Fashion Starlette brings Eye Candy Sass to Sabado Gigante

Yas Gonzalez Experta de Moda

This Cuban American fashionista has a keen eye for colors and contrasts. She is what I would call the ‘Latina Fashion Police.’ So move over, Kathy Griffen here comes Yas Gonzalez. Don’t let her sweetheart appearance fool you! On Sabado Gigante, Yas made her debut illustrating the importance of self confidence with sass, politely emphasizing the importance of “Do’s” and the “Do not even think about it, of being in-style.”

Let’s be real, Miami is the heart of viewing bodacious buff men and babies with the Jlo booty. But its not all about the shape, its about the colors. Yas new collection of swimwear ” Black and White”, focuses on the use of colors that make you want to say “YUMMM!” Colors that bring out that twinkle to your eye, like when you see your favorite pair of stilettos through a window on 5th Ave, or when you devour your favorite piece of chocolate. Where you can’t have just one. Her designs makes you want to say “Yes! Give me one of everything!”

“During my studies in fashion design, I started to launch my own line of swimwear. I did four collections that captivated the attention of buyers and large chain stores purchasers. That’s when I decided to look into how to go about massively producing , distributing and selling my swimwear. My brand has been embraced the biggest fashion buyers in the industry. ” Yas said.

Before becoming one herself, Yas became inspired by the most prominent stylists in the world. Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen and Christian Louboutin. Entertainers also played a big role in creating her eccentric designs. Who wouldn’t want to see these icons in some sexy swimwear? Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez with her new rumored arm-candy, William Levy. Uh! Yeah, that’s a topic for another day.

Saludos con los Drs. Pimentel: Staying Hydrated


With the hot weather among us, it’s very important to stay hydrated especially in the subways, working outdoors, and participating in outdoor activities. The circulation in your body helps to dissipate heat, but when the air temperature is higher than 90°F, cooling by sweat is the only way to prevent the body from overheating. Cooling through evaporation, or sweating, is only possible when your body has been provided with enough fluids. If your body hasn’t consumed enough fluids to sweat and cool itself, your body core temperature will rise and begin to destroy tissues and organs. We know its scary stuff but here is some very important information to prepare for the summer heat. Stay cool!

If you aren’t hydrated enough it can result in:

  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Digestive problems
  • Fatal collapse of the circulatory system

Ways to prevent dehydration and heatstroke:

  • Eat light meals more often instead of a single large meal
  • Eat water-filled foods like watermelon, oranges, pineapple, grpes, raspberries, grapefruit, celery and coconuts
  • Keep a water bottle with you at all times
  • Wear breathable cotton clothing

What to do if you’re feeling dehydrated:

  • Get out of the sun and seek shelter immediately
  • Begin to reintroduce fluids to the system, cool water is the best
  • Apply cooling compresses to the neck, wrists and inner thighs
  • Seek medical attention if you are suffering visible effects

VIDEO: Shakira “Sale El Sol”!

Shakira has a new song called Sale El Sol meaning “the sun also rises”. It’s the first Spanish language ballad song we’ve heard in awhile (not including the Spanish version of her English songs). The video has a rock vibe to it and no, she’s not shaking her hips. Shakira wears a beautiful princess gown and in another outfit, rips her tank top off. The song is of a love she lost. Perhaps this has ties to her and Antonio de la Rua breaking up after 11 years of commitment. Nevertheless, keep on rockin’, Shakira!
