I looked at myself in the mirror. I am not sure if I am shocked or saddened... or even relieved.

For the last six or more years, I have avoided mirrors.

It's not really a vanity thing, at least not when I dig deeper into the reasons I avoid mirrors but more psychological.  Don't get me wrong, there are SOME reasons that are related to vanity but not 100%.

For some reason on Tuesday, I looked long and hard at myself in the mirror.  I mean, I REALLY looked.  I looked beyond the obvious.  I looked past my cratered skin that is in desperate need of moisturizing.  Beyond the eyebrows that are begging for a wax.  Beyond the fine lines that have started appearing despite my hiding from the sun.  I looked deep into my own eyes.

Have you ever truly studied your own eyes? They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul and I agree.  But I do believe that the eyes share the truth, they share stories, they share the hopes, the dreams, the disappointments, the sadness, the happiness... you can't hide the truth from your eyes.

Wellness & Hiking in Phoenix

I am so glad that it's finally starting to cool down here in Phoenix.  As Phoenicians, we hibernate for most of the summer and wait patiently for the weather to cool down so we can finally get to enjoy the outside.  Since Emma's head injury, I have packed on some serious weight but it's not really the weight that bothers me as much as the weakness and lack of energy I have from being so sedentary.  I have been taking baby steps towards some health goals I have set.  I am so tired of being tired.

Spice up your morning coffee with Latin flavors (+Giveaway) #LatinTouchCGC

There is nothing like the aroma of coffee.  As a little girl, I loved the smell of it.  My mom was a coffee drinker.  She would meet with her friends on the weekends.  They would drink coffee, play cards and just chat.

I've always thought of coffee as a social drink.  "Let's meet for coffee!".  "Come over for dessert and coffee".  I drink tea when I want to relax and coffee when I am with friends, getting going in the morning or just want the extra boost from a good cup of java.

#FlawlessFinish: SheerCover Makeup Review (And 411 About A Contest!)

Disclaimer: I received SheerCover and the associated products for free for my consideration however my opinions are my own.

Who remembers the SheerCover infomercials? I do! I ALWAYS wanted to try their product.  I wanted to have the beautiful transformation that the women on the program had.  I have pockmarks on my cheeks from cystic acne when I was younger.  I hate it.  It's hard to diffuse it and I have to use a LOT of silicone primer to fill it in.  I have used the other mineral makeup that is extremely popular and I liked it but I never got the coverage I wanted.  I figured that trying out SheerCover can't hurt.

Do Numbers REALLY Matter For Bloggers?

I have been blogging since 2007 but I have only decided to take it professionally in the last year.  When I first began blogging, I didn't focus on followers and I never looked at Google Analytics.  As a matter of fact, I only installed it a little over a year ago.  Do numbers really matter when it comes to monetizing? Yes and No.
