Lipstick and Brunch

I moved from Tegucigalpa, Honduras to the USA six years ago. I am fully bilingual and my passion for beauty transcends time—it’s what I’ve always done: from launching the first newspaper in high-school, to working in a women’s magazine as a beauty columnist, make-up artist and photographer and interning at a local magazine in Houston; this life is all I’ve known and I love it! I was a journalist and photographer back in Honduras but now I am a full-fledged beauty blogger & photographer in Texas!

In this crazy blogging journey I have been featured as a stylish Latina on a national website and as one of the best beauty bloggers in Texas. I’ve even chatted with Kate Hudson on the phone, been featured in the biggest national newspaper in my home-country, had Jason DeRulo repost my photo and taken selfies with Nigel Barker.

But my most exciting journey is the one I share with my husband who I love to death! We are total opposites but can’t live without each other. We have a puppy named Gala and live a super happy and sweet life together in Sugar Land, Texas where we love to explore the dining scene, cook together, attend concerts and hang out with friends. We also love to travel which you will see in many of my posts.

This blog is a representation of what I am today and who you can be too! I was always told that I had to choose one thing to do in life but I didn’t want to choose just one thing when I moved to Houston. My blog is proof that all you can do can turn into your job! I hope you leave the site feeling motivated, full of a zest for life, willing to try a new hair color or lipstick and that you come back every time to get your fix of my bold and bright life.

Houston Fashion Bloggers named my blog Lipstick and Brunch as “The Best Beauty Blog in 2014 and 2015” as well as “Best Topic Blog 2015.”
