Go ahead and send me a message if you want to talk, have a question, or any product review request. I promise once I come back from my Vacation I will be posting more often.

A little help from my followers!

Hey guys so I was hoping you could help me choose an outfit for me to leave next week. I am leaving next Friday morning to the Dominican Republic to be with my hunny. Its a 3 hour 45 min. flight but its always super cold on the plane. My Hubby told me its like really hot over there right now but I want to look nice for him as well as cool. I love animal print so I fell in love with the maxi dress. Both these looks I created are exact replicas of the outfits I actually have. Not the same brands but its just so you would get an idea. Please help me choose! Look number one or look number two?

So there you have it guys. These are the outfits that I choose. One more flirty and girly, the other laid back and chill. Let me know what you guys think and any other suggestions you might have. Well guys take care. ADIOS!

You Will Be Missed...

Hey guys so I wanted to write a post on some product reviews but to be honest with you guys I don't feel very up to it.

Tonight I will be going to the funeral of a friend/neighbor. He was only 24 years old, left behind a wife and a mother who adored him to pieces. He was the youngest of three and his brother and sister as well as their mom in still unconsolable. We still can't believe it.

I don't want to get personal, to repect his familys privacy. But I will say please guys, when you get in a car PLEASE please buckle your seatbelt. It really does save lives. 

The pain I have witnessed his family go through these past couple of days is something I would not wish on my worst enemy. The phone call, going to verify the body.... I don't want to go on with this depressing post but I will say that he will be missed. He was a great guy, a sweetheart. My deepest condolences to him and his family. I leave you guys with a song, in Spanish about losing someone you love.

I am loving this nail polish

China Glaze nail polish in Innocence. I have this on my finger and toe nails. It is a light milky pink. It took 3 coats with a base and top coat. I am tired of all the bright colors and I am loving just having the sophisticated look. I purchased it at Sally Beauty Supply for 6 bucks. Definitely going to purchase back ups!

I apologize for the crappy pics on my Blackberry. Check this color out guys!


Hey guys. So today I went out to the mall to get some items that I need for my trip. I am leaving next Friday to go spend a month with my hunny in Dominican Republic. I cant wait to go! So I really only needed some flip flops, and I love Old Navy flip flops. They only had Pink, orange, green , yellow and white ones left, so I choose a orange one and a yellow one. The orange is super bright and the yellow is more toned down. I paid $2.00 for each one that I got. Of course I am always looking for for anything that says clearance so of course I gravitated to the clearance racks. I scored two new jeans, one for $3.97 and the other for $4.97! All together now, YAHOO!! lols

 Next I found 2 sweaters for the winter time. A purplish-pink (is that a word??)  and a over sized yellow one that will be perfect with leggings and uggs. The purple one is 0.47 cents and the yellow one was $1.47. More please! =]


Then I got a regular tank, white and olive green stripes for $1.97.

 Then I got a minty green tank top. I paid $3.97. I love how this color looks on me with my tan.

I scored this top for $4 bucks. I will probably wear it to go meet my father-in-law.

I got two V-neck shirts for my hunny since his birthday is tomorrow. A white one and a pale yellow one. I will probably be getting him some new sneakers to go with the shirts.

And finally I got brown thong sandals to wear with my dress when I leave to Dominican Republic.

Here is a photo of the dress. I will be wearing it with a black cardigan and the flip flops. It is a maxi dress. I might belt it, not sure yet. I love the print (dress from a boutique around my way. animal print? yes please!).

So the final price on my receipt was $39.78. I love getting a lot of things for cheap! Check out your Old Navy's clearance rack. You never know what you might find. Okay guys until my next post, ADIOSITO!

Product I'm Lovin - Primer

Hey everyone! So I was checking back on the hauls I have posted on my blog and I decided that I wanted to give you guys some updates on the products I had purchased and how I felt after using them for a while.  So I wanted to try out an inexpensive face primer because I love deals, and I just think why pay full price when it's the first time I am trying something.

Which Brings me to this :

So this is the Avon Magix Face Perfecter SPF 20. The consistency of this is thick and creamy and initially I didn't think I  liked it very much. Now that its super hot (average 95 degrees and up!) I have been using this whenever I do my makeup which is 4 out of 7 days a week (sometimes its just toooo hot for makeup!) and this really helps my makeup stay in place. I love that it has no scent to it and as soon as I apply it I can feel how it makes my face matte. It hasn't broken my face out either. And the best part?? It's only $10.00 bucks! And I have been using it for the past 2 months and I have a ton left. I use half a dime size amount for my whole face and I am good. I even apply it on my lids and it helps keep my eyeshadow in place as well. On top of that I will apply my Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation if I am going out or just my Everyday Minerals foundation if its just for work. I really recommend this product and I want to purchase like 5 more since Avon has the tendency to discontinue items that I really like. So I give this product an A+.

