my brokenness doesn’t allow me to do it as much as I would like, but I do try to do it as often as I can.

Every so often, we all need to get away without a plan. Vacations are fantastic, but honestly, they are stressful to plan, it can take months to plan and save.

Our financial situation doesn’t allow us just to get up and leave and getaway all the time. Yet even going to a small town near your area gives you renewed energy.
I am a true believer that it’s good for our minds to be in a different environment.

MAKEUP LOOK FOR ANY THANKSGIVING GET TOGETHER

Thanksgiving make up look

We are officially so close to the end of the year.

How did this happen?

We are only a few days away from Thanksgiving, which means we get to celebrate togetherness with our loved ones.
Also, this holiday calls for a good makeup look to create to sit at the sala (the living room) ????

I grew up in Mexico, so honestly, we don’t celebrate the day so much as people that are born in the US.

Of course, I have to establish some of the US cultures into my daughter’s life and celebrate Thanksgiving, so we celebrate small.

I must also confess I don’t like Turkey!
