00:00
Would you consider surgery or other medical procedures to
00:02
change your appearance?
00:03
This isn't a secret.
00:04
I've got my, I've got a breast augmentation.
00:08
You gotta put titties done under Jessica.
00:25
Why is girl I'm here with another episode of Girl.
00:29
Let me tell you with my two home girls.
00:33
I feel good.
00:34
I feel pretty good girl is out.
00:36
So I feel good.
00:38
And what is on your feed?
00:40
My party is all over my feet too.
00:45
Besides the people I've muted, I've muted like 50 people because
00:48
you know, I just muting brings so much.
00:50
I cannot tell you how many people do you have muted?
00:52
Everybody who doesn't know, tells them what is muting is an
00:55
amazing feature on Instagram where you can hide people.
00:58
You went to high school with that you're too afraid to f to follow
01:01
because if you unfollow with beef, if you don't want that beef
01:04
just meet them.
01:05
You can meet their stories.
01:06
You can read their post.
01:06
It's just like if you have anything that you don't wanna see
01:08
But what we are seeing is Britney Spears in her new memoir.
01:11
She's all up all over the place.
01:13
Yeah.
01:13
That whole thing is, are you guys Britney fans?
01:15
Um I'm a, who isn't?
01:17
I'm just curious if you were like die hard Britney growing
01:20
up or?
01:20
Like that was the first album I ever owned.
01:23
What?
01:24
Yeah.
01:24
Like I don't really buy.
01:25
That's you.
01:25
Yeah, like the one more time and um the one where she's in the
01:28
Sprinkle, like the, you know, that shit that Latino parents
01:31
used to the vibe, the sprinkly, like, you know, what is that
01:34
shit called?
01:35
The oh the little Sprinkle, the sprinkly curtains.
01:38
So then what did you, did you, did you guys read her memoir?
01:40
Did you see anything about it?
01:42
I didn't read her memoir but I know there's a lot of people posting
01:44
some of the highlights or like some of the bigger revelations
01:47
and it is absolutely insane.
01:49
But I also think she was so quiet for how many years taking her
01:53
power back.
01:54
It's just crazy.
01:55
I think for me hearing about certain situations that we saw
01:58
play out in real time when we were younger, like the shaving
02:00
of the head like you had brought up off camera and then actually
02:03
getting an understanding of what was really going on because
02:04
all of us can look at somebody's life on social media or in that
02:07
moment in the media and think that it's one thing, but really
02:10
there's so much more going on and you know what's crazy now
02:13
that my sister has two babies and I know how stressful it is
02:16
Like, it's so crazy to have kids, especially when it's a newborn
02:19
and a one year old seeing her like at mcdonald's with a baby
02:22
crying like that is trauma in so many ways and the fact that
02:26
we're, that's what, that's what marinates in her head.
02:28
But she's such a legend and done so much work is really freaking
02:31
sad.
02:32
So I'm glad that she had the opportunity to speak about, you
02:34
know, her real feelings.
02:35
I think people were really harsh on Britney.
02:37
I remember when she did the um toxic not the oops, I did and she
02:41
was in the red everybody.
02:43
Well, that was the one more time but oops, I did it again when
02:45
she came up with the red leather.
02:47
Everyone was like, oh my God, she's super sexual.
02:49
And now if you look at everything in the media, like everything
02:52
is so much more sexual than it was back when she was coming out
02:55
So I just, what do you think about her?
02:56
Now?
02:56
You think that she's like combating a come like, how do you
02:59
feel about her?
03:00
I think she's gonna take a break before she makes a comeback
03:02
But I think like to Jessica's point, I like that.
03:03
She wrote a book.
03:04
I like that.
03:05
She got to take back her on her narrative because a lot like
03:07
everyone spoke on Britney except for Britney like this people
03:10
just talking negatively on her and like I have a comment from
03:13
youtube that still sticks to me today.
03:15
Somebody said I had torpedo titties and I never let that go
03:18
Did you have what?
03:18
Torpedo, torpedo titties?
03:20
Torpedo t to, I don't even know because I don't know.
03:25
But yeah, I mean these comments about your body are so real
03:28
which go, which also leads us to the next thing.
03:30
The Victoria's secret.
03:32
What's going on?
03:34
Getting away from woke, wokeness to like back to get the sexy
03:37
back.
03:38
No pun intended.
03:38
Well, my I have a theory on this.
03:40
I'm taking a book, a page out of your book.
03:41
I think that they were trying to compete with savage Fenty
03:44
because Rihanna is very inclusive.
03:46
Like part of the reason why she's been able to accumulate all
03:48
of her wealth is because a lot of her brands are inclusive.
03:51
So people are seeing that.
03:52
Oh, let's do what Rihanna is doing, but she's probably doing
03:54
it from an authentic and genuine place and Victoria's Secret
03:57
is doing it for the dollars.
03:58
So it, no, you didn't see An Roy because you weren't doing it
04:01
authentic.
04:02
Were you guys watching the Victoria Secret?
04:03
I'm not watching that.
04:04
I watched.
04:07
So here's my, the new one or the old one.
04:10
The old, the new one is a mess.
04:11
The old like growing up like that was a, that was beautiful
04:15
That's what I'm saying is like, ok, I totally under I love that
04:19
Rihanna found her lane and I think she did it authentically
04:22
I think Victoria Secret taking a switch and saying now we're
04:24
going to do this didn't feel authentic, didn't feel genuine
04:27
from people that was a big issue for the backlash.
04:29
But also I loved the old Victoria Secret fashion show.
04:33
I never had an issue with it.
04:34
I understand like it could definitely bring up insecurities
04:37
Ok?
04:37
Like I'm the first one to tell you I fluctuate like crazy.
04:39
I am nothing like what some of these women look like.
04:42
I mean, they're just, they're absolutely stunning.
04:45
I love looking at them.
04:46
Like personally I, I enjoy the reason why on the runway and
04:51
I wanna leave it that way.
04:52
It's fine.
04:52
Can we just leave it like that?
04:54
Like there's just some things in culture that I don't, I feel
04:57
like maybe just they shouldn't be touched and there's other
04:59
lanes for other companies to come in and every brand is different
05:02
and I just love what Victoria's Secret had.
05:04
You know, I just love that.
05:05
I don't know.
05:06
I just think to me that the fashion show is so iconic.
05:07
I think I think that it is iconic.
05:09
I hate to be, I'm giving up.
05:11
I I, but what about like, I feel like maybe other people have
05:15
different layers of self esteem but what about the people
05:16
that want to see themselves represent it, right?
05:18
Like, you know, I guess, I don't know, I guess sometimes maybe
05:22
people wanna see themselves on screen and that's what I feel
05:24
like.
05:24
That's why there's a bunch of different companies and a bunch
05:27
of different brands and everyone can do their own thing, but
05:29
that was their thing.
05:30
And you're gonna find, I think yourself in a brand.
05:33
There's so many incredible brands, so many platforms.
05:36
A lot of people don't mess with the Toy Secret in general.
05:38
Like do you have a Toy Secret underwear?
05:40
Do you pay?
05:40
I do honestly the the panties on our strong for my ass.
05:44
I'm not, there are no panties.
05:46
I for that we have to go to outer space to find the right there
05:53
There aren't any panties.
05:54
I there aren't any panties for my ass.
05:56
Uh There aren't OK.
