Hey guys… Oh how I have missed writing. You know when you just lose all inspiration and just have a “fuck it” kind a moment, in my case more like a month lol… Yeah well that’s what happened but I’m back!
If you are anything like me you love a good sale and love to burn calories doing what you love most… SHOP! Okay so I recently signed up for a gym membership but honestly guys… How fuckin boring is the gym 😴 legit running in the same place and smelling the people around you, ya I tried!! Instead this week the stores everywhere have been on Sale. I love my luxury items but when I can get more for my buck and stretch that shit then why not… Who wouldn’t. I know you al went to those sales… Secret of mine….. I stock up on winter clothes during the sales because they are sooooooooo damn cheap! Anyway, I will do a reveal on YouTube of the things I got sometime next week. So back to Cardio… Our best friend!!!?!? Ya right! Cardio made simple… SHOP AND TRY THINGS ON. On average you burn an average of 385 calories – the equivalent of a piece of carrot cake or two large glasses of wine – trudging around stores each week. I mean isn’t that such great news… So who’s going shopping tomorrow??! Any excuse to shop right! RIGHT
OUTFIT DETAILS FOR TODAY
Dress shirt: Bershka, Sandals: Jimmy Choo, Purse: Hermes 35cm Birkin
Till next time
Hey my loves… This tittle is NOT misleading lol… I mean maybe not better but along the same lines of amazing was. What am I talking about, (no it’s not food haha) but the PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS. YAAAAAAAS!! Okay so if you have been following me on social media I am as simple as it gets. I love the effortless simple chic look that looks classy and like you didn’t try very hard.. You know the model look! I have never been the type to follow trends.. Like this whole nude flow and crop tops [fucking fugly] and sports bra with leggings… Like calm down all you kim and Kylie wanna beez’, like I get you are inspired but just cuz you see it one someone else DOES NOT mean it needs to be done! Anyway, I have always loved a good pair of jeans. I own so many designer clothes and shoes and bags but I would trade my Hermes for the perfect pair of jeans! Okay, maybe not my Hermes but I wouldn’t be lying if I said getting an Hermes bag is just as exciting for me as finding the perfect pair of jeans. Like legit that tingle you get out of excitement… Ya that’s what it’s like for me haha. I just fucking can’t stand girls who “try” so hard. Penciling in their brows everyday, contouring, wearing colored hair?!? Like BE YOU, DO YOU! So nothing makes me happier than a simple perfect pair a jeans and a perfect cotton white t shirt. I feel like I am always on the hunt for the perfect white T and jeans lol. I seriously have SOOOO many jeans that sometimes I accidentally buy the same pair a few times over because I forget I already own it.
Point of the story.. Sometimes less effort is better. Dressing up is nice also don’t get me wrong but nothing screams classy chic more than a nice denim and simple shirt with flats and a bag. If you have a nice bag collection and flats or sandals then you are set!!!
My favorite denim brand is Rag and Bone. Their jeans just fit me perfectly cuz my waiste is a 24 and it has enough stretch and enough cotton that it makes the perfect combo. Also, I love Zara jeans (some of them…very picky cuz some look very cheap) and I love that they are so cheap you can wear them a few times and get rid of them!!!
Rag & Bone
These below are my favorite Rag & Bone pair of jeans. I wear these 24/7

Hello guys. First of all wow 23k on Instagram 😍. Would seriously have never thought it. It’s been a crazy journey. I am honestly so blessed to not have to work and just focus all my time on my real passion. 💄👛
Okay so I am currently sittin on a bench under a tree in this beautiful park in Barcelona. I really am trying to take it all in and do as much as I can before I say goodbye to this place. Fashion.Fashion.Fashion. I am soooo ready for summer. Aside from the exhaustion of wearing sneakers everyday and having to bring a jacket is annoying already. I am excited about this summer because I am loving the summer trends that are pushing for this year. What’s popular?! Overalls. Off the shoulder shirts and one piece body suits. This is all exciting because all three of these trends are my favorite things to wear. It’s so cute. Classic. And comfortable. WHO can you complain lol!!!
Exciting summer awaits.
Till then my outfits are bland and simple. Sneakers. Long sleeve. And jeans.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog post. Weight and exercise is on the menu.
