My Way Of Spring Cleaning

Yesterday I was feeling a little down and had major back pain from shoveling the snow last week. I know I shouldn't be doing this but I like to keep myself busy throughout the day. Anyways, Moe was really mad at me for doing so and recommended a few topics to write about on the blog that would keep me busy without having to do any lifting around the house. These were his exact words "Please don't do any heavy lifting. Use your strong mind and create something on your blog". One of his suggestions was doing a Spring cleaning post. I've seen these go around every year and they are all the same. They all talk about cleaning your house and organizing your closet. I wanted to provide something different.

I Have Big News!

Like many of you, I spend my precious hours browsing through hundreds of products online. In one site more than others, Amazon. I've been a member for 'who knows how long' and have bought kids essentials, gifts and home decor throughout the years. Just like you!

Since our recent home purchase I've been spending more and more time on Amazon. Not only are their prices unbeatable but you find everything you need in one place. 

Well, to keep this post short and simple.. I was recently contacted by Amazon. I mean, can you even believe that!? I certainly couldn't. Anyways, they basically wanted to give me my own Amazon shop. Ahh! 

I am happy to say that I have my very own Amazon shop ( see it here ) and have earned the title of an #AmazonInfluencer. I can now share recommended items, share direct links (not third parties) to things around my house like my bathroom sink which I got many questions on, my sunglass and watch organizer and so much more.

New Brooklyn Hot Spot

One of my Spring resolutions is to spend less time on social media and have more real time encounters with inspiring women. Over the weekend I set up a nice brunch with a few women who I wanted to rub off energies with. We visited Scriptum located on 65 Kent Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249.

La Mer


I've been on a roll when it comes to beauty posts lately and I'm really happy you are all enjoying them. Since quitting caffeine, controlling my sugar intake and no longer having any morning sickness I have been super inspired to write and shoot content for you guys. I honestly feel like celebrating since I thought the sickness would go on for the entire nine months of my pregnancy.

 You're probably super tired of hearing me say, "When you look good, you feel good" and that doesn't only apply to fashion but also beauty. There is no better feeling than waking up with beautiful skin. Being able to step out your house without a drop of makeup and getting countless compliments on your skin. Not only is this a confident booster for anyone but it also contributes to the flawless finish of any look. Hence, I'm all about new skincare products specially if their by La Mer.

Backtalk Palette from Urban Decay


Urban Decay has released a new Eye and Face Palette named after their bestselling Vice Lipstick shade, Backtalk. They were kind enough to send it over for me to share with all of you. This new palette is a two in one palette. Eight eyeshadows, two highlighters and two blushes are divided by a double sided mirror. The magnetic mirror is also removable.


The palette is full of nude-mauve, soft berry and muted rose shades, perfect for Spring. 



I recommend using the palette along with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil to create a Spring/Summery look. Specially if you like a more dramatic look since the shades on the palette are quite light. I might do a tutorial on my Youtube Channel so be sure to subscribe



Urban Decay is 100% cruelty free. This palette is Paraben free.

Beauty by POPSUGAR at Ulta


POPSUGAR released their brand new all natural makeup line called Beauty by POPSUGAR yesterday. I shared a few of my favorite products from the line on instastories and a lot of you wanted me to share more thoughts on the line. 

I've always been quite skeptical when it came to natural makeup because I've had bad experiences in the past with formulas, pigmentations and smells. I'm happy to say this line proved me wrong in all aspects. I have been excited about this launch for weeks so when POPSUGAR sent over a package filled with products I was ecstatic.

This line was created to be healthy, with smart ingredients inspired by feedback from POPSUGAR's network of 100 million beauty junkies.

About Beauty by POPSUGAR
Imagine a line of cosmetics curated by Lisa Sugar, the founder and president of the #1 independent global media brand for women, based on the feedback of a monthly audience of 100 million and Lisa’s personal passion for beauty. That’s BEAUTY BY POPSUGAR, an original makeup collection that encapsulates everything that POPSUGAR is about: Female empowerment. Kindness. (The formulas involve no animal testing, ever) and healthy living. (No icky toxins here.) POPSUGAR is already a powerful resource for women. With this new venture, POPSUGAR enables them to live a full life in fresh ways, with positivity, joy, and style. 