05:58
So, so Victoria's Secret, we're gonna, we're gonna leave
06:00
that there.
06:01
Georgia Smith.
06:02
You ladies know who Georgia Smith is?
06:04
II, I don't know because that'll be on the west coast.
06:05
She's one of the most incredible talented.
06:07
I love her.
06:08
I feel like I feel like I look like her.
06:10
You, you do, I do, I love her, I love her music and I I do go on her
06:15
page.
06:16
You know you have celebrities that you like go on their page
06:18
and like I wanna say Slacker Jack, I'm like she's doing it.
06:20
I could do it too.
06:21
So I'm like I go on her page a lot to for references for fashion
06:24
references because you know I can't dress.
06:26
I'm doing the best I can.
06:26
I'm doing the best on her best but I go on pages like her and other
06:31
celebrities that I feel like I look or like to have my body shape
06:34
Um, and recently I've noticed that, you know, she did a performance
06:37
and she's gained a, like, she's gained a lot of weight, like
06:40
compared to, like her size.
06:41
When she first came out that the conversation online, people
06:44
are being real.
06:44
They're being, they're like, oh, we like you like this.
06:47
It's, it's kind of like, I mean, when you saw that, what was
06:50
your first?
06:50
Like when I saw her, I was like, I know how hard it is to be an artist
06:55
and get on stage regardless of how you feel.
06:57
Like I thought I commended her for it because I know that sometimes
07:00
I don't feel like I look good and I'm still showing up.
07:03
So I was like, if she could do that I could do that.
07:04
I mean, I think she looks beautiful in, in every shape and size
07:07
The first thought was like, oh, she's falling in love and having
07:10
an incredible time like that.
07:12
Like, you know, but you never know what somebody's or maybe
07:14
like it's happy way or maybe it could be, it could be a health
07:17
issue.
07:18
I don't know if she's happy are mean.
07:20
I don't know if you ever, they're mean, I shit, it's like the
07:22
same thing like with Britney, like I think with Britney and
07:25
like, people like Britney and Georgia, they project like
07:27
this is their dream girl.
07:28
So, like, if you change, I'm gonna be mad at you.
07:30
It's almost like they don't think they're human and like,
07:33
they actually go through, I mean, how could you do that?
07:36
You're like, what do you mean?
07:36
How can I eat?
07:37
I was hungry.
07:38
Yeah, I personally, I fluctuate like crazy.
07:40
So I know what it's like to show up to set one day and feeling
07:42
amazing and then the next day feeling like what is happening
07:46
right now and imagine that but on such a massive scale and because
07:49
social media it's so spineless, you can go on there behind
07:52
a fake screen, you could say whatever you want.
07:54
It's not like saying it to their, to their face.
07:56
I guarantee you like none of these people would say any of this
07:58
stuff to anybody's face like that.
07:59
It's all behind the screen because they think they're just
08:01
projecting.
08:02
I don't know.
08:02
Yeah.
08:02
What compels people to be like?
08:03
Oh, you got to real jealousy.
08:06
Oh sorry.
08:08
But yeah, anyways uh I thought that was a productive conversation
08:11
So it's time for glam hot take.
08:13
Are you ladies ready?
08:15
Is that ok?
08:16
There's a glam hot take that we need to talk about celebrities
08:19
who use Ozempic a prescription drug for type two diabetes
08:23
as a weight loss drug.
08:24
How do we feel about it?
08:27
Like what part about it?
08:28
Because there's obviously the celebrities that use it and
08:30
then there's the celebrity that lie about using it.
08:32
And then, I mean, I know some people that have used it, like
08:36
personally that some people that I know and like friends
08:39
friends of friends, you know, like, because I heard, I didn't
08:42
know it was a real thing.
08:43
Like I knew it was like a drug.
08:45
I know it's for diabetes and stuff like that.
08:47
But I have friends of friends that have used it and have lost
08:49
a lot of weight.
08:50
I personally think that it's just not healthy and I think that
08:53
it has probably some like other effects that are gonna screw
08:56
you up eventually.
08:57
Like, it's anything that's too good to be true is too good to
09:00
be true.
09:00
And I will say so like 100% no matter what, you know what I mean
09:04
I heard that the side effects are, you could lose in like a significant
09:06
amount of weight.
09:08
Skin starts sagging because, yeah, like, it just, you can
09:11
kinda, what happens is like, what I heard is that the food doesn't
09:15
digest.
09:16
So it, like, they start acquiring like bad breath because
09:19
it like, stays there like it makes you not hungry, it makes
09:22
you have no appetite.
09:23
But then the food that you do eat, it doesn't digest as fast
09:26
So like you get like a bad breath and like this bad because it's
09:30
not like digesting and it's just sitting there.
09:32
Yeah.
09:32
Yeah.
09:32
So there's like celebrities that have taken it.
09:34
And I think, like, the big controversy around this is that
09:37
this is a drug that, you know, women in Hollywood are using
09:40
and they're pro, they're almost like, saying, yeah, I'm losing
09:42
the weight naturally.
09:43
Or through exercise and diet girls.
09:45
I mean, women, we're gonna see that we're gonna get down on
09:47
ourselves.
09:47
Like, why can't I lose that type of weight that quickly or like
09:49
why don't I look like that?
09:51
The thing is, is if you're not being transparent, that's what
09:53
messes me up.
09:54
If you're gonna like, you know, do all these things.
09:56
People always talk about.
09:56
Why do you Photoshop?
09:57
Why do you edit your photos?
09:58
You know, it doesn't even look like you.
10:00
Another part of that I think is also why don't you disclose
10:02
that?
10:03
I feel like, but also using a drug that people that have diabetes
10:06
really need, right?
10:07
That is the part that's a little concerning for me.
10:10
I know I'm not Alaria.
10:11
When I went to my doctor, I tried to like low key ask for it but
10:13
he's like you need to go to the gym and I mean, like what?
10:16
Yeah I'm saying like what fads?
10:18
Like I, I have you guys actually tried, I tried to do the master
10:21
cleanse.
10:21
Like for I, I just couldn't get, it was, it was like a two week
10:24
master cleanse where you drink like Cayenne Pep Yeah, I know
10:26
And then I had a, I did a parasite cleanse and I became the devil
10:29
in disguise because it takes away all the sugar and everything
10:31
And you just, you realize how addicted you are to sugar.
10:33
I'll, I'll give you the concoction.
10:35
But basically you drink it three times a day for like a week
10:38
and I did it and I lost my boyfriend.
10:41
I lost everyone and I lost everything because I became that
10:44
like, did you lose weight?
10:45
But I lost weight.
10:46
But at the same time, I, they took away all like the sugar, all
10:50
the parasites, all the things that are living in my gut, but
10:53
it took away my soul too.
10:54
And I became the worst person on the planet.
10:57
But I think I need to get no, because our bodies have parasites
11:00
A lot of us have parasites in our bodies that we don't even know
11:02
about.
11:03
And we're so addicted to sugar and things like that, that when
11:05
we get it taken away from us, our body needs it.
11:07
So we become grumpy and like me.
11:09
But I think there's a difference but it's good if you want to
11:11
have a full on reset, cleanse, I think you're talking about
11:14
a reset.
11:15
But it's like you have to take a death in a kind of thing situation
11:19
that I wasn't aware of.
