For The Smoothest Skin: fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish Review!

   Smooth skin is life and a good scrub will give you just that. A good scrub needs the best combination of exfoliation and hydration. A scrub with no hydrating ingredients can over exfoliate which irritate the skin, one with too much oils, soaps, or other add ons can be too hydrating but not aid in the skin turnover we want from a scrub. 

What I love the most about this scrub is how soft my skin feels, and not a super oily and tacky feeling that some leave behind. A baby smooth softness that very few scrubs give. The best part is that the feeling lasts for days. Moisturizing after is really not necessary at all! 

The best way to describe the scent is "Sweet citrus" with a hint of peppermint, its smooth and not overpowering. I got a good 4 uses out of the 7oz size container and like to use it once a week, as the last step in my shower. I love it and recommend it to anyone wanting smother, healthier, and more vibrant skin.

Life Update: Four Girls, A Breast Lift And Lots Of Goals!

As some of you may know I have been giving this blogging thing a go for a LONG time now, way before it was even so popular. Its something that I genuinely love to do and every time I let life get in the way and stop doing it, I cant stop thinking about it. I wanted to start making these life update, this way I not only keep my self accountable for the goals I set for myself but to also keep it 100 with all of you. According to my Facebook history it was a little over six years ago that I first uploaded a video to youtube, six years is a long time. 

During those six years I stayed active for maybe half the time, I would start blogging consistently make a little progress then stop. Well my friends that is why today November 20017 I am not any where near as successful in the blogging word as my peers that started blogging around the same time  as me. There are days that this makes me feel a little frustrate with myself, but these past six years, while I have not been consistent with my blog I have been consistently growing as a wife and mom. 
I am now the mother of four beautiful girls, we moved in to a dream home last year and I am now more clear and focused on what I want to gain from "influencing". 
The one thing that people fail to realize is that blogging takes A LOT of work, I find my days struggling to make time in the day to get some post up. There is so much details that go into it now, everything is so saturated and there is where someone starting can get discouraged.

I always get asked the same questions, how do I start a blog, how can I be successful. My answer is always the same: do what I haven't done, be CONSISTENT!! I cant stress that enough, its unbelievable the amount of engagement I get when I'm consistent. The second most important, be genuine I refuse to post or share anything that I wouldn't recommend to my family or use myself. Last, make sure its something you truly love and enjoy or it will not work out. My last advise for anyone wanting to start a blog? make a schedule, plan out your week every Sunday, this is where I struggle because I have five lives that depend on me and can change the course of my day on any given moment. That being said if you have it written down on a calendar it will most likely get done. 

I will end this part of my life update with this quote that its as real as the Six and a half years that has passed since I uploaded my first video: " Don't think about what can happen in a month. Don't think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be. 

Mama Got A Boob Job 

Breastfeeding my girls was always the plan, it was something that I can never imagine not doing. I bonded with them in a way that no one else in the world can. That beautiful experience however left your girl with her Double D boobs looking like a hot mess! I knew I needed a lift and a reduction even after Gabi (13) but there was no way I could ever live with the idea I wouldn't be able to breastfeed any of my kids so I patiently waited to be completely done having babies. 

The truth is I always felt guilty for wanting to get a breast lift, my family however were all so supportive that after Camila my angel baby, I went and did something for me. The thought of going under the knife was the most stressful thought I ever dealt with. I could not shake the possibility that I could die. I cried so much and honestly thought of not going thru with the surgery many times. 

I will not get to into the whole logistics of it but I am happy to say even after some complications I am happy I did it. I was hoping for a smaller cup but because of all the excess skin I had, the implant had to be of a larger size. Today almost 3 months post-surgery I am almost back to normal. I think when all the inflammation is gone I will be a true C cup which will be great. 

So thats my life update, I look forward to 2018 being the best year of my life!

DIY Of The Week: Depuff And Brighten Your Under Eyes Instantly!

Lets face it, the holidays can be both fun and stressful at the same time. The days seem to only get shorter and your list of to do's only get longer. I show this stress in my eyes, they get so puffy and dark that it looks like someone punched me in both eyes. 

As much as I love to rely on my daily routines to treat my skin imperfections, nothing works quite as good as my DIY's. The ingredients are fresh and the results are always more noticeable. One of my favorite ingredients for skin lightning (brightening) are in this amazing mask. Use it and let me know if you love it as much as I do! 

1 Tablespoon Mashed Banana
1 Tablespoon Raw Potato (Shredded) 
Lemon Juice 

Mix together banana and potato and add just a squeeze of lemon juice. Place mixture in the fridge for 10-30 minutes before applying under the eyes. Make sure you don’t get any in your eyes when applying. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before removing gently with a wet towel. Repeat up to Three times a week if needed.

Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer Review!

I think we can all agree when I say that concealer is one of the most important makeup items. A great concealer is supposed to conceal, even out, and the most important not crease like crazy. I have been a fan of Nars concealers for sometime now and I just became obsessed with their most recent one.

Nars soft matte concealer is perfection, I love it so much that as of late, I exclusively use it for doing my makeup. I carry it in my makeup bag to apply it on the go with confidence. It comes in my skin color, it needs minimum setting, and does not crease on me at all.  The coverage is full and the finish is exactly a "Soft Matte" the best way to describe it. 

I have very dark and noticeable veins in the side of my eyes as well as dark circles and the concealer cancels everything out. I also use it all over my face where I need a little coverage and it gives my skin such a natural healthy look. It's the perfect tool for the "no makeup" makeup look! My daily routine consists of this concealer, mascara, blush and lips. I highly recommend it and think its one if not the best concealer I have tried.

DIY Of The Week: Grow Longer Healthier Hair With Four Ingredients In Your Kitchen!

  I can honestly say that nothing keeps my hair healthier or growing long like my all natural DIY masks. I can tell the difference almost immediately after washing the masks off and the benefits don't stop there. One of my all time favorite masks is made up of four of my favorite ingredients; Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Honey, and Egg. Rich in proteins, omega-3, anti fungal and hydrating ingredients. I like to use this mask every other week, and use a regular shampoo and conditioner in between. 

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 egg

  1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients, make sure to beat the egg first before adding the other ingredients. 
  2. Apply it to hair, coat starting from root to ends, massaging it in the scalp in slow circulation motion. This will encourage faster hair growth 
  3. Cover hair with a plastic shower cap and leave it on for at least 30 minutes. I leave it on while I clean around the house to get the maximum benefits.
  4. Rinse
  5. Wash off hair completely and style as usual.
  6. Enjoy beautiful, long, healthy hair!
