Happy December !

 Sweatshirt pants / sports bra / socks headband bags  /cookbook kitchen dining Yoga Mat Armband


I am so excited that December has finally arrived. November was not that good with me. I spent most of my days working hard and also with a terrible cold. I still have an ear infection from the cold and still taking antibiotics which i totally hate them. Other than that I am happy December has finally arrived. I truly am.

I am going to be doing a series of Gift Guide inspiration under 100 Bucks for gals like us that want to save and at the same time give gifts that we know are going to be useful. 

I will be doing a series of Fitness, girly girl, guys gift, home gifts for our mom or a friend, girls that love makeup and Beauty and other thing along the way. The first gift guide will be for our friends or family members that are into fitness or are planning on getting fit as part of their new year resolution. This inspiration have tons of affordable clothing and items that your friend who is into wellness and Fitness will love.

These Items are all under 50 Bucks can you believe that. I can't! I have added from a fun water bottle to a cooking book. This gift guide is perfect for the gal who enjoys working out, eating healthy or is simply trying to start a healthy journey.

When i started my healthy Journey over 2 years ago i didn't know what to buy i bought the wrong pants and sneakers for my specific workout. Thankfully a trainer at the gym i go to told me what was the best workout clothing and sneakers for me.

If you don't know what to get her. Buy a makeup pouch and add face cleaning wipes, hand sanitizer, headband, hair ties, and a gift card from her favorite green juice spot. I am sure she will enjoy it. It's basically like a Fitness care pouch.

Remember to have fun shopping ! and go for the deals !

Hello November !

Minimal Faul look




 November has finally arrived. I feel like October was the longest month ever ! November is going to be super fun and busy full of Family and tons of work. That means more relaxing outfits. Over the weekend I got inspired to make this comfortable outfit. Fall is great to rock your trench coat. It is divine and basically you can dress it up or down.   As most of you know i am all about Comfort and Classy. 

This outfit is perfect for Brunch, a weekend walking around in the city or a movie night. It is also great to take with you while traveling. I added neutral tones and as you can see very comfortable shoes. These are the most comfortable shoes to walk around or if you have to stand for long period of time these are the famous TOD'S Loafers.  You can rock this outfit day and night. I hope it inspires you and it gives you a sense of how to use a trench coat on a regular basis during the Fall. 

Have a great week !

Autumn Work Wear Inspiration

Work outfit





Fall is officially here which that means bright colors are out and fall colors are in.  Leaves are falling, pumpkin pies are in the oven and one of my favorite fruits are in season, APPLES wardrobe has to be full of army green, burgundy, and neutral fun tones. I mean people usually love to wear black and white to work. why not spice it up this Autumn and wear different type of prints and colors that will compliment this season. 

This outfit inspiration that i made is perfect for office attire. You have the button down shirt, the nude pumps, blazer and an amazing bag that fits your planner. I decided to spice it up with this amazing pencil skirt it is just beautiful. J.Crew did great this season as always. I added the basic white collar shirt and the typical fitted blazer that can also work as an everyday jacket. 

To spice up the outfit a bit more i added a burgundy bag. Which BTW I have a major crush on. for the makeup and accessories i left it very neutral again you are going to work not to a fair. But.... If you have a job in that permits you to dress more "fun why not add an extra layer of this dark burgundy color. 

XOXO  Andrea

Favorite Hair Product At The Moment !


Hi Ladies ! I want to talk about my new all time favorite hair product. As most of you may know I have curly hair. Growing up in a Latino household my mom always struggle when she washed my hair. I remember being five years old crying because my mom was going to wash my hair and since i had long curly hair my tangles were eternal. I am not going to lie I would always get a blowout because i just sometimes didn't want to deal with my curly hair.

 As most of you may know i left on vacation the beginning of August, All i could think of was my hair and humidity don't make great sense. The day before leaving I went to my local drugstore on a hunt for the perfect natural hair product. While roaming the hair product aisle THIS Shea Moisture product caught my eye. I decided to give it a try and boy I am IN LOVE with it. 

This curl enhancing treatment has been a life savior. It smells divine, doesn't leave your hair sticky, it makes your hair soft and your curls become bouncier. On the bottom I have added a picture that I took before heading to the airport. I was so happy that my hair looked so well put together. After i arrived my hair didn't blow up like bubble it stayed right where it should be. The month that i spent in Dominican Republic this was my go to product. After coming out of the shower I would dry my hair with a tee shirt then I would apply 1 tablespoon size of the product from roots to end and let it air dry.



