We had heard the horror stories of attempting to conquer Disney with a toddler. The tales of long lines, the hot Orlando sun and no available reservations for lunch and dinner. The stories of tantrums over not being able to see Elsa. The exuberant cost of having to buy every souvenir known to man. And lastly, the nightmares of not being able to disconnect from Disney itself once the park day was done (hotels that play theme music throughout their grounds, pools with bright colored character sculptures, rooms with only Disney movies playing and so on and so on). Needless to say, we were nervous and maybe a little scared about our trip to Orlando.
That’s why when it came time to look for where to stay we decided to research a little and find a hotel that would be able to provide us (the adults) with a vacation of our own without excluding little Mia.
Enter (and check in) to the Four Seasons Orlando. Located on Walt Disney World Resort, this property is everything you’d expect from the Four Seasons without sacrificing quality family time.

I love the idea of having one item of clothing that looks like two…it’s like pretending to have actually planned your outfit when in fact, all you did was zip it up ;)
That’s the case with this dress from Banana Republic. The top is cut to look like you’re wearing a matching crop top (complete with back cut out) but it’s actually just one fit and flare dress. Love, right? I adore its fit so much that I purchased this dress in this fun spring print and in a solid black…because when a dress fits, buy it in every color! At least that’s my motto.

I’m so happy to read/see that the weathers are warming up all over the country and not just here in Miami. You all must be so excited to bare those legs, wear those short dresses and enjoy not being cold. Frankly, I don’t think my Miami blood could handle the winters anymore…I need the heat. Well, for those of you just starting to build your spring wardrobe, can I please suggest this fabulous little number by 4.Collective? I mean, the color is absolutely perfect and although you could pair this dress with dressier accessories, I loved the way it looked in this casual style. Love the basketweave too…it gives this simple silhouette an elegant touch.

Green is not a color I envy normally…it’s probably the color I own the least of. My closet is mostly a sea of neutrals so I was kind of hesitant when I saw this dress. I almost didn’t try it on but the simplicity of it and the material (100% silk) talked me into it. I’m so happy I did because I loved how it fit and how ridiculously easy it is to wear. I have worn this at least three times in the last month…and that’s a lot for me. I’ve worn it with black sandals, closed toe heels and of course, these strappy babies. So, I stand/sit here corrected with my impression of the color green…turns out it’s a pretty fab color to wear! Continue reading →
This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Vi and Va Dolls and Latina Bloggers Connect but all opinions are my own.
No doubt you’ll be seeing them around town soon and especially in little hands. They’re exclusively sold at Target and thanks to their unique story, they’re geared towards embracing and honoring ethnic diversity. It’s so important that small children have toys that are relatable to them in skin tone, culture and names. How wonderful that this line provides little ones with the ability to appreciate the bonds of a Hispanic culture and the importance of family.
We received all four (4) dolls to try out and they’re all super fun and interesting. Mia loved being able to interchange their shoes, earrings and accessories (like the guitar, the boom box and the paint brush). Plus they all had a lot of hair…major bonus points for my little diva girl that loves styling her own hair. Continue reading →
Well, not really devil…more like an angel if you ask me ;) but I will say that this stunning little dress did make me feel a little devilish. It’s short, sassy but totally elegant. Once again, 4.Collective has proven to me that they’re totally in tune with women and designing dresses that make us feel confident and sexy. I mean, is this verona jacquard fit and flare dress not absolutely perfect for this princess? Yes, yes, it is.
We have a summer wedding coming up and this dress will be perfect for it. I love the light blue hue, the delicate silver thread that is woven throughout and the absolutely chicest cap sleeves I’ve seen in a long time. I paired it with some silver heels I’ve had for a couple years and it was love at first sight.
4.Collective’s spring/summer collection has me swooning…seriously, I’ll take one of each please! I’ve got a couple more pieces from this company that I’ll be sharing and I have a feeling you’ll be loving their new stuff too.
