Hi There!! It’s been about a minute!… Well, actually its been about 4 months from my last blog post to be exact. 😞 I basically took a Spring/Summer Break off blogging. Not my intention, as I was looking forward to posting all these ambitious ideas of mine, like… pancake of the month, tips & tricks,…

SeliBeli LOVES (Part 3)

What to wear, what to wear!? Dressing for Seli’s party and taking a ton of photos with my little babe was so fun! Mother/Daughter photoshoots are a must!

So happy to share with you my Make-Up Must Haves!! When I find something that works for me, I stick with it. But if someone recommends me something better and surpasses the product I’m already using I do try it out. Now, keep in mind I’m a thirty-eight(ish) year old mom of 4… my skin isn’t…

Happy Camper

My boys have been asking me to re-decorate their room for a little while now. So, when the opportunity to partner with Target & their new home decor collection for kids, Pillowfort – it was easy to be a part of it!

Chasing Sunsets

Chasing Sunsets is a tradition at our house. When I used to work my corporate job & my husband picked me up from the office, it was usually around the time the sun was about to set. The Mattel HQ is by the beach near LAX, so of course we would go chasing after the sunset to…

The Love Letter

The Love Letter should never go out of style…I don’t care how many cute emojis they come up with so you can send an adorable text. There is nothing like writing and receiving a love letter. ❤️ I love Wikipedia’s definition of a love letter… “a romantic way to express feelings of love in a…

New Year Thoughts

New Year… New Beginnings… It’s like an automatic “reset” button. And why not? A New Year means hope, means a fresh start, means we are once more blessed with another year trying to do & be better.

70’s Vibe

I’ve always loved that 70’s Vibe in fashion…maybe because I was born in the late 70’s? Yes, I’m that old! lol…old, but wise and proud of it! Anyway, I digress. The 70’s has always been a decade that we constantly take inspiration from. My 70’s inspired look includes pairing a classic pair of bell bottom jeans from Zara, sleeveless…

Sunday Afternoon

Every Sunday afternoon is always different, but enjoyable because we are doing something together as a family that doesn’t involve, cleaning, cooking, homework, projects, bills, yard work, etc. This past Sunday afternoon we decided to go on the hunt for orange maple leaves (didn’t find much), eat some yummy hamburgers, and go book shopping. Some…

Plaid Jumper

I think every fashion lover out there enjoys the year-round seasons, because we get to switch it up with colors, textures, materials etc. Fall is probably the favorite. You get to layer on clothes and wear rich fall colors. Since I live in L.A. it doesn’t get incredibly cold in the fall…but we do get…

Watermelon Tee

Since Independence Day for Mexico fell smack in the middle of the week this year, we didn’t have a fun party like we did for 4th of July. We do get to have a fun festive dinner later tonight with la familia. So I thought I’d share my festive Mexican inspired outfit today. I think by now…

Sticker Art Canvas

I’m an 80’s kid & I’ve been collecting stickers since then. So, they’ve  been piling up, waiting for someday to be used. But I never knew what to do with them. Maybe I could put them on stationary, a letter or calendar. But I always thought, who is going to see them once that’s put away?…

Princess Bubbles

No summer afternoon is complete with out blowing bubbles with the kids. My 2 year old Selina may not really be talking as much as we all want her to, the screaming she does for what she wants is always a bit much. Unfortunately for us, those screams get her whatever she wants… like a little princess. She does however…

Pecan Bread Pudding

  Comfort food, especially easy to make desserts, are my absolute favorite. The kids love to help out in the kitchen and be my little sous chefs.