11:19
But I think the difference between that and like actually
11:22
doing a fa like a fad for like just to speed up some type of process
11:26
Like a Zump is like in like a few weeks, you're gonna be skinny
11:28
again.
11:29
I don't know, I think I like the transparency of you taking
11:31
it, say the transparency, I mean, but then again, like who's
11:34
really transparent about absolutely everything?
11:36
I just feel like people are not transparent like that.
11:38
I wish they were.
11:39
No, I totally agree.
11:40
And honestly, I feel like we're gonna get more transparent
11:42
We have my homegirl Maria that coming through.
11:45
She is absolutely incredible.
11:46
And it's with this new segment that we have Calla Vas no more
11:50
We're not gonna be holding back at all and make sure you guys
11:53
comment below.
11:54
We wanna hear what you guys have to say and we're gonna be responding
11:56
to you guys as well.
11:57
We'll be right back.
11:58
OK?
11:58
I don't like how this looks on camera all great.
12:00
I'm gonna post it because what is that gonna do?
12:01
It's gonna ex out the fear y'all follow me.
12:03
I don't follow you.
12:05
You know what I'm saying?
12:06
Like sound OK.
12:07
We're back.
12:09
We're at the girl.
12:10
Let me tell you table, we talked about some weight loss trends
12:13
I really wanna know truly.
12:15
And honestly, how do you feel about your body today?
12:18
Oh My gosh today.
12:19
Like right now, I mean, I literally when I clap just now I was
12:22
like, I hope that my arm fat isn't shit.
12:24
Like I, I genuinely feel that way.
12:26
Like, it's not like, don't feel, I don't feel bad for anything
12:29
This is how I feel about myself and like, something like I studied
12:31
that on my stomach.
12:32
I don't feel like how I could be or how I want to be like, I know
12:36
where I could be and I'm not there.
12:38
I, I don't hate my body, but I'm, I feel insecure, like I literally
12:42
asked one of the producers, like, can you see if like, it's
12:45
sticking out here just in case?
12:46
You know what I mean?
12:47
It's so crazy how I'm always aware of it no matter if I, even
12:51
when I'm the skinniest, I'm in like, I feel weird, you know
12:54
and then when I'm not, you know, it's just kind of, there's
12:56
so much emphasis on so like different body parts on a woman
13:00
It's like, how, what size are her lips?
13:02
What sizes are her boobs, her butt, her waist, her hair, her
13:06
eyebrows, like, think of all the little things that society
13:09
tells us we need to change or we need to fine tune or this is what
13:12
the beauty standard is and we're all just trying to like, I
13:15
don't know, chase it and, you know, piece it together.
13:17
It can be really, really hard at this moment right now.
13:20
I feel like not my best.
13:22
I haven't been feeling my best for months now.
13:24
I almost feel like in a slump right now and it's hard.
13:27
Like it's hard to show up even on camera right now and be like
13:29
yeah, I feel good and when you're not feeling that way, I think
13:32
similarly to, you know, where you can be and when you're not
13:34
there you're just, like, especially because you're an athlete
13:36
I'm an athlete, you know what it's like to, like, work and
13:39
not even have to think about it.
13:40
And now that you're not doing a sport every day, you have to
13:43
you have to really be committed to feeling good and looking
13:46
good.
13:46
You know what I mean?
13:47
Yeah, I can't, I just feel very, very heavy, like my whole,
13:50
I mean, sometimes I'm grateful because my ass is so fat.
13:53
I know that.
13:53
I said that it's true though.
13:56
I mean, no, I will say having a fat ass is nice but the rest of
14:01
it, like the f like sometimes when I sit down, I'm like, I look
14:04
like, I just look like a wrestler sometimes.
14:06
I don't know.
14:07
Is that I feel like a, a wrestler right now.
14:09
Yeah.
14:09
I don't know.
14:09
I just feel really strong and like I'm wearing the, so you see
14:12
me now, like, you see me with a faha and my fast fashions with
14:15
the polyester.
14:16
So it's sucking it in.
14:17
But I, I just don't, I don't be feeling good all the time and
14:20
that's why like, I need to, I don't know, getting back in that
14:23
grind is so unbelievably important.
14:24
I'm so excited because we're bringing on another incredible
14:27
guest who is going to comment on all these things.
14:30
She's incredibly successful.
14:31
Let's bring out Mariale Maria G that you are Colombian actress
14:41
content, creator, businesswoman, and philanthropist
14:44
Her content consists of cooking.
14:46
There's a lot of lifestyle in there.
14:47
She's most known for your unique recipes.
14:50
I love watching them all from Korea to India, to Colombian
14:52
to Mexican.
14:53
You do it all you do.
14:54
muk bangs.
14:55
You and your sister also launched something called Hermanas
14:57
at the table.
14:58
I've gone to so many of those events which is empowering Latina
15:01
women out here doing it, which is not an easy thing to do.
15:04
Thank you for being here with you girl.
15:08
You have to do it one time.
15:09
We got to be reminded of who you are.
15:11
Oh my God.
15:11
Thank you guys for having me, which by the way, you just got
15:14
off a flight and you're here.
15:16
You're hustling.
15:17
We're working honey.
15:19
We're closing out Q four.
15:20
We got to get to me.
15:25
I was gonna say so we were just talking about how we feel about
15:27
our bodies right now.
15:28
How do you honestly feel about where you are today?
15:31
Like OK, your body type now, of course, being super candid
15:35
and like super honest with you, like I was just having this
15:37
conversation about, about it with my boyfriend where it's
15:39
like I share so much of like my confidence and all those things
15:42
and while that is a really big part of me, like I am still a woman
15:45
who gets a large following of people telling her, you know
15:48
about myself physically.
15:49
So it's like right now I'm in a place where I am truly embracing
15:52
the changes that are going on in my body as well and just making
15:55
sure I have a healthy lifestyle.
15:56
But like instead of taking it from the approach of like, oh
15:59
I look so bad or like, oh, this is being so mean to myself.
16:02
I'm actually just like, great.
16:03
I'm gonna eat cleaner.
16:04
I'm gonna work out and I'm gonna do what's best for me.
16:06
But taking it more on the approach of like loving myself along
16:09
the way versus being so mean to myself.
16:11
We're so we're so mean and like, I'm just, I'm working on it
16:15
but like everything, of course, I see myself on camera and
16:17
I'm like, I could fix this, I could fix this.
16:19
But like, I think I'm really at a point where I'm like, you know
16:21
I was just in a bikini last week in, in Mexico when I had I had
16:27
moments where I was like, and then I was like, no, you know what
16:29
like this is sexy.
16:30
My body is sexy.
16:31
My, even if I really didn't feel it at first and then I ended
16:33
up being like, great.
16:34
I feel great.
16:34
Let's go and you're also dealing, I mean, you have so many followers
16:37
I believe like 2.1 million on Instagram, 1.3 on Instagram
16:41
1.32 point no.
16:43
So you have millions of eyeballs on you, which is millions
16:47
of also opinions and you know what something that I really
16:49
appreciate about your content.
16:50
You did a video talking about how somebody had, which by the
16:53
way, this is my biggest insecurity and I've talked about on
16:55
the show is like, you know, either your body or, or commenting
16:58
on certain things and you've literally responded and posted
17:01
it.
17:01
This is what it is.
17:02
I love who I am.
