Happy Friday guys,

If you’re following me on Instagram (which I think you should! 😉 ), you’ve probably seen a little bit of recap of my busy yet fun weekend activities on my feed and insta stories! One of the reasons why I love what I do, is that I get to experience new things, and meet some awesome individuals and also being able to share those experiences and my take with you guys. The biggest’s highlight of my weekend was the twin cities auto show, which I talked a little bit about here. I was fortunate enough to be part of a group of awesome influencers who were invited to the Toyota’s auto show VIP Preview. I have never been to an auto show before; and my first experience, even though it was work related, was a blast, and I’m looking forward to reliving the experience! Twin-cites-auto-show-recap-and-look

Among many wonders, I got to see and play with the totally newly redesigned Toyota Camry! Their Sport Pro Sequoia and luxury Avalon were also displayed and vastly complimented by the attenders.


With Lexus now being part of the Toyota family, I got to see a few high-end cars in the Twin Cities Auto Show’s Luxury Lane! Now, guess what was front and center… Go ahead… Just take a wild guess! As we all know, the Wakanda fever has been floating around these last few weeks with the Black Panther playing in theaters.

Believe it or not, I got to see up close and personal the Lexus LC500 featured in the movie during a car chase in Hong Kong! It was just a different feeling altogether looking at this masterpiece, the Black Tiger’s scratch marks and the bullet holes on the side… Enough said, just take a look for yourself!

I went live a couple of times on Instagram and on Facebook; and it was amazing seeing how many people were tuning in and how much interest they showed.

My local readers, if you haven’t been to the twin cities auto show yet, it’s so much fun with amazing new cars waiting for you to test-drive or just admire and take selfies with… but don’t just take my words for it! You still have today and the weekend to go check it out. As I mentioned here, the show is ending on March 18th and you can see all the information you need in this article.


It was no doubt a wonderful day, but I was tired and hungry (I had a “bloggers event” the night before and woke up early for the Toyota Auto Show VIP Preview ), so hubby and I headed straight to a favorite restaurant to enjoy some goodness; but you’ll know I was glad to snatch some quick outfit post pics before I get food all over myself. Just kidding. 😀 



By the way, if you’re wondering what you should wear to the auto show or similar events, I would suggest that you definitely keep comfort in mind, as you will be doing a lot of walking and browsing. I knew that prior to going to the event, but I still went with my striped heels and kept a pair of nice flats in my bag, just in case!Twin-cites-auto-show-recap-and-look

My feet were tired at some points, and you could hear that I was breathing heavily in one of my live videos on social media, but I was resilient until the end, and never got to change into those flats. Mainly because I was working non-stop and was taking pictures with the group and for myself.


Anyway, I’m glad I had the opportunity to participate in this campaign and hope you take something away from this recap. – On another note, what do you think of my outfit of the day? XOXO

There are are so many ways to wear a classic white shirt and black slacks; and you can never go wrong with a black and white combination! It’s the classic that never goes out of style; and every woman needs at least one white shirt, and a pair of black pants in their closet. This classic combination can take you from work to dinner, or happy hour; and it doesn’t have to be boring.

In this post, I’m featuring two classic pieces with a stylish twist from Universal Standard.  The added silhouette-enhancing feature (black band detail) on the sides of the shirt is sophisticated and eye-catching! This shirt can be dressed up or down and it has an invisible built-in stretch, witch I appreciate, because that gives a freedom of movement. Who doesn’t appreciate that?

Now, I owned quite a few black pants and I love when I come across work pants that are not only comfortable but have a stylish twist to them… And these pants are not your average work pants. They feature a removable cuff – which have gotten a few comments and questions! Both modern and comfortable, I love that these pants are made from a mid-weight ponte material and sit nicely at the waist. And oh they also have pockets! 

For a different take on the white and black look, I added an untied bow tie (and a hat), which is an unique touch to a classic black and white look. – What are your thoughts on this outfit?

Happy Wednesday, beautiful people!

It’s been a minute, but I’m back with some exciting news! This weekend, I’m joining a group of awesome influencers for an exclusive preview of the Twin Cities Auto Show. How exciting! Toyota and Girls Guide To Cars are making this possible, and I’m super excited about this partnership! 

Now, when I say I’m very excited about the Twin City Auto Show, I’m actually saying that I’m super duper excited about Toyota and their presence and role at the show! Hubby and I can barely wait until Saturday! You may not know this about me, but I’m a RAV-4 girl! 😉 I had a blast driving my 2012 RAV-4 for a couple of years before trading it up for something bigger, family getting bigger and all! By the way, best trade-in value I’ve had on any of my trades so far!

I’ve got my eyes on the new Toyota Camry for a little while now; and I can’t wait to test-drive it and my other Toyota products at the Auto Show! I’m probably going to be one of those car commercial test-drivers that would hug the car for hours! 😀 Don’t judge me; we’re talking the new Camry!


My husband has had his sight set on the Sequoia, the Tundra and … wait for it… the new Avalon! He loves himself big SUV’s, powerful trucks, and of course, swanky, stylish, and spacious full-size sedans! I can already picture the kid in the candy store! 🙂

Love + Light,





Can you actually believe that Valentines Day is just a few hours away?! To be honest with you, I don’t have any outfit planned yet for the day or for the weekend for that matter. I have been really lay back lately when it comes to Fashion, at least in my every day life.



I’m dedicating so much time to my personal growth and meditating a lot more that I feel like I need a little break from the busyness of life, the internet, and any other things that may be distracting in this very important and much needed time for me. I’m still posting on my blog and Instagram to the best of my ability, but it has been a little while since I actually did a blog photo shoot or create an in-depth content.



Well, beside the fact that I’m actually making the most out of my little internet break, here’s why I feel like I’m winning right now: This outfit was shot a few weeks ago during the holidays and I’ve never gotten to share it on the blog. What’s better than a little red (or pink) dress in lieu of a Valentines Day-inspired look, when we all know red is the color of the season?!


I stumbled upon this little number at Target during the holidays, and I thought it was cute. I styled it over my over-the-knee-boots for that haute look, and added my black fluid trench coat to keep warm, and I think the whole look was a winner… at least in my book:-)




This look is perfect for a fun and chic Valentines or “Galentines” Day outing, and I hope it inspires you in your selection for the romantic day!

Let me know what you think; and oh what are your plans for the V-day?

Are you over Winter yet? I know I sure am; and this Leota print Spring dress just brought me a few weeks (or months …ughs) ahead of the current bitterly cold weather. Such a simple, chic and pretty dress.You certainly know that wrap dresses are the most comfortable and forgiving ones; and this one didn’t disappoint at all! It is also so versatile and perfect for any casual or semi-formal occasion. Spring calls for beautiful, fun, and brights colors and prints; and I can’t wait for it! What are some of your favorite Spring colors or pieces?
