Fellas I know you lack creativity well at least most of you do, I know it’s kind of harsh but it’s true and when it comes to special occasion and holidays you guys are always in a funk and need a girls help. Well I am here to take that pressure of you and give you a good Valentine’s Day gift idea for your special lady. Yeah flowers and candies are nice but can a girl get a little effort put into our gift from time to time. I love this idea because if you know your girlfriend and pay attention like you should be doing then filling in these senses box/bags should be quite easy.

It’s called a senses box and it consist of 5 boxes or whatever you want to put the items in for example boxes, gift bags, etc. Label each box the following See/ Hear/ Smell/ Touch/Taste. Here are a few gift ideas to put in each box I think will be cute, but remember fellas not all girls like the same things. Good luck and happy lover’s day ladies and gents.

  • See: I would probably buy lingerie a lace bra or sexy underwear maybe your favorite color to add your own personal touch. Another idea maybe print her favorite photo of you two and frame it.
  • Hear: If you two have a favorite movie you like to watch together you can buy her a DVD of it. I know a lot of ladies like Disney movies makes them remember their childhood buy them that movie, every girl has a favorite princess! You can also throw it back old school and buy her a CD of her favorite singer or band, I would take out the paper from the front of the CD and customize the front with something you drew or wrote.
  • Smell: If you’re smart you’ll get lotion for massages, or candles to set the mood.
  • Touch: I am addicted to coffee mugs so I would love to touch a damn coffee mug every morning. If your girl loves makeup get her something she’ll like if your clueless get her a gift card for $20.00 to purchase the makeup makes it easier for you.
  • Taste: This is the easiest because this is where the Valentine’s Day candy isle comes in handy because you can stock up and load the bag or box.

February 14 the day the world splits in two and there is only two opinions either your head over heels in love, or your talking shit about every stupid romantic insta quote or couple picture you see. Come on now we have all been guilty of doing at least one of these in our lifetime. I like Valentine’s Day but since being with my boyfriend, we have switched it up we now celebrate it the day after on Feb 15 when everyone is home and the restaurants are back to normal and don’t have wait times of an hour or more. We started this last year which worked out very well and I really enjoyed it because what’s a calendar to tell me when I have to celebrate love day, not happening.

On to gift Ideas I know most people are either stuck on what the hell to buy their loved ones, and then there are others that pay attention when there boyfriend/girlfriend talk. Unlike those people I like to make my own DIY gifts because I feel like it means more than going to a store and buying something. Last year I bought a valentine’s day box and filled it with confetti, I bought all his favorite candies every size and filled the box with those. I purchased mini bottles of all his favorite liquor for example 2 fireballs, 2 Johnny Walker Black Label, and 2 Jack Daniels Tennessee Fire no ladies and gents he’s not a drunk he’s a man’s man  who can drink whisky (lol). I then cut out 6 heart shaped papers and wrote cute silly drunk quotes on each heart, I then tied the hearts with red string around the bottle. Hopefully this gets your artistic juices flowing and makes you want to make your own gift for your loved one this year. For my single peeps no worries throw on your favorite movie order your favorite take out to avoid the long wait times and have your own day, or you can do the Miami thing and grab all your single friends and go out and forget its Valentine’s Day.

Happy Birthday Mimosa

It’s crazy how times flies and the saying: everything happens “in the blink of an eye” is so true. It’s been 2 years that I’ve been in this blogging world and even though it’s not what I envisioned because I wish I could post more often, it’s still something I take pride in and love to do. I’m always saying that I am going to be more consistent with my posts but unfortunately, we live in a world that can get unpredictable – anyway, shut up Cristina! Onto the fashion, please (lol).

“Summer Summer Summer time” Summer is unbearable in Miami, I feel like this year has been brutal … it feels like you’re a melting popsicle that has been left outside in the hot sun. This anniversary I didn’t fancy it up like I did for my first year anni. I went for a very summery look – a loose denim off-the-shoulder dress. This cute little denim dress is light and breathable for being denim material yet if you’re looking for a tighter piece, this dress also comes in a more fitting style. Another item that has resurfaced after being gone for years are choker necklaces. I remember being little and wearing the black plastic ones everywhere and now they are back in style!

I have been looking for the perfect choker necklace and hadn’t really come across any that I fell in love with. I was in Hobby Lobby and decided to roam around the store and ended up in an isle that had every color suede cord and the light bulb in my head turned on to make my own necklaces. So I bought the same color cord as my shoes and made a choker – it worked out great. Onto my fav part of the outfit: my shoes! These heels are so comfortable because they have a chunky heel and the caged look is fitting on your foot. I hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully, I can continue blogging more outfits to keep doing what I love. Happy 2nd Birthday, Mimosa and Pumps!!!!!!!!!

