Cupcake Catch-up: Beauty Vlogger Bootcamp Ep. 9

Hey guys!

This weeks episode of BVB was a more relaxed one, Elle and Blair catch-up with the 3 remaining contestants that are fighting to be the winners of the competition. It was nice that they did this with Rachel, Shannice and Giselle. To get to know where the final 3 come from just gives us a better idea of all the things that they have going on, how driven they are and how much we can relate to them in everyday activities. 

In this post, I will talk about what I like to do when my friends and I get together to catch-up on each other's life and to have a little time off from our very busy schedules. I have 3 best friends from school, we have been like sisters all through high school and made the transition smoothly, we are always chatting, even though we can't see each other as often as we would like to. One of them live's in Canada, and the rest of us haven't moved at all. You might think that with them the story is different, but no, we are still pretty busy and don't have  similar schedules to find a small period of time to see us. 

My friend that lives in Canada, comes in to town every 6 months or so, the longest period of time she's been out was 2 years but because of external factors. That's the time of the year when the rest of us that still live in town, leave everything on hold and just take a few days to spend them all together. Which is amazing. 

We normally go to lunch, or maybe, go to grab a coffee, a Starbucks is more accurate to say! we love it. We talk and talk for hours and hours, and laugh a lot, and I mean A LOT, in the process. We are all pursuing different careers so listening to each other anecdotes is the most interesting thing in the world. We all know the life and miracles of the people that study with each other just by knowing their names we all know that Juanita did this and Anthany did this other thing. 

There is nothing better in the whole world, than having such good friends. Taking the time to catch-up is relaxing and makes you just happy. Simply Happy. 

I love my besties and hope they are great as always! <3 

What do you do when catching up with your friends? 

PS. I leave you this weeks episode of beauty vlogger bootcamp below! Enjoy!

Beauty Vlogger Boot Camp: Week 8

Hey everyone! 

It's that of the week in which I start to ramble about BVBC! yes, I am loving it and I'm not ashamed about it. The challenge for last week and this week was to create a day time look and night time look from pieces found in a drift store. The catch, they could not go over 100 dolars. Bargaining power is the KEY. 

I loved the outfits two of the contestants pulled out. I have been watching the show for the last eight weeks and still don't remember the names. I am THAT bad with them. I loved the challenge and saw how their personalities came out with them. I think styling is a natural talent and it could also be developed if studied profoundly and with dedication. 

Honestly, the contestants have been doing great jobs through the time of the show. As it comes to an end, the competition gets tougher and the elimination process just becomes more and more difficult. The 3 girls left, just created a strong bond, and now having to bite their heads off to win makes it HARDER for the competition. I just hope the best wins, and no drama arise from it. 

Here I leave you with this weeks episode! 

Hope you like!

Update: Modeling?

Hey everyone!

I have been crazy busy these few weeks.There are some exiting things happening for me that I am not yet allowed to say but I hope soon I will be able to. My best friend since we were 5 years old is studying Communications and Broadcasting and something more fancy involving film making and she's asked for my help to model in one of her group projects. I have worked with her previously and I love how it all worked out.

Now I will do a pictorial like ad campaigns and we'll see how it all works out. I hope we can share some pictures with you and make a new layout for the blog! How cool would that be? Fingers crossed! 

Stunning pictorial right? 

Gossip Girl's season 5 has ended. I was so torn when the credits rolled and seeing that Blair is FINALLY fighting for Chuck. I wish they will not make us wait too long for the final season, which BTWs is going to be short, as of 10 episodes short. So I will have to wait helplessly for the new season and meanwhile thank God Pretty Little Liars is going to be back soon so my cravings for my all time favourite series is not going to be as bad as it has been this week! If you have any recommendations of what shows to watch, please please please let me know! I am in the hunt of new ones to keep in my mind. 

I hope you have a great week and that it started right for you <3

Beauty Vlogger Boot Camp: Week 7

Hey everyone! 

Another BVBC is here, but we could only see half of the challenge. Buying and styling on a budget is difficult enough to do it under time pressure. Right I sometimes take 2 hours to pick up the perfect clothes for the perfect outfit. 

I loved this week's challenge, and as the competition comes to an end, the challenges are being more stressful and a lot more relevant. 

