TOP 10 MONOCHROME MAXI DRESSES.

OOTD: Wearing Maxi Dress from Zara.

I find maxi dresses to be very flattering for women of all different shapes and sizes. Me being petite, this kind of dress makes me appear taller and I love that these dresses have an effortless look to them! I styled my monochrome maxi dress, with a little edge. I added some black combat boots and a denim jacket. Very comfy and edgy, definitely up my alley! There are many other ways to style this kind of dress (with sneakers, sandals, booties) – it’s definitely a versatile piece to have in your closet.

These are 10 super cute monochrome maxi dresses to shop (a range of lower to higher end):

ORANGE HANDBAG FAVORITES.

What’s better than a cute, bright orange handbag to show off this Spring! My orange bag and scarf are both from aariink. This bag can be used for multiple occasions, whether it’s a night out on the town or just a casual day outing with friends. I love the shimmery, floral detail on it and how the pearls on the chain give it such a unique look. The orange and gold combination is so bold and can really bring together that amazing Spring look.

Shop a similar look:

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1519698887931?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

OOTD VIDEO FT GLISS | BELL SLEEVE TOPS.

I absolutely love the look of bell sleeve tops and I seem to always go for this style! I feel like they’re so different and bring out a more fashion fun look. It’s such a perfect look for Spring too!

My hair is another thing that I’ve really been focusing on lately. I’m setting a goal to grow my hair longer this year and I just recently tried out Schwarzkop Gliss shampoo and conditioner. I styled my hair with it and immediately loved the results! See me get ready with Gliss and Gliss my day away!

Shop a similar look:

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1519532882196?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

BOUQUET OF ROSES TO CELEBRATE LOVE.

I accept the bouquet of roses! Yes yes yes! I’ve been watching too much of The Bachelor!

Roses sure know how to brighten up a day..I can feel the love stemming right through them! Either shopping for roses and flowers or receiving them from a special someone, it’s always a celebration of love! I also love having them around my space any day.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, receiving a beautiful bouquet of roses is equivalent to little girl me excited for “Be My Valentine” cards. I’ll be spending this festive day with Mike. I’m not sure exactly what he has up his sleeve but I suspect he will be taking me to a place where we can paint and drink (I haven’t done that so that would be fun)! One things for sure, I know he will definitely be getting me a bouquet of long stemmed roses (that are half my size almost) to celebrate us! We’re each others favorite humans in this world and roses like these definitely make a statement!

FTD Flowers is offering my followers and readers 20% off! If you’re interested in gifting or treating yourself to some roses (vase also included), you can go here to: FTD Flowers They also have other varieties of flowers and roses.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you all enjoy this day either it be with your gals, pals, yourself, or loved one…celebrate your love this day and every day! xx

WINTER SKIN CARE FAVORITES.

I have chosen my top eight skin products that I absolutely love! These skin products have been my most recent skin essentials that I have added to my skin regimen and are very effective in keeping my skin radiant. These products make my skin feel and look better each day and I have seen some great improvements in the tone, texture and glow.

I’m becoming a lot more knowledgeable about what I apply to my skin to keep it looking and feeling fresh and clean. I’m always open to new products (with moderation) that can improve my skin and I’m excited to continue using these products and testing out others that can help my skin look even better!

Here is a list of my favorites I’ve been using:

  1. Botanic Farm Serum and Face Balm– Discount code: BEATRIZ20 for 30% off
  2. Derma E Face Oil
  3. 100% pure toner
  4. Julep Beauty Milk moisturizer
  5. Dermalogica SPF moisturizer & Dermalogica Cleanser
  6. Skin Ceuticals retinoid
  7. Ama.la toner
  8. Kiehl’s Vitamin C.

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: CORDUROY OVERALLS.

So not over overalls! I loved them as a kid, love them as an adult, and always will! You can dress them up and down, many ways of styling them. I paired my navy blue corduroy overalls with a denim off the shoulder and white mules to make the blues pop.

Other ways to style corduroy overalls – a rock or simple tee, mid riff sweater or turtleneck for layers, and a one piece (sleeve or sleeveless). There are many styles you can have fun and experiment with!

I put together some Corduroy Overall inspiration to shop:

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1516220593996?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

GOODBYE 2017, HELLO 2018! 5 THINGS I LEARNED.

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!

Day 1 consisted of a bad hangover, binge watching shows, and only getting up to get some Shake Shack to go…and I liked it! It was nice to stay in and have a day off (aside from the hangover)!

