Champagne Mama: Look of the week!

They call me “Champagne Mama” haha

No, they really don’t but that’d be HILARIOUS!

On all seriousness though, how much of a life saver is champagne if you’re into staying slim & fit?!

Did you know four ounces of champagne is roughly 90 calories? That’s less than your average glass of wine

Yes, bachelor lovers. Switch the wine to champagne next Monday and save yourselves MAD cals!

It’s worth it.

And so is this comfy sand color “champagne vibes” shirt for your brunch dates!

I suck at dressing casual, so I’ve been really trying to “up” my casual game. I mean, Ryan cannot keep up otherwise

I always look for something that represents who I am. I don’t know, it just boosts my confidence level

I mean, fashion is art after-all. And my art needs to be the shit. I’m not settling.

I can’t just wear some random shirt that says nothing I can relate to. I don’t care if it costs a grand, it’s trash to me.

Just being real.

Here’s the link to get your next favorite brunch shirt.

P.S. If you’re getting married and looking for “bridesmaid” shirts and “bride” shirts, they have them, too!!

They also have the cutest freaking mugs on the planet. I’m a sucker for mugs.

 Check them out 🙂

I feel like I need to get these next time haha!

I hope you guys enjoyed this week’s look! H

Have a safe/fun/AWESOME fourth of July weekend!!

A happy life starts with a happy mind: My steps to living a happier life

A happy life starts with a happy mind

So here are some tips, as I share this look of the week on how I maintain a happy mind

Let me start by saying, I have challenges and struggles just like everybody else

Life throws so many lemons at you and sometimes you just don’t feel like making a freaking lemonade!

 But it’s important to keep in mind that no matter how we react to our challenges, it’s our ACTION that will give us the end result we so desire

Worrying, stressing, yelling, crying, or depressing over ANYTHING is really only going to make matters worse

So anytime I am stressing, I try to first vent it out with someone that genuinely cares about me

Vent it out, BE OPEN about your problems

Once we say things out loud and they are no longer just in our heads, the problem tends to seem smaller

Talk it out with a friend, family member or someone you trust

That’s what having a support system is for! And it’s crucial for sanity. TRUST ME.

Step number II: FIND YOUR ZEN

If you are overwhelmed or filled with anxiety. You need to find your zen!

For some, like myself, it’s the gym! I work out 10x harder when I’m stressed out

The gym becomes my temple. It’s a place I can leave all my anger inside and walk out feeling renewed

For others, it can be yoga, daily meditation, a walk in the park, reading a book…

What’s your zen?

Step III: Fuel your soul

This is an important one. Most people don’t stop to find their zen (step II).

Therefore, they are not in tune with their soul

When I say “soul,” I mean your inner-self.

We have all jobs. Some that we love, some that we don’t love.

And because of that, it’s important to find time during the week to dedicate to something that makes you soul smile

Mine is blogging, being one with nature. Giving back in some sort of way.

I notice anytime I’m outdoors near nature, I feel re-energized.

I get the same feeling when I give back or make a difference in someone’s life.

Find what fuels your soul.

And lastly, find something to be grateful for everyday.

We may think this is an easy one or we think about it at least once a day, therefore, we are grateful

I used to think the same way but it’s not the same

Dedicate time, whether in the morning before you have breakfast or at night before you sleep

And say your prayers or thank God (the Universe), whoever you believe, for the things you are grateful for

It’s life changing.

These are some of the steps I take to have a happy mind, so that I can therefore, live a happy life.

I hope you enjoyed it!

Look of the week: Denim everything, please!

DENIM EVERYTHING

After a long week of rain, all I’ve been thinking about is how we finally get beach weather this weekend

(PRAISE.THE.LORD)

Yesterday, I was so inspired by how nice the weather was that I re-organized my entire closet with summer clothes

It took me over four hours, and 3 bags of clothes I never use. Which is now donated.

I feel like my room lost 100 pounds LOL!

I’m also moving in a few months, so I like to slowly get myself ready. You know, so I don’t drive myself insane.

BUT that’s a story for another day

As I was going through my summer clothes..I found this denim gem and needed to share!

Denim anything is worth sharing, specially when it comes with a choker and is perfect for a beach party 😉

This denim gem can be found HERE.

Of course, prior to these double d’s, they would’ve looked more “descent”

So pick your crop tops wisely or show off what you got.

Whatever makes you comfortable!

This is something I’d feel comfortable wearing to a pool or beach party at night

It definitely fits the role

You can also pair it with a white flowy skirt, too

IMMEDIATE HIT, no doubt.

Lately, I’ve been really adventurous with my style

I want to try different things and see what works and what doesn’t work for my new body

It can be a stressful process or a pleasing process

It’s all in how you look at it

I get girls everyday checking my posts from my surgery

So this one is for you, ladies!

Don’t be afraid to explore your new style.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s look!

Again, find this crop top HERE.

Also, check out this cute bodysuit HERE. Another major obsession of mine.

Have a great weekend babes!

Top shorts trending for 2017: Wishlist

TOP SHORTS TRENDING FOR 2017

______________________________________________

Obviously, we are never getting summer weather in Boston until a month before summer is over

So really, what is the point? LOL!

Just kidding (kind of)

But shorts have become such a big fashion staple lately

And since I’m currently seeking out some new shorts for this year

I figured I’d share some of the top shorts trending for this summer! 🙂

Let’s start with PRINTS ON PRINTS ON PRINTS. And did I say, prints?

Oh, and pom pom everything this summer.

From colorful to all one color, you can’t go wrong.

Just perfect for summer!

(>POM POM SHORTS DIRECT LINK<)

Ripped frayed denim shorts

ALL.DUH.YES!

These are a must for everyone’s closet

You can pull this style off with anything and look hot AF

(>RIPPED FRAYED DENIM SHORTS LINK<)

Lace ups are not just for shirts and shoes anymore

Lace up shorts are becoming the HOTTEST trend this summer

This site has many styles to choose from

But I love the details on this one.

(>LACE UP SHORTS LINK<)

Low rise distressed denim shorts

Could you die?

How do I not have this in my closet yet?

Need this in my life. And so do you.

(>DISTRESSED DENIM SHORTS LINK<)

Contrast fishnet shorts

You know you saw this coming!

Fishnets are finally in again

I tried bringing them back for so long

And they are finally back in style.

Another tip for fishnet usage: Wear them under your ripped jeans.

(>FISHNET SHORTS LINK<)

And last but NOT least, appliques are BAAAAAAACK

Remember when you were a kid and obsessed over them?

Or was it just me?

haha!

2017 brought it back

It’s hippie, it’s fun, we love it.

WRAP YOUR HEAD AROUND THIS

When someone tells me they still drive to the mall to shop…

Whyyy thoughhh?!

The older I get, the wiser I get with my time

Time cannot be bought, nor wasted

I get the same “high” shopping online, as I would going to the mall, minus the stress of waiting in lines

It’s a no-brainer, for me.

I believe the main reason a lot of people hesitate to shop online is the fit

And I agree. You have to pick your stores wisely.

This satin wrap dress was risky

I didn’t know if a medium size would fit or be slightly loose

But it fit like a glove

Wrap dresses are the new sexy trend, they just hug your body in all the right places

I paired mine with nude heels, beige bag and a turquoise necklace.

So freaking cute (I know I know. I’m bias)

Your next date or date night would probably DIE if you showed up in this dress

Let’s be honest

You’d be WINNING the moment you walk up to him.

Okay. You’re probably tired of hearing me talk about this sexy piece and want to check it out for yourself!

So CLICK HERE for the link, girl!

😉

Happy Shopping!
