Summer Glow | 3 Products That Will Revive Your Inner Goddess

SummerGlow_LogoDiasehsThere’s nothing that I love more than a sexy summer glow, and while summer isn’t here just yet…It definitely feels like it! I have a body bronzing dry oil that I absolutely love, but I found out recently that they stopped making it! After that, I decided to bring out some old favorites and explore some new options too. Let’s start with the one I used yesterday!

My all time favorite is the Monoi Body Glow I from NARS Cosmetics. If I could put this in every body product I own, I probably would! Let me give you a brief rundown on what Monoi oil is. This oil is made by soaking a Tahitian gardenia called the Tiare flower in coconut oil. It moisturizes the skin, acts as an anti-aging agent and reduces inflammation.


PRICE | $59.00 USD at Sephora

FACT: I mentioned the Monoi Body Glow II in a previous post. If you would love to try this lovely oil without the added shimmer, look no further!

Next! I stumbled upon these two products via Instagram, and they are the Copacabana Bronze Glow Oil and Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil from Sol de Janeiro. Mama! Baby! Mujer! Honey…let me tell you something. Are you listening? No matter where your melanin falls on the color spectrum, you will love this product! Ipanema Sunset works best for lighter skin tones, and Copacabana Bronze works best for mid to deeper skin tones. You can also mix them together for a custom shade!

Copacabana Bronze has golden shimmer with a sweet pistachio and salted caramel scent. Ipanema Sunset has a champagne shimmer and a sweet yet natural scent. This consists of pomelo, wild fig and gardenia.

PRICE | $35.00 USD at Sephora

DISCLAIMER: Copacabana Bronze does have a little bit of color payoff, but it is NOT a darkening, self-tanner.

When I first came across this product, I must admit that I was a bit skeptical. Reason? I couldn’t see the product in the bottle! I’m a visual person, you know? I did not let that stop me, and neither should you! This product is literally gold in a bottle. Never heard of BaliBody? They are a vegan friendly, Australian company that knows how to make you inner goddess sing! May I introduce to you their Shimmering Body Oil. This product contains: coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, soybean oil, grape seed oil, vitamin E, fragrance and a lot of shimmer. Can you say beach babe?



Bonus: This oil is lightweight and fast drying! Apply and wait 5 min, then you are good to go!

June | When Consistency is Key


¡Feliz Junio Mis Reinas! This is my month! Have you ever started off the month with a bang, and you just know that THIS month is going to be a prosperous, uplifting and enlightening 30 days? Let me tell you what led to all of these positive feelings…

Work was giving me all types of hell. When I say that, I do not mean work related to blogging but 9 to 5 work. In my case, 9:00 a.m. to midnight. Sunrise beyond sunset work. Three words will explain the entire situation…Private Venue Management.

Ding! That’s it! What did I gain from this you ask?

Fewer headaches, a work schedule that makes sense, a new office and the opportunity to actually see the outside world on the weekend. I AM IN HEAVEN! As the month came to a close, there was one last event that made everything so much… sweeter.

Maluma…Juan Luis Londoño Arias…Pretty Boy…Dirty Boy…I had been waiting for this concert for so long! Amway Center in Orlando was packed, but it was so worth it. Check that one off of the list! Head over to my Instagram for concert videos.


For June, I want to focus on one thing. This one works magic in many areas of my life.


I would like to have more consistency in the following areas of my life: Content creation, travel and saying “yes”. If you know anyone who coordinates events, creates content or does any type of marketing for a living…You know why this is a thing. Creating content is a constant struggle. Anyone with half an imagination can come up with things to talk about or take pictures of. The real struggle is creating/doing things that are original. Doing your own thing with little to no influence. It takes time, and now that I have this glorious schedule…I will have more time for blogging. AMEN!

Travel will always be on my list. Why? Travel is my way to recoup. It helps me clear my mind, gain inspiration and just be free! It doesn’t matter if I travel within my same state or out of the country. I just need new experiences. I am going to OWN my summer!

When you go through large changes, whether they are related to work or your personal life, you may find yourself being a little overwhelmed at first. Who wouldn’t?! When I would get stressed, the first thing I would tend to do is say no to everything. Back in November, all I could do is say yes, and I left no time for myself. As of lately, I wouldn’t want to do anything extra or change my schedule for fear that it would add more stress or throw me off. This past month, I got out of that crazy cycle, and I intend to keep it that way!

Saying yes, in moderation, is a way to invite new and positive experiences into your life.
