Be Different. Be Amazing.

It’s such an amazing feeling to be passionate about something in life, especially when it makes you happy. Unfortunately, there’s a chance you will come across people who will try to rattle your happy little cage, take away your blissfulness, and make you feel like you’re not good enough-whether it’s on purpose or not.

Photo Shoot Fun with Zelie for She

Did I ever tell you how important indie plus-size fashion designers are to this community? They bring creativity, quality, and detail to their collections that a lot of big brands sometimes miss. Not to mention blood, sweat, and tears. As you know, Elann Zelie of Zelie for She is a personal friend of mine. And she is so passionate about her line and creating stylish clothing for plus-size women. So, when she asked if I’d be interested in modeling a few of her pieces, of course I said yes!

Sparkling Latin Grammy Style

I consider myself a denim kind of lady—wearing it all of the time. Truth is, I don’t wear dresses very often. But, when L’Oreal Paris invited me to attend the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas, I made sure to find one that added some much needed sparkle. I had a few outfits ideas in mind for the biggest night in Latin music. It was this look that made the cut!

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

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.

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.
