Breezy in L.A.

It’s no secret that L.A. doesn’t really have crisp fall days or chilly winters. That’s why I can get away with dressing like this in the middle of December. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really complaining…OK maybe just a little bit. I’m that girl who loves cold winter days. But, I also love being able to wear long kimonos with short  dresses and ankle boots. Living Doll Los Angeles sent me their Breezy Kimono (sold out), which I was drooling over since the moment I laid eyes on it.

My Nightly Beauty Routine

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with PONDS® and Latina Bloggers Connect.

When I was younger, I was that girl who always fell asleep with her makeup on…always. As I got older, I learned about how important it is to take off that makeup before heading to bed. Today, I not only take off my makeup, but I have a nightly beauty routine before I get those much needed zzzzzzzz’s. I not only sleep better, but I wake up with more radiant and refreshed skin. Pond’s sent me a few products to add my already existing routine and they fit in quite nicely! Read more

Photo Shoot Fun with Zelie for She

Did I ever tell you how important indie plus-size fashion designers are to this community? They bring creativity, quality, and detail to their collections that a lot of big brands sometimes miss. Not to mention blood, sweat, and tears. As you know, Elann Zelie of Zelie for She is a personal friend of mine. And she is so passionate about her line and creating stylish clothing for plus-size women. So, when she asked if I’d be interested in modeling a few of her pieces, of course I said yes!

I had a few outfits ideas in mind for the biggest night in Latin music. It was this look that made the cut!
