OOTD - Winter Dress

Just because it's winter, it doesn't mean we can't wear some cute dresses! One thing that I love the most about the fall/winter fashion is the fact that we can dress with neutral or no colors at all! The florals and the super gloomy colors are note necessary and basic clothes are more appropriate for the cooler months!
But that doesn't mean we can mix some styles and choose a warm dark dress, subtable for winter!
Because I have really fair skin and light hair, if I dress all dark, I will look washed out, so I always pair up black with some lighter color. You can't clearly see from the pictures but I'm wearing a black dress with brown tights and a brown jacket. I choose a light pink top underneath the dress so I don't look dead as I already said before.
The dress has a bow at the waist, so your figure is more defined and lean, giving you a more proportioned body, I think that this dress would look gorgeous on you if you have an hourglass, apple or banana shape because it's more flowy at the bottom, giving you a fuller and more curvy bottom. The leather jacket I got it for my birthday last month and I can't live without it anymore. It's so warm and the dark brown color suits my skin and all the clothes I got to pair with it, plus, it gives me a bad ass look don't you think? ;)
Oh you can't really see from the pictures, but in terms of jewelry I'm only wearing some black glittery hoops that I adore, and thought it would be perfect with this look!

Basically you have to tell 3 things that you think are your "imperfections" and 3 things that you love about yourself, so here it goes:

  1. My hair. It's really thin and straight. I can't do nothing with it... It's natural color it's an awful dirty blonde (I haven't had my natural hair color since I was 16 years old, can you blame me?), plus I don't have that much hair.
  2. My teeth. I have vampire teeth. My canines are visible from a mile away when I smile, it's crazy. 
  3. My fingers. They are so tiny that my goddaughter which is 8 years old, have bigger nails and fingers than me, it's ridiculous!
  1. My nose. It's not tiny and perfect and it has a bump, I love it. It's mine (:
  2. My Body. I have a tall and curvy body. I don't gain weight very easily and I love how balanced my body is, I'm really proud of it.
  3. My eyes. I have big hazel eyes. They change colors all the time... sometimes they are green, others yellow, others a light brown yellowy green thing ahaha I love them, they never lie ;)

Review: Magic Peeling Glove

I am so excited about this product that I don't know where to start!! Let me start by saying that since the first use, this glove changed my skin.I wasn't expecting the great results because I hadn't even heard about this product before and I always exfoliating with sugar scrubs on my body or gel ones on my face.

What it is: "Magic Peeling is made of a cellulose fiber extracted from the plant broom, therefore absolutely natural, it is as soft and light as silk and is also of the same consistency.When this fiber becomes wet it expands and forms fine lines which consents the glove to delicately eliminate cells without scratching or irritating the skin, in fact, it can safely be used on the face. Fine fibers entwined to consent perfect adherence to the skin during massage."

What it promises: The Magic Peeling Glove promises you a perfectly exfolianted skin for your face and body. It says it helps to make moisturizers work better on your skin, helps to eliminate stretch marks, scars, acne scars and dark spots, to perfectly prepare your skin for tanning and shaving(or waxing) and also leave your skin bright and free of imperfections. 

How to use:  1. Stay under a warm shower for 5 minutes so your skin gets soften. Only use water, not soap because it will reduce the exfoliation action.
                           2. Turn off your water, wet and squeeze the glove and start to rub the glove on your wet skin in VERTICAL emotions until you see flakes of skin. Use this at least once a week.

After you use it, clean it with warm water and let it dry for one day. Then you can store it back to it's packaging. This product will last you 60 exfoliations, so let's just say you use it 3 times a week it will last you at least 6 months.

My Experience: Before I use this product I did a research online for reviews, and I didn't find a single bad review, so I was intrigued and knew I had to try this glove. It did everything it promised on me. I wasn't expecting it to be so exfoliating and gentle at the same time. I have sensitive and really fair skin and it didn't hurt like all the other scrubs that I used before and gave me the best results I have ever had. I have been using this once a week for quite some time now and I'll never ever buy another scrub in my life. I'm going to tell you my results in my face and body.

