Is it still considered Fall after a snow storm?
Probably not, but neither am I really sure and currently to focused on finishing this post to stop writing just to google it. I still consider this time as Fall because the trees still have leaves on them. Albeit, not as much but non the less, they are still hanging on. I find it inspiring to see how many different colors the leaves turn into. Then how the ground is littered with these multicolored shades of yellow, brown and reds with a tiny streak of green. Sometimes I ask myself if these leaves would be a good source of material for creating art pieces. I wonder if someone has already been so bold to ask themselves the same thing and actually make something beautiful out of them. I’ve picked one up just to examine it; to observe the array of colors, to feel the texture and to admire its irregular shape. To bad it’ll be gone soon before I take the time to make something beautiful out of them myself.
Just like seeing how pretty the burgundy hue of the leaves were, I was equally pleased to see how nicely this thrifted Topshop burgundy wool coat fit on me. The arms were not to long or tight around the armhole. The material was in good condition, minus the signature thrift shop scent. The lining was in decent condition, shiny and smooth and the pockets had no holes. It had a detachable black faux fur Peter Pan collar that looked like it had seen better days. I was impressed. The pros were greater then the cons and that made me happy, so I took it home.
I wish I could say that everyday in New York city feels gloriously warm, truly, but that is simply not the reality and I’d be completely lying to you. This is me, almost everyday, wrapped up in a heavy duty puffer coat that bundles me up like a sleeping bag. This one in particular is from Brooks Brothers, its a knee length dark navy blue puffer coat with a cute black feather trim to keep my face warm lol.
Lets raise a glass to effortless, simple and functional outfits cause life is stressful enough!
Cheers to not being famous enough to draw out paparazzi who want to snap pictures of your every step, unapologetically and ruthlessly, whether you look cute or not!
Thank goodness sake for this amazing lightweight Mountain Buggy stroller and for museums that house ruins and classic paintings from ancient times!
Here is a little recap of my outfit and a vlog of the days events!
This post is a bit of a throwback because it was on January 16th of 2018! This day was extra special because it was my daughters official first birthday. We decided to celebrate it by taking her to the museum and have a little mini photoshoot but she was not having it because she was asleep the whole time! Thank God #amen lol regardless my husband and I really enjoyed it because there was a lot of things, a lot of history to experience once we were inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan. Its so big and beautiful, every corner is instagram worthy and it really takes your breath away once you step inside. I really don’t think there is another museum like it (or maybe one that I’ve yet to visit). So this is a throwback Thursday kind of post, I had completely forgotten about this day, which was buried under all the other pictures of random life shenanigans on my iPhone.
I hope you enjoy and maybe even brings a little smile to your face, like if you like and follow for more content. Let me know what you think of the video or the outfit below in the comments, until next time!
I like linen, especially during the summer but not all linen looks cute and its hard to find classic versatile stable pieces. I got super lucky in one of my thrift store adventure hunts by finding this amazingly over sized linen button down blouse. I’ve never been one to wear many things over sized but being that I’ve been struggling to lose the extra pregnancy weight, over sized tops really help me feel confident yet comfortable. It gets me sad, but I know I’m making strides and taking action on a daily bases to lose the weight that I have! I know that by this time next year, I won’t be in the same place in my weight lose journey and that gets me excited to stay motivated!
Here’s a very casual outfit of the day featuring my recent thrift store treasure.
Details about the outfit below.
linen shirt; henna G, leggings; zara, sneakers; forever 21, sunglasses; ray ban
This was a super casual floral romper for a casual stroll around the park in this crazy humid New York City heat. The romper has a trendy off-the-shoulder look with super cute floral motifs of red, pink, blue flowers and leaves that almost look drawn on. It was really comfortable and cute. I’ve been feeling a little anxious lately, mostly because I’ve been researching the classes I’ll need to take to go back to school for a bachelors degree. I’m really excited about the major I’m planning to go into but its going to be really tough for me because its mostly in math. I’ve spend so much time researching what would be the best and most flexible degree for me and my little family for a while now. It was really challenging because there were so many questions that I had about demand, pay scale, etc and nothing that could be answered by simply googling it.
