A semi personal lifestyle blog about modest style, extreme beauty, crazy tales of motherhood and the champagne life on a budget.


My name is Yanira Garza. I am a Chicago native, a wife and a mother to a part time racer girl / part time ballerina and full-time toddler trouble, Analiese.  I have a BFA in Fashion Design and Merchandise Management. I have worked in luxury showroom sales and retail management. I have also been a make up artist for 10 years and recently ended my work as an editorial stylist which was at one point my dream job. I've worked with top models from Elite, Ford and BMG, actor Freddie Rodriguez, Chicago Magazine, The Palmer House Hilton, Ulta, InStyle Magazine, Latino Fashion Week, Latina Magazine, Decisive Latino, Univision and many more as a stylist, writer and even a spokesperson. I have been represented by Agency Galatea and was the Latina Spokesperson and Fashion Expert for Old Navy doing speaking engagements for Univision, Telemundo, CNN and many more. I've been featured in Latina magazine as a Latina blogger to watch for, so watch me. I am fluent in Spanish. I currently write for several media outlets on beauty, style and being a mom.

My style in 3 words: Classic, chic & comfortable
My muse: Sienna Miller and the Olsen twins. 
Dying to own: A second home somewhere in Europe or Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Cannot live without: Lipgloss.
Soundtrack to your life: Anything fun from Samantha James to Empire of the Sun but tomorrow it might be Billie Holiday, Coldplay or the Spanish rock band Mana.
