Winter Must-Have: The Camel Coat

Photography by: Sweet Petite Photography

November went by a little too fast and oh and behold! the 20s are in full swing. It happened in a blink of an eye and I don't think I was entirely ready for it. What I definitively was ready for was to finally find that camel coat I have been looking for years. The difference was that this year I wasn't looking, I thought about it but I had not come around to properly look for the coat other than a couple of Pinterest searches.

I found this amazing camel coat at none other place than Target (duh!) when I went in for a completely unrelated thing.

Getting Ready For Our First Christmas in the Same City

2017 was a year full of surprises, changes, struggles and learnings. I am not going to lie, it did kick my butt. I try to embrace changes as much as possible but 2017 takes the cake! After many years living in different cities and traveling to see each other, my hubby and I are finally settled in Minneapolis and we are slowly but surely trying to start our own little family. And as such, this year we decided to do our own Torres-Camargo holiday cards! 

I know it may be super cheesy for some people but I find it fun to create things with our names and begin to talk about our little own family. I wasn't really sure where to start since I definitely do not have the time to design them but I wanted a design that wasn't cookie cutter and that truly reflected who we are as a family; fun, caring and modern. I found this website called Basic Invite to print out photo Christmas cards where it was super easy to find the right design,  customize it and order it. 

My Winter-Proof Skincare Routine with Olay

This is a sponsored conversation with Olay, but all opinions are my own.

Winter is one of the harshest seasons and well, living in the Midwest it’s even worst. This is my second Minnesota winter and it definitely came in a lot earlier than it did last year. The air is much colder and we even had two snow days already. Last year around this time I remember it was maybe in the 70s.

As I get used to this whole “seasons” thing I have made some tweaks in my beauty routine to get my skin ready for them, specially for winter! I started the Olay 28 Day Challenge and I really love the results. Who could have thought that just by changing my normal moisturizer for the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 in the mornings and the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel in the mornings and nights I would feel such a difference?! A simple 2 steps that I am sure is helping me get ready for a harsh winter. And you guys know that I am all about a simple skin routine. The biggest difference that I have noticed is that before when I took of my make-up and wash my face, my skin tended to feel a little tight, then I would go to bed and I usually sleep on my side; that is exactly what causes wrinkles and fine lines around my eyes. I think the constant hydration thru the day with the Olay total effects Moisturizer plus the humph of the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye gel at night really helped me avoid some fine lines.

My Faves From the Something Navy x Treasure & Bond Collection at Nordstrom

I love when bloggers turn this into something bigger than just sitting behind a computer and writing about fashion. I love when they go out there and really make it happen. They really inspire me every day to keep building my own brand.

One of my favorite bloggers; Arielle Noa from Something Navy launched her own line in collaboration with Nordstrom and Treasure & Bond about a month ago and I have to say I am obsessed! I have always loved her style and also because even though she is a HUGE influencer and blogger now, she somehow still feels relatable. She is not over produced, she is effortless, she is a mom, a wife. But mostly she is human. That is exactly why I love this collection because it reflects everything that she is, plus she can truly pull every single item she created.
