All eyes on female creatives: The pros and cons


Photography by: Angel Torres

As you all know I work as an art director at Target. What does that mean? Well, I get to create advertising campaign for target that include fun shoots and I get to go to LA and NY quite often. I say am an art director by day and a blogger by night and weekends but the truth is that art direction takes over my life most of the time whether I want it or not, it’s just who I am.

I spend most of my time in front of the computer for both my job and blogging. Lately I have been noticing that my eyes are taking a toll from all this years in front of screens but about a month ago I started using this Phonetics Eyewear glasses and I have noticed a huge difference! I don’t have a prescription and you don’t need a prescription to get them. They are just to alleviate digital eyestrain but if you need a prescription you can apply it to them. Who knew that was a thing right? They have helped a lot and I literally get a compliment about them almost every day! Use the code FRIENDS to get 10% off!

1st Wedding Anniversary: Trip to Denver, CO


Photography by: Angel Torres

We had the chance to visit Denver for our first-year anniversary this past September. While we were hoping to get more of the fall in the mountains weather, we were surprised to have an 87F almost every day. I guess I associated Denver with colder weather? The mountains on the other hand were crisp and chilly and we just loved it. No snow, tho. So that was a bit of a bummer.

None the less, Colorado was a magical place to go visit. Very unexpected for us since we always (or rather I) want to go to a beach destination. But this year with somewhat of a budget restriction and being such a special celebration I really wanted to go to a place that would be memorable and unique. We had the luck to partner up with Visit Denver who helped us go to amazing places like the Red Rocks Park and The Denver Botanic Gardens. Another amazing sponsor for our trip was Mazda; who lent us the new Mazda 3 hatchback. We absolutely LOVED the car and it was the perfect size for the small road trip we wanted to make from Denver to Breckenridge.

Me Time On a Budget


Photography by: Angel Torres

I was asked by Casousele to participate in the #HygroCotton campaign, sponsored by Welspun. Although I have been compensated, all opinion are my own. 

Sometimes life gets so hectic that we forget to take care of ourselves. But we have to remember that we are important too and if we are not ok then things will not be ok. This is why it is so important to take some time off even if it’s at home to pamper ourselves. I know that I am guilty of overworking myself. Between the blog and my day job, I literally have no time off and the few hours that I do have free I try to spend them with my hubby.

This past summer went by so fast and so many things happened that I really wanted to pamper myself without any pricey fancy spas. Don’t get me wrong I would love to but right now we are on a tight budget. So, I decided to do my own spa at home. This easy 7 item-relaxing session that requires nothing fancy and stuff that you probably have at home.

The Secret Side of Life in Minnesota


Photography by: Angel Torres

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Culvers. The opinions and text are all mine.

To a lot of people, they first (and only) thing that comes to mind when it comes to Minnesota is COLD and it all fairness that is exactly what I thought of it too. But then life moved us here and after my first summer here my mind is completely blown.

From the cheese curds, to the lakes and everything in between now I realize why people stay here just because of the summer. It is hard to put it into words, you truly have to live it to understand it. One thing that captivated me from the beginning about this place was that regardless of the weather, life does not stop.