Okay are we all seeing the neck choker becoming a huge trend these days. Where these not the biggest deal 10 years ago also!!?! I haven’t decided how I feel about it just yet. I walked into a cool vintage shop in town and found some cool ones that are on the thicker side. I of course tried it on and it looked kinda good. I mean my hair was up so it wasn’t bad. I still don’t know though… I feel like the requirements to pulling these neck chokers off is 1. A long neck. If you have a short neck it just looks like you now have NO neck lol 2. Defined jaw line. So here is where my problem lies. I have baby fat under my chin that loves me so much it always sticks around lol hahaha (made myself laugh..cute) but really…I feel like those who have that defined jaw line can really pull this look off. If you have a supppperrr defined jaw line even on a short neck it will look okay!!! Unfortunately I have neither of these things going for me lol so I haven’t really decided if its something I feel confident enough to wear out. The thought of it tho is fun.
Any ways Outfit Details from yesterday. I kept it really casual because I walk A LOT on the daily. So comfort is my vision these days till I return back to Cali! Also side note: I shipped all my things to LA so my bags, shoes, clothes, dresses… You name it…. It’s in cargo on its way to LA!! I legit have two bags of clothes and I am making it work, to the best of my ability that is. Lol
The black top above was very popular! I got it from Zara and should still be available in stores now.
Okay guys thoughts ☝🏼 ??? How do we feel about these things??? ✍🏼

HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY TO MY BLOG!!! Haha.. okay today is one year since I started blogging. I opened my blog page when I first moved to Spain because I was just so lonely and depressed. I figured if I open a blog it will be a way of keeping busy and taking my mind of the fact that I hated life!!! Deep Shit right there haha!!! But really… I had just packed my bags and left and I knew nothing and no one, so I turned to blogging in hopes of also interacting with people and making friends. I can’t begin to express how far this has come. I have over 20k followers on Instagram and my blog has gotten so many views which is crazy. To think that Blogging would be a form of escape for me is surreal. You guys have been through all my complaining, fashion, glam, food, diets and etc… and for that I FUCKING LOVE YOU ALL.
This year is going to be a crazy year for me and I can’t wait to share it with you guys. I only have 2 months left in Barcelona Spain before relocating. I don’t want to give all the details just yet but soon enough you guys will see!! There are so many exciting things happening and going to happen that my life is taking a complete turn for the better. I seriously can’t believe I have been sitting behind this computer in SPAIN for a whole year writing. I have seriously grown to love Barcelona and am going to miss it.. but I will be back next year for a week or so!!! So in this two months I am going to fully enjoy beautiful Barcelona Spain and can’t wait to leave at the same time… lol.
Anyways.. what I basically and simply wanted to say is THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU ALL. I am so much happier today then I was when I began this and I am so grateful for all the new friends I have made and followers that I have.
I am IN LOVE with my Birkin. It is seriously the perfect size and I have carried it out once already… (haven’t left my house for two days lol). The bag is so light weight and structured so well. I can fit more then I thought in there which is actually surprising. I initially thought when I opened the box that it was going to be a bit small for all the crap I throw in my purse (unnecessary crap that is) but it all fits comfortably AND I have plenty of room left! It is definitely going to be a lifetime bag. The leather is outstanding btw also! I haven’t got a chance to really wear it out someplace where it requires me to get dressed up.. and by dressed up people.. I mean something aside from gym wear haha… so I haven’t been able to really take pictures outdoors with it and my outfit put together. But I have to make a run to Valentino today and if my lazy ass decides to look normal lol then I shall snap some photos.. otherwise.. yet another day will pass and no ootd will be posted. Ugh the weather is so fucking shitty I have like no inspiration or mood to get dressed. Andddddddd on top of it all the fuckin Patriots lost last night and I had a lot of money riding on them.. and they let me AND my husband down!!!! Assholes!!!! Anyways… that info was just a bonus haha! So I took some cute pics today because I wanted a more clear shot of the bag and the color on the inside… Not so sure I mastered the shot from inside BUTTTT as I always say… #thugLife
Yup… I have officially popped my Hermes cherry. My husband by some miracle was able to surprise me and pull something off without my snoopy ass finding out. lol and when I say snoopy I mean FBI status, like nothing goes unnoticed when I am around haha! So on our last trip to Paris while he was on “business” and I was strolling the streets alone..he went and custom ordered the Hermes bag that I have been wanting for ever now. He managed to do this without me finding out which was so cute. I always just wanted the simple black one but he took it a step further and got the inside custom made with Pink Leather… Because Im a black type of girl on the surface and a Pink girl within haha… the Pink is within youuuu! okay, I went out with my girlfriend for breakfast and when I got back home I had a pounding headache and just took a warm shower and laid in bed the rest of the day watching movies. After two movies and a few bottle waters later my lazy ass got up to use the bathroom and go into the kitchen to get a snack… AND THERE IT WAS… my husband standing over a beautiful 30mm Black Hermes bag…. I seriously thought I was dreaming. It even has the horseshoe on it because it was custom made. I don’t know if I was more excited about the bag or about the fact that my husband is the BEST fucking husband in the world!!!!!!!!!
