Are you one of those people like me who are incline to fashion and would love to express more of your passion by becoming a fashion or personal style blogger? Let me tell you how it all started for me. I do not know anyone personally who is into fashion, lifestyle or travel blogger so I was hesitant to be one as I know I will be all alone in this journey. I have no one to talk to about it that can relate and can give an insight. But then I kept on seeing these beautiful pictures of @songofstyle @hellofashionblog @rachparcell @lovelypepa and how successful they are blogging and I am truly inspired by them. So I started googling about how to start a blog then sign up on wordpress , so there is no backing out.

So when I was starting out, it was really frustrating because I do not have much resources myself, just relying on goggle pretty much on everything. I have been making a lot of mistakes and it would have been prevented If at first I already have the right resources for me to grow as a blogger. I just wanna give a special thanks to another blogger Mr. Craig Smith of http://thewiseaffiliate.com/ who helped me transfer my files from wordpress.com to my own hosting site without asking for anything in return, just helping another blogger.

To cut the story short, I was already blogging for a year and half and I still feel lost. Then I came across this community of bloggers and see that they uplift and grow with each other. So i joined as I really want to be successful with this and level up my blog. If you have been following me, you’ll be able to tell how my website, my instagram, my pictures and other social media has improved. It is all because I joined the Style Collective Community. Paying $10 a month is so worth it for all the resources I get that helps me to grow as a blogger, meeting new people and getting a lot of help through them as they overflow with great resources coming from Tax experts, IT experts… brand collaboration…

Every experience though I cherish because I learn from them. There are a lot of things to know if you want to be a successful in your passion. So if you are like me who wants to get better with what you do, or just want to make friends in the community sign up here. It is soooo worth it!!

I wanna be able to friends with you too and let’s help each other rise.

Have a lovely day and Thank you for stopping by.

Always Feeling Fresh with My New Beauty Upgrade

Always Feeling Fresh with My New Beauty UpgradeAlways Feeling Fresh with My New Beauty Upgrade

Let me tell you What makes me always feeling fresh. I was so happy to be able to partner with the brand that I have been using and loving everyday. I am so excited to tell you my story why I switched to Dove and why this partnership was a perfect fit. As a physical therapist, I am always on the move at work. As a mom, also active at home and also when I workout.When I am resting, I will sit next to hubby and tell him about my work or workout. He will always tells me my underarm doesn’t smell good. I will always get offended and will say “I put on a deodorant you know! You must be smelling something else” Then he will say, “well… you better change it because it is not working.” You may say he is harsh but he was just trying to help. He will always tells me that instead of other people telling you that let me tell you now because I am just concern about you. (that is love <3)

But then he was telling the truth, I really do smell after work, workouts and mommy duties so I went to the store to get me a new antiperspirant. I have been hearing good things about Dove so I gave it a try. I’m glad I made the right choice switching to Dove. Since then, even though I am sweaty, I never heard any comment that I don’t smell good. This really does the job! And this Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection plus added skincare benefits of Dove ¼ moisturizers and NutriumMoisture for softer, smoother underarms. Another plus for the skin that I like about it.

That being said, Talking about the comfy outfit I wear when I want to get things done. We all want to look good and chic always but that doesn’t mean that can only be achieved by wearing cute blouses and dress. As a mom like me, I run a lot of errands at home like taking my kids to some class, going to the groceries, banks and stuff like that. When I am on the go like that, I wanna be comfy. The easiest way to do it is just by pulling these simply look out of my closet and viola, I am ready for a spin.

Looking for a stylish transition pieces for Spring? I actually found this one at Ross and fell in love as it has a cool style and the material is so soft. This jacket is easy to style as it already looks like a statement piece with its edgy zip front. If it feels winter you use this as it is a jacket to put on top of your top and comes Spring temps you can just wear it as it is. Just like how I am wearing it right now as the temps are just right. You can actually make a sporty look out of this too by pairing it with jogger pants and these sneakers.

A lot of looks can be created with this jacket. It can also be paired with boots of any length with jeans of course. With just this one piece you can already play a lot of future looks to pull out of it. Worth investing on this piece I should say. I would also pair this with blush pinks and it is perfect Spring fling!

What do you think of this jacket? Have a tried wearing one?

Thank you for stopping by and wishing you a fabulous week ahead and advance Happy Valentine’s Day!

Being a mom with a full time day job and a blog on the side. It is really hard to keep up and work out or even go to a gym. It is almost close to impossible at times. But of course I work in the Medical field so I gotta be fit and to also to be a good example to my kids.

So the question I get a lot is How do I stay fit without a gym membership? Honestly, I have my own gym at home but I never really go there and use the equipment. What I do is….

  1. of course I try to eat healthy food as much as I can (this gotta be number one)
  2. As I have been saying before, I have been using the Nike training app and they have all these program you can follow depending on what your goal is. I actually wanna be toned, specially on my mid section.
  3. You have to have a supportive Husband who will actually give you time at least 30 mins to workout and also motivates you. (if you don’t have that… I suggest workout really early or late when the kids are sleep, I use that time to do my blog…)
  4. I use Youtube and follow Ricardo Rodrigues Zumba exercises, it is sooo extreme. I really sweat a lot afterwards.
  5. I use this Zumba workout set . I just do at least one of each each week.

I usually do it at night, all my workout. At least 30 mins and at least 3-4x a week. I just started back again January as I really wanna be toned by Spring. I am looking forward to our up coming trip for Adi’s 7th birthday.

Most of them you already have at home. It is the disciple and staying focus is the hard part. Let’s all be a better us this year.

Happy Hump Day and thank you for stopping by.

If I will be in an office setting and casual wear is allowed. You will definitely see me like this. This is how I will dress for Mondays as it is cool and gives good vibes to start the work week right. Why I am saying this, it is because my regular work clothes are just plain scrubs suit. Total opposite of the one you see here. I should say this is my work clothes as a blogger. Now I am talking!

Let me give you some insights about me. Ever since I was small, I have been dreaming myself walking in beautiful clothes for work and wearing high heels. Maybe because I always see my mom all dressed up for work and she looked amazing. But then growing up I then realize that I want to do something different which is to be a doctor. So I took Physical therapy as a pre med course just in case I will not be able to continue medicine as it is very expensive. So I did become a PT which I also love doing as I still help patients and see most of them get better and get back on their feet. I have no regrets as I really enjoy what I am doing and it is a low stress profession.

So back to this look. For most of the casual look if you really wanna look like you are in business you really just need to add a blazer. Yeah? It is an instant upgrade to your outfit and plus you can never go wrong with a Prada handbag and red sole heels. I am not saying that you have to wear expensive items that is why I added those budget friendly version here, I just love wearing those investment pieces. This is just my #girlboss How about you? What will be your #girlboss look?

Happy Monday and thank you for stopping by, may all of you have a wonderful week ahead!
