1 Year of Blogging

Top / Jeans / Heels / Earrings / Watch
1 YEAR!!! I seriously can not believe it has already been 1 year since I started blogging! When I finally decided to start a blog I never thought it would be like this. It has brought me so much joy, love, and patience. I began blogging as my way of expressing myself and putting my attention somewhere else when I would get anxiety but it turned into me learning more about myself and what I love. I have never been a good writer nor did I like to write but blogging has allowed me to be creative with my writing and learn to love to it! I am so tremendously thankful for each and every one of you that has followed along with me, whether it was a year ago or just yesterday. I plan on continuing to make my little space on the internet a place where everyone is welcome and where everyone can get genuine advise on life, beauty, and fashion. I can not wait to see where life takes me and where it will take my blog as well. Thank you again and remember to always strive for progress not for perfection!

Hi friends, happy Friday!! Today I wanted to talk to y’all about my skincare routine! It has definitely changed a lot since the last time I shared it on here so I thought I’d let y’all know what my favorite products are and which ones have made the most impact on my skin. First off, for a little background on my skin, I have combination skin with dryness around the outside and oily in the t zone, I also am acne prone and sensitive. Wow, my skin has a lot of issues haha. But anyway here is the rundown on my morning and night routine and what I use each product for!

22 Things About Me + What I’ve learned Over The Years

Hi friends!!! Today is my 22nd birthday and I honestly can’t believe it! I feel like I just turned 16 and although I know I’m still very young, I feel so old haha. So for my birthday I wanted to share more about myself with you so here are 22 things you may and may not know about me!
1. I was born in California, then moved to Maryland when I was 1 1/2 and then moved to Texas and have lived here now for 11 years.
2. My all time favorite show is Gilmore Girls. I have watched it all the way through 9 times.
3. I have major OCD. All of my clothes are color coded, all of my skincare and makeup products have to be in a specific spot or it drives me crazy, if I see a spot of water on the counter I have to clean it, I pretty much have to do all of my daily activities a certain way or it drives me crazy. I also have to color code all of my notes, planner, and pretty much anything I write down! Mark used to make fun of me for this but he now knows that I literally have to do everything my way!
4. My celebrity crush is Christina Aguilera. I think she is absolutely gorgeous and you can not deny that her voice is AMAZING!!!!!! Every since I saw the movie Burlesque I have been in love with her!
5. I have a phobia called Trypophobia. It is the phobia of clusters of circles/holes. One day in high school I had a dream of this and every since then I can’t see clusters of circles. It literally disgusts me!!
6. I went to an all girls high school and I loved it. School was much more enjoyable because we didn’t have to worry about what boys or other people thought because we all wore the same thing and it was great not having to wear makeup!
7. Mark(my fiancé) went to the all boys high school in San Antonio and thats how we met. My all girls school and his all boys school went to each others sporting events and dances and stuff like that.
8. I am technically an only child but I do have a half sister.
9. I originally wanted to be a teacher but then I realized I actually hate children(no offense to all the moms out there). I want children, I actually want 4 or 5, but I just hate that age where they just talk constantly and are super loud. Lol I think its because I never grew up around children. I have a very small family.
10. I started drinking coffee when I was in middle school and have been obsessed ever since. I get headaches if I don’t drink my coffee in the mornings and it has to be at least an hour after I wake up.
11. Charlie, my dachshund, is the absolute love of my life. I never thought I could love a dog so much until I got Charlie. I tell Mark that when Charlie finally goes, I will get another dachshund that looks just like him and name him Charlie II and continue that forever. I am literally obsessed.
12. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I mean I am obsessed. We put up 3 trees in our house and I have always had a tree in my room for as long as I can remember.
13. I have such a big sweet tooth! I eat either chocolate cake, ice cream and hot fudge, or chocolate chip cookies every single day. I literally have cravings if I don’t have my sweets!
14. I am a founding member of my sorority, Alpha Xi Delta, at my university, Texas Tech.
15. I can go days and days without drinking water. The longest I have gone is 5 days without it! I’m just not a water person but I am really trying to be healthier and drink more water this year and I have already seen a huge improvement in my skin!
16. I don’t believe in drinking until you are legally allowed to. I waited until my 21st birthday to have my first taste of alcohol.
17. I am also waiting until marriage, if you know what I mean haha. Mark and I have always wanted to wait until we get married.
18. I am barely 5 feet tall. I was 4’11” up until I was 18 and then I finally grew to 5 feet! I like being short though!
19. I hate my last name because people never know how to say it and they always just say Moreno. My last name is Marrero not Moreno. I can’t wait to get married so I can finally change it! My new last name is going to be Nava.
20. I can understand Spanish but not speak it. Everyone in my family speaks Spanish except for me because my mom never taught me growing up. I understand it because my Grandma speaks Spanish to me.
21. I am Puerto Rican. Both my parents are Puerto Rican and all my grandparents were born in Puerto Rico.
22. I never thought I would have a blog. I always knew I wanted to do something creative but I always thought that would be Youtube. I still want to start a Youtube channel and I eventually will but I never thought I would love blogging as much as I do. I am so thankful for what blogging has done for me and I am especially thankful for all of you for following along in this journey with me and supporting me! I love y’all more then you know!
Wow, that was actually harder then I thought it was going to be. It’s really hard to think about a lot of facts about yourself! But anyway I am now 22 years old and even though I am still young and still have a lot to learn in my life, I have learned a few key things. The first is that we shouldn’t take life too serious, I struggle with overthinking and anxiety because I like to know whats going to happen and where things are going to go and I realized that I can’t live like that forever or I am going to go crazy so I try to be more in the moment and be thankful for what I have right at this second. The second being that some people aren’t meant to stay in your life forever and thats okay. I recently lost a couple really good friends that I thought would always be in my life and I was really down about it for awhile but I realized that if they are meant to be in my life then they will be. I am a firm believer that if you let something go and it comes back then it is meant to be so I am trying to just be positive and look forward to the future. And lastly no dream is impossible. There are so many big goals and dreams that I have for my life and I am determined to make them come true and I believe anyone can do this. You should always strive to do your best and if you work hard then it will eventually pay off.

