We all know that fall calls for a quick wardrobe makeover but most of us forget that with the change of weather our skin has different needs, and it's time to change our skin care & makeup products too! During this season my skin tends to break out. That is why I like to use products that help me to keep my skin clear. I recently discovered that Neutrogena® has a SkinClearing® makeup line especifically designed to cover up blemishes and prevent acne. Of course that is all I've been using lately and today I'm going to show you my fall makeup routine.

First I like to apply Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Blemish Concealer on all the areas where I have blemishes. This product covers up blemishes but it also helps them clear up because its formula contains salicylic acid an active that quickly eliminate and prevent pimples. Who doesn't love a double-duty product?! Unlike other concealers this one is non comedogenic, so It won't clog your pores.

Next I apply my Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Liquid Makeup . This is a lightweight foundation was  formulated for acne-prone skin, it not only treats blemishes, but also helps prevent emerging acne breakouts. I like to apply it with my fingers first and then I apply a second coat with a kabuki brush to get more coverage.

To set the makeup in place I use the Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Mineral Powder. This compact contains oil-absorbing powders that help my skin stay shine-free. It's super easy to use this while on the go because the package holds an applicator and it has a mirror! I usually carry this on my purse to touch up my makeup during the day.

To make my eyes look more open I apply a very thin line of Neutrogena® Nourishing Eyeliner on the lower and upper lash line. Sometimes I like to blend out the eyeliner for a smokey look. This is the creamiest eyeliner I've ever used and I also love that the color is buildable. If I'm in a rush I also use it to slightly fill in my eyebrows.

I'm loving the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Sticks to add some color on my lips. These lippies are balm-like and super moisturizing. I love a dark berry shades for fall, so for this look I used Wine Berry.

When I first met Eric he wasn't used to eat Mexican food at all. I know right? Who doesn't love It. Till' this day I could feed the man with Fries, burgers and chicken wings every day.  Instead I like to show him all the good stuff Mexican Cuisine has to offer, and every now and then I  make his favorite dishes with a twist of Latino Flavor.
--
Cuando conoci a Eric el no estaba acostumbrado a comer comida Mexicana ... ya se que se estaran preguntando: a quien no le gusta la comida mexicana? Bueno pues a el (antes) , y aunque ya hemos estado juntos por muchos años en los que le he ensenado todo lo bueno que la cocina mexicana tiene para ofrecer, la verdad es que el podria alimentarse de hamburguesas, alitas y papas fritas todos los dias sin cansarse. Es por esa razon que algunas veces hago sus platillos americanos favoritos con un toque de sabor latino

morena-jalapenos-loaded-hashbrowns-recipe

These Spicy Loaded Hashbrowns are a favorite in my house. They may not look pinterest worthy but they are full of favor. Best part is that It only take minutes to make them, and you only need a few ingredients, most of whom I always have in my pantry like  LA MORENA® Whole Jalapeños and LA MORENA® Chipotle Sauce. Those last two are the key ingredients to add a kick of spicyness to the dish.
--
Estas papas Hashbrown con jalapenos son un favorito de mi casa. A lo mejor no se ven super bonitas pero les aseguro son deliciosas. La mejor parte es que solo toma unos minutos hacerlas y todo lo que se necesita son ingredientes que por lo regular yo siempre tengo en casa como  LA MORENA® Whole Jalapeños and LA MORENA® Chipotle Sauce. Estos ultimos dos son los ingredientes que le dan ese toque picosito a esta receta.

En un sarten grande calienta el aceite y despues agrega las papas. Cocinalas por unos 10 minutos y dales la vuelta. Al mismo tiempo comienza a cocinar la salchicha en un sarten diferente.

 Add onions and bell pepper, garlic, sliced jalapeños and cheese to the hash browns. Stir everything together and cook until it's fragant and the cheese is melt. then Make four nests for eggs and add the eggs in each one, season them with salt and peper and cover the pan with a lid.

Una vez que las papas esten doraditas, agrega el chile morron, ajo, jalapenos y queso. Mezcla todo  y cocina hasta que el queso este derretido. Despues has cuatro espacios para los huevos y ponlos a cocinar ahi.

