Happy Monday beautiful people,

I hope you’re staying warm and safe out there.This midi Aztec prints dress is from L’effet Glamour’s dresses collection and is such a pretty dress. It is also available in a different color, that you may want to check out here🙂  The bold prints is sure to catch anyone’s attention, in a good way of course. The fabric is soft and stretchy and make a great form-hugging yet forgiving dress. I love the neckline and overlap detail as well. I’m actually wearing the dress here the other way around. I think the plunging V-neck (which was supposed to be the back) gives an extra dose of femininity to the dress. Isn’t it cool to know how versatile the dress is and that you can wear it both ways and still slay? I have previously styled it with classic pumps and it was as gorgeous as it is here, if I may say so myself. 😉 In this post I chose to go with these sleek white booties from Just Fab and I love the edgy yet feminine vibe it gives. Great contrast with the prints in the dress and perfect for a night out with the girls! 😉

Hello beautiful people, 

I hope you’re having a great start to the new week! January is going by so fast! How are you coming along with your 2018 goals so far?  I hope you’re still going strong!  🙂 

I have partnered with my friends at JJsHouses to style and share with you guys one of their gorgeous dresses; and boy when I tell you I had a hard time picking out a dress, that’s a total understatement! There were so many beautiful dresses with exquisite design that caught my eyes, until I finally just had to settle on this chiffon applique lace maxi dress! Breathtaking! It was very different from the other modern or traditional styles, yet it was right up my alley! I love the loose-fit, maxi style and the scoop neck, but the white applique lace all over the dress was all really sold me. The design brought back great memories of my mother and my aunties styling similar dresses for different festivities back home.

JJsHouse definitely has a large variety and selection of beautiful dresses for any and every occasion! Check them out! And I guaranty you might just fall in love with their dresses. As of this maxi chiffon lace applique dress, It was love at first sight; and I wasn’t the only one in love with the dress. All the guests at the holiday party I attended were all in aw and were inquiring about the dress. I had to have a couple of things altered on the dress… Other than that, it’s perfect!  What do you think?  Share your thoughts with me. 🙂

Hello beauties, 

We made it to the second week of 2018! It’s been an amazing and productive first week of the year so far; and I hope to keep that energy and excitement going on throughout the year. 

‘Oh, baby it’s cold outside’! Here in the Midwest, it technically isn’t sweater weather anymore; rather coat weather, but when you have sweaters as cute as this one, you just want to show them off.  You know I wouldn’t dare doing an outdoor photoshoot with cold weathers as we are experimenting here, but hey, thank goodness for indoor photoshoots. 🙂 These leatherette pants have been my favorite lately; and I love the contrast of the faux-leather and black against the mustard!

A pair of pants like this could be worn as semi-formal or as casual as you need it to be. Take a look… 😉

As always, thank you for visiting my blog and have a  fantastic week! 

Lots of love, 




Happy New year beautiful people! Welcoming you into the new year in this velvet burgundy holiday dress! Velvet is a big hit this season and it’s not going anywhere any time soon. Festive fabric and colors are so fun and chic to wear. This rich burgundy color compliments my satin coat so well, and added to the festive look are these shimmery tights.  

Are you excited for the new year? I know I am! Fresh start, new beginnings, new excitements! I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me and for us all. Let’s enjoy the ride one day at the time and try to find a glimpse of light in all things!  

Thank you for reading!

Love & Light, 




What a year 2017 has been! I’m still in aw that the year is over! As I take a look back, I realize how much I’ve truly grown, learned, and overcome. Sometime, you forget or overlook all the (great) things that happened until you look back and reflect upon them. In spite of all the chaos that may have happened, whether it’s in our own life or around the world, there’s always something to be grateful for when we pose for just a quick second and reflect; and we may just be amazed of how beautiful, life (still) is!

“Clear hindsight of your past makes it easier to have clear foresight for your future.”

2017  has been an epic year for me and for my brand!  My word of the year 2017 was “Manifest” (Read about it here) and I couldn’t be any more grateful for all the things that I accomplished and manifested. The amazing brands that I collaborated with, the shout-out and features, the constant support from my loyal readers and friends, new and amazing friends that I made or met, the launch of my online store and the growth in general that I have experienced as a blogger and entrepreneur, and even as a person! I wouldn’t sit here and lie that all of these were some easy walk-in-the-park moments (because they weren’t!), but with discipline, consistency and FAITH, it was all possible! Trust me, It hasn’t been easy even being disciplined and consistent or always keeping my head up with a positive attitude, but I know I’m a work in progress. Transformation is a journey without a final destination; and I can’t wait to see what my next chapter of the new book will read!

To all of you who have been of such great support since Day One, and all through out the years, I’m truly thankful for your continuous support, for sticking with me, and for allowing me to share my journey with you. It truly means a lot! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Let’s make 2018 an even better year!

From my family to yours, I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

  • Love yourself a little more 😉 
  • Live each day with intention and purpose
  • Start that new passion of yours
  • Develop new and fulfilling relationships
  • Live in the moment and to the fullest
  • Visit new and exciting places
  • Accomplish all your goals and win big!

 Cheers to a wonderful 2018!

Love & Light
