I’ve partnered up with my friends over at Best Choice Product to bring you my review on this 5-piece pinewood Dining set. I easily fell in love with this set because it was simple and minimal with a vintage vibe. Most of you already know we just relocated again recently at the end of December, so we are still in the middle of unpacking countless boxes, painting the girls room and pretty much redecorating. So this Dining set came just in time and fitted right in. Not sure how it will fit with our planned decor but we’ll see. It’s such a versatile kitchen and dining set and very suitable if you are on a budget or live in a smaller place.
Assembling was pretty fun and took my husband just about an hour and fifteen minutes. Hubby and I decided that we will turn this into our little breakfast nook since the dimensions aren’t big enough for our family gatherings and having dinner etc. I can’t wait to finish decorating this area so I can update you guys with decor setup. Another thing I liked about this set is that its minimal and great for a small family with children. The pinewood finish makes it so easy to clean up any mess so you wouldn’t have to worry about stain buildup. Thats always a plus when children are involved. I know other moms can relate to that. Furthermore, the table and chairs are very strong and the overall quality is decent.
Have you every shop with Best Choice Products before? I’f not, you’re totally missing out! They’re very affordable, free shipping and fast delivery. Have a great rest of the week guys.
I’m back! 🙂
I decided to take a break from my blog once I was diagnosed with the flu back in December, right before Christmas Eve. I literally needed that break and it was so overdue. Most of all, I’m really glad to finally get over the flu in the past couple weeks because darling it was awful. Its great to take a break for self once in a while so you can focus on just you and reevaluate, meditate and re prioritize things.
Last weekend, I started a new series on my instagram #SkinLoveSaturday which I will be posting there and here about all my skincare essentials, while providing you skincare tips and natural remedies to facilitate with improving your skin/skin conditions such as acne etc. I’m super excited about this because I love taking care of my skin from the inside out. Speaking of skin, one of the most FAQ’s that people ask me is what is my skincare regime? I’ve spoken about this exact same question two years ago so I think its time to revisit and let my new supporters know my number one skincare line.
I’ve been using Dermalogica for 15 years and it has always kept my skin looking flawless. Dermalogica is literally my holy grail. I was first introduced to it by one of my best friends, Adoria, and I haven’t stopped using it till this day. It’s one of the best things that ever happened to my skin. What I really love about their products is that they aren’t tested on animals, and you can see results as immediately following the first use. I remember when I first tried it and I recall telling Adoria: “Omg! I can’t believe how amazing my skin feels right now… it’s so soft.” It felt hydrated and within the first week I threw out all the other stuff I was using and replaced it with all Dermalogica Skincare products.
The special cleansing gel, skin prep scrub, multi-active toner and skin smoothing cream are my main go to daily essentials. I love how calming and refreshing the gel is on my skin which is very soothing. The toner is like a great moisturizer prep. It hydrates my skin so good and the skin smoothing cream asborbs so much better once you apply this. Lastly, the skin smoothing cream has great antioxidants, promotes elasticity and leaves my skin feeling smooth and looking flawless. Keep in mind that their are so many different skin types out there, so you might need something different from me. No problem there because dermalogica also carries different lines for your skin needs. Skin can also change depending on the season. My skin type is “combination” but mostly dry in the winter. Check out all the amazing products they carry on their website to fit your skin type.
I will talk about more of their products that I use in other upcoming posts; like the gentle cream exfoliant, one of my absolute favs-I use it once a week. I’m really picky when it comes to testing out new skincare from other brands but I have tried others some works, some don’t. Dermalogica have never failed me and it will always be my number one. Remember, take care of your skin from within. Eating healthy, drinking plethora of water, exercising and eating loads of tomatoes makes taking care of your skin on the outside so much easier. Have a great weekend my loves.
#SkinLoveSaturday Tip : Eating Watermelon can help reduce acne breakouts and keep skin healthier.

