WELCOME to Friday and the end of the longest week on earth! NO IDEA why this work week dragged by, but I am super excited & happy that it is finally Friday! 

I have virtually no weekend plans - I want to take it easy since next Friday - my sister and I are off to ORLANDO, FL to meet up with my family & go to DISNEY! We are a huge disney family and we go once per year. I am so freaking EXCITED! I will definitely be instagramming up a storm so make sure you are following me to keep up with my Disney World shenanigans! Pamelaisanchez

In the meantime, I am trying with all my might to resist the amazing Zara sale that is going on right now. Let's be real here - I won't be resisting it - I am just editing my shopping cart. Zara is my absolute favorite store and there is not one in Charlotte - SO happy they have an online store! I will definitely be sharing what I order. 

Have a great weekend everyone!! :)

Shopbop Sale Picks: 25% off all sale items!

You guys know I love me some Shopbop. I mean WHO DOESN'T? I don't discriminate when it comes to shopping: I love shopping at the mall, in boutiques, and online. Shopbop is definitely my favorite online store - apart from (FAST) free shipping and returns, there is no tax and they have amazing customer service. I have been shopping there a lot recently because they carry an amazing amount of designers that are a bit harder to find in Charlotte.

Right now - Shopbop is offering 25% off all of their sale items with code EXTRA25

I have been "window" shopping the sale & these are my favorites!

Bath and Body Works, J.Crew, and VS Beauty Haul!

I had not sat down to film in SO long, so I decided to film a quick haul last night after I got back from the mall where I picked up some yummy goodies for my home and of course myself! :) 

I had resisted the B&BW candles for too long, and my new apartment definitely called for new candles! The B&BW Semi Annual sale is still going on so you can get all of the candles I got for $10 still! They also had a bunch more on sale. I also needed to stock up on my favorite signature fragrance from VS - Secret Charm. Nothing better than having you & your home smell amazing!

VS Beauty Online (My favorite is Secret Charm) - usually 5 products for $30
J.Crew Boardwalk Linen Skirt in White (Still 25% off online!!)

Let me know if you have any questions! As always you can leave me video requests down below as well. This week I am planning on filming the Colors of the Rainbow Tag and my skincare routine at the very least! :)

Weekend Update: Home

Happy Monday loves! I hope you all had a GREAT weekend! :) I am finally feeling A LOT better and am healthy again. My sister Natalie and I drove to Atlanta on Friday afternoon and we spent the weekend there. My grandparents from Mexico are visiting and I hadn't seen them in almost three years - I was so happy to see them. On Saturday, we had my littlest cousin Melinda's First Communion. It was really great to spend quality time with my family - always the best type of weekends.

Where have I been? UPDATE!

Well well well, I have some explaining to do! I have been a BAD BAD BAD blogger, but I actually have some semi-excuses. Last week was crazy with taking on a different role at work and my sister's birthday, and this week I have been battling one of the worst stomach virus's I have ever had! I don't know exactly how or why I caught the virus, but it had me bed ridden for the better part of this week. Fortunately, I am feeling MUCH better (THANK GOD FOR DOCTORS) and hopefully I will be able to eat a real meal in the near future. I haven't eaten anything but crackers and some soup since Monday. At least it's kind of a diet. 

I am heading to Atlanta for a few days this weekend because my grandmother from Mexico is in town! I am SO excited to see her, I haven't seen her in three years!! I also have my little cousin's first communion tomorrow and I am so excited to see my mom's side of the family as well. I promise to be back to regular blogging/YouTube next week - in the meantime - I did finally upload an updated apartment tour (this was filmed last week, I just finally uploaded it last night)! 

Let me know if you have any questions! :) 

Pictures over the past weeks!

Weekend Re-Cap: Hair did and more moving!

Well, it is back to Monday everyone & it is time to re-cap the weekend! First things first...I got my hair done! Woo hoo! Taylor and Kyle are seriously the best (I have Alexa to thank for that) & they did an amazing job with my hair! :)

Friday night, I literally left work and went straight to my bed because I was suffering from a horrendous pressure migraine. My plan was to just nap, but I woke up at 3 AM. I think I definitely needed to rest! Saturday was hair day, and after I ran some apartment errands and hit up Whole Foods (my fave) too! I got a much needed gel mani and pedicure at my favorite nail salon and then I went to dinner at our restaurant Luciano's with my mom and sister!

my favorite kombucha - guava goddess, family time at Luciano's, the best Zuppa di Marre EVER. HEAVEN for my seafood love!

fresh mani, my current favorite song, salad creation by moi (searched high and low for a wooden bowl and found it at homegoods!), and my bedroom finally coming together (well, at least my bed!)

