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.
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.

It's safe to say this regimen was targeted for 40+ skin but I don't know, I feel like I would've used this exact combination of products back in my 20's too as my skin hasn't changed drastically. I've always had sensitive skin and dry skin.

By now you’ve definitely heard of eyebrow lamination where an esthetician applies a semi-permanent solution to your brows to straighten them and give them more texture. It’s become so popular that DIY lamination videos top Tiktok and Instagram as some of the most watched tutorials. The result is fuller, fluffier and longer looking brows, and on most people the results lasts a few months.
