Miles + Home: Balcony Makeover with Home Depot

April 17, 2017


I am beyond excited to partner up with The Home Depot to do a major makeover to our balcony! I have been in Minneapolis for almost six months already (how time flies!) and Spring has finally sprung!

Check out my post on their blog to see how I got my little space from nothing to this little happiness nook. I truly enjoyed this project specially realizing how much little details truly can change an entire space!


Miles + Beauty: Finding self-love in natural care products

April it's Earth month, so I wanted to dedicate some of this month’s post to mother earth and how can we make better decisions for our bodies that also entail better decisions for our planet.

This time I want to talk about how choosing better products for our personal care, also mean self-love and finding ways to be more natural and intentional about the brands you use.
A couple of years back in Austin, I became very conscious and careful with each and every product I used. From cleaning items, to personal care items, make-up, food, pretty much everything.

Miles + Travel: Keep calm and keep traveling with Dove

February 15, 2017
This is part of a sponsored collaboration with the Dove and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

I know I have been MIA from the blog, how crazy is it that it has been almost 3 months since my last post! I feel so guilty, but I promise I will try to keep up more often.


So why have I been away for so long? Well, as you may remember I told you guys I got a new job at Target. Well the first months were a bit easier so I had time for the blog and my YouTube channel. But it seems since the beginning of January my job just took over my life. I’m not going to lie, I am struggling to find a middle happy ground where I have the job of my dreams and keep doing the blog which is what I love to do. Still working at it.


At the beginning of January I had to travel to New York for a shoot of my very first Target project. SO FUN! With small hiccups like almost breaking my foot while bowling before the trip and getting my purse stolen at a sketchy bar in East Williamsburg, but fun nonetheless! After that I got pulled into 2 (seems like 3 now) more projects, oh gosh!


Add to the mix that my hubby - FINALLY- made the decision to move to Minneapolis with me! That’s right, no more long distance for us! So I decided to fly to Miami to help him sort out, getting rid of and packing his stuff. As I was planning that trip, I got hit with some news that I had been invited to be a judge for the Addys in the Miami chapter (a local advertising award show) so that meant I was coming home for 4 days to then go back to Miami for the weekend.



Miles + Beauty: Love and take care of the skin you’re in

I have been using religiously the Neutrogena® Light Therapy Mask for a bit over a month now and wanted to give you guys an update on the treatment.

The weather in Minneapolis has been colder and colder. I just survived my first polar vortex in the Midwest so I guess it's a big milestone! Some of my friends here in Minneapolis have been having trouble with their skin and I truly thought I was going to have a tougher time since I'm not used to this. Make no mistake, your skin suffers so much in extreme temperatures if you don't take care of it.

Miles + Holidays: Learning to do my own floral arrangements

As the holidays get closer, I wanted to learn to do my own floral arrangements. I tried a couple of online tutorials but well, did not go quite as planned. So I started a quest because I really wanted to learn the right way! I found out that Field of Flowers in Florida have this cute little corner called The FlowerBar where they host private classes! BOOM! It was quite perfect since I was heading down there for Thanksgiving.


They have a variety of classes you can take, you can see their schedule here. I love that you can bring your own wine bottles and make it a date with your girls! Or you can even make it an event at work because they do host corporate parties as well! I went on a Saturday Morning and had the pleasure of having Martha as my teacher. We created this gorgeous piece, that of course you can adapt to more holiday like colors. I honestly chose this colors because they are my fave, but instead of the pink roses you could do red roses and instead of the purple flowers you can substitute it for greenery.

Miles + Travel: Brunching in Miami with Geneva Naturals

December 12, 2016

A week ago while I was in Miami visiting my hubby, I had the opportunity to have brunch with some of Miami’s best-known bloggers. It was an incredible day filled with fascinating conversations, lots of fun stories, and even some product sampling from Geneva Naturals. The event was held at DOA Cantina on South Beach (around 20th and Collins Ave), which apparently is a brand new spot which, features a mixture of Peruvian and Asian infused flavors. I cannot say this enough: the food was out-of-this-world amazing!

Unique Watch

This post was sponsored by JORD Wood Watches 
The holidays are almost here! and to be honest its a lot easier to get a gift for a woman than for a man. Probably because there are many options that are more obvious. But when it comes to finding cool gifts for that special man in your life you may be at a loss, because perhaps you don't know where to start. 

So if your man is anything like my hubby, loves technology and gadgets but has a very peculiar taste when it comes to gifts, here are the top 3 gifts for the unconventional man in your life.

The beautiful JORD Wood Watches. While a watch is always a great gift idea, this watch it’s a little extra special. This specific men’s watch is made out of Ebony and Rosewood woods, giving it those gorgeous tones. It’s also hand finished and penetrated with tung oils for preservation. While it is splash-proof is not to be dunk in water so make sure your man doesn’t go for a swim with it!
