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
Update: L’Oreal Paris has given me a few more products to add to the giveaway. So, now there will be two winners. Read about them below!
It’s just hot out you guys. Like over the top hot this summer and it’s only mid July. The sun is blaring and our skin is burning. Mine kind of feels like it’s melting.

So, I reached out to my friends at L’Oreal Paris for an impromptu giveaway. Read more
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
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. I think what I loved the most about 90s fashion trends were the floral baby doll dresses and Dr. Martens boots. Yes, I went there. Well, just like all trends, they tend to circle back and this seems to be the style of the moment. Read more

There are perks to this blogger life. Like meeting amazing people, who turn into awesome friends. It doesn’t happen all of the time, but when it does—it’s golden.

I’ll be the first person to admit I’m not a fan of the intense heat. But, I do love summer in Los Angeles, it’s not too unbearable (like other cities). Now, if it could stay 75 degrees the entire season—I’d be a happy Angeleno (we know it won’t). And since it seems like I’m always on-the-go lately, I have to make sure this chick stays cool and refreshed while I hit the streets. That means a bag of necessities and these summer tips (courtesy of Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee) that will beat the heat. Read more
Where are road warriors at? Who loves a good summer road trip? I just got back from one myself. Made a trip from Los Angeles to Phoenix. It was so much fun! If you’re planning your own road trip this summer, you just might want to pick up the August 2014 issue of Latina Magazine. Flip on through to their “Traditions through Travel” feature where I share my own road trip tips on behalf of Toyota! Read more
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
I’ve never considered myself a delicate person when it comes to my skin, but the summer is starting to show it’s power. We’re only a few weeks in and I’m already dealing with a heat rash and ingrown hairs. What the what? I know it’s not only annoying, but sometimes it can be painful. When it comes to these summer skin problems, I know I’m not alone. Read more
Sometimes…because it’s life…you get thrown into a funk. You don’t know where to go, where you’re headed, and how to jump back into it. And because it’s “life,” you just take it. I know, because I’ve been in a “blah” kind of mood lately. Read more

It’s time to add another summer shoe trend to the list. This time it’s the traditional Mexican sandal—the huarache (pronounced wah-rah-che). Now, let me tell you my experience with these sandals. As a kid, we would often take trips across the border into Tijuana and down to Rosarito Beach. Read more
This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Crest and Latina Bloggers Connect.
To say I come from a family of sports fans would be a little bit of an understatement. You know I love my sports, but as a family we’re a little passionate. And now that the world’s largest soccer event is back, it’s kind of taken over our lives. No matter who we cheer for, sports always bring us together. Read more
