5 things they didn’t mention about being a influencer/ blogger…

Hi babes, are you a influencer/ blogger or maybe looking to get started? Well I’m here to share five things they forgot to mention…

I’m going to share some tips and a quick story on how I started back in 2014 and OMG I can’t believe it’s been that long!

The number one question I always get asked, even to this day is how did I start blogging?

I simply started taking pictures of my outfits but it was so different back then, I had my first blog on blogspot and I remember uploading 10-15 pictures of the same outfit and describing my thought process on how I paired everything together which is INSANE you guys! I look back and see how much things have changed. My blog has shifted to a lifestyle brand and fashion will always be a part of me so I still post my outfits daily on Instagram.


  1. Time and effort for creating content
  • I would say one of the most important things when being a influencer/ blogger is taking the time and effort to create content. I have noticed a huge difference in my content and the quality of it. I’ve always bounced back and forth with using my phone and camera for pictures but for the past year and a half, my pictures have all been taken from my iPhone 7 Plus. You don’t need a fancy camera, you need good angles and good lighting, this has become my preference and it’s so much more convenient and feels more authentic to me.

2. Having tough skin

  • It’s important to be vulnerable and show emotion but at the same time I believe that being a influencer/ blogger, you must have tough skin because you’re exposing your life for everyone to see and not just that but your creative side. Before I decided to take the plunge into the blogger world, I was definitely a little nervous of how I was going to be perceived especially because there were already so many other bloggers out there. In that moment I remember saying, “I’m doing this for myself and because it’s something I love!” As the years have passed, I have grown in so many ways but I still remain with the same idea of doing this for myself because it truly is a passion of mine. The world can be a scary place but you can’t let that hold you back, so I challenge you to get out there and be fearless!

3. Create your own path

  • This is another huge tip in my book that I feel a lot of people forget to mention, I’m such a firm believer of doing what fits YOUR style and growing that into your brand and what defines you. When I started blogging I had around 1k followers and I remember comparing my Instagram to other girls who had way more followers and I found myself quickly realizing it just didn’t work for me. At the time, a lot of bloggers were posting flat lays of their outfits so I thought it was what I had to do in order to gain a following which then turned into stress/pressure to keep up with the same concept and forcing content that wasn’t me at all. I began cleaning out my Instagram and went back to focusing on my outfits. I’ve stayed true to my style since then which I would consider to be affordable yet stylish for the girl next door, it’s relatable which is 100% me! So what might work for someone else doesn’t mean it will work for you, follow your gut and your passion despite what anyone else is saying or doing, you got this!

4. Be consistent

  • You have to be consistent no matter what if you want to be a influencer/ blogger. People want to see their brand grow but slack off so you have to ask yourself if this is something you really want to dive into? When I started blogging back in 2014 I would post about three times a week and recently started posting once a week because I want quality content as I mentioned earlier, my blog has shifted into more of a lifestyle brand which includes fashion, fitness, places where you can eat and go out to. So although things have shifted and expanded into other areas, the consistency has always been there. Instagram is where I post daily and I love interacting through my stories so that people can feel like they can relate because I am just a regular girl. As your audience grows, they want to see your journey and follow along so being consistent is important. I’ve unfollowed tons of people who are not consistent on social media because it makes me feel like they don’t take it as serious. Remember that people follow you because they look forward to pictures, tips, etc.

5. Your time will come

  • I want to leave you all with this last point to leave things on a good note, to inspire you because there is no need to rush or compare your journey with someone else’s success. As cliché as it sounds, it truly helps when you keep doing you and most importantly having fun with it!! Being a blogger/influencer is meant to share YOUR passion, not to please others or imitate others. This shouldn’t feel as pressure to anyone because it defeats the entire purpose of it all. I quickly learned to go at my own pace and even though I don’t have a huge following like other influencers do, I still keep going because I’m doing it for the right reasons. I love connecting with others and being a open book because we’re all unique in our own special way.

A’GACI Summer Playsuit

I live for weekends and this playsuit via http://www.agacistore.com is giving me life! I love the romper style with the long back to flow in the breeze, it’s playful and fresh for those hot summer days ahead! This week has been extremely hot in the Los Angeles area and this playsuit allowed for some movement while still keeping things chic.

I have been all about trying new styles, prints and colors and I’m loving the mixture on this one. It’s all in the details and the choker neckline is definitely in right now, it adds a different element, you can zip it up in the back and of course we can’t forget the pockets! So this playsuit is definitely a winner all around.

I wanted to keep things chic and dressy so I wore my new black heels via http://www.gojane.com they are the perfect statement that says, “watch out, I’m here!” Every girl needs a pair like this, they are timeless and can be worn with anything.

Enjoy the look!

Viva La Bonita Denim Dress

Denim is THE item to have in your closet right now and I can’t seem to get enough of it!

I have denim shorts, tops, jackets, skirts, you name it and I want it. This cold shoulder denim dress via https://www.instagram.com/vivalabonita/ is my new obsession and of course I fell in love even more with the rose patch on the front.

Let’s take a minute to appreciate this beauty of a gem because it’s perfect and comfortable for spring and summer. I love that comes in a loose fit, you can wear it out with some converse which I plan on doing soon or like I did hear with a pop of color.

Not only is this dress comfortable but it also comes with pockets which is a major YES in my book! I kept this look minimal to let the dress stand out, make sure to click the link above to check out their website.

I love all of their items and they are coming out with tons of new stuff that you need to get your hands on! They have something for every girl out there and I love that it relates to our Latino culture!

Enjoy the look! xoxo

A’GACI Valentine’s Day Look

I love this time of year because I get so much inspiration for Valentine’s Day outfits and today I will be sharing the perfect outfit you can wear featuring www.agacistore.com

Click the link above to check out tons of cute items you can get for yourself just in time before the special day arrives.

Valentine’s Day is all about wearing either pink, red, floral prints and all of the girly stuff you can think of so when I saw this Romance Floral Flounce Romper

I completely fell in love with everything from the print, mesh details, to the mock neck because it’s chic and sexy at the same time.

I have linked the exact item so make sure to click above and it will redirect you to the exact item.

This cute romper comes with ruffles and gives off a soft and elegant look as well.

The material is stretchy and comfortable to my body so it is definitely perfect for date night or even for a night out with the girls.

I wanted a simple and chic look to keep the attention on the romper so I did light makeup with a pink lip and a low ponytail to show off the back details.

To finish off the look I wore my blush heels to make the floral print pop more and my look was complete!
