And this time it’s the off-the-shoulder dress. I know. My wallet feels it too. They’re kind of my favorite right now. Yes, you might need a strapless bra. And thanks to the amazing technology and engineering that is needed to hold these bad boys up, there are some great ones out there. But, that’s up to you.

Giveaway Father’s Day with EO & Ulta Beauty

Guys…Father’s Day is June 19th—are you ready? Let’s just all admit, that like the amazing moms in our lives, fathers should be celebrated and honored on the daily too!

Curvy Girl Travels Let’s Take a Road Trip

I’ve been on so many road trips, I can’t even begin to count how many. In fact, I just returned from a special Mother’s Day weekend road trip with my mom (watch it here or at the end of this post). There are a million reasons I love this way of traveling. But, my favorite one is the freedom of it all. The ability to stop and go on my time table, change directions, and take in my surroundings. I wanted to start off by saying that road trips might not be for everyone.  Instead, I’m going to tell you that there…

Losing Friends and Gaining Perspective

It feels a little strange writing about something like this at my age. I thought I’d have most of this friend stuff figured out at this point. I guess I was wrong. I’m 39-years-old and it turns out I’m still being schooled about who is a “real” friend and who isn’t. When I think about fake friends, I have this flashback from when I was in high school. I had this group of girl friend’s and all we did was gossip and talk about boys—you know the usual. But, when the conversation turned into something they didn’t want me to…

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…
