Backstage Pass with Massiel Hernandez

There are so many fabulous faces emerging in the world of plus fashion and in the plus industry in general.  One of the people you need to be in the lookout for is the fabulous Massiel Hernandez (@MassielNH).  With her resume including actress, model, and film producer, she definitely will be a name you need to remember!

Hernandez grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey and had a very humble beginning.  She is a proud Puerto Rican and a lover of life.  In fact, one of her favorite childhood memories is how much fun she had during the Christmas season.  Hernandez grew up, but she never lost sight of the fact she was destined to do great things. 

Even though she knew better days were coming for her, Hernandez still had to overcome some body issues.  She was once shy about her body and it took her a long time to be and feel comfortable within her own skin.  Having a strong role model helped her overcome her fears and break out of her shell. 

Once the body shyness left, Hernandez started to make her mark!  Although nervous, her first fashion show was a great experience.  She has been modeling for about four year, but she ironically received her big break through acting.  In fact, you may have seen her on one of your favorite shows.  She has done several indie films.  However, to date, one of her favorite roles was when she played a security guard on “Nurse Jackie”. 

Hernandez keeps a busy schedule, but she always finds time for some fun.  Who doesn’t love to shop?!  She is no different from us when it comes to that part of life.  Although she shops are various places, two of her favorite stores are Torrid and Target!  Of course, Hernandez loves to travel as well.  Her favorite destination is Berlin!  She enjoys the atmosphere and the fashion there.  In fact, if she had one superpower, it would be the ability to fly so she could get to Berlin faster!  How awesome is that?!

Massiel Hernandez is a name that is going to be around for a long time.  She has already
made great strides in the industry, but she is looking to do so much more.  Hernandez is a belly dancing, capoeira loving, strong woman.  We here at The Plus Diaries look forward to seeing her continue to be a success!

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
