baby shower 2019

Hi babes, I’m FINALLY getting around to sharing my baby shower photos, I am a month late but here I am. I want to say thank you to my family and Bryant’s family as well for being a huge help to us and for the beautiful day we all spent together!

It was a crazy time as Bryant and I were moving into our new place all while planning our baby shower but I couldn’t have pictured it any other way. Spring in LA can be tricky because that’s when we randomly get cooler weather, it rains here and there or it’s windy. I was so worried because it was consistently raining every weekend before my baby shower and I didn’t have a second plan to follow so I was super lucky because that day the weather was warm and sunny!!

I wanted the decorations to be simple again just like my gender reveal and of course all DIY projects that my family and Bryant’s were able to help with. I was going to wait and share my baby girls name until after she was born but it’s so special to my heart so I went ahead and shared it at my baby shower.

The food was BOMB.com, both families cooked amazing dishes and we had food for days! My parents are from El Salvador and Nicaragua and both of Bryant’s parents are from Nicaragua so you can only imagine how good everything was! I originally wanted to go all out for my baby shower because that’s just the extra attitude in me but quickly changed my mind to have something more intimate as both families are huge plus it was all I really needed to have this special time. (I had a separate baby shower with friends, so still got to be extra! LOL)

I am so grateful for all of the gifts we received and we pretty much got everything that was on our registry. It’s so crazy and surreal to think how fast my pregnancy has gone by because it feels like it was yesterday when I found out I was pregnant and here I am now, a couple of weeks away from giving birth to my baby girl! She moves like crazy and it’s definitely going to be a bittersweet moment when I no longer have her in my belly but I’m also so excited and can’t wait to have her in my arms!

This journey is different for every mom but I have to give thanks for blessed I’ve been throughout this experience because it’s been easy to say the least, I’ve been able to workout throughout my whole pregnancy so all of this has been such an empowering moment.

I’ve also met sooooo many moms on Instagram who are currently pregnant or already have kids and it’s been awesome that we’ve been able to make these connections and give each other advice. I’m proud to be part of the mommy tribe so thank you to everyone who has been so helpful and genuinely care!

Delilah will be here very soon and I can’t wait to be the best mom I can be for her! I will continue to share this new journey even after she’s born. Stay tuned!

life transitions+ getting left behind

Hi babes, are you going through a life transition where you just moved in with your significant other? You recently got engaged and planning a wedding? Maybe you moved away from friends and family? You’re chasing your dreams and in my case it’s stepping into motherhood. The list goes on and on but you’re probably sitting there wondering what happened to your friends who were always there before? Hmm…

There are so many life transitions that one can go through and after listening to https://www.instagram.com/melissamolinaro/ Instagram story last week about having life transitions and seeing a shift in the people in your life who might leave you behind or kind of forget about you because of that transition you’re going through. Listening to her story really hit home and I was like yasssss girl, preach!!!!

Being that it hit home, it inspired me to write a blog post on it and of course base it on my own transitions. As you all know I am currently expecting my baby girl but before that, I was still living at home with my parents. If you come from a traditional latino household then you know how close we are to our families and we don’t move out until we get married or in my case taking that step to move in with my significant other and get ready for our baby to arrive. You can only imagine how all of these transitions were happening all at once. I moved in with my boyfriend which is great because now we were finally under one roof but at the same time I was missing my family. I’ve always been used to having my family around and I was now living an hour away from them and on top of that my hormones were everywhere from my pregnancy so you can only imagine how emotional I was feeling! LOL (btw, Bryant should win a medal for how he was able to deal with me being a cry baby)

Getting a little more into detail about what Melissa Molinaro was saying in her IG story, you see a shift in people when you are going through a transition. Melissa Molinaro is a new mommy herself and killing it, as she was saying just because you’re a new mommy you shouldn’t get left behind and forgotten by your friends and as soon as she said that, I was like YASSSSS girl!!! This is so true and I’ve seen it first hand with friends who have stopped reaching out. Why? Because I can’t go out and drink/ party?

