Gratis Haul: Laura Mercier + More!

Sooo ladies I haven’t filmed a video in a looong time and because I have been getting a lot of requests from my Brazilian girlies I decided to film one in Portuguese. If you are willing to watch it in a different language go for it, but warning: as a good Brazilian gal I talk waaaay too much so be sure to fast forward when I blab non-stop! Hehehe next video will be up next week and it’s in English :)

Phil 2:14 NIV 14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”[a] Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.”


Mom’s Day Flow

Yesssss starting my Mother’s Day weekend having a Friday night to myself to do whatever I want!!! So for starters I got back from work and poured myself a glass of wine, made a HUGE pop corn bowl and topped off with lots of parmesan cheese and garlic tabasco while watching a “bad for the kids” Brazilian soap opera and off to blog a little….feeling good baby! Hahahahaha so now I’m still wearing this makeup look that I absolutely love and feel great wearing it and refuse to let go of it till bed time!!!! Hoping you’ll love it too…

Color Schemer: Tan & Green

What a great combo these two colors make! Yes it’s a bit fall-ish but who cares, it works!! I don’t know about you but along with the 70′s trend-a-ton I’m seeing way more fall colors on trend for spring and summer than ever. For starters think the pantone color of the year is Marsala, which it’s been on my favorites list for quite sometime now…my point is, just because it’s not bright and loud it doesn’t mean you can’t wear ;) got it?! Another good point about the trends is the huge suede invasion in the colors that were pretty in back them such as Tan, Cognac, Caramel etc..

Ok, enough of blah-blah-blahs the look is pretty casual but can be office appropriate with a few changes.

Tan and Green 2 Tan and Green Look


Lucky Brand tan leather jacket (sold out online but HERE’s a leather vest that I also love!) ; Vince silk blouse; Joe’s Jeans military green leggings; Vince Camuto Tan booties; J.Crew necklace and bangels and Stella and Dot bracelets.

As for the makeup look I used Laura Mercier Smooth Creme foundation in Vanilla Beige; Caviar stick in Jungle along with Fresco eye shadow on the crease and lower lash line and my latest love YSL Kiss & Blush in the color 10 on lips and cheeks! Name necklace is Stella and Dot and earrings J.Crew.

Awesome day mes amis and welcome sunshine!!!! #whooohooo

Kiwis, Apples & Limes….Cheers!

The big print on my pants raised different opinions and of course guesses on what kind of fruit that was! I see kiwis but some of my friends saw apples and even limes….some might have thought I was a walking live margarita :D hum I would like that!!! Regardless of what kind of fruit is actually printed on the pants I love them and have worn only once since I bought them last year at Zara Chicago. Soooo, I was excited to wear them again…bring on the sunshine and let’s do this!!!!

#InstaLoveLately (Um)

Since time is short now a days I got the idea from some fellow amazeballs bloggers to do a blog update on my Insta action, yes but a bit more in depth. I hate to overload my friends with lots of pictures of the same look on instagram and I’m know I’m ridiculous for thinking that since the majority of my followers are in fact there to see the #ootd pictures. Call me self conscious I know I am, hopefully one day I won’t give to much of a thought of what people think of me BUT for now I’ll stick with overloading my blog posts with pics and attract my insta love to my blog love!!

Stella and Dot small name necklace; True Religion suede pants; Nine West tan pumps; Louis Vuitton small speedy bag; JCrew long necklace; Saks Fifth Avenue printed long sleeve blouse.

IMG_3239.JPG IMG_3238.JPG IMG_3242.JPGThis look was right after haircut, sunny but chili, don”t be fooled!! Although by now we should be good wearing dresses everyday!! Stella and Dot jewelry; Zara printed dress; JCrew bow flats; Rebecca Minkoff mini mac lilac bag; Tom Ford Whitney sunnies

Since I don’t want to overwhelm you guys I’ll do these looks in one post and another two tomorrow, stay tuned!!

All-White Ft. Indy Indians

This past weekend I was off and REALLY enjoyed my time with little Sophia! Daddy and kiddos on spring break took off to the rockies for a few days skiing (jealous here, yes absolutely!!)  and my little girl who’s not a big fan of the slopes decided to stay here in Indy even though I was working all week long. Saturday however we were treated to an Indian’s game at the Victory Field in downtown Indy. I had never been and was excited to do so, but Sophia…not so much. After bribing my sweet lady with candy and fruit bowls and lots of love she agreed to go and ended up really liking the whole thing!!

Now off to outfit talk shall we?! It was a gorgeous day, blue skies and lots of sunshine. So I went for an all white look…but with a little Leopard meoww!!

Tales of a Haircut

It’s been three days since my big hair chop and here I am loving every minute of it!! Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed my Rapunzel days but the long locks were starting to get on my nerves.

I used to be more of an adventurer with my hair, so much so that I can look at pictures and pin point the time of life by the hair cut and/or color that I was sporting. The urge to chop it off  became stronger when I started seeing all this cute new short spring hair styles, lighter color, beachy waves, and shoulder length….next thing you know I was seating at my one and only hair stylist’s chair and he was cutting some major hair!!!

I had to do a before picture, or pictures :P



And tchan tchan tchan tchan…..





I had an amazing response on this cut and that says a lot about the zeitgeist, fun fun fun if you ask me!
