Hey guys.. if you have been following me for some time you know that Zara is the love of my life.. I mean I’ve always loved it but since living in Spain the past two years I have learned to adore it. Why? Well Zara is from Spain. The founder is Spanish and opened his first store in this country. That means that in every corner of Barcelona there is a Zara. Now, comparing Zara in the States to Zara in Spain.. world apart. Zara in Spain is half the price and has a much bigger collection with much nicer things and options. Zara in the States is double the price (since its not made in America) and doesn’t have the same quality goods… its almost as if they send all their crap left over to America. Trust me, I’ve lived through both and have much knowledge lol.
Now that my Zara rant has come to an end lol.. I love to shop affordable clothes. Yes, I splurge on shoes and bags (accessories) but when it comes to clothes I love to get high fashion for low cost and Zara makes this very doable. I have a small section in my closet with my Valentino and Chanel dresses but do I use them the way I do my Zara clothes, absolutely not. I prefer buying affordable so every season I can simply update everything without worrying to much about the thousands of dollars I’ve spent on the clothes.. ya feelz me? lol. Okay so, a few tips.. when buying on a budget.. get neutral colors. Colors that can be paired with more bold accessories and get things that can be worn in a few different ways. Stretch that dollar, thats what its ultimately all about. So, what I do is I buy white tank tops or black, tan, grey… so that way I can wear them with almost every kind of bottom.. and as far as dresses I do pretty much the same. Once those neutral colors are out the way then feel free to buy the colorful shit.
Wow.. this Zara rant came out to too long haha.. am I the only person who gets so into my thoughts and feelings I get side tracked and into a completely different topic lol. Side note and totally unrelated to the topic: its 8am and I’ve had the outside chocolate of 4 ice cream sticks.. ugh!!
okay.. Zara… so today I will film on my youtube Channel Sonya Sed , 3 looks under $100 for summer so tomorrow be sure to look out for that as I will try the clothes on and model my ass around for you to see!! But for now, below is 1 of those dresses that I got and it cost under $30 which is fantastic. This dress is so flowy and airy and can be dressed down with sandals or dressed up with heels and a nice red lip on a night out on town!!! Thats the type of shit you want to go for! 1 dress, two ways to wear it. Day AND Nights.
Hey guys I just uploaded a video on my YouTube channel which is a must watch so you can have a chance at winning my amazing give away. Make sure you subscribe and follow me on Instagram so I know your watching SONYA TUTORIALS
I recently cut my hair about 8inchs shorter… WHAT?!!!? Yeah I legit internally cried on the inside as she was cutting away. I swear hair dressers get a thrill of cutting long ass hair short. I mean… I guess I can kinda relate; being that when I was younger I would only buy barbies with long hair so I could go home and give them a short hair cut myself lol.. I know a few of you reading this did the same exact thing!! Sighhh*
Well now that I have such shorter hair, which I am loving, styling it has become much more different. First obvious difference is how much faster and easier it is.. also loving, but what I love the most right now is the half top knot bun. I tried this look with my long hair but because my hair is so thick it looked horrible. Now that my hair is short it looks so good.
The top knot half way bun I feel is going to be a big hit this summer. I already see the younger celebs doing it and I see it on the runway so I am excited to do this more often. Quick tip on the perfect top knot; when parting the top to make a bun out of it, make sure you leave your side burns hanging down. This gives it a more effortless youthful look as opposed to it looking to put together like you tried. I really think that the more natural look, the look that you didn’t try hard (but you did lol) look is happening this coming season transitioning into summer. The naked makeup, glowing skin, full bushier brows, blush tones and wavy effortless looking hair dues! <– do’s! (Which ever way it’s spelled)!
Let me know what you think of this style and if you have any other recomendations.
Ahhh yes. In fashion sometimes we take risks, sometimes we take pain and sometimes we just tumble and eat sh**…on the bright side of things however I got to wear my new platform shoes!
Typically I love mixing high end items with much more affordable items. I actually do this on a daily basis and it works so nicely that way. Sometimes to much of a brandy outfit just doesn’t look good…almost like you are trying to hard, yah know?! Example: A Gucci logo shirt paired with Gucci jeans with the visible snake stitch and Louboutins and that Louis Vuitton bag you just got. In my opinion that looks like you are trying way to hard. I personally Love making my less expensive clothes look expensive so when a random person says wow I love your top where is it from.. I can share where and how much I go it from, oh and tell them it’s still available so goooo get it!!!
This day I wore basically Zara from head to toe. Jeans and men’s sweater is by Zara as well as my new platform shoes, which I loved. Jacket is by True Religion and bag is Louis Vuitton. I love simple outfits that are comfortable with a hint of statement attached to it. And really I just dress my mood, which most people do.
The day was going great. My fashion photographer (a.k.a my husband) was taking my photo and I’m not sure how but I managed to roll down all those stairs.. get up and trip and fall again. Not only did I trip on my shoes because they are so clumpy but I was also gifted with a blister behind my foot the size of a golf ball… yea I’m still recovering from that blister!!! However, aside from all that fashion is about taking risks and risks sometimes come with pain and suffer or joy and glam. We cant always be winners!!!