17:03
You know, I like, walk me through that type of confidence because
17:07
that's like a new, I mean, when you're dealing with millions
17:09
and millions of people, you're like, I'm gonna take this straight
17:12
on and post about it.
17:13
Like that is an insane amount of comment that's hard to do.
17:16
Yeah, I mean, honestly, like it has really come from me like
17:19
and I still have my moments like I wanna be very clear that
17:21
I still have my moments where I'm like, uh because I think we're
17:24
all human beings, but it's like, I just choose to be like, I'm
17:26
not gonna look at the comments like I'm not gonna sit here and
17:29
like go crazy over comments, but I am gonna like acknowledge
17:32
the parts of me that are this and like, what if we own them?
17:34
Then what then like, what are you gonna tell me about myself
17:36
that's gonna hurt me.
17:37
You know what I'm saying?
17:39
Like, like go to Z OK, Los Tango.
17:44
We're taking that power.
17:45
Exactly.
17:46
As I tell my mom, my mom, yeah, I like because I want something
17:48
to look forward to in the future.
17:50
You know that yourself all look great.
17:53
I have a question.
17:54
All look beautiful.
17:56
We work, we work.
17:57
I have a question.
17:58
I have a question more for Maria and Jessica.
18:00
Some, one of my biggest insecurities, I hate getting on Instagram
18:04
and being on camera because I just tear myself up apart.
18:07
Like immediately like the moment I put a video, I'm like, I
18:09
just can't be a creator.
18:10
Like I don't put any of my stand up clips up.
18:12
I don't, how do you, how do you like find the co this is redundant
18:16
Like how do you find the confidence to show up online every
18:18
day and say like, I'm gonna po like, I think there's a lot of
18:21
people out there that wanna be creators.
18:23
I just don't, I want an initial, you're like, yeah, like I do
18:26
it, I'm gonna post it.
18:27
I can't do it.
18:28
I be trying like, oh I'm gonna be a creator to them.
18:30
I'm like, you know what I gave up, it's the same thing with the
18:31
gym.
18:31
Like both of those things have been in limbo for me.
18:34
Um Well, OK, so I think like, for me personally, I take note
18:40
of the things that make me extremely uncomfortable.
18:42
Like I literally write them down and I'm like, what is making
18:44
me so uncomfortable and what is holding me back?
18:46
And then after I write it down, I literally do it because it's
18:49
like, I literally write it out.
18:49
So I'll be like, OK, I don't like how this looks on camera all
18:52
great.
18:52
I'm gonna post it because what is that gonna do?
18:53
It's gonna ex out the fear.
18:55
But if I just keep on sitting on it and keep on sitting on the
18:56
fear, I'm never gonna do anything about it.
18:58
So I literally just like, will be really uncomfortable or
19:02
afraid of something and like, write it down and then do it because
19:06
I'm like, and like, and like, I just won't think twice about
19:08
it.
19:08
Like, I'll just be like, I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna post this
19:11
and it's done like it's out in the universe now.
19:13
It's no longer my business, what people think about it.
19:15
I did it because it fulfilled me.
19:16
So I really, really focus on just like, why am I putting this
19:18
out?
19:18
Like, what is the deeper meaning behind it?
19:20
It fulfills me.
19:21
It's not y'all follow me.
19:22
I don't follow you.
19:24
You know what I'm saying?
19:24
Like that sound bite but like for real, you gotta remember
19:29
that.
19:29
Like, like y'all watching my Cine comment, I'm not watching
19:31
you.
19:32
You know, y'all are watching my content.
19:33
I'm not watching you.
19:33
So like, so like why am I worried about what you're thinking
19:36
Then don't watch before we get too deep into the conversation
19:39
I do wanna introduce our new segment and I wanna get even deeper
19:42
Uh So we're gonna, we're gonna ask some questions that we cannot
19:46
avoid about our body positivity.
19:48
It's all real talk in the next care, real Cait no more.
19:57
It's gonna get spicy.
19:58
We're gonna, we're gonna talk about all of that Colombia,
20:01
all of that stuff.
20:02
So I'm gonna pick the first card because you know, messy.
20:06
Um OK.
20:07
Oh We were actually a little talking about this body positivity
20:11
Influencers.
20:11
Are there influencers that are helpful or hurtful?
20:15
I think maybe women that say they maybe got a certain or achieved
20:20
a certain look one way when they actually achieved it another
20:22
way.
20:23
Yeah, I think that could be really, really hurtful to people
20:25
because if you're saying this is natural and then you're going
20:28
out and then you're saying no, I only achieve this by going
20:31
to the gym that's hurtful.
20:33
I think that's super, super hurtful.
20:35
OK.
20:36
This might be controversial.
20:37
I'm actually like, I do love, I, I've been following the Kardashians
20:40
obviously my whole life and I'm only bringing this up because
20:42
there's such a big, there's such a big topic when it comes to
20:44
beauty standards and body types.
20:45
And they have literally changed our culture, how we see the
20:48
beauty standard in L A.
20:49
They real L A not L A just all the US.
20:51
Honestly in general, I think a whole generation of women,
20:54
there was times where I think they did lie about maybe not getting
20:57
certain procedures.
20:57
And I think that that has been hard for our generation of women
21:00
to think this is natural.
21:01
Like how do they achieve this?
21:03
But you know, you go back into your house and then you realize
21:06
now later, no, they did get work done.
21:08
And that's a really, I don't know.
21:10
I feel like that's really hurtful.
21:12
I don't know, for our generation of women, I don't know.
21:15
I agree.
21:15
I think there's both, I think there's like hurtful ones and
21:18
some that I'm like, oh, this is really amazing.
21:20
I, I, I feel like sometimes I see a lot of content creators that
21:23
wanna be really helpful but then they're also harming themselves
21:26
because they wanna own it, you know?
21:28
Oh I'm this, I'm this so much but then I see like two posts later
21:31
like you guys, my mental health is so bad because I've been
21:32
putting myself so much out there.
21:34
So I think like, really be careful of what you can handle in
21:36
doses, those videos that I'll make of like show my cellulite
21:38
I can handle them in doses if I'm being real because then comes
21:41
like a wave of hate with a wave of support, but also like a wave
21:45
of hate.
21:45
You know what I'm saying?
21:45
Do you get a wave of hate with coming the video that you came
21:49
out with just showing my cellulite and just being like, hey
21:51
guys, this is my cellulite.
21:52
Like, comment on a picture of me that I posted in my bikini that
21:56
I felt, I felt so sexy.
21:58
I to my story when I saw that a weird thing, but I think cellulite
22:03
is so sexy.
22:03
I think people have some.
22:05
It's nice.
22:07
You know what I mean?
22:12
You got to become at peace with it.
22:13
I want to shout out this creator Nana Castro.
22:16
It's Nana Castro.
22:16
I've been following her since the pandemic.
22:18
I think it was really dope.
22:19
I think there was a moment on the internet where influencers
22:21
are like really put together and then there was this wave of
22:24
just like regular women that are like, I'm just gonna start
22:27
shopping on Amazon and po posting my content.
22:29
So I started following her when she was just getting started
22:32
and I just love how honest she is about like her body.
22:35
She doesn't really use a lot of filter.
22:36
She says, hey, she just al I think she has two kids and she recently
22:39
just had a baby.
22:40
So like she shares her size and everything that she buys like
22:43
on her Amazon storefront.
