We Need a Revolution

Those low points in life – they’re forever causing stress, heartache, maybe even slight depression. And no matter how hard you try to overcome your obstacle, you find yourself worse than before.

That’s okay. 

You’re allowed to feel down. Allowed to feel like there’s no hope. You should always permit yourself the time to feel. Even when the feelings aren’t great. You’re human, and you’re meant to handle rough roads. How else are you suppose to grow? Get stronger? Find YOU?

Give yourself the green-light to get lost for a bit. Once you find the path in that dark, dim world that is your thoughts, the directions to yourself will follow.

Top: Old Navy.

Off-the-shoulder is definitely one of my favorite trends this season. It’s literally all over the runaways and street style blogs. There’s just something inevitably delicate about exposed shoulders – it’s dreamy.

I’ve been dying to get my hands on a perfect off-the-shoulder top to style endlessly this spring/summer season. I found this one at my job for less than 20 bucks! I love how dainty white can be & with the added ruffle, it has the ultimate boho vibe.

Necklace: DeadGypsy & Co. ; Earrings: Thrifted ; Headscarf: Local Store.

Denim: Target.

To style this top, I decided to pair it with boyfriend jeans. I honestly love being able to flaunt feminine vibes with loose fitting clothing. There’s just something so powerful about being able to feel beautiful in non-fitting clothing. Am I the only one who feels that way?

Wedges: Steve Madden

I wore my Steve Madden wedges to give my outfit a more clean feel. With all of the bagginess going on, the contrast from the shoes is what ties the look together. I added casual accessories to keep my outfit brunch date appropriate – beaded jewelry is always my go to! I simply love how sassy jewelry can make you feel: it’s the world of sassy self expression! Headscarves have been really fun to incorporate into my outfits, too. I need to pick up a few more and start playing around with different designs. This headscarf game is real. 

How would you style this off-the-shoulder top? Let me know in the comment section down below!

I have been wanting to style my boyfriend jeans in a blogpost for the longest and since June is denim month over on my blog, I couldn’t help but go for it!

There’s No Place Like Home || PBR x Vans Collaboration

Happy Friday:

JUST A WARNING: today’s outfit is super casual. I’m talking jeans, tee & sneakers type of casual.

It’s been a while since I’ve rocked an ensemble like this. Every time I wear this combo, the feelings of nostalgia always hit me; it was my outfit choice everyday in Middle School. Those were the good ol’ days, not worrying about what you wore or how dirty you got.

This entire outfit is styled around my Vans. I’ve had them for about a month, and it honestly hurts to say that I’ve only worn these once. These Vans were won, through an Instagram giveaway, by my boyfriend. TIP: Enter those Instagram giveaways. You never know. TIP FOR GC: Follow your own advice.

On the 4th of July, Pabst Blue Ribbon was giving away 239 pairs of Vans to celebrate the birth of America. Darien entered the contest, won and was awesome enough to get them in my size.

In styling them, I decided to work my way up and picked out my bottoms next – I went with my AE cropped jeggings. The rips are perfect and I love how the ‘crop’ hits me above my ankles. It’s the perfect way to flaunt your shoe. I normally roll up my denim, but the convenience of the ‘crop’ makes me seriously obsessed with this pair.

For my top, I went with my Dorothy Tee from Supreme. I don’t wear this tee often, but it’ll always be a favorite. It carries a lot of sentimental value for me – which involves both my love for theater & the shenanigans Darien and I have gone through waiting in line for the Supreme drops.

I wanted to add a bit of color to my outfit, but didn’t want to wear any red. I decided to go with a different shade instead, and went with my magenta, fringe bag from Urban. It adds the perfect amount of bohemian spice, which is something I love to add into all of my outfits.

pic 3.5

Be on the lookout: Darien & I are planning on doing a couples OOTD on my youtube channel soon styling these Vans. We’ve been talking about it for some time and I’m super excited!

I hope y’all are having an amazing week; cheers to the weekend!

The Mom Fairy Who?

Happy Monday:

It’s finally time for me to properly introduce myself –

20140316-DSC02087The name’s Glendaly Corona & I am the Mom Fairy. [For those of you who don’t know, La Mama Hada is The Mom Fairy in Spanish.]

