Jane the Virgin

Jane the Virgin finally came back from their winter hiatus and I couldn’t wait to watch. Of course I had to wait until this morning and watch it on Hulu on the iPad but I take what I can get. Totally worth it though it was a great episode, as usual! This is why this show won so many awards so far this year.

So chapter 9 left off with Jane’s grandmother. She was thrown down the stairs by the biatch of Natalia/Petra’s mom. And we don’t even know if abuela is going to be ok if or when she wakes up. Everyone is praying. Rafael on the other hand was having a good day. He got Petra/Natalia to sign the divorce papers (finally) and he’s managing the hotel during his dad’s absence even though it is in the middle of a tropical storm. Jane though isn’t having the best time, her grandmother is in the hospital, she is stuck at the hotel and her besties have basically turned their back on her. Since her dad is rich and so is her baby daddy I guess her friends don’t see her as one of them.

Is Rafael’s father sin rostro? I knew that Rafael was definitely not sin rostro, but never thought that his father might be the one Jane’s ex has been looking all over for. Michael’s police work may have gotten him sin rostro hideout under a tub in the bathroom. Well if the definition of police work is about to bang your partner in the hotel bathroom. Those two sure love mixing business with pleasure.

While laying in the hospital unconscious not knowing if she is going to be ok or not, abuela is about to be deported. I love that this show touches on immigration reform. Basically the doctor was like we’ve contacted ICE and they will pick her up and deport her back to Guatemala where she will continue to receive care. So heartless, they won’t even care for her until she gets better and then ship her back. They were going to ship her back just like that! how awful. Poor abuela.

While Michael and Jane are stuck in an elevator she hears the news over the radio that abuela might get deported. I haven’t liked Michael since he was conspiring with Petra/Natalia to get rid of the baby or give it to her and Rafael. Of course now that Rafael and Jane are together Michael has made it his entire job to prove that Rafael is sin rostro. At least being stuck on an elevator gets him out of Rafael’s face.

You know what though? Michael gets some cool points. One, for knowing all of Jane’s stories…the whole thing with the Rosary and abuela was super cute. Also, the fact that he pulled strings to make sure abuela didn’t get deported was nice. Rafael didn’t even know all that was going on! So he’s winning me back a bit. Just a bit. Because if you’re pining away for someone and waiting for her to possibly return you wouldn’t be banging your partner during police investigations. Just saying.

What did you think of this past week’s episode?

I went to see Kevin Hart do stand up last night when he was in town—which was hilarious might I add—and I was wondering what to wear. I ended up casual because it’s cold as hell outside…

2015-01-08 12.58.14

And decided on jeans boots and a cute sweater. Because…cold. My birthday boots ( I call them this because I got them for my birthday a few years back) haven’t been worn in a while and they were in my closet just begging for the chance. I almost regretted it. In the short walk across the street in the cold along with the icy ground I was walking on I definitely second guessed my choice of shoes. But once I got in my seat at the Auditorium and realized that I would be fine with these platforms. I swear my feet may just be giving up on platforms. I used to wear these for work! A full 8 hours! I sat at a desk but still.

Either way Kevin Hart’s skinnies were skinnier than mine so that took my mind of my uncomfortable shoes. How can guys wear skinnies that are THAT skinny?! Anyone? I understand the slim look but whoa. If I was able to take a picture at that event I would have but he was all “no pictures please or you will be removed from the premises.” And I can’t blame him because it looked like someone shrunk those jeans. Or he packed his son’s jeans instead of his own by mistake when he went on tour. I digress.

Brown Platform Boots

Check out my birthday boots. I love them because you can wear them with pretty much anything. What would you wear these boots with the fur with? You really can’t go wrong with brown platform boots in winter, as long as you can walk in the snow!

It is so cold in my neck of the woods. It’s so cold my car doesn’t even want to turn on with the remote starter. It’s enough to want to stay in your warm jammies in your warm house with your warm fuzzy socks. If you are anything like me, you still have to get up, warm up the car and go to work.

This cold weather can make anyone feel less than fashionable. In the winter, it’s hard to keep up your fashion game in the cold climates because what most people end up seeing is your coat. But your coat can be one of the most fashionable things in your closet! And why not since you wear it every day? Check out these five fashionable coats I’ve found for less than $50!

5 Fashionable Coats

The first coat reminds me of the coat the girl from Glee wore in cobalt blue, one of my fave colors. This is such a girly coat with the full skirt and can dress up any outfit!

