For us Miamians winter in Miami is one maybe two days long, AKA a cold front. This year we didn’t get much cold weather. No season changes, no sweaters were really brought out. Depending where you live you can be grateful or jealous! I know some parts of the US were hit pretty hard with snow!
This weekend it was the perfect weather to enjoy a nice dinner with my parents. As you can tell I get my style and grace from them! It was also a perfect excuse to bring out my over the knee boots. Hey, the cold never bothered me anyways. *Frozen refference*

This past Thanksgiving my family and I traveled to Walt Disney World to celebrate. When packing we all think of the obvious our toiletries, and what to wear of course. Fashion is so important to us, from our head to our toes. Before I realized it I had so much shit on my bed I knew I wasn’t taking half of it with me, time to rethink and pack correctly I mean I’m only going for a weekend right? How much clothes do I really need? Well when it comes to clothes I don’t follow the rules I follow my heart. I do tend to dress the part, I mean in -10 degree weather I’m not going to wear a bikini. Hey if you’re brave enough go for it, but not this Miami girl.
When it comes to fashion I don’t think anyone should tell you how to dress. Rules are meant to be broken right? Everyone should feel awesome wearing the clothes they are in! I will post my outfits and the details for everyone to follow. If you like it awesome, if not cool too. This is my fashion adventure one day at a time.
When it comes to Disney I do act like a child. It really is the happiest place on Earth. Although I have been to Disney over 546851 times since I was a child each time is magical. My family does spoil me and treat me like a princess too. Just look at my face in the pictures. This trip was extra special because i got to meet some of my favorite characters Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb. They were perfect. As you can tell I dressed the part and followed my heart.

Shea butter or Butyrospermum Parkii if we are being scientific is an off white fatty substance obtained from the nuts of the shea tree mainly from West Africa. Did you know that Cleopatra used shea butter in her beauty routine? If its fit for a queen it’s fit for me. Most of us know of this gift from the earth because it is typically used in natural skin care products. Raw and unrefined shea butter is rich in oleic acids, vitamin E and vitamin A. It also has high amounts of fatty acids. Studies show not only does it help reduces inflammation but it also has some of the same anti-tumor promoting benefits that cinnamon has. Who doesn’t want baby soft skin at the end of the day?
But why shea butter you ask?
Raw shea butter is a great ingredient because it hydrates and helps the skin glow. it helps provide hydration to the skin, keeping it soft. Shea butter also helps reduce wrinkles and boost collagen and cell regeneration. Do you have a dry scalp or hair? you guessed it more shea butter! It works much like coconut oil, seals in moisture conditioning the scalp alleviating dandruff, leave on for 20-30 minutes rinse then shampoo and condition like normal. Perfect to help eliminate that itchy winter skin, or to prevents wind burn. Shea butter naturally has a SPF of 6. It is a much healthier choice than sunscreen. Brace yourselves this is my favorite one because I am proof of this, of course nothing is over night, reduces the appearance of stretch marks and scarring. It took a few months of applying every night but stretch marks gone. Prevents diaper rash for babies because of its anti-inflamitory and antifungal properties. It’s pretty damn awesome.
If list are more your style heres 5 more reasons why you should be using shea butter every day:
- Can enhance the elasticity of your skin, some even say it helps with cellulite.
- Can help with those pesky bags under your eyes.
- Useful as skin lotion, can be mixed with essential oils, has SPF of 6.
- Can be used daily to reduce inflammation, eczema and psoriasis.
- Using it as a primer or foundation for your make up will not only hydrate dry skin but will help make up pop but will help it last longer. (be careful if you have acne prone or oily skin it may clog pores)
If that’s not enough for ya I don’t know what is baby.
You can find shea butter at your local health food store. Always look for unrefined and organic.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! I hope every one had amazing holiday weekend because I know I did! I was lucky enough to spend Christmas Eve or Noche Buena as we call it in Miami with my extended family and Christmas with my close family. Nothing says holidays like family, anxiety, lots of food and drinking. My mom comes from a big family so we all get together for the holidays. Even though holidays can be stressful at times family is what holds us together, no matter how crazy they can be. Trust me no one is crazier than my family.
Now on Christmas we had a smaller get together at my house with my close family. What is Christmas with out some gifts and cookies? We had my cousin come over and so did my grandmother. Don’t tell anyone but she’s my favorite. I don’t know what I would do with out her. She is the best gift, I’m telling you holidays are all about family. Me and my cousin drive her crazy. My cousin is my mini-me, even though he’s almost my height. He couldn’t be more like me if I gave birth to him. You can’t forget my little brother AKA my best friend. He holds it down for me. BTW I say little brother he’s 6’2 and I’m 5’0 and I’m the older one. Can guess who got the good genetics here? My favorite material gift was a Kate spade purse and a Pandora ring.

The 26th or day after Christmas my mom had a pajama party at the house for all the family at the house. This was quite interesting. There was karaoke and a lot of drinking. I did not sing to say the least. Again lots of family and more drinking. MORE DRINKING. I stole a box of chocolates filled with liquor, I was pretty excited. I was also excited to see cousins of mine that I had not seen in years. I was not so happy to hear them sing but that’s another story. I thought with all this family in town and all these parties my anxiety would be through the roof, but it was quite the opposite. I don’t know if it was keeping my mind busy or if they were keeping me happy but I was actually happy. At the end of the day blood is thicker than water. No matter how crazier they may seem family is the greatest gift of all.

Hello there! My name is Miss Stephanie and I am the founder and writer of this newly started blog. I love fashion, food, music, beauty products, my cat, anxiety, drinking and pretty much everything a 24 year old girl loves right? Wrong.

But loving these things are not the reasons why I started this blog. I started this blog so anyone can hopefully feel inspired to be themselves no holding back. It took me a lot to get to where I am today, but I am excited to share my journey with all of my friends old and new. I will be sharing my fashion looks, recipes, beauty products, film reviews, and anything else you guys want to see! I look forward to whats to come!
