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

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. 

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. 

First look: Easy Bun 

Step 1: Dry hair using the Infinity Pro 3Q Brushless Motor Dryer.
Step 2: Once hair is completely dry, brush it backwards into a high ponytail. 
Step 3: Add texture and volume to the bottom of the ponytail using the Conair Professional Round-Brush
Step 4: Using the Conair-Styling-Essentials-Bobby-Pins place your hair in a bun until you achieve your desired bun. 

Hairstyle #2: Night-time

Step 1: Brush hair through to make sure that there are no tangles. Then begin working in sections. If you want more defined curls, then grab smaller sections. Let the Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret do all the work as it draws the hair in to the chamber.
 Step 2: Once hair is as desired apply choice of hair spray so that hair can stay in place. 
I love the results I am able to achieve with these tools. Especially with the holidays around the corner, I know that I'll be attending a few cocktail parties after work. So being able to easily go from a day to night-time look without taking too much time is something very necessary for me. Also, these would be perfect for gifting to someone on your Christmas list. These and more Conair hair tools can be found at Walmart. 
I would love to see any hairstyles you create using these tools! 

Haul: Sephora VIB Sale

Who doesn't love a sale?? I know I do! I recently took a trip to Sephora and took advantage of their VIB sale which gives 20% off any purchase. If you want me to do any reviews on any of these products, let me know. I will gladly do so.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks

I've tried many types of lipsticks, but never any liquified lipsticks, of course, there's always a first time for everything. Too Faced recently sent me a few products from their Holiday collection along with some of their new Melted Liquified Lipsticks and I was excited to try them. 

Nume Holiday Catalog

I can't believe the holiday season is almost here. I don't know about you, but I have already started my gift list. I want to make sure this year I am prepared -- unlike last year! For the person who loves hair tools and all things beauty, you'll sure find something to love from the #NUMESTYLE Holiday catalog. For example, the classic 13mm curling wand is only $25 this week and if you use the code FEARLESS you can unlock an additional 10%!! 


Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick

Although I love wearing dark lipstick during fall, I also can't help to wear a bright pink shade here and there. During one of my recent trips to Sephora, I picked up a new lipstick from the New Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick collection. The shade I purchases is Backstage Bambi. According to the Sephora website, this shade is a matte vivid hot pink.
