OOTD: Chic in Washington D.C.

Last night was my first night here in Washington D.C. I’m in town for a Latina blogger retreat and I feel like I’ve been going non-stop! Thank goodness we had some free time last night to enjoy dinner at Cuba Libre. It’s a really cool restaurant and the food was yummy! I heard it was one of the hottest places here, so I decided to wear this cute shift dress from H&M’s plus line. My…

OOTD: L.A. Latina Blogger Event

For those who don’t know, I try to be very involved in the Latina blogging community. I’m very proud of my heritage. I also run a directory of Latina bloggers at www.BlogsbyLatinas.com and a Facebook group for Latina bloggers who live in the Los Angeles area. Last night, along with Ford (thank you!), we hosted a networking event at Beso in Hollywood. If you haven’t been there, you really need to go! It’s so beautiful!!…

Shoe Fever: The White Sandal

Guess who went out and bought herself a pair of white sandals? Meeeee! Yes, I’ve been wanting a pair for a really long time and I finally got one. Now, normally I don’t like wearing white, because I always spill something on myself. LOL! But, these are shoes and I know they’ll probably be easy to clean. I know I’ll wear them out this summer too!

Wish List: Dorothy Perkins

I have yet to purchase anything from Dorothy Perkins. I know! I know! I really need to get on the ball with all these brands that I’m loving!! I sit here and drool about their clothes, I need to just hurry up and order something. Maybe it will be from my current “Wish List?” I really  need everything here. Each piece is so classic and some come with a little twist. And I’m loving the…

Beauty Buzz: ARTISTRY ‘Escape to Paradise’ Collection

Anything with “Paradise” in the name is all I need to hear. And ARTISTRY’s ‘Escape to Paradise’ collection reminds me of my kind of escape…a tropical island. The soft and radiant colors are nothing but beautiful. The collection consists of a Cheek and Eye Quad in Golden Glow and Fresh Radiance, Lip Gloss Duo in Tropical Coral and Pacific Orchid, and Eye Pencil in Island Violet and Lagoon. These are definitely luxury-quality cosmetics. I really…

Events: BECCA ETC Swimwear Preview

Last week, Plus Model Magazine invited a group of us bloggers to preview the new BECCA ETC Swimwear plus size collection. If you’re like me, then you know how hard it is to find swimwear that not only fits, but actually looks trendy. And in a color other than black. We had a chance to meet the entire BECCA ETC team, including head designer Rebecca Virtue. Not only did we see the different styles of…

OOTD: Fresh as a Flower

Just so you ladies know, I’m making huuuuuge strides (no pun intended) when it comes to wearing prints. Especially floral prints and bright colors. Yesterday, I attended an event (post coming soon) and I decided to wear this floral H&M pencil skirt that’s been sitting in my closet for a few weeks. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and I had to buy it. You’ve probably seen it on some…

OK…go ahead and yell at me. I know I’m a little late on this, but I’ve been a busy blogger.
