    Mental Health + Social Media.

    I have put this topic off for a while for several reasons. The most obvious one would definitely be that it’s something so private that we choose when and who we open up about it. That’s totally fair, so today I wanted to share my experience. First thing’s first, what is mental health, well let’s Google it. According to Google, it is: a person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being. That can range any where from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, etc. I know I always say this, but if you have been around for a while then you know that I have now gone to therapy. If…

    What’s To Come With Soy Libre

    Hi friends! So glad that you decided to stop by. Today I figured I would share some of things I really want to focus on here at Soy Libre and on Instagram. If you’re coming straight from my post on Instagram, then you know that I was away for two days and by that I mean, I was just not active on social media. I felt really uninspired, I didn’t know what to post about, and I kinda felt like I wasn’t being my authentic self and that is definitely not how I want to come across. I always say I want to be as transparent as possible and that…

    Hair Day’s Made Easy.

    When I was little girl, I had insanely long hair and hated when my mom would do my hair. It was always braided because there was really nothing else that would help from keeping it tangled. I grew up hating having my hair brushed because my mom didn’t really make I a fun experience. This story however is not about me, it’s about little miss Leya. I have made it a really strong point in our routine to make this hair experience a good one. I play her favorite show, let her pick out her bow or scrunchies and these are some of the products that make our lives easier.…

    Curent Fave Foundation: barePRO by Bare Minerals.

    Happy Sunday loves! Today we’re talking make up-woohoo! Specifically the Bare Minerals barePRO liquid foundation. Ever since I became a mom I’ve noticed that my want and expectations for make up have changed. I sleep less and am up earlier. I work for 8+ hours, and usually after I’m still running around like a mad woman, running errands, cleaning, cooking, you name it. As a mom I feel like I’m constantly putting foundations to the test and without even trying. I purchase so many different ones that claim to be long lasting and matte from the drug store to high end and there has been a few that have definitely…

    End of Summer Lucheon: Bringing Awarness to Abuse.

    Hi loves, so glad you decide to swing by because today I’m chatting about a topic that is very sensitive but so close to my heart. Last Saturday, September 9th, I was invited to attend a luncheon hoested by the lovely Camaryn, also known as @camarynsullivan on Instagram. Her event was at 264 Fresco in Carlsbad, and not only was it so beautiful but it was meant to really expose and inspire other women to the help or support anyone who has been in an abusive relationship. She invited Brandee, a represenative from the Women’s Resource Center to speak and share more about domestic violence, and how domestic violence is…

    Seattle Day 4: The Pink Door – Celebrating My Dad’s 66th Birthday + Thoughts On Moving.

    Goodbye’s tend to suck. The last day here has been nothing but great, we didn’t get up extremely early again, we kinda just lounged around in the morning and then around 10:30 am headed to downtown to Moore Coffee Shop. I’ve been wanting to go there because their coffee decorations are just so cute and creative.   After coffee, we headed down to Pike Place and walked around the market. We finally got the chance to really stop and browse and do a little shoppin’- mainly shirts, key chains and little souvenirs. Pike Place market really has a special place in my heart, there’s so many little nooks and holes…

    Seattle Day 1: Pike Place, Space Needle + Chihuly Garden.

    Greeting from Seattle, Washington! You guys, coming here was really something I’ve been having on my agenda for quite some time now. I’ve always known I wanted to come for two reasons, coffee and weather! As most of you may know, I’m not a summer gal, I love me some grey rainy weather. My family and I decided to keep our new tradition going continue to travel together. Last year we took off to explore the big apple for my 25th birthday and we had a great time. I must say, I love that we’re doing this! My parents are both older and I want to enjoy and really cherish…

I’m a huge lippie lover, anything from gloss to liquid lips just give to me because it’s my jam.

    Choices.

    Wellness Wednesday where have you been all my life! I’ve been a little disconnected but there’s just been so much going on this month.  Mainly with my personal life, some exciting things are happening as you know, but still working on that balance over here. Anyway, today I wanted to touch on choices. I’ve been thinking about maybe starting a series on little chapters of my life that have brought me here but still debating on that. So, choices. Over the course of last month to now, I felt so down due to choices I’ve made in my life. I’m slowly learning that whether those choices are good or bad,…

    My First Therapy Session.

    Hi friends, happy Tuesday! We’re officially back to the grind and I must admit that I’m not ready. I definitely enjoyed my long weekend, spent a lot of time with family which is a bit rare for us given that we all work and our schedules are so different. Anyway, I wanted to share with you all my experience with therapy. First let me begin by saying that it was not easy. I contemplated on going so many times. I always made so many excuses as to why I didn’t need go. You know that, “I’m fine” saying. Even that Saturday when I finally gathered up the guts to go,…

    I Joined A Book Club!

    This year I decided that it was going to be filled with taking small but mighty leaps. Ever since I was a kid I’ve had a love for reading and writing, I was at the library all the time in elementary and middle school. It was my little safe haven. I haven’t pick up a book in years, and I was slowly beating myself up for it because I haven’t been doing something I love. I can sit here and make a hundred excuses about why I stopped but I won’t, instead I will share with you the exciting adventure that I’ll be going on. I joined the San Diego…

    Brownie Pie with Leya + Jo.

