Rent the Runway Experience [Steal]

One of my closest friends tied the knot last weekend and for her wedding, I decided to use Rent the Runway. I usually buy a new dress for every wedding I attend and then never use it again. I think renting a dress is such a great idea because you spend only a fraction of what it really costs. You save money and time.

$10 Ruffle Trim Top [Steal]

Ruffle Trim Top Outfit

A few weeks ago I felt adventurous and visited Forever21 at La Cantera, here in San Antonio. I was looking for something to wear with a leather skirt I bought from ZARA. I saw this cute top with ruffles for only $10. 

Pineapple Island Rice [Eat]

I love Asian food, all types Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Indian, etc... and fried rice is right on the top of the list! I have shared with you guys before a Chicken Fried Rice recipe, which is one of my favorites. 

Holiday Steals Under $50 [Steals]

I can't believe the Holiday Season is starting! Thanksgiving is this Thursday and I plan to party until New Year's Eve! Oh, wait, until my birthday January 14th! This is my favorite season because you get time off to enjoy your family, friends and eat lots of good food. Also, you have a really good reason to dress up!  


Things to do in Lima [Travel]

Lima is the capital of Peru and it is located in the coast. There are a lot of things to do in Lima but since we were there for only 2 days we just did a few things. Below I will point out what to do and where to eat (very important). We started our tour downtown Lima, to be precise at Plaza San Martin. 


Vegan Poblano Mac and Cheese [Eat]

I have been trying to eat healthier by having a vegetarian/vegan diet during the week and allowing myself to eat animal products during the weekends. Also, I started cooking more, maybe because I got awesome wedding gifts for my kitchen. The deal is that we are having a Thanksgiving potluck at work and one of my coworkers is vegan (he doesn't eat any animal product, not even honey). 

Two Days in Cusco [Travel]

On our way to Machu Picchu, we stopped by Cusco for only two days. We got there on a Saturday with the best disposition of going out and explore everything! We asked our taxi driver about any tours and he mentioned a quite few, but they all started pretty early. 

Tie-Front Dotted Blouse [Steal]

A few weeks ago I saw the H&M Fall Collection TV spot. It features many of the fall collection items, but this tie-front dotted top caught my full attention, not only because of the style but because of the price. 

Travel Guide and Advice to Machu Picchu

If you are planning on visiting Peru make sure Machu Picchu is on the list. Machu Picchu is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and it is a must! I've seen many pictures but being there is something else, it is out of this world. It is incredible to see how the Incas created this citadel on the top of the mountains. I would love to go into details about the history and who discovered these ruins (Hiram Bingham in 1911) but I will let you research it or let your tour guide tell you all about it. It is very important to buy your tickets before traveling, probably months in advance. I think we bought ours like one month before the trip. They do not sell tickets at the entrance. Here is the link to purchase them, machupicchu.gob.

Brocade Booties [Steal]

Several weeks ago my future sister in law had her birthday and as a good Mexican I procrastinated and ended up buying part of her gift last minute (I had already 2 pairs of earrings as a gift, but wanted to give her something else). 

Fall Ready [Steal]

Fall Outfit, Choker Neck Top, Black and Grey, Double buckle Belt

I know it’s not even September but I am starting to get tired of summer. Here in Texas temperatures are very hot, sometimes up to 100 degrees! Don’t get me wrong, I love summer; long days and sunny skies, but I am pretty excited about cooler temperatures and PSLs. 🍵🎃

Sayulita Pueblo Mágico [Travel]

Sayulita was one of the places we visited during my bachelorette party.  I really wanted to visit this town because it’s on the list of “Pueblos Magicos”.  (What does that mean? That it is a "Magical Village" is a place with symbolism, legends, history, important events, day-to-day life – in other words, "magic" in its social and cultural manifestations, with great opportunities for tourism.) 

Choker Neck Dress [Steal]

Not sure if this is an old, new or non-existing trend, but I really liked this choker neck embroidered dress. I love that it looks casual for work and fashionable for happy hour/dinner. Plus, it's always good to keep an LBD in your closet. I am actually wearing this outfit today for work because I have a family dinner after! 


Guide for a Bachelorette Party in Mexico [Travel]

A month ago my friends and I were celebrating my bachelorette party in Mexico! 
I wanted to go to Puerto Vallarta-Punta Mita-Sayulita, So we did! We had an amazing time. As I mentioned in my previous post "Punta Mita", we stayed at the Iberostar Punta Mita and transported ourselves in a taxi. We had a blast, although I got sea sick, I will do it all over again, but this time with some Dramamine. 

The Most Unique Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta [Eat & Travel]

During my bachelorette trip, my MOH made reservations at this super cool restaurant called "La Leche" which means "The Milk". This place is one of the most unique restaurants I have ever been to. Everything inside is white, like milk. The decorations are minimalist and contemporary which gives this place a chic and trendy atmosphere.  

