SAN FRANCISCO IN 4 HOURS


Why is it that I can’t find anyone to adopt my daughter and I in California?
I mean is not like we don’t know our way around anyways.

We were supposed to be in California for a wedding over in Visalia CA.
Once we were in town, which was very similar to Texas I looked up major cities around us.

Fresno was the closest major city but I also noticed that San Francisco was about 3 and half hours away.

NEW YORK 2018

Hola!!

Long time no see huh?! I know.

Blame Mercury Retrograde…

Back in August I traveled to New York City for the very first time in my life.

New York City
The Big Apple was on my to do list for sure, but I never felt that OMG feeling in my stomach to go visit. Am I making any sense?

Well I hope I do.

I arrived late to New York after my flight was delayed for 3 hrs.

I was scared, I’m not going to lie. You know me, I’m always acting strong.
On the ride to my hotel I couldn’t concentrate on what my Lyft driver was telling me, (I had a very, very talkative driver) I was so focused on seeing everything around me. Read more

BIRTHDAY TRIP 2018 WITH MAZDA

Disney world 2018

Our Birthday was back in April.

It’s no secret that instead of planning parties (which in my opinion parties are a waste of dinero)

I would rather Jailah have an experience that she will always remember.

She’s only had two actual birthday parties, her first birthday and when she turned 7.

Instead we do birthday trips.

We usually take our birthday trip during the same month as out birthdays, but this year we decided to wait a little longer.

Our destination: Disney World!

We’ve been to Disneyland 3 times .

For most of our trips of we head over to the west coast, California specifically, which we love and can never get enough of.

This year we decided to switch it up and head over to the east coast, give Florida a try, and visit Disney World.

MY FIRST SMOKEY-ISH EYE LOOK

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

I have always admire make up artist and people that create smokey eyes.
Specially when they use black eye shadow.

Neutrogena #Neverbetter

They say that as a make up lover you shouldn’t be scared to experience outside of your comfort zone.
I wish it was 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 officially look for outfits.
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 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 carpet welcoming 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.
Which I wanted to share with you all on this post.

FIVE WAYS TO DEAL WITH SELF-DOUBT

We live in a world full of constant pressures.

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

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

Crystal Cove

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

Self-doubt is something that is hard for us to understand, but that we constantly 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 frames.
For the most part we put the pressure on ourselves.

FIVE BEAUTY RESOLUTIONS I’M MAKING FOR 2018

Beauty Resolutions 2018
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.

BERRY STRUDEL

NYX Berry Strudel

It’s no surprise that I love colorful lipsticks.

The package came with 3 Intense Butter Glosses for $6.99.
Now you know I couldn’t pass this amazing offer, usually each lipstick is around that price for just one.

I was instantly captivated to 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 STRONGBeing 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 a I do.
For the past few years, I’ve had the wrong concept when it came to being strong.
With a little time I was able to gather some ideas on what to teach my daughter about being strong.
