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!

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

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!
What are some of your fave songs right now?! 
Tweet me!

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

Hey guys!
Last weekend I had the chance to experience the #CoxGigLife at Chase field for the twitter party! The internet was SO FAST! I’ve never experienced selfies uploading so quickly. Here are some pictures from the event!

“Gig Girl” with the Cox Team!

Selfies with the Cox Team!
I had so much fun at the Cox Gig Life Experience
With the One GIG Internet from Cox being so fast I had more time to do other projects at home like, plan out my Vines, write songs, edit pics with me and Joe Jonas…..LOL
But seriously, this new internet will give you time to do more in your day without having to wait for your average, slow, internet to load. That sounds good to me! 
I even had more time for dance breaks!

ANYWAY! Go check it out for yourself!! 


Love, Maya

As you guys have probably seen from my recent vines- I’M ALL ABOUT #THEGIGLIFE! The gig life is a NEW era of internet from Cox. You can sync, stream, game AND upload on multiple devices without your internet slowing down with One GIG Internet from Cox. For all you number peeps: You can run all of your devices at the same time, download 100 tunes in 3 seconds, download an HD movie in less than 60 seconds and upload 1,000 photos in about a minute.

Same, Mulan. Saaaaaame…

In a household of four who all use the internet like we work for NASA during take off, I think my family would LOVE #TheGigLife.

Let me tell you what I’d do with #TheGigLife.

  • I’d upload videos to YouTube 10x faster.
  • Make more Vines of my dogs (LOL jk. of my chinz)
  • Get more fans on the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game (not joking………)
  • Reblog more gifs of sloths (BTW, check out their Tumblr Page: coxcomm.tumblr.com)
  • Watch more videos of Miranda Sings on YouTube
  • Sing more Disney karaoke on YouTube
  • Re-watch the entire series of Dawson’s Creek for the third time on Netflix. (Also not joking)

The possibilities are endless! In all seriousness, it would benefit my growing brand! Think of all the videos I could crank out? Think of all the VINES!

Wanna try it for yourself?
Thursday, August 7th, 5pm.
I’ll be at the Cox GIG Life Experience at Chase Field Plaza at 4th and Jefferson!  Join our Twitter Party! The party will be on August 7th at 6pm MT.
Here is a link to the invitation where you can RSVP: http://bit.ly/1m671ry

On game days from July 31st through August 10th Cox will be there starting two and a half hours before the first pitch, where you’ll get to try out the One GIG Internet from Cox and stream exclusive content on devices via Cox WiFi from Fox Sports Arizona and the Arizona Diamondback.
