I want to apologize for being MIA this week, but we decided to build a walk in closet out of the blue and it  has been a little hectic around here. I seriously ran out of room in my closet a while ago and originally we were going to move my husbands stuff into a wardrobe and he was going to give me his closet, but we quickly realized that his closet just wasn't going to be enough. So now I'm in the middle of creating my dream closet and I am beyond excited. We should be done by the end of this week so click on the blue "JOIN" button at the top left of this page to stay updated with all the latest news on my blog.

Quiero pedir disculpas por estar perdida esta semana, pero hemos decidido construir un vestidor y estamos un poco ocupados por aquí. En serio, he quedado sin espacio en mi closet y en un principio íbamos a mover la ropa de mi esposo a un armario y yo iba a mover mis cosas al closet de el, pero rápidamente nos dimos cuenta de que el armario no iba a ser suficiente . Así que ahora estoy en el medio de la construcción de el closet de mi sueño y estoy más que emocionada. Espero completar este proyecto a finales de esta semana.

Although it is officially not summer, the weather has been showing some signs that summer is right around the corner and this past weekend  was wonderful.  I wore this outfit to run some errands, yes in heels! These are so comfortable I can walk in these all day. I got them last summer during the Zara sale and I actually forgot all about them until this spring when I was looking for something to wear to go to dinner and a movie with two of my fellow blogger friends Natalie from  A Love Affair With Fashion and Daniela from Nany's Klozet when I found them in the back of my closet. Don't you just love finding forgotten items in your closet?

Aunque oficialmente no es verano,  el tiempo ha estado mostrando algunos signos de que el verano está a la vuelta de la esquina y este fin de semana pasado fue maravilloso. Utilice este look para a hacer unos recados, sí en tacones! Estos son tan cómodos que puedo caminaren el por horas. Los conseguí el verano pasado durante la venta de Zara y me olvidé que los tenia hasta esta primavera, cuando yo estaba buscando algo que ponerme para ir a cenar y al cine con dos de mis amigas y Blogueras favoritas  Natalie de A Love Affair with Fashion y Daniela de Nany's Klozet cuando los encontré en el fondo de mi armario. No les encanta encontrar cosas olvidada en tu armario?

Melanoma Awareness

Description of Photo

Now that the warm weather is here, many of us are running out to the beach, pools and parks to tan and get that wonderful summer glow that looks good with everything. I love that look, however, I never forget to wear sunscreen. My daily Moisturizer has SPF in it and when I know I am going to be out in the sun for a long time I apply regular Sunscreen. My go to suncreen is L'Oreal's Sublime Sun advance Sunscreen SPF 50. I found out about it last year and have been using it since. I am telling you ladies it is amazing and it is now even more amazing because L'Oreal Paris is giving $1 for each bottle sold from the Sublime Sun SPF collection to the Melanoma Research Alliance  and they have partnered on a three year grant with MRA for further research to find a cure.

THE FACTS: Below are the latest stats from MRA:
o   Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer
o   1 person dies every hour in the US from melanoma
o   More than 76,000 Americans are diagnosed with Melanoma each year
o   99% of skin cancer patients survive with early detection

So lets protect our skin and do it for a cause with L'Oreal Sublime Sunscreen.


~Español~

Ahora que el buen tiempo está aquí, muchos de nosotros estamos corriendo a la playa, las piscinas y los parques a broncearnos y conseguir el colorsito maravilloso  que se ve bien con todo. Me encanta estar un poco bronceada, sin embargo, nunca me olvido de usar protector solar. Mi crema hidratante diaria tiene SPF y cuando sé que voy a estar  afuera en el sol por mucho tiempo me aplico protector solar. Mi favorito es L'Oreal Sublime Sun Advance Protector SPF 50. Me enteré de este producto el año pasado y lo he estado usando desde entonces. Les digo chicas es increíble y ahora es mucho mas incelible, porque L'Oreal Donará $1 por cada botella vendida de la colección de protectores solares Sublime Sun al Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA) y se ha asociado con MRA proporcionando una generosa subvención durante un periodo de tres años para apoyar investigaciones que encuentren una posible cura.

LOS HECHOS:    Las últimas estadísticas de MRA:
o   De las muchas formas de cáncer de pielel melanoma es sin lugar a  dudas el más peligroso ymortal
o   Cada hora una persona en los Estados Unidos muere a causa de melanoma
o   Más de 76,000 americanos reciben un diagnóstico de melanoma cada
año
o   99% de los pacientes con cáncer de la piel sobreviven si el cáncer es
detectado en una etapa temprana

Asi que vamos a proteger nuestras piel del sol por una buena causa con el protector de sol L'Oreal Sublime Sun.

~The sky looked beautiful on our way back home :)
~El Cielo estuvo perfecto en camino a casa:)

This is what I wore to the Huggies Latino Playdate event this week. I wanted to wear something comfortable and practical since I was going to be walking in the city and chasing after my 3 year old, but I still wanted to look chic.  This Jumpsuit was perfect for this event because it was light airy and easy to move around in.

Esto es lo que me puse al evento Huggies Latino Playdate Huggies . Yo quería llevar algo cómodo y práctico, ya que iba a estar caminando en la ciudad y persiguiendo mi hija de 3 años de edad, pero todavía quería lucir chic. Este mono era perfecto para este evento, por que es liviano y comodo.

