Fall Outfit X Leather

Lately all I see is bloggers who are in love with fall and I have to admit it's my fav season of them all. Finally, it's here! The weather right now is the perfect mix of summer / fall weather. You start your day off all layered up and shedding a few pieces throughout the day as it warms up. 
Here is my first fall outfit and it's probably one of my favs because it's a classic ripped boyfriend jeans with some converse, a hoodie and a leather Moto jacket. What's more In than leather jackets? 
This week seems to have had a slow start. It's been raining and I haven't gotten the chance to get out and shoot some outfits. So I have my fingers crossed to get some things done this week. Oh and I have to get M's passport done. Tomorrow will be my third time back to the passport office in a week. I kept forgetting signatures and then pictures were expired. Exactly the reason why I dislike dealing with this paperwork stuff. But it'll all be worth it so we can take on our first family vacation to Mexico. 
In my next post I am going to share some holiday outfit ideas. Leave me your fav online shops below! xo, A

Shopping Trips

Hi Sunshine,
Today I went shopping w/ my girl after a much needed trip to the gym. I'm so sore now. It was leg day so you can imagine! 
So, like I said we headed to the mall after and I finally found the bag I have had my eyes on. I usually don't shop much at the mall. I find it so overpriced and being online so much I just always find better deals there. I decided to snap some pix for you! I love how simple it is with the gold hardware. It'll work perfectly with anything in wearing. Basically, you'll always find me wearing black. What do you think of it? Comment below so I can respond!
Now going to clean and put my extensions back in. This hair is a mess. Lol :) 
Hugs, xo A

DIY Birthday in a Box

Today is my mommy's birthday and she lives far away from me so I thought I would send her a 'Birthday in a Box' since I can't be there to celebrate with her. She means everything to me and I am so grateful to have her in my life. She is my rock and my best friend. I have been blessed with a wonderful woman as my mother and she is all around such an amazing person. 
I got the idea from Pinterest as I was browsing some birthday gift ideas. I thought it was so unique and so fitting. 
Super easy to recreate, you can pack any party supplies you might like and if you make it colour coordinated then it will look even more special, I think. She had mentioned before that she had always wanted the Chanel no.5 perfume so I thought it's perfect to ship to her accompanied by a celebratory Palm Bay drink. Have you tried these before? They are so yummy ;) 
I hope you guys like these kind of blog posts. Next one will be a fall outfit idea.  But it's bed time for me & Happy Birthday Mom! Love you! xo, A

Blue Vibes

Tomorrow is Friday and I couldn't be happier. We are getting our floors replaced in the house and its just such a pain having things not be in their normal spot, if you know what I mean. 
Shot this outfit today and am super happy with how it turned out. 
I got this dress from Winners a while back. Maybe I can find some cute alternatives to link below. 
But for now it's time for bed.

Play Dates

Took my little munchkin out to play some ball. I love spending time with him and watch him interact. As a working mom time just flies by so fast and we really don't realize how little time we actually have to enjoy them growing up. 
Anyways, thought I would snap some pix of a very casual outfit. The sun was setting so the light was pretty. Enjoy your day beauties, xo A

Way Too Tan

In today's blog post I am going to share a new product with you I came across a little while ago. I love trying new things and sharing them with you. I'm going to tell you all about the new Way Too Tan tanning silicone! 
Hearing the words tanning silicone I didn't know quite what to expect but I was very pleased. Basically the product is a Hybrid that works well in addition to outdoor tanning as well as indoor. So no matter which way of tanning you prefer you can use it to enhance your glow. I found it will give your tan the perfect boost. It's perfect if your are going to an event and just need a little extra tan or abut to take photos and want to have the perfect colour. 
The texture of it is very nice which lets it go on so smooth and gentle like silicone. 
It also has some benefits to your skin which are very important. It has potent anti-aging organic antioxidants and grape seed extracts, which are known to help protect and promote a youthful glow and enhances overall skin health. With Tanning comes the risk of wrinkles which it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines. All around a well rounded product. I love how it leaves your skin feeling silky and smooth. The smell reminds me of an indoor lotion but very lightweight. 

So if you're looking to extend your deep tan into the sad fall months then this just might be the right product for you! Get it here

Leave me comments below if you prefer indoor/ outdoor or sunless tanning!?

Thank you to waytootan for providing the product for this blogpost. All opinions are my own.

What I ate Today....

Many of you have requested a "what I ate today" video on my YouTube channel. You ask and I deliver. I will have it uploaded later today! I am having some processing issues as usual.
I like to have a full breakfast and always start my day off with a glass of water. It gives you energy and is great for your system. I also like a sweet breakfast since I am European and it's just how u grew up. 
For lunch I tend to watch how big my portions are especially when it's something not as healthy. Sometimes you just don't have the time to prepare. 
Dinner is the smallest meal of the day and I usually end it with a shake or something light. 
I have been trying the ThinTea and I have more information in the video below. 
The secret lies in the size of your portions and don't forget, snacking is always allowed! 
Going to finish my work day soon. Talk later babes. Hugs xo, Aleida

Tips for a bigger Pout

Lip injections have been top of mind of most teenage girls and the trend doesn't seem to be letting down. 
Kylie Jenner got them at such a young age and I can't lie saying I didn't wish my pout was a little bigger. 
Tumblr pix are the biggest fad and likely you will see pretty girls with long luscious hair, the perfect winged liner and some juicy lips. While lip injections can cost an arm and a leg, and what normal teenager has the money for that? There are other ways you can make your pout stand out. 
Aside from lip liners and highlighting techniques you can use lip enhancement tools that give a semi permanent pout. 
I got to try the MyLipz lip enhancer in my latest YouTube video and if you want to see my results first hand then be sure to watch the video linked below. 
I may add that I think it takes the right size tool to make your lips stand out and maybe some practice. With some suction you can definitely get a juicy lip going for the perfect selfie.

Outfits of the week

Hey loves, 
Just got back from the beach and thought I would put together a week of outfits from my Instagram! 
We had a pretty chill weekend. Spent Saturday getting some work done around the house and taking a nap. Being a mommy can be exhausting lol 
Today we went to the beach and got some nice sun. Just applied some self tanner though to start the week with a fresh tan. xo, Aleida 

Which outfit is your fav?
