My Red Carpet Look with JCPenney

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.

Not just for kids: Boogie Wipes + dairy detox

Not just for kids: Boogie Wipes + dairy detox

One Whole30 detox symptom that reared its ugly head once again had to do with my nose, in the form of the crunchiest, stickiest boogers on the walls of my nose. Withdrawing from dairy is no joke, guys. Boogie Wipes were a lifesaver for this round of Whole 30.
