My Red Carpet Look with JCPenney

I flew out to Miami to experience Hispanicize and the 2017 TECLA Awards. What was waiting for me? A glamorous afternoon of being styled for the Tecla’s, complete with hair and makeup did at JCPenney.

Netflix: Cuddle Game Too Strong

I spent the Thanksgiving holidays at home with my babies doing absolutely nothing but snuggling on the sofa, eating leftovers (my mama’s stuffing is to die for) and watching Netflix. Why do I feel so guilty? Doing thangs and crossing…
