THE DRUGSTORE SERIES: L’OREAL INFALLIBLE PRO-GLOW FOUNDATION

It’s another Monday and you know what that means, a brand new post for The Drugstore Series! Last week I totally missed my post, but I promise it was for good reason guys- it was my birthday and I was in Disney! Lol. Talk about trying to turn back the clock >.< Anyway by now you guys already know that I’m a fool for bargain shopping, especially when it comes to trying to get my dupes with makeup. I mean I love me some high-end makeup, ...

The Drugstore Series: The Eye Studio Brow Define and Fill Duo

Okay so a few months ago I was all over Instagram raving about my new favorite eyebrow pencil—the Eye Studio Brow Define and Fill Duo by Maybelline. I thought I had hit drugstore makeup gold when I purchased it at $7.99, giving me at least some guilt relief from purchasing my regular $21 Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil. When I first got it, I loved it! I mean guys, I lived it. I raved about it to everyone, went online and posted ...

Smooth(ie) Operator

So it’s time for all that “New Year, New Me” babble that can get under the skin of many, but ease up kid, let it slide. The new year calls for new hope, new goals, intentions, resolutions, you call it! Everyone is so focused in becoming better with the promise of a whole new year that it’s so easy to fall into that new year new me status, when in reality the new year has nothing to do with it. It’s just a timeframe.  Like my friend Huguette ...

Fashion Guide As Easy as 1, 2, III Points!

Last year was my first experience at III Points and I remember the first thing I did when I found out I was going, was Google what the hell to wear. I had heard about III Points and I thought it seemed like this super cool hipster-type concert people boast about all year, but I literally had no idea what the hell to wear. In case you don’t live in Miami and don’t know what III Points is, it’s a music arts and technology festival that was ...

Skin is IN

Oh Monday’s… you gotta love ’em! They’re an opportunity to be goal-oriented and kick some ass for the rest of the week-but let’s be honest, it’s the most dreaded day of the week. That’s why not too long ago I decided to pamper myself every Monday night, kind of like a reward for being a #GirlBoss. If you’re anything like me, then you’re always on the run with not enough time to prep and care for your skin ...

WRAP it up!

Am I the only that’s been obsessing over denim and chambray lately? I mean, I know it was a complete fashion faux-pas some years back but I am all about the statement fabric now (of course without making the Britney and J.T. denim mistake of the century! LOL) One of my favorite go-to outfits is my denim wrap dress, which is definitely the IT dress of the moment. Having been immortalized by the respectable Diane von Furstenberg in the 1970’s ...

[SPECIAL] Swim Week SEAsun

Oh Swim Week. Probably one of the most anticipated, loved, and definitely most draining five days Miamians experience. Every year seems to be different than the last, and I’m not just talking about the designs. Swim Week has been a topic for many, ever since it cut off its ties with IMG and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in 2015 and quickly became Miami Swim Week. Influencers and reporters alike were heard saying how drastically the event ...

Color POP!

It’s summertime and if there’s anything we don’t want is to feel like our face is melting from all the makeup we’re wearing. That’s why my go-to look this summer has been simple makeup and a pop of color! Nothing says summer like a bright, clean-cut, vibrant lippie paired with minimal and effortless makeup. Check out my favorite top 5 lipsticks below! ♡

Damage Control

So in case you haven’t checked out my transformation miscalculation post (here). I went through a girl’s worst nightmare, where I did a collaboration with a hair salon to get some lighter locks, and my hair ended up completely damaged and nearly falling off.   It was a complete nightmare to be honest with you. My hair kept falling out, it was extremely dried out, and the split ends from the chemical damage was appalling.  I was eager ...

Transformation Miscalculation

DISCLAIMER: This article was originally supposed to be a step-by-step of my summer hair transformation collaboration with Glam Lounge Miami, but instead I wanted to share with you all my experience with Glam Lounge. When I started this blog, I promised myself and my readers that I would stand out from the rest and promised my readers I would keep the integrity of my blog and be incredibly honest with any collaboration or reviews that I do. ...
