And the fact that there is niacin-amide to help brighten and reduce pores automatically makes this foundation my best friend?!!! Its soooo lightweight and feels like you aren’t wearing anything. It comes in 30 shades, I am in shade 54H deep honey. Its medium coverage so its perfect for on the go activities that merit a more no makep makeup look. Its also buildable so if you want a bit more coverage you can totally achieve it. I took it one step further to see if it woukd pass the ultimate test and wore it for a shoot outside in natural lighting and it looks soooo bomb OMG! Gives you such a beautiful and nice glow, perfect for summer out by the pool or beach. It does not move or cake up. The functionality and wearability of this foundation is honestly up their with some of the best foundations I have ever used. Also as always this product is vegan and dermatologist tested.

The best pair of denim shorts for summer: #Ootd

As we start to get ready for warmer weather. Naturally shorts would be on the list of items you want to purchase. With the many different brands, options and cost it can be so difficult tho. So when I find great-looking, high quality shorts that are comfortable and affordable I have to share.

These distressed high waisted denim shorts are sooo good! They fit comfortably have a lil bit of stretch to them and look designer but a fraction of the price. They are currently on sale so thats a bonus! They also feature distressed hem which I really love on any type of denim.

Hat: Amazon

Sweatshirt: old but love This and This

Shorts: NastyGal {wearing M} (If your in between sizes, size up)

Sandals: Kell Parker (code: tiffany15)

Sunglasses: Amazon (comes in a set of 2)

Earrings: The Styled Collection

You can find great inexpensive denim shorts regardless of if you’re a guy or gal. And just like a high end pair, they can last forever if you take care of them. If you haven’t got a go to pair of shorts that you can wear over and over again why not check out these denim short selections Here

Life update: Celebrating 16 years of marriage || Mexico recap

Hi loves! Today is our last day vacationing in Mexico for our 16th wedding anniversary. Yes! You read that correctly, 16 years! And I could not resist writing a post to commemorate it. It was a fantastic adventure visiting Ensenada & Rosaritos beach but now I’m ready to jump back into reality! The internet has been a little slow lately and it also was a little hard to find the time to write. But back to the tropical bliss.

Friday we zip-lined at Las Cañades Campamento and it was sooo fun! They have 5 different bridges to cross to get to the 5 different ziplines, so its a nice little workout. This was hubby and I’s 2nd time zip-lining as the 1st time we did was in Catalina Island. However it was my dolly’s first time and she thought it was so awesome! After that we went to La Bufadora which is a blow hole tourist attraction right on the peninsula of Baja California. Lastly we ate at a restaurant called Habana Banana which was pretty good. Their micheladas were really good but the best part is you have the option to play with a baby jaguar, lion and tiger. You can also play with the adult jaguar and lion as well as hold a monkey and a huge mcCaw. We did the baby jaguar with my daughter and then just hubby and I played with the adult lion and tiger. My daughter did not meet the height requirement to play with the older cubs.

From Ensenada we drove to Rosaritos which is where our villa was. We stayed at Quinta Pacifica beach front villas. Which were pretty nice. The property was beautiful. My only complaint was that they need to do a better job of up-keeping the building. Since it is beach front the mist and weather can kind of destroy the paint and you could definitely tell there was wear and tear. But lil things like that do not bother me so I enjoyed. We checked in, got settled and enjoyed the rest of the day.

Saturday morning my daughter, mom and niece (via facetime) presented our anniversary presents by showing us a video presentation of them saying the sweetest things and singing. You can view the video Here. I literally cried all my makeup off that I had just put on. I dont know what I did to deserve such sweet souls as kids but I am truly thankful. We got dressed, had breakfast and went to ride horses on the beach and played in the pool at the Rosarito Beach Hotel. We love that hotel. You can hang out by the pool and order drinks which are really, really good. Once we finished there it was time to head back to our villa and get ready for our anniversary dinner. My hubby had his mom drive down from tecaté to be with my daughter while we went and had dinner. We ate at a restaurant called Popotla. It was really good and the mixed drinks were great.

