They are actually sold out currently, but if you search striped pants, you will find similar ones, here.  They have side pockets and are true to size. I had two looks in mind and decided to dress them down in a cute t-shirt and sandals.

Valentine's Day OOTD!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!! Today is such a cliche day of celebrating love but it shouldn't just be focused on one day. 

Hubby and I will be celebrating Valentine's Day this weekend and as you all know, I have planned a cute outfit for this day. Of course, I"m not expecting much, for us it's about getting a couple hours to ourselves, to either go to our favorite local brewery or just getting a quick bite to eat. We cherish that alone time, which it's hard to get sometimes. 

So I received this dress from Romwe.com and at first, I was excited to try because I knew it was coming, but when it arrived, I reconsidered it. It has such a nice relaxed fit from the waist down, but on top, it was a little too tight for my liking. Either way, I made it work and paired it with some heels! 


It was definitely an "Expectation Vs. Reality" moment

 

Vs. 

Outfit details: 
Maxi Dress, in black of course with a sexy split on one side with some gold heels from GS Love. The dress is body hugging which is totally not me, but I made it work. Wearing a Size Medium just in case anyone was wondering.

Until next time...... Xoxo

Reviews.com

Happy Tuesday! 

I wanted to share a recent website I discovered. You know when you're looking for a product and you are trying to figure out if the product works for you or just any tips and tricks? 

Well, I came across this website, reviews.com. I was looking for a product and reading the reviews really helped me decide if I needed the product or not. They go in depth as providing the top picks out there, how to use the product/item and what will work for you. 



They have anything from reviewing headphones to reviewing the best nail clippers. Can you believe that? Go figure! 

It's a really useful and handy website, trust me. You can check out here

Until next time............ Xoxo

That summer feeling, in February

Living in California, we are fortunate to have great weather and it always feels like summer even during our "Winter" season. This past weekend was definitely the case, it was feeling like summer with high 80s temperature all over Southern California. 

That didn't stop me from wearing this cute outfit. At first, as I was picking out the pieces and creating the "LOOK", I was so hesitant to wear it and photograph this outfit on me because I'm not the skinny model on Instagram. I'm a mom of three and have always struggled with my weight. I didn't want to be judged but then I just said, "You know what, who cares." I workout 4-5 times a week and always watch what I eat, so let's show off what I've been working on and wear it with confidence. You know that's my motto!!! 

Details: 
Coat: Shein.com - Waterfall collar pocket front wrap coat in Medium (Keep in mind to always read the material type. I wear Large but went a size down because I knew it wasn't going to lose on me)
Top: Active Sportsbra 
Jeans: Black Ripped Jeans from Cello Jeans
Heels: Black Stilettos from G Stage 

Check out the post on my Instagram! 
Let me know if you have any outfit ideas for me or any suggestions. Happy Monday! 

Until next time............. Xoxo

Simple Dinner, thanks to @Influenster and @PFChangHomeMenu !

So, I was lucky to be included in the new +Influenster @influenstervoxbox @pfchanghomemenu voxbox. It included one simple and genius item to make dinner with. It was a sauce from PF Chang's. They had four different sauces sent out, Sesame, Teriyaki, Kung Pao and Mongolian Style BBQ. I received the Kung Pao flavor and had a nice savory tangy spicy kick to it. I loved it!! 


My dinner was super simple and easy to make. I grilled up some chicken breast and applied the sauce on top, let it simmer and voila! Then I steamed some white rice and grilled some green beans on the side. Prep time was about 20-25 mins and overall cooking time took about 45 mins. It was the simplest dinner. And trust me, when you work full time and have to make dinner, I always make sure it's a quick recipe that will require little time and effort. 

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes

Next time, I plan to make dinner using shrimp, stay tuned! 

Until next time.......... Xoxo
