Have you stumbled upon those photos of beautiful, bright and colorful painted houses lined up all together with their reflection on canal waters when browsing the internet? And your instant thought upon looking at them is "Oh that's Venice."?
If yes, that's great, but in actuality, most of those photos are not taken from Venice, but one of its surrounding islands - most particularly Burano island.

With NorCal's crazy summer heat nowadays, a very refreshing visit to Nekter Juice Bar was much needed last weekend.
Nekter Juice Bar has been in business since 2010 but locations nearby me only opened in the passed recent years and I got to visit the one in Sacramento, Ca for the first time.
Both my husband and I were so excited because we both love fresh and healthy drinks and snacks. Nekter Juice Bar offers freshly made juices, smoothies and acai bowls without any mystery ingredients - NO hidden fillers, NO unnecessary sugars, NO processed ingredients & NO artificial flavors!

TRAVEL | San Diego's beaches, food and weather - Exploring America's Finest City with my Soulmates Collection shoes!

**Featured shoes are from Soulmates Collection.

Beautiful beaches, amazing food and warm weather define a perfect summer! And San Diego, Ca presents them all... No wonder why it's known as America's Finest City!
It is always relaxing being in San Diego - the weather is always fair(not so hot and not so cold); the traffic is way less crazy compared to other major California cities; the warm watered-beaches surrounding the city each have their unique features that can cater to different types of audience; and the food - great restaurants and cafes are everywhere!

TRAVEL | Sigthseeing and Foodtrip in LA with Teddy Blake's Bella Satchel

**Featured bag is from Teddy Blake.

Recently, my husband and I decided to do a short trip to SoCal and it was amazing!
Although, we live fairly close to SoCal, we realized that we haven't really explored the Los Angeles/San Diego area thoroughly as a couple, like we usually do when vacationing in Europe.. (how sad, you may say! lol)
We've been to Socal a few times, mostly with family, so we did the same things everytime - meaning, Disneyland, Universal Studios and Sea World, and weren't really adventurous to see and experience new things. So that's what we did this time!

TRAVEL | What to eat in Bologna - Italy's Food Capital City

I'm originally from Italy's capital city of food - Bologna. Although I clearly remember it being already abundant with various kinds of food and places to eat at over 10 years ago, I really didn't imagine that its food industry will have greatly developed and expanded like to how it is now.
From its original masterpieces of pasta, tortellini, pizza, lasagna, prosciutto, salame, gelato & caffe', Bologna over the years has embraced new ways to perfect their cuisine and dishes while maintaining their original and authentic flavors, as well as infusing some foreign tastes.

ACCESSORY | A beautiful and timeless necklace

**The featured necklace is from Capsul Jewelry.
**The beautiful peplum dress is from Leota New York.
**The matching purse is from Foley and Corinna.
**The comfy avarca sandals are from Avarca Store.

Layering jewelries especially necklaces is so popular nowadays that I must admit, I find it so trendy and cool myself too.
Layered necklaces look so gorgeous on photos and are very Instagram worthy to post! But on this blog post, I hope to highlight a beautiful necklace on its own that I am sure will also stand out even more when worn layered with other necklaces.

STYLE | Wedding Guest Dresses - My Picks and Where to buy them

-This post is not sponsored.-

Wedding season is here once again and that means hunting for those perfect wedding guest dresses!
I love light-bright and floral dresses that compliment the warm & happy mood of weddings. And since I've also been loving pastel hues lately, my top picks will include a lot of them.

TRAVEL | What's inside my travel backpack?

**Featured backpack is from MMS brands.
**Featured pants are from Shop the Mint.

My favorite travel bag, especially on long flights, is a backpack.
It's roomy, convenient to carry & trendy.

FASHION | Getting Ready for Summer with my Nalho sandals

**Featured sandals are from Nalho.
**Featured denim jacket is from Wantable.

Who's ready for summer? It's never too early!
Days for dresses, shorts, tank tops, sandals & flip flops are coming!
As much as I hate the thought of super warm summer temps, I do love the fact that I can dress/style up light and minimal...

So yes, my all-time main fashion goal for summer time is to be as comfortable and cool as I can to beat the summer heat! And that I mean from head to toe.

STYLE | Simple ways to create different looks with gaucho pants and spring sweaters

**Featured tops are from Sita Murt.
**Featured black purse is from The Purse Club.
**Featured crossbody bag is from Wantable.

