My Flower Vault Experience

I started my fashion blog not even one year ago. My life before the blog never included taking any pictures or constantly thinking of places to go that would be great for photo shoots. I’m sure I’ve talked about being camera shy before on here and sometimes I still need to muster up the courage to get in front of the camera, but my fear was consumed by excitement when I saw a new hotspot in my hometown that is dedicated to taking Instagram pictures! This place became a hit in a matter of days and features 5 different rooms with flowers that people can go into and snap photos. This place looked adorable and was featured on some local news stations. You can read more about it here.

I took tons of pictures here and unknowingly encountered some other local fashion bloggers (I saw their photos on my Instagram feed and recognized them) which was crazy to say the least. I took 2 different outfits and tried to pick clothes with prints that would not compete with the floral decor backgrounds and I really liked the way the photos came out! My favorite room is the pink rose one with the chair but I think that the photos in the orange flower room (right below) had the best natural lighting. There were different people that went to enjoy this cute place. Babies, fashion bloggers, couples, bffs and families. You’re guaranteed to be asked by strangers if you could take their pictures so be kind to others and don’t be afraid to ask someone to take your photo too! This is a place a great interaction and fun for everyone!

This was also my first time in the Stone Oak area of San Antonio and it was so gorgeous! I really love exploring my hometown. It is still growing and there is always some event going on that brings people together. If I ever leave San Antonio, it would be pretty hard because I love it here so much, but life is given to us to take us places so we might as well embrace it!

Moving On To Cruelty Free Makeup

Hi everyone, it’s definitely been a while since I’ve been on here to talk to you guys, but I was cleaning my room the other day and thought that it would be a good time during spring break to also clean out my makeup. I have been fortunate to have a mom who loves makeup and will give me products she does not use very often (eyeshadows and blushes only!) and I will have these products given to me without owing any money. I started to build a makeup bag with both drug store and high end products and I love the balance it brings to my beauty routine.


I began investing in Kat Von D makeup products and I got hooked! I now have her tattoo liner and a powdered foundation. I’ve always wanted to have a product from her beauty line and my mom was nice enough to purchase these items for me. The eyeliner is hands down the best eyeliner I’ve ever tried and it’s cruelty free. I had never tried powdered foundation before and the shade Medium 53 matched me perfectly! I began doing research on cruelty free makeup brands and products after the way 2 cruelty free products worked so well for me. I am going to be de-cluttering my makeup bag tomorrow and tossing whatever is old or is not cruelty free or vegan friendly.

Disclaimer: no I am not going vegan and in this blog, I am 110% entitled to my own opinions on this blog so here is my point of view…

While I am not going to go vegan in my diet, I want to slowly but surely use nothing but vegan friendly and cruelty free cosmetics because I know for a fact that we don’t truly need makeup to survive. Animal testing breaks my heart and simply isn’t right. It’s happening in China still and the thought make me sick. I will not wear makeup that has a dark past. Even if that past has changed here in America.

I started off this journey with investing in Kat Von D products and I want to continue until all cosmetic products in my bag meet the standards of no animal testing whatsoever. Wish me luck and comment below which vegan friendly or cruelty free products you like to use! I am still on the hunt for the perfect lengthening mascara so if you have any recommendations, let me know!

On a lighter note, watch my latest YouTube video! I did a video on How To Style Shorts and uploaded that on my channel this morning. Thank you for reading everything if you made it this far and listening to me. Wish me luck on my beauty journey and stay stylish!



Spring Selections

Online shopping is taking over traditional in-store shopping, but I’m sure this is not new news to you isn’t it?

While taking a marketing course last summer, I learned that the most popular online shopping day out of the week is Wednesday while the most popular for traditional shopping is on Saturday.

In my last blog post I talked a little about my cat having to go to the vet and how this really devastated me and my family. Since then, I realized that I have been coping with the devastation by browsing through online shops, yet not really making many purchases. Instead, I have been looking through spring shops which has been getting me excited for spring time which officially starts March 20th.

Just looking at all the bright and pastel colors, floral prints, more dresses and fun shoes, I realized that this has changed my mood. Since I am a college student who needs to save more money, I started to mix and match items in my closet and have made subtle changes that will help me get ready for spring! It’s almost as if I’m “window shopping” but through online stores.

If you want to look at some stores online with really good deals and style selections, here are my favorite places to shop for that:

New York & Company has so many deals and so many colorful clothing that you really don’t want to miss out on what they have to offer. This is a good place to shop when you want spring essentials that are still suitable to wear in the workplace.

