So I’m a little devastated because my big external hard drive in which I work off of- I dump all of my photos in there instead of my laptop- got damaged two days ago! I accidentally dropped it and well the rest is history. Super worried, I ran to the nearest shop to get it fixed but only to hear that it is completely damaged and they weren’t sure they could recover any information in there.
I almost sat there in tears as I listened to the young guy explain this to me. The hard drive was full of photos and a bunch of new photos I hadn’t posted yet from New York, Maui, and Los Angeles. We sent it off to hopefully get it fixed and so now all I can do is wait here, impatiently. I’m completely sad but hopeful. Who knew a set of photos can be so heartbreaking when you completely lose them? Anyway, so now that I’m completely out of photos to share with you until I shoot new content, OR until I get my hard drive back (fingers crossed!!), I will share with you instagram photos of my latest trip: Miami.
As some of you may know, I’ve partnered up with Macys as one of their influencers to help celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. We’ve been touring across the country and stopping by key Macys department stores and having a panel discussion of what it means to be a Latina, how our heritage has influenced us and what the future holds for our heritage. It’s been a great conversation full of tips, stories and laughter. The goal is really to help inspire everybody in attendance with our stories. We’ve already made it through New York, Chicago and our latest stop, Miami.
I booked a couple of extra days in Miami after we finished my event at Macys to enjoy a little vacay with one of my best friends. We enjoyed beautiful weather, palm trees, sea food, neon bright bathing suits and a little sun bathing!
Now keep your fingers cross for me that I can recover everything in my hard drive so that I can share with you new content/photos, and make sure to come out to our next Macys destinations to help celebrate with us #HHM! Our next stops are:
- SANTA CLARA – Macys Valley Fair Mall, Today, Oct. 2 @ 6:00pm
- SAN DIEGO, CA – Macys Fashion Valley, Oct. 4th @ 2:00pm
- SAN ANTONIO, TX – Macys North Star Mall, Oct. 11th @ 2:00pm

Our second day in Miami, we decided to keep things mellow and enjoy a full day of being by the pool. For half of the day, we laid out, dipped in the pool and enjoyed sippin’ on piña coladas, guacamole + chips, fish tacos and shrimp ceviche. A relaxed day of doing absolutely nothing but enjoy amazing company, food and conversations.
After being by the pool most of the day, we went back to our room to rest and work on a couple of emails before we headed off to the beach. We drove down to South Pointe beach a couple of hours before the sun set and settled down, listened to music, got in the water, wrote sweet sayings in the sand and finally watched the sun set beautifully.
Hadn’t had a relaxed day like this day in a while.. what was so perfect about this trip was that it was not a work trip. It was a little getaway to freshen up and relax before going at it again. Best of all? Got to experience it with my close friends Betty and Mathieu, and of course Temoc!