I always wanted the 30mm because the 35mm is big and I have so many bags that are big and always thought that the 30mm was the perfect in-between size..and it is!!! YAAY!!!
P.S don’t mind my Pink house Robe. lol… #thuglife
The tittle says it all. Today I woke up super early.. you know when its cold and you freeze sleeping in a short sleeve so the following night you sleep with a long sleeve and then you’re hot and irritated… like I can’t fucking win! Anways.. point is I couldn’t sleep so I got up and decided I am going to switch my purse for another purse today. I seriously stood in my purse collection and noticed that 95% of my purses are either a different tone of Grey or its Black and the other 5% are Louis Vuitton monogram. SO.. I thought this is a great excuse to go get in some cardio and hunt for the perfect accessory to transition into Spring/Summer! LET ME TELL YOU… I WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL.
I came across the most beautiful blue Celine bag.. and Ive noticed this season for Spring and Summer a lot of blue and denim is coming bag into style. I actually never been into the whole denim bag or shoes and I haven’t become into it thus far lol… but leather blue is mahhhh shitttt!!! This will match with almost everything in my closet that I wear the most during Spring and Summer and it is the perfect size. It was a great buy!!! My first blue bag.
Okay so if you guys have been following my blog you know that I am always on the hunt to lose that extra 5 pounds. The key here for me is to actually keep it off. Ive noticed, although I love the gym… I gain so much muscle weight in my thighs very fast.. and personally I don’t like to be muscly. I used to run track & field and cross country for four years so since then every time I work out where I am running and bicycling I instantly get really muscly. Anyway.. I don’t know if you guys have heard about the Military Diet but lately I have a lot of people recommending that to me for a guaranteed 5 pound lose in three days. The diet is super strict and you have to follow it to a Tee. I really wanted to give it ago.. I even went and got everything for it but I recently went fully vegetarian and the diet consist hot dogs and Tuna which of course can be substituted but I don’t do Tofu so I have been kinda hesitant to try it. Regardless.. I have been trying to eat healthy and be active and drink a lot of water and tea but I can not manage to get down to where I was pre Barcelona!!! lol so yeah story of my fucking life.. I keep you guys posted on if I see any progress on this healthy life style vegetarian (kinda vegan) diet I am on. -I will forever remain vegetarian though-
Aside from that… I can’t wait till summer…… like hi, where are you!! hurry!!! I am in the process of finding a house with my husband and moving in two months to a bigger and better location. I realized in Barcelona a backyard and a pool is such a necessity in the summer heat here. When I move and am settled I will be doing a house and closet tour for you guys.. I get asked to do one pretty much all the time so I have given in and will be doing so!!!
Today I did some peaceful alone time and grabbed some tea and read a very interesting book my mom gave me about the Bahai faith!!! <– If you don’t know what the Bahai religion is.. click –> BAHAI and educate yourselves. Its very interesting.
So It was so cold today I just layered a bunch of shit and hoped it workout out… lol and it did.. of course!!!!
goes a long way. As I have mentioned before my favorite blogger is SomethingNavy. She really inspires me because her style is so similar to mine and she’s not afraid to add colors into her outfits… which these days with all the nudes and creams and pastels going on, is a breath of fresh air. Anyway.. I was reading her blog last night and came across that “pop” of color and I loved it. I took the idea and recreated it to make it my own in my own style. I typically don’t do colored purses unless it is summer or near summer towards the end of spring… but why does fashion have to have restrictions and limitations.. if fashion is a form of expression why do we have to limit ourselves based on seasons and what others are doing… I mean its always nice to be up to date but if something making you “LOVE” the look then change it or add to it to make it UHMAZING! Today I did just that. On top of being inspired, I just thought my outfit was so bland. Considering the gloomy grey weather.. I decided to add a very bright red purse to make my outfit POP. It turns out… I loved it and from the fast response I got on my instagram… it was a hit!!!! Oh… and I feel like nothing goes together better than NAVY & RED!!! YAS! It just works.. yah know!!!!
Don’t be afraid to make you’re outfit fit YOU
