Cheers to 2018!

My first post for 2018 is here! I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year, new adventures and positive vibes ahead. ✨

I’m sharing another post from Little Havana in Miami as this was my favorite spot I visited last year. The streets were full of culture and experiences you can’t find anywhere else. Everything is so colorful and vibrant. I want to thank my friend and blogger Marie Lopez for the recommendations. She is a fun one to follow, and you will love her style.

Many of you have asked me about the wedges I’m wearing. Let me tell you that you can get the whole outfit for less than $100. I randomly found these Franco Sarto wedges at Nordstrom Rack a while ago, but they have them online in suede – even better! This ribbed one shoulder bodysuit from Tobi.com is currently on sale for only $15, and the jeans were one of my #Zarasale finds from my Black Friday shopping trip.

What are you looking forward to in 2018?

Domino Effect

Hello from sunny Miami! I found the famous Domino Park while walking the streets in Little Havana. I must say this place stole my heart – great coffee, delicious food & authentic vibe all around. Not to mention the multiple Insta spots 🙌 I hope I can be back one day and explore the rest of this beautiful city.

Wishing everyone a glamorous NYE celebration. Cheers to 2018 🍾💫

Holiday Cheer and Gifts From Downtown Summerlin

It’s the most wonderful time of year…or so they say. It may not be so wonderful, when you have to wander around the mall trying to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Don’t panic, I’ve got you! I guarantee you if you head to Downtown Summerlin you can find everything you need in only a couple hours. You just have to make sure you don’t get distracted trying on that off-the-shoulder sweater that you really loved last time you were there. ☺️

For the beauty lover
Jo Malone at Dillard’s – granted their scents are like no others, but the hand massages that they do on the spot will leave you so relaxed, you can go shopping for the whole day!
g Aveda Salon & Spa – from natural and organic skin care products to makeup and hair, they have it all. If you’re still on the fence, grab a gift card for their most amazing facials, nail care or hair services.

For the foodie
Oil & Vinegar – I felt like I was in a supermarket in a small Italian village. So many flavors to choose from…This is heaven for those who love to cook and try new spices. There are plenty of different gifts and sets to choose from. If you’re lucky like me, they might let you try them, delicious!

California Pizza Kitchen – You may want to save this for last. That way you can reward yourself with their sangria flight. After all, you’ve been shopping all day. If you still have someone left on your list, a gift card from CPK will make anyone happy.


For the fashionista
Leather Couture by Jessica Galindo – Ok, ladies I might be a little obsessed with this store, but once you see Jessica’s designs you will have your Christmas wish list endless.

For the home maker
West Elm at Downtown Summerlin – can we talk home decor? Just look at this table setting and say no more! Not to worry though, they do have affordable priced items such as these cute little cacti 🌵

Finally, enjoy and Happy Holidays! 🎄🎅

My Take on Black Friday

Black Friday *need copy & image* 😂 If you navigate through Twitter, you probably know what I’m talking about.

The images are here, now let’s get to the copy.

I hope everyone enjoyed some quality family time on Thanksgiving. In case you decided to burn some calories after the big meal and hit the mall, that’s probably not a bad idea. If you hate crowds and prefer to do your shopping online, I’ve got you covered too. Here is a list of stores worth checking out this weekend:

  • Zara – 30% off entire collection. It may seem that Zara is all I wear, but I only hit the store twice a year during the sales. It’s a good time to stock up on basics and score some trendy items as well. Btw, the skirt I’m wearing below is from Zara.
  • Asos – 30% off entire site. Another go-to for me that makes my work outfits stand out. 😎
  • Boohoo – 60% off full price items
  • Ami Clubwear – 60% off everything. Check out the velvet sock booties I’m wearing below.
  • Steve Madden – 30% off plus free shipping

What I’m shopping for:

  • Sock booties
  • Mesh tops and dresses
  • Pieces with mixed textures and prints
  • Jewel embellished tops and pants
  • Velvet, suede and leather outfits

I’d love to hear from you and what are some pieces you’re looking for this fall and winter season.

xoxo ♥️

Shopping in Las Vegas

I keep waiting for fall weather so I can rock my OTK boots, but it is still in the 80s here in Las Vegas. I know most of you are probably busting the scarves and rain coats, but not me. If you need to enjoy some warm weather, you should consider flying to Vegas. Did I mention all the great shopping you can do here?

The outfit I am wearing features all my favorite local boutiques. If you find yourself in Vegas, you should definitely check them out. You can thank me later! 🙂

  • Parque – For the ladies who “enjoy the simple things in life, but whose style is anything but “just simple.” So well said! You can find all your staple pieces here. This boutique carries emerging designers as well as well-established fashion labels.
  • Gypsy05 – A high-end boutique offering a large variety of boho chic clothing items. Organic cotton, handmade pieces, gorgeous prints, comfortable fabrics yet stylish looks – you will be all about it, especially if you’re a mom. Gypsy05 has plenty of accessories you will fall in love too. The store is located at Tivoli Village in Summerlin, an Italian-like shopping center where you can find some good coffee and eats.
  • Palm Eyewear – A local brand takes sunglasses to the next level. Trendy and affordable – what more can a girl ask for? The style I’m wearing is called Malibu, but there are so many designs to choose from. Happy hunting!
  • Desert Daisy Jewelry – If you are into boho chic style, you will find yourself in heaven here. The talented owner, Emma Roberts, designs her pieces from scratch and can custom make pretty much anything. From statement necklaces, to unique hair sticks, this is a great place to find some cool accessories.

If you’re looking for anything specific in Las Vegas, please drop me a note and I will try to help you.

Thanks for stopping by. ❤

October in White

Hello, October! 🍂 Yes, it’s cooling down but for Vegas this means going from triple digits to mid-80s. So, here I am in my white ASOS dress and open-toe booties. I found this ruffle bell-sleeved dress on ASOS not long ago and thought it was cute and unique. Yet, I’m not sure how I feel about the fit or where I would wear it. It is still available here if you’d like to check it out.

On another note, can you tell my Palm Eyewear sunnies match my new hair color? I didn’t plan it, perhaps it’s the light. 😎

Have a lovely week, everyone! Let the sunshine be with you. ❤

Romantic Maxi Dress

This is what happens when it gets windy in Vegas. Apparently, this A’gaci asymmetrical floral maxi dress was perfect to wear in this weather. You can see every detail. I don’t know what I love more about it – the cold shoulder silhouette with draped cap sleeves or the side opening on the front. I was looking for a dress like this for a while, and A’gaci has so many of them.

I can’t think about fall clothes yet as we are still experiencing triple-digit temps. Until we get any signs of fall weather, I will be rocking my favorite summer outfits and this is one of them.

What do you think? Are you ready to bust your fall closet?
