Let’s be real

Hello guys! Today is one of those rainy October days, where all you want to do is cuddle and watch movies at home, I love rainy days, specially when I don’t have to leave my house. Anyways let me just start this ramble by saying, that I’m so happy to be back to my little corner on the internet, you guys cant even imagine all the times I was like, “okay  today I’m going to wake up and blog” or saying like,  that’s it tomorrow I will blog You guys heard this like a thousands times already, how easy is to get discourage or just feel like you shouldn’t even try something because you are afraid of the outcome. 

Familly will always tell me “Nicole if you don’t even start, how can you even know if this is really going to work for you” and I was always like “I’m just so tired from work” I always had a reason not to do it.

Guys its crazy how easy is to find a reason not to do something ( I’m surprise myself by just thinking about it ) because I’m kind of a pain in the as** and, when I think I’m right about something its kind of hard for me, to get in my little head that I may be wrong.  Hey I’m human!!...  anyways I just wanted to re-start this journey by saying that yes I do get scared and very easily discourage but I’m going to give the best of me and not give up on what I believe, and I hope all the friends out there will do the same!
Lets be real we are all humans and life its hard and things happen, lots of set back, and this world is full of all kind of people, but I’m pretty sure that nobody cant come and say that never had any problem or any set back in life, because in this life what define us as a person, is what good have we done and who we are… I’m a 22 year old girl,  mother of an amazing 19 month old baby boy, and lots of people said, that if i had a baby so young i will ruin my life, that it will be over for me, and much of them may not said it to my face, but i knew.  and here I’m blessed with the most amazing crazy gift, i ever though of getting, which has showed me and fulfilled me with life experience and all kind of things i never thought i will go through.
But after having my baby, i finished school and also graduated from dental assistant school and I’m definitely not done, I’m still young and there is so much i want to do… that I’m going to do! and I’m definitely not saying that it was easy, because it wasn’t, but what I’m saying is that “you are able to do anything you want if you set your heart and soul to it” my mom told me that and she couldn’t be more right, and i know its not easy to be positive during bad things going on, but we need to try to keep on the power of positive thinking.
anyways, thank you guys for baring with me and all this crazy rambling of mine!

                                                                                                                          Stay Strong, love Nicole

                                                                                                                                             

How i wash my makeup brushes

Hello guys welcome back to my blog! Today I want to bring you, kind of a tutorial in how I clean my makeup brushes, what I use, and how I do it. Being able to clean your makeup brushes is very important, its good to clean them at least once a week, your skin is very delicate and sensible, is important to make sure that we take good care of it, and that includes clean brushes when applying your makeup.

 What I use to clean my makeup brushes is olive oil, shampoo (regular shampoo), small bowl, and medium towel.

Step 1. Put small amount of olive oil on the small bowl, the quantity of the olive oil depends on how big is your brush, if is a big brush, you could put a little bit more.

Step 2. Move your brush in circular motion inside the bowl, with the olive oil, when the brush is already wet with the olive oil, squeeze on the sink you will see the makeup coming out, if you want you could do another round of the olive oil.

Step 3.  Rinse it with water and than apply shampoo, what I do is that I put a little bit of shampoo into the palm of my hand and swoosh the brush around in it to get it all lathered up. Then I rinse it out the same way as before, under a stream of warm water while squeezing out the entire product. I do this twice over if the brush is bigger or dirtier, You want to make sure to get all the olive oil out of your brushes otherwise they will get greasy.

Step 4. Rinse it with water till you
remove all the makeup (make sure there’s no shampoo left) than put your brushes on top of the towel to dry.