Face: I never had acne when I was a teen, but a year a go I had major break outs on my chin, it was really bad because my whole chin area was full of big infected pimples that wouldn't go away. When they did go away, I had acne scaring. AWFUL acne scaring on my really fair skin. I went to the dermatologist and she prescribe me some harsh medication to treat the scars and the acne. My skin was left really thin and sensitive with all those treatments. I had just a little bit of scaring left that was barely noticeable, but I had huge pores still and some dark spots on my nose. Not anymore. I used this product one time, and I had no huge pores or scaring left on my skin. I still have redness around my nose but I think it's something that will always be there, but no more icky stuff on my face. My skin was smooth and flawless after the shower. And the results lasted me a long time, but because I exfoliate once a week, the flawless skin is always there. I will be brave and post a picture of me without ANY make-up so you can see how it left the skin on my face and judge for yourself.

(The red spot on my nose it's from my glasses ahahah)

Body: I have had stretch marks since I was 13 years old. I have them on my bottom and it goes up to my hips. I have tried every cream on the market and found one that I liked, but after two uses of this glove the zebra things are almost invisible! If you too have them, I say you should try this glove, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
After I left and the shower and started to apply my moisturizer and I was in shock (I haven't still seen the skin on my face at this point) my skin was really smooth and it looked airbrushed! My legs looked perfect!!!  And it made my skin absorb the moisturizers so much faster! Especially the more creamy and heavy ones! I always though I had baby skin, but after this, I know I didn't! Also, you know those red bump some people have on the back of their arms? I had them, now they are gone!
I really wasn't expecting such great results, and I wish people knew more about this fantastic product!If you have really dry skin than you need this product like you need clothes!!! I used to buy so many exfoliating products, and now I have one for my face and body that will last me almost a year!

Where to buy and Pricing:  This product is worth 32 dollars and can be sold online through their site. This is an Italian product but it's available in the US and Europe as well.

If you want to know more about this product you can check out their website or facebook!

Magic Peeling website
This is a product that I will repurchase with my own money. I truly believe in it and wanted to share with you all my wonderful results!I hope you like this new way of doing reviews, I think it's better than reading a whole text!
I hope this was helpful to you, any questions or if you love this glove just like me, feel free to tell me!

Disclaimer: This product was sent to me by the company, that doesn't change my review, as always I will be completely honest about everything. I have received free products before and didn't liked them so I didn't do any review, this product is different because I was really impressed by the results and will be using this forever, so I wanted to share my experience with my readers because I know you will love it as much as I do!

Jeans - How to Find the best fit for your body

Hi ladies! Yesterday I did a post on about body shapes and jeans. I did my research and I gave my personal input to what I think would look best for different body types. I liked the post so much that I thought I would post it here as well!! I know many people still don't know how to find the best jeans for their body and I think that it is something very important.
The JS Collection (Y'all know I love me some Jessica Simpson right?:P) just launched a new denim line so I thought I would give you examples with some jeans from their line. No, I'm not being sponsored by them or anything. I tried their jeans and I loved the fit and their quality... While writing what I thought was best for any shape I realized that she had the perfect pair of jeans for any body type.
Remember that I'm no stylist or have any fashion degree, this is what I think looks best in every figure. I have an Hourglass shape, my mom is a Pear shape, my sister a Banana Shape and my best friend an Apple shape so I know what looks best in them and I know what works for me. 
I’m going to explain the characteristics of every body shape and guide you thorough the best choices of Jeans wear for your body type while showing you what jeans will fit you best on the Jessica Simpson Collection.

