Beautiful New Tunes To Add On My Playlist

Andre Henry's music has been my favorite to
listen to especially since his music brings me to
the core of my heart.  His music is romantic and
very beautiful and I each and every track is a 
pleasure and joy to listen to!

If you want to listen to more of his music check

Mind, a Body, & Soul

I was a bit late and in a rush, but it felt great to back into my yoga and
meditation routine!  Since I moved to California I have learned that
both meditation and yoga is crucial and key to great mental health.
It helps me personally to prioritize what is important in my life,
and learn to stay focus on the course of my goals.  The best
yet hardest practice, is mindfulness.  The art of mindfulness is
about being aware of the here and now, it being of aware of the
personal actions you place in a day to day life as well.  

For myself, the purpose for mindfulness is to remember to slow down
and enjoy the good things happening at the moment, and mindfulness
is great for strengthening the mind as well.  So as much as I love to post 
my workout outfits on Instagram, the actual meditation is such a personal,
beautiful, and private experience and I encourage everyone
 to give it a try! 

My outfit: 

White top: Gap 

Yoga Pants: 90 Degree by Reflex 

Vegan Leather Backpack

DKNY Sneakers

The Passionate Color of Red

It was a bright and sunny day, and I could not help but bask in one of my favorite colors...
red!  Both the sweater and jeans are from Gap, my duffle bag is from Forever21 and I paired
the look with my sandals from the post before and a jeweled headband.  On a bright, sunny, and
charming day I just love to express myself through colors, it is inspiring especially if you
live right next to the beach.  What is your personal favorite hue?  Do you wear it often?
What color inspires your mood?

The Closet App That Changed My Life

There comes a point in someone's life when they realize things need to change and organized for the better, and that point happened in my life! I looked into my closet and there were moments where things will become lost in the abyss of chaos no matter how organized I thought my closet was. I came across an app called "StyleBook" that ended that "I have nothing to wear" mode because of that never ending chaos. 

        Now I can mix and match, and even plan my vacation outfits all on one app, and I am so thankful for the creation of this. Sometimes, fashion ruts happen hey it's normal! Instead of the habit I use to have (which was buy a whole new outfit), I can now use the app to be really creative with what I wear. What I enjoy most about this app is mostly when I decide to go shopping it can help me focus on my needs vs. wants which is so crucial to adding more creativity to a personal wardrobe.  It also helps to promote what needs to be donated as well.

What the app looks like on my phone:

I found this app at the Apple Store (not sure if it is available on Android)

You can add the details of the item and the availability example: laundry, dry clean, in closet, etc.

You can quickly view your closet based on category

Here is the outfit calendar

Do you use the app as well? Has it been helpful to
you?  What is your favorite fashion app?

The California Cool

For those who live in Northern California know quite too well, that one moment it is a chilly 40-50 degrees and the next 70 degrees. This outfit became the perfect in between for myself, and what is best is that it is perfect for the early morning yoga session. I am in love with these O'Neill sandals, which I heard is the new West Coast "it" item. There are just some days that you want to feel
comfortable and relaxed yet still look put together, this day was definitely it!
Hope you enjoyed the look of the day, what is your casual cool outfit

It is finally here, the event of all events...
The Academy Awards 2015! Here is a list
of my favorites of the nights, that not only inspired
me but also took my breath away.  These styles
ranged from elegant to glittery and fun.  Here
are the ladies and gentlemen who made it on 
my list...

Lupita Nyong'o wearing Calvin Klein had to be my
absolutely favorite of the night! When she entered
I fainted, because she just has that appeal and essence
when she wears any dress.  Her dress is made entirely
out of 6,000 pearls!

Next up David Oyelowo!  I loved his outfit because it is formal,
dapper, and refreshing!  I admire the fit of his suit and the color
compliments him very well.  I personally thought this was one 
of the best of the night as well.

Zendaya Coleman looks like a beautiful princess in this draped
silk gown by Vivienne Westwood.  I am delighted by her hair style, and
how surreal and elegant this style is.  She is personally one of my
favorite young celebrities and I look forward to seeing her on the
red carpet more and more!

America Ferrera broke away from the black and white popular
color on the carpet and decided on a beautiful silk and chiffon teal!
It was a wonderful fit and she looked so glamorous and elegant.

cobalt blue gown! It is designed by Manon Gabard who design
the dress to be specifically to be Eco Green. She looks beautiful
while helping the environment go Gina Rodriguez!

gown was my favorite because it looked simple yet perfectly chic.

Oprah Winfrey in Vera Wang and looks like a lovely
dream.  I love how the gown fits and drapes on the floor
perfectly!  She looks magnificent, go Oprah!

Emma Stone in Elie Saab wearing a canary yellow glitter dress is fantastic! Like
Oprah's dress I love how it drapes down to the floor perfectly.
If anyone wants to do a slit on a dress this is how you do it,
well balanced! 

Anna Faris in Zuhair Murad had the right about of sparkle and it worked!  
She looks that a red carpet star and very beautiful.

Faith Hill is still the one, as she wears J.Mendel!

Favorites of The Grammys 2015

It's that time of year where our favorite artist shine on the
red carpet.  This list is collected of my personal favorites
who shined the brightest.  

It is edgy, cool, and unique perfect for a music artist as
awesome as Gwen Stefani! She is donning Versace, a
designer who is known for making a statement on the
red carpet.

Rita Ora looks stunning in her dress, it was perfect and simple
and loved the details.  This is perfect for this award show!

I love this color combination and no one better to do this 
than Taylor Swift.  Elie Saab's creation is stunning on Taylor
Swift with a nice serene teal.

It just would not be an award show without a dash of
Tom Ford and Nicki Minaj did it!  It looks so beautiful
on her and perfectly fitted as well.

Lady Gaga looks shines bright like the beautiful planet Venus
that she is.  Brandon Maxwell has done a phenomenal job on
such a shining dress!

The Queen of the night Beyonce reigns with a glittering floral
detailed dress by Proenza Schouler.  She looks lovely as always!

Ciara brought beautiful regal art on to the red carpet!  The fabric,
shimmer, and detail is absolute perfection and Alexandre Vauthier
did a superb job.

Knowing Miley Cyrus' persona in her art this dress was made
for her!  Alexandre Vauthier has done it once again! She looks
amazing, and has a smile that sparkles like the star she is.

I love Haim and my favorite designers are Stella McCartney 
and Chloe.  They definitely look stunning like the music
goddesses that they are!

Ariana Grande rocked Versace wonderfully!  It shimmers like
the theme of the night, and fits her so perfectly like a intergalactic
Grecian goddess.

Rocsi Diaz looked so beautiful! I love how simple yet unique, and
glittery her dress was.  The details and fabric (looks like silk mixed
with chiffon) were too die for!

The Queen of all heiresses knew how to Grammy it up best in 
Yousef Aljasmi.  Paris Hilton was not afraid to dazzle with the rest
of the stars!

Gretchen Parlato dress was simple, elegant, but dazzling as well.
It had a very cool vibe to it and it looks beautiful!

I absolutely love this!!  Angelique Kidjo looks so beautiful and
regal, this is one of my favorites she is suberp.

Anita Wilson looks marvelous, and the dress is radiant and
gorgeous and she pairs it so nicely with her accessories!

Another star who was not afraid to shine tonight is Pauley Perette.
She decided to shimmer like a glam goth beauty!

So this is my personal favorite It List Celebs for the Grammys of 2015