Next to it, the belted coat can really cinch in your waist and show off your frame. You may need a good blanket scarf or something to cover the open chest but this can take you from spring to fall and winter with a scarf depending on where in the country you live.

In the middle there is a fun cape like coat. adding your own belt to this one to keep it closed would be fun. I’d love to wear this as a cardigan ( I wonder how heavy this one is) as I’m frozen solid right now. I get it, I live in a place where it gets cold but below zero temperature is straight disrespectful.

Below that is a great black belted cape that reminds me a lot of what Kerri Washington would wear in Scandal. A nice long pair of gloves that go up to your elbow would really compliment this coat. Lastly, that fun hounds tooth coat is great and you can hide your pretty little face in the high neck line when you’re running to and from work.

And all for less than $50! A way to keep fashionably warm this cold harsh winter! Which is your fave?

Pinterest be lying to me making me feel I have all the time and energy (and skill) to recreate something from my 44 curated boards. Seriously I don’t know why I keep lying to myself but hey I do get inspired once in a while to make something and this time was no different. Keep in mind though that I wanted to make this DIY phone case as Christmas gifts (yea I know) and that didn’t happen. Also I was all “I’m going to DIY all my Christmas gifts!) all triumphantly and then ended up going to Alex and Ani. Because I am lacking the skill set and let’s be honest I’m going to spend twice as much trying to create this masterpiece that I know I’m not going to be able to create. In short, this is a super easy DIY.

diy phone case-materials

Materials Needed

  • clear phone case: I got them for under $1 at Amazon. Yup I bought like five thinking I was going to be all crafty with these.
  • Glitter leftover from other projects- This Sulyn Holographic Glitter Sample Pack is perfect for a small project like this and you get so many colors for an amazing price with Prime!
  • Mod Podge left over from other projects and there’s a Mod Podge Starter Pack available if you don’t have any on hand. I used the glitter one but either one would be great depending on the finish you are looking for!
  • My favorite fashion magazines
  • A blank sheet of paper
  • Pencil
  • Clear Acrylic spray that can be used as a glitter sealer (not pictured) but I used Plaid Mod Podge Matte Clear Acrylic Sealer mostly because my mod podge used was glitter and then I had glitter on top of that…thought it would be glitter overload!
  • sponge brush
  • Scissors

So first I traced my clear phone case on the blank piece of paper with the pencil. I used this as a template to make my design before transferring it to the case. I then used the scissors to cut up the pieces in the  fashion magazine that I would love to see on my phone. This was for the one phone case. The other phone case was layers of black and teal glitter. I then used the pieces to fit in the template I made. Once I felt I had it just right I used a layer of mod podge on the clear case and applied the cut paper on to the case. Then I applied another layer of mod podge over that and let it sit a bit. After a few hours I came back to the project (as it was sitting on my dining room table and I had to clean it up sooner than later) I applied a thin layer of glitter. If anything I should have applied the thin layer of glitter FIRST before applying the fashion cut outs. Lesson learned for the next one. Then I sealed everything with the acrylic sealer and let it sit overnight. In the am I had a cute (two cute) phone cases that I can use!

Here’s my fashion forward one…

diy phone case-finishedSee what I mean about putting the glitter underneath next time?

And here’s the glitter one!

DIY phone case-glitterI just started with a layer of mod podge and then mixed the two glitter colors I had together to make this. Kind of an ombre. I like it!

What do you think? Who’s trying this one?

Last night was this year’s Golden Globes and the stars were definitely shining! Here are a few of my faves:

JLO Golden Globes 2015

JLO as always….just slayed. She took no prisoners in this dress. The absolute epitome of glam. I love it, the cape like sleeve that turns into a train, the up to there slit and the low cut v neck. She’s always stunning. This is just the start of award show season can’t wait to see what she comes up with for the next show!

Gina Rodriguez Golden Globes 2015

Gina Rodriguez, from my absolute favorite show Jane the Virgin, looked great as well. She played it a bit safe with a black dress but the fit was perfect and I can’t wait to see what other fashion choices she comes up with. It seems she knows what works for her and loved the makeup and the hair as well. I wish I could have seen the shoes! The hair was perfect!

Jennifer Aniston Golden Globes 2015

Jennifer Aniston’s dress was great with the slit, I just wished she would have left her hair down with this dress and maybe did a bit more with her shoes. She looked a bit too plain, but she’s a classic.

