First things first, please do not make the mistake we did when we arrived at the cruise. We didn't know much what to do in each country and we had to settle for less when it came to doing the excursions in each country.





I would say, the first thing you need to do as soon as you get to the entrance of the cruise is to go to the Shore Excursion station and book ALL of your activities in advance. You can even do this from the comfort of your phone so make sure to download the app before you even board. Many of these excursions have a limited space which makes it very difficult to get to do much but there is enough to do. Since we didn't know much of what to do the first day by the end of the day we went to the shore excursion station and many of the activities we wanted to do were already booked. We were very upset but we still were able to join other activities.

In St. Marteen, we were a little spontaneous - from the very beginning, there was this specific excursion in which you were able to drive a Jeep throughout the whole island in a tour with a guide. This was something we wanted to do but since it was fully booked we decided to explore the island for ourselves. Our excursion was at around 1pm and we were out of the cruise at around 9am which was a lot of time in between for us to do something adventurous. Right outside of the cruise port there was a rental car shop where you can get a car and drive around for as long as you want for a flat fee. I believe it was not more than $100 which we thought about it and the shore excursion offered by Royal Carribean was a little bit over the price. It is a risky move because you never know what could happen.

In our way to explore the city, we only had a map which was the ONLY guide for us. However, there was only one main road which would bring you back to your destination whatsoever. Tip: We would take pictures of some related places to know when we were going back that we were going the right way.

One advice from me is DO NOT RENT SCOOTERS OR FOUR WHEELERS. We saw many accidents of tourist on the streets. People drive very bad and even the tourist would throw themselves to the cars - the least you want is your body street burnt or a concussion. You are safer in a car.



So - since the very beginning we wanted to check out the Maho Beach. We got lost and did a few rounds but we were able to make it. They have a nice little bar and shop for you to enjoy the view of the airplanes. There was one that was so low we thought it was going to hit the car lol.

Tip: Make sure you leave on time to your excursions, they will leave you behind if you do not make it on time which it almost happened to us. This is a reason why many cruise lines and excursions rather tourist to do their own excursions because they will not leave you behind. There was a lot of traffic on the way back and if we would have left just 5-10 mins late we would have lost the money for the excursion so do leave on time.



Since we didn't have much to choose from we decided to do the horse ride and to be honest it was one of the most beautiful rides I have ever had in my life. I wouldn't lie to you but I was very scared the horses would go another route or fall down the mountains but they are so well trained to which I was very surprised - the views we got from this tour was amazing and we even got into the water with the horses - they were laughing because they enjoy the water so much!



We were at ease because if you are on a tour with the shore excursion provided by Royal Caribbean they would not leave you. Our excursion ended right on time and we had enough time to get back and get on the cruise with no issues. Cruises are very punctual and they will leave you if you are not there right on time - so make sure you have the time right (on the app, it would show the cruise time and that is the one you need to guide yourself with).

I wish I would have had more time to experience in St. Marteen but with all the rush, the traffic, and the timing we weren't able to enjoy the country as much as we wanted to. But we should come back very soon!




If you do stop in St. Marteen make sure to visit the Maho Beach, also if you can make sure to get the most out of the excursions, if you can get the Jeep experience the whole day I would say DO IT! and make sure you have your time set right and always have extra time with you in the case something happens.

I am back with more blog posts, and of course, many of you are enjoying these series. In order to finalize the rest of the wedding chapters, we need to jump into the HoneyMoon trip.

For you to have the most amazing honeymoon of your dreams, you need to make sure you have the budget for it. In my case, we had to restrict ourselves from a huge wedding in order to also enjoy the rest of our wedding wishlist. This is something I will always advise when it refers to wedding budgeting and honeymoon trips. If you are like us who barely have a chance to go on vacations then make sure to plan the honeymoon of your dreams. There's no doubt it is one of the best experience you both will have together.

