How to// Grow your lashes naturally

Tuesday, September 27, 2016


One of the things that I love the most about a person is long lashes but sadly I wasn't gifted with this, but recently I found a way to grow them naturally and this works!. I wasn't very "excited" to try this because I didn't believe in it, but one day I was like "ok, whatever let's try it" and I am obsessed with this and is one of my steps now on my night routine. 

wear the trend // Layer-y slip dress

Friday, September 23, 2016


One of the biggest trends right now is the layer-y slip dress, basically is that you wear a t-shirt under a dress. This trend is perfect for the summer - fall transition, because you can change the t-shirt for a sweater and you won't be too cold for the day, I have seen this combo with sneakers, high heels, sandals and even over the knee boots, so don't overthink about using this trend because is very versatile and you can adapt it to your style.

wear the trend // Denim jacket with patches

Wednesday, September 14, 2016


Wear the trend: Denim w/ patches

One of the things I have seen on instagram, facebook and so many bloggers wearing are the denim jackets with patches/pins, especially in New York Fashion Week people was using this trend a lot, and I think is pretty cool, and an accesory like this can give life to a "normal" or "boring" outfit. I would wear it with an all black ootd so the jacket is the main piece or "the center of attention". I haven't find one here so I think I will get a normal jacket and do a little DIY which is the perfect option for you if you can't find one you like or you want to save some money.

How to | Get the perfect red lip

Thursday, September 01, 2016


One of the most classic thing a girl can do is to use red lips and I love it. Often I see coments about the color skin and the lipstick color and yes that's true some colors don't look really good in some color skins. For example, I stay away from nude tones that aren't pink-ish because I am so pale that if I uses that color I will look "dead" but when it comes to red I use prettu much any color even the darkest because I am a huge believer that this color brings elegance and feminism to any look and this is how I apply it and it lasts me for hours; here are 4 steps for the perfect red lip:

Favorites Looks | Cara Delevingne

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Once a month I will be sharing my favorites looks from different famous people, either actresses, bloggers, singers or models. For this month I wanted to do Cara because let's be honest besides her eyebrows, her style is pretty cool somedays she's more tomboy and others she is completely feminine and her style is really easy to copy so why not?


Color Correction Guide

Tuesday, August 02, 2016

In the past 2 years -maybe- I've been seen this color correcting technic all over YouTube, and I decided to give it a try, even though I don't have really bad dark circles but because I'm so pale you can see even the lightest decoloration in my skin, so I decided to try and I like. I don't want to say that I love it because I love the natural look and felt my skin with "too much" makeup for my liking, buut I want to explain what this is.

TRAVEL DIARY | Quindio - Colombia

Thursday, July 14, 2016 Quindío, Colombia

*Valle del Cocora*

Last week my mom, sister and I decided to spend some time with my uncle in Barcelona, is a little town in Quindio that anywhere you look the only thing you see is coffee and platano cultivation, the weather is warm but the nights are a little bit chilly. Besides coffe and platano, you can also find a lot of "chalets" (rental houses for a little vacation) and they are extremely cute and perfect for a getaway.

TIPS | Clear & Soft skin

Wednesday, March 16, 2016


Hi guys, recently I've been breaking out a lot, so I decided to try a few "natural" mask at home, and by far this one is my favorite, I absolutely loved it and after I washed my skin was so soft and clear that I couldn't believe it. 

First, you are going to open your pores with steam or soak a towel in hot water and put it on the area you want (obviously, just in your face) -Be careful while working with hot water or hot pots- Here's what you need for the mask:

1 tbsp of baking soda
1 tbsp of tooth paste 
A few drops of water
Tooth brush


After you have the pores open, you are going to grab the mix (the mix has to be a little bit liquid but not too much, like a soft paste) with the tooth brush and apply it in circular motions, after a few minutes of doing this, wash it with cold water and there you go. The redness will take a couple of minutes to go away.

TIPS:
- Be gentle to your skin while you do it, because the products that have the tooth paste will make your skin red
- Just do it on your face.
- Do it once a week or every 2 weeks if your skin is sensible.

Hola, recientemente me he estado brotando demasiado, así que decidí intentar unas mascarillas "naturales" en casa y esta fue mi favorita, la adore completamente y despues de lavarla, mi piel estaba tan suave y limpia que no lo podia creer.

Primero vas a abrir tus pores con vapor o puedes sumergir una toalla en agua caliente y ponerla sobre el area que quieras (obviamente, solo en la cara) -Se cuidados@ cuando trabajas con agua caliente y ollas calientes- Esto es lo que necesitas para la mascarilla:

1 cucharada de bicarbonato de sodio
1 cucharada de crema dental
Unas cuantas gotas de agua
1 cepillo de dientes

Despues de que hayas abierto tus poros, vas a coger la mezcla (la mezcla tiene que ser un poco liquida pero no mucho, como una pasta pero suave) con el cepillo de dientes y aplicarlo en forma circular, despues de unos minutos haciendo esto, lavalo con agua fria y ahi tienes. El enrojecimiento va a tomar unos pocos minutos para desaparecer.

TIPS:
- Se cuidadoso con tu piel mientras lo haces, porque los productos que contiene la crema dental van a poner tu piel roja.
- Solo hazlo en tu rostro.
- Hazte la mascarilla una vez a la semana o cada dos semanas si tu piel es demasiado sensible.

Lots of love,
Gabriela.
