Where Have I Been? Life Change?

March 2017

Hello hello hello!!! It feels like a lifetime since I had actually sat down and type something up for you guys!

I had been a bit MIA but I'm back!

During the pass 5-8 weeks or so I have been super busy and really had my mind set into other things aside from my blog. If you don't know or haven't seen my Instagram post where I mention a major life change well here ya go...I moved houses. The house we moved into belongs to one of my family members and before we moved into it a family had previously rented that house and basically destroyed it. Before we moved in my husband and I decided we needed to fix it up a bit. We still have a lot to do but we believe it looks already way better than before!

Fixing up a house as you all may know takes so much time out of you. Not only do my hubby and I work full time jobs, we are also parents we are responsible for the care of our baby and thats always our number one priority. Now, I want to share with you our process of the house that we have done so far. Even though it is not ours we want to live in a place we love coming home to. What its really great about this is that we are helping our family fix the house meanwhile we are there. Meaning, it is not a stranger who we are fixing this house to it is someone who we know and appreciates the time and effort we are putting into it.

PS: Shoutout to my brother, father, mother and sister in law for helping us along the way! 

Before I go in to the before and after photos here is a little background story...

Our house lacks natural light from our backyard. This is because my family members decided to built a roof in the back which blocks the sunlight from coming in for the most part. That being said we opted to paint our main living area a light grey color to give it the light it was missing.

Along the way I forgot to take some before photos but I will try to show you guys as much as I have!


At Home Depot we decided to pick Ashen Tan as our main living area's walls color.

Living Room in Progress
As you can see the color of the walls used to be a pinkish color.

Upstairs Bathroom's Floor Before
It used to be just cement but now we have added tile flooring to it. Also, the bottom half of this bathroom used to be blue. When I say blue I refer to straight sky blue. LOL.

Master Bedroom 
The walls used to be pinkish like downstairs & we also painted them Ashen Tan
Here you can see the floor was ripped out by yours truly. We used to have carpet.

 Now we have tile flooring


That is all I currently have photos of at the moment BUT I will be doing a lot of DIY's for the house and more remodeling that I will show you. There is some small things we have change such as lighting in the house and small fixtures here and there so stay tune for more of our renovations! 

Until next time y'all!

This month the tweezers came in handy for me. It is a tool I can constantly use. The Temptu primer was also one of my favs this month. I love a good primer and this one was a good one for me!

Dislikes:
Oh God! The Smashbox BB Cream was horrible! My skin color is light/medium but the bb cream was dark orange on my skin tone. I had to mix in my day to day foundation to be able to look decent. This month this product was a total fail for me! Secondly, the lip gloss...I hate lip glosses in general so this product was also a bad one for me. I hate my hair sticking to my lips and thats exactly what happened as soon as I put it on.

Makeup Go-Tos

To be completely honest my "everyday makeup" is really 2-3 times a week makeup BUT I do get ask a lot what products I use. So I decided to finally put up a list of the products I've been using a lot. 

One of the things I do love to do is mix high end products with drug store products. This not only saves you money but you can get really good products from the drug stores! 







Products:
-Hey Honey Good Morning Facial Serum
-E.L.F's Face Primer
-Kat Von D's Lock It Foundation in Light Neutral 48
-NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny 720A
-Tarte Amazonian Blush in Sweet
-IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Translucent Powder
-E.L.F Baked Highlighter 
-NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow Pencil in Expresso 
-Tarte Precision Long wear Liner 
-EM Cosmetics Mascara in Black 
-Too Faced Lipstick in Bachelorette 
-Trust Fund Beauty Liquid Lipstick in K, Bye
-Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray

If you noticed my list doesn't contained any eyeshadows and thats because I really don't have the time to be adding in the extra colors since I am a working mom. You know it takes a good amount of time to blend properly and I simply rather sleep those extra minutes than spend them on my face lol. 

What are your go-to's? Do you use similar or the same products as me? Let me know in the comment section below!

Winter ONE-derland

December 10th, 2016
Time: 2:00PM

On this day we celebrated my daughter's first birthday party with some of our closest friends and family members!

Now, first of all I would like to give the biggest thank you to my Tia Betty and my Tio Alejandro for opening their home to us and allowing us to have Joy's party there. Thank you so much for having us, helping us, and opening your home to us. I cannot show you how grateful I am but from the very very very bottom of my heart thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!

Secondly, thank you to everyone who drove from San Diego, Oxnard, and Camarillo. We know it is not a 15 min drive and not everyone does it. So I would like to extend my thank you to all of you. 

Lastly, now we are a couple of days away from Joy's first official birthday and I cannot believe how fast time is flying by! She was just born wasn't she!? LOL. 

Here are some photos from the party that I would love to share to everyone specially those who weren't able to make it! 
Enjoy!
