Let me start by saying, I never thought I’d write a post giving you tips on how to take a selfie. Seriously, I didn’t.

And if you ever left your camera laying around, odds are when you developed your pics, there would be a few of me taking silly selfies. Today, they are a part of our cell phone culture. And I want to share my five favorite tips on how to rock them! Read more

When it comes to Latinos in fashion, you can’t help but think of designers like Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, or even Isabel Toledo. They may be the biggest names in fashion today, but do you ever think about how they got their start? This is why I love events like Latino Fashion Week (LFW). They are created to introduce us to emerging and talented Latino designers. Fresh off their Dallas show, LFW came to Los Angeles! I was invited on behalf of the new Tu Vida app, to check out and share my experience. Read more

But, instead listen to their heart and thrive in their own personal style. I’d like to think I’m one of those women. Someone who doesn’t let fashion dictate who they are, but rather just let’s it inspire them. Read more
A few months ago, when I attended the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Super Saturday event, I was really happy to see that Rachel Pally was there supporting the cause. I was even more excited when I saw that she was selling pieces from her White Label Collection—Rachel Pally plus size line. I was immediately drawn to this dress.