22:44
And it's been really nice to see someone that I'm like, she's
22:47
a regular person.
22:48
Obviously, I look up to her, but like she's a regular content
22:51
person that's a content creator.
22:53
That's being honest and I really enjoy that because it helps
22:56
me shop better and like anything I will follow her.
22:59
Like I'm one of her biggest fans.
23:00
It's inspired.
23:01
You see people that are whatever, large size, thicker size
23:05
whatever its really being confident and beautiful.
23:07
It, it's almost like when you see a woman that's confident
23:11
no matter what's going on or what size she is, it makes her
23:14
so beautiful because she loves herself.
23:15
You can tell she's shiny, she's glowing just like being confident
23:18
in accepting herself.
23:19
Everybody else accepts it.
23:20
Like you write your story.
23:22
If you're gonna be like, oh then everyone's like, oh she's
23:25
but if you're like, this is what I had and this is like, I love
23:28
you.
23:29
It's like the energy of what you get is what you get.
23:31
And I also appreciate it.
23:32
Influencers that put, hey, I'm a mid size like they put their
23:35
size because then when I'm on tiktok shopping for stuff, I
23:37
just buy everything they buy.
23:39
So shout out to those influencers that we put their sizes up
23:41
and I wanna tell you guys like as I was backstage and I was hearing
23:44
you guys all talk about like your little insecurities.
23:46
It's so crazy because as y'all were talking about them, I was
23:48
like, what?
23:49
I didn't see that about you.
23:50
I didn't see that about you or you and I know y'all are opening
23:53
up.
23:53
I say you were saying about like your, your food buy.
23:56
Yeah, I know we're talking about like you were saying something
23:59
about your belly and like tell you like, and I was like, that's
24:01
crazy because I literally whatever I'm saying, it's such
24:03
a perception of like you standing in front of the mirror and
24:05
being like tearing myself apart where it's like people that
24:08
are meeting.
24:08
I mean, I obviously know her.
24:09
I met you briefly at an event but at my first time I knew you.
24:11
I'm like, I thought y'all were freaking perfect.
24:17
That's what I say.
24:18
Thank you.
24:18
That's what I'm saying.
24:19
You know what I mean?
24:19
It's like sometimes like you gotta check yourself and be like
24:22
girl, it is not that deep.
24:23
All right guys, let's get into this next one.
24:25
When do you feel comfortable in your own skin?
24:29
I feel comfortable in my own skin.
24:31
Honestly, I've been loving myself without makeup lately
24:34
Oh yeah.
24:35
But that, that's been a journey like let me tell you, yeah,
24:38
like, I don't know, I, I got so used to seeing myself with eyelashes
24:41
in college because I used to do like the permanent eyelashes
24:43
and then when I took them off, I just felt so crazy.
24:45
But I'm really like coming to my own right now that I think that
24:48
for me is like right after so I work out and I'm like, I like that
24:52
I'm like red, not much make up on my hair is kind of curling
24:56
and then, like, I'm so, I'm just, like, I'm in my comfort zone
24:59
because, like, being an athlete and whatever, you know, just
25:01
kind of just myself.
25:03
I feel confident, I feel strong and I'm sweating and I feel
25:05
good.
25:05
Like, I think that's when I feel the most comfortable, I think
25:08
I feel the most comfortable after I got out the shower.
25:11
It's, is that intimate?
25:13
Yeah.
25:13
Like, I just, like, when I take that deep shower and I come,
25:15
I'm like, wow, if only the rest of the world could see you like
25:18
this but you're in the bathroom, you know what I'm saying?
25:20
Like that's, that's what I feel.
25:23
The prettiest.
25:23
When do you, I feel the prettiest.
25:27
Uh Yeah, like after a shower also but like just in some like
25:32
comfortable yoga pants, no make up and just like skin moisturized
25:36
And I really feel, I really feel like if I got, yeah, when we
25:40
can just take care of the rest.
25:41
But like, honestly, like I just really feel like I feel the
25:43
prettiest when I'm happy.
25:45
I like that like that.
25:45
It, you have great answers for sure.
25:49
It's for real.
25:50
Like there's never, I have been in like the most glam and stuff
25:54
and been so unhappy that it's like it didn't matter, it just
25:57
didn't matter.
25:58
So I, I really believe that for me, I feel my sexy when I'm happy
26:00
You are, you're actually so right about that also when I get
26:04
a manicure pedicure that when I get my eye life changing.
26:09
Number number three, would you consider surgery or other
26:12
medical procedures to change your appearance?
26:15
Who wants to go first?
26:16
I would, but I wanna wait until I have kids because I'm gonna
26:19
do one and done.
26:20
Like, I'm gonna, I'm gonna wrap everything up, you know what
26:22
I'm saying?
26:23
Um I feel like I think now that I moved to LA, I do have a little
26:26
bit of pressure of like, should I start like being around with
26:30
stuff?
26:30
But like I have this thing like I'll play with any part of my
26:32
body but I won't touch my face because if something happens
26:35
to my face, I'm gonna be tight.
26:37
Yeah, I don't need to be, you see, I'll be tight but I, I don't
26:40
mind like I think if I could just suck this, this part right
26:43
here where the faja is, if I could just, you know, a little bit
26:45
I would love that.
26:46
Yeah, I mean, I've, I mean, this isn't a secret.
26:49
I've gotten my, I've got a augmentation personally.
26:52
I am so happy that I did it like I feel really confident with
26:56
it.
26:57
So I'm definitely, you know, I just kind of like look down here
27:03
like you did.
27:03
I know that what I'm saying.
27:08
So like you have, we have a chef's parents and we gotta put titties
27:10
done.
27:10
No, no, Jessica.
27:14
Yeah.
27:15
I mean, I know that I did and I have gotten, um, some facial stuff
27:19
like some filler here and there.
27:21
Um, I mean, I don't know, I'm not against it.
27:23
Like, I think it's like, whatever, however you feel, if you
27:26
know what I mean?
27:26
The same way, like, I'm like, Harvard makes you happy.
27:28
I have not gotten any work done yet other than, uh, Botox, like
27:31
right here.
27:32
But I think after I have kids if I want to get a little something
27:35
whatever.
27:36
But I believe, but I believe that like, if you are talking about
27:38
body positivity, I would be very honest about it, right?
27:41
Because like, I don't want to ever look like the mom that's
27:43
like I just had twins and I look like I'm like, right?
27:48
You know what I mean?
27:49
So um I have no problem with plast surgery.
27:51
If it's gonna fulfill you to this point in my life, I have like
27:53
enjoyed the process of like having my body fluctuate weight
27:56
and figure it out and if tomorrow I wanna get something done
27:59
I'll be really open about it.
28:00
There you go.
28:01
Lights are on or off in the bedroom shirts on or off.
28:06
OK.
28:07
So we're talking about how our bodies impact our sexual lives
28:10
after the commercial break, but we wanna hear your thoughts
28:13
in the comments section below.
28:14
We wanna interact with you guys.
28:15
You wanna know how you guys are feeling?
28:17
Oh My God, I put lingerie for my man and he was just kind of like
28:22
you're acting shy.
28:23
So you're turning me off and that shit really destroyed me
28:26
You ever put on that, that nurse outfit?
28:29
But where you were acting shy, you can like come out laughing
28:31
and be like and be like I was shy.
