My Pantene Beautiful Lengths Experience

Disclosure: This is a sponsored and heartfelt collaboration with Pantene.

The relationship with our hair is a funny thing. We love it one minute, then we’re hating it the next—especially when it won’t do what we want it to do. In the end, it’s love that wins, because when you ask people to cut their luscious locks they’re pretty hesitant to do it. Or when someone loses it, beyond their own control, it can be devastating. That’s why I was more than happy to donate 10-inches of my own hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths on National Donate Your Hair Day (NDYHD). Read more

Holiday Fashion Trends / Metallics

This is my first holiday post and I’m so excited! Yes, I’m that person. You know this is my favorite time of the year. I’ve been snooping around online and I’ve spotted some holiday fashion trends. Five trends to be exact. And I’m going to share them with you over the next week. Let’s start it off with metallics. Read more

An Adventure in Prints

Let’s be honest here. I love wearing all black outfits. I do love other colors, but not as much. And since we’re being honest, I only wear bold prints every once in a while. I try to be adventurous, but sometimes I just love simple outfits. But, when Igigi reached out and asked if I’d like to try a dress from their latest collection, I stepped out of my comfort zone on purpose. Say hello to the Igigi Evelyn dress.

Oh, You are So Worth It! / Giveaway (Closed)

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and L’Oreal Paris.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know how adamant I am about being proud of who you are. This means inside and out my loves. There are so many different things that make me who I am and being Latina is one of my favorites. I come from a long line of amazing and strong women—like my mom. Growing up, she not only inspired me to be whatever I wanted, but even today she continues to support me no matter what I do. Read more

Plus-Size Skinny Jeans for Every Budget

Shout out to Helena, a fellow blogger over at PinkGuayoyo.com for inspiring this post. She asked me on Twitter what some of my favorite plus-size skinny jeans were. Then I realized, this is not the first time someone one has asked me that question. So, I set out to do a little research and see what the internet had to offer us in the skinny jean department.  Read more

Say Goodbye to Dry Winter Hands

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

I know I’ve said a million times how much I love colder weather. Of course, there are some downsides to it. One that I honestly can not stand is what it does to my hands. I am that person who is tortured with dry, cracking, and itchy hands in the winter. Yup, that’s me. My big ol’ paws (courtesy of my dad and I wouldn’t have it any other way) are not happy when dealing with chilly weather. I can happily say goodbye to the torture because I’ve discovered Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream and took their 7-day challenge. Read more

9 Sweater Styles for the Season

I’m happy to report that it’s finally starting to feel like sweater weather around here. You don’t even know how happy that makes me. I’m a huge fan of chilly weather. I know you East Coasters probably think I’m crazy, but when you live in L.A. it’s not something you’re used to. This gloomy day helped me realize that it’s time to stock up on cozy sweaters.

Breaking the (Plus-Size) Fashion Rules

Aren’t you sick and tired of people telling you what you shouldn’t wear as a plus-size woman? I know I am. There are a lot of fashion rules out there, but of course there are some that are specifically targeted to us. You may or may not follow them, and that’s up to you. Just so you know, I’m not following anyone’s fashion rules except my own. Read more

This is my Makeup Life (and All My Fails)

It’s no secret that I’m not a makeup professional. I wasn’t even allowed to wear makeup until I was 17, although that didn’t stop me from wearing it at school and taking it off before I got home. My mom never showed me how to wear it and what not to do. In fact, my makeup life has been one stumbling block after another. Learning as I go. Read more

Change is Good

Blame it on the seasons…hormones…or just boredom. I’m hoping to make a few small changes around here. Nothing too drastic. I wouldn’t want to run you off or anything. I guess you can say I’m evolving in this crazy world of blogging. You may have already noticed that if you’ve been around since the beginning of Curves and Chaos. Read more
