Simon Premium Outlet Desert Hills OOTD + Experience || Mi Atuendo Para Irme de Compras a los Simon Premium Outlets + Experiencia!

This post was sponsored by Simon Premium Outlets through their partnership with POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by POPSUGAR to write a post about Simon Premium Outlets, all opinions are my own.

If you follow me on Snapchat then you saw that I went to Desert Hills Premium Outlets the other day. I found GREAT deals and I started making my gift list for Christmas, which is rapidly approaching. I live in San Diego and Desert Hills Premium Outlets is about 2 hours away. I always like venturing to outlets that are not close by because each mall has a different selection of stores. If you want to see a list of centers near you click here and add your zip code.

The Simon Premium Outlets are a great option to shop for yourself, but especially for your loved ones. There is something for everyone and if the savings that the stores have are not enough, you can also buy a VIP Coupon Book for $5 dollars to get additional discounts at certain stores. I got my coupon book for free because I'm a AAA member; however, I would have purchased it either way because I saved more than $100 using the coupons in the book.

Below you will find a couple items that I recommend for this holiday season, and if you want to see what I purchased on my visit, check out my YouTube video below!

My Hair Story + Tips For Those Who Hate Doing Anything to Their Hair

There was a time in my life when I could not stand seeing a hairbrush. For me, seeing that round or rectangular artifact was the equivalent of pain. My hair used to get tangled a lot when I was little (not so much now) and my mom would literary run after me to do my hair. Every morning I would withstand the head pulls that tangled hair gives, and those experiences ended up making me dislike doing anything to my hair. I must also add that I have a lot  of it!

Now, as a grown woman I have learned that brushing your hair before going to sleep is a good way to prevent hair tangling and avoid those morning knots. After many years of having a love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with my hair I can happily say that we are slowly working things out and making peace.

In the last five years I have finally begun to experiment with my hair. I went from doing nothing to it except washing it with any shampoo and brushing it every morning to actually having a routine. I have found that having the right tools and products is necessary to make our lives, and that of our hair, easier.

Here are a few quick tips for people who hate doing anything to their hair:

5 Minute Holiday Eyes With Milani Cosmetics + Giveaway (Maquillaje de Ojos en 5 Minutos con Milani + Sorteo)

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias Inc and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #LookByMilani 

My favorite holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) are almost here and with them comes preparing our outfits and makeup looks; however, many of us spend the day preparing to host those special evenings, which sometimes leaves us with zero time to do our makeup! For me, at least, during Christmas it doesn't matter how soon we begin to prepare the Tamales, we always run out of time! That is why today I will teach you a 5 minute eye look with Milani products that is easy to achieve and that will complement almost any outfit! 

Lace Jacket and Neon Heels: A Society+ Collaboration || Chamarra de Encaje y Zapatillas Neon: Una Colaboración con Society+

Fall has not really reached Souther California. Although we've had a couple of rainy days, the weather is still pretty warm. This outfit reflects my desire to finally be able to wear jackets, sweaters, and layers. This Lace Jacket is from Society+ and it's perfect for the bipolar weather we've had in San Diego. 

When Society+ approached me to select a couple of item for their Fall Haul Collection, I was automatically drawn to this jacket because it's so me! If you have seen my Youtube Videos then you know that I have a slight obsession with lace. I think lace is one of those items that is cute, chic, and romantic. I like pairing this jacket with jeans and heels, or even with a dress underneath and flats! 

Overall, as you can see, eventhough summer is over we can still use those neon color items we have in our closet. It is all about balance and that is why I love this outfit! 

Oh, and if you live outside the U.S. beware because they ship internationally for the super affordable flat rate fee of $11.99!

El otoño aun no ha llegado al Sur de California. Aunque hemos tenido algunos días lluviosos, aun sigue estando un poco caluroso. Este atuendo refleja mis deseos de por fin empezar a usar mis chamarras, suéteres, etc. Esta chamarra de encaje de Society+ es perfecta para este clima bipolar que hace en San Diego. 

Cuando Society+ me contacto para escoger algunas piezas para su nueva colección, Fall Haul, yo automáticamente me enamore de esta pieza por que.... simplemente es muy yo! Si me siguen en mi canal de YouTube, entonces ya saben que amo el encaje. Creo que el encaje es una de esas telas que son bonitas, muy femeninas, y románticas. Me encanta usar esta chamarra con jeans y zapatillas o hasta con un vestido abajo y flats! 

En si, como pueden ver, aunque el verano halla terminado, aun podemos usar los colores vibrantes y neones que tenemos en nuestro closet. Lo único que tienes que hacer es balancearlo. Todo esta en el balance! Por eso me encanta este atuendo! 

Lace Black and White Dress || Vestido de Encaje en Blanco y Negro (Moda Para Gorditas)

Society+ is an online clothing store with a unique twist. Besides selling fashionable clothing pieces for women between sizes 12-32, they want to make a difference in the plus size fashion industry through their campaign #NoEditNoShame. This campaign seeks to inspire woman to be who they are without feeling the stress and pressure to fit into society's standards and "edit" themselves. Today, I'm brining to you one of the two pieces I chose to curate for their Fall Haul collection.

This first piece is a lace black and white dress. I chose this because you know I'm all about lace; therefore, both items I chose for my Society+ collaboration have lace in them. On my next post you will see the second piece I picked, but today I wanted to show you must have dress for Fall.

What I like about this dress is that you can dress it up or down. It is perfect for a holiday party (thus the red heels and gem necklace), you can also wear it to work by adding a blazer on top and minimizing the accessories, or you can wear it casually by wearing flats and other less sparkly accessories. It is simply perfect and comfortable!

FYI: I did have to use a black cami underneath in order to keep everything nicely covered; however, if you like to have the bust area a little more disclosed, then there is no need to do so :P
