I have only a few days before I turn 33! I can’t believe it. First of all I feel like I am 23. Secondly I am not ready to be 33. I guess when birthdays approach much like New Years, we tend to reflect on our the past year and what we have done with it. That being said I am finding myself on that boat. The thinking boat. Thinking about time and how it passes.
In November 2012, I was living on my own enjoying life in the moment. But I was scared of the future. I was scared because I did not dream big and allow myself to see what I was capable of.
Now-November 2013, a few days shy of my 33rd birthday, I find myself happily cohabiting with my Herbaboo, planning an addition to our family and excitingly scared of the possibilities of our future.
As you all may know by now I am an Herbalife Independent Distributor and I dream, I dream BIG! I no longer fear the future, but welcome it and its amazing possibilities. I feel more of a grown up now then ever before, because I now hold myself accountable for my future. I know that if I work hard in Herbalife my future will be amazing. I will live a lifestyle I can only dream of.
I always hashtag the following saying “INVEST IN YOU”. Not until this year did I really understand this. It was an “aha” moment. I finally understood, if I don’t invest in me, then who will? I was never the girl that thought she would be at home getting taken care of. I always knew I would have to “work” for a living… Not until I allowed myself to see that I can not only make a living, but I can make a fortune! I mean why not?
“Work hard on your job, and you can make a living. Work hard on yourselves and you can make a fortune.” – Jim Rohn
This quote really spoke to me, it made me realize that I was just making a living and that’s where the buck stopped. What about next year? will I still be in this situation. NO! I am investing in me. I am letting Herbalife be my fuel to greatness. Its all quite simple really. I must invest in me, therefore I must work hard for me. If I work hard for me then I will have a great future. Or I could work hard for a “j o b” work on their goals and make a living. What sounds better? Making a living or making a fortune. The choice is yours. I am working part time on my fortune while making a living at my job.
I invite you to invest in you! Don’t wait until your birthday to have this “a-ha” moment. Really listen to yourself. Are you designing your life the way you in vision it? Are you breaking the barriers of “what is” and allowing yourself to see “what could be”. Herbalife has given me back hope. Not only do I feel amazing, but I am doing amazingly well!
Join my journey as I turn Forever 21 (cough, cough) I mean 33 years young! Invest in you!
Hola Chicas, or should I say hynas! I wanted to keep you up to date on what my Herbaboo and I decided to dress up as this Halloween season. We wanted everything to be 100% DIY (do it yourself). As I mentioned in my previous post, October is a crazy month for me, so I can never justify spending on a costume for myself. Therefore we put on our thinking caps, and came up with this; we were going to be OG cholos! Now the intention is not to offend anyone, but rather to poke fun at ourselves and have fun for a night.
We got into character 100%. We attended a costume party Saturday night and the people who attended kept on giving us looks.Finally we got asked “are you guys dressed up, or are you really cholos?”, we couldn’t help but burst out in laughter!
Our mission was complete, we had a great time out together and we only spent $12 on the entire costume.
What will you dress up as?
The other night, my mother got extremely excited to share “the great news”, mind you, this lady is a huge novelera (Spanish soap opera fanatic) about Telemundo doing a rerun on “La Reina del Sur!” She said, “now that you are home, we can watch it together!”…
This took me back when I blogged about “La Reina del Sur” on my old Spanglish blog, Soy Latina Fashion. Here’s that old post:
……”During my trip to L.A, I met Borca Perez, Telemundo’s Vice President of Digital Media and during our networking, el topico de la conversacion era, “La Reina del Sur.” Todos estaban facinados platicando sobre “Teresa, La Mexicana,” en especial el cuerpazo de Kate del Castillo, who plays “Teresa Mendoza, La Mexicana!” Y yo…bien gracias, had no idea what they were talking about. Entonces, I quickly called my sister to check if she knew about “la tal novela.” As soon as she realized that I was clueless she said, “¿Que, que, no puedo creer de lo que te estas perdiendo?” Then, she proceeded to tell me all about it. I was determined to watch this so-called, “La Gran Novela de Telemundo.” As soon as I made it back home to Missouri, I called my T.V provider and upgraded my service to a Latino plan that included Telemundo and many other Spanish channels.
