These days, my life is nothing but hectic! Between work, blogging and life, I'm always on the go! I always look for simple easy ways to make my everyday life just that much easier. It's no secret everyone knows I'm a huge fan of Keratin products which is why I was really excited to try out TRESemme's 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection! I keratin treat my hair every 6 months so it's very important to me to find products with Keratin to prolong the life of my treatment while not having me break the bank! This line promises 7 full days of salon-gorgeous hair that will hold its smooth, frizz free shine all week long! -- This is golden especially since, like I said, some of my weeks are so busy and I am always on the go.
The 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection that I used this past week consisted of: Keratin Smooth 7 Day Shampoo, Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth Conditioner and Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth Heat Activated Treatment. Above you will see my 7 days of hairstyles all created during my week of using this collection. As my keratin treatment is starting to fade out (I did it a few months ago), I am starting to see a bit of my frizz returning. During the week of using this 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection, my hair was frizz-free and fabulous. So much so that I already went to the store to buy another set since I don't want to run out! Plus, lets be honest, frizz-free salon gorgeous hair make it way more manageable with styling and just makes you feel like a plain movie star ;)

This beach here was the one right by our home in the Dominican Republic. It is unbelievable waking up everyday knowing this beautiful beach exists right up the street from our home. What I noticed in the DR were all these fishing boats docked right on the sand along almost every beach I went to during my stay. They were so cute, so colorful and just so inspiring. Inspiring because I saw the men who would take these boats out to fish the fresh fish that we would later eat that night. I love the hard working atmosphere of this island yet its still so carefree and does something different to you. Going back can't come soon enough!
Playa el Valle in the Dominican Republic is located on the Samana Peninsula and probably one of the most natural places I've ever seen. To get there we drove about an hour from Las Terrenas through a few windy and then sandy roads. Towards the end we had to cross a small river (sounds scary than it actually was) and a little while longer we were there! Playa el Valle is completely untouched and so incredibly stunning. You will only hear birds and the sound from the waves crashing in the ocean. The locals there live almost completely from their land -- it is fascinating. They grow coconuts, coffee, cacao and pineapple. I saw locals catching fish and we ate at the most amazing little local restaurant on the beach where food was cooked on wood fire (literally), the fresh fish we ate had been just caught and the water we drank came in the form of five fresh coconuts (one for each of us).
The beach itself is beyond words to describe it -- but i'll try. It is a wide beach divided in 2 parts by a large rock that goes into the ocean. That rock has caves inside where fresh water comes out. It's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen and I hope some of the beauty shows through in the photos above.
Our friends (left) Tony and Gisela were the ones who brought us to this beautiful and secluded beach and showed us another side to the Samana peninsula. Tony has been a great friend of ours and is actually the agent who helped us find our dream home in Las Terrenas! Gisela is in charge of Villa Rentals and the two make an amazing pair to know in the DR! For more info visit their websites at immomexx.info & lasterrenasrental.com!
Don't forget to "pin" your favorite looks from today's post!
While in the Caribbean it was all about light, effortless pieces. I got this Karen Kane ensemble just before my trip and it was absolutely perfect-- I think I even wore it on two different occasions! I love that I didn't have to think about what I was wearing that day because the top and bottom matched exactly! Also, you'll be seeing a lot of this Tory Burch tote in upcoming photos since it was the only bag I carried with me during the trip -- the most perfect beach bag! This photo was taken on our front porch where we often spend time since in the Caribbean, home is always in the outdoors!
P.S. I'm dying to share that I was recently featured in two Lucky Magazine posts on their website! The first was a post all about monochromatic dressing and the other was featured in their top posts for the week on their homepage! Can you say #pinchme ?
We all know yesterday was Oscar Sunday, were you watching?! I have to say I LOVED this year's Oscars -- not only for the fashion but the whole show was so entertaining and funny! I love Ellen!! She should seriously host every year, I'd never get sick of her! Anyways lets get to the fashion. I loved Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, Amy Adams and Kate Hudson! One trend in particular that I was loving however, was all the pretty blue I saw on the red carpet which is what I wanted to convey in a daytime inspired look! What was your favorite trend of the night?!

When I'm not blogging, working and doing whatever else I do on a regular basis, I love to just relax on my couch with a glass of wine and my favorite TV shows. I'm all about finding new TV shows to get me hooked which is why I wanted to share for everyone to check out the amazon original pilot, The Rebels! Julie is in over her head when her husband suddenly dies leaving her as sole owner of The LA Rebels, a pro-football team! The episode is free to watch with Amazon Prime and if you don't have Amazon Prime, there is a free 30 day trial!
Once you watch the entire episode, don't forget to rate it 5 stars as this will determine whether or not the pilot is pickd up for a series. Your vote matters!!
