Hi fashionistas,

I attended an Art Basel even this year as well and it was another memorable experience. This year unlike last year (more info here) I did make it to the Art Basel exhibit itself. It was quite an entertaining experience because there is quite a lot to take in while there. Honestly the video above alone does not do it justice because I could not fit in ALL of my favorites in it, that's why I posted a pictorial tour on my Instagram here. 

Nevertheless, what you all see here is only about a 20% of the exhibit itself because it was a huge event and it was impossible to capture it all on film. Plus, while I was there I stopped quite a bit to enjoy and admire the art pieces up close and as you can imagine when you're so into something you even forget to bring out the camera to capture it.

I hope you all enjoy this brief tour of Art Basel Miami 2017! I definitely recommend you guys see it for yourselves if you ever get the chance to.

Dear Fashionistas,

It has been 8 years since I started sharing my life with you all through my blog. I confess it wasn't easy at first. And even though I considered the looks I shared with you stylish, looking back some of them were actually a hot mess! But fortunately that is the beauty of the growth of one's style. Today, I'm definitely more in touch with it and can depict it better through my outfits. 

A few weeks ago I realized I never really shared much about me as a person either through here or my youtube channel. And I understood that it was necessary that I share more about me through a more personal video like this.

I recorded/edited the 50 facts about me tag in hopes of bringing that togetherness between us. For all these years that you have all stuck around to see me grow I thank you all. Your comments, blogs and videos have served as inspiration and motivation for my personal growth. And without you I definitely would not have made it this far.

This is me and I hope you can get to know me better through it:

And please share something unique about yourself in the comments below as well.

Hi fashionistas!
How is your weekend going? Hoping that you're relaxed and enjoying it to the fullest. Today's post is about the hacks I use most of the time when it comes to styling some of my clothes and my natural hair. Fashion and beauty is all about working with what you've got! And the hacks I'm about to share can help you complete some of those quick looks that we often run into.

Lately, I have been obsessed with makeup. As a result, you've probably noticed that my blog has been taken over by quite a few beauty videos in the last few weeks. This all began after I started to actually teach myself to do my own makeup by watching youtube videos. Currently, I'm by no means an expert or wear makeup on a daily basis but I can proudly say I've gotten better. This is why I began to record these videos to teach others, who might be going through the struggles I went through, that you can learn to do your own makeup. And to teach them that with practice applying makeup does becomes easier!

But if you're one of the fashionistas that likes my fashion videos better, do not worry those will be making a come back soon as well. Stay tuned for my Summer 2017 Lookbook. Yes, you read that right. I'm in the process of finishing recording a lookbook! I think we both agree the release of one lookbook by me has been long overdue.

Which nude lippie was your favorite?

Also what fashion trends are you looking forward to seeing on my upcoming lookbook?

For years I've been dying to try a cushion foundation because Korean Dramas - more specifically Miss Korea - got me super interested in them. In South Korea it is all about having great skincare and looking as natural as possible when wearing makeup. As a result cushion foundations became very popular because they are light and provide enough coverage to achieve a natural look.

Summer officially arrived in South Florida awakening the beach vibes inside of my soul. To welcome the season we ventured to Naples Beach all the way on the west coast. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw a few glimpses of this trip already. Nothing was planned beforehand but something told me we should head on this road trip over Memorial Day weekend no matter what.

About three months ago I was invited to a yacht party and had the opportunity to record some of the interior of the yacht for you guys. It was quite a surreal experience. The yacht was beautiful and spacious for its size so it left quite an impression on me. After the whole event I definitely left thinking that one day in the near future I want to be able take a vacation on a yacht of my own.

Let me know your thoughts below on this whole experience. Would you live on a yacht if you could?

In today's vlog you get to explore the Miami Youth Fair with us. The Fair, as most south Florida natives call it, is a yearly attraction to the majority of south Florida residents. It brings us the rides, the food venues and the entertainment that one would find further north at amusement parks such as Disney World and Universal Studios but at a fraction of the price and on a smaller scale. This park is a big hit with south Florida residents and crowds often flock all the way from Ft. Lauderdale or Homestead just to attend it.

Do you have a similar Fair in your city every year? Is it similar to ours? Let me know in the comments below.

P.s: I hope you had a blessed Easter if you celebrate it. God bless you all and thank you for reading my post.

At times it can be a bit hard to stay motivated and focused on our dreams. We might feel hopeless or as if there's nothing else we can do to achieve our goals. It is then than you should surround yourself with positivity more than ever. During those days I like to surround myself with positive affirmations, good vibes and great company.

Yesterday I went ahead and got a facial for the first time. With all the hype going on in fashion magazines and youtube channels such as Buzzfeed I grew intrigued and wondered about the wonders of getting a facial myself. I've always been a fan of massages itself so I figured I would love a facial just as much. Also the main thing that motivated me to get one was the state of my skin lately.

Sometimes changes are necessary to allow a better and stronger you to surface. In this video I share the ideas that helped me settle and start anew in two different countries over the course of my life. 

Moving abroad expanded my horizons and taught me to be a stronger person.

If you ever have the opportunity to live in a new country plan as much as you can and go forward with it. 

I hope these tips can help you and that you remember that you're not alone because many others before you also needed a little extra hand before moving forward.

I hope you remain positive and very optimistic about your future. And remember your dreams can come true but they require planning and lots of hard work on your part in order to attain them. Allow the universe to listen to your thoughts on the future by visually presenting your dreams to it. Your mind is a powerful instrument and it can make those dreams of yours a reality.

Dream on dear fashionistas! I love you and truly hope this video inspires you to do yourself better.

Hi fashionistas,

Today I'm sharing with you all my progress for these past 4 years of being natural. Can you believe it has been that long already? I, myself, cannot! I had forgotten to even track my progress to be honest. I noticed I had come a long way just the other day when I decided to do a twist out for a change. To my surprise as I did my twists in front of the mirror this time I noticed that my hair was way past my nose bridge. It felt surreal and I quickly went back to my old videos for a quick comparison and was shocked to see my hair had really grown quite a bit.

To update you all just like old times I decided to get dolled up and record my length check video for you all. Let me know your thoughts on my progress below. Also please do share how are you doing in your own hair journey?

Love you all!

Sheyla ♥
