Senorita Verde

Exploring the empty streets of Espanola Way in South Beach, Miami. Loving this super comfortable and fitted green dress. I’m usually one to stick to naturals and black when it comes to dresses. But I find myself reaching for more basic colors, I find basics and solids mean they will have a longer life in my wardrobe. I’ve found Femme Luxe is a great place for basic dresses and pieces, at an affordable price. I’m all about dressing cute and looking like a million bucks, without having to spend it, which is why I also love browsing ShuShop Shoes for affordable and tredy styled heels.

Seeing Red

One thing I’m most excited about is taking out some of my cute new pieces for a night on the town. I’ve recently received this red, one strap dress, which I’m certain is the most perfect date night look! We took it for a little spin down the abandoned streets of Espanola Way and Lincoln Road, in Miami and I’m itching to take it out. I’ve been trying so many new pieces from Femme Luxe and I’m loving all their dresses so far. I’m convinced this is the best place to look for all your date night pieces.

Big shoutout to Jen Tee Photography, aka my bestie, for shooting these amazing photos. Check her out here.

Qua-routine

I know these past couple of months have thrown everyone of their regular routines, but I’ve been using this time to create a new and healthier routine. Meaning more working out, more walks with my dog, eating healthier foods and working on new projects!

My new found hobby during this time has been road biking! My mom has been an avid cyclist, mostly mountain biking, for years now. So I hopped on one of her bikes and have been loving it ever since!

She has this super cute cycle clothing line called MAD Shredders, so I just had to share! Fashion isn’t only for day to day activities, but it can be for exercise too!

Here are a few of my favorite MAD Shredders cycle kit designs!

What’s your Quarantine hobby?

Little Brown Dress

I’ve never been one to sport a brown dress out for the night, I’m typically a little black dress kind of girl, but this Femme Luxe dress has me thinking differently! This material is super comfortable, breathable and stretchy giving it the perfect form fitting shape. Along with the ruched details around the waist, this dress is perfect for giving off the illusion of a more snatch wasit and perfect for a night to hide a food baby. ;P

I paired it with a simple brown heel and dainty jewelry. And can you believe this dress is under $20?! I swear once quarantine is over I will never say no to going out again! Hahaha especially now that I have all of these cute outfits to try out for real!

Let’s Get Checked!

I’ve recently came across this company that offers at home testing kits called Let’s Get Checked. You literally choose the test you would like to take online, order and BOOM it’s sent straight to your front door within the next week.

I stick to a vegetarian diet and wanted to especially test my multi vitamin levels to make sure I’m properly receiving the necessary nutrients and vitamins, but I also wanted to test out the Iron and CRP (for inflammation) tests, just out of pure curiosity. I think this is a great way to keep track and monitor your health, and the process was so quick!

Now I’m not going to lie, taking the test itself is a bit intimidating, as it requires you to take a small blood sample to ship back to headquarters. Although intimidating, it was actually quite easy and simple once I got the hang of it. Once the collection was taken (during the optimal hours suggested on Lets Get Checked) I sent it back, in the ready to go envelope. My results were back within 5 days and I can easily access them online through their portal.

I think this is such a great way for people to get a quick test done without having to spend the time and extra money to go to the doctor. Especially during times where we are all trying to maintain our health, its important to know what’s going on inside and Let’s Get Checked helped me to do that!

I’ll be sure to update you all on my vitamins, as it may be useful for some of those curious about a vegetarian diet.

I Saw a Therapist? (Professional Tips)

Therapy and counseling, are two words I’ve always felt carried a heavy weight. I have had the opinion that you must have a problem if you are seeking therapy and counseling. But after hearing a lot of my closest friends being fans of therapy, I started to change my perspective. After all, it’s not fair to judge something you’ve never tried yourself.

I figured now would be the perfect time to try out my first therapy session. Considering the crazy world we live in, due to the Coronavirus, I have been in my feelings a little more than usual. Thankfully, I’ve made a great routine and have adapted, so I’m feeling much better these last few days. But those first two weeks of quarantine were rough, and I know a lot of you are still going through some rough patches. Whether, you’re stuck at your place alone and are feeling the effects of loneliness, or you’re stuck with your significant other and trying not to rip your hair out, we are all feeling something.

 

I did some research and found Dr. Lisa Paz in Miami, Florida. She’s an individual and couples counseling professional as well as a clinical sex therapist, and I loved everything I saw about her. I browsed her social media and website and could tell she was fun and had a sense of humor, but really knew her stuff. So I set up my first session…

 

I was very nervous at first and thought I would leave the session thinking I was doing everything wrong. And it was the complete opposite! First off, Dr. Lisa made me feel so comfortable and I was surprised at how quickly we were able to get into our session over the phone call (social distancing*.) She made me feel like I could open up and share anything I had on my mind, and she had such an amazing insight into everything, that made me feel confident in her.

 

I had a couple of key things I wanted to discuss with Dr. Lisa that were really, very unique situations. And surprisingly Dr. Lisa understood exactly what I was talking about due to her extent education and experience in the field. This made me feel so much more understood, and by the end of the call I was feeling even better about EVERYTHING!

I can confidently say, I think therapy and counseling are a super great and healthy way to clear your head. Even being able to talk to someone and feel no judgment, no matter what you say, gives you a sense of freedom and lifts a weight off your chest, that you may have not even knew you had. Dr. Lisa Paz gave me an unbiased, professional and no judgment session that could not have gone any better. I think this experience was a great first step and therapy will definitely be a tool for me to always use if I ever start to feel down or unsure about a situation.

During this time of quarantine and social distancing, a lot of us have been working on our physical health, going for longer runs and walks than usual. But it’s even more important to put your mental health as a priority. It’s okay to want to talk to someone and it’s okay to see a counselor.

Thanks to Dr.Lisa Paz for putting together quarantine tips for couples and those alone.

Thanks to Dr. Lisa for sharing these amazing tips to practice. Hope this helps!

Must-Have Pieces

Back at it again with another must-have LBD! I’m telling you, Femme Luxe has to be one of my new go-to sites for affordable and trendy clothing. This beautiful black midi dress ties around the waist, exposed one sleeve, giving it a trendy edge and uniqueness from your standard little black dress. The material is extremely soft and stretchy, creating a flattering silhouette for all body types. I’m just waiting for the day social distancing ends so I can take this piece out for the night!

 

Of course, a little black dress needs a little black heel. If you saw my previous outfit post, you would know one of my good friends created this design with Cecconello Shoes and I’m obsessed. This heel height is perfect for me, and the faux leather is so soft and comfortable for wearing on long nights out.  What’s your favorite place to shop for fun basics?
