East Coast for the weekend? Yes, please! New York has always been a place I wanted to visit, with my mom alongside, we decided to take a spontaneous weekend trip to the east coast.  Since it was my first time going, we did a lot  of the “tourist things”. Of course, on our first night there we visited Time Square, time square was very  exciting but at the same time extremely over whelming since there is SO much to see. We also took a small trip to Hoboken, New Jersey. New Jersey is only about 30 mins away from the big apple. Personally, I enjoyed Jersey better since the environment is more tranquil but New York is definitely more entertaining. Even though the weather was extremely cold (29F) for us Californians, we had an amazing time! On our last day there it started to snow, which was pretty awesome since it was the first day of snow in the city. A spontaneous weekend with my mom in the big apple is definitely a memory to cherish.

Attached are a few pictures of my trip, to see more check out my YouTube Channel @ estefanixo.

Happy Monday Loves!!

Hope you’re all having a great Monday so far! I just wanted to share the outfit that I wore yesterday to the cemetery. Visiting a cemetery can be a bittersweet feeling, in my case it’s more sweeter than sour. My sister and I made a visit to my wonderful grandfather Sunday morning. I wore this outfit to represent happiness. Happiness because he is in a much better place and no longer suffering.

His favorite color was Aqua, so I thought this shirt would be a nice way to involve a liking of his.

Remember, only because they’re gone from this world it doesn’t mean they’re gone from our lives; the impact they made will always remain.

Xo, Steph!

Good Morning and happy Wednesday my loves! 💙 hope you are all having a greatweek thus far.

I am sharing yesterday’s work outfit with you guys since I am currently obsessing over this dress and weather.

This dress was a major steal deal! I purchased it at h&m for ONLY $14.95 and yes, that was the original price! I practically live in long sleeves so this dress was a must add to my closet. I love the different lengths at the bottom, it gives it a lot more volume which I absolutely  love since I do have a petite frame. I wore this dress with some beige/nude pumps and some rose gold accessories which I felt tied the whole outfit together.

I hope you all liked my outfit today, I got a lot of compliments on the dress. If you do end up purchasing it, please tag me so I can also see how you style this lovely dress 💋

Life is a blur

I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. Whether the situation is good or bad, I believe God has a purpose behind it all. Sometimes, when we go through difficulties it’s hard to see the positive side of life. I encourage you to stay strong and hold on. Be patient. Things happen when you least expect them, expectations only lead to disappointments.

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I am also a believer in God Almighty. I don’t believe in vengeance. Everything is in God’s hands and in his timing. Let go and let it be.

When life seems like a blur, remember that not everything is going to make sense; not everything is going to be the way you planned…..BUT remember that whatever it is you’re going through, is in God’s plan for you. The beauty of life is when one door closes another one opens. **Don’t forget** if something is meant to be then it will be; if not, don’t be bitter about it because better things are yet to come.

God bless you all, love ya!

Happy Monday!!

“When trials and tribulations come, as children of the Most High God, we can take courage; we can be confident, and we can have perfect peace. Why? Because perfect peace doesn’t come from the world. Courage doesn’t come from the world and neither does confidence. These things come from a relationship with Almighty God. We can have hope in challenging times because God has promised us victory. As long as we stay in faith, as long as we put our trust and hope in God, we will stay in victory. No matter what you are facing today, remember, faith pleases God and opens the door for His supernatural favor, strenght and wisdom. Don’t settle for defeat because you are preprogrammed for victory. Choose to thank Him for what He is doing in your life and for the victory that is on the way. Be strong, be bold and take courage today because God has overcome the world!”

Mostly everyday I get these little encouragement messages from my co-worker. They always inspire and motivate me to become a better person. This message was much needed today, because even though we know this things, sometimes we all need a helpful reminder. I figured I will share this thought with you guys to hopefully remind you that every trial and tribulation is a blessing from God. What is there to fear? We have victory through Lord Christ!! Better things are yet to come.

God bless you all && have a beautiful rest of the day =)
