I’m throwing a Reggaeton & Dancehall PARTY this SUNDAY to raise money for the 700 families affected by the Aug 7th ICE raids. It broke my heart to see all those children sleeping in their school gym so scared and unsure if they would ever see their parents again. Join me for a night of solidarity through PERREO ALL NIGHT for a cause! 100% of ticket sales will go to @lets give who is traveling to Mississippi to help the families directly . Ticket link in bio! . Thank you to @dnobar for hosting and @latenightlaggers @twistedforsugar @lamichoacanaboyleheights for sponsoring! Y’all don’t want to miss this party!
Every time I go to NY it goes to my head so quick and I feel like I’m SO NY ! 😂😂 I’ll be over here ready to trade in my Doyers shirt for Yankees gear hahaha WHY am I like this? 😅😂🤣 I love u LA, but New York makes me feel all special 😊😁 lmao . 📸 @henryknightny
@partyskinny and I , two Mexican girls from the hood just activated our own booth at MF @beautycon 😩🙏🏽 You can’t talk about LA culture without talking about Latinos. We wanted our community to finally see themselves represented in a mainstream beauty event in a way that celebrates our contributions to what makes Los Angeles beautiful and prosperous. Our #LAtina booth is a love letter to our city’s women, culture and hustle. #LAtina is sisterhood, black and brown love, hard working Jefas, family, street art, low rider culture, street vendors, fashion... community! In the last few weeks we saw our family and community come together as they always do to support our vision and create magic. My cousin @nessi_arte hand painted our 30ft mural, @brujitaskincare @lamichoacanaboyleheights gave me milk crates, @josefigz designed our 24ft piñata and let us borrow his paleta cart, my cousin @pradoscreations made our custom papel picado, my cousin @vndrvs made this video, and SO many cousins and friends came out to gift us their labor. As we stood amazed for 2 days at the crowds of Mujeres that came to @beautycon SPECIFICALLY to support our booth, we realized that #LAtina is so much bigger than us. It’s about our community coming together to be intentional about supporting brands that represent and support us. About us fighting back against the attacks on our community by NOT hiding in fear, but standing proud and taking up SPACE. F your racism and anti-immigrant bigotry We out here and we’re not going anywhere! ✊🏽 @rizoscurls @hijadetumadre #RizosReina #MakeJefaMoves
Setting up our #LAtina booth like...
Do y’all remember when you were little and you wore your brand NEW crispy, untouched shoes for the FIRST time and felt like EVERYONE could tell they were new? And couldn’t WAIT for someone to ask you “Are those new shoes?” Or say “I like your new shoes!” .... Well that was ME in this video 😆 lol Ppl always ask me, “Why are u always happy?”... And honestly it’s prob because I’m still a kid at heart and look forward to everyday things that STILL make my whole day. I never stopped waking up in the morning like “TODAY I get to wear my new air forces and I’m SO EXCITED!!” 😂😂😂 . (What do y’all do that makes you happy? ) . 🎥: @nathalyprado
📣Paletas, elotes, churros, fruta! 📣 One of the things I most love about LA is street vending! My favorite items to buy from my local street vendors are flowers, fruit, and elotes 😊😊 I can’t just choose one! (WHAT IS YOUR FAV THING TO BUY? ) . Art Director & MUA: @josefigz
This is from our dance class that @shoedazzle organized for its influencers w @thealiyajanell whom as y’all know is the most amazing dancer ever! I was SO nervous to even take the class. The idea of possibly not remembering the moves and looking dumb in front of everyone TERRIFIED me. Last time I went to a dance class was for hs cheerleading lmao But once I got to the class I realized all the other girls there were just as nervous as me, we’re all human and who cares if I didn’t do well! I’m not a dancer and this is supposed to be fun. Lol That moment I decided I was trippin for almost allowing fear to keep me from doing anything. My happiness is tied to growth, and the only way to grow is to make myself comfortable w being uncomfortable as I learn and grow. 😌😊
Reminiscing to beach life... Especially right now since I’m tired af and can’t even hear my own thoughts because they’re building a house directly next to my bedroom window and get woken up to drills, talking, music, and other lovely construction noises by 6am E V E R Y. D A Y. 🙃🙃 It’s so loud I’ve even considered moving in w my parents until they’re done building... But then I think about my mom’s 10pm curfew and my current 6am construction alarm clock magically doesn’t sound so bad anymore. 😅 lol Trying to get woken up to wave sounds instead 🌊 🏝 #1stWorldProblems .

You can’t talk about LA culture without talking about Mexican culture. 🇲🇽✌🏽 If you’re an LA native, it’s impossible not to embrace Mexican culture. Our food, hustle, music, lowriders, art, street vending etc have become synonymous with what it means to live in LA. Immigrants and in particular Mexicans are vital to what makes LA beautiful and powerful ✊🏽💪🏽. . 🗣So If you don’t like us DON’T👏🏽MOVE👏🏽HERE👏🏽... cus u WILL get bombarded w this contagious, rich, beautiful culture whether you like it or not. But if you show our ppl love, you may just get invited to the #Prado bbq 😜🇲🇽💋🇲🇽 #LosAngeles #TheRealLA
Thank you @forbes @vivnunez for highlighting my @rizoscurls #LatinaLadder Tour 😩🙏🏽 What started off as an unrealistic idea has now grown into a nationwide tour that I’m so incredibly proud of. Thank you to all the amazing women involved, listening to y’all be so vulnerable and transparent while sharing your entrepreneurship journeys has been so inspiring. . We still have our LA (at @the wing ) and NY (at @dermablendpro ) stops to complete, I can’t wait to continue sharing, listening and growing with y’all! 🙏🏽❤️ Gracias amigas, feeling so honored and blessed to continue building community w y’all! 😩😭 #RizosReina #RizosCurls 📸 @rancellopez
