I have always been a fan of actress Drew Barrymore. Maybe it’s her free spirit…or the fact that’s she’s a great actress.

My Nightly Beauty Routine

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with PONDS® and Latina Bloggers Connect.

When I was younger, I was that girl who always fell asleep with her makeup on…always. As I got older, I learned about how important it is to take off that makeup before heading to bed. Today, I not only take off my makeup, but I have a nightly beauty routine before I get those much needed zzzzzzzz’s. I not only sleep better, but I wake up with more radiant and refreshed skin. Pond’s sent me a few products to add my already existing routine and they fit in quite nicely! Read more

My big ol’ paws (courtesy of my dad and I wouldn’t have it any other way) are not happy when dealing with chilly weather. I can happily say goodbye to the torture because I’ve discovered Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream and took their 7-day challenge. Read more
