Summer is all about outdoor activities, pool parties and spending our weekends at the beach.  During this season we take extra precautions to take care of our skin, but what about our hair? Too much fun in the sun can also damage our hair and most likely will leave it looking dry, dull & frizzy. I'm not saying you have to stay inside your house to keep your hair in good shape. That will be a waste of a summer right? Instead you can do these 6 easy hacks to have healthy hair all year long.

1. Choose your products wisely.

Once you identify the type of hair you have, the next step is to find the line of products that will target your hair concerns. When you find the the brand that work best for you, just stick with it! It's a common misconception that switching up your hair care brands and products helps you to get the most benefits out of them because your hair never gets time to adapt.  But experts disagree, the benefits of any hair care products are cumulative, and you should always use products within the same line together to get the best results. Since I grown my hair I use Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Hair Repair Oil Nutritive because it is specifically design to add moisture and prevent and repair split ends in long hair. (Remember when I used to have a bob?)

2. Never skip the conditioner 
Conditioner is for our hair  like the water is for the body.  It helps you restore the moisture to keep your hair healthy. I'm currently using  Schwarzkopf Gliss™  Oil nutritive conditioner, right after washing my hair with Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Oil nutritive Shampoo.


3. Eat the right foods 
We all know that good eating habits are important overall health. But did you know that the foods that you put in your body also play a role in the way you hair looks? A diet rich in iron,  Omega-3 fatty acids, and protein will help you and your hair to look their best.


4. Get haircuts regulary
This is one of the things that we tend to skip all the time specially when trying to grow your hair, but to add healthy lenght you need to get rid of the split ends.  Experts recommend a haircut every 6 to 8 weeks.

5. Hydrate daily 
This is extremely important during summer because we are most exposed to sun, chlorine and salt, and our hair definitely needs that extra dose of hydration.  Between washes I like to apply my Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Oil nutritive weightless oil to rebalance and rehydrate my hair. 


6. Never sleep with a pony tail
Hair elastics can break your hair, specially during night because when we sleep we usually roll around a lot. If you like to keep your hair up at night, try doing a lose top bun using a scrunchie or a cloth hair tie instead.

I put special attention in the products I use and I like Schwarzkopf® GLISS™ because their products are primarily focused on hair repair, and they are affordable.

 Summer wasn't even close when the first "summer must-haves wishlists" started to appear in many fashion blogs. Most of those featured pompoms, tassels, espadrilles, and straw hats & bags. All things that I swear I would never wear ... but here I am again, a living proof that when it comes to fashion you can't never say never. My hat is not only made of straw it also is decorated with pompons and tassels. Extra points for me!

Verano todavia estaba lejos de llegar cuando comenzaron a verse en algunos blogs las listas de escenciales de verano entre las que nunca faltaban los pompones, flecos, y sobre todo las bolsas y sombreros de paja. Cada vez que me encontraba con un post asi me decia : "yo nunca me voy a poner un sombrero de paja". Pero aqui estoy nuevamente contradiciendome y siento la prueba perfecta de que nunca hay que decir nunca. Mi sombrero no solo es de paja, tambien tiene pompones y flecos. Puntos extra para mi !

How to spice up your summer w/ Clamato and Walmart

Summer has arrived! It is my favorite season of the year because the weather is nicer, the days last longer and people looks happier. These days are perfect to be outside spending time with friends and family, and of course eating and drinking delicious stuff.


This season also brings back a lot of memories for me. I grew up in a city where is summer all year long, and I was surrounded by a lot of family and close friends who would always get together for any reason in particular. The one drink we would always have in our get togethers were Clamato micheladas. They are my favorite drink, specially when my dad makes them, His are amazing! This spicy and refreshing drink is perfect for those hot summer days. Luckily for you I know my dad's authentic Mexican Clamato michelada recipe, and just because National Michelada's day is around the corner. I'll share it with you.


For this recipe you'll need : Salt, lemon, english sauce, tabasco sauce, chilli powder, your favorite beer and of course Clamato Original Flavor. I went to my neighborhood walmart to get my ingredients and I found the Clamato on the Juice Aisle. While I was there I also picked some Seafood and Shrimp salad from their Deli , and called some friends on my way back for an impromptu backyard picnic at my house. After all, It's summer and National Michelada's day needed to be celebrated! 



The Authentic Clamato Michelada
 1. Combine salt and chili powder in a shallow dish. Run a lime wedge along the rim of glass and dip into the salt mixture.
 2. Pour 1 cup of Clamato Original Flavor in the glass
 3. Add the juice of two limes,1 tablespoon of english sauce, 1 teaspoon of tabasco sauce ( or a little bit more if you like spicy), and salt to taste. Mix it up.
4. Chill your mix with 3or 4 cubes of ice
5. Fill the rest of the glass with your favorite beer
6. Enjoy!


Drinking a refreshing michelada is my favorite way to spice up my summer. Have you tried them before? If not, let me tell you , you're missing out. Make sure to visit Mi Michelada match website fore more Michelada recipes and pairings.

The Wrap dress

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure HERE



A wrap dress is definitely THE #1 dress. It is flatering for every type of body,  perfect for any ocassion, easy to get into and easier to get out of ;) I've been looking for a sleveless wrap dress for several months and I was thrilled when I found this one (for less than $20) In Dresslily a couple weeks ago. I have to admit that everytime I order from an overseas store I get really worried that what I'll get won't be what I'm expecting or it won't fit (remember asian sizes run small), but so far this store hasn't dissapointed me. The only downside is the shipping time This dress took about 2 weeks to arrive, but the wait was totally worth it because I just love it. Sadly this one is not available anymore but I'll link some similar ones from the same store and others in the description! What do you think about this type of dresses?

El "wrap dress" o vestido cruzado aparte de ser halagador para cualquier tipo de cuerpo, tambien es super versatil y perfecto para cada ocasion. Yo llevaba bastante tiempo buscando uno sin mangas y me puse super contenta cuando encontre este que llevo hoy (y por menos de $20) en Dresslily. Tengo que admitir que siempre que pido ropa en alguna de estas tiendas "chinas"  me preocupa un poco que lo que me llegue no se parezca nada a lo que venia en la foto, o que la ropa no me quede, porque por lo regular la ropa viene chica (siempre pido todo en Grande o extra grande) , Hasta ahora nunca he tenido problemas de este tipo,  y lo unico por lo que podria quejarme es por el tiempo de envio, por ejemplo este vestido tardo como 2 semanas en llegar, pero la espera valio la pena para mi. Lo malo es que ahora este vestido ya no este disponible en la tienda, pero en caso que les haya gustado puse algunos de esta misma tienda o similares precios en la descripcion.

More Stripes

If you have been reading me for a while you may alredy know how much I love basic and versatile pieces. On my last post I was talking about my two favorite basics, so today  It felt appropiate to talk about another must have of mine: The stripes shirt. This one is a great alternative to the classic striped tee, just a little bit dressier. It is another one of those pieces that will effortlessy take you from the office to a casual date, since it can be easily dressed down paired with shorts or boyfriend jeans for a chic casual look. Are you a striped shirt lover? I am!

En el post anterior les hablaba de dos de mis prendas basicas preferidas, y hoy les quiero platicar de otro de mis favoritos: la camisa a rayas. Esta camisa no es nada mas que ua alternativa de la clasica playera de rayas pero un poquito de "vestir"". Es una de esas prendas que puedes llevar de la oficina a una reunion con amigos sin ningun prolema, ya que al llevarse en conjunto con shorts o pantalones mezclilla se hace mucho mas casual. Tu que piensas de las camisas de rayas? A mi me encantan!
