Style Guide: Holiday Hair Inspiration!

Hello Beautiful!,
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

The Holidays bring an array of personal dilemmas and questions. As the new year arrives, we start to think about the things we have accomplished, the goals we have on our to-do list and the experiences we have gone through whether positive or negative. Life lessons that teach us to be stronger, wiser, kind, patient and compassionate. Why is it, that the closer we get to the end of a journey, the more time we take to reflect upon it? Why do we often miss the chance to change our path with an easy “stop and think again” moment? Maybe it isn’t that easy to catch a breath in the midst of life…


I always say that the more you worry about your inside beauty, the more beautiful you look on the outside; however, it never hurts to find new hair tips to try and tricks to learn. These are some awesome tutorials I have ‘Spotted’ from Pinterest, your one and only source into the lives of passionate DIYers, and that I have been looking forward to share and try myself!


I would love for you to submit pics or leave the links to your Holiday Beauty Tutorials if you have any! Remember: It’s Always A Matter of Class Not Cash!

Hola Bellezas!!

La temporada navideña trae consigo una gran cantidad de dilemas e inquietudes a nivel personal. Mientras más se aproxima el Año Nuevo más nos ponemos a meditar acerca de las cosas que hemos logrado, las metas que tenemos por alcanzar y las experiencias que hemos vivido ya sean positivas o negativas. Todas nuestras vivencias se convierten en lecciones de vida que nos enseñan a ser más fuerte, sabio, gentil, paciente y compasivo. Porqué será que entre más cerca nos encontremos del final de un camino, más nos ponemos a refleccionar acerca de lo que vivimos? Porqué perdemos la oportunidad de cambiar nuestro camino con un simple “detente y piensa de nuevo”? Tal vez no es tan fácil parar en el medio del día a día…


Siempre he dicho que entre más nos preocupemos por nuestra belleza interior, más hermosos nos vemos por fuera. La esencia de nuestro ser se encuentra en nuestras acciones y pensamientos; sin embargo, nunca está de más aprender unos trucos del cabello y seguir unos consejos para mantenerlo. Estos son unos tutoriales de belleza que han sido ‘Spotted’ o captados de Pinterest, tú primera y única fuente sobre la vida de los aficionados a las manualidades, y que he querido compartir por un tiempo!


Me encantaria que me mandaras o dejaras la informacion de tus turoriales de belleza para estas temporadas! Recuerda: Es Siempre Una Cuestión de Estilo No De Economía! ♥Sígueme en Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram & Tumblr: HauteFrugalista♥
Disfruta y Comparte!!

Marvelous Mode: Yummy Candy Corn DIY Nails!!

Hello My Friends!!
Haz Click Para Español!

We have been speedily and consistently witnessing the growth of the nail design craze!! From YouTube tutorials, to blog posts, to nails salons, this fun trend can make an outfit go from blah to boom!!  Some salons charge a hefty price for the seasonal update (from $50 to $130), I mean, who can’t forget Kelly Osbourne’s $250K black diamond nails! Others are more frugalicious, like NailBar Midtown, and charge about $25; however, for those without the cash or outside of Miami, I have your solution in a simple and fast Nail DIY!

I have decided to do a super quick and easy Halloween or Harvest nail tutorial!! Its inspired on my Ombre Nails Previous Post which has all the exact steps on how to do shaded nails! This time I went for a Yummy Candy Corn color combo, orange/yellow, and added a bit of glitter to this fun Nail DIY!! I spent $4 in all 3 colors (thank you Target!) and it took me about 15 mins to do the design. Continue reading

Thrilling Threads: Ombre Nails 101!!

Hello My Friends!
Español Al Final De la Página

I hope your week has been amazing! Ombre is a word that lately we are finding everywhere! From hair to clothes, this french shaded trend suits everyone’s personality and color choices. I love how it’s so versatile and such a great way to add some vibrancy to any ensemble. One thing that I love are Ombre nails! I find it super fun to use different nail polish colors and designs to customize our hands! It is a form of art and a way to creatively express our taste and mood.

I felt inspired, after getting my BCAM pink nails at NailBar in Miami, to continue my pink streak!! I learned a little trick there on how to achieve perfect Ombre nails so I decided to share my little DIY! You are going to need 2 to 3 shades of nail polish, remover and a small sponge. The ones that we use for foundation work wonders! Here are the steps on how I did my own shaded nails for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Continue reading

Trending Tips: The Importance of Self-Esteem

Hello My Friends!
Español Al Final De La Página

First, I want to say thanks for keeping up with my articles and blog! It is an honor to have you guys read, comment, like and share my writings! I was featured in Lucky Magazine again!! Can you believe it? what an incredible feeling to be published there as well. As you know, I also have my online column ‘Spotted’ by Dee Trillo for SoFlaNights.Com and I write for Fashion Parway, so I invite you to follow me there as well!

When I was approached to collaborate with Dove and Latina Bloggers Connect, to speak about the importance of self-esteem, I was a bit taken back. It is a hard topic to talk about for any girl or women that has gone through confidence issues. You wouldn’t believe it but this frugalicious mermaid was once a ugly duckling! Not that I consider myself extremely beautiful now but I def don’t have the glasses, braces or huge curly blonde hair that I did when I was 15yrs old!
