Sparkling Latin Grammy Style

I consider myself a denim kind of lady—wearing it all of the time. Truth is, I don’t wear dresses very often. But, when L’Oreal Paris invited me to attend the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas, I made sure to find one that added some much needed sparkle. I had a few outfits ideas in mind for the biggest night in Latin music. It was this look that made the cut!

An Adventure in Prints

Let’s be honest here. I love wearing all black outfits. I do love other colors, but not as much. And since we’re being honest, I only wear bold prints every once in a while. I try to be adventurous, but sometimes I just love simple outfits. But, when Igigi reached out and asked if I’d like to try a dress from their latest collection, I stepped out of my comfort zone on purpose. Say hello to the Igigi Evelyn dress.

I Took the Dove Silky Hair Dare

Disclosure: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Dove.

Maybe you should only read this post if you really want silky soft hair—just saying. Personally, I’m a big fan. I’m that one person who’s always touching and running their fingers through their hair. And I love testing out different products to see what will and won’t work. So, when Dove contacted me and asked me if I wanted to take their Silky Hair Dare and try out the new Dove Pure Care Dry Oil collection—I was immediately interested. Read more

A Night with Katy Perry

There’s just something about Katy Perry’s songs. They’re so catchy. You hear them once and they’re just stuck in your head all day. “I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar…” Yeah, that was me days after CoverGirl invited me to attend her Los Angeles concert. And to make the night cooler, I even got the chance to meet her! Read more

Love is in the Air

A few months ago, when I attended the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Super Saturday event, I was really happy to see that Rachel Pally was there supporting the cause. I was even more excited when I saw that she was selling pieces from her White Label Collection—Rachel Pally plus size line. I was immediately drawn to this dress. I thought, “this would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.” And I was right, this dress was perfect for my sister-in-laws beach-themed wedding.  Read more

Life Changer (OOTD)

Have you ever had one of those days you were unsure of? One where you didn’t know how it was going to end. You hope for a just a good day, but by the time you lay down to go to sleep you realize it was life altering. That was the kind of day I had yesterday. It all started with a Latina Brunch at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) Annual Conference. I was invited as a Toyota Latino Ambassador. The brunch, which included Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, was beyond inspiring, motivating, and all of the above. Read more

Curvy Girl Travels: Santa Barbara

Can I just close my eyes and go back to Santa Barbara please? No offense guys, but I can see myself living the life in this beautiful city without a phone in my hand or a laptop in sight. Sadly, I was there for blogger duties only and didn’t get to enjoy it as I would have wanted to, but I did get to visit a few places courtesy of Lincoln Motor Company. And I did get to snap a few photos. Read more

Why Choosing the Right Bra is Important

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with JMS. Any opinions expressed in this post are true and my own.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. My personal style has and always will be about comfort. That’s just who I am. I know there are people out there who suffer in silence (or not) to wear today’s hottest fashion trends. Not me! I’m all about being comfortable, while still wearing what I love—even right down to the bra. Yes, choosing the right bra is important and a must-have in my book. Read more
