FLAWLESS FOUNDATION




Foundation is one of the most important steps in good makeup. It is for this reason that it is super important to choose the most adequate type of foundation finish for our skin type, and above all, the most accurate color for our face. That is why when I received the cordial invitation from Sephorainside JCPenney  to try out Sephora’s Color IQ shade match technology to select the perfect foundation for my skin, I really was super happy.  

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to relax a bit and leave my beautiful routine of being a full time mom behind for just a moment to dedicate myself for two hours in the hands of the professionals at Sephora inside JCPenney for a one-on-one makeover.

I had the pleasure to begin this incredible process in the hands of Sephora Education Area Manager, Megan Davidson with a mini facial… This was really the best in the world. I needed to relax for a while with pure relaxation and, of course, the perfect preparation to choose and apply the foundation.

Sephora inside JCPenney and Sephora have incredible technology that allows you to identify your skin type- the Moisture Meter - allowing us to determine our skin type, whether it is oily, dry, normal, or combination. In my case, it was combination. This tool is incredible because it is exact and it helps us choose the perfect cleanser and moisturizer for our skin type while saving time.

The next step was to determine my foundation shade with Color IQ. With this technology, a Sephora Area Education Manager obtains a number by taking photos of our skin with the portable tool and inputting that number into Sephora’s portable tablet to obtain all the products that exist at Sephora that match our skin tone. In my case, we decided on MakeUp For Ever’s Ultra HD foundation for a natural finish. I really liked the process of Color IQ because is the best way to determine the perfect foundation color for your skin, so easy and precise. For me, Color IQ was a completely new experience and the best one. I have to confess that this is the first time that I have the correct foundation for day, that covers and at the same time, has a super natural look that I really love.

After applying the foundation, Petey Palomo, my other Area Education Manager that day, was the one in charge of giving color and life to my face with the beautiful selection of the best products and brands that exist at Sephora. It was really an incredible experience where I felt truly spoiled and above all, a learning experience.

Thank you very much to Sephora inside JCPenney for giving me the fabulous opportunity to be a part of this Project where I learned more about Color IQ, how to select the perfect foundation and new trends in caring for my skin.

NEW FREEDOM FOR MY HAIR


Going to the park, delighting in nature, and enjoying being a full time mom is priceless for me. I enjoy a good evening and planning new travels, projects and dreams for my family and myself.
As you may know, hair care has always been a very important part of my beauty routine. I’m a big fan of having clean and healthy hair. So much so, that I can go out without makeup on but never leave the house with messy or dirty hair. That’s why I always have product on hand that protects my hair from the sun damage, air pollution and more. But not only that… I always try to have a really good ally for hair for all my weekly’s routines…yoga, exercises, take care of my son, blogging and travel.
Today I have the privilege of sharing that I have been chosen by Herbal Essences as an ambassador for their brand. I’m very excited and feel in heaven to be able to have the opportunity to represent the brand. A brand that goes just perfect with my life style, philosophy and authenticity. Inspired by natural antioxidants that are capable of neutralizing harmful free radicals, and one of my favorite characteristics is the first natural care brand.
There are nine different collections with shampoo and conditioner with unique and distinct components for every type of hair. They have exquisite and delicate fragrances for the most demanding tastes. Each collection has bio:renew technology, which means they have extraordinary ingredients like antioxidants, aloe, and sea kelp.
The nine collections of Herbal Essences include:  Argan Oil of Morocco, Vitamin E & Cocoa Butter, Passion Flower & Rice Milk, Passion Flower & Rice Milk, Coconut Milk, Golden Moringa Oil, Cucumbers and Green Tea, Arabica Coffee Fruit, Arabica Coffee Fruit, White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint and Rosemary & Herbs. The most fascinating part of all collections is that each one represents a culture, ritual, or millennium custom, all inspired by other cultures. All of this for my hair… how exciting, right?

I’m personally beyond happy with the Cucumber &a Green Tea collection. There aren't words to describe the divine scent in this marvelous duo. Plus, I can have you sure that you can feel results in your hair after your first use. I love to know that I can wash my hair after the gym without fear of my hair drying. It’s exciting to know that I have an excellent ally for my hair that not only have unique characteristics, but also adjusts perfectly to my multitasking life. I don’t have to wait longer to give myself deep treatments every so often when I have Herbal Essences by my side.
That’s all for now, but we will have a whole year to discover and enjoy Herbal Essences together. I hope you, too, will be able to discover the best collection for you as we embark on this journey toward healthy and beautiful hair together.

Xoxo
Laura

ROAD SAFE WITH ALLSTATE



We love to go out as a family to explore. In the weekends, we always look for new places to visit. We love to go to the park with Diego, create new memories with our son, play the guitar (Diego loves musical instruments), play ball and enjoy nature are all the most incredible things we can do for our children. 