Blogs By Latinas

Hey guys. So I was surfing the web as usual looking for new blogs to follow since I really enjoy reading blogs and just reading in general. I came across the page "". A while back I had submitted my Blog to see if it would be posted on the page. I wanted to become part of it because I think the concept is great. I guess the creator of the site was searching for any blogs written by other Latinas and her search didn't produce many results. So she created Blogs by Latina's so we could all have a place to discover new Blogs written just by Latina's!

Okay back on topic, so I was super surprised when the page came up and my blog page was on there! I am excited, I didn't think my Blog would be accepted since its so new. I can't wait to discover new Blogs by other Latina's and to make new friends!

I was reading another Blog that talked about having Internet friends and how this day in age its not as weird as people might have thought it was. I have met a lot of people online that have become wonderful friends to me. Who have been there for me when I needed someone to lean on, so I am all for making friends online. My family did think it was a little weird at first and they do ask me, wait is this a Internet friend or regular one. It did irritate me at first but hey, I figured it shouldn't bother me that much.

So I hope any fellow Latina's that are reading my Blog go ahead and submit your blog to this website. Like I said it is a great way to meet discover new Blogs and also for others to discover your own Blog. The site is Blogsbylatinas . On it you can search for Blogs by State and Category. I look forward to checking out food Blogs and learning new recipes as well as Beauty Blogs.

On another note, my sister gave birth on Wensday and yesterday I met my new nephew. His name is Emanuel and he is just the tiniest, cutest, baby ever!! I was so scared since he is so little I was afraid to carry him. :(
But I will be picking up my sister from the hospital in a few so I will get to carry him and stare at him and his cuteness even more lol. Well guys I hope you have a wonderful day today. Take care and ADIOS! <3

I missed Blogger!!!

Hi guys I am back!!!!! Ugh I have been dying to post but was going through some problems and really didn't feel up to anything. But I promise you guys I really am back. I have missed reading my favorite blogs as well as interacting with you guys through comments. So where do I begin. In the past weeks I helped plan my sisters baby shower, surprise party for a friend, doubled my workload at work, decided to move the wedding to a later date (My family won't be able to be there now and I can't do it without em!), redoing my bedroom, planning my trip to be with my fiance in the Dominican Republic (where he lives) for almost a month, GOT MY DRIVERS LICENSE! YAY!!, finally got my first Blackberry, ahhhh *catches breath*. And that's about the half of it.

I haven't been shopping as much but I have gotten a few things here and there that I am excited to post about soon. I finally found the 8 pan Wet and Wild eyeshadow palettes at Walgreen's and I am in love!!! <3  I definitely want to create some looks with them. I purchased 2, Petal Pusher which had purple/pink shades. I also picked up Comfort Zone which I am pretty sure will become my fave. It has neutral colors and ac few green colors. I haven't taken photos yet but I PROMISE I will be uploading soon. Okay guys so I will leave you with a few pix of what I have been up to, and I will be preparing posts for you guys later on tonight.

And to my new followers, Hello and Welcome to my blog. Thank you for following and commenting.   <3

Okay guys so I have been sooo MIA lately ughhh.... I have been working so much and since I work so early and I am on the computer all day at work when I get home I just want to sleep!! =[

So I decided that I wont be doing the "Where I'd Go" posts on a set day. I will probably still do it once a week but not on a set day.

I am getting ready to leave to the Dominican Republic to be with my boo boo at the end of next month. I'm glad I have been getting so many hours at work because they will come in handy. I haven't been purchasing anything lately but I do have my eye on a couple of things....

Now I thought I might share my current shopping lists ideas. Everything I am getting is centered around my trip. I have alot of clothes at the boo boos house and here as well but I want to get a couple of fresh outfits anyways.

Forever 21 +

All I can add is some 2 for $5 flip flops from old navy and I am set! Well guys, I apologize for the lack of posts, I really want to post more often but it seems like there aren't enough hours in the day! My sisters baby shower is next weekend and now we are running around getting everything for that done as well... ughhh I sooo need my vacation! Alright guys until my next posts, ADIOS!!

Where Would I Go Wensdays...

Hey guys! Hope everyone is keeping cool in this 90+ degree weather (Jersey at least!) I have hardly been wearing any makeup, except for some bronzer, liner, and my Wet n Wild Lipsticks which I pat on my lips just to stain them and pair that with clear gloss. So I was trying to think of what kind of posts I would want to do, kind of on a weekly basis. I came up with Where Would I Go Wensdays... A bit corny but I love looking at different places and making mental notes for where I would go. So I am Dominican, and I just loveeee tropical places. I thought I would start out with a place in the Dominican Republic, so here it is.....

Pedernales, Republica Dominicana....