My baby isn’t here yet but being pregnant doesn’t mean I can’t have fun without drinking. I might say no to certain things because I’m tired and literally falling asleep but having those friends who invite you anyway is important and shows a lot in their character of being a true friend. Like Melissa was saying, instead of assuming “oh, she’s a mom now so she’s going to say no” it’s important to be there for your friend who is going through any kind of life transition. I believe in being a real friend but if someone is only showing 50% then I call it like I see it and I choose to distance myself. I’ve seen this a lot throughout my pregnancy and I know it will continue as I transition into motherhood when my baby arrives so I want to say thank you to my friends who still make the effort to hang out, who continue to check in and make me feel like I haven’t been forgotten and left behind.

Any kind of life transition is already life changing so you want to make sure you have positive vibes around you! So with all of that being said, let’s kill it this week and reach our goals.

pregnancy journey and feeling positive

Hiiiii babes! I can’t believe I am now 34 weeks, my pregnancy journey flew by but it has been a great experience and definitely something to remember.

I love sharing my journey whether it’s good or bad and always bring it back to being positive through it all. I have to mention that my pregnancy has been easy compared to other stories I’ve heard so I’m very grateful for that.

I worked out for most of my pregnancy and now that I’m in my third trimester it has been a little more difficult to move around, my feet are beginning to get swollen and I haven’t been to the gym in about three weeks. It’s been a little difficult for me to accept that being that I would hit the gym 4-5 times a week but I’ve been listening to my body and trying to rest as much as possible. I’m only weeks away from giving birth to my baby girl and OMG let me tell you, I am excited and nervous at the same time!

I am definitely a planner and I like to have to things in order and ready to go or else I feel like I’m going crazy! LOL

This journey though, has taught me to go with the flow but most of all to be positive and grateful for everything that I’m going through because I’m getting the best reward at the end of it all!

I’m so happy to say that one thing I have stayed consistent with during my pregnancy has been creating content and styling my bump, it makes me happy to see the changes in my body and it’s something I can look back on and show my baby girl.

One thing I have noticed when I’m out shooting new content are the stares I get from other people and I won’t lie, at first it made me feel self conscious as my bump was growing but I quickly snapped out of it and learned not to care about the stares because my precious baby is growing inside and it’s a true gift to experience. I love embracing my bump and it makes me so happy when people take the time out of their day to give me a compliment in public as I’m shooting content and puts a big smile on my face. Always be kind!

This is a message to everyone, even if you’re not currently pregnant you should ALWAYS embrace your body type no matter what. Don’t be shy to wear that cute dress you have in your closet, those shorts you’ve been dying to wear etc. Do you babe and build that self confidence!!!

I want to take a minute to thank my girl gang for showing so much love throughout my pregnancy, I’m all about real connections and sharing that girl power! My girls threw me a cute little baby shower last week and OMG the weather was amazing!

We had such a fun time at the cutest place with rooftop vibes making me super happy for summer to come! I even got myself my first mocktail and it was YUMMY! The girls made me feel so loved and special, we’re all excited for baby Delilah to come! I linked their IG’s down below, give them a follow because they’re all boss babes. They all have amazing vibes and energies and how crazy is it to connect all because of social media!

getting out of your comfort zone!

Hi babes, are you a blogger/influencer who wants to get out there and mingle?! No, I don’t mean to date…LOL I mean when it comes to meeting other blogger babes or collaborating in general, going to events etc. My answer to that is JUST DO IT!

I remember in the beginning when I did my first couple of collaborations (going out to shoot with photographers and brands) I would get so nervous that sometimes I was so close to backing out and just saying I couldn’t make it!

It’s so easy to say no and turn down an opportunity but there are greater things that come with saying yes and following through. By saying yes to opportunities, you learn so much about yourself, what you like/dislike and the most important in my opinion is creating new relationships with people who have the same passion and ambition as yourself!

A couple of months ago, I put together a blogger brunch with six other girls and it all started with the idea of wanting to meet new babes and feel inspired again. I sat there looking through girls on Instagram that I was already showing love to and getting it in return so I reached out by DM and asked if they wanted to have brunch and we all clicked right away! That’s the beauty when stepping out of your comfort zone, you must be willing to put forward that confidence because if you don’t then no one will have it or show it for you.

Fast forward to now, we all keep in touch and we are in the process of hosting our second #labloggersocial event which is all about meeting new faces and empowering each other.

