Collagen Chemistry: Better Late Than Never to Jump on This Train

**Disclaimer: I am writing this with collagen products all over my face, LOL. . Ever since I was in high school playing soccer I would always say to my teammates ‘don’t squint, it will give you wrinkles’ - as I’m doing my absolute best not to squint while the ball is coming for my head…. I did + do NOT want wrinkles + surprise I’m beginning to notice the inevitable lines on my forehead. I hate those damn lines! You know the ones when we raise our eyebrows to do our mascara or the RBF look-yeah those ones. . Well, I have been bound + determined to make them disappear. I started to read different blog posts, website reviews, in...

Serious Smoothie Situation: Prep that Sh*t

All this talk of ‘new year, new me’ has me conflicted. I really like me, + I don’t want a new me, but what about new year revamped me, I can dig that. I’m not the healthiest person on the planet, let’s just get that straight. I love a good In n Out burger, but I try. Sometimes being healthy just feels like such a damn task, but really its not. It took some time, trial + error to figure this all out. Now, I love a good dinner prep for the week + taking a few extra minutes out of my day to prepare my lunch for work instead of grabbing any + every (yes I mean every) thing. ....

SKIN IS IN: Facial Steaming 101

I don’t know about you, but my facial routine is GNARLY… + I loooove it. I’ve always had a love for taking care of my face + like I mentioned before its all thanks to mi madre. She would spend more time washing, oiling, moisturizing, cleansing + toning her face than doing her make-up. She taught me to ALWAYS wear sunscreen even when the sun isn’t out, don’t go to bed with makeup on, + less is more. Recently I began to notice my skin was dry in random places that it usually wasn’t (between my eyebrows, my eyelids, neck + nose areas) suuuper random + I couldn’t pin point the problem. I tried switching up cleansers + oils, which...

Crazy Nap Lady: Why We Need Our Zzzz's

I’m soo hungover. Yeah, like stayed-up-until-2:00-AM-hungover, guilty. I remember the days when 2:00 AM was the time Uber would arrive to pick us up from the bar. It’s because of this incredible hangover that I felt inspired to write on my NEED for sleep. .I’m one of those people who absolutely cannot function without a decent amount of sleep (I’m talking 8-10 hours on a good night)…so damn annoying. I’m sure most of you are thinking, oh must be nice. Well actually, no. If I get anything less, I’m not a functioning individual, it’s like I go through the motions + don’t even remember if I started my car after I’ve driven around the corner. .If you’re someone who is NOT...

True Life: I'm an OCD Packer

Ever get that feeling when you leave your vacation, all packed and ready to go home + you hit the highway, only to get that dreadful feeling that you forgot something in the room…or am I the only one? . Mind you, I’m also the type of person who completely unpacks her bag + acts like she’s moving into the hotel on any vacation, which almost sets me up for leaving something in a drawer or corner. After years of this happening + having the vivid memory as a child leaving my favorite blanket on vacation, I let my OCD ways get the best of me. I got on my computer and did some exploring + made a word document...
