Happy February darlings!

I know I have shared a few Valentine’s day posts in the row, and I hope you’re not over them:-)

Valentine’s Day:

This holiday is one that has a lot of controversies; and I understand and respect everyone’s opinions. I do love the fact that Valentine’s Day is not celebrated solely between couples anymore.


The popular idea of celebrating with your girlfriends (if you wish to) that have been floating around for a few years is genuine in my opinion. So if you decide to hit town or the club with your “Galentines” this year, this outfit may serve as a good inspiration for you. My daughter calls it “bad and boojee”, so why not?


Valentine’s Day outfit shopping.

Hello friends,

Before we know it, Valentine’s day will be here; and I hope you will be celebrating with loved ones. However you spend or whoever you spend the dedicated “love day” with, you deserve to look your best, without breaking the bank. After all, you have to budget for the gift too right?

Well, look no further. I put together a few outfit inspirations for you. You can shop right below by clicking each and every item that sparks your interest and have them delivered right to your door.

I hope you find this helpful and stay tuned to a Valentine’s Day gift guide coming up in a couple of days. XOXO


Always remember your “Why”!


As I stood in these cold streets trying to get these shots for Ethyl clothing, an up and coming brand I’m collaborating with, thousands and millions of thoughts rushed through my mind!


There will be times when you will be confronted with the resounding question of “Is this all worth it?”; and that is normal… and that is totally ok. This means we are humans; and as such, we, every now and then, question our steps.

However, whatever your answer to that million dollar question may be, pause for a quick second and remind yourself of your “Why?”. The  “What got you to embark on this journey in the first place”.


Remember that you owe it to yourself and to your vision to bypass or overlook your physical reality and current understanding. They’re always subject to change until “it feels right!”. Also, keep in mind that your “Why” is YOURS and YOURS ONLY to understand, believe in, cherish, and go after!


Now, ask yourself again if your “why” is strong enough to get you through all those challenges you’re facing and the uncomfortable moments and circumstances you go through. Only then will you realize you are in perfect alignment with your purpose!

Glittered Front-Slit Gown

Happy Monday beauties,

I hope you had a great weekend and looking forward to a great week ahead! – The end of year’s holiday festivities may be over, but I just have to share this stunning gunmetal glitter dress with you guys! Plus isn’t this little princess of mine too cute in her dress not to share?

I scored my dress during the Forever 21’s Black Friday Sale and, even though I was unsure of the quality, the price tag was good enough for me not to take the leap!

You know you can’t go wrong with glitter and sequin during the holidays, and as simple as this dress is, I love how elegant and classy it looks.

The color and the fabric were perfect for the occasion and the front slit is just the right amount of sexiness that the dress needs.

Now the back is super sexy too, as it’s open and very low; and I think it’s the perfect balance of the conservative front and neckline. (Sorry, I didn’t get any shot of the back. 🙁 )

While this is a fast fashion dress, and the quality is not top of the line, I still think it was worth the price and it’s flattering and very comfortable.

To keep warm and cozy, as we know the temperature can rapidly drop, I had this beautiful printed blazer handy; and while my husband didn’t think the blazer was the perfect one to pair with this dress, I actually thought it was cute and sparks a flair of interest. Wouldn’t you agree with me? 🙂

For a picture perfect moment, I glammed the dress up with some cute accessories. The necklace is an oldie but definitely a goodie; and the earrings were made and gifted to me by my lovely friend over at Zena fashions. – Guys, she makes the most beautiful jewelries!

Last, but not least, the “red bold lips” was the finishing touch for that glam chic look!

As always, thank you for reading; and let’s make this new week a wonderful one!

Love & Light,

Faith it Till You Make It!


Happy Friday beauties,
Truth is, this is a lost file; and I never intended to share these pictures here. My perfect plan was to recreate this outfit one of these days or at least to re-style the top (which is the main focus of the look) with a different bottom for a better photoshoot.

Oftentimes, the message is just so much more important than the messenger, so today, I decided to share a word with you in spite of the feeling I have that this look could “say” so much more than it does… but it could be just my opinion. My other feeling was that this message was too important for me not to share it with you today…
And if I had to do it, it had to be with some type of visuals, so here I come!


Faith It Till You Make It!

It is almost to my certainty that you have already heard this popular saying: “Fake it till you make it”. Well, today I want to tell not to do that. Don’t fake it until you make it, because what’s really the point of that? Instead, you have all the right to “Faith it till you make it” – If you are a believer, you can reflect on John 20:29 that says “Blessed are those who believe without seeing”. But here’s the thing, whether you believe in God or the Word of God or not, whatever higher power you believe in, reality is that you must live your best life in the spiritual or you must imagine and visualize it before you can actually manifest it in the physical. – Just remember that faith without work is truly dead.

For the non-believer, we say that Graham Bell imagined, saw, and made the telephone in his mind before he invented it. It all starts in the “mental”!
So whatever you’re after, see it in your minds eyes first! See it materializing in your reality, but most importantly, believe that it will BE!
Faith it until you make it!

Because of my long hair, you probably cannot see the entirety of the writing on my top, but it’s FAITH… so I think the look does “says” a lot after all! 😉
