NYX Face Awards Top 30 UnBoxing 2014 !!!!!!

Hey beauties!!!

Oh eM Gee I am soooo beyond excited to be a participant in the NYX Face Awards this year!!!! I still can barely believe this is real!!! This morning I woke up to my door bell ringing. Of course I jumped out of bed and ran to the door and was so happy to see the FedEx man standing there with a HUGE and HEAVY box from NYX!!!!

I literally took the fastest shower ever, threw my hair in a top knot and did what may be the most natural makeup you guys have ever seen on me. I was so excited to open the box up but I wouldn't peek inside until I was ready to film and share my initial reactions with all of you. So, within the hour I was filming-ready and sat down to open up the box of goodies!

Below I'm including my unboxing video so you can see my first impressions as I opened the box. I'm also adding close up photos of all the products that were sent with a full list of the items and the colors. If you guys wants a more in-depth blog post or possible video of any of the products then please let me know. I definitely want to do a review/swatches video of the macaron lipsticks because I have literally been obsessed over there and dying to try them!

I am so excited to begin this journey and I still can't really believe this is really really happening!!!! YouTube and all of you have brought so many amazing opportunities into my life and for that I will forever be grateful! I hope you all enjoy the video I'm planning for the 1st round and I hope I make you proud above all else!!! Thank YOU all!! Also, a HUGE thank you to NYX and all the sponsors for being so incredibly generous and for creating this opportunity for YouTubers and artists to show their talent!! Thank you!

Love you all,
xoxo, Rocio Laura

Spring Blossom OOTD

Hey beautiful!!

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!! Yesterday was such a beautiful day here in NYC that I decided to go to the city with Noel. We went to the Museum of Natural History and then for a little walk through Central Park. After all the excitement we were both starving so we went uptown to Mama Sushi - one of our favorite places to eat, Noel loves their french fries. It was a nice family day and we were able to enjoy the gorgeous weather.

I've been on a Super Duper romper kick lately so once I woke up and saw that sun shining I knew it was the perfect day to wear a romper. The one I wore yesterday is from Shop Lately. If you're not familiar Shop Lately is a website that hosts a bunch of small boutiques. It's kind of like going to the mall or a flea market without leaving the house. I love being able to browse items from different boutiques and I usually find really cute things! I'll leave the link to romper below in the outfit details as well as my Shop Lately profile link so you guys can check out what items I've been adding to my favorites and considering picking up in the future.

Anywho, I love this particular romper because of 3 key features. First is the flowy shape which feels like a dress but provides the coverage of shorts. The material is so light weight that I just want to dance around all day and make the fabric float. Secondly, I adore the open back. Yesterday was a little windy so I paired the romper with a cardigan from the Gap but in the summer time this will be the perfect romper to wear with a top knot bun. (And here's a secret - I'm looking into getting two new tattoos soon that will look so cute in the summer when my hair is up and my back is out, but shhh don't tell anyone yet I want it to be a surprise) The final key feature of this romper that made me do a double take is definitely the color!! The video and photos do not do it justice. The pink is so pretty and vibrant but its balanced perfectly by the background color of the fabric. I absolutely fell in love!

For shoes I wore an old pair of sandals from Target that had the perfect color combination to match with the romper. To finish off the look I grabbed my over-sized JustFab purse and was out the door.

I apologize in advanced, the photos are a little out of focus, but I also filmed a short ootd video where you can see the outfit perfectly. I hope you enjoy this post and let me know what you think!

Warm Tones Prom Makeup Tutorial

Hey Beauties!!

Today I uploaded a video showing you a prom appropriate makeup tutorial using warm tones. This video was actually a collaboration, so be sure to check out the cool tones video by my friend Cindy (DRBrooklyn730 on YouTube).

I absolutely love love love gold accessories so I was excited to create a warm tones look that would work great with gold jewelry. Prom is a super special occasion and I hope you guys enjoy this look I created. I definitely wanted something glittery, elegant, and long lasting!

Personally, I never attended my High School prom and I always regretted it. I tried to make it up by attending my college prom but it wasn't the same. I actually graduated college a semester early (and was pregnant at the time), so when prom came around I had already technically been done with college for a full semester and I had just given birth about a month before the prom. I definitely did not feel my best as I still had a little belly. It was a nice night and still special but not the dream prom I always envisioned when I was younger. It still makes me a little sad looking back.

Filming this video was actually really exciting for me because I felt as if I was actually getting ready for a prom!! I hope everyone who is attending prom this year has an absolutely amazing and memorable night!!

Below I'm including the video as well as a full product list and more photos of the look. Let me know what you guys think?!

Love you!!
