One of my favorite things about going back home to Puerto Rico is spending endless hours by the ocean. It is a love my mother installed in my sister and I from a young age, one that we may never shake off. Read More
Doing laundry is not my favorite chore. Like ironing and cleaning the bathroom, it is just dreadful! As a yoga teacher it is quite easy to spend the entire day in your yoga clothes because they are so darn comfortable. Read More
Anyone who knows me knows I love to shop. The excitement of the hunt, the thrill of the find and the satisfaction of a great price! Those little moments make me smile on the inside. Since working for PuraKai my shopping trips have become a little different. Read More
As a child I used to love seeing my mom getting dressed in her best “Dynasty” gowns. She always looked so polished and beautiful. My grandmother was certainly a diva in her own right. I could spend hours going through her jewelry, trying on her shoes and organizing her purses and scarves. Read More