Something that is very important to us is safety when we go on the road or simply when we go to the park 15 minutes away from the house. Taking necessary precaution when driving our vehicle is essential. 
  1. It is essential to check that Diego's car seat is correctly placed, secured, and adjusted to his body. 
  2. I admit that I have a lot of toys and safe distractions for Diego as soon as I go on the road so I will not have to distract myself in passing him anything as I drive. 
  3. I never turn to give anything to Diego as I drive. The safe thing to do is to park somewhere to prevent an accident. 
  4. I leave all electronic distraction out of my reach. 


 Allstate recently released their 13th Annual America’s Best Drivers, According to the report of Allstate America's Best driver repost of 2017, Laredo, Texas came in 7th place in all of the United States. It is something that makes us happy and optimistic to continue contributing to make our city's streets safer every year. 

I admit that as I write about the road statistics, I have been deeply impacted by this topic. Reminding myself (because it is something we all know but do not always pay attention to) of the responsibility we have as we drive, not only for our safety and our loved ones', but also for those who share the road with us. 

As I researched information on something so common and concerning like the distraction while driving, I can easily say it is this millennium's wrong doing. Technology dominates us and radically changes the way we proceed while driving. 

I know that all of us who drive a motor vehicle have committed the following errors: drive with the cellphone in hand, drink or eat food, play loud music, or look through compartments in the vehicle all while we are driving. I know that all of us at one point has done this, and we do it so automatically, that we have ignored the importance of the danger in doing these things while driving. 


Allstate is calling on drivers to avoid distractions behind the wheel, especially with safety experts finding distracted driving killed almost 3,500 people and injured nearly 400,000 in the U.S. in 2015. To drive home its message, Allstate is launching its fifth annual Reality Rides® tour, featuring a simulator that provides a safe environment to learn about the often devastating, but preventable, impact of distracted driving. This year’s tour will stop in 50 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada, more than double last year’s events.

The Reality Rides simulator is a stationary vehicle with virtual reality LED screens across the windshield, displaying animated scenarios drivers often encounter. Using the steering wheel, gas and brake pedals, operators try to navigate those situations while also attempting to text message, answer phone calls or use in-car technology like GPS, all activities that frequently distract drivers in real life. Afterward, participants receive “traffic citations” that highlight real infractions they’ve committed during their simulations.

This year, Reality Rides also offers new features and enhanced technology, including touch-screen monitors that display distracted-driving facts and allow participants to take selfies to share on social media as GIFs.
Allstate is doing an incredible effort in bringing awareness and maintaining our streets safe. To stay updated in this program and their calendar, visit their Facebook page.

DEEP MOISTURE BODY WASH

Thank you Dove for sponsoring this post.




I am super happy to share with you my best ally for my skin, Dove. I had used Dove for many years and I now also use it for my family, and let me tell you that it's for sure our best secret to have healthy and hydrated skin all year, Summer through Summer.

 Bath time is more than sacred for me since it is the only time of the day that really pertains to me completely, as long my husband helps me with Diego… haha… I imagine all of the mothers understand what I am referring to! It is for this reason that choosing a good cleanser is my priority. I am personally in love with liquid cleanser as I rarely use bars. Without fear of making a mistake, Dove is my favorite.

 Today I share with you the incredible  Deep Moisture Body Wash by Dove. It is more than a bath cleanser, as it is an instant nourisher. Believe me, you can see the results within one use, your skin will appreciate it. Personally, a nourishing cleanser is essential because the city I live in has a high amount of chlorine in its water and because the skin tends to dry more easily. This product is more than incredible because when I use it, my skin feels like as if I had applied nourishing lotion. Only Dove Body Wash is made with 100% gentle cleansers, is sulfate-free and is the #1 dermatologist recommended body wash.

 These are the most renowned characteristics of DeepMoisture Body Wash:

-          Gives you softer, smoother skin after just one shower.
-          Nutrium Moisture™ technology delivers natural nutrients to the skin.
-          Nourishes deep into the surface layers of the skin
-          Helps maintain your skin’s moisture barrier as you cleanse
-          Mild, gentle formula is kind to your skin

 It's good to know that 3 in 4 dermatologists say that women often damage their skin in the shower, thinking they are caring for it, and that 88% of dermatologists advise women to use a gentle cleanser when showering.

 For these reasons, it is essential to find a good ally to contrast the eminent dryness that we face no matter the season of the year. So, when it comes to cleansing, all skin deserve gentleness, Dove is the answer. What else can we ask for? Specially to fight our skin dryness, the best answer will always be Dove. After using Dove, your skins stay so hydrated, you can feel the difference in only one use, and you will remember my words.
