This past weekend my Husband and I visited Alba Vineyard in New Jersey to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary (5/25/13). My husband had planned it but we had not decided on a place until last minute. This vineyard was not as far as some of the long island ones and it had great reviews so we decided to give it a try. It turned out to be such a beautiful place and we had such a good time. They offer , tastings, tours and they had this little outside area where you can order freshly made brick oven pizza, drink wine (from their vineyard of course) and they have a live band. The band was great they played so many of my favorite songs, if you follow me on Snap chat you might have seen some snippets from this day. It was definitely great to spend some quality time with the hubby without any interruptions from the kids LOL (shout out to my Tia Joselyn for watching the kids) and I owe it all to my hubby for coming up with such a fun thing to do on our anniversary, I really needed a day like that, thanks Babe!
Now on to my outfit, I unintentionally wore forever21 everything, literally from head to toe. I tried on a few bottoms with this top but these high waisted jeans were the perfect match and they are just so comfy that I knew they would work perfect to walk around at the vineyard. The top Is absolutely gorgeous and so girly. Underneath the lace there is a crop top band and then the lace drapes over that. I love the crop top trend but I don't like showing too much skin, it also depends on where you are going and in this case this style was more appropriate. Another trend that I am loving for this summer is the off the shoulder look. I've seen so many variations of this trend, from dresses, tops and jumpers and I want them all. I seriously have been on the hunt for the prefect off the shoulder dress and when I find it I will be sure to let you all know, but if you see one that you think I should take a look at please let me know, I would love to check it out. I hope you guys like this look, so far it is one of my favorites for this summer, let me know what your favorite summer trends are.

El pasado fin de semana mi marido y yo visitamos Alba Vineyard en Nueva Jersey para celebrar nuestro  segundo aniversario de boda (5.25.13). Mi marido lo había planeado, pero no había decidido en un lugar hasta el último minuto. Este viñedo no esta tan lejos como algunos de los viñeros en Long Island y tenía muy buenas recomendaciones así que decidimos visitar este lugar. Resultó ser un lugar tan hermoso y pasamos un buen tiempo. Ofrecen, degustaciones, tours y tenían una pequeña zona exterior donde se puede pedir una pizza hecha al horno de ladrillo y beber vino (de sus viñedos, por supuesto) y tienen una banda en vivo. La banda era genial tocaron muchas de mis canciones favoritas, si me sigues en Snap Chat podría haber visto algunos videos cortos de este día. Definitivamente fue genial para pasar algún tiempo de calidad con mi marido sin interrupciones de los niños LOL (Un abrazo a mi Tia Joselyn por cuidarme los niños) y le doy mil gracias a mi marido por dar con algo tan divertido para celebrar nuestro aniversario, realmente necesitaba un día como ese, gracias Amor!
Ahora a mi  look, yo sin querer me puse todo Forever21, literalmente, de pies a cabeza. Me trate varias faldas y pantalones con esta blusa, pero estos pantalones jeans de cintura alta fue el que complemento perfecto y son tan cómodos que yo sabía que iba a funcionar perfecto para pasear por la viña. La blusa es absolutamente preciosa y  femenino. Debajo de los encajes hay una banda superior estilo crop top . Me encanta la tendencia crop top, pero no me gusta mostrar demasiada piel, y también  depende de a dónde vaya y en este caso este estilo era más apropiado. Otra tendencia que estoy amando para este verano son los tops que enseñan el hombro. He visto tantas variaciones de esta tendencia, desde vestidos, tops y jumpsuits y los quiero todos. Yo en serio he estado en busca de el vestido prefecto en este estilo, y cuando lo encuentre se los voy a demostrar, pero si encuentras uno y crees que le debería de echar un vistazo  por favor hágamelo saber, me encantaría verlo. Hasta ahora esta tendencia es uno de mis favoritos para este verano, qual es el tuyo?

Mothers Day Again

This is part of a sponsored campaign with P&G and Orgullosa However, all opinions expressed are my own.



Being a mom is the hardest and most rewarding job I will ever have. I never thought that I could love two little human beings so much. The day I became a mother was both the best day  and the scariest day of my life. I all of sudden had this huge responsibility and I kind of had to just learn as I went.  Although to be honest people are not kidding when they say,  a lot of it comes natural and you kind of just know what to do (sometimes) . Constantly thinking if your doing the right thing, being torn between what your doctor says and what your mom, grandma, aunts and uncles say and just wondering if you have made the right choices can be overwhelming but I've learned that those are all part of motherhood and I have come to terms that I will continue to worry for the rest of their lives for one thing or the other  and there is no changing that. My kids are my Orgullo (pride and joy).  They keep me busy, and sometimes they can drive me crazy, but then they do or say something that just melts my heart and a bad day suddenly turns into the most wonderful day ever.
So it is great to have a day where you are reminded that you are doing a good job and that all that you have done is appreciated, it is even nicer when you get to celebrate it twice in one month. In the Dominican Republic we celebrate mothers day on the last Sunday of the month and being a Dominican American my family always celebrated both cultures so we celebrate mothers  day twice. I love embracing both cultures and I love passing that down to my kids the same way my mom passed it down to me. We don't do anything Crazy we just get together with family and celebrate all the moms and it is an excuse to dress up and look pretty.
Being a mom of two I hardly get enough time to get dolled up, but thanks to Covergirl I only need three products to get me ready and looking Easy Breezy and fabulous in no time. My current favorites and must haves are the Colorlicious Lipstick, the Stay Brilliant nail polish and the Lash Blast volume mascara. If you follow me on Instagram you might have already seen the look I created using these amazing products.  The Colorlicious lipsticks come in 36 different shades grouped in four different color families of nudes, pinks, reds and plum. How fabulous is that? you can have a different lipstick color on, one for each day of the month and then some. The Stay Brilliant nail polish comes in 38 different brilliant shades for you to get creative with any design you want and it combines a base coat, high-gloss color and a chip resistant top coat, perfect for the Mami who like me is constantly washing bottles, giving baths and washing hands. Being able to feel good an look good are very important and I think all moms should be able to have a moment to take care of themselves even if that is for one day. I want to wish all Moms a wonderful mothers day, because to me Mothers day should be everyday! and a very special Mothers day to my strong and beautiful Dominican mothers.
Below I will leave you with a very special video that my Daughter and I were a part of. Get your tissues ready because this one is a tear jerker.
