Hola chicos! Today i’m bringing you 3 all natural, super simple and inexpensive solutions for your skin care woes.

Latina’s, Music & Style |Who You Need To Know This Week!

Music is not just something you listen to on your way to work or while you’re cleaning the house. It’s something you put on to transport you to another place and time. It’s an influence that’s so big, marketers incorporated well known musical acts like Cardi B, Missy Elliot and Busta Rhymes in their Super Bowl commercials this year.

How I Wear Low Cut Shirts Without Spilling Out | Big Breasts Vs. V-Necks

Hola mis amores! I’d like come out and say that I have been a member of the Tig Bitties Committee since  the eighth grade. I fluctuate between a 36DD and a 34DDD in bra size depending on if I’ve gained or lost a few pounds and I can’t remember a time when I never had them. They weigh my upper body down, have caused some bras to dent my shoulders, and they feel like a burning anvil when mother nature decides to drop by on her monthly visits. So I guess you can say I have a love/hate relationship with my…

Fashion Has Brought the Past Back for Fall 2018

Paris Fashion Week just started and that means that Fashion Month is almost at an end. This season, we’ve seen fashion houses use the runway to further their creative expressions, like when Dolce & Gabbana used drones to showcase hand bags in Milan, Stella Nolasco models holding protest signs during her NYFW show and Dior being inspired by the 1968 uprisings in France. While the platform has advanced, fashion went back in time to the 17th Century in Europe, the 80’s and 90’s in America, and even all the way back to the primitive time of cavemen. Yellow plaid a la Clueless, baroque,…
