Tropical prints are always popular this time of the season. Actually, wrote this post around this time last year. I’ve been wanting to write about it, but I’m barely getting to it now. And the last few couple of days, I’ve been in a planning mode for a special weekend I’m helping to put together in Miami. Which means, I definitely have tropical thoughts in my heart and on my mind. So, I had to put this style trend post together. Read more
This is a sponsored collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Avocados from Mexico.
I recently partnered with Avocados From Mexico for a really cool campaign. Yes, I said avocados! I’m so obsessed with them right now. Not only are they amazingly yummy, delicious, healthy, awesome, and all of the above—but they can be used for tons of beauty purposes too. Read more
What can I say about fear and self-doubt that we don’t know already? Yes, it sucks and it’s totally normal to feel both. Come on…we wouldn’t be considered human if we didn’t. And it never fails that these two always seem to pop up when there’s an opportunity for me to try something I’ve never done before. Read more
I just might have a thing for mascara. Especially, one that packs a powerful punch. I’ve always had long lashes, but lately it seems like they’ve started getting thinner. That does not make me a happy chica. In this latest Beauty Buzz, I was sent this Susan Posnick mascara to review and I have to admit I am super happy with the results! Read more

When was the last time you went shopping for workout gear? I’ve written about the struggle when it comes to finding plus size active wear. Yeah, it bites. Well, long gone are the days of working out in a t-shirt and sweatpants that weren’t meant for today’s active woman. I was recently introduced to Kohl’s Tek Gear collection and I am officially a fan.

A few weeks ago, I posted “Let the Journey Begin to a Healthier Me,” detailing the beginning of my fitness journey. Then on Facebook, I asked if you guys were interested in me recapping what I’m up to. And some of you said yes, so here we go! Now, I’m in no way, shape, or form a medical professional. I’m only sharing what is working for me and my body. Just thought I’d throw that out there. And before we go any further, my goal, since day one is to live a healthy and strong life. It’s not and never has been about a number on the scale. Read more

Where are my JLO fans? I know you can’t see me, but I’m raising my hand like crazy right now. If you’re a true fan, then you know she’s not only a multi-talented performer, but she’s also in the fashion game with her own collection available at Kohl’s. I had a chance to try out a few Jennifer Lopez plus size pieces and I only love her more now (if that’s even possible). Read more
You may have noticed that I have a thing for accessories. This is especially true when it comes to necklaces. They can make or break an entire outfit for me. When I accessorize, I tend to choose a piece that will standout—since my outfits aren’t very complicated. This spring and summer (AKA festival season), one of my favorites are on trend—silver statement necklaces. And I found 15 of them to share with you! Read more
In case you’ve been out of the loop, L.A. has been in a little bit of a heat wave. And when that happens, I tend to wear the comfiest thing I can find. Yes, this includes the right pair of denim. I have to stay cool the best way I know how people! Ideel (formelry Ideeli) sent me a few pieces from their new (and improved) plus collection on their web site. And it made the perfect casual look on a blazing Saturday afternoon. Read more

I’ll admit that swimsuit shopping isn’t normally one of my favorite things to do. I know I’m not alone either. But, don’t worry my loves it’s not as bad as we once thought it was. I’m super determined to conquer it! I headed over to Target to check out the new AVA & VIV swimwear collection and to find a few spring break worthy pieces. Read more
