Welcome to the Neighborhood CVS Pharmacy y Más

Sponsored by CVS. If you’ve ever grown up with, been around, used, or wanted to try Hispanic products you’re going to wish you had a CVS Pharmacy y Más near you. I was recently invited to the opening of one in the city of Bell (Los Angeles) and I was in awe. Just imagine the CVS you already love, but then add more than 1,500 NEW products throughout the store that include groceries, over-the-counter medications, household cleaners, appliances, cookware, baby, and beauty. As I walked through the aisles I was having major flashbacks of staying at my grandma’s house. There…

Giveaway A Mother’s Style and Influence (Closed)

Sponsored by Gwynnie Bee. When it comes to my mom and personal style where do I even begin? I’ve written about her before (and even my abuelita) and how her dressing me as a kid taught me about fashion. I mean…she styled me for the first 18 years of my life—and I practically fought her every step of the way. But, that doesn’t mean I didn’t admire the way she dressed. She has and will always be my style inspiration. In fact, when I chose this dress from Gwynnie Bee, I had her in mind. I love flipping through my…

15 Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Don’t panic guys! You still have time to buy the favorite mom in your life a gift for Mother’s Day. Although, we know that they should be honored every day. Excuse me while I try to win some bonus points with my mama (hi ma!). I put together a little Mother’s Day gift guide featuring 15 things I think would make great gifts (besides a spa day or vacation obviously). When you head out shopping, remember to always think of her first. What would fit her lifestyle, personality, needs, and style? Consider all of these things when buying her gift. And…

10 Things You Might Not Know About Me

You’d think being a blogger and living in the social media world, you’d know almost everything about me. Nope. There are just some things I haven’t shared with you guys. It’s not because I’m embarrassed or anything. I just never really got around to it. I guess there’s no better time than now to get to know me better. So, here we are and 10 things you might not know about me. 1. I WAS A PAGEANT KID Yup. My mom enrolled me in beauty pageants when I was little. From an infant to a preteen, I strutted myself onstage—once…

Golden Moment

How many times have you purchased something online because you instantly fell in love with it? But, then you get super nervous because you aren’t sure if it’s going to fit right and how it will look on you. And then when you get it, you question wearing it because it’s a super bright color that you’re not used to wearing? Yeah, I just basically described my entire situation with this gold crochet lace dress from Lane Bryant. I will tell you that buying it was an awesome decision, because I basically want to marry it. The photos you see…

Hispanicize and My JCPenney Experience

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with JCPenney and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own. My time in Miami has come and gone. If you follow me on social media, you might have seen that I was out at the annual Hispanicize conference. An entire week of Latino trendsetters and newsmakers in the digital space. I was sponsored by JCPenney (watch my video below) and invited to speak on a keynote panel at the inaugural DiMe Summit. Whenever I attend a social media conference, I’m always there to learn and network. But, I will admit I…

Festival Season Inspiration

Festival season is here guys! And it all starts here in Southern California with Coachella. I know that’s all you’ve been hearing about right? I’m not going to lie, I’ve only been to Coachella once. But, when I lived in Germany I made it to a few music festivals. So, what do you wear during festival season? Whatever you want of course! If it was me, I’d definitely get my boho on in the most comfortable way possible. But, that’s just me. If you’re not sure what to rock, I pulled some looks from some of my favorite retailers and posted them…
