My Top Favorites From Getting Gorgeous with Restylane Silk 2015

It's not very often that I attend blog events being that I'm a full-time working mom and I work 2 hours away from the city.  Most events are held during the day which means I can't always attend unless I leave my job early, take a personal day or (gasp!) call out sick! I don't have many personal days nor sick days so I like to save them for those days when someone in my family is really sick. But then there are events such as Getting Gorgeous that I wouldn't miss out on even if it meant … [Read more...]

New Exhibit at AMNH ~ Opening April 4, 2015 ~ #LifeattheLimits: Stories of Amazing Species

My daughters and I were invited to a media preview to check out AMNH's (The American Museum of Natural History in New York City) newest exhibit, Life at the Limits: Stories of Amazing Species.  And amazing they are! Let me ask you a few questions. What if you could hold your breath for up to two hours? Or even gulp down a snack 10 times your own weight? Or how about living in crushing depths where there is no sunlight to support any kid of life? Do you think you would survive? Yeah … [Read more...]

Johnson’s #NoMoreTangles NYC Event #LatinaBloggers

Hey everyone! Did you know that Johnson's Baby Brand have been providing comfort and care for babies through their products for over 100 years? Yes, folks 100 years!  You can't say that about a lot of products. I'm happy to say that I've been a Johnson's customer for YEARS! Not only did I grow up with Johnson's Baby Lotion and baby powder but I've used those same products and more on all of my three children.  My youngest is 9 years old and I still buy Johnson's Baby Shampoo so I don't … [Read more...]

Come Celebrate World Ocean’s Day Event at the New York Aquarium #WorldOceansDay

Disclosure: I am a member of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Zoo Crew. This post is part of a sponsored campaign. I received membership for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own. Hey everyone! We just got back from visiting the New York Aquarium and we are beat! It took us 2-1/2 hours to get to Brooklyn from the Hudson Valley because of a lot of traffic but it was well worth it.  The last time I visited the aquarium was in 1998. Times have change especially after Hurican … [Read more...]

Disney FROZEN Review & Exclusive Photos! In Theaters TODAY! #DisneyFrozen

As a huge fan of Disney films and owner of pretty much all the “classics”, I honestly believe Disney's new movie FROZEN is yet another triumphant film, fit to call a classic.  I was truly overwhelmed with emotions while watching this film.  I was so connected to each character in a special way and when the story came to an end, tears just came down my face because it was just so beautiful.  The narrative is inspired by a fairy tale (Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen”), a story of two … [Read more...]

Grana Padano and Lidia Bastianich Teach Healthy Eating with Kids at Eataly

This month my daughter and I had the opportunity to cook some delicious and healthy recipes with Lidia Bastianich and Grana Padano in La Scoula Grande right inside Eataly in New York City. I've been a fan of Lidia's Italy since I was a teenager. My mother-in-law is also a huge fan. My mother-in-law always says, "All Lidia has to do on that show is throw some onion and garlic into a pan and I start to drool!" I enjoy Lidia's recipes because her approach is fresh, rustic, and simple. We … [Read more...]
