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...]

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...]

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...]

The Affordable Art Fair Kickoff Event at The W Recap @AAFNYC

For me art is a form of translating and expressing feelings, thoughts, memories and passions that are aren't so easy to translate into words. As a little girl I always wanted to hang my creations up on the refrigerator or in my bedroom.  You can say that I was somewhat of an aspiring artist.  I even took up drawing portraits in black and gray pencils.  My famous piece was one of Marilyn Monroe.  That love I have for art as a little girl has lived inside of me ever since. Fast … [Read more...]
