Being Latina and Living in Minnesota



Photography by: Emily Voss

We should start from the beginning and you are probably asking why in the world do I live in Minnesota? Well, about a year and eight months ago a week before my wedding I flew out here for an interview at my dream job. In comes Target. On my wedding day at exactly 1 am (because I could not sleep) I signed and accepted a letter that I knew it was going to change my life as I knew it. And boy it did!

Not only I was starting life as a married woman but also I was yet again starting from scratch at a new state (yup, this is my second time around). A state completely the oposite to what I had known at that point in my life, and basically I didn't know anything else about it besides IT IS COLD. I was terrorized, but the thought of finally working at my dream job and building my life with my husband at a new place seem pretty exciting at the time.

The Museum Of Ice Cream Miami: The Power Of Imagination

A little over a month ago while we went back to Miami, my hubby and I had the chance to check out the Museum Of Ice Cream in Miami Beach. Oh what a magical place it was! 😍 It truly was everything I thought it was going to be and then some.

My Take On Corporate Dressing

You all know that I don't dress up for work. I dress up for event, and those are blogger events which are very different from "regular people" definition of dressing up.

I was invited to attend a Diversity & Inclusion conference in Las Vegas last week. Maybe you were following me along on my Instagram stories, maybe you weren't. To give you a little background; I am a creative person and the thought of dressing up literally makes my skin crawl. Have you been there? when thinking corporate dressing is as boring as a gray or black pantsuit and thats about all you get to wear all week long? Gross!

My Relationship With Sunscreen

Now that I’m back from Miami with a sun kissed tan, it really made me think about how I treat sun skincare as a whole. Not only because I wanted a tan (after hibernation for 6 months) but also because I became very aware of it a few years back.

I am not going to lie, I’ve been pretty reckless with my skin. I used to be the girl who would go a couple of times a week to the tanning salon to lay on a tanning bed back in high school. I KNOW! IT WAS AWFUL! I did it for a couple of years until I moved, and my tanning salon was not close to me anymore- Thank God! I truly can’t even imagine all the damage I caused to y skin and how many years I added to my appearance just because I wanted to be super tanned.
