An Afternoon with Maurices

When I first started this blog in 2008, I remember searching online for plus size brands to feature or shop from. That’s when I found Maurices, a fashion retailer specializing in women’s fashion in a range of sizes. Back then, they had a very small plus size collection. Today, they offer so many more options, including activewear and swimwear. They recently invited me to attend a spring event they were hosting in Downtown L.A., of course I had to go! Read more

Love, Lust, and Simply Be


A few month’s ago, I found this really fun Jonathan Adler pouch. The minute I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I bought it and then I kind of forgot all about it. It basically got lost in the abyss that is my room. Then, as if it was meant to be, it turned up—a week before Valentine’s Day. I knew I had to take it out to play before the official day of love.

Sparkling Latin Grammy Style

I consider myself a denim kind of lady—wearing it all of the time. Truth is, I don’t wear dresses very often. But, when L’Oreal Paris invited me to attend the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas, I made sure to find one that added some much needed sparkle. I had a few outfits ideas in mind for the biggest night in Latin music. It was this look that made the cut!

A Night with Katy Perry

There’s just something about Katy Perry’s songs. They’re so catchy. You hear them once and they’re just stuck in your head all day. “I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar…” Yeah, that was me days after CoverGirl invited me to attend her Los Angeles concert. And to make the night cooler, I even got the chance to meet her! Read more

Maya, COVERGIRL, and the VMA’s / Video

When COVERGIRL invites you to get pampered and attend the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA’s), but you can’t go—you don’t let an opportunity like that pass by! That’s why I asked my beautiful, funny, and adorable friend Maya if she wanted to go for me. And she said yes! Read more

COVERGIRL MTV VMA’s Pre-Party w/ Becky G and Jessie J

COVERGIRL knows how to throw a party. Last night, they kicked off the MTV Video Music Awards with a pre-party featuring performances by Becky G and Jessie J. Yes, they are not only “Easy, Breezy, and Beautiful,” but they’re both extremely amazing performers. Total girl power! Watch the video I took of them both performing at the end of this post, which includes a cover of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and “Bang Bang!” Read more

Rocking Latino Fashion Week with the Tu Vida App

Disclosure: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and the TuVida App.

When it comes to Latinos in fashion, you can’t help but think of designers like Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, or even Isabel Toledo. They may be the biggest names in fashion today, but do you ever think about how they got their start? This is why I love events like Latino Fashion Week (LFW). They are created to introduce us to emerging and talented Latino designers. Fresh off their Dallas show, LFW came to Los Angeles! I was invited on behalf of the new Tu Vida app, to check out and share my experience. Read more