Now, I watch “La Reina del Sur” every night as soon as my kiddies go to bed. To be honest, I’m mostly obsessed with Kate del Castillo; esa chica is amazingly talented y que no se diga ese cuerpazo! I’m now a member of Telemundo’s club de noveleras, I follow Telemundo on twitter and not to mention, Kate! Oh, did I tell you that I have never in my life been a novelera? I guess there’s a first time for everything, right? “La Reina del Sur” is always part of my conversations, even with my Non-Hispanics friends. ¡Y deja de eso…mi fiancé, “el gringito” is obsessed too!
According to www.tvbythenumbers.com,” La Reina del Sur” is the most-watched novela premiere in Telemundo’s history. It has crazy ratings throughout the nation!……………”
And that’s where my obsession started with the lovely Kate del Castillo.
When I made my declaration to take control of my health and achieve the best version of me with Herbalife nutrition, I decided to start this journey with 25 of my first herbalife clients ever with a weight loss challenge. One of the projects I had all of us do is a vision board based on health and fitness; a great motivational tool to achieve our health goals! One of the visuals was to find a celebrity that inspired each one of us. I automatically picked Kate del Castillo, I blasted her picture everywhere throughout my house, office, car and studio. I’ll tell you what, that totally worked for me and for so many of my clients!
It has been two years since I decided to take this journey and I must say it has been life changing! Most importantly, being able to maintain and to continue to improve~so being a 35 year old mother of three kids…definitely a challenge, but obvious not impossible!
Here is my two year transformation:
When it’s all said and done, I am glad I picked Kate del Castillo, not to be obsessed with her body but more to see her as a role model. Kate del Castillo is a powerful Latina actress, who has touched to many hearts with her incredible talent. I now realize that it is my journey, my transformation, my body that I have learned to embrace and love every inch of it. As for you, if you have been attempting year after year to reach your body goal and have failed. From experience, I will tell you, not one goal will be accomplished if you do not believe in yourself, so the key is to believe you can make it happen! Put together a vision board and keep it close to you, find a celebrity or someone you look up to with a similar body type, surround youself with like-minded people, find a support system to achieve greatness. KEY: Stay true to you, don’t compare youself to anyone, there’s only one of you, you are beautiful~ every part of you, so enjoy your journey, cherish every moment and become the best version of you!
If you need guidance and support… I have your back!
For this girl, October consist of so many things. I not only have two very special birthday’s this month, but I also have a lot of dues due (if you know what I mean), so the last thing on my mind is this “What am I going to dress up for Halloween”. I always start the month off thinking i don’t have time to dress up so I leave it out of my mind. My mind is occupied with so many things. I wonder will my kids share birthday parties this year, I think about what days I will hold the birthdays, what will I do for them at their school, what gifts will they get, what flavor cakes, will they be with me or their dad on their actual birthday, so many things come to mind. Not to mention that I also think what will the kids dress up as and where are we going trick or treating. No room for me to think about me.
So now a few days away from Halloween, I find myself with Halloween Party invitations and no costume. I all of a sudden have an itch to get creative, but with my daughter’s birthday party in a few days I not only don’t have time to shop but I don’t really cant and wont justify spending money on a costume that I will only use once. I would much rather spend it on my Herbalife product .
My Herbaboo and I decided to go to a party we got invited to this Saturday. So being that this is all so last minute and our priorities not being on purchasing a costume, we decided to look at our closet and come up with something to dress up as… I have done my share of research on Pinterest, Polyvore and google search and here are the finalist…
Here are my ideas, what do you think?
- I can be a sexy bunny, get creative with a few pieces I have in my closet and my herba-boo can be my Hugh…
Or we can be Mejicanos and dress up as Frida and Diego?
Should we be greasers?
Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, anyone?
I can be Vivian and get picked up by my Herbaboo.
What do you think we should dress up as? Do you have the same dilemma? What are you dressing up as?
Whatever I decide I will keep you chicas updated! Until the next shake, Herbalife of course.
I’m in training to be an online wellness coach!! It’s pretty exciting. ))
I’ve used Herbalife for two years now and been a distributor, but never really taken it seriously when people ask me what I’ve done or how I’ve transformed. When I stopped to think about it, I realized, I want to help these people reach their goals too. Not just give them a simple answer of “I used Herbalife and worked out really hard”.

SOOOOO…. on to the really personal stuff….
I’ve been through some real life struggles this past year and came to realization that I am the creator of my own life. The struggles I am presented with, are my own. I’ve had to let go of toxic people, let go of the what if’s. I’ve battled with self esteem and image issues. I also realized that for 8 years, I have been relying on my husband to do EVERYTHING for me. When did I become this person?
