You've got a friend in me... Quick shout out to my boyfriend for inspiring me to blog again. Honestly Eric is my biggest fan and best friend in the world and I could not be more grateful for him. In September, I finally got to visit Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World (I am officially an Annual Passholder!) My brother Nick and I grew up watching Toy Story on repeat so this was a really exciting trip for me. I feel like Disney World is my escape. It is the best place to just "be a kid" and forget about school and adult-ing for a a minute.
For those of you who have not visited or are not familiar with Toy Story Land, Walt Disney World (WDW) imagineers designed this land to make you feel like you're a toy in Andy's backyard. And honestly we all did! It was amazing the detail that WDW put into this land, there were toys everywhere like blocks and tables made out of "Baby Bell Cheese". Fastpasses are the way to go for the Slinky Dog rollercoaster, which is 10/10, but the line is on average 1.5+ hours long.
Total side note, but I wore Converse High Tops... and ended up with mad blisters and purchasing overpriced Minnie Mouse flip-flops by the afternoon. While I absolutely adore my high tops, they just are NOT meant for the miles on miles you walked in WDW. Also for all my fellow type one diabetes readers, as you know our feet tend to swell easily. So I definitely recommend airy shoes because my feet were very swollen.
While we are on the subject, I was extremely nervous to take on WDW as a recently diagnosed type one diabetic. What I learned from my trip is to definitely stay hydrated! I drank water pretty much every hour. It is really important as a diabetic to be hydrated, especially in the Florida heat. Another tip is to check your blood sugars often, but especially while you are just sitting in lines! This is the perfect time to either test or check your monitor. That way if your blood sugars are dropping you know to stop for a snack (and trust me in WDW you're in the land of snacks) or if you are running on the high side you have plenty of time to add some insulin before you step on the ride! I hope these tips help you whether you are heading to a Disney park or any other amusement park. I really want to start sharing more about my type one diabetes and how I manage it.
Thank you for reading my blog and being such amazing supporters! I forgot how much fun it is to share with you all and look forward to sharing more content. Wishing an amazing week to you all!
Hi, so I know it has been a minute since I have written on the blog but I had major technical difficulties, but don't worry I am back and I am better than ever. As all of my long time readers know I tend to be a basic b*tch from time-to-time (sue me!) so of course, when I heard the most instagramable museum in the world was coming to Miami, I knew I had to get my hands on tickets. For those of you who are living under a rock, the Museum of Ice Cream is a taste-filled and colorful experience that can currently be found in both Miami and San Francisco.
My BFF and pink-loving partner in crime, Allie and I went because let's face it we will do anything for the gram, even pay $44 (sorry to my wallet!) It was a once in a lifetime experience for sure. We definitely took full advantage of all the rooms and really enjoyed taste testing all the delicious treats from a chocolate shake topped with pink whip cream to melted ice cream (which gave my a sugar rush I never need to experience again).
But in all honesty it was a fun girl's day and I definitely recommend it for anyone who takes their Instagram game as serious as I do or has a sweet tooth like mine. As always you can shop my look below and under the 'My Looks' tab. A word of advice, snatch my BaubleBar earrings quick...like I am getting them in every color (sorry not sorry).
Have you been to the MOIC? Let me know below. Well, thank you for stopping by the blog. You make my heart very happy! Enjoy your week and please feel free as always to slide into my DMs or comment below if you have any questions or comments. XO

Hey gorgeous. As some of you may now, I am in my twenties (hashtag adulting--kinda!) So in honor of what is promised to be some of the best years of my life I wanted to share ten lessons you should know by and for your twenties.
I am also sharing one of my favorite go-to outfits with you all. If you are an OG reader of mine, you know that I have a love-hate relationship with off the shoulder tops. I love how they look on me, but I hate that I anytime I bend, lift my arms, or move in anyway (btw, I'm Cuban so I talk with my hands a lot, haha) the shirt shifts. Oh they also get all messed up via a seat belt so here's a quick fashion tip, when wearing an off the shoulder top make sure before you step out you fix your top...trust me on this one.
Anyways, I found this off the shoulder top (with straps too, I just usually tuck them in) at Macy's in one of my favorite colors, white, so you know I had to buy it. I swear I have more white tops currently in my closet than most people have in a lifetime. It's a serious addiction. What I love is that this top is lightweight so I don't melt under the Miami sun and pairs great with jeans! By the way: On my sneak peek,Instagram post I couldn't find the exact top to link, but I finally found it (thank you shopping stalker skills) and linked it below and here.
Happy Monday! I hope you are sipping on plenty of coffee after your fun weekend. Today on the blog I am excited to share a new workout place I tried along with some of my blogger friends. Ever since I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, in March it has been my goal to maintain a healthy lifestyle (with a few sweets here and there, of course! Haha) So to say I was excited to try pilates would be an understatement. My mom actually takes pilates so I was familiar with it but didn't understand the hype until I attended a Pilates ProWorks class.
Pilates ProWorks is a modern twist on working out with classes like pilates and boxing. My pilates class was definitely challenging, but it was great. I am the queen of complaining about working out, so you could bet that I struggled and wished I was taking a "power nap" versus "powering" through the workout. But I have to say it was an empowering experience! By doing the class I realized I am a lot stronger than I thought. Truth is, I am my toughest critic.
What I love about Pilates ProWorks, other than their amazing Miami-native owner, Summer Christen, is that the classes are fun. Summer taught the class and it was a great workout! It was fun to blow off steam after a long day of classes. Are you ready to work, work work, work (*read that in Rihanna's voice*)? Then take a pilates or boxing class and get your summer body ready! The address and information is below, make sure you let them know I sent you!
I hope you all have an amazing week! And by the way, you deserve that second cup of coffee. Haha! XO
