Tutu For 2




The last time I did a Tutu update on here was back when she was 16 months old and today she's a whole 2 year old! 🥳 So much has changed since then and let's just say she is a true Leo. This girl has so much personality, big heart, funny, and kind. I love being her momma! It's true what they say, time flies and they grow up so fast. I feel like it was just yesterday when I was 35 weeks pregnant and couldn't take her kicking my rib anymore. Lol! 

This year I know we were very limited to what we could do to celebrate her birthday so we did the best we could. My mom and sisters drove down from NJ which was great. They all took a Covid test before coming and once they were in the clear they planned and came down to visit us. We were all excited to see some part of our family, man that hug felt different with my mom and sisters. Over the weekend we all went down to visit a farm with Tutu to see some animals which she loves. I have a highlight on my IG if you want to see her busting a move in the middle of the farm, LOL! I highly recommend a farm if you are looking for something fun to do with your toddler this summer. The farm we went to was spacious, required masks, and everyone social distanced. She enjoyed the animals and we all had safe fun. The best part is that Tutu enjoyed the entire weekend and had fun opening up all her gifts. This little girl is the light in our world and I'm happy seeing her grow up. I love you 3000 Tutu!! 💞

Champagne is always the answer. 🥂 This graphic tee from Femme Luxe is giving me all the brunch vibes! I truly miss going to brunch pre Covid days. I know many restaurants are open to dine outside including places that serve brunch but honestly it's just not same vibe as before. So for now I'll live through my graphic tee for some brunch vibes. 

This graphic tee is another one from Femme Luxe's graphic tee collection. If you missed my other post with one of their tee's you can see it here! This has got to be my favorite one yet. I went for an all white look and paired it with a white denim midi skirt. I added a pair of see through mules and dark blue bag for a subtle pop of color. This would be the perfect outfit for a summer brunch!

Running Errands OOTD

Running Errands OOTD


These days my errands outfit pretty much look like this. A lot of people think I'm weird because I'm one of the few people who actually enjoy errands. I think it's the feeling of getting stuff done that I love. Pre -Covid days I would actually dress up to run errands and I don't mean dressed up with heels but I would love to create a nice comfortable outfit to get stuff done outside. These days I've resulted to loungewear or nice sweatpants. These grey high-waisted joggers are from Femme luxe. They have a TON of great joggers in their joggers collection. These grey ones are so comfy and I love how they don't look like frumpy sweat pants. They come a few colors but I felt you can never go wrong with basic grey sweats. How do you guys run errands pre and post Covid days?

Why I Decided To Go Natural | My Hair Journey



As you have been seeing me in all my recent post here on the blog and on social media you see I'm sporting my natural curly hair. In this post here on Instagram I kind of just stated a brief why I wanted to start wearing natural curls and I also didn't really specify if this was a permeant thing or not so I wanted to do a full blog post talking about it. At first I wanted to just do the natural thing for the rest of the summer because blow drying  your hair in the summer is extremely brutal and I also started to notice the front of my hairs on my crown was starting to break so I thought my hair could use a break from heat. I honestly started to feel deep down there was a little more than that to it and wanted to make the change permanent. Before I get into it in depth I wanted to share a quick hair journey from the beginning so the whole story can make sense! So grab a cup of coffee, tea, or wine for this read!


My hair growing up... 

Growing up in the Latin community having natural curly hair was considered to be "pelo malo" (bad hair) or "que pajon" which pretty much translates to your hair is a hot mess. My household was not shy from those beliefs. The minute I was old enough to go to a salon I was taken to salons mostly every weekend to get a blowout and by the time I was old enough to withstand a perm you better believe I was getting my hair permed monthly. My hair was straight as an arrow and because growing up that's all I was thought I was in love with it. By the time I went to college and was working and making my own money I went to the salon pretty much every week. I was in my early 20's so I also experimented with color! Lots of it! I've dyed my hair every color you can think of. Can you picture me as a blonde? Lol Eventually I got over that stage but by the time I graduated college my hair had gone years of perms and so much color treatment.

Some time in 2012 I was getting tired of my hair looking so weak and broken and just didn't know what else to do to make my hair look healthy. At the time my cousin had gone natural and she no longer was using chemicals in her like a perm. She told me that's a huge reason my hair looks thin, weak, and broken. She told me I should go natural and leave the perm world behind me and that it wasn't going to be easy but totally worth it. It took me a while to get on board and many times I was ready to fall off the wagon when I was seeing my natural hair grow in and pushing out that damaged hair out. That in-between time was such a frustrating process for me. I was still getting blow outs but taking better care of hair by not putting chemicals in it. A few years later my cousin tried to convince me to go full on natural and rock my curls and leave the flat iron behind but I was married to straight hair and had embedded in my head that natural curls where ugly since that's the environment I grew up in. 

A few years down the line, my hair had completely pushed out that damaged chemically treated hair and I had real healthy natural curls with nice form. At the time a lot of people who would see my hair curly on that once in a blue moon lazy day where I didn't want to straighten my hair and they would say how much they loved my curls but in my mind I hated them. Even my husband who I was dating around that time told me he loved my hair in it's natural state. My mind had a lot of undoing and healing to do from all the nonsense that was drilled into my head growing up about natural hair. 


