I mean, can we talk about this color?

its pretty but is it brown or like a medium tone grey?

I purchased this nail polish a few days before my wedding because of how sophisticated the hue looked. I wanted to make sure my nails looked polished as we exchanged our vows and slide the marriage bands onto our fingers.

I hope you enjoy the little nail polish inspiration for the day!

Its been one hectic start of the new year because this January is extra special. The reason for that is because it is my daughters first birthday, she’s officially turning one years old and it marks a huge milestone for our little family. We have gone through plenty of sleepless nights, some not even due to our daughters needs but from us worrying about our personal finances, lack of job opportunities and that dreaded feeling of helplessness brought by a loss of identity. Although, caring for our baby girl wasn’t as tough as we had in mind, in fact, is was quiet manageable. Those moments where we had to put her to sleep (and keep her asleep) were the most relaxing because it allowed a joyful momentary sense of relief from our worries and concerns. What has truly been tough, is finding a way to get over the uncertainty of our finances. My fiance and I went through some time where we continually questioned who we are because we were stuck in a runt! what should we be doing to change the coarse of our future and what are we missing that we just can’t fully grasp?

It was one long and difficult 2017 but what was consistent was our faith. Our faith become like our backbone whenever we felt like we were stuck between a rock and a hard place.

I am beyond grateful that tomorrow will honestly be the start of a new beginning for us because my fiancé will start his new full time job as an apprentice, but he has high hopes that he could move up within the company. He mentioned to me that he made a great impression with his (future) employers and they all unanimously agreed they wanted to hire him. When I heard the details, I wasn’t surprised, his a great guy and with natural genuine charisma. On the other hand, although I’ve held a part time flexible job throughout the year, it doesn’t pay well. Going forward, I’m going to be applying to different jobs and my only condition is to work from home. I often say that I’ll hire a babysitter, but I’m very weary of someone else watching my daughter, even with my own family.

Anyways, heres a recap of photographs and an awesome video I edited together of our daughters first birthday celebration. I hope you enjoy and let me know in the comments below what you think about the video and my semi botched edited lol. Until next time lovelies!

ps. in the next couple of months I’m planning to change the appearances of my blog so stayed tuned for that!

Pantone: Fall 2016 Fashion Report!

It’s that time of year again where all the top fashion editors, influencers and elite are preparing themselves for the crazy schedule that’ll be Fashion week. The month long journey of the Spring 2017 collections beginning in New York City and traveling through the major fashion capitals of the world like; London, Paris & Milan.

Albeit the media will be all over what the runway shows will display for next season, currently I’m more interesting in what colors and hues and shades will emerge this Fall season until next year. Almost all summer I was wearing blacks or greys and now that the fall is here, undoubtedly, black will be one of the dominant colors throughout many new yorker’s closets and theres no better time then the change of a season.

Pantone, the authorities on color that provide color systems and leading technology for accurate communication of colors for a wide range of industries including the fashion, has available a list of colors that’ll be dominant throughout Fall 2016.

Below are the list of colors:

November’s just flying by and now its Thanksgiving week. I can recall a time when I was in middle school and believing how slow time went and now I just gasp at how fast I’m going through my calender’s. I was talking to a friend earlier this week about the major time difference between LA and New York City.

My boyfriend and I spend little over a week in the West Coast, going to LA, Catalina Island, Baja California and Mexico (we were on a cruise 😉 lol) But that was my first experience in the West Coast and OH MAN did it feel like a month instead of a week. It just felt a lot longer than what we were used too and I kind of liked the change.

Shirt: bought in a mall during a trip to my home country, El Salvador

Shift Dress: Flea market in NYC

Sheer Hoes: H&M

Heels: Payless 2010
