Bits and Pieces



1. I took this picture of my guitar when I was staying at my in law's house. Little did I know, the plans God had for me.
2. This little table cost only $5 bucks on a garage sale. We decided to leave it as it is, with it's little marks and what not. I decorated it with books and my hubby's Polaroid. I love how it looks!
3. I have been addicted to Pinterest and when I saw this project I knew I wanted to make it. I
love how practical it is.
4.I recently went to the first Fall Festival from my church Calvary Chapel Lake Buena Vista and it was so much fun, we even ended up doing a scavenger hunt at Down Town Disney!
5. But first, a Selfie lol.. this one is kind of a throwback since I have given my skin a huge break from makeup, but I truly miss playing with it.
6. These chairs we found them at our U-haul storage building. They have what they call a Green Corner, where people leave unwanted items but in good condition. We painted them and bought  these cute floral cushions and voila!
7. I love that clean look that glass can give so I took an empty sun dried tomatoes container and turn it into a make up brush holder. I also added a rustic string around the candle. This one was from a packaging I received from Gypsan a while ago. I never threw it away thinking I wanted to do something with it, since it looked so nice with the round tag.
8. Rainbow Cake! Another thing we are loving of living in Orlando is the fact that we have am oriental strip mall! You can eat the best Ramen, and yummy desserts.
9.Still obssed with this Victory jewelry bracelet and Bettina's Orchidea nail polish. I love how this color looks with gold tone jewelry.



Hi guys!
Here I have sort of an update of my life with pictures. As you guys know, towards the end of September we rented an U -haul truck, packed our stuff, and started a new journey to a new life in Central Florida.
The first 3 weeks we lived with my husband's parents, since we had to wait for our apartment to be given to us. All of our things waited in a storage, so I decided to take a break from blogging, even from make up, I have been barely wearing any. It has been good to just let my skin breathe!

Last week we finally moved to our apartment and we are so happy there. Decorating it has been so much fun since I have been incorporating DIY's all over, and visiting garage sales had really payed off.
We have found some pretty cool things.

I also started leading worship at another Calvary Chapel in Orlando and it's been been such a blessing
being able to find a church that feels like home. The kiddo is also having a blast, meeting new friends and being able to walk to school, that's how close we are to it!

Now that we are in a new place, I can't wait to start scouting places and resume our photo adventures...

Have a great Wednesday!

Hello my loves!

Today we are playing dress up with these three cool jean styles from True Religion. You guys know that a good pair of jean seems like a timeless trend and it is one that I absolutely love. The versatility of dressing it up or down is one of those characteristics that I absolutely love.

The Go- Getter!
 Tunics are my favorite piece of garment, and this outfit is one of those that can’t go wrong! I paired this dark wash skinny jean with an embroidered tunic and added boots for those cooler days. A dark wash denim is perfect for a more dressy ensemble.

The Eclectic
Mixing prints with textures can be very fun. For this outfit, I paired this camouflaged boot cut printed jean with a cozy bright sweater.  This outfit is perfect for those lazy days where you want to look great, but still want to be very comfy! To balance the look, I kept the accessories on the neutral side, but went with different styles to give it that eclectic look.

The Statement

I think you guys know by now that I love bright colors. For this outfit, I paired this royal blue jean with a beautiful peasant top. I played with even more bright colors with the accessories, but kept the top neutral to not go overboard. You won’t go unnoticed with this one!

Which look is you favorite?
Let me know!

Tarte Must Haves

Tarte Must Haves

Tarte eye care

Tarte face makeup

Tarte cheek bronzer

Tarte lip stain

Hello loves,
Today I wanted to give you guys an update
 about some tarte products that I am still loving in my
 make up /skin care routine!

This BB cream is still one of my favorites! Not only provides beautiful coverage (on its own), but it makes my pores less noticeable thanks to the primer that is included in the formula.

My skin looks so smooth when I wear it, since it also has moisturizing properties. The SPF30 is an awesome added bonus, got to be safe under the sun!
For even more coverage, apply under your favorite foundation.

This has been my go to bronzer for quite some time! It is the perfect bronzer for a natural every day look. I like to contour my nose every now and then, and this bronzer gives me the perfect result!

This eye cream really works! I had some fine expression lines coming in. I noticed that after finishing the jar, those lines were almost faded!  This cream is enriched with Maracuja fruit, vitamin C, and advanced botanicals. I really enjoy the texture of it which is very lightweight, making it perfect for either day or night time use.

Wish list:
I have been wanting to try tarte’s Lipsurgance lip tints! They look like the perfect purse companion. The mix of a stain and lip balm? Sounds like a great a combo to me, plus the colors look really fun!

The Buffer airbrush finish
I’m a sucker for brushes and this one has been raved all over the blogosphere!
It is perfect to achieve an airbrush finish. No need to say more, Want!

What are your tarte’s Must haves?

A new Fall...


 




Fall. My longing for it is getting pretty serious! but, while I wait... I am enjoying a new town. We finally moved to Orlando and we are so so excited! My son started school today and I couldn't wait for him to tell me how his first day was. I was so blessed to hear that he had a great time and made new friends. 

We still need to wait for our apartment, so we are staying at my in law's home. Now that we are settle a bit, I am looking forward for the new blogging adventures.. I have been away for a while now and miss it dearly.

 Stay tuned, and happy Tuesday!

Cozy Fall

Blue purse

Chilly weather, hot cocoa, crisp morning walks, cozy cardigans...
Fall is deeply desired here!
Even though these colors are
not typical for the season,
I am loving them so much.

The blue brings a beautiful pop 
and a hint of pink brings a girly balance
to this edgier look.


Happy Monday
