How to Add Some Fun Into a Classic Beach Look

Monday, July 25, 2016

There’s nothing wrong with a classic beach look and you can freely rock your bikini and protect your head with a wide-brimmed hat. Classic look, as the name suggests, is always trendy and timeless, but you can spice things up this summer and make your look truly personal and fun. There’s no better time and place than summer at the beach or pool to try out something new.

Wear the jewelry

One can see many pictures online where beach looks are completed with various pieces of jewelry, but the truth is that most of the jewelry shown is just for show, and one couldn’t possibly enter the water while wearing it. So, why not make this trend waterproof? If you opt for plastic or rubber jewelry bits and pieces, you can easily swim and enjoy the refreshing water without taking them off. This way, your beach look will be very fun and colorful.

Head scarf or a hat

Everyone knows how important it is to protect your head while you’re exposed to the sun. While one would argue that the brim of a hat also provides the protection for the eyes, you definitely shouldn’t go out without an effective pair of sunglasses. Therefore, you can focus on protecting your head with a more interesting accessory.
Really long scarves can add a lot of texture to the beach outfit and there are tutorials that explain how to tie your head scarf as well. Colorful scarves with tassels at the end are really popular this season.

Get a crochet or lace dress

While the crochet dress for beach look seems really popular, in the end, not many people bother with getting one. Most people opt for the easiest solutions and simply put on shorts or a maxi dress. There’s nothing wrong with these two garments and they are very trendy as well, but completing your beach look with a crochet dress can be really effective. What’s more, it’s romantic and sexy at the same time.
Also there are summer lace dresses for the beach, made of stretchy fabric that dries easily and is as easy to put on as some other garments. Not many people know this, which is probably the reason why there are still not many crochet and lace looks on the beach.

Interesting swimsuits

Going for a classic bikini is perfectly fine, but in all honesty, it would be a real waste to miss out on the opportunity to rock some of the popular swimsuits designs that fill the stores this season. There are just too many styles to choose from. Tassels, strings, interestingly cut one-piece swimsuits are just few of the many popular styles.
You can get yourself more than one swimsuit on a really affordable swimwear sale, since this is the best time to buy a swimsuit. With more than one choice, you can change up your looks at the beach almost every day.

An effective bag

Everyone loves totes and beach bags, but when it comes down to it, most of us go for the most practical one we got used to, regardless of its design. In order to add a unique personal touch to your beach look, put some effort into finding that one perfect beach bag that will make you stand out among the crowd.
There are so many designs, shapes and materials to choose from, and if you take the trouble to visit a few stores you would definitely be able to find a great accessory and finally replace your old bag that, even though cute, has served its purpose for many beach seasons already.
There’s no better season to step out of your comfort zone or finally change up your looks than summer. Beach looks are especially easy to play with, since you won’t need to deal with too many fashion changes as you would with regular outfits. Therefore, embrace the trends or create your own. You’ll definitely turn some heads that way.

Let's Talk

Sunday, July 17, 2016

I made this blog in effort to share more of myself. Today, I want to focus on what I love about myself, and one thing I love about me is that I am a natural giver. Whether it is something tangible, my time, a helping hand or words of encouragement, I find so much joy in doing for others. In order to become the woman, I want to be; I want to become more selfless. I have always been the type of person to give if I have it to give. 
I will say being a giver has its pro’s and con’s because, some people will take advantage of you. They will take, take, and take as much as they can;. which can be so draining! And then there are those who really appreciate you, and the small things you do. This alone warms my spirit and makes me appreciate genuine people. I won’t ever change. I’ll just choose wisely when it comes to whom I give my time and gifts to. 

P.S. I started this blog in March. I didn't expect to receive so much feedback. Thank you guys soooooo much for showing me love! I REALLY appreciate you. I am doing a giveaway to show you some love :D

New Music??

Thursday, July 14, 2016

 I love MUSIC! It is my refuge. Whenever I am feeling down I either pray, plug in my headphones or both. I do not know where I would be without music. 
Today, I want to share with you a few of my discoveries. I listen to a lot of R&B but I am very open to different genres. If it’s good to my ear, I love it! I like to use Soundcloud to discover new music. Soundcloud is a large audio platform for many artists to share and upload their recordings. You can download the application or go to the official website online to listen to music. Do you have a Soundcloud account? If so, please leave your username below. Also, let me know if you’ve listened to any of the music I posted.

Paint & Sip

Sunday, July 10, 2016

 I have been so anxious and insomniac these last couple of days. The news is so depressing. With so much going on in the world, I kept thinking what could possibly put my mind at ease. For me, art is an instant stress reliever even if the relief is temporary. I am happiest when I am creating.

 I always wanted to go to one of those "Paint & Sip" events. It just seems like a great event to go to with friends or your significant other. I am not a skilled painter by any means but I know I'd enjoy the experience. I thought to myself, hey you can totally do this at home! You have paint and a canvas! I wanted to paint something simple without too many details. I decided to go with a butterfly because of its significance. I incorporated cool colors into my painting because I like dark hues. I made myself a pineapple mimosa and painted away! I am pretty satisfied with my painting. It was fun! I'll try to paint more often. What activities do you enjoy? Have you gone to one of these events? 

P.S. All you need for pineapple mimosa's is sparkling wine or champagne, pineapple juice and pineapple chunks to garnish the rim of your glass. It is so yummy! :D

Below are my some of my favorite butterfly quotes:
 "The wings of transformation are born of patience and struggle."
 "Butterflies can't see their wings. They can't see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that too."
"Just when a caterpillar thought the world was over it became a butterfly."

DIY: Smoothie Prep Bags

Thursday, July 07, 2016

Don’t have time to make breakfast in the morning? Well, I have a solution. In effort to get back in shape, I wanted to make it easy maintaining a low carb diet. Have you noticed that when you do not have time to make breakfast in the morning, you grab anything in sight or order fast food? Well, I do not have that problem anymore. Here’s why! I needed a healthy breakfast and I thought about what would make my life easier. Smoothies! Yup, that’s it! It is a simple and easy way to get all of your nutrients.

Smoothie prepping the night before will save you so much time in the morning. The ingredients is really up to you. I usually use strawberries, bananas, peaches, blueberries, mangoes, nectarines or kiwis in my smoothies. As far as veggies go, I like to use spinach, chard, kale or carrots. I clean and cut all my fruits and veggies then place it in sandwich bags. I make about 4-5 bags each night.

Each morning, I dump the contents of one smoothie prep bag into my Ninja blender. I pour in a liquid of my choice, which may be coconut water or orange juice and let the contents of my bag blend. When I stop the blender, I simply pour my smoothie in a cup and top it with chia seeds.

You can soak the chia seeds in water; it forms into a gel overnight. It thickens your smoothie and aids as appetite suppressant.

 Here is an example of what I used to make the smoothie above.

½ of a Banana
5 Strawberries
½ of Mango
A hand full of Spinach
1 cup of Orange Juice
1 teaspoon of Chia Seeds
