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.

I love how this outfit turned out and it was perfect beach weather as well, I am wearing my new Adidas Swift Run and OMG they are comfy. I will be sharing a special collaboration with Robert Wayne Footwear soon along with a giveaway so stay tuned because you don’t want to miss this!

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.

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

Stripes and Lace Up Skirt

I love trying new styles, mixing prints and that’s exactly what I did with today’s #ootd for the perfect summer look.

It’s fun experimenting with new ideas and I love how this outfit turned out. I received this striped top via www.macys.com a couple of months ago for a blogger event where they gifted us with a shopping spree, how awesome is that?!  I got a bunch of goodies and of course had to pick a crop top because that’s always my go to staple piece.

I decided to pair this top with a fun bottom so when I received this lace up skirt via www.gojane.com I knew it would be the perfect combination. I love that it’s a skirt in the front and has shorts underneath, it’s also stretchy and fits like a glove and who doesn’t love a good pop of color?!

To keep things casual, I threw on a pair of sandals and my look was complete. I have restocked my sandal collection so I will be sharing that soon.

Enjoy the look, xoxo!

Go Jane Red Maxi Dress

I must say that I fell in love when I got this dress via www.gojane.com because it has the perfect pop of color and the material is AMAZING!

This dress fits my body like a glove and I”m loving the cut out details on the waist to add some sex appeal along with the high slit. This dress is perfect for summer and here I decided to dress it up with matching red heels for something a little different and sexy.

This dress can be used for many occasions and the reason I say it’s perfect for summer is because you can throw on some sandals and wear it out to the beach as a cover up. Red is always a favorite color of mine to wear because it instantly changes your entire look.

I believe this dress is also available in black so make sure to check out their site for tons of items you need to add and be ready for summer.

To add a little contrast, I wore my new statement earrings which are also from Go Jane so believe me when I tell you, they have it all.

Enjoy the look, xoxo!

A’GACI Summer Playsuit

I live for weekends and this playsuit via http://www.agacistore.com is giving me life! I love the romper style with the long back to flow in the breeze, it’s playful and fresh for those hot summer days ahead! This week has been extremely hot in the Los Angeles area and this playsuit allowed for some movement while still keeping things chic.

I have been all about trying new styles, prints and colors and I’m loving the mixture on this one. It’s all in the details and the choker neckline is definitely in right now, it adds a different element, you can zip it up in the back and of course we can’t forget the pockets! So this playsuit is definitely a winner all around.

I wanted to keep things chic and dressy so I wore my new black heels via http://www.gojane.com they are the perfect statement that says, “watch out, I’m here!” Every girl needs a pair like this, they are timeless and can be worn with anything.

Enjoy the look!

A’GACI Striped Shorts+ Pink Top

Spring is in the air and we are getting that much closer to summer, it has been extremely hot lately here in Los Angeles so it’s time for light and easy layers.

I love collaborating with http://www.agacistore.com because they always have the latest trends to rock for a perfect day out.

I am wearing this cute pair of striped shorts which are so comfortable and stretchy, the tie around the waist is perfect along with the pockets. I’m loving the light colors, you can dress it up or down to any occasion and I paired it with a cropped tank top to keep things casual.

I like to keep my layers very light and fresh during the hot weather and this top is perfect, it’s super stretchy and racerback details are always a favorite of mine.

To bring the look together, I wore my new lace up sandals via http://www.gojane.com which are so perfect for this season not to mention how chic they look.

All of these pieces are versatile so you will be seeing more of them later in the summer, enjoy the look!

Black OTS Dress+ Go Jane

Coachella might be over but the festival season is still fresh in my heart! I am still all about boho and I love this new dress via https://www.instagram.com/noaelle/ which is giving me tons of gypsy vibes!

I love a good dark and edgy look and with this dress flowing in the breeze, it feels  just right. Being that this dress is a bit over sized, I decided to wear my black buckle belt for the perfect pop of accessory and it cinches the waist just how I like it.

Anything that comes off the shoulder is my new obsession and it is here to stay. Everyone needs little black dress and this one is a must in my book.

I threw on all black details and of course I always need a good pop of color to contrast my outfit a bit so I wore my favorite suede booties.

Enjoy the look, xoxo!
