All About The Print

So when I was pregnant I bought a few pieces of clothing that I knew wouldn’t fit me or look good on me for a little while, and they sort of served as motivation to get back into shape.  Well, this dress was one of those pieces. I’m all about the print and especially a cool, unique one. This dress caught my eye right away because of its super fun mirror style print. The length is great for a little date night and the fact that it’s skin-tight made it for a serious “get back into shape” challenge.  When I bought dress from ASOS a few months ago it was full price, but now its an amazing $18! Yeah….cray.  So get on it!

Even though this dress does fit me now (yay!) I still used a little help from Jockey Skimmies to keep everything in place and to now show any seams in such a tight dress.  Skimmies are great! They aren’t as tight as spanx so you can actually breath, and they do a great job of just smoothing everything out. Definitely a piece you want to have in your wardrobe!

Cool Summer Accessories

I love cool accessories, and I specially love items that are unique and you just don’t see everywhere.  This summer I’m super obsessed and loving wood accessories!  They are just so unique and add huge touch of  ‘cool’ to any look.

I’m super in love with all the watches from JORD, they are beautifully made and come in a huge variety of styles. I opted for the Cora series in rose gold, which is the perfect size for a woman and has a beautiful face with Swarovski crystal markers.  It’s just such a nice addition to any of my summer wardrobes and they are super well made!

My sunglasses are from Woody! They are all made of bamboo which is not only an awesome look, but they actually float on water. So fun for a day at the pool or beach, I love them.  They also come in a ton of styles, mine is the Witmark, which is actually on sale right now!!

Makeup Must Have

I’m a total makeup junkie…actually beauty product junkie.  I love trying new things and new products and can never ever have enough samples! I could literally spend hours at Sephora or Ulta trying new products.  However, I do have my go to ones that I just love so much.  Some products on my Makeup Must Have list I’ve been using for years, while others are pretty new but I already can’t live without!


So I’m literally been wearing DiorShow by Dior for about 10 years now and I just can’t live without that mascara, its just perfection.  However, lately I’ve been a huge and I mean HUGE fan of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.  It makes my eyelashes super thick and long and they stay up pretty much all day.  It’s legit almost Better Than Sex! haha


I don’t use primer too much because my daily face product is a BB cream which includes primer already.  However, when I do wear foundation my go to primer is Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. It’s super lightweight and I feel like it definitely helps make my skin more even, hydrated and looking really good in pictures. 😉


So let me begin by saying if I was stranded on an island I would probably take a concealer.  I’ve always had problems with under eye circles! Now with a little baby that wakes me up a few times a night, I can easily say that I look like a hot mess with purple under eye circles 90% of the time! If you were to look in my makeup cabinet you will easily find 10 or more concealers that I go through and test out.  Well the Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer has been one that I truly love! It’s not super thick – which tends to make me look super cakey and it has perfect coverage.  I have to say it’s not super long-lasting, but the coverage is so good that I’m totally ok having to reapply a few times during the day.


Huge huge huge major and probably most important makeup item you can own that you probably totally underrate is a good eyebrow pencil or filler.  Eyebrows can make or break a persons look – you can go from looking fresh and put together to an old hot little mess if your eyebrows aren’t just right. haha.  I have little patches in my eyebrows from the days when having thin brows were cool (why? why? why?) so now I have to fill them in a bit.  This eyebrow wax from EcoBrow is AMAZING. The coverage is just great, lasts all day and their pencil makes it super easy to apply. Don’t be intimidated by the little jar and the pencil.  Its super easy to apply and if you get it wrong just take it off and try again!


Not a huge powder person either, I only wear powder when I wear foundation – which is mostly only when I shoot or go out on the town.  However, when I do wear powder I love the Mineralize Skinfinish by MAC.  Great coverage and super natural looking!

Beauty Cream

BB Cream is my everyday “foundation”.  I love it that it’s so many products in one and with the 5 minutes I have in the mornings to look human again, this is just perfect! I also absolutely love the fact that I don’t have to spend hours finding the perfect shade for me or that when I get a tan it still matches my skin. BB Cream comes in max about 3-4 colors, so you can never go wrong! My all time favorite is the Dior Hydra Life BB Cream, not the cheapest out there but a little goes a long way! What I love the most about it is that it’s not just makeup, it’s also a hydrating moisturizer….so you are getting a great face treatment while you look good. 🙂


Hoola Bronzer by Benefit has been my go to bronzer for a looooong time.  It has ZERO shimmer, which a lot of times is a super welcome feature, so I can use it as a bronzer and also to contour my face.  It’s actually the perfect contour color and the fact that it has no shimmer/glitter makes it even better for that.

