Matchy - Matchy


top: Cooper & Ella  ||  sweater: J.Jill  ||  watch set: Anne Klein  ||  boots: n/a (similar here)  ||  hat: Boohoo  ||  backpack: Kipling  ||  scarf: Vintage YSL

Hello Trendsters!! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and happy Holiday. Unfortunately, I didn't have a very 'merry' weekend. My youngest daughter, Leanne got some type of stomach virus and we weren't able to go out for two days. Thankfully, she's feeling much better now. Thank you everyone who sent out get well wishes.

Moving on to today's look; Burgundy Galore! This is probably my most favorite look I have ever shot on the blog. I think it has a lot to do with my new motivation, new goals and new haircut/hair color! You probably cannot see any difference because I always have my hair curled. A few days ago I was giving my girls their yearly haircut and decided I needed a bit of a change as well. I got a little scissor happy and cut more than i wanted to. I gave myself a layered cut and dyed my hair black. My natural hair color is light brown and I just love how healthy and shiny black hair looks. I think it's a good change for 2017. What do you think? 
Hola Chicas! Espero que todas hayan tenido una Feliz Navidad y felices fiestas. Por desgracia, no tuve un muy 'feliz' fin de semana. Mi hija menor, Leanne tiene algún tipo de virus del estómago y no pudimos salir por dos días. Afortunadamente, ahora se siente mucho mejor. Gracias a todos los que enviaron buenos deseos.

Pasando a el look de hoy; Esta es probablemente mi mirada más favorita que he filmado en el blog. Creo que tiene mucho que ver con mi nueva motivación, nuevos objetivos y nuevo corte de pelo / color de pelo! Usted probablemente no puede ver ninguna diferencia porque siempre tengo mi cabello rizado. Hace unos días estaba dando a mis chicas su corte de pelo anual y decidí que yo necesitaba un cambio también. Me di un corte en capas y me teñí el pelo negro. Mi color de cabello natural es de color marrón claro y me encanta cómo el cabello negro se ve saludable y brillante. Creo que es un cambio bueno para el 2017. ¿Qué piensas?

“The Long Story Short”

I've teamed up with CROSS to share "The Long Story Short". Hope you enjoy!


Everyone is always so curious as to how we met. Moe and I. How two people who come from completely different backgrounds made an impossible marriage happen. On December 1st, 2016 we reached our 9th year wedding anniversary. 9 years filled with love and a rollercoaster of adventures. 

I remember when I met Moe and didn’t think I would ever see him again. That awkward moment when he said hello and I was in the middle of shoving a burger down my throat (it's true). 

Our story wasn't love at first sight nor has it been rainbows and butterflies. It has been a wild ride filled with many emotions, supporting each others crazy ideas and overcoming many cultural barriers. Yet, we're here. Together as one.

Over the course of 9 years we have learned to listen to our hearts and not the loud noise around us. We have learned to follow our dreams and not the traditional path that was written for us. We've learned that only one thing really matters in life and that's Happiness.

ONE GOAL. Happiness. 12.1.07 #WriteGift

NEW* UES Healthy Restaurant // Dig Inn


I recently visited Dig Inn's new Upper East Side location (1297 Lexington ave) and I couldn't wait to bring you my thoughts here on NYTM. Even though it was my first time visiting, I have only heard amazing things about it via friends so I knew I was in for a treat.

Dig Inn serves seasonal and locally sourced American food, using only the best ingredients and always trying to offer healthier options. We (New Yorkers) need more restaurants like these in our area specially our youth. To be completely honest, I was a little hesitant to bring my daughters here only for one reason, it's what Zareena and Leanne would call a "healthy place". I don't know what it is but the minute our youth hears the word 'healthy' they automatically shy away from it. They think they will be eating only carrots and celery. At least that's what I thought when I was younger. However, times have changed and you can substitute nearly anything with a healthier option.

 For example; when my girls looked at the brunch menu at Dig Inn. They decided to go with the waffles until they read the 'quinoa' part. Yes, it's true! The waffles they serve are made from quinoa. Of course, my girls changed their minds. Nonetheless, I still ordered them because I wanted to give it a try. Mind-blowing! Way better than standard waffles. They were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, just like a waffle is supposed to be. They even cook them with coconut oil so you get a mouthful of wonderful flavors. It was so good that my girls admitted healthier waffles do taste a lot better than regular ones. Ugh! We can't imagine eating regular waffles after these. 