Here is this weeks episode if you missed it! 

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have a great weekend!

Updateable me: University, Life

Hey Everyone!

I hope you spent a lovely mother's day with the ones you love! We spend it chilling in the house, I cooked a nice Dinner, Pampered the most amazing women and just relaxed from everything, the midterms just pushed me to the limit and just went home after every exam just feeling miserable. But I can't complain with my grades, they are pretty high and now I feel dumb for feeling so miserable after them! hahaha

(being buried with books much? hahaha) 

Now, I have some serious assignments to get done, as the semesters go by, i feel it is much more work to be done and is a hand full of everything, I needed this week of study to start to realize that with a stable way of life comes all the ups and downs, you just need to know which are your priorities. Up to some point I felt like quitting university and decided to follow a career path more like the Kardashians, going to nice parties, knowing the right people and putting my name on every single thing possible! hahaha I love them, don't get me wrong, but I was stressed out and horrified by my luck at the moment. 

In a more stable state of mind I can say that I would not want my life to be anything other than what its been so far, and with baby steps you can achieve a lot. 

Having good friends, and an awesome family by my side just make things a lot easier and bearable.

It's time for me to keep on doing university assignments but I love talking to you so much that I feel relaxed while writing these posts <3

If I could... a hundred years, climb the highest mountains,  laugh about everything, never shed a tear, fight with tigers,  I would do it for the women in my life, my mother and grandmother ( momma and grammi). 

They have given their lives to take care of us, they are the most dedicated human beings in the world. There are ups and downs in life that have never made them stop. I love them at their best, but most importantly of all at their worst. 

Here is a cheer for my momma, even if there are adversities, she has never cracked, she has kept the calm and made us keep it down. Once I was scared to go on my first day of kinder, even if it was tough to let go of the little girl, she showed a strength and made me realize everything was going to be OK. That is the support I have always known and my momma taught me well. If you are scared to make a move to go on with your life not knowing what is about to come, just take a chance either way life is a mystery that you can unwind on your own with the support given by the ones you love. Each step of my journey in life she's been there for me. Letting me know that my decisions lead to different outcomes some for the best and some that made me learn. 

She was never alone leading me through life. There she is the pillar for us both. My grammi. The other most important woman in my life. She has the strength of 100 men, and the courage of a Lioness fighting for her pups. She was a loving house wife when my momma was little, she was dedicated and still is to this day. The ups and downs of life have never stopped her. Some very rough moments happened when I was a little girl and she had to take a chance and stand up for my grandfather's pride. At her 55 Years of age, a dedicated wife and mother and grandmother, had to step out of her safety net and went out to work and took her life by the horns. She had never worked but still, she now has a successful business. That is how strong she is. Later in the year that past, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. That was a blow. For her and for us. We were scared. Very. But she was in good hands and now she is recovering. I love her for that. She has been always there for us. 

Now that it is their special day, I wanted to dedicate this post to let them know how much of a proud daughter and granddaughter I am, I've learned of strength, I've learn what true love means from them. I've learned never to give up. Also to never settle. Take risks, in life you are allowed to fail and from failure you will learn to never fail on the same again.  


They are the women in my life. I am so proud to carry their blood and to learn about their courage.

Beauty Vlogger Boot Camp: Week 6

Hey Everyone!

It's been a couple of hard days for me with the studying and everything for the midterms, but I finally gave in and decided that some time to write to you guys is always worth a little rest for me. This weeks episode was about the beauty and the vlogging. 

It was about time that they had a challenge mixing both ingredients. I loved it. It really showed how the contestants behave in front of the camera and how they portray and stay truthful about their personalities. I really liked that little twist they had for the challenge making someone get only two minutes to do the make up tutorial while the others got complete 5 minutes to complete the challenge. 

I thought this week, as the episode was released yesterday, that I will not spoil it and let you guys enjoy every single aspect of it. 

I leave you with this brand new episode of BVBC hope you enjoy! 

Have a nice day loves!

NOTD: Revlon's Really Rosy

Hey Everyone!

As you can tell, I'm a huge Revlon Nail Polish Junky. Today, is Friday, my favourite day of the week because the weekend starts. I thought today I wanted to wear a colour that was still summery but more earthy toned to go with the fall that is coming.

