Embrace Change

Who likes change?

I can personally say that it freaks me out but I’ve learned to embrace change because along with change comes blessings and that’s what life is all about.

Continue reading down below for more…

Anything in life that requires change can be scary but instead of letting it take over your life, why not take control of the situation and turn that around? I will list some key points on how to embrace change in your life.

  • be positive (train your thoughts to see the best in every situation)
  • everything happens for a reason (accept change and move forward)
  • acknowledge your past (look back only to see how far you’ve come)
  • confidence (remind yourself daily how awesome you are)
  • let go (let go of anything that no longer serves you in a positive way)

2018 is flying by but you don’t need the “new year, new me” mentality because things change everyday. I started off my summer with a new hair color, I decided to go lighter because I wanted change myself and I love it! That’s the beauty of life, once something changes you appreciate things so much more and somehow everything falls into place and makes perfect sense. Never allow anyone or anything to hold you back, be selfish with the things you want in life because your dreams won’t come true unless you make them happen.

Fitness Q&A+ Favorites

Happy Monday babes, OMG the heat was real this past weekend!

I want to answer a couple questions based on my fitness routine because I have gotten a couple of DM’s through Instagram so I will share as much as I can plus share some of my current favorite athletic wear. Continue reading down below for more.

So let’s start off with my fitness routine, I like to workout 4-5 times a week. I do cardio 20-30 mins before I start lifting and usually consists of the stair master, elliptical and bike whenever I like to change it up.

As for lifting, I like to spread out my workouts. I do lower body twice a week so it’s extremely important to switch it up if you want gain muscle you MUST lift heavy. It’s all a process so keep in mind that everyone starts off somewhere but being consistent will really pay off and show you the results you want as long as you put in the effort all around.

I workout biceps and triceps one day, shoulders another day and back and chest together. YouTube is a great way to learn and follow exercises if you are beginning your fitness journey. I still follow videos when I want to learn new techniques and there’s so many ideas to follow that are super easy as well.

Top via @runitwear

I like to incorporate abs at least 3 times a week which usually fall on the days I workout upper body so I spend about an hour and a half at the gym. Stretching is also a MUST to get your body ready before you workout. I like to use the foam roller for my leg days before and after my workout.

Food:

I LOVE FOOD!!! So I am constantly eating and snacking every 2-3 hours. I usually start my morning with coffee, spinach omelette, bacon and a hash brown with a side of avocado toast. I have chicken/meat with rice for lunch around 11-12 and have another meal around 2-3 but try to substitute the rice for veggies and then have dinner around 7-8. As for my snacks in between, I like to eat fruit or do a protein shake. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely eat what I want but all in moderation. I have my moments of weakness which are pizza and donuts because carbs are life lol BUT I can definitely say I cut out fast food such as Mc Donald’s, Burger King, Jack in the Box, etc. My top 3 places to eat out for my cheat meals are in n out, panda express and chipotle. LOL

I would say for the most part I do a good job, I don’t count calories, I’ve just learned what I have to cut back on and of course to drink plenty of water. I drink water with all of my meals.

As for the protein I take, I normally take whey protein but don’t have a specific brand. I am currently experimenting to see what goes well with my body. I love mixing my protein powder with banana, peanut butter and almond milk. I take c4 for my pre workout which I buy at Target for $20 but I only take it twice a week when I workout lower body.

I want to keep this information simple and straight to the point for what I do but if you have any questions or other tips you are looking for I am more than happy to answer. You can email me or send me a DM on Instagram.

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.

Adidas Swift Run

 

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.

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. My latest two piece set is from SHEIN which I always brag about because they always have the latest styles and the best prices on sale. I’m sad to say it is currently sold out but I am still going to link the item so you can get a closer look at the details and hopefully it gets restocked.

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!

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

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!!!

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!

Casual Floral Romper

It’s getting warmer which means lots of sunshine and trying to stay cool! I love a good romper especially when it comes in a floral print. I have a huge collection of rompers that keeps growing , they’re so easy to throw on and you’re ready to head out.

I love this one via http://www.rainbowshops.com  for its beautiful pop of color and the details make it that much better. I love some fun in the sun and this romper was definitely made for that, it has a flirty kick to it and I can’t wait to wear it out more.

Now that summer is approaching, I’m all about it keeping things casual so I went for sandals instead of heels this time around and love how it turned out.

Enjoy the look, xoxo!
