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...]

Staples’ Top Trends and Must-Have Products for 2014 Back to School. #StaplesBTS

Disclosure: I attended a Staples back-to-school event and was provided with a gift card. All opinions are 100% my own. Here in New York, we have over a week left of back-to-school shopping time.   My kids don't start school til' September 4th so I'm still scrambling around to get some last minute items they need for school. I attended a back-to-school Staples event a few weeks ago so my kids already knew what they wanted to get.  I brought back some wonderful things for my girls and they … [Read more...]

The Dirty Dancing® 25th Anniversary Celebration ~ Hosted by Skinny Cow® Productions

Movie making has changed dramatically over the past few decades. Now, many individuals have the option to choose movie theaters that have surround sound and 3D effects and also purchase Blue Ray DVD's. All of these advanced technology for movie viewing is great, but sometimes I enjoy watching a movie the way I did growing up -- the classic way. One of my ultimate favorite classic movie is Dirty Dancing®. I've watched the movie Dirty Dancing® numerous times, and even bought the soundtrack … [Read more...]

A Visit to New York City For The #LowesChallenge Event

I was invited by Lowe's to attend their Designer Challenge a few weeks ago.  Little did I know I would also meet my long time friend, Jai from Mami's Time Out. I was psyched. We have been online friends for about 7-8 years -- way before we started blogging.  It all started in an message board called Latina Beauty.  We learned a lot about each other and soon we decided to start our very own blogs. Meeting Jai in person was the highlight of my day.  I'm sure there will be other … [Read more...]

EASY Recipe: SouthWestern Pulled Pork & Roasted Potato Medallions (Courtesy of Target)

Several months ago, I went to an event that was sponsored by Target showcasing various products by Giada De Laurentiis in addition to Archer Farms items, sold exclusively by Target.

Chris O’Donnell Joins the Lunchables Team at Times Square

Earlier this week I had an amazing opportunity that doesn’t happen too often for me.  I was recently contacted by Lunchables to join them at Times Square along with other bloggers to help them reach their goal of donating up to one million pounds of fresh fruit to Feeding America AND get a chance of a lifetime to interview Chris O’Donnell (father of 5!) from the TV show NCIS: Los Angeles and movies like Batman and Robin, Scent of a woman and more. Now who’s crazy enough to say no to that? … [Read more...]

Special K Resolution Challenge: What Will You Gain When You Lose?

Are you starting a new resolution for the new year? If so, you're one of the many that will be. The top New Year's resolutions are losing weight, quit smoking, exercise more and of course, save money. This year, I'm not making any resolutions. Why? I'm simply making small changes in my life in hopes of keeping those changes to live a better life and be a better person.  Instead of losing weight, I'm interested in gaining self-confidence.  You see I've gained a little over twenty pounds … [Read more...]

Easy Recipe: Healthy Tuna Fish Sandwich (Sabroso Saturday)

After seeing Go Red Por Tu Corazon on TV last week, I have to be honest and say I've set my mind to eating right and cooking healthy for my family.  I don't want to have heart disease at an early age and I certainly don't want my family to suffer from that either. I was so happy when I was invited to an event about making one night a week a sandwich night with the Deen Brothers from the Food Network.  I chose the Tuna Fish Sandwich from the event because it is tasty, healthy and very easy to … [Read more...]

Make One Night Sandwich Night With The Deen Brothers

Yesterday I attended an event called Sandwich Night With The Deen Brothers (Paula Deen's boys Jamie & Bobby).  I was invited by Jennifer James from the MomBloggersClub who is one of my favorite people out in the blogging world. She is really helpful, smart and an all-around great person to know. The purpose of the event was to show people that serving sandwiches can be a quick and easy solution for dinnertime. It's both easy on our wallets and our waistlines ;). The Deen Brothers … [Read more...]
