THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THE MAGIC CITY

Last month, I jumped on a plane to Miami for work purposes and I was able to squeeze in some time alone and time in the sun while I was there. People often ask me, “Do you miss Miami?” And the answer is yes. Of course I do! If you would have asked me this…

LITTLE BO BROOKLYN

Okay, I have SO. MANY. FEELS on this dress and I’m so excited to share these photos with you. First off, kudos to Vanessa Mc Donald Ryan of VMR Media, for this shoot! Fun fact. Vanessa and I met many moons ago as producers on the red carpet. She was working for E! and I…

THE PERKS OF A MILESTONE BIRTHDAY

Some birthdays tend to bring more celebrations than others. That’s not to say every other birthday is not worth celebrating, but as you get older little fan fare is given to those- a cake, a dinner, maybe some friends over. Then there are the BIG birthdays- 15 (if you’re Hispanic), 16, 21, 30, 40, etc.-…

FEELING RIGHT AT HOME

It’s been four months since our big move from Miami to Brooklyn, and honestly, it feels like I’ve been here longer, almost like I never left. It’s funny how some places instantly feel like home to you. Yes, I’ve lived here before and I always felt like NY was home, but sometimes you visit certain…

A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW

Things can look a whole lot different when you change your perspective. We’ve recently been teaching Maya how changing our perspective, or how we look at something a different way, can really transform our thoughts, experiences, and even our outlook. I’ll share an example, which the whole principal can be applied to just about anything….

DECODING DENIM

For many years, I thought that a good pair of jeans were only ‘good’ if they cost over $100. Boy, was I wrong and broke. That’s not to say there are not some quality denim brands out there with fantastic jeans and a hefty price tag. If you love them and are loyal to a…

PINK IS IN THE BUILDING

Pink is POPPIN! Yes, the color of the season is really making head turns and making a statement in the wardrobe department and I’m all here for it! I think a whole lot of loud, fun, and vibrant is much needed on the style menu, considering the year we’ve had, and pink is going to…

CHANGING SEASONS

I’ve been feeling the coming of spring in the last couple of days and I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for a new season! This is one of the things I love about living in New York- experiencing winter, spring, summer, and fall in all its full glory. I have tired…

RECOVERY ONE YEAR LATER

Nothing is more cliche than the expression, ‘Time flies!’ But there are no truer words because it seems that in a blink of an eye, months and years can pass in a flash. It’s been a year since my tummy tuck surgery and it feels like it happened just mere weeks ago. I recently went…

GREAT EXPECTATIONS

We made it! We’re hanging by scotch tape and safety pins, but we made it out of 2020 and hastily and hesitantly into the arms of 2021. What will it bring? Who the heck knows. The better question is, what will WE bring to it? The word ‘expectations’ comes to mind. I’ve mentioned in the…
