Hair Care

Thursday, January 4, 2018

Let's talk about hair care. I have been following the same routine for the past year, and it has worked miracles and restored my hair. If you are interested in trying it out, you will need three simple ingredients that are already in your kitchen:

1) Apple cider vinegar.
2) Baking soda.
3) Coconut oil.

I have been a coconut oil addict for the past couple of years. I use it to remove my make up, to moist my body at the sauna, and as a hair mask.

Every other week, I apply coconut oil on my dry hair, and leave it in for 30 minutes. When it's time to wash off, I mix the shampoo with a cup of apple cider vinegar and three table spoons of baking soda. The apple cider vinegar, and baking soda do a great job getting rid of any build up you might have accumulated due to applying spray or any other hair products.

Is there a routine you follow? Any true and tried DYI recipes?

New Year's Eve

Sunday, January 3, 2016


I hope everyone had a safe and fun New Year's Eve, and that you are as excited as I am about what is in store for you this year! I don't usually make New Year's resolutions, but -here is a list of things I hope to improve, accomplish or simply experience.

Spiritual Goals:
  • Pray and meditate

Family Goals:
  • Go on a family weekend getaways with my entire family
  • Plan more family dinners
Academic Goals:
  • Read a different novel every six weeks
  • Go back to school and finish my masters (4 more classes, YAY!) 
    Financial Goals:

    • Save more
    • Pay for my graduate school classes cash (goodbye school loans)

    Physical Goals:
    • Work out Monday-Thursday
    • Be kinder to myself and delegate more
    • Go bed by 10PM
    • Balance, balance, and balance!

    There you have it! Nothing like sharing for the sake of accountability, right?

    Now it's your turn. What were you up to on New Year's Eve? Did you set any goals? Resolutions? I would love to hear. XO.

    Life Lately

    Saturday, December 26, 2015

    Vest: JCrew
    Top: Gap
    Shoes: Zara (They're on sale now).

    It's been a while since I wrote one these posts.
    Lately, I have been:

    Watching the Office. Steve Carrell is the funniest man on earth, and John Krasinsky is to die for. Yes, John. Kind men are irresistible! 
    Reading By the River Piedra I sat Down and Wept by Pablo Coelho and 1 Kings in the Bible. I am obsessed with the story of Elijah. 

    Eating bacon, bacon, and more bacon. This recovering vegetarian is meeting some meat goals! I have also been addicted to this Alphonso mango ice-cream from the Talenti brand. They sell it at wholefoods. Buy me a pint and I will love you for ever.
    Wearing this Zara scarf. You can check it out on this post. It's super soft and it goes with everything, and it's on sale. You're welcome!

    Looking for furniture for my new place. I have never purchased furniture and have found the process quite fun and stressful.

    Thinking about balance. so. much! I do not believe in new year resolutions. The idea of waiting for the calendar to change to make lifestyle changes seems a little primitive to me. Everyday offers new opportunities to establish new goals and make changes, but with the year coming to an end, I have been finding myself thinking about what worked and what did not work this past year. One of my new year goals is to slow down a bit and live a more balanced life.   
    Planning my February vacation (insert excited). My friend and I are waiting until December 31st to book the trip. We have no idea where we are going even though there are some places we are interested in. The fact that we do not know where we are going yet adds to the excitement. No better way to start the new year than booking a vacation.

    Using this mineral fusion berry glow product. It gives you the softest red for your checks, lips, and eyelids. Did I mention it's gluten free and paraben free? You may order it from Amazon or from wholefoods' beauty section. 

    Loving these Karen Walker sunglasses, must buy them for my vacation.
