Celebrating 5 Years My Way! (Giveaway)

Igigi-Curves-and-Chaos-3

Curves and Chaos is officially 5 (insert confetti, champagne, and balloons here)! 2010 seems just like yesterday. Doesn’t it? I want to say time flies when you’re having fun, but I don’t think that phrase will work here. This Curves and Chaos journey has been so much more than “fun.” If you would’ve told me then, what I know today—I would have never believed you.

Conffianz / Skin Care Giveaway

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. Read more

JMS Soft Support Wirefree Bra with Hidden Pocket / Giveaway (Closed)

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!  Read more

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with NEUTROGENA® and Latina Bloggers Connect.

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! Read more

L’Oreal Paris Summer Giveaway (CLOSED)

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. Read more

For Him: Lubriderm Father’s Day Giveaway (closed)

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? Read more
