Hello Loves,

Happy New Year! I hope you all are doing well. I am sharing with you my latest adventures from January. I had the pleasure to go a quick weekend getaway to Canada! Yes, Oh Canada! I actually went to Vancouver, British Columbia to be exact and it was an amazing time.

First of all, why? Well, airplane tickets were under $200 roundtrip on Orbitz and I was like why like not? I didn't know much about Vancouver but I was open for a quick weekend getaway and some exploring in a different country. 

Below are some a few snapshots of my time in Vancouver and also a vlog for you all to sit back and enjoy!

Hello Loves,

As the nights and morning starting getting colder nothing like coming home after a long day work to some good TV and entertainment. Just the perfect time to start binge-watching a new show, scary movies or novelas!




Last week I had the pleasure of hanging out with a couple Bay Area Latina Bloggers at the Comcast Silicon Valley Innovation Center to learn about the amazing things happening these next two weeks in the world of entertainment. Xfinity is launching their Free Pass Latino!

Basically, it's a free access pass for two weeks starting on Monday, October 15th through Sunday, October 28th where any Comcast Xfinity X1 customer can binge-watch more than 1,000 hours of entertainment for free. Let the binge-watching begin!



With the FreePass Latino, you can watch current TV shows like Larrymania or Nuestra Belleza Latina or watch the classic novelas like La Hija del Mariachi. If you aren’t to TV shows you can always watch a good movie like The Amazing Spiderman and blockbuster films like Evil Dead and other amazing TV shows. A plus that they have the latest music videos featuring artists like Bad Bunny to Cardi B! You can listen to the latest hit wonders all in one place!


At the Comcast Silicon Valley Innovation Center, we heard from Millie Zdziebkowski, Senior Director of Multicultural Services at Comcast and Robert Martinez, Product Development Senior Manager. And let me tell you that both Robert and Millie are doing amazing things at Comcast for Latinos. Millie is working hard with major networks to make sure we have amazing content that we feel connected to entertainment like novelas, music and our own Latino Channel. Robert is working with engineers and program developers to make our viewing experience with the X1 Voice Remote easy as possible. It was great and exciting to hear all the innovative things happening at Comcast.


I don’t know about you but as an Xfinity customer, I am going to make sure I use these two free weeks for lots of exploration of new shows and re-watch some of my all-time favorites like Disney’s Halloweentown and new Latin American movies. I am so excited!

Hello Loves,

Welcome back to my blog! Today I will be sharing the latest makeup collaboration that I picked up. The latest makeup collaboration is the @iluvsarahii X Dose of Colors Collection that came out last month and if you haven't had the chance to get it I would suggest getting your hands on at least one item! They are amazing and caught me by surprise.

Also, I have a video for you all at the bottom of this post if you want to see me give you all the swatches and first impressions. Check out below!  


So the entire collection is composed of 4 matte lipsticks, 2 lip glosses, 2 highlighters and 1 eyeshadow palette. Each product ranges from $17 to $35 and is available at DoseofColors.com or in-stores at your local Ulta. 


The collection includes a beautiful range of colors of which you can use for everyday looks or for your special nights out as well. My favorites were the lippies because I don't typically like nude lipsticks but the nude chica lippie made me accept that some nudes don't look me you look pale and dehydrated. 



 The two highlighting palette's look amazing! One swatch and look at that shine. Bathe and Sol Mate will keep your highlight look popping!


If you would like to see a more detailed review or first impression thoughts feel free to check out my video below where you will be able to see my thoughts on the iluvsarahii Dose of Colors collection.

Also, this post is not sponsored. I purchased all the items with my own money and I liked it so much that I felt that sharing my thoughts on it.





Hell Loves,

Welcome back! This post is in conjunction part to my previous post to Spain. Part two of my trip to Europe was visiting the beautiful country of Italia as well. 

Our trip to Italia started by taking a ferry boat from Barcelona to Civitavecchia, Italy where we were going to be staying for 3 nights before the end of the trip. Civitavecchia is cute little town with a great people and food, it's about an 1 hour away from Roma.

Our ferry boat before departing Barcelona's port.
Our commute to Civitavecchia took about 13 hours and felt like forever but nevertheless, I embraced that long day as part of the experience. Honestly, I have never stayed on a boat cabin before so this was new all to me and definitely, part of the experience was getting seasick. I am so thankful that I knew from my Puerto Vallarta trip that I do get seasick. I was very prepared for the ferry boat ride and I still got a bit seasick.
Mediterranean Sea
One of the first places I stopped by was to get pizza from the nearby restaurants of which I enjoyed it so much! The pizza is so different than pizza here in the United States for once the pizza's crust is thin of which I like and pepperoni on their pizza is not a thing there. I couldn't recommend a place of where to buy pizza in Italy but basically, anywhere in Italy,  you will find yummy pizza.

The beautiful balconies. 

1) La Fontana Di Trevi
This place is beyond unbelievable and definitely a place where you want to make a wish or two. I remember seeing this in the Lizzie McGuire movie and have always seen this place as magical. I couldn't wait to throw a Mexican peso and make a wish and hope to see a Pablo (Lizzie McGuire reference) but that didn't happen. This place caught me by surprise because it is hidden in between buildings so you definitely need a map, google or a tour guide helping you get there. Also, it's gorgeous!

The mini cars around Italy that drive around narrow streets.
2) The Spanish Steps
Another beautiful place that has a gorgeous fountain and steps leading into Trinitá dei Monti Chruch. At the bottom of the Spanish Steps is the fountain and surrounding shops from Gucci, Prada and etc. Also, it's a great place for pictures and shopping. The Spanish Steps entail 135 of which you can go up to see the Trinitá dei Monti Chruch.

3) Vatican City
This place is the capital of the Roman Catholic Chruch and home to the Pope, a, t and architecture. It is a huge place that has many museums including Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling piece that is jaw-dropping gorgeous. Also, there a lot of statues and famous Roman statues there as well. FYI, it is hot and very very crowded. Make sure to bring a water, a hat and a fan. Other than it is a place to see.

A Pope, I don't know which one.

4) Colosseum, Anfiteatro Flavio
I think this was the cherry on top of visiting Rome being able to walk through the walls of the Colosseum and experience history. It is unbelievable and crazy to think this building is still up after so many many years. As a history major and person who has always been fascinated with history, I couldn't believe I was there. This place is so rich in history that you forget about the little shade there is there. But overall, this was my favorite place of visiting Rome. It's truly a wonder of the world.

5) Pantheon
This building is said to be the perfect building in terms of shape and sizes. I didn't get the chance to go inside because I got there a little bit too late but it looked amazing and almost perfect on the outside. It is definitely a must see in Rome. Also, there is a lot of people in that area and nearby shops where you can buy food and gifts.

Lastly, I am leaving you here with my vlog where I visit all 5 must-visit places in beautiful Roma, Italy. Check it out and hope you enjoy it as much I did!