The Apple Shape -  Broad shoulders and narrower hips, usually women who have this shape have a big bust, smaller bottom and shapely legs.
With this shape, you want to draw attention to your best features which are your bust and legs. You want to elongate your legs with a Boot Cut jean that will give you a long and lean look. Low and medium rise are the best for this body shape, don't go too high on your waist or it will loose the effect and make your proportions unbalanced. Pockets are a must to an apple shape figure because it will give an illusion of a fuller bottom.
From the JS Collection I choose the Paparazzi Insignia Boot Cut jeans which are low rise with a flattered leg. Because it has a lighter wash through the leg it will accentuate your legs perfectly, giving you more shape and definition. The black detailing on the bottom packets are the cherry on top for a more curvy and balanced look.
The Sunset Boot cut Jeans are a great choice for the apple shape figure as well. They are low rise and because of the cut and wash, they have an elongating effect on the legs. The back pockets are accentuated so your bottom will look bigger, just want you want as an apple shape figure.
Celebrities like Jessica Simpson, Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta-Jones have an Apple shaped figure.

The Banana Shape Shoulders and hips have the same measures with a little waist definition. Flatt bottom and bust and thin legs. It can be called the straight or sports shape.
Flared, skinny and Boot cut jeans are the best for this body shape, because they will hug your bottom adding curves and definition. If you have a small waist, low rise jeans are really flattering, but if you have a more long waist, choose a higher rise. Light jeans or even jeans with a lighter wash that fades along the thighs are the best to make them look fuller. With this shape, any type of bold details and pockets are essential to make you look curvier, so play with it.
I think that if you have this shape skinny jeans are always a must! From the JS Collection I choose the Forever Skinny jeans, with a flattering light wash and simple detailing, perfect for thin or fitted legs. The Ingenue Ankle Zip Skinny jeans are perfect for the banana body type. These gray washed jeans with a lighter wash going through the leg are stylish and bold for a more edgy look. The zipper only adds more detailing to the look which is always great for this shape.
Celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Bosworth and Kate Hudson have a banana shaped figure.


The Hourglass Shape – Bust and hips are almost the same size and waist is narrow. From all the body shapes, this is the more balanced. For this figure, the best jeans are the ones that will draw attention to your waist which is the smallest part of your body, so you want to emphasize it. Boot cut jeans with a stretch denim are perfect for this body shape. Because this figure is already balanced you can go with almost every design of jeans out there, but you have to be careful and always play up your curves, so straight cut jeans are not the best. Also, if you are a bigger hourglass shape don’t go for skinny jeans and low rise jeans it will make you look bigger. If you are more of a slim shape skinny jeans or jeggings are a really good pick.
From the JS Collection I choose the Celebrity pearl hear boot cut jeans, they are low rise and really figure flattering. The detailing on the back pockets are perfect to show up your curves. The darker wash color is best for more fuller figures. The Kiss me Jeggings are just perfect for this body shape, they have a stretch denim that will hug your body where you need the most while showing your beautiful curves. The leg is super skinny so it will look best in a slim hourglass shape.
Celebrities like Scarlett Johanson, Kelly Brook and Kim Kardashian have an hourglass shaped figure.

The Pear Shape Hips measurements are bigger than the bust. Women with this type of body usually have a small bust and narrow shoulders but bigger hips and thighs.
The best jeans for this body type are the ones that will balance the ratio hips/bust so a dark wash boot cut jeans or a flared leg cut would be the best choice. Remember to always choose a dark wash and avoid any detailing on the bottom or the leg, because it will make your bottom and thighs look bigger. Medium rise jeans would be the best for this figure, or a fitted low rise. High rise jeans will be best if you have a bigger tummy because it will conceal it.
I choose the Vintage Flare Jeans from the JS Collection in the darker wash, it has a flattering cut that will shape your legs and they don’t have much detailing which is what you want if you’re this shape. The Hollywood Boot cut jeans are especially good for this body shape because it’s very figure flattering. The dark color it’s a must for any pear shape and the classic boot cut it’s just perfect. Even though it has detailing in the back pockets, they are dark and you can barely see them , that’s why these jeans are so perfect for any pear shape!
Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys have pear shaped figures

So these were my picks for every shape from the JS Collection. As you can see, the boot cut jeans are the most flattering for every shape, and they have a lot to choose from. Other stores that have really nice jeans are Bershka, Zara, H&M, Salsa, Miss Sixty, Replay etc you can always go to your favorite store and buy the ones that fit you best. Remember to always shop with conscience of your body shape. Balanced proportions is always what we are looking for.Work your jeans with a flattering sweater or top… remember to not wear a denim top if your wearing denim jeans and vice versa.

