Hey guys! I’ve been on somewhat of a healthy hair kick (easing my way into it, anyway). I wanted to explore what healthy hair products are out there without spending too much, because I ain’t gonna lie,


Luckily, I’ve teamed up with Target to share some new all natural hair care products that are free of harmful chemicals and full of nutrient-rich, restorative and plant-based ingredients.

Here is my experience using Target’s new all natural hair care products for the first time! 🙂

The first two are SoapBox’s Bataua Fruit shampoo and conditioner.

These products are packed with fatty acids and amino acids (which helps your hair grow) to nourish your scalp and hair. Make sure to wait 3-5 minutes before rinsing your hair.

HERE’S THE COOL PART: With every bottle you buy, SoapBox will provide a month’s supply of clean water to a community in need! #SoapEqualsHope

Ummmmmmmm, whaaat?


The last three are from the Renpure line. No sodium chloride, sulfates, dyes, harsh salts, parabens, or gluten. GET OUTTA HERE, GLUTEN.

These products are mainly to repair and cleanse your hair, which means extra time in the shower. I’ve always been used to shampooing, conditioning and BAM. Done. Quick shower. However, I thiiiink not going the extra step to repair is one of the reasons why my hair isn’t as healthy as it should be.Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 9.10.21 PM

The cleansing pudding requires running the product through your hair, starting from root to tip. Not in a shampooing motion. And to detangle, use a wide tooth comb (had to google what that was, don’t judge me). Reading this made me feel very anxious because I don’t think I’ve never FULLY detangled my hair, because, OUCH.


ANYWAY- I pushed through my childhood detangle nightmares induced by my abuelita, and did what had to be done because I’m a grown woman.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 9.13.19 PMThe key ingredients in these products are coconut oil, shea butter, argan oil, and monol oil. Which all help to chill out the frizz, lock moisture in, and restore natural oils you may have lost from straightening your hair. *COUGH COUGH* Me…


After using these products I’ve definitely noticed my hair feels waaaay lighter and smells heavenly. But most importantly,  just knowing what was going into my hair made me feel a sense of control. Listen, I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life, but I think we can all benefit from using all natural products.

Your hair is sacred and should be treated like a QUEEEEEEEN. Just like you!

I hope I’ve given you some insight or even giggles. If I did,


You can get all the above and more at Target.com and at your local Target store!

Neutrogena Face-Off Challenge!

 This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with NEUTROGENA and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, the words and opinions are my own! 🙂 

 Hey loves!
 I took part in the #NeutrogenaRostroLimpio (clean face) Face-Off challenge!

First, here’s my little background story:
I used to leave my makeup on at night just out of pure laziness. Which is the WORST thing you could ever do to your face…i’ve learned now…lol.

 I noticed I started getting blemishes ALL over my face, which increased my insecurities. But once I started using Neutrogena’s makeup remover cleansing towelettes to take off my makeup every night, they were gone! I also have sensitive and dry skin, and didn’t notice any irritation.

I use these makeup wipes every night, religiously and swear by them. Did you know these wipes take off 99.3% of all traces of dirt, oil, and makeup that usually clogs (ew…lol) your pores? That’s a rostro limpio. 🙂 You can get them at your local food/drug store. They retail for about $8.99 for 25 towelettes with Vanity Case (shown in the picture) or $6.49 for 25 refills. Either way, they are super affordable!

Here is the challenge:

1.Use the wipes to take off your makeup, (along with your typical daily cleanser).

My face before taking off my makeup. GET READY FOR A NAKEY FACE!!

2.THEN, use a white towel to dry your face.

3. Lastly, notice how WHITE the towel is because your face is super duper spotless after using the awesome Neutrogena makeup remover. 😀

*cue the Ooooos and Awwwws*

Don’t just stop there, make sure to check out all the other goodies Neutrogena has to offer!

What have we learned today, kids? Take care of your face and it’ll take care of you! (That sounded better in my head)

Love, Maya




 Change up your style! It doesn’t have to be a “Side pony”…lol. Try something you’ve never done before. Like a bowl cut!!!! HAHA just kidding. don’t do that.


 Be comfortable in your own skin! YOU ARE SEXY!!! (plz, boyz. don’t fall in love with me.) But seriously, I hate when people say, “I’m so awkward, I could never do that :(” NO. Stop blaming your “Awkwardness” EVERYONE IS AWKWARD!!! Be confident in whatever situation you feel awk in. Confidence is key, baby. And confidence is sexy.


Explore your crafty side. Check out some easy DIY projects i’ve done in the past:


Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE karaoke. But in this vine I just had one of those moments. You know, that moment when you’re like, “omg. i’m really singing Disney karaoke in my room, on a Friday night. I should be studying, or hanging out with my cute boyfriend. Wait, I don’t have a boyfriend AHAHAHAHA silly me.”*cries*  Just me? Oh. okay.
BOTTOM LINE: Have fun, AFTER you’ve gotten your sheeeet done. <3

5. Don’t Take Things So Seriously
Everyone was making really awesome artsy vines, so I thought I’d make my own. This was me trying to be “moody”. FAIL! After this I felt super embarrassed for trying to be artsy. Don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself every once in a while.

