Words on the street that I'm getting married and that has send my way so many amazing opportunities. From attending to bridal events to collaborating with the store where I got my wedding dress. Seriously I've been really spoiled for the pass year!! This time I was approached by Babbleboxx and I was sent their Bridal Bliss box full of essentials for the big day . Even If you're not a future bride or bridesmaid,  I'll still recommend you to keep reading because I'm pretty sure you'll discover a new product or two you'll love.

The first thing I pulled out from my box were some beautiful samples from Mixbook. I have to admit I was a little bit bummed when I saw them because I just had ordered my wedding invitations, and I liked their samples better.  However if you're looking for an affordable place to order wedding stationary check them out and use the code BABBLE50 for 50% off on your order. Besides beautiful wedding invitations, they also make canvas prints , calendars, and even photo-books!

My favorite item on the box were these beautifuel Moissanite Studs from Charles + Colvard. These are moissanite stones set in 14k white gold. Delicate yet super sparkly, these pictures really don't make them justice. In fact, moissanite is known for being one of the most brilliant minerals but at a fraction of the cost of other gemstones. I wear minimalist jewelry most of the time and studs are my favorite type of earrings. You'll probably see me wearing these all the time from now on! You can also save 15% on Charles + Colvard using the code BRIDALBLISS15.

Zoya also teamed up with Babbleboxx to create this beautiful bridal trio with colors that will compliment pretty much any bridal event outfit . The colors included are Jordan, Leia and Abby. I love LEIA it is a sheer polish with flecks of fushia, green and gold.

A product that was a mind-blowing discovery for me was this RingHero Ring Storage . This is a wristband that has a zippered pocket built in to keep your ring in there and "wear it" (read: keep it safe inside the pocket) when you're doing activities that can damage your ring. I personally prefer leaving my ring at home during those type of situations. So although I think this is brilliant, this is definitely not for me, I'm going to give it to my bridesmaid that just got engaged and she likes to keep her ring close to her at all times. Now through June 30th, you can get it for 10% off with the code BBRingHero.

Finally, let me talk you about the Bali Lace ‘N Smooth Body Briefer which I LOVED because, It tucks in your tummy while enhancing your curves at the same time. The best part is that it doesn't look like something your grandma would wear. It actually looks pretty sexy once it's on! This is definitely a must to wear under super tight dresses when you want to get a more defined silhouette. I don't have a discount code for this one, but I promise it worth every penny.

Hello LA!

casual-outfit-bodycon-dress


It's been over 4 months since I was in LA (for this event) but I'm finally getting around editing these pictures from the trip. This was during the third (and last) day there. That day we woke up super early to do touristy stuff around Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Right before going back to the hotel we found this colorful wall that I feel was the perfect background for my outfit. Sometimes these impromptu sessions are my favorite. I only wish I didn't had all those sunscreen stains all over my legs... oh well! By the way, If you're on the market for new Walking Shoes, I totally recommend you these Reeboks. I walked all over LA with them and I was super comfy!

Ya casi van 4 meses y apenas voy editando estas fotos de mi viaje a LA ( de cuando fui a este evento). Estas fotos las tomamos el ultimo dia justo antes de regresarnos al hotel para ir al aeropuerto. Desde temprano estuvimos paseando por Hollywood y Beverly Hills, y esta es una pared que encontramos por Sunset Boulevard. Verdad que fue el fondo perfecto para este outfit? Ojala no tuviera todas esas manchas de bloqueador solar por las piernas... pero bueno asi es la vida!

First of all sorry for the pictures overload. I just found this spot and I'm in love! It has the perfect city backgroud, the perfect lighting, and it's strategically hidden under a bridge. Besides the ocassional tour boats, we were away from the regular stares from curious people. I would share with you the location but for now is mine an Fashionlingual's little secret.

