Frequently Asked Questions
Before launching The Skinny Confidential, I graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in TV Broadcasting. While attending college I taught Pure Barre, Proformer Pilates, & attained my nutrition certification through ISSA. Basically, I adore everything wellness.
Over the last couple years The Skinny Confidential has evolved from a fitness blog in to a full on lifestyle. I always say it’s kind of similar to an onion- there’s tons of layers. Ultimately it’s a lifestyle balancing health, wellness, relationships, fashion, home decor, beauty, travel, & everything in between.
Think: KALE IN ONE HAND, CHAMPAGNE IN THE OTHER.
My goal is to use the blog as a platform to connect with women from around the world & showcase MAJOR REALNESS.
Let’s just say I have absolutely no censor. I really love to tell it how it is, ya know? Topics like camel toes, boob jobs, Kegals, surgery, birth control, vagina steaming, organic tampons, you get it…are discussed on TSC. So you definitely won’t just find macaroons & peonies on my blog.
WHY? Because I feel like they’re real issues that women want to discuss.
Overall I’m a serial entrepreneur who loves getting creative with blogging, photography, & home decor. Oh, & I very much enjoy champagne, reading, & spooning my chihuahuas. See ya on the blog.

Blogging was on my mind 5 years ago. I attending SDSU & feeling uninspired. The healthy options were also slim pickings & there were 20k girls on the campus. I noticed a niche & went with it. I used tips & tricks I picked up over the years to launch TSC. The goal was simple, easy, quick recipes, fitness tips, & beauty tricks. My entrepreneurial journey can be found here.
I just launched The Skinny Confidential Bombshell Body Guide. It has my full fitness routine, secrets, & recipes in one full eBook.

Whenever I collaborate with brands I always make sure that they’re the right fit for The Skinny Confidential. Over the years I’ve worked closely with Nordstrom, Target, Elizabeth Arden, & Skinnygirl which all fit with my aesthetic.
That being said I turn down 90% percent of collaborations if they’re not right for The Skinny Confidential. I also do not accept free product unless it’s something I would wear or use. You will only find things I absolutely love of my site— ultimately maintaining the integrity of my brand is extremely important to me.
