Dove Advanced Care Gives You An #EssentialUpgrade


*This is a sponsored campaign written by me on behalf of Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and WeAllGrow Latina. However, all opinions expressed are my own.


Everyday as woman we each have a routine to getting ready for the day. We wake up to start our daily routines and conquer the day.  Some may start the day with yoga or exercise, others my start with reading emails and coffee, while others start off by getting their families ready.  What ever routine you may have there is no doubt that as woman we all want to feel confident and fresh. For me my routine includes a shower every morning and making sure I have my Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant Deodorant. I make sure everyday to apply deodorant to prevent any wetness or order from the days stresses. Every woman has their daily must have products they can't leave home without.

Dove knows woman have a strong connection with personal care products, using numerous products every day. This is why Dove conducted a survey with Latinas all across the US to get a better understanding about their daily beauty routines. The survey revealed surprising results, deodorant was the one thing they never want to skip and it made Latinas feel more confident when wearing it. Forgetting to wear deodorant can greatly impact their confidence and made Latinas feel self-conscious, causing them to shy away from others. I know it does affect me, if I ever forget to wear deodorant it will make me feel very self-conscious all day long and worry about order. I have always been super conscious about order and never want to be the "stinky" one. We all have things to worry and stress about in our daily lives, wetness and order shouldn't be one of them.


I'v been using Dove products for several years and recently had the opportunity to try out the Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant Deodorant. The deodorant comes in several scents like soothing chamomile with 48 hour protection to keep order and wetness away. Dove Advanced Care contains NutriumMoisture which helps keep your underarm skin smooth and soft. I really enjoyed the soft and subtle scent of chamomile, which isn't too strong and over powering. My underarm skin has felt very soft and hasn't stained my clothing at all. I definitely felt protected and fresh using Dove Advanced Care.

The Dove survey reveals as well that Latinas care about how their underarms feel and look. Many woman have experienced irritation, dry skin, uneven tone and other problems. So when you can use a product that helps with order, wetness and can make your underarms look and feel better its a winning combo in my book!
Deodorant is one of those products we all use and need, but we don't talk about often. It's an essential personal care product that gets overlooked. However what if you can get more than just odor protection. Choosing the right deodorant/antiperspirant can be an essential upgrade to your daily beauty and personal care routine. As woman we wear many hats everyday, always taking care of everyone around us. Isn't time we took care of ourselves, using products like Dove Advanced Care is a small way to care for ourselves and not settle for anything less. Just a simple thing like using a deodorant that protects you for 48 hours from wetness and order along with making your skin soft and smooth can be the difference you need in your personal care routine.

How do you upgrade your daily personal care routine?

The Fab 40's - Bomber Jacket 90's Inspired


Here we are again with another installment of The Fab 40's, this months theme was chosen by Sheela of Sheela Writes. Bomber Jackets, are totally on trend right now and I know they will be hot for fall and winter. This isn't my 1st go around with bomber jackets, the trend was very popular in my high school days. Yup, the look was so cool in the 90's. Wearing a bomber jacket took me back to 1992 listening to The Smiths on my brothers boom box, while watching 90210 wondering if Brenda & Dylan would break up! Ah the 90's were so awesome, so many great things happened and so many great fashion trends were worn. Honestly didn't really intended to have my outfit be a 90's inspired look, but once I put on the bomber jacket my 17 year old self appeared. OK, actually the 17 year cool version of who I wish I had been appeared. I would have probably not worn this outfit when I was a teen, mostly because cool and trendy clothing in plus size didn't exist in the early 90's. It was nearly impossible to find fashionable and trendy clothing for any one over a size 12. The struggle was real to be a chubby teen girl in the 90's!



When I look back at pictures of myself in high school, I realize how much smaller I was in size, yet couldn't find clothes to wear.  Well lets say I couldn't find the clothes I wanted to wear in my size. Plus size fashion was very limited and trust me the clothes that was available I did not want to wear. I resorted to either wearing my brothers jeans and tees, or usually wearing sweats. Thankfully my mom was a seamstress and she would make me clothes or alter certain things to fit me. Seriously don't know how I made it during my teen years, I yearned to be cool and hip, but the fashion industry wouldn't let me!


Although plus fashion still has ways to go, the options are much better.  I wish half the stores and styles were available in the 90s.  The plus fashion industry has evolved and I am more than happy to evolve with it.  I now can walk into stores and buy the latest trends in my size, or better yet order cool clothes online. Don't you just love the internet!  


