Her, in the Red Dress


Do you ever have some days where you just feel like dressing up? As much as I would like to (and those who know me can definitely vouch for me), I would love to wear workout clothes every day of the week. However, there's a flip side where I love getting glamorous and throwing on a form-fitting dress with pumps. This particular dress is also a great go-to date night piece. 

Oddly enough, I wore this dress to a cocktail event for my beau's business and it's just one of those outfits that makes you feel like a million bucks wherever you are.

Birthday Suit







Yesterday marked the anniversary of the day I was born (someone told me that we no longer celebrate birthdays, but anniversaries). Honestly, I wasn't going to celebrate this birthday whatsoever. I'm usually that girl who plans an entire monthly series of birthday events, but this year I just wasn't feeling it. Despite my "negative Nancy" attitude, the man had my birthday planned out for me which was actually a breath of fresh air. I didn't have to do anything, but get dressed and simply...go. Then I began to realize I should be grateful for life's blessings and another year to be present. It's refreshing to start a new chapter of my life and I'm excited to see what's in store for me next.

Kia Soul





Let's be completely honest here. I experienced the 2016 Kia Soul Crossover quite some time ago, but it was somehow tucked away in the archives. However, that doesn't take away from the overall experience. The vehicle essentially caters to you digitally, as it controls your smartphone, music, entertainment, etc. It's also perfectly "cool mom" approved, with its Designer Collection exterior colors and sleek body molding. I was also rather impressed with the size, as I was expecting it to fit those who are similar to a hamster (like the commercials). It's actually extremely spacious and smooth to cruise around Miami in.

Chasing the Wind







Ladies and gentlemen, I have discovered the most comfortable pants in the world.

Now that Summer has arrived, and we have officially entered the sweatiest time of year in Miami, wearing loose-fitting or flowing pieces has been essential. I found this uber comfortable pair of palazzo styled pants at Express, and let's just say we have become lovers. They're perfect for day or night, paired with a crop top or bodysuit. What are some of your must-have pieces for the Summer?

Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible

 Let's just say having the option to keep my butt cool throughout the day has made quite a difference in my daily driving routine.



The Ford Mustang GT convertible and I have a very nostalgic connection, as my mom owned two variations of them throughout my childhood and I've learned to appreciate the vehicle inside and out. Over the past week, I've had the opportunity to experience the all new 2016 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible and its updates are incredible. As you all may know, I am a major fan of a powerful engine and the Ford Mustang is well known for having such. Aside from the obvious engine, the new model not only has heated but cooled seating (which is a must in Miami) as well. Let's just say having the option to keep my butt cool throughout the day has made quite a difference in my daily driving routine.

It also features six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that allow you to override the automatic operation and enjoy the sporty performance feel of a manual operation. The exterior styling speaks for itself, with its sleek and sporty look that gives a classy yet sexy appeal. I also love that there is enough seating space in the rear to fit my 4-year-old son without sacrificing my cool mom points. Overall, this vehicle is perfect for cruising Miami Beach during the summer.

A Path to More Youthful-Looking Skin



This post is sponsored by Sculptra® Aesthetic. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

To be completely honest, I've been notorious for neglecting my skin in the past. It wasn't until a few years ago that I really started looking into proper skincare tactics and how it helps the aging process. In my head, it was always assumed that I would look like I was 16 throughout my entire life. It sounds good, doesn't it? Over time, I've learned that anti-aging can be subtle. It doesn't have to involve an extreme face-lift, leaving you with the "I'm surprised all day" look.

On March 15th, I had the pleasure of meeting with two incredible dermatologists Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera and Dr. Flor Mayoral to learn about Sculptra® AestheticSculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles. It's not a drastic overnight procedure, so don't expect to go from drab to fab instantly. However, its gradual process leaves the overall appearance looking natural and lasts up to two years.* The primary ingredient in Sculptra Aesthetic is biocompatible and biodegradable, made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (which is naturally absorbed by the body). 

Essentially, the doctors explained that it works to help restore collagen that we lose with the aging process. Therefore, the skin's architecture is reinforced and gives a refined, more youthful-looking appearance by restoring shallow areas or deep wrinkles that deplete over time. This is a different treatment approach than what a patient gets with neurotoxins or HA fillers. It has also been shown to last up to* two years. Dr. Aguilera and Dr. Mayoral, two of the top Dermatologists in South Florida, believe in this treatment approach and offer it to their patients nearly every day!

*Clinical study ended after 25 months.

GapFit






Let's face it - Summer is right around the corner. With bikini season in full-effect, I've upped my workout routines and activewear of course. The elevation of sportswear that has emerged over time, has become quite dominating in today's world of fashion. However, it's rare to find stylishly comfortable workout clothes...until now. I've teamed up with GapFit to share quite possibly your new favorite activewear. What I love so much about their sportswear is that it's built with wicking which allows one to stay dry during workouts (major key), its four-way stretch capabilities, compression, and breathability. After all, us ladies need to keep everything in place while still being able to breathe during workouts.

Windex®

Spring is here, and that ultimately means one thing in my household…plenty of messes to clean up. My son has somehow reached the age where it’s okay to create hurricanes throughout our house, with ease. I have glass tables throughout my house, which are constantly covered in Play-Doh, cookie crumbs, toy cars, and random stickers my son likes to leave behind as little surprises for me I assume. 

For today’s post, I’ve teamed up with Walmart to share one of my all time favorite cleaners for pretty much anything, Windex® OriginalGlass Cleaner. Windex® Original Glass Cleaner is not only America’s #1 glass cleaner*, but its use is endless. It can be used for windows, mirrors, sealed granite and marble, glass shower doors, chrome bathroom fixtures, lucite, tile, plastic, vinyl, and aluminum. There’s videos on YouTube with several different uses for Windex®, surprisingly. Windex® brand products are available in the Home Cleaning section at Walmart, which is extremely easy to find. If you have kids like me, this is a must have at all times!
