What to do on Valentines Day?

IMG_4941

Here comes the desperate time of year again; Valentines Day! The time when you don't know what to get that special person in your life. You don't want to be a cheapskate and you also don't want to break the bank. You simply can't get the question out of your head; What to do on Valentines Day?

Did you know that many people stay single to avoid these crazy times (believe me, I know a few). Keeping it 100% with ya'll.. I'm on the fence about the whole thing. Yes it's fun wearing red every year, receiving chocolates/ flowers and getting a 'Happy Valentines Day' from strangers. Yet, I believe you shouldn't need a specific day to celebrate love. You should celebrate it everyday.

Despite how I feel.. today I will be sharing some fun things that I personally experienced throughout the years and highly recommend doing for Valentines day. Hopefully it helps some of you make some V'day plans.

2017 Highlights / Family Roadtrip

IMG_4066

Last Summer I partnered up with Chevrolet to go on a family Coastal Road trip driving their 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. Our goal was to end up in Portland, Maine. We were clueless when it came to adding stops to our trip, restaurants to eat in, scenic areas to stop, hotels to stay, etc. While going through my phone I realized I had downloaded an app a few months back which would help with our dilemma. & just like that using the Roadtrippers app we found our fist stop, Walnut beach. I knew I wanted to visit the beach since my daughter, Hazel is a rock collector. So I thought, wouldn't it be fun to stop and find some souvenirs to bring back home?

Bathroom Renovation / Revealed

I'm super excited to finally share my bathroom renovation with all of you. As I promised, not only am I sharing photos but I'm also sharing direct links to where I purchased everything. I know a lot of you are thinking of revamping your space and hopefully this serves as inspiration.

 When we first purchased our house the bathroom wasn't in terrible conditions although it was a little too pink for my taste and backdated. Our home was built in the early 1920's and was partially renovated in the 50's. I didn't hate it at all. Maybe if it was an apartment I was renting, I wouldn't have mind but since it's our first home in which we will be living in for many years to come, I think the change was necessary. As you can see below, the bathroom was in great shape. The previous owner even changed the vanity a few months before selling us the house.


My inspiration for this room was

2017 Highlights / Visiting Morey's Piers

IMG_1050

It's almost 2018!! Can you believe it? This year just flew by. Last night I was cleaning out my photo album in my computer and noticed hundreds of photos from places my family and I visited this year that were (for some odd reason) never published. I will admit as fun as this year looked for us, it wasn't all rainbows and butterflies. We were going through hard times and at some point things got out of my hands and I couldn't keep up with my personal life and blogging life. That's probably why so many events weren't recorded here on the blog. I'm happy to share them now :)

If you're not following me on social media (which you should be @nytrendymoms) then you might not know that in 2017 we purchased our very first home, traveled to so many of my dream locations and met so many incredible people along the way but most importably.... we're currently expecting a baby! I know, it's crazy but I'm so happy it finally happened after so many failed attempts. That's how I know 2018 will be amazing!

& what better way to say goodbye to 2017 then by sharing all the places we visited during 2017 that I didn't end up posting. Today I will share our experience visiting Morey's Piers (3501 Boardwalk, Wildwood, NJ 08260).
___________________________________________

¡Es casi 2018! ¿Puedes creerlo? Este año simplemente pasó volando. Anoche estaba limpiando mi álbum de fotos en mi computadora y noté cientas de fotos de lugares que mi familia y yo visitamos este año que nunca (por alguna razón extraña) no publique. Debo admitir que este año no fue todo arcoiris y mariposas. Estábamos pasando por tiempos difíciles y en algún momento las cosas se salieron de mis manos y no pude seguir el ritmo de mi vida personal y bloguear. Esa es probablemente la razón por la que tantos eventos no se registraron aquí en el blog. Estoy feliz de compartirlos ahora :)

Si no me sigues en las redes sociales (@nytrendymoms), es posible que no sepas que en 2017 compramos nuestra primera casa, viajamos a muchos de los lugares de mis sueños y conocimos a tantas personas increíbles en el camino. pero más importante ... ¡actualmente estamos esperando un bebé! Lo sé, es una locura, pero estoy tan feliz de que finalmente haya sucedido después de tantos intentos fallidos. ¡Así es como sé que 2018 será increíble!

y qué mejor manera de decir adiós a 2017 que compartiendo todos los lugares que visitamos durante 2017 que no terminé publicando. Hoy compartiré nuestra experiencia visitando a Morey's Piers (3501 Boardwalk, Wildwood, NJ 08260).

Sephora inside JCPenney + Playing with Urban Decay Distortion Eyeshadow Palette

IMG_5201

If there’s a brand that can do makeup right, it’s Urban Decay. I’ve been a fan since day 1 and am impressed with each item they release every time. Today I was lucky enough to team up with Sephora inside JCPenney to share an easy makeup look that would be perfect for any special occasion using the new Urban Decay Distortion Eyeshadow Palette.

Welcome Home | Keepsake

IMG_5256

These past few months have been insane. If it wasn't for my recent trip to Jamaica I think I would've lost my mind awhile ago. From being a new homeowner, to dealing with an awful contractor, to getting seriously sick from eating outside everyday since our kitchen is still not finished. Time has been one of the most difficult things to keep track of. Everyday is either running to the doctor or running to The Home Depot. Many of you might not be aware of the situation
