My name is Marina. My last name is Oros, which is Spanish for Golds!

I was born/raised in San Diego to two amazing parents from Michoacan, and yes, Español is my first language. I’m 28 and have 2 boys, Ramses, 9, and Romeo, 6, and a baby girl, Rosalie, she joined our family on November 1, 2015. I’ve been married for 9 years.

I graduated from the Poway Academy of Hair Design (currently known as Bellus Academy) in 2006 as a massage tech and esthetician. Not feeling fully satisfied, I returned to school and graduated as a medical assistant in 2008 and that has been my profession ever since. Pretty soon, I’ll be back in school again to become a nurse practitioner and you’ll be calling me Nurse Golds 😉

I have a love of fashion, reading, and Disneyland! You can frequently find me hiding behind a good book, hitting up craft fairs, or escaping to the beach. Whenever I find those rare moments of not chasing after my kids, I’m hanging out with my church’s mom group, planning our (church) wedding, or out hiking. I’ve taken up hobby in making hair bows and have turned my daughter into my own living fashionista muñecita and love dressing her up and showing it off.

I’ve done a few 5k’s and survived my first half marathon in August 2014: Disney Half Marathon.

I’m a mom blogger over at POPSUGAR select, a sweat pink ambassador, and a Legoland Insider. I’ve worked with Hipnotic Magazine and Young.Chic.San Diego.
