My Nightly Beauty Routine

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with PONDS® and Latina Bloggers Connect.

When I was younger, I was that girl who always fell asleep with her makeup on…always. As I got older, I learned about how important it is to take off that makeup before heading to bed. Today, I not only take off my makeup, but I have a nightly beauty routine before I get those much needed zzzzzzzz’s. I not only sleep better, but I wake up with more radiant and refreshed skin. Pond’s sent me a few products to add my already existing routine and they fit in quite nicely! Read more

Conffianz / Skin Care Giveaway

One thing I’ve learned about our skin is that it’s not universal. There are so many different types and combinations. Even our ethnicity plays a part. Conffianz, a brand new skincare line targeted towards Latinas, knows all about our challenges. Read more

Oh, You are So Worth It! / Giveaway (Closed)

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and L’Oreal Paris.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know how adamant I am about being proud of who you are. This means inside and out my loves. There are so many different things that make me who I am and being Latina is one of my favorites. I come from a long line of amazing and strong women—like my mom. Growing up, she not only inspired me to be whatever I wanted, but even today she continues to support me no matter what I do. Read more

Say Goodbye to Dry Winter Hands

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Neutrogena.

I know I’ve said a million times how much I love colder weather. Of course, there are some downsides to it. One that I honestly can not stand is what it does to my hands. I am that person who is tortured with dry, cracking, and itchy hands in the winter. Yup, that’s me. My big ol’ paws (courtesy of my dad and I wouldn’t have it any other way) are not happy when dealing with chilly weather. I can happily say goodbye to the torture because I’ve discovered Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream and took their 7-day challenge. Read more

This is my Makeup Life (and All My Fails)

It’s no secret that I’m not a makeup professional. I wasn’t even allowed to wear makeup until I was 17, although that didn’t stop me from wearing it at school and taking it off before I got home. My mom never showed me how to wear it and what not to do. In fact, my makeup life has been one stumbling block after another. Learning as I go. Read more

Stressed Out Skin? Take the Skin Wellbeing Survey

When it comes to our skincare, there are so many things to take into consideration. But, do you ever think about your skin’s wellness? It’s not only about what you’re putting on your face and into your body, but it’s also how you’re emotionally treating your skin. I was recently invited to the #NoMakeupWakeup event with Simple Skincare and I had a chance to meet one of their experts Dr. Josie Howard. We discussed the relationship between stress, emotional wellbeing, and skin health (psychodermatology). We were asked to take her Skin Wellbeing Survey and I just knew I had to share it with all of you! Read more

I’m one of those people who love it, but am too lazy and not skilled enough to do it myself. Then I was contacted to see if I’d like to try out the “As Seen on TV” Hot Designs Nail Art Pens. Duh…uh…yeah! Read more

Beauty Buzz: Epic Blend Lip Balm

Finding the right lip balm can kind of be a pain in the butt for me. I’m not super picky, I just want one that works. I need moisturized lips, that aren’t sticky, too fragrant, and doesn’t need to be reapplied every hour. One that’s colorless and can be applied under my lipstick if needed. Is that too much to ask? Nope! I’ve found that one and my lips are super excited about it. Read more

And I want to share my five favorite tips on how to rock them! Read more
