Rain or Shine.. Dansko

I think over the years I've been blogging, it has been pretty obvious that I love a good pair of black booties. And if you are new here (first of all WELCOME!),  if you go back a few posts and you will see me wearing ankle boots so often!!

So I'm always in the look for a perfect pair that I know I will continue wearing throughout the years. Then I noticed that one of the main reasons I was messing up my boots was because they were not meant for the constant Miami rain. Yes, Florida is the sunshine state but it will surprise many people how often it rains here.

So the search for the perfect waterproof boot started. I didn't want them to look like rain boots either. And of course, I wanted them to be comfortable.

I headed to Zappos.com since it is one of my favorite sites because of its range of styles, outstanding service, and fast and free shipping. After a quick search, these Dansko boots, Becki, were like the perfect fit. Dansko is known for its high quality, undeniable comfort, and premium craftsmanship. I ordered them one night, and I got them the afternoon of the next day- Zappos fast shipping continues to surprise me!

They are perfectly versatile boots, I know that I can wear them with everything while also being prepared to the unpredictable Miami weather- and if you don't live in South Florida, they definitely work for the Fall/Winter and the Spring showers. They also come in a taupe color that is super cute!

Growing up in Venezuela, we didn’t really celebrate thanksgiving. When I moved to the U.S, it was instantly a Holiday that I liked celebrating because it reminds us to stay thankful, to revisit the year, and remember the good while spending it with family and loved ones.

I married a Puertorican, and they do celebrate Thanksgiving…their own way. The dishes are a bit different, but oh-so yummy. So I’ve learned that I have to be prepared for the most delicious eating. That’s why this dress from Topshop I got at Nordstrom was perfect for the occasion; it is roomy but it is still very cute; family appropriate but young and fun; and easy to layer if you live in colder weather.

Walking by Nordstrom, I had to get this green velvet handbag (similar here) with the chunky chain- it brings the greens in the floral dress and it is also perfect for the Holidays.

Last touches? The HONEY earrings and the fisherman hat.   I think they really bring the whole look together

You all know that I love matching with my little boy, even if we are in the same color palette. He was also very comfortable in his corduroy pants and grey sweater by Tucker + Tate, also from Nordstrom.

Also, did you already get your Holiday shopping done? I still have to buy everyone’s Christmas gifts. Nordstrom has their own curated gift guide section with categories like “Gifts Under $100” or “Gifts For Him”. Here are a few of my ideas for what to get:

Curls ANYTIME ANYWHERE...with Conair

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

I have curly hair naturally but I started straightening it when I was in college. I recently have started to try to get back my curls. However, after so many years of straightening it, it has been a slow process and I still have to style the top of my hair. 

I got to try the new Conair UNBOUND Cordless Auto-Curler- when I read the word CORDLESS, I was sold.  UNBOUND is the first high performance cordless, rechargeable auto curler. Curls, anytime anywhere? I’m there.  PLUS with my baby following me around trying to grab cords, I also feel it’s safer using the UNBOUND.

How does it work? 

Your hair is automatically drawn into the ceramic easy-glide coated curl chamber where it is held and heated from all directions. The ceramic surface helps smooth down flyaways and frizzies for added shine. Then you release for your perfect curl, and repeat that process all around your hair.

You can control the temperature: for tighter curls, select a higher temperature.

You also can control the direction of the curl: I personally like curls that flow away from your face (Right curl direction for your left side, and Left curl direction for your right side). 

Finally, you can control the time that it curls for. Select a longer time for a tighter curl, and a shorter time for a looser curl.

Then recharge if needed so it’s ready to curl the next time you need it. It can be used cord-free for up to an hour!

How I use it? 

My vanity area does not have a plug around, so it’s been amazing to finally get ready there instead of the bathroom. Like I mentioned, I curl medium-sized strands of hair from the top of my head(I let the rest air dry). 

As you can see the curls I get with the curler are beautiful. I let them cool down (I might finish my makeup while they cool); and then I brush them up with my fingers so they are not as perfectly done.

And that’s it! I have a feeling this will be a lifesaver more than once because I can do my hair literally ANYWHERE!

Would you try it? Where would you take your cordless curler!!
