Adding Back Spring Vibes

Photography by: Angel Torres

Well, Spring has finally sprung in the Twin Cities and I could not be more excited about it! After 2 feet of snow last weekend, hitting 60 degrees today felt like paradise. This winter felt like it was 30 years long so I am so excited to revamp my Spring wardrobe and the scents I've been using. 

Each season has its charm, it's smells, and it's vibe. But I personally love spring and all the new life that brings. This year I'm really into spring dresses; perhaps not the traditional colors but anything flirty and light like this polka dot wrap dress. I paired it with this straw hat and bag because don't they just scream summer?! And no look is complete without the perfect scent to go with it so for this look I decided to use the Caress Sweet Violet Botanical Body Spray because I am a sucker for musky scents and I felt like it went perfect with the dress!

For some reason I'm still in love with ruffles so I'll be wearing them probably all Spring and Summer long. I do love new takes on the typical ruffle like this stripe top with a version of a cold shoulder and a deep V both in the front and the back. I've also been loving banana leaf prints so this shoes seemed like the cherry on top for the outfit. Another scent that I am loving From Caress is the Mediterranean Lotus Body Spray that has a base note of Amber and I really fell in love with it as soon as I smelled it, just so perfect for the season!

Mixing and matching is always fun, and scents are no exception! I've mixed this two sometimes just to give it an extra umf and a very personalized touch to my look. Make sure to check out all the yummy Caress Body Sprays at Walgreens and have fun mixing them to create your own scent!

Making Your Way Back Into Fitness Less Painful

Photography by: Angel Torres

My fitness journey has been like a roller coaster. I hit an all-time high and then I get sick or I have to travel and that’s the end of that. I think consistency has been an issue for me ever since I can remember, even if I try. But now that I’m about to turn 32 and hopefully start a family soon, I want to break old bad habits and “adult” more.

I don’t work out to lose weight, thankfully I don’t need to. I work out for mental health and as a stress reducer. I took a looooong break from it because I was focusing on some other areas in my life but about 2 weeks ago as I was going to bed I thought to myself “maybe tomorrow I’ll work out” and the thought grew overnight and, in the morning, I was actually pretty excited about it.

Inspired by "The Women I Work With"

I am lucky to be surrounded by amazing women. BAS ASS WOMEN. Women that have showed me how to be tough but professional, to rock presentations and productions while rocking a baby bump and looking amazing while doing it.

But that has not always been the case. We live in a men's world and we all know that but I am so glad to be part of a generation that said "Enough!" and armed themselves to be the change the world desperately needed. Initially I wanted this blog post to be about the amazing sense of fashion that this girl bosses have but as I was writing it, it felt off. It felt like something more important was missing and I was completely reducing them to their sense of fashion. Which, don't get me wrong I do believe that success and a good sense of fashion and self care go hand in hand but it is not the only thing that matters.
