Trend Alert!!

VELVET!?!?…..

I know I’m totally dating myself here, but I remember being little and having a nice black velvet dress, which I adored! But was only allowed to wear on “special occasions”. My abuelita used to say velvet was a very elegant material which should only be worn when the occasion merited it.

Let’s forward to 2017!… Yes just a few short years! 😉 and VELVET is everywhere!! It’s no secret that I love JustFab & Shoedazzle! They are top on my favorite monthly clubs’ list! and my one-stop fashion experts! Not just because of the items they sell, but because through them, I have met amazing, strong, independent, beautiful women! Amazing fashionistas! Bloggers! Professionals! Confident! Rocking women! & yes! Real fashion gurus! Which I will tell you all about in another post!

Where was I? Ah! Velvet!… I was browsing these sites and checking out my awesome bloggers and velvet was everywhere!… It took me a bit to process, but I finally jumped on the trend and I am thankful I did! I need to show you some of my favorite items!! Because Oh Em Gee!

Hazel Crossbody Bag from Shoedazzle! I know right!?

Velvet Booties!! Casual and chic in Kalene or BAM! You cannot take your eyes away from me Sonia!… #Fire!

What about Cosette!?! These ballerina-like pumps are nothing but sexy & romantic! All wrapped around your ankle, in a very sexy bow!

Janessa! Not exactly velvet I know, I digress!… But hello! She’s beautiful! And this flower trend is also everywhere! ❤️

Last but not least, Slouchy Velvet Sweater! LOVE!… So much so, that I ordered it, received it, and promptly wore it to a concert for Mexican Fiestas weekend in Vegas! In which I saw two of my favorite papacitos! Alejandro Fernandez & Pepé Aguilar! Shheeeaaaooowww! It’s getting HOT in here!

I unfortunately did not get to meet Pepé in person, but hanging out with his mariachi band totally counts! Doesn’t it!?!? I know it does!

I KNOW!! 😍 Yes! You are welcome!… and thank you for letting me blabber about fashion trends too! 😉

Until next time! XOXO!

Bear With Me… Maybe Even Bare With Me!…

I know I abandoned my blog for a while and even though I didn’t mean to, well… life happens. There’s been a lot going on since our last talk, deaths, tears, smiles, more deaths, some endings, some new beginnings, some career growth, and well, some issues where I’m still stuck… In any case, I’m going to give this a shot and tell you a little bit about this journey, which I’m sure some of you can identify with.

Hopefully we can share some laughs, some tears, some growth, and some fashion too!!

Review on Skinny Jeans!?!? Me??… Yup!

jeansHave you ever put on a pair of jeans that just make you feel girly, cute, sexy and oh so comfy?!?!?! ME TOO!! I just have tell you about JustFab jeans! They are the bomb!

I was a little iffy at first and not so much because of the jeans, but because they are skinny jeans. I thought to myself ‘I am a mom of three, I don’t wear skinnies!’. In the meantime, everyone was raving about them and I kept seeing people pair them up with casual outfits and going out outfits and everyone was loving them. I thought ‘what the heck!’. I am a JustFab Brand Ambassador and when they suggested I try them for free, well I had to jump at the opportunity!! I chose skinny jeans in a gray lace print. These are way out of my comfort zone! Yes! My comfort zone is pretty narrow! Lol

I put them on and I have to tell you OMG!! I love them!! I love them way more than I thought I would!! They are thin and they adjust to your body. They hug my curves and they feel amazing. I kept looking in the mirror and really trying to find something wrong so as not to step out of my mommy comfort zone, but I just couldn’t!

I paired them up with two going out outfits. Hey! I’m a mom! I don’t make it out too often! Haha… I was getting home from the gym when I tried them on so yeah pardon the whole no make-up! Anyway, I wanted to share this with you because you really must try them! They are regularly $39.95 and you can buy one, get one half off!. If you are new to this monthly shoe club, you will love it! Please read the terms and conditions! You can cancel anytime, but it is a monthly club! 😉 Any questions? Leave me a comment! I would love to hear what you think! J

What Takes Priority – Womanhood Or Motherhood? Must There Be A Choice??

I am married with children… Been married over ten years and my kids are toddlers… I am happy… Fairly happy… I mean don’t get me wrong I love my kids and I believe motherhood is the greatest blessing a woman can experience! But we can talk a little bit more about that later.

Now, what happens after? Now that the children are here and you have become so busy with life and your duties as parents, that you unintentionally stop taking care of you as a woman, or you as a man and you and him, as a couple??

Life gets hectic, you have work, kids, homework, soccer or football lessons, ballet lessons, laundry, chores, food to cook, etc, etc… When do you have time for just you? When do you have time for you and him as a couple?

I suppose you make time. How do you make time? What suffers? What do you put aside? How do you decide what doesn’t get done and furthermore, what if only one of you is trying to make time to be together as a couple and keep the flame alive? Do you try to make him or her understand you must try? That you must make that time? That you must put the gruesomeness of a very very busy day aside and gather strength to possibly have a decent conversation with your spouse and try to keep the flame alive?

Is there always a need to “make the time” and “keep the flame alive”? What if one person is content with just doing the parent thing, but not really in the mood to do the couple’s thing? Not because he or she is a mean person, but because maybe he or she is thinking marriage is marriage, it’s there forever and it’s there for better or for worse… What then?….