Now..

Fast forward to now where I'm a mom and of course God gave my daughter my natural curls that I have been so scared to rock. God is funny that way. My daughter is very observant and every time I would blow out my hair at home she would say "wow mommy hair". I started to feel what if one day when she's older she sees her beautiful natural curls and hates it? Will I be the one to blame? That was sitting very heavy with me for a while and then insert 2020's big racial movement and something changed in me. I realized how much of this anti-blackness was in the Latin community for me growing up including the whole rocking your natural hair is "wrong" or that's "Black hair". Something in me starting brewing and I was so upset I grew up hearing all these awful things. My husband says I had a racial awakening and broke barriers with everything that was embedded in my head growing up. I feel different, ready to stand up for myself and what I believe in even if it's having an uncomfortable conversation with a family member or close friend.
As far as my hair, at first I told myself I was only going to try the natural thing until the end of July, then it changed to the end of the summer, then I just made the decision to make it a permanent thing. I don't care what any of my  anybody has to say about my natural hair. I honestly feel different and feel powerful and I think it's because of the reasons why I did it. 

I have been following so many curly girls and pages for inspo and tips and omg what have I been missing! All these natural curls look amazing! It's been 2 official weeks since I first rocked my natural curls and my hair has not seen a hot tool and I feel very confident. I thought it was going to take a while to undo everything that was drilled in my head growing up and to feel fully confident with my natural curls but I can say I feel more confident than ever. I'm no expert on properly styling, caring, or getting the proper products for my natural hair but I'm learning as I go. I feel I'm lucky and had a head start to achieve healthy natural curls since I left chemicals behind about 10 years ago to date! My curl pattern is not bad I just need to learn what the best products are for me to start undoing all the heat damaged I caused my hair over the years.

The pictures in this post was the first shoot I did with my natural hair and it felt weird but good weird. It was my first wash and go and honestly felt I flopped at it and didn't know how to tame my frizz lol. I've done so much research and I'm slowly learning techniques and what products I should be trying. My second wash and go was one I'm extremely proud of lol.

If you made it to the end of this post, you are the real MVP! I hope I can pass along this new self confidence I have found within myself to my daughter. I want to teach her to love her self no matter what kind of hair she has which was something I wasn't taught growing up.

How To Make a Graphic Tee Chic

Excuse my French but graphic tees are the shit! Haha! I'm a huge fan of graphic tees and there's so many to choose from. My favorite style are phrases like this "HONEY" T-Shirt from Femme Luxe. Their collection of t-shirts are extensive and I have one more blog post coming up with another great tee from them. A lot of people view t-shirts as frumpy and something you wear to just lounge in the house but I love dressing them up. I paired this one with a pair of wide leg pants to dress it up. I love it paired with these pants because it creates such a chic yet comfy look. I added a few accessories like this baguette color-block bag and fun heart shape sunglasses to add a few chic elements to the look.

Are you guys fans of graphic tees? If you want to see various ways to style them you can check out my 5 Ways To Style A Graphic Tee video and their you have plenty of outfit ideas!

A Boxy Loungewear Set

New hair who dis! If you follow me on Instagram then you saw I shared that I made the decision to go natural. There's so many reason behind it (not just summer humidity problems) but I will be sharing on a separate post soon. Today I wanted to share this grey v-neck boxy loungewear set from Femme Luxe. I'm sucker for a good loungewear set and I love a boxy style one. Boxy style tops are a big trend this year so I will definitely be styling this top separate from the set. I always rave about Femme Luxe because they have a great loungewear collection. I have been getting all my loungewear sets through out quarantine from them. They are comfortable, stylish, and inexpensive. I paired this grey set with a pair of platform shoes to do something different from sneakers.

A Stylish & Chic Luxury Backpack

pattys kloset, jord, jord watches, jord handbags, chic backpacks, backpack trend.

If there's one thing about my taste in handbags is that I love a stylish and chic backpack. I feel backpacks are such a cool element to add to an outfit. Today's post I'm sharing the new Binca Mini Backpack from JORD. If you are not familiar with the brand, I had a chance to collaborate with them before and let me tell you they have amazing watches and they have recently launched accessories including handbags. I was so excited to hear they were launching handbags because their watches were pretty amazing I just couldn't wait to see their handbag collections. The Binca backpack is cork infused and vegan leather. It's a cork -infused fabric but its super soft. This superhide premium cork leather is very durable (so scratch and tear resistant) and 100% sustainable. I feel like this chic backpack is where luxury and sustainability meet. The bag has such an edgy feminine style and it comes in two other colors. The straps are my favorite part because they have a cute gold detail. 

For today's look I paired the backpack with a jumpsuit and let me tell you, I had some serious Indiana Jones vibe. Lol! The backpack is mini but it definitely fits more than just essentials. I also love that it maintains its shape making it very structured and I think that's a great quality to make any bag look luxe. 

Like I said JORD is launching new accessories and part of their accessories they will be launching jewelry in the fall and they would love to have you give your input to their design network.
