IHeart Radio " Mi musica" by JC Penney Recap



Wearing : A.N.A cropped jeans (under $25)  | Velvet Camisole (SALE $5)  | Libby Edelman Fiona mini bag | choker necklace: similar - similar

Last week I flew to L.A because was invited to IHeart Radio "Mi musica" w/ Becky G presented by JCPenney.  Events are always fun but they are so much better when you are part of this experiences in collaboration with companies you love and trust. Like some of you probably saw on my instastories I had a blast! and I got to meet other Latina Bloggers like Naty Michelle who I've been following since before I started blogging.

Our day started the JCPenney Glam suite. The suite was on the last flor of the hotel and and we got to mix and mingle enjoying a beautiful sunny day at the rooftop while having some bites and drinks.

After we got out hair done by Salon InStyle we went to the "Finish the Look" station where we got accesorised with jewelry and purses from JCPenney. I grabbed this mini crossbody bag and this pearl choker.

Como a lo mejor algunos se enteraron, la semana pasada viaje a Los Angeles para asistir al evento de iHeartRadio Mi Música con Becky G Presentado Por JCPenney. Los eventos siempre son divertidos pero sin duda son mejores cuando eres parte de ellos en colaboracion con una compania que te gusta. Seguro ya vieron que me la pase increible y ademas por fin conoci en persona a algunas bloggers Latinas que he seguido desde hace tiempo como Naty Michelle.

Nuestro dia comenzo en la Glam Suite de JCPenney donde nos consintieron mucho. La suite estaba en el ultimo piso del hotel y en la terraza donde pudimos disfrutar de la tarde soleada.

Despues de los chicos del Salon InStyle nos arreglaron el cabello pasamos a la estacion "Finish the Look" en donde completamos nuestros outfits con accesorios de JCPenney. Yo agarre esta bolsita metalica y el choker de perlas.











Naty and I were accidentally twining. Both wearing velvet tops, ripped jeans and booties, but like I always say, accesories can make a huge difference. She is rocking that leopard jacket!
--
Sin querer Naty y yo fuimos uniformadas con tops de terciopelo, jeans con rotos y botitas, pero como siempre les digo los accesorios pueden hacer una diferencia total. Su chaqueta de leopardo cambia por completo el look y ademas se ve increible!









After we left the Glam Suite we went to the IHeart Radio Studios where we got to experience a preview of Becky G's concert during her sound Check previous to her performance. When she finished she took the time to talk a little bit with us and then we took some pictures with her at the meet and greet. The evening also included a Q&A with Enrique Santos, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of iHeartLatino and iHeartRadio on-air personality. I was having so much fun that I forgot to take pictures during the concert, luckily I have some images (courtesy of IHeart Radio) that I can share with you!

Despues de la Glam Suite, nos fuimos a los estudios de IHeart Radio en donde vimos cantar a Becky G durante la prueba de sonido. En cuanto termino, ella se tomo el tiempo de platicar un poco con nosotros y despues nos tomamos unas fotos en el "meet & greet". Durante el concierto, Enrique Santos, el director creativo de iHeartlatino hizo una pequena entrevista  con ella. Al final del dia me la estaba pasando tan bien que se me olvido seguir tomando fotos, por suerte IHeart radio nos compario algunas de sus fotos exclusivas del evento. Que les parecen?

5 things you should do before the New Year

This post was sponsored by Libman but all the opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep The Color Palette going!


 I can't believe there are only 5 days more left of this year, time flies! Is it me , or am I the only one who feels that as we grow older, years go by faster? I spent almost the entire weekend at home with my little family (BTW how cute are our matching outfits?) and yesterday we went to my in-laws house for lunch and to exchange our presents. It was definitely a quiet holiday, not only I enjoyed a much needed "time out" so much, I also got done the last couple things on my to-do list. So I thought I would share with you some of those things I like to do to Start the New year fresh.








Take a "day off" 

... and with this I don't mean to simply take some PTO, but to go beyond that! Treat yourself with a day at the spa or simply stay in your pj's and binge on your favorite TV show. Do whatever makes your heart content.

