Alistándonos Para un Verano en Familia || Getting Ready for Summer Family Time (GIVEAWAY)



¿Cuantas de ustedes tienen proyectos sin comenzar? Si les pido que salgan ahora mismo a su jardín y que me manden una foto de el, ¿lo harían? ¿Están orgullosas de ese espacio? Si tu respuesta es no, entonces no te preocupes por que seguramente estamos en las mismas.

Mi jardín es muy grande. Aun nos falta mucho trabajo para que nos quede como lo envisionamos cuando nos mudamos a esta casa hace muchos años. Nosotros, como muchas personas, aveces no le damos el mantenimiento debido a nuestro jardín ya que se requiere dinero y tiempo.

Muchas de ustedes que ven mis vlogs seguido saben que el Bigotes (mi novio) y yo siempre andamos asando salchichas. O.k, no siempre, pero si muy seguido jaja, admito que aveces se nos queman. Hace unas semanas se "murió" mi asador y me dije "Ale, auto regalate un nuevo asador y aunque no puedas cambiar todo tu jardín, trabaja en una pequeña area que sea tu espacio para cocinar, que lo haga ver mas vivo, y que incite a pasar mas tiempo con la familia."

Así que ese es mi propósito para este mes. Espero que me quede bien! (pongamos changuitos). Ya que termine ese proyecto les mostrare como me quedo. Creo que si empezamos a trabajar en espacios pequeños nuestro proyecto grande de re-diseñar el jardín sera aun mas fácil por que no nos vamos a estresar por el dinero o por el tiempo.

Voluminous Hair and Soft Skin Under $20 Bucks| Pelo Voluminoso y Piel Suave Por Menos de $20


I used to think that Hollywood hair– you know, that hair that looks smooth and voluminous every day— was limited to the rich and famous. Throughout the years, I have learned that looking and feeling like a Hollywood star does not have to come with a huge price tag. However, I do have to say that finding the right products can be challenging.

A few weeks ago I began using the NEW Suave® professionals Sea Mineral Infusion hair and body products and I was very impressed by them. They are made with rich sea minerals that will make our skin look and feel smooth, moisturized, and luminous and their hair products will leave our hair soft and with a lot of volume. 

The NEW Suave® Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Buoyant Body Shampoo & Conditioner are AWESOME! They promise to give you volume, and you get volume. I have never had a shampoo that delivered on their volume claim, so I was more than impressed when I noticed my hair looking voluminous after "blowdrying it flat!" 

TIP: Based on my experience, I suggest you massage the shampoo well into your scalp. Sometimes I'm on a hurry and I just massage it briefly, but I noticed that my hair has more volume when massaging it well. The conditioner is a great complement to the shampoo, and I must add that their sea inspired fragrance leaves my hair smelling great for hours. 

The Mint Green Plus Size Blazer: A Spring Look | Atuendo Para Gorditas - Menta para la Primavera


It is finally beginning to feel like spring in Southern California and that made me get in the mood for light colors. A few weeks ago I bought these pieces from Torrid, and I was waiting for the right time to wear them! Today was that day!

I cannot tell you how long I have been wanting a cute mint/green plus size blazer, and I finally found it! This blazer is comfortable and perfect for warm or cold weather. The floral top is super cute too, and combined with this awesome statement necklace and plus size jegging jeans from torrid, this is the perfect outfit for a semi-casual outing. 

The nude shoes, the white Michael Kors "clutch," which is actually a cross body bag, and the mint and pink bracelets from Forever 21 complement this outfit to perfection!

How are you dressing for spring?

No les puedo decir cuanto tiempo eh estado buscando el saco menta/azul ideal, y por fin lo encontré! Este blazer es cómodo y fresco. Es perfecto para el calor o el frío. La blusa floreada esta super bonita también, y combinada con el collar grande y los jeggings claros de Torrid, este atuendo es perfecto para una salida semi-casual. 

Los zapatos color carne, y el "clutch" blanco de Michael Kors, junto con las pulseras rosas y menta de Forever21 complementan el atuendo a la perfección. 

Y tu, como estas combinando tu ropa en esta primavera?

rue21's New Plus Size Line || Nueva Linea de Ropa a la Moda y Economica en Tallas Plus de rue21

  
When I was a teenager (not so long ago haha), I suffered due to the lack of plus size fashion options. There were only about three stores that had trendy and affordable fashion in my size, and I cannot tell you how frustrating that was. Nowadays, however, young women have many more options. rue21, an affordable fashion clothing store that caters to young women, now offers trendy plus size clothing as well. Honestly, I could not believe it when I saw the “Plus” section on their website.

rue21, as they mention in their About section, “comes from the French word for 'street' while '21' embodies the age that everyone wants to be!” Their aim is to sell “fashion that’s modern, trendy and affordable,” and that's exactly what I found. Although their clothing caters primarily to the younger generation, there are pieces that “older” women can definitely pull off.

rue21, I have to say, definitely scores a ten in selection, sizing, and affordability. They have trendy pieces like the famous and popular joggers, party dresses perfect for those school dances, jeans that go up to a size 24, activewear, and many other items that make rue21 the perfect destination for us plus size women.

When I was growing up, jean-shopping was my absolute nightmare. As I mentioned in the article “3 Tips to Purchase Jeans If You Are Apple Shaped”, carrying the majority of our weight in the mid area makes it extremely hard to find the right fit. What I liked about rue21 is that they carry a lot of stretchy jeans, like jeggings, that adjust to your curves and give a pretty silhouette.

The dress selection is also very good, and guess what? Their dress sizing, like their jeans, also goes up to a size 24! I'm so used to junior brands only offering up to size 20 or a small 3x that I felt the need to re-emphasize rue21's sizing.

Overall, I was extremely surprised with the selection of clothing. Like I said before – although this is a junior's brand, I think there are pieces that any of us can wear. I cannot wait to visit my nearest store to try on some of these trendy plus size items. So, be prepared for a haul when that happens! In the meantime, I put together a couple of collages with my favorite rue21 plus size clothing pieces that I know you will also love.

Cuando era joven (hace muy poco jaja) sufrí por la falta de selección de ropa plus económica y a la moda. En aquellos tiempos solo habían como tres tiendas que vendían ropa a la moda en mi talla, y no les puedo decir lo frustrante que eso fue. Ahora en día, las chicas jóvenes tienes muchas mas opciones. rue21, una tienda que vende ropa económica para jovencitas, ahora también lanza su linea de ropa plus. Honestamente, no lo podía creer cuando mire que su pagina decía “Linea Plus.”
