Powder Blue


Happy Monday guys!
I'm now packing for my Nashville trip tomorrow and couldn't wait to share this look with you guys before I go. If you follow my instagram you might remember this skirt (here). Today I'm sporting it in a more classy way with black pointed Christian Louboutin shoes and this Cooper & Ella top. If you look closely you'll see all the beautiful details like the holes on the sides of the arms, the flower buttons and the colorful bird print.

Eid Mubarak to those celebrating!
Feliz Lunes Amigos!
Yo ahora estoy empacando para mi viaje a Nashville mañana y no podía esperar para compartir este look con ustedes antes de irme. Si sigues mi instagram podrán recordar esta falda (aquí). Hoy estoy luciendola de una manera más elegante con zapatos negros de Christian Louboutin y esta blusa de Cooper & Ella. Si te fijas bien verás todos los detalles como los agujeros en los lados de los brazos y los botones florales.

Miami Recap

Miami Beach, FL


I had the honor of working with Pantene as the official Social Media Ambassador for the Cosmo en Español's 8th Annual Summer Splash Event in Miami last week. The event was held at the SLS Hotel in Collins Avenue which was the same hotel I stood in. I attended the show and got to be backstage snapping behind-the-scene photos and instagraming away (see here). I was one of the first to get glam'd by the Pantene team. The stylist made a trendy Summer hairstyle 'the fishtail braid' on me and on all the models as well. They walked the runway and looked like they were walking on the beach. I mean the hair, makeup and swimsuits (by Maya Swim and Eberjey) were perfect!
Tuve el honor de trabajar con Pantene como embajadora oficial de medios de comunicación sociales para el Cosmo en Español 8th Annual Summer Splash Event en Miami, la semana pasada. Asistí a la serie y llegué a tomar fotos de detrás de la escena del evento. El estilista me hizo un look en pelo de verano que esta muy de moda 'la trenza cola de pez'. Este fue el mismo look que todas las modelos llevaban. Salieron a la pista y parecían que estaban caminando en la playa. Quiero decir, el cabello, el maquillaje y los trajes de baño (por Maya Nado y Eberjey) eran perfectos!

Schoenhut Piano Giveaway!


My kids have been obsessed with making music ever since they were babies. They've owned many instruments but their two current favorites are guitars and this Schoenhut Piano. After raving about having a piano for months I finally approved and I'm so glad I did. My youngest is so happy with her new toy because she is able play actual songs with the helpful color-guide and it's also her favorite color (black/white is also available).

When we think of our kids owning a piano we think of a keyboard, right? I've never seen an actual piano this cute and made just for kids. This is a high quality toy that your kids will very much enjoy. It comes with a music book and color letters that can be added-on for guidance (view photos to better understand). This is a great and easy way to teach your kids how to play the piano. Schoenhut also offer a variety of other instruments (view here).

Schoenhut instruments are available at all major online retailers and specialty toy shops worldwide. Do a quick google search for the model you like and you'll find tons of pricing options. Continue reading for giveaway details.

Mis hijos han estado obsesionados con hacer música desde que eran bebés y creo que lo sacan de mi padre. Ellas tienen varios instrumentos, pero sus dos favoritos son guitarras y esta Schoenhut Piano. Mi hija menor es tan feliz con su juguete nuevo, ya que es su color favorito (tenían negro + blanco también). Cuando pensamos en comprarles un piano a nuestros hijos tenemos un teclado en mente, verdad? Nunca he visto un piano real y hecho sólo para niños. Se trata de un juguete de alta calidad que sus hijos disfrutaran mucho. Viene con un libro de música y letras de colores que se pueden añadir para orientarlos. Esta es una fácil y gran manera de enseñar a sus hijos a tocar el piano.

It's Family Funday!

New York - Flushing Meadows Corona Park


90% of the times my schedule is booked completely (as many other parents) and it is difficult to have family fun on a weekly or monthly basis. This year I started marking my calendar with specific dates where I leave my phone at home and I dedicate the entire day to my girls.  

Let's face it, we live in a world where the only thing kids know is iPads/tablets and TV. Books have been replaced with tablets and family fun with TV. By the time kids hit age 2, they're iPhone pros. It's a sad story but true. This decreases the amount of self confident in our children and their lack of social skills. It is so important to show your kids a good time by doing outdoor activities. After all, that's real fun!

Today I'm sharing with you all the exciting day we spent with Wheel Fun Rentals. If you're not familiar with Wheel Fun Rentals they are a rental company trying to bring back the 'family fun' we used to know. They offer a variety of bicycles, scooters, pedal boats, electric cars and so much more (view here). They have locations all over the USA. In NY they have 5 different locations. I highly recommend this for a family day out to have fun or relax (on the boats). The prices are decent and the staff is super helpful. Their goal is to make your families experience unforgettable.

