Xbox at E3


I attended the Electronic Entertainment Expo...and it was glorious!  For years I’ve watched E3 coverage on TV and on my XBox, longing for the day that I would get to be there in person.  And it finally happened! Thanks to XBox I had the opportunity to experienced first hand the adrenaline rush of being surrounded by a bunch of fellow video game junkies while getting the scoop on what’s new … [Read more...]

Mother Daughter Time at #DennysDiner


This is a sponsored post for Denny's as a Denny's Diner Ambassador. All thoughts are my own. My baby is about to start 2nd grade in just a few weeks, and summer is coming to an end. I know my time with Sofia is limited, so I try to throw in some Mother-Daughter days, where we do things like get our nails done and have a "lady lunch." While our nails are usually easy to agree on, lunch? … [Read more...]

One Dress At A Time #BarbieProject

Design Barbie Dresses

This is a sponsored post with Barbie. All thoughts are my own.   Sofia is a month away from turning 7. Wow. My baby is about to be 7 yrs old, where did the time go? Everyday, when I talk to her or play with her, I see just how much she has grown from the day before, even though I could swear it was just yesterday I was cradling her to sleep in my arms. In so many ways, she is still … [Read more...]

Planes: Fire and Rescue Zooms Into Your Heart


I grew up with all the Disney classics, and I can’t deny that I get excited when I hear about a new Disney movie, especially now that I have kids! I don’t miss an opportunity to take my little ones to the movies, and watch them in the comfort of our own home. It’s something that I look forward to with 4-year-old boys. Soon after Planes released, it was announced that a sequel was already in … [Read more...]

Join Us for the TMobile #MúsicaNonStop Bilingual #TwitterParty


This is a sponsored post for Latina Mom Bloggers and TMobile. All thoughts are my own. Music is part of who we are. It makes us want to dance, cry, and celebrate. It becomes part of our cultural fabric and defines our moments. TMobile knows just how important music is to us which is why they want to make sure that the music never stops. TMobile’s plans allow you to stream music without … [Read more...]

REVIEW: SEX TAPE Is Far Less Than Sexceptional

1138130 - SEX TAPE

Marriage isn’t all champagne and rainbows. Don’t get me wrong; at times it really can be. But if you want rainbows, you’re going to have to endure some rain. And for the couple in director Jake Kasdan’s SEX TAPE, the dark clouds are looming. Playing like one long (and totally raunchy) commercial for the iPad, this is a shenanigan-laden, almost humor-free festival of stupid absurdity that … [Read more...]

You Are What You Eat #LolaTalks


This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Being Latino and Oscar Mayer.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.     Have you heard that saying: You are what you eat? Well for me, it happens to be true. You see, I see myself in many ways and it's ever changing as time goes on. Right now though? At this stage in my life, I see myself as strong, fierce, and someone … [Read more...]

5 Ways To Still Be Cool (Even If Your Kids Don’t Think So) #PoiseWithSAM


I wrote about my experience with Poise Microliner as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #PoisewithSAM As the years go on, my daughter seems to think I'm less and less "cool" and more often than not, I'm just "mommy, you don't get it!!" I swear I thought I had at least 6 more years before this happened! Well, it's here and it's now, so I try to show ways that mommy does get it and mommy … [Read more...]

Outdoor Water Games: Rubber Duck Races #LowesCreator

Rubber Duckie Water Racers

I am a member of the Lowe's Creators and Influencers and received a gift card for the project below. However, all opinions and photos are my own.   SUMMER! I love summer. I know our days are usually warm here in L.A. but when it's summer, there's less traffic, more kids running around and everyone is just in a summery sort of way. We love going to the beach or some local splash … [Read more...]

Soccer Fun and #PasstheLove

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Being Latino and Mondelez.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.   My husband grew up in a city where American football, reigned supreme. He knew nothing of futbol until I came along, and even that, I only knew from memories of childhood from watching my abuelito and tios yelling at the TV. So this discovery has been a journey … [Read more...]
