Floral Pants


It's finally getting warmer in NYC which means you'll be seeing more smiles coming from this face:) Today I will be sharing the outfit that I chose to wear to my sisters 11th birthday party over the weekend. Surprisingly these HUE leggings were a huge hit! 

Quote Of The Day

Your largest fear carries your greatest growth.

Por fin está calentándose en Nueva York lo que significa que van a ver más sonrisas de esta cara :) Hoy voy a compartir el traje que elegí para ponerme en el cumpleaños de mi hermanita este pasado fin de semana.

Deep Blue


One item that I continuously wore during my recent trip to St. Lucia was this bold Shabby Apple dress. The color was perfect for a tropical weather region and the fabric was extremely comfortable.

5 Reasons You Should Visit St. Lucia


My family and I had the opportunity to fly anywhere JetBlue flies and I honestly hesitated in picking St. Lucia. Aside from those who don't have a clue where St. Lucia is, others think of it as the number one honeymoon destination and I now understand why. It was always a place I wanted to visit. Perhaps without kids (I thought). As stubborn women that we all are, I decided to bring the kids along and find things to do with them on the island.

Thankfully, we were able to book a 4 night stay at Capella Marigot Bay Resort (very last minute) then ended up extending our stay even longer than we planned (you'll see why)..

Floral Dress

St. Lucia 


We all get extra lazy when on vacation, and it's totally OK! 
This shoot was taken after coming out of the beach, jumping into the pool and taking a 30 minute boat ride back to the resort to have lunch. #lionesshair

Thankfully this Maggy London dress is gorgeous and no one noticed my crazy hair. 
I was super sunburned and didn't want to get anymore sun exposed because the dress is sleeveless. I added this light-denim shirt and tide it in front for a fun twist while still allowing the floral dress shine. 

I'm hosting a giveaway with Maggy London! See rules below:

 $150 gift card for one lucky winner to get this look. 
-Must Follow @MaggyLondon and @NYTrendyMoms on Instagram. 
-Tag a friend who would also love a dress from the collection for the chance to win their own shopping spree.

Once you've done all these steps, comment on my latest instagram photo let me know you followed. Winner will be announced Monday, March 23rd. 

Good Luck!

Shorts and Platforms


It's only Tuesday and for some reason it feels like Friday! After coming back from my trip to St. Lucia I have this extra joy in me. Could it be from all that sun I soaked-in? & yes.. I finally caught a tan. 

Todays look is Spring and Summer inspired as NYC has had a few warm days this past week. 
In celebration of Henri Bendel's one year of monogramming, they've added a new monogram option- Zodiac signs! 

This Jetsetter Drawstring Crossbody bag from the Jetsetter Collection is one of the pieces you're able to customize as well as the W 57th Collection here. You're also able to personalize your choices in all 28 Henri Bendel stores! 

Quote Of The Day
Meeting new people, going out in the world, and travel are all important to sagittarius sense of well-being.

Apenas es martes y por alguna razón se siente como viernes! Después de volver de mi viaje a Santa Lucía tengo esta alegría extra en mí. ¿Podría ser de todo el sol que cogí? Y sí .. finalmente estoy bronceada.

Este traje de hoy fue inspirado por la primavera y el verano como Nueva York ha tenido un par de días cálidos la semana pasada.

En celebración de Henri Bendel un año de monogramas, han añadido una nueva opción para monograma- signos del Zodiaco! Esta bolsa de la Colección Jetsetter es una de las piezas que puedes personalizar, así como la Colección W 57th aquí.

You Own My Heart!

St. Lucia


My girls love being girls. They love hair accessories, flowers, shimmery things and... hearts! Therefore, when Leanne saw this overalls from H&M she instantly fell in love with it. Naturally her favorite detail was the heart. I knew I had to give this denim look a little more character. I added this belt by Ralph Lauren, this adorable polkadot shirt and silver sandals from The Children's Place. To complete the outfit I clipped two clips on her hair. TADA!  

A mis chicas les encanta ser niñas. Les encantan los accesorios para el cabello, las flores, las cosas relucientes y ... corazones! Por lo tanto, cuando Leanne vio esta pieza en H&M al instante se enamoró de el. Naturalmente su detalle favorito es el corazón. Yo sabía que tenía que dar a este traje un poco más de carácter. He añadido este cinturón de Ralph Lauren, esta camisa adorable y sandalias plateadas de The Children's Place. Para completar el traje añadí dos clips en su pelo.

One Of A Kind


Every year when the seasons start changing I automatically start wearing all black, it's become a habit. To the point where I do it unconsciously. It's chic, timeless and you can never go wrong. 

Quote Of The Day
In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present. -Francis Bacon
Cada año, cuando la  temporada comienzan a cambiar empiezo automáticamente a usar negro, se ha convertido en un hábito. Hasta el punto en que lo hago inconscientemente. Es elegante, atemporal y el 'negro pega con todo'.

New YOUTUBE app for KIDS


It's finally here! YouTube just launched their new YouTube Kids app. You guys don't know how long I have been waiting for this! The app has so many great features made just for kids. The speech search is one of Leanne's favorite features as it actually understands what she is saying. I love how it's such a safe place for kids with no pop-ups and it even has a sleep timer. I can now fall asleep without having to take the tablet away or having to worry about what they're watching.

After downloading the app my girls have newly discovered great educational shows (for younger kids) such as Mother Goose Club and others.

The app is available now. If you have kids, make sure to download it.
YouTube acaba de lanzar su nueva aplicación YouTube Kids. Ustedes no saben cuánto tiempo he estado esperando esto! La aplicación tiene tantos grandes características que son sólo para niños. La búsqueda de voz es una de las características favoritas de Leanne porque la aplicación realmente entiende lo que ella está diciendo. Me encanta la forma en que es un lugar seguro para los niños sin pop-ups y incluso tiene un reloj automático. Ahora puedo dormir sin tener que apagar o tener que preocuparme de lo que están viendo.

Después de usar la aplicación mis chicas han descubierto recientemente programas educativos (para niños pequeños) como Mother Goose Club y otros.

La aplicación está disponible ahora. Si usted tiene hijos, asegúrese de bajarla.

National Pancake Day!


Today is National Pancake Day and I'm happy to share my kids favorite pancake recipe which I make every Saturday. I pick the fruits depending on the season and sometimes I even make them savory (these are my favorites). Find recipe below.

What to do with old bras?


A few years ago I bought a great looking bra from Victoria Secret. Two and a half years later it started showing signs of an 'old' bra. I mean, I wore this bra pretty often and the more I washed it the less it would fit. Instead of shrinking it would expand. What I didn't realize was that the band on the bra was too loose because of it's age. I was really disappointed because it was my favorite bra! 
You know that feeling when you love something so much and you simply can't hold on to it anymore? Well.. that was the feeling I had when I opened that bin and just dumped the bra out! Thankfully, I don't have to feel that way anymore. 

We all know the saying "certain things get better with age" but bras are not one of them! 
Old bras can be uncomfortable with wire sticking out and loose bands. These are problems we all experience with old bras... and what do we do when this happens? We throw them out! 
Today I'll be sharing with you an incredible way to earn money towards a new bra for those old useless bras that belong in the garbage.
