Living Unapologetically+ Robert Wayne Footwear Collaboration

Happy Tuesday babes! I can’t believe we are halfway through May which means summer is around the corner and before we know it we’ll be back celebrating the holidays and ending 2018!!!

I want to get into the topic of living unapologetically because I am a firm believer that everyone should live this way. This topic can mean numerous things to different people so I want to share a little on how I interpret it and how I learned to live this way. Read more down below.

I think for the most part people worry about what others will think or say about them including myself but I quickly snap out of it because I would say that within the last year I started telling myself that people will talk regardless so might as well let them talk based on me showing others who I really am. So when I say live unapologetically, I literally mean with EVERYTHING! I have no shame in speaking my mind and sharing my feelings because at the end of it all I’m the one that has to go through situations on a daily basis. I’d rather go through life letting things out and not bottling up emotions etc. I believe in staying true to myself in all situations and with everyone which is also a huge reason why I love fashion because I am able to express myself through my style of clothing. I enjoy being versatile and experimenting with different looks, as long as I feel confident in what I’m wearing then that’s all that matters. Being confident and feeling unapologetic feels so good, try it and you can thank me later!

*Say what you want, what you feel and do as you please because life is too short to worry about putting others in front of your happiness!!!


I want to share this awesome collaboration I did with @robertwaynefootwear sharing my new kicks, I will link them down below to shop and let me tell you they are super comfy and go with any kind of style.

I’m all about taking one item and creating endless looks, I spent the day in Venice Beach with Robert Wayne Footwear to catch up and talk about fashion, fitness and lifestyle. I am the queen of comfort and being casual so I hope you enjoy these looks that are easy to recreate.

Look #1: Shades of Grey

I love love love wearing leggings, sweats, jogger pants etc. because I feel in my element not to mention confident in my body. I enjoy dressing this way because I basically live at the gym or I’m busy running errands etc. so I live for comfort. How perfect do these shoes match with my outfit?!

Look #2: Denim & Crop Tops 

Let me start off by saying that these are my favorite pair of denim jeans, I’ve had them for years now and we all need that one pair that fits just right. For all my curvy girls out there, high waist denim jeans are the perfect style to accentuate those curves! My go to style when wearing denim is to pair it with any kind of crop top and since we are blooming for the spring time, I thought I’d pair it with a light pink top and vintage sunnies for a fresh look. Cuff up those jeans and rock them with comfy shoes and you’re good to go!

Look #3: Better in Black

For all my girls that have a whole wardrobe filled with black clothing, this outfit is for you! I decided to pair my edgy leather jacket to spice things up but kept the rest casual to be true to my style and threw on some leggings and a tank top for a day at the beach! I also threw my hair up in a messy bun because that’s just how I like to roll on a daily basis. I love that this whole outfit is black but the shoes make that pop and are a true statement with anything I wear.

Real Life vs. Social Media

Happy Tuesday babes, it’s a new week and I know tons of you are recovering from celebrating Cinco de Mayo! We are back to reality and that means kicking ass during the week so I want to get straight into the topic of real life vs. social media and give you some insight into how things work in my life.

My real life consists of working as a behavioral therapist Monday-Thursday, my schedule is scattered all over the place during the week but I am lucky enough to have found this job after graduating last year from CSUN with my B.A in sociology. I know it is completely different from my passion of being a fashion, fitness and lifestyle blogger but that’s where real life kicks in and I’ve learned how to balance them both. I’m busy with my clients during the week so I only have time in between to run errands and make it to the gym. I work my butt off at work and to be honest sometimes I don’t feel like working out and I just want to be lazy at home and stay away from social media and posting but I remind myself that I do my blogging because it’s my passion. Whenever I have blogger events, I take time off work and fit it into my schedule and I somehow I make it all work. On weekends, I take time to create content and spend time with friends and family. As far as the gym goes, if you follow me on Instagram @segagenesis_ then you know I make it to the gym 4-5 times a week, it’s my stress reliever so even when I feel lazy I make it a point to go because it feels rewarding afterwards to know I’m doing something good for my well being. So that’s a little insight to the real things that go on in my life.

Let’s be honest, social media is a platform where everyone shares their “best” moments and I say duh why wouldn’t I share that with everyone? I am one that likes to think positive so why would I sit there and mope around on social media?  That’s not to say I discredit anyone else who likes to keep it raw with their emotions but for my preference I’d rather keep things to myself and work through things with my support system of close friends and family. I love being cheerful and good spirited so yes when it comes to social media I like to share my good emotions with all of you. Life is way too short so I always tell myself to smile and be happy to even be alive as cliché as it may sound. I don’t have time or the energy to let negative emotions get the best of me.

I share this with you all so you can get to know me on another level besides sharing my OOTD’s so I hope you enjoy reading my blog posts.


Here’s a new #ootd I am sharing for spring, I have been trying to step outside of my comfort zone which I feel like I do a pretty good job because my style is so versatile so I am sharing another item from SHEIN with this little plaid number. I love that the straps are adjustable, it’s a wrap dress mixed into a romper so it’s definitely a statement piece.

