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…

Inside the GRAMMY Gift Lounge

To say I’m just a fan of music is a little bit of an understatement. I think music is necessary for me to function. It’s that serious. I love so many genres and eras of music, I just can’t settle on one. I guess I’m kind of like the GRAMMYs—I appreciate them all. And as you know, the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards® will air on February 15th and I was invited to check out the runway-inspired GRAMMY Gift Lounge. Open to presenters and performers during three full days of rehearsals at STAPLES Center, I bumped into Shad Moss (AKA Bow…

Becky G is great at creating catchy Pop songs that you can’t get out of your head. And that’s OK because you actually like her music and don’t mind singing it over and over. It’s been days since I got back from seeing her perform in Miami and even weeks since her exclusive live performance at a local AT&T store. This little chica is talented and her fans adore her! What makes her music even better is she’s a down to earth girl, who is super sweet, with the right amount of fierceness. And I’m happy to share that she has teamed up with AT&T to bring her biggest fans (AKA Beasters) a chance of a lifetime—an exclusive VIP experience.

Lane Bryant #CombatCancer Event / Video Recap

I was completely honored when Lane Bryant asked me to co-host their #CombatCancer event with the American Cancer Society. I couldn’t say “YES” fast enough. Hosting this event has inspired me to do more, including raise money for the American Cancer Society by walking in the Making Strides Los Angeles walk for breast cancer. I made sure to recap this special event, because it meant so much to me to be a part of this day.