I’m currently 22 years old, a stay-at-home mom, student & fashion lover. 22 year old mom?! You read that correctly. I am a proud mother to a beautiful 10-month old baby girl. I never imagined myself as a young mom, but I am one of those people who believe that things happen for a reason.

The thought of becoming a young mom scared me beyond belief – all of the bad connotations that come along with that title is daunting. However, I can honestly say that becoming a young momma helped me get my life together. My life made complete sense the moment I held baby Kaelynn in my arms in the delivery room.

DSC02907

It amazes me everyday seeing & experiencing all of the good changes that has happened in my life since becoming a young momma. I’ve finally, and I am going to ‘yell’ this: FINALLY FOUND MYSELF. FOUND SELF LOVE. & IT FEELS GREAT. I was lost & confused before I got pregnant. I didn’t have any drive, any dedication or commitment to almost every aspect of my life. But my daughter changed that. She gave me all of the commitment & dedication I needed to become successful in every aspect of my life. I know people’s level of success varies, but being in my life situation as it is – I feel beyond successful. MY POINT: Don’t ever let society bring you down for being a young mom. Take the challenge, embrace it & own it.

I am currently living in Brooklyn, NY; & am a proud native. There’s no place like New York City, but there are so many places that don’t get highlighted like the famous Time Square, or Dumbo.

I grew up in the projects in East New York, where gang violence happens on the regular, you find piss all over the elevator floor & the stench of drugs seeps through your windows & doors. It wasn’t the best living conditions, but I managed to survive and found my way into Bushwick; which is no longer Bushwick, thanks to gentrification.

At the moment, I’m kind of stuck on where to go next. SO here’s a list of random facts about me:

My mother is Puerto Rican & my father is Mexican.
Tacos are my favorite food.
I am a Theatre Major at my Uni & only have a year left.
I am not religious.
However, I am very spiritual. I am one with the stars.
Black is my favorite color. Green comes after.
May 13th is my birthday.
My 1st birthday was Friday the 13th. When I found this out, I swore my life made complete sense to me.

I’m not sure what else to say – I really do suck at talking about myself. If you have any questions, please, feel free to ask! I don’t bite.

Thank you for taking your time & checking out my blog, I will forever be grateful.

Stay smiling.

pic2Happy Hump Day!

Just to make things clear, I haven’t yet figured out a schedule for my posts. I’m thinking 3 days a week: Monday, Wednesday & Friday.
This is how it’s gon’ be broken down:

Monday: Written post.
Wednesday: Outfit/Photography post.
Friday: Video post.

I’m super stoked to use this blog as a form of expression. I honestly feel like this time, my blog WILL grow with me. I can’t wait to embark on this adventure & hope to make tons of new friends along the way.

I was speaking to Darien [my boo thang] about planning & figuring out where I should take this blog & he recommended that I should have a variety of photos, writings & videos.

I’d love to write more, both for my blog & in my free time. I have a few reasons why: Mainly, I NEED to write more. I use to love writing in high school. It was one of my favorite things to do during my free time. But as I got older, I don’t know what happened, but, my interest just disappeared. Reading & writing is one of the most magical forms of expression, I think. These two things can keep your imagination soaring – that’s amazing. I’d also love to share my experiences as a young momma in this blog. It’d be great to even have discussions about momma life with y’all! If you have any suggestions on what I should write for any future posts, please, let me know.

Fashion is my niche. Hump Day = Best day of the week. It just works.

I will forever love Youtube. I’ve thought about quitting but the love between us is too strong. So expect videos from me. Mostly fashion videos, but don’t worry, there will be some variety in content.

I don’t want this intro to be super long so I’m going to end it here. I promise, next written post is GOING TO BE a proper INTRODUCTION; all about who I am and why I’m here, posting. Stay tuned.

Back to the outfit:

To be honest, there were 2 other outfit posts that were suppose to go up today, but with the circumstances that is called my life, I had to work around distractions.

There were a few things Darien & I had to get done on Sunday, so I had to rush, quickly put an outfit together, and head out. My completed look:

pic3

Don’t mind the fact that it’s the ending of June & I’m fully covered. It was pretty chilly in the a.m. due to the rain.

My main tip for this look: black is always the new black. TIP: When in doubt, black it out. No one can ever go wrong with wearing black. I don’t own a black t-shirt [I desperately need to change that], so I decided to add a bit of color with this burgundy/red boyfriend tee. Boyfriend tee’s are my favorite, they just fall in the right places. It was chilly, as I stated earlier, so I covered up with my knit cardi from Brandy Melville.** TIP: When wearing the same color, spice things up with some texture.