Do a deep clean of  your home.

My mom always said that starting the year with a clean house would keep the bad luck away for the rest of the year. I'm not a superstitious person but I do love starting the year with a squeeky clean house. Right before the year end we do a throughout cleaning of the house. You may didn't know this about me but I'm a cleaning freak, I spend a better part of my day tidying up my house and I almost every cleaning product you may think of. One of my favorite brands is Libman (this is one of the products I always have in stock) because they have everything. If you haven't heard about them yet stay till the end of this post because today I'm partnering with them to giveaway a bundle of their products to one of my readers.




Have you used this cloths? They are the best! Eric always used them to clean his car and his electronics because they don't leave scratchs, and I always steal them from him.


Complete Small Home-Improvement Projects.

Don't try to remodel your kitchen from scratch during this busy holiday Holiday Season! By small projects I mean finishing that gallery wall on your living room or changing the burnt out bulbs. We recently did those two and I swear our house looks completely different. Our last thing in our to-do list is to polish all the hardwood floors around the house. If you have that project in mind too, but don't have a lot of time in your hands I definitely recommend you to use Libman Hardwood floor polish and Protector, it works wonders removing superficial scratches from your floor and it also leaves it super shiny. It's a game changer!

Decluter your closet/home 

"Out with the old, in with the new". A good general rule of thumb is that If you haven't use it (or wear it) for a year it's time to let it go.  If there is anything in good condition that someone else can use, you can donate it or sell it if you want little bit of extra cash. ( I use poshmark to sell my unused makeup & clothes I don't weat anymore  ).

Check this post I wrote back in 2015 with "8 tips to get rid of the things you don't need"




Set small weekly goals for the rest of the year and do them!

I don't like in New Year's resolutions because they usually are about not doing things that you enjoy or doing things that you don't like. Which in most cases will result in giving up. For example, this year I resolved to wake up early to go to the gym before work. The truth is that I'm not a morning person and doing any type of physical activity in the morning sounds like a terrible idea to me. And guess what happened? These past months all the excersise I managed to do before work was running out the door because I woke up 15 minutes before my clock-in time. Big Failure! If that sounds familiar to you , try setting up small goals for the week like waking up 10 minutes early or staying away your phone 1 hour a day. 


Now let's move on to the giveaway....
The giveaway is open to the US only and to participate simply follow me on instagram ( @tcolorpalette) and write in a comment below wht is your MUST do before New Years! Good Luck!



Happy Holidays!!


"I'ts not whats under the christmas tree that matters its who around it"


Hey guys!! How are your holidays going? Mine have been super busy, full of events and holiday parties but above all so so fun! I hate to admit this but I haven't wrap the presents yet and I have no idea what I'm going to cook for the Christmas dinner either. If you can give me some ideas I would be forever grateful.

Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment to wish you the most wonderful Christmas time and a Happy New Year! but most importantly to THANK you to hang around with me another year. Seriously I'm beyond grateful with each one of you that come back to read every post and put a smile on my face with your lovely comments.  Also my friend Jessica (find her on Insta as @jesscrystal)  took these pictures for us and what a better moment to share them with you than on this post. Specially because this guy, who most of the time is behind the lens, is the other person who makes this blog happen. 

By the way would you believe that before this day Jess didn't know how to use a professional camera? I think these pictures came out great and it was only her first time doing it! This was the second time she did a photoshoot for us and you also loved it.

Hola! Que tal se la estan pasando esta temporada de fiestas? Yo super ocupada y con tantos eventos que nisiquiera he tenido tiempo de envolver los regalos todavia. Para ser sincera no se tampoco que vamos a cocinar para la cena de Navidad. Si tienen alguna recomendacion dejemela en un comentario.

Queria tomarme un momento para desearles una bonida Navidad y Feliz año Nuevo, pero sobre todo para agradecerles por haberse quedado y compartir conmigo un año mas. A lo mejor no lo digo lo suficiente pero siempre estoy super agradecida con cada uno de ustedes que se toma el tiempo de leerme en cada nuevo post y me hace sonreir con sus comentarios.

