Starting Off 2015 My Way (and Loving It)

Do people really make New Year’s resolutions anymore? I’m sitting here, writing up my first post of 2015 and that’s what’s on my mind. I can’t help but think that a lot of people still do, but the real question should be if any of these people follow through with them or not. I didn’t really make any resolutions or even one of those fancy vision boards. In fact, I started off the new year at my own pace. Read more

But, I also love being able to wear long kimonos with short  dresses and ankle boots.

My Nightly Beauty Routine

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

Pond’s sent me a few products to add my already existing routine and they fit in quite nicely! Read more
