50 Years of Toyota Corolla in Miami

I was so happy when I found out I would be celebrating Toyota Corolla's 50th Anniversary at Hispanicize this year! My first car was a Corolla, it was so cute..."my baby blue".

 I was 21, when I tested for my driver license. All of my friends had cars and licences way before me, so when my brother generously gifted me a car, I was excited and thankful.  The car was "my baby blue" she was a 4 door Corolla with a sunroof and a loud radio. She had a manual transmission so in order for me to put my license to use, I had to learn how to drive her. It took me a good week until we were inseparable. 
Do you have a Corolla memory? Did you have any girlfriends, family members or anyone close to you that drove a Corolla? I ask because 1 out of 4 new Corollas sold in the U.S. are bought by a Hispano. 
The Toyota Corolla has served drivers around the world with its dependability, affordability and evolution with the times no wonder it is the all-time world’s best-selling ca…

A day with JCPenney in Miami

Hola Amores!

I spent all of last week in Miami at the Hispanicize conference.  You guys know I am a stylista and I like looking put together. Hispanicize is held in Miami, therefore I had to plan according to the weather and the "feel" of Miami. I'm a Texan girl and Texas girls know how to dress and I am Latina so whatever we wear, we wear it well!

I started planning my outfits a week prior and took photos of what I planned on taking. Unfortunately for both you and I, my phone completely shattered on Monday, the first day of the summit and I don't have those pictures to share. However, I recovered bought a new phone and life was great soon after. LOL!  I knew I needed conference outfits and I wanted to stay true to my personal style. Often times, when people travel we purchase things that normally we won't wear in our city and therefore the items are no use after. I used to do that, not anymore! Spoiled Latinas shop smart!

Speaking of shopping smart, I totally l…