I hope you learned a little bit more about me and I would love know more about you so leave a comment down below telling me a little something about yourself! I would also love to know where you are from!

Casual Valentines Day Outfit

Sweater / Jeans / Heels / Bag / Necklace / Earrings
Hey friends!
Valentines day is only a couple of weeks away which means that getting a cute outfit is a must, whether you are going out with your husband, boyfriend, first date, or your girlfriends! To be honest, Mark and I never celebrate Valentines day….we have spent 8 valentines days together and have never celebrated haha. We just feel that we don’t need a special day to celebrate and love each other because we can do that everyday. But I totally understand why its fun to get dressed up and have a nice date night/day with your significant other or friends!
So this is my casual-ish valentines day outfit! I love dresses but I can never find one that fits me right or is the right length so I think a nice pair of jeans with a sweater and heels, to make it a little fancier, is the perfect outfit! You can wear this outfit during the day to celebrate or to dinner at night so it is perfect for any time of the day that you have something planned! This would also be a cute outfit to wear to a galentines brunch with your girlfriends! Mark actually bought me these roses for my shoot and I loved them! He knows that flowers are my favorite! I rather get a pretty bouquet of flowers then any other gift. I just think they are so thoughtful and beautiful.
I hope this gives you some inspiration on a casual and classy outfit to wear on valentines day! And I want to know how you celebrate valentines day? Is it extravagant or laid back, let me know in the comments below!!

My Birthday Wishlist

(Click each item to shop it)
Hi everyone! My birthday is only 12 days away and so I wanted to share with you what’s on my birthday wishlist! To be honest I have never really been into my birthday, its kind of just like any other day. I definitely became less and less intrigued with it as I got older but oh well, it doesn’t really bother me ha. Anyway most of these items are for spring and summer because that’s what’s coming up and it tends to get hot shortly after my birthday, especially in San Antonio! As you can see 4 out of 7 items are a blush-ish tone which for some reason I am loving lately! I just think blush pink is such a pretty and bright color. But if you didn’t know, I actually hate pink, I have hated pink ever since I was 10 so I have no idea why all of a sudden I like it! But I mean come on, aren’t these Marc Fisher wedges adorable!!! I have them in 2 other colors and I am obsessed! They are hands down the most comfortable wedge I have ever worn! I also have the pink blanket in grey and it is my fav! It is literally the softest blanket!
I know this post was a little on the shorter side but I just wanted to share some of the recent additions to my wishlist! I hope this gives you some ideas on what to add to your spring wishlist!

