My Trip to Hawaii #WaikikiTrip #Oahu

For my birthday which was this past March, my boyfriend and I decided to take a vacation to Hawaii. We opted to visit the island of Oahu since it's the most popular island. Waikiki is such a beautiful place - I fell in love! We were there for only four days, so we wanted to do as much activities as we could.

VIVE Hotel Waikiki

Choosing a hotel/resort can easily become a hassle. So when I was planning my most recent vacation to Hawaii, I did a lot of research because although I knew I wasn't going to spend much time at the hotel, I wanted to make sure that my nights of sleep were perfect. After reading many hotel reviews, I made the choice of booking 4 nights at the VIVE Hotel Waikiki. The hotel is Waikiki's newest lifestyle boutique hotel which offers 125 stylish brand new rooms which will make your visit to the islands a much more pleasant one.

Now that my youngest brother is is getting older, I decided it was time to get him a new phone. Of course, with so many smart-phones and plans out on the market, I wasn't sure what I should purchase. After deciding that a prepaid plan was the best choice for my brother, I headed to my local Walmart to look for the perfect smart-phone and plan.

Where Have I Been???

Hi beauties!!! Some of you have probably been wondering why I haven't been posting as often. As much as I miss blogging, I haven't been able to due to health reasons related to my pregnancy. Yes, I am preggos with my first child and although it hasn't been easy, I am HAPPY and I wouldn't trade  this journey. From the moment I knew I had a little one growing inside of me, my life has changed. I feel such a strong connection with my baby and I can't wait to meet him. Yes, I am expecting a BOY!!

Christmas Family Traditions #LBCMoreMerry

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Sears and Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions are mine. 

Christmas time brings beautiful childhood memories shared with my late abuela. On the morning of Noche Buena, I remember getting up super early and going into her bedroom to wake her so that we could get the tamales started. Chopping vegetables all while listening to stories from my abuela were the best. As the day progressed so did the rest  of the preparations. Food, decorations, drinks, gifts, music -- they all made the ambiance perfect. 
My favorite part of the night was breaking the piñatas, they brought so much joy to my cousins and I. The piñatas were filled with small toys, fruits, candy and even money!! I loved picking up everything I could and sharing with my little cousins who were too young to get their own. 
Although my grandmother is no longer here, the memories and traditions continue to be shared amongst my family. Each Holiday season we celebrate her life by continuing our family traditions. Also, thanks to my Abuela I love shopping at Sears during the Holiday season. That was her favorite place to shop for all of her grandchildren's gifts. She always found the perfect gifts at even better 
prices.This season, Sears has teamed up with The Huffington Post to share Latino Holiday traditions. Do you have any  Holiday traditions that you will pass on to your children? Please share!!

Crazy for Metallics

The holiday season is upon us and New Year’s Eve is just around the corner! It’s definitely not too early to start looking for some  stylish outfits to ring in the new year! I thought it would be fun to create a wishlist (emphasis on wish!) of some fun, trendy pieces that scream party.

Admittedly, most of these items are considerably out of my budget, but I have a couple of alternatives ready to go. Instead of those *chokes* $1110 metallic leggings, try these from American Apparel or, for the plus size crowd, these ones from Roamans. For the dress, either of these from Forever 21 should fit the bill: one and two.

Now for the options that are actually in the above collage:

So, what do you think of the metallic trend?

Style Your Hair With Conair #heartmyhair

I am not the best at styling my hair, so finding tools that make hair styling easier is always a plus. During a recent trip to Walmart, I spotted the Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret and the Infiniti Pro by Conair 3Q Brushless Motor Dryer. With both tools, I am able to create easy hair styles that can be  both for day and night.
