Instagram Monday

Fall is here and I couldn’t be happier, although it’s still warm in L.A., the morning have been cold, giving me hope that the days will start to get cold too. I love maxis sand sandals, but I’m ready to trade those in for scarves and boots.

Although fall just started, I can already say that being invited to the Latina Magazine’s Hollywood Hot List party was a huge highlight!

If at the end of the day, you can say you have the best friends you could ever be blessed with, then life is good.

Instadiary: H2O Music Festival + Becky G Meet & Greet

A few weeks ago, thanks to COVERGIRL, I attended Univisions H2O Music Festival in downtown LA with my fellow Latina beauty bloggers and had the BEST time! The line-up was a mix of English and Spanish artists that included Pitbull, A Tribe Called Quest and COVERGIRL’s newest face, Becky G. There were many more, but I was most excited to see those three. Although I’m a new Becky G fan, I can help but admire the 16-year-old Mexican-American from the Los Angeles area (Inglewood). I was able to meet her at the COVERGIRL tent and I was only able to exchange a few words with her, but she seems like a very humble down to earth girl. I think having her as the new COVERGIRL with really open up their demographic.

It was no surprise her makeup looks flawless (being a COVERGIRL and all, haha) and here I have how you can recreate her look! I loveed the light and natural festival look she was rocking. A great look for what left of summer.

Becky G’s look was inspired by the city of Los Angeles, where she grew up and calls home. The city inspires her lyrics and cool beats, but most of all her style. The young COVERGIRL is known for her urban and fun style, and that was the inspiration behind the GLAM makeup she rocked for her performance at the H20 Music Festival.  Her look consisted of bold gold eyes and soft pink lips that pop!

How to Recreate the look COVERGIRL Becky G, Rocked at Univision’s H20 Music Festival

Face

Start out by applying COVERGIRL Clean Whipped Crème Foundation. To accent the cheek bones apply COVERGIRL Clean Glow Blush in Roses #100.

Eyes

Apply the COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pots in Charcoal # 335 around the crest. Then use the Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Gold Flame #330 to add gold shimmer to the look. Then apply the Ink It! in Black Ink # 230 by making a thick line that will make your eye pop! Finish this eye look by adding volume to your eyelashes for a bold look, with Flamed Out Mascara in Very Black

Lips

Finish the look with a soft nude, pinkish lip with first applying COVERGIRL Lip Perfection in Spellbound #325 and then the COVERGIRL Smoochies in Sweet Tweet # 255 on top.

I always say I’m going to do an Instagram post every week, next thing I know, they only happen about once a month. But what a fun month it’s been! Summer is slowly coming to close and while I’m sad to see it go, I’m ready for cold nights, boots and knits. I plan on making the most of this month and going to the beach a few more times and maybe squeeze a camping trip.

How are you enjoying the last month of summer?

Snapshots: Summer Has Arrived

It’s officially summer in LA and the city is bursting at the seams. As much as I love the colder seasons, summer is when Los Angeles is most alive. From outdoor movies, pool parties, music festivals and food festivals there is always something exciting todo. I love this city. Here’s to a fun filled summer with tons of work and tons of play.

The last couple weeks have been good, I can’t complain. A birthday, tons of celebrating and getting to preview a new plus size collection. The cherry on top was getting to wear my new swimsuit and embracing my curves and body. There are SO many plus size swim options, that there is no excuse for you to be in anything but an adorable bikini or a classy onc piece.

Have a wonderful weekend and make sure you’re following me on Instagram!

Tattoo Inspiration

Tattoos are one of the most amazing forms of expression and I’m addicted to them. I have five and plan on getting tons more, I have plenty of ideas of tattoos that I want, but find myself frequently looking for more inspiration. This week has been a little nuts (hence my lack of blogging), but I have some good stuff coming next week, so hang tight, ladies! All images are on my Tattoo Inspiration board on Pinterest, make sure you’re following me for tons of fashion, beauty, animals, food and oh so much more pins and inspiration. ❤

Urban 1972 + Im Curvy

Last week I was invited to Urban 1972’s headquarters to preview their new summer collection and play dress-up with some of my favorite blogger babes like Marla from Marlita on the Run and Emily from Emmy J. I was a little nervous about going to the event in fear  they may not have anything in my size. When I arrived I was blown away to find that Urban 1972 had just launched their plus size brand IM Curvy.

Guess who was the first blogger to give the line a spin? 🙂 I was in love with the leggings you see the the photos, and like all leggings, they were super comfy. I’m a huge fan of textured tights and leggings and I did not want to take these off! The dress was also my favorite. It was comfortable and perfect for a night out with the girls or maybe even a Birthday. I love the mini turtle neck and I adore the double slits.

The following day, I clicked over to the newly launched Im Curvy site and was elated to see an array of current trends in the online store, ranging from a 1X to 3X. As a curvy girl, sometimes, I feel I’m not able to enjoy trends as much as regular sized woman because things simply don’t come in my size or doesn’t fit my body right. I was stoked to see trends such as cutout dresses, comic tees and crop tops, all in larger sizes.

Don’t be afraid to push the “standard” limits of what’s expected of plus size women, don’t be afraid to push your limits. Do what feels right and what you’re comfortable with and know that style has no size.

Weekend two of Coachella just wrapped up and I can’t help but just a bit empty inside, but summer is around the corner which means summer concerts!

This year was a great year, beside the sandstorm, but other than that Coachella 2013 was a success and I cannot wait to go back next year! Here is my Instagram round up from my Coachella weekend!

I have some VERY good news coming this week that has to do with ME and doing social media for a VERY cool brand while at Coachella! If you’re going, I’d love to hear from you! I’ll be there weekend one!