Aduba Golden Globes 2015

Another one who slayed without even trying. Uzu Aduba is just beautiful the makeup, the hair the dress. I can’t believe this is crazy eyes ya’ll!

Laura Prepon 2015 Golden Globes

Laura Prepon, and her dark hair to match the black dress is stunning. Her makeup is also flawless. I love the feather like texture that mixes up her otherwise classic cut dress. This is just gorgeous! I’m sure these OITNB ladies are over wearing those prison uniforms because they seem to be going all out in a great way!

Danielle Brooks Golden Globes 2015 Danielle also looks great! The body hugging dress is a great fit on her and emphasizes her waist. Her hair and makeup also looks great, that berry lip on her is beautiful! And compliments the dress very well! Those OITNB ladies really know how to bring it out on the red carpet!

viola davis golden globes 2015

Viola Davis is definitely getting away with murder. She is killing them on the red carpet. The deep red looks great against her skin tone and is a great breath of fresh air from all the black everyone wore tonight. Her hair and makeup is also on point, that berry red looks great with her skin and doesn’t clash with her dress. That’s a hard to accomplish! Red lip with a red dress? Viola did it, and did it well!!

These were just some of my favorite looks from Golden Globes last night. Which were your favorite?

We all know how much I love makeup…this is where my blog started from: my love of shoes and lip gloss. Which has now developed into matte lipstick (what…I don’t even know who I am anymore). There’s lots of extreme makeup transformations out there and we would all like to dabble in a bit of contouring and highlighting (just me? I dabble!) but some people have gone to serious extremes and the internets are telling their entire story. Yes I know there are some celebrities out there that are like whoa without makeup on and loads of Photoshop…and not in a good way. But there are seriously some people who wouldn’t be identifiable if they took their makeup off.

extreme makeup

So to these folks I ask how? And why? And how much? As in how much makeup does it take to completely change your face? People, every day makeup and special FX makeup are two different things and I feel like some people are toeing that line. It ain’t even a fine line folks! I mean I don’t think it is I think they are two very different makeup techniques don’t you?

So I go on the internets and I find lots of examples. There are some serious before and after pictures all over Pinterest and Instagram. It’s so hard for me to believe that pictures are of actual people. I’m speechless. We’ve all seen this contouring tutorial right? This one is subtle compared to others.

subtle contour| extreme makeup

Guys please stop! God forbid something happened to you how is your mama going to be able to identify the body if you look nothing like your all made up photo? Also, how you going to find a good guy when you lying to him about what you look like? Leaving makeup on the clean pillow cases because you don’t want him to see you without it? Missing out on events because it takes you forever to get ready. You all like…

extreme makeup

But I got to make my eyebrows and eyeliner match! No puedo…I just can’t. This is not how we should live life. I love makeup and I have a collection to prove it but let’s limit our every day makeup to 5 minutes. I challenge you to 10 minutes tops! If you can’t put a full face on in ten minutes you need to get your life together. What do you say ladies?

how to get organized

Being organized is not something we inherit from Mami y Papi. It’s something you have to really work at to get right. Don’t confuse it with something like dieting where you hate to stay away from that arroz con pollo. Getting it together is completely the opposite. You get so excited with your progress and realize you haven’t pulled your hair out in days and you get used to the new routine.

It’s all about routine. Please realize that it takes about three weeks for something to actually be a habit. That said you can play around with your own organization tricks until you find the perfect one for you.

The first thing you need to ask yourself is “Paper or electric?” (Instead of paper or plastic!) This means should you get a day planner from your local book store or should you use an online source to get your thoughts together? There’s so many different ways to remind yourself of things and also to keep it all together that I’m sure there is something out there that just screams you!

You don’t have to pick just one thing either. You can cheat and do a little bit of both. For example, I have a day planner that I use *just* for my bills. That’s all that goes in there. I write out the due dates for each bill in the planner and arrange them in there by due date. As a busy Mami, if I don’t see it in front of me it won’t get done. And I absolutely hate late fees, it’s  literally like giving money away. I know I can’t afford that!

For scheduling that comes up, such as appointments and get together’s, I use the calendar on my iPhone. I heart my phone!! I don’t know what I would do without it. It’s not that hard to use the calendar and you can set it to remind you whenever you’d like it to. I also use the Evernote app to jot down quick ideas or screenshot of things that I want to blog about. Keeps everything easily accessible!