From our initial brunch, I began shooting with my friend Mayra who is the blogger behind https://www.instagram.com/styledbymay_/

We shoot content about every weekend since we met and it’s so cool to hit it off with someone who just gets you and is so helpful and genuine, so the purpose to all of this is to get out of your comfort zone! You want to be able to grow and meet new people out there, if it doesn’t work out that’s perfectly fine but it’s all a process in learning new things about yourself.

Mayra and I decided to wear a similar duster to show how it can be styled two ways and as a transition into spring.

It’s all about empowering each other as women, supporting each other because we’re all boss babes!


what NOT to do for Valentine’s Day!

It’s the week of Valentine’s Day, and the big question is…what will you be doing on that special day?

There are tons of ideas out there on where to go eat, gifting guides etc. but I will be sharing some past experiences as well as what you should NOT do only because I want to keep things realistic and easier for all of my couples out there!

Past experiences:

You all know how extra AF I am so in the past this included Valentine’s Day as well. I would put tons of pressure on Bryant year after year on what we would be doing because I wanted to get nice and dolled up but it was never realistic guys!!! Bryant and I would try going on fancy dinners and EVERY single place was always packed and most restaurants don’t even take reservations! I always remember one year specifically where we went to a Peruvian restaurant (which is my FAVORITE food everrrr) I was starving and ready to order my favorite dish but as we got there the wait was over an hour long so we ended up having dinner around 10-10:30 pm!! Like WTF! That’s just so insane to me and I remember being so grumpy, my stomach was growling, thank god Bryant is the opposite of me because he knows how to just laugh things off and go with the flow!

After that year I learned my lesson, I told Bryant he was right and that we should do more low-key things instead of trying to go the fancy route. The following year, I remember we had a sushi date to our favorite restaurant which is a hole in the wall but the longest we had to wait was about 20-30 mins which is a normal wait time like any other day and a better alternative to any fancy restaurant that will be a hassle to get into.

Since then, we have been getting better with our options and I no longer put all of the pressure on Bryant to plan something extravagant, I can just be extra myself any other day! LOL

This year: I am keeping things super low-key with Bryant, baby girl is on the way and being that I am currently 27 weeks, I get tired easily so we are doing something during the day instead (so happy we both got the day off) probably start off with the gym, grab lunch and be out and about for a little, order take out for dinner and watch a movie which is perfect for me! Oh and the best part is that we are getting pedicures together so I’m excited for that!

Don’t:

  • don’t stress about big plans
  • don’t go to big restaurants or wait for dinner (it’s the busiest time)
  • don’t fall for the hype on this day just because you see others doing something (no fomo)

Do:

  • find alternatives to do something special at home
  • something to do during the day
  • make it special in your own way

I hope you all have a good Valentine’s Day! If you don’t have a boyfriend, grab your girlfriends and get together for drinks, a movie or anything else that comes up!

Gender Reveal Recap

IT’S A GIRL!!!

I am over the moon with the amount of love I have been receiving from everyone throughout my pregnancy and it feels so good to finally know what I’m having.

I’ll be honest, when I first found out I was pregnant I thought I was having a boy because that’s all I could picture in my head. As weeks went by I started having a ton of dreams with having a little girl and from there I had a gut feeling it would be, and I was right!!

I am currently 26 weeks pregnant and as you all know, I announced my pregnancy on social media on the first of 2019 so I wanted to wait a little before I started planning all of the fun stuff.

When it comes to style, I envisioned my gender reveal to be very intimate, minimal and chic. I was looking on pinterest for months to get inspired and I decided to go with a garden theme to incorporate plants and flowers, and to start getting in the mood for spring.

I got tons of help from close friends and family to help bring my vision to life and I love that mostly everything consisted of DIY projects that were so easy to put together.

So let’s start off with the decorations, I was lucky enough that my boyfriend’s family had the perfect wooden design to create the flower wall I wanted. As you can see in the picture below, it was easy to buy flowers and just pin them all over and voila! The flowers that you see on the sides going straight down are from the Dollar Tree!!! Yassssss, they were each just $1! The white flowers you see hanging on the next row going in towards the middle are from Hobby Lobby and those were $2 each. The crown in the middle was another DIY that my boyfriend’s family had which was spray painted with gold and the plants and smaller flowers were added onto the crown for the final touch. So beautiful and creative, all ideas from Pinterest. The two bigger flowers next to the crown were handmade by my cousin and look even better in person! I bought the plants to put on top from Michael’s which were on sale for about $3 each and the final touch to my flower wall was the baby sign I found at Target for $5!! I was so happy with the outcome because I’ve always been one to preach about what’s affordable so this was right up my alley!