Boohoo  has stores located in several countries. The link I provided may send you directly to the U.S. site, but you can easily change it to a country you prefer by clicking the drop down arrow (see image below) next to the flag in the top left. I love that this store even has a men’s line too so they can shop as well!


Lulus has a page dedicated to spring styles which makes your shopping process easier. I know many fashion sites also dedicates a spring section as well, but the clothing on this site was more eye-catching to me than its competitors. If this shop is above your price range, I recommend the spring section in Love Culture

Give these sites a visit if you are wondering how you can prepare your wardrobe for spring. I am not encouraging you to spend all your money on trends, I’m just letting you all know where there are some good places to find some inspiration. I will be releasing a YouTube video next week on simple ways you can make your outfits more spring appropriate. If you haven’t already, visit my channel and subscribe so you can see outfit inspiration and get fashion tips when I make any video uploads! I post content on my YouTube channel that I do not post here and vice versa. My most recent video is all about my go-to hairstyle, so if you are interested in that, visit my channel and check it out!

I hope you all have a happy Friday and stay stylish!


Where I’ve Been & What’s On My Mind

So it’s been a while, but I uploaded a YouTube video on what to wear when it is humid and rainy. I already have a video on what to wear when it is cold and rainy on my channel and since it has been raining non-stop here in Texas, I was inspired to make a different kind of rainy video. If you haven’t already, please watch my latest video on what to wear when it is humid and rainy.

The point of this blog post is to share with you all on where I’ve been and some possible future video ideas. So first off, if you’ve been following me for a while and also have me on other social media, you know that I am a full-time student and part-time employee. This semester I am a student journalist since I am enrolled in a Reporting course. I have been working my butt off trying to find the next story, grab connections, schedule interviews, re-schedule interviews, and remember that I have 3 other classes that I also need to worry about. I am pleased to say that I am going to have one of my stories published on the online publication at my school! This is a big deal for me because I’ve never had work published before and I know that I could now include this in my resume! But you probably do not want to talk too much about resumes do you? Lets talk about pets instead.

About a week ago, my 15-year-old cat fell from the top of the table and landed pretty badly on the floor. He appeared to be having a seizure and was rushed to the vet immediately by my parents. The good news is that the kitty is fine, but my family must respect his age and keep a closer eye on him. He will not jump up to high places anymore, but my family is perfectly fine with that. We love our cat so much.


As for my fashion blogging endeavors, I am working on doing more photo shoots once this rainy weather slows down a bit and I am also looking for other bloggers and businesses to collaborate with. I am sticking to local and small businesses for now, but one day I hope that I could collab with others on a more national level because I know all of you are from very different places and I would love it if we can all share our fashion sense and recommend place we can all go to look, feel and do our best.

Lastly, I want to bring up a major change in my makeup. Personally, my favorite makeup products are lipstick and mascara. I cannot go a day without wearing, or thinking of wearing them. Although my favorite mascara has always been Telescopic by L’Oreal, I am going to no longer use this mascara since L’Oreal, is one of the many cosmetic companies that have remained silent when PETA did research on which cosmetic companies do or do not test on animals at some point of the process. By just that alone, something doesn’t seem right. In fact, makeup has really been on my mind lately, and when I heard all the reports about ULTA reselling used makeup, I started to really think about makeup even more. There are some unethical things behind the scenes that I am not sure about. Therefore I am going to be making some changes in my beauty bag.

These are just a few updates on where I’ve been, and what has been on my mind. What have you lovely people been up to? Let’s talk! Comment below or visit my contact page, find my email and email me!

Removing Makeup. Easy As 1, 2, 3!

Long time no talk everyone! How are you? I’m happy to be back to blogging away and hopefully growing my blogging family. I enjoy hearing from you all and I have always wanted to know how you all remove your makeup. This idea kinda just popped into my head as I found myself removing my makeup not even 5 minutes ago. I know it’s still early, but I have been wearing my makeup all day and since I know that I am staying in tonight, I decided to let my skin breathe and remove my makeup a little earlier than usual.

If you’re anything like me, you actually enjoy putting makeup on, but dread the mess of washing it off.

I love taking my time to put on my makeup, but when it comes to removing it, I just want it to be very quick, effective, and easy to do. I use two different products to remove my makeup and then I use one product to help me moisturize.

