Rizos on the Road

Rizos on the Road is the symbolic definition of what it means to embrace your curls with cultura and spice. As curly hair chicas, we must understand we are different, but unique because we all have a different story to share about our curl journey. With that said, I know you have all been on this boat of questions being asked by people.

1. Where are you from?
2. Can I touch your hair?
3. Does your family have curly hair? or did you perm your hair?
4. Why do you look so different compare to your siblings?
5. Do you know Spanish?

Most of the time we don't mind answering the questions because we like to share our story, but there are times at least for me when I started to feel like I was being categorize by my features.  My journey of embracing my hair was a struggle at a young age for the simple fact that young girls said, "what's wrong with your hair?" As a matter fact, at a young age, I learned to master wearing headbands and doing really tight ponytails to avoid my curls from being noticeable. I would also brush my hair out several times at night thinking it would be more straight the next day. And as I got older, I came really close to chemically straightening my hair, but thank God I didn't. Instead, I learned to straighten my hair with a plancha (an iron) because I idolized women in telenovelas and magazines con pelo lacio.

Mirina Girl

Once you know about accessorizing thick layered metallic necklaces, you will get the idea about making a statement with little effort. Besides, rules are meant to be broken when mixing metals and experimenting with textiles and Mirina Collections knows how to round up the latest approved inspo for statement necklaces.

Check out the blue-boho necklace by Mirina Collections. The necklace is  handcrafted with copper and silver plating making the detailed artistically unique. This piece will have you speaking in volumes and you can simply pair the accessory with a black and white  striped top, boyfriend jeans and chucks.

In addition to having a great outfit, remember to revamp your curls with the coconut hibiscus curl style milk and curl enhancing smoothie. These two products will make your curls feel fantastic. As for my curls, I usually apply about a nickel to a quarter size onto my damp hair before diffusing. I never exceed the amount because if I do, then the products will weigh down on my hair since my curls are more wavy on the outside and kinky on the inside. Remember, every curly chica  is different and only you will know what works best for your hair.

Makeup to Wakeup by Pixi

 Hola Chicas! I hope you are off to a great start, as some of you know about two weeks ago I took a trip to Los Angeles for an event with Google space. I drove from San Diego to Venice because I was on a mission to really get to know what my next step should be with my personal business goals. With that said, before arriving to the event, I had the opportunity to explore Venice and I came across the pixi beauty store and I didn't think twice about skipping it.

So, I crossed the street and stepped right into the front door to explore the all white retail space. I honestly wanted to film the whole experience, but was limited on time, so I took advantage to ask two things: 1.) Does Pixi have great concealer coverage for under eyes? 2.) Does the store offer a freshen up mini makeover? Answer to both questions, Yes!