Why does everyone say January first is going to be a fresh start for me.. well let’s state the obvious here, it’s because it’s a new year, new you and time to set those new goals into effect. I must admit I too have made such promises and goals to myself… sometimes successful and sometimes far from it, but this year I realized that even if a few months pass and you take action later on in the year, it doesn’t count any less then if it was the first of the month….as long as it progress!! Who’s with me on this!?
I recently took a moment and really thought what I want to accomplish this year and what I truly love doing. What makes you happy!? Do you ever really ask yourself that? And do you have an answer that satisfys you when you say it in your head? Anyway, I see so many bloggers who are married AND have a new born baby (or more) and I thought… well if they can manage with xy&z then I can as well”. Let me elaborate.. I always wanted to blog and vlog and be one with the fashion industries… I left law school because it just didn’t make me happy. I ended up getting married to my best friend and the love of my life and because I am fortunate enough to not have to work I was left with a lot of time on my hands so to speak.
The past couple of months have been very exciting… well actually the past year. I want so bad to share what is to come but that would take the excitement out of things now wouldn’t it. We for some odd reason push harder to achieve a goal when we know there is a sense of suspense behind the outcome of sharing what we have been hiding… right!? Anyway… it feels great to be writing again. Be sure to follow my YouTube channel SonyaTutorials for what’s to come.
If you love honesty, real life shit and fashion… you are on the right bloggers page!
I have never really been a floral type a girl. I typically stay away from crazy prints and go for solids and strips. However, if you haven’t already noticed floral prints are becoming so popular this season. I have a feeling it will bleed into fall as well but done with darker bolder floral prints…. If that is the case I am all in and all over it. I can see a designer such as Dolce & Gabbana make fall clothes like that.
A while ago I got this romper that is full on floral prints. I got it and thought maybe if it’s in my closet I will wear it. Almost 6 months later and I finally decided to remove the tag and wear it. I got it from Zara a while ago and I’m glad I did and sad I didn’t wear it sooner. It’s so girly and cute and I have since picked up a few other Floral pieces.
What are your guys thoughts on it??
Outfit details: ZARA romper, DOLCE & GABBANA Purse, VALENTINO sandals
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
Size of nails that is… lol! I have always wondered if the length of our nails makes a difference in a few things overall. Does it make you feel prettier? Does it make you’re fingers look slimmer? Does it represent our “fashion” and “style” like clothes do? Can we distinguish a character by it?…. I have always wondered and going back and forth with getting nails then removing them (because Im to fuckin lazy to get it fixed) then getting them again, off again, on again… yeah you get the point here lol!
Nails like everything else really do make one of the biggest statements about a person. Lets say for instance you come across a person with dirty finger nails with the black underneath and half the nail polish gone and half hanging on with its dear life (lol)… what do you think of a person when you see that.. Is it really wrong to judge and automatically think damn what a slob! Sometimes I think something as simple as nails can really say a lot about a person BUTTTTTT on the contrary, I also see a lot of girls with beautifully done nails with some cool design but her fashion is a mess.. can we win at everything we do… is it always one or the other?! or can we manage it all!!!
Hmm… Well I for one don’t really give a fuck! I used to.. when I was in LA my nails were done ON THE REGULAR.. and no I don’t mean, I don’t give a fuck as my nails are gross.. because they are always manicured but I have days where my Gel is chipping..and my outfit consists of gym clothes… were all human here right!!
But… I really do think the length makes a difference. It does make you feel sexier and prettier. It does make you’re fingers look slimmer and longer. It does represent you’re fashion and style like clothes do. And by the style we can definitely distinguish a character by it!!!! (Well at least thats what I think) Personally as much as I love long fake nails and get them twice a year, I typically prefer a nice short nail with gel color. To me that is more comfortable and classy!!!! TO EACH THEIR OWN.
Anyway.. this blog was inspired by my current short nails and my few months back long nails.. I was looking at the pictures and contemplating if I should go get nails put on again but then I wrote this… re read it and was like…. naaaaaaaahhhh I love my short nails!!! lol
Have you ever woke up tired and lazy but you manage to turn on some music and apply a full face of makeup and get dressed and just not go anywhere? I can’t be the only one right! Yah one of those days where you make a big ass cup of black coffee with an entire block of dark chocolate and just chill. I was going to go out but.. walking my dogs earlier I nearly froze so I just decided I wasn’t going to do shit! Although however I am going to hit the gym up tonight… once my coffee digests a bit lol!!! So yeah, just laying with a full face of makeup and waiting till I find the energy to leave for the gym….. what a challenge! lol (don’t judge)
At least my makeup is on point.. I actually took my time doing it today. For some reason when I have music playing I get into the application of applying makeup so much more.. who else is like that?!
I have been trying to get back down a few pounds that I have gained since I left Los Angeles but its been so hard for me for some fucking odd reason but this year I am determined… like for real! Hence the fact that I am going to the gym. To be very honest I fucking hate the gym. I love out door activities soooo much more.. like bike riding, hiking, swimming.. etc.. the gym is so boring and nothing but guys checking you out…. lol the struggle! Nevertheless it is necessary to do whatchu gotta do. Hoping tomorrow is a more exciting day….
