How I Talk To My Children About Race

How I Talk To My Children About Race

I will never forget the first time my blonde son asked me why my skin is brown. “Mama has brown skin because mama is Mexican,” I told him. I explained that people of all different colors, white, brown, and black and everything in between, live alongside one other or together, just like our family. I concluded by telling him that this is a big part of what makes us the United States Of America. He didn’t notice the woman who…

Friday Finds

Anthropologie Dried Hydrangea Bouquet

This edition of Friday Finds is all about pick-me-ups, for our friends, family, for ourselves. If there is one resounding similarity between my experience and those of everyone who has graciously opened up to me about their own, it’s that this global health crisis has brought us on an unexpected roller coaster of emotions: extreme highs and extreme lows. The best we can do is throw our hands in the air and soak in the upswings and try to muster…

The Most Comfortable Mask

Lauren Moshi Vira X Spray Kiss Mask

I know there is a bit of controversy around wearing masks to help stop the spread of COVID-19, but I am 100% on board with doing whatever I can personally to aid in flattening the curve as much as possible. Where I live, we are not permitted to enter most public spaces (the few that have reopened) without wearing one. I will admit that most masks I have tried are uncomfortable, I cannot even begin to fathom what it is…

10 Best Ear Cuffs

360 Cashmere Willa Skull Intarsia Wool Cashmere Cardigan

It’s officially peak mutiny in my house, and I’m going to have the scars to prove it. After taking a metal Matchbox Wonder Woman car (the irony) to my cartilage courtesy of my toddler, I’m stitched up and fine but permanently cosmetically scathed. A stylish friend suggested I start searching for an ear cuff, and now I feel like I need one even if I come out on the other side of this without a keloid. Here are the 10…

10 Best Modcloth Swimsuits On Sale Now

Eberjey Summer of Love Cover Up Dress

One of my best online orders of the entire season last summer was a few swimsuits from Modcloth. I was just a couple weeks post partum when it dawned on me that my suits had seen better days, and I dreaded trying on swimwear after having my third baby. I bought several thinking I would like one or two and return the rest. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I loved them all. They are well made, flattering,…

The Best Self Tanner

Isle Of Paradise Self Tanning Drops Review

I have tried self tanners in the past and had given up hope that any brand would ever work for me. My skin is on the browner side of the spectrum thanks to my Mexicana mama, but I sometimes want a little more even color on my legs and face. After week 6 of quarantine, I caught a glimpse in the mirror and thought I had seen a ghost (maybe I’m being dramatic but I feel it). My complexion looked…

Honest Review Of SoulCycle At Home Bike

I remember my first SoulCycle class better than my first kiss. It was a turning point after which I compared every spin class from that day forward, and Soul became the gold standard of cycling in my mind. When pre-orders of SoulCycle’s at-home bike launched amid social distancing and the imminent COVID-19 quarantine, I couldn’t have put down the deposit fast enough. I’ve been using it for two weeks now and here is my honest review of SoulCycle’s at-home bike:…

4 Best Tips For Moving With Kids

It’s moving season, and post-quarantine I feel a major moving boom on the horizon. We moved right before shelter-in-place became a part of our every day vocabulary, and now it feels like we’ve lived in this house forever. Moving with 3 kids under 4 was a lot of logistics, but I implemented a few tricks that helped ease the big change for my brood that really went a long way on a very long day. Here are my 4 best…