28:33
I was but you're supposed to help me feel comfortable with
28:36
my partner.
28:37
Welcome back to girl.
28:38
Let me tell you, we're in the middle of caritas no more.
28:42
Let's get back into it.
28:44
Ok.
28:44
So we were talking about, you know, while you're with your
28:47
partner.
28:48
Are you doing it?
28:48
Lights on, lights off?
28:50
Does it impact you body image?
28:52
The whole thing Imana.
28:52
I'm gonna start with you, girl, you, I'm fine over here.
28:57
Is there any more water?
28:58
We wanna know?
28:59
I'm actually really curious, I think medium.
29:04
Oh You got the, you got the lights that, that just like, you
29:08
know, like like you wanna, you wanna see a little, you wanna
29:11
see little parts of it but not the whole thing.
29:14
No, I just, you.
29:15
What about you?
29:16
If I, I like the night put me in the night like I don't even want
29:20
dark lady of the night one.
29:22
Yeah.
29:22
Dark one time.
29:24
I was into what we say, kissing the bed with my ex and I saw his
29:28
reflection in the mirror and I was kinda turned off.
29:31
Oh Is that when you knew you should have left that you knew it
29:33
was over I don't know.
29:35
You know, sometimes, I don't know, it was just turned off.
29:37
I was like, I don't wanna see this.
29:38
You had to literally just had the lights off.
29:40
Do you?
29:41
What do you imagine?
29:43
I guess that's a real imagination.
29:44
Like Brad Pitt.
29:45
What are you doing?
29:46
I guess.
29:47
Honestly, I'm not somebody completely different.
29:50
No, that's not the question, the question.
29:53
I'm the lights off.
29:54
If we're in a serious, serious relationship and we're on our
29:56
way to marriage, I can turn on the lights but wait until marriage
29:59
to turn on the lights.
30:01
I don't know.
30:01
It's just so intimate to have somebody see you for who you are
30:05
It's true.
30:06
That's so intimate.
30:08
So I'll, I'll go like in the middle like I need to see like what's
30:11
going on for movement because I do have like my eyes going,
30:13
I have night vision.
30:16
I, I don't know.
30:17
I think right now I'm a little insecure so I wanna do lights
30:19
off.
30:20
Like don't be looking at me like that.
30:22
I'll probably go lights off too.
30:24
I don't know.
30:25
It's like a comfort thing.
30:26
I don't know.
30:27
Fully lights off.
30:28
I'm scared of the dark so maybe dimmed all of us.
30:33
I, I'm actually, I actually am scared of the dark.
30:36
I've never slept.
30:36
I don't sleep in the dark.
30:37
I sleep with my light dimmed.
30:39
I prefer I can see their face.
30:40
I it's just, it's just the perfect amount of light.
30:44
It's not like fluorescent lighting.
30:45
I feel like it's just too much, you know, I want all the light
30:50
You want my baby?
30:57
So you have like the ring light going is just like I feel like
31:09
the walk away after you.
31:11
I mean, I whatever the walk away after you finish is just too
31:13
embarrassing for me.
31:14
What's embarrassing about?
31:15
I don't know, I just don't look at me.
31:17
It's just like, oh that ass really walk away.
31:20
OK, so what kind of walk are you doing?
31:24
Are you doing a dramatic walk?
31:27
Like slow motion camera that I don't bring?
31:31
You're on camera, Ivana, we're on camera.
31:34
Don't, please don't trigger us again.
31:37
I Ivan has a special walk.
31:39
She had multiple walks we'll get into that has a partner ever
31:43
made you actually feel more like secure while you were being
31:46
insecure in the middle of like kissing in the bed, intimacy
31:49
kissing or just like in general.
31:52
I mean, I think what would it take for you to be like, I mean,
31:56
you seem pretty confident but what was like, you know, you
31:59
have your man like what does he do that?
32:01
I mean, I think just like literally tell me like how sexy I am
32:04
I love it.
32:05
Like tell me everything.
32:06
Tell me what you think of sex about one of your right from the
32:09
beginning.
32:10
When did you know you guys tell me everything?
32:15
OK, I was gonna say, do you do that?
32:16
Do you guys do that with your partners, like you say, do you
32:19
remember like when we went, what did you think?
32:21
Like, I wait while you were in bed?
32:22
No, no, no.
32:23
Like we met when we met, when we met, I was like, what was the
32:26
first that attracted you to me?
32:27
I love asking that question.
32:29
Me and my men are about to be together for two years and I'm still
32:31
like, so when did you know you loved me?
32:33
I I love asking those questions.
32:35
I actually once I have an embarrassing, I have one that is great
32:39
and one that is bad.
32:39
So one time I did put lingerie on for speaking of Victoria's
32:42
Secret, you know, back in the day when I was in college, you
32:45
know, I would get my lingerie from there.
32:46
Not anymore, but I mean, unless I wanna be a sponsor, but I put
32:50
lingerie for my man and he was just kind of like you're acting
32:53
shy.
32:54
So you're turning me off and that shit really destroyed me
32:56
You ever put on that, that nurse outfit, not the nurse.
33:01
It was and it didn't, it didn't really, no, it was like a pink
33:03
nurse thing.
33:04
It didn't really fit anyways.
33:06
It was like you're acting shy, you can come out and be like,
33:11
oh my God, what am I was shy?
33:14
I was, but you're supposed to help me feel comfortable.
33:16
That was, that was, that was he was he was mean, I think for me
33:20
it's like beautiful when they compliment you like in random
33:22
times, like when you just say brushing your teeth and you,
33:25
they're just like, oh, you look so beautiful, you know, like
33:27
little comments like, like I like your feet when you're just
33:29
like, what, like just little feet for those of us, you know
33:34
th those of you just joining the Ivana lost feet.
33:36
She has an appreciation for mine.
33:37
I do too.
33:38
I do too.
33:39
I think toes are cute.
33:40
I do too.
33:40
I do too.
33:41
All right guys, we have survived Callas no more.
33:43
Thank you guys for being part of that.
33:45
Uh Maria, what's up with you?
33:47
What's coming up with you in the future?
33:50
What can you tell us and what can people look forward to?
33:53
We have, we have so much coming up.
33:54
I'm actually, I'm so excited.
33:56
Well, right now I'm really working on getting a show off the
33:59
ground where I try food from different parts of the world with
34:01
like your favorite celebrities and you know, they take me
34:04
back.
34:05
So like I'd love to have like bad bunny.
34:06
Actually, I'm manifesting it right now.
34:07
I'm gonna have bad bunny and we're gonna be trying like Puerto
34:10
Rican food or if I'm with Cardi, she takes me to New York and
34:13
we try Dominican.
34:14
You know what I mean?
34:14
Like we try foods, we get to know each other.
34:16
So I'm really excited.
34:17
We're working really, really hard on that to find like the
34:19
right place for it, you know, like somewhere where you could
34:21
just trying to be like a lot of food places, a lot of food, things
34:24
have felt a little bit more like, so much more serious and like
34:27
I wanna bring the fun to food with my content and that.
34:30
So I'm really, really excited about that.
34:32
Um Aside from that, just like creating a lot um going back into
34:37
selling us like a TV show, my sister and I are working on to honor
34:39
my brother and keep on elevating Hermanas at the table.