Tell me if you would like more posts like these! I really enjoyed writing this one and finding good jeans for every body type! I hope you're enjoying your weekend ladies! xoxo*

Lush Cosmetics Spree!

My Lush order finally came, and I have to say that I'm really happy with my purchases! But before I start the haul let me introduce Lush to the people who don't know that company (If you are a Lush junkie like me you can skip this).  

Lush Cosmetics is a handmade cosmetic company which sells bath, body, hair and face products. Most of the products are vegan or vegetarian without harsh chemicals. Their packaging is recycled and environmental friendly that's why they are so simple, but the ingredients in the products are the best you can find. They support various causes and ethical campaigns. I've been ordering from Lush for almost two years now and it has became one of my favorite things to buy since the begging.If you want to know more you can check out wiki!

This is not my first post about Lush but I never really written an introduction before, and not everyone knows this company since they not have stores worldwide. Now onto the haul!

 R&B Finishing Hair Moisturizer- "Enjoy some smooth R&B stylings. The tropical butters and candelilla wax will help to moisturise and control frizzy, flyaway hair, but this works to soothe dry scalps, too, with calming oat milk. And once you smell the orange blossom, your hair will well and truly get its groove back." Lush says that this is awesome for black or curly hair. I have blonde straight hair but my hair is really dry at the ends, and this have the best ingredients to make my hair soft and smooth. This products can be used in three ways: As a hair treatment, has a finishing cream or as a scalp treatment. I tried this in a sample before and the smell it's gorgeous and my hair did feel smooth.

The Blonde Solid Shampoo - "Chamomile lightens hair with a natural dye; it wont turn you blonde but it will lift blonde hair, especially in combination with lemon juice and marigold flowers. It gets its name from a famous food critic's name for his wife: the blonde." I have use this shampoo before and it didn't lightened my hair, maybe because my hair is already blonde :P But it did brighten it! It's very drying so I'll have to use a good conditioner with it. To use a solid shampoo you have to rub this into your wet hair and make a lather out of it, this one makes a lot of lather and cleans the hair well, love the chamomile scent. It's being discontinued so if you like it, go stock up!

Sugar Plum Fairy sugar scrub - "Our newest scrubber was inspired by the Tchaikovsky ballet. When Helen was inventing, she thought that plum kernel oil would work a treat because it moisturises the skin and makes it feel silky smooth and adds an almondy scent to the product.We've used Fairtrade British sugar to scrub away rough skin in winter, which will make your body soft as a baby's. The fairy scrub has the same fragrance as the popular Fairy Jasmine and Christmas Carol Bath Ballistics from yesteryear, with a fruity, marzipan twist." This was the only Christmas product that I bought this year. I Love sugar scrub but I thought I would make a pause and try this one. I LOVE the scent! It's so sweet, and the pink angel it's too cute! Can't wait to try it (:

Honey I Washed The Kids Soap - "People who fully intended to walk past a Lush shop find themselves unable to resist its tempting fragrance. They inhale, drool, pick up a big chunk and join the queue for the till. It's hard not to buzz about this one.The irresistible toffee and honey. Once you've sniffed it, you've got to have it. On paper, it's difficult to portray the full effect of this honeycomb and toffee-scented soap." I'm always buying this best seller soap, it has one of the most sweet and wonderful scents that I ever sniffed :P This time it came with a honey come that is too cute! The scent of honey and toffee is the best combination for me and I'm always with this soap in my nose!! The only thing is that I wish it lather more and the scent lingered in my skin...

Rock Star Soap- "The creamy vanilla sweetie one. Here's a soap for all of us who know we ought to be attracted to sophisticated beiges and navy blues, but can't help grabbing everything pink! The Rock Star soap smells just like Creamy Candy Bath, so now you can shower and bathe with our sweet vanilla perfume." This was the first time I bought this soap! I love the sweet vanilla scent, can't wait to try it!