    Baking holds a very special place in my heart. You know, the funny thing is I didn’t grow up baking, you would think right? I didn’t grow up being too involved in the kitchen at all actually. My mom actually hates cooking, she does it out of sheer necessity. You know, she has a husband and kid to feed… well not anymore, but you get the point. My mom is not a very good teacher either, she lacks tons of patience. Funny thing is, I’m quite the opposite. I LOVE to cook and bake. There’s this special feeling about creating something out of some simple ingredients that just makes me…

    Word of the day.

    Hey there! So glad you’re able to join me for another wellness Wednesday. I’m pretty excited to share this idea I’ve been having called ‘word of the day.’ Oh and just side note, I have never done this before. So we’ll be going on this journey together! I’ve been going through several ups and downs over the past few days and when I start to wind down and get in my negative feels, I try to nip it and tell myself one, that it will be ok and two, happy thoughts. I was not always like this, I was actually quite the opposite and would drag myself and those around…

    Let’s Flamingle!

    Hello hello! Happy Sunday loves! Just dropping by to share about the amazing event I attended yesterday evening, along with three reasons why if you’re a blogger (or thinking about starting a blog) you must attend these networking events! Taylor, the lovely mastermind and creator of CABE, hosted this event over in La Jolla at a rooftop with one magical view. Filled with the cutest vendors, fun photo shoots, and amazing bloggers and influencers, it really doesn’t get any better than this. This event reminded me a lot of the first event I ever attended. I went alone,  and that really pushed me to try and get out of my…

    On The Days I Don’t Want To.

    Hey hey hey! We’re officially doing this! I’m so excited to have taken the leap of faith and worked up my nerve to drop all my ideas in a jar and just spontaneously pick one. When I saw this topic was pulled out of the idea jar, I was immediately very nervous. I have to be honest, I get really scared of judgement when it comes to being a mom. I mean judgement is scary and hurtful when it comes to anything in life, but something about motherhood that really hits home. Do any of you moms out there agree? So here’s the topic: How to be a good mother…

    Why I’m On Instagram.

    Hey there! So glad you were able to swing by! If you’re heading over from Instagram then you know exactly what will about to go down, if not then let me fill ya in. Recently I attended an event hosted by the San Diego business babes (@sdbsuinessbabes), which if you’re a blogger and you haven’t attended a blogger/blogging event, then you definitely must because I guarantee you will learn a ton. Anyway, a good friend of mine Laura (@swellandsway) was a speaker at the event providing some tips on how to be intentional and successful on Instagram. One of the main things that stuck with me was, “why are you…

    Practicing Self Care Beyond Just My Body.

    Hey you! Welcome back! So so happy to be blogging again. Not that I left for months but a week is a pretty long time for me lol. I figured the best way to be back was with a wellness Wednesday and to chat about what I have been feeling lately. Today I wanted to dig in to self-care. We’ve all heard about this and know we should take care of ourselves by resting, taking it easy, eating healthy, etc. but at times I think we forget that taking care of our bodies also means our minds and  feelings. Self care revolves around physical, mental, and emotional practice, not just…

    Energy.

    Hey you, welcome back to another wellness Wednesday! Today I wanted to get a little more personal and chat about my diet/health along with energy. Where does my energy stem from, where do I focus that energy, and over all how to I keep it up. I haven’t been on the healthiest kick for such a long time now and I’m so tired of it. I always find myself wanting to try the hot new diet and I feel like those never work out for me. It’s so discouraging! Oh and fact is, I have no diet. And I really want to change that! What first comes to mind as…

Plus, this event was filled with tons or local and super cute vendors. It really was the cutest set up ever! Very instagramable for sure! The panel for this event was all…

I’m going to be sharing 10 things that make me happy and 10 facts about me.

    My All Time Favorite Things To Do With My Daughter.

    Hello beautiful people! I want to begin by saying happy mother’s day, if you’re a mom. I don’t think that there will ever be enough words to describe the love, the sacrifice, the dedication and support and mother truly is. I hope that if you’re a mother you get spoiled today! And tons and tons of hugs and kisses! Ok, moving on… I seriously don’t know what it is, but ever since I became a mother I’m so emotional all the time. I can seriously cry over everything! Anyone else?! Ok, that was just a random thought because when I was writing the paragraph above, I was seriously tearing up.…

    Seattle Day 2: Mo Pop Museum + Great Wheel.

    Hey y’all thanks so much for swinging by! So we’ve kept the mojo going and can proudly say we’ve had a successful day two! Yesterday morning we had a bit of a flop as the place I wanted to go eat (Tilikum Café) was reservations only. I don’t know if I completely missed it on Yelp or if it just didn’t say. But we managed to shake it off and go to the place next door called The 5 Point Café. It wasn’t the ideal place, but it seemed to have a good vibe going due to Sunday football, and they had a wait line, so we thought it had…

    I can’t believe we’re counting down the days! I love it here and I low key don’t want to leave. Insert crying Kim Kardashian emoji here. Yesterday, we had a bit of a late start. The previous days really caught up to us. We were so tired that we didn’t get up till’ about 9:15 am and we were starving! There’s a store right next to the hotel we’re staying it that is pretty similar to our Whole Foods, here it’s called PCC Community Markets. They sell coffee, food, and pretty much everything organic you can think of. We grabbed a quick cup of coffee and some pastries to get…
