All weekend she kept saying, why did Selena died.
A questions we still ask til this day.

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

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!

#Neverbetter Neutrogena

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.
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 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 STRONG

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.

MY WORD FOR 2018

Hello 2018!

For this year I wanted to start my first 2018 blog post with something different.
This is 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 been wanting 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

Weekend getaway’s are my 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 this as much as I would like.
But I do try to do it as often as I can.

San Antonio Riverwalk

Every so often we all need to get away without a plan.
Vacations are awesome, but honestly they are stressful to plan.
Not to mention it can take months to plan and save for.

Our financial situations don’t allow us to just get up and leave and get away all the time.
Yet even going to a small town near your area gives you renewed energy.

It’s good for our minds to be in a different environment.

MAKE UP LOOK FOR ANY THANKSGIVING GET TOGETHER

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 loves ones.
Also this holiday calls for a good make up look to create.

I grew up in Mexico, so honestly we really 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 culture into my daughter’s life and celebrate Thanksgiving, so we celebrate small.

Not to mention I do not like turkey.
