Main skin care products to start using before 30

Hello Lovelies! I'm beyond thrilled to share all of the new products that I have been recently using with you!
A few months ago, I started noticing how my skin was changing due to the cold weather patterns. In order to survive the winter, I had to start taking better care of my skin. I’m way more aware of the condition of my skin and I believe that if I can do something to avoid having a wrinkly skin in the future, I should start doing it now when I can!

I love Parisian products because I know how well they are made and how much precision goes into every aspect of their production. More than ever, I’m happy to say that Darphin products are my new obsession, specially since I was suffering from very dry skin in my nose and cheekbone area. I first started using the 8-flower nectar which is a face oil and helps hydrate my skin and gives it a youthful glow. Every morning, I used this oil elixir after washing my face. The skin texture you are left with after using the oil is almost like baby skin, so smooth! And something else that I love about this product is that it leaves your skin smelling so good for another 3 hours, it smells like pure nature to me... so so good!

After a couple of days though, I started using my Darphin skin care products the way you are supposed to use them: in order.

1. Starting with the Hydraskin Light Gel Cream, to make sure my skin is kept moisturized all day! This gel cream is not all greasy at all, which is my favorite thing about this product. Then, 

2. The Aromatic Cleansing Balm, to take my makeup off which also leaves a little moisture behind. This product was the first cream-based makeup remover I started using, but it works wonders and takes all of the makeup off, so it’s perfect!

3. Third step in this routine is the Intral Redness Relief Soothing Serum. I don't use it every day, but when I feel like I have exposed my skin to long hours of makeup, this is fundamental for me to use. 

The Intral Redness Relief Soothing Serum takes away irritation that sometimes goes unnoticed; but is reflected on the skin days after, when a new pimple appears and who wants that? No one!

At nighttime,  
4. I start with the Aromatic Purifying Balm, this product functions as an overnight detox treatment to clarify and purify the skin.

5. The last thing, is the 8- Flower Nectar Oil  that I first mentioned. 
Lastly, with all of these products, some function better when we apply them with the massaging expert; the Sonic Expert also works as a cleanser, but specially for this one it is important to change it to the cleansing brush! They both come in the same package so no worries, you don't need to buy it extra!

Thanks so much for reading,
Wish you all a nice Sunday!

New sport release from Adore Me

Hi Lovelies!
The first thing I do every morning is working out, so exercise is obviously a priority in my life. It is essential for me to feel comfortable, but also to like what I’m wearing. When it comes to workout clothes, mixing and matching my exercise combo with my sneakers is very important, as well as considering different aspects such as how well the clothing washes, and it not catching a bad odor after several uses. 

I chose three sets from AdoreMe, each one came with the sports legging and 2 of them with the sports bra and for the last one I decided to pair it with a pink cotton shirt.

I received this box a couple of weeks ago, and after different training sessions I gotta say I loved it. They are very comfortable, trendy and they don´t suffocate you during exercises that require stretching! These are the categories I review sports clothing lines on: how much they stretch, how comfty they are, fabric quality as well as style. Since I jump, ran and lift, these are all of my requirements for a good morning workout.

Wish you a nice day!

Irresistible Me Hair Curler Review


Good Morning girls! I’m so excited to share today this new product which I’m currently obsessed with, even though I feel that it is important to make clear that besides sharing different kind of collabs, I only promote the brands and products that I love and if I don’t like what they have I would rather not participate. With this being said, several days ago, I tried the IrresistibleMe Moonstone Curler. When it comes to my hair, considering the fact my hair is very straight, waves are an easy way to give volume and a very polished look.  I love to have a different hairdo especially on the weekends and special festivities like Christmas, new years, my birthday, etc.
There are many things that I love about this curler. Some of the advantages are: it is very easy to use and light to carry. But my favorite thing so far about this product is that you have a wide array of temperatures to choose from; this turns out to be fundamental because I personally don’t like to expose my hair to crazy temperatures since its damaging in the long run and neither should you!
My second positive point on the Moonstone is that after your sectioned piece of hair is ready and all curled up it rings. Even though after a while the sound might become a little bit annoying, but it is tolerable.

Finally, the thing that I love the most is it makes the curls very loose and you can also choose how loose you want your curls: (12 seconds for more defined curls, 10 in between of soft curls and waves and 8 for loose curls, more like waves), If you are the type girl who loves the perfect waves, this is the type of curler you need to get.

Thanks for reading!

Colombia Travel Diary


I never imagined that I could missed my home so much, coming to my country on the holidays season I must say was the best therapy and the best way to start this 2017. I have done so much things because every minute and second with my family it´s counted! As you guys may know, this winter season has been one of the craziest ones talking about Vancouver, so this summer weather was more than a blessing to me.

 I enjoyed my visit to Cartagena which I had mention before, is a total paradise! As also tanning, eating all the cravings I had and (still have some to accomplish), but in the main all these had made me think on how valuable are these moments with the ones you love, specially for those who are living far away from home. I´m excited to go back to Canada, but for this year I really don´t know when I will be able to come back to Colombia again, as I will be graduating this year, so I must enjoy every second I still have left!
