Thrifting Tips

Why I stopped buying trendy pieces.. If you have been here a while you probably already know that I have been thrifting my clothes for the past 2 years.  It has helped me find my own style and my own voice when it comes to the pieces I wear.  I am not saying I will never wear what is trendy, but I will def be looking for those trends second hand. Here are a few tips I use before heading to the thrift stores... Make a thrift wish list.    For the longest time I had on my list an oversized quilted jacket/coat and I just recently found one that was in prefect condition. I was so happy!! Also found a pair of Levi's ribcage flares I can't wait to wear them. Having a list helps you when choosing what to bring home. Have an open mind. Not every piece you find will be the exact match, but having an opened mind and a good tailor always helps.    Do not worry about sizing. If you don't already know, a vintage 8 it is not a modern 8 per say.  I buy whatever fits and looks good regardl

Spring Forward

  Waiting for Spring... With Spring right around the corner I am starting to spring clean my house, my mind and everything! Here are three things I did so far.. I lightened my hair I been wanting to go blonde for a while and I finally did last month.  I went in for some front highlights, but my hair dresser convinced me to do a full head of them.  I am happy I did! I cleaned my closet This is something I do on a regular basis, but right before the change of season I edit my closet and pretty much donate anything that I have not worn in at least a year and items that don't bring me joy anymore. Change/Add new skin products I like to call myself a collector not a hoarder when it comes to skin care.  As much as I like to keep them all, I also do a clean sweep of products that really didn't work for me.  My most used item is my moisturizer and that is the first thing I change from a thicker one to a lotion for the warmer days. Is there anything you do before the change of season?

Purple and Pink

When the 80's come back.... I have to be honest 80's fashion is not my favorite, but I couldn't resist this vintage jumpsuit.  I went all 80's pairing it with pink boots to keep the colors going.  What is your favorite fashion era? xo, Yaudy Cristina *Vintage jumpsuit and bag*  

Three things to help with the Winter blues

 I think we can all agree that Winter can be draining and depressing sometimes.  I personally dread this of time of the year and as soon as the Holidays are over I want warm weather and the sun. I started doing these three things for about 3 years now and they do make me feel better. I started to journal... I write down thoughts and things I want to accomplish.  Every night I write down events that took place during the day as well as activities I want to do in the future. I even plan my outfits ahead of time. Spa day at home... Every Wednesday night I do a face mask and hair mask.  I also keep up with my pedicures and shave my legs, YES, shave my legs during Winter LOL Those little things are so good for your self steam. Self care is a must for me. Make meals,,, I love cooking, so this one is a no brainer for me.  I love trying out new dishes and come up with recipes of my own.  Something I have been doing for a while now. Let me know in the comments what is something you do to make y

My 3 Goals for 2023

 2022 felt like it came and went with a blink of an eye.  It was a good year for me personally and professionally. I was able to do some traveling and that is always a good thing! I did a lot of growing and self healing.  Hoping to continue that during this year, With that said here are the three major personal goals I plan to accomplish. Do more of what makes me happy.. I need to get on a writing schedule.  Writing on here makes me feel accomplished and it is something I have let go for while.  But I think if I make it into a task it will definitely be done.  I am starting today and scheduling another post for Wednesdays Stop over spending... I spent have of my vacation cleaning and decluttering my house I feel so light.  I am able to open my closets and see what I have and it is more than enough.  I am not saying I will never buy anything as my business is about thrifting and finding those gems, but I know being sustainable means less overbuying and that is what I am all for.
