It's a GIRL!!!!

We're having a baby girl!!!! You guys, this post has been a long time coming. I first found out the gender at 17 weeks, before I even announced my pregnancy. It was right before Christmas, and I remember going to the mall with my mom. We were at Zara, and she picked out the cutest little pink eyelet top for the baby. She bought it and I asked her how she could be so sure, she just said she knew, moms sense these kinda things.  From the moment I found out I was pregnant both her and my husband were like "it's a girl." I had a feeling too since this pregnancy has been so different from Sebastian's. That day I had a doctor's appointment, and right after seeing the ultrasound I had the urge to know for sure. I called my mom and we headed back to the mall, where they perform the 4D ultrasounds. The tech told us it was indeed a baby girl. That was the first time Sebastian saw her, and he was all excited. I swear she even waved at us lol. We called everyone, and celebrated with pizza and movies afterwards. I didn't opt for a gender reveal because I don't like surprises, and I love the idea of sharing these intimate, precious moments with my family.
At my 20 week scan, the doctor confirmed the gender and that's when I was fully convinced. At the end of the day, we just care for a healthy baby, but the fact that we have our boy and pretty soon our little girl is just so amazing. Irven even bought her her first little tutu and bow, needless to say he's thrilled haha. I can't wait to see how Sebastian will be to her, although the thought of him being a big brother is still so surreal.

Mexicali Dress

Happy Saturday! If there's one thing I love it's flowy fun dresses. They take no effort to put together and  I always go for them when I can't think of anything to wear. I wore this dress out to lunch with my mom and Sebastian last week. We came across the cutest little cafe in Long Beach called "Vibes," definitely recommend if you live in the area!  While shopping for clothes lately, I mostly look for pieces that can work even after the baby is born.

Winter in LA

You guys, I'm so over this weather. Living in SoCal has made us so spoiled, where we can't handle the temps dropping below 60 degrees, much less rain. Shooting pictures has been such a fail. We even tried to shoot the gender reveal this past weekend, when it randomly started pouring, and this was after I had checked the weather app and it said it wasn't going to rain. It just makes it so hard to function and I'm more than ready for it to go back to being Sunny all year round. I've been wearing all my cozy knits and booties nonstop. I always like to stock up after Christmas because that's when the best sales are! Sweaters also never really go out of style so I love being able to add on to my collection even with the growing bump. I usually size up for an oversized fit and that's been working great with the belly.

DHC Super Long Mascara EX

Hi guys! If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw my post about this new mascara I got the chance to try. But for those of you that don't I didn't want you to miss out on this AMAZING product so decided to share it on the blog as well.
So I got to try the new DHC mascara and it has seriously become a game changer in my makeup routine! My lashes have never looked longer and fuller. Other mascaras have thinned my eyelashes, but the new Super Long Mascara EX even has a nourishing complex of vitamin E, algae-derived extract and silk protein that help fortify your lashes.

These are my lashes before/after trying the new DHC Super Long Mascara EX! It makes such a difference, and I really love that it added length and volume without feeling heavy and looking clumpy. 

I use this Eye & Lip Makeup Remover and Silky Cotton pads to gently remove my eye makeup before bed. The makeup remover is made with coconut oil to moisturize, and the squares are made from 100% cotton wrapped in a silk blend and won't snag on your lashes or brows. It was really easy to get all the mascara off and not one of my lashes were damaged in the process. You can buy them (here).

The mascara is water resistant and lengthens the lashes by combining three lengths of fiber for a high-impact look. The curved brush makes it easy to apply with precision while adding a gentle curl. You can purchase it  (here).

Thank you to DHC for sponsoring  today's post! All opinions are my own.

Striped tie front top

Happy Friday and first of the month! I swear it felt like January lasted forever, I kept feeling like I had to play catch up and couldn't wait for it to be over. I love the thought of a new month and new goals to be set. I want to focus on posting a couple more times a week which means creating more content on my free time. The blog has been getting an awesome response this past month and I wanted to thank everyone that still visits every day even though I don't get to update it daily, it truly means the world! I finally feel like I'm getting to dive back into it and it's such a great feeling. I have so many fun collabs in the works and can't wait to share with you all. Hope you have a great weekend and thanks again for stopping by.

Graphic Band Tee

Loving graphic tees lately, they're so easy to throw on and make any outfit look "edgy" although of I'm being completely honest, I'm such a poser considering I've never actually listened to any band. 🙈 But they're still super cute and I wanted to share this one that is currently 60% off making it only $9!!! Rounding up a couple other favorites on sale at the moment.

