Happy Friday! Summer is winding down but that doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to! I’m taking full advantage of wearing crop tops because they are my absolute favorite so I will be sharing a new outfit I got in collaboration with @youandpioclothing
and how cute are these white trousers?! I love that they come with built in shorts and you can also transition them into the fall and winter season paired along with a cute turtle neck or bodysuit. You will definitely be seeing these pants around more often!
Read down below for a special cause I am talking about…
Who loves dogs?! I’ve always been a dog lover and Ida’s Walkers provides help for senior citizens, in the Long Beach area, who are no longer able to provide physical activity or care that a pet needs. Research proves that owning a pet provides crucial companionship, increased mental health and physical activity.
Dogs bring so much love and definitely change your life for the better!
You+Pio will be donating 5% of purchases throughout the rest of September and direct donations can be made through youandpioclothing.com to Ida’s Walkers and you will receive a 30% off code when making a direct donation to Ida’s Wakers.

I’ve had dogs my whole life and it makes me so happy to collaborate with You+ Pio Clothing for such a great cause.
Now more than ever we are surrounded by social media, an image that everyone portrays of what we should look like or the way we should be living but at the end of the day it’s all about being comfortable in your own skin!
Continue reading below for more…
Being comfortable in your own skin means embracing your flaws and knowing that no one is you and that’s your power! Instead of comparing yourself to others, appreciate the things you have in life because you are unique and have something different to offer this world!
The same goes with anything you wear, always be true to yourself and comfortable in your skin. Don’t fall into the hype of trends and name brand items especially when you don’t have the money to spend like that. If you feel comfortable wearing a white t-shirt and denim jeans then rock that outfit girl! I am a firm believer and huge advocate when it comes to spending smart and I’m definitely not afraid to speak on it because I’d rather spend money on food than ONE expensive item! LOL
I’m going to keep it 100% real right now…it has been a process to come into my own body and embrace every little detail about it. I must say, being 28 has allowed me more than ever to be confident and rock my own style, I like to have fun, be creative and carefree because #yolo LOL
Remember that things aren’t all that serious so just live life and most of all, enjoy it!
P.s. How cute is this top?! I LOVE the polka dots AND it’s also a crop top which is a huge obsession of mine so shop below for $15!!!

Now let’s keep it alllll the way real right now, when people say stop complaining and start doing it’s easier said than done!
Am I right?! I struggle with this as well, some days I’m on top of everything aka getting shit done and other days I feel lazy and put things off for later or even the next day. It takes a lot of practice and it is definitely possible, it’s all about baby steps and not letting excuses take control of your daily activities.

A good way for me to “stop complaining, start doing” is by writing down a list of things to do for the week. I do this every Monday morning and check things off as I do them, I make sure to accomplish a little everyday.
For example, yesterday was one of those days where I just didn’t want to do anything and I won’t lie I put off the gym in the morning but I still went at night and instead got other things done around the house during the day. Don’t get me wrong, I do understand that our body needs to rest and although that is very difficult for me to do because I’m always on the go, I do sit back and relax a little even if it’s an hour out of the day.

Do what you love, what gives you passion and gets you going!!! If you want to start that blog, DO IT! If you want to start that YouTube channel, DO IT! When I started blogging and filming videos for YouTube a couple of years ago I just threw myself into it and everything else started coming along. I’m still learning and evolving which is a part of life but being stuck and scared is not an option for me and t shouldn’t be for anyone else.
So anything you want to do in life, JUST DO IT! Your happiness comes first so take care of yourself, your thoughts and the energy that surrounds you!
Hi babes, now more than ever I have become the queen of outfit repeating and I love to mix and match as well. Continue reading down below on how to get started…
I definitely like to ball on a budget and be smart with things I purchase. Versatile pieces are a must because they can transform any look which is exactly what you need to mix and match. As much as I love fun prints, I try to stay away from them because it limits how many times I can actually change up the look so basic pieces are your best friend. Being that it’s summer time, I LOVE buying basic crop tops, cami’s along with basic t-shirts because they go with denim shorts, skirts, EVERYTHING!
In today’s #ootd I am wearing this casual monochromatic look, I bought these denim shorts that I’ve worn sooooo many times whether it’s with sneakers, sandals and here I decided to pair it with my new pearl crop top and small heeled block sandals to make it chic and casual. I love this top from SHEIN because the color stands out, it comes with a cute tie in the back detail and how cute are the pearls?! This is the perfect example of a versatile piece because you can dress it up or down. Envision the endless possibilities when you are able to mix and match an item. I can wear this top with denim jeans the next time around, with trousers for a dressy look or even a skirt and I can also transition this top into the fall season. Be smart with the way you spend your money, I am linking this top down below because it’s on sale for only $7!!!!

Happy Wednesday babes, who loves a bright color that makes a statement?! This girl right here!! I have been obsessed with bold and bright colors for summer to go along with my tan, it’s the perfect combo.
SHEIN has the perfect items to upgrade your wardrobe for summer and I want to the share this super cute top I recently got, crop tops are my favorite all year long but for summer they are a must.
Link top shop item for $5 :
I am the queen of the sales and have no shame in my game babes and you shouldn’t either. For example the top I’m sharing is only $5!!!! Not only is it cheap in price but I love that it looks very chic and something you can dress up or down. Over the years I have learned to shop smart and get items that always stand out but most of all a steal for my pocket if you know what I mean.
For those who know me, whenever I get compliments about my clothes or shoes you will always hear me say, “OMG, it was so cheap I got it on sale!” I stay true to that when buying items that are normally under $25 and anything I have purchased that goes over $25 I can count on one hand.
You can look cute on a budget while making sure you choose versatile pieces to recreate outfits which has been my favorite thing to do lately! Crop tops are my favorite because they accentuate the waist and this one definitely stands out because it’s a one shoulder top with scallop details that make it unique. The material is thin and stretchy so it’s perfect for summer. I am a firm believer in wearing whatever you want and it’s all about being confident to make anything work!
Enjoy the look and shop this top 🙂

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.
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.

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.
- 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!
- 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!
- 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! (:
- 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!
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.

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
