I'm so excited to be partnering up with Lola Shoetique on today's post. Considering that I have always looked up to the brand (as one to work with in my list of brands to partner with) I was beyond excited when they released their clothing collection. So, being able to infuse my own personal style into a collaboration together was a dream achieved!

I am currently in Atlanta and staying in the beautiful down town area ready to ring in 2017 in style (but, of course). Even though it is colder over here, this faux fur multi colored coat is one of the pieces I'll be wearing to ring in the new year. However, if I were back home in Miami I think I'd be wearing this whole entire look instead (since it's always humid- you can get away with wearing a romper). I've always thought of New Years to be the most glam out of all holidays, so this multi way romper is the perfect choice! Yes, you read right....Multi way. This unique piece is one of my favorites because you are able to adjust the top to whichever style you like. For example: criss - cross, halter, one shoulder, etc. These multi way styles have been a huge trend to close out 2016.

The best wishes to you on this upcoming year, and Happy New Year beauties!

On the road for the holidays with Dove

 I can't believe Christmas week is among us, like where did this year go? Today I have teamed up with Dove as I share my holiday road trip plans with a very special essential in my duffle bag, Dove's Dry Spray.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dove and WeAllGrow Latina Network. The opinions and text are all mine.

I couldn't help but wear my "ugly Christmas sweater" (I'm so obsessed with cats) meanwhile packing my bags and gifts for this weeks upcoming trip. Every year during this special time, my family always makes it a point to travel all together. This year we planned to do something a little different than our norm. We are flying directly to Tennessee for three days where we booked a beautiful home in the mountains for some family bonding. After, we are taking a road trip down to the city of Atlanta where we will spend the rest of the vacation and welcome in the new year! 

As for the road trip essentials (and any traveling essential overall) I never fail to pack in my Dove Dry Spray. The Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant goes on instantly dry and provides 48 hours of odor and wetness protection with all the care of Dove. Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant contains ¼ moisturizers and leaves skin softer and smoother. I have totally raved about this product before, but when I received the new scents I obsessed even more (the soothing chamomile scent is my favorite). I have been solely using the Dry Spray for about a year now, and I haven't changed products since. 

Traveling throughout the holiday season is always rushed and on the go for me. So, from packing my luggage and making sure I remembered to take everything I needed, the Dove Dry Spray is a major must have for me.  I just shake, spray, and go!

What are your holiday plans?!

Until next post,



Lips for the Holidays with Neutrogena

Throughout the holiday season, I like to be on the (extra) glam side. Bringing out the sparkly eye shadows and red lipsticks are a few of my favorite items to go to during this time, but this year I have opted out for a different look (since I always like to switch it up & try new things)

Today I have teamed up with Neutrogena & Walmart to bring you some of my go -to  lip looks for this holiday. Lately, I've just been into bold eyes & neutral lip tones so I picked up three of my favorite shades in the Moisture Smooth Color Sticks collection. With a wide variety of 16 total shades to pick from, selecting my top three was difficult but I knew I wanted to stick to the neutrals!

Like I said above, I really wanted to stick to smokey eyes, and some neutral toned lips. After testing these moisture sticks out, I was really impressed! I've never been a fan of glossy lips, but this product gives you full moisture (without that intense gloss look) and the colors actually stay on. Plus, during a holiday party the last detail we want to worry about is our lipstick smudging off after drinking or eating.


My favorite part of coming back home from the holiday festivities (or just anything in general) is taking off my full face of makeup! For years now, I have been using the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. Not only do they provide full moisture upon the removal of the makeup,  but they also soothe and fully remove every last bit of product. Every morning when I wake up, I feel such a difference in my skin after using these (they're a MAJOR holy grail product for me)

Midnight Romance with Ralph Lauren


Photography: Christine Michelle

Fragrances have always been such a personal touch to my everyday life. I can pretty much assume that everyone has experienced a fragrance at one point that maybe reminded them of someone, a place, and even a situation they've been in.

