Snake Attack

22 Apr

Three ways to a polished new you.

1. Black strap heels

2. Sophisticated ponytail

3. Blazer

These 3 tips will whip-up any casual tee’s or jeans.

As of lately, Ive been wearing a lot of black with the occasional pop of color.  Black is classic, safe, polished and forgiving no one can go wrong wearing this color all year long.

We hope your enjoying the subtle updates we made to our blog as we thought it needed a little make-over enjoy. Take a peek!

Rip off those jeans, and put on those shorts!

27 Apr

“Rip off those jeans and put on those shorts” because it is almost summer time, baby! It has finally begun to warm up where I live and I’m really excited to start wearing my shorts! Now when I say shorts, I don’t mean running shorts or knee long jean shorts (LAME.) I mean cute jean shorts! I wouldn’t go for just your plain old blue jean shorties, I would try to be a little more… bold this summer and spring. Go for printed, and colorful, even leather, shorts. May I just add that if your skin is dark or very tan, neon shorts will look amazing on you! Remember that if your shorts are already printed, do not wear a printed top with them unless you really know what you’re doing. Add a cute pair of sandals, flats, or sneakers with your shorts; avoid boots and crocs. If you don’t…

Happy Good Friday Lovelies

29 Mar

I hope most of you are off today and getting ready to start a nice weekend with the family. I saw the most amazing musical last night at the Music Hall down town Detroit, another hidden jewel in the D. The musical is called: The Cross and the Light, it was intense, empowering, and inspiring. The musical walked you through the final hours of Jesus Christ and his Resurrection what a great way to start this Easter weekend.

I am also glad to say that it’s finally starting to look like spring and I am looking forward to wearing spring and summer clothes in silk and chiffon soon. I am loving these flowy pretty pastels featured in InStyle. The accessories, and hair are kept subtle giving it an innocent yet romantic look, what are you loving this spring?

Until next time,
Monica

Colori

19 Mar

Looking for a versatile gift anyone can use? Look no further. While in Italy I saw a fair amount of leather colorful stationery stores, so when I stumbled across this jewel: Colori in San Marino, Ca I was immediately taken back to Italy. The price points are amazing and the quality is on point. You can find leather goods, pens, paper, laptop cases, and one of my favorites the neon cruciani bracelets. Let’s face it in Milan you will never see any woman wearing the same thing, well that’s not the case here. These Cruciani bracelets were a hit all over Italy. I had to jump on this trend, I bought a few for my nieces, okay and one for me. Take a peek.

Oh yes! Thank you, thank you, thank YOU!!! For all my B-day wishes. I really appreciate all your warm comments:) I arrived home really late last night, but I had a wonderful day full of life, food, great company, and love.

I want to thank my sister for making my day. Sister, the post was amazing I couldn’t believe my eyes, I started shaking, heart beating fast then I started to tear up. I was so moved, you definitely struck a chord in me. I love you with all my heart, I’m so happy that I can call you my friend, but most important my sister. We are both beautiful in and out. Thank you!

As always,
Carolina xoxo

A Subtle Hint of Spring

18 Mar

As mentioned before that I was compiling a few Q&A as this marks my personal one year blog post. I decided it was time to reveal a little more about myself because we have built a great circle of let’s see” internet friends” or “blog friends” until we have the pleasure of meeting in person (one day I hope).

Here it goes and hope you enjoy it!

1. What school did you graduate from?
UCSB

2. What is your pet peeve?
I can’t stand a dirty refrigerator

3. What is your favorite color?
Purple

4.Ethinicity
Mexican

5. Age?
32

6. When is your B-Day?
Today!!!!

7. Where did you meet your Husband?
At work, we worked together for about a year, but never crossed paths. I bought a one way ticket to Europe and we met a month later. I looked at him and looked at my ticket and said to myself ” this has been a dream to travel around Europe” off I went. My original plan was to stay two years, but I came back six months later, although we never kept in contact via email or phone, something told me to cut my trip back. I moved back to L.A. and he proposed on my 25th birthday a year later!

Happy St. Paddy’s Day Weekend Beauties

15 Mar

St. Paddy’s Day always sets the mood for spring with its traditional green, and this year you should not have trouble finding something to wear in green as we all know by now that emerald has been proclaimed the color of the year according to pantone fashion. Try color-blocking in different shades to get the most of this vibrant color. Wearing spring colors may not help the weather get warmer, but it will definitely brighten your look, at least that is how I deal with the winter blues.

Hope you all have some great plans for this St. Paddy’s Day weekend. We have a couple of events, and we are hoping to sell some of our green jewelry, as that always adds a nice touch to your outfit if you don’t want to be as dramatic to wear green.

Until next time,
Monica

Happy International Women’s Day

8 Mar

Happy International Women’s Day ladies!

With a flower from us to you!

???????????????????????????????

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I would be getting together with a group of women and putting together Easter baskets for the homeless. Connecting with other women and empowering one another definitely set the mood for celebrating International Women’s Day today! Serving for others while with other women made me realize how grateful I am to be a woman as we naturally have motherly qualities and have the tendency to put others before ourselves by taking the time away from our normal routine and doing little things such as these. The satisfaction from doing for others surpasses anything you do for yourself, and always leaves me with an urgency to want to do more!

So why not embrace our femininity and do something a little special for the women in your lives today, even it just a hug or a phone call to ask how they are doing or get creative and make a DIY card here.

Happy International Women’s Day Precious Jewels!

Until next time,
Monica

Brunch

5 Mar

Cheers to family! With out them we wouldn’t feel complete.

We celebrated the hint of summer weather this past weekend at my favorite place for brunch Mike and Anne’s in South Pasadena. This is my honey and his Mother Nelly, she opted for the tasty fresh Bellini and I got the classic tangy mimosa.

Cheers friends! Thank you for all the lovely comments a big kiss!!