Information: some people asked me why do I use olive oil, well the answer is, that olive oil is really helpful taking out all the build up makeup in a faster matter.  And olive oil I feel it kind of makes it softer, but that’s me! Let me know if you guys try it and if you liked the results.
I really think that it’s important; to include washing your brushes on your weekly routine, that way you could enjoy cleaner and healthy brushes! J

Hola chicos bienvenidos de nuevo a mi blog ! Hoy quiero ofrecerles, una especie de tutorial en cómo yo limpio mis brochas de maquillaje , lo que uso , y cómo lo hago. Ser capaz de limpiar sus bruchas de maquillaje es muy importante , es bueno limpiarlas al menos una vez a la semana , la piel es muy delicada y sensible, es importante asegurarse de que tengamos un buen cuidado de la misma, y esto  incluye brochas limpias al aplicar su maquillaje.
Lo que yo uso para limpiar mis brochas de maquillaje es el aceite de oliva , champú ( shampoo regular) , un recipiente pequeño, y una toalla mediana .
Paso 1. Ponga una pequeña cantidad de aceite de oliva en el pequeño tazón, la cantidad de aceite de oliva depende de qué tan grande es su brocha , si es una brocha grande , se puede poner un poco más .
Paso 2. Mueva la brocha  en movimientos circulares en el interior del tazón con el aceite de oliva , cuando la brocha este ya mojada con el aceite de oliva , apriete en el lavadero y podrás ver el maquillaje salir, si lo deseas, puedes hacer una nueva ronda de el aceite de oliva.
Paso 3. Enjuague con agua y despues aplique el champú , lo que yo hago es que  pongo un poco de champú en la palma de mi mano y muevo la brocha alrededor de ella para conseguir que todo se enjabone . Luego enjuague de la misma manera que antes, bajo una corriente de agua caliente mientras exprimir todo el producto. Hago esto dos veces si la brocha es más grande o esta más sucia, usted tiene que asegurarse de conseguir que todo el aceite de oliva de la brocha salga, de lo contrario van a estar grasienta.
Paso 4. Enjuague con agua hasta quitar todo el maquillaje (asegúrese de que no hay champú en las brochas) luego ponga sus brochas en la parte superior de la toalla para secar .
Información:algunas personas me preguntaron por qué uso el aceite de oliva, y la respuesta es, que el aceite de oliva es muy útil sacando toda la acumulación de maquillaje más rápido. Y el aceite de oliva siento que hace que se sientan mas suave, pero esa soy yo! Quiero saber si ustedes lo probaron y si le gustó el resultado.
Realmente creo que es importante; incluir lavar las brochas en su rutina semanal, de esa manera puede disfrutar de brochas limpias y saludables!

First warm day after winter in NYC!

Hello guys! Welcome to my blog today i felt i should tell you how i spent the first warm day after winter in NYC, basically the first warm day of spring actually, as this spring has been so cold, but before i turned this into a weather blog let me tell you how i spent this beautiful day!

Around my house there is this beautiful park that i loove! and been dying to go but as winter hit us hard, it was all white and full of snow, so as soon as it was warm and nice outside i got my baby bag and stroller and took Aiden to the park, he has been in the park before but the last time i took him he was just a baby, and now that he is one year old he could definitely enjoy it more.


It was so nice to see nature up close again and his face as we walked in the park, he was so exited and at the same time looked so overwhelmed with all these kids around. Aiden is my only child and all his aunts and uncles are older than him, no cousins, as his the first grandson from my side of the family as well as his dads, he doesn’t see much kids running around, the first thing we did was take him to the swing, which his face looked so funny because all he did was look at the girl next to him!(tell me about that!!) like “hello! mommy is here trying to make you laugh and take some pictures!!” Well anyways, he ran, he played and had so much fun. My point of view is that kids at this age love outdoors, and imagining my poor kid being indoors this long winter, i’ll definitely be taking advantage of every single warm day of this summer with my child, and recommend every mommy in places with cold weather like me to do the same.


