Reflection of the Day

Hello lovelies! How are you?
I would like to share something that I read this morning in a little pocket book that I intend to carry with me everyday to find some words of wisdom when I feel troubled (which happens often)
I have decided to try harder to surround myself with happy thoughts and to stop listening to Adele's last CD because as much as I like her, it makes me very sad to hear her lyrics.
Anyway, I think that we all will enjoy this:

"Looking for lasting happiness outside yourself is meaningless. It is like expecting to become fit by watching other people exercise"
                                                                      -Taro Gold

Have a happy day and remember to stay present in the way that makes you more happy and that makes you feel true to yourself.

Hasta pronto

Nail Polish for the weekend

Hello Lovelies!
I am so happy that tomorrow I am off from work. I need more hours during the day to do everything that I have to do and to sleep at least seven hours every night. Anyway, I am planning on sleeping in tomorrow and to have a nice afternoon with my Maluquito.
Now, jumping to another subject, I have been suffering from very weak, peeling nails for a very long time. I found a very nice product from Sally Hansen that really works. I will talked about it in a later post. Since I have healthy finger nails again, I have been obsessed with nail polishes. My mom is a nail polish junky and I like the bold colors that she is wearing lately. I went to American Apparel the other day and I found these three nail polishes:

I didn't go for the fluorescent colors, (baby steps here) but I picked this Passport Blue, which I love! It is similar to the blue color from the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure collection.
I also got these NYC nail polishes at Duane Reade for $1.50 each. Definitely a bargain and I was surprised to see how well they look with just two coats.
This Flat Iron Green, came out to look more of a gray shade than green, but I still love it and it lasted a week with out chipping.
I will suggest to give this NYC nail polishes a try and don't get mislead because of their price. They are actually great quality for a low price.

I wish all of you a nice Veteran's Day!

Hasta pronto!

The Right Foundation

Hello Lovelies! How are you?
In the process of wanting to have a flawless looking skin, we all go on the quest to find the right foundation, the one that matches our skin tone, the one with staying power, the one that controls oil, the one that minimize the appearence of pores, the one with the right coverage, and etc..... Since I started to wear make-up, I had never found the right foundation for my skin type, until now.
Revlon Colorstay foundation is  the perfect foundation for me. It helps me to control my oily T-zone, it has good coverage and it is long wearing.
It is very important to chose the right foundation for your skin type, so this make-up foundation comes in two presentations: Normal/ Dry or Combination/Oily, comes in different shades and it is inexpensive (around $12.00 at drugstores).
I prefer liquid foundations because I have combination skin an the application is easier. I have noticed though, that Revlon Colorstay blends better using my fingers than a foundation brush, but that is just my preference. I have spent a lot of money on foundations that were not so great or that never did their job and finally, my search is over!
What is your favorite foundation?

Hasta Pronto!

Floral by Gucci

Flora by Gucci
Hello Lovelies!
Have you tried Flora by Gucci? I love, love this fragrance! I highly recommended for those of you who, well; like floral notes. It is not overpowering (but, remember: less is more) and it has a touch of elegance and history behind its creation. As said on self.com "this scent has a "feisty kick" that just may "put a pep in your step"" and I couldn't agree more with them.
I don't know you, but I feel that when the temperatures dropped down, the aroma of the fragrances last longer. This will be a good addition to your perfume collection.
What is your current favorite fragrance? I would love to know!

Hasta pronto!


Hola mis queridas!
Han probado Flora de Gucci?Adoro esta fragancia! Se las recomiendo a todos ustedes que les gustan las esencias florales. Es una fragancia que no es escandalosa (pero recuerden: menos es mas) y tiene un toque de elegancia e historia detras de su creacion. No se usteds, pero siento que cuando las temperaturas bajan, el aroma de las fragancias dura más tiempo. Esta podria ser una buena adicion a su coleccion de perfumes.
Me gustaría saber cúal es su fragancia favorita?

Bye, bye!
