Be In the Moment

Happy Wednesday babes, I feel like I’m still recovering from Memorial Day Weekend and the fact that I feel SUPER sore from my yesterday’s workout but I’m off today so I have time to relax, write this blog post and I’m also heading to a blogger event this evening.

My birthday is next week and with that being said I want to talk about being present in the moment which is something I definitely want to practice especially this weekend when I’m out celebrating with friends and loved ones. We are all consumed by social media and constantly being on our phones and I find myself constantly being on social media, texting, talking on the phone, reading emails etc. I’m always on the go and always multitasking but I randomly thought to myself, when was the last time I put my phone away and enjoyed myself?! I love creating content so don’t get me wrong but I’m always thinking ahead, taking pictures to post or thinking about the next picture I’m going to post when it really shouldn’t be that serious. So I bring this up because as I previously mentioned, I do want to practice being in the moment and it is definitely possible to accomplish. I have already started, so the next time you’re watching TV pay attention to what you’re watching. If you’re out with friends or spending time with family, enjoy their company and engage in real life conversations. There are so many ways to put this into practice so I challenge you to do this as well.


For Memorial Day I went to Hermosa Beach, I got to spend some time laying in the sand so the tanning has begun! (Let’s get toasty) I got to walk around and had some good food by the pier. If you’re ever in the area I definitely recommend Hermosa Beach because you can bar hop during the day and night as well. They had food trucks everywhere with music playing, it was a good vibe all around. I am wearing this new top via SHEIN which you know I am always bragging about because of their awesome prices. Now that it’s warming up, it’s perfect to tuck into any bottoms to accentuate your waist and I love the criss cross details on the front for sex appeal and you can dress it up or down. I will link it down below to shop.

P.s. It’s only $7!!!!

I wore it casual this time around so I will definitely style it again this summer multiple ways. I am becoming the queen of styling things more than once and I have no shame in my game.

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.

Read about It+ Motivational Tips

Happy Monday babes, hope you all had a great weekend and for those that were in Coachella, I have to say the heat was real!!! I went out there Saturday for some collaborations and man, it was burning hot! I had tons of fun and I’m ready to start my new week strong, stay focused and meet my goals for the week.

Now more than ever I have been all about positive vibes and I’ve learned in order to feel at peace you have to be wise in the energies you allow into your life. I’ve been getting better, it definitely takes practice and it is a process to see your life manifest into the things you want for yourself. My biggest advice is to pay attention to the little things that make you smile, that make you forget your problems and make you love life because those are the energies you should keep around and enhance instead of focusing on the negative.

It’s been almost a year since I’ve graduated from CSUN which means I can read what I want so since then I have been reading books that interest me which consist of poetry, self love, and motivation.  I want to share my top favorite books that have been a game changer in my life, I will link them down below and I truly recommend you to read these.

  1. The 5 Love Languages
  2. Love Her Wild
  3. How To Win Friends and Influence People
  4. You Are A Badass: How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life
  5. Why Men Love Bitches

Always remember to smile, be carefree and focus on what makes you happy!


Who’s ready for light layers and some fun under the sun?! I know I am and I’m loving my new top via SheIn, I love working with them because they have awesome prices and tons of cute items that are always in season. If you are all about saving that money, please check them out. I must say that bell sleeve tops are a great statement piece and this one comes in a cropped style which is my FAVORITE. I will definitely be wearing this multiple times over the spring and for those late summer nights, not to mention it’s only $9!!!! I linked the top down below to purchase. Enjoy!

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.

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!!!

Blue Striped Off the Shoulder Jumpsuit

The weekend is here and the weather is perfect, what better way than to enjoy some sun and be a little carefree right?! I’m loving my new striped off the shoulder jumpsuit via SheIn and OMG let me just say I absolutely fell in love with it.

I have been all about trying new trends and styles to step out of my comfort zone and this little number did the trick. Feeling comfortable in your own skin is all that matters. Whether you are wearing something casual and simple or elegant and ready to party, loving your body is the most important thing.

I was inspired by https://www.dia.com/ as they are all for body positivity and promoting confidence. I love this idea and I really live by it, so I challenge you to wear any style you want even if it’s something you could never see yourself wearing.

I have been doing the same for myself recently when collaborating with stores, I like to pick different pieces that I normally don’t own and something that will stand out from the ordinary.

So now, back to my cute off the shoulder jumpsuit by SheIn, I will leave the link below to shop.

I love the statement sleeves which are really in right now, not to mention the pop of blue which is perfect for spring. I have tons of blue coming to the blog soon and I am all about it! I love that this jumpsuit has a straight leg, pockets, and a tie around the waist for some extra detail. Wear it out casually with sandals or dress it up with cute some cute block heels like I did via http://www.rainbowshops.com and you’re ready to go!

Enjoy the look, xoxo!

Pink Ruffle Top+ Denim Shorts

Pink and ruffles together?! This top couldn’t get any cuter and I completely fell in love when I saw it online at SheIn. This top is chic and just the right pop of color that I need for spring.

This top is currently out of stock but I will leave the link down below so you can check back when it restocks.

Versatility is number one in my book, there’s nothing better than having one item that can be worn for multiple occasions. For today’s post I decided to go causal with my go-to denim shorts and a pair of pink heels to keep my look fresh.

This can be the perfect item to have as work attire by dressing it up completely with a cute pair of trousers and heels. You can wear it at both ends of the spectrum and you’ll have yourself the perfect look.

I definitely tend to go for casual looks so I tucked it into my shorts and I’m glad with how it turned out.

Ruffles are so fun to work with and I’m obsessed with the long tie in the front, the high neck and the short sleeves are perfect for that breeze. Enjoy the look! xoxo

SheIn Review: Off the Shoulder Dress+ Sugar Brand Booties

Am I a little early for festival season inspired looks…nope it’s never too early and I LOVE this time of year. There’s so much creativity and tons of inspiration I gather for bohemian looks. I received this dress via http://us.shein.com I knew it would be perfect to start sharing some boho chic looks. This dress has all of my favorite details from the floral print, front slits, the beautiful burgundy pop of color and not to mention my obsession with off the shoulders. This dress has it all, http://bit.ly/2mjiGuU click the link for this exact dress and it’s currently under $20!!!

I love bohemian looks because you can pack on the layers and somehow it all just  works. I will definitely be wearing this dress in the near future with different accessories but for now I had to wear my new coin necklace from Forever 21, it was just what I had in mind and it will be paired with tons of looks coming your way soon.

To bring the look together I paired this outfit with my new booties via https://shopsugarbrand.com and they are the perfect accessory for this bohemian inspired look. The chunky heel makes it comfortable to last all day and I love the cutout details.
