Wordless Wednesday: Trained Monkey #WW

It's been a while since I posted a Wordless Wednesday and it's one of the easiest posts to write! Right? ;) I call this photo "Trained Monkey" only because it was taken in a metro-North train in NYC AND look at what my daughter is doing.  I know I shouldn't let her do this but she's only 6 for a little while ;). Enjoy! … [Read more...]

I’m Teaming with the Tropicana OJ Express at Grand Central Terminal in NYC

I'm thrilled to be a part of the Tropicana Team as one of their TropiMomma Ambassadors. I've been a Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice consumer for as long as I can remember and it's a product I believe in and buy every week for my family. According to a Tropicana survey, one in four Americans start the day off in a bad mood.  I hate to say that I am THAT one.  It's the "waking up early" part that I dislike.  I love mornings but I wish I wasn't exhausted as soon as I get up. It does change … [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 am...lol) but these two ladies are the sweetest ladies you'll ever meet. The first time I met … [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...]

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...]
