Children's Party Healthy Food & DIY Decor Ideas


I love hosting parties and finding creative ways to entertain. I also love incorporating healthy treats [in addition to the guilty pleasure] I now my guests will love. The items I'm featuring in this post does just that for little guests. These treats I served for Catalina's birthday party are perfect for any kid birthday or special children's occasions


1. I made yummy animal sandwiches by using this CuteZCute Animal Friends Food Decor, Cutter & Stamp Kit.


Making these sandwiches is much simpler than it looks. I used the cutter to cut the shapes into whole wheat bread and the stamper to help create the faces.


I made three kinds of sandwiches - ham and provolone cheese, turkey and swiss cheese, and cheddar cheese sandwiches (for the kids who prefer to go meat-free).


I also used the cutter to cut the cheese slices for the animal sandwiches.


I really loved the way they came out...and I'm not even a child! I also coated the bread slices with thin layers of low-fat olive oil mayonnaise.


I used pink sandwich flags to label the different sandwiches. They were just as delicious as they were cute.



2. I made sweet fruit sticks using a seasonal fruit mix and barbecue skewers.


3. I did some DIY decorating to the beverages I served.


I used scalloped Avery labels to make stickers that said "Catalina's 4th Birthday".


I wrapped pink construction paper around organic, low-sugar juice boxes before placing the stickers on the faces of the box, I had to remove the straws to securing wrap the construction paper but simply used my small glue gun to reattach them.


I just love the way they turned out!


I even did the same to the box of paper straws!


These straws not only keep children from spilling water on themselves but they also add to the decor theme as well. 


I pasted some pink washi tape on two mason jars that I sued to hold napkins and utensils.


The party was a great success and the kids all loved the treats. Of course I had to also include some chicken pastelitos for the adults but you get the picture. 


How do you like to celebrate your little ones' birthdays and milestones? Let me know in the comment section below.

MAXImum Elegance

Dress: Vince Camuto // Bag: c/o Mary Lai // Shoes: Michael Kors // Belt: Vintage Gucci // Bracelet: Kendra Scott via RocksBox // Temporary Tattoos: Lionheart Designs & Kismet Cosmetics // Makeup: Urban Decay, CIRCA Beauty and Anastasia Beverly Hills


I recently stayed at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina with my family for a long Summer weekend getaway. It's a beautiful resort in Cambridge, Maryland and the perfect place to showcase some fabulous summer style. 


For a date night dinner, I wore this beautiful Vince Camuto maxi dress. I love the blend of light blue and navy hues. And the light blue print reminds me of willow patterned china.  


The vertical stripes along the front and back of this dress really elongate my 5'4'' frame. I enjoy dressing in  casual maxi dresses during warm days. This is an elegant option for an evening out. I'm also a fan of the delicate details of this dress, like the neckline and the ribbon around the collar.


I've cinched my waist with a vintage gold toned Gucci belt. It belonged to my mother and she gave it to me a few years ago. I adore pieces that have a bit of history and/or sentimental value like this one. 


To add a touch of modern sparkle, I put on some temporary tattoos by Lionheart Print & Kismet Cosmetics. I featured them in my New Orleans Haul here.


I carried my Mary Lai handbag. This is one of my favorite bags because, not only is it beautiful, it actually has two sides! It's like two bags for the price of one! You can see the other side of this bag here.


I finished this Outfit of the Day with my Michael Kors wedges. Their navy patent leather with a gold "MK" logo medallion. The wedge itself features navy and white stripes. 


I created a lovely gold eyeshadow look using my new Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette. I added a pop of brightness with my Spicy liquid lipstick by Anastasia Beverly Hills

En mi estadia en el Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina usé este vestido largo de Vince Camuto. Es bello y me encanta como las lineas del vestido me hacen ver mas alta.


El estampado de la tela me hacen recordar las porcelanas Willow. A mi me gusta vestir de vestidos largo y liviano en el verano. Esta es una opción elegante para un cena o evento de noche.


Este vestido tiene detalles que me encantan como el escote y la cinte del cuello.


Agregué un toque de brillo moderno con los tatuajes modernos de Lionheart Print y Kismet Cosmetics. Uso una correa dorado por Gucci para ajustar mi cintura.


