Can I be her? Yes?…

6 Step Beauty Routine Every Latina Needs This Holiday!

Hola mis amores 💖 I know this holiday skin care routine seems a little random (Like, it’s FEBRUARY. Christmas was a month ago…) Pero, this was actually posted in December on Hermosaz.com and I wanted to bring it over here because there’s going to be many more to come! I’ve partnered up with Hermosaz.com to bring beauty and fashion content to a bigger Latina audience AND I’M SO ESSCITED 😩 Everything that I post in this category will have been originally featured on another site, like Hermosaz.com or any other partnership’s i’m going to be involved in (fingers crossed 🤞🏼) So enjoy…

Easy Vegan Guava & Cheese Pastries | Pastelitos de Guayaba y Queso

Hello everyone and FELIZ AÑO NUEVO! I’m so excited to take on 2018 and show you guys the content I’ve been coming up with! Get ready for a year full of outfit guides, beauty tips and make up looks that’ll keep you glowing harding than Cardi B in 2017! All of this finessing makes me super hungry and I’ve been missing Miami like crazy lately. Mainly because NYC has been colder than a freezer and I…just…can’t. I was inspired to whip up my favorite Cuban treat, pastelitos de guayaba y queso (guava and cheese pastries) and after perusing Pinterest I…

Statement Jewelry: What To Own & How To Wear It

Hola Chicas, Ever since I can remember the women in my family have always worn the same pieces of jewelry, no matter the occasion! Through casual dinners, weddings and family portraits I’ve seen the same gold hoops and name plate necklaces pop up everywhere. The tradition has stayed with me as even I wear the same earrings and necklaces everywhere I go because I feel naked without them. I can leave the house with no makeup, hair up in a bun and still feel dressed up with just my jewels on. Some of my pieces are sentimental hand me downs,…

Welcoming Fall in Middlefield, Connecticut

It’s officially Fall! But the jacket, thigh highs and chunky sweaters are on hold in the Northeast until the weather stops feeling like it’s the middle of July. Even so, the warmth is a blessing in disguise because I was able to spend all day outside last Sunday in Middlefield and Middletown, Connecticut. My boyfriend and I decided to go pumpkin picking and grabbed a few peaches for a tart I’d like to make (If all goes well I’ll have it up on the blog!). We then went to a nearby waterfall which was like something out of a story…

OOTD: Summer Nights in the City

Hola mis amores! I hope you’ve enjoyed your summer thus far. The chilly nights and brisk mornings are starting to return to the city and I can’t wait for Fall! But before we give up our sleeveless shirts for some sweater dresses and tights, I’d like to share with you some outfit ideas that’ll be sure to impress while keeping you cool and collected this Summer. 1 PM at The Highline Park: When I go out with my boyfriend Eddie for a day of exploring and bar hopping in Chelsea, I like to be cute and comfortable. I paired peach…

Have A Drink: Peachy Rosé Sangria

The BBQ grills are firing up, parks are being filled with hammocks and tents, and the sound of reggae hits are filling the air. Summer has arrived and we are more than eager to fulfill our Vitamin D deficit by soaking up all that the warm weather has to offer. I think the most important things we need to remember to bring with us on hot sunny days are: Sunscreen A cold drink Los parques están llenos de hamacas y parrillas de barbacoa, y el sonido de los éxitos de reggae están llenando el aire. El verano ha llegado y estamos…

Summer Luvin’

Hello everyone, and hellooooo Summer! I’ve been waiting all year for these 3 months of heat to wash a hot and humid wave over New York City, making us shed our Winter layers and revel in all that the city offers under the sun. Summer whispers its way to us starting with the Mister Softee jingle bouncing off the walls of a crowded block, to kids lighting up firecrackers on the streets leading up to the Fourth of July. Then, the chill that kept most of us indoors all winter has gone and a hot breeze welcomes you to buy…
