Los Angeles | Win a Ticket to Curvy Cocktails! (Closed)

Kristine Thompson, the blogger behind TrendyCurvy.com, created this social event to bring together bloggers, brands, models, influencers, and curvy fashionistas to one location to celebrate all things plus size. Unfortunately, I will be out of town and won’t be able to attend. Bummer! So, I asked Kristine if I could give a ticket away—and she said yes! Rocking their best cocktail attire, Curvy Cocktails will also be co-hosted by Candice Kelly, plus model of Dorothy Combs Modeling Agency. And there will be a very…

5 Reasons You Need to Be at CatConLA

I will say this loud and proud. Yes, I am a bonafide proud cat lady. Ever since I was a little girl, cats have been a part of my life. My first fur baby was named Kitty and he was a beautiful Siamese. Today, I’m a proud cat mom to Kiki (14), Stinker (8), and Snow (1)—all rescues. I know you have a stereotypical image in your head of what cat people look and act like. But, just go ahead and scratch that from your brain right now. Cat parents come in all shapes, sizes, colors, backgrounds, and lifestyles. If you’re…

Celebrating My Culture and Making Memories

Sponsored by Credit Karma Honoring and celebrating my heritage and culture is not something I take for granted. For those of you who don’t know, I am third generation Mexican American. My mom’s side of the family has roots in Tucson, Arizona and my dad’s side has them here in Southern California. I spent a lot of time in both places when I was growing up and there’s one thing they both have in common—honoring Mexican culture, history, and traditions. It also helps when you have abuelitas who kept it real. Now, as an adult, I appreciate my roots more…

Welcome to the Neighborhood CVS Pharmacy y Más

Sponsored by CVS. If you’ve ever grown up with, been around, used, or wanted to try Hispanic products you’re going to wish you had a CVS Pharmacy y Más near you. I was recently invited to the opening of one in the city of Bell (Los Angeles) and I was in awe. Just imagine the CVS you already love, but then add more than 1,500 NEW products throughout the store that include groceries, over-the-counter medications, household cleaners, appliances, cookware, baby, and beauty. As I walked through the aisles I was having major flashbacks of staying at my grandma’s house. There…

Me, Myself, and Baseball

To know me is to love me. And to really know me, is to know my love for sports—especially baseball. Some might say I’m a little too passionate, but that’s neither here nor there. I might not write about it here on my blog that often, but it’s a part of who I am. It has been since like…forever. My hubby and I are even proud season ticket holders for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Yes, the love is real and yes…I bleed Dodger blue. Am I alone here? I mean…who wouldn't lay down in centerfield? 👋🏽 I regret nothing. #Dodgers #iLoveLA…
