Keep that Summer Glow

So now that Summer is over, it is time to start thinking on how to keep that Summer Glow going. Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite beauty products, that I am currently using. To always look bronzed tanned and not ashy. I keep my routine for this very simple and just add a golden bronzer and coral tones blush to my face and cheeks, a little eyeshadow in earthy tones and some body makeup on my arms and legs. To tell you the truth, I was also using them thru out the summer months, as I can’t get sun tanned because I am currently doing lase hair removal sessions (more about that here).

Fall Boots Galore

Fall Boots Galore

I have an uncanny relationship with boots, I think I buy more boots that one can wear in Florida. I love, LOVE how they look. And it is probably the only reason, I would live in a cold weather area (so I could wear fall boots everyday). So at soon it is October and Fall starts. I start thinking on which ones to wear (and also shop). There are some really cool trends for this year. I am enamored with the thigh high boots! I already own a pair of black ones from Steve Madden. But I would love to get an additional set in maybe a jewel tone purple or burgundy color.

Fall with Modcloth

Modcloth FallFinally fall is here!, I have to say this is my favorite season of the year. I love layering things and there is so much you can play with outfits. For this post I collaborated with Modcloth, to show a few of my favorite pieces of the Modcloth Fall collection. Typically, you see that I like traveling around these months to colder locations. And take advantage of the weather and wear pretty outfits with coats and boots etc. I adore how well put together and polished I look, just by throwing on a statement coat over jeans and a sweater.

Looking Refreshed with VIIcode

VII Code Oxygen Eye MaskThis post is in collaboration and sponsored by VIIcode.

You know, I am one of those people. The ones that works long nights and don’t slept enough. And you can see how that lack of rest shows up immediately, and I automatically turn into a raccoon. The skin under my eyes feels dry and turns purple-ish and small fine lines start showing up. To avoid looking like this, I am always trying out new products for my under eyes to make them look refreshed. In the past few weeks, I got to try out the VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask. These are a under the eye pads treatment masks.  You wear them overnight (you can have them on for 8 hours) while you sleep you just rejuvenate. Making it different from other sheet masks, that usually are just on for few minutes.

Summer Kimono

TAOS-Cult-gaia-zara-kimono-jcpenney-swim

I’ve found that this summer, I have been wearing a Summer Kimono non-stop. I wear it as a beach/pool cover up, over a one piece swimsuit, or add some skinny jeans or shorts to this exact same look, to go out to brunch or drinks. I particularly love the floral prints on a dark background, like the one I’m wearing on this post. Having so many colors, it matches with almost everything. And of course, I have been wearing it with the other two summer accessory trends that you will find every blogger wearing: a wooden (or rope) retro style bag with a funky shape (the Ark bag) and silky knot sandals, in this case in a yellow mustardy color.

Très Bien

TAOS-monsterra-leaf-CHRLDR-swimsuit-Pared-Sunnies

You know, I can’t complain about my life these days. Sure I do work a lot, but everything is Très Bien (like this Monstera leaf swimsuit says). This past month, I started a new exercise routine, where I am going to the gym five days a week. I’ve been eating healthy and I have been making it a point to make time to just stop and relax. Having some time to enjoy life with family and friends, or sometimes even by myself.

A Chic Floral Jumpsuit

Floral Jumpsuit

For a change I bought this floral jumpsuit, as a backup for a baby shower I was attending, but I never wore it. I kept seeing it inside my closet, so decided to give it a try. I’m not one of those people that usually wear jumpsuits, the entire idea of wearing a one piece, specially in one print or color, never appealed to me (except if it’s all black).

To be honest, I was feeling a little self conscious wearing it. I have gained a little weight as of late and thought it wouldn’t look right. But as I finished getting ready I was happy with the outcome. I think the flower pattern worked on my side. My idea was to make this jumpsuit look chic and not like it was borrowed from the 70’s. I wore it with a white long jacket draped over my shoulders and with studded pumps.