Moving on to one of my favorite things in life, Avocados. I remember being 5 years old and my grandmother making me avocado toast as an afternoon snack while I sat on a rocking chair underneath a mango tree. Always so simple and delicious. I wonder how this dish which came from humble beginnings become so popular in major cities? I don't have the answer to this question but I'm glad it did. Of course, Dig Inn is adding their own spin to this classic dish. They are adding ricotta cheese and lemon zest which simply adds an immense amount of freshness as well as an extra layer of flavor. So good!!

You can't think of a healthy breakfast/brunch without having almond butter with bananas cross your mind. This is a great healthy option for those who love something sweet in the morning.

Black Is Always In

skirt: Tart Collections  ||  blazer: BCBG  (similar here)  ||  scarf: Spratters & Jayne  ||  shoes: SJP

I'm back again with an outfit post. Today's look is an all-black outfit. One of my favorites to style. They always turn out effortlessly chic. 

You might remember this Spratters & Jayne scarf from a few months ago. It's my absolute favorite because of it's design and incredible warmth. Even though I'm wearing a blazer and a skirt in 40 degree weather, I'm not cold whatsoever due to this scarf. It's almost like wearing the most cozy blanket ever. My favorite way to style this scarf is with an all-black outfit since this way you'e able to really focus on the unique design of the scarf. & in case you're wondering, It's always a show stopper when I wear it out.  

Today I'm pairing it with this Tart Collections skirt. It's the prettiest skirt I currently own (I'm obsessed with it!). The material is a super soft faux leather with four beautiful cutouts around the skirt. I decided to wear it without leggings but you can totally add black leggings for a more elegant chic look. This skirt would be perfect for any Holiday look.
Estoy de vuelta con un look nuevo. El look de hoy es un traje todo negro. Uno de mis favoritos para estilar. Siempre resultan bien chic y sin esfuerzo.

Puede que recuerdes esta bufanda de Spratters y Jayne de hace unos meses. Es mi favorita debido a su diseño y lo mucho que mantiene caliente. A pesar de que estoy usando una chaqueta y una falda en un clima de 40 grados, no tengo frío en absoluto debido a esta bufanda. Es casi como usar la manta más acogedora. Mi forma favorita de estilar esta bufanda es con un traje de todo negro ya que puedes realmente ver el diseño único de la bufanda. 

Hoy estoy emparejándola con esta falda de Tart Collections. Es la falda más linda que poseo actualmente. Estoy obsesionada con ella! Ya me la e puesto 3 veces y solo tengo una semana con ella. El material es un cuero suave con cuatro recortes hermosos alrededor de la falda. Decidí usarla sin leggings pero puedes agregar totalmente polainas negras para una mirada más elegante. Esta falda sería perfecta para cualquier look de día de fiesta.

Holiday Gift Guide Under $50 / JCPenney

JCPenney is celebrating the “Joy of Giving” this holiday season and I'm sharing all the details with you. JCPenney is the destination for a variety of great-unexpected gifts—to match the many people on your list. We are all shopping with a budget in mind and I'm here to help! The “gifts under” categories on the JCPenney site will help you find the right items, at the right price.


The holidays are quickly approaching and I believe it’s best to be over prepared rather then under-prepared. I have a big family and like to give everyone (even the pets) a gift during the Holidays. I like being a smart shopper by keeping each item under $50. It’s a no brainer to head to JCPenney to pick up pieces at the best prices.

Let’s start with ‘ The Cook

Cooks Griddle $24.99

JCPenney HomeTM 50-pc. Porcelain Dinnerware set $89.99

Baking is one of my families favorite at home activities and last year my husband gifted me a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. This by far, one of the most used items in my kitchen. My daughters are obsessed with cupcakes and without this Mixer it wouldn’t be possible. Therefore, I wanted to include this KitchenAid Professional 600 Stand Mixer as its on sale ($449.99) only from JCPenney.

The Techie

Tzumi Bluetooth Wireless Headphones with build-in microphone $24.99 (available in 3 colors)


Anything Levi's makes the perfect gift for him. Specially if you get it at the best price in JCPenney.

