OOTD : Surf City

Image
Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend!

Last Tuesday, I checked out Surf City Nights - the farmers market in  downtown Huntington Beach. I had not gone in awhile so decided to visit again for some fresh fruits to bring home and hear local music.

I have a silly story about this dress. I wore a short sleeve dress and forgot it gets chilly at the beach. That's where Forever 21 comes in. I bought this cute olive striped dress for $6.99 in the sale section. Problem solved!

San Diego: Phil's BBQ

Image
Have you ever eaten something so delicious that you forgot to snap a photo of it? Yes, that's me! You have to trust me that Phil's BBQ in San Diego is the best BBQ ever. 
We ordered the baby back full rack, bbq beans, and potato salad. It was bomb dot com! The bbq fell off the bone and sides were so delicious. If you're ever in San Diego, check it out! 
One helpful tip: call ahead to get take out as their line runs long!

OOTD - Celebrate life

Image
Happy Friday!

Sadly, my mom and I attended a memorial for a dear family friend a few weeks ago. I had known my Uncle Ben Aniceto since I was a little girl. I even ran into him at South Coast Plaza last November. I was saddened to hear of his passing from my dad. He was my dad's best friend and I always had such kind memories of him growing up.

I wanted to share some words from his memorial that I think are good mantras for everyday:
Keep on living
Keep on singing
Keep on fighting
Keep on loving
-Ben Aniceto

Live for today and yesterday is the past

Have ambition and fight for what you want.

Be fearless.

Be a trailblazer.

3 Dry Shampoo Faves

Image
Happy Thursday all!

Wanted to share my favorite dry shampoos for those busy days when you can't wash your hair and need to run out the door. I've had those one too many times.


Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo - I discovered this while looking for new hair products. I love that this dry shampoo is so easy to apply. I just spray my roots and scrunch up my hair to absorb the oil to refresh my hair quickly. It's matte so perfect for my dark brunette hair.

One Love Organics Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo - I found out about this product after attending Roots The Beauty Underground launch party last year and was gifted this awesome product. This dry shampoo has Georgia kaolin clay to soak up oily strands and hyaluronic acid to keep hair healthy looking.

Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion - On a trip to South Coast Plaza, I was on a mission to look for a new hair product and went to  Aveda. The sales girl tried this magical powder on my hair. It comes out as a white powder but…

OOTD - Blush

I'm blushing over this lace dress I wore for Easter.

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector & Touche Eclat Blur Primer

Image
You've heard me sing my praises for YSL and getting that J Lo glow. I'm back at it again, but this time sharing new YSL products to add to your make up routine.


YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector - I'm not much of a powder person but I love this portable beauty product that I can stash in my purse or car. It starts off as a balm and turns into a powder when you apply it. It gives me a subtle rosy glow effect. You can use it alone for an allover glow , to set make up or to mattify your make up. I love that this universal shade works on all skin types too.

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer - I love products that make my make up stay longer especially ones that give me that glow. This primer instantly gives me that J Lo glow. My face feels smoother and softer . I love that it has nourishing oils for my sometimes dry skin.

(Editor's note: I received this product courtesy of Influenster for product testing. All opinions and photo are mine.)

The Boutique

Image
Last Saturday, I attended a launch party in Downtown Santa Ana. Lien, designer of Laila Lupe, opened up her own shop called The Boutique. This cute shop carries local designers and shares the space with Rumorz Kutz.

I loved the launch party vibe with a live DJ playing hip hop with gold and silver metallic balloons floating on the ceiling. The decor included a shoe collection on the wall  and black and white art surrounding the dressing room and boutique. R- threadz and Laila Lupe are resident labels in the shop along.  Orange County designer  Ohsocaliclothing feminine tops and skirts are also featured.

Definitely check out this cool boutique !

OOTD- Bless up

Image
Happy Monday! I am obsessed with DJ Khaled's snapchat. I love that he takes the time everyday to say hi to his angels (flowers) and always embraces his blessings . He always blesses up. That term could mean different things to people but to me , it means to bless up and thank God everyday.

Goodbye March, hello April!

What's your favorite show to unwind to? I love Scandal, Grandfathered, House of Cards, and The People V O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. I am getting obsessed with the FX OJ Simpson show. The acting, cinematography, and set is so stellar. I'm going to be sad when the final episode airs next week.

I wore this outfit a few weekends ago for family dinner at my sister in law's house. Rompers are just so comfy and easy to style.
