One thing I’ve learned about our skin is that it’s not universal. There are so many different types and combinations. Even our ethnicity plays a part. Conffianz, a brand new skincare line targeted towards Latinas, knows all about our challenges.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know how adamant I am about being proud of who you are. This means inside and out my loves. There are so many different things that make me who I am and being Latina is one of my favorites. I come from a long line of amazing and strong women—like my mom. Growing up, she not only inspired me to be whatever I wanted, but even today she continues to support me no matter what I do.
Are you a fan of Shea Moisture? I know there are a lot of you out there who are! I’ve heard the buzz about this brand, but I’ve never tried it. Just so you know, if you aren’t interested in soft and vibrant hair, you might as well just stop reading this post right now. I was sent a few pieces from the Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System to try out. And I can say I’m impressed with how great it works…I can’t stop touching my hair.
Let’s just get this out in the open. You know you’re guilty of using your bra as secret hiding place. I know I am! As a little girl, I’d watch my grandma hide her little coin purse in her bra. Taking it out when we’d go to the store. Is she the only one to ever do that? Apparently not! In a recent Just My Size (JMS) poll, 39% or respondents admitted to stashing valuables in their bras. We are not alone. And now, we can do it in style with the JMS Soft Support Wirefree Bra with Hidden Pocket. And I have five to give away!
When I found out that Lane Bryant was revamping their Lane Collection, I was anxious to see what they would come up with. Weren’t you? After renaming it to 6th & Lane, they’ve designed a modern and clean collection—one that I really appreciate. And after selecting a few pieces, I created the look below. They even supplied me with a gift card to give away to you (details below)!

Let me start by saying, I never thought I’d write a post giving you tips on how to take a selfie. Seriously, I didn’t. But, after some thought I realized I’ve been taking selfies since I can remember. Even before cell phones could take photos. Yes, that was a loooooong time ago. And if you ever left your camera laying around, odds are when you developed your pics, there would be a few of me taking silly selfies. Today, they are a part of our cell phone culture. And I want to share my five favorite tips on how to rock them!
Where do I even begin when it comes to the dark circles under my eyes? Some days, I don’t think there’s enough concealer. We’ve all dealt with it and are always looking for a solution—aren’t we? Well, the scientists at Avon have developed the ANEW Clinical Absolute Even Dark Circle Corrector to help brighten up the look of those dark circles. And I have 10 to give away to you!
Update: L’Oreal Paris has given me a few more products to add to the giveaway. So, now there will be two winners. Read about them below!
It’s just hot out you guys. Like over the top hot this summer and it’s only mid July. The sun is blaring and our skin is burning. Mine kind of feels like it’s melting. It’s really not, that might just be a little dramatic. What I do know for sure is that you need your sunscreen this summer and the suncare protection. So, I reached out to my friends at L’Oreal Paris for an impromptu giveaway.
I’m going to try really hard to not cry while writing this post. I love my papa. I care about him more than I think he knows. He might joke around about me being his “other mother” whenever we go (or when I force him to go) to his doctor’s appointments. I can’t help it, I love the guy. No, we didn’t have the perfect relationship as I was growing up, but he worked his hands to the bone to provide for us. This Father’s Day, let’s celebrate the dad’s in our lives and show them they are appreciated. How about we start with a Lubriderm giveaway?
Wow! It’s been a while since my last Curvy Girl Travels post. Sorry about that! There’s only one way I know how to make it up to you…that’s with a super cool giveaway courtesy of Mary Kay of course! I’m also going to pass on a few of my favorite travel beauty tips…which I’ve been using a lot lately. Hopefully, you can use them for your upcoming spring and summer travels.

Who’s officially ready for all things spring? I know my loves in the colder parts of the country are! Believe me, I feel your pain! I used to live in North Dakota and Germany, and although I enjoyed my winter, I couldn’t wait for sunny days and blooming flowers. This is the perfect season to wake things up a little. And the best way I know how is with a fresh spring makeup look, like the Mary Kay Pretty in Pastels look. And guess what? I have a giveaway valued at $300 just for you!
Guess what? It’s time to celebrate Curves and Chaos’ 4th birthday! You may have noticed a few Instagram giveaways this past weekend. I just want to shower you with gifts. Yes, it’s a Curves and Chaos birthday (blog) party! Woohoo! If you can’t tell, I’m really super excited, because you guys have been amazing. All of the support and love you have shown me during the past four years has been beyond anything I could ever imagine.
I remember watching Project Runway for the first time and instantly loving Tim Gunn. He was honest with each contestant, without really pushing them to change who they were as a designer. Besides, Michael Kors of course, he was one of my favorite reasons to watch the fashion designing competition. And with his comments this past summer about the state of designer plus size fashion, I love him even more.

Christmas may be over, but now it’s time to move on to welcoming in a new year! Yes, my loves…2014 is almost here. Have you written up any resolutions yet? No? I’m not sure how I feel about them, but I do like the idea of trying new things. Maybe even a new fragrance? Have you thought about of introducing a brand new scent into your beauty arsenal?
