{Outfit}: Off Shoulder Romantic Dress

Romantic Hairstyle with Flowers
Pretty off shoulder floral dress outfit


Hey guys!! Today I bring you a simple but romantic look featuring this floral off-shoulder dress I got a couple of months ago. I love how the off-shoulder detail shows a little skin (sexy!) but the overall design of the dress is elegant and classy. Paired with blue pumps and a floral hair piece, this would probably be my choice as the perfect first-date outfit! hehe. What do you guys think?

-- En Español -- Hoña chicos! Hoy les traigo un look sencillo pero romántico usando este vestido floral que conseguí hace unos meses atrás. Me encanta como el detalle de los hombros descubiertos muestra algo de piel (sexy!) pero igual el diseño del vestido sigue siendo elegante y modesto. Combinado con unos tacones azules y flores en mi cabello, siento que éste sería el look perfecto como para salir en una primera cita! jaja. Ustedes qué opinan?!

{Outfit}: Care Bears and Rainbows

Super cute Care Bears inspired outfit

Hey guys!!! You know what is one of the coolest things about getting older? Well, in my humble opinion, it's that you become more comfortable in your own skin and worry much less about what other people think of you. With that idea in mind, lately I have found myself wearing more and more """"childish"""" pieces like this Care Bears crop top and my favorite rainbow earrings. I know many may think I dress like a 10 year old little girl, but everything I wear makes me SO happy that it doesn't really matter ;)

What about you guys?! Do you worry about what others think of your style or do you just go with it?!

-- En Español -- Hola chicos!!! Saben qué es una de las cosas más cheveres de volverse mayor? Bueno, en mi humilde opinión, es que empiezas a sentirte más cómoda con quien eres y te preocupas menos por lo que los demás piensan de ti. Con esa idea en mente, últimamente me encuentro vistiendo aun más """"infantil"""" que nunca, con piezas como este tshirt de los Ositos Cariñositos y mis aretes favoritos de arcoiris. Seguro muchos pensarán que me veo como una niña de 10 años, pero la verdad es que vestirme así me hace TAN felíz que no importa ;)

Y ustedes qué opinan?! Te preocupas por lo que piensan los demás de tu estilo o te vistes como te más te gusta?

{Travel}: The Ultra Kawaii Sanrioland, Tokyo

The Ultra kawaii Sanrio Puroland theme park is a must see in Tokyo! Click through for more info and photos

Hey guys!! Next up from our Japan trip is one of my favorite experiences of all.... Sanrioland!! That's right folks, Tokyo has a theme park for Hello Kitty and all of her ultra kawaii friends! In fact, the entire little town where this park is located is known as Hello Kitty City, and with good reason because every corner of it is decorated by this popular Japanese character (even the train station!).

If you are a Hello Kitty fan and you are visiting Tokyo, then you HAVE to visit Sanrioland because it is the cutest, girliest, ultra kawaii-ist place on earth! Ok, ok, in all sincerity, the park is definitely geared for small children (not crazy adults like me, haha), so the rides are very simple and unexciting for adults. But the decor of the park is really what you are paying to see!

-- En Español -- Hola chicos!! Para el próximo post de nuestro viaje a Japón les tengo algo super especial.... nuestro día visitando Sanrioland!!! Así es chicos, Tokyo tiene una parque de diversiones de Hello Kitty y todos sus amigos ultra kawaii! Es más, el pueblo donde está localizado este parque es conocido como "La Ciudad de Hello Kitty", y con muy buena razón porque cada esquina de este lugar está decorado de este personaje tan popular de Japón (hasta la estación de tren está decorado!).

Si eres fan de Hello Kitty y estás visitando Tokyo, TIENES que visitar Sanrioland porque es el lugar más cute, girly, y kawaii de todo el mundo!! Ok, ok, para ser completamente sincera, este parque en realidad fue diseñada para niños pequeños (no para adultos locos como yo! jaja), así que las atracciones son muy sencillas y no tan emocionantes para mayores. Pero en realidad la razón por la que recomiendo visitar este parque es para disfrutar de la hermosa decoración!

