Here’s a little something you might not know about me. I’m very happy being a behind-the-scenes kind of person, but I also love to plan parties. That’s why I was pretty excited and nervous at the same time when Latina Bloggers Connect asked me to host one of their Jergens Crema Live parties. Read more
Lucky FABB has come and gone. Just like that. It was a whirlwind of fashion and beauty blogging at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. I’m not going to lie, I was a little intimidated attending this conference. Yeah, I attend blogging conferences all of the time, but this was one where I knew everyone was going to look amazing!

For the past six years I didn’t let a drop of hair dye touch my luscious locks. I was afraid of “damaging” my hair and the thought of touching up my roots every so often annoyed me. That was until this past weekend when I welcomed Clairol Natural Instincts into my hair life. Things have changed people. Read more
When my friend Yolanda of Sassy Mama in L.A. invited me to get a free manicure I didn’t hesitate to reply YES! Then I found out it would be courtesy of CVS and NUANCE Salma Hayek. I was really in! Did you even know that the gorgeous actress Salma Hayek had a beauty line at CVS? She sure does and you’ll find cosmetics, skin care, hair care, and body products. Read more
Hello my loves! I hope you’re having an amazing week! I wanted to share a few pictures of the Mary Kay Beauty Bar we had at the Top Latina Blogger conference in Washington D.C. We were allowed to try on any lip liner, lipstick, and lip gloss we wanted and in any color! It was like “Hi, what can I get you today?” Lip gloss please! LOL!
I’m really impressed with their products! Especially, the Mary Kay® Creme Lipstick in Sunny Citrus. It’s my favorite right now. If you’re a Mary Kay fan, then you know what I’m talking about. Make sure you also check out their new Botanical Effects™ Skin Care line. Everyone loved their NouriShine Plus™ Lip Gloss in Mango Tango too! If you don’t know what I’m talking about…find a Mary Kay beauty consultant in your area today!
Who’s going to watch the Golden Globes on Sunday? We are now officially in award season and that means lots of gifting suites. I was invited to the L’Oreal Paris beauty suite inside the HBO Luxury Lounge at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. It was a day of pampering, which I really needed. And I got to hang out with my friend Lisann, who’s in town for the weekend.
L’Oreal Paris is celebrating 40 years of beauty, so it only seemed fit that the room was designed with gold touches everywhere! My makeup was done by celebrity makeup artist April. She gave me some helpful tips while using some of L’Oreal’s hottest products. Connie gave me one of the best manicures I’ve had in a long time…Thank goodness! This is my first time trying out their nail polish, and so far so good with their new line Colour Riche. Then the funny and talented Romero styled my hair. He had us cracking up! He gave me a very Bridget Bardot-inspired hair style.
This weekend celebrities will be get all primped and pampered courtesy of L’Oreal Paris, just like me for Sunday’s award show. I can’t wait to see the red carpet and what my favorite actresses are wearing and how they’re styled.

Where are all my Victoria’s Secret Beauty fans? Are you in love with Secret Garden too? The smells are intoxicating… aren’t they?
Did you know your favorite fragrances of Secret Garden have been reinvented. It’s now VS Fantasies and they’ve even added five new scents.
I was lucky enough to be invited to an intimate dinner at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood with Victoria’s Secret Angel Candace Swanepoel. Now, I didn’t know how intimate this dinner was going to be and I had never been to the legendary hotel. I had no idea what to expect.
As you can see in the pics below, it was very intimate. I met great people, had insightful conversation, and ate delicious food. I ate creme brulee for the first time!
I did get the Sheer love collection and I can honestly tell you it smells sweet and sexy, without being too overbearing. I have a sensitive nose when it comes to fragrances and this is delish! I’m dying over over the body butter!! Stay tuned…I have the entire collection you’ll be able to win soon!
And as for my dress, I bought it from my friend Crystal Rene at Haute CurVture. It was comfy and long! Just the way I like my maxi dresses. xoxo

I really do hate missing out on a beauty event. But, you all know I’ve been sick. I was so heart broken to miss the Bubbles & Bites party over at Benefit Cosmetic’s Santa Monica location.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the ultra-exclusive swag bag. It was filled with some of Benefit’s newest products, including their oh so popular BADgal Lash Ultra Mascara! I can’t wait to use it. I hear nothing but great things about Benefit.
Gilt City, is the newest site from Gilt that offers you the biggest deals in your city. Get going! Start shopping Gilt City while sipping on a HARMONIE Blush cocktail (only if you’re 21+ over of course). They are yummy! I’ve had one before.
Disclosure: I didn’t attend this event, but I was gifted a complimentary gift bag. The above is my true and honest opinion.
Ever since I got back from NYC, I really haven’t been feeling too well. So, in order to try and feel normal, I attended an event on Sunday.
We got mini-makeovers. As you can see, I did get my make up done (smokey eye) and you know they have that amazing braid bar at the salon. I just wanted something loose and romantic. I loved it! I wore this green rayon dress I bought at Target, a skinny gold belt from New York and Company, jewelry from Avenue and nude peep toe sling backs by Jessica Simpson. And if you’re wondering, that’s an amazing coral Cacique plunge bra under that dress! LOL!! Is that FYI?
I did get to hang out with my girlies Marie from
