5 tips to fight under-eye circles

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

When I don’t wear makeup (specifically concealer), I get psychologically ready for all the “OMG, you look so tired” and “Dany, are you feeling okay?”. I’ve always been a heavy sleeper, I drink a lot of water, and I eat healthy – but no matter what I do, they are always still there. My dark under-eye circles.

If you are like me and can’t live without concealer, here are some easy tips to fight dark circles, wrinkles, and puffiness instantly.

Ready for a summer concert? You already have the cutest outfit planned…now the last thing you should be doing is taking forever to do your hair. You are going to be dancing and singing, and there might be a chance that it is outdoors. That’s why it’s important to have a ‘do that is both weather and dance proof. 

I partnered with Patnene to help you get concert ready with the perfect hairstyles for any music event you have coming up!

For these hairstyles, my first step was use the Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner. First impression? Great smell! Second impression? The name does not lie! My hair felt instantly hydrated and smooth. These products are a must for dry hair like mine!

From time to time (once a week if we want to be more specific) our dry hair needs a little more help. The solution: Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Moisture Renewal Deep Conditioner. Using a deep conditioner like this one is a great idea before an outdoor music festival…it will help to prevent frizz without leaving your hair with a heavy or greasy feeling.

2016 is flying by! I can’t believe it is already mid-June…but I love summer and I’m so excited about the upcoming warmer months! It’s the perfect time to plan some fun outdoor activities with friends and loved ones, and then relax with some me-time at home with a good book!

Today I’m super excited to partner with Chateau Ste. Michelle to show you 10 stylish outfits with their respective fun summer activity and perfect wine pairing!

I had a blast doing this post: planning each activity, inviting friends over, and celebrating the little moments with them and a glass of wine. Chateau Ste. Michelle has been producing classic Washington wines since 1967- and I can say I just found a new favorite in the 10 wines I tried over the past few weeks!

Let’s get started!!

Yo no puedo creer que ya estamos a mediados de junio. A mi me encanta el verano porque me parece el momento perfecto para planear actividades divertidas al aire libre con tu familia y amigos...y bueno también relajarte un poco y leer un libro en casa.

Hoy estoy muy contenta de colaborar con Chateau Ste. Michelle y mostrarles 10 looks perfectos para diferentes actividades de verano y que vino puedes servir en cada una.

De verdad que la pasé increíble haciendo este post...planeando cada actividad, invitando a amigos a la casa, y celebrando los pequeños momentos con ellos con un vaso de vino. Chateau Ste. Michelle lleva produciendo vinos desde 1967... y les puedo asegurar que encontré muchos favoritos mientras hacíamos este post.


A day in Naples, Florida

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

One of our main resolutions for 2016 was to travel more...even if it was to smaller towns in Florida...and that's exactly what we did a couple of weeks ago, we headed to Naples. Naples is on the west side of Florida...which means beach sunsets instead of sunrises. However, we had a small issue..the weather did not cooperate with us.  It felt like a monsoon the first day there, the second day we were able to go to the beach...even though it was very cloudy and it ended up drizzling a little.

I wore a cute halter dress with the cutest lace-up flats...my favorite hat and fun accessories (I'm very into chokers lately..and I know I'm not the only one!).  Then for an early dinner, I added a fun bomber jacket and changed my flats to heels.

We really want to come back because we felt the weather did not let us explore as much as we wanted...but it is such a gorgeous town.

Hope you like the pictures <3 Have an amazing week!

Para el 2016, una de nuestras resoluciones de año nuevo fue viajar más... así fuese ir a pequeños pueblos alrededor de Florida. Por eso quisimos ir a Naples..un pueblo a casi dos horas de Miami pero para el lado oeste. Esto nos tenía emocionados por el hecho de ver el atardecer en el mar...en vez del amanecer como es en Miami. Pero tuvimos un pequeño percance: el CLIMA. No paraba de llover, el primer día estuvimos todo el tiempo en el hotel porque no había manera de salir. El segundo día si fuimos a comer y a la playa...pero estaba nublado y lloviznaba de vez en cuando. Queremos regresar pronto porque lo que vimos nos encantó...pero definitivamente no pudimos disfrutarlo.

En este post ando con un vestidito cómodo de Express y unas sandalias de tiritas, mi sombrero favorito y accesorios trendy (ultimamente me la paso con gargantillas...me fascinan). Luego para cenar temprano agregué una chaqueta estilo bomber y me cambié a tacones.

