I have hyperpigmentation on my face and there’s really only one way to entirely get rid of it in one quick wave of a laser wand called Lumeca. The type of hyperpigmentation I have is called Melasma, which people show signs of for all different kinds of reasons from heat sensitivity to fluctuating hormones during pregnancy. Any type of hyperpigmentation is a pain in the butt because the brown spotting or discoloration that appears can be very aggressive and challenging to remove, lighten or even cover up with makeup.
Somehow someway, my partner and I wallpapered a corner wall in my new home without murdering each other. I’m not sure if this is a testament to our relationship or to how easy it is apply adhesive wallpaper, but either way, we did it in under 3 hours and it looks great! I kept seeing wallpaper styles popping up as a comeback trend in modern home décor so we pulled the trigger with a playful neutral-colored print figuring that if we didn’t like it, we’d just peel it right off. What happened is WE LOVED IT!
It doesn’t seem real but it is. I bought a home in Brooklyn and officially left Manhattan nearly 3 weeks ago. I want to say it all happened so fast, but it didn’t. It took about 1.5 years for me to start the process after realizing that my life was calling for change. The pandemic did factor into my decision a little, but after 20 years of living in the heart of Manhattan, I really wanted to settle down in a place I could call my own. That’s when the hunt began! This blog is a compilation of fun videos documenting my move and mental state leaving the big apple.
I love dressing up for Halloween but when Frida (my tiny brindle chihuahua) came into my life, everything changed because now group costumes were on the table. We don’t just dress up…we go all out! Last year we won my apartment building’s Halloween contest and couldn’t walk down the street without people jumping into pics with us. So in case you’re looking for some inspiration, here are 3 super fun costumes that are easy to create and everything can be purchased on Amazon.
By now you know that Frida, my 6 pound chihuahua, goes everywhere with me! Literally EVERYWHERE! We're going on two years of being inseparable and quite frankly I can't imagine going on vacation without her. So over the past (almost) 2 years, I've had to figure out trips that would also accommodate and most importantly welcome Frida.
WOW! Just wow. I don't even know where to begin!
I was featured on Hola! TV and I'm truly still pinching myself. In Hispanic TV & Entertainment, this is a big show and a really big deal. They did a feature about Madonna right before me. I'll follow right behind Madonna any day! I know it's in Spanish but if you turn on the subtitles / closed captions, you can read the translation and follow along. The interview includes a home tour, a bit about me, my career aspirations and quite simply 'how I made it in NYC'.
