How To: Blogger Photoshoot on iPhone 7 Plus

Happy Tuesday loves, it’s a new week and now more than ever I am putting my positive attitude into practice! I have been getting back into the swing of things, I am currently sore from yesterday’s workout so things are good. LOL

I want to start sharing my tips and tricks because I get lots of questions on how I run my blog, my photoshoots with collaborations or how I style my outfits in general etc.

To start off, I want to share how I’ve been taking my pictures lately when it comes to sharing my outfits on Instagram. We all know the buzz on the iPhone 7 plus, I got it at the end of last summer and it’s honestly way better than carrying around a big camera. I love capturing moments when I’m out and I want it to feel and be authentic.

The 7 plus comes with portrait mode which is definitely a game changer. I like to share my day to day outfits whenever I get the chance but also when it comes to my collaborations and working with brands, I have been taking the pictures from my phone.

Weekends are my favorite because I don’t work so I can actually do my hair and makeup, I love to just go and explore new places to eat and find cute little hidden gems where I can take a couple of quick snaps. I won’t lie, I used to get overwhelmed because I wanted to take the perfect photo but I’ve come to realize it’s not that serious. As a blogger/influencer creating content is what I do because I love it but I want it to be authentic and show my personality through it all.

I hope this was helpful in some kind of way, and if you read it to this point THANK YOU!

Beauty Tips

Happy Monday loves! Hope you all had an amazing day to start off the week, I killed it at the gym and I am more motivated than ever to get summer ready. Are you?!

Let’s get down to business because I want to keep it real with you all, I am the queen of trying samples when it comes to beauty products. LOL

Even though there are tons of reviews online that are very much helpful, I still have to try it out for myself and my skin type so that’s a huge reason why I love samples before I invest in a pricey product.

Back in December, I bought a set that came with a couple of samples from different brands all helping to reduce pores which is PERFECT and just what I needed! I bought this set from Macy’s for $25 so it was definitely worth the price! I’ve linked each item below because I want to share all the goodness with you girls and help a sista out! LOL

Make sure to click the links, I couldn’t find the sample sizes for some of the products but I still wanted to share what I got in the gift set.

 

Ahava Purifying Mud Masks  ($12.80 eBay)

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask  ($12.00 Sephora)

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner ($18.40 Wal-mart)

SHEIN Review 2017

This summer has definitely been good to me, I started off by graduating from CSUN with my B.A in Sociology following my birthday to an AMAZING trip to Miami and here we are now getting ready for fall.

I took a break from my blog to take full advantage of summer and hit the beach, enjoy time with friends and family and that’s exactly what I did. I am looking forward to new beginnings and the next chapter in my life.

BUT anywhoooo, let’s get to talking some fashion and what I have been obsessing over lately…two piece sets!!!

I love ordering from SHEIN because they are always up to date with fashion, not to mention their affordable prices!

I have been wearing two piece sets all summer long, they are so easy to throw on, easy to style and this burgundy one was love at first sight. Details are always a favorite of mine and this one has the perfect back detailing, I love that the straps are adjustable, I am wearing a size small and it fits perfectly.

I went for a casual look with white sneakers but you can even wear a pair of cute sandals or heels for a hot date night! Click the link down below and shop this set for only $15!!!

Ankle jeans are definitely in style right now, I love the length because it gives you room to show off your favorite pair of shoes. The distressed look will always be my favorite which is also another item you can dress up or down.

Go Jane Gingham Top

We all know that Gingham is definitely in right now, I’ve seen it on everything from shorts to dresses and when I saw this top on www.gojane.com  I fell in love because not only is it a crop top but I love that it comes in baby blue. I have been obsessing over blue tones lately, it’s the perfect pop of color, it’s nice and fresh.

This top caught my eye because I love the feminine touch that it adds to the entire look. This top is also available in other colors so make sure to check out their website.

I’m going to Miami in a few weeks and I’m definitely bringing this top with me, it’s so versatile and something you can dress up or down. For today’s look, I kept things casual in all blue by wearing denim and my go to mules.

Enjoy the look. <3

Glow Med Spa Encino

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is enjoying their long 4th of July weekend, casual Sunday’s are my favorite which consisted of shopping and stopping by @glowmedspaencino   for my laser hair removal treatment. Glow Med Spa is located in Encino off Ventura Blvd, I received treatment for my underarms and I love the quick and easy process.

I would definitely recommend for others to try laser hair removal because it’s so easy and convenient. Your hair grows back less as you continue the treatments every 4-6 weeks. This is perfect for the summer because I don’t have to worry about shaving. You can click the link above to check out their Instagram page as well as their website. It is important to stay away from the sun to avoid skin discoloration and it’s very important to treat and moisturize the area after, you can use vaseline to avoid skin irritation.

Being someone that loves to workout daily, I must mention that you should wait at least 24 hours before working out to prevent your body from sweating and causing skin irritation.

I love this quick and easy process, it’s painless and they also help by providing numbing cream. I do plan on trying more treatments because it is a great investment so if you’ve ever wondered about trying this process, just got for it!

Baby Blue Floral Dress

I am definitely all about the blues this summer, it’s such a great pop of color and chic as well. Floral prints have always been my obsession and this dress via https://www.instagram.com/shopwithbold/  was totally made for me!

Not only does this dress come off the shoulder but I love how delicate it looks and feels as well. The side slit is always a plus in my book to show off some leg and the cool part about this item is that it comes as a romper on the inside!

I went for an all blue look with my favorite mules and I totally felt like the Latina Cinderella hehe but who doesn’t want to feel like a princess?! I love that you can wear this with sandals for a casual look or completely dress it up in heels. I had to wear my hair up because it’s been so hot in LA!!!

Shop this dress by clicking the link above and it’ll redirect you to their Instagram page.

Enjoy the look, xoxo

New Nike Workout Gear

Now, those who know me well and follow along on Instagram and snapchat know that I live in workout gear on a daily basis. Even as I’m writing this post, I’m dressed in workout clothing because I”m hitting the gym soon. Workout gear is so comfortable and it definitely motivates me to achieve my goals.

Summer has arrived so that means going to the beach, pool days, long nights and tons of fun and of course you want to feel your best. The gym is extremely important to me and I make it a point to have that as one of my top priorities. Remember that excuses will always be there to stop you from doing something but if you just get up and go to the gym, I promise you’ll feel so amazing when you’re done. I recently started working full time and by the end of the day I feel so exhausted that all I want to do is go home and sleep. That’s where it’s easy to let excuses get in the way but I come straight home, have a snack and head straight to the gym. This is the lifestyle I choose to live by, I enjoy the process and seeing results is always encouraging and the determination is my favorite.

I am wearing my new Nike leggings that I got via Macy’s at a blogger event recently. They gave us a tour before the grand opening of Macy’s in Century City and when they said we were allowed to choose some items as a gift, I ran straight to the athletic department! It was a no brainer and these leggings are so comfortable, I love the colors and it’s definitely my style!

Enjoy the look!
