TREND ALERT: DO YOU CROP TOP?

    It’s the old age question when it comes to fashion, is there a cut off age for wearing crop tops? Growing up in a Cuban household (at least in mine), unless I was at the beach, showing my midriff was a no no. It was deemed too revealing, not age appropriate, and risqué….

TREND ALERT: RED WHITE AND BLUE WITH A TWIST

Happy Weekend, squeezers! It’s about that time to start gearing up for America’s BIG birthday, as families and friends pack up the car, get on a plane, or even maybe a train, to head to beaches, BBQs, and celebrations all over the country to celebrate the old red, white and blue.  The grocery stores are…

TREND ALERT: ROLLING OUT OF BED

‘I woke up like this.’ We’ve heard the popular expression time and time again and what brings it to life in its truest form, is the oddly-popular-yet-hard-to-accept, pajama trend. Sleepwear has gotten the street style treatment and more and more people (myself included) are jumping on the bandwagon.  I’ll admit- I was VERY hesitant about…

TREND ALERT: PASTEL PERFECTION

Good Evening squeezers! I hope you had an eventful, restful, and awesome weekend! I spent mine doing some writing, getting ready for a segment tomorrow, and spending time with my kiddos and husband (which means schlepping from birthday parties and playdates and some unwinding with wine in between).  It’s been a little bit since I’ve…

How a One Week Detox from Social Media was the Best Medicine

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to take a little voluntary break from social media. This wasn’t my first time shutting down the social media shop. Two years ago when my anxiety was at a very heightened point, I went dark for about seven months. I had no interest in being on social media,…

TREND ALERT: CHECKERED SPRING

Good Morning, Squeezers! Sending lots of love and gratitude your way, because if it weren’t for your support and comments, I wouldn’t be able to do this blog! So, a big THANK YOU! Like I promised, I have a new spring trend alert for you and I’m sure you saw this one for fall/winter, and…

SPRINGING INTO A NEW BIRTH YEAR LIKE…

Another birthday, another year older….or younger..depends on how you look at it. There are two types of people when it comes to aging- those that embrace age and welcome it with open arms (wrinkles included), and those that dread it like the plague. The thought of another year of getting older, closer to, well you…

TREND ALERT: SPOTTED IN 2018

Hello Squeezers! It’s Sunday night, and all my people are tucked away in their beds and it’s just me, my computer, and the last few chapters of Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri (if you haven’t seen this Oscar nominated flick, you MUST). I’m taking advantage of this rare quiet time to catch up on…

The Ramblings

It’s out with the old and in with the new; the cliche that sums up the end of another year and the start of new things to come! It’s true that every day is an opportunity to star afresh, to set goals, and basically just be a better human; but, there is something about the…

NY Style Map: Feeling a 90s Snap in NYC

I miss New York.  I miss everything about it. I miss wearing sweaters. I miss complaining about how cold it is and dreading that first pang of freezing temperature that hits your face when you walk out of your building. I miss waiting at the bus stop for the M79 (immortalized forever by Vampire Weekend). I miss…