If you are a techie Mami there are some great things online to help you get it together. Some are even free! In order to be able to multi-tasking I needed to get a daily chore list going. This way I remember the daily clean up things that I have to do around the house which don’t take much more than an hour. I actually typed up this list and have chores listed under days of the week. I took that list and put it on my refrigerator door for easy reference. This list tells me when to clean out my magazines, what room to clean when. It’s my master to do list. I’ve tweaked it over time to make it work seamlessly. Otherwise I wouldn’t have time to blog! Mija it’s all about baby steps! You won’t be clutter free and organized overnight.

How are you planning to stay organized in the new year?

Fitness, Gym, New Year's Resolution

“Losing Weight” -it’s the most popular New Year’s resolution, but it’s also the hardest one to keep. Once the holiday celebrations are over, the biggest challenge for most of us is to not only get back onto our beauty and fitness routines, but to achieve our New Year’s resolutions at the same time.
Here are 5 simple tips to get you going!

1. Be graphic:

Imagine a line graph documenting every pound you’ve lost -it’s only a matter of time until you see the downward trend your weight loss has made on the graph. If you can imagine that downward trend you’ve made, it can be really motivating! Each pound takes you one step closer towards your goal. Remember that taking one small step is better than taking nothing at all. Track your progress as well as recognize your small achievements too… and keep going!

2.  There’s strength in numbers:

If your friends share the same goals as you, why not get together to help each other? The more buddies you team up with, the easier it will be for you to stay on track. For instance, instead of ordering that bowl of pasta, make a pact with your friend to both order the salad together… or at least share that bowl of pasta! Staying connected to like-minded friends could be the key to your success.

3. Knowledge is power:

Do Your Research! Not only will reading up about weight loss educate you on what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong, it will help keep your resolution top of mind. Surround yourself with information to help you achieve your goals. You may even discover that nugget of information that really resonates with you so you don’t jump off the bandwagon!

4. Fake it till you make it!

Changing your diet and fitness habits is only one part of how to achieve your goal. The other part is to visualize yourself actually achieving your goal. Once you can see yourself as the person you want to be, it will keep you in the mindset of where you are going to be.

5. If at first you don’t succeed, then try again!

Don’t give up just because you ate that slice of pecan pie! Understand that there will be setbacks and many temptations but anytime you lose focus or will-power, take a good hard look at whatever motivates you to keep pushing harder! It can really help you with your fitness goals for this year! Stay bella!

New Month’s Resolutions: January http://mamistimeout.com/2015/01/02/new-months-resolutions-january/ http://mamistimeout.com/2015/01/02/new-months-resolutions-january/#comments Fri, 02 Jan 2015 13:30:00 +0000 http://mamistimeout.com/?p=10411 It’s the New Year guys and that means resolutions all over the place!

It’s the New Year guys and that means resolutions all over the place! I’ve been overwhelmed with trying to get resolutions for the entire year and I was in other years inspired by Elisa at Globetrotting in Heels and her New Month Resolutions. Basically you choose things to work on all month and make it more bite sized, instead of tackling the whole year at once. Guys she turned this into a linky! So of course I jumped at the chance to participate. So this month is the big month new year and all so I will be focusing on:

New Month Resolution

Finances. I need to make my money work for me more. I have started budgeting with an app (of course with my love of apps) and it has made a huge difference in how we spend money but I want to take that to the next level with starting a savings and also starting to invest in stocks. I don’t want to work forever. This is of course on top of my and hubby’s 401k accounts through work. Plus I want to be able to take our first vacation this year as a family of four. Nothing crazy, a weekend trip to the Jersey Shore would suffice. I loved when we went last time!

Also meal planning. Gah I even hate the sounds of the words meal planning. With a passion. But I also hate having to figure out what these little monsters that call me mom are going to eat on a daily basis and it goes back to finances. It helps save money in groceries and also eating out. So this month I would like to reduce eating out by 40% ( Hush 50% sounds like a lot baby steps people) and meal plan at least for half the month. So I can do a week on and a week off. I know meal planning works. But damn I sure do hate it. I don’t mind finances though it’s like putting a puzzle piece together. But the meals? That’s something I got to work on.

