Summer Moments to Remember

This post is in collaboration with JCPenney. What can I say about summer that you aren’t already thinking? You basically love it and never want it to end right? It’s like this season was created for special moments with the people you care most about. I’ll admit I used to be more of a winter kind of girl, but this summer has been one to remember. I don’t want it end either, because of days like this one. Just so you know, my mama is pretty much my everything. We are a lot alike and we love to spend time…

Los Angeles | Win a Ticket to Curvy Cocktails!

Look out Los Angeles! Here’s your chance to enter to win a ticket to Curvy Cocktails. Kristine Thompson, the blogger behind TrendyCurvy.com, created this social event to bring together bloggers, brands, models, influencers, and curvy fashionistas to one location to celebrate all things plus size. Unfortunately, I will be out of town and won’t be able to attend. Bummer! So, I asked Kristine if I could give a ticket away—and she said yes! Rocking their…

Living a Bold Life—My Way

Sponsored by J.M. Smucker company. If you would’ve asked me five years ago if I was living a bold life, I’m not sure I would’ve been able to answer you truthfully. Maybe because I wasn’t. I had just been diagnosed with anxiety and fear ruled my life. There were no courageous moments and I definitely wasn’t taking any daring chances. It was a dark time and one I’m not ashamed to talk about. Over the…

Travel Diary | Discovering Mission San Diego de Alcalá

“Less doh…less doh,” I would yell as soon as I heard the keys jingle. My dad tells me as soon as I could walk and talk, I was always trying to leave. I can’t blame me. This curious toddler wanted to see what was beyond her parents arms. I’m not much different today. I can’t imagine a life without being able to travel and discover new places. In my latest travel adventure, I take you in and around…

Everything Happens for a Reason

You’ve heard this saying before right? Everything happens for a reason. And because we’ve heard it said over and over so many times, we might dismiss the meaning behind it. Well, I’ve been a true believer in this since I can remember. Yes, even the bad stuff. I feel that in my life, nothing has ever been accidental. As I’m sitting here typing this, I’m in the middle of brainstorming an idea. One that I’ve…

Beauty Buzz | Angel Shave Club Review

I’ll never forget being a teen and begging my mom to let me shave my legs. Little did I know all that came along with it. Like the constant and expensive upkeep for someone hairy like me. If you buy razors on the regular, you know how pricey they are. I’ve seen razor blade refills for as much as $20 for a refill box of four. That’s kind of ridiculous. I don’t know about you,…

Faux Real | Vegan Handbags

Accessories hold a special place in my heart. They can do so much for an outfit, without taking over. I appreciate that. One of my favorite accessories are handbags of course. I’m a sucker for a cross-body bag any day of the week. For the past few months, I’ve decided to cut leather/animal skin handbags out of my closet and my life. This is where vegan handbags come in. Don’t get me wrong, I still…

Travel Diary | A Drive Along the Coast with Kia

I’m always looking for a reason to explore one of my favorite cities in the entire world—San Francisco. I’ve been there a handful of times and always leave feeling like I still have more to explore. This time Kia invited me out to test drive the refreshed 2017 Kia Forte. And this trip, as you’ll see in my photos below, sent me along the San Francisco coast. We drove through the most picturesque places I…

Underwear Any Woman Could Feel Comfortable In | TomboyX (Closed)

True story. Growing up, my mom made me wear pink and enrolled me in ballet, baton twirling, cheerleading, and tap dancing. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those, but I was not about that life. I wanted to play soccer and baseball like my little brother. It wasn’t until I was in high school, when I finally convinced her to let me play softball, volleyball, and soccer. Bless her soul, but she couldn’t…

My Philly Crush Continues| Part II

My crush with the city of Philadelphia continues. If you didn’t get a chance to read part I of how it all started, make sure you do that here. In this post, I’m going to share what the rest of my trip looked like for this L.A. lady. There are over 20 photos and I’m not sorry about that. There would’ve been more, but I’m sparing your eyes of my Philly obsession. In my opinion,…

Anna Scholz | New York State of Mind Collection

If you’re an Anna Scholz fan, you know she’s all about her bold patterns and bright colors. That’s what I love most about her. She’s not afraid to dress the plus size woman in what is normally seen as taboo for our curves. Her latest capsule collection, New York State of Mind, is a perfect example of that. The collection launched yesterday and I am all about it. As you’ll see below, she used “The Big…

Cruelty-Free Beauty | 5 Summer Favorites

Whenever I describe what I do as a blogger, I always mention that I like to review beauty products. And in no way shape or form, am I a “beauty guru.” This means I’m not a professional in the industry nor do I pretend to be one. I feel like I started pretty late in life when it comes to hoarding and spending all of my money on beauty products. Sometimes, I love what I…

Philly, I Might Have A Crush on You | Part I

I’m sitting her thinking about all of the reasons that I love to travel. Believe me, when I tell you that the list is really long. But, what I appreciate more than anything, is when my perception of a place I’ve never visited before, is totally crushed. Thank you Visit Philly for introducing me to the “City of Brotherly Love.” I’ve always been a fan of the east coast. I may be a sucker for…