While the eggs are cooking make the gravy. Sprinkle flour over the brownde sausage. Pour over milk and and simmer until very thick. Then add two tablespoons of chipotle sauce.

Mientras los huevos se estan cocinando, se puede comenzar a hacer el gravy. Para esto se debe espolvorear harina sobre las salchichas ya cocinadas, despues se agrega la leche y se deja al fuego hasta que se espece. Por ultimo se le agregan las dos cucharadas de salsa de Chipotle y se mezcla bien.

I haven't posted an outfit post in about two weeks because I've spend every weekend enjoying this nice weather, instead of going out to take outfit pictures. Truth to be told I haven't been in the mood either until I received some clothes from I saw It first and suddenly I got inspired again. Since I saw this suede skirt and the printed "shirt" (which is actually a romper) I knew I had to wear them together. If you haven't heard about I saw it first I definitely recommend you to check them out, specially their $5 section. My only advice when buying things there  is to check the sizes guide because everything comes in european sizes, and those smaller than American sizes. That and to stay away from anything white! 

What do you think about this outfit?

Ya tenia dos semanas que no publicaba uno de mis outfits diarios porque en los ultimos dias me he preocupado mas por disfrutar lo mas que pueda este clima de verano en pleno, y he dejado al blog un poco de lado. Pero queria hacerles este post rapido para ensenarles este outfit que pedi en I saw It First. Ellos me contactaron hace poco  y escogi algunas piezas de su sitio, esta falda de gamuza y la blusa (que en realidad es un romper) son las que mas me gustaron y quise ponermelas en conjunto. Se los recomiendo 100% ,  la ropa es de buena calidad , los precios asequibles , y ademas tienen una seccion de $5. Mi unica recomendacion es revisar las tallas porque son europeas y por lor regular son mas chicas que las tallas Americanas! 
Que les parece el outfit?

"El dia de los muertos" or Day of the dead is a celebration to honor our loved ones who passed away, but this tradition have nothing to do with sadness or scary things. This is a festive time, where family and friends get together to remember those who have departed.
--
Una de las tradiciones mas importantes de la cultura mexicana es el dia de los muertos , durante esa celebracion la familia se reune para  recordar y rendir tributo a a los seres queridos que ya no estan con nosotros.  

dia-de-los-muertos-party-inspo

I have gathered so many wonderful memories celebrating this tradition with my family in Mexico and this is something I want to continue doing now that I'm away. Reason why this past weekend I hosted a Dia de Los Muertos party/brunch at my house inspired by the colors and food you'll see in a traditional "altar del dia de muertos" (also known as ofrenda in some countries.).  I decorated the house with colorful flowers, skulls and garlands . Then I set up a buffet table with traditional food like corn, salsa, guacamole, beans, tamales , etc, all delicious stuff!
--
Tengo muchisimos recuerdos muy bonitos de las celebraciones de dia de muertos con mis familia en Mexico y es por eso que yo continuo la tradicion en mi nuevo hogar aunque este lejos de mi pais.  La semana pasada hice una fiesta del dia de muertos en mi casa e inspire la decoracion y comida en los altares de dia de muertos (tambien conocidos como ofrendas en algunos paises). Primero decore mi casa con algunas guirnaldas de papel , flores de colores y por supuesto calaveras. Despues prepare una mesa de buffet con comida tradicional como tamales, frijoles, guacamole, salsa, muchas cosas deliciosas!

Dia the los muertos  is not complete without coffee and pan de muerto (or sweet bread). I created an special drink for the bruch: "Pumpkin Spice Nescafelatte" using NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ Coffee a 100% pure coffee and  NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Pumpkin Spice Flavor Creamer which by the way is lactose free.  I set up a little coffee station on a bar cart. That was the star of the party!

ps. It is too soon to find pan de muertos at the bakery because Dia de los muertos is not until october 31st, the bread in the picture are Conchas, my favorite.
--
Algo super caracteristico del dia de muertos es el cafesito con pan de muertos. Todavia es muy pronto para encontrar pan de muertos en la panaderia ya que el dia de los muertos es hasta octubre 31, asi que yo utilice conchas. Para combinarlas hice Pumpkin Spice Nescafelatte utilizando NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ Coffee 100% cafe puro y NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Pumpkin Spice Flavor Creamer  que es una crema para cafe libre de lactosa. Esa bebida fue la estrella de la fiesta!