You know what will go perfectly with those Levis pieces? Converse! Shop them here.


Liz Claiborne Phone Charging Wallet $30

Adidas NEO Baseline Women’s Athletic shoes $59.99

This  studded skirt is perfect for the fashion lover. I'm wearing a size 2.


There are so many fun pieces like Arizona graphic tees and cool leggings for girls 7-16 y/o and of course the cool toys this season.

I hope all these gifts help you out this Holiday season.

What Velvet Dreams are made of

Holiday // Plaid

black top: Behno  ||  jeans: boohoo  ||  shoes: Christian Louboutin  ||  watch set: Anne Klein  ||  sunglasses: Rayban  ||  clutch: Express  ||  scarf: n/a (similar here)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving day! 
I actually took a small break after quite sometime. It felt really nice and refreshing to spend much needed time with family, do a little Black Friday shopping and upgrade my phone to an iPhone 7. Surprisingly, it was a very productive break to say the least. However, I must admit I missed my social media family too. Feels good to be back!

Every year during this time I love switching my style (just a bit). Since December is my wedding anniversary and birthday month I tend to become this festive ball of joy during this time. Incorporating more reds, patterns and sparkles. I think all the beautiful windows on 5th ave and hundreds of Christmas lights around the city simply inspire me during this wonderful time of year. 

The pops of color I chose today were my lipstick (ruby woo by Mac), my shoes (Red Pigalle by Christian Louboutin), my clutch (Express) and my scarf (NY street vendor / find similar here and here). Ever since I found these boohoo pants I cannot take them off. These are so fun and unique and only $35! Wait.. boohoo is having a 60% off their entire site today only so you'll be getting these jeans for only $14 when you use code CYBER60!! I love how they give the entire look an edgy feel. To continue with the edginess I added a Behno top over my white shirt. I love versatile pieces like this black top which can add a touch of personality to literally everything. The other day I wore it over a long sleeve red dress and it looked so good. Did I mention it's currently on sale! 

Moving on to accessories. The watch set I'm wearing today is by Anne Klein. I'm wearing it in white but it's also available in black and in pink. These sets are my absolute favorite and would make a great gift for the Holiday. Remember when I wore a chunkier set here. LOVE!
Espero que todos hayan tenido un maravilloso Día de Acción de Gracias!
Realmente tomé un pequeño descanso después de bastante tiempo. Se sintió muy agradable y refrescante pasar el tiempo muy necesario con la familia, hacer un poco de compras y actualizar mi teléfono a un iPhone 7. Sorprendentemente, fue un descanso muy productivo por decir lo menos. Sin embargo, debo admitir que extrañaba ami familia de medios sociales también. ¡Se siente bien estar de vuelta!

Cada año durante este tiempo me encanta cambiar mi estilo (sólo un poco). Como en diciembre es mi aniversario de boda y mes de cumpleaños siempre me pongo bien alegre durante este tiempo. Incorporando más rojos, patrones y brillos. Creo que todas las hermosas ventanas de la 5ª avenida y cientos de luces de Navidad alrededor de la ciudad simplemente me inspiran durante esta maravillosa época del año.

Los pops de color que elegí hoy fueron mi lápiz de labios (ruby woo de Mac), mis zapatos (Red Pigalle de Christian Louboutin), mi cartera (Express) y mi bufanda (de un vendedor en la calle / encuentra una similar aquí. Desde que encontré estos pantalones de boohoo no puedo quitármelos  Estos son tan divertidos y sólo cuestan $35! Espera .. boohoo actualmente tiene una oferta de un 60% de descuento solo hoy. Así que estos pantalones te saldrán por sólo $14! Así que usa CYBER60 para obtener esta oferta. Para continuar con el look añadí un top de Behno sobre mi camisa blanca. Me encantan las piezas versátiles como esta camisa crop negra que puede agregar un toque de personalidad a literalmente todo. ¿He mencionado que está actualmente en venta tambien!

Vamos a pasar a los accesorios. El reloj que llevo hoy es de Anne Klein. Lo llevo en blanco pero también está disponible en negro y en color rosa. Estos sets son mi favoritos y haría un gran regalo este Diciembre.

