Flowy Blue Dress

IMG_0616

I'm back with Walk-the-Walk Wednesday! 
Today's fashion related post is all about my recent partnership with JCPenney. I've joined the #SoWorthIt club where I get to style new pieces ($50 and under) each month. This months pick was this stunning chiffon maxi dress. I looove this dress so much!! Lately I've been wearing blue more than ever and I don't know why but I dig it. A few of my favorite features of the dress are the shoulder peeks. I know we've been seeing to much off-the-shoulder these past few months and it's nice to see a different approach to the trend. I find this cut of dress fun and girly but also classy at the same time. What drew me to this particular dress was the high-low detail at the bottom as well as the flowyness of it. So perfect for this season!

Let the Wind Blow Your Hair

Welcome back to Walk-the-Walk Wednesday, where the topic is always fashion related.
Many of you were asking me what I wore during my trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. If it was up to me I would've worn denim shorts and a light chiffon top like this one by Moon River all day long. It wasn't too hot where I stayed ( Grand Hyatt in Playa del Carmen ) yet I still couldn't handle the humidity. As you can see my hair did not want to cooperate and it's why I had to do a messy braid.

Yoga Young

There's nothing more satisfying than unintentionally teaching your kids good things. I've always been well aware that kids pick up absolutely everything their parent do and say. This is the reason why my husband and I are very careful as to what we do and say in front of the kids. Over the past two years I've been practicing yoga on and off. Yoga helps me in many ways. For example; when I'm having a really tough day I love doing yoga to help me clear my mind. Yoga also helps me with my posture or when I simply need a good stretch. Most of the times I practice yoga when the kids are at school or when the kids are asleep. This is basically the only quite time I get on a daily basis. Although they don't physically see me practicing yoga, they know I do it.

 A few weeks ago my oldest daughter started watching yoga on YouTube. I didn't really think much of it. Just thought she was curious since I talk about it sometimes. A few days later she asked for workout gear. We've always been very athletic, we love running and doing various outdoor activities and enjoy watching American Ninja Warrior. The next thing I knew, she was practicing yoga in our living room. One thing is introducing some type of sport to your children or forcing them to do an activity. Something completely different is when they pick up an activity on their own because they purely enjoy it.

I was shocked and happy, of course. This goes to show... they're always watching!

Mother's Day Gift Guide (Beauty)

I don't know about you, but I think Mother's Day should be every single day. Do you agree?

I really dislike the pressure that comes with gifting a loved one anything, especially mom. You want them to feel like you didn't just buy it, but you thought about them the minute you saw the item. Let's just say.. buying a gift is easy. I mean, anyone can do it. You have to do a little something extra to show them they are special.

Gifts sometimes fill us with joy and every time we see it, it reminds us of the person who gave it to us. Every year I try to gift something special to my mom because I know how much she loves gifts. She would prefer a pair of shoes instead of a fancy dinner any day. Now you see where I get the shoe obsession from. haha

Today I decided to handpick a few of my absolute favorite beauty products along with a few I wish someone gave me (I hope you're reading this, Moe). I wanted to also be realistic about the prices and keep the quality of the brand high. This gives us the chance to take mom to dinner, buy her flowers and gift her a little something special during dessert. Because every mother should be treated like a queen everyday
