Indulge Yourself in Sweetness..

Last weekend, I hosted a spa party for my girls. A skin analyst specialist was there featuring an amazing machine that analyzes up to three layers of the skin. Through that machine, you get to know your skin better, learn where your trouble spots are, get educated on their condition, and get help and recommendations for treating them.

Many of the girls learn that their skin wasn’t actually the type they’ve always thought it was. For example, my sister had always the impression that her skin was oily to combination. However, it turned out that her skin is Normal to dry! They were all impressed with the machine and the products that were promoted. A few things I love about their products: they are all natural, cruelty free, work amazingly, and are made in the United States. [I will have more in depth review on the products]

One tip I need to share with you here is, Please Use Sunscreen Every Day of Your Life! This small step can save you so much in the future. Sunscreen now = Less Wrinkles in the future. Trust me!

Other than impressing my guests with the special facial treatments, they were all in love with the other treats. Dessert. Something you need to know about me is that I absolutely LOVE Red Velvet! That weekend was the one following Valentine’s Day, so what a better way to celebrate than having Red Velvet treats everywhere?

I love decorating; therefore, I enjoyed making a cute display out of those delicious treats. I got so many compliments on the dessert and the food. It always feels good when you leave a great impression on others. These little things make you, and the others around you, so Happy.

The menu was:

Red Velvet mini cups

Strawberry Dipped in Chocolate

Pink Champagne

Vitamin Shots

Avocado Cherry Tomato Salad

Caesar Salad

Margarita Pizza

Wings

[My family owns a few pizzerias; therefore, our guests always request having pizza and wings at our parties, because they are that delicious]

The day went by fast and everyone enjoyed their time. It was great having the girls over. I haven’t hung out with them since my wedding. We had a fantastic day together and hopefully will be planning another get together soon.

Seriously, what’s a better day than relaxing, sipping champagne, and indulging in deliciousness?

I cannot get over the Red Velvet!

Took a shot!

Since I was a little girl, I had this artistic gift. I never really worked on it to improve it and take it to the next step, but it always feels good when I create a piece on my own or design an item. Handmade pieces mean so much. Love, care, and thought is always invested in the piece.
Today is one of those days where I felt artistic and wanted to play with colors. I know I didn’t create a master piece, but I created the cutest piece. I am into more of abstract paintings. Painting one is fun, yet relaxing. Since this is February and Valentine’s day is on the corner, the brush led itself and started painting hearts. I am in love with cute outcome.

Happy Monday!

Valentines?

So what do you guys have planned for Valentine’s day? Are you one of those who hate Valentine’s day, don’t really care for it, or look forward to it every year? Personally, I love Valentine’s day. Aside from the fact that you are allowed to enjoy chocolate on that day and maybe receive flowers, I love it because it was the day my lovely handsome brother was born!
But we should never forget the reason behind this day: Saint Valentine. This day is to commemorate saint Valentine. There are many legends, stories, and history behind it. It all sums down to this: Saint Valentine was martyr of love!