Luxe Little Black Dress

dress: J.Jill  ||  necklace: Heather Hawkins  ||  boots: Vince Camuto  ||  bag: Etienne Aigner  ||  sunglasses: Celine  

If you asked me 'What's the one thing in your closet you cannot live without?' I would say a little black dress. & to be honest I have lost count of how many I own. This is the one piece of clothing I can't seem to get tired of wearing. Specially if its anything like this Pure Jill Luxe Tencel dress by J.Jill.

I love this dress so much that I bought a few for my family for Christmas. Aside from it being super comfortable due to the Tencel-blend fabric, soft and lightweight I love the flowyness and how versatile it can be. You can wear it with printed leggings for some fun action, leather leggings for a chic look or add a nice belt to create a different shape. I, like it as is.
Si me preguntaste '¿Cuál es la única cosa en tu armario que no puedes vivir sin ella?' Yo diría un vestido negro. Y para ser completamente honesta he perdido la cuenta de cuántos tengo. Esta es la pieza de ropa que no puedo parar de usar. Especialmente si es algo así como este vestido de J. Jill.

Me encanta este vestido tanto que le compré unos para mi familia para Navidad. Aparte de ser super cómodo debido a la tela de mezcla Tencel, suave y ligero me encanta la fluidez y lo versátil que puede ser. Usted puede usarlo con pantalones o añadir un cinturón bonito para crear una forma diferente. Ami, me gusta como es.

Mid-Week Style


top: Aeropostale  ||  jacket: Urban Outfitters  ||  jeans: NYDJ  ||  belt: Urban Outfitters  ||  sneakers: Melissa shoes  ||   

Last weekend I ran a few errands and needed to be 100% comfortable and what better way than wide legged NYDJ jeans and Melissa sneakers. Today I caught myself wearing something very similar so I thought why not share this Mid-Week Style.

El fin de semana tuve que hacer muchos mandados y no encontré nada mas cómodo que pantalones y tenis.

Breaking Bad Habits


One the most asked questions on this blog is "how do I stay healthy?" & the answer is " I don't". There's simply no better way for me to answer this question than with this quote; " If the goal is that important to you, you'll achieve it". 

There are lots of distractions in our daily lives. Believe me I, more than anyone knows. Yet, I don't let that define me. I don't allow those distractions steer me away from what's important. & what's important is my health, my life. Then again.. It's quite easy for me to say this right now since I have finally found MY routine. I figured out the routine that ties into my schedule perfectly but it wasn't always this way. 

Please note that I am only sharing my experience with you and what works for me might not work for you.

A Vintage Dress With a Story


You've guys seem to love my ' Mixing Hi's and Low's' outfits. Therefore, today I'm bring you another one (dj khaleds voice) haha. Also, I've been getting a little more active on Twitter.. so if you'd like to chat tweet me @NYTrendyMoms :)

I don't mean to brag but.. some call me the vintage queen! Alright, I'm kidding. I like to call myself the vintage queen because somehow I always get lucky finding beautiful pieces in the strangest places. I walk around the city, a lot! & I'm always bumping into small shops, yard sales, thrift stores, vintage stores, even junk yards. You name it, I step right in because you just never know what you'll find.  

To keep the story short; I bough this dress for $15 at a vintage store. Original price was $75! I would like to take a moment to thank my grandmother for her amazing bargaining skills that she somehow passed on to me. Anyways, a $15 elegant dress which is unlike any dress I've ever seen can be paired with beautiful Christian Louboutin shoes, nice hair and makeup.. and you're ready to go.

Happy Halloween!


No October is ever completed without a Halloween party. My girls attend one every year during the day and never like wearing their actual costumes (they leave that for Halloween night). I love shopping at H&M for fun pieces like this pink bat dress and this glittery web dress that are Halloween themed and can be worn for many fun occasions. & speaking of fun events... 

One event you wont want to miss today is the annualHalloween at Chelsea Market . Suited for children of all ages, the event will feature trick-or-treating along with carnival-themed performances. With the market decorated with its celebrated Halloween decorations, highlights of the event will include stilt walkers, jugglers, and plenty of other spooks. Additionally, attendees will also have the opportunity to view Chelsea Market’s giant pumpkin with master carver Hugh McMahon. The event is free and starts at 3pm-5pm today October 31st, 2016 at Chelsea Market 75 9th Avenue New York, NY 10011
