#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…

Hendrix Ivy

Happy Friday everyone! Today on the blog we’ve got our youngest feature MyXXFLY babe to date, and she is most literally a babe. Meet 364 day old Hendrix Ivy! It seems like just yesterday that we were meeting Hendrix’ mom Linda for the first time on our blog, but even back then we knew Hendrix was destined…

Unplug and Reprogram/Desenchufe y Reprograme

Welcome to Phase 3 MyXXFam! We’ve been churning out content non-stop for 40 weeks now and frankly, we’re exhausted. But since there’s no rest for the wicked, allow me to reintroduce myself. I’m Yesenia Guadalupe, thrift-store junkie, body positive babe, and your friendly neighborhood “fuck what you’ve been taught about living, we exist to do more than work and…

Anthology Dos

Well friends, another chapter of fly thrifted outfits, body positive goodness, mental health, art, and politics has come to a close! Where does the time go? If you’ve recently joined MyXXFam this is the perfect reference sheet for our last 20 posts. But if you’ve got time to kill at the cubicle, on the toilet, on the couch,…
