C'mon get your #BWFashion on!

Hey guys! I hope you can join us for the twitter party. I LOVE Project Runway

 As you know I've been traveling quite a bit in these past few months. 
This summer I traveled all around Kansas with @xoxoLizza for Ford and Best Western, went to LA for MTV's Video Music Awards, drove around California, THEN Texas. 
One would assume I've acquired at least SOME travel tips, right!?

Here are my top 5 travel tips while still looking supah fly and keeping your cool.
*DISCLAIMER- looking like Heidi not guaranteed* 

1.  Store Jewelry In a Pill Container!
   I ALWAYS lose my jewelry on trips cause I think it's save to store them in sandwich bags, but then I find them scattered because the bag wasn't closed up all the way! (Possibly my fault, LOL) OR tangled. (UGH!) At least this way you know that it's safe!

If there's anything I swear by, its bringing an external charger with you EVERYWHERE! 
Especially when you travel. Jockery is an excellent external charger brand, and you can get them cheap on Amazon!

3. So Fresh and So Clean, Clean.
Hand wipes and anitary bathroom wipes Repeat after me, hand wipes and sanitary bathroom wipes. Airports are FULL of germs and careless people. One way to avoid getting sick is by using what? Hand wipes and sanitary bathroom wipes. Class dismissed. 

4. Travel Playlist!

 Music is everything when you're traveling. Make sure to make at least two different kinds of playlists. One for a mellow mood, and one for a booty shakin'-having a good time-omg I'm so excited for this trip mood. Speaking of booty shakin' music, click HERE for some suggestions!


When @xoxolizza and I went on our Ford #UnMiniVan trip, we encountered SO many interesting people and situations. Some were...not so nice. But we always made it a point not let anything get in our way. We took EVERYTHING as an adventure even though it was unexpected. 
But those are the best, right?! It's totally okay if things don't go as planned. 

It's such a waste to be mad about something you can't control!

I hope these help you! Don't forget 9pm EST/6pm PST!

What's Been Happening on Vine Lately...

First off, I just hit 80,000!! AHHH
*happy dance*

 I know some of you don't have Vine, so here's a little recap of what I've been up to!
(Upper left corner to turn on sound) #WhatDoWeWantChant was a tag started by @Woodsie, which involved different scenarios of the "What do we want" chant. It was trending throughout the night, so I thought I'd jump in!
I'm thinking of making Martha a character...LOL what do you think?!? Relatable, amirite?!
 You guys KNOW I love me some Disney...especially Ariel.
Therefore, Chola Ariel! lol
Do I really need to say anything else?!

Lastly, check out what one of my awesome followers made me!!
SO cool!
Give him a follow!!

Anyway, Hope you enjoyed this recap! 

Follow me!

 A week ago I was so happy to read Alexander and the Terrible,Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
to a 1st grade class at Herrera Elementary School because I read when I was a kid! 
The Story:
"Disney's 'Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day' follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander () as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life - a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns he is not alone when his mom (), dad (), brother (), and sister () all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn't had one."

 It was wonderful! 
They were the most polite, and respectful group of kids I've ever met!
 ANDDDDD the MOVIE is coming out this Friday! (Say Whaaaa?)

With that, I'm going to give you some advice on handling a bad day like Alexander's.
 Here's something I learned that'll blow your mind next time you have one.
You can't control the events that happen, but you can control how you REACT to it. 

You can change your attitude?! WHAT!?!

  1. MUSIC! Listen to music that always makes you happy and DANCE! Shake it off! (ugh not u taylor swift....jkjkjk lololol)
  2. Do something good for someone to balance out the bad events that have happened. 
  3. If one bad thing happens after another, change your attitude. Complaining won't do ANYTHING. Sulking won't do ANYTHING. Being negative won't do ANYTHING. 
  4. Remember, it's just a day. Once it's over you'll have something to laugh about later!
  5. Lastly, count your blessings. I understand if you can't "help" it, I mean, we're all human, but have a cry session, then get on with your day. Because chances are there's always someone out there who has it worse than you. Think of all the positive people and things you have in your life currently.  

You have the power to turn your day around.
So, the next time you're feeling like Alexander, just try these steps!
Don't forget! The movie comes out THIS FRIDAY!

Love, Maya

5 Songs That Make Me Shake My Booty

TMI? Sorry! Butts are popular right now. Gotta keep up with the trends.

Disclosure: I am a Verizon Ambassador
. All content and opinions are my own and based on my own experiences.

Since the HTC One M8 and I have been hanging out these past few months, we've gotten pretty close. (Thanks, Verizon! #MoreVerizon #VZWBuzz)
(Sorry, iPhone...I still luv u) 
What I LOVE about this phone is that there are DUAL speakers. Perf for booty shakin'.
Music lovers, ya see that!? 

Now, about the booty part. Er, I mean the music... 

I've been listening to these songs non-stop lately on the HTC. 
Soooooooo, here are MY 5 songs that make me dance! (in Spotify playlist!)

(Note: Music hipsters, I'm aware these are somewhat "main stream", like Ariana, Sam, and Megan. BUT! These are (what I think) the hidden gems from their albums. So give them a chance!

NEUTROGENA® Acne Selfie Challenge!(GIVEAWAY!)

This a compensated post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and NEUTROGENA®. Opinions and experiences with product are my OWN! <3

Hey guys! 
This week I'm teaming up with Neutrogena to encourage you to bring out your inner Kim Kardashian!  
Err- I mean SELFIE wise. 
We all have an inner Kim K, and not the whole "selfish selfie" side, but it's that confidence we're always either too shy to bring out, or too embarrassed. We need to stop being this way, and ENJOY today! I think of selfies as documenting life-in the moment. Don't think of it as superficial, instead think how we're never going to be as young as we are today. So why not celebrate by creating memories?!
Here are my tips on the perfect selfie while practicing good skin care with the Neutrogena® oil-free Pink Grapefruit Line!

Let's be honest- pimples SUCK. Especially when they pop up in the most inconvenient times. One way to tame acne is through good skin care. Neutrogena® oil-free Pink Grapefruit Line has products to prevent those random pimples.
Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes - Pink Grapefruit are perfect for taking off your make up at night without leaving your face greasy.
Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub and Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser will do the trick when it comes to pesky break outs, while delivering a refreshing blast of 100% naturally derived grapefruit extract and vitamin C. Did I mention it smells amazing?!

  1. LIGHTING IS EVERYTHING: Natural lighting facing you is the best for selfies. Not only that, just letting the sun touch your skin as you soak up it's positive vibes and energy!  But also...make sure it doesn't wash out your face!
  2. SELFIES WITH RANDOM THINGS: Memories are the best when they're captured in a picture. I always try to create memories via selfie by taking pictures with random, interesting things. Then you can look back and think, "Did I really do that?!".
  3. SELFIES WITH FRIENDS: I try to take selfies with my friends all the time. First, a normal picture, then a completely silly one. Life isn't meant to be lived so seriously, so a funny face selfie with your BFF is a must!
  4. SMIZE: Definition via Urban Dictionary:  'Smile with your eyes,'  "as coined by supermodel Tyra Banks on the thirteenth cycle of America's Next Top Model. The art of smizing is epitomized by the legendary Super Smize."  BASICALLY- smile with your eyes! It helps to thinking about something that makes your heart happy. For me, it was BREAD!
    Just kidding, it was my puppy!


Giveaway requirements! 
Post a selfie on Instagram using the #NeutrogenaSelfie hashtag and submit the link to your selfie here: Rafflecopter giveaway.
Giveaway will close on August 29, 2014.

Good Luck!!

Love, Maya