Personally, I wish public high schools would incorporate and encourage other topics, something that’s more relevant long term, to build interest within the kids which would grow into a life skill. Instead of spending so much time on memorizing (what feels like now) useless facts or rules. I completely understand that education is important, but understanding whats valuable and what isn’t is just as important. Its just unfortunate that kids don’t get that time to really explore and question the things around them because of all the time spend on schoolwork or craming for tests… Anyways, I’m just ranting on my own personal experiences.
Perhaps you’ve had a different experience or have a different opinion about the education system, if so lets chat in the comments below! Also, what do you think about this outfit?
Thanks for checking out my blog and this post!

This is a casual Friday street wear workout sporty outfit. The best part about it are my favorite throwback ombre hot pink and purple Nike sneakers because their so eye catching and comfortable. It instantly adds life to any occasion and emotionally, it brightens my mood!
Since my body is still bouncing back from my pregnancy, I’ve been wearing a lot of black on a day to day basis which sucks. Wearing black is very slimming but it makes you feel hotter and with the NYC humidity, your like a walking sauna which is not cool. But I won’t get tired of wearing my Straight Outta Compton t-shirt because its perfectly oversized to wear as a mini dress or tie it in the center to add more shape. I thought it be relevant to wear because of the release of the Tupac movie All Eyez On Me, which I can’t wait to go see this weekend! Even though its kind of a throwback fad to the summer of 2015 when these shirts were everywhere with the release of the movie.
I hope you’ve enjoying this dose of minimal and sporty inspo #ootd. Let me know in the comments below if you like this outfit/or the sneakers. Also, which movies have you seen in theaters lately? Are you excited to see the Tupac movie? Was he your favorite 90’s artist?
Like always, have a blessed day!

If you don’t know Tumblr, think of it as the teenager to Pinterests mom. Recently, I’ve been spending time on the site & building an inspirational body of images on it. The amount of themes, photographs and designs available on it will have your imagination on fire!
Tumblr pink is a concept I read about in an article posted on fashionista.com (link at the bottom of this post). It highlighted the evolution of this subdued, pastel pink hue that has transformed in our culture from its girly and ultra feminine references to it becoming ultra modern and edgy. It makes sexy appear tough, blurs the lines of masculinity and femininity because each gender can wear the color proudly. The dynamics of this color began when Pantone announced Rose Quartz and Serenity as colors of the year for 2016. This color has been used on many ads, in music videos like Hotline Bling by Drake, in tech like the rose gold iPhone and laptop. It’s encompassed a variety of industries for multiple purposes and it draws consumers when ever present. It’s the “hey, look at me” color of the moment and it seems like it’s just building up stem.
Heres my #ootd that coincides perfectly with the new blossoms popping up everywhere throughout the city, Pared with a badass leather jacket that has a minimalistic style, draws the attention to the long pink cardigan by Boohoo.com and emphasized by the Joe Fresh oversized scarf. Added with my Sketchers sneakers, my daughter and I are ready to enjoy the cool days ahead!
I hope this look inspires you and let me know what you think of this #ootd. Have a blessed day y’all!
Mama’s got her body back, yass! lol
Well.. maybe not for a few more months. I’m two months postpartum and my body has been slowly getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I’m really excited about the progress but my real challenge is to flatten out my stomach. I’m currently editing a birth story video to post up on my Youtube channel with all kinds of details about what had happened 😱. I’m excited to share it and I’ll have the link to that video in my next blog post.
Before my pregnancy, that was one area of my body that I really struggled to maintain and to tone. My diet was horrible but since I would spend a significant amount of time in the gym, I was content with just maintaining my weight. A lot of my clothes that I had before, either don’t fit me or I just don’t feel comfortable in anymore because of my c-section pooch. I really wanted to get some inexpensive pieces for my closet that (1) were not going to break the bank (2) I could comfortably lounge in the house in (3) and confidently run errands in. I know, I kick myself in the ass sometimes cause I would talk myself out of buying something because of all my requests.
I decided to spend my time and money on Boohoo.com, I had heard a lot of positive reviews through friends and some Youtubers. I was skeptical at first but then as I skimmed through the website, I had fallen in love with the items and the prices especially! But I was disappointed at the quality when I finally got my shipment. Some of the leggings were XTRMLY thin and see through and others just didn’t flatter my new body. The fabrics for all my items are soft and stretchy and my favorite item is this black jumpsuit. Simple yet versatile and is under the “little black dress” category which means it can be mixed and matched with different accessories depending your mood.