Food

I wanted everything at my gender reveal to be simple including the food so I decided to go with sandwich platters from Costco along with fruit platters aka all finger foods which turned out to be so convenient.

Desserts

All of the desserts were soooo yummy! My best friend got me donuts, I had another friend bake me cupcakes which were AMAZING and I also got pastries from Porto’s bakery, if you’re in the LA area then you know how good everything is there!

Our Reveal

My boyfriend ended up making this board all by himself from scratch which I thought was super cool and it was something he really wanted to do as I was getting everything else ready. As you can see there are 16 balloons so we had to pop each one until it was either pink or blue. He was going for boy and of course I was team girl but it was so fun to experience with our friends and family watching!

Floral Center Pieces

The center pieces were so beautiful and delicate, everything truly turned out the way I wanted it to and I can’t wait for my baby shower to come and continue sharing this whole process with all of you!


Baby girl is moving like crazy and my bump is growing more each week, it’s such a beautiful experience and I truly feel love and blessed!

5 things they didn’t mention about being a influencer/ blogger…

Hi babes, are you a influencer/ blogger or maybe looking to get started? Well I’m here to share five things they forgot to mention…

I’m going to share some tips and a quick story on how I started back in 2014 and OMG I can’t believe it’s been that long!

The number one question I always get asked, even to this day is how did I start blogging?

I simply started taking pictures of my outfits but it was so different back then, I had my first blog on blogspot and I remember uploading 10-15 pictures of the same outfit and describing my thought process on how I paired everything together which is INSANE you guys! I look back and see how much things have changed. My blog has shifted to a lifestyle brand and fashion will always be a part of me so I still post my outfits daily on Instagram.

https://www.instagram.com/segagenesis_/

  1. Time and effort for creating content
  • I would say one of the most important things when being a influencer/ blogger is taking the time and effort to create content. I have noticed a huge difference in my content and the quality of it. I’ve always bounced back and forth with using my phone and camera for pictures but for the past year and a half, my pictures have all been taken from my iPhone 7 Plus. You don’t need a fancy camera, you need good angles and good lighting, this has become my preference and it’s so much more convenient and feels more authentic to me.

2. Having tough skin

  • It’s important to be vulnerable and show emotion but at the same time I believe that being a influencer/ blogger, you must have tough skin because you’re exposing your life for everyone to see and not just that but your creative side. Before I decided to take the plunge into the blogger world, I was definitely a little nervous of how I was going to be perceived especially because there were already so many other bloggers out there. In that moment I remember saying, “I’m doing this for myself and because it’s something I love!” As the years have passed, I have grown in so many ways but I still remain with the same idea of doing this for myself because it truly is a passion of mine. The world can be a scary place but you can’t let that hold you back, so I challenge you to get out there and be fearless!

3. Create your own path

  • This is another huge tip in my book that I feel a lot of people forget to mention, I’m such a firm believer of doing what fits YOUR style and growing that into your brand and what defines you. When I started blogging I had around 1k followers and I remember comparing my Instagram to other girls who had way more followers and I found myself quickly realizing it just didn’t work for me. At the time, a lot of bloggers were posting flat lays of their outfits so I thought it was what I had to do in order to gain a following which then turned into stress/pressure to keep up with the same concept and forcing content that wasn’t me at all. I began cleaning out my Instagram and went back to focusing on my outfits. I’ve stayed true to my style since then which I would consider to be affordable yet stylish for the girl next door, it’s relatable which is 100% me! So what might work for someone else doesn’t mean it will work for you, follow your gut and your passion despite what anyone else is saying or doing, you got this!

4. Be consistent

  • You have to be consistent no matter what if you want to be a influencer/ blogger. People want to see their brand grow but slack off so you have to ask yourself if this is something you really want to dive into? When I started blogging back in 2014 I would post about three times a week and recently started posting once a week because I want quality content as I mentioned earlier, my blog has shifted into more of a lifestyle brand which includes fashion, fitness, places where you can eat and go out to. So although things have shifted and expanded into other areas, the consistency has always been there. Instagram is where I post daily and I love interacting through my stories so that people can feel like they can relate because I am just a regular girl. As your audience grows, they want to see your journey and follow along so being consistent is important. I’ve unfollowed tons of people who are not consistent on social media because it makes me feel like they don’t take it as serious. Remember that people follow you because they look forward to pictures, tips, etc.

