Thrift Shop Finds

Today's weather was beautiful (54º F), we finally have some hope that summer will come someday, somehow, I sound so dramatic! but anyways... since the weather was so good  I went to the thrift store and I got these three sweaters/cardigans, they may look pretty basic but I'm basic guy too so... Obviously I am gonna wear these boys a lot because the colors are neutral and they go with everything.

BTW, while I was walking in the thirft store I was listening to this song and I felt so cool, haha.
Enjoy the song and see you next time.

Beauty Faves of the Month

Hi guys, I missed you so much!! but here I am again :) I want to tell you that every month I will be sharing with you my favorite products, they can be beauty related, food, clothing or just random stuff, random... like me LOL.

My favorite hair product for this month has been the Beyond the Zone Smooth Criminal thermo protect spray; I'm always using my flatiron so I really need the heat protection but I have to admit that sometimes I skip the heat protectant cause a lot of them are greasy, and I don't like the look of oily hair! but with this product I have no excuse cause is not greasy at all and it gives me that matte effect that I really like.

The Olay Regenerist micro-sculpting serum is AMAZING! I'm really glad picked it up and I have to admit that is not that cheap but it's worth it. I think this serum is helping to reduce the size of my huge pores and also my forehead looks a lot smoother (I do not have wrinkles but with the cold "spring" in Chicago I get really flaky skin). 

For moisturizer the winner is... Formula 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free moisturizer . The name of the brand is so weird but I'm weird too, so I like it. I found it at my local supermarket and I just bought it cause my  moisturizer is amazing but it can only be purchased online and obviously I wasn't going to be moisturizer less for a week. It hydrates but it doesn't make my skin shiny or oily, the price was like $5 and it's great for my people with acne.

And last but no least is the Simple Refreshing face wash gel. Oh My! this face wash is so gentle and delicate, and the great thing is that is made for people with sensible skin so that's always a plus+ 
I love the packaging and overall I really like it, it does what it's supposed to do and the price is really affordable. 

I hope this post can help as a guide for your next trip to the drugstore. I love you all, BYE <3

Quinoa Con Leche | Clean Eating Recipe

Inspired by the arroz con leche but looking for a healthier alternative, this is what I came up with.

Quinoa Con Leche (for 1 portion)

1/4 cup of Quinoa
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
Raw almonds

In a pan place the quinoa and almond milk.
Cook using medium to low heat for about 15 minutes or until the quinoa it's soft.
Then sweeten it with stevia or even honey and add some raw almonds on top.

Serve and enjoy.

New Accessories | Bracelet & Rings (clamps)

Just a few more accessories from the hardware store, a bracelet and two rings (originally meant to be clamps).
I'm obsessed with these babies! The price is incredible, I paid for the 3 pieces less than $4 USD (cheaper and nicer than F21 LOL).
I hope you guys get some inspiration from this.
Let me know in the comment section your thoughts on unusual objects used as jewelry.
BTW, in a few days I will be posting an outfit wearing my newest accessories, so keep an eye on that.

DIY Homemade Mascara

You can easily get natural looking dark eyelashes, this is what I did:
I bought a clear mascara and I added just a little bit of regular black mascara (choose  your favorite),
then I mixed it up real good and that's it. Easy, breezy, beautiful.
Curl your lashes and then apply your new DIY tinted mascara, and fool them into thinking you have natural darker eyelashes...

Como Tener Labios Suaves y Tersos | How To Get Soft & Kissable Lips

En invierno los labios se puede volver mas secos de los normal, pero yo tengo algunos consejos y trucos para conseguir unos labios suaves y tersos.

Exfoliar. Para deshacerse de los labios escamosos y labios secos se necesita exfoliar, y una manera fácil de hacerlo es mediante el uso de un cepillo de dientes con un poco de vaselina, exfolia tus labios con un movimiento circular durante unos segundos y luego enjuaga con agua tibia. Otro exfoliante para labios se puede hacer con la mezcla de miel, el azúcar y el aceite de oliva; exfolia tus labios con este exfoliante con movimientos circulares durante unos segundos y luego enjuaga con agua tibia. 

Humectacion. Después de la exfoliación es necesario hidratar para mantener sus labios en perfecta condicion, evitando más descamación. Para hidratar mis labios a mi me encanta usar crema para los ojos en los labios, hidrata como ningún bálsamo para los labios. Me encanta. 

Proteger. Ahora que tiene los labios hidratados es el momento de conseguir un poco de protección solar, uso un protector labial con SPF en ella, pero a veces me víspera aplico mi protector solar regularmente todo sobre mis labios.
Te sugiero que beber mucha agua para hidratar su cuerpo de adentro hacia afuera.
