Where to get Plastic Vinyl Leggings?

I never thought I would ever receive so many questions about an item that I'm wearing, but I guess these PVC leggings are quite popular these days.

The truth is that they are and look super cool,  I honestly love them, they make your legs to look amazing and my favorite thing is how warm they are, I got mine from Femme Luxe, they have so many cool items on their website, I discovered them a couple of months back.

To be honest, these days have been hectic to me, I'm currently packing/moving from the apartment that I'm living right now to start my own venture which makes me feel super excited!

I thought of sharing my favorite websites with all different prices so you can shop for your favorite option!

Trends This Fall: All About Neutrals

I had the chance to assist to Aimee Song's Fall Trend event last Sunday and I got to tell you guys that the major trend for this Fall is all in Neutrals. 
Brown, nude, camel and white are the 4 main colors that you guys will see a lot in this season, the same goes with accessories, and let's not forget about the boots.
 If you wanted to purchase any snake print-related last year this is the time to do it because they are coming back!
We will see many high knee boots in this print as also flat boots and don't forget about sneakers, they will be trending as well.

Another recommendation for this and any season is to buy the essential colors, this will make you save not only money but also time, white looks good with everything and this coat speaks Fall for itself, I also tried to mix my accessories accordingly with the season, I recently got the most beautiful bag from Forzieri, it is perfect for the season and they also have all kind of designer bags, including Moschino, Gucci, YSL, etc... it was really hard to pick this one because they have so many options on their website.

In case you are still wondering what to shop for the Fall, I'm linking my recommendations down below

I Customized This Jumpsuit Online and This Is What Happened

You guys know how much I love a white look.
Neutrals are always a thing to me and this jumpsuit was so easy to style, it is very elegant, versatile, and the trousers are amazing, the length and style make you look taller and the accessories are always a plus.
I was heading to an event that day, I wanted to look elegant but I also wanted to feel comfortable, I got to change my shoes after, but this was definitely a good choice considering that this jumpsuit stretches a lot so it was easy for me to move, sit down and do all my daily tasks properly without any difficulty.
Nowadays, buying online is one of the best things, honestly, I have found so many good things on websites lately and I really feel the need to share with you guys this brand because you are able to customize all the things you pick and this is how I got this jumpsuit the way I wanted, I choose the cleavage, sleeves and the length on the trousers in Eshakti 
 I also want to share similar options to get this look:

We all know Monochrome Polka Dots...
The trend that keeps coming back year after year.

If you love Polka Dots as much as I do make sure to follow this slide plus I'm also sharing this classic outfit idea that you can easily wear for work/brunch/dinner.

Places to Have a Good Cup of Coffee in Vancouver

As a proud Colombian, Coffee for me is one of the main things that I need to get every day before getting things done. 
In a city like Vancouver, coffee places are so popular. I've seen a lot of people that make this their workplace so here are my favorite spots not only for their coffee but for space, service, and quality overall.

Very calm place, great breakfast, and amazing coffee.
Located inside the JW Marriot Parq 
Address: 39 Smithe St, Vancouver, BC.

2. Dalina
They have opened different locations around the city.
They have great sandwiches and a good variety of healthy snacks.
The place itself is great, easy to chat and work inside.
Their main location is at 687 Main St, Vancouver B.C

I personally love this place because it reminds me of the coffee shops in France.
This place is always so busy because their menu is incredible. 
Love their coffee and their marble tables.
They are located in 4393 St. George St, Vancouver, B.C

This is one of the newest coffee shops in Vancouver.
I would say that this place is more likely to hang out with friends when you want to chat and have coffee + treats.
They play Latin music inside and it's amazing, love the vibe and also is perfect for pictures.
Their bread is homemade, so good.
Location 1399 Commercial Dr. Vancouver, B.C

This place is honestly incredible, they have a great variety of coffees.
I've worked and I've also had brunch a couple of times here and it never disappoints.
Is always very busy, most like in the mornings.

They have two locations: One in Yaletown, 1088 Homer St, Vancouver, B.C
The other one is in the South of Granville (newest point) 3070 Granville St, Vancouver, B.C

I enjoy stopping by this place a lot because I love seating outdoors especially in the Summer.
I love to get the almond latte in size Large and it's always so good.
Is a great place to eat, chat and also for work.
Location 769 Hornby St, Vancouver, B.C

Best Moisturizers, For Day and Night

Searching for a good moisturizer is no easy thing especially if we consider the fact that we all have different types of skin.
I have to say that I've been in this search for quite a long time now and I finally can say that I have found my two favorite ones.

What main aspects you need to consider when picking one?
First, evaluate your skin type. I have combination skin which is not oily or dry, is just normal. It also depends on the season, these two products are mainly for Summer.  
Second, I like to split my skincare for day and night.
I hate to apply thick creams during the day as I also apply SPF so I try to avoid to mix oily things together... its all about balance.

Honestly, I started using the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel since I was 17, although I stopped using it for a while because I wanted to give a try to other moisturizers out there, but I got back to this one a year ago as I really love the way it leaves my skin during the day.

I have heard that many people love to use this one for the night as well, but I like to use something with deeper hydration and that's why I love using the Darphih Hydraskin Light Cream

This Darphin cream is light as well but I feel it's way more oily and perfect for the night routine as I complement it with a Vitamin C serum and the Essential Oils from Darphin too.

Last year I had an Acné phase that lasted me about 6 months and this is when I got back to this cream because I felt the other moisturizers were too oily for my condition so if you are going through this I recommend the Clinique cream but not the Darphin one.

Finding these two products is very easy, they are available in many drug stores and other stores like Sephora.

Summer Essentials, What I Like To Keep Inside My Bag

With beach days calling, I want to share some of the few things that I like to keep inside my bag these days.

There are 5 main things for me:
1. A good Sunscreen, I feel this is the #1 essential. 
I started using Neutrogena Hydro Boost since last year and it has been the best sunscreen because is not greasy, doesn't have any smell and it also helps to hydrate your skin, is really amazing.

2. My one and only wave spray from The Ouai
 Keeps my effortless waves on fleek.

3. A good Hair Pin to avoid having all the hair in my face.
 I got a really nice combo in Amazon here is the link: Amazon Hair Pins
 I'm also linking more in the shop box down below.

4. My monthly scent from Skylar
I always love to keep one bottle inside my bag. 
Receiving these seasonal fragrances is so on point, the size is so practical that they travel with my everywhere.
5. The Anti-Frizz Sheets from The Ouai
These sheets are lifesavers, the fact that I can take one sheet with me whenever I feel that my hair is getting frizzy is amazing, I don't need any iron machine in my bag because this little thing gets the job done in seconds.
