August 2016 - Miles + Smiles







Staying safe while online shopping for the big day!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of CHASE. The opinions and text are all mine. 

One of the biggest things to stress about while planning a wedding is money. Sadly, a day that special relies heavily on some sort of a budget. Whether big or small, this day is tied to a number.

As you all know by now, my fiance’ and I decided to get married this Fall and we actually wanted to! Not only because we have a lot going on in the first half of the year (family birthdays, anniversaries, etc), but also because we think it’s one of the best seasons. Our venue had an AMAZING off-season rate and that was the reason we decided to book Villa Woodbine. The house is incredible and they take care of absolutely everything from catering to valet. They even provide a beautiful clear tent with A/C, which in Miami is an absolute steal!


Must-haves to feel your very best

I’m very happy and excited to partner up with Dove to bring to you my must-haves to feel my very best everyday. While a big part of feeling your best is your confidence, some beauty or personal care products can help the cause, and we all like to have that little “umph” to take us to the next level of confidence!

I have a very simple daily beauty routine because, well, I have a full-time job. Each thing that I decide to include in it has to have a very specific purpose, and I must be able to count on it to work all day long. From my makeup to my personal care products I always make sure to use the best, and by best I don’t mean expensive. You guys already know that I don’t do expensive and even more so now that my wedding is around the corner.


Miles + Smiles turns one! Cheers!

How crazy it is that its been a whole year since I began my blog?! From the very bottom of my heart I want to thank each one of you, my readers, for coming with me on this journey.

A lot has happened this year. Now, a month away from tying the knot, I reflect back to all the big and small moments that made me start Miles + Smiles. So you all know, Miles + Smiles started because I simply needed an outlet to vent; a way to deal with my long distance relationship. But, then the blog grew and eventually, my fiancée and I were able to close the distance. A lot of people continued to ask: Ok, so now what is the blog going to be about? Are you going to change the name? At the beginning, my answer was a simple “I don’t know” -- I wanted to let the blog evolve into whatever it needed to be.


8 Steps to a Back-to-School-Proof Makeup Routine

While I am not in school anymore, (or at least for now, because I do plan to go back at some point) I know many of you are still in college, or even high school. I’ve partnered up with essence cosmetics at Target to share with you my everyday look and inspire you to get a fresh and easy look for back-to-school.

As you know, I’m no beauty expert, but I want to share what’s working for me and that I think will benefit you. My go-to place for most of my makeup is Target. Not only am I obsessed with the store, but it gives me a one-stop place to get everything I need, from home needs and wedding decor, to cute outfits and, well, beauty. I am not a huge fan of the super expensive makeup. While I get why some people buy it, I am pinching pennies for my wedding and am honestly not ready to give up my money on just makeup. So when I heard about essence cosmetics I decided to give them a try.
