Babble.com Weekly Recap

I don’t know if you guys know or not, but my dream has always been to write. When I was in college, I imagined myself traveling the world as a journalist. Today, I not only love to write on my blog, but I’m also a freelancer (available for hire by the way). And one of the places you’ll find me is over on Babble.com, writing about beauty and style topics (this includes plus sizes) in their Latina section. Read more

Beauty Buzz: Neutrogena Triple Moisture Hair Collection

It’s very true that time flies when you’re having fun. Just look at this summer—it’s already mid-August! It’s almost over. No matter how you spent it, odds are whatever you did involved the sun, salt water, chlorine, or heated styling tools in the hair department. Am I right? That’s why as a Nuetrogena Ambassador (all opinions are true and my own), I want to introduce you to the Neutrogena Triple Moisture hair collection. Read more

I’m in Cosmo for Latinas!

I’m just a girl behind a computer…that’s how I see myself. Growing up, I never quite knew what my life was going to be like as an adult. I definitely never thought I’d be living the life I am right now. I’m doing what I love and I’m amazingly blessed. So, when I see my tiny face in the pages of a magazine, I get a little excited! Just a little. Read more

My Style, My Way (OOTD)

I love how my style is changing. I wear whatever I love and what I want, without feeling the pressure of following trends. I think that’s how it should be for everyone. Fashion should never be about wearing what others think you should. That’s why I love and appreciate my daring and creative fashionista friend Ivory (check out her blog here). She makes no excuses. She loves it, she wears it. And that’s what true style is about. Read more

Style Trend: Black and White Stripes

I’m seeing stripes…again. Black and white stripes have definitely made another comeback. I love when fashion trends do that. Just when you think it’s dead, it comes back with a vengeance. OK, maybe not a vengeance, but it’s every where! Read more

For Him: Aveeno Men’s Skin Care

I’m going to be completely honest here. I have no control over the skin care products my hubby uses. As much as I want him to use certain brands, his face is in his hands (literally). He really doesn’t like trying new things…that is until I was sent the Aveeno Men’s skin care line to review. Read more

I know what you’re thinking, but I’m always up for a challenge. That’s why my friends and I applied for this amazing opportunity. And you know I’m going to share this Curvy Girl Travels adventure!

A Navy and Denim Kind of Day (OOTD)

I’m finally back home from my trip to Austin, Texas! I was there attending and speaking at the Texas Style Council Conference. I got in really late on Monday night…actually early Tuesday morning and was exhausted from a day of flying. I woke up and remembered I had a blog event to attend to. In a rush I got ready and this is the look I came up with. Read more

10 Designer Handbags I Want Right Now

I’m having total designer handbag envy right now. No, I can’t really afford any of these at the moment, but a girl can look and create a wish list right? Yes, I know there will knockoffs in a minute. So, in the meantime, I’m going to just imagine these on my arm. That Alexander McQueen is gorgeous! Read more

10 Favorites: Lucky Brand Plus

I have always been a fan of Lucky Brand and their bohemian rustic vibe. Is that even a thing? Whatever…I’ve loved them before they came out with a plus line. I did get my hands on a few pairs of their denim and I’ve officially added them to my short list of favorites. And after checking out their new arrivals I knew I had write up a new “10 Favorites” post! Read more

In a Black and White Kind of Mood (OOTD)

I will be the first to admit that I’ve been wearing a lot of black and white lately. I don’t know what it is. Sometimes, I just get in a fashion phase, where I want to wear the same color or styles. Eh…it happens. I was looking for a chic, but comfy look and this is what I came up with. Read more
