I've been contemplating back & forth if I should share this on my social media, because not everyone wants to see you do good. But when I looked at my analytics on Instagram I remembered how many young people follow my account who happen to look up to me in ways that I'll never understand. 😩❤️ It's been 5 years since I was last enrolled in college. Making the decision to drop out came with many up's & many downs. It allowed me to focus a lot of my time to building a name for myself in the beauty industry. But it also came with a lot of losses & a lot of struggles. Mentally, I just wasn't there. I treated college like my presence there alone was good enough to keep my parents off my back about getting a degree. But while I was there I changed my major so many times, because I truly didn't know what I wanted in life. I didn't know who I was yet. But after 5 years of building myself emotionally & mentally, I finally decided IT'S TIME! I love what I do. Being a successful beauty influencer is probably the most exciting thing I could've ever envisioned myself doing. The opportunities, the networking, the chance to reach & connect with people all over the world is something I consider nothing less than a blessing. But I know in my heart that I have a lot more to offer than my love for makeup. Is it something I'm grateful that God blessed me with? Of course! Without it I definitely wouldn't be where I'm at today. But I know I'm here to do more. To impact the world in different ways. I just don't see myself doing YouTube & Instagram for the rest of my life. I see myself still connecting with the world but on a whole other level. You want to be an inspiration to other people out there? Then show them what you are capable of! How could I preach to my daughter about school and the importance of it if I can't even be a prime example for her? I'm ready for this! Will it be easy juggling motherhood, still continuing my beauty influencing career, going to school & still finding time to be myself? HELL NO, BUT THATS NOT ENOUGH TO SCARE ME AWAY FROM DOING THIS! It's never too late. Say hello 👋🏼 to VIVAGLAMKAY, a future journalist! 📝

I am a loud, strong, fierce Latina. Being Latin & not being able to speak the language fluently unfortunately can discredit how Hispanic you really are in our culture. Some parents enforce it and some don't. I mean, it's like you want to stand there with your fellow Latina sisters & brothers, but you don't want to be shamed for not being Latina enough. I can read it, I can write it and I can understand it. Knowing how to speak it shouldn't determine how Puerto Rican I'm allowed to be. It runs through my blood. The Taíno, The Spanish & The African. 🇵🇷 #LatinaAndProud

Only those who've done the big chop will understand what an accomplishment it is to do something as simple as space buns in your hair! 🖖🏼👽 lol

Am I tripping or can you see my freckles through my makeup? 🤔 This almost never happens unless I wear no foundation because I love a full coverage look. I would think after the way I 🎂 it on in my last post it wouldn't be visible but heyyyyy I'm diggin it! 🤸🏼‍♀️😎 btw contacts are from @desioeyes 👁

Highlight & Contour before foundation? 🤔 I seen this technique floating around and I wanted to try it out. I loved it because for some reason I felt like it saved me more time just blending everything together! 🙌🏼 For a 🎂 face like today 😜 I gotta make sure my skin is right with my @farsalicare Unicorn Essence and some 24k Rose Gold Elixir. Anddddd, this @hudabeauty 3D highlighter palette is just straight up disrespectful to other highlighters out there. 😭😭 It's LIFE!!!!! Just look at it 😍😋 Yasssss 💅🏼 Setting spray is @morphebrushes new makeup prep & setting spray 💦 #vivaglamkay #farsalicare #hudabeauty ##hudabeauty3dhighlight #bhcosmetics #wakeupandmakeup #morphebrushes

[SWIPE] You guys know I'm not one to ask. I don't like asking anyone for absolutely anything. But I need help! My best friend's little sister suddenly was diagnosed with alopecia and my heart is breaking for this beautiful girl. She's so young and this has crushed her confidence beyond belief. She had to be taken out of school because she's been having a hard time coping with this, as you can imagine. Children her age are just learning about confidence and self esteem and it hurts me so much knowing that she doesn't feel beautiful because of this. I asked her mother for permission to share these photos with you so you can see how beautiful she is with or without hair. The point of this post is because I wanted to see if any of you had any suggestions or any wig companies out there who would be willing to donate some wigs to her. She's been having a hard time finding wigs because she feels like nothing looks natural on her and she just doesn't feel like herself. They're also having a hard time affording a great quality wig. So please tag any wig company you may know of that you think would be willing to help. Thank you! ❤️ And please let this beauty know how gorgeous she is. I want her to see comments from people all over the world telling her she's gorgeous no matter what! ❤️❤️❤️ If anyone wants to send her even the smallest care package to uplift her spirits you can send it to 22 Boxwood Ct Huntington, NY 11746 ❤️🙏🏼 You can also DM her mother @kelly4alopecia if you are interested in getting more information to send her a wig or anything for that matter. Thank you so much guys! I just got an update from her mom and they're in tears reading the comments. You guys are so amazing!!!! XO....NEW UPDATE: THERE'S BEEN A GOFUND ME ACCOUNT MADE!!! LINK IS IN MY BIO!!!!!!!!! ❤️ This special girls account is @bianca_m_gomez if you guys are interested in sending her any encouragement! ❤️
