Flan is one delicious, nutritional and an easy to make dessert! It’s
a typical caramel custard-based dessert in the Spanish and Latin
American population! Growing up, It was one of my mom’s favorite
dessert choices for the family; and I quickly got to learn how to make
it myself. It was no surprise that my family, especially the kiddos
would ask for this from time to time; and truth be told, I love it as much as they do! 🙂 This is a rich dessert made with milk, eggs, vanilla, and sugar… which I believe is best consumed in moderation.
Sunday best! A 2-pieces dress & bolero matching set: a classic that never goes out of style. A conservative cut with a bit of a curve hugging feeling. An elegant yet playful ensemble, a style rather appropriate for the more conservative environment; nevertheless fabulous! The color, black & white a timeless wardrobe essential with a wavy stripe or maybe chevrons design: a design that is probably the catch on the eyes! A rich and delicate fabric with a nice feel on the touch, quite soft and luminous. A classic ensemble, adorned with these much confortable Aldo heels, a Sunday best, a perfect choice for this beautiful day of May to attend a special young lady’s confirmation to whom I was the sponsor.

Name one person you know who doesn’t love to save money! Saving money isn’t a poor person habit contrary to common belief! Saving money is a smart move whether you are well-off or not! Everyone should have some money-saving habits! I love saving money and I love learning about new ways to do just that. Every little penny matters, right? 🙂 Did I say that I love saving money!? Yes, I did! 🙂 I’m looking for a bargain and/or a great deal in any buy; and for me, one of the most efficient ways to use money in our everyday lifestyle is by using coupons! You know how you don’t want to pass on those awesome deals that Target, Ulta, Sam’s Culb, Babies R Us, etc… offer through their coupons?! There’s even a much better and money-saving way to enjoy those deals! GROUPON COUPONS!
Yesterday was this beautiful, smart, and loving young lady that I call my daughter’s birthday! She had a blast! During our family dinner in honor of her birthday at one of her favorite place, she asked me:
I’ve been posting a bit more about lifestyle here lately, and if you’ve noticed, that’s good… That means you’re paying attention 🙂 I think #Ootd posts are fun and cute, but I feel like there’s so much more to talk about than just fashion. Really! That been said, I’m working hard behind the scene on a few projects (stay tuned); and that also includes re-thinking the direction I want to go with my blog. And no, I’m not quite transitioning altogether from a personal style to a lifestyle blog. My personal life is actually about both: living a healthy lifestyle and looking good doing it! 😉 However, now I’m just diversifying my contents and I hope you all appreciate the effort 🙂

This post has been inspired by my good friend Mireille AKA Zara la Chocolatée! Shout out to you Z! Not only for being a valuable friend, but also for being a great support system, cheerleader, and most importantly, for trusting me with your questions (they’re always welcome!) and believing in what I do! 😉 When Z asked me to help her put together a packing list for her next trip, I thought it was an easy task and, as I was completing the list, I came to realize how challenging and frustrating it can be to folks, especially if packing isn’t really your cup of tea. Then came in mind the idea of the next post on the blog. You all know I love to share anything that I believe would be useful and helpful. Perfect timing, right?!
So here are a few “must-take-with-you” items and packing & travel tips:
–Jeans and shorts! If you love them, bring them, no matter what people will tell you! (They smell bad when wet, they’re too heavy and take up a lot of room etc…) You will miss them if you don’t! Bring at least 2 pairs of each with you. They’re comfy, convenient, and always in style.
– Tank tops, T-shirts, cami and/or off the shoulder tops will be your best friends. You can’t go wrong with any of those in a steamy hot weather.
