Gifts For Him


Let's face it ladies, when it comes to buying gifts for men we're clueless. Part of buying the perfect gift for him has to do with what we want him to wear. We (women) love a man in a suit and tie. It's classy, timeless and men simply look sooo good in them. With that said, today I will be sharing with you two of my most recent favorite accessory brands located in NY that caters to your mans needs. Let's start with Noble Breed
Seamos realistas damas, cuando se trata de la compra regalos para un hombre no tenemos ni idea. Parte de comprar el regalo perfecto para él tiene que ver con lo que nosotras queremos que el se ponga. Yo no conozco a ninguna mujer que no le gusta que su hombre se ponga un traje y una corbata. Es elegante, atemporal y simplemente se ven muy bien en el. Con eso dicho, hoy voy a compartir con ustedes dos de mis marcas favoritas ubicadas en NY que se dedican a las necesidades para el hombre. Vamos a empezar con Noble Breed.

Silk + Pleated


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I have so much to be thankful for. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year because I get to spend time with my mothers side of the family and cook my heart out.  I always put a ridiculous amount of love in everything I make but when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner I OD (which ofcourse is a good thing). Part of it is because I hardly spend time with them and I want them to make this special dinner part of there good memories. I have so many people to thank for giving me such an amazing year and amazing life. My blogaversary (december 11th) is coming up and so is my birthday (Decemeber 15th). I am so excited and I have to thank God, my family and my readers. That's all my life is about, literally. Here are some quotes that keep me going everyday and I hope they help you when you're feeling down. 

"Strive for what you want in life and you'll achieve it"
"Ignore Ignorants and focus on the positive"
"Do not go where the path may lead, instead go where there is no path and leave a trail"
"Be you and be happy"

I literally can go on for hours but the point is, life is too short. Don't live it for others and don't dwell on the negative. Take a moment to say 'I love you' to those who are special to you. This Thanksgiving make it a priority to change your wrongs to right and live a better and positive life. 


Now for the outfit details...

Dress In Cobalt For The Holidays


When wearing a bold color like this cobalt blue it is best to keep everything else simple; hair, lips and only one statement accessory. Whether a necklace or a chunky bangle, you don't want to overdo it. I love the sophistication that these white gold diamond earrings from CB Luxe bring to the look; simply sparkly and perfect for this Holiday season.
Al vestir con un color azul cobalto como este lo mejor es mantener todo lo demás sencillo, como el pelo, los labios y sólo un accesorio. Ya sea un collar o un brazalete grueso, no quieres exagerar. Me encanta la sofisticación que estos aretes de diamantes en oro blanco de CB Luxe traer a este traje, simplemente brillante y perfecto para esta temporada de celebraciones.

Be Red Carpet Ready Everyday

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Unilever and Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions expressed below are my very own.


My job requires me to Be Red Carpet Ready Everyday. The steps to achieving that has a lot to do with how I look and feel when I am bare. A relaxed shower is certainly the highlight of the day for most working moms. Let's face it, it's amazing having some time to indulge and feel refreshed without hearing kids cry, right? After using this Caress tempting whisper body wash in Wild Peony & Plum I honestly look forward to showering 2 and 3 times a day. Not that I didn't before but you know what I mean. I also love the confidence that this scent gives me and the fact that it stays on for hours. It's also nice to use it right before bed, specially if you have a significant other :)


Caress offers the sophisticated floral scent of white peony with the fruity accent of red plums. It is a playful and sensual fragrance with a voluptuous white bouquet of wild peony, tuberose and Ylang. fued over a backdrop of tonka beans and white musk.

Berry Holiday


Here's another way of wearing this laptop case from caseable that I recently wore here on my 'Back to Work Mondays' post. I loved the idea of wearing it as a clutch because I love a great color combination and contrast with any outfit. Break from the Red bold lip tradition and into berry lips for this Holiday season. You can see how I achieved this flawless lip here.  Black is sort-off a safe color to go with for the Holidays but everyone loves it. It's timeless and makes you look slim; so why not. I decided to add hints of red and berry through the top of this look, almost like an ombre. Remember if you have too much going on ontop, keep it as simple as possible on the bottom. That's the reason for all the black below. I hope this look inspires you for the festivities approaching. 
Ésta es otra manera de usar este caso portátil de Caseable que recientemente me puse aquí en mi 'Back to Work Mondays' puesto. Me encantó la idea de llevarlo como bolso de mano porque me encanta una buena combinación de color y contraste con cualquier traje. Rompa la tradición de labios rojos y trate colores mas rosa para estos días de fiesta. Usted puede ver cómo he conseguido este labio impecable aquí.  El negro es un color seguro para ir a fiestas y a todo el mundo le encanta. Es atemporal y permite que se vea delgada, así que por qué no. He decidido añadir toques de rojo por la parte superior de esta traje, casi como un ombre. Recuerde que si usted tiene demasiadas cosas en la parte superior, mantenga la parte inferior lo más simple posible. Esa es la razón por todo el negro abajo. Espero que este traje la inspire para estas próximas fiestas.

The Perfect Smoky Eye


Last week I gave you some tips and techniques on how to apply a bold lip and how to achieve flawless skin. I got incredible feedback and I am very thankful for that. Since the Holidays are approaching I want to continue giving you ideas for you to use during this Holiday season. Today I will guide you on how to get the most perfect smokey eye using Target's Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Kit ($25). 

