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've seen some pretty bad plastic surgery in my lifetime, but nothing quite as scary as Elsa Patton from Bravo TV's The Real Housewives of Miami. I don't want to be mean or anything, but look how crazy this poor woman's face looks. The sad thing is, she was actually a very good looking Cuban woman when she was younger. Unfortunately, she's just one of many Latina celebs who look like they've butchered their looks all because of plastic surgery.Continue Reading >

It's astonishing that kinds of things us women are willing to do just for the sake of gorgeous hair and good skin. And I'm not talking Botox or laser-hair removal. I'm referring to a new Korean skin-care routine that's become increasing popular; it's--wait for it--donkey milk! That's right, donkey milk. How strange is that? But apparently this stuff is known for leaving skin super smooth, soothing and gentle--perfect for sensitive skin! And it's not the only weird beauty trend women are trying these days!
I never realized how much of a jokester Thalia was until I started skimming through her Instagram page. The girl has a serious sense of humor. Most of the photos she posts are memes with her face added to it or just her poking fun at herself. Oh like that time she took a picture with a jar filled with ribs in a funny effort to address that plastic surgery rumor that she had her ribs removed to look slimmer. Crazy, right? This girl cracks me up!
Sometimes I feel as if I'm the only woman on this planet who doesn't give a crap about Fifty Shades of Grey. Maybe it's because I'm not a fan of erotic, romance novels or maybe I'm just tired of hearing about it all the time. But my feelings towards it doesn't really matter, because the book seems to have made a huge impression on many people AND their sex lives. In fact, the movie isn't even out yet and there's already a bunch of crazy people getting Fifty Shades of Grey tattoos. Tell me that isn't ridiculous!