Sunday - I cleaned out more stuff from our condo and moved it into my apartment. I am still waiting on my dressers, so I am having a hard time organizing all my clothes! I also went to Harris Teeter and stocked up on more groceries and essentials. At night, I went to Pops in the Park at Symphony Park with some of my friends and called it a night! Weekends always go by too fast :( My apartment is progressing - stay tuned for an updated tour this week!! Have a wonderful week!

To say this week has been exhausting is to say the least! Moving is tough guys. My entire body is sore, I haven't been sleeping enough, and to make matters worse, I haven't been to the gym in over a week and have been eating out constantly. I feel tired, gross and just READY for the move to be over to to start getting back to my regular routine! Add in my car battery dying while moving & you get the gist of my week so far!

In more positive news... WE MOVED! My sister and I have spent 2 nights already in our new place and our apartment is coming together so nicely. I was happy when my mom (who is an interior designer) was blown away by everything we had chosen! I will MOST definitely be filming an updated apartment tour this weekend so stay tuned for that! I am planning lots of great organization videos like closet, bathroom, and an updated makeup collection/storage video! I plan on moving the rest of my stuff this weekend and organizing more since next week is my sister Natalie's birthday and we are going to have 4 girls staying with us plus a party on Saturday night! I am also getting my hair re-highlighted tomorrow! Yay! My roots are out of control and I am in desperate need of it. 

Just wanted to pop in and say hello! Have a great weekend!

Collective Clothing and Beauty Haul + Apricot Lane Review!

Happy Wednesday Everyone! We are halfway done with the week and if all goes as planned today- I get my box springs for my new place and I may actually stay there tonight! WOO HOO! I have a haul video (big surprise right??) to share with some extremely cute items I picked up last week at Apricot Lane last week, as well as some other fun things these past few weeks! (Click on the video link for links to other products that I picked up)
If you read my post last Friday, I attended a blogging event last week at Apricot Lane Boutique here in Charlotte! It was at Apricot Lane's brand new store at the Stonecrest Shopping Center. I had so much fun meeting other Charlotte bloggers and trying on fun outfits! You know me - anything to do with shopping and clothes is RIGHT UP MY ALLEY! The new store is SO cute and they had a variety of pieces that would fit any style - also - the prices are on point! Definitely check out an Apricot Lane if they are in your area - I can't wait to go back!
Much thanks to Bri who organized the event for The Charlotte Social (come check it out if you are a local Charlotte blogger!)
the black dress that I ended up purchasing!

Weekend Shennanigans: Moving, Target, Filming and RHONJ!

Hi EVERYONE! The dreaded Monday morning is here & Charlotte is gloomy as hell! I know some people lost power overnight - what is up with this crazy weather? My weekend basically of consisted of several trips to Target and Homegoods and a lot of time spent organizing my new place! If everything works out, we will be staying there finally on Wednesday! Friday night - I went out to sushi with my sister and my friend Heather and literally just passed out after (LAME). 

If you watched my apartment tour video - you know that our dining room table was delivered without the bottom part, so on Saturday at freaking 8AM, I got them. I was up for the day and headed to Target (aka the DEVIL that stole all my money this weekend). I somehow managed to spend my life savings on cleaning supplies, toilet paper, a wireless router, towels, kitchen items, and other things that are absolutely necessary but SO annoying to buy! Also - I don't think I have ever been to Target before 11AM and damn there were some rowdy toddlers in there!

I also headed to Marshall's since it was in the same shopping center and I found the CUTEST chair for my vanity! It is a gorgeous aqua blue and it is going to match my comforter! It was only $150 and I am so glad I got it!

My sister and I then went to Homegoods and we hit the jackpot! We found such cute things! Here are some of my favorite additions from the weekend

Sunday - I slept in and took it easy. I filmed a few videos (May favorites will be up today!). I headed over to Target AGAIN and got more things. I picked up dinner at Whole Foods (so yummy) and watched the season premiere of RHONJ! They are my favorite housewives, but damn was yesterday a snoozefest or what? 

my life.
