Happy Monday babes, hope you all had a great weekend and for those that were in Coachella, I have to say the heat was real!!! I went out there Saturday for some collaborations and man, it was burning hot! I had tons of fun and I’m ready to start my new week strong, stay focused and meet my goals for the week.
Now more than ever I have been all about positive vibes and I’ve learned in order to feel at peace you have to be wise in the energies you allow into your life. I’ve been getting better, it definitely takes practice and it is a process to see your life manifest into the things you want for yourself. My biggest advice is to pay attention to the little things that make you smile, that make you forget your problems and make you love life because those are the energies you should keep around and enhance instead of focusing on the negative.
It’s been almost a year since I’ve graduated from CSUN which means I can read what I want so since then I have been reading books that interest me which consist of poetry, self love, and motivation. I want to share my top favorite books that have been a game changer in my life, I will link them down below and I truly recommend you to read these.
- The 5 Love Languages
- Love Her Wild
- How To Win Friends and Influence People
- You Are A Badass: How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life
- Why Men Love Bitches
Always remember to smile, be carefree and focus on what makes you happy!

Happy Wednesday babes, we’ve all heard the saying YOLO, living my best life or new year new me, the list can go on and on BUT have you been putting all of this into practice?!
As cliché as it may sound, we do only live once and we should all be living our best life. Life is so short and if you really think about your “big” problems, they really aren’t big at all. There’s so much more to life than feeling negative, sure not everything is perfect but when practicing a positive mindset it can slowly change things around in your life. I have been getting way better at brushing things off and not letting it affect me because at the end of the day I get to choose my happiness. Like Jay-Z said “dirt off your shoulders” and that’s how it should truly be.
It’s been a crazy whirlwind this past year for me, I will be turning 28 soon and all I want and will accept are the good vibes! I have a deep love for music and all genres because it turns my mood around and it’s always there to make me feel good and like I can conquer all things in life. Never allow someone else’s bad vibe come into conflict with your good attitude and I’ve learned that over time. Surround yourself with people that make you happy but most importantly, be happy with yourself. I’ve made some awesome new friends and I have developed great connections that have changed my life this last year which have helped me to be the best version of myself and just enjoy the little things in life!
You don’t meet people by accident and stuff doesn’t happen by coincidence so always pay attention to those signs. I’m a strong believer in that all things happen for a reason even if it doesn’t make sense to us in that moment. Live life and go with the flow and you’ll see that things always fall into place how they’re supposed to! When things are meant to be, they will always be there for you.
I’m going to share some of my favorite songs that always get me in a good mood and have good lyrics as well so definitely check them out because they always help me out to be the bad ass bitch that I am! I stand strong knowing I have a great attitude and I know what I bring to the table so I am here to tell you babes that you are a queen too!!! I have linked my top 5 songs, I hope these songs can speak to you in the way have for me time and time again. xoxo

Guys I finally made it!!! I am graduating with my B.A in Sociology. This has been a long but well earned journey not only for myself but for my family as well and making them proud. I remember when I transferred to CSUN two years ago feeling butterflies in my stomach and not knowing what to expect. Now I’m here, with a degree and starting a new chapter in my life.
I am very excited for all new things to come, the possibilities are endless and I am also proud of myself for pushing through and never giving up. I’ve thought about this moment since I was a young girl and thinking of who I wanted to be in life. I have learned that it’s okay not to have all of the answers at once but the determination is what counts. I have never given up and I have to thank my family for that because they have always taught me continue pushing no matter what obstacles come my way.
My experience at CSUN will be something that I will carry on with me for the rest of my life and to all my peers and professors, thank you! Each class has been able to let me see the world in a whole new way. Everything I did has been worth it and as many may know, it takes long nights, little sleep and tons of stress to get the job done. I want to say to anyone out there going to school, keep pushing and remind yourself of your goals and dreams!
So cheers to the class of 2017 and making the change we want to see in the world.
