Girls just wanna have fun | La chicas solo quieren divertirse

One last ride for the brideIf you follow me on my social media, you already know that last weekend, I was in Las Vegas for my friend Esmeralda’s Bachelorette party. This trip was very special because it was my very first bachelorette party here in the U.S, believe or not. We wanted to do a road trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The challenge was to find a car big and comfortable enough to fit 7 girls and our maletas. We were road trip ready with the Kia Sedona, a premium comfort with the power to transform. Fitted with the Smart Power Liftgate and available second-row first-class lounge Seats, the Sedona offers a spacious driver cockpit and versatile Slide-N-Stow® seats, providing intuitive control and flexibility that keeps pace with you. The Sedona is convenient for the modern world. Equipped with available features such as multiple AC outlets, faster USB charging, Infinity® Premium Audio, and a glove box with built-in cooling, the Sedona is stylish and sensible, accommodating all your high-tech must-haves while on the road. feature_sedona_2015_first-class-seating_S--Kia-600x-jpg

We wanted to do the normal thing you do a bachelorette party, yes I am talking about male erotic dancing, but we didn’t want to go a sloppy place, we wanted to keep it classy so we went to Chippendale at Rio. In between, lucky women were being pulled on stage, the Chippendales tore away their clothing and stripped down, teasing every step of the way. At the ultimate girl’s night out, classic fantasies are displayed on stage in the form of construction workers, firefighters, cowboys, and men in uniform.  The show features singing, dance routines, and production-style themed numbers. The dancers are pretty hot and perform a well choreographed show in both provocative and erotic segments to popular contemporary songs. The show reminds me a lot of the Magic Mike movie.

Tips to Look amazing this holiday| luce fabulosa estas fiestas navideñas

Consideration was provided by Target.

Mossimo Dress

Whether it’s decorating your house, shopping for the perfect outfit, serving dinner, or hosting a party with friends and family, you have to get ready for the holidays; the sooner the better.
I have to be honest, I am getting ready for the holidays probably sooner than the average person, but this allows me to actually enjoy the holidays to the fullest and vacilar with my friends and family without the hassle of last minute prep and shopping. Especially with all the invitations flying my way, I have to look my best this holiday. Here are my tips ton how you can so too.

Get your shopping done on time: if you go to Target now you can feel super relaxed you do your shopping, finding the items that you actually want rather than having to settle for whatever is left. This will allow you plan all your party outfits, uno pinta, for every personality and taste.

Red lipstick for darn skinDon’t forget your lips: not only do you need the perfect red lipstick, but you also need to pamper and prepare your lips by exfoliating to remove dry skin, after apply moisturizer, and then add your lip color.

Don’t forget your daytime outfits: in past years, I got invited to a lot of parties during the day and, while I want to look cute, I don’t want to look over dressed at 2 ó clock in the afternoon. A beautiful and unique skirt can pretty much make your whole outfit, this Xhilaration skirt can be worn with literally everything. holiday outfits getting ready for the holiday

One shoe fits all: I wish I could own 10000 pairs of shoes, but I don’t. The best way to be ready in no time, from day to night, is tan pumps.

Save some time to remove your makeup: I know you are tired and probably in bed late, but this is a step that you can’t miss. Keep a makeup remover towelette like Neutrogena make-up remover cleansing towelettes close to your bed so you won’t skip this important beauty step.

Keep your hair style complication free, Just to thinking about the time my hair was relaxed, I swear gives me the chills. Back then (when my hair was relaxed) the holidays meant “perfect” straight hair, which also meant long hours at the hair salon, because every other girl in the island had the same thoughts. Now, I can save myself a lot of time and stress by going with braids or a  twists-out. And is no a problem if I have bad hair day, because I look fabulous wearing a bun and a flawless makeup.

Have fun, don’t stress and Happy Holidays!!

Go Sneakers This Fall |Prenda indispensable para el otoño

Natural HairI have to be honest with you all, I didn’t like sneakers before, ok, ok, let me rephrase that; I thought that sneakers where too informal and were only meant to be worn at the gym or with shorts and those kinds of sporty attires. I never thought of wearing sneakers with other type of clothes. Don’t judge, I know I was wrong, I was confused and didn’t actually know how to style sneakers. But know I do and I use them all year round with any outfit and I look great. Thanks to Pinterest, I came a long way and I am able to go sneakers this fall -and pretty much all year round.

Fall is here and it is time to put away those cute sandals and flip flops, but if you live in California, it is not time to wear heavy boots (even though you may see a lot of Angelinas with this “trend”). I want to keep my feet warm without feeling too hot, and some cute sneakers are definitely the best way to go. You can literally find one for you taste and personality.

how to style yoru sneakers Inkkas shoes handcrafted leather Ivory African JoggerSneakers can be worn with any outfit (the same way that you can wear stilettos with jeans, you can wear sneakers with a dress) and transform it from formal to casual in a second. My favorite sneakers right now are these amazing  Inkkas handcrafted leather Ivory African Jogger, made with authentic African patterns and soft interior lining. They go with almost anything, even with a short skirt and a hoodie coat. It makes me look like I am international, lol. I love my Inkkas for several reasons. As you can see, they are gorgeous, but they are also a great company that engages in fighting against deforestation and environmental degradation. Every pair of Inkkas sold results in a donation to Trees for the Future, a flagship organization in the fight against deforestation.

