Get to Know the Birthday Girl

Happy Valentine's Day! Today I celebrate my 29th birthday! I thought it would be fun to share 29 things about me that you may not know. Number 29 is my favorite. ;)

BRB, time for some bubbly.
  1. I was born in the Bronx, NY and lived there most of my life. I also lived in Florida, Virginia, Kazakhstan, and now South America.
  2. I LOVE TV! Some of my most favorite shows are The Vampire Diaries, Law and Order: SVU, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, The Flash, and Jane the Virgin. 
  3. I used to hate coffee. I started to love it living in Kazakhstan and now that I have the Ninja Coffee Bar, I'm completely obsessed!
  4. Realistically, I prefer flats over heels.
  5. My first "big girl buy" was for my 20th birthday. It was a Coach limited edition signature stripe bag. It's currently in storage.
  6. I haven't had soda, like Coke or Pepsi, in almost 10 years. 
  7. I am the queen of pancakes! I make the best banana chocolate chip. 
  8. My favorite ice cream flavor is cookies and cream. 
  9. I married my high school sweetheart. We met at Blockbuster when I was 15. 
  10. I love everything Parisian. My husband surprised me with a trip to Paris for my birthday last year. 
  11. I went to high school in the south Bronx and would stay home every Halloween because I was afraid of getting egged. LOL

  15. I have 2 sisters and 2 brothers.  
  16. I love to sleep, but get annoyed at myself when I wake up late.

  21. If I had to choose between wine or beer, I'd choose champagne. 
  22. I like my steak medium rare.
  23. If I could only live with one makeup product it would be concealer.  
  24. My 3favorite stores for shopping are Zara, H&M, and Forever 21. 
  25. One piece of clothing I can't live without? Skinny jeans. 
  26. My husband truly is my best friend. We have the best times together. 
  27. I love cupcakes and macaroons! But I hardly eat them. :(  
  28.  We leave for Panama City, Panama tomorrow for birthday celebrations!! I can't wait!   

Floral Walls and Short Shorts

Cotton Shirt/Shorts: H&M (old), Clutch: Clare V., Espadrilles: Aldo (old), Hat: H&M $13

Hey guys! Lately I've been doing my best with creating new looks with pieces I already have in my closet. No idea why I never put this one together before, especially since I've had both pieces for years. This same cotton top was worn a few outfits ago in a very similar outfit. (See the look here!) I like how this look seems a bit more flirty with the pop of color and higher heel.

This straw hat from H&M has also been on repeat for the past few looks and I don't see myself putting it down anytime soon.

I hope you guys enjoy this look! As always, you can shop the look below. :)

Get Ready w/ Me x Makeup Tutorial

Happy Thursday everyone! I'm so excited to share my first Get Ready w/ Me (slash) makeup tutorial post with you guys today! Over the years I've received tons of makeup questions and I've done beauty posts in the past, but today I wanted to do something a little bit different and (hopefully!) more helpful. 

This look has been a go-to for me for months now. It's an everyday look that is quick and easy. This is the exact makeup look that I wore in my latest outfit post, Totally Tropical

Now, this is a Get Ready w/ Me post so apologies for the crazy hair. ;)

I hope you enjoy!

Step 1:

First, I start with my face. I moisturize, then apply a primer all over. Next comes foundation. Recently I've been using 2 foundations, different brands and colors, to create the perfect shade. Revlon's PhotoReady Foundation is my FAVORITE, I use the shade 006 Medium Beige. I mix one pump of that with a small drop of  L'oreal Infallible Pro-Glow in shade 209 Caramel Beige. I brush that mixture on all over and blend with a Beauty Blender.