5. Your time will come

  • I want to leave you all with this last point to leave things on a good note, to inspire you because there is no need to rush or compare your journey with someone else’s success. As cliché as it sounds, it truly helps when you keep doing you and most importantly having fun with it!! Being a blogger/influencer is meant to share YOUR passion, not to please others or imitate others. This shouldn’t feel as pressure to anyone because it defeats the entire purpose of it all. I quickly learned to go at my own pace and even though I don’t have a huge following like other influencers do, I still keep going because I’m doing it for the right reasons. I love connecting with others and being a open book because we’re all unique in our own special way.

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful, you can always leave a comment here, a DM via Instagram or a simple email if you want to chat it up!

Pregnancy Workout Routine

Heyyyy babes, omg I’ve gotten so many questions on what my workout routine is especially now that I’m pregnant because I find myself still living at the gym! What can I say, I love a good workout session!!

I can’t believe how time is just flying by because I am halfway through my pregnancy! Like what???!

But let’s get down to business…before my pregnancy I was hitting the gym and lifting heavy weights about 4-5 times a week, once I found out I was pregnant (around 6 weeks) I had to adjust my workouts completely to focus on the baby and I had to take it easy which meant no more pre workout to give me that extra boost of energy and also meant not being able to lift even half of the weight I was doing before. I’m going to be completely honest, it was a little difficult for me at first on all kinds of levels because I’ve always been used to pushing myself and increasing my weights to build muscle so I had to learn very quick how to mentally prepare myself that everything was going to take a turn and be more about staying active to maintain and have a healthy pregnancy.

My first trimester was easy because I didn’t have any nausea but I found myself uninspired to hit the gym because I noticed my body changing drastically so even though I didn’t share these moments on social media, I tried pushing myself to make it to the gym at least three times a week. What I found that worked for me was following fitness accounts on Instagram like https://www.instagram.com/fit.with.iulia/

https://www.instagram.com/yanyahgotitmade/

https://www.instagram.com/hopeisabelhoward/

just to name a few, they are all so badass who are also moms! Now more than ever it gives me that extra motivation to keep going. I have daily affirmations where I tell myself that being a mom is a beautiful journey and I will be back to my own fitness journey after having the baby. I am learning to embrace these changes and now that I’m not in that awkward stage of just looking bloated, I am fully proud to show my baby bump.

So here we are now, six months in and I’m doing the best I can to stay active especially because I heard it’s easier when it comes to the delivery and to bounce back as well so I’m all for it!!

Once I got into my second trimester I got tons of energy back, I wasn’t sleeping as much anymore so I bumped things up by going to the gym 4-5 times a week and I feel great now. I still have plenty of moments where I want to say no because it’s too cold, I’d rather stay in bed etc. The list can go on and on but at the end of the day they’re just excuses so I’ve made it a point to write what I’m going to workout each day in my planner and I just make it happen!

Current workout routine: (I will write an example of what my schedule looks like to make it easier)

Monday: (leg day)

  • Stair master 5-10 minutes then stretch / 8-9 exercises (I can’t use certain machines so I have to be very creative but I do a variety of exercises to target my hamstrings, quads and the good ol booty)

Tuesday: Cardio+Shoulders

  • Treadmill 15 minutes followed by shoulders (I like to use both, machines and use weights)

Wednesday: Cardio+Chest day

  • Treadmill 15 minutes followed by chest ( machines and weights)

Thursday: Cardio+Bicep/Triceps

  • Treadmill 15 minutes followed by arm workout (machines and weights)

Friday: Leg Day (same as above)

Saturday & Sunday: If i missed a day during the week then I come during the weekend and of course I make sure to have a rest day as well.

YouTube is a great way to learn different exercises and so much easier to follow along to get the right form and perfect to get a variety of exercises to make sure you’re switching it up!

To all my beautiful mama’s out there, you got this and it’s never too late to start!

