I feel like every culture has their own connection to music. As a Latina, it was definitely a part of my life from the moment I was born. From family events, cooking in the kitchen, or just hanging out—music was always playing. And I’m not just talking about one kind of music. I grew up listening to mariachis at my grandmas, Classic Rock in my dad’s garage, and Pop music on my Walkman. So, when I got an invite from JCPenney to attend iHeartRadio’s Fiesta Latina in Miami VIP style, I immediately said yes! I found out later that this included getting glammed up in the JCPenney Glam Suite before the show. Read more

You may have read about my always stylish and supportive friend Ivory. I can always count on her for style inspiration and wise words. One thing she taught me was to try clothes on, regardless of what the size is on the label. If it looks like it might fight, just try it on and see. Sometimes it doesn’t fit and sometimes it fits like a glove! Besides, we all know that not all fashion brands are sized the same. Some run bigger than others. Read more
