Baby Jayden Turns 8

img_1439

My baby Jayden turned 8 years old. Jayden is getting older, this brings so much joy to my spirit along with sadness. The fact is that he is getting older and the truth is my heart feels like I’m losing him. Life is a full circle and I realize that one day he will hold his own family. Today I want to protect him and keep him as youthful as possible. Nevertheless, those are my own selfish needs. So today, tomorrow and forever I want to establish memories that will last him a lifetime.  
So we decided to bring our son to Disney as his birthday gift. Jayden had no thought that he would be missing school or even heading to Disney. I wanted everything to be a surprise. Once we arrived at the airport, I even noted that we were only watching planes take off. Hence, I don’t genuinely think he fell for that one, but I still tried to keep it a secret. Once we arrived to the hotel he finally opened his magic band box. We screamed surprise!!! You are going to Disney both Jayden and Josiah screamed with full excitement.

I was ready to relish every single moment from parks to beaches. Let’s simply say we had a busy agenda. The first morning we set off to Magic Kingdom. Magic kingdom is the place that reminds you that you can dream again, no matter what age you are. As soon as you walk in the castle takes over your view. You see nothing else but the beauty of the scene. The boys rose and screamed to see what else Magic Kingdom had to offer. From displays and rides everything was a dream. However the dreaming didn’t stop there the parades and attractions made you forget about the heat. The boys seemed hot, but they kept active and excited to take onto the next attraction. 

I was simply excited to see their expressions and how much joy they felt. Magic kingdom is magical and filled with amazing rides. Our days were long in each park, but we managed to take the boys in most of the rides and see the plays. I believe that they loved everything about the Magic Kingdom. As the day ended, we didn’t hesitate to eat at the amazing eateries and enjoy the churro stands. The next days were also booked with Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.  

My boys love animals so we wanted to host Jayden’s actual birthday at Animal Kingdom. It was so liberating everyone enjoyed each other’s company. People were dancing and just having so much fun. The boys walked around the grounds and they simply seemed to be living in that moment with so much happiness. The tree of life honestly is life, it brings out so much joy. The rides, especially had me panicking but they boys didn’t seem to worry. What I really liked about Animal Kingdom was the shade that we sustained from the trees. It honestly helped us manage better with the heat.  


Jayden had all the Disney characters come out and sing to him. Jayden was so glad and thrilled to see all the characters especially his favorite Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse and the rest of the Disney characters gave Jayden a special gift and wished him a Happy birthday. The day was long, but Roger and I were over the moon to see our children so happy in such a magical space.  We also added a helicopter ride to the list of things to do. Which by the way I was freaking out like a typical mom.  
The days that we were at the hotel we enjoyed the pool and still managed to travel to Clearwater and Saratoga. The beaches in Orlando are truly beautiful I felt as if I had gone into a jacuzzi. The boys enjoyed making sand castles and running around. As for myself, I just lay in the water, it was so awesome. The nearby restaurants were so cute and the food was to die for.   Everything was perfect for Jayden’s birthday getaway. The last attraction park we attended was the Hollywood studios. It was so unique and fun! The amount of history was amazing to watch.  

I have to also prepare a confession, I truly dislike rides. For my baby Jayden we all decided to ride the Tower of Terror, which by the way was so scary and I believed I was going to die. But needless to say I could crack it off my to do list. The whole Disney experience with my family was truly a blessing and full of magic. I will go back in a heartbeat. So on that note, my dear readers, don’t forget to follow my journey @BeautyBeyondFashion_  and take over your dreams.

#LipStickIsMyVice

Hey, my readers, it’s been a while, but let’s start off by saying welcome May. May arrived with rain and let’s add, it was very depressing. So let’s just say I have been acting like a little bear and trying to hibernate. The little ones are getting into trouble and keeping me engaged. Every day I want to just take a walk in the park or simply run around. Notwithstanding the weather here in New Jersey has been horrible. But let’s just say that gives me more time to stay indoors and create amazing looks with my fav’s Urban decay cosmetics.  


