Makeup to Wakeup by Pixi

 Hola Chicas! I hope you are off to a great start, as some of you know about two weeks ago I took a trip to Los Angeles for an event with Google space. I drove from San Diego to Venice because I was on a mission to really get to know what my next step should be with my personal business goals. With that said, before arriving to the event, I had the opportunity to explore Venice and I came across the pixi beauty store and I didn't think twice about skipping it.

So, I crossed the street and stepped right into the front door to explore the all white retail space. I honestly wanted to film the whole experience, but was limited on time, so I took advantage to ask two things: 1.) Does Pixi have great concealer coverage for under eyes? 2.) Does the store offer a freshen up mini makeover? Answer to both questions, Yes!

Modern Map Art

Have you giving much thought about an atlas, vintage or street map before? or Perhaps you thought about having map for your house as decoration.  If so, you're in luck because I cam across this amazing artist who created modern map art in 2016 and since then she has developed some creative grids of the city life.

Her unique art work unveils the city's chaotic life, but at the same time it's modern and elegant. Take a look the beautiful 8 x 10 San Diego print.  After receiving the map print by mail, I realized I needed to stop Hobby Lobby to find a perfect frame. After viewing a selection of different color frames, I realized the perfect one would be a simple black and white, so the print can stand out in every angle.

Reality

The thing about reality is to keep things as real as possible. There are going to be good and bad days, but regardless let your emotions out and keep striving forward. These past few days, I wanted to get back on track with blogging, but San Diego's weather had me fooled, so instead I did a small photo shoot inside my apartment.

Since, I was lounging around my apartment, I decided to sport a dress and go on about my day. I mean, why the hell not...right? I shouldn't wait for plans to come up to dress up, I guess that just me. So, I reached into my closet for my Vertical Striped Off The Shoulder Maxi Dress slipped it on and made myself a peanut butter jelly sandwich before playing the congas.

How to Clean and Organize Your Makeup Drawer


To be quite honest, I only have one make up drawer (which by the way I am super proud of), but I also realized it wasn't the cleanest drawer in my bathroom. I recently started noticing how my drawer was becoming a small mountain of cosmetics buried on top of one another. So,I immediately decided to do some Spring cleaning to sort, organize and throw some items out.

This is what my drawer looked like when I got started. I will admit that it was definitely looking
cluttered from every angle. Yikes!

Red Fringed Skirt

It isn't all about red carpet experiences to wear red garments like a skirt. So, chicas, if you have red skirt neatly hanged in your closet take it out and wear it. As you know, skirts come in all shapes and colors like pencil skirts, fringed skirts or short skirts. For those willing to live on the wild side sport a cute red fringed skirt and walk the line.

Remember, the value of a skirt is  to take you from day to night. For example, my fringed red skirt can be worn with sandals or sneakers during day time, but if you want a formal evening look swap the shoes for some heels. And get ready to revive the night with a little Salsa dancing.

Deckman's at Mogor

Traveling and exploring life beyond the border has always been a simple thought, but to be quite honest after exploring little hidden gems here and there in Mexico; I've not created a list of places I like to visit. For now, I will share my most recent visit Deckman's at Mogor winery in Valle
de Guadalupe, B.C. Mexico. Our good friends had mention this winery prior, so they went ahead and made a reservation. When we found the location, I fell in love and gasped a little. I felt at peace because it was the start of my Self-Care time to distress, relax and enjoy the company, food and environment.

Deckman's winery is located in Mexico's beautiful country life and it has a spectacular 360 degree view all around. The outdoor sitting makes it perfect to enjoy the wine, cheese and food. If you are traveling with partner or friend; I recommend taking your time because you won't feel rushed to go anywhere. So, with that said, get comfortable and start ordering food. In a short brief summary, here is what our group ordered. The first order was the cheese board which was then followed by appetizers. All of sudden we found ourselves ordering Mezcal shots because the waiter made us curious about the famous worm salt. Which by the way is the worm that is found in most bottles of Mezcal, since he claimed everyone was "fighting" to taste the worm. So they decided  to decompose the little thing and mix it with salt (I don't know if these makes sense, but it was tasty!).

For dinner, I recommend ordering the ribeye steak for two because it's served with pureed potatoes along with mushroom and grilled onion. Plus, you get a side dish of delicious grilled vegetables.
However, my husband just told me the Menu changes weekly, but if you see it on the menu order it! You will not be disappointed and make sure you finish things strong with a dessert or two...

Remember to enjoy every moment and in between meals take the time to walk around. Most of all enjoy the Sunset because once you go back home you will be day dreaming about the experience.
