Being a blogger means many things, one of them is...Selfies are my bread and butter! Taking a selfie is no easy task, on today's post, with the help of Neutrogena's Oil Free Pink Grapefruit line, I'll give you some tips to take your best selfie yet.
SPANISH
Ser bloguera significa muchas cosas, una de ellas es que los selfies son mi pan de cada dia. Yo creo que todas saben que tomar selfies no es nada facil, por lo cual hoy con una ayudita por parte de Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit line les voy a dar unos consejitos para tomarte una selfie divina. 




No-Filter-needed-skin

The first step to a great selfie is healthy skin, skin that can totally rock the #nofilter tag. Products to clean and care for your skin are a must, I have gotten to play around with Neutrogena's Pink Grapefruit line for a while and it's great to get rid of dirt that clogs up the pores, later causing acne...oh, and the products smell delicious!!!!!

El paso mas importante para lograr una buena selfie es cuidar la piel, una cutis sana no necesita filtros ni efectos. Los productos Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit limpian la piel y se deshacen de las causantes de el acne...ademas la fragancia es deliciosa.

Tilt it
A head-on photo is almost always too harsh! so tilt your face or your phone, it'll soften the look and show off your best angles.
Una foto de frente es un poco muy severa, al inclinar tu cara o telefono hacia un lado, le das un toque delicado a la selfie y puedes mostrar tu mejor perfil.


Have fun
Don't take it too seriously! be silly, make faces and enjoy yourself. Make sure to convey some emotion, after all, the point of social media is to connect with people.
No te tomes esto muy en serio, haz muecas y diviertete.



Play with Light
Taking a good selfie can be a workout, you might have to chase sunlight/ good lighting around your house or location but the best accessory to a selfie is a great ray of light!
Una buena selfie siempre viene acompanada por muy buena luz, busca diferentes locaciones y tipos de luz para darle el toque final a tus fotos.

Peter Som for Kohls

summer moto jacket, peter som for design nation, peter som for kohls

I have come to the conclusion that, jackets are the building blocks of a wardrobe. A good, a great jacket, with mixed media, draping, intricate details or exotic color has the ability to elevate any look.
Recently, I have been stocking up on jackets and layering them over absolutely everything.
This moto jacket is actually made of a light jersey fabric and it is perfect for cool August nights. 

SPANISH
He concluido que las chaquetas/sacos/chamarras son la base de cualquier vestuario. Una buena chaqueta, de buena calidad, con detalles unicos, o en un color alegre tiene la capacidad de elevar cualquier look.
Recientemente, he estado amontonando chaquetas y combinandolas con todas mis prendas.
Esta chaqueta estilo moto en vez de cuero es hecha de un algodon ligero que la hace perfecta para las noches frias de agosto.

If you're not going on a fabulous vacation this Summer, well...then, fake it 'til you make it! 
Summer is the perfect excuse to wear bright colors, loud prints and beach-worthy accessories, that is exactly what I did with this outfit. I asked myself "what would I wear on a cruise or to explore a Caribbean island?
Here it is, a gorgeous, super comfy and chic LUSH maxi (this dress comes in several colors and prints)
with lots of gold jewels and splashes of color!
Hope you're enjoying your Summer as much as I am enjoying this outfit.

Esta temporada te da el pretexto perfecto para ponerte colores fuertes, estampados deliciosos y accesorios de playa; eso fue lo que hize con este outfit. Me puse la prendas que me pondria para un crucero o para explorar las Bahama.
Este vestido de LUSH es super comodo, chic y divino (esta disponible en varios colores y estampados) lo combine con varias cadenas doradas y mucho color!
Espero que esten disfrutando este verano tanto como yo estoy disfrutando este outfit.

#NoMasPoros Challenge


neutrogena pore refining line review, neutrogena pore refining cleanser, neutrogena anti-aging skin care

Neutrogena has challenged me to try out their Pore Refining line for 7 days and document my journey and results. In today's post I am sharing both with you. 
For the most part, I feel lucky to have very healthy skin, however, I have always been self conscious about my over-sized pores. Large pores give the appearance of unkempt, aging skin and can lead to awful makeup application, a regimen that promises to vanish those issues is a definite MUST for me.
It's important you know that while you can't completely vanish the appearance of pores, you can significantly minimize their size. 

SPANISH
Neutrogena me reto a probar su linea Pore Refining durante 7 dias, me pidieron que documentara mi experiencia y resultados y en el post de hoy voy a compartir mi experiencia con ustedes. 
Simpre me he considerado afortunada por tener piel relativamente sana pero algo que siempre me ha molestado es el tamaño y apariencia de mis poros. Poros grandes hacen que tu piel se vea maltratada y envejecida. Una linea de cuidado de piel especializada en disminuir el tamaño de los poros es perfecta para mi, por lo cual disfrute mucho esta experiencia.
Es importante que sepan que la apariencia de los poros no pueden ser completamente eliminada pero puedes ser disminuida.

Skin clogged with dirt and toxins can lead to enlarged pores, which is why a range that cleanses and exfoliates and tones skin is extremely important. The Pore Refining line penetrates the skin to cleanse and polish away dullness and rough patches with Salicylic Acid and Alpha-hydroxys.

la piel congestionada con mugre y toxinas puede causar que los poros se agranden por lo cual  un habito de limpieza es extremadamente importante. El Pore Refining Cleanser penetra la cutis para limpiar y pulir la piel, eliminando parches asperos con la ayuda del acido Salicylic y Alpha-Hydroxys.

