The Selfish Suarez's


July 9, 2019

You're cramming your books from your last class into your locker, the second bell rings. Crap late to 6th period again. The remaining students in the hallway scatter like roaches in a suddenly lit room. After speedily shuffling down the hallway with your Vera Bradley tote thwacking against your back, you're finally in the door way of Ms. Cordells classroom. A mixture of dread and second hand embarrassment overwhelm you as you register the words on the white board. TODAYS AGENDA: SEX EDUCATION.

Raise your hand if you've learned WAY MORE in your mid to late twenties about the inner workings of your cooter than during any sex-ed class in school. ME TOO. I can't believ...

If I had to make a list of things that make me feel like a HBIC (Head Bitch In Charge), wearing 'bomb-ass work clothes' and having 'a fresh set of claws' would be at the very top. No matter what industry you're in, if you're in an office setting, I firmly believe you will perform better if you feel good. Don't act like you haven't heard the saying "look good, feel good, do good".  Upgrading your wear-to-work attire doesn't have to leave you overdrawn if you know where to look. I may not need to be on a BAB budget (Broke Ass Bitch budget) anymore but why waste money on clothes that are 2-3 times the cost? 

Let's start with shoes. Since I am about 3 feet ta...

'Oh my God, what's your secret?'. Let's be real, if I had a dollar for every time I've been asked this question I wouldn't be working 11 hour days. Over the last 9 years my weight has been some what of a roller coaster and May of last year was one of my higher points on the scale. My downfall is a toxic mixture of laziness and late night binge snacking. Unfortunately my addictive personality doesn't translate to working out consistently, somehow there is always an excuse. One thing I can do however is stick to a lifestyle change. Notice how I didn't say diet? Diets are garbage, they're temporary, and if you lose weight fast you'll gain it all back even faster. Los...

Guys... lets not lie to ourselves. I'm not going to change myself JUST because its a new year. I may try, but it will most likely last about 3 weeks then I'll be right back to eating cookie butter covered in Lays crumbs laying on the couch. So, here is my idea: I am going to blog about being healthy and post a whole bunch of shit about it on Youtube and Instagram, really just documenting my journey and progress, that way I'll keep myself accountable. Nothing like embarrassing yourself on the internet in order to remain accountable right? At the end of each week I'll be doing a weigh in, progress pictures and measurements which I will be posting to this blog and...

I used to buy products JUST to review them in hopes to get more views on videos. Can you imagine how much money I've wasted? LIKE ALOT! Thank goodness I've been a tad smarter with my moneys. Here is a list of the products I regret buying over the passed year.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette- I literally had a break down while filming a look with this palette because I couldn't make it work. No that isn't an exaggeration,  I cried like a little bitch. No matter what I did none of the colors would blend and looked super muddy. Many people justify the short comings of this palette by saying things like "its loose pressed pigment" or "its not meant to be ble...

After buying a home you may be asking yourself "How do I make my home look nice despite being broke?". On this installment of Home Decor Hacks we'll be going over deals I've recently taken advantage of! 

Michaels Craft Store

Find chargers under $2.00 that will perfectly accentuate your table setting here.

Stay with me, $400 may be alot of moneys but when it comes to panel beds with tufted headboards thats a STEAL. 

Find this headboard and MANY more like it Here.

 A set of matted framed photos adds a touch of class to any room.

Pay no attention to the fact that some of the photos are side ways.... I'm stupid and ordered most of them in the...

A few months ago I was on the hunt for an oversized mirror with a pretty frame......for under $100. I found one at Marshalls for $45.00 but the frame was a bong water grey color. MICHAELS CRAFT STORE TO THE RESCUE! These metallic paints are about $10.00 and they are the bomb. See all available colors Here.

I lined the edges of the mirror with painters tape and painted the frame.  I also went rogue and painted other things in my office such as this mermaid that was once a doodoo brown rust color, now she's fabulous. I am about to paint EVERYTHING in our house, including Tony and our bulldog.

Nothing brightens my day more than stumbling across a new blog whose posts I can spend hours perusing. I've recently had the pleasure of interviewing a few fabulous local women who are the creative forces behind some of the best blogs in Tampa. Do yourself a favor by subscribing to their blogs and following them on Instagram, you can thank me later. Let's get on with the interviews shall we?
