Skin Confidence After 30

Photography by: Angel Torres

It’s been a month since my 31st birthday and I can truly say I have never felt more comfortable on my own skin. I used to be very self-conscious about my body (always way too skinny) and about my skin (dealing with acne).

People say that after 30 your skin starts to act up and that wrinkles start making an appearance. According to the Good Housekeeping Study, some women get really concerned about aging and can end up paying $400 for an anti-wrinkle cream. However, you don’t have to go to that extreme to get great results.


How to wear sneakers at work and get away with it

As you guys already know, my middle name should be comfy. Ever since I realized that you could upgrade a comfortable piece, my life changed forever and I never went back to uncomfortable outfits- unless is a cute pair of shoes then I may consider it.


Bringing Color Back

Summer has been teasing Minnesota for about 2 weeks now and one of the things I enjoy the most is all the new pieces that I get to add to my wardrobe. I am learning to experiment with trends but also finding a twist to them to keep my comfy chic style.

One of the things I’ve been eager to add more to my wardrobe is color. I fell into this neutral color craze back in the fall. Don’t get me wrong, I think neutrals (specially blush) are a fool-proof wardrobe but with summer upon us a pop of color here and there feels appropriate.


Staying active and feeling good

As you guys know, this year I’ve been wanting to focus on staying active. I do not like to work out but since I lived in Austin I realized that doing something does improve my mood a lot. This year I was basically tricked by my friends to start working out and now I am hooked. But the only workout that I truly enjoy I found it here in Minneapolis and it is called Alchemy 365. It is a mix of power yoga for warm-ups and cool-downs and 10 mins of very intense actual workout (I call it soft core CrossFit).