                                 
                            
     
                                                                                 

If you have  curly hair this product is for you. I know you will fall in love with it. A apologize for not blogging the past couple of weeks I am in the process of many changes in my life. 

XOXO Andrea

Fall 2014 Must Haves

Fall Must Haves



I AM BACK !!!!! Yes i know it's been a while from the last time i post something on my blog. But as you may know i was on vacation to the Caribbean where i spent over a month stress free. Relaxing and living the life literally would not do anything in the day. Just relax. But I am glad to be back to my city and happy that Fall is almost here. Which that means that I have to start pulling out all of my favorite pieces for the fall. 

This Fall i am being more risky with my makeup and outfits. On this post i have added things which at the moment i am crushing from my favorite drink of the fall the famous PSL
 ( Pumpkin Spice Latte) from Starbucks,  The new collection of Altuzarra for Target and the Givenchy Leather Tote which is screaming BUY ME. 

Another piece that I am crushing is the burgundy Motorcycle jacket it is a statement piece it looks great with every outfit plus it is very Chic and it makes me feel COOL ! the other pieces are great accessories that every girl must have for the fall. Before i forget don't forget to have your room smelling all Autumn. Every year  I buy a couple of my favorite candles for the fall at Bath and Body works they make me feel warm inside plus they smell amazing. 

So Who is happy that Fall Is Finally Here ?

Bedroom Tour....

A couple months ago I wrote about how stress I was due to that I was moving to a new apartment in New York City. I got so happy because my mom and I found an apartment with two great bedrooms. Finally I have a bigger bedroom.  Where i can accommodate more furniture and make it my own space. 
My bedroom Inspiration is neutral tones, clean and bright room. I want my bedroom to be a place where i can relax and feel comfortable with what I have. I moved 3 months ago and I still can't find the furniture i want I have visited so many stores, garage sales and Thrift shops that i decided to give it a break and start my search after I come from vacation.

 I decided to share with you what my bedroom looks like so far. Basically walls painted in my favorite neutral color. Behr Dolphin Fin the nicest, softest grey i have ever seen. My favorite piece of furniture so far in my bedroom is the Upholstered headboard that i got online under 300 Bucks !

I decided to add to my bed white linen bedding and a furry pillow. What you think? I am still planning on adding more pillows and maybe a blanket at the end of the bed. I haven't put anything on my walls yet all of that is on hold until i come back from Vacation. 

If you are planning for a neutral color for your home i suggest checking this color you can find it at your nearest Home Depot

Summer City Chic Style


I have been MIA for the past week in a half I apologize for that. Every time summer comes I get terrible migraines which leave me in bed for days feeling dizzy and not being able to do anything. I have also been getting things ready for my trip to the Dominican Republic which i will be leaving the next month, and i am so excited. 
leaving that to the side a couple days ago i was online looking for a pair of sneakers for my trip. I ended up looking at these cuties They are Nike Air Max.

I remember being in 8th grade and shopping with my mom for the summer when i felt in love with the same pair of sneakers just in the color Red and White. I use to be the cool kid on my block every time i use to put on the sneakers. Now that i see these all of sudden i got the urge to get them.

As many of you may know I only have ONE pair of sneakers and they are only to workout. Other than that I wear flats and heels. I decided to pair a cool outfit for the summer with these sneakers. I think they are so cool. It's perfect for a relax day around the city wearing a cool bag and outfit. I made it super simple but Chic. What you think? would you wear this? Leave a comment on the bottom and let me know. Have a great weekend !

My Organic Food Story

I usually write posts based on Fashion, Makeup and Interior Design. I decided to talk about a delicate topic that most people hear about everyday and that is Organic Food. As some of you may or may not know two years ago i decided to change my eating habits and try to eat clean and healthy as possible. When my mom moved to NYC Twenty five years ago she found herself a bit loss. Coming from the country side of the Dominican Republic raised on a farm where animals grew freely and without any hormones or pesticides. It was a struggle for her to find locally grown products like she was use to eat. She got use to the eating habits of a typical New Yorker not the healthiest or fresh. She always talked about how she use to feel after eating produce from her farm and every time we use to visit our family back in Dominican Republic we would stay in the farm. She always picking her fresh products to prepare her meals.
This use to be one of my father Bulls.

