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.

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!

Denim on Denim+ Go Jane

Who loves denim on denim?! Every year I pull out a couple of different pieces and never seem to get tired of this trend and it works for every season.

I love shopping and looking for different items I can add to my closet when it comes to Go Jane because they have it ALL!!!

I love and enjoy collaborating with GoJane, they are so sweet and I always get tons of compliments whenever I wear something from their store. When I saw this denim top online I knew it had to be mine and the bell sleeves were the winning touch that convinced me to get it right away!

This top is so cool and different because I love that it gives it touch of chic but it comes in a crop top style which is my obsession. I threw on a distressed pair of high waist denim shorts to make it casual.

I am always in need of a pop of color so I wore my pink heels which are also from Go Jane and my look was complete.

This look is a little throwback and was my first photoshoot with https://www.instagram.com/photobylesnolie/ I LOVE shooting with her and the eye that she has to capture awesome moments! Check her out and follow her on Instagram.

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.

Link for jumpsuit: http://bit.ly/2oAQjJ0

It’s $25 and in stock so hurry and check it out!

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

Black Ruffle Jumpsuit+ Nude Heels

Who loves wearing ruffles?! I do!!! How cute is this black jumpsuit via https://www.instagram.com/soniaskloset/  if you’re looking for something chic yet sexy this is definitely an item you need in your closet.

As you all know that having a LBD (little black dress) in your life is a must have, but so is a black jumpsuit! I love how it stretches and shapes my curves very well and  I’m really enjoying the the skinny leg details to mix it up.

That’s what I love about jumpsuits because you can dress it up and it’s perfect for any occasion and with the ruffle details on the front, it adds a fun twist.

Somehow when I brought this look together, I paired it with nude heels and big curls and the movie Grease came to mind. Don’t you think?! I feel like a modern version of Sandy. I can watch that movie over and over! ( I know the lines by memory)

I’m very glad about the straight leg because it allows to show off your shoes and all of my other black jumpsuits either have a flare leg or wide leg style to them so I’m very excited to wear this suit again with tons of other shoe options.

I wanted to keep this look simple to let the jumpsuit pop on its own. I wore my nude heels via https://www.instagram.com/shopmadora/ and my new bag via https://www.instagram.com/nikkybag/ for a chic and dressed up look.

As for my sunnies, I am rocking all of my new pairs via https://www.instagram.com/sunglassup_/ you guys have to check them out on Instagram because they have tons of cool and new styles coming out. They have free shipping and each pair is $9.99 flat if you’re in the U.S. How awesome is that?! Make sure to click the link and get some cool sunnies just in time for spring and summer.

Lace Off the Shoulder Top+ Frayed Jeans

I am finally sharing this super cute look and I have a deep obsession for pairing blue and pink together. This casual and chic look is perfect for spring and I have tons of new off the shoulder tops that I will be sharing soon.

How cute is this pink top?! I received it via http://www.rainbowshops.com and I love how delicate it looks and feels. This shade of light pink screams chic in my book and I love that it’s a crop top as well which is another obsession of mine.

I wanted this look to be cute and simple so I wore my new frayed denim jeans and when I spotted this pair at Forever 21, I tried them on right away and they were a definitely a winner! Frayed details are in right now and I love how these fit my body, they are tight and come high at the waist but come with a loose fit at the bottom.

I love denim so much that I picked out these cute little denim sandals which are also from Rainbow Shops. Click the link above to shop their website and get some awesome deals.

Enjoy this spring look and stay tuned for many more to come. xoxo
