I’m loving my new dress! I wanted to be comfortable while running errands/lunch date with hubby! So, I decided to chic up and wear my new, short-sleeve dress with a light sweater and boots. Cold weather approved combo. Xx


“Allegria”! Come diceva Mike Bongiorno! Ci sei mancato, sei finalmente arrivato. Eccolo qua, se qualcuno non se ne fosse ancora accorto, è arrivato l’inverno. Here we go, winter is here! The temperatures are dropping in South Texas, and it feels nice and cold. That super yummy hot chocolate is back in season. Enjoy this beautiful time, with your family and friends! Xx


I can’t believe there are only a few more days left until Christmas. There is a nice cozy atmosphere in the air. On this part of the country, it’s been been super cold. It reminds me of when I used to live in Virginia. In past few days, I have been indulging in hot cocoa, decaf cappuccino, chocolate and biscotti. I’m sure everyone does that during this time of the year. Okay, I’m planning on eating everything in moderation. But first, let’s go burn some calories with a 5K run. I hope you are smiling today.


Hello friends,
This is my review for November’s glam bag. During the past few weeks, I had the opportunity to check this product out.

Okay, let’s start with the Aloe Soothing Renewal & Aquaringer Treatment Mask. I applied the mask to cleansed skin for 10 to 15 minutes. At the end, I noticed my skin looked brighter, hydrated, and soft. The mask also smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. 4.5 stars out of 5!

Two words: in love. I am talking about the JAPONESQUE Pixelated Finishing Powder. I’m sure I’m not alone. Before I head out to run at the health club, I apply just a light powder. I never leave the house without my make-up. The reason why I love this powder is it quickly hides some imperfections, and it gives my face a beautiful glow. 4.5 stars!

I liked the way the Deluxe Maracuja Oil made my skin feel, but, to be honest, I get the same results with a simple lavender oil. 3.5 stars! Moving on!

I’m not very excited about the Truffle Therapy Eye Cream. Yes, the eye area is very delicate and needs attention, but this cream is a bit too heavy for me. I’m going to give it 2.5 out of 5 stars!

I’m already in love with this mascara. The Balm Cosmetics Mad Lash® goes on very easily. I’m absolutely thrilled with this product. This mascara does a great job with lengthening my lashes, and it is easy to remove. The curved brush gives you extra volume and lift, like KK! 5 out of 5 stars.



Counting down the days! In South Texas, we had a white Christmas back in 2004. I can never forget that day! In many places around the country it is already cold and snowing. Here at home, it has been cold on and off. Let’s be ready, because a cold front is heading in our way, just in time for Christmas.

That’s why I like to dress in layers. I always opt for a short sleeve shirt under a heavy coat. After all, who wants to go out shopping or to a Christmas party and feel super hot because of heavy clothing? If you are planning spend a significant amount of time outdoors, then skip the layers, and stay warm. Enjoy the rest of the day.;)