Simple Summer Look

Hi Y'all as summer approach every year i tend to wear less makeup. If i do it's a minimal look. My skin is super sensitive to the sun and literally it is always itching that it's why most of the time i just wear my moisturizer and sunscreen. But.... when i do wear makeup i like to do a minimal summer look.  Yesterday I posted on my Instagram (@classylady) a picture of a simple summer look when i do wear makeup.  I decided to share with you gals the products that i used to create this look.

Fathers Day Gift Guide

Fathers Day Gifts


On Fathers Day i always have mix emotions. Six years ago I lost my dad. It has been a long grieving process. Sometimes i just think he is on a business trip or on vacation. My dad was sweet, strict, caring and very supportive of my decisions. 

On Fathers Day my Dad would spent the weekend with my mom and I. No friends or other family members. My mom would plan the activities and would prepare his favorite Dominican dish which it was  a Sancocho con Arroz which is basically a stew with different kind of meats and vegetables with a side dish of white rice and Avocado. Sooo Yummy I can remember him sitting down and just closing his eyes after the first bite. We would also get him a small present. 

My father was not the biggest shopper and he never asked for nothing special we would just get him something he would usually wear or would be in need of and he would be just fine. He would always say that his best gift on Fathers day was having my mom and I in his life. 

This fathers day my mom would be preparing his favorite dish and also going to the cemetery leaving some flowers. Where ever you are daddy I miss you and love you dearly very much. TE AMO!   

These are some gifts that my father would appreciate and would love dearly. I hope all dads have a Beautiful Fathers Day !

Dreaming Of Portofino Italy

dreaming of PORTOFINO



Now that I am finally settled in my new apartment. I feel like is time to go on a vacation. Vacation i missed that word so much. Maybe not the word but the meaning of it. Vacation means to me disconnected of the world no Internet, phone, or emails. Sipping on a mimosa, relaxing, eating great food, and discovering new places. Currently I dream of Portofino Italy. 

Just in case you didn't know where Portofino is located it is a village located on the Italian riviera it has FOUR beaches. I have been dreaming of visiting Italy since i was in college and after reading the book Eat Pray Love which if you haven't read it i suggest you do. It has been a while without posting something on the blog due to the over whelm of my new apartment. 

Gosh it is so stressful to unpack and decor a new place so many decisions to make. But now i am settled and ready to relax. Well at least. I wish. I still have a couple of months before i go on vacation but mean while i will keep dreaming of Italy and it's amazing food and culture. To all the ladies that are traveling this summer this inspiration post is for you. It includes all of my favorite and must haves for your trip.

Have a nice weekend everyone !

Mothers Day Gifts Ideas

Mothers day gifts

May is Finally here that means that Mothers day is right around the corner. In my home we celebrate Mothers Day twice. The American and Dominican Mothers day. American is at the beginning of May and Dominican is the Last Sunday of the month. I usually divide the gifts that i give my mom. Either one day i just take her out for brunch and the other i give her flowers and a nice present.

 Here i have different ideas of different gifts you can give your mom or grandmother on Mothers Day. I have a variety of options which you can choose. These are my top 9 gifts. Remember to never forget the card. I usually write a hand letter to my mom which she values a lot due that today most people send emails and texts and forget about hand writing a letter.  I am still old school. Plus my mom knows the hard work and dedication i put to the letter i even decorate it using color pencils just like the old days when i was in elementary school.

 I hope these gifts can give you a clue of what you want to give to your loved one. Never forget to say I LOVE YOU to your mom even if you live far from her call her and let her know. Remember everyday is mothers day. They sacrifice their lives to help us become the great person we are today. Their is no gift that i can give my mom other than loving, respecting and cherishing her. She is my true best friend. 

Tell me the one time you scored on the best gift for your mom on Mothers Day. 

XOXO Andrea

Favorite Skin Care Products

Everyday body products

Its been a while since i have talked about my everyday body products. I decided to share with you today my everyday products from toothpaste to baby oil yep you heard it. I change some of my products from time to time but these are the products that i keep buying every month and have learn to love them. 

I usually use a body scrub once a week. I started using a tree hut body scrub about 3 years ago. I saw it at Ulta loved the price and the quality of it. It smells yummy and leaves my skin renewed. The other product i have used for the longest is the Neutrogena Rainbath body wash, its simply one of my favorite. It is a great soap for a bubble bath and i even use it when i shave my legs. It leaves my skin super soft. 