Eyelash Curler

My friends joke that when I go out you can find a lipstick, concealer and an eyelash curler in my clutch.  Seriously, it’s not a joke, I have a crazy little obsession with curlers and tend to use them more often than whats probably recommend. I go through different ones a lot, but I’ve been absolutely loving the Show Curl XL Lash Curler by Sephora, Creates a perfect curl that lasts all night – so technically I don’t have to put it in my clutch….but I still will.


I LOVE the Opague Rouge Liquid Lipstick by Hourglass so much, I think I’m in my 4th one already.  If you don’t know the lipsticks from hourglass then you need to know them like yesterday.  They are super long-lasting, and the type of long-lasting that doesn’t dry your lips. I have 2 colors that are my go to colors for everyday.  Canvas and Rose.  Canvas is more of a nude so I wear it almost everyday, and Rose is a nude with a hint of dark pink which is a color I wear when I want to add little life to my look. Regardless these are both great colors and a fantastic lipstick!

Lip Balm

My go to lip balm is Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in Petal by Fresh, which is a super hydrating lip balm that comes in a ton of different shades.  From clear, to coral to red they have an amazing array of colors to choose from.  If you’re not a lipstick person,then you should have this in every color!

Eye Mask

 …last but not least, a little gadget that makes me sleep like a princes – my eye mask from Bella il Fiore. I just love it so much and I specially love all the cute little sayings they have on their masks. A must for a good night sleep these days!

Summer Boho Fellings


You all know by now how much I love a flowy dress, especially during the summer months! This dress from BCBG was a must have for me this summer, its so flowy and light for the hot florida days and has that boho feel that i just love.  I dressed this up a little for a luncheon I went to, but this dress can easily be transitioned into a casual day look or a more glammed up night look. I would totally wear this with some super trendy gladiator flats during the day and a fun fringe cross body or for a night look I would go with funky black heels and a black clutch.  So many ways you can wear this dress. Just perfect (except for my white legs…I need a tan asap!!!).

Mother Daughter Moment


I just absolutely love taking pictures with my little princes, and I feel so lucky that I have this blog which makes it so much easier for me to capture these little special moments.  This pictures were actually taken about a month ago close to Mother’s Day…but I’m only now getting around to posting them. It was so funny shooting the little princess this day, she wasn’t in the best of moods and my sisters were trying the entire time to entertain her – only to get grumpy looks from V. haha. The most hilarious picture to me is the “family portrait” we atempted….she looks like she wants nothing to do with it!!  But of course, once Daddy took her to get some pictures she was all smiles and happy.  She’s such a daddy’s girl already!

Delta Chair & 4moms

Delta Lux Swivel Chair, ysl book, 4moms mamaroo, baby chair, baby room, vogue books, super fashionable, ananda saba Since princess V. arrived working on my blog has become harder and harder, especially because she’s a true little princess – always needing to be held and can’t sleep during the day.  I’m sure this is an issues most first time moms struggle with, but somehow we have to make it work.  I know that for me, my princess is always first which means a lot of other little things (including myself) are left to the side until some time comes along where she’s entertained without me or sleeping.  Regardless, the fact that I haven’t gotten a manicure in literally a month is insanity to me – definitely not something I’m used to! haha. But its ok, and its all part of this little journey with a baby.  They say it goes by so fast, so I’m definitely trying to enjoy and take in every moment! Like right now….as I’m writing this post little princess is sleeping in my arms and the laptop on my legs as I type. We just make it work. 🙂  What helps a lot is to have a good atmosphere for her and I.  I just love this chair from Delta and my 4Moms Mamaroo.  They have literally been two lifesaver in my quest to do it all.  Little V. loves her Mamarro and those are the few moments I get a little breather from holding her and can get some things done.

Two Piece Summer Outfit


Summer is finally here! Seriously love this time of the year, especially living in Florida, when summer rolls around it takes your quality of life to a whole other level. I seriously enjoy the outdoors, pool, lake, BBQ with friends…It’s perfect.  I’m so in love with everything about this two piece summer outfit. The two piece shorts and top are from H&M and if you know anything about me you know I die for this color.  I just think it makes anybody with any skin color look amazing and alive.  Add these super cute wedges from that are a perfect pattern for summer and you got a look that I’ll be wearing a lot in the next few months! 🙂
