Hi guys, I just got back from Paris. It's such an amazing city and I can't wait to share with you my travel guide filled with tips on things to do. It's been a while since I did a 'Grateful Friday' post, so I thought today it only seemed fitting. No matter what we go through, we can always find things to be grateful for. Sometimes I need a little reminder of this myself, especially when grief tries to creep its ugly head. I hope you have a great weekend.

Celebrity makeup artist, Millie Morales, has got to be one of the most talented makeup artists I've had the honor of working with. She has a way of making you feel your absolute prettiest, while accentuating your best features. She's a longtime makeup artist for Univision's morning show, Despierta America and has worked on celebs from Roselyn Sanchez to Jennifer Lopez. She also recently signed on as a spokesperson for Garnier. We recently caught up with her and today she's sharing with us some of the products she swears by. So take note, you'll definitely want to add these to your makeup bag.
What is one of your best tips for achieving an effortless everyday look? My best advice would be to find your go-to look, mine is a messy bun and red lips.
Any tips on how to get a natural glow? Maintain a healthy skin routine by cleansing, moisturizing and using sunscreen daily to protect skin. We can obtain it and upkeep a healthy skin routine by using Garnier’s new SkinActive collection, esa manera obtenemos esa piel divina. Lately, I’ve been loving the new, Garnier Moisture Bomb The Antioxidant Super Moisturizer SPF 30. You can also add a bit of makeup like a natural colored lip gloss and highlight your cheekbone for a natural glow.
The camel coat is a wardrobe staple that you basically can't live without this winter. Not only does it look super chic, but it goes with just about anything. In fact, I think I might even like it better than your classic black coat. I'm heading to Paris in a few weeks and I've been on the hunt for the perfect camel coat. I finally ended up buying the first one and it was a steal for just $149 bucks. If you still haven't added a camel coat to your wardrobe, now it the perfect time to do so since most outerwear is on major sale.
Here are 5 camel coats that are a steal for just under $150!
Where to Buy:
1. Eliza J Long Wool Coat, Nordstrom, $149 (on sale)
A few months back, I was invited on a press trip to check out the beautiful Boca Raton Resort and Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort. It was the perfect weekend getaway, in which I also got to bring along my mom. I always say, you don't need to travel too far to disconnect. The resort is located in Boca Raton (hence the name), which is about an hour drive from Miami and has views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway and Marina. The resort itself is stunning and has a mix of elegance with old world charm.
Side note: For my reality show fans, you might also remember the resort from an episode of E!'s WAGS Miami haha.
The Room: The resort has accommodations in 4 separate buildings. And although the hotel is more than 80 years old, you would never guess from the guest rooms (which have been updated). I love the way my room was decorated, it was simple, yet elegant with a modern touch.
The Bathroom: The bathroom was also beautiful and super clean. It featured both a rain shower head as well a a hand-held one and a soaking tub.
One of my favorite things from the hotel was the architecture and the landscape. It really didn't feel like I was in Florida, but rather somewhere in Europe. You could easily spend most of your afternoon just walking around, soaking it all in or just lounging on a chair.
My mom took advantage of this comfortable little spot.
The Spa:Ah the spa, if there's one thing I love to do while I'm away, it's to get a massage. I absolutely love them. The spa at the resort didn't disappoint. It was actually voted one of the top spas in the country by Condé Nast Traveler (dang!). The highlight of my massage was definitely the ritual bath. It also has a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, shower, plunge pool and hot tub. If you're staying at the resort, I highly recommend you don't leave without visiting the spa.
The Food: The resort has a plethora of yummy restaurants. After our massage we grabbed lunch in the lounge area and it was uh-mazing.
The Verdict: Overall, if you are visiting Boca Raton or perhaps live in South Florida and are looking for a little getaway, you can't go wrong with the Boca Raton Resort and Club.
Perfect For: The resort is perfect for a romantic getaway, girls trip and for sports enthusiasts (did we mention there's an 18-hole golf course!)