After removing my makeup, I washed my face with the Neutrogena Pore Refining Daily cleanser, morning and night during the 7 day period. I loved the gel consistency, which was gentle on my skin and penetrated the surface to purge all toxins and dirt.

Despues de desmaquillarme me lavo la cara con el cleanser, dos veces al dia durante una semana. La consistencia gel me encanta porque es delicada pero efectiva.




I buffed away dullness 3 times a week with the Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser, which is super creamy and very gentle.



After cleansing and exfoliating, I apply the Pore Refining Toner which polishes off skin without drying and preps the skin for moisturizing.

Despues de lavar y exfoliar la piel, use el tonificador preparandola para la crema humectante.


The very last and most indulgent step is the Pore Refining Moisturizer, this is one of the best ones I have ever tried. It's the perfect blend between creamy and light, it's perfect for day and night. This moisturizer has Retinol and Beta Hydroxy Acid that simply made my skin look radiant.

El ultimo paso es la crema, la cual me encanto. El Pore Refining Moisturizer tiene la textura perfecta, es genial para el dia y noche. Contiene Retinol y Beta Hydroxy Acid los cuales volvieron my piel radiante.


TIP: Always warm up your skin care products with palms/fingers to activate ingredients before applying! 
TIP: Siempre calienta los productos para el cuidado de la piel con las llemas de tus dedos para activar los ingredientes. 


The 7 Day Journey
Day 1                       Day 5                               Day 7 
As you can see, using this skin care range for only 5 days made a significant difference in the texture and appearance of my skin. My skin looked less oily and the difference in size of my pores was so satisfying, I have continued using this range even after the 7 Day Challenge.

Despues de solo 5 dias la linea Pore Refining cambio la textura y apariencia de mi piel. La grasa de mi piel fue casi eliminada por completo y mis poros definitivamente se encojieron. los resultados fueron tan satisfactorios que voy a continuar usando esta linea.

Leather and Lace Juxtaposition

I have been away a while, from the blog that is. While it may sound absurd, I have actually stayed away for the good of Camila's Closet, I have been working on some exciting updates and potential projects. I have an opportunity to give many aspects of my life a fresh start and I'm sulking in that joy...hope y'all understand!
In the meantime, let's talk about one of my Birthday purchases, I totally splurged on some BCBGeneration (on sale...yay!!). This leather quilted vest is a fall must-have!

SPANISH
He estado ausente por un tiempo y aunque suene absurdo, lo he hecho por el beneficio de Camila's Closet, se los juro. Me refiero a lo que me ha tenido ocupada, estoy planeando unos retoquitos y proyectos que les van a encantar. 
Por ahora hablemos sobre mis compras de cumpleanos, las cual combine juntas en este outfit.
Este chaleco de cuero es esencial para las estaciones entrantes.

For my 23rd birthday, I treated myself with two pieces from this beautiful brand.
One of the things I love most about BCBGeneration is that all their pieces are trendy, yet classic and will eventually become a staple in your wardrobe. I decided to pair both pieces together, I adore this outfit and I hope you do too.

Whenever I am in a fashion jam, there are a couple essential tips and rules I follow, they're surefire ways to look polished and feel gorgeous without actually putting too much of an effort .
I bought these pieces with that mentality.

*A a chiffon dress with one intricate or stand out detail is the easiest thing to throw on will always make you look dressed up...and it's comfortable.
*Mixing a very feminine piece with a much edgier one gives the impression that you spent hours thinking about your outfit when you really just threw it on

Floral Hi-lo Dress

floral high low dress, what to wear to a summer wedding, what to wear to a garden wedding, beach wedding outfits,


What do we think about body image? 
Do we genuinely think about it anymore? or do we just accept what others thought up for us? 
I wish I could say I am one of those women whose mind has not been invaded by everyone else's perception of beauty (Also, do those women exist?) but unfortunately, I am!
Now, I feel blessed and confident to have the ability to not care at all, that sounds like opposing principles, so let me explain…
I believe in the image of femininity that suggest women are supposed to be delicate and take pride in their appearance but I also see no difference between men and women, which means I personally enjoy being delicate and getting dolled up but if you don't I will never judge you or avoid having you in my life.
I can freely stare at my naked body in the mirror without uttering one hurtful or hate-filled word, I love myself., my curves and extra bits of this and that. Bits I constantly tell myself I need to get rid of, while bitting on a greasy cheeseburgers and inhaling french fries. I blame this on an attitude I am comfortable living with, that attitude makes me aware of the shit standards of beauty but in no way means I obey them. I do hope that my daughter/son grow up in a world i n which these standards no longer exist! 
If you're struggling with body image, I advice you to not give a shit! 


SPANISH
Que piensan sobre la importancia que le damos a nuestra apariencia fisica? La verdad pienso que hay muy pocas personas que en esta epoca tienen opiniones genuinas sobre el tema, todos de una manera u otra hemos sido afectados por la informacion y nociones proveidas por los medios. Yo quisiera poder decir que aquellas cosas no me han afectado, pero si lo han hecho, afortunadamente no la han logrado de gran manera. A veces me comparo a esos standards de belleza y me siento mal pero 30 segundos despues me embuto una hamburguesa sin remordimiento. Yo creo que lo importante es no juzgarte a ti misma ni a los demas, sobretodo no juzgar a otros. En cuanto a tu autoestima, es normal ponerle atencion a esos standards pero lo mas importante es no obedecerlos!
