Curvy Girl Travels Let’s Take a Road Trip

I’ve been on so many road trips, I can’t even begin to count how many. In fact, I just returned from a special Mother’s Day weekend road trip with my mom (watch it here or at the end of this post). There are a million reasons I love this way of traveling. But, my favorite one is the freedom of it all. The ability to stop and go on my time table, change directions, and take in…

Losing Friends and Gaining Perspective

It feels a little strange writing about something like this at my age. I thought I’d have most of this friend stuff figured out at this point. I guess I was wrong. I’m 39-years-old and it turns out I’m still being schooled about who is a “real” friend and who isn’t. When I think about fake friends, I have this flashback from when I was in high school. I had this group of girl friend’s…

5 Spring Beauty Favorites

It’s time to chat spring beauty favorites guys! I’ve had a couple of these in my hands for a bit and haven’t had the chance to share them with you. So, that’s what’s on today’s blogging agenda.

And the fifth one is just a beauty…

Celebrating My Culture and Making Memories

Sponsored by Credit Karma Honoring and celebrating my heritage and culture is not something I take for granted. For those of you who don’t know, I am third generation Mexican American. My mom’s side of the family has roots in Tucson, Arizona and my dad’s side has them here in Southern California. I spent a lot of time in both places when I was growing up and there’s one thing they both have in common—honoring…

Introducing Boutique+ from JCPenney

Sponsored by JCPenney. The struggle that is plus size fashion has been one that we are way too familiar with.

Curvy Girl Travels Downtown Miami in 2 Minutes

Whenever someone mentions Miami, I can’t help but think of sunny days, beautiful beaches, and nightlife. I’ve been there a handful of times and I have to admit, it is one of my favorite places to visit. But, what if I told you that there’s more to this place than the obvious? Yes, there is a whole other side filled with art, music, food, and history in the heart of Downtown Miami. While I was…

Spring Layering with Lightweight Jackets

When Reah Norman of StyledbyReah.com asked me to take part in the Bloomingdales Shop For Women Spring event, I jumped at the chance. She showcased seven spring trends and I was asked to help with one of my favorites—layering with lightweight jackets. We might be right smack in the middle of spring, but that doesn’t mean it’s been all sunny days and blooming flowers. No matter where you live, you know the weather has been…

I Am #WomenInspired

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Prudential and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own. I grew up in a home where my dad was the key provider. My mom worked, but she didn’t bring in what my dad did. And although we lived paycheck to paycheck, we had everything we needed. My parents worked their butts off to make sure we had the basic necessities. I appreciated that more than…

Style Trend Bomber Jackets

Where do I even begin? First, you should know that I owned a black bomber jacket when I was in my late teens. The old school style with the orange on the inside. Originally worn by pilots, the bomber jacket has gone through it’s share of changes. I guess you can say it has and continues to evolve to where it is today as the latest spring trend. Known distinctly by it’s boxy silhouette and flat…

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,…

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…

So, here we are and 10 things you might not know about me. 1. I WAS…

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…
