Carmakoma’s #DiversityisBeautiful with Fluvia Lacerda

Society is always and forever trying to saturate us with their unrealistic ideas of beauty. Always. It’s so uninspiring to constantly have those images thrown in our faces. That’s why I love when someone in the plus size industry shakes things up. It seems Danish fashion brand Carmakoma feels the same. They believe that “beauty comes in all forms.” That being said, they have launched their SS17 collection and campaign with the confidence-boosting message that “Diversity is beautiful.” Something I totally agree with. With our “Diversity is Beautiful” campaign, we want to widen the stereotypical female beauty ideal and take…

Travel Take me Back to San Antonio

One of the major perks of this life I live, is my ability to travel. Sometimes my trips are “so-so” and sometimes they are “ahhhmazing.” Then you have travel experiences that leave you in awe of your experience. From the hotel you stay in to the people you get to spend your time with. That was this last trip as a guest of Kia in the heart of Texas—San Antonio. I love San Antonio, I really do. But, every time I visit, I don’t get to see too much of it. I’m always stuck in a hotel. This time, thanks…

Style Trend 70’s Denim

To know me is to know my love for denim. I wear it all of the time. And believe me when I tell you that I’m always looking for a great new pair to add to my growing collection. There are four 70’s-inspired styles I’m currently eyeing right now. You know I had to share them with you too. Isn’t that what friends are for? Each of these styles are all available in plus sizes and in different price ranges, which you’ll find below. I’ve included patchwork denim, flared denim, frayed hems, and denim overalls. And just because they’re inspired…

Life Rediscovering Joy

Joy is defined as an “emotion of great delight or happiness.” And it was missing from my life. Actually, for a lot longer than I’d like to admit. I’ll never forget the moment I realized it was gone. It was months ago at a concert with my best friend. We were watching our favorite band perform and at the end of the show I felt completely overwhelmed. In that exact moment, I couldn’t help but burst into tears. I felt something I hadn’t felt in such a long time—pure joy. In a world as chaotic as ours, I know that…

My Tips Packing for Hispanicize

There are a lot of reasons why I love what I do. Having a community of influencers and creators that I can connect and learn with is just the icing on the cake. That’s why I love going to events like Hispanicize. And this year I’m excited announce that I’m an official Hispanicize 2017 Social Correspondent. It’s the largest annual event for Latino trendsetters and newsmakers in digital content creation, journalism, marketing, entertainment and tech entrepreneurship—and this will be my fifth time attending! Are you planning on being a part of Hispanicize and the Dime Summit in Miami this year?…

20 Ways to Show Yourself Love

If your head is swimming in this thing called life, then you’re as shocked as I was when I realized it’s already February. And the day of love, AKA Valentine’s Day is here. As you and I both know, love should be celebrated every single day. But, if you need a reminder like one special day of the month, then February 14th will do. Let’s be honest, life is hard and can sometimes leave us in a state of yuck. I’m a true believer that you must take care of yourself first before you can care for others. You’ve heard…

Travel Our Very Own Winter Wonderland

As a California girl, you’d think I’d only love sunny beaches and palm trees. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my warm weather. But, sometimes a girl needs to experience a little snow and ice. Which I really haven’t done since my days of living in North Dakota and Germany. That’s why, when my best friend offered me her home in Maine for 9 days, I couldn’t say no—even in the middle of January. Before you ask, no I don’t ski, snowboard, snowmobile or any other activity that requires playing in the snow. I do love to lounge though.…