As Autumn begins to slowly fade, Winter is quickly approaching. I’ll miss all of the beautiful colorful Trees as they burst in beauty with their crunching, crinkling leaves. Not to mention pumpkin spice and everything nice. In the midst of it all, I try to embrace the changes, the new season coming, us moving into a new home, hubby’s and I marriage anniversary and awaiting Christmas in a winter wonderland. It’s like a new adventure is beginning all over again.
WHAT I’M WEARING:
This loose knit sweater is perfect and it comes in three different colors. I went up a size to have more of a bigger oversize fit. This is my favorite color of the three for the current season. It’s so cozy and look just as good in person. You can dress it up and wear it or casually with jeans or joggers. P.S. It’s currently almost 50% OFF so better grab it before its gone.
I’m slightly becoming addicted to my OTK Boots that I’ve been wearing them on repeat. Unfortunately they sold out quicker than Usain Bolt but there are a few sizes still left in the grey which I also have. Its such a pretty soft color and can be worn both in Fall and Winter. Just keep in mind they aren’t snow boots. haha

Hello My Darlings;
Hope your week is going swell! We have been so busy packing and cleaning for our next move which is happening very soon. Things are a bit chaotic and I find myself feeling overwhelmed and drained. My schedule is even more busier than ever now in addition to many new collaborations. Can’t wait to move into our new home and finally settle in. While moving can be stressful, it can also be fun, exciting and a new adventure.
WHAT IM WEARING:
I wore this look to the bookstore for a cafe date with hubby outside. It was perfect! I’ve been obsessed with berets for as long as I know; even more when Faye Dunaway rocked it the coolest in Bonnie & Clyde. Dressing up a classic black beret with a basic white turtleneck and monochrome printed skirt makes for an effortlessly chic French look. My otk boots was the icing on the cake. The Perfect Fall Staple. I’ve also styled basic tops with ripped denim and heels for a more casual polished look.
Speaking of Polish, I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of my Valentino Bag. I mean, its my favorite bag although I have some other coveted ones in my wardrobe, nothing compares to this one-yet! Sometimes I even turn it into a diaper bag.. it fits everything. Most of the time, I forget to change handbags because I’m so used to this bag and I’m always on-the-go. I know I can’t be the only one in the world with this problem. Do any of you have a favorite bag that you almost carry everywhere? How is the holidays coming along for you? Is your tree up and decorated yet? I love Christmas season. xx
Thanks For Visiting!

CURRENTLY LISTENING: The Cranberries- Linger
How was your Thanksgiving break? This year we decided to stay home and not travel to extended family members since we are in the middle of moving again. Speaking of moving, I’m pretty excited about relocating. I mean, it comes with being an Army Wife. Elated to start yet another new journey with my beautiful family. P.S. If you watched my Instagram Story, then you saw that we made cornish hen with rosemary and took a break from the Turkey this year. It actually turned out pretty great.. 🙂
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Whoever said pom poms are only a summer-spring trend must have never seen me rock pom poms in the fall-winter. The obsession with this sweater began when I posted a preview shot of this look to my Instagram. I mean, I can understand why. This oversized sweater has become one of my favorite wardrobe staple. It’s very versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. I prefer effortless looks so I styled it with a black wrap mini skirt and black velvet booties. It’s definitely a fashion must-have item. It comes in navy blue and grey-they sell out fast and will be restocked soon so just keep checking.
Whenever you go for a bold statement sweater, lose the jewelry or keep it minimal as possible. You want the sole focus to be about that statement piece. For a casual, relaxed look, pair it with a classic fit Levis jeans or whatever minimal brand jeans your prefer. Add a simple, white long sleeve shirt to your oversized knits/pullovers for an edgy-meets tomboy look.

CURRENTLY LISTENING: Autumn (Ryan Stewart -Equanimity)
Time has flown by so fast lately. In the blink of an eye Autumn is slowly fading, the leaves have fallen and Winter preparations had soon begun. I’m not ready to give up the crisp air, bonfires, pumpkin spice latte; the smell of autumn as I dance in the breeze and watch the wind twirl my hair -while the leaves speaks bliss to me. What a bittersweet moment in time, as I sit here, sipping some hot tea, reminiscing as I type this. If only I could pause Autumn in its richest and ripest phase. It’s my happiest season. Now we will be parting soon..