When my boyfriend saw my outfit he said "you look like a fly girl", for those of you younger readers Google "fly girl" and find out who they were. One of the more famous fly girls was Jennifer Lopez, before she became JLo.  She was a dancer on a popular show In Living Color. This show was one of my favorites and I watched it weekly just to see what the fly girls would wear.  They were the coolest girls and had the best outfits, all the girls wanted to look like a fly girl.  This outfit reminds me of something a fly girl would wear, except they would have worn a cat suit instead of a jumpsuit. Now if I could also dance like the fly girls my life would be complete!


So here's my version wearing a bomber jacket, a little 90's and fly girl inspired. When I first bought the bomber jacket my first thought was to wear it with my distressed jeans and rock tee. That's how I will probably wear it most, but for this challenge I wanted to push my self and get creative. I paired it with this jumpsuit and my Vans for a more edgy look. 

Outfit Details
Jumpsuit: Bongo Plus $3.99
Bomber Jacket: Forever21 $22
Croc Slip On Vans: Vans Outlet $15
Mini Slik Scarf Backpack: Stussy Japan $15
Sunnies: Gift from sister
Earrings/Necklace: H&M (old)



As I mentioned in the beginning of post, this is my 2nd installment of the Fab 40's blogger group. I am loving these style challenges and collaboration with other bloggers. We have an awesome diverse group of ladies from all the world. Last months post was done some what last minute and I didn't really give these ladies a proper introduction. So now for you reading consideration I want to introduce you to the other Fab 40's ladies and their bomber jacket looks. 

Here are the Fab 40's Bloggers in this months theme...Bomber Jacket


Sheela from Sheela Writes is from Borneo, now living in Texas, she's a great writer and super stylish lady. I love her bomber jacket look, with the two-tone jacket, casual and chic. If you are a shoe lover, then you must check out Sheela's blog. She has an amazing shoe collection. 
Mary from Curlybyrrdie Chirps is a mid-west girl with classic style. She pairs classic looks with feminine style and always does it on a budget. Her printed bomber jacket is on trend and paired with a skirt keeps her signature classy style. 

Samantha from Fake Fabulous is a scientist from Scotland, she is the most stylish scientist I know. She likes to Fake her Fabulousness with her style, she looks pretty fab to me with her cute floral bomber jacket. 
Diane from Fashion On The 4th Floor is from the US and just gorgeous. I look at her pictures and want all her clothing, in plus size of course. She always has a smile to go with her stylish outfits. This bomber jacket look is so girly, but I love how she paired the outfit with pink sneakers. 

Ann from Kremb De La Kremb is an American living and working abroad. She has lived all over the world for over 20 yrs and her travels have influenced her style. Although I can see her all American look come through in her outfits. Especially this one with the red bomber jacket and her stars and stripes. 

Jennie from A Pocketful Of Polka Dots, is a southern gal from South Carolina. She loves prints and incorporates them in most of her outfits. Just like she did with the floral bomber jacket, for a office look with a twist. 

Grace from Grace and Color is the guest blogger for this month. She is from China, but now lives in Michigan. She blogs about petite fashion and loves colorful outfits. She sure shows off her love of fashion and color in this outfit. The red skirt looks great with the subtle colors in the bomber jacket.

Casual Doesn't Have To Be Boring - #UntamedStyle Linkup

When it comes to fashion, why does it seem like "casual" and "comfortable" are dirty words? Growing up reading fashion magazine you rarely saw any casual looks in those glossy pages. No one ever looked comfortable wearing those high end designer clothing. Even watching fashion makeover shows like "What Not To Wear" dressing casual was often frowned upon.  I mean casual and comfortable doesn't mean sloppy or boring, well at least not to me! I live in casual comfortable clothing, its what best suits my lifestyle. I don't claim to be the most stylish or fashionable, but I do try to find ways of making my casual looks fun and interesting. Let me share some ways to take your casual comfy looks from boring to banging!

Since I am back to work now, there is no outfits to share this week. I know, I know what a bad blogger. This week has been super busy, and with the heat by the time I get home theres no time or energy left in me to take outfit pictures. Hey life happens and I am sure many of you can relate. I have been driving all over LA County this week for work, and traffic has been killer. Most schools are starting again and I bet that's causing the major traffic. Did I mention the heat, yeah its been quite hot in LA. We also have a big huge fire causing havoc, so yeah with all that going on no cute outfit this week.  I didn't want to miss yet another #UntamedStyle Linkup, so instead I am sharing some pictures from my day at the Orange County Fair. We had a great time and even enjoyed a concert. Keep reading for all the fun details.
