From Loungewear to Every-day

This partnership with Zella, Nordstrom’s in-house lifestyle brand, has been so fun- especially because I get to show you the cutest and comfiest loungewear- especially if you are like me and you are lucky enough to work from home in these times.

But as we are learning to live with this new normal, I wanted to show you some ways you can “spice up” your loungewear and make it the cutest outfit for a date outdoors, run some errands…just add your favorite mask and you are ready to go.

 The Crewneck Sweatshirt

I’m wearing this crewneck sweatshirt all the time- which comes in a few colors! I mostly wear it at home with its matching shorts (and if you love joggers, the matching joggers are available too).

To wear it out and about, just add your favorite jeans! I wanted to feel a little dressier so I added the booties, but you can definitely wear your favorite sneakers and it’s such a perfect look for errands.


These leggings are super soft but they hug your curves. You can wear them to work out (here I paired them with the Rhythm Sports Bra- best for low impact like yoga), to lounge around (they are also featured in the lounge look with the hoodie!), and they look amazing with some boots, a cute tee  (here I am wearing the the washed tie Dye Studio T shirt ) and a leather jacket- perfect for those days you want to be comfortable but still look cute!


My husband wore this hoodie in the previous post we did with Zella BUT I have a weakness for men’s hoodies. The fit is a little longer and roomier.  As mentioned, I first wore it with the lounge leggings . Then for the dressier look, I just added some biker shorts and over the knee boots! I think this might be my favorite look!

I prefer to shop online, BUT sometimes I can’t wait! When I shop at Nordstrom , I click the option for “free pickup” at my closest local store!

Feed Your Hair, Feed Your Body

It is always so exciting to partner with brands you absolutely use and love. I first learned about Hair Food in May 2020 and the products worked perfectly for my curly journey, where it is recommended to use products are free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, and dyes!

So I want to tell you more about my current routine:

 - I wash my hair once a week because that’s what works for me! I’m using the Coconut Milk & Chai Spice Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. The scent is perfect for the winter: sweet, but not overwhelmingly sweet. My husband loves it too!

- When my hair is still damp, I apply the Mango & Aloe Vera Leave-in Curl Defining Smoothie, it helps tame frizz and give defined curls.

- Then I applied a bit of gel for curls to hold them a bit more..

- I’m really happy with my curls; but some days, I need to use a curling around to curl a few strands around my face. 

- So I’m using the Coconut & Argan Oil Heat Protectant Blend, it protects your hair from heat damage up to 450 degrees and gives it a healthy shine!

-To open the curls and break the curl hold, I use the Avocado & Argan Sulfate Free Smoothing Hair Oil to prevent frizz and give it a shine kick!

You can shop all these products here. 

Hair Food’s mission is to feed your hair like you feed your body. 

So inspired by their kitchen-crafted recipes full of superfoods, let’s do a smoothie with delicious and nutritious ingredients that nourish your body (and hair!!)

You need:

  • Frozen mangos
  • Fresh Aloe Vera Juice (it has so much benefits like improving digestion and boosting immunity). Here’s a quick tutorial on how to safely prepare the Aloe Vera Juice.
  • Coconut chunks
  • Avocado.
  • Optional: ginger 
Blend until smooth and enjoy! You can also add coconut flakes when you are ready to serve!

These tropical ingredients also remind me of my childhood in Venezuela and spending time with my family. I love my hair is as simple as what I put in my smoothies