I personally love this colour, it's girl-y but gives an edge to the whole concept, it's a dirty rose tone.

it's a really pretty colour but i feel the picture just distorts the tones. But it pretty much looks like it.

Have a nice day and enjoy the start of the weekend!

Beauty Vlogger Boot Camp: Boy Crazy

Hey everyone!

It's time for another of the infamous posts about BVBC!! Every Tuesday I get hooked on the internet and specially YouTube to see the premier of new episodes of this series. I love them, specially how some people just watch the episodes and give so much hate about them when I know some of those haters, as some call them, just love it so much but are plain out of this universe with jealousy about two regular girls makinbg a career out of their passion.

This week's challenge was all about the boys. They had to paint/makeup around with boy blank canvas. I think people thought this was just crazy, I did too, but thinking about it, it was not so crazy in the end. It had to be this way so they can judge over the creativity of the contestants, after all you need to have a lot of it to create some tutorials and picture some of the craziest requests.

I loved how Shanice had the vision to recreate something Vogue-ish and stood out from the other participants. It was my favourite look and just thought that she has what it takes to become a really good beauty and fashion guru.

Here is the video! I hope you enjoy! <3

Style Crush: Kim Kardashian

Hey everyone!

I think every single person in the world has some kind of crush about the style of a regular person or celebrity. Today I am talking all about my obsession with Kim Kardashian.

Ever since her breakthrough in the spot light with her famous friend Paris Hilton, she has know how to work her way in a very stylish and glamorous way. She knows how to dress for the occasions and, since she is a pettite size person, always knows bet to wear her very loved high heels.

I think with her, the philosophy of the higher the better goes in every way of the expression. She never leaves her house without wearing her beloved shoes, unless she is off to the gym or some other extracurricular activities (aka, not working).

Her style is the working girl inspiration, I love how some of her form fitting cut dresses and clothes show her figure and show that self confidence. Not many people or celebrities know how to pull this off, to find something that just enhances your personality and the gorgeous silhouette of the body.

As a girl, I struggle with finding the right clothes, but by watching, I tend to learn. Kim used to style celebrity closets and organize them. So much ideas you get from that is just overwhelming and you need to keep track of it and just internalize as much content as you desire. Being a socialite is something that helped her also, being surrounded by all the glam and shine and expensive accessories.

Her mother, Kris, has taught the girls, all of her siblings, how to take good care of the skin and how important it is to look fresh and natural. It does not matter if you have the most shocking and pretty dress if you look all tired and drained. You'll end up being the most glamorous zombie out there and you don't want that.

In a recent picture you can see her getting out of the plane and out of the airport looking fabulous and renewed and comfortable, without looking like a slob.

this is how you know when a person has a great sense of style and that they like to show the world they are the best at it.
Who's your personal style crush? let me know in the comments :)



Welcome May!

Hey everyone!

It's May already, I feel the year is flying by so fast! And of course, you gotta be the best at everything you are going to do. I have been stressing over the university and have witnessed that every day as it gets closer to the last semesters of it, it becomes harder and harder.

Trying to balance every little detail in life is not impossible but it sure is a whole lot of work. I love the challenges but some days I just feel drained and with no energy to get out of bed, but girls gotta do what girls have to do and just keep on going to reach your goals.

I have a pretty nice memory to share with you all since it's May and it's the 4 year anniversary of my prom trip to Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic.

At this time of year, we were all prepping to get our tans on and enjoy the live in the sea. The skies where clear and the seas were super turquoise and crystal clear. Every single bit of the beach was bright and beautiful. 

a view from the plane so you can see what I saw :) 

I feel like every little detail can be seen down there. The hotel was everything you could've asked for. We stayed at the Tropical Princess and it is part of the Bavaro Princess chain of Hotels. 

here a picture of one of the pools

kite surf

I was so happy there, I found someone special and saw how pretty life is, and how good you feel while living life at it's fullest. 

Talking about this made me want to go back, maybe after graduating university I will travel with some friends over there. Or who knows, maybe I'll go to some other place, like Montercarlo. 

I hope you have a nice day and Month.



all pictures belong to me.