Like I mentioned, we barely go on vacation so it was very important to go all out. From the beginning of your wedding chapter, you need to make sure you can either do one or the other or both, even if you can do it all. I can say everything I did came out just better than expected - I truly wanted it to be by not worrying about what others thought. If you need to cut short in the wedding guest list, do so. If you need to cut short in alcohol, do so. Do not let anyone get in between, remember it is YOUR WEDDING. My point, do what makes you happy because if you can do it all at once you will have the best wedding of your dreams.

So back to the trip...My husband and I have never been on a cruise nor have been to the countries we planned on going. I checked into every single cruise line to have an idea of the prices and dates they had available. I went back and forward with other lines but since it was our very first cruise and our honeymoon - why not go all out right? 

This is when I came across Royal Caribbean and we decided to enjoy our honeymoon at their biggest and latest ship The Harmony of the Seas - 7 days/3 countries - St. Marteen, Puerto Rico, Labadee Haiti.  






One important tip from me is to leave the day right after your wedding. Our wedding was a Saturday and on Sunday noon we were already on our way to our trip! There is no point in staying just leave right away and you will thank me later - it was like we were running away from all the chaos every wedding brings.

From the beginning, I wanted a balcony but I wasn't sure if I was ready to have a balcony towards the ocean so we decided to get a balcony regardless but towards the Park Central of the cruise. You get to see what's going on in the outside and when they are playing jazz you can go outside and relax while having your breakfast.

There are so many things to do on the ship (which I will include in my other post). The customer service is one of the BEST ones I've ever received in my entire life. Also, prepare yourself to gain a few pounds from all the food you will eat or if you want to stay fit this ship includes a gym plus an outside racing track all around the ship. My husband and I would love to go all around every time we would eat in order to walk it out.



Tip #1: If you want to enjoy the pool, jacuzzi's, and slides you will have to wake up EXTRA early in order to get yourself a spot or wait until late afternoon to do so because you will have no space if you wake up later than 8AM.

Tip #2: Another advice would be to make sure to not overspend - this is something my husband did while on the ship and he regrets it deeply haha but hey sometimes you want to go all out!

Tip #3: Make sure to go to the continental breakfast, lunch, dinner - the variety of food that they have is insane - the way continental works is by being a buffet with different course meals with anything and everything you would want to eat. Also, you can take your food to your room if you don't want to eat in the restaurant.

Tip #4: Stay fit by getting the stairs - they sure get you worked up but I believe because we did this we didn't gain a pound!

I would be doing a new blog post next week with the activities we did in each country and our suggestions to what you should do if you decide to stop in these countries.

Last but not least, the decor is my final chapter for this wedding series.

I did not have a wedding planner, everything was decorated by yours truly. As I mentioned from my previous blog posts (Chapter 1 & Chapter 2), you have to know the style you want from the very beginning in order to understand what would match the aesthetic look you are going for.

RENTAL

With the help of Cache Tents from Miami, they were my rental company to everything that I needed. To be honest, they were very responsive with any inquiry I had. As well, their website was the easiest way to search through because they have photos of every item in every category. Also, they were the ONLY BEST ONES with the BEST PRICES in town! I would go back and forward with other companies and their prices were a JOKE! Cache Tents has the most reasonable prices, the quality, and service is TOP! They work with you to your needs and they are super professional.

They provided me with the linens, glasses, chairs, tables, napkins, silverware, and so much more.



FLOWERS


Up next, the flower decor from the bouquet, boutonniere, and the tables were from @flowersbyro - she is an angel and she truly exceeded my expectations. Her love for her job shows truthfully from what she does and I can tell you with my eyes closed that she is the one you should definitely work with when it comes to flower decor.



The flower wall was done by @official_miamiflowerwalls - I became one of their ambassadors while I started looking for the best flower walls in Miami and as soon as I reached out to them I brought in ideas on what I was looking for and as easy as it was they came in and set up their wall and it was just as I requested it to be. Their prices were very reasonable which is why I went with them.



