I'm the Beauty and Fashion Staff Writer at MamásLatinas and a proud Dominicana! I was born and raised in Queens, New York and have hopes of one day moving to Manhattan. Obsessed with all things beauty and fashion, you'll normally find me either trying on a new lipstick, experimenting with DIY beauty remedies or bargain shopping. I graduated from Baruch College with a Journalism major and English Literature Minor in 2009, and have interned at various magazines like SELF, Latina, Popular Science and InStyle.I know I'm Latina when...
I find myself eating platanos or bananas with every meal!

I don't understand why anyone in the world would want to own a couch that looks just like a vagina. Yes, a vagina. In fact, if you saw the one we wrote about last year, you'll be equally grossed out (if not more) by this latest piece of furniture that includes everything from labia lips to a clitoris-looking pillow. Who would actually buy this thing?
There's nothing more annoying than having chichos spilling out of your skinny jeans or sporting layers of lumps underneath a too-tight outfit. We all have flaws, that doesn't mean we have to have them displayed for all the world to see. Feeling self-conscious about your muffin top lately? Don't sweat it chica, there's are ways to hide those trouble areas without going on a drastic diet!Continue Reading >
Eva Mendes seems to have it all these days. Good looks, her own fashion line with New York & Company and in case you still haven't heard yet, Ryan Gosling's baby on the way! I have to admit, though, I'm sort of bummed out that Eva's been avoiding paparazzi. I was looking forward to checking out her pregnancy style and her gorgeous head of hair. Eva's hair literally looks perfect ALL the time, so imagine how awesome it must be now with all those hormones rushing through her system!Continue Reading >
What in the world is going on with Khloe Kardashian? I'm happy she moved on from her jerk ex-husband, Lamar Odom, but I'm not too sure how I feel about this new French Montana dude. Did you hear about that crazy 105.1 interview she had with Angie Martinez on Thursday? She basically spilled the beans on their sex life. But what really has everyone talking is this super suspicious picture Khloe recently posted to her Instagram. It looks like a possible pregnancy pose? You HAVE to see it!Continue Reading >
We had a pretty bad winter this year--probably one of the worst I've ever experienced anyway. So even though I've never been a huge fan of sweltering hot and humid temperatures (I'm more of a fall/spring kind of girl), I promised myself that I wasn't going to complain this summer. But I'm sorry, having sweat and eyeliner dripping down my face in the middle of the day isn't exactly my idea of fun and leisure. Seriously, it's NOT cute!