Day 2 is more like my Day 1! I’m feeling good and starting to get back into the swing of things! I also wanted to take a moment to reflect on the 5 things I learned in 2017. As I reflect, I’m so ready for 2018, starting fresh, and being the best me!

The 5 things I learned:

1. Be Healthy! It was the year I learned the meaning of healthy eating and actually took it more seriously. I’ve started to take more care of myself in this department by having more smoothies, remembering to have 3 good meals a day, healthy snacking, drinking more water, and taking my daily vitamins! I have a weakness for sweets so I had to also learn to minimize my portions (instead of 5 cookies, have 2!). I became overall more educated on food and have taken more action on making nutritious meals and exercising for a healthy lifestyle!

2. It’s ok to say No! I learned that it’s not the end of the world if you say ‘No.” It can be with a life decision, to a person, a work opportunity, anything! Time is precious. For me, running my business LiveLoveWearIt, is work from when I wake up, to when I sleep, that I absolutely love and do with so much passion! This past year, I’ve grown and become more sure of myself and what LiveLoveWearIt is about. I’ve learned that it’s ok to say no and to say it confidently.

3. Family is everything! I’ve always known the love and power of a family. This past year I felt it more than ever. It made me re-realize how AWESOME they are and I want to spend more time with them! These are the people who I wan’t to have more adventures with! Which brings me to..

4. Be grateful! Taking a moment to think about all that I do have makes me feel so grateful and grounded. I learned that I should take more moments like this on a more regular basis. This has also opened my eyes to seeing beyond me. I’d liked to be more involved with helping others and making our earth a better place.

5. Let it go! Like everyone, I experienced those ups and bumps in 2017. Loved the ups and learned from the bumps. More so, it took me some time to understand and learn to let go of those bumpy moments! To not dwell and let go what doesn’t serve me. Letting go means more happiness, self love, and shinning bright!

WINTER SKINCARE SURVIVAL TIPS FT DOVE.

Happy to be Sponsored by Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant. All opinions are my own!
Tracking Pixel

Just now, I literally applied some hand cream as I turned my attention from the TV back to my computer screen. This made me kinda giggle because as I applied, I re-read my title to begin this post…the Winter skincare survival… really is real!

Tis’ the season where my skin gets very very sensitive, dry, and sometimes even irritated. If you’re like me, you know this is not jolly at all! I get this common problem especially in my hands, face, and underarms. It is so easy to get side tracked and not pay attention to our skin until it’s itching for help.

Winter after Winter, I’ve been getting so much better at preparing for the change of weather and staying on track of these skin problems. I’ve found simple solutions that have helped me personally nourish the areas and protect my skin. I’ve also incorporated them to my beauty, fashion, and daily regimens.

The following are my 3 tips for Winter Skin Care Survival:

  1. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant – I definitely have my Dove product favorites and this is one of them! I’ve been trying it out and I love it.  It provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection that it keeps me fresh all day. Smoother and softer underarms are the key benefits I get. I apply Dove Advanced Care in the mornings after I do my hair and makeup. I also bring it with me in my bag to apply later in the day. It’s a perfect travel size, (fits in most of my bags) otherwise, I leave it in my car.

Dove Dermatologist, Dr. Alicia Barba, shared – “Underarm skin is sensitive and an area that shouldn’t be overlooked. Textures and fabrics in sweaters, undergarments, and t-shirts can irritate the skin.”

Keep hydrated underneath all those layers!

  1. H20 – This is a key tip I often give! I must always have water by my side. Funny thing, I rarely see people around me, including friends and fam, having water or maybe it’s just me who gets extra thirsty for water. I’m that person who always has one drink of whatever and a glass of water with it. I keep a glass on my vanity and desk areas. I also take a water bottle with me in my bag, car, pretty much everywhere! I sometimes get dryness around the mouth and lip areas and this is essential for skincare surviving!
  2. Moisturizer – For all of the above! From hands, skin, to the body. I constantly find myself needing to moisturize especially my hands. Keeping moisturizers on my desk, in my bag, car, and makeup bags is super essential! I’m such a germaphobe, I tend to wash my hands a lot, so I’ve started to keep hand sanitizers around these common areas, as well, to minimize washing my hands. I apply moisturizer after to soften and hydrate.

Dove Dermatologist, Dr. Alicia Barba, shared – “Bed time is the best time to hydrate your skin. If you’re looking to decrease collagen breakdown, you may want to consider these three quick steps before hitting the hay: 1. Wash your face. 2. Apply a retinol. 3. Moisturize.”

Sticking to these basics have helped my skin through the dry Winter season! What are some of your favorite tips? Xx