I bought another tin to put my Blonde Shampoo in it, because the shampoo it's so creamy that it can be a mess. I asked for two samples : Angels on Bare Skin and Gorgeous moisturizer. I tried Angels on Bare skin today and my skin looks lovely! It cleaned it so well! I tried Gorgeous too and it was okay. I'll do a review about it once I finish my sample.

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this haul!! Have a great weekend <3*

Review: Pantene Aqua Light

I'm going to be pretty honest. I usually don't like drugstore hair care items. They are full of bad chemicals that dry out my hair and make it more damaged.
Last week, I ran out of shampoo and I didn't have time to order Redken, so I ran out to the drugstore and picked these out... And I have to say that I'm really impressed.
I have tried the Aqua light spray before, and it become one of my HG items, that's why I choose to pick these up! Now into the review...

Pantene Aqua Light Shampoo:  This shampoo dissolves into your hair like water. It has a really creamy lather though and it's not drying. It's light just like they promise but it cleans your hair just right and it doesn't weight it down. I think if you have really thin straight hair just like mine, you'll love this shampoo.

Pantene Aqua Light Conditioner: Just like the shampoo, this conditioner dissolves into your hair making it soft and smooth. You don't need to use a lot of it because the shampoo already makes your hair soft and light, this is just the cherry on top. My hair looks shiny and soft with these two products.

Pantene Aqua Light nutritive Spray: This is my favorite product of this range. I bought this over a month ago on it's won because it had sparkles on it ahaha The best thing about this product is that you can spray it while your hair is dry or wet. I do it both ways, but especially when it's already dry. You just have to shake it and then spray it! This will make your hair much more soft and detangle all your hair without it looking greasy or wet. It has a wonderful light/marine scent that I would love to have it as a perfume :p I have one of these in my room and other always in my bag to spray my hair whenever it feels like a hint of moister.

Overall, I think that if you have thin to normal hair texture this will be wonderful for you. Even if you hair damaged or colored hair this is heaven. My hair feels softer and shiny than ever and I'm really happy with these 3 items. I can tell you if it works for thick or curly hair, but I don't think so, I think you'll need a much more heaver and creamy formula. I hope this was helpful to you, any questions or tips feel free to tell me (:


I wanted to tell you guys that I'm in a new adventure now, my friend Rita invited me to be a "fashion editor" of her Jessica Simpson site As you know, Jessica has a fashion line called The JS Collection and I recreate looks with some clothes and accessories from her line. I already posted twice, if you want to check out those post you can click here and here.

Outfit and Face of the day!

Hi Ladies! I decided to make another "Outfit of the day" post because I really like this look! I have to apologize for my hair and my face because I've been up since 5 a.m and when I took this pictures it was 5 p.m so excuse the tired look :P
I just went to college today so I wore something comfortable yet fun! I recently just discovered the color BLUE ahaha I always thought it would look awful on me, but now blue has become one of my favorite colors to wear!
I bought these Jeggings from in August I think, I never wore Jeggings before so I was a little hesitant.. but now these jeggings has become my favorite pair to wear! They have a dark wash and fit really well! They make my legs look slimmer, and you can see every muscle on them, I love it!!

Cardigan - Stradivarious

Sunglasses -  H&M
Earrings - Bershka
Fragrance - Fancy Love by Jessica Simpson

Foundation - Revlon Photoready in Shell

Like I said before, I was wearing this make-up since 5 a.m and with no touch ups, just on the lips (: I usually don't go for eye shadows, but these are so natural and it seems that all the colors make the green in my eye just POP! The Revlon foundation makes part of my project pan so I've been wearing it a lot. It's my favorite liquid foundation, but I'm trying to only use mineral foundation and tinted moisturizers, so I've been wanting to finish all of my foundations, so I can purchase a mineral one.
I've been wearing this look all week! And everyone seems to compliment me on it, it as you can see, the make-up just stays put without even a primer! 
I hope you liked this post, I'll try to make more of those instead of fashion hauls because I think it's more fun!
