Do we have any #thecrown fans here?  I’ve been binge watching with @gabrielburrafato for the past couple weeks and we just finished with Season 4 episode 5.  I didn’t think I would like this show but I became obsessed after watching the  first 2 episodes in Season 1.  I’ve learned all sorts of history not only about the royal family but also life and politics in the U.K. during that time period.  If you haven’t seen this show it is highly recommended.

I hope you are as excited as I am for a 4-day week.  It’s back to the grind for me after celebrating Memorial Day.  I was able to get lots of rest in bed, which allowed me to recover completely.  We stayed home and tackled our backyard.  I was able to tackle the area by planting herbs and rerouting the vines while @gabrielburrafato and the boys finished building the BBQ grill. The grill turned out better than expected - it’s truly a labor of love and I’m so proud of them.  The last step is to install a stone countertop - still shopping around for a good stone that can withstand salt water mists, humidity and the sun.  There’s still more work to be done but we have been enjoying it even though it’s not 100% ready.  #AllAtJCP @jcpenney #notsponsored

Summer is calling…

Today is the last day of April and also the last day of celebrating Earth.  But, as I mentioned on my previous post we should celebrate Earth every single day by reducing, repurposing, reusing, and recycling.  That’s why I’m so thrilled that a California-based brand,@michaelstarsinc, is helping to restore our eco-system by donating to an organization that plants sea trees off the coast of California, a place we call home. #TeesforSeaTrees

I was in the process of cleaning my closet (yes, I’m late to the party) and putting my so-called winter wardrobe away to make room for spring but then the temperature decided to dip to the 60s this morning.  It looks like we will be getting the same weather for the next couple of weeks.  For now, I’m enjoying more coffee in front of the fireplace and just chill.  Do you clean out your closet every season?

I NEED your help!

I’ve been shopping for an #accentchair for this corner for the past few weeks and I’m torn.  It’s for a corner that is perfect for reading and relaxing.  One of our patio chairs sits here in the meantime.  My eyes and budget tells me to get chair #4 but practicality tells me to get chair #1 (still waiting for that sample swatch), which is twice the amount.  I came to the realization that you CANNOT have nice things in the house when you have kids no matter how well they behave.  So, I’m looking for a long lasting (at least 5 years) chair that is stain resistant,  comfortable and fit with our current home aesthetics.  Which one would you get?  Or, do you have a better alternative  that you would recommend? TIA

I can’t believe this winter came and went, which means it’s time to get my #springwardrobe sorted.  This spring will mark one year since the shutdown yet we are at a home stretch. So grateful to all the frontline and essential workers who risked their lives to save us and to make it through.  Although the numbers are trending down it is not the time to relax prevention measures. So let’s all hang in there and wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart and avoid crowds.

Do you like dark humor comedy? I’m currently binging @amazonprime Flack episodes.  It’s kind of like Scandal but for celebrities but hyperbolical with a dark sense of humor.  Season 2 is in the making so you still have time to watch all the episodes that are currently available on Amazon Prime.  And great news, my parents are getting their COVID vaccine next week and I do not have to report to Jury Duty today.

I’ve been meaning to share this with you…
I recently discovered @glowrecipe at #SephoraInJCP.  Their natural, fruit-powered skincare essentials are clean,  cruelty-free and free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.   I love their Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner so much because it leaves my skin so dewy and hydrated that I just placed an order for their Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops and can’t wait to share  my review with you.
I’m also a big fan of @laneiege_us and absolutely love their Lip Sleeping Mask so I decided to try their makeup primer, Glowy Makeup Serum.  Sometimes I just wear this without my makeup and love that inner glow it gives to my skin.  #glowrecipe  #glowwithlaneige

Do you give gifts to your neighbors during the holidays ? I received my first-holiday gift from my neighbor on Christmas Eve and it was the most awkward moment for me.  I was not prepared at all and made a last-minute dash to Vons to pick up a gift to give back. Although it's appreciated that you give a gift back but it is not expected.
Regardless, ever since then I made a conscious effort to gift my neighbors during the holidays because we want to express to them that we care about them, that they're important to us, and most of all that we appreciate what they do for us while we're away. 

@loccitaneusa is one of the brands that I reach for because their gift sets are beautiful and the products are amazing. And I always get something for myself, like their Shea Butter Body Cream or the Advent Calendars - I love daily surprises!!!  #gifted #loccitane You can shop my favorite L’Occitane gift items  here ==> #liketkit 
You can also head over to my blog for more thoughtful gift items that you can give to your neighbors.  Again most of these items are from small business brands.  Link in bio.  #giftguide2020 #LTKgiftspo #LTKunder50 #LTKhome

Another cheerful and hopeful post for you to end the week!  Some of you have been asking about this dress and wanted to see how it looks and feels.  I’m petite and I didn’t have to hem this dress - it fits me like a glove.  This Pleat Sleeve Dress is from the @whowhatwearxtarget spring collection but I think it’s perfect for summer.  The materials are made of linen and rayon.  I’m not a big fan of rayon but I LOVE linen, especially for summer.  This dress is currently on sale for less than $33.  I loved it so much that I bought another pattern and color - can’t wait to share it with you very soon. #mywhowhatwear

One of my favorite looks for #memorialdayweekend - a light and airy cotton dress that feels comfortable yet still pulled  together.