Gaucho pants are still rockin' this year and are one of those pieces that can be  very tricky to style.
One can either look like a very chic fashion trender when these pants are styled correctly or end up looking like someone who just jumped out of bed with ungroomed baggy sleeping pants on.

On this article, let's try to do the right way of styling the famous wide-legged gaucho pants.. 
I created two very simple looks with my old-fave white gaucho pants from Gap, pairing them with 2 light top sweaters from Sita Murt with a purse from The Purse Club and a crossbody bag from Wantable that can be perfect for this Spring season's outfits.

FASHION | How to Style a jersey dress to get that chic laid-back look

**The featured dress is from Leota New York.
**The featured sneakers are from Rocketdog Footwear.

A universal all-time fave go-to look is the laid-back style.
That often means, a shirt/sweater with shorts or jeans and sneakers.
And anyone would agree that "comfort" is usually the main goal of this type of look or style, no matter what the season may be.
But then mix-matching those same types of pieces can get boring overtime.
So one way I spice it up without losing that comfortable/relaxed feeling but just adding flare to it, is by matching a jersey dress with sneakers.

HOME DECOR | My personal review of Nectar Sleep Mattress

***The featured mattress is from Nectar Sleep.

My largest blogger mail so far came in the mail.
It's 54 inches wide, 75 inches long and 11 inches thick. Any guess on what it is?

"A mattress, indeed!" I received a full size mattress with 2 matching pillows for free from Nectar in exchange for my honest review.

It came at a perfect time because my husband and I just moved to a new place, and a brand new mattress surely is a perfect housewarming gift.

STYLE | Coloring my Spring 2018 with lots of pastel hues!

**Featured dungarees are from Lucy and Yak
**Featured moccasins are from Lamo Footwear

The month of March officially started and that means only one thing for me - Spring has arrived!
And thanks to the California weather, spring's mild chilly/warm temps are already in the air even before spring's official start date - March 20th..
This plainly means, more sunny days are up! Trees start to fill their branches with leaves again.. Beautiful and colorful flowers are to blossom!
Therefore making way to colorful and bright outfits to flaunt...

BLOGGING TIPS | How Do I get Clothes and other things for FREE to blog about?

**Featured Suede Jacket is from !

Yes, it's only been 7 months since I started blogging & I don't have tens of thousands of followers yet on my Instagram account and blog, so practically I'm still a newbie in the blogging world, but I have been receiving quite a lot of quality "blogger mails / freebies" to test and keep, to write about and to post.. So, many has been asking me "how do I do it?"

Like you, I am also still surprised and overwhelmed on how many "free gifts" just keep coming from brands over the passed few months, in exchange for my honest reviews and posts. And more than anything else, I am very much thankful and delighted that the brands/companies I have worked with and am currently working with still, are so generous not only of their products to give but most importantly of their trust and confidence to allow me to feature and market their brand in their behalf.

So then going back to the question, "How do I land collaboration projects that allow me to get free products?"

SPONSORED | A beautiful bracelet with a hair tie!

**The featured hair tie bracelet is from Maria Shireen
Is the weather super warm and your hair is down making you sweat more and be uncomfortable? or are you working so hard on something and your hair just keeps getting/falling on your face and eyes making you not getting anything done?
Yes?! - a hair tie is the answer!
So, you look around and/or search inside your bag for one, and there's none!
If you're like me, this is a very common scenario, where I find my hair ties always misplaced and nowhere to be seen when I need one the most! Aggravating right?! lol

FASHION | The "black bag" essential..

**The featured bag is from Teddy Blake .

Out of all the bags/purses you may own, I'm sure you have that certain one that you always use - either because of its color, style or size, right?
Well, I have.... a chic yet classy, small to medium sized, black bag!
But recently, I have found the one that has those exact bag specifications which can finally replace my old, torn apart "former fave bag".. lol

REVIEW | Ozalia Boots - the softest and warmest winter boots!

***The Icon Short boots were from Ozalia boots.

Everytime I feel cold, the part of my body that feels it first and the most are my "feet"... And usually, even with layered socks/leggings and with boots, they're still cold during winter season...
Perfectly, the Icon Short in black from Ozalia boots arrived in time - when my feet complains about the cold the most - December to January months!