I mentioned many times that I love what I do and I love the people that I’m fortunate to cultivate with. I’m able to express myself and shape with fabulous companies. Urban Decay has been so awesome to me and my brand. I was fortunate enough to be part of Ruby Rose collaboration with UD in NYC. The whole day was so hectic for me, nevertheless, I experienced an amazing time and loved the new collection by Ruby Rose. Whatever Urban Decay touches turns into magic right in front our eyes.  

Urban Decay is a brand that has joined forces with some of our favorite artist and personas. I enjoy the way that the company allows us to style our favorite looks by our favorite artist. UD allows you to look and feel the part. The UD cosmetic line is unique and worthy of having in your vanity. Believe me when I say I live for Urban Decay cosmetics, they are amazing. The quality is engaging and captivating to any audience. I was surrounded by my favorite youtubers and friends. So a rainy day turned out amazing and my Uber service became a photo shoot. The evening was impressive and magically thank you my dear readers, don’t forget to follow my journey BeautyBeyondFashion_

Pure Energy Aveda

The fragrance as I walked into Aveda was honestly calming. I was a greeted with a cup of coffee that was much needed. Let’s just say the pampering started as I walked in. I felt relaxed and in great hands. I think that you as a woman you always want to walk in and be treated like a queen and Aveda didn’t fail.

As I enjoyed my cup of coffee, I chatted with the beautiful Janelle about how Aveda is a product that preserves your hair healthy and keeps it hydrated. Aveda hydrates your hair & moisturizes 95% ingredients are mostly natural and organic. Aveda has a collection of makeup as well and it does operate to perfection. I was so excited to see what Janelle can do with my hair. We talked about colors and styling. But most importantly, we talked about maintaining my hair healthy.


In my opinion you can have the best service, but the real work needs to tally. Pure Energy Hair Studio conquered exactly what I desired. I desired to have healthy hair without having to add so many damaging products. I desired to have strength added to my hair. Janelle meets my expectations and perfected the perfect gloss. If I ever desire to go back to my blonde locks I definitely know where to proceed. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to be pampered and take in beautiful hair.

Lads and ladies when it comes down to your hair don’t ever settle. For a long time I was in denial. I ultimately found a place that attends to me despite a room full of customers. Hand massage, coffee refills and best of all priceless hair treatment. Thank you Aveda and Pure Energy for giving my hair life again. Follow my journey, my dear readers BeautyBeyondFashion_

Turning 29 


Expectations are very far and in between. As the years pass me by I feel like I’m racing time. This is the last year in my 20’s since I just turned 29. It’s bitter sweet I couldn’t even blow out my candles because I fear my 30’s. I really have taken time for granted. I don’t wish to rewind time I like to slow it down.

 I don’t know what’s worst seeing my children get older or noticing my own years. I do believe in living the moment with great people around me. As I get older I start to understand that I have to live for me and accomplish for my loved ones. Life should not ever be taken for granted. Life should be explored and valued. So this year my biggest wish is to enjoy and laugh more than ever.

The fact is I’m becoming older. I have become very strong and I love that with age I have also gained so much bravery. Courage and strength are both amazing qualities to attain. The older I get I also feel more confident. As a mother, friend and lover I want to excel. I don’t want short cuts to temporary friendships. I want to build long lasting friendships.  Reminder love the space you are in. Follow my journey my dear readers BeautyBeyondFashion_

Change Your Hair by L’Oreal 

 
Every young woman loves to try amazing products. And then this definitely includes me. I was then scared to dye my blonde locks. In the end, I decided to do a copper color instead of going to a drastic dark color. L’Oreal came to my rescue and has finally revamped my dry hair.  

L’Oreal carries a line that brings healing to your hair. At the moment that’s exactly what I asked. I wanted a hair line that smelled awesome and could bring the volume back. Not simply did the shampoos glide through my hair I experienced the best scalp massage. My hair was really dry after being blonde for 5 years. This was just what my hair needed to look alive #ExtrodinaryHair