For the rest of the decor, you won't believe where I got most of it - simply the Dollar Tree, Hobby Lobby, and Michael's.



Although, it was a little tedious having to go around with all the decor I was very happy I got to do this on my own with of course the help of my family.

The most important items which I was able to find in these stores were very accessible. Such as, the dollar tree was my go-to for candle holders, and they had some white baskets which I used for the party favors.

In Hobby Lobby, I was able to find the MR&MRS sign, the wedding honey fund box, and some of the flower decorations - let me tell you, they have some beautiful arrangements in which you can find any selection that you are looking for.


In Micheal's, I also found a few of the items I needed such as the wedding garter which was wayyyy cheaper than any other place I looked for them.

If you decide to do your own wedding I believe it is possible it is just very stressful and you need support from all of your family. Without support, you won't be able to do it all!

In order for you to organize and plan everything, you need to know what you want, create a list, do everything by steps, and do it with enough time.

Happy Tuesday Y'all,

I am in the means of moving this week so just guess the mess I have surrounding myself. I am so excited about new beginnings and a new chapter in my life.

Today, I will be telling you all about my dress and makeup from my wedding day.




Dress:

The very first thing you need to do in order to find your dream dress is by simply knowing the style you want. As I told you in my previous blog post, everything I visioned was through Pinterest which was the source that helped me find out the style I was looking forward to.

There are 3 important key factors when it comes to picking out your dress. These are:


1. Budget
2. Style
3. Venue




In order to pick your budget, you need to know the style range price of your dress. I knew from the very start my dress was going to be a little more than what I expected. However, I came in with a reasonable budget which every dress I was scamming through would catch my attention was over the budget I had originally set up.

Then your stylist decides to get you into the dressing room with your top choices and this is when it is up to you which dress makes you feel like a princess. I've always been into mermaid dresses when it comes to weddings but I felt like it wasn't meant to be. My point here is even if you like a style does not mean it will be the one for you so always have different styles to try on because yours is in there.

When I found the one I just knew. I felt like a doll, I literally cried when I said YES TO THE DRESS!




One important thing to know when you are going to pick your dress is knowing the venue and style you want it to look like. Since I was not going to have a church wedding, it was more of a garden/vintage style (which everything changed unexpectedly, video coming soon with my wedding story) I decided not to get a veil just because of how my style of the wedding was. However, you should have an extra budget for tailoring because it can sum up and you need to either go with the tailor from the store or find one yourself. In my case, I had to get my dress fitted and fix from the bottom since with the heels the dress was still way too long.

The twist here was I found a tailored where he helped me not only with those details but take my dress to the next level. This dress was actually strapless (I KNOW RIGHT?!) When I got the dress it had a cape which I didn't really like but it still came with it so I had to get it regardless. So after I got my dress, I had some double thoughts by looking at other dresses with sleeves and I wanted to get one with sleeves but they were way over my budget. Well, when I found my tailor he gave me the brilliant idea to turn the cape into sleeves...I WAS IN SHOCK! We did a sample of how it would look like and I decided to give it a go because I was loving the way it looked so it gave me more confidence to getting a closer style to what I was looking for. And this is how my dream dress came about. Never worry about not finding your perfect dress because a designer or tailor can provide you with your vision come to life!


Makeup:

As you can tell from the photos you might think I was crazy to do my own makeup. However, I actually didn't think this was going to be the case but after the drastic change to where I am going to tell you the story on my coming up Wedding Story, you would know why I had to do it in my case.
However, I felt very confident I was going to be able to do it since I can say I know what to do when it comes to doing my own makeup. Funny story, I couldn't even glue my fake eyelashes but thank god I have very long lashes which I didn't really need them at all and you couldn't really tell. If you feel very confident about doing your own makeup then I say go for it! This is a good tip to saving yourself some extra bucks. I feel like it was more special to me because I had much time to dedicate to myself and perfection everything I was doing. If you are looking to do your makeup with a makeup artist there are many out there with such a beautiful talent that I know would make you look like a princess. For the hair, my husband's aunt did it since she is a hairstylist and she did such an amazing job, plus also the hairpins made such a beautiful statement.