Blogging. Believe it or not I’m going into my seventh year of blogging. I know right! Some people can’t believe that my blog “is so small” after being online for seven years but honestly I don’t need to be Instafamous or anything like that. My community may be small but I love each and every one of you. Quality over quantity that’s what I say. I don’t need to buy followers to impress anyone thank you very much! But this year I want to focus on definitely writing more quality posts, less quantity again. I think that’s going to be my theme for blogging these year. There are so many admin things I’ve avoided throughout this blogging journey and I’m ready to dig in. To be honest I had a whole post written weeks ago about how I don’t see this being worth it and blah blah that I never posted. But seriously, my fingers need to type, my brain needs to get some of these words down. If I wasn’t blogging than I would be blogging anyway. Know what I mean? So yea definitely making this year my best year yet!

This year to me seems different than most. For the first time ever, I can tell you that I feel blissfully and utterly content. I’ve been feeling this way for weeks now: an overwhelming joy of the things I have accomplished, the beautiful kids that God has placed in my heart and home and the amazing hubby that I would be lost without. I am the epitome of “hashtag blessed”. I’m beyond thankful to go into this New Year with my heart so full of love and appreciation that I just know 2015 is going to be an amazing year! Totally sappy but there’s my heart for you! Full of joy and I wish the same for you and your family in 2015!

In between finding you love on these harsh internets with Passion Latinos, Walter Mercado has given us his recommendations on the rituals we need to do for an amazing 2015 broken down by astrological sign. If you don’t know who Walter Mercado is, chances are you were not raised in a Latino household but that’s fine I can catch you up. You definitely don’t want to miss this, at it is true entertainment. Let it be known that Walter’s astrology was aired during an otherwise serious newscast every single day. And you knew better not to disturb your mami or tia/auntie when this came on as they treasured it like their child’s very life.

So my recommendation is…

Como tú eres un signo de fuego necesitas encender velas en tu casa con sumo cuidado y precaución. Enciende velas  azules o rojas. Los rojos dedícaselos a Santa Bárbara o a San Miguel Arcángel. Nada más sagrado y de más suerte que la limpieza espiritual de fin de año. Sobre tu mesa de comedor no puede faltar una cesta de frutas en nombre de la Madre Cósmica, al lado de esta cesta vas a colocar también una fuente de cristal con agua, le echas pétalos de rosas rojas y tres velas flotantes que encenderás a las 12 de la medianoche por la paz mundial, por tu salud y las de tus seres queridos y por la prosperidad. Recuerda que toda ofrenda se carga de energía positiva. Para la celebración de fin de año, vístete de color azul y lleva contigo una turquesa, tu piedra de buena suerte.

Tu baño espiritual para la buena suerte, debe llevar hojas de guayabo, “rompe saragüey”, salvia, albahaca, menta, curía y todas las plantas medicinales y sagradas que puedas conseguir. Con algunas de las plantas que te sobren déjalas secar y prepara un incienso o sahumerio agregándole pétalos de flores, mirra, frankincense, estoraque y así purificas todo tu hogar a la vez que vas orando para que todas las energías negativas del año 2014 desaparezcan.

This is truly pure gold. So basically since I am a fire sign (Sagittarius) I should light blue or red candles in my home as a precaution. I have to dedicate my red ones to St. Barbara or St. Miguel. I also should have a bowl of fruit on my dining room table as tribute for the Cosmic Mother along with a crystal water fountain which I have to pour pink rose petals and three floating candles. (didn’t I tell you this was pure entertainment!?) Also I can’t light the floating candles until midnight for world peace, for my family’s and my health and for prosperity. Walter’s telling me I need to wear blue for New Year’s Eve festivities along with a turquoise for good luck.

Also his recommendation for my spiritual bath include leaves from a guava tree (I’m saying where in the world am I going to find this in Western NY???) “rompe saraguey”…que what? Seems like I’m screwed with this New Year cleansing since I have no clue what that means and can’t add it to my water. Well there’s also mints and stuff that I can add to this cleansing bath along with any holy medicines that I can find. Apparently I also have to learn to make incense with the left overs from this guava tree leaf so I can burn it along with some other things in order to purify my home. While doing this I have to pray so the negative energies leave my house in 2014. I’m saying…how can I watch the ball drop if I’m busy doing all of this? Because it doesn’t sound like it’s going to take me a few minutes. And I tend to have no follow through. This is something I hope to work on in 2015.

Is this why I’m still not rich and famous? Because if Walter says so then it must be for real. At least he’s still wishing me love…
