San Antonio, TX
I’m April Monterrosa, the writer, social media influencer, content creator, & photographer behind shinebeautifully.me. My blog, along with my social media channels are my content collection that displays my life as a free-spirited career woman, entrepreneur, and auntie. As a true renaissance woman, my goal is to influence and encourage others (especially the busy professional like myself) to make time for family, fun, adventures, and self-care. My passion for writing as a young girl is what lead me to blogging and self-publishing my first book titled, “Shine Beautifully”.
Born and raised in the Southside of San Antonio, Texas, I am very proud of my Alamo city, the neighborhood I grew up in, and being an ambassador for the South San Antonio Chamber of Commerce. I’ve been featured in Good Housekeeping, SAXtreme Magazine, Chicano Life Magazine, a former member of the SeaWorld Wildside Bloggers , a Naturally Lindy and James Avery Artisan Jewelry ambassador and a currently a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association.
In my professional life aside from writing, I have been in the beauty and hospitality industry for over 20 years and worked in some of the most luxurious hotel resort spas in San Antonio, such as JW Marriott, Marriott International & Hyatt; it’s what also influences me to share my experiences and recommendations. Unexpectedly building up my own clientele is what motivated me to start my own spa studio business where I offer skin care and waxing services. Due to all my experience in the beauty industry, I was brought on as a brand ambassador for Naturally Lindy, an aloe vera skin care company in Beverly Hills, California. I am very blessed that I can mesh my passions together and turn them into my full-time career, all while bringing my friends and family along on my ventures. Hope you enjoy all you read, share, subscribe, and shine beautifully! ~April Monterrosa