I hope this blog post helps you towards your beautiful big day. Just know that as long as you are happy with your own decisions everything will just find its own way. Have a great day and stay smiling :)

And we are married!

It has been about a month since we tied the knot and time just keeps flying. If you noticed how absent I have been around here it is due to all the madness from my wedding planning/honeymoon. I believe I haven't shared our story but a little insight we have been dating since we were in high school. If you do the math, it will be 10 years of dating this 2019.

We got engaged in June of last year, and I decided to start checking out venues and make my dream wedding come true by planning accordantly to what I have been dreaming from my Pinterest boards (LOL).

However, there have been many up and downs, happiness, sadness, everything you can think of but we have surpassed everything together and here we are FREAKING married! Like I still have gotten used to saying he's my husband but I am so blessed to call him husband.

When we decided to take our photos I knew from the very start Richard from (@richtheshooter) was going to be my guy for our wedding. I have worked with Richard for my blog photos and he knew what style I was going for. If you were to see my Pinterest account you would think I was crazy with all the ideas I had in mind.

One thing I loved about Richard during my wedding guide was how flexible and available he was to make it the best session ever.

Before our wedding, we had met up about 1 month in advanced and I showed my style, color palette, and my vision towards our big day. This helped us completely be on the same page on what I wanted our photos to look like, but of course, I never expected them to be as beautiful as they are.

I changed my mind so many times because let's be honest if you want a decent wedding you are expecting to spend more than $5,000/$10,000 - so I was in between should we just take photos and go on our honeymoon, or should we do both, or maybe a small wedding with family members? I looked everywhere to see what would match my budget because really I didn't have one but yet we didn't want to spend much.

However, your wedding photos have to be in your budget it does not matter what you are going to do. I feel like they capture the most beautiful moment with your partner when you both become one. If you are not going to have a wedding at least have a once in a lifetime professional photo with the love of your life, dress in your beautiful white gown and have the memories forever.


5 STEPS TO HAVING A GREAT PHOTO SESSION DURING YOUR WEDDING:

In order to have an amazing photo session, you need to follow the next steps:

1. You have to plan your day accordingly, but do know that regardless of it all nothing will go as you planned. However, make sure you are always an hour in advance just in case something gets in the way.
2. Have a supportive family who will help you throughout your day.
3. Make sure your photographer has assistants who will make sure you are looking your best during the sessions or have a friend/family with you.
4. Take extra makeup to your session because you will need to do a few retouches such as lipstick or eyeliner.
5. Take deodorant, perfume, and sandals - You will be sweating, mainly if it is bright and early when the sun has no mercy. As well as, having an extra pair of sandals will help you not get as tired in some of the sessions where you are not going to need the use of your heels.

These are very important factors to take into consideration when you are going to do your wedding photos. I still have so much more to share which I will during this whole week - there are 3 chapters for my wedding series blog posts so keep coming back :) Plus, I will also record a video telling you my wedding story. Have a great day and stay smiling!

As you might've seen on my stories, I’ve been experimenting with laser hair removal and have been so pleased by my personal results that I wanted to create a quick prep guide to
your very first laser hair removal session!



Prepping for Laser

Your preferred treatment center will ask you to make a few small changes prior to your session to ensure you’re getting optimal results!

- Staying out of the sun: 
Avoid sun exposure anywhere from 4-6 weeks prior to your laser session. Suntans and sunless tanning can alter the effects of laser and increase the chances of skin lightening. Wait until your tan has faded to schedule your first appointment.

- Avoid Waxing/Plucking: 
You’ll also be asked to stop any method of hair removal 3-4 weeks prior that removes the hair from the root. This will preserve the hair follicle that’ll later be treated with laser for permanent removal. Shaving is allowed, as it doesn’t disrupt the hair shaft/follicle.



