Bloggers Share Their PERFECT Mother’s Day

Mother's Day, to most moms, is a day to relax and unwind according to the bloggers I "interviewed." It's not a day for extravagant gifts or have brunch or dinner at a fancy restaurant. Most of us moms just want the day off to do absolutely nothing. And there's nothing wrong with wanting a day to ourselves. Moms work hard all year long and on our special day (although Mother's Day should be everyday), we just want to be filled with lots of love, no mommy duties and lots of scrumptious … [Read more...]

Building The Perfect Sandwich With Chef Bobby Flay and Hellmann’s®

This past Monday I attended a fun and tasty event with Chef Bobby Flay and fellow bloggers at the swanky La.Venue in New York City sponsored by Hellmann’s®. Iron Chef Bobby Flay has partnered with Hellmann's to show the world how to build the perfect sandwich.  The perfect sandwich can be as small as you like or as tall as you like.  Just make sure you're creative and you have sauce (Hellmann's mayo, of course!), any meats (or no meats if you're Vegan - in that case lots of veggies for you), … [Read more...]

What Are You Doing To Improve Our Earth?

Earth Day falls on April 22nd this year. Every year is a new theme on ways to improve our beloved Mother Earth. This year's theme is called A Billion Acts of Green. The most important goal is to register one billion actions before the global Earth Summit in Rio 2012. Every year (I should say everyday - because I do) I participate in Earth Day my own way. This year is a little different for me because I am participating in a Blog Carnival with my fellow Latina Bloggers through the group … [Read more...]

Getting Gorgeous With Degree in NYC With Discount Codes!

This past weekend I had the privilege of attending my 2nd Getting Gorgeous event in New York City.  It's a beauty event that is jam-packed with awesome sponsors and bloggers founded by two sweet, wonderful ladies Vera Sweeney and Audrey McCllellan. Let me start off by saying that if you've never had the honor of meeting Vera or Audrey, you're missing out. I'm not kissing their butt (well maybe I but these two ladies are the sweetest ladies you'll ever meet. The first time I met … [Read more...]

Shout-Out Sunday – 4/3

Whoa, it's been a long while since I last posted a Shout-Out Sunday. It's not that I haven't found any good, interesting reads (I most definitely have), it's just that other things have gone in the way like life, kids, my darling husband. You know how that goes. Last night I was chatting with my good friend and fellow blogger Rachel and she asked me what happened to my Shout-Out Sunday post. I thought no one cared about that post but I guess I was wrong. And I'm grateful for her asking me … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday: Future Bloggers via Video #DisneySMMoms (linky)

It's going to take me a few more days to recover from one of the best experiences in my blogging life - the Disney Social Media Moms Conference.  I got home this past Sunday exhausted but very happy to have been one of the couple hundred bloggers who attended this amazing conference. It was my first Disney conference and hopefully it won't be my last.  I had a blast and I learned A LOT! Loved seeing old friends and absolutely loved meeting new friends. The video you're about to see was … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Disney Past (Circa 1994 & 2002)

As I take a much needed break, I thought about the Wordless Wednesday I wanted to post last night! I totally forgot. I've been running around like a chicken with no head or neck trying to get things packed and ready. It's my first time traveling with my daughter and I hope I don't forget anything.   Wish me luck! This week's Wordless Wednesday is from Walt Disney World back in 94' and 02'.  The first and last time I've been to Disney. As some of you already know, I'm attending the Disney … [Read more...]

Changes For The #DisneySMMoms Conference

Next week, I will be in Orlando for my second blog conference, the Disney Social Media Moms Conference.  I'll be in Orlando for 4 days and I'm so excited to go.  Since I started blogging, I have only been to one conference which is BlogHer 10' and it was awesome. A bit overwhelming but I learned a lot.  I'm so ready to network, meet other bloggers and spend some time at the greatest place on earth, Walt Disney World. Unfortunately things have changed since my last post about the conference. … [Read more...]

Bloggers Share Their Best and Worst Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day is 4 days away. Are you ready? :) I hope so. A few days ago I sent out an email to some bloggers and friends and I asked them if they wanted to share their best & worst Valentine's Day. I didn't get 14 responders like I had planned but at least I got a good list for you to read.  The first thing I want to say is that this post was inspired by the lovely Jai from (we first met at message boards) where she's doing something a bit different at … [Read more...]