Rules for Dressing for an Interview | Como vestirse para una entrevista

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Vanity Fair Lingerie. I received product samples to facilitate my review and compensation to thank me for my participation.cabello rizado en el trabajo

While I was in New York for the Vanity Fair summit, I learned about dress for success, a non-profit organization with the mission to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. I was amazed by the work this organization does and the passion of their members.
Vanity Fair saw that passion and dedication in the Dress for success organization and over the past years has made the commitment to donate 50,000 brand-new bras to Dress for Success, in hopes to provide one bra to every woman who walks through Dress for Success doors in the U.S. this year. For this initiative, we can all help and it’s super simple. Here is how it works: You buy one Vanity Fair bra and you Get One, Give One (BOGOGO) events this fall to help support women at Dress for Success®. Buy One, Get One, Give One events will take place during designated weeks in September and October at major U.S. retailers across the country including Kohl’s, JCPenney, and Macy’s. Find a store near you HERE.

Vanity Fair will host Buy One, Get One, Give One events at the following national and regional retailers this fall:

· Kohl’s: Sept. 24 – Oct. 3, 2015
· JCPenney: Oct. 7 – Oct. 12, 2015
· Sears: Oct. 11 – Oct. 17, 2015
· Macy’s: Oct. 14 – Oct. 18, 2015
· Bealls: Oct. 18 – Oct. 24, 2015
· Boscov’s: Oct. 25 – Oct. 31, 2015
· Belk: Nov. 1 – Nov. 8, 2015

Rules to dress for an interview.. I can start writing about my point of view and what worked for me in the past, instead I got you one of the best HR directors in the greater LA -Eldia Santana- to give you an inside on how to dress for success.

Success meets appropriate..
We live in a society where people consider their car keys part of the wardrobe simply because they perceive that walking into a renowned restaurant or bar holding the keys to a Lexus, Mercedes, or the new hot Tesla will give people more notoriety than the regular Toyota Corolla. This is the society where we are forming the next generation of leaders, politicians, doctors, and scientists.

So how do you dress for success? Do you have in your closet every expensive brand name, the trendiest style, the most recent collection of Christian Louboutine or Jimmy Choo or the best Armani season collection? It’s simpler than that. In the HR role that I have held for the last two decades, I find myself amazed on how candidates come to our offices to present themselves as the perfect candidates for the career opportunities we have open.

“Dressing for success” is a very subjective concept depending on the field that candidates have chosen as a professional path or simply their environment. What an engineer perceives as the best outfit for a first interview is completely different to what an account will consider.

That is why my advice to young professionals is simply “dress appropriately” for the environment you are going to visit. I completely disregard the statement that “first impressions don’t count” because it’s a false statement. First impressions do matter and the wardrobe that you choose for that first interview will allow you to open the main door; the rest is up to you.  Professionals must present themselves as such; a sanitation professional cannot show up to the first interview wearing dirty and wrinkled clothes, because if he/she cannot maintain his/her personal appearance, how will that person maintain the standards of cleanliness in the facility?

To all this – I believe in dressing appropriately for that first interview, nonetheless, that is only one aspect of it. How well you prepare for the interview, how much you know about the business you are interviewing for, how much confidence you show on that first conversation is what will guarantee you the next move to the second interview and to continue the selection process that will end with the presentation of an employment offer.

Transition summer pieces into fall | Como llevar ropa de verano en otoño

Fall trend

Don’t pack your summer cute pieces yet, instead, transition them into fall. Transitioning summer pieces into fall is more simple that you can imagine, which is perfect for me because I can’t give up on those cute warm-weather basics; not yet. So here are some tips to save you time and money:

  • The first thing to do is protect our summer basic pieces so their color and fabric don’t fade.
  • Your summer favorite basics are still looking bright, now to transition them into fall, just add layers. This fall it’s all about “Bohemian Chic” — which means layers upon layers. The best thing about that, is that you don’t have to give up on that cute dress that you used all summer long with sandals. Just remove the sandals and add your fall shoes.transition into fall

    how to protect your delicate clothes
    Dress: Forever 21 | Cover all: Marshall’s | Shoes: Shoedazzle
  • Got shorts? make them fall ready with the addition of opaque tights.
  • Scarfs are your best friends. Tuck your favorite scarf into your bag, because you know that before you know it, the sunny days will turn cool on you.
  • I got a lot of cute tees over the summer and the cool thing is that I don’t have to give up on them, I just throw over a cardigan. Cardigans provide just the right amount of warmth.