- Cleanse your skin:
You want to make sure your skin is freshly shaved and free of bacteria before your appointment. though it will be cleansed once again by a professional at the medical practice, prior to starting your session.

Wear comfortable clothes: 
Wear breathable/loose fitting clothing pieces that’ll leave the treated area exposed. The laser may leave your skin slightly sensitive and you won’t want tight or abrasive clothes to further irritate it.


What to Expect

Time: The length of your laser hair removal appointment depends on the size of the area being treated. Sessions can last anywhere from just a couple of minutes to a few hours.

Pain: Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. When the laser is activated, you’ll begin to feel a prickly burning sensation, the pain is similar to that of a rubber band lightly snapping on your skin. Most places let you choose if you'd like to a topical anesthetic before they start your treatment!


Post-Laser: You may experience minor swelling, redness, or tenderness in the treated area. Scabbing and bruising are also common but should disappear within a few days. You may start notice shedding and closer to your next appointment, you may notice hair some patches of regrowth. These are all completely normal after-effects of laser treatment.


 

Body Details is my preferred location to do my laser hair removal treatments. I trust them in everything they provide and they are very professional. They have many locations in Miami which there might be one very close to you. Pick up the phone and ask for your free consultation with Body Details Specialists! You deserve it!

Isn't it insane how fast the year went by and you ask yourself, what have you really done last year that was really worth it all?

On my end, I am pretty much satisfied with everything I did. I know probably I could have done way more BUT that's why we have another year to start OVER. In order to keep trying and never giving up. Am I right?

However, there are some things you can't leave behind. Falling in love with a products or some maybe also hating them will be also a reason to NEVER use them. In my case, I have so many favorites from last year I want to use them ALL!

Time to give you an all insider of my favorite 2018 products that I will ring in for my 2019!



1. Bare Minerals

I had the opportunity to try the new Bare Minerals Blemish Powder Foundation and to be honest it is something I don't stop wearing for ANYTHING! I love to use it with the primer because it makes it sit for long hours and it helps me with nicer natural skin glow. The best thing is that this product helps me get rid off redness and irritated areas in my skin, controls the T zone, and most importantly; it is free of sulfate, paraben, and much more.



2. L'oreal Colour Richie Lipsticks

My all-time favorite lipstick to use without the hassle of it actually feeling like a lipstick. I totally can't be without a touch of their nude colour richie lipsticks. 






3. Pixi Beauty



I found out about Pixi Beauty last year and I couldn't believe they have been my go-to products. I could say I am super into blushy cheeks and a soft look. I can 100% rather have a soft look than a smoky eye and this is something I have been able to find with the products Pixi has! 

4. Biore Pore Strips


Save the trip to the facial spa because Biore has your back! Literally, whenever you are low on a budget, or you simply don't have time to make it to the spa use a Biore Charcoal Strip and you will thank me later. You will be surprised with every single blackhead coming out (I find it so satisfying - sorry not sorry)
Leaving your nose like you have no pores whatsoever will shock everyone thinking you have a spa day every single month! I find it one of my favorites due to how easy it is and it is pain-free.


5. Alba Botanica





Another product that has been a lifesaver is Alba Botanica. Their Pimple Patches help me get rid of any pimples that want to come out or that is bugging the life out of me. Every time I try them I can see how the patch helps the pimples reduce in size and they just are easier to extract if you are on the save zone. I actually found their peeling mask to do miracles. I would use it before going to sleep and you would see how your pores literally diminish in a second. 



One thing I love about all of these products is how much they have helped me improve my skincare routine and I am so happy I was able to find them last year. I do not know how life would be without them in 2019!

Hello Hello! Happy Friday! I am so excited to tell you all about my stay at Circ Hotel in Hollywood Miami.

