Easy Ideas for Celebrating the Holidays with Family and Friends

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Dove and WeAllGrow Latina Network.


Being from a Hispanic family we use to celebrate Christmas with a huge party filled with family and friends on Christmas Eve back when I lived in Queens, New York. We would dance the night away, eat empanadas and anxiously wait until midnight to open gifts. Sounds like fun, huh? Well it was, it was amazing; however, ever since we had moved to Miami, FL things have been really different and it took some time to adjust to the old family traditions without all my aunts, uncles and cousins. So instead of focusing on the fact that it was a lonelier holiday than usual we decided to create new traditions. Let's just say that I have been blessed to build new experiences with family and friends that my holiday schedule now consists of multiple parties, dinners and gatherings. And thanks to the WeAllGrow Latina Network I am excited to be working with Dove to share with you how I prep for the holidays and our new traditions!

So the holidays are near and it seems like everyone is putting up their Christmas decorations in early November. Are you guys forgetting that we still have to celebrate Thanksgiving?! As some of you may know my boyfriend and I recently moved in together and this year we decided it would be great to bring the two families together for Thanksgiving Dinner. Well more like a feast since we are expecting a minimum of 15 people, so automatically I thought of an outdoor party in our backyard. I had the chance to bring my Pinterest board dream to life with string lights which are super easy to install with the use of Command™ Brand products from Walmart. Keep reading to find out how I put these backyard lights up with no screws or nails!

Fall is here and I've been craving a change in my hair style but since I've spent all Summer trying to grow out my hair I was a bit hesitant on doing a big chop. However I still wanted something slightly different so I figured why not go for a new hair color instead. This season is the perfect time to dye your hair because it's just the thing to do and we don't have to worry about sun or chlorine damage. So keep reading to find out how you can easily transition your hair color from Summer to Fall at Hair Cuttery without any major commitments.

Outfit of the Day: The Floral Wrap Dress


Lately I have been too busy to put full outfits together so I have been leaning more towards dresses and jumpsuits. Opting for one piece outfits allows me to get ready quicker and to be honest doesn't require much thinking time. All I have to worry about is matching the accessories to make the full ensemble even more exciting. In this case I decided to wear a V Neck Floral Wrap Dress from Make Me Chic paired with chunky heels and topped off with a straw hat. I absolutely love this dress because its so girly and flowy, giving it a relaxed and comfy vibe all while being flattering to nearly any body figure. Oh and the trick to properly transition the wrap dress to fall fashion is to start incorporating layers such as cardigans.

Fringe has been such a huge hit lately and I have fully embraced this trend through fringe heels, a fringe crossbag, a fringe belt so I had to take it to the next level with a DIY fringe project. I decided why not spice up an old denim blouse and prep for fall fashion with a super easy fashion transformation. I will be showing you guys how to create your own fringe jean jacket and don't worry, sewing skills are not necessary because we will actually be using Scotch™ Essentials products from your local Walmart store. So let's get started!
