Hispanicize 2017 | Community and More

In the 9 years that I’ve been a blogger and social media influencer, there is one thing that remains constant in this space—and that is community. More than anything, I am grateful for people who not only “get” what I do, but also have the same passion for it. They offer support unlike any other because they understand. And that can be a breath of fresh air. For the past six years, I have been attending Hispanicize. This annual event is not only home to thousands of Latino trendsetters and newsmakers, but this is my community. This year, I was…

My ‘Real’ Red Carpet Tips

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with JCPenney and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own. Everyone will have a red carpet moment sometime in their life. This could be any kind of standout life kind of experience. One that will have you shining no matter who you’re with or where you are. And in case you’re wondering, it doesn’t always have to involve an actual red carpet. But having one doesn’t hurt. I’m just saying. Recently I was in Miami for the annual Hispancize event. Not only was I was one of their official social media…

The Latina Makers Market

I may not be the craftiest person around, but there is something about making things with your hands. I once took a sewing class and made a tote bag. It was a very proud moment…I still think about that day. Even without having any sewing talent whatsoever, I was still so proud of the fact that I made something! When We All Grow Summit announced that they were bringing back the Latina Makers Market, I was excited. Not only do I get to go shopping, BUT I get to support these women and their craft. From Frida-inspired art and dolls…

Fundraiser I’m a St. Jude Hero

I have this best friend who loves to run marathons. She’s pretty good at it too. I always tell myself that I would love to run in one, but this bum ankle has it’s own ideas. Anyways, Mrs. Marathon Runner asked me to join her in Nashville as she ran the Rock’n’Roll marathon in April. You know, to cheer her on, support her, and of course get our Nashville on. As I looked over the event web site, I noticed that it wasn’t just any ol’ marathon. This one gave the runners the opportunity to fundraise and support St. Jude…

A Night to Remember

I want to say I have a confession, but I think you guys know me well enough to know that I’m kinda sorta obsessed with sports. Just a little bit…OK…a lot. I don’t know where it comes from. But, there’s just something about the passion, drive, and competitiveness of athletes that I truly admire and respect. So, when Toyota invited me to attend the Chris Paul Family Foundation Celebrity Server dinner, I could not say YES fast enough. Not only would I be on hand as they raise money and awareness for this amazing foundation, but I would get a…