Sunday we drove up to the Rosaritos sand dunes and drove ATVs. That was soo much fun. I almost drove off a cliff and then got stuck in the sand LOL. It was my own fault because I was driving 😂 After, we ate at Villa Ortegas inside Puerto Nuevo (Lobster Town). I had the shrimp scampi and lobster plate and it was PHENOMENAL! We almost did not eat there because the restaurant sits right on top of the water and you literally can smell the fish in the ocean. But we were told once you get your food and start eating your nose focuses on the smell of your food and it is true. Its kind if cool actually how your body tunes into and focuses on what you should be smelling in order to eat. So I’m glad we ended up staying. We headed back to our villa and hung out by the pool and jacuzzi for the rest of the day, until it was dinner time where we cooked and watched a movie via screen projector out on our terrace by the beach. It was soo nice!

Today is Monday and our last day. Its 6AM and im sitting out on the terrace writing this blog. We plan on chilling at the Rosaritos beach hotel pool again and hitting up one of our fave taco spots called Tacos El Yaqui before we leave. The tacos are BOMB!!

This trip was super fun and I’m so proud of hubby and I for celebrating 16 years of marriage! Thank you for allowing me to share and I Hope you enjoyed my lil Mexico recap! Hope you all have an amazing week!!

Recent Amazon purchase for beach vacay || + some travel essentials

I know majority of everyone looooves Amazon!! It is literally the best thing since sliced bread LOL. I recently put in an order for my upcoming trip this Friday and found some really good pieces!! I really love the makeup cases because I have had my old ones for over 10 PLUS years and definitely needed some new ones, So I cant wait to use those. I also got the cutest lil passport cover that comes in a few other colors and I am seriously OBSESSED😍 In addition I got a cute bathing suit, some house slippers and…. well you’ll see haha! 👇🏾

Weekend beach tote

This is a beach bag but, Im definitely gonna use it like a carry all type of bag as well

Spaghetti strap cut out dress

I have seen this dress floating around the internets and thought it would be great for the beach. || Runs tts and is very fitted

Wide brim straw hat

I mean why would I NOT get this hat!! Its sooo chic! Im definitely gonna take some cute pics with this.

Fur slippers

I have a few of these slippers already and they are the most comfortable things plus they come in a million colors so you can match anything.

Passport cover

Ahhh!! See how cute this cover is?!!!! Comes in a few other colors as well and has i.d. And cc slots included. It also comes with a mini pen attached inside which is super adorable & handy!

3-piece makeup bag

Like I said I needed some new makeup cases because my current ones are literally falling apart. I am obsessed with the marble design too!

Large travel makeup bag

This one I got because it has a place to put your brushes and I loved the idea of having that included in the case.

Backless swimsuit

How gorgeous is this swimmie?! Its giving me very Audrey Hepburn vibes and if you know me personally I looove Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffanys! (FUN FACT: That is how my mom picked my name😉)

Straw roll up hat

Everyone needs a hat like this for the spring and summer. It will instantly dress up any outfit and make it causal-chic!

Distressed dad hat

I love a good hat on an actual travel day. 9/10 you will see a hat included in any travel or airport outfit! Its so much easier to throw a hat on when you have an early flight or need to get on the road early. And it really makes it look like you tried.

May Sephora faves || What I’ve been loving

Happy June! We are half way thru the year. That is insane to even say OMG! Nonetheless here we are in another month, so here are last months faves.

1. Hydrating hyaluronic under eye mask

These are soooo good!! I love hyaluronic anything because of its benefits. I tend to dry out under my eyes so these are super moisturizing and they are sparkly so its like a lil party for your eyes😂

2. Bronze eyeshadow palette

Ahhh. I love Natasha Denona! Her products are LEGIT a d she doesn’t disappoint with this palette. I found myself repeatedly wearing the warm browns and oranges because it paired so well with my skin tone. This will definitely be added to My Holy Grail: Makeup Edition

3. Born this way super coverage concealer

Ok can we talk about this concealer! Its so good. It is super full coverage and can me used to bot only conceal but to contour as well. Its also a very hydrating formula so it wont dry you out under your eyes or get cakey. This will be my main concealer for that very reason.

4. Nars lipstick in Belle de jour

I love a natural nude lip look. I saw this on another blogger whose has the same skin tone as me and knew immediately I was going to love it. The formula is very creamy so it isn’t a matte lipstick more so a shiny one and definitely wont leave your lips dry.
