A Kleenex Field Trip at the Amercian Museum of Natural History (AMNH)

I grew up visiting the American Museum of Natural History.  The museum has a special place in my heart not only because I enjoy visiting every year but because my first visit to the museum happened when I was just six-years-old.  It was my very first field trip with my first grade class. It's funny, my daughter is now six-years-old and I remembered my first visit through her eyes.  So for me, it's a nostalgic feeling each and every time I visit. Last Thursday, my kids and I visited the … [Read more...]

JAFRA NYC Beauty Event

Sadly I could not make the JAFRA event but I'm glad La Latina Loquita was able to cover the event for New York Chica. Please give a warm welcome to Victoria Love. NewYorkChica.com was invited to experience a beauty event on behalf of Jafra Cosmetics which was held at Marquee in Manhattan and sponsored by PrettyCity.com. Now I'm a MAC girl through and through, so I was a little skeptical at first. I have very sensitive skin and with the wrong makeup or face-wash, I break out like a teenager … [Read more...]

Decorating Cakes With Duff Goldman From Ace Of Cakes

Watching shows on Food Network has been an obsession for me since my husband and I got DirectTV when we first moved into our house.  I had no idea there was a channel dedicated to food (no, I wasn't living under a rock but it sure felt like it...lol).  I remember watching Emeril Live and Rachael Ray (they were my fave shows back then) cooking up some delicious meals,  I would get so relaxed but also wishing that I was there tasting all the yummy foods too. My obsession is still with the Food … [Read more...]