34:42
Like, I'm sorry, I missed the, the, the Hermanas at the table
34:45
event, but I wanna know, are you gonna be doing more of those
34:47
How does that happen?
34:48
Yes.
34:48
No, they do.
34:49
So for those of you who maybe don't know, Herman is on the table
34:51
is a community my sister and I created here in L A for Latinas
34:54
and Entertainment tech and entrepreneurs.
34:56
So, you know, we gather some really dope women all the time
35:00
like from a variety of places, you know, just all women that
35:03
we admire, we hand select them.
35:04
So, um you know, I wanna set up like a different way for women
35:07
to just kind of really communicate, like just really check
35:09
in as the year's closing up.
35:10
You know, I feel like we all get a little, there's a lot of emotions
35:13
in December, you know, like, did I do enough?
35:15
Did I not just kind of remind us all that we're all girl, we're
35:17
all doing our best, all going through it.
35:20
That's one what about like emotionally and just for you personally
35:25
as anything you're going through working on anything specifically
35:28
honestly, just making sure I feel like I'm trying to remember
35:31
as all the things that I've dreamed of are happening to stay
35:35
present in the happiness and balance of it.
35:38
I feel like that's something that we ask for all of the big things
35:41
all the time and when they come, we're like, ok, next thing
35:43
next thing and I'm sitting in, you know, so it's like, I think
35:47
I think like December, I definitely wanna just like, I feel
35:55
like I've done enough.
35:55
Do y'all ever struggle with that?
35:56
Like you get all these things and then you're like, ok, well
35:59
I still have I done enough and it's like, it's like a hamster
36:02
and a wheel.
36:02
You know what I mean?
36:03
That's another thing as a content creator.
36:04
I'm like, what do I post today?
36:06
Is it like my chickens today?
36:07
Like, am I gonna do an arm?
36:08
Like what am I gonna do?
36:11
I Yeah.
36:11
No, I definitely get burned out and I think I I'm just trying
36:14
to get better about like for me, structure really works so
36:16
like content like, you know, being more structured about
36:19
myself, I feel like I just taking away a lot of my anxiety like
36:22
adding to my team, like just adding to your team taking off
36:25
because I'd be trying to do everything.
36:27
I'm like, oh I can do everything I can do everything and then
36:29
I'm like, I'm crying at like 3 a.m. like I can't do it.
36:32

So this is a lemon ginger kombucha, which is good for your body
36:55
and your soul and your spirit because it's a fermented mushroom
36:59
and it's a mushroom.
36:59
It's a mushroom but it's fermented and it's like it grows in
37:03
a jar for a long time and all the goodness comes out of it and
37:05
it's good for your gut.
37:06
It's like a probiotic.
37:08
It's like a natural medicine.
37:09
It makes you feel there's a little bit of vodka in it.
37:12
I love that.
37:13
What are we going to tell you?
37:14
Loving our bodies?
37:16
Period.
37:16

38:15
the lights in the bed.
38:17

38:36

38:39
So I think it's great.
38:40
I feel like I admire and it kind of inspires me.
38:43

38:52

38:58
I mean, are we all?
38:59
Yes, I agree on them.
39:01
No, I, I think we all know why?
39:09
OK.
39:10
MP for sure.
39:11
But honestly, I, I just enjoy their transparency like you
39:13
have, I know that this might not seem like a big thing for people
39:16
We have so many followers and like just being able to hang out
39:19
with them.
39:19
Like, you know, she's so cool.
39:20
She's so honest.
39:21
Like I look up to women like you because I'm like, I can't get
39:24
the internet.
39:24
I don't understand it.
39:25
I could barely post a tweet.
39:27
You just delete everything.
39:29
So I think it was really dope that you were here.
39:31
You were open with everything and I enjoyed it.
39:33
But you also do stand up comedy which is like my biggest fear
39:35
on earth.
39:36
It's different in person.
39:38
I could do it in person.
39:39
I just can't take pictures.
39:40
I don't know how to do that shit.
39:40
Oh my God.
39:42
All right.
39:42
Last but not least who has the bomb?

A nice little bra.

I guess.
40:52
How do you pick the confidence to be?
40:54
Like, I'm, I'm gonna wear this.
40:55
I mean, I love it.
40:56
So I'm like, do you just go in the store and give yourself permission
40:58
Like I'm just gonna go in the men's section and are you not allowed
41:01
to live?
41:01
I don't know.
41:02
I guess I'm just, that's why I'm just shy.
41:04
I'm just, oh, we're welcoming Lex Orozco Cabral who is bringing
41:10
out a rack of clothes to share tips on how you could dress and
41:14
feel good in your body.
41:15
I'm so excited to have you here, Lex Gracia Port and her.
41:18
Thank you so much.
41:19
I wanna read your bio.
41:20
So, so people know who you are.
41:21
Lex Orozco Cabral is a double Leo.
41:23
You already know my research born and raised in San Francisco
41:26
He is an Ayat 705 union costume designer, image consultant
41:31
and stylist as well as a working actor and model.
41:33
Three words to describe Lex Latino, luxurious and unapologetic
41:38
I love that.
41:39
So like we were just, we were talking and today's episode,
41:42
today's theme, we talk a lot about body positivity.
41:44
And before we get started, I wanna talk about what you're wearing
41:47
Like I saw you in the green woman like this is, this is fashion
41:49
I wish I could put something like this together.
41:52
So for me, it's just about expressing my Mexican culture.
41:54
Um but with like a fashion flair, um I like to be really modern
41:59
and still cultura involved.
42:02
You know, I won't name the designers I'm wearing because they're
42:04
not paying.
42:05
But this is vintage.
42:06
Um You know, uh my vintage boas is always a Tejana and yeah,
42:12
I, I give Mexican fashion excellence.
42:14
So that's what I try to serve.
42:16
I love that.
42:17
So something that I've been exploring on this show is I actually
42:20
feel really uncomfortable with my wardrobe sometimes because
42:22
I don't know how to, I just truly don't know how to dress for
42:24
my body.
42:25
I've gained, I've gained weight but I'm not like ashamed of
42:27
it.
42:27
It's, you know, I got it like I've been moving back and forth
42:30
between both cos.
42:30
So I've been eating a lot at the airport to.
42:32
So sometimes I just sometimes like today, like today I feel
42:35
really good because I do really well on a one piece because
42:37
I don't have to think about the parts.
42:39
But other days, like, I just don't know, I don't know how to
42:41
wear color.
42:42
I'm always wearing black.
42:43
I'm from New York.
42:44
So like it's a coat, black and shoes.
42:46
That's like my style.
42:47
So today I guess I want your help to learn how to dress.
42:51
Like, how can someone dress better for their size?
42:53
Like, what do you, what's the starting point?
42:54
I think at first it's important to not restrict yourself.
42:58
Like all sizes are beautiful.
43:00
There are garments for all sizes.
43:02
I don't like using the word snatched because snatch to me is
43:06
like suppressed.
43:07
I want, I don't want you to suppress.
43:09
I want you to express I'm, that's what I'm saying.
43:12
You look a little snatch and I want you to feel more cozy, more
43:15
comfortable.
43:16
I think it's also important to dress for your body.
43:19
And I know we like as women, you guys like to buy tight things
43:22
and form fitting things.
43:23
That's not always the move ladies because then when you sit
43:26
down, you start getting little folds in areas that you don't
43:30
like.