Today I have partnered with Ralph Lauren on their "Romance" campaign for the holidays. Funny enough, Ralph Lauren's signature women scent Romance has always topped my list of favorites. Until.....Midnight Romance was released. Midnight Romance is definitely the softer (but still strong) version of the brands' original best seller. The dark vanilla & peony in this fragrance is the perfect mix for a wearable day time and special occasion fragrance, it's so versatile! With that said, there's a close group of individuals in my life that I truly love like; family, friends, and a significant other. Not only does the name of the perfume constantly remind me of them when I wear it, but it reminds me that I am loved (that's what certain perfumes can do - cheesy, I know).


Anyways, fun fact: during the holiday season and even around any type of special occasion like birthdays, the number one gifted item always happens to be a fragrance. However, from personal experience it's always good to know the person well before gifting them a perfume or cologne. We all know how horrible it is having to accept a fragrance we actually hate!

I have linked above Midnight Romance along with its original version and even some fun holiday sets you can click on to direct direction to the site!

My Road Trip with Toyota

 Being born & raised in Miami, the Cuban culture is inevitable. The aroma coming from my abuela's kitchen and the usual 3pm "cafecito"brings back so many sweet memories of having been raised in a Cuban family. So, today I wanted to share the nostalgic road trip I took alongside Toyota to Key West, FL.

Key West is filled with some of the most iconic spots for the Cuban community in Miami, so I wanted to visit my top three picks in the new 2017 Corolla.

Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (“Toyota”) provided me with compensation and use of a Corolla for a short period of time. The opinions I have shared about this vehicle are my own.

First stop.....

1. Cuban Coffee Queen

 Early morning road trip stops call for a café con leche at Cuban Coffee Queen.

 2. Southern Most Point to Cuba

Only 90 miles to Cuba.....

3. San Carlos Cuban Museum

A beautiful museum exhibiting some of Cuba's best attributes & real stories straight from Cuban tour guides.

Riding around with the sun roof opened on a breezy day, I can say the Corolla was such a great asset to a fun Cuban inspired road trip.

My favorite part of taking a trip in the Corolla, was how customizable everything in the car was. From the blue trimmed faux leather seats, to the navigation, and the Bluetooth reading my incoming texts to me (which helps prevent texting and driving).

Major thank you the team over at West Kendall Toyota

"Looks Americanita, but feels Cubanita"

Perfect Never with Reebok

As women, we often urge to find perfection within our selves and in our daily physical appearance. This society has taught us to focus only on our flaws, and hate them. Today and for some months to come I will be partnering up with Reebok Women and their "Perfect Never" campaign to spread the message that perfection shouldn't always be a goal, but rather focusing to be a stronger and healthier version of our self should be.

As some of you have noticed, within the past months I have grown to be slimmer. Some of you have also asked me questions regarding what I'm doing (as per my daily diet) and how changing up my eating habits has helped me. For today's post, I'd like to share some tips that work for me and since my most recent fitness and lifestyle posts have been some of your favorites, I wanted to post some more!

Keep in mind, these are just tips that have worked for my body and it may not work for everyone. The goal is to always find something that you are comfortable with.

1. I have not stepped foot in a gym in the longest time. I can't remember when was the last time I worked out at a gym on my own. Spending countless hours in the gym isn't the only way to see results.

2. Changing your eating habits is a lifestyle change, not a diet. I decided that I wanted to educate myself and do all the research I could regarding the foods we intake. For a certain amount of time, I was feeling sick to my stomach everyday! I decided I wanted to make a change, and see if that would help my stomach issues - and it sure did!

3. Results don't happen over night, so don't get discouraged. I have slowly been changing to a vegetarian lifestyle and it has definitely taken me some time to get adjusted to everything. I'd day after six months of doing so, I have felt so much better!

4. Embrace your body flaws, and work on them (the healthy way) if those flaws are an insecurity.

You were already created to perfection, never give up striving.
