OOTD: Hummingbirds

Hola chicas! This weekend was good. I did nothing special or in particular but it was very enjoyable. The weather is warming up but then gets really breezy which makes me get very lazy with my hair and makeup! lol. I know that is not an excuse to look frumpy but I try to throw some things together and keep things tidy.

Here is a look I wore as you can see very casual but dressed up with heels that look like clogs and makeup was very natural just soft pink eyeshadows with a purple eyshadow as a liner. No effort on the hair...AGAIN so please bear with me.

My hair is out of control! Mmm what should I do?

Heels: Charlotte Russe

Owl ring, Crackle polish on nails..need to be redone!

Rose Earrings: Charlotte Russe

Feather earrings: Rainbow
Top Charlotte Russe

Feel much better w/ my hair pulled back and my shades.

Jeans: Macy's

May AZ Fashion meetup: Talking Stick Casino

Hello beauties! Attended this past months fashion meetup and had a blast catching up with old friends, as well as meeting new designers, and bloggers. Phoenix Fashion Week has created a series of monthly meetups where several creative minds come together. They are held at different locations all over the metropolitan area that are very different and not to mention stylish its always inspiring to be around this crowd and always great turn out on every event.

I had a blast admiring all the beautiful designs and art that they had on display and below are just some of the  images I was able to capture hope you can get a glimpse of  the night. Besos mmuah xoxox.

Tarnished Tags had a beautiful setup loved the us wine of bottles as centerpieces. I also won an elephant necklace from their giveaways that night so lucky.

Beautiful jewelry from RGK d'zines

Review: Neutrogena Products

Hello chicas! I was sent this line of products for review purposes from  Neutrogena  and I wanted to test them out continually so that I can provide an accurate review in my experience with this.

Over the spring I have been using same skin care regimen as I was in the fall and winter however it was not working for me as my skin started getting oily and breaking out due to the warm weather and increased sun exposure. Another thing I noticed was that I started breaking out around my face and even neck around the same time I increased my use of SPF products. Needless to say I was not happy and figured had nothing to lose in trying this line.

What it claims: Acne fighting cleansing products that contain maximum strength (2%) salicylic acid, micro bead technology to treat and prevent breakouts. 100% derived grapefruit extract plus vitamin C to help eliminate dirt and oil and rinses without over drying.

What it did

 Used the gel cleanser in the morning and the foaming cleanser in the evening to change things up. The cleansers and the facial scrub smells a lot like grapefruit which I was not a big fan of but It grew on me and the scent was so refreshing in the mornings. The gel cleanser makes your skin feel very clean but once you are done rinsing it can make the skin feel a bit tight and sort of "too clean" however when I followed by my toner i did notice less dirt and bacteria leftover.

  • The cream cleanser feels milder and once you use it after the facial scrub you get a tingly minty feeling on your face at first I thought it was bad but once I changed things up I knew it was right after using the scrub that the cream cleanser gave that stingy feeling to my face. 

  • The facial scrub had bigger micro beads than what I thought that once I was done I would see some lingering in my hair but it really did scrub all the dead skin cells and my skin felt smoother after regular use.

  • The Body clean body wash was my favorite product by far from this line. I normally used regular body wash that smells good but did not do much to the skin on my body. But this not only smelled good but really buffed the top layers of my skin on my back, chest, legs, and arms that I can definitely see a big difference and I am tanner now so I have to admit looks great almost like a natural glow.

  • The first weeks of using the facial products I noticed alot of dryness around my chin and nose area which is normally the oiliest. I compensated by putting on extra moisturizer. After the dryness subsided I noticed little bumps around my cheeks and even around my nose but these little bumps had blackheads that were NOW VISIBLE!! Ok so I continued with the product and it appeared to me that it overall did a slight peeling at first and brought up all the bacteria from pores to the surface which believe it or not I LIKED!  
  • After a month of use I am actually happy with the results my skin is smooth, even, and I now KNOW that the pores are clean and got rid of the junk deep inside without having to do extractions. I am still not done with the bottles and they are still half way so you do get quite a bit of product which is always a plus to get a bang for your buck. One thing though it did dry my skin for the first 2 weeks and I have pretty oily skin so I can definitely see the facial products drying out normal to sensitive skin and perhaps not working for these types. I would only recommend this for oily acneic skin that can handle the high concentration of salicylic acid.

OOTD: Cool Blues

Hola chicas hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. I cannot complain but I relaxed this weekend with family and friends and tried to enjoy the beautiful weather we have been blessed with lately. During the course of the week I complete as many tasks/duties as I can in order to be duty free on my weekends and it has been the best thing I have done. Well worth it for sure.

I also do the same with my hair and style which I try to keep somewhat relaxed and careless but also presentable. Paired a colorblock tissue blouse with some old cuffed shorts and colored cork wedges to give me some height without sacrificing comfort. Hope you girls enjoy this post and as always xoxo.

Sunglasses: Carrera Top: Wet Seal Cuff Shorts: GAP (Circa 2010)
Cork Wedges: Charlotte Russe
Special Guest: Daisy the Maltipoo with her little bow
I can stay out here FOREVER literally!
That's all beauties mmmuah!

Split Complimentary Color OOTN

Hola chicas well I am getting through this busy week but geez my weekend cant get here fast enough. I have been running errands and working on some small projects steadily. I am also trying out new products to see what will work with my spring and summer skin and makeup routine.

Well here is an outfit of the night after I had laid out by the pool ALL DAY! No worries I did use sun block and reapplied however still pretty toasty which I don't mind at all. Used split complementary color scheme for this outfit which was actually not planned to be paired to gethe but I like the way these colors go quite nicely may use this color scheme more often. See what you ladies think.
