A Day in My Life



Hey, guys! Hope you all are having a great week so far! I can't believe August is almost over and summer will be gone before we know it. Super crazy!

Today, I want to share with you guys how my normal day usually is. It can be crazy and nonstop and other days it's super planned out and organized. Either way, I'm grateful to see another day. As you may or may not know, I run a martial arts school. It’s a huge part of my life that I'm consistently working on.
Yes, so the first thing I do in a day is I wake up to make my bed and then go straight to the bathroom to wash my face. Washing my face is literally the best thing for me to do every morning because I'm so tired or I just don't feel like getting out of bed and once I go to the bathroom and brush my teeth and wash my face I feel so alert. There are times when I'm in bed and I'm like OK I'm gonna go to the bathroom and I'm going to go back to bed once I wash my face. After washing my face, I literally don't end up going back to bed. It's pretty awesome, I guess!

The second thing I get done is reading the Bible verse of the day and I also pray. Then, I have a conference meeting every morning at 9 AM with my martial arts team. So I am up every day at 8:30 AM and immediately jump in and get ready to conquer my day!

Once my conference a phone call is done, I jump right into my paperwork and administration work for the business. The funny thing about this is that this is my favorite part of my business - I enjoy it more compared to everything else I do. I'm sure you're thinking it's weird because the marshland is all about moving being active and nonstop, but I would surprisingly rather just sit on a computer and do administrative work.

After my administration work is complete, it’s already time to have a healthy lunch - at this point, I am typically a couple hours into the work day. During my lunch, I confirm all my appointments that I have for the evening. The evening time is when I have my classes that I teach at the school that I run. This is also my favorite time of the day because it's more down time compared to the next few hours where I will be teaching. I get to organize and re-assess how my day is going and I start looking at how the rest of the evening will go. I also look at how my morning was - I take in consideration how productive I was, what I missed and why I need to do to carry-on for the next morning. I then close my afternoon gap with my fashion blog! I look at emails, look at what brands I need to do posts for, and I work on my Instagram. Currently, I am working on starting to try to post around three or four o’clock everyday or every other day to try and post 3 to 4 times a week. This takes a lot of work!

One hard thing about running a blog and living such an active lifestyle + working is that there is no time to work on my search engine optimization and no time to promote my business online. I am sure a lot of business owners and bloggers run into this because it is so hard to balance everything! This is where SEO Company NJ, NJ SEO can come in and help you out. NJ SEO is a full service New Jersey marketing agency that provides and develops effective content strategies for forward thinking companies.

If you are in a bind like I am and just don’t have time to learn about SEO, consider looking into a professional marketing agency, like NJ SEO.
My final part of the day is going to my school like I said in the beginning and doing classes + teaching my classes. I might have three or four classes each day starting from 5 and going until 9 o'clock at night.  I look forward to this part of the day because I am very social - I am constantly surrounded by people, so you have to be for the job. It is fun, though! I'm a 3rd° black belt and I train Shotokan karate, kickboxing, and Krav Maga, so it really is fun and I always have a great time teaching. I work with kids from the age of three years old to adults of even seventy years old, so it’s a big math loop of different ages that I get to connect with on a daily basis!

Once my day is done at the school, I go home and chill out for a couple hours because I typically have a lot of energy at the end of night - that’s what being so active does to you! When I train, something happens and I am just always so wide awake. Cooling down before bed helps me sleep so that I can get ready for the next morning of go, go, go.

As you can see, my day is pretty packed. Nothing ever goes as planned most of the time because #life, but my hope is that you enjoy this day and I look forward to sharing more on my martial arts journey! I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have any questions, please comment below! Have a wonderful day guys and I can't wait to you I post again!

Pink Romper

Ahhhhh!!! Traveling and vacation are the best! Can anyone agree?!? It was so good to be away and enjoy an adventure in Puerto Rico, such a beautiful place . From the beautiful scenery, the blazing hot sun, the warm water, and of course all of the places I was able to visit . 

It was a 10 day trip filled with history, jet skis, beach days, hiking , and chilling by the pool. 



Today I wanted to share with you guys an outfit I put together on a hot summer day in PR. This amazing pink romper was from Charlotte
Russe. I love the fit, especially since you can adjust it. Which i definitely need, being a tiny lady. It's super comfortable and was the perfect outfit for a day in PR. My favorite part is how the romper is enhanced with the ruffles how the bottom, how cute!



My amazing bomb block heels are from Payless. Yesss Payless, you may think it's overrated but they have some nice shoes there. They were only $30! I'm going back for more! Lol 

So take a look at this outfit and leave a comment below on what you think!

Can never go wrong there. I shop at the one in freehold mall, I believe the opened up another on the east coast . 

Primark is definitely a place to find trending fashion on a low budget. It's a simple and organized store and of course I got many things from there. 

My amazing bomb block heels are from Payless. Yesss Payless, you may think it's overrated but they have some nice shoes there. They were only $30! I'm going back for more! Lol

Virtual Outfit before Purchasing


Have you ever wanted to try on an outfit from the comfort of your home? I mean, an actual outfit where you never purchased before. Well I have good news for you, Styled by Trendage, is an IOS app that lets you virtually try on outfit by yourself.
I literally downloaded this app and couldn't get off my phone. Its so engaging and super fun to try on different outfit. It's super easy, I've  even had my mom download the app, she's hooked. The best part about this app is that instead of looking at an outfit on someone else like a model or a picture online, you just interest a picture of your face and it's complete. A body positivism movement. It feels the same as if you were physically putting an outfit on.
So I hope this helps and you download the app and give it a try. I highly recommend, the app is just like Cher's closet from Clueless, the movie.
Here's the link and let me know!! https://styled.app.link/GZtMbVoH2C

High-Waist Shorts




 Hey lovely people! Hope everyone had a great week so far. I'm loving the weather here in New Jersey. Finally get to go out wearing shorts and shirts with no sleeves. I call this winning! hahaha
So I wanted to start off with a confession. I bought this awesome texture shorts two years ago and never bothered to wear them. They have been sitting in my drawer with the tag still attached.
I finally decided it's time to wear them and i can't believe I wasted to summer without. Anyways I'm so happy they fit right and I paired it with a simple black shirt and over the knee boots. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  This outfit selection is great for the evening, date night, girls night, an occasion.
Since its been two years, I will be linking below similar high-waist shorts and some of my favorites that I would wear this summer.

Denim on Denim

Hey there!!! I just wanted to start off by saying thank you for joining me week after week on Fiercely Beautiful. You ladies are amazing!! 
I want to share with you all how much I need to take a risk. A risk in life,  my outfits that I share with you, and sharing another side of me. So today I'm starting off with taking more risks with my outfits i put together and now purchase or receive. This outfit im wearing is a small risk for me, maybe not for you. hahaha! I think if we dont take any risk or become uncomfortable we fall short. We never reach our full potential. Why do that, who cares. Take some risks! But I have never wore denim with denim. I would always think the shades would never match or I would absolutely look terrible. It didn't stop though, I just took the risk and it actually worked out great! Don't you think? Leave a comment below and let me know what risk you have or will be taking in any aspect of your life. 

P.S. I will be adding more of the Fierce side of me to my Blog. I can't wait to share with you! 
Hint: Martial Artist ;)
