From day one, this blog has been my space. All about the things I love and who I am. There’s no reason for me to try and be anyone else. And if there’s one thing you should all know, and probably already do know about me, it’s my love of sports. Especially, my love for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The hubby and I are proud season ticket holders. So, when Mexican beer brand Montejo offered this amazing opportunity, I kind of screamed “Yes!” Read more

I also love adding pops of color to my outfit and right now it’s all about my favorite shade of green—olive! It’s not too bright and it’s not too dark, making it the perfect new neutral. In this latest outfit post, with the help of pieces from Target’s Ava & Viv collection, I’m going to show you how effortlessly I mixed this color into these two looks. Read more

Lipspiration

I love a bright and bold red lip. Don’t you? Believe me, I know it’s not for everyone. I just get bummed out when I hear my friends saying that they can’t wear bright lipstick. My response? “YOU CAN wear bold and bright colors!” Yes, you can! This summer is the perfect time to get adventurous. I even created a new Pinterest board to inspire your future lipstick looks. I’ll be updating it often, so make sure to follow that board if you’re on Pinterest. So, which one of these bold shades will you try this summer?