Have faith in yourself.
I love Fall! I love the beautiful ever changing trees, flowers, plants, and weather, EVERYTHING… However, I might add that for fashion it’s a little bit tricky. It’s not quite cold, yet it’s not quite summer anymore. Its too early to bring out the coats, but too breezy to wear summery clothes (did I just rhyme? haha)
So what is a girl to do? I can’t get myself to put my summer clothes in storage yet (because I have very limited closet space- but that is a whole different blog post!) I know we all have our favorite summer pieces.. Let me share some of mine… and what I will be wearing them with this Summer-Fall-Winter transition.
Do you find now a days everything moves so fast? One that is at an unstopable speed is fashion; styles come and go, and beauty trends fade in and out. Keeping up with the latest in what to wear can be quite stressful, and the biggest question is “can I pull this outfit off?” Ay dios mio, may I just hire a fashion stylist like @herba_fashionista?
On a good note, one thing that’s always in style: quality time with friends! So, how about a girls night out fashionista style? I know, I know, Fashion week just passed, but keep in mind I live in Riverside, California, not New York nor Paris. So even though things come a little slow here, it is still just as amazing…Destination Fall Fashion Show brought to us by Riverside Downtown Partnership to celebrate fashion and art, to explore retail and local designers, and give fashionistas a chance to indulge in their love of fashion, art, and music. HALLA!

HERBALIFE EXTRAVAGANZA in Las Vegas! It’s the year’s “Big Event” for Herbalife, not to mention for you, your team and your business. Thousands of Herbalife Distributors attend this event and learn valuable strategies, brilliant sales and recruiting techniques! Attendees will be able to network exchange ideas and make priceless business contacts. This weekend is developed to expand your business and to blow your mind! How amazing does that sound? Now the million dollar question on everyone’s mind…
WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR!!!????
First off, it is a business event, therefore business attire should be somewhere in the mix, but I believe one shouldn’t lose the personal touch that says “I am me”. I suggest keeping the outfits versatile. Being that the event is all day, but you might want to head for drinks or dinner right after; the last thing you want to happen is your outfit not be right, or the shoes be too casual or too painful to walk anymore. What if you meet someone that you want to grab a drink with? Do you want to be that girl that needs hours to get ready? NO! this could be an important business connection, you have to be ready! Its Veeeegas baaaaby, no time to waste!
Adventure and opportunity at every corner, BE READY!
Now what do we say about Herbalife.. It’s fast food for the intelligent person, meaning its grab and go… Your fashion should be the same for an event like this… You are talking about THOUSANDS of attendees, good looking fit business people. No pressure, right? Nope, not really. Not if you follow some simple steps.
First off let’s get the bad news out of the way (for some). …. ABSOLUTELY no FLATS! Heels are a must! So look through your closet and make sure you select your most comfortable heels. Next look for outfits that can be versatile. An outfit that will give you credibility as a business person, gain the respect of your peers, but also make a fashion statement.
The day is over, and now you gather outside and connect with the amazing people you met as well as friends, team, business partners. They all want to grab a cocktail and discuss the amazing day and what was learned. All of you are full of excitement and information and want to just talk about what the action plan is for your business. So what do you say? “Let’s go! Give me 5 minutes to go to the powder room! “ Psssshhh no big deal because in your purse you will have what you need… Fragrance spray to freshen up, statement lipstick, blush, powder, eyeliner and hairspray! Make a couple of changes to the SAME outfit and baaabaaaboom, you are now VEGAS ready!…
Now I know what they say… What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas… Not this time! I will be too excited and full of knowledge that I will be sharing my experience with all of you! because you are made to SPARKLE and I wish this opportunity for YOU as well! It’s not too late! You should come! I dare you to GAMBLE on your dreams and take a chance on you! Because if you don’t take a chance on you, then who will?

Catch your attention?? So will these false eyelashes. They can look hard to accomplish, but really, it’s easy. Here’s a little video on how to do it quick and easy!
1. Peel off lashes gently
2. If needed, cut to fit your eye shape better
3. Apply decent layer of glue to the edge, concentrating on the ends
4. Move, wiggle the lash to let it mold to your eye shape
5. Let the glue set for 30-60 seconds
6. Place along the lash line where your skin meets your lashes
7. “Push up” the falsies until you feel the “set” (I HAVE TO ADD A LITTLE WORKOUT HUMOR TO EVERYTHING)