Thank you for reading along and checking out my blog. Let me know in the comments below what you thought about this look and what you think of boohoo. Be in the lookout for my next upcoming post for the link to my Youtube video link. Thanks again and have a blessed day!
These boots were a major throwback for me…
#fbf lol circa 2007’ish (?)
These boots were my first major purchase as a teen. I felt so grown and awesome because, at the time, I hadn’t seen many people wearing Moccasins.
At one point, I got really tired of these knee high boots and tucked them nicely away for a long time in a corner of my closet. Lately, the weather has been warm for this holiday season, when it should be well below the 50’s F. Sneakers leave me too exposed to the cool air but winter boots are heavy and hot. I decided to revive these boots since they’re extremely comfortable yet warm, albeit, don’t look it. The fringe is a classic touch of charm without looking over produced. The Forever 21 mini knit dress has a geometric pattern that gives like an overall, fifty shades of blue, bohemian look. I loved how round and perky my belly looked through this dress. Thank goodness for knit & spandex cause maternity clothes looks horrible on my petite body.
Thank you for checking out my blog and checking out this post, let me know what your thoughts are about this #ootd on the comments below! ✌️
The best part about Halloween is the drama that bubbles up through the creativity and energy of those ready to recreate something that was once memorable and sometimes a bit ironic. the drama that you anticipate. October has a bit of bewilderment, something that the rest of the 11 months lack.
Well seeing how I’m only going to have this pregnant-halloween experience once or atleast not for a long time after (unless 10 years down the line fate interferes lol you know what I mean ladies) I wanted to make the best of it by dress up! I made it myself or rather customized it myself. I already had a bunch of school items laying around and needed a clever reason to put them into good use. I paired a solid black, steve-jobey, Zara turtle neck knit shirt with some Walmart pregnancy leggings (that are serious lifesavers!). Then drew out the shape of the rib cage and the skeletal fetus. Added some fabric glue and some white thread, then I was done. An awesome, inexpensive Halloween costume inspired by Pinterest! lol
La mejor parte de Halloween es el drama que se burbujea a través de la creatividad y la energía de aquellos dispuestos a recrear algo que fue una vez memorable ya veces un poco irónico. El drama que usted anticipa. Octubre tiene un poco de desconcierto, algo que el resto de los 11 meses carecen.
Bueno, viendo cómo voy a tener esta experiencia embarazada de halloween una vez o por lo menos no por mucho tiempo después (a menos que 10 años por la línea de destino interfiere lol usted sabe lo que quiero decir señoras) Quería hacer lo mejor de él por ¡vestirse! Lo hice yo mismo o más bien lo personalizé yo mismo. Yo ya tenía un montón de artículos de la escuela por ahí y necesitaba una razón inteligente para ponerlos en buen uso. Me emparejé un sólido negro, steve-jobey, Zara tortuga cuello camisa de punto con algunas polainas de embarazo de Walmart (que son lifesavers graves!). Luego dibujó la forma de la caja torácica y el feto esquelético. Agregado un pegamento de tela y un poco de hilo blanco, entonces yo estaba hecho. ¡Un traje impresionante, barato de Halloween inspirado por Pinterest! lo
Where do I even start…I’m huge & I’m only getting bigger by the weeks. I found out about my pregnancy early in May, at the time it still seemed a bit unreal because I wasn’t showing and everything still fit perfectly. Lately, though, its been more of a challenge to keep up with some basic things that I took for granted pre pregnancy.
&& if your curious about the gender, don’t worry, it’s an alien 👽
😅 lol jp. I’m having a baby girl.
I was recommended by other moms that I should have a sense of humor about this journey, a la Ali Wong: Baby Cobra.
I’ve filtered plenty of things out of my closet because of the fast and growing changes of my body #nobodygoals #miniball. I’ve just been really thankful for all the stretchy, knit and spandex’y fabrics that I’ve passionately collected throughout the years. I took advantage of a beautiful sunny day by wearing something off the shoulder, like this top & these awesome Ray Ban aviator sunglasses that pumped some serious mojo to the rest of the look. Coupling the outfit with my favorite bag with faux gold detail for added touches cohesiveness, I was ready to set sail (figuratively).
Thankfully, Fall just started in NYC & I’m looking forward to getting some key outerwear pieces and some killer accessories to add definition to my growing body, baby and what ever life challenges ahead (literally, I’m talking about 30 degree mornings with very little heat to welcome you out of bed).