The Best Cozy Loungewear

Tank: Nordstrom | Joggers: Forever 21 | Slippers: Steve Madden | Bralette: Nordstrom | Cardigan: Nordstrom 
Lounging around the house is definitely one of my favorite things to do so when I am at home I love to be extremely cozy! If you don’t know, I am such a homebody! My friends can tell you that I won’t leave my house for days because I just love being in the comfort of my own house and relaxing. SO today I rounded up all my favorite lounge wear items! These items are the coziest and cutest items to wear around the house when you want to be super comfortable!

(Click each item to shop it)
A cozy sweater is a must in my mind! Who doesn’t love to come home after a long day and jump into their favorite comfy sweater?! Lounge wear tops like these are great for relaxing in at home and also to run a couple errands in.

(Click each item to shop it)
Joggers are definitely my new favorite piece of clothing! I think they are so comfortable and pretty trendy. They are the perfect pant to run some quick errands in while still looking presentable in public. There have been many times where I have had to go to the grocery store for a few things and didn’t care what I look like and when I get there and finally notice what I’m wearing, it’s some old sweatpants with a messy bun and two different colored socks! So joggers are the perfect thing to wear when you need to run out of the house and still want to be comfortable and stylish!

(Click each item to shop it)
I am the kind of person who’s feet are always cold, even if I’m wearing socks my feet are still freezing so I love to have a comfortable pair of slippers or slides to wear around the house. All of these slippers are so adorable and perfect house shoes!
Lounge wear in my opinion is the best kind of clothing you can have because when you’re relaxing at home you should always have some cozy clothes to get into! I hope this inspires you to keep it cozy and comfortable when you’re at home!

My Favorite Purchases of 2017

2017 was definitely the year where I purchased a lot haha but it was also the year with some of my favorite purchases that I know I will use for years to come. There were so many items that I absolutely loved this year but the ones below are definitely my holy grails!
Fashion:
This romper was definitely my favorite clothing item of 2017. I wore it way too many times lol but it was the perfect romper for the spring and summer. I wore this romper to birthday dinners, to bars, to run errands, and just to go to the supermarket. Blue and white were two staple colors that were really popular during the spring and summer of 2017 so when I found this romper I fell in love!
This thermal was new to me towards the end of 2017 but I absolutely fell in love with it and have not stopped wearing it! I had seen this thermal top everywhere because everyone had it and everyone said it was the best top and now I know it really is!! This Free People top is so comfortable and soft and it goes with so many things. I have worn it with jeans and vans and then I have worn it with joggers and slippers at home. It is just such a comfortable thermal top!
I also have to mention my Gucci belt dupe that I found on Amazon. I am a college student so I can’t afford to buy a real Gucci belt but I have always loved the look so I found this amazing dupe on Amazon. This belt is only $15 and looks so much like the real thing! A fashionista could probably spot the difference but whenever I wear it around my friends they don’t even know the difference. Plus you can’t go wrong with that price!
Shoes:
These wedges were a favorite for everyone in 2017. They are the perfect height, they come in so many different colors and they are literally the most comfortable wedge to walk in! I have walked 3 miles in these wedges and my feet never hurt! These are definitely my favorite purchase out of anything in 2017!
Beauty:
This concealer was definitely the #1 concealer for pretty much everyone I know!! It is pure perfection! It is lightweight but has amazing coverage and it comes in every shade imaginable for every skin tone! I honestly don’t know what to say about it, it is just the best. Every time I use it it just makes my makeup look so much better! I HIGHLY recommend it!!
Skincare:
2017 was definitely the year that I tried tons and tons of different skincare products. I have combination skin, dry everywhere but I get oily in the t zone and I struggle with acne and hyper pigmentation. So I have tried tons of moisturizers to keep my dry skin under control and a ton of different acne and pigment lightening solutions. This moisturizer has definitely been a game changer for me. It makes me skin feel like butter and gives me all the moisture I need.
As for acne, I have gone back and forth with so many spot treatments for pimples but I always come back to this one! It does such a good job at minimizing my pimple and reducing the redness. After just 3 nights of putting the spot treatment on, my pimples are always gone!
And as for my hyper pigmentation and scars, this is definitely my favorite pigment lightener. It is just a serum that you put over your scars or pigment and over time it will lighten it. I have tried many products like this and nothing else has worked. I can notice a difference in my scars and hyper pigmentation within 2 weeks after using the product. It is amazing!!
These products and items are definitely all holy grails for me and I don’t think I could live without them! If you have thought about getting any of these items then I highly recommend all of them!

Have a great weekend!