I’m so happy that I’ve managed to loose enough weight to pick up a few pair of jeans – these black high waisted skinnies from AE were such a great pick up. I’ve already worn the hell out of them! They match everything, fit me nicely, & are high waisted so food babies can easily be covered.

Shoes & Bag**: I’ve had both of these pieces for over 2 years now, and they are both two of my favorite pieces to rock. Remember my last post? I still stand by fringe being equivalent to my life. The shoes: it’s been a while since I’ve rocked these, but wearing them reminded me of why I loved them so much. Expect to see these again this summer.

pic4For jewelry I kept it super simple with one necklace. I’m wearing the Onyx necklace from my Etsy shop. I’ve been wearing it a lot lately – it’s my current favorite go-to-piece.

This was a super simple, quick look, but is an outfit that really reflects who I am. There’s nothing wrong with being simple sometimes. It’s actually pretty refreshing.

TIP: Sit back, relax & enjoy the simple things.

NEW BLOGGER ALERT: Well, I’m not super new. I’ve had a few blogs before this one. Typical, right? It’s always fun thinking up & physically starting a new bog, but the challenge definitely lies in the consistency of posting & engaging.

I’d like to take a moment, right now, to thank the Universe for all of the life events I have experienced thus far: I’m convinced the Universe has been teaching me the ways of success the past few years. & I’m here today to say “Universe, thank you for all of your lessons. I’m ready to leave my mark.” I haven’t properly introduce myself on this blog, so don’t mind the story above this. We’re about to get into the real point of this post.

I know this outfit post may seem a bit irrelevant, but I’ll be honest, I really liked the outfit I wore on Father’s Day. I loved my outfit, actually. For many reasons: I felt beautiful. I felt fierce. I felt like I could take over the world, given the opportunity. This is how I love to feel when walking the concrete jungles of NYC.

The base of this outfit is definitely the Romper. I love this thing – mainly because I only spent 5 bucks on it at the thrift store. TIP: Thrift stores are bomb. Want pieces no one else has? Shop there. I’m convinced after wearing this piece that having a romper, at least one, is a necessity in every girls closet. It’s the perfect piece to just throw on & style according to your mood. I can see myself styling this one piece in many different ways. That’s, in my book, an essential in my closet. I didn’t take any photos of just the romper, but just so y’all know, it’s pretty short & has spaghetti straps, so there’s a lot of skin showing.

Even though I am a momma to a beautiful 10 month old baby girl, I believe that there’s nothing wrong with showing SOME skin. Key word, some. TIP: TOP or BOTTOM? If I want to show lots of leg, I always cover up on top. & vice versa. I happen to love my legs, so I show them off, a lot. Covering up on top is usually the way I go, but the choice, my friend, is yours. I decided to cover up with my floral kimono.

I know it might seem scary mixing prints, but it’s literally one of my favorite things to do with fashion. The key? Finding a common color. TIP: Mixing prints is super easy, just make sure that all of the prints you are using has a common color. This tip is my favorite fashion tip I’ve ever learned. You’re welcome.

Another essential in your closet: comfortable, cute black booties. I know this is a given, but if you DO NOT own a pair of black, ankle booties, do yourself a favor & buy a pair. You’re life will change forever, I promise. Black literally matches with everything, the small, thick heel makes walking easy, and your outfit will instantly become more dressier. Can’t forget that if you happen to have really nice legs, your calves will thank you. TIP: Treat yo self. In more ways than one.

Statement Bag: this is definitely another essential. I’m not saying that you need to buy this specific bag, but INVEST in a bag that represents your style completely. Bags are a tad bit on the pricier side. But with this fashion piece, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with investing your money. TIP: QUALITY > QUANTITY. This bag is going to be the perfect summer bag for me because fringe is equivalent to what my life represent.

I apologize for the lack of jewelry photos on this post. I’m slowly, but surely, embracing my love for jewelry. I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with these types of accessories; I never found pieces that ‘fit’ me. It makes sense why I started making my own jewelry.

Earrings are my latest obsession jewelry wise. I love wearing them only in my left ear. I usually like to wear a pair of earrings, sometimes one depending on my mood, in that ear. It’s my thing. Don’t ask.
