American Eagle Feature

My phone battery was low and as I was checking my phone,I got a tagged photo from American Eagle, to my surprise they featured one of the outfits I was wearing for Swim Week. It's a really nice experience when a brand appreciates the way you style their pieces. All the sweating during that week paid off with this. Thank you again, American Eagle.
It was sort of a strange experience as well to be judged by some of their followers. (We can't please everyone). I've always been raised to be polite and if I have nothing nice to say keep it to yourself or basically just shut up lol! People were commenting how skinny I was, how young I looked(that's a compliment) some were saying I looked 12 lol! I wanted to pin point that if you are in the same situation as I am, if people are judging how you look, ignore them, half the time the ones who say mean things are the ones who have self issues. Just be yourself, as long as you are happy and healthy that is what matters. No one can ever dicatate anything to you. It's your life.
Regardless there were 11,000 plus likes in my photo and I'm more than honored to be featured.

Feed your body and mind

I used to gunk on Lays, ice cream and everything sweet! Finally came to a conclusion that too much sugar, salt and dairy consumption causes my break outs. Tried to cut back on my bad habits and I'm feeling better than ever. Been eating a lot of fruit and healthy snacks and I've noticed I am more energetic. I've been shopping at Fresh Market and the Kind snacks brand is my fave! Talk about protein! I usually get compliments how people love that no matter how much I eat I don't gain which is not in any favor on my end (Im dying to gain lol)
Of course reading self help books has helped with my outlook in life too. Law of attraction is so powerful that you can be anything you want. Ask, affirm and give thanks to everything that you have. Check out Urban Outfitters' books, they have a wide selection.

Stella McCartney $600+ on sale and store had 4 more in stock

Rebecca Minkoff $160+

Which is your fave?

MBFW: Swim Week Miami

This is my first year to attend Swim Week. (although I've been to the shows in NY) I have to say I do regret submitting my credentials late (hectic schedule). Most of the shows were full by the time I got mine approved. Although I'm beyond happy to be given the chance to see backstage for several of the shows.
(Thank You Zoya Nail Polish)

I've always been a behind the scenes person. Either working as a dresser, as a stylist or as an assitant stylist. This was just a dream come true!

Backstage shows teamwork. I love seeing people work together, putting their best to give the audience a great show. Hopefully the photos I've taken will give you a take of how it's like to be in Swim Week. I will be posting them in the next days. Behind the scenes and my fave pieces.
All the sweating was super worth it. (Not to forget the crazy weather, the next thing you know it's raining hard) Uhmm yeah welcome to Miami.

For now I'm just chilling by the pool, hoping for a relaxing massage next to it.

Same background,different outfit

If you follow me on Instagram I'm sure you have noticed that I only have a few familiar shooting locations as of now.

Doing blogging part time is tricky since I can only do my shoots during my free time. During the weekdays it gets crazy busy so as much as I want to visit and shoot at other places I really can't. And mind you I take my own photos, it's a relationship between me and my tripod. My husband hates taking photos for me (we end up fighting if I don't like the photos lol) so I've gotten resourceful and do my own outfit posts. Set the timer and settings and I'm good to go. I'm really hoping to reinvent my blog and instagram in the near future. For now, please bear with me.

There have been so many great deals and couldn't say no. Here are my most recent purchase.

Charlotte Olympia flats and my Gucci Espadrilles. Both fit well and both are very comfortable.

I'm going to do a full review on my YouTube channel.

Style Lounge

I was given the chance to become a part of the photo shoot for Escape Miami 2. Last year, I was assisting Annie (www.thefashionpoet com) for the shoot. It is always a fun experience and fun to try new things. I've always been a behind the scenes person so being in front of the camera is something I've never been comfortable about. But the team made it so easy for me. Annie was even giving me ideas for poses. Next thing is we were shooting for Deco Drive. Everything is so much fun! I enjoy being around creative people!

Save the date. July 19. National Hotel. 12-5 pm.