Let me start by talking about the beautiful clean package. I love how each box has an inspiring message when you open it. You can just tell they put a lot of love and thought into each product. Every box shares information about the product, describes how to use it and has an ingredient list. At the top of all the boxes you'll find the product shade name along with a color preview.

Products I received:

A tinted, high-power gloss with tons of shine in a nonstick formula, and just a hint of nourishing shea butter and natural oils, too. 

I love the packaging as well as the applicator. This product is so nice to have on your lips because it smells delicious and it isn't sticky on the lips. Best of all it isn't filled with toxins. I recently got this and it has already become one of my all time favorite lip glosses. This is definitely a must-have from the entire collection.

What if a matte color could nourish lips, too?
This lipstick makes it happen with color and a satin finish that's pretty and protective.

One of my instant reactions to this product was "omg, I need to carry this around all the time!". I became obsessed with the beautifully clean, lightweight crayon-like packaging. I was in love with the product even before I tried it on. I mean, the color and finish is beautiful and it feels like you're wearing nothing. This product is so easy and comfortable to wear through the day and the shade matches my everyday hue perfectly. 

For a truly healthy glow, POPSUGAR chose real ingredients: natural satin and pearlescent powders like Mica and Silica- For a natural, mermaid-worthy glow, all pressed into multi-colored compact that matches every skin shade. 

Another one of my must-have products from the collection. This color (Summer Lovin') couldn't have been more perfect for my complexion. It's subtle yet buildable and the compact has a mirror for easy on-the-go application.

A magic water that washes liquid color over lids and dries fast.

I was a little confused about product when I first opened it. The consistency is runny so you have to be careful when opening. I first tried it on my hand and it seemed nice but when I tried it on my lids I couldn't see it. I felt the shade wasn't right for me since I have very dark eyelids. I didn't want to just give up on it so I applied it under the Shimmer Putty Powder and fell in love with the color. It turnout to be a subtle metallic shade.

This sparkle-packed eye product may look dark, but it's buildable, so it can go super-sheer, high-impact, or anywhere in between. 

I love this shade for an everyday look. It's shimmery yet wearable and definitely buildable. I like it on its own but love it even more with the Liquid Metallic Eye Color underneath. 

These all natural, gold leaf infused papers are powder and fragrance free. Suitable for all skin types. 

These are perfect for a matte look. If you feel your face is too dewy or oily gently pat a single sheet anywhere there is excess oil. 

A high-impact formula with 2 brushes: thick for volume and length, thin for topline definition and bottom lash access.

Never have I ever seen such a perfect mascara for bottom lashes. It's almost impossible to smudge your bottom lashes due to the thin wand. I wasn't able to try the opposite side which is the thick wand because I currently have eyelash extension but it looks promising.

Overall I'm super impressed with this all natural cosmetics line. Congrats again to POPSUGAR on such a beautiful collection! 

You can shop the entire collection on or at and Ulta stores.

This Past Weekend


Happy Monday my wonderful readers. This past weekend was all about fun activities with the girls and spending time with family. Since I knew we had a busy weekend ahead of us, After waking up on Saturday morning I headed straight into the kitchen (while everyone was still asleep) to prepare a natural air freshener. This smell infuses my entire house with warmth and love and tends to wake up my family. While growing up I woke up to the smell of coffee every single morning and now I make coffee just to smell it. It's nostalgic and comforting. This is what I am trying to create with my daughter, a nostalgic memory. 


-orange peel
-star anise

I add water to a small pot along with the ingredients above. I let it simmer and turn it off before heading out the house. If water evaporates add more water.


After making my air freshener I go into the bathroom to brush my teeth, shower and cleanse my face. I have been using AHAVA Prickly Pear & Moringa Dry Oil Body Mist after each shower which I picked up at Ulta Beauty a few weeks ago. I love body and face oils and this one has been my favorite lately. Another product I live by and have been using for years is the Enzyme Cleansing Gel by Mario Badescu. I introduced this to my husband and he loves it as well. It's extremely gentle on the skin and leaves it feeling so nice and smooth. I follow with my moisturizer. I will admit that I take quite some time in the bathroom before stepping out my house. I mean, it's the only real place to be alone without interruption. Since the silence was feeling quite nice I took advantage to also paint my nails with a color I have been obsessed with lately, Mint Candy Apple by Essie. It's such a nice Spring color that look super nice on short nails.
