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…

Style Trend Rocking Rainbow

There are million reasons to love rainbows. Maybe you’re secretly hoping you’ll find a pot of gold at the end of one. You have to love the wishful thinkers. When I think of them, they remind me of TV shows from when I was a kid. Two of my favorites were Mork & Mindy and Rainbow Bright. Unless you’re my age, you’re probably going to have to Google them. I officially feel old now. Whatever reason you love rainbows, I’m going to give you a few more…like 19 to be specific. I found a few things that caught my eye and…

It turns out finding a dress in my color of the moment was a lot easier than I thought. With the click of a button on CATHERINES.COM, I found two pieces that I could style in…

Yes, You Can Steal Belle’s Style

Just a little warning, the following sentences may sound like I’m bragging…which I’m actually OK with. Remember last week when I was at Walt Disney Studios as part of a field trip with We All Grow? I wasn’t allowed to say anything then, but the group I was with were THE FIRST outside of the actual studio to watch the new live-action Beauty and the Beast. Yes, even before the press or any other media! I’m not going to lie, that made me feel super special. Don’t worry, I’m not going to ruin the movie for you. There are no…

Carmakoma’s #DiversityisBeautiful with Fluvia Lacerda

Society is always and forever trying to saturate us with their unrealistic ideas of beauty. Always. It’s so uninspiring to constantly have those images thrown in our faces. That’s why I love when someone in the plus size industry shakes things up. It seems Danish fashion brand Carmakoma feels the same. They believe that “beauty comes in all forms.” That being said, they have launched their SS17 collection and campaign with the confidence-boosting message that “Diversity is beautiful.” Something I totally agree with. With our “Diversity is Beautiful” campaign, we want to widen the stereotypical female beauty ideal and take…

And just because they’re inspired…
