My Favorite Beauty Ingredient: Coconut

April 22, 2016   


There are very few beauty ingredients that can do it all, but coconuts comes pretty close. Natural beauty devotees swear by this stuff for just about anything (including myself). I use it for everything from my hair, to removing my make-up to even make my own natural deodorant.

Here are some ways you can incorporate this wonder ingredient into your own beauty routine:

Face: Coconut oil is great for removing make-up, even the most resistant water-proof mascara. I've been using it for about one month now and love it. Simply apply it with a cotton ball and then rinse off with warm water.




Hair: I've been spending a lot of time at the beach and pool with my little guy so to keep my hair hydrated and soft,  I've been using this Coconut Water and Vanilla Milk Shampoo and Conditioner from the Ganier Whole Blends line. It uses naturally derived ingredients (like Coconut Water) and it's also Paraben-free. I love that it leaves my hair looking super healthy and soft.



Body: If you're a DIY mixologist, you can even consider making your own natural deodorant using coconut oil. You simply mix equal parts coconut oil and baking soda, and voila, you've got your own natural deodorant. We also can't forget how beneficial coconut water is. It's naturally hydrating and even has electrolytes. I like to drink it by itself after a workout or mix it into my favorite smoothies.


Also don't forget to jon the Garnier Crowd on Crowdtap for a chance to receive some Garnier goodies. Just make sure to enter your shipping address on Crowdtap once you join. Stay tuned for even more upcoming opportunities to try Garnier products, as I’ll be reviewing other products in the weeks to come.

VF Travels: My Wardrobe Travel Must-Haves

April 20, 2016   

I just got back from Tulum, Mexico this week.  It was absolutely amazing, from the beaches to the food, to the entire vibes of the town (I'll be posting a guide to Tulum next week, so stay tuned). One thing I always struggle with when it comes to traveling is packing.  I always feel like I'm never going to have enough clothes or that I'm overpacking. One of my new rules is to try to stick to a lot of basics and neutrals. This way I can easily mix and match throughout my trip.

I had been searching for a good quality tank top in a neutral color for quite some time now and was excited when I came across these silk camis and tank tops from Grana. They have the most amazing tops in almost every color (and the quality is amazing).  I ended up getting them in olive, black, white and blue (in size Small) along with these olive shorts. They're so versatile, I would wear them dressed up for dinner and also dress them down like I did here while visiting a natural park in Mexico.



Here are a few of my favorite pieces that you might want to consider for your next trip.


1. Off White Silk Racerback, Grana, $45
2. Black Silk Tank, Grana, $29
3. Pastel Blue Tank, Grana, 29

4. Olive Silk Shorts, Grana, $45

5. Gladiator Sandals, Target, $24

VF Travels: TULUM

April 12, 2016   

Hey guys, I arrived to Tulum today to celebrate my birthday. I'll be turning 32 on Thursday! This place is absolutely gorgeous and I'm so grateful I get to spend it with this little guy. I decided not to blog during my trip (taking a much needed little break) but I'll be back with regular posts on Monday. In the meantime, here's a shot I took this afternoon once we arrived. You can also follow along on Instagram (@VivaFashion), SnapChat (@VivaFashion), Twitter and on Facebook, as I'll be posting tons of pics.

Can't wait to share with you pictures of my trip once I get back, along with tons of tips (including traveling to Mexico with a toddler). Have a great week.

xx,
Carmen
