BEAUTY: YELLOW IS THE NEW BLACK

#HolaQueens



Well, HELLO there!!

It's been a while, like a really long while huh?!

Well I think I've voiced this out before but I have been in this funk since like March.
I've been pushing my self to get out of it but It hasn't worked all the way.

Summer is officially HERE!
I'm glad to announce that I have found my way back into the colorful side.


I got my nails done recently and while I was searching for a polish color I came across this OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana color and I instantly fell in love with it.

This color totally brought me back to a little bit of creativity.

I have been so into dark lip colors and make up, that I forgot how much I love color.
Color makes me happy, so I found my way back to the colorful side by putting together this make up look!



For this look I wanted the main focus to be the yellow color and the red lips, so I kept the eye make up more subtle.
My go to eye look has always been a combination of brownish and cream color on the lid, as the years have passed I've added black liner which still one of my biggest struggles, but I'm getting there yal!



For the face I decided to keep it simple and just add a little bit of Bronzer and I guess the simple part goes away when Highlight is involved huh?!! 





I added highlight to the bridge of my nose, the tip of my nose and my Cupid's bow.

Now this look main focus was the lips, I struggled trying to find the perfect lip color since I was already wearing bright yellow, and had bright nails, so I didn't know if I needed to keep it simple or go all the way out, and I guess I decided to go all the way out!



I reached for the RED color, the pants I was wearing that day had a red stripe and I figured red lips will be perfect for the look.

I really loved how this look came out, in my opinion was simple to create with the
 perfect pop of color!

Let me know If you like it and if you re create this look I'd like to know!




Love Always,

LIFESTYLE: 4 TIPS FOR RAISING A TAURUS DAUGHTER

#HolaQueens


My daughter has a very strong personality, but she’s also very, very sensitive which I admit a lot of the times, it upsets me. It has been a little difficult for me to understand and learn her sensitive side.

My casa is filled with nothing but Taureans, my mom, brother, dughter and me. Let me tell you it has been a challenge understanding our personalities.


Most of us have more of the stronger side of the Taurean personality, but on the other side my daughter seems to be a bit more on the sensitive side of the sign. 

I wasn't so blessed with the sensitive side, which is hard for me to understand sometimes because I have a very strong personality lol




She can switch pretty quick to the stubborn side, yet I feel like her sensitive side outweighs more the other one.

This sign is so sensitive due to the fact that Taureans rule by their five senses, sight, taste, touch, smell and sound!



Since they use all five senses, every experience for a Taurus is more intense. 

I often question my daughter sensitivity, which is often mistaken by being chiquiada (spoiled) we often miss that Taureans sees, hears, tastes, smells and ‘feels’ all at the same time.

Understanding some characteristics from the sign is where I have learned to manage my daughters personality a bit better.

I want to share with you all four tips for raising a Taurus daughter, being a Taurus my self I know this one right here is challenging.




1.    Be easy when it comes to changes.

Taureans have this thing that once they have found the right routine for them; it’s very, very hard for them to make changes. Any changes require a lot of preparation so they can easy into it. Please be cautious if you're trying to switch routines, it is not going to go very well if you make sudden changes.

2.    Punishments are not your best option.

Now this is a hard one, I can tell you that growing up I was very, very stubborn (main known characteristic for a Taurus) I remember my mom will punish me a lot, and not only that I will feel the powerful love of the belt, yet I would still not get the point and it will only make my attitude worse, and my stubbornness to follow directions will flourish more!

The broken record technique is a good tool for disciplining taureans. If they don’t listen, continue to repeat the same boundary or rule over and over again (without losing your cool) good luck with that too!

 It’s a very tough situation for us moms, but even now my mom shares how she learned this method with me, because she knew that the only to get through me are sometimes letting me cool down, than go over what she needed me to do, and still till this day. 
I have found my self in this particular situation a lot with my daughter as well 😢



3.    Don’t be afraid to show them extra love

Other of the main characteristics from a Taurus is their strength, therefore is quite surprising to know how much they enjoy extra love and affection. 
Although they rarely wear their emotions on their sleeves.

 Taureans often desire the need to be shown a lot of love. 
Don’t let their emotionally strong personality scare you, be generous in your hugs and let it be known- OFTEN!



4.    Independent is not always good

The Taurus personality trait shows they don't go around looking for sympathy from others. They knows that they're strong and can take care of things, and they show this characteristics early in age. 
They are strong believers in eating their feelings to avoid worrying the people they love. Although being independent is one of the best feelings, focus on constantly reminding them IT’S OK to ask for help, and in order to stay sane we must ask for help!


 I often run into this problem with my daughter, and not to mention myself, but little by little I’ve learned to ask for help and she has definitely improved as well.


Have many of you moms have Taurean daughters?

If you have more tips share them below, I'd like to know!


Love Always,

LIFESTYLE: GRANBURY TEXAS

#HolaQueens


How many times have you guys heard that Texas has the most bipolar weather everrrrr?!

 I bet a whole bunch of times huh?

That is such a true statement, during January we went from, rain, ice, tornadoes to amazing sunny days.

In particular I was in love with how amazing January 16th was.
It was such a beautiful day, the sky looked amazing.


Since the day was beautiful, I know I wanted to do something that involved being outside.

I decided to head over to Granbury, TX. 
Granbury, is only about 40 minutes from where I live, so we headed over to the town.


This little town is everything for me, it's old school and out in the middle of nowhere, which I love
The town is not saturated with fast food restaurants, stores which where we live is over saturated with everything you can imagine.
I enjoy to do things that get me out of my ordinary life, seeing different things is one of my greatest pleasures.
Their downtown is so small but lovely, with a few restaurants and local shops.


Each time we head that way we usually spend our time at the lake, they have a small "beach area" with sand and dock. 
Which we usually play for a bit and even dance.
This day we spent a few hours just sitting and admiring how beautiful the day was.





Love Always,
