Beauty: Suave Professionals Natural Infusion

July 21, 2014   

A few weeks ago, I attended an event with Suave and celebrity hair stylist Leonardo Rocco to try out the new Suave Professionals Natural Infusion products. I was pleasantly surprised with how soft it left my hair. The line is infused with Macadamia Oil and White Orchid and also smells really really good. The past few months my hair has been feeling really dry and unhealthy. Mainly because I've been dying it so much (going from light to dark). My mom swears my hair is going to fall off because I dye it so much. After using the shampoo and conditioner, even the hair stylist at Univision (who does my hair for my TV segments) noticed how soft my hair felt. 

The best part is that it's super inexpensive. Each bottle goes for about $3.99. If you're looking to switch up your hair products (and are looking for something budget-friendly) you should definitely give it a try. Let me know what you think! 

Here I am posing with Leonard Rocco who did any amazing job with my hair. 

Head to Toe Summer Fashion

July 18, 2014   

One of my favorite pieces to wear in the summer are floral print dresses. This strapless number is so versatile and can easily be dressed up in heels for dinner or dressed down with these tan sandals and a straw bag.

This short dress wouldn’t be complete without smooth legs. My go-to hair removal product is Nair™ Shower Power™ Moroccan Argan Oil. It’s perfect for your legs and body and even works on coarse hair. Because it dissolves hair below the surface, I can wear more of my summery dresses without having to worry about shaving every day! What’s your go-to outfit this summer?

Video: What to Wear to Minimize Your Tummy

July 16, 2014   

Yesterday I was on Univision's Despierta America sharing tips on how to minimize your belly. Let's face it, sometimes as much as we work out, getting rid of that little "pouch" can be soooo hard! Luckily, with a few style tips you can easily minimize it. Here are some of my favorite tips to help you hide those trouble spots.

Head to Toe Look from New York & Co. 

For Work: 
I love pencil skirts for work. The key is to look for one with a high waist so it helps flatten your tummy, like this one from New York & Co. We paired it with a dark solid blouse, which as we all know, darker colors are always more slimming. 

Quick Tip: By wearing your jacket/blazer open you help create a vertical column, which can make you look leaner and slimmer. It's all about the illusion. Don't forget to show off your best features. So if your tummy is your problem area, why not show off your amazing legs?

Casual Look: 
Wearing things that are too tight is a big DON'T when you are trying to hide your belly. In this case we decided to opt for a tunic, which skims the stomach area and doesn't hug and tug at your belly. You also don't want to go too voluminous, which can also make you look bigger than what you really are. 

This blouse from the Eva Mendes for New York & Co. line is perfect. I love everything about her line, it's feminine and chic and she definitely keeps in mind the Latina curves. The dark wash jeans also help minimize your thighs and can make you look slimmer. 

Dress: David's Bridal; Shoes: New York & Co. 

Night Out

Empire waist dresses are perfect for minimizing your stomach. It cinches right below your bust, highlighting the smallest part of your torso. The deep V-Neck also helps to elongate your neck. We paired this dress with some black heels to add some height and you're ready for a night out in the town. 

VF's Closet: Palazzo Pants

July 14, 2014   

During my recent trip to Mexico I packed tons of Palazzo style pants. They're quickly becoming my go-to this summer. Not only are they so comfy for wearing on the plane, but they can also easily transition from day to night. I wore these Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent pants on my second day in Mexico to do some sight-seeing. I found them at T.J. Maxx! It's the same print as this Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent maxi dress Alessandra Ambrosio was wearing in this picture

These type of pants can sometimes be a little tricky to pull off (you don't want to look like you just rolled out of bed). I would recommend wearing them with tops that are not too loose fitting (and be sure to tuck them in). If you are on the shorter side, consider wearing them with wedges or if they drag on the floor, take them in to be tailored. 

Since I was going to be doing a lot of walking I paired mine with these "sexi flip" sandals from Crocs for just $29.99 in the same color tones as the pants. I finished off my look with this navy and crochet top from Forever 21 and this fedora from H&M.

Home on a Budget: Tips for Adding Some Color to Your Kitchen

From adding color to a wall to having fresh flowers in the kitchen, here are 5 simple and budget-friendly tips to brighten it up.

Place Lemons or Limes in a Bowl: Create a colorful centerpiece for your kitchen by placing lemons, limes or any other color fruit in a bowl. You can also look for other colorful accessories such as a colorful kitchen towel.

Add a Colorful Kitchen Rug: Instead of opting for a rubber mat in a plain neatural color, consider looking for one in a bright hue or a fun print. You can place it right next to your sink. Hopefully it makes doing the dishes a more pleasant experience (or maybe that would be the case if they washed themselves!)

Add Fresh Flowers or Fresh Herbs: Next time you go to the supermarket pick-up some fresh flowers for the kitchen. They help to instantley brighten up the space. You can also plant some fresh herb and place them by your window sill (if you have one). It will leave your kitchen smelling delicious too.

Add Some Color to the Walls: Adding color to the walls is always an easy way to brighten up any room. If you're color shy, try painting only one wall. Stickable Backsplashes: If you want to add some life to your backsplash, but don't have the budget, you can try looking for stickable backplashes. You simply peel and stick. You can find them at HomeDepot for as little as $7 bucks!

Do you have any tips to brighten up your kitchen? Here are a few of my picks you might enjoy.

Rug, Zara Home, $17
Ikat Bowl, West Elm, $8