 Nothing like catching up with friends enjoying a cafesito 


pumpkin-spice-latte-recipe-nescafe


To make a cup of  Pumpkin Spice Nescafelatte first you need to disolve 2 teaspoons NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ Coffee in 2 teaspoons of water. Then pour 1 cup of warm milk to the mix, and add 1 tablespoon of NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Pumpkin Spice Flavor Creamer. You can top your coffee with whipped cream or frothed milk. Finally garnish with cinnamon powder or a cinnamon stick. This recipe is super easy to do and it's perfect to enjoy during fall and serve at your day of the dead parties.

Para hacer una taza de Pumpkin Spice Nescafelatte necesitas disolver dos cucharaditas de NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ Coffee en dos cucharaditas de agua. Despues agregar una taza de leche caliente. Puedes agregar crema batida o leche batida encima y finalizar con un poco de canela en polvo. Esta receta es super facil y rapida de hacer y me encanta .

By the way, that NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ Coffee jar next to the flowers is definitely giving me "la casa de la abuela" vibes. I'm sure all my latina girls reading this will agree!
Nestlé and   NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ have been part of my pantry since I can remember and I love that I can keep following the family traditions and buy all my Nestlé favorites at Walmart.

--
Ver el tarro de NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™  al lado de las flores me recuerda a la casa de la abuela, seguro todas las latinas leyendo estaran de acuerdo conmigo! Nestlé y NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ ha sido parte de la despensa en mi casa desde que me acuerdo y me encanta que puedo continuar la tradicion familiar y comprar mis productos favoritos de Nestlé en Walmart.

How to build a gallery Wall

This post has been sponsored by Framebridge. Affiliate links are included in this post, I'll be compensated if someone clicks on an affiliate link and makes a purchase.



It has been more than a year since we moved to our little house and we still haven't finished decorating. Honestly, all I've done so far was hanging a canvas on the living room, and I put one of our engagement photos on a nighstand ... big fail I know!

Having a gallery wall on the living room is something we really wanted. We used Framebridge to custom frame our photos, and I have to say they made really easy for us to make our vision come to life. You can upload your pictures on their website and see the way they would look in the frame. That was really helpful for me because I'm really indesisive, having a visual idea helped me a lot to choose the frames and pictures I wanted to use without overthinking it.




1.  Start with a large center piece

I already had my big canvas weirdly hanging on the wall, so I had no other option than make it my focal point.


2. Choose your prints / pictures

We decided that we would add pieces with a special meaning or memory about our relationship. 
Like some of you know Eric and I are from different countries, we were in a long distance relationship for about 3 years before we moved in together. We have a lof of pictures from all the trips we did while we where dating, so we decided to incorporate some of them.



The first thing we chose was a map from Cancun. That was where Eric and I met, the text on the bottom are coordinates of the exact place where we met. The other picture is from our engagement session. I absolutely love it because you can see the Chicago Skyline on the background. Chicago was the first city in the US I visited during one of our dates.  It is also the city were we bought our first house and where we live now.



Finally, this picture is from our first trip together, we went to Huatulco, Oaxaca and we took that picture during a boat ride.


3. Pick your frames

You can mix and match different widths, textures, styles and colors but make sure to keep your frames in you color palette to make it look cohesive. For the map we choose "the Aiden" with a personalized mat, and the Irving Slim for the other one. I also love "el dorado" and "gatwick. I really want to get those for other rooms in our home.


4. Lay it out

Before hanging out your art, measure the wall space you want use then create a layout on the floor with all your frames. I recommend you to rearrange the layout as many times as you need until you find the one you like the most! If you're not got at that (like me) You can also use Framebridge's gallery wall service for under $100 and they will create a layout for you.










What do you think about my gallery wall? I'm very happy with the way my gallery turned out. It makes our house to feel more cozy and it's really nice get to remember all those beautiful moments in out relationship every time I look at that wall.
