A Beauty Essential

This is a sponsored campaign written by me on behalf of Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and WeAllGrow Latina. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

As a Latina woman its so important for me to feel fresh and of course confident throughout the day.  Deodorant is a step that I would never want to skip in my daily morning routine.   Especially now with my growing baby bump and sweltering summer heat.  I like to keep an extra in my bag just in case I do forget.  80% of Latinas prioritize putting on deodorant over washing their hair and putting on mascara or lip gloss.  

I've teamed up with Dove to try their Advanced Care Antiperspirant.  Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection, plus the added skin care benefits of its NutriumMoisture formula that leaves your underarms feeling soft and smooth.

After trying it for about a week, I really liked that it went on smoothly, dries quickly, and it didn't sting or itch when I applied it after shaving.  2 in 3 Latinas have experienced underarm irritation, uneven skin tone, dry skin and even red marks.  The added moisture is definitely a bonus on my sensitive skin.  

I've used Dove products for a long time now and they always exceed my expectations.  Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant will be an essential upgrade to my daily beauty routine.

Lets Solve It

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Neutrogena. The opinions and text are all mine.

Happy Monday!
Today I'm sharing how I've been keeping my skin clear even during my pregnancy.  Acne can be a huge problem while pregnant for most women and lets face it ladies, we all want that glowy skin.  Neutrogena has always been one of my favorite skin care brands.  With so many great products, there's something for all skin types.  It's super important to always take care of your skin to feel good inside and out, and Neutrogena always gets it right.  

I start my day using Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser.  It delivers a refreshing blast of 100% naturally derived grapefruit and vitamin C.  It always wakes me right up, in the morning.

For days that I feel like I'm breaking out a little more, I like to use their Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne line.  I use this line more during the summer months since that's when my break outs tend to be worse.  You would think that something that is for acne wouldn't smell that great, but the Rapid Clear Cleanser and mask smell amazing!  

I'm obsessed with the On-the-Spot acne treatment for those tough breakouts.  It has less benzoyl peroxide than other brands yet it provides the same maximum level of effectiveness with 70% less irritation.

My daily struggle is making sure that I take off my makeup before bed.  It's so important for clear and healthy skin.  

At the end of our busy days sometimes we just want to get to bed as quickly as possible, that's why I love the Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes.  They remove all my makeup and dirt making my skin feel cool and refreshed. 

Not sure what will work for your skin?!

Pleated Hollow Shift Dress

Dress: C/O - SHEIN -Blue Boat Neck Pleated Hollow Shift Dress | Sandals: Zara 

Happy Monday dolls!  Why do weekends go by so fast?!  Hope yours was great!

This beautiful dress I received from SHEIN might be blue, but I'm feeling anything but.  My pregnancy in the beginning was pretty hard.  I felt sick all the time!  At one point I asked my doctor, am I going to feel like this all 9mo.?  Everyone assured me that I would feel better after my first trimester, but for me it took a little longer.  I am now 21 weeks and feeling amazing!  I'm definitely in the honeymoon stage and I'm so thankful that I can now enjoy being pregnant, and going through this wonderful life changing experience.  Can't wait to meet my little guy!

Lets talk about this GORGEOUS dress that you can get from SHEIN for less than $15!  They have all the top trends at super affordable prices.  I've been living in dresses during my pregnancy.  They just make me feel cute and comfy.  Every time I try to wear jeans or shorts, I feel like a stuffed sausage.  LOL!  I fell in love with the cut-outs, and its a bonus that it can be styled in a few different ways.  You can wear it as a boat neck, one shoulder, or off the shoulders like I did.  Its a perfect summer dress!  

Yes it's still summer!  Lets not get ahead of ourselves people.  I hate to hear, summer is almost over.  NO IT'S NOT!!!  

Lets enjoy it while it's still here!

Back 2 School with The Mills at Jersey Gardens

Hey dolls!  Hope your all staying cool in this heat!  

Even though the weather is hot, hot and the last thing you want to think about is back to school.  It's almost that time!  Summer sure does fly by.    I had the opportunity to go shopping for back to school with a few of my favorite bloggers at The Mills at Jersey Gardens.

With 200 outlet stores and more stores coming soon, it's the perfect place to find everything you need for back to school.  They have all the trends at super affordable prices.  

Here are some of my favorite trends for back to school!

It makes me laugh to think that I wore these in the 90's and now they are back on trend.  Their perfect for boys or girls, and can be worn with just about anything.

Another trend that Isn't going anywhere is florals for fall!  Here I am rocking this super cute floral dress with cut-outs from Garage Clothing.  
When school starts it can still be warm out so the cut-outs are perfect for those warmer days in the beginning.  Once the weather gets chillier you can just add a denim jacket and booties.   

Denim is always on the top of my nephews back to school list.  When were at The Mills the Levi's outlet is a must.  With most jeans priced at $39.99 it's perfect for moms on a budget.

The Mills at Jersey Gardens is perfect for all of your back to school must haves!

Prints And A Bump!

Bright prints and bumps on this Monday!  

Styling this growing bump has not been easy in this summer heat.  Luckily I can wear easy dresses like this shift dress that I got while I was down the shore.  The print and tassel details are super cute whether your an expecting mommy or not.  I wore it with heels for dinner, but you can easily wear flats for a day look.

Tuesday, July 5, 2016


Hey loves!  Hope you had a great July 4th weekend.

Cropped pants can be a tricky trend to pull of, especially if their wide leg.  I think the easiest way to make them work is balance.  Don't go to wide on the top, keep it sleek or you might end up looking sloppy.  Another tip is wear heels, I'm a flats girl but you need an elevated look.  If you don't want to do a high heel, opt for a stacked one like I did here.  

Keeping the print neutral like I did with these Banana Republic ones is always an easy way to embrace the trend.  I can always rely on Banana to keep me on trend without trying to hard. 

These pants can go from work to cocktail, my best advice is to just have fun with them.
