UGH!

UGH! It’s just one of those times that we feel when things are just not in the right direction. Life can get pretty hard sometimes and I wonder why? why can’t just be so easy you know? Not going to lie It’s pretty easy to get depressing nowadays and I hope this post does the exact opposite! Remember things don’t always workout the way that we want them to and that’s okay because we are not perfect and life is not either. It comes with full of possibilities and hurdles we need to overcome to get them. So always remember there is a silver lining somewhere you just need to look closely to see it.

Summer is honestly the most weird time of the year. Sometimes it just so great and sometimes not so great. One day we are so happy that it’s sunny and warm because we get to go to B-E-A-C-H and only outfit we need is swimsuit. And some days we are running to work and dripping sweat as we get out of the subway figuring out why the heck we wore a long-sleeve. It’s just a lot of mixed feelings.

NYC has been little chilly lately with all that wind and rain.I honestly just couldn’t wait to put on my new sweatshirt from Urban Outfitters. If you watched my recent YouTube video, I actually talked a lot about this item and some of my other purchases from Asos. I paired this sweatshirt with my jersey shorts from Asos which I am so obsessed with right now. It’s pink and so soft definitely one of my favorite shorts. I finished my look with my flamingo socks from Old Navy and my all time favorite sneakers from Lacoste.

Get ready for the cool down

Get ready for the cool down

Get ready for the cool downHaving an active lifestyle is super fun and most certainly keeps us busy, but sometimes it could also be a little difficult to manage. Does not matter what we are up to, we always need to make sure we are ready for whatever coming up next. In order to get ready for the next game, workout or running session, we need to cool down and that’s where the Game Face Wipes come in. It’s solely designed for men to keep them fresh and clean after a workout.

Game Face wipes is a skincare product that will keep you cool in this summer heat. It has various options to pick from depending on what you are doing. I tried Cooling Wipes after my workout at the gym it just felt like I was taking an ice bath minus no ice and the feeling of my skin burning off. It’s one of a kind product to keep yourself clean and refreshed so you can get ready for your next activity!

5 Face Masks to try this summer

This post I am talking about another great product that you could use for your face besides my earlier post with Evian. I got a chance to try out When masks and I have to say it is pretty good. Each one of them made for different purposes so there is definitely something for everyone. It ranges from visible signs of aging, skin firmness, tone, texture to radiance. Also, they pretty much come ready. You don’t really need to mix or put anything together. Just spare yourself for 30 min before you head out somewhere or before you wake up for work.

First make sure to cleanse and dry your face. Then open the pouch and remove the plastic film. Adjust the mask on your face to make sure to cover all your face and finally remove the paper. After 30 min, take off the mask and you good to go. No need to wash your face again. Super simple right?! Check them out below and let me know what you think!

Orlando Theme Parks Recap

Whenever I want to get away from the city, I choose to go to Miami. It’s always a blast with the beach and food. This time I wanted to try something different and during my search Orlando popped up. Since theme parks are my thing and every summer I would spend a lot of time in Coney Island so I thought I would give it a try.

Orlando is very spread-out and not to mention full of bugs. This is actually a central Florida problem apparently. We stayed at an Airbnb that was only 15 min away from the airport, but a little far from theme parks. Every day we used Lyft cause there was no Uber pool in the area and UberX was just not affordable.

First few places we checked out were in International Drive. It’s a very touristy area since its surrounded with a lot of hotels, but it has a few cool attractions. We tried Orlando EyeSea Life and they were amazing. Orlando eye is very magical at night and you can see the whole city when you are on the top. Just make sure to check the weather because depending on how bad it is they close it for a few hours or for the whole day. Sea Life takes you through the journey of diving deep into the ocean and exploring all the organisms there. It’s just incredible and if you saw my Instagram stories you would know how cool this place was. My recent motion video was shot at Sea Life.

SHOP MY LOOKS

Next day, we visited Universal’s new theme park that just opened this summer referred as the Volcano Bay. We had mixed feelings before we visited the park because the reviews on google weren’t that great. We were just afraid that it would be at capacity by the time we arrive and won’t be even able to get in. This was one of the few complaints.

We arrived there around 9:15 am and it was pretty full. Unlike any other parks, this one uses a new technology. Some people again weren’t very happy about this, but I was. It’s honestly the beginning of the new era; virtual lines. They give you a wearable device at the entrance and that’s how you find out your wait time when you tap for each ride. Depending on the ride, wait times vary from 15 min to 250 min (not kidding). It’s worth it though!

You are pretty much drenched most of the rides so definitely wear your swimsuit before and bring a towel. Don’t forget to buy a dining plan before you enter the bay. It’s super expensive to buy food once you are in. The Most importantly have fun and get ready for adrenaline rush!

What to do this 4th of July

What to do this 4th of July?

I can’t believe it’s already 4th of July and next thing we know summer will be over soon, but right now let’s focus on this long weekend. You either have something planned or nothing at all which I don’t judge 🙂  Regardless what you have planned or not planned, hopefully this post will give you some ideas in terms of what you could do or what you could wear this 4th of July.

BEACH VIBES

Weather is going to be really nice, so it’s would be perfect to lie on the beach and get tan while sipping some margaritas. Nearest beaches you could go in New York City are Brighton Beach, Far Rockaway Beach and lastly Manhattan Beach. All of these are accessible with the subway and would not take you more than an hour to get there depending where you coming from. Personally I love Far Rockaway Beach although it takes a while to get there from where I live, it is totally worth it. It is very clean comparing to the other two and it has a huge food court with tacos, burgers, wings and good boozes. I also linked a few outfit ideas for this short beach trip below!

PARTY VIBES

Another thing you could do is to sleep until 3 in the afternoon and get ready for a crazy and wild night in the city. I have got a few ideas for you depending on what you are in the mood for and if you actually want to dress up. I think rooftop parties are so fun especially in New York. You have got great view and boozes, it’s just a totally different experience. Try this Rooftop Party in Hudson Terrace and make sure to read the description carefully because sometimes they are extra picky with the dress code like last time they didn’t let us in because I was wearing white shoes. Here a few more parties;  Pre-4th of July and Open Bar and BBQ Party.  Outfit ideas also linked below!

 

 

HAPPY 4TH!
