Our First Family Photoshoot

I love when family and friends share their family portraits - they're so beautiful! So, a few weeks ago, my family and I headed out to Yorba Linda Park with Alfred from Alfred's Photography. Nathaniel fell asleep on the way so when we got there, he wasn't in his best mood. But after a few shots, we got some decent shots. I love photographing Nathaniel because I know that he's growing too fast and I want to have as many photos as possible.

Tarte Limitless Lippies deluxe tarteist™ Creamy Matte Lip Paint Set

I've been seeing a lot of great holiday sets out and if you're like me and like to save a few bucks then this is the perfect time to purchase from different brands and get great value. I love buying sets because I get to try different products without having to shell out too much. One of the sets that I set my eyes on is the Tarte Limitless Lippies deluxe tarteist™ Creamy Matte Lip Paint Set. I love liquid matte lipsticks and I love Tarte so I knew I had to get my hands on this set. The set has eight mini lippies for $42 and the shades range from natural to bold. I've worn all shades a few times and I can say that although I like the shades, I think the formula can be improved, here's why.

K-beauty Regimen #LovingLANEIGE

This post was created in partnership with LANEIGE as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own.

I love wearing makeup, but here and there, I enjoy rocking a bare face so that my skin can breathe. Our skin endures quite a lot - sun exposure, pollutants, and makeup causing our skin to take a toll. That is why I make sure to use products that provide great treatment. After doing some research, I found out that Korean skincare regimes are the most popular offering skin the time and care it deserves. For this reason, I partnered with LANEIGE to share with you the Perfect Renew line and the “Power of 7” K-beauty regimen. I have incorporated the “Power of 7” K-beauty regimen thanks to LANEIGE and I have to tell you that it has improved my overall skin condition. Here is what the regime consists of CLEANSE, CLARIFY, BALANCE, TREAT, MOISTURIZE, REVIVE, PROTECT.

Coloring My Hair at Home PLUS GIVEAWAY #ColorConfidently

This post was developed in partnership with Clairol Nice’n Easy, as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

When it comes to my son I'm on top of everything. I try to expose him to different activities and surroundings as much as I can. Now when it comes to myself, it's a different story. There have been times when I plan on starting a new activity or set up a challenge for myself but those never happen. Whether it be taking signing up for a photography class or taking a walk by myself, I tend to not let it happen mostly because I have to admit that it's a bit difficult to deviate from the norm. After reading and having talks with friends, I have to admit that there is nothing wrong with being a little selfish and doing things that I enjoy, alone.

A Day at the LA County Fair

Year after year, I've heard about the LA County Fair, its amazing food, and family fun. But it wasn't until last Sunday that I got the opportunity to attend the fair. The fair takes place in Pomona, Ca at the Fairplex grounds. Before hitting the road, I searched online to find the best deal. We ended up purchasing the tickets from Cardenas Market. The adult tickets were $12 and children, ages 6-12, were $6. Not bad considering that regular admission price is $20 for adults and $12 for children.LA COUNTY FAIR 2016