Step 1: Make up Wipes

My go to makeup wipes are the Wondra Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes

 These make up wipes will remove your eye makeup and not burn your eyes. There are 40 wipes included in each pack and these have really been the only makeup wipes that have truly worked out for me. I use these wipes first thing when removing my makeup and they are mainly put to use with removing my eye makeup only. wondra

2. For the rest of my face, I like to use a face wash that will not only remove my makeup but also exfoliate my skin. My go-to exfoliator is St. Ives Apricot Scrub


3. Now that all my makeup is removed, I put on a moisturizer. The one I really like to use is No. 7’s Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil


A little goes a long way with this product and it has been really useful after my skin has been drying out so much from the winter. This product also smells beautiful! It’s worth the price and will last you a long time.

Taking off makeup is something that I do every night. I rarely go a day without wearing any makeup to be completely honest, but I absolutely love makeup and I actually wake up every morning looking forward to putting it on. I have always dreaded the process of removing makeup, but I realized that it doesn’t have to be complicated. You don’t have to have a crazy long “get unready with me” routine like all the famous YouTubers do. Removing makeup can seriously be easy as 1, 2, 3!

Don’t overthink things, and stay stylish!

5 Other Ways To Get Over A Bad Day/Setbacks

I left my house at 7:30 a.m. and came back home almost 12 hours later. I kept reflecting on my day and the more I thought of it, the more defeated I realized I felt. How could I wake up feeling so confident, yet feel so down within the same day? Many of you know that a lot can happen in a day. A LOT.

I am a whole lot better now because I realized that there is no use crying over spilled milk and that my setbacks will never ever, overpower my comebacks. Aside from the first 5 things I do to recover that you saw in my video, here are the other 5 ways to make your comeback stronger than any of your set backs. These are different than the first 5 because it now involves others rather than just yourself.

6. Take ownership of your mistake, but keep your dignity.

Oh man. That already sounds hard, but accidents happen! Sometimes our own setbacks happen because we mess up on our end. Maybe we missed a deadline or maybe we accidentally did or said something we shouldn’t have. Whatever happened, if you know you were in the wrong, take a deep breath and take ownership of your mistake. Address it, apologize, whatever it was…do not let pride prevent you from making things right. However, keep your dignity! Do not cry, beg or blame. Remain professional. You’re a sophisticated individual who is better than making a scene like a child. This is probably the hardest step out of the 5, but it is the first thing you need to do in order for the others to work out.

7. Clear Things Out

I mean this in various ways. First off, GET ORGANIZED. Clean out that desk at work, your room, your car, your purse and even your backpack if you’re a student. Sometimes mess in itself can cause us to be overwhelmed so get organized! Keep what you need, and toss what you don’t need. Secondly and more importantly, communication. Clear out what you have been holding inside. Just say it. If there was a big misunderstanding, make it known so that it is prevented again in the future.

8. Ask For Help

If you’re anything like me, you dread asking others for help. Maybe it’s because you feel like you’re interrupting them, or maybe you feel like they’ll think you’re dumb for asking a certain question, but you need to free yourself from those thoughts. In this life, we are all here to learn. Take it upon yourself to seek knowledge. Everyone benefits in the end.

9. Don’t Be Close Minded

I know that the public can sometimes have rocky relationships with the media, but I want you to think of a journalist for a moment. Journalist often have to report stories and try their best to capture both sides of the story. A good journalist is able to do this fine, but a great journalist is able to do this in a way that both sides have a clear voice in the story and neither one of those voices is the journalist! What I’m saying is, to be neutral. Do not judge and pick sides, especially in the work place! Hear others out and try to understand them. This also ties into seeking knowledge. Know when to be a team player and when it’s best to remain neutral.

10. Get Involved.

Listen here, we can all say those four words, “I don’t have time,” but it’s a fact that we can always make time for things that need to get done. Like work, school, homework and all that serious stuff, but don’t forget about the things that make you happy! The things that you naturally gravitate towards. For me, it’s fashion blogging. If I had the “I don’t have time,” mentality, I would not be writing this and I would not be making YouTube videos or have my fashion account on Instagram. I also would have never gotten over my camera shyness! Or gotten the chance to meet interesting people and I know that I probably wouldn’t be anywhere near as happy right now. By doing what you love, you will find yourself getting involved in a community of like-minded individuals who will give you advice, support you and even be friends with! In the process, you may even learn more things about yourself.

Alrighty everyone, I hope that my video and blog motivate you on your own recovery process of going through a bad day. Just remember that your mistakes do not define who you are. Just like my statement in the beginning of my video says, you know who you are. Life is full of setbacks. There are going to be days where the world acts like it’s against you and nothing is going according to plan, but that shouldn’t leave you defeated forever. Life is hard, but that fact shouldn’t stop you from living it!

Keep going and stay stylish.