The center of the park is decorated with a huge tree that lights up and that has Hello Kitty's signature bows all over it. This serves as the center stage of a colorful parade with lights, dancers, awesome costumes, and even aerolists. The rest of the park is divided by characters: Gudetama, My Melody, Little Twin Stars, Hello Kitty, etc.

El centro del parque está decorado con un árbol enooooorme lleno de luces y de los lacitos clásicos de Hello Kitty. Este árbol sirve como escenario para un desfile colorido, lleno de bailarines, disfraces geniales, y hasta acróbatas. El resto del parque está dividido por personajes: Gudetama, My Melody, Little Twin Stars, Hello Kitty, etc.

One of the cutest parts of the park is the walking tour of Hello Kitty's ultra girly home. She lives in a chic mansion, with chandeliers, bear covered furniture, colorful cakes, and more! At the end of the tour, you get to take photos with Hello Kitty herself :) .Check it out:

Una de las experiencias más adorables del parque es hacer el tour de la casa ultra glam de Hello Kitty. Ella vive en una mansión enorme, lleno de candelabros, muebles cubiertos de ositos de peluche, cakes de colores, y mucho más! Al final del tour, puedes tomarte fotitos con la mismísima Hello Kitty en persona ;)

Another of my favorite spots (and probably the best place to take cute photos in the entire park) is the home of the Little Twin Stars. The entire space is decorated with clouds, stars, and pastel colors. Soo soo sooooo cute you guys! It's like Instagram heaven, haha.

Otro de mis partes favoritas del parque (y probablemente el mejor lugar para tomar fotos taquilleras) es el hogar de los Little Twin Stars. Este área está decorada super cute con nubes, estrellas, y colores pasteles. En serio chicos, fue tan tan taaaaan cute!! El lugar perfecto para fotitos para el Instagram, haha.

And what's a theme park without its cute (and delicious!) food!! Sanrioland has a colorful rainbow food court with a wide variety of food to choose from. However, I decided to visit something far more exciting... Cinnamoroll's Dream Cafe!! I've been wanting to visit this place for YEARS to eat some of their adorable kawaii sweets; especially because Cinnamoroll is my favorite Sanrio character.

Y qué es un parque de diversiones sin comida deliciosa (y adorable!)!! Sanrioland tiene un food court colorido de arcoiris donde puedes encontrar una gran variedad de comida. Sin embargo, yo decidí visitar algo muuuucho más emocionante... Cinnamoroll's Dream Cafe!! He querido visitar este lugar desde hace AÑOS para comerme algunos de sus dulces ultra kawaii; especialmente porque Cinnamoroll es mi personaje favorito de Sanrio.

Sanrioland is definitely worth the visit if you are a fan of super cute kawaii-like decor.... even better if you have children to take with you! I hope you all enjoyed this post, and if you like Sanrio like me, leave a comment below with your favorite character!

Definitivamente vale la pena visitar a Sanrioland si eres fan de las cosas ultra kawaii.... aun mejor si tienes niños que puedes llevar contigo!! Espero que hayan disfrutado de este post, y si eres fan de Sanrio como yo, dejen un comentario en la sección de abajo con el nombre de tu personaje favorito?!

{Outfit}: Velvet Dress + Faux Fur Jacket

Hey guys!!! I don't know why, but lately I've been all about those furry jackets! Maybe it's how they feel super soft against my skin. Or maybe it's because our work set is absolutely freezing!! haha. Either way, I've been wearing them a lot lately, including this deep purple one I paired with a simple velvet dress. And to add an element of fun, I threw in at the last minute these funky sparkly tights I bought during our trip to Japan. What do you guys think of this combo?

Wishing you all a wonderful Monday!

-- En Español -- Hola chicos!! No sé por qué, pero últimamente me ha encantado usar muchos abrigos peludos!! Tal vez es porque se sienten super suavecitos contra mi piel. O tal vez es porque nuestro set de trabajo siempre está heeeelado! jaja. Cualquiera que sea la razón, he disfrutado lucirlos mucho últimamente, incluyendo este jacket morado oscuro combinado con un vestido de terciopelo. Para añadir un elemento de diversión a mi outfit, decidí también lucir estas medias brillantes que compré durante nuestro viaje a Japón. Qué les parece la combinación?

Deseándoles a todos un excelente Lunes!