43:31
So I think it's important to like, you know, buy for your body
43:34
type.
43:35
Don't buy something that you think.
43:36
Oh I'm gonna fit in this.
43:37
I'm gonna work out to fit in this.
43:39
I know that I always be lying to myself, you know, lying to you
43:43
I'm gonna fit, I'm fit into this.
43:45
No, you're not because that's, and that's something I've
43:47
been kind of like stepping out the house with like comfort
43:50
is more important than thinking like I've been just trying
43:52
to be more comfortable.
43:53
So I see that we have a rack of clothing here.
43:56
Can you walk me through?
43:57
Like why you picked these pieces?
43:59
Like what?
43:59
Like I guess I don't you express your Tejano culture a lot but
44:03
like why these pieces like how do you pick a piece like this
44:05
So for example, I just like always mixing and matching fashion
44:09
with, with a classic Mexican style.
44:12
So like for me in fashion right now, a crop coat is major right
44:15
now, the Mexicans then have the crop coat, honey, get into
44:18
the crop coat.
44:19
You know what I'm saying?
44:20
So I also like showcasing um underground Mexican talent.
44:26
So this is a fantastic graffiti artist named Chito from the
44:30
Los Angeles area.
44:31
He collabed with this high fashion brand that will remain
44:33
nameless until you pay me.
44:35
I love, I'm gonna just start doing that for all my shows.
44:36
Exactly.
44:37
And you know what I'm saying?
44:38
This reminds me of my theo how how can I wear?
44:41
So I see a lot of like women do like a boyfriend that I was getting
44:44
at.
44:45
So for women it's, we're back to the boyfriend, jean boyfriend
44:48
t boyfriend blazer.
44:49
This could be you on an evening with a thigh high done.
44:53
You know what I'm saying?
44:53
A nice little bra.
44:54
I guess.
44:54
How do you pick the confidence to be like, I'm, I'm gonna wear
44:57
this.
44:57
I mean I love it.
44:58
So I'm like, do you just go in the store and give yourself permission
45:00
Like, I'm just gonna go in the men's section and are you not
45:03
allowed to live?
45:03
I don't know.
45:04
I guess I'm just, that's what I'm just shy.
45:05
I'm just, I haven't been taught, like, I guess, expression
45:09
First of all, you're working this Frankie BJ lo and Jenny from
45:16
the block who's now on the hills.
45:17
Um, But you know what I'm saying?
45:19
It's accentuating, it's working.
45:21
I love that.
45:21
You said it's a one stop.
45:23
I don't have to worry about the bottom.
45:24
I don't have to worry about the top.
45:25
You just put it on and it's, it's, it's like a shake and go, you
45:29
shake and go.
45:29
I'm not a thinker that not every woman is.
45:32
I wanna say fashion.
45:33
I feel like as I'm getting into my artistry, I feel like everyone's
45:35
art.
45:36
Like fashion be a fashionista is a art.
45:38
So I guess I don't have the skill set to put that together.
45:40
That's not true.
45:42
That's not true.
45:42
I think what's happening is you're comparing yourself to
45:45
photos.
45:45
You're comparing yourself to images.
45:47
You're on Pinterest I think.
45:49
Don't do that.
45:50
Ladies limit your screen time.
45:52
Don't be on Instagram looking at these images.
45:55
Those women aren't real.
45:56
They have stylists, they have chefs, they have personal trainers
45:59
You're just a real woman.
46:01
You don't have time to shop all the time.
46:03
You know what I'm saying you, you're gonna put together a look
46:06
let it work for you.
46:08
So it seems like a lot of your pieces are like, I love this.
46:11
It's like the top men and women.
46:14
If you're not feeling sexy, you give an illusion.
46:16
What I'm saying?
46:17
If I have a blow today, if you have a blow today, I have abs today
46:20
Now, that's so funny.
46:23
And then for me, you know, your mother always gave you that
46:25
little carti que to protect you in your car.
46:28
So instead of having your, you know, your blessed little carta
46:31
your car, you're blessed, walking around hand, got your
46:35
back.
46:35
I really love this.
46:36
I want to incorporate the Virgin Mary into my family.
46:39
Like imagine this with a big ass virgin Mary and always ladies
46:42
customize things.
46:43
I think this cut down as a crop on her.
46:46
Don't be afraid to take a pair of scissors, Edward scissor
46:49
hands everything.
46:49
That's the other thing I like sometimes I'll be on vacation
46:52
with my friends and they, well, when I used to have friends
46:54
over anyways long story, but they'll just be making like five
46:57
outfits out of one shirt.
46:58
Like how do you have the mind to do that?
47:00
Those are the crafty girls.
47:02
When you don't have money.
47:03
Like me growing up Mexican, we didn't have money.
47:06
We had to get crafty girl.
47:07
So like when you see you could take no from Pinterest, you see
47:10
that.
47:10
Look, you could recreate it.
47:12
Get the look for less, you know, get your little rubber bands
47:15
and, and snatch it in the bag.
47:16
Make it look, make it fit you shoe.
47:18
No, for ladies, if you're shorter, stay away from thigh high
47:21
boots, stay away from high boots.
47:23
That's cutting you.
47:24
You know what I'm saying?
47:24
Get a little ankle boot, you'll give elongated leg, you'll
47:27
look taller.
47:28
What are some illusions that we could play?
47:29
So for example, you know, sometimes I wanna look thinner.
47:31
Like how can I look thinner in a, in a outfit?
47:34
Always say don't buy smaller women think, oh I need to buy form
47:37
fitting.
47:37
That's going to make me look skinny.
47:38
I disagree.
47:39
When you sit down, you're going to get them little unsightly
47:42
little roll.
47:42
You know, your f is contrasted.
47:45
You know what I'm saying?
47:46
Let her breathe, let the f breathe.
47:48
Get a garment that works with that so that you're not looking
47:52
like a press f fashions like good F fashions.
47:56
Ladies are plums.
47:58
We love a plum.
47:59
Can I come back?
48:01
Where did it go?
48:02
I feel like it, it was happy when the plum was a style because
48:06
it was just kind of like, you know what's happening?
48:08
You on Pinterest, you thinking something left, you're thinking
48:11
something is outdated.
48:12
No, that's what those sites do is they make you think something
48:15
is outdated.
48:16
You're fabulous.
48:18
You can bring it back.
48:19
You know what I'm saying?
48:19
I'm gonna bring back, bring pep back.
48:21
That's an easy way to like, hide a little unsightly.
48:24
I also, um, noticed you were talking about, you know, the big
48:28
booty girls with a little waist, you finally get the jeans
48:32
over the booty and now that waist is, is kind of flimsy.
48:36
My favorite new tool are pin hooks.
48:39
So basically you pin one here and you pin one here and this is
48:44
great for fluctuating women because I know, you know, one
48:46
minute it's a 26.
48:48
The next minute it's a 28.
48:49
You basically pin and hook it together and you can keep moving
48:53
the pins as you go, you gain more weight, you, you remove the
48:56
pins.
48:56
That's an easy Amazon buy.
48:58
So be on Amazon not Pinterest.
49:01
I like Amazon because that's next day delivery.
49:03
Sometimes you need to outfit quickly.
49:05
Ladies.
49:06
Yeah.
49:06
So Lex, I, I really enjoy this conversation.
49:08
