Stopping 90 % of hair damage before it happens..

There are so many shampoos available in today's market that I often find myself lost in the aisle trying to select which one is better. After seeing a couple of options, I decided to try out tbe Dove Intensive Repair duo, since my hair at the time was suffering from dry damage hair with no solution. After a couple weeks of using the product, I can honestly say my hair has improved in texture and it no longer feels dry and coarse. 

Quite frankly the Dove Intensive repair has a core to build stronger foundation for healthy, beautiful hair that is 5x smoother than before. The formula features a unique, patented nourishment system comprised of three innovative technologies – Silicone Polymers, Keratin Repair Actives and Microsheet Structured Conditioners – that work together unlike any other product range to make hair progressively more resilient to damage after each wash and prevent split ends.

Sometimes finding the right shampoo is worth it!

End of Summer

I can't believe Summer is already coming to an end, I had so many ideas of  enjoying  Summer this year, but instead I found myself being in a neutral zone and hibernating. While I imagined exploring many new places, I realized I had to take a break here and there from work, blogging, travel, and exercising etc.. I had to take two steps back to focus on my health: mind, body and soul because I was an emotional train wreck after my miscarriage. My pregnancy was literally the happiest and nerve wracking surprise I've ever gotten and it was all taken away from me too quickly at seven weeks. This was a big hurdle for me, but I've been doing good the last couple months. My emotional recovery is a working progress, but I am here again sharing my experience with you through my blog.

It's not always easy to open up to strangers, but it's become pretty easy after becoming a blogger in 2014. And for that, I am grateful to have a platform where I can express myself and not worry about critics. Just last month, I recorded my experience with my pregnancy and miscarriage on my podcast. Trust me ladies, there is no sugar coating it, I give it to you like it is TRUE, RAW and REAL. I decided to share my personal story because Women...Mujeres..Chicas need to know about this gap of vulnerability after a miscarriage. It happens more often than you think and it's very common, but no one talks about it. It's all kept in Hush... Hush..., Don't speak about it or they will look at you fragile, but that's not the message I am trying to portray. I want to let you know, you will be the strongest fiercest bitch because God will be by your side. The reality is you will struggle, but you will learn to slowly heal and keep moving forward to continue your passion in life.

I've struggled
I'm slowly healing
I'm strong
The Sunset has set
A new journey has begun
The intention is to never forget
Be stronger.
I stand here
Full of love and inspiration
Thank you little baby for being a part of me.

Day 2 The Architectural Tour In Chicago

The second weekend in Chicago was getting to know the famous windy city, so I booked two city tours. The first tour was with  the mercury skyline cruiseline to see the city from a panoramic view.  I have to admit, I was a bit nervous going on board because I get motion sickness and I forgot my medication, but luckily my husband found a cure remedy for me, "liquor!". The alcohol definitely helped calm my nerves down as I go to enjoy the popsicle cocktail while cruising the lake.

Endless Rose

Here is a great fall fashion moment to help you get ready for the new season, but in reality, we know fall is far from the map at least in California. So to keep things cool and light, I decided to create this FallSum inspiration look with a black lace top, rose cover up, jean shorts and blocked heels. Need I say more..this look will have you feeling like it's Fall in the Summer. As a matter fact, I also think it's a great Kaaboo Festival  look. With that said, get inspired to mix up your Summer garments to create chic fall looks.

12 Makeup Tips for a Fabulous Look

For some ladies, wearing a full face of makeup is easy because it's simply what they do every day. For others like myself, I really don't have that much time during the week, but on weekends, I make the extra effort to look and feel fabulous. Remember, if you learn to treat yourself, you learn to feel more beautiful and confident. So here is a quick and simple makeup tutorial that you can use for any occasion.

Step 1. I used the studio makeup on the go warm up eyeshadow palette with the medium and lighter shade to give my eyelids a warm touch.  Make sure to use a fluffy brush to even out color on the crease of your eyes.

Neutrogena Beauty

Every girl aspires to pack light when traveling. Some are successful, while others miss the target. Here on my blog, I share three simple things I missed to pack because I decided to downsize my luggage and focus on packing certain clothes and toiletries. And although, I was proud to have manage not over packing, I realized I had missed three daily essentials like a face moisturizer, acne cream treatment and sunscreen.

After arriving to Chicago the first night and seeing what I was missing, I knew the next day I had to make a trip to a Walgreens or Target to avoid my acne breakout from getting worse. So I was lucky enough to have found a Target in Wrigleyville to buy the following items:  Neutrogena  rapid clear stubborn acne spot , oil free acne moisturizer pink grapefruit and sport face oil free lotion sunscreen. The three items really help nourished my skin during Chicago's hot and humid weather, but it also helped reduce acne redness and swelling making me feel that much more confident to explore the city.

Day 1 in Chicago

A weekend's worth of time will be a perfect dose to explore Chicago. In my personal opinion, to explore Chicago the right way make sure you purchase tickets to a Cubs game. And before you attend the game, arrive a little early to explore the Wrigleyville community and catch brunch and  $1 mimosas at hutch chicago café.