Holiday Faves!

 This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Neutrogena and Latina Bloggers Connect
Hey guys! The holidays are here, which means family, food and holiday parties. (But mostly food…) and I LOVE to get dolled up for a party. When it comes to make-up, I’ve always been low maintenance. All I need is foundation, mascara, blush and eyeliner. I don’t like make up that clumps up, or clogs up my pores. If you’re the same, Neutrogena cosmetics are super duuuper simple. Here are some of my favorites for the holiday!

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup(Natural Ivory 20) $13.99
  • Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow(Lasting Taupe)$7.99
  • Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara  $8.99
  • Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick(Bright Berry)$8.99

    I highly suggest the healthy liquid makeup if you want a light coverage. I love it because it doesn’t feel like I have any makeup on! Another biggie for me is eye shadow because I never know what looks good with my eyes, or even how to put it on.The Crease Proof Eyeshadow is just a stick of eyeshadow! All you do is rub it on your eyelid and BAM! You’ve got a subtle yet sessi (couldn’t say that word without giggling) look! If you wanted a heavier look, just reapply. Eyelashes are EVERYTHINGGGGGGGGGG. I seriously love Healthy Lengths mascara because it’s supposed to help your lashes grow longer, AND make them look bold (also bootiful). (It’s safe to wear if you have sensitive eyes, or wear contacts) Lastly, lips. If you’re going to a holiday party, you gotta rock either a bold red lip, or a cute flirty pink lip. MoistureSmooth Color Stick has a nice bright color, while still hydrating your lips. And you are gonna need that when that cute boy walks over to you with a mistletoe…*WINK WINK* hahahaha jk. That only happens in the movies.*ugly cries inside* At the end of your magical night, make sure to take off your makeup with some Makeup Removers!!

ANYWAY. These are my holiday favs because they make me feel pretty on the inside, and outside. Also because I know these products won’t ruin my face with harsh chemicals 😉

HAPPY SUMMER:Starbucks Refresher Popsicles!

 Hey guys! Happy SUMMMMAH! Here’s a yummy popsicle treat for your summer festivities (like the 4th of July…….) I LOVE Starbucks Refreshers. When I saw they had these babies out, I had to have them. But honestly, they didn’t taste like the original! I had a box full, and they weren’t cheap- I needed to find a way to make the best of them. Why not make them into popsicles?! My mom and I took a trip to Ikea and found these Ice Pop Makers. Leggo!
 DIFFICULTY LEVEL= Your 8 year old cousin could make these with her eyes closed while twerking to Justin Bieber.


  •  Any ice pop mold! These were $2!  
  • Starbucks Refreshers! I bought these at Target($8), but you can get them at any Starbucks!(cute little girl optional)
  • A Freeeeezer! 

The molds come like this! I found that the best way is to mix a little bit of water and powder in a cup. The more powder the better! Otherwise it’ll start to taste like water by the 3rd lick. I know, super tricky! :p I left these in while I ran some errands, but if you’re in a hurry, they’ll freeze in a hour. (depending on how cold your freezer is…I don’t know yo lyf!)

 I’m bringing back Motivational Monday! I found these pictures via Tumblr.
 These are my tips and insight from my own experiences!

1. Don’t Take Things So Seriously.

I know you’re a hard worker and you’re probably working toward something that is going to benefit your life. But it is LIFE. There are so many wonderful things out there that should be worth taking the time to STOP and look at. Stop and smell the roses. Relax, and take a load off. Too much work will eventually make you into a crazed fire breathing dragon. Life will go on. Go to the beach. Go hang out with people who have fun. Break out of your routine. Do something silly. Shake your snow globe as my mom, the Crafty Chica would say!

 2. Love for the Right Reasons.

 Loneliness can be a major pain in the heart. But that shouldn’t be the reason why you’re ready to date, or love again. Love is so sacred and powerful. Loving for the wrong reasons just leaves you more wounded than before. Love yourself first. Write a list of what you deserve, and what YOU could contribute. Love isn’t one sided and shouldn’t be all “take take take.” You’ll know when you’re ready.  
3. Surround Yourself Wisely 

 Surround yourself with happy people. If anything, I’ve learned that happy people are so much more fun! haha I know everyone has their highs and lows. So surround yourself with someone who’ll lift you up, not drag you down. Surround yourself with people who inspire you and push you to be a better you. With that, inspire them to do the same. We’re all hustlin’ to be the best, and instead of fighting, let’s start building each other up! 

These are my tips for Motivational Monday! See you next Monday!!!