Imperfection is beautiful | La belleza de mis imperfecciones

“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Vanity Fair. I received product samples to facilitate my review and compensation to thank me for my participation.”curly girls are beautiful

There are a lot of things on my body that if don’t like, yes a lot, I think it’s a women’s problem. We tend to want and like what we don’t have and take for granted what we have. It took a long a long time to understand that imperfection is beautiful, that beautiful comes  from within. It is not that I NOW like the things that I didn’t like before, it’s just that learned how to make the most out of it and most importantly to focus on the thing I do like about my body. It is all about focusing on what you have and not about what you don’t have.

I think I’ve said this before, going natural did something to me, it was a sense of confidence that I didn’t have before, now I search for the right products and outfit that complements my figure and my personality. I never liked my back, I just think that I am way too petite to have a wide back (and arms) but I do, oh well!!. I like sexy bras, but let face it “sexy” bras not always have support especially in the back, it leaves my back looking like a sausage, you can’t have it all said my grandmom.

And then I met Vanity Fair (remember how I told you about it? read more here). Little did I know that you can actually have it all. Vanity fair beauty back bras help provide the confidence that I need all day long with a touch of elegance and incredibly functional.  The perfect combination of support in the front and in the back. You have to try it for yourself, so next time you are your favorite stores like Macys, Kohl’s, JCPenny, or Sears, try it for yourself.

vanity fair bra reviewThe designers at Vanity Fair are always scouting emerging trends and styles by taking inspiration from seasonal runway shows. The products at Vanity Fair are always stylish and trend-right and take advantage of developing styles based around fashion trends and colors, with an extensive assortment of sizing, including band sizes 34 – 44 and cup sizes B – DDD at a price that I can pay: Vanity Fair bras typically retail around $40 and panties typically retail around $9 for one pair.

Vanity Fair “Women Who do” | Conociendo mas sobre Vanity Fair

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Vanity Fair. I received product samples to facilitate my review and compensation to thank me for my participation.the perfect braIf you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat, you already know the great news to my blogging life; I am a brand ambassador for Vanity Fair, which basically means that I will be learning about the brand and the campaign “Women Who Do” and share it with you.

To be honest with you, I didn’t know much about the brand, but the brand was smart enough to fly me to New York City so I could learn and try out their products. Vanity Fair lingerie has been around for nearly 100 years, bringing support, lift, and elegance. Making style and comfort effortless for every woman, Vanity Fair offers feminine and beautiful lingerie available in styles that are on-trend yet incredibly functional..

best bra everJoanna Beddingfield, Vice President of Brand Management for Vanity Fair Brands, spoke about the brand and bra market. I was surprised to know that eight out of 10 women wear the incorrect bra size and Vanity Fair hopes to change that statistic by providing women opportunities to find the right fit. Yes, I was fitted by a Vanity Fair Fit expert for the first time ever. I was a little nervous, but it was a great experience. I was able to try different bras and at end, I chose the beauty back bra. This is the BEST bra I have ever tried, (you must try it to believe me, so I dare you to do it), smooth under clothes, no-poke underwire, and all around smoothing and shaping.  

Our body changes as we age and I was resisting it for a while, I was using the same size/style bra for years while compromising support, functionality and comfort. I finally got to understand that having the right bra size and style is priceless. I am super excited about this brand ambassadorship that already brought me the opportunity to fall in love with a bra, when I thought that all I loved were shoes, lol.

Find your perfect denim fit |Entalle perfecto en los nuevos jeans de Target

Consideration was provided by Target. affordable and perfect fit jeans

With denim, we know it’s not about fitting in. It’s about the fit. It’s about putting on a pair and knowing: these are my jeans. Unfortunately in my case, finding “the jean” can be quite a challenge, to be honest with you, I own literally 3 pairs of jeans, because I can’t find one that fits my needs. Either they make my tummy look too big and my butt flat, or they are too long and make me look like a Tamale.

And it’s not that I gave up, no, I have tried every pair of jeans I have seen whether I am shopping for jeans or not. I found some jeans that look fine on me and then I see the price and I have to battle between getting the jeans or shop for what I was there for in the first place. When Target invited me to try and participate in a 14 days challenge, I automatically said yes, but then I was really scared when I realized that I had to order my jeans online -something that I would never dare to do-

To my surprise, the new jeans available at Target July 16 are amazing, I love the way they fit and hug my body all in the right places. They will come in all sizes and washes with improved fits, fabrics and a pair for every body, made to be owned by you and fit your every expression no matter who you are, how you feel, what you do, or where you go.como combinar pantalones jeans

pantalones de mezclilla entalle perfectoI ended up falling in love with the Mid-rise Skinny and the Mid-rise jegging. This made me realize that my thing is mid-rise because they give me the right amount of pressure and support in my problem area, the stomach. For all the short girls up there, I have a great news for you, the jeans are available in 27″ long YESSS, you all know what this means.

So now it’s your turn; show everyone what you’re made of, starting July 16, you can find, try, and fit the unique shape and style of Target denim in the store to receive $10 off , for more info visit www.target.com/jeans and feel free to write your own reviews on Target.com.
