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…

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…

Beauty Buzz Circa Beauty

When I heard Eva Mendes was coming out with her own line of beauty products, I wasn’t expecting much. We all know how celebrity brands have performed in the past. But, I’m happy to report that I am pleasantly surprised with the CIRCA Beauty products I was sent to try out. Everything was pretty close to professional quality with it’s rich pigments—at drugstore prices. Only my eyes, lips, and cheeks were lucky this time around. I…

Me, Myself, and Baseball

To know me is to love me. And to really know me, is to know my love for sports—especially baseball. Some might say I’m a little too passionate, but that’s neither here nor there. I might not write about it here on my blog that often, but it’s a part of who I am. It has been since like…forever. My hubby and I are even proud season ticket holders for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Blogging Tips Embracing Individuality as a Blogger

If you’re reading this, you’re either a blogger or you’re thinking about starting your first blog. And in case you didn’t know, I’ve been in this blogging game since 2008. That’s eight years of my life in front of my computer, which is actually like 16 in blogger years. I’ve seen this industry grow beyond anything I could’ve ever imagined. In the beginning, if you would’ve told me bloggers were going to make six figures and…

A Spring Kind of Feeling

Birds are chirping and flowers are blooming. It’s officially spring guys! Do you know what else that means? It means it’s time to put the dreaded spring cleaning on hold and get your wardrobe in order. For me that means finding dresses, sandals, and accessories I can mix and match. Pieces that will pull double and even triple duty this season. I recently partnered with Kohl’s to share a look with you that can be…

One swimwear trend that caught my eye are white swimsuits. I searched high and low online and found 13 plus size swimsuits that are bright white and ready to be rocked. You’ll find cutouts and mesh in one and two pieces. Whether you want to show more…

Marina Rinaldi Spring/Summer 2016 Preview

When it comes to plus size fashion, I think a lot of people tend to forget that luxury designers are part of the industry. A brand like Marina Rinaldi, which has been around since 1980, is designing sophisticated yet modern designs for the curvy woman. I was invited to a special spring/summer preview at their Beverly Hills boutique and I was in love with so many pieces. As you’ll see below, this italian brand is…

Say Bye-Bye to Thigh Chafing

Sponsored by Bandelettes®. I will admit that I’ve been through the worst of the worst when it comes to thigh chafing. Especially,  when I wear my favorite dresses or skirts. In fact, I’ve actually dealt with intense pain and even scabbing. Believe me, it is not something I want to go through again. And it doesn’t matter what size you are, it is a lot more common than you think. Well, what if I told…

Stepping Into Spring

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by searsStyle. Any and all opinions are my own. My mom has always been a conscious shopper—always. Especially when we were growing up. She’s the ultimate deal hunter. So it was no surprise that she would always shop at places like Sears, for everything from our back-to-school clothes to classic white undershirts for my dad. Seriously, finding what we needed was never a problem. This seems to be the same…