Por cierto, que les parecen estas fotos que tomo mi amiga Jess? Nunca se imaginarian que antes de este dia nunca habia usado una camara profesional verdad? Este post en instagram fue la segunda vez que tomo fotos para nosotros y por lo que veo tambien les gusto mucho.








ps. This is not the last post of the year . Come back next tuesday to read 'The 5 things you need to do to prepare for the New Year" & also a recap of the Jc Penney & I heart radio " Mi musica" concert that I attended in LA last week. See you then!

Jeans: Forever 21 (perfect fit for petites)  | Sweater : Zaful c/o (only $18!!) - similar  | Bag/Bolsa : Michael Kors (old) - similar  | Boots / Botas : AMIclubwear  (only $16)  Watch / Reloj: Anne Klein (old) 


otk-boots-winter-ami-club-wear

 If there is something better than an slouchy sweater , is a sweater that is oversized enough to wear it off shoulder. The trick to get this fit is to go up a size. I actually took a gamble when I ordered online this sweater because it is "one size fits all" , so I was surprised when It arrived because it is perfect! If you're looking for an oversized sweater this is it.
--
Los sweaters holgados son lo mas comodo, pero es aun mejor cuando los ordenas una talla mas grande para lograr ese look de hombros caidos que se ve super chic. Este sweater es "talla unica" y couando lo ordene estaba super preocupada de que viniera pequeno asi que me sorprendi bastante cuando me llego y era perfecto!


otk-boots-winter-ami-club-wear

I love to pair my baggy sweater with high waisted jeans to balance the loo and look a little bit more put together. When you're a petite playing with proportiorns is key. Adding some OTK boots in the same color as the jeans elongate the figure too. My OTK boots are perfect for petites too, for a reference I'm only 5'2.
--
Me encanta combinar mis sueteres holgados con pantalones a la cintura para balancear el outfit y al mismo tiempo acentuar mi figura. Cuando eres "petite" jugar con las proporciones es super importante. Otro tip es combinar tus zapatos con el color de los jeans. En este caso, use botas a la rodilla y esto hace que las piernas se me vean mas largas tambien. Por cierto, mis botas son perfectas para chaparritas, como referencia yo mido 1.58

The 6 dresses you need this season.

holiday-dresses
Hi Guys! How is this holiday season going? Mine has been great and packed with events left and right. Many of those happen right after work, and my mornings start trying to find an outfit that can take me from the desk to the next holiday party in style.  I've found that the easiest way to dress up for this type of situations is to wear a pretty dress and then dress it down by adding a cardi, a blazer  or another office appropiate piece.

Anyway , Here are a few of my favorite dresses. 
--
Hola! Que tal les esta yendo esta temporada de celebraciones? La mia ha sido super movida y llena de fiestas, muchas de las cuales suceden enseguida despues del trabajo, por lo que mis mananas comienzan buscando un outfit que pueda llevarse de la oficina a la fiesta. Lo que me ha funcionado es usar un vestido lindo en conjunto con algun cardigan o blazer.




1. Velvet Wrap Dress. There is nothing more classic & sophisticated than a wrap dress. This one is velvet and that's always better. You can pair it with tights and a pair of ankle boots and you're good to go.
--
Nada mas clasico que un vestido "wrap". Este es de gamuza asi que es aun mejor. Lo puedes combinar con medias y botines y listo!

2. Long Sleeve Dress. I got this dress recently and I love it because it's really versatile. I've worn it with tights, and also with dress pants (must try!). I recommend you to go up two sizes. I'm usually a 4 but I ordered this in 8.
--
Compre este vestido hace poco y me encanta porque es muy versatil. Lo he usado con medias pero tambien encima de pantalones de vestir!

3. Ruffled Hem Dress. This would look super cute with a white button down shirt underneath, or paired with a boyfriend blazer.
--
Este vestido se veria super lindo con una blusa blanca de botones por debajo, o tambien combinada con un blazer.