Self Love & Coming First

Happy Tuesday loves, let’s start off by saying how weird this LA weather is, hot and cold like my attitude. LOL

It’s a fresh new week which always gives us all a chance for a fresh start to get our mind right and set our goals to conquer. I like to set short term goals for the week to keep myself accountable for what I am trying to accomplish and slowly but surely I am getting there. I also have my long term goals that I like to set as well to look at the bigger picture and to remind myself that I got this!

Setting goals begin with self love because it all starts internally. The worst thing someone can do is throw themselves a pity party because no one likes a negative Nancy! You must remind yourself that in the most difficult of times you push even harder to rise. Self love can mean a lot of things to different people so I want to share some of my thoughts and what it means to me, I will list them down below and I hope they can make a difference to someone.

  1. Take care of your body (gym and food) I know that not everyone is perfect and we all have our moments of caving in and going for that dessert or something you’ve been craving but consistency is key so I try my best to make the gym and what I eat a priority so yes, that means cutting out junk food 90% of the time. *You got this!
  2. Getting a good night sleep, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stayed up late doing nothing but fighting my sleep by being on my phone or watching TV and then I’m hating life the next day because I’m acting like a monster! LOL…I like to give myself a time where I am just forced to go to sleep because in the long run it does really help to make you feel better and refreshed so you should definitely try this out!
  3. Make time for your hobbies, for me this includes working out, spending quality time with friends and family. I love the outdoors so I love to go on hikes, trying new places to eat and just be out enjoying life! Make time for the things that make you happy and you will see a huge change in your life, I promise! (:
  4. Let go of negative energies that no longer serve a purpose in your life whether it’s people, situations, your job, etc. you have to recognize how it makes you feel internally and if you’re feeling negative then it’s time to let go and move on. Being positive is far more important than putting your energy into things that will only bring you down.

Now moving onto my outfit details, I am loving this new top via SHEIN, I normally don’t wear graphic tees but I love how this outfit turned out sporty, chic and casual. Here’s another item that has a great steal for only $9 and how cute is this top?! The girly print, the heart and material of this top, I love it all! It comes in a thick and stretchy material that you can wear multiple ways like I did here tucked into my denim skirt via Go Jane or with shorts, overalls, jeans, etc. This top is also available in black and white.

How to Wear Denim Multiple Ways

Happy Sunday loves, it was a great weekend and I hope everyone had a fun time celebrating St. Patty’s Day yesterday. I spent yesterday afternoon trying different places to eat and drink in Downtown LA which I always love going to because it’s constantly evolving and finding hidden gems is my favorite thing to do. As for today, I stayed in my pj’s all day watching movies and organizing my room; it’s all about balance right?! Tomorrow is a new week so back to the gym I go and I’m ready to start off strong so let’s do this!

I am going to share my tips and tricks on how I wear personally like to wear denim multiple ways. The best time to experiment with denim in my opinion is for winter and spring because there’s no way you’ll catch me in jeans during the summer.

I like to choose a good pairs that has its own unique style to create endless looks. My must have denim style are the ones high at the waist because they fit my body like a glove and go with just about anything. This type of style is so versatile and I love that I can wear it with crop tops, bodysuits, t-shirts etc. The way to create endless looks with one pair of denim is by switching it up with your tops and shoes. Switch it up with your colors and styles of tops, same goes for shoes by wearing sandals, or sneakers and heels another day. I’ve done it all and I’m loving my new pair via Lola Shoetique I love that they look cool, they come with a flare at the ankle and a cute denim belt to cinch the waist. When ordering this style, I would say to size up because they do run small and I am wearing a size large. I love that the flare sits at the ankle because you can show off your shoes and you all know I have the biggest love for shoes so trust me when I say I am going to continue wearing this pair of jeans and styling it multiple ways.

Follow me on Instagram to stay up to date with my latest looks @segagenesis_

Striped Jumpsuit for Spring

Happy Monday! I’m loving the time change because it means spring is near and we’re that much closer to summer! I mentioned my obsession for two piece sets in my last blog post so now I am here to talk about jumpsuits.

Just like two piece sets, jumpsuits are easy to throw on as well and perfect for spring as it begins to get warmer. Jumpsuits are also a favorite of mine because it transforms your look, you get to look chic while still being effortless which is definitely the best of both worlds. My latest look is from SHEIN and I’m loving the stripes and color combo, I am definitely bringing back tons of looks with off the shoulder details.

During spring I love wearing jumpsuits with sandals and a denim jacket to go out with friends or a casual date for a fun and flirty vibe or like I did here with black accessories and dress it up. I’ve attached the link down below to shop, hurry because it’s on sale!!! I’ve also attached similar jumpsuits and they are under $30.

Two Piece Sets for Spring

Happy Tuesday loves! Spring is right around the corner which I’m so excited about, I can start bringing out my dresses, skirts, shorts but my favorite are the two piece sets. I recommend these to anyone because they are easy to throw on and let’s be real most girls take forever trying to put a outfit together, you feel like nothing works and that’s where the two piece sets come in for the win! LOL

I have so many sets in my closet, I’ve lost count but they are definitely perfect all year long and all you have to do is throw on some accessories, a jacket if it’s cool out and a cute pair of shoes. You all know I love pieces that are versatile that you can dress up or down.

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!

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!!!