También tengo puesto una pulsera de Kendra Scott de metal dorada con piedras azules. Hace un buen juego con mi cartera de Mary Lai. Esta cartera tiene dos fachadas diferentes. ¡Así que es como tener dos carteras en uno! Puede ver el otro lado de esta cartera aquí.


Mis zapatos son de Michael Kors. Son de charol en color azul marino. Tiene medallones con los initiales MK.


Usé mi Naked Smokey palette de Urban Decay para crear ese look de sombras doradas. Tambien tengo puesto el labial de liquido "Spicy" por Anastasia Beverly Hills. 


Como le gustan vestir elegantes en el verano. Déjeme saber en la sección de comentarios abajo.

Wet Swim Wear

Swimsuit: c/o WET Swimwear // Hat: Prima Donna // Cover-Up: Miken // Sunglasses: Kate Spade // Flip-Flops: c/o Havaianas // Makeup: Urban Decay, Kat Von D // Nail Polish: Christian Louboutin // Temporary Tattoos: Lionheart Prints & Kismet Cosmetics


Miami Swim Week may be over but I'm sharing my favorite swimsuit today today. This retro bikini (Dalia top & Jenna bottom) is by WET Swimwear and I can't stop wearing it this summer. In fact, the photos in this post were taken at Robert Moses Beach in New York and they Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. 


I love retro two-piece swimsuits. They're super flattering for every shape and size. And, although they do provide more coverage than your average bikini, they can still be quite sexy. This one has great details like the ruffled trims and waist cinching belt. 


I'm wearing a Miken cover-up over my swimsuit. I like having cover-ups for when I start to get chilly or just want to layer up a little. This black crochet kimono is perfect. Not to mention that it's very affordable at just $14.99 at Macy's. [Get it here]


I always leave my jewelry at home when I go to the beach, which can leave my beach looks a little dull. That's why I'm obsessed with the gold/silver foil temporary tattoos trend. It's like wearing jewelry that you never have to worry about losing!


The tattoos I'm wearing on this post are a joint product by Lionheart Prints & Kismet Cosmetics. I talked about these in my New Orleans Haul post. You can see it here.


I'm also wearing my new pair of Havaianas flip flops. This is from their special 2015 Tribal collection. They're comfortable, high-quality and pretty darn cool. 


Lastly, I kept my makeup simple and true to the retro style. I used the new Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette, CIRCA Beauty's Playa Paraiso Lip & Cheek Stain.  I added a pop of red with  Kat Von D's Underage Red liquid lipstick and Rouge Louboutin nail polish by Christian Louboutin. Protection from the sun's rays is very important. That's why I always carry a pair of sunglasses, like these by Kate Spade, and my Provenve Cheetah Sun Hat by Prima Donna floppy sun hat. 

What are you wearing to the beach this summer? Let me know in the comment section below.

A mi me fascina vestidos de baño estilo antiguo. Este de WET Swimwear (Dalia y Jenna) es mi favorito y no me lo puedo quitar. Incluso, estas fotos son de una playa de Nueva York y la play del Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay en Maryland. 


Aunque estos tipos de vestidos de baño cubren más que el bikini moderno, son elegantes y también pueden ser sexy. Me encantan los detalles como los volantes y la correa. 


También tengo un chal de Miken comprado en Macy's por solo $14.99. No solo es lindo pero también me cubre cuando hay un poco de frío o cuando me quiero tapar del un poco del sol. 


Nunca recomendo usar joyas en la playa pero no tenemos que tener trajes aburridos. Los tatuajes temporarios de tono dorados y plateados son una gran forma de agregar brillo y diversión en su traje playero. Estos son hecho por la compañias Lionheart Prints y Kismet Cosmetics.


Para protejerme del Sol, estoy usando gafas de Kate Spade y un gorro de Prima Donna. Tambien tengo chancletas de Havaianas. Estoy usando maquillaje estilo retro. Las sombras son del Naked Smokey Paletter de Urban Decay y  el Play Paraiso Lip & Cheek de CIRCA Beauty. Añadí toques rojos con el labial Underage Red de Kat Von D y el esmalte Rouge Louboutin de Christian Louboutin.