4. Fit and Flare printed dress. To tone down the print on this dress I would pair it with a black cardi.
--
Para bajarle el tono al estampado de este vestido, puedes combinarlo con un cardigan en color negro

5. Plaid dress (30 % off with codes friends). Nothing screams Christmas like red plaid. I love this dress because it can be worn multiple ways.
--
Nada me recuerda mas a la navidad que el estampado de cuadros en color rojo. Ademas este vestido puede ser usado de muchas maneras, lo que siempre es un plus

6. Sleveeless Black Dress . A must have!  In case you missed , I styled the perfect Little Black Dress three ways on my last post. You definitely need to check that one out you're looking for more ways to wear that trustworthy LBD.
--
Super escencial! Si te lo perdiste, en mi ultimo post hable sobre como usar un vestido negro sin mangas de distintas maneras.

3 ways to wear an sleveless Little Black Dress when it's cold outside


little-black-dress-three-ways

The LBD is one my favorite wardrobe staples and I've talked about it before in this post , and the other one where I made a REMIX with 6 different outfits wearing my various black dresses

But I decided to bring the subject back because I found "The Perfect Dress" ... literally, that is the name of the dress and it's from Lindsay Nicholas New York . This dress comes with a hefty price tag but I think this is one of those pieces that worth invest your money on, because it's very well made , fits like a dream, and you can wear it in so many different ways  throughout all four seasons.

 I also want to point out that this comes in petite sizes (I'm wearing a M petite) and there is also a half-sleeeve version . I decided to get the sleeveless version because it's way more versatile since you can also layer things underneath giving you more freedom when styling it. 


Let's move on to the looks!

El vestidito negro es una de mis prendas favoritas, y ya he hablado bastante de eso en este post, y este otro donde mostre 6 diferentes maneras en que usado mis vestidos negros .

Quise traer este tema de regreso porque encontre "el vestido perfecto" ... en verdad asi se llama el vestido que llevo en el post de hoy y es de Lindsay Nicholas New York . El unico pero que le pongo a este vestido es el precio, sin embargo si creo que es una prenda en la que vale la pena invertir porque la calidad es increible y ademas es una pieza que se pueda usar de mil maneras distintas. Tambien tengo que comentar que viene en talla "petite" (estoy usando la talla M petite) y tambien viene con mangas. Sin embargo yo me decidi por la version sin mangas porque me parece mucho mas versatil, ya que se pueden agregar capas por debajo y cambiar por completo el estilo del vestido.

Ahora vamos a ver los outfits!


little-black-dress-three-ways

EVERYDAY

A turtleneck top + sleveless dress is a very chic and cozy combo that can be worn for any ocassion. (This turtleneck top ) I also added a belt to shorten the dress a little bit and accentuate my waist. The addition of the OTK boots makes the outfit feel more put together and modern. 
--
Una blusa de cuello de tortuga debajo de un vestido sin mangas es una combinacion super calientita y chic que puede usarse practicamente en cualquier ocasion. Yo agregue un cinturon delgado para acortar el vestido un poco y acentuar mi cintura. Las botas altas completan el look y lo hacen ver mas moderno.

DATE NIGHT 

The easiest way to wear this dress is by itself paired with your favorite pumps (I absolutely love my lace up heels), and some long earrings to accesorisse. If you want to add a pop of color, I would add some shoes like these , or leopard pumps too!

A camel coat is the perfect complement for this dress during chilly days.
--
La manera mas facil de usar este vestido es  combinarlo con tus zapatillas favoritas (a mi me encantan estas) y aretes largos para accesorizar . Si quieres agregar un poco de color puedes usar unas zapatillas como estas o de estampado de leopardo.

Para terminar el look,  en los dias frias el complemento ideal es un abrigo color camel.

BUSSINESS CASUAL

This dress has the perfect lenght to wear it to the office too. For a polished chic look layer a button down shirt, and complete the look with oxfords, ballet flats or OTK boots with  tights if you work in an office with extremely cold A/C.

--
Este vestido tambien tiene el largo perfecto para llevar a la oficina. A mi me gusta combinarlo con una camisa de botones y completar el look con zapatos bajos de estilo oxford, o botas a la rodilla si es que hace mucho frio.
