PREMIOS JUVENTUD | PARTY IDEAS


This post is sponsored by Target. As always, all opinions are my own.

From as far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed watching award shows. I remember when I lived with my mom (before I got married) we would watch the shows together followed by a desvelada because we wouldn't miss a minute of it and watched it 'til the very end, even if that meant going to school the next day tired as ever.
And today I want to share how I get ready to enjoy Premios Juventud with my little fambam! I love embracing my Latin roots and keeping my culture and traditions alive in my home. 
There's nothing like a little musica, drinks and yum snacks to start off the night. For me, the red carpet is where it all starts, as a fashion blogger I love to check out all the celebrities and what they are wearing. Any time I have a party or get together, I head to my local Target for all my goodies. From drinks to chips and the amazing and stylish decor. I am obsessed with Pretzel Thins! 
Doesn't it happen to you that you go in there for chips and drinks and leave the store with a cart full? I am so guilty of this! This is exactly what happened to me on this Target run. I know I can find every single thing I need and then some. So tonight was no exception. 
To me, creativity and visuals are everything. Even on a fun yet simple night at home like this, I love to decorate and make things look pretty. Because todo se ve mas rico when it looks super lindo! Ain't that the truth? I am a sucker for a pretty presentation. I am obsessed with straws, cups and anything white and gold! My husband thinks I am crazy but I love styling my food spreads and food dishes. 
If you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (which you totally should!) you often see my breakfast, lunch and dinners... and you may have noticed that I just love pretty food! 
Do you guys watch Premios Juventud? What's your favorite category or part of the show? What kind of relajo do you guys get into when you get your friends and family together for this fun night?

WHAT TO WEAR THIS 4TH OF JULY | KIDS STYLE

On Ben | Tee: Old Navy | Shorts: Carter's | Shoes: Converse Kids
On Emme | Onesie: Old Navy

I love having two kids. I love dressing them similar or at least coordinating them on certain occasions. So this 4th of July is no exception. Last night we headed out to watch the fireworks and I decided to dress up the kids in their $5 Old Navy 4th of July tees. I love to take pictures of them for every holiday and occasion, it's just such a sweet memory for them to look back on when they are older one day. I have always loved pictures and love snapping tons of my babies.
I am off to enjoy the rest of my weekend but wanted to make sure I got this post up in case you guys were wondering on some last minute 4th of July outfit ideas for the kids. It's important to keep in mind they are kids and comfort is key!

Enjoy this beautiful and meaningful weekend!
I am proud to be an American. And I love to represent my Latina culture. 
Have fun and be safe! Happy Birthday America!

THE ZARA SALE | MOMMY + ME STYLE

 
Mommy and me
on Emme
 Top: Zara Kids | Shorts: Gap Kids | Moccs: c/o Sweet + Swag 

on Mommy 
Top, Jeans, Bag + Shoes: Zara
Earrings: Lola Blue, the closet

For as long as I can remember I have been a girly girl. Loving fashion and anything girly. 
Now that I have my daughter, she is truly our little cherry on top. She completes our family and brings so much joy and happiness to our home. So for me, getting to dress alike is pretty much my dream come true. I've always loved to dress up my son and buy him cute affordable pieces and the same goes for Emme. So I truly loved wearing this Mommy & Me look with her!
Unless you are living under a rock... you know the Zara Sale is here and boy does that mean trouble! Thankfully the prices are amazing! And I was able to find a few chic pieces to add to my, Emme's and Ben's wardrobe. Last Saturday we wore this look for a couple of birthdays we had that day. I didn't plan it until about 1 hour before we left the house. And I love how adorable little Miss Pretty looked.

UPDATE

Hi guys! In case you are wondering why I have been MIA I wanted to let you know I am having issues with my computer and my memory card where all my photos I took over the weekend are stored. I am hoping to get it resolved soon. I need a new computer! So badly. 
I am thinking of taking the plunge and diving right into an Apple. Ugh!
I hope to get back to blogging soon. I am waiting on a card reader for now until I figure out what to do. Send me good vibes! I have a campaign due today!

JOHNSON'S BABY #MoreForYou NYC EVENT

So much fun filming a little video with Claire from Fashion Bomb Daily.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a super cute event with Johnson's at Penthouse 45 in Manhattan. So I wanted to share a little recap, if you follow me on SnapChat [lolabluestyle] you saw how fun it was! There was everything from delicious cocktails to fabulous manicure stations, a braid bar, photo booth (of course!) and a makeup retouching station. 
Johnson's wanted to show us that their products don't only have to be used for babies. And I am totally in agreement with this statement! I've used Johnson's products from way before I had my kids. Here are some ways you too can use Johnson's products for yourself in your beauty regimen:

- Use the Johnson's Baby Shampoo to clean your  makeup brushes and even as a facial cleanser! It's soft and gentle and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and smelling amazing.

- Johnson's Baby Powder is the original dry shampoo...  I remember  my mom giving me this amazing tip years ago! To use baby powder on my hair to get rid of the greasiness! If you pat some baby powder and softly tap your roots you will have volume and your hair will look fresh and clean! While I was at the event I also learned that baby powder is amazing for getting rid of sand at the beach! Yes ladies! 
Just use it as lotion per say and sand comes right off! 

- For a mommy on the go like me, Johnson's Body + Face Wipes are amazing, I love the small packaging and I love that I can use it on my kids as swell as clean my makeup right off too. 

I hope you liked this little recap! And enjoyed my little tips. Happy Wednesday!

WHAT'S IN MY DIAPER BAG?

About a week ago I posted on my Instagram about what videos I should film for my YouTube channel, basically what did you guys want to see. And one of my readers asked for a "what's in your diaper bag" video and I loved the idea, so I totally got into it. 
I remember when I had my son, I was such a rookie, I had no idea what I was doing and packing a diaper bag would actually stress me out. I mean... what does this baby need? how do I know what's going to happen in the next two hours? So I would over pack or under pack. It would take me forever to get out of the house... new mommas are you with me on that one? 
well... in comes second baby, thank you baby Jesus! I am now what some may call an expert;) 
The best advice I can give you is to always have the baby bag ready, here's how.
So I wanted to share some little tips of what has worked for me. 
Here is my latest YouTube video and please subscribe to my channel:)

1.    baby wipes
2.   2-3 diapers
3.  bib
4.   burp cloth
5.    headband and/or  bow (hat for boys)
6.           onesie (for summer)
