Fat, Fly, and Outside

Greetings and salutations fellow fly Earthlings! As the warmest (and busiest travel) season of the year bears down upon North America, you may find yourself with a bounty of opportunities to lace up your sneakers or shimmy into your bathing suit. Throughout the course of my life, whether I met these possibilities with excitement or…

The (in)Justice System

Part I Saturday May 20th, 4:22am Awake, and alert. This ungodly hour would’ve been unreasonable for a Saturday workday, but not today. After a Friday straddling Broward and Dade County, between running errands, grocery-shopping, editing at the library, and a race against time to get a blog post up while the boys met their fit-bit…

The MyXXFLY Guide to Finding Your Personal Style

We’ve been pretty busy as of late in the MyXXFLY universe. From collaborations to full-on interviews, and all of the behind-the-scenes stuff simmering on the back burner that we can’t yet reveal. Needless to say it’s all been super meta, as I’ve been asked a lot about the why’s and what’s of this whole operation. So today on MyXXFLY we’re tapping into the heartbeat of this little…

#BreakTheStigma

Welcome or welcome back MyXXFam! Today on the blog we’re coming to you live from Tropical Park in Miami, FL, with a photo-set that never would have seen the light of day if it wasn’t for the fact that May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and on this very day, I was deeply entrenched in my…

La Tierra de Lagos y Volcanes; A MyXXFLY Travel Guide

Did y’all miss me? Well if you did, bless your heart for noticing I disappeared off the face of your internet for a couple of weeks. I’ve returned a bit older, tanner, and wiser, from the land of lakes and volcanoes, aka the motherland, Nicaragua. My pilgrimage was as holy as they come as it was…

Simulation Theory on the Hollywood Broadwalk

Today’s MyXXFLY story-time begins with dreams of escaping the conveyor belt of conformity and a trip to Hollywood! No, not the star-studded, west coast, tinsel town, impersonator’s on the walk of fame, Rodeo Drive, Hollywood. The flourishing east coast, five o’clock somewhere, no fucks, Margaritaville, uber tan white people looking like brown roasted chickens, Hollywood. South Florida…

Stepmomming 101 ft. Jordan

Welcome back MyXXFam! This week on the blog we’re being joined by a special guest, the rambunctious, larger than life, often ridiculous, always entertaining, 5th grader in my life; my photographer Frank’s son, and my step-son, 11 year old chubby delight, Jordan. If you’re a long time (or diligent) reader, you may remember he’s made…

Political Horrorscope

This week on MyXXFLY we’re channeling spiritual guru Walter Mercado! The garments and accessories featured in this post are some of my absolute favorite thrift finds. (I mean, how the fuck else would I have acquired a velvet cape straight out of Ms. Patty‘s closet, and a sequined matador-worthy jacket, if not at a thrift store?) With these…

Life Begins at…

This week we’re coming to you live from the fly murals of the Bird Rd. Arts District in motherfucking pants son. Whaaaaat? I know right? Esta semana venimos en vivo desde los murales del distrito de arte en Bird Rd. y no solo eso, hasta me puse pantalones. ¿Ideay chavala, y ese milagro? ¿Yo se, verdad? If…

There goes the sun; a tale about Home

Before you move forward, you’ve gotta remember where you’ve been and so today, we’re coming to you from home. The home my parents built for themselves 31 years ago, in the complex I’ve lived in for at least 28 of my nearly 30 years. Antes de seguir adelante, tienes que recordar dónde has estado y…
