About - Liv by Viv with Dr. Vivian Skip to content

Hey You!

Don’t you wish there were more style options for Midsize and Curves? Yeah, me too. Good news: You have come to the right spot!

Here's My Deal...

Hey! I’m Dr.Vivian Rodriguez, an educational psychologist, mom, and blogger who loves to talk about life, style for Midsize and Curves, creating, wellness, and mental health. 

I started blogging in 2016, right after my 40th birthday, (I call it a midlife creative burst instead of a midlife crisis) then launched a podcast, Don’t Mix In, to create a space for independent women to talk about style and substance. To talk about the complexities of being a woman who is authentic and thriving! 

I built my blog and brand while juggling a full time job as an  educational psychologist, having a tight budget, being a mom & wife, and earning a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. I studied the power of community and how it helps special educators effectively support students. Good stuff, right?

Think of Liv by Viv as Pinterest for Midsize & Curves…

Quick way to remember me – If Jackie Brown and Brene Brown had a baby, that would be me 🙂

A Little More Info....

You will usually find me on my way to get coffee or matcha, going to Target (don’t you just love that place??), finishing up at the gym – let me take my sweaty selfie first – and snagging up an item for Midsize and Curves! Top that off with me getting excited that I received an item that I ordered online!

I am a bilingual Spanish speaking (working on the writing) Dominican American, an Afrolatina. I am both Black and Latina and wouldn’t have it any other way. Es parte de lo que soy!

I live in the Greater Los Angeles area with my husband and two kids. I’m not perfect or preachy, just trying like everyone else. I’m so glad you are here! 

Now, go ahead and snoop around the blog, I think you will like it! 

I also have a podcast, Don’t Mix In, the Women’s Podcast for Life, Style & Substance.
