Feeling Pretty in Tulle

Well hello lovely friends! Gotta admit I've been a little overwhelmed lately with doing photography on the side, doing mom duties, and my 9-5. I'm back though with this post featuring this adorable tulle skirt that I've been searching for years for. Although I see many I really love the price for these babies has gotten expensive. With me always on budget it's hard to find a good design with the price to match. Luckily while shopping with my sister I found this jem at a boutique called Varga. They sell vintage whimsical pieces and modern clothing. I loved this skirt at first sight when I saw it at 50% OFF! I quickly tried it on and I was sold :))

Hope you enjoyed this look because it's one of my favorite classic looks I've done. Reminds me of the skirt Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex In The City! I think they're whimsical and chic. Also pretending I'm a ballerina is the best. :)) Totally feel pretty wearing one. Are you into tulle skirts? Let me know if you share my love for them in the comments. 


Love,

Hask Orchid & White Truffle Hair Care Review

Reviewing the Hask Orchid and White Truffle hair care system for you all this week! When I heard about this product I quickly jumped on the chance to review it. Thank goodness Hask said yes!! I was drawn to the product because the brand HASK is known for using unique ingredients in their products. Meaning you don't see many other brands offering what HASK does at such an affordable price. Orchid and white truffle, what? Interesting right? Read on for my review peeps! 
I'm so crazy that before I purchase any shampoo, I must first fall in love with the scent. Yes, no kidding. I'm known for opening the bottle tops just to get a good whiff, hehe! As soon as I opened the top of the Orchid & White Truffle Shampoo and conditioner, I wanted to swim in its aroma. Not only is the scent sweet and calming, but it makes me think of being in a spa. So good! I only hoped that the actual product would be as good as it smelled.

Hair System Claims
-rehydrates
-adds shine
-restores moisture to dry hair
-balance overworked hair 

Moisture Rich Shampoo
The shampoo lathers extremely well, you only need a little more than a quarter size for long hair like mine. My hair felt squeaky clean after use. My scalp did not have an irritating reaction to it whatsoever. I was worried about that since my skin and scalp are sensitive to certain brands. I was happy because this shampoo is free of sulfate, which would damage whats left of my dyed hair. My hair felt really clean and looked shinier!

 Pros 
-Free of sulfates, parabens, drying alcohol, gluten, artificial colors, and plthalates.
-Not tested on animals
-adds shine
-low price
-deep cleans

Cons:
Non

Moisture Rich Conditioner
Since my hair felt squeeky clean after the shampoo. I was afraid that the conditioner wouldn't condition it enough and my hair would end up looking stiff. This was not the case at all. I was impressed that combing through my hair even though it didn't feel super soft like my usual shampoo leaves it, it actually combed out just fine. No pulling of tugging, I combed through it perfectly fine. 

 Pros: 
-Free of sulfates, parabens, drying alcohol, gluten, artificial colors, and plthalates.
-Not tested on animals
-conditions well
-adds shine
-low price

Cons:
Non

Deep Hair Conditioning
Hask also sent me the Orchid & White Truffle deep conditioner. It is recommended you use this product twice a week to repair dry and damaged hair. I think this is a good product because I felt it offered better conditioning than the regular conditiner. It definitely worked because my hair felt a lot softer after it had dried. 

 Pros: 
-Free of sulfates, parabens, drying alcohol, gluten, artificial colors, and plthalates.
-Not tested on animals
-deep conditions 
-adds shine
-low price

Cons:
Non


Overall I highly recommend this product for the conditioning, body, and texture difference that it provided my hair. I agree with the claim that the hair care system does rehydrate, adds shine, restores moisture to dry hair, and helps to balance overworked hair.
My hair feels lighter, not as weighed down by the conditioner as it does with my usual hair product. It really does look shinier since I've been using this product. I will definitely purchase this product in the future. The frangrance gives me a calm, clean feeling when I happen to catch it throughout the day. Happy I discovered this HASK product!

You may purchase it here.

Happy Beautifying, 
Tania

The Overall Two Ways

Today's post is short and sweet because it's more on style then life. Of course I have the good old fashion overall, but styled with two types of tops. I think both are great and there are so many other kinds of tops that you can style them with. I personally went with these because I live in a warmer part of the country. 
I love both tops with these bad boys. If you do live in colder climate, a white or bright color turtleneck would be a great alternative. Which one of these looks do you prefer, or what would you wear with them? Let me know in the comments :)) Hope you are all doing wonderfully! 
XO,

It takes a Village

Super sunny days are becoming more frequent. So much so that it's driving my need to get outdoors more than ever. I love exploring nature, as well as visiting museums, discovering different artists, and visiting places I've never been before. Doing what I love is definitely becoming a balancing act! Working a full time job, doing photography on the side, blogging, parenting, all while trying to study is a balancing act for sure. It takes a lot of energy and hard work. Which brings me to the question, can we do it all? Can we do what we love, and be good at so many other important roles in our lives? 


