Lately ....

Here are a few snapshots from the past month or two. I haven't had much time to work on the blog because I'm finishing up small details for the wedding and decorating the condo David and I purchased :) 

H&M accessories, H&M ring, H&M, H&M fashion, Pom Pom Scarf

This big ass ring is from H&M and it was love at first sight. It combined all my favorite colors and added unique textures and a pop to my OOTD.

Chanel Espadrille look a likes, Target shoes, Target Espadrilles, Chanel Gold CC Earrings,


Target is where I bought these Chanel look a like espadrilles. Aren't they just a dream. Every time I find really good "look a likes" for a fraction of the cost I feel accomplished and I pat myself on the back because I didn't spend a boat load of money. 

Ikea Pax System, Walk in Cloest, Ikea Pax, Ikea Cloest, Shoe Closet, White Closet, Built-in walkin closet, Shoes, Heels

Dreams do come true and this is my dream coming true! Who doesn't want a whole room dedicated to displaying their wardrobe?? I know I do!!! It's still a work in progress but I'm almost done putting it together. I will definitely dedicate a blog post to this work of art!!


Quay Australia Sunglasses, Quay Australia Gold Steel Cat Sunglasses, Quay Gold Steel Cat Sunglasses, Quay Sunnies

I had seen Quay Australia sunglasses on some big Youtubers and fashion bloggers but I never thought about checking them out because I figured they would be too expensive for my taste. Boy, I was wrong because I was able to find these bad boys for around $40 or $50 each and I love them. I was worried about the quality but they are very sturdy and made from really good material. They were so good I had to buy 2!! Gold & Black

Mirrored side table, Lamp, TJ Maxx Lamp, Create Coffee Mug, Glass Picture Frame, HomeGoods Happy

I had a very hard time the first week I moved in with David. You know that feeling when your at a hotel and it doesn't feel like home? Well thats the feeling I had for a week or two and I just couldn't make myself feel at home because I missed my family. After I shed a few tears and had my brother and lil pup spend the night a few times and put up some pictures of my loved ones I felt right at home. The glass frame and lamp are from TJ Maxx, the mug is from HomeGoods and the mirrored side table is from Lamps Plus

River Island purple floral mesh swimsuit, River Island swimsuit, One piece bathing suit, River Island, Liatorp Coffee Table, Ikea Coffee table, Ikea Liatorp Coffee Table, Z Gallerie Coasters,

Now that I'm getting older I'm realizing I can look fly in a one piece and feel much more comfortable. The swimsuit is from River Island, the coasters are from Z Gallerie and the coffee table is from Ikea.

Flowers, Instagram, Hydrangeas, Blue Hydrangeas, Purple Hydrangeas

Some of my favorite flowers in such a vibrant color. This was supposed to be a hint for my fiancé but he never got it. lol I will just buy my own flowers for the home.

Lilly Pulitzer, Lilly Pulitzer for Target, Lilly Pulitzer Espresso cups, Lilly Pulitzer pom pom napkins, Lilly Pulitzer Swivel Sticks, Lilly Pulitzer Bottle Opener, Lilly Pulitzer wine stoppers

I woke up super early on a Sunday and waited in line for about 40 minutes for Target to open. I had to have these cups from the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection. I love how vibrant the mugs are and I even bought certain things I didn't need like the napkins. Everything else I purchased was for the cool bar I am trying to decorate at home. 

Zara yellow waist coat, Zara coat, Zara Yellow coat, Fashion Blogger, Latina Fashion Blogger

Just celebrating my birthday a week early at my favorite dessert place, Bottega Louie. I am in love with the salted carmel macaroons. They make my tummy soooooo happy it even does a happy dance. Coat is from Zara.

Hope everyone is doing well. If you want to catch up follow me on Instagram!

I wanted to share with you another great shoe I bought from Zara when they had their huge black friday sale (a long time ago). I was not sure if these would fit properly because Zara doesn't carry an 8.5 which is my normal shoe size, so I normally have to buy a half size up. Sometimes the 9 works perfectly but most of the time it's too loose. This time around it worked out and of course I bought the gold ones too because that's the kind of girl I am. My fiancé thinks I'm crazy but gold and silver classic pumps are so hard to come by so when Zara has a sale and has both colors you just have to buy them, no questions asked! I've had such great experiences with every Zara shoe I've purchased which is why I keep coming back for more!!

While shooting in the park we made a little furry friend! A little fun fact about me is I love animals,  I think I like them more than I like humans. LOL JK but you get my drift. I'm a huge animal lover and I have this connection with them. We get each other! Haha! I know I sound crazy!!

P.S. I've been super MIA (missing in action) because I am marrying my best friend next month and I have a lot of last minute wedding details to tend to plus we have officially become homeowners :) We had been in the process over a month ago but we finally closed escrow and received the keys last Sunday. I might incorporate my home decorating stuff on the blog from time to time. Enjoy your weekend dolls!!