**All of my workout clothes is from Forever 21, I sized up on my leggings to a size large and they are definitely squat proof! Tops are size small and medium.

all about girl power!

I hope everyone started 2019 off on a good note, I wanted to start off big so as you all know by now I announced my pregnancy on the 1st of January! I want to say THANK YOU because the amount of love I have been receiving is unreal!!! I am so grateful because I have made awesome connections that truly fill my heart with happiness which brings up my next topic…GIRL POWER!

I am all about having girl power and I wanted to take a moment and dive into this topic because now more than ever we spend most of our time on social media. We make friends or we feel like we know someone else because they are so relatable which is one of my favorite things about the social media world. I have met so many awesome and powerful women throughout the years and have had amazing opportunities because Instagram is a huge platform.

To me girl power is showing genuine love to someone else even through something as simple as commenting on their picture. When I use the word “genuine” I am referring to keeping it 100! If I see a picture that caught my eye, I give it a like and comment as well. If someone took the time to write a caption then I read it and comment something based on that. Why? Because it’s about creating a connection! I can spot a fake or half-ass comment from a mile away so showing some girl power comes with being genuine.

On the other hand, a lot of bloggers/influencers I follow keep their captions pretty simple, in those cases I like to hype up my girls. If they look bomb AF I let that be known, or comment something based on their outfit, the point is to show love. You can’t expect to be a influencer and only receive love because it goes both ways! If people take the time to stop by your page to show love and hype you up then make it a point to get back to everyone even if it’s a simple thank you but let them know that you acknowledged their comment.

Before 2018 ended I decided to step out of my comfort zone as I made it one of my goals for 2019 so I said why not start early so I planned a brunch and invited other influencers! I took the time to really notice what girls I was interacting with on Instagram and who was taking the time to show some real girl power and reached out to them via DM. To my surprise, almost all of the girls I reached out to were able to make it except for one or two. I put us all into a group chat, we decided on a place and time to meet and it was AMAZING! All of the girls had a good vibe and I could just feel the good energy all around us as we complimented each other, we were able to relate on so many levels and just have a good time! It’s crazy how all of that is possible with the power of social media. To this day, we all constantly show love to each other on Instagram, I’ve seen some of the girls that continue meeting up and as have I which makes me so happy!!!

I have added their Instagram handles as shown in the picture from left to right, check out their awesome pages and give them a follow!

I’ve been to plenty of blogger events where I start seeing the same group of girls and you would think that being a influencer would make you friendly but instead they are stuck up which is the total opposite of what they portray on social media. There is room for everyone out there and we’re all unique in our own special way so instead of competing let’s show some love and be all about girl power!

I am in the LA area and I definitely want to plan another brunch to get some badass babes together so if you’re in the area don’t be shy and let’s connect! I live for coffee dates, brunch or even getting together to shoot!

Special Announcement

Guys!!!! What better way to start off 2019 than with some BIG news right?! I’M PREGNANT!!! 

I can’t believe the time has come to announce the amazing news but I’m more than excited as I am already halfway through my pregnancy. I wanted to spend the first half of my pregnancy a secret with family and friends as I enjoyed all of the new changes that were happening in my life. I have tried to remain as active as possible with the gym and my daily routine, overall I must say it’s been super easy because I experienced zero nausea which helped tremendously! In my first trimester, all I felt was being fatigued and I wanted to take a million naps and of course the hormones that were going up and down. (My poor babe is a real one for dealing with me and my extra af attitude! LOL)

So now that the news is out, I can finally start sharing my experience and bring you all along for the ride! It’s a new year and I’m more than excited for everything that’s coming and I’m learning a ton as well. I’ve made it to the mom club so does that make me a MILF?! haha (duh)

I am so amazed with how much the body changes and in the past when I would hear other moms express themselves that way, I would just think duh of course it does but until you experience it for yourself OMG, it really does blow your mind away! I am most excited to share my experience physically with my fitness journey and for that snapback honey cause you all know I live in the gym but now it feels much more special to be healthy and to be a good example.

There will still be tons of fashion as it has always been a passion of mine to share but now I am excited for all of the new doors that will open. I wanted to keep this post light as I am just announcing it to all of you but I hope you can all follow me on this journey and continue to show your love and support because it means more than you know!
