Shopbop Blog Love & $100 Gift Card Giveaway

Can you believe the holidays are already here! Are you ready? I’m not. Not at all. In fact, I haven’t even thought about gifts yet. Now, that this post has me thinking about it, I’m always pretty safe when it comes to picking them out. I like to lean toward things like accessories.

Thank goodness I was reading the Shopbop blog. I was instantly inspired to check out their accessories, like their selection of women’s hats. Great gift ideas. I wouldn’t mind a stunning cloche. I’m just saying…

Everyone loves accessories! Who doesn’t love Tilo Scarves or a gorgeous suede clutch from Maison Scotch? They are no-brainer gifts.

I’d love to get you started on that holiday shopping. One lucky reader will win a $100 Shopbop gift card!

Cuff Inspiration 2

I know we all have shopping on the brain at this point of the week. Thanksgiving is a little over a day away and Black Friday is all you’re going to hear from here on out. I’m going to pass on posting BF sales here on the blog, I think everyone else is going to do a great job of that. Instead, I’m bringing you jewelry. Actually…gold cuffs. I’ve been looking for a few lately. You already know my love for cuffs since my big hands don’t fit in regular bracelets. And all of these would compliment a range of…

My Black Friday Shopping Tips

Some of you might think “Black Friday” is just a regular old shopping day. Wrong. It’s not. The day after Thanksgiving is the holy grail of shopping days to retailers. It’s the day where they expect to turn the most profit. That means amazing deals, discounts, and specials. A few years ago, retailers were opening the doors at 6 a.m., now they are opening at 12 a.m. Walmart is opening their doors at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. These retailers are not joking around! And neither are the shoppers. I just read about a lady who starting camping outside of a…

Beauty Buzz: L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara

I wrote this post for my other blog, but I wanted to share it with you here. I had an opportunity to try out out L’Oreal Paris’ Voluminous False Fiber Lashes ($8.95) mascara. They want you to “Never Fake It Again.” According to L’Oreal, “Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara reinvents the false eyelash look, making it possible to achieve the clean impact of professionally-applied false lashes. A combination of super-fine nylon and rayon fibers perfectly adhere to natural lashes, enveloping them from root to tip thanks to an exclusive polymer in the formula. Meanwhile, an architectural precision brush with a 40-degree…

F21 Dress Replay in Chicago

Last week, I made my way to Chicago for the Latinos in Social Media National Conference. I was bummed that I couldn’t take any time to see my girls out there (you know who you are). For the award’s gala, I wore this Forever 21 dress, that you might have seen me wear here. It was such a fun night! I love hanging out with my fellow bloggers! I was nominated for two awards: Best Latin@ Lifestyle Blogger and Best Latin@ Social Networker. I did walk away with the best lifestyle blogger award. What an honor!! Really!! I’m truly blessed. Thank…

Dorothy Perkin’s Disco Fever

I’m a biiiiiiig fan of the 1970’s disco era. When I was little, I used to love looking at old photos of my mom wearing her mini skirts and hot pants. Soooo 70’s! There’s just something about the music and fashion that combine to make good times. And don’t forget about the sparkle of it all. The fashion from that era definitely mimicked a disco ball. Looks like Dorothy Perkins found the disco inspiration in these pieces below. FYI…Dorothy Perkins only goes up to a US size 18. And their web site is now available to the US. Which dress…