We rode our bikes around the park for about two hours. -I would recommend bringing water and eating before arriving. -This is also a nice area to picnic in, bring food and drinks then ride bikes all day. We raced, we stopped to watch the ducks and we joked.. a lot! We felt connected. No one spoke about the new app that came out, or the ridiculous plaything they wanted from the infomercial. My girls were happy, not because they got a new toy but because we were doing something together. It was pure bliss.

Short Shorts


Happy Monday guys!! I'm so happy to finally be back from Miami! If you follow me on instagram and twitter then you know I took a two day trip to MIA with Pantene. I will be sharing photos and more details in an upcoming post:)

Today (as you can see) I'm wearing shorts. This is something I never liked wearing while growing up. There's no particular reason why I never liked them.. I just never ever wore them. These are by Haute Hippie. I love how they can be worn with pops of colors for a night look or with this peach blazer by OVI (like this) for a day look.

Now, hats.. I honestly have a love/hate relationship with them. I tend to only wear hats when on vacation but lately I've been rocking them on my staycation {haha}. They add a luxury feel to any look. This one reminds me of Cuba or Miami. The color, design and material. Very very tropical. I took this hat to Miami (of course) and everyone loved it. On the plane I had two individuals ask me where I purchased it from. I will be getting a few more of these babies soon. Although, I think you only need one black and one white to kind-off match with everything. 

Something else I've been digging is changing my hair here-and-there. The braid trend has been going on since Spring, nonetheless, now we are seeing it more than ever. The reason I love it is because I have a lot of hair and it's an easy way to style the hair without fussing, specially on those hot Summer days.

Feliz Lunes!! Estoy tan feliz de estar finalmente de vuelta de Miami! Si usted me sigue en Instagram y Twitter, entonces usted sabe que hice un viaje de dos días a MIA con Pantene. Voy a compartir fotos y más detalles en un próximo post :)

Hoy (como puede ver) estoy usando pantalones cortos. Esto es algo que nunca me ha gustado ponerme mientras crecía. Estos son por la marca Haute Hippie. Me encanta la forma en que se puede usar con toques de colores brillantes para un look de noche o con esta chaqueta melocotón para una mirada de día.

Ahora, hablemos de los sombreros. Sinceramente, tengo una relación de amor/odio con ellos. Tiendo a sólo usar sombreros cuando estoy de vacaciones, pero últimamente he estado usándolos a diarios. Añaden un toque de lujo a cualquier look. El color, el diseño y el material me recuerda a Cuba o Miami. Muy muy tropical. Me lleve este sombrero a Miami (por supuesto) y a todo el mundo le encantó. Dos personas en el avión me preguntaron donde lo compre. Voy a comprar unos cuantos más pronto. Aunque, creo que sólo necesita un blanco y un negro para combinarlo con todo.

 La tendencia de trenzas ha estado sucediendo desde la primavera, sin embargo, ahora lo estamos viendo más que nunca. La razón por la que me encanta es porque tengo un montón de pelo y es una manera fácil de peinar el cabello sin hacer mucho trabajo, especialmente en los días calurosos de verano.

Red, Black and Stripes

Fishkill, NY


If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then you know how much we travel. We love taking random drives everywhere. What can I say? We're spontaneous people:)

Just a few days ago we drove to Fishkill NY which is about 1 hour and 30 minutes away from NYC. We visited Cracker Barrel for the first time and it wasn't bad. I mean everything we ordered was fried, fried, fried. & you know anything fried is good, right! I'm happy to say I'm done with fried foods for the next 8 months. If you're not familiar with Cracker Barrel, its just a pit stop/ restaurant and gift shop all in one. If you're out road tripping and you spot a Cracker Barrel, you must stop. My girls went crazy with the selections of candy and unique toys in the shop.

Many of you recommended me to go blueberry picking, visit the museums and eat at certain restaurants. We were only there for a few hours but I will be sure to do that next time I visit.

Happy Tuesday guys!
I'm so sorry for not being able to post these past few days. I have been working on a few things and cannot wait to share more details with you soon. Here's a hint* I promised myself that I will travel more often and that is what I'm going to do.

Last week I purchased a few items from Zara's sale (which is still going on). I think I went a little overboard but then again, these are pieces that I will be wearing throughout the year. One thing I've learned about being an expert shopper is seasonal shopping, you know, buying 'off season' items that are on sale and wearing them at the appropriate time. You've probably seen this biker jacket I also got as well, and I cannot wait for the colder days to come.

I got this trench coat in the pile of items I ranked on the sale. I guess you can call it a super light jacket. Perfect for Spring and Fall. I thought It would be the perfect cover up for this tank and shorts combo. I've always loved wearing a jacket or a blazer over my shoulders, it gives me a 'wonder woman' feel with a cape:) I love adding a bit of masculinity to my looks and this straight fitted jacket does just that. The addition of these shorts adds a hint of femininity with the white daisies which certainly complete the look.

I also got these shoes which are a super statement. In the beginning of the year we heard this trend approaching and I finally got my plated item. These shoes would go perfect with a simple all black or all white outfit. How would you wear these?