Earlier this week my daughter and I were invited to attend a Huggies Latino Playdate event in NYC. We had such a good time and met some amazing mommy bloggers. The location set up was amazingly cute, the kids had so much fun and the mommies all enjoyed delicious lemonade and o'dourves. 
At the event, Huggies unveiled an exclusive preview of Huggies' new parenting webisodes featuring their new spokesperson Zuleyka Rivera (Former Miss Universe 2006 from Puerto rico) and her son Sebastian. It was fun listening to her talk about her experience as a new mom and her experience with the brand. You can view the webisodes on the Huggies facebook page HERE and don't forget to stop by next month because Huggies' will be uploading new webisodes monthly.
My daughter is 3 years old and potty trained however we still use baby wipes in my home. I like to carry wipes with me where ever we go, they are perfect when we are out at birthday parties and she gets cupcake icing all over her face, at the park to clean her hands, and for the always inevitable spills. Huggies Natural Care Wipes with New Triple Clean Layers are just perfect for us. 
During the presentation Zuleyka also shared that she had had just used the wipes to clean the bottom of her dress since it had dragged on the ground and gotten wet in a puddle. For years that has been one of my little fashion secrets. I learned from a really good friend that baby wipes can be used for more than just cleaning baby poo, they are perfect to remove spills and stains from clothing. So mommy or not, I think we all need a container of Huggies' baby wipes in our homes and closets ;) 
Details on my outfit will be in my next post.

XOXO

~Mi debut en Español ~

A principios de esta semana mi hija y yo fuimos invitadas a asistir un evento de Huggies Latino en Nueva York. La pasamos muy bien y conocimos una madres blogueras increíbles. La decoración estuvo perfecto, los niños se divirtieron mucho y las mamás todos disfrutamos de unas deliciosa limonada y o'dourves.
En el evento, Huggies dio a conocer un adelanto exclusivo de la nueva serie de webisodes con  Zuleyka Rivera (ex Miss Universo 2006, de Puerto Rico) y su hijo Sebastián. Fue divertido escuchar su charla sobre su experiencia como una nueva mamá y su experiencia con Huggies. Puede ver los episodios en la página de Facebook Huggies Latino AQUI y no te olvides de pasar por esta pagina de Facebook frecuente porque Huggies subirá nuevos webisodes mensualmente.
Mi hija tiene 3 años y no usa pañales sin embargo seguimos usando toallitas de bebé. Me gusta llevar toallitas húmedas cuando salgo con mi niña, son perfectos cuando estamos en fiestas de cumpleaños y ella ensucia su carita con bizcocho y también en el parque para limpiar sus manos. Toallitas Huggies Natural Care Triple Clean son simplemente perfectas para nosotros.
Durante la presentación Zuleyka también compartió que ella acababa de usar las toallitas para limpiar el ruedo de su vestido, ya que lo había arrastrado en el suelo y mojado en un charco. Durante años esto ha sido uno de mis pequeños secretos de la moda. Una buena Amiga me informo que las toallitas húmedas de bebe pueden utilizarse para algo más que limpiar al bebé, son perfectos para eliminar derrames y manchas en la ropa. Así que mamá o no, creo que todos necesitamos toallitas húmedas Huggies 'en nuestros hogares y armarios ;)
Detalles sobre mi look estará en el proximo post.

This blazer is so light and flowy, and perfect for the weather we've been having here in NJ. I decide to wear all white with this blush pink blazer because I really wanted the blazer to stand out. I also got this for a bargain at T.J.Maxx only $20! I love finding amazing deals and T.J.Maxx never fails, you have to take the time to look around but it is so worth it.

Tribal Print is so trendy right now and I love how this Zara t-shirt looks. It has been on heavy rotation lately, I wore it a little more casual on my road trip to my Bachelorette weekend with some boyfriend jeans and flats, and then again during my trip to DR. This time I paired it with white denim and one of my favorite t-strap heels from DKNY. I got these gorgeous leather sandals for FREE like 6 years ago!!! No you are not seeing things I said FREE. A few years back Loehmanns use to send their insider club members coupons, so when I received a $25 off purchase coupon I decided to go see what I could find.   These beauties were on sale for $23, so with the coupon they should be free but I was still doubtful and thought that it was to good to be true. I walked up to the cash register a bit hesitant, thinking that they were going to tell me there was an error on the price or the coupon but the shoe gods were with me that day and the lady behind the counter confirmed that I indeed was going to get the shoes for free. Needless to say that was the best shoe purchase ever and they turned out to be one of my favorite pairs because they are so comfy and classic.

Do you have a crazy deal story? Please share, I live for these stories and finding a great deal.

I am back although I wish I could go back. I know I said I was going to have lots of pictures from my time away but I was really kidding myself thinking I was going to have time to take outfit pictures while running around taking care of all the last minute wedding details. With that said I didn't take pictures but I will recreate some of the outfits I wore since it actually feels warmer here than in the Dominican Republic.
I've been thinking of making my blog bilingual, but not sure I feel confidant enough to write in spanish. What do you guys think? Si o' no?