  Love, Nicole

Hola amigos! Bienvenidos a mi blog, Hoy sentí que debía decirles cómo pasé, El primer día cálido después del invierno en Nueva York, Básicamente el primer día cálido de primavera en realidad ya que esta primavera ha sido tan fría, pero antes de combertir esto en un blog de clima, deja que te cuente cómo me pasé este hermoso día!
Alrededor de mi casa hay este hermoso parque que yo amoo! y eh estado muriendo por ir,  pero como el invierno nos golpeó tan fuerte, todo estaba blanco y lleno de nieve , por lo que tan pronto se puso cálido y agradable fuera, prepare mi bolso del bebé y cochecito y lleve a Aiden al parque, el ha estado en el parque antes, pero la última vez que lo llevé él era apenas un bebé, y ahora que tiene un año de edad sin duda lo disfruta más.
 Fue muy agradable ver la naturaleza de cerca de nuevo y su rostro cuando entramos en el parque , estaba tan emosionado y al mismo tiempo se veía tan abrumado con todos estos niños alrededor . Aiden es mi único hijo y todos sus tíos y tías son mayores que él , no hay primos , ya que es primer nieto de mi lado de la familia , así como de su papá, el no ve mucho niños corriendo a su alrededor, lo primero que hize fue llevarlo al culumpio, su rostro se veía tan gracioso porque todo lo que hacía era mirar a la chica a su lado ! ( háblame de eso !! )
 ” hola ! mami está aquí tratando de hacerte reír y tomar algúnas fotos !! ” Bueno de todos modos , corría, jugaba y se divertio. Mi punto de vista es que los niños en esta edad aman estar al aire libre, e imaginando mi pobre niño estar bajo techo este largo invierno, sin duda aprovechare de todos los días calientes de este verano con mi hijo , y recomiendo cada mamá en lugares con climas fríos como yo a hacer lo mismo.



Love, Nicole



Happy New Year!

Happy new year my loves! yes we made it to a new year and its exiting and scary all at the same time but lets just get this blessing and make the best of it, make this our year, a lot of people talk about their resolutions for this new year and i think is great that people get to make new goals for this new year, and well by my part I’m ready to hit the gym and go back in shape, well just go back to my original weight before the baby.

This year i actually want to write more and finally graduate from school and be a dental assistant, this year just flew by so fast i cant even believe that my bay is almost one year old and that its almost a year i was inflated like a balloon with my baby inside.

So you guys take advantage of this new year and go and have some adventures, try new things or just start simple and easy like me and just enrolled in the gym, i will keep you guys updated of whats next on my list and you should keep me updated too!

Welcome Fall

Its not a secret that my favorite season is fall, and ill explain to you the things i love about it and a couple of ideas for you to fall in love with it too…

Today was a special day for my little family, my baby boy Aiden went to his first pumpkin picking at the Queens County Farm Museum, it felt really nice to add a sense of tradition to us, as i want to do this every year with him, it was a little hard as i live in NewYork and a lot of things get in the way, like work and different responsibilities but i always try to get my family a little getaway and new things for us to do together, my baby boy was amazed of all the children running around, and it was so funny seeing Aiden trying to stand up on the pumpkins and grabbing everything around him.

As we kept walking around the Farm we saw the corn maze, and all those farm animals, like chickens, horses, ponies, etc… and i hope next year Aiden is big enough to ride on one of the donkeys. It is an amazing place to spend the day with your kids and family i strongly recommend it.

    I love when October hits the calendar, because that means my favorite holidays like; halloween, thanksgiving, christmas and hey lets not forget of Black Friday are around the corner. its definitely a lot of decorating  involved and GOD i love all this themes decorations around my house, lets not forget all the cuddling involved, I love to just stay at home in my pajamas and just watch some movies with a nice cup of hot coco or some green tea uhmm.. Anyways lets not get distracted, FALL comes with a lot of beauty trends that I LOVE I’m a girl after all, like warm colors, ankle boots, dark lipstick, and one of my favorites SWEATERS! I hope you my amazing readers take the time to enjoy with your loved ones this amazing season. Little things that you get to share with your family can definitely make a difference! I took some photos that i will love to share with you, thank you for reading.