After I take a bath i usually like to use a body oil. I use to think that body oils would leave my body oily and i refuse to use any kind of oil until i started using Almond oil which my mom kept recommending and this Burts Bees Mama Bee body oil. I usually use it right after my bath when my skin is still damp. It is great to moisturize your skin and if you have stretch marks you can take a cotton ball and add some oil to it and apply it directly to your stretch marks. After a couple of weeks you will start seeing a change trust me. A

The other products are my regular day to day favorites such as my Hemp body moisturizer a burts bees foot cream my favorite one is the one that has coconut. It smells great and it leaves my foot soft as a baby. A new product that i bought new this month has been the Arm and Hammer advance white toothpaste and the listerine whitening restoring mouth wash. As an avid coffee and tea drinker my teeth are not the whitest. I decided to try these products. I am literally loving this combination. Even my mom said that my teeth are a bit brighter not that they are too stained but it helps me with my everyday. So what are your favorite products. Also, do you use any of these products if you do leave a comment. 

XOXO

Nude Booties For Spring

Nude booties for Spring



Sorry for being MIA these past weeks on the blog. I am in the mist of moving and boy is it stressful. From deciding what i want to keep to donate or throw away. I packed most of my cothing  up in boxes and my shoes are all sealed up in a shoe box. While looking at all of my shoes i notice that i am missing a pair of nude booties. I have brown and black booties but not nude. Nude booties are perfect for Spring and Summer. I took a break from packing up and decided to check one of my favorite stores in the whole world Shopbop Shoes department. I found these beauties aren't they breath taking. Most are peep toe  which is great because you can rock your pedi. I really have to own a pair of nude booties if not now but by the time i am all movedin in the new apartment. My favorite out of these  is the second in the middle on first row. Its by loeffler Randall i love their designs of booties amd my other favorite is the first of the bottom row by steve madden.

Spring Finally Arrived !

Spring is full of blue



                                                               shirt /  shoes /  handbag, / glasses

Spring Is here ! Today is the first day of Spring. I am so excited, although i do enjoy the Winter and its nice snowy days full of Hot coco and warm fuzzy socks i am so over it. I want my mani and pedi weekends with my friends and i am so ready to let my toes breath some fresh air. I love my Bean boots but their comes a point where you want to stop wearing them. So hasta luego my dear Winter.

I predict that this Spring is going to be full of different tones of the color blue. Have you notice all the sunglasses with the blue shades they are so in. In honor of first day of Spring i decided to make an inspirational outfit. I know i had a long time of not sharing one with you. This outfit is perfect for the girl that enjoys Spring, loves to dress classic traditional but spices up the outfit with a mega cool bag such as this mini phillip lim or the JCrew grey tone  heel sandals. These are perfect for the girl that cant wait to show her toes this Spring and of course she is a mega fashionista yet has her own style.

I really love this outfit i think this light blue is beautiful and a great introduction to Spring all pieces compliment each other none of them over power any item. Lets talk about the Tory Burch Sunnies they are so hot, love the two colors. These are a must !

Lets see how New York City takes Spring this 2014. Although today is the first day. I want to see fresh flowers blooming at my moms balcony and the smell of fresh produce at the Union Square market every saturday morning. Soon i will be posting my Spring musthaves. Stay Tune

Sundays are Made For Zucchini Fritters

Happy Monday y'all. I hope everyone had a great weekend my weekend consisted of family time with my little cousins and Zucchini Fritters or Zucchini Pancakes as my 3 year old cousin says. These are so yummy and easy to make, plus....they are child proof. You know when a 3 year old likes them is because they are yummy. I decided to share with you my recipe. I had an extra zucchini from my zucchini muffins that i made last week and i said to myself i need to use it before it goes bad. I said to myself why not make them just as i make my hashbrowns instead of potatoes i use the Zucchini. Made them under 30 minutes used seasoning that i had in my patry and here they are. I think these will be my new guilty pleasure.

All you need is a large zucchini, grater, 1/4 cup meausure, 1tbsp measuring spoon, a bowl and a non stick pan. After grating the zucchini with the skin on. Place it on paper towel and squeeze the extra water out of the zucchini trust me if you don't do this you will have soggy fritters you don't want that. 

