The 5 Things You Should Know About THE OTHER WOMAN


Director Nick Cassavetes’ THE OTHER WOMAN may look like your everyday, female-driven revenge comedy, but trust me when I say it really isn’t. While the Melissa Stack written film recalls the effervescent vibrancy (and hilarity) of films like THE FIRST WIVES CLUB and NINE TO FIVE, it also gives us a refreshing look at a very modern female friendship. In the film, Carly (Cameron Diaz) discovers … [Read more...]

EvenfloPlatinum Safety

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Evenflo. All opinions are my own.

In fact, it was one of the reasons we delayed buying one for Sofia, even though she's … [Read more...]

REVIEW – HEAVEN IS FOR REAL Is Sort Of A Heavenly Journey


If there are two topics we’ve all been told to avoid in polite conversation, they’re politics and religion. With Hollywood having plundered the rich political landscape (in satire and whatnot), they’ve turned their attention to taboo topic number two – religion. While religious films are not necessarily a new thing when it comes to the silver screen (Kirk Cameron basically re-ushered them … [Read more...]

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


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...]

Now the filmmaker is returning to cineplexes with the powerful faith-based drama, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL. The film, co-scripted by Christopher Parker, follows pastor Todd and Sonja Burpo’s (Greg Kinnear and Kelly Reilly) journey after their son … [Read more...]

REVIEW: DRAFT DAY Doesn’t Move The Chains


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


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...]
