I decided to get a little personal today and create a list of random facts about myself. So here it is guys get to know me a little more! (hopefully you won’t think I’m too strange LOL)
Fact 1: Spanish was my first language growing up. I learned english going to school.

Fact 3: I love to paint and I used to draw really well when I was a kid. My favorite thing to draw was cartoon characters
Fact 4: I am an organized messy person….if that makes sense??
Fact 5: I love my curly hair. Of course when I was younger I used to hate my curls and for a while had to go through a transition phase because I damaged my curls so badly from straightening my hair constantly.

Fact 14: The reason I got into wearing makeup was because I hated my nose for the longest time. I always said I was cursed with the Rivera beak LOL! As I got older, figured out the power of contour, and learned to love my self, I joke about the curse now. I like my snoze, it suits me.
