A Safe And Comfortable Ride For Kids #EvenfloPlatinum

Riding Safe with Evenflo

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Evenflo. However, all opinions are my own.   You know how when your kids are babies people always tell you to treasure those moments cause they grow up quick? We were told that so much, especially by my abuelita who has seen many babies grow up and have babies of their own (like me, for instance). I may … [Read more...]

Relaxation Destination: Del Mar, CA

beachscape

I received a complimentary stay for the purposes of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Beautiful beaches and tranquil breezes are what one would expect from an exotic, tropical getaway. Little did I know that the same resort style getaway was right here in Southern California. I hopped in my car for a short 2 hour long drive - I know for some that might seem like a trek, but … [Read more...]

REVIEW: DRAFT DAY Doesn’t Move The Chains

DRAFT DAY

For a sports film to call itself successful, it must be able to transcend the sport itself. Can it make sports interesting and entertaining to someone who doesn’t know about it? Can it teach you to care about something you don’t normally care about? This is my cinematic philosophy true of any industry or occupation. Which brings me to director Ivan Reitman’s DRAFT DAY, a football drama that … [Read more...]

Let’s Talk About The Film: #AmericanBlogger #RealAmericanBlogger

RealAmericanBlogger

It started yesterday. I saw it on feeds and I had to look. I write a ton about films, after all, so it's only natural to want to see when there is a film that is kind of about me. Me, as in an "American Blogger." Here is what I saw.   American Blogger Official Trailer from Chris Wiegand on Vimeo.   I used the day to really think about this because I was upset after seeing the … [Read more...]

Playing With Barbies… 25 Years Later #BarbieProject

Sofia BarbieProject

This is a compensated campaign as part of The Barbie Project. All thoughts and ideas are my own. I was just about to leave for Philadelphia when my grandparents called me to tell me they had found an old suitcase that had belonged to me. It was a pale yellow, didn't weigh much but what it carried had once been extremely precious to me. It was my collection of Barbie dolls that I had played with … [Read more...]

Morgan Freeman and Dr Patricia Wright Talk Island of Lemurs: Madagascar

Txtd-DOM-Final-Rated-1Sht-LEMUR

The first time I ever even heard of a lemur was when I watched 2005's animated feature Madagascar when a tribe of lemurs, led by their King, sang and danced to "I Like To Move It." That song, and those characters became a household name and children everywhere giggle over the hilarious and cute lemurs in that movie. If you were a child of the 90's, then maybe you remember a PBS show called … [Read more...]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Movie Review

captainamericaposter

Opening in theaters everywhere today is Marvel's latest installment of the Captain America series, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." Just like I said before, I wasn't all excited when I was heading to see this one. Based on the first film, I found the Captain to be a bit...hmm...boring? His story was interesting but maybe I'm more of a narcissistic playboy type (sigh...Iron Man) cause in the … [Read more...]
