Becca x Jaclyn Hill

Guess who has the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Palette? I DO! I DO! I got it in the mail today and I am so incredibly excited to share this with all of you. I am absolutely in love with Becca Cosmetics as their pigments are out of this world, and most importantly compliment with my tanned skin so perfectly. I am literally counting down the days until I can get my hands on the rest of the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Collection. I had high expectations for this palette, based on other Becca Cosmetic products I own, and let’s just say it will be my go-to palette all summer long!

Sharing My Story On Chatelaine Magazine

Andrea Lazo and Christie Lazo

About two months ago, I noticed a post on Chatelaine Magazine’s Facebook page about a casting call for mothers and daughters as they were looking to examine the unique relationship for a special in their May issue. Little did I know that my email would catch the attention of the team at Chatelaine Magazine and that I would receive a response with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The results? My mom and I are featured and sharing intimate details about our relationship in the May 2016 issue of Chatelaine Magazine!

Ivy Park Has Arrived

Beyonce Activewear Collection

I am VERY excited about this new activewear line. No, it has nothing to do with the fact that it’s co-founded by Beyonce — okay, maybe a little. I can’t put my finger on the exact factor, but it has really caught my attention. Could it be all the black? (My staple colour) Could it be what the brand represents? Or because I simply want to support a fellow bootylicious girl that I trust will make clothing that will actually flatter my shape? Whatever it may be, I have all the details of where to shop the collection – Ivy Park has arrived.

Powerful Ad Encourages Partners To #ShareTheLoad

Ariel India Ad - #ShareTheLoad

BBDO India has won a Glass Lion for the ad I’m about to show you at the 2015’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. If you ask me, the award was more than well deserved. The message of this ad, for the Ariel brand (P&G India), is one that I think about all the time. The situation behind the powerful ad is not one that may be common in Indian culture, but in Latin American culture as well.

90’s Songs Latinos Will Never Forget

Musica Latina de los 90 - Mana, Fey, Garibaldi - 90's songs

When I hear these 90’s songs, they bring me back. They bring me right back to the little girl that loved to sing and dance in the living room of my home back in Peru, or the sassy girl that immigrated to Canada and tried so hard to hang on to any aspect of her Latinidad that she could. When I though about writing this post and began compiling the songs, it was SO hard to pick which ones to include. I spent quite a bit of time reminiscing and singing along; as well as laughing at all the cheesiness of all these videos!