Bahia De Las Aguilas

Ughhh so this photo just takes my breath away, the beautiful color of the water, the sand.... I could just imagine it! So Bahia De Las Aguilas (Bay of the Eagles) is one of the most difficult beaches to get to. It is located basically in the middle of nowhere! You can there by boat or by 4x4 vehicle but it is a serious incline so if not experienced, better to take the boat! It will definitely be a long drive. I am always bugging the BF about wanting to take a week long road trip and just going somewhere we have both never been, this is definitely my top choice!. Everyone tells me it is worth the hassle getting there. It is actually part of a National Park so there is no development there. And you can actually go into the caves there and see carvings made by the Tainos that lived there years and years ago!

Since there is no development there, we would have to stay in Barahona but its not to far from this Paradise.... Here is a Map of the Dominican Republic. I am from the North West, San Fransisco De Macoris... Pedernales is allllll the way down, South East.

( F.Y.I. On the Bottom Right Corner I circled Higuey/Bavaro, which is where my Fiance lives!)

Okay guys, so I hope you liked my post. Let me know if you guys like these kind of posts??? There are soooo many places I want to go in the world. I think for the first couple of weeks I will show you guys places in the D.R. since I love being there so much! Take care, ADIOS!

MARK Glowdacious Illuminating Powder

Glow without trying! (their description lol)

Hey guys. So in the summer I am known to go bronzer/highlighter crazy and at this moment its what I've been loving. So I recently purchased this one from MARK and I have to say I am in LOVE! It is shimmery but not glittery and I use it on my lids, lips with a clear gloss on top and all over the face for that GLOW. Its $12.00 and I have got to say well worth the money. I am dying to tan because I love bronzer/highlighter with tan skin. I know its not good to tan but... sorry?


Okay so my crappy pics don't do it justice. It really is a pretty highlighter and they have 3 different choices from lighter for light skin to this one which is the darkest and most shimmery I think. Its called Amped Up. I really like a lot of Mark Products. I am thinking of becoming a Rep. but I'm not sure yet.....

Anybody else try this? Thoughts?

Walgreens Haul / Randomness!

Hey guys. So I was at Walgreen the other day. My sister wanted to get out the house (she's having a baby at the end of the month!! =] ). I ended up purchasing some things I found on sale. I finally got my hands on some Wet n Wild Lipsticks as well as one by Black Radiance. The Wet n Wild ones I got were, a bright pink one and a bright red one

$ 1.64 for Wet n Wild each
$ 2.00 for Black Radiance

Pink One : 905d  Loveee this color. Super bright, it reminds me of the bright inside of a Watermelon ha ha. I can't wait to get a tan and pair this with some bronze shimmer on the face and wild curly hair! A bit of a Matte finish. I wish I new the name of this particular line of lipstick, sorry guys =(

Red One : 910 D  Again, I love it!! This will be perfect for those Summer nights when I go out dancing or even my honey! Cant wait! Again Matte finish.

Black Radiance lipstick in 5004 :  Fuchsia pink. This one is a bit sheer, but build able to the point were its super bright. Has a sheen to it.

From L to R : Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Red Delicious, Wet N Wild Pink, Wet N Wild Red
Bottom : Black Radiance Lipstick

I saw the display for the Sally Hansen Crackle but at $8.00 a pop I decided I probably wouldn't use it anyways since the only colors I really paint on my nails in the summer is pink. (All shades!) I purchased OASIS from Sinful Colors and I have to say I am in love!! Its a bright pink, with a pearlecent sheen to it. I gave myself a Mani-Pedi today and I used this polish. Its a hot pink and is a bit sheer at first but nothing that 3 coats can't fix! This polish isn't super thick in consistency so I was able do this with no problem!

Sinful Colors in OASIS $1.99 (I have a huge S.C. collection!)

Excuse my messy application.

Last I really wanted to try something other than makeup, since every time I purchase something lately, its been makeup. So I got a face cream. Its by a company called Andes Nature and it was only $5 bucks. Its an Antioxidant cream and it claims to be a firming. It is made with Cabernet which I think is Grape. Now I haven't used it long enough to know about the firming, but I love the scent, it smells like grape but not super strong or fruity. And its the type of cream that is cold so in the warmer months its refreshing. It hasn't broken me out or made me oily which I love!!! Best $5 bucks ever!

 Blended out, its super moisturizing

One of my sisters clients knows I love the Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss so she was nice enough to remember me when she went to the mall and got me one. Its in Red Delicious and smells just like apples. It looks like a pinker red in the tube but is clear on the lips with a slight pink tint. I love her, she's so nice!

So Today I spent 3 hours driving around with my sister practicing. My driving test is in a month exactly and I am so nervous/scared/anxious but excited. I still need to get the hang of parking. It will be sooo much easier to get my second job if I drive. My sister already gave me a car as well. Its not fancy or new but it was a gift so I can learn to drive in it, and when I have more experience I can think about getting a new car. My car is a little red Dodge Neon. I've been searching all day for some cute car seats covers, and steering wheel covers. I definitely want to add my girly touch to the car ha ha!

Let me know if you guys know the name to the Wet n Wild lipstick. I ripped the plastic and didn't bother to check =(