Happy Labor day weekend peeps! Another holiday we get to spend celebrating in a bikini or wearing a cute outfit while on vacation or hanging out by the beach. For the ladies who don’t want to show as much skin but still want to look cute and enjoy the day celebrating, I usually go for a crochet slip or something flowly and fairly easy to take on and off on top of my bathing suit. I went with this purple ombre dress which is beyond gorgeous! From the colors to the crochet top. So basically your getting the best of both worlds (lol). Not to mention the dress was just $19.99 at Marshalls duhhh, I was season shopping for fall and came across this dress and just had to have it, just look at it, I just couldn’t put it down. For the ladies that like to bare it all in that itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny bikini, please, by all means, do so in this colorful Victoria Secret swimsuit. I’m so in love with this bathing suit not only because is it flattering to all my assets but it’s so comfy and is never riding up and the top is never flying off either, hard to believe I know with these puppies. Make sure to stay safe and drink responsibly!! But most importantly, I like to go by my motto: Have fun and look cute while doing it!!! Happy Labor Day Weekend.

Okay so what can I say, this chick is so ready for her Sundays and Monday nights to go back to normal. Not only am I a fashion blogger but I just so happen to be obsessed with football and especially with the Chicago Bears!!! Since football season is back – what better way to welcome it back other than with fashion (besides the wings and beers lmao!) There is nothing worse than shopping for game day pieces and all you find are jerseys with no shape, team tees in pink, and tees with sparkles. Like come on, get real. Not every girl wears pink, and not every girl wears sparkles … especially for football apparel. I’m extremely picky when it comes to game day gear. I like team tees that I can wear with a variety of options like jeans, shorts, and sneakers. I prefer a jersey but to me, team-logo tees last longer because I can wear them year round even when football season is on hiatus.

On to the sports fashion part of the segment! I’m usually not one of those girls that goes to any sporting events with heels and all dolled up like ever, so not me! That’s more of a “WAGS” style not mine but since this is a blog, I kind of have to show the dressier side to attending a game and the casual side as well. I paired this Chicago Bears v-neck with high wasted shorts because for me to wear jeans or white pants would just not be real of me tbh. I’ve given you two options for your shoes – I know there are women out there that enjoy wearing heels or wedges because they like it so I put on my most comfiest wedges I own to give you an example of how it’ll look. My personal preference is usually sneakers and obviously, has to be team colors so blue converses it is. If it so happens to rain, I usually take a bears jacket for back up so if your team tee gets covered by your jacket – your still repping your team. Happy football season, and bear down!!

This top is from the new summer collection of Peace Love World and it’s to die for. Alina Villasante and the design team did an awesome job with this Ann pullover top, it can be worn so many ways with shorts and wedges or how I paired it above. My favorite part of the shirt has to be the sleeves which feature a textured knit pattern from shoulder to cuff. Also, the two gold zippers add that cool effect – you can also lift the zippers as high as you want or as low as you want. Yes, the shirt is white and arms are a off-white giving it that unique look because everyone knows Peace Love World loves making unique yet fashionable pieces. I paired this top with Free People bf jeans which I live in (lol). I decided to dress up the look and add these fabulous shoes from Justfab.com which are so comfy and affordable!!! For accessories, I went with gold layering necklaces and the double pearl choker because layering a bunch of necklaces is so in and I believe, pulls a look together. Don’t let this heat in Miami prevent you from dressing up, I usually wear this top on days I know I’m going to spend my entire time in an air conditioned building, or even to dinner (inside of course). Hopefully you girls take a risk and buy the shirt because once you buy it, it’s love at first sight!

The 4th of July, a day celebrating the anniversary of National Independence… also known for “Who can pull together the best red, white, and blue outfit”! Pool parties, BBQ’s, beach and boats. I have been obsessed with white-cami dresses and they can be worn so many different ways. I know I say that about every outfit but look how I’ve dressed it down and dressed it up. This is going to be my exact outfit for Saturday, unless I’m in a body of water then outfit change! If you’re doing a casual BBQ with friends and family, this cami dress with the denim vest and converse is beyond perfect. If you’re doing something more dressy and it requires getting dressed, this dress with heels is perfect. Of course, I had to incorporate blue some how so why not stand out with blue Steve Madden heels and if you’re gonna add red – it can be anything! Red necklace or red lipstick … I decided on a red bandana headband with soft wavy curls, very pin-up. If the blue heels are too much, go for nude heels and add blue accessiores like my bracelet and ring, or blue nails. I hope you all enjoy your 4th of July weekend. Be safe, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE – call an Uber or have a designated driver please. Enjoy your fireworks ladies and gents!!!
