Close To The Sea

What's your zodiac sign?
For those who don't know, I'm a Pisces
I love water. Even more when the weather is melting-hot!

I have no problem with that because I live in Puerto Rico, which is a small island. The beach is less than 5 minutes away from my apartment. Funny thing is that I don't go as often as I should! You may think it's laziness, but it's more about having such a busy life. This past weekend I went to Laguna del Condado, where I watched people do paddle-boarding as I relaxed with the salty smell and the warm breeze.

My outfit was inspired in this kind of environment. I thought a sheer see-trough top and some loose shorts would be the best match for this kind of afternoon. To pair this summer look, I wore peach lips and a baby blue flower crown.

Review: Current Make Up Favorites

Review: Current Make Up Favorites

Bloggers & readers! How are you?

Today I'm sharing my thoughts about what's in my make up bag. I decided to do this, since I feel so satisfied with my current products and I may help you discover some good stuff. 

1. Lorac Blush Bronzer Duo
I wont change this one ever again. You can get the porcelain look with the pink side or the sun-kissed look with the bronzer side. If you mix them, you'll get a perfect/natural finish

2. Phytogenic Infinite Concealer Duo
I got this one at The Face Shop Store, during my last trip to N.Y. It has liquid foundation and concealer bar at the same time. I love it because it inwon't dry up that sensitive skin area, but will give you a very good coverage.

3. Volum' Express The Rocket 
Voluminous & very long eyelashes. That's what you get from this one! Best one I've ever tried and mascara is the most important part of my make up kit.

4. E.L.F. Essential Eyeliner
Easy to apply, dries fast and soooo good for the cat-eye! One of my favorite things about this one is that you can make a thin line or a bold one. It all depends in the amount you apply. Oh, and it lasts all day! Oh, and it is not expensive at all.

5. Sephora Collection Cream Stain
I don't like to use lipstick and even less red. I've always preferred matte tones on my lips and this one is so intense and uniform that I can draw fuller lips and still look natural.

Would you give it a try to any of these?



Feeling Sunday

Hi readers!

My Sundays are for waking up late, relax and do whatever I want. I like to dress comfortable and feel like the day itself: free. If I don't hit the beach, I'll probably prepare a homemade brunch and then take a walk around town or maybe visit someone. This outfit, from Gatsby, feels so lose and carefree I could do yoga with it. Also, the spaghetti sleeves are perfect for the high temperatures of summer.  Sounds convenient, doesn't it?

This past weekend I realized how many amazing museums I've visited around the world, but still haven't been to one in my country. Can you believe that? I didn't made an entrance, but passed in front of the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico and promised myself to take a look inside pretty soon! In this occasion, I was in the mood to keep walking and go for a little home-deco/Father's Day shopping. Yeah... It was that kind of Sunday and I loved it!

Review: Pantene Damage Detox & Deep Cleanse

Hey there!

Your hair does not enjoy your summer adventures as much as you do. Pool, sun and salty water added to the daily toxins everywhere, can cause a lot of damage to one of the most precious and notable parts of your body.

This time I'm reviewing a product I talked to you about some weeks ago [ post here ]. I've been using it for more than a month and have already seen the results.

Deep Cleanse Shampoo and Conditioner:

At first I thought it was making my hair look dull and wanted to go back to the one I tried before, but as I kept using it day by day, I discovered the damage repair was a long-term process. I noticed it was regaining strength and was definitely starting to look healthier and stronger. It felt like giving my hair a boost of proteins and vitamins with each wash.

Weekly Deep Cleanse Shampoo:

Pros, pros and more pros! This shampoo makes my hair feel so weightless and deeply clean... totally/absolutely clean. So fresh you'll wanna wash it every day, even though you can't, because this one is made to use once a week.

Weekly Rehab Cream:

I guess the Weekly Deep Cleanse Shampoo works so roughly on your hair, you have to use this intensive conditioner treatment so you don't lose shine. It's the perfect combination with the weekly shampoo!

You can take a look at my actual hair in [ this post ].

Are you ready to detox your hair this summer?




Little White Dress


How important it is to have in your closet the famous "little black dress"? Yes, it is so elegant, classy and easy to wear! But let's be honest, who wants to wear black on summer? What about having a "little white dress"? It'll accentuate your sun-kissed skin and will build a better look to visit the pool-side area. 

A white dress could be a risky piece, since it's a revealing color and may be see-trough. This [ Gatsby ] dress has the perfect shape, fabric and texture to achieve that sexy, but chic look to your girl's day/night out. When styling a black dress you need to pay attention to some details in the combination. The same happens with a white one. You don't want to look blah, so you need to add some color to your lips or/and accessories. Here's how I mix my colors:
