My Style. My Way.

Sponsored by JD Williams. For me, fashion is a no-brainer. I make sure to wear what makes me happy and I could care less of other peoples expectations. Of course I sometimes go through phases, but one thing always remains the same—my need for comfort. I try my hardest to never compromise there. And as long as I can remember, I’ve always found myself attracted to the freedom of boho-inspired style. It just feels right to me. Since the fall season is my favorite time of the year, I will rock my favorite Bold Boho looks. That’s basically boho with a…

I Was a Health Spa Virgin: 5 Things I Learned

First thing I’m going to do for you is explain what a health spa is and then I’ll tell you how I landed in one. According to Dictionary.com, a health spa is a resort or a special building or room where a person may exercise, swim, or otherwise condition the body. Now that you know that, let me explain how this all unfolded. My amiga Yolanda of SassyMamainLA.com, text me asking if I wanted to head to a resort in Ojai with her. I had just told my husband that I needed a massage and some “me” time badly. Without…

Downtown Vibes

There’s just something about Downtown L.A. that gets me every time. It gives off this historic vibe one minute and then moves on to a unique gritty hustle kind of vibe the next. We always hear how it’s a neighborhood in “transition.” Yeah, maybe. Hmm..I’m in transition too I guess. Maybe that’s why I love it so much. I was in Downtown L.A. this week for the Hispanicize L.A. event and decided to wear this outfit from Lane Bryant. It was comfy casual, but with the edge I wanted. I loved it so much, I decided to do an impromptu photo…

Style Trend | Velvet

It never fails. The fall season rolls around and I just want to wear sweaters, scarves, and velvet. Yes, I’m having a velvet moment. In fact, I ordered some pumps from Shopbop (SALE ALERT) but they were too small and my heart broke just a little bit. No worries. I know I’ll have plenty of other chances to buy myself a little something. When it comes to wearing this lush material, you don’t have to stick with just clothes. Although, that’s a super great option to have. You can spread your wings and venture out with some super hot accessories.…

The Strength of a Woman

“Do you want to cut the umbilical cord?” I stood there with my mouth hanging open. “Ummmmmm, sure?” The nurse handed me a pair of scissors. Snip…snip…snip. Did that just happen? Did I just cut my nephew’s umbilical cord? Whoa. You should know that I have never witnessed a live birth. I may have seen one on video once as a teenager, but after 30 seconds of footage I covered my eyes. At this moment, I stood there holding my sister-in-law’s hand, helping her breathe, and praying with her through the contractions. I was instantly in awe of her courage. When…

Here’s How YOU Can Help Fight Breast Cancer | Giveaway (Closed)

Do me a favor. Stop reading this for a second and think of someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer. Is it someone you’re related to? Maybe a close friend of yours? Someone from work? Or is it you? I think that one way or another, we all know someone who has been touched by this horrible disease. Unfortunately, I have in more ways than one. And I’m so sick and tired of it hurting the people I love. Aren’t you? That’s why I’ve decided, for the second year in a row, to participate in the American…