Besides the location, I'm also oving this outfit. When I'm not doing "blogger things" I live in joggers or boyfriend jeans, comfy tops and sneakers. This outfit is the perfect example of that. I wore with booties for brunch, but I switched into these killer heels for the pictures. The shoes make this outfit look more polished than it actually is, don't you think? Also, you may remember the top from my instastories. It is originally from GAP but I bought it at a thirft store for $2.  WIN! I'm going to make a post about my favorite thrift stores and tips to buy second hand pretty soon. So stay tuned!

Velvet Jewel tones.




Forever 21 dress - comes in grey toosimilar one for ONLY $6  | Forever 21 earrings | Coat (old) - similar | Shoes : similar - similar (they come in different colors)

You know I'm not a bright colors type of girl. But this past New Years Eve my instagram was flooded with pictures of beautiful jewel tone velvet dresses. I feel it wasn't too long before I started considering getting one, but by the time I started looking, it was like they suddenly dissapeared. Fast forward three months I found this dress on Forever 21, and I didn't think twice about clicking that add to cart button. I almost got it in grey too.

Besides the material and the jade hue , I love the combination between the classic wrap silhouette, and the modern ruffle details on the hem and neckline. This is definitely one of those pieces that make you feel extra feminine and confident without any effort. I also got this other very similar dress , and now it's on sale for $6, such a STEAL!!

Mas del 50 porcierto de mi guardarropa es de colores neutros, pero hace poco encontre este vestido en Forever21 y no dude en ordenarmelo. Fue una de esas cosas que enseguida capto mi atencion, no solo por el material y el tono de la tela, algo que tambien me encanta es la silueta clasica que contrasta con los detalles de volantes en el escote y la falda. Me gusto tanto que casi me lo pido en gris tambien. Este vestido es una de esas piezas que te hacen sentir super femenina sin esfuerzo. Tambien me compre este otro estilo muy similar, y ahora esta en solo $6 dolares, diganme si eso no es una super oferta!

My night time routine for clear skin w/ Neutrogena

With the wedding day getting closer, I've been taking extra care of my skin, mostly focusing on keeping it clear and free of blemishes. If you follow me on instagram you probably already seen some variation of my morning skin care routine, which in fact is pretty simple (moisturizing + eye contour + sunscreen). At night I ditch the sunscreen but I add a couple extra steps to help me with my skin concerns. One of the products I recently incorporated on my skin care regime, and has been really helpful fighting my hormonal acne breakouts , was the Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment ... just in case you're wondering WHAT IS THAT? Well, it is a device that targets and treats acne, without any harsh chemicals, using blue light (to kill bacteria) and red light (to reduce inflammation). I had a treatment like this before at the dermatologist but it was super expensive! So when I found out that Neutrogena had a product that works just as well and for a fraction of the price (It was only $16 at Walmart,  THAT'S LIKE 50 CENTS per day guys!!) I didn't think twice and added it to my cart.

The first step on my night time skin care routine is Cleansing. This step is super important, specially when you wear a lot of makeup. I always start by taking my makeup off, using one or two Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. I love these because how effectively they remove the makeup while they're also gentle on the skin. After that I  thourougly wash my face with Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser, which is a makeup remover as well!! After this second step, you bet I'm sure there isn't any stubborn mascara, nor oil clogging my pores.

Once my skin is clean and makeup free I use my Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment on my breakouts for two minutes at a time and that's it! It is recommended to use the device two or three times a day for better results, so I also repeat this step every morning and after work. One of the things I really like about this device is how portable and lightweight is because I can carry it on my purse and start treating any breakout even before it peaks out on the surface of my skin.  I've found that by doing that, you don't even give the pimple a chance. The other day I felt a little inflamattion on my chin area so used my little device right away, the day after the inflamattion completely dissapeared. I'm telling you this works!

The Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment is a better option for those with mild or sporadic acne/breakouts. I usually get one or two breakouts on my chin or cheeks. If your acne is a little bit more severe than that, the Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Mask may be a better option for you. It allows you to treat your entire face at once, and you have to use it only once a day for 10 minutes. It works just like the  Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment. Both are chemical-free and UVA/UVB-free. And NO, IT'S NOT HOT, you don't have to worry about your skin peeling or flaking after each treatment.