The Kit comes with 5 different pens and a sharpener which will help you achieve the right shade for your color eyes and skin complexion. Many of you might not know that a great smoky eye isn't just applying black liner on to the lid and waterline- but actually applying shades of browns and grays and blending them till the color is just right. I love keeping a mellow lip when I do a smoky eye. Nudes or light shades of pink work best. 
La semana pasada le di algunos consejos y técnicas sobre cómo aplicar un labio audaz y cómo lograr una piel perfecta. Me dieron comentarios increíbles y estoy muy agradecida por eso. Hoy voy a guiarles en cómo obtener el ojo ahumado más perfecta usando Pixi Kit Endless Silky Eye Pen ($ 25) de Target.

El kit viene con 5 plumas diferentes y un sacapuntas que le ayudará a conseguir el tono adecuado para sus ojos de color y complexión de la piel. Muchos de ustedes no saben que un gran ojo ahumado no sólo se aplica delineador negro en la tapa y la línea de flotación, pero en realidad la aplicación de tonos de marrones y grises y mezclarlos hasta que el color es justo. Me encanta llevar un labio suave cuando hago un ojo ahumado. Colores desnudos y color rosa trabajan mejor.

Back To Work Mondays


A bold loose blouse tucked in under high waisted straight pants looks great on everyone. Especially when we're talking business wear. By throwing on a straight fitted blazer and this black and white laptop sleeve from caseable will help bind everything together. You guys might remember me sporting a different laptop sleeve from caseable a few months back {here}. I just can't get enough of the amazing quality they offer. If you didn't see my previous 'I'm talking business' outfit you can find it here. Remember; keep it trendy and keep it classy.

Click HERE for more awesome designs from caseable's new 'black and white collection'.
Have a great day guys!
Una blusa floja con pantalones rectos de cintura alta se ve muy bien en todo el mundo. Sobre todo cuando estamos hablando de ropa de negocios. Al lanzar una chaqueta equipada recta y esta bolsa para su portátil en blanco y negro de caseable ayudará unir todo junto. Ustedes se recuerdan hace unos cuantos meses luci una blosa diferente de Caseable aquí. Yo simplemente no puedo tener suficiente de la calidad increíble que ofrecen. Si no ha visto mi otro "traje de negocios' puede encontrarlo aquí.
 Recuerden, mantenganse ala moda y mantenenganse con clase. Que tengan un buen dia chicos!

How To Dress For Fall With Sophistication


In honor of tbt (throwback Thursday) I decided to bring back this look I posted back in April. Coat season is back and I though this was a perfect way to wear a coat while keeping things sophisticated. 
En honor de tbt (recuerdo de jueves) me decidí a traer de vuelta este look que publiqué en abril. La temporada de abrigo está de vuelta y pensé que era una manera perfecta de llevar un abrigo, manteniendo las cosas sofisticadas.

Leopard Dress


A leopard dress is like a little black dress, we all need at least one in our closet. 
Un vestido de leopardo es como un vestido negro, todos tenemos al menos uno en nuestro armario.

Welcome November


As we prepare ourselves for the holiday season we have an urge to dressing holiday'ish, or maybe it's just me. Either way, this tweed jacket mixed with this mustard sweater by Eileen Fisher screams out Thanksgiving. I love this combination of colors and believe it's great for any occasion. By keeping the bottom part of the outfit downy, it allows you to stay classy and really standout without trying. Remember, too much of anything can be a bad thing. & yes, I am wearing silver and gold. How do you feel about mixing these two?
Cuando pensamos en el otoño por lo general pensamos en el color naranja, hojas en el suelo, labios de color burdeos oscuro y un suéter tejido grueso. Quería tomar esos datos para crear un atuendo inspirado en el otoño. Por supuesto, con la adición de unos pocos elementos de moda a la mezcla. Siempre he sido un fan de la mezcla de colores y texturas, pero hoy quise mezclar el oro y la plata. ¿Cómo te sientes sobre la mezcla de el oro y la plata?

A Night With A View


I discovered a new obsession, waistcoats! Despite me buying a couple through the years, I never payed too much attention as to how I feel when wearing .. and I feel really really good in them. Instant sophistication with a touch of coolness. I bought this one from Zara (i've added plenty more below). As time passes by I start appreciating and paying a little bit more attention to things and how they make me feel. I think this happens to all of us, correct? 
Descubrí una nueva obsesión, chalecos! A pesar de comprarme un par a través de los años, nunca he prestado mucha atención en cuanto a cómo me siento cuando usarlos .. y me siento muy, muy bien en ellos. Sofisticación instantáneamente con un toque de frescura. A medida que pasa el tiempo empiezo a apreciar y prestar un poco más de atención a las cosas y la forma en que me hacen sentir. Creo que esto le sucede a todos nosotros, ¿verdad?

There are many perks in being involved with a different culture. Well, only if you're a foodie like me. If you merely knew the amount of time I spend eating bengali food, you would certainly think I'm nuts. Part of it is because I am hooked on cooking traditionally. In my mind I try to figure out the spices added in each dish to soon after recreate those dishes at home. Call me crazy but that's what a creative foodie does. Theres a bit of a thrill when trying a new Bengali dish. You know, almost that feeling when you sit on a roller coaster and are ready to take off, yea. that's the feeling. I don't want to say that Bengali food is my all time favorite type of food but, it's pretty close to it. Last weekend I met with uncle X who took my palates on a fun ride.
