Suavitel® Fragrance Pearls™

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with #CollectiveBias and #LongLastingScent.


Perhaps one of the best memories I have as a child is having my mom prepare our fresh and clean clothes for the week. Sundays were always laundry days, I loved helping my mom separate the colored clothes. I loved even more helping her fold the laundry because I loved how good the clothes smelled once they were out of the dryer. She always used to use Suavitel®  fabric conditioner the yellow bottle. The smell was so comforting and prominent. 
Theres just something so comforting about having clean, fresh smelling clothes. Once I found out Suavitel® l came out with these 5x longer lasting  Fragrance Pearls™, in wash scent boosters. I ran out to my local Walmart to grab mine. It instantly brought me back to my childhood. 



The new Fragrance Pearls™ come in two scents Field Flowers and Lavender. There will be Suavitel® Fragrance Pearls™ samples on select Suavitel® liquid fabric conditioners in store. My favorite to use is the soothing lavender I always like to use the liquid fabric conditioner in the same scent so I can make the scent last longer. I love how you can tell a story and create memories with just a simple scent. How do you create your memories?

4 Spring Outfit Ideas








I seriously can't wait for Spring to come already. Ive teamed up with HP to bring you 4 of my Spring outfits ill be rocking this season inspired by the 4modes of the x360 (Laptop, Tablet, Tent, and Stand).

Usually Spring is all about pastels and softer hues but to Bend the Rules of fashion I have selected brighter outfits. Thanks to HP Ive been following Meghan Trainor's That Bass Tour. I've been watching Behind The Scenes episodes and I was inspired by all of her bold and colorful tour wardrobe. You can also follow along here and watch all the fun and exclusive episodes HP is bringing to you.


 I honestly love how portable and flexible this Hp x360 is. I can watch my favorite videos, scroll down my favorite sites anywhere I want. Since I can use it as a regular laptop or I can transform it into a tablet a tent or keep it standing. I love to keep it close by when I get ready so I can get ideas/inspiration.












Tell me what is your favorite outfit and what colors are you most excited for Spring. Don't forget to follow HP and Meghan Trainor follow the hashtag #bendtherules for exclusive behind the scenes footage.

Pizza Party

Perhaps you never grow out of loving pizza and wanting to eat it every week as you did when you were a child but once you grow up you hopefully you are more cautious of your eating choices. My sister taught me a healthier version which taste just as good. I asked her to share with us this relatively quick and easy recipe. Enjoy!

What you'll need:
Organic tomato sauce
Gluten Free Pizza Crusts
Organic Low Fat Cheese
Pepperoni
Cherry Tomatoes
Spring Lettuce Mix
Green onions
Olive Oil 







Obviously you can put the toppings of your liking but I really like veggies so my sister put a ton of cherry tomatoes on mine because she knows I love them. After you have all your toppings pop it in a toaster oven for about 15 mins & voila you're done. A healthier and easier pizza!

DIY Winter Hair Mask



I don't know if I've been coloring my hair a lot or if its just the winter weather that has made my hair extra dry this time around. I researched some DIY home remedy masks I could use just because I love to try different solutions. I came across this one and I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I have felt a difference in my hair.  

1 Cup of regular Yogurt
3 Tablespoon of olive oil

I usually mix this up in the morning and slather it all over my hair. I put my hair in a bun and try to leave it on for at least two or three hours. I try to use this mask at least once a week. The yogurt is suppose to moisturize and make your hair shiny & I just add olive oil to make it extra nourishing.

I have it for breakfast sometimes even for dinner, it fills you up and not to mention all the health benefits oatmeal has. Hope you enjoy!

Dior '5 Couleurs' Eyeshadow Palette





I had been wanting to get my hands on this palette for quite some time now. During the holidays I splurged and got it for myself. I absolutely love it! I got the holiday edition because those are the colors I gravitated towards the most. I really like shimmers, golds, and bronzy colors for my everyday makeup so it was a no brainer for me. The palette comes with 5 shadows, I liked it because its easy and very compact, great for traveling. The shadows themselves are very smooth easy to glide on. The color payoff probably wasn't the best I had to apply two or three coats to get the look I wanted. But I don't mind because the colors are very nice and up my alley, so I can live with applying two coats. Overall I really liked this product, I would purchase again.
