Summer Maxi, Summer Blessings

My obsession with maxi dresses continues.  Well I wouldn't really say its an obsession but more of fascination.  I really do love wearing maxi dresses, they are great for many occasions.  This past weekend I wore another maxi dress for my nephews baptism.  I was chosen to be his god-mother, which is a honor  and blessing for me, since his mom is also my god-daughter.  His mom knows what a great god-mother I am and she wanted the same for her son.  Sorry had to toot my own horn for a bit. We had a small simple ceremony and party afterwards to celebrate. I don't have many pictures of me and him or the outfit.  It was a hot day and he was all over the place.  The picture below is the only one I got with him, right after I dressed him for the baptism.  It was a hot day and the dress kept me cool and comfy, for the entire day.  I'm with my god-son Aries, this is the only picture he stood still for the entire day. Aries was a little angle in his white outfit  (doesn't he look cute with the white converse) The white high top converse was my idea!

I love the versatility of maxi dresses, for all occasions they can make you look great.  I wore this floral maxi dress from Style & Co found at Macy's.  The print and ruffle detail caught my attention at the store. Once I tried it on, I knew this was the the dress. It fit and felt great, perfect for this occasion  It was the first dress I tried on when shopping for the baptism.  Over all I was happy with the look, got my hair braided at a salon across the street from my apt.  I wanted a nice summer look that was a little more dressy than your everyday casual maxi.  The makeup I used was from the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess collection to finish off my entire look. 

So what do you think of my look?  Are you loving maxi dresses as much as I do?

Trendy Thursday: Summer Shorts

Weather is heating up, it's time to show off those sexy legs! OK even if you don't have sexy legs, this hot weather calls for shorts. Between 4th of July, BBQ's and trips to the beach, you need to have a good pair of shorts to get you through the summer. I personally love denim shorts, and now you can get some really cute shorts in prints, and styles. The latest style trend is prints and shorts are no exception. You can find any type of print to fit your style, for all your summer time needs. Grab your sandals, sunnies and a tote, you will be ready for any summer time activities. 

Here are some of my favorite shorts to keep your legs cool and looking hot all at the same time.

Jergens Crema Collection Giveaway

Do you remember as a child watching your mom with her beauty routine?  Although my mother never wore lots of makeup, her beauty routine always included moisturizing. Mom always used the Jergens All Purpose Face Cream or how she liked to call it "Las Tres Caritas"  (3 Faces).  The jar had 3 faces of women to show the cream was made for all types of faces.  The stuff was pink, thick and a little greasy, but worked wonders.  It removed makeup, moisturized and made your skin look smooth and dewy.  Not even sure if they still make this stuff.  

Jergens has introduced a new collection with some of the old nostalgic cream feel. The Crema Collection is a set of 3 creams made to pamper, soothe and rejuvenate your skin with natural hydrating ingredients.  In the Latino culture many people believe in natural remedies and the Jergens Crema Collection used those natural ingredients to help with any issues for beautiful, radiant skin.

I was introduced to the Crema Collection back in April, when Monique from Curves and Chaos hosted a Jergens Crema Party. The Crema Collections consist of Soothing Aloe Vera, Hydrating Coconut Milk and Deep Conditioning Oatmeal. Each crema has a distinct scent of the corresponding ingredient, with a thicker texture than a lotion and makes your skin very soft.  My favorite is the Soothing Aloe Vera, has a fresh scent and I just love the color green.  

Enriched with Aloe Vera–long prized for its skin-soothing properties–this luscious body moisturizer is specially formulated with Vitamin E and B5. This formula enriches and refreshes your dry skin. Jergens®Crema Soothing Aloe Vera absorbs quickly and provides long-lasting moisture, for beautiful, visibly healthier skin.
