Things That Make Me Happy


c/o BaubleBar: Gold Chain Choker

Hi guys!! Hope you all had a great weekend! I’m so excited for Easter because I get to go home for the weekend WOOH!!  I love being out in LA but I really do miss my family.  One of the things about being out here on my own is that it gives me time to reflect and appreciate simple things that I normally would take for granted.   So lately I’ve been trying to enjoy the little things that bring a smile to my face!  Here are 13 things (my lucky number) that have made me smile this past week!
  1. Facetime sessions with my parents
  2. The view of the city while hiking on Runyon Canyon
  3. Slowly sipping my morning Cuban Coffee 
  4. Laying out by the pool and finally starting to get a golden tan!!!!
  5. The dark chocolate in my kitchen cabinet
  6. Looking at pictures of my dog back home
  7. Discovering a great new dance workout and feeling that sweet pain after I finished (you know I have to with all that chocolate I eat!)
  8. Hitting 4K instagram followers!! (YAY!!! Thank you guys!!!)
  9. The sunlight that comes into my room around 5:00pm each day. (I’ll have to take a picture soon and share it with you guys, it’s so beautiful!)
  10. The pretty yellow and white flowers blooming on every corner here in Cali
  11. When my Pandora station is totally on point while I’m stuck in traffic
  12. My evening class being cancelled!!!
  13. Booking my flight to Miami to go see my family for Easter

Another thing that made me smile a couple of weeks ago was finding this super cute pajama style top at Forever21.  I’ve wanted a top like this for a while, but the best thing about it is that it’s at a great price. I love it when I find something unexpectedly!  Here I simply styled it with denim shorts, my Gucci belt and slip on mules. Such a relaxed and easy look!  

I’d love to know what’s made you happy lately, so make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

    I LOVE this outfit. I’m all about pajama style tops lately and this one is too good. It looks perfect with your cutoffs and Gucci belt. And yes to number 11…that’s the BEST!

    That top is so fun, I love how you styled it in such a chic way. Also, there’s definitely something special about getting the time to slowly enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning. Hope your Monday is off to a great start, girl!