Espero que disfruten las fotitos. ¡BESOS!

Summer Party Ready 2016…with these 10 Fashion & Beauty Essentials.

Summer is officially here…which means spending more time outside: picnics, pool parties, concerts or festivals, barbecues, rooftop parties…WHO ELSE IS EXCITED? 

All of these are SO MUCH fun…and I’m sure you want to look gorgeous and trendy. I always say that it’s not only about looking beautiful,it’s about what you do in that beautiful dress and fun lipstick. During the summer, you should be  enjoying the moment with your friends and family instead of worrying about your beauty look or having to deal with sweaty situations.

So today I’m sharing my favorite 10 Fashion and Beauty essentials to party all summer outdoors! Let’s do this!

 1. Olay MicroSculpting Cream SPF30
I’m listing it first because it’s so important to be careful when it comes to sun protection. I always mention it, do not forget to apply (and re-apply) when you are spending a lot of time outdoors.

When I started blogging I was 20 and as I approach my 30s, I love products that also offer anti-aging benefits. Reason why I really like Olay MicroSculpting Cream SPF30- it protects against the harmful UVA/UVE, hydrates, brightens, and instantly reduces the appearance of lines. It is also a perfect size to carry on your travel bag or beach bag

2. Body Bronzer
Ok taking care of your skin doesn’t mean that you can not rock some tanned legs. But go for the non-harming option…a golden glow goes great with any outdoor summer activity. Go for gradual tanning products instead of those that will leave you patchy and too dark.

3. CoverGirl trueBlend Primer
If you ask any professional makeup artist what is the trick for long-lasting foundation, they are going to say PRIMER!! On a hot summer day, your makeup won’t last as long because of sweat and oil
. These are reasons why it’s very important to apply it to oily areas (think your T-zone: forehead and nose).

My recommendation: COVERGIRL trueBlend Primer. There are three types: one for oily skin (designed to minimize shine breakout), one for dry (to hydrate and create a smooth canvas), and one for combination skin. It will not only extend the life of your makeup, but make you look extra flawless.

4. Denim Shorts
If there is one piece that screams summer it is a good pair of denim shorts. They work over your favorite swimsuit for a pool party,  with a boho kimono for a festival, and with a light jacket for a barbecue that turns into a game-night. Yes. I know. You already have denim shorts, but think outside the box! There are so many styles right now. You could get one pair with lace, with a floral print, with the flag print (perfect for 4th of July), etc. But if you don’t have a pair of high waisted vintage shorts….this is the time!!

5. Secret Outlast Xtend Clear Gel
Ok, nobody wants to talk about stinky sweaty situations
, but someone has to do it!
You cannot really enjoy any summer activity if you don’t feel fresh and clean. I like the Secret Outlast Xtend Clear Gel because the gel dries super fast to avoid any white marks or residue. This one is designed to provide 48 hour odor protection.

6. Mirrored Sunglasses
This one is another obvious essential
, but it’s always a good reminder! Sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun, and they’ll keep you from squinting all day. I don’t recommend taking your expensive pair to the beach or lake , but look for styles that have UV protection. If you are thinking of getting a new pair, go for mirrored sunnies this summer! Cat eyes never go out of style, but you can get them in a fun, summer color.

7. One-piece swimsuits:
Long gone are the days that one-piece swimsuits used to be conservative or matronly.  One-piece bikinis are FUN, ON TREND, AND MODERN!! The best part: they also work as body suits that you can wear under skirts or shorts during any summer party. I specially love the ones that have sheer or strappy details or fun prints.

8. Anything with tassels or pom poms:
If there is a trend that is basically everywhere right now it’s tassels and pom poms. I’ve seen them on totes, dresses, tops, and sandals. I have a black off-the-shoulder top with pom poms that I absolutely love
, but I also have my eye on a pair of sandals with fun pom poms.

9. A multi-use sarong:
I have a thing for multi-use beauty products and I have the same thing for fashion items. That’s why I love my remix options for a sarong. You  can use it as a beach blanket, as a beach cover-up, and as a turban is a MUST during the summer months. 

10. A bold lip color:
I’m all for natural makeup during the warmer months…but this is the time to try a bright pink (like the COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in bombshell pink 425)  or fun orange red (like the COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in Garnet Flame 300)! 

What are your plans this Summer? 
Share them with me and/or your favorite beauty /fashion essentials for Summer ! XOXO
