Valentine's Day Gift Ideas For Her

It's inspiration time. Topic,Valentine's Day. (Cue harps playing with little cupids flying around and… go!) No matter if you're shopping for your girlfriend, wife, grandmother or best friend, just sit back and relax. Ain't no body got time for all that pressure. ;)

February is coming quick and it warms my heart to see all the different shades of pink embedded into the decor at all my favorite shops. Personally, I enjoy purchasing items that others wish they had but always put off buying themselves.  This Keurig will bring a clean and fresh look to any kitchen, not to forget to mention it has productive side effects and will keep up with the girl on-the-go. A girl can never have enough jewelry and BaubleBar is one of my favorite sites for quality jewelry (get 15% off your first purchase by signing up for the mailing list). Another one of new-found loves is Rocksbox because you have a personal stylist that sends you pieces that you rent and exchange for as long as you wish or purchase with a 20% discount with your membership. Use the code onthekattwalkxoxo for a limited time and the lucky girl in your life can receive her first month FREE - seriously, perfect for any girl who loves to play dress up. No matter if you're replenishing her favorite Tory Burch perfume, adding to her scarf and purse collection just remember that love is a gift that should be cherished, daily. Never take it for granted. 

Love is in air and I hope it never leaves. <3

SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-IN-1 Renewal System

As you likely know, my love for hair is beyond any shopping addiction out there. I had never tried SheaMoisture until two weeks ago and what started as a trial turned into an obsession with SheaMoisture 10-in-1 Renewal System trial.

Right off the bat, the smell will captivate you. I'm not talking about for only a few hours after you walk out of the house. I'm talking about my second day hair smelling fresh as ever. This may be a silly thing to be excited about but my locks soak up every single scent so to me this was such a pleasant surprise. What does it smell like? Well the Superfruit Complex Collection is made with a blend of red raspberry ketone, goji, acai, and guava extracts, it’s rich in antioxidants and smells like heavenly yummy-ness. :)

Since my hair is so long it does require monthly intensive hair treatments to help keep it healthy on top of my everyday shampoo/conditioning routine and SheaMoisture understands that! This powerful system provides anti-aging benefits, heat and color protection, hydration, nourishment, rejuvenation, shine and so much more! When used together, the four products (a shampoo, conditioner, masque, and hair & scalp serum) help to perfect and renew vibrancy due to dull, lackluster hair. Each product even includes marula oil, which contains natural plant peptides that help support your hair's elasticity and biotin that nourishes each strand for thicker, longer hair. Combining all four products allows your hair to look and feel its best.

Yeah, you better believe I hit the mother-load of all hair products! I am all about convenience and this makes taking care of my hair exciting again. Bring on the spring and summer, baby, because my hair is ready to come down and shine. SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-IN-1 Renewal System is made with certified organic Shea Butter and other natural ingredients, providing a better way to beautiful.

Send me pictures of you with your SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-IN-1 Renewal System and tell me what you think!

Today's post is coming to you from a quaint neighborhood off Melrose Ave in West Hollywood. I kept 'Ooing! and 'Ahing' over it until I gave in, pulled over and did a shoot so you guys could see how cute it really is. :) My friends at Q-Tee sent me the cutest Pop The Champagne shirt in congratulations with my 1-year blogiversary so obviously I couldn't wait to style it! I got this vest at Target on sale for $16 and it gave me the perfect opportunity to add an extra layer in the mix - HOLLA!! :) It's crazy how layering can amp up an outfit and make it stand out from a basic tee and shorts. I am always looking for ways to hook my besties up so I became an Ambassador for Q-Tee and now you can always get 15% off your total purchase using this code (QTA15) at checkout. Have fun & remember fashion is all about being creative so don't be afraid to be daring <3

(I can never go to a shoot on an empty stomach so this is me beforehand-- ready to grub!)

Who is ready for tomorrow's casual Friday? Oh yeah, this girl is!! The South Bay is finally getting a bit breezy which means I get to bring my coat and cashmere scarf combo to life in this 60-degree weather. I am not saying it's freezing by any means, I am just glad I get to finally play dress-up with more winter-like looks without looking like a crazy woman at the beach. :)

The thing about dressing for a casual Friday at work is that you still want to look professional. There are different options to go with when planning and the leading factor depends on your overall work environment. Just keep in mind today's look could be too dressed down for some offices but work perfectly for others. Pairing my favorite Sam Edelman leopard pumps with a large cuffed pair of jeans brings sophistication. Adding an oversized coat, forest green mini leather clutch and statement jewelry draws in the class. An ultra-soft long sleeve baseball sweater completes the look by dressing it down. A comfortable outfit that will make getting up on Friday so much better. Keep working y'all the weekend is almost here!!

Ah! I am finally getting around to sharing my outfit from the Colgate Beauty Bar Pre-Golden Globe event at the Chateau Marmont's Selma House. I figured since this weekend are the SAG Awards that I better hop on it! #BetterLateThanNever ;)

I love affordable shopping and Target has my whole heart. Anyone else just go there to look around and end up with a whole new outfit… or five? Well this happens to me on-the-reg. and this a-line dress was one of my recent buys. If you have never worn an a-line dress it is a must! Coming from a girl who has a lack of a figure, this pattern gives a complimenting illusion that says otherwise. Fun Fact: I have a thing for booties… the shoe, of course! I can't get over the that these gold-trim booties from Target are 50% off right now. They are sexy, sleek and only $15 but no one needs to know that and trust me no one would believe you anyways. :) Have a wonderful day!

Hello girly!
I never thought I would say this but today I am feeling like a girly lumberjack and it ain't half bad. My light-wash, tattered shorts and mad for plaid button down hit Santa Monica for brunch with fellow Latina blogger, Andriana, at Huckleberry this weekend.  It's always so fun when bloggers get together because it's like you're finally around someone who gets everything you do. From taking your camera everywhere you go (because you never know when there will be a fierce photo opportunity) to rearranging plates then standing over your food to get the perfect shot (shown below) hahah! But most importantly it's such a wonderful time hanging out with new and old gal pals. I have some big things coming up with some of my favorite bloggers so be sure to follow along on Instagram and Facebook to stay updated. Which bloggers would you like to see me collab with? Sound off in the comments below and of course have a wonderful day!

P.S. And if you end up stepping out of the house looking like a lumberjack, own it. ;)
