Hope you all have been having a fabulous week!
Over the past few months I’ve been on a repair, protect and regrowth hair journey, which I’ve shared on my previous post (if you haven’t had the opportunity to see it, you must! see here ). This journey started last year and it was strictly to repair my hair. I was over bleaching it, over processing it and my hair was looking very dull, dry and the amount of breakage was bad. Bad enough that it didn’t have the strength to grow past the top of my shoulders. Read More…
But first, skin care!
I love to look my very best at all times. I love having my nails done, hair done and even go the extra mile to always look put together to run errands, to go to the pool, yoga class and even to go grocery shop. Looking fly at all times makes me feel like a million bucks. But, you know one thing that can quickly put a damper in my parade and ruin it all for me? Dry, flat, pale, dull and patchy skin! Pimples on my face, dark under eyes and blemishes can really mess everything up for me. Everyone makes fun of me because my morning and night skin care routine can easily take me 10 minutes. I just love to take the time and care for my skin. I love the feeling of getting out of the shower and applying toner, serum, eye cream and the list can go on forever… being a daughter of a super model, my mom always encouraged my sisters and I to take care of our skin. (Legit! My mom earned her living as a full time model in her younger days… before she decided to give it all up to have kids… 5 that is!) Something she told us all the time was that aging is a fact of life, but looking your age is not. Yes, sounds a little vain, but it’s the truth. It’s never too early to take care of skin and I’m forever grateful for her teaching me that at such a young age. She always told us to love our skin because beautiful skin doesn’t come from makeup. If your skin is looking sad, your makeup will too. Read More…
Life is short, make each hair flip fabulous
Hi fancy friends! Hope you had a great weekend!
It’s been a minute since we’ve chatted about hair on here! As you all know, I love a healthy, shiny, full, luscious hair… A bad hair day for me means a bad day period! It’s been this way for me since I can remember and the more I chat with people about hair, the more I realize that I’m not the only one.
Do you remember watching America’s Top Model show with Tyra Banks? Do you remember when she would chop certain girls hair and they would cry, throw a full blown grown up tantrum? Hair can really boost someone’s self esteem and confidence. It doesn’t necessarily means it needs to be long. Just a certain hairstyle, certain length can really make you feel a certain way.
Invest in your hair, it is the crown you never take off!
This past weekend I got to spend my Saturday soaking up the sun with a delicious mango mojito on hand, toes in the water floating around in a huge tropical pineapple. If you follow me on my social media platforms (@AFancyAffair) this is no new news for you.
The weather couldn’t be more perfect and the mood was just right! I truly believe I was made for sunny days. Being sun kissed is my therapy. Legit, it just relaxes me and it really makes me smile from the inside out, happiness comes from the bottom of my heart. Read More…
Hey fancy friends!
I was made for summer days! This is my favorite season of the year. Yeah, it’s a really hot and sometimes sticky and sweaty, but not gonna lie, I love it! I love all the vibrant colors, the happy vibes, the long days and all the fun pool, bbq and beach parties! And of course, all the shopping. For some reason, this season inspires me to shop. I feel inspired by all the colors, prints and cool trends that summer brings. I like the easy, breezy outfits. High slits, cropped tops, the showing of the legs and all the fun accessories. Summer is my jam! So I went to Forever 21, H&M, Target and also picked up a few things from my store Fancy Boutique and wanted to share it with you. I got sandals, accessories, athletic wear and vacation outfits that can be mixed matched for brunch or any day event to a fun night out. The best part is that they are all under $40 dollars outfits. Isn’t that great?
Hope you enjoy this huge summer try on haul video!
Thank you for stopping by and ill catch you on my next post!
Hi friends! Today’s post is a very casual one, its just me and you chatting and playing with the new Soap & Glory make-up. I swatch it, review it and try it on with you. You get to see my first reaction when applying each item. Hope you like this type of video! I had so much fun filming it.
I’ve been on the go, go, go lately and this precious bag has been everywhere with me. Meet the POPPINS bag by JEMMA. This is the second bag I have from this brand (remember this post and this one?), I love their stuff! Named after Mary Poppins – POPPINS was inspired by the Mary Poppins’s Magic Bag (we all need one of those and now you can have it!) a bag that is versatile, practical and at the same time truly feminine with just the right amount of gold details. Side note: I loved that movie when I was little!! Anyone else? I’ve carried my black Poppins bag from job interviews, meetings, to showrooms to purchase new merchandise for my store to a weekend getaway! The smooth Italian leather allows the structure of the bag to maintain its shape no matter how stuffed it is, and only God knows how much stuff I put in my bag. I need to always have my desk planner, laptop, notebook, camera, make-up bag, water bottle, a few more necessities and the fact that the shape doesn’t change means the bag always looks and sits pretty. This bag is perfect for professional settings like meetings and interviews to a more casual setting like weekend getaways. Read More…
Miamiiii it’s time to warm up! I can’t wait for the warmer sunny days, because I must say that this feels like the longest winter season we have had in a while. I know that many of you don’t consider 75 degrees cold weather, but it is for Miamians. Ha. ha! This look that I’m wearing here is one that I have been rocking either paired together (repeat offender) or separate. This cute tie up cropped sweater is a fave of mine and pairs well with skirts, pants and denim for a more casual look. Now let’s talk about these Steve Madden boots. Don’t they look like the Christian Louboutin So Kate boot version? Not sure if its the height of the heel or just the shape of the front of the boot, but I sure do feel very sexy wearing them!

Hi friends! Hope all is well
I filmed a quick get ready with me make up video during the holiday season (November-ish) and never got around to editing it and posting it. Sorry! It’s a look I’ve been wearing very often (see pics below). However, its such a pretty make-up look that an be worn now for Valentines day. The red bold lips is such a sexy touch that looks good on all skin tones. I hope you like this video!

We all need a little break sometimes. Resting doesn’t mean you quit, it’s a gift to recharge your mind, body and soul!
A little before the holiday season started, sometime around November, I started to back away from social media and then took a full blown break. I’ve taken short breaks here and there, but this one was a long one. I needed it! This time, I was rarely posting and staying active. I needed a little time away to regroup, recharge and just sit still when I had a chance. Let’s be honest, sometimes we wake up and before we even get up from bed we already opened our social media platforms and bombarded our brains with thoughts and things. Believe it or not, I’m not the type to do that. I can go days without opening IG and other platforms. But while creating content, you need to stay active and post and interact. This time I pressed pause on all the content and just enjoyed the moment knowing that I didn’t have to post anything. Read More…
