My Weird Rituals | Vision Boards

how to make a vision boardOne of my favorite things in the whole world are vision boards. I love being able to plan my future by way of visualization. As we learned in last week’s “weird rituals”, the mind is a powerful thing. So in order for a vision board to actually work, you need to believe in its power. Continue Reading

My Weird Rituals | Tarot Cards

tarot cardsFor the first time ever I had my tarot cards read for the entire year. That’s right, 1 hour and 15 minutes later and my future was all laid out for me. And I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

I think much of that was due in part to the fact I went into the reading with a very positive outlook. Despite how uneventful 2017 was, I feel very strongly about 2018. I can’t explain it but I just have a feeling it’s going to be a great year… Continue Reading

NAB Year in Review: What Happened & What’s Coming in 2018

not another blonde new yearWhile I watched just about every blogger’s Instagram story about how AMAZING their 2017 was, I have to say I felt pretty inadequate (one of the many downsides to social media). Unlike my fellow blogger babes, I did not jet-set to some private island in the Caribbean or drink the finest wine in Italy, nor did my clothing line sell out (spoiler alert: I don’t have a clothing line).

Holiday Gifts Bloggers Should Be Talking About, But Aren’t

HOLIDAY GIFTS BLOGGERS SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUTI really wish more bloggers talked about the philanthropic holiday gifts you can give instead of the same overpriced stuff that lasts one season. I mean, as bloggers we have the power to influence far beyond the clothing we wear or the food we eat. We can influence how people live their lives so why not influence them for the greater good?

Confession: I’m Not Grateful

But as it turns out, what I thought was practicing gratitude wasn’t actually the case. Continue Reading

A PSA to the Ladies: Stop Apologizing

nyc fashion bloggerIt’s come to my attention the obsessive apology-driven world we live in. Maybe it’s just me, but I really feel like we all apologize far too much, like way too much, especially if you’re a woman.

I was walking the other day and I ran into this woman and she goes “Oh, I’m so sorry!” and I thought, ‘What? You’re sorry? I ran into you lady!’

So this is my PSA to all the other ladies out there STOP SAYING YOU’RE SORRY! Continue Reading

Why You Shouldn’t Try to “Do It All” AKA Realizing Your Own Limits

zara bloggerThe other day I was talking to my smart, funny, charming, sweet, caring boyfriend Patricio and I was basically complaining about not having enough time to do things. Considering I preach just the opposite (you DO in fact have time to do things, you just choose not to do them), it goes to show we all have our off days. Anyway, I was saying how I’d love to learn graphic design, web design, and video editing sounds easy for some but I found it’s pretty time consuming and to do what I want to do would take years.

Bathing Suits for Big Booty Babes

bathing suits for big buttsI feel like I’m a pretty straight forward shopper. I see something I like, I pick my size, and it usually fits like a glove. But not when it comes to bathing suits and jeans – they’re pretty much my worst nightmare. Please tell me I’m not alone? Continue Reading