I love getting dressed in an uncluttered area because a clear place brings a calm mind.  I feel that clutter can zap and knock down your energy not to mention your self-esteem because it’s a constant reminder of what you haven’t done.  If you ignore clutter, it can cause mental fatigue. So I do my best to declutter any area as much as I can.  At the same time I’m working on not to stress myself out too much if the areas are messy.  Afterall, a messy place is a well lived place.

My floral dress and sandals are currently on sale - all under $40. Get the shopping deets here⇒ #liketkit #LTKunder50 #LTKshoecrush #LTKsalealert
Something to smile about!  Positivity rates for COVID19 are decreasing and hospitalizations are trending downward for California.

Our  state has administered more than 16 million #COVID19 vaccines and starting April 1, individuals 50+ will be eligible for the vaccines and individuals 16+ starting April 15.  We are inching closer and closer to the light at the end of the tunnel. Until it is your turn to get vaccinated please remember to protect yourself and everyone around you by wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart, washing your hands, and avoiding the crowd to #Endthepandemic.  #trustsciene #wecandothis

I change the decor in all my vases every season. Tree branches are a cost effective way to liven up and accentuate your home.  Our current home has no trees so I clipped these cherry blossom branches from my parents’ backyard fruit tree when I went to see them over the weekend.  These branches should last for up to two weeks and are such a simple, yet beautiful way to herald in a new season with all of the splendor of nature.  If you don’t have branches in your garden, don’t hesitate to use quality faux branches.  They are just as beautiful and actually have a much longer life span.

Both Bella and I badly needed a haircut.  My last haircut was 6 months ago and I can’t decide if I should go short , curtain bangs, and LOB again or just let it grow.  I’m seeing my hairstylist in a couple weeks and I’m still pondering with the decision.  #vainpeopleproblem

So our #lockdown restrictions have been lifted.  

I guess the numbers are stabilizing or trending down? Let’s hope so.   I don’t know anymore.  All I know is we are still staying home and limiting our outings as much as possible.  Even if we want to dine out we can’t.  I  mean who wants to sit outside the restaurant with temperature dipping in  the  50s.  By the way, some parts of LA received hale/snow yesterday. Oh, I managed to put my parents on the vaccination list so now I’m waiting for them to call me for their appointments - fingers crossed! jury duty today but not so sure about tomorrow.

If you only knew what I’m wearing right now  LOL.  But I wanted to share my latest obsession with you - maxi skirts.  They are so elegant and formal looking yet versatile.  But most of all, they make me look a lot taller than my actual height.  
My skirt is a couple seasons old but I have linked a similar style that is more affordable - less than $50.  My #cashmeresweater is currently on sale for less than $50 too.   Shopping deets here ==> #liketkit #LTKunder50 #LTKstyletip #LTKsalealert

If you’re feeling the throes of COVID vaccine FOMO it’s okay.

As more people are getting vaccinated across the country there are some of us who are still eagerly waiting until we are eligible.   You will be able to get the vaccine.  After all, we want to vaccinate as many people as we possibly can so that everyone is protected.  Until then, I want to encourage you to focus on being vigilant - keep washing your hands, wear a mask, stay 6ft apart, and avoid crowds.  You’ve come this far and the finish line is within clear sight - we are soooo close!  Remember, we are all in this together.

Do you know that what you wear can actually change your thought patterns? It tells your own brain what kind of behaviors and traits it needs to possess while wearing that kind of outfit.  You heard it before: dress for the job you want.  So you all pretty much know where I want to go when I’m wearing this @nicandzoe stretch fabric dress where the pattern is the hand painted landscape of an Italian village.  We are waiting patiently until it is safe to travel and Italy is definitely on the top of our list!

Woke up earlier than usual this morning so that I can take my parents to get their COVID vaccine.  It has taken close to a year to get to where we are but I’m hopeful....cases are trending down and businesses are slowly opening up...fingers crossed for the schools to reopen. May the force be with all of us.

How’s your  weekend so far?  Like some of you, the pandemic fatigue is hitting us in an unexpected way.  We’ve been cooped up in our home for almost a year and we are screaming to get out.  To see. To live. To touch. To feel. Again.  While patiently waiting for our turn to get vaccinated we are planning a family road trip to somewhere anywhere.  So, I’m currently knee deep in locating an RV that would be comfortable yet self sustaining for the family plus Bella for the duration of the trip.  Along with that I’m also researching for campgrounds to reserve. far...all the campgrounds in CA are closed until February 1st.  
I’m planning to pack these cute @mgemi Alpi Alta boots with me.  Don’t forget to get a pair for yourself using my special code ‘JANISE’ for $60 off here ==> #liketkit #LTKshoecrush #LTKsalealert #LTKstyletip
How was your Christmas?  Did you do any shopping? Our big annual Christmas Eve dinner with friends and family was downsized to just the four of us.  Although it wasn’t ideal we wouldn’t have it any other way.  It was best for  all of us that we skipped this year’s celebration so that we can have many more after the pandemic is over.

I bought a few items for the house and some shoes and clothes fir the boys because they are growing leaps and bounds.

So many sales are happening still and I’m adding some to my cart, like the investment pieces that I don’t have to pay an arm a d a leg for.

@lovechicos Semi Annual Sale is happening now until 1/14  with items up to 70% off including this cashmere blend cheetah sweater.  Shopping deets here ⇒ #liketkit #StayHomeWithLTK #LTKsalealert #LTKunder50
