Summer Ready!

Who is ready for Summer? The weather here in So CA has been amazing lately and it's time to showcase your summer attire. With that said, how cool is my dress from Shein.  I love the pop of color with the orange tassels and how it's fun and flirty from the back with a sexy cut-out. So perfect for summer and I can't wait to showcase more dresses like this. 

This is in size Large, It's a little loose but I like how it fits. You can check this dress or other similar dress at very affordable prices here. I paired the dress with some really cute orange sandals from Forever21.

I am loving the back, it's so sexy!

My Current Nighttime Routine

Hi guys, 

Today I'm sharing with you my night time routine. I've been meaning to share this with you for a while but keep forgetting. As you know, I've super into beauty products and I love sharing with you my favorite makeup products and what not but I also love skin care products and I feel I need to share my regime on how I take care of my skin and what I use to keep me looking young, hahaha. 

Before I wouldn't wash my face and would forget to remove my makeup at night. Now, I religiously practice what I preach and almost never fall asleep with my makeup on. Doesn't matter how tired or busy I am, I always take 15-20 mins for myself at night.

I start off with a double cleanse, meaning I remove my makeup with a makeup wipe. My current favorite ones are the Kirkland brand, and these I get at Cost-co. After I wash my face with Boscia's Purifying Cleansing Gel with lukewarm water, this is the double-cleanse party. Then I go with a serum, and a serum targets a specific problem you are having and it's more effective. Currently, I'm using Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum on several of my sun spots. Not sure why they suddenly decided to come out but definitely working on them to disappear or reduce the darkness. From then on, I use my favorite oil of all time!!! I seriously love this so much and can't live without it, it's Sunday Riley's U.F.O Ultra Clarifying Face Oil. This oil has worked wonders on my skin. I know you aren't supposed to, but sometimes I pick at my face and this oil helps get rid and/or reduce the scars, clears my skin and treats my acne. You have to try it out!! Moving on, next it's an eye cream. I go back and forth with eye creams. I was using the Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream and Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. They both target fine lines but one brightens and the other one hydrates. After all that, my last step is applying Algenist Power Recharging Night Pressed Serum, another hero product for my skin. It has reduced my fine lines and has given me a better smoother canvas to work with. 

Remember, this is what works for me and my type of skin. I just wanted to share with you what I use and what has worked for me through time. Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like for me to share my day-time regime. I would love to share that as well. 

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

Shopping Event with the Socal Blogger Babes!

As some of you might know, I recently joined Socal Blogger Babes. This is such a big dream come true for me. I'm feeling blessed and grateful for these opportunities coming my way. 

Last night I attended my first ever event with the girls and I was finally able to meet Shelby, Allison and some of the blogger babes from the OC group. They are all so sweet and amazing. It was a great experience and what better way to bring us together than to go shopping. 

We all met at this boutique, Alixandra Collections in Newport Beach, CA. It was my first time at this boutique and let me tell you, it was adorable. They have something for everybody. From really cute beachy-nautical clothing pieces, to accessories, sunglasses, shoes, and jewelry. I couldn't decide what to get. Every corner of their store had something and their decor was also to die for. 

They treated us to champagne, cupcakes and some brownie bites, yum!

Product Review: Boy Brow and Lip Gloss from Glossier

As some of you may already know, I recently visited the new Glossier store in Los Angeles and I was able to get my hands on their most popular product, their Boy Brow. I also bought myself their gloss

First up, their boy brow product. This is a grooming pomade which comes in three different colors. You can get it in clear, brown, black or blonde. This small mascara wand applicator and the tinted pomade resembles another popular brand product for the eyebrows.  

I selected the brown shade. It's more of a pomade to groom your brows, keeps them in place and gives it some texture without looking so over the top. 

Step 1. Groom your brows
Step 2. Apply the product going up, side, down. This is a trick I've learned and it works. Always brush the brow the way it grows. 
Step 3. Apply the product in place to frame the brow
Step 4. Clean up brow with concealer or makeup remover

After using the boy brow product on my eyebrows, I felt I still needed more product. It wasn't giving me what I wanted my eyebrow to look. I had to go again with another product to fill in and give me a fuller brow. The reason why it wasn't working for my eyebrows is that this product is meant for someone that has full brows. I don't have a lot of brow hair and it's really thin and fine, so the product wasn't holding on to anything that much. I did use it after to give me more texture and that did the trick. I liked it better how it looked with another product than using it alone. 

Now on to the lip gloss. This product just enhances your lips by making them look fuller and plumped without actually applying a plumper. It's becoming my favorite gloss, why because it's not tacky, has vitamin E to keep your lips hydrated and it's clear. You can easily apply one swipe on the lip and it gives you the full effect right away. The applicator makes it easy to apply which is another plus. 

Overall, my favorite product was the lip gloss. I love lip product so far. The boy brow is a great product but for my type of eyebrows, it didn't work. Don't get me wrong, I like it but just not for me. 

Hopefully you guys like my review, and remember this is my honest opinion of the product, not sponsored. 

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

Take me with you....

Happy Tuesday! Today has me feeling like it's Monday because of the long weekend but so glad it's not. I'm hoping everyone had a nice weekend. With that said, it's a beautiful day here in Cali and summer is already just around the corner. 

I'm featuring this beautiful short dress from Shein in today's outfit post. I'm loving how lightweight it feels, the tiered effect and color is a plus. 

The style is Frill Detail Bishop Sleeve Tiered Botanical Dress from Shein. The material is Chiffon and the length is a little short for my liking, but it's so cute and sexy. I couldn't pass it off! 

Who is excited about Summer!?? 
This would be a perfect dress to wear for an afternoon brunch date with your girls or even a summer wedding. I wore it for a quick outing with my husband and it was just perfection. 

Hope you guys like this look! 

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

Happy Memorial Day!

Hope everyone is having a great day and today, take some time remembering those who have fallen serving our country's armed forces. 

In honor of today's national holiday I decided to incorporate our country's colors in my outfit. I paired my Elastic Waisted Pleated Wide Pants from Shein with a lace sleeveless top and to top it off, a nice pop of color, my crossbody handbag from Target. This has been my month's favorite accessory so far. 

Elastic Waisted Pleated Wide Leg Pants in Navy Color, Shein- They are super comfy and easy to walk in.

Visiting the new Glossier Store in LA!

This weekend, my girlfriend and I drove up to LA to check out the new Glossier Store.

 If you don't know what this brand is, please google it. It's a beauty brand which sells beauty products, skin care, and body care. Their new store opened up last week and we've been hearing a lot of buzz and also seeing so many posts on social media so we decided to make an LA adventure out of it. We drove up to West Hollywood early Sunday afternoon, took in the LA traffic, which for a Sunday afternoon, it wasn't that bad. 

The store is nicely decorated with pink floors, pink stands, pink everything. Decored with huge tall mirrors around the walls, simple yellow flower arrangements, and their products nicely displayed flat around the store. Even their employees look amazing wearing a pink jumpsuit as their uniform. 

Every corner is Instagram appropriate, you have to take advantage of the space and decor. 

Also, if you go, make sure you experience their pink canyon room "Glossier Canyon". This is a small room where you enter and it's inspired by the Antelope Canyon in Arizona. From the lighting to the sounds, it's perfection!! 

My favorite place of the store!! 

Of course, I had to get some of their products. I will do a review on their products soon. Overall, it was a great experience and we enjoyed the trip. Hope you guys get to go if you are in the LA area. 

Until next time.......Xoxo