CURRENTLY LISTENING: M.I.A. -Paper Planes
So I’ve been mia for a short while here on the blog due to being under the weather. Very few people, as in close friends knew why. I was diagnosed with Pneumonia so I needed to take a break and focus on my well-being. I’m back because my progress is better and I’m just way to driven and persistent to stay away too long. Nonetheless, I do value my health and its indeed my top priority so lets not get it twisted.
I’ve wanted to share with you all this look from a couple weeks ago, especially since i’ve gotten plethora of questions about it initially on my Instagram. I’m big on oversize clothing in the Fall season, specifically oversize dresses, sweaters and jackets. Most of the time, they make great transitional pieces into Winter. Unfortunately, this oversize dress got sold out faster than Usain Bolt! Sadly, it came in three colors and they’re all gone. Hope you managed to snag one from when I first asked you to- in previous post, where I was wearing the other colors.
I’ve been rocking mustard and deep autumnal colors on repeat. You may have noticed this already on my Instagram. I love creating my own color palette like I did here without following the norm. I’m always brainstorming and inventing my own color combination. It’s an even greater feeling when you guys told me how much you loved it on my Insta.
Beret is one of my favorite hats to wear during the season. They’re so Parisian and chic and makes a great addition to almost any looks. Not to mention, they’re one of the most requested- trendy hats for the season. I have many different berets and colors for the remainder of autumn, even some to crossover with during the Winter season. If you know me, you already know I’m huge on Parisian Fashion so this will come to you as no surprise.
Velvet is so last season, NOT!!! You may have spotted some of the best velvet looks on the 2017 Prada Fashion Show. You will normally see this trend quite a bit during the Fall-Winter, whether clothing, shoes or accessories. I’m already pre-planning some of my velvet winter looks, especially for the Holidays. What about you guys? Are you loving the return of the velvet trend?

CURRENTLY LISTENING: Jennifer Lopez – Get Right
Hello My Darlings;
I’m so elated that it’s Friday! We are taking the girls to a Trunk or Treat this evening and they are so excited about getting into their Halloween Costumes. Especially baby Isabella. Adrhiana is more excited about collecting the candy that I never let her eat. lol I’m that mom who won’t let my children eat from strangers. I’m just very over-protective..for the right reasons. I’m not big on trusting just anyone. I’m actually a bit under the weather too; nonetheless, I’m going to push through so they can have a great time.
Alright, so I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of seeing me in these shoes. These boots have easily became my new fav. Seriously, I’ve been wearing them on repeat. They are from the latest Who what Wear collection. I love the versatility they bring-you can effortlessly take them from casual to dressy instantly. Its the perfect fall boots. Now lets talk about this top that everyone on my Instagram thought was the best shirt ever. I mean, I agree. I’m obsessed with Pumpkin Spice and Everything Autumn so its only fitting. Not to mention, I love a good bargain and this is one of those pieces that I love to style and make it look like its worth more than the actual price tag.
I wanted to incorporate neutral shades of grey with minimalistic black, for a casual- chic downtown look. This is basically how I dress when hubby said: “just wear something casual and meet up for a coffee date” lol! By the way, My faux fur vest is probably one of the most wanted pieces in this look but unfortunately, it sold out. Lucky you, I’ve linked a similar style here. P.S. I’m still deciding between 3 things for my halloween costume..still not sure. I want you guys to be astonished so I won’t reveal anything just yet. 😉

CURRENTLY LISTENING: Pink-Beautiful Trauma
Todays look is all about this oversize dress that I’ve worn before in a previous post, just a different color. I’m a huge fan of anything with bell sleeves and oversized in the Fall. I’m even more of a bigger Fan when it comes to finding affordable pieces. Remember when I told you that this dress comes in 3 different colors? Well, you probably should have shopped for it then because I just found out that they are all sold out completely. I’ve linked a similar style here under $50-also comes in 3 different colors.
I actually planned to shoot this look 2 ways in one day, but I had to switch up the first way last minute because the weather took a turn and lets just say I was Hot AF here..no pun intended. I went with the camo booties (2nd option) and created an old school side tie detail on the dress and came up with this badass look last minute. I guess sometimes things don’t always go as planed right? 😉 I’m so glad the weekend is almost here. Anyways, gotta run! Baby Isabella is waking up as we speak..