Olive Moto Jacket and transitioning into Maternity Jeans

 Jacket: Vici Dolls | Jeans: here

It's safe to say my latest obsession is jackets. With sooo many sales going on, it makes you wanna snag every item that's 50% off. This faux suede jacket is super soft and lightweight, making it ideal for our "winter" weather in SoCal. I paired it with these skinnies, that just so happen to be maternity, can't even tell right? My whole pregnancy with Sebastian I refused, I used to think "pregnant lady clothes" were for older ladies and just not cute, so I practically only wore dresses and would go 1 size up or stick to my normal size if they were stretchy. It was easy because I was pregnant over summer and no one wants to wear jeans during that time of year anyways. This pregnancy, I noticed myself not fitting into my jeans way earlier, I'm talking 16 weeks early. I was at work one day and when I went to the bathroom to pull my pants down I saw the concealed hook hanging and the fabric had ripped. That night I went online and ordered maternity jeans, pants, shirts and leggings. To my surprise everything I found was super cute and on trend. I literally want to wear these jeans even after the baby comes, I just love the cut and color they're exactly what I've been looking for before I even got pregnant. What I also really liked is that they only have the side panel technically making them wearable post baby until I can fit into my old jeans again.

Button up flowy dress & a Leather Jacket

| Dress: Zara | Booties: Vince Camuto  | Jacket: BCBG

Happy Saturday!! The sun is out and it seems as if everyone is back to functioning normally again, myself included. I wanted to share this dress I got at the Zara sale, can you guys believe it was only $19! I sized up to make it work with the growing bump but I kinda feel like it wasn't necessary, the fit alone is very lose. A lot of their sizes are sold out online but I would definitely recommend heading to the store if you don't mind searching through the racks. About my leather jacket, I just got it for Christmas! I wanted it since I was working at Bloomingdales, but since I was there during spring/summer seasons, I really had no need for it at that time. I had somehow forgotten all about this one until I started looking online last month, some are just outrageously priced! I seriously wouldn't spend over $500 on a jacket, designer shoes or a bag yesss all the way, but I don't feel that a clothing item is justifiable when you can get a similar quality piece for a couple hundred less. Not to mention when you buy it full price and see it on sale a couple months later. Anyways, this jacket is a really good investment piece, the price isn't too bad and it's even 30% off right now! I also linked some more affordable options I'm currently loving. Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Winter Neutrals

Coat: Zara | Bag: Neverfull MM | Shoes: Louboutin | Turtleneck: Express | Jeans: Charlotte

It's been constantly raining for the past week already, and I couldn't be more over it. You know the drill, new year, new plans to be more productive and get sh*t done. Although I haven't been able to shoot any outfits, I've utilized my time at home to start decluttering. I started watching "Tidying Up" on Netflix and that's finally what it took to get me motivated to go through literally everything. I'm the biggest hoarder, I still owned clothes from over 10 years ago, that I'm most likely never going to wear again. And don't even get me started with Sebastian's clothes, from the time he was born, whenever he'd run out of space in his closet I'd just go through it, put everything in a bag, and have Irven store it in the attic. Baby clothes are so much more special though, and with the second baby coming, I'm kinda glad I still have all his things. I realized I don't need to hold on to every single one of his onesies and have started purging his stuff as well. I also got rid of my tv stand that was used to store even more of my clothes, and now I get to order a new one and keep it strictly for decor. Fast forward to almost a week now, I'm still not done, but our place is already looking so much better and organized. I now know where everything is and it feels sooo good not having to spend 10 minutes looking for one thing. 

While going through my clothes I realized out of most of the things I own, coats are probably the one article of clothing I didn't have to get rid of. If you invest in a good classic piece, it's never going to go out of style and you'll be able to get so much wear out of it. I really loved this structured masculine coat. I paired it with my new shoes and bag that have been at the top of my wish list for years now. I first wanted the leopard So Kates back about 3 years ago, but wasn't sure if they were worth the investment. This year that leopard made a comeback, I was like I have to get them! It's the perfect neutral. After they arrived, I was debating whether or not I should keep them or resell them since they're pretty much sold out everywhere. I couldn't help but feel buyers remorse but decided they looked way prettier in my closet and can't wait to style them endlessly.

Ruffled Dress

Tuesday, January 1, 2019


What better way to welcome the New Year than by sharing the very exciting news that we're expecting baby #2 this Spring in late May!!!! We couldn't be more thrilled about the new addition to our family. I really wanted to take some time off right after I found out, hence why I wasn't really posting on here and Instagram. I was lucky enough to leave a job and have a one month break in between.  This pregnancy has been nothing like when I was pregnant with Sebastian, I had it so easy with him! I've been having the worst migraines, nausea, and insomnia. Nevertheless, I couldn't be feeling any more grateful and happy to be able to experience this again. Being a mother is such a blessing and while the thought of 2 scares me, I also can't wait to have both of my babies here! Sebastian is definitely sensing the changes, he feels my growing belly and when I tell him "baby" he leans in and kisses it, he's seriously the sweetest little boy!! I'm so thrilled to share more of my journey this time around and would also like to include more of motherhood on the blog.