Now let's talk about these Silk Paradise necklaces. I've gotten so many questions about them and why I wore both at the same time. Well, who wants to be ordinary right? I love stepping out of the box, and sometimes out of my comfort zone to discover new trends. I know I didn't create this 'double necklace thing' but not many think of wearing two statement pieces at once, some think it's too risky, I say do it! There's nothing better than being different, unique and thinking outside the box.

Dino's BBQ, NYC

700 W 125th st, NY


If you're on a diet, exit now!

BBQ is a topic we have not discussed here on NYTM and has been requested many times before. Today we're visiting Dinosaur Barbque in Harlem. One of 8 locations in the USA, which opened in 2004.

If you're driving, note that the Henry Hudson Pkwy is near and parking might be a little difficult. Near by you'll find the West Harlem Piers which offer an incredible view towards Edgewater, New Jersey and deliver the most beautiful sunsets during Summer. If the wait for a table is too long, take a walk by the water, you'll be glad you did.

Miami Vibe + Giveaway


Today I'm sporting the very trendy trend, the crop top. This was my very first time wearing a crop top and to be completely honest, It was a bit intimidating wearing a crop top after having two kids. I'm a pretty conservative girl and never really like exposing too much but after stepping out and getting tons of compliments, this is my new favorite Summer trend. Not only does it look good, if worn right, but it also gives you the illusion of perfect abs:) Continue reading to see how you can win this same crop top.

Happy Monday loves! I hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July weekend.
Today I'm bringing cream to the blog. We all reach for those neutral colors during hot summer days. This dress is by Bar iii and I'm wearing a size small, if you're wondering. The fit is loose which I prefer during hot days. This neutral color dress is perfect for many occasions as well. You can pair it with heels or flats, with a belt or with a blazer on colder days, with a chunky necklace or how I'm wearing it today, simple

Feliz Lunes amores! Espero que todos hayan tenido un fantástico fin de semana.
Hoy les traigo un look perfecto para el verano. Todos alcanzamos por esos colores neutrales durante los días calurosos de verano, verdad? Este vestido es de Bar iii y estoy usando una taya pequeña. El ajuste es flojo y así me gusta durante los días calurosos. Este vestido de color neutro es perfecto para muchas ocasiones también. Puedes sincronizarlo con talones o sandalias para caminar en el parque, con un cinturón o con una chaqueta en los días más fríos, con un collar grueso o cómo lo estoy usando hoy, simple.

White Leather Dress | Meskita


Lately it's all about white, red and blue. Although I'm not sporting anything blue (that you can see, jk) I am representing 4th of July week by wearing white and red. These are colors that can be worn during all seasons (in my book). Bold lips, clean sleek fitted dress and the most talked about shoes on this blog, Kandee Shoes.

We've all seen the leather dress trend on big celebrities such as Rita Ora, Emma Stone, Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham, Taraji Henson, Blake Lively, Jennifer Anniston and of course Kim Kardashian. We've even seen Bollywood actresses such as Priyanka Chopra and many more rock the trend. The controversy isn't about the type of leather, the color or the designer but about how a leather dress compliments a woman's body. This is by far my favorite dress designed by the incredible Alessandra Meskita who calls her unique brand Meskita.
Últimamente se trata de blanco, rojo y azul. Aunque no estoy luciendo algo azul (que se puede ver, haha) Estoy representando para la semana de Julio 4.  Labios vibrantes, vestido ajustado elegante y los zapatos más hablado de este blog, Kandee.

Todos hemos visto la tendencia de vestir de cuero como gran celebridades incluyendo a Rita Ora, Emma Stone, Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham, Taraji Henson, Blake Lively, Jennifer Anniston y por supuesto, Kim Kardashian. Incluso hemos visto actrices de Bollywood como Priyanka Chopra y muchas más usando esta tendencia. La controversia no es el tipo de piel, el color o el diseño, pero como un vestido de cuero complementa el cuerpo de una mujer. Este vestido fue diseñado por la increíble Alessandra Meskita quien llama a su marca única Meskita.

4th of July Party Ideas

Goodbye June, Hello July! 
One of my favorite Holidays is 4th of July & we're only a few days away from it.  I've teamed up with Smirnoff Ice to bring a few ideas to your patriotic festivities. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of 4th of July is refreshments along with fresh fruits. There's just something about both elements together that simply go well. Staying refreshed during summer specially if you're having/attending a BBQ or a simple backyard get together is a must. These ideas will help you do just that.

-Fruit pops-


2 kiwis
Smirnoff Ice Original
white grape juice

Slice strawberries and kiwis. Add blueberries and the sliced fruits to the molds. Fill with Smirnoff Ice Original and white grape juice. Freeze for two/three hours and enjoy. Of course you can skip the kiwi if you want to keep the theme colors red, blue and white. I just thought it looked extra pretty with the kiwi:)

If you're making these for your kids you can skip the Smirnoff and only add white grape juice.