One large zucchini makes 2 cups exactly. Place it on a bowl and add one egg, and your favorite seasoning this is when you make it yor own recipe i had italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I also added 1/2 tsp of baking powder basically it makes them fluffy and 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour. If you have regular flour you can use that also and if you have self risen flour you don't need to add the baking powder then. Add 2 tbs of olive oil to a non stick pan and after is medium high heat take an ice cream scoop or spoon and place it on the pan you might want to spread them a bit. After 3 minutes on medium heat flip them over and wait until it browns well and place it on a paper towel that way it drys the excess oil. Trust me when i say these are addictive ! My family kept asking for more. Hope you enjoy them!

Glam Glow Face Mask Review !

Hi Ya'll first i have to say is pardon my lateness i know i have had a couple of days without blogging but i wanted to make a rview on a product that i purchase a couple months ago and today finally is the day. Excuse my messy bun and 'green tea' face as my mom calls it. A couple months ago  I went to Sephora on a hunt for a new face toner. I have super oily skin and I felt like my old toner wasn't doing the job. While I was at the line about to pay i see a miniature size of GlamGlow face mask.

 This product has been on the top of my list for a long time but the price and not knowing if i would get the same results would stop me from buying it. I said to myself is either now or never. At night before going to bed i usually cleanse my face. After washing my face i decided  to try the mask.

 My first reaction was the strong smell of green tea, second that it had bits of pieces of leaves and third that it was a mud mask. When i applied it, it started burning especially around the nose and cheek area. I have huge pores around that area. After a minute or so the tingling stop the mask dried and face was really tight. After 10 minutes i removed the mask and my first thought was WOW my face is much lighter, my pores had shrink a bit and my face was soft as a baby.

My face was not oily and  the mini white heads i had on my chin had erupted. It has been over 3 months now and i can say i love it i am so happy with the results. I use this mas 1 once a month or if i have something important to do and need my face a bit brighter. My face is super soft, tight and pores are looking great. I am SOLD. After the small jar was empty i decided to buy yhe normal size jar. It's totally worth the money. 


You can find it at your nearest Sephora.

New Favorite Drugstore Products

Happy Friday  ladies ! I wanted to share with you gals my new drugstore products that I have been loving lately. I ordered these online and i simply couldn't wait until they arrived to try them. I got them a two weeks ago and since them i have been using them non stop. 


I am very picky with the products i purchase especially if its for my face. Due to having super sensitive skin. I decided to give it a try to the new Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths. I use Cetaphil products for my face and body and thought these would be great for removing my makeup or after the gym. 

I am in total awe about these wipes. They are soft, don't leave any residue,  it doesn't irritate my skin and is orderless. This products it is just like the cleansers it cleans your face and it leaves it soft.  The other products that i have been very hype about have been the Mabelline Baby skin pore eraser primer. I am a sucker for packaging . I already have the baby lip product and i love it . I said to myself why not try these. At the beggining i was a bit skeptocal due to that i have sensitive combination skin and this product was  clear, oily and it looked like gel. I applied it near my cheeks where my pores are visible i can say i like it is okay i don't think i will be repurchasing the product due to that i dont like the consistency of it. A product that i am happy that i purchase is the St Ives oatmeal scrub + mask. Is great i love it. I use it about 3 times per week especially after my workout. 

It leaves my face clean, without any residue and is great also for those days when you wake up and feel like your skin is acting up or is simply too oily. The other products i purchase were the L'Oreal  true  match concelear is great and very similar to my mac pro one and a color balm. I always carry It on my bag it moisturizes your lips smell great and it gives you that extra touch of glam. 

So what are your favorite drugstore products? Have a nice weekend !

XOXO Andrea

A Colorful NYC Apartment


Yesterday while roaming around the magazine section of my nearest drugstore i spied on a colorful cover of house beautiful. I couldn't believe it was a colorful apartment in NYC. I said to myself this is every girls dream pad. Full of bright blue tones, disco ball lamps  in a kitchen and a bathroom covered in pink. When can i move in! 

 I simply had to buy the magazine and read all the details. The designer of this gorgeous place is Amanda Nisbet " The Color Whisperer" she sure is taking her name really serious. Amanda says that the client's favorite color is blue. She played all the card of the game and gave her the most gorgeous apartment with blue tones. I included some of my favorite photos.... But i suggest going to House Beautiful website to check out the rest of the photos they are breath taking.
