Beret on Repeat..

Happy Monday friends & MLK Day! I hope you are spending the day with your loved ones if your off! I had to go into the office for a few hours today! The only benefit is there is little to NO traffic. A WIN for me!! We are in the process of moving right now. So if you all are like me and hate moving then you totally feel me when I say its so EXHAUSTING!! I mean just the thought of it gives me anxiety! It can be such a long tiring process. Right?!

I have been so into accessories right now. The hat trend has got me in love with Berets. I think it is the perfect accessory for any look day or night. Just throw on a beret and insta chic!!

I will link a few of my favorite affordable styles to shop below. Tell me what are your favorite accessories at the moment? Do you like to go for trendy pieces or do you stick to classic styles? 

I hope you all enjoy this Martin Luther King Holiday!!

Lauren

Happy New Year!!

Hi friends Happy New Year! Happy 2018! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are starting off the new year with good intentions. I'm sorry I have been MIA for the past month. I got super sick in December for about 3 weeks. Literally. I got the flu right after we went to Disneyland and it turned into a bad sinus infection. I really don't think I have ever been so sick. I ended up feeling better right before Christmas. So we spent New Years Eve at home with some Chinese food, champagne and Martinelli's for the kids for our countdown! My parents have an annual New Years Day party so that is always fun to attend and catch up with family and friends.

I wanted to share some of my New Years GOALS. I'm not a big fan of resolutions I almost never do them. I love to have achievable and attainable goals. Even if they seem impossible you still have to put it out there. Get your self in the mindset for success. I'm also doing a vision board this week. I'm such a visual person that a vision board is a great reminder of my daily, weekly and monthly goals.

So to start off the New Year my first Goal is just to be more of ME. It so easy to get caught up in what  everyone else is doing that you can easily lose focus and what YOU are truly about. I know I have a lot to offer and sometimes it takes little reminders to tell ourselves how AWESOME we really are.  

I want to take my fitness and health more serious. I do workout regularly but I would like to step it up a notch. I do 3 days a week alternating between weights and cardio. I really want to see what kind of changes I can do for my body if I workout more often and maintain a healthier, well balanced diet. Its not like I'm a horrible eater but I do have to make more of an effort to eat MORE. I find myself so busy and scheduling myself for to many things that I will literally just squeeze meals in or skip. This is something that will take priority. I like to call this my therapy. Haha!! 

Business is a BIG one. I want to take more opportunities to grow my business. Which also means setting aside time to work away from work. Haha. I do have a part-time job working as a Buyer. I have to go into the office at least 2 days out of the week. Having a creative outlet to go to is such a blessing and in the new year Im looking forward to working with great new brands and growing my blog.  Being a part of campaign this year is also a huge GOAL of mine.  

This is just 3 BIG goals I want to share with you, but there are always small daily goals I like to give myself. If you don't already do so I really recommend It makes you feel great when there are achieved and your ready to take on whatever is next.

So heres to 2018 (cheers!!!) and being the best of ME I can be!!

XX,

Lauren

December 1 ...

Hi friends I'm coming to on this very happy Friday!! We are officially in December and you know what that mean? Lauren Reyes Blog's #25daysofchristmas. To kick off this ultra exciting month I thought what better way to start off the Holidays with our annual Christmas Card. We have been doing christmas cards for 8 years now. It is a family tradition we like to do every year. It is such a great way to capture everybody especially the kids. I love just going through old christmas card and seeing how much all of us have changed and grown. We went with up Costco to share our holiday cards to bring warmth to friends and family.

We have 3 options we can decide on...So I will post them below and let me know which is your favorite in the comments below.

Happy December babes!!

don't forget to #laurenreyesblog #25daysofchristmas!! So I can see all your fun holidays pics!!

xx,

Lauren

25 Days of Christmas

We kicked off Thanksgiving weekend with lots of food to say the least. It was a nice time to spend with all my family and catch up with one another. This month we recently gained another angel with my Grandfather Eddie passing away. He was 91 and lived an very extraordinary life. As a family it was nice to share our favorite memories we all had of him. I know it was tough for my mom who lost a father and this was our first holiday without him. We also saw the movie COCO and it was the best movie!! It couldn't have been anymore perfect! The message was just what we needed. Of course we all cried. Leave it to Disney to make that happen! But really it was a blessing just to spend time together. 

Its that time of year again!! The Holidays have officially started and this year to kick off the Christmas Season I will be doing 25 days of Christmas. What is that you say? Well, you can stop by LaurenReyesblog.com and check out a NEW post everyday for 25 days straight!! I will be sharing everything from Holiday inspired looks for all your go-to events. Traditions that we do in our family as well as a few you have shared with me. The best places to take your kids for Christmas fun and definitely some gift giving for all those special people in your life!

Lets get this holiday season started!! Stay tuned for more CHEER!!

xx,

Lauren
