About Me

I’m April Monterrosa, a single Latina mix born and raised in the Southside of San Antonio, Texas. I am the travel, lifestyle, beauty writer and content creator behind aprilmonterrosa.com. My blog, along with my social media channels are my content collection that displays my life as a free-spirited career and business woman, Auntie, licensed cosmetologist, and independently published author. As a true renaissance woman, my goal is to influence and encourage others to make time for 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”.

Traveling and exploring new places, photography, going to concerts, the theater, trying new foods and cocktails with my loved ones is what I enjoy doing on my free time. I am extremely close to and proud of my family, which consists of my parents, brothers, sister in law, nephews, and my dachshund Razoo. Family is everything and I am extremely blessed with mine.

In my professional life aside from writing, I have been in the beauty and hospitality industry for over 20 years; it’s what also influences me to share my experiences, adventures, and recommendations through my social media outlets and on my blog. After a long run as licensed cosmetologist in some of the most luxurious spas, I now own a spa studio in my hometown where I offer skin care services. Hope you enjoy all you read, share, subscribe, and shine beautifully! ~April Monterrosa
