Really Riley

Really Riley

Hey beloved! Happy to have you stop by my little corner of the world where I always like to keep it raw, honest, and real. I'm a spicy Latina girly-girl with a twist of tomboy that isn't afraid of much. Throughout my life that lack of fear has always landed me one of two places. Down the wrong road, or down the right road after taking every single wrong turn possible to get there. What can I say, I'm directionally challenged in the car and in life. But I consider it one of my greatest blessings to have done life backwards and upside down because opening up about my experiences connects me with you. I talk about everything from mini rants on mom life, to heartbreak in abusive relationships, and somehow going from tragically single to manifesting an unconventional happily ever after. Fashion, beauty, fitness, reviews, reality TV, and of course let us not forget reluctant adulting. If you're thinking about it but you don't want to say it, I'm usually talking about it. Having said all that, my mantra and the biggest message I can ever give is a simple one. #WeGotThis

All of them can be found on Amazon and almost all of them are under $20. ENJOY! reallyrileypodcast.com Become A...

This weekend I had the honor of attending "Show Me the Ring" alumn Bree and DJ's wedding. Bree and DJ had such a beautiful angement story and and even more unique engagement ring.

Since then the couple added a baby to their family a...

Anyone that knows my husband marshall and I as a couple knows that he's not usually one to say no to me. In fact I think I can count on one hand the times he's put his foot down and said he would be genuinely upset if I did a particular thing against his wishes. But if i'm honest I wasn't shocked when I showed him the Skims Nipple Bra and he gave me his epic side eye. This episode is a true depiction of our marriage and how differe...

In my experience ADHD is the type of disability that often gets overlooked or even discounted all together by those closest to you. Growing up getting that diagnosis meant that you were just hyper or you could sit still. Now having been diagnosed at the age of 38 I realize just how unfair and isolating it is to have your brain function identity than others and not truly understand why. In this episode I discuss the signs that you m...

In most situations I am never afraid to wear my heart on my sleeve and have a good cry out, that is unless I just had my lashes done. But in the gym, that is the place where all of the rest of the world goes away and I am free to think of nothing else. For one hour I can switch off all of my worries, anxieties, and insecurities and be the strong woman I know I am. But lately there have been more values than peaks with my fitness jo...

This week was definitely and emotional rollercoaster for me being that mercury was in retrograde and my last baby and I did his first mommy and me PreK class. In planning today's episode I was reminded of one that I did what seems like a lifetime ago the week that my oldest son Lyric went to PreK. Remembering what if felt like as a single mom to be handing my little boy over to some teachers in a classroom and saying "Mommy will se...

With all of this talk of the sun during the Eclipse yesterday I've realized that I have just about the pastiest skin I've had since birth. growing up in Florida and being Latina I'm used to seeing my skin with a somewhat natural bronze to it, but these last few winters in Maryland have all but erased that. So if you're not into tanning beds or orange sheets from spray tanning I've put together the perfect list of inexpensive sunles...

A few listeners have been asking for The Lawn Care Papi's (Aka my husband Marshall) return to give advice on how to treat your grass for success in Spring and Summer. But before my husband gives his tips I decided to give him a little lawn care quiz to see just how much he really does know and should he be able to keep his nickname afterward?

The interwebs are buzzing all over the place about Beyonce Debuting her first ever Country Music Album "Cowboy Carter" over the weekend with mixed reviews. Critics seem to be either loving or hating it, but no matter what side of the Queen Bey camp you're on you have to give it to the woman that she is a BOSS for putting herself out there is such a different genre than what's she's known for. So naturally I thought now would be the...

If I'm being brutally honest I truly debated whether on not to answer one particular Ask Riley question for today's episode. I even considered editing it out after I told the story because there are a few things that are truly sacred in life. One of the most sacred being my marriage. However, after a heart to heart with the husband I decided to keep it very true to the promise of keeping it REAL here on Really Riley and answer this...

Kristin Cavallari broke the reality TV internet last week when she and her 24 year old boyfriend Mark Estes posted kissing pictures on their personal instagram pages. The two have been public since february of this year and have a 13 year age gap between them. I personally don't bat an eye at that age number being that my husband Marshall and I are almost seven years apart, with me being the elder of the two. (cringe that I just us...

This People Magazine article on whether or not you should leave your person or companion in the dust at TSA if they don't have PreCheck peaked my interest because this has been a long standing argument between my husband marshall and I. As a matter of fact, he's actually done this to me before while we were just dating. But trust me, he did it for an excusable reason otherwise I'm not sure that we would be husband and wife today.

Coming up in my early days in terrestrial radio I didn't have many, if any women mentors. Not that I think any less of my male mentors, but there is something special that happens when two women that respect each other get together to have an open and honest chat about the broadcasting industry as it pertains to women. My guest on this episode is Jess Dutra, Morning Show Co-Host on the Kramer and Jess on Mix 1065 in Baltimore MD. O...

I may have been a fitness ambassador for the past 7 years and have integrated the lifestyle into just about every facet of my life including how I first bonded with the love of my life. But let's be clear on one thing, I NEVER try and position myself as being able to train or create fitness plans for anyone. That would just be irresponsible of someone without actual experience and the factual knowledge, or most importantly the degr...

Wednesday is always my favorite day of the week for podcasting, but especially today because I'm still on a high from speaking at the inaugural "Conversations with Media and Entertainment" that was hosted by the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music, and Entertainment.
