Fight the Frizz in 5 Simple Steps (Video)

Oh frizzy hair…what did I ever do to deserve you? It’s not that I don’t love your natural quirkiness, but sometimes a girl wants sleek and shiny hair. It’s true…I do!

For Him: Parker & Pine Review / Giveaway

Is there a science when it comes to men’s underwear? I’ve never really given it much thought. Whenever I go shopping for my hubby, I just grab the ones that look the most comfortable. Usually they’re cotton, tagless, and in the shape of a boxer brief. That’s about it. I’ve especially never given any thought to men’s big and tall underwear. That is until now—and I can thank Parker & Pine for that. Read more

But, instead listen to their heart and thrive in their own personal style. I’d like to think I’m one of those women. Someone who doesn’t let fashion dictate who they are, but rather just let’s it inspire them.  Read more

Love is in the Air

A few months ago, when I attended the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Super Saturday event, I was really happy to see that Rachel Pally was there supporting the cause. I was even more excited when I saw that she was selling pieces from her White Label Collection—Rachel Pally plus size line. I was immediately drawn to this dress. I thought, “this would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.” And I was right, this dress was perfect for my sister-in-laws beach-themed wedding.  Read more

Life Changer (OOTD)

Have you ever had one of those days you were unsure of? One where you didn’t know how it was going to end. You hope for a just a good day, but by the time you lay down to go to sleep you realize it was life altering. That was the kind of day I had yesterday. It all started with a Latina Brunch at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) Annual Conference. I was invited as a Toyota Latino Ambassador. The brunch, which included Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, was beyond inspiring, motivating, and all of the above. Read more

My Favorite 90′s Fashion Trends

Are you ready? Let’s go back to the 90′s. I just realized that was ummmmm…over 20 years ago. I’m proud to say I was killing it back then with my style! Thanks to my mom of course.

Well, just like all trends, they tend to circle back and this seems to be the style of the moment. Read more

Men We Love: Prince Fielder

Anyone who knows me, through and through, knows how much I love professional sports. There’s nothing I like more than the competition, camaraderie, an athlete’s performance, and mental discipline of sports. I will admit that I am not a subscriber of ESPN Magazine, although I should be. They just released The Body Issue, which features 22 athletes posing nude. Quite the eye-catcher already, but even more so for me because baseball player Prince Fielder is on one of the six body-loving covers. Read more
