Perfect Lingerie: from Bedroom to a Girls' Night Out

This post is sponsored by b.tempt'd, but opinions are my own :)
If you follow me on Instagram you know that I am showcasing more roles in my life than just a blogger and influencer. I am also an entrepreneur, a self-made woman and hopefully an inspiring voice.
I believe that women shouldn't just show their pretty faces and impeccable taste, but celebrate and showcase how smart, sexy and confident they are. We live in a great age for women and I support female empowerment all the way. I am glad that my advertising partners celebrate it as well. Today's blog sponsor is the lovely b.tempt'd, which is a versatile, youthful and original line of lingerie products. It looks a-ma-zing! And feels even better! Soft, incredibly comfy and sexy textures with lots of lace and colors. It is the brand for young established women who love their bodies and treat them accordingly. Most importantly, some pieces can be worn as a layering piece or a stand alone garment for a night out, like my incredibly cute b.charming bandeau that I styled in a playful summer look pairing it with a cute mini skater skirt and a denim jacket :) I love that it's is thin and soft (feels like you have no clothes on!), but yet it's so supportive and cute!  Another bra that you'll see in the shoot is the grey b.charming front close t-shirt bra - it's obviously very supportive, plus there are no annoying hooks in the back - just a pretty lace texture all along! I just want to show more details of that bra every time I wear it.
And their panties! Don't even get me started! So soft and soooo beautiful! I am a lace underwear kind of girl, so b.tempt'd lace kiss bikini and b.enticing boyshorts are the winners for me! They both are such different styles, but yet the same feeling of comfort and pleasure! Love every single piece! 
I am sure b.tempt'd will be in every girl's lingerie wardrobe in no time. And by the way, if you are a male follower, you know what to get to your lady as a gift! You are welcome ;)

The Ultimate Margarita Recipe

The content is intended for adults of the ages 21+
I am not a big drinker, but when it comes to hosting a girls get-together in the summer time - Margarita is my favorite cocktail of choice. Whether it's frozen or on the rocks, from delicious variants like strawberry to chipotle and more... It's actually the #1 cocktail in the US, with 70% of them made from scratch at home...who knew? :) Today I am going to share with you the one secret ingredient that turns ordinary margarita into a an extraordinary one - Agavero Orange. It's a tequila based liquor (delicious on its own too!) that is the perfect addition to any margarita recipe. It's Gran Centenario tequila's perfect match, and it's your dance partner, party pleaser and top-secret ingredient ;)
My ultimate margarita recipe is ironically very simple. I am not a big cook, neither I am a great mixologist. I prefer to eat simply and mix accordingly. Here is my ultimate recipe for the simplest and delicious margarita:
- 1 part  Gran Centenario Tequila
- 1 part Agavero Orange Liqueur
- 1 part lime juice
Shake and pour over ice! Serve with salty rim and enjoy ;)
And what are your favorite margarita flavors?

Back to Athleisure

Athleisure style is huge trend these days and I couldn't be happier. What can be better than the look you can take from gym to brunch to strolling around town. I love this look that I created with latest collection. Their site is amazing for finding great limited deals and discounts. The items are super adorable (as you can see), shipping is easy, and the selection is always changing. The top that I am wearing here has the cutest print I have seen, and the leggings are a classic staple piece. You can use code Diane724 for $5 OFF on orders over $50 at

Wipe the night away with these affordable products

I don't change up my beauty routine too much, because if I find products that work, it's hard to convince me that there is something better out there. But every once in a while I explore new products out of necessity, like having to stay overnight at a friend's house because it's too long of a drive back home (LA problems!). On one of those nights I was forced to go to a local Walmart and find myself a whole new beauty routine at an affordable price as I only needed it for one night originally. After exploring countless options, I got myself 4 products that are now my favorites long after I needed them for one time use. Not only they are effective, they are also extremely affordable and they all smell delicious! Here are 4 top products that I hand picked from the shelves of Walmart:
1) For the glowing skin, I recommend to exfoliate 3x a week with St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub - love the smell and the texture!
2) Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes are a skin savior wherever the day takes you, they are easy to use and super effective!
3) Start the day fresh with Noxzema Classic Clean Original Deep Cleansing Cream - love the eucalyptus smell!
4) For night time moisturizing I recommend PONDS Dry Skin Cream to lock in moisture for those who suffer from occasional dry skin.
All of these products are available at your local Walmart with great saving deals. SHOP HERE!