Dress: American Apparel (similar)//Shoes: Steve Madden//Purse: Gap//Sun Glasses: Diff Eyewear

I struggle with doing my best at everything I do, which sometimes leaves me feeling drained. Do you ever feel that way? Like you are spreading yourself too thin? Well how I've been able to raise a son as a single parent, graduate college, and still be able to do the things that bring me happiness is by getting help from loved ones. 

There was a time when I didn't want help from anyone. I wanted to do it all on my own. All that got me was a panic attack during college that almost had me riding in an ambulance. I learned that I can't be Wonder Woman, although I try. :)) So to answer the question, "Can we do it all?" Yes, we can do anything we set our minds to. We just have to be creative, and have a supporting group that is more than willing to be there for us. To all my friends and family that have helped make my life all that much richer by lending their time, I am eternally greatful. Of course I will do the same for them in a heart beat, and I have. I truly believe it takes a village! 

Do you have any tricks to finding balance in your life? If you do please share!


Much Love, 
Tania

Easy Breazy

Hi beautiful people! I seem to be writing less recently on the blog, but I am super active on Instagram. I find that my love for photography and the art of it all just makes my creative juices flow. I do miss writing so much though and I wish there were more hours in the day to do it all. There is one more section for the the CSET that I have to study for to apply for my teachers credential, and I fear it because it's not my favorite subject. I have to admit I have a fear of Math, but not just your basic math, mainly Geometry. So you can say procrastination has taken over my life, but I am making progress in getting more organized. I think that will help so much, as well as planned study sessions with friends will get me more focused. Like my friend always said to me, "It takes a village..." She would know, she's a professor. I'll take that advice!

Life is about changes and it moves so rapidly. These are my thoughts daily. I try so hard to stay in the present, the struggle is real. For that reason, and so many more I give you this simple look. Hope you like the free casual vibe to it. Wish me luck on my motivation struggles. I need to get the ball rolling on my teachers credential! 


Peace, 
Tania

Oversized Jumpsuit

Wishing you all a happy Spring in my geometric jumpsuit! It makes me spring with happiness, haha. No really it does, from the inside out. As lover of jumpsuits and geometric shapes this romper is just perfection to me. It also sort of makes me feel like a powerful samurai warrior, and I like the feeling. The oversize design is free flowing, so easy to wear with different types of shoes as well. I can totally style it with tennis shoes and heels. It's just dreamy!











I also have to tell you all about my large saddle crossbody bag. I've been wanting this style for a while, and I feel so lucky I got this bag at 50% off with my Gap card. I love their sales so much, one reason I own their card. Plus I can always find great purchases there no matter what time of year. Totally one of my favorite stores. 

Hope you liked this fun look! I'm in a pretty good mood since I have Friday off this week. I'll be in the happiest place on earth this weekend with one of my favorite cousins.  I haven't been to Disneyland in about 9 years, crazy since I live in Los Angeles. It's just so pricey, but had to make an exception for the come back of the Electrical Parade this year. My sister, cousin and I used to perform it as kids infront of our family and friends. So it was a must to go see it. Do you guys have any fun Disney related stories? Share please! I am a Disney Fan through and through. Can't wait to go!


Hugs and Kisses,

Black and White is Always Right

How's it going everyone? Are you all feeling like time is flying and summer will almost be here even though we just hit Spring? That is my mind lately. I have a Spring kind of look for you with the skirt and sweater mix. One of my favorite mixes, black and white even better. Do you think you can't go wrong with black and white outfits? I do. No matter what it is such a classic and will never go out of style. I mean the high contrast of the two colors is the key in it looking so chic. I'm sharing a few tips with you all this week. These are some that I live by :)) Use them so much!

Style Tips:
1. Use a pop of red in any black and white outfit to make it fun, more interesting, and make a statement. It will make a simple outfit come to life. It can be a red lipstick, purse, of shoe. No matter what it will make the outfit standout. Also if you're not a fan of red, pink will do the same in a more subtle way. Although you can totally throw on a pop of hot pink and rock it with black and white as well!
2. Find black and white pieces with unique structure or details. This could be in the form of fringe as you see on the sweater, or imprints like on the skirt. This makes the simple outfit more unique, not just another black and white number. :))


Sweater: Banana Republic//Skirt: Tahari (similar)//Boots: Gap (similar)
I used this cool building design with red square structures to make my outfit pop! I am a red and pink lippy girl most days :)) It just complements a simple outfit so well! 

Hope you are all doing fantastic, and life is being good to you. I'm getting ready for my son to graduate from High School, and I'm feeling nostalgic about his Elementary years. Wahhhhh! It's okay though, I feel proud of the young man he has become. Time for me to let go of the ropes, haha! He will always be my baby though. Okay enough about me and my corny self. Tell me anything new with you? Comment below and let me know.


P.S. My stuff is selling super cheap on Poshmark right now, go there and check it out. I want to clear my closet, so I've listed most things $9-$15 dollars. :)) I'll be posting more clothes throughout the week.

Much Love, 
Tania