Ever since I stayed in this hotel, I decided to include lifestyle into my blog to show you more of Miami with a sense of fashion and beauty (I will also be expanding outside of Florida and even outside of the U.S so stay tuned). This was one of the first mini staycations I have done in my city. After all, my partner and I needed a well rested day to ourselves without any job-related things to do plus we recently got engaged which made the stay even more pleasant.

As soon as we arrived we felt like home, you walk in and you can feel how spacious and clean the room is. The bathroom shower was to dream for, it had a rain shower and marble style with a nice lighting vanity with an amazing space (as well as a vanity mirror, this is a plus!). It also had two closets on each side with an amazing space and lighting as soon as you open the doors including a board with an iron.

Let's talk about the room right away - The bed was one of the comfiest I have ever been, the room has a complete layout where on the side it has a coffee area where you can prepare the Keurig coffee.
Next to this area, there was another area where you can sit down and relax while watching T.V. as a sofa to also read the magazines or catch up while sitting on your coffee! The room has incredible lighting and a beautiful art against the bed wall. I mean it when I say it was very welcoming.

The balcony was very spacious and super cozy with two chairs and a table to relax and look out to the park and the Hollywood city.

This hotel has many entertaining areas where you can enjoy without leaving the hotel. Circ Hotel includes an amazing restaurant called Olivia which specializes in Italian dishes. One of the things that surprised me the most was you can see the Chef create FRESH mozzarella and you are able to taste it right away - you will be mind blown! It was delicious. I had the filet mignon as my dinner dish and I was loving every single bite of it. We did enjoyed many dishes and appetizers that if it was for me I will tell you to try them all!

For a nice lounge night, you have the rooftop called The Muse where they have many activities going on such as saxophone play while enjoying the breeze of this location. The drinks were perfect and the vibe of this location was a night to remember.

We were not able to enjoy the pool but do not worry because we will make sure to go back to this location without a doubt!

Overall, our experience at Circ Hotel was a 10/10, this hotel has an incredible price for the stay with all the luxury around you including an amazing restaurant, a lounge to hang out, and a pool to enjoy the Miami weather. This is a MUST for anyone coming to Miami and doesn't want to deal with crazy traffic, crazy people, and crazy club parties around the hotel. This one is FOR YOU!

Best of both worlds, you are less than 10 minutes away from the beach, 20 minutes away from Brickell/Downtown/Wynwood, and 15 minutes away from Aventura Mall (one of the best mall's around this area with all the most known stores).

I hope you had a lot of fun watching my Instastories showcasing everything from the hotel from the very beginning until the end of my stay. See you soon in my next travel post!

First things first, what about we learn the colors in style for the winter season.

I love anything Pantone does for us in the fashion industry. If you go to their website you can check what are the colors of the season and you can always check in order to be on the latest. Do this every season and you will thank me later!

However, I decided to do things differently and create a board with the colors of this season and combine some styles that you can create yourself with these colors. Miami gets no cold front but when we do with just 60 degrees we are freezing. So depending on our winter weather I gathered some cool outfits by the color in order for you to see what you like best! I added some other thicker sweaters for those who get a colder weather.

You can shop any pieces in each section and get inspired by the mood board :)

Valiant Poppy 

Russet Orange

Meerkat

Red Pear

Ceylon Yellow

Martini Olive

Crocus Petal

Sargasso Sea

Hello hello! Happy Tuesday! I am very excited about this blog post - Can you believe Christmas is literally 49 days away?! Where did time go and how can it be 49 days away?!

So in order to get my shopping going and to begin the festivities of November and December Chevrolet lend me their beautiful Equinox Redline 2019 SUV model for a week!

Believe me when I say this - I might end up buying this car! I mean it!

After being engaged for a while now, my partner and I have been trying to look for SUV's for a while now and this came at the right time. My fiance is a car addict and just the fact of him appreciating the beauty of this car seems to make it more believable that he wants it NOW!

This beauty caught us by surprise because I have never seen anything like it on the road.





