Book Review | Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

One of my resolutions for 2018 was to read for recreational purposes. I swear, I cannot remember the last time I read a novel without putting it down (maybe Harry Potter in the 5th grade). I missed that feeling of being so immersed into a good book and the joy of being captivated by all…

National Coffee Day |Benefits of Coffee

In honor of #NationalCoffeeDay, I decided to dedicate a blog post to my liquid bestie, COFFEE. My relationship with coffee started at 13. I was obsessed with Starbucks’ Frappucinos and would have about three Caramel Fraps per week. After high school, I went from basic to healthy and nixed liquid sugar from my list. (Oh,…

Must Read | Four Agreements For A Happy Life

I’m obsessed with The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. I first discovered this book 5 years ago while working at a Yogaworks Studio in Los Angeles.  It was exactly what I was ready to learn at time and what I always come back to when I am not feeling 100% myself and I…

Bright Smile | Oil Pulling

Ok, first thing is first: this is gross. But it works! Oil pulling is a natural organic way to brighten your smile and whiten your teeth. It also has other benefits such as preventing tooth decay, gingivitis, bad breath and cavities! (good news for my sweet tooth 😋) I wanted to try oil pulling for different…

Siempre Mujer Magazine Contest

A few months back, I went to New York for a fun secret photoshoot with Siempre Mujer Magazine. Siempre Mujer is one of the leading magazines for Latinas in the U.S, and to be chosen as one of the finalists for their #MusaSiempreMujer cover girl contest was such an HONOR! I had never visited New…

Fun Day at Malibu Wines

I recently turned 26, and instead of having a mental quarter life meltdown, I invited my close friends and my beau for a day of wine savoring and drinking at Malibu Wines.  I had been here once before for a close friend’s birthday, but for less than two hours. I didn’t get to enjoy the…

Start Your Day by Setting Your Intention

“The beginning of your day is a fantastic place to plant the seed”- Kathryn Budig

Waking up each morning in a good mood doesn’t come naturally to everyone, including me. Some of us want to keep sleeping, even if we have a long day ahead and already slept more than 8 hours (that’s me!) or wake up in a groggy mood because we didn’t get enough rest (that’s usually everyone else I know). There are some days when I can wake up and kickass, but there are also a lot of days where I wish I had a personal valet to get me out of my bed vortex.

Going With the Flow & Embracing the Uncertainty

It’s been a little over a month of no longer being a student and the most valuable lesson I’ve learned so far is to embrace the uncertainty of my “journey”(“Don’t stop believing”). I came to the realization that we as humans, no matter where we are in life, don’t really ever know what the french is…

Learning to receive

After a three-month hiatus, I am finally back in cyberspace and ready to blog my life away (kinda)! So here we go..first blog post as a college graduate.. I always thought my last semester of college was going to be a breeze. Little did I know, I’d end up crying actual tears. A 27-page thesis…

Sunday Series| The Chakras: The Throat Chakra

I like to think of this chakra as the point where trust and communication meet. Many times we don’t speak our truth. We either say things we do not mean, or things we believe are what others want to hear. This used to happen to me all the time while growing up. I had a…
