As Ya’ll know, it’s only fair that I do a “Mother’s Day 2020 Gift Guide”, because last year I shared a great guide that you all loved! But I did notice that you were all asking to see more jewelry pieces that were cute and inexpensive, some of you guys even brought to my attention that you guys wanted to see what I recommended for your Momma’s, jewelry wise. So I thought to myself, why not switch things up this year and do an entire guide of beautiful jewelry pieces for your Momma’s that you guys can shop right from Marilin’s Jewelry 💎:
Hopefully this guide will help you guys find a little something for your Momma’s this Mother’s Day, we’ve got a little something for each type of Mom! Plus, don’t forget that Marilin’s Jewelry is offering FREE SHIPPING, when you use code : FREESHIP19 ! #HappyShopping 💎🛍💝
As many of you know Marilin’s Jewelry is literally my L.I.F.E 💎! It’s only fair to say this, because I was basically raised at my parents store. So much so, that every client that sees me always says the same exact thing, “Omg Yesi! You’ve gotten so big”! They were always so used to seeing me running around the shop or pretending to know what I was doing ever since the age of 7 🤣! But now I am all grown up, and managing two storefront locations alongside my parents, creating new marketing techniques & learning each and everyday what this business has to offer. I make it my daily goals to always continue bettering our brand, it’s not easy because I’m not a professional marketing director, but I feel like the fact that I care so deeply for this brand, it gives me more motivation to do better for it.
Creating can be difficult sometimes, especially when you’re working extra-hard to do something completely different from the norm. I’ve found that being different will definitely set you apart from other brands, and actually give you a chance to be seen as an original. In the jewelry industry, it’s extremely important to be authentic and have originality, especially if you’d want be seen by others. Which is why it’s been kinda difficult for me to find exactly how I wanted to market our Insta page. I’ve found myself on many occasions in a place, where I would come up with an idea, do it for a couple of months and then see it plastered on every other jewelers page. So I would feel, like maybe the idea was cool for the moment, but I gotta move on to something much more different + cooler 😎! Which is why progress & change are also very important factors in a business.
With that being said, I always envisioned our brand to take the next step and create an online presence. But as many of you know, working a full-time job and building a website can be difficult to-do at the same time. So when our storefront locations were mandated by the County to close on March 19th due to COVID-19, I thought to myself, let me make this time as useful as possible. I not gonna sit here and lie to you, the first couple of days I did take some time off & relaxed, because I physically and mentally needed it. But after I did, I felt like I could finally set my attention towards something I always wanted to do. Which was, build a website for Marilin’s & figure out what I wanted our brand to be. Figuring out what I wanted our brand to look like, was much more simpler than building a website. But I thankfully got both things done in a timely manner, I came up with a plan for our brand + built a simple website for the time being, because I really wanted to have an online presence as quickly as possible for our clients during these unprecedented times. The website is definitely a work in-progress, but the first step was taken already, and that’s the important part from all of this. Now that our website has been live for just a couple of days, I have realized why it’s so important to have one and I am glad that I took that initiative to build it, because now this step has opened up a whole new world for our brand! So cheers to Marilin’s new achievements & to many more!

Now that it’s officially Fall🍂, not only can we bring out all of our dark-toned clothing + leopard printed sweaters, but we can also plump our lips with some cute Fall Lippy tones! And I’m all for it; I personally enjoy wearing darker tones on my lips, because I feel like they look best with my skin tone. So you can definitely always find me rocking a few of my fave beige-toned Lippies all year round, but especially during this time of the year!
When leaning towards to the beige-pallets, I always try to purchase Lippies that will be long-lasting + with a matte finish, I just feel like the matte finish always makes the lips look so much nicer (although they can usually dry up your lips). A good recommendation for keeping your lips looking flawless & not dry, would be that once you remove the matte lipstick, always try to apply chapstick or ointments after removal. This will help your lips feel refreshed & smooth, so whenever you do decide to reapply Matte Lipstick your lips won’t look chapped.
Now that I’ve poured all the deets , here’s a little list of some great Lippies that you just gotta have for Fall of 2019 :
Summer in Miami means three things, ungodly heat, white sand beaches, and Miami Swim week. So imagine my frustration finding something to wear to the events that fit my style and function.
For my dress I took to one of my favorite stores for cute outfits, Forever21. Dressing stylish doesn’t require breaking the bank. I was immediately attracted to this stylish slit dress that showed off just the right amount of skin. The bright vivid colors popped against the white back drops and runways making sure I stood out amongst the crowds of fellow party goers.
Then came figuring out what accessories to pair with my outfit. My advice, always go with a good pair of big gold hoops. Having a pair of gold hoops in Miami is rite of passage. They complement any outfit and provided the perfect balance between style and bag for your buck!
Being invited to Miami Swim Week events has one big caveat though. With so many events crammed into a short amount of time you gotta plan getting too and from events quickly and efficiently. On any given day I spend up most of 8 hours standing which means I need the absolute most comfortable and stylish heels available period! These Michael Kors Berkley Leather Platform Sandals are my go-to pair when I know I’ll be up standing all day. My only regret is not buying them in all the different colors #xmaswishlist2019