Many things about this car made me fall in love:

1- It was so easy to use the Push to Start - My current car doesn't have this feature and it makes it so easy to just start your car right away without a key. But it also has another amazing feature where you can turn on the engine with your own KEY - so by the time you get to your car it is already cool down and you know how hot Miami is so this is a PLUS!





2- This car had the AutoStop feature which means the car automatically will shut down without of course shutting down the car. The car does it automatically when it thinks is the time to AutoStop. I did notice when the car doesn't have the A/C on it does the feature more frequently. This is usually a way for fuel efficiency. The car will learn the way you are currently driving and if it needs to autostop it will do it when it needs it. I didn't find it annoying nor did it do it when I didn't want it to.

3- Another incredible feature that caught me by surprise was they have CarPlay which works for iPhone's and if you are an Android user do not worry this car features you to use it as well because it works for Android's :) Best of both worlds! It is called the MyLink Bluetooth. The app is very easy to use and if the car doesn't have Navigation you can use your on Map/GPS from your phone. You can use Spotify and Pandora. As well, this model includes WIFI which means if you are on a road trip and you want to download a movie into your phone you can without an issue - Christmas movies all day long!

4- Siri was very useful for when you get messages and you want to reply - Siri, in this case, helps you by reading the messages you've got and you can reply right away by telling her what to say. I was impressed by how clear and perfect it will catch my response which made it 10 times easier.

5- The space in this car is to die for. It is so spacious you have no idea. I would say for the price this car is I believe it is one of the biggest ones out there. The trunk has an amazing space and the back seats even incline a little for those longer trips.

6- One impressive side about this car was the seats - this is because I have never seen anything like it. They have this cool style of jeans and they are super comfy. It is the denim-style material which Chevrolet thought about a design where fashion meets car. It is more durable and it makes it easier to clean. They call it the Jet Black Cloth Interior for your reference. Their Steering Wheel is fully leather wrapped and it is mounted with audio and cruise control.





7- The rear camera is super clear and the alarm system makes it so much easier for everyone to park by allowing you and alerting you if you are about to hit the car or you are too close to something dangerous. Also, it has the Side Blind Zone Alert in each side mirror which I have never used before since my current car doesn't have it and this makes you feel super safe since you know you won't be missing any blind spots due to the help of this little feature. Another impressive point about their alert system is when you are backing out the car senses any danger from any of the sides by alerting you to stop since there's a car coming from any of the ways with a signal. Last but not least, it also includes Reminders such as "Look back in the rear seat" this is very helpful and the car acknowledges when you open the back door and it reminds you to look back when you are getting out of the car. As we know many people have incidents of leaving their children inside or maybe anything you put back there could be the best way for Chevrolet to remind you before getting out of your vehicle!




8- Let's talk about the style and look of this car - The black rims with this white pearl look are to die for. They included and decided to have their logo in black in this case I think it looks amazing with the style of this car instead of their gold logo. Also, can we talk about the red lines in the tires - I personally love them and it gives them a sporty look which I am so into!




9- The dashboard and the screen are a perfect size 8' Touch Screen- it isn't too big or too small, it gives you everything you need for in the screen. The buttons are super soft and they have a nice touch which makes them look sophisticated and luxurious.




10- Last but not least, let's talk about how fast this car really is - it has a 2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder 252 Horsepower All Wheel Drive. It is very quick at accelerating and very smooth while on the road. For the case of this car with how fast and big this car really is, I didn't seem to waste too much gas. However, I did drive it to small distances and a few further away and I still used the full tank for a whole week! Isn't that impressive coming from an SUV? 26 City/32 Highway.


I think I have said it all and I am completely in love with this Equinox, if you see me around with this car it is because I actually ended up buying it. I just can't let go of it and I never saw myself being able to drive such big car but with all the sensors, safety, and comfort there is no way I can't say no to this car. I always thought it was going to be impossible to park with this car but it was completely the way around everything made it so easy to feel more like you were doing the right thing. I hope you enjoyed this blog post and if you want to check any models of Chevrolet make sure to visit their local store for more information.