Pink Earrings & Lemon Yellow Top [Steal]

As far as I can remember this is the third yellow item I own. I pretty much like to stick with basic and/or neutral colors like white, gray, blue and black. 


Punta Mita [Travel]

I just came back from Punta Mita, Nayarit, a small town on Mexico's Pacific Coast. This beautiful village is in the middle of the jungle where there are many high-end resorts, golf courses, and upscale homes.  

I went there for my bachelorette party and I will be posting all about the fun activities we did, soon!  For now, here is a quick guide with tips on the trip essentials, transportation, stay and what to do.

Denim Flat Mules [Steal]

Mules have been trending now for a while. I remember a while back seeing the Gucci Embroidered Loafers everywhere! I really think they are super cool, but I can't afford to spend my car payment in some shoes. 💖


Mexican Themed Bridal Shower [Steal]

The month of June has been a month full of bridal showers! I've had one every week so I will be posting about them. Initially, I wanted to get married in Mexico with tequila and delicious Mexican food, but at the end, we decided it will just be easier to do it in San Antonio. When my mother asked me what I wanted for my bridal shower I told her that all I wanted was tequila and Mexican food, so her and my aunts threw me a small Mexican Party. 

"I do" Bridal Shower Bliss [Steal]

This weekend my closest friends threw me a bridal shower. It was an intimate gathering at a cute bistro in my hometown, Brownsville, called Lola's Bistro. We had brunch, mimosas, coffee, cake and an awesome time! I've known all of them for more than 15 and some even since we were in our mother's bellies.💖

My Summer "Musts"

Summer is just around the corner and these are the "musts" for the season. 

Tassel Necklace and Cluster Earrings: Tassels are the perfect accessory for this summer! They are fun and colorful! I added to my outfit this cute tassel necklace from GraceStone a shop on Etsy! You can wear it with anything and look ready for summer. I also got the cluster earrings from GraceStoneJewels, they are so cute I wear them almost everyday! The best thing is that these earrings are only $5 and the necklace only $15! Shop GraceStoneJewels

Oversized Button-Down Shirt & Earrings [Steal]

One of my favorite wardrobe essentials is the classic white button-down shirt. I like it because you can wear it with almost anything and wear it anywhere! I got this oversized button-down shirt at TJ-MAXX for less than $20, it was a real steal! 

Sangria on the Burg | Fusion Flavors [Eats]

I came for the sangria...I left with a big smile and stretched pants!

My cousin and I decided to meet for drinks after work, so I suggested Sangria on the Burg since I heard really good reviews from some friends.


Double Buckle Belt [Steal]

Back in 2015 was when I first spotted Kendall Jenner wearing a double buckle belt. I immediately thought I must have it! I first ordered one through Amazon, (Large Size) but it was extremely small. I was very disappointed and thought that maybe I just don’t look good with belts. So, I returned it and got over it.  


Knit Weather [Steal]

Winter is still here but in San Antonio weather is always unpredictable, one day it's too hot and the next day too cold. But today we have the perfect weather for a knit top because it is not too hot but not too cold.

Franks: Hot Dogs | Cold Beer [Eat]

Frank San Antonio Hot Dogs

Hot dogs are one of my favorite foods. When I learned about Frank, I didn't hesitate for even a second about trying it. Frank which is an Austin-based restaurant recently opened here in San Antonio. Frank specializes in homemade artisanal sausages, offering unique flavors such as antelope, rabbit, venison, alligator and others.

Perfectly Imperfect: Vest Outfit [Steal]

Vest Outfit

I've always loved vests! I think it's a piece of apparel that makes you feel good. It's happened to me that I wake up and my self-esteem is through the floor. Trying out a million outfits and still thinking I look fat or everything looks too tight. Well, a vest covers those "imperfections", well at least that's how I see it. Plus, it makes me feel stylish! 

Tuscany in Texas [Travel]

Last weekend I visited the Texas Hill Country. We stopped by the Duchman Winery, in Driftwood, Texas. We went there specifically for the wine before stuffing our faces at the famous BBQ place, Salt Lick. There are many vineyards/wineries in the Texas Hill Country, but this one looked very Italian, like Tuscany.  Although I've only been to Rome, Venice, and Florence, I've seen movies (Under the Tuscany Sun) and this place, reminded me of it. We did some wine tasting and then got one glass of our favorite wine.

Sequins for Brunch [Steal]

featured, sequins for brunch, sequins, day time outfit, street style, casual

Sequins are always fun to wear! Although when I hear the word sequins, I usually think of nightlife, new years eve, Las Vegas or something similar to that. I know sequins can be a little too much, but if you match them with the right pieces it makes the perfect daytime outfit. 

Pattern Print Dress [Steal]

Retro Pattern Print Dress

Loving the weather right now, especially because I can wear boots with a dress. I got this super cute retro-looking pattern print dress for Christmas and I absolutely LOVE it! (Thank you so much Julia & Jeanie, you guys rock!) I paired the dress with some knee-high boots that I got a while back!
