Car and Racing Movies You Gotta Watch

Rush movie poster

With Furious 7 setting the box office on fire around the world, we are reminded of how fun it is to watch cars drive at, as Data said in Star Trek: Nemesis, “unsafe velocities.” When racing films and car chases are captured just right, the result can be incredibly exhilarating to watch. Deep down we all would love to drive at breakneck speeds, but common sense and a deep fear of getting tickets … [Read more...]

The New 2015 Hyundai Sonata #NewSonata

New 2015 Hyundai Sonata

I was provided with travel and accommodations to test out the new 2015 Hyundai Sonata, however, all thoughts are my own. There are some great things happening in ... Alabama? Yes, you read that right! Montgomery, AL to be exact - the home of the Hyundai manufacturing plant where I got to see first hand how these cars are built.  The Montgomery plant, which started building cars in 2005 makes … [Read more...]

The 2015 Ford Mustang Unveiled in Hollywood, CA


I attended a media event for the purposes of this post. No compensation was received. All thoughts are my own.  Very few things can be considered American icons, and the Ford Mustang is very well one of them. I've loved Mustang's for as far back as I can remember. And even though I'm not a connoisseur per se, my dream car is a vintage (64 - 69) Mustang in a sexy red or sleek … [Read more...]

Getting Away with the Ford Escape #FordEscape


Disclosure: I received a car to use for one week for the purposes of this post. All opinions, thoughts and photographs are 100% my own. My family and I were invited to go camping to close up our summer. It was the weekend before everyone headed back to school, back to schedules...back to daily life. I thought great! What a way to end summer! My husband brought me quickly down to … [Read more...]

Dear Dude Who Hit My Car While You Were Texting #ItCanWait

My Poor Car

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with AT&T and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own. It was the second week of June and summer was in full force. The days were hot and none of us liked leaving our air conditioned home longer than we had to. On a hot Sunday morning, my husband headed out to get some items needed for a fun Sunday breakfast he … [Read more...]

Food, Wine and The Buick Discovery Tour 2013 #BuickLA

2014 Buick Encore

In November of last year, GM contacted me to attend the L.A. Auto Show with them. I couldn't go myself but I had a great contributor go for me and she got a chance to experience some fabulous cars, including some in the Buick line. A few weeks ago I got my chance to check out Buick in all it's glory, but with an added bonus- celebrity chefs, food and wine. NOM. I was sent to my first … [Read more...]

The Nissan Pathfinder at the L.A. Auto Show- The Car for Family Roadtrips #NissanEspanol #NissanPathfindr


Now that my daughter is older and doesn't whine over being in a car for over an hour (thanks for teaching her that my dear 100 and 405 freeways), we are starting to think about taking a few more family roadtrips. The problem, however, is space. The man is 6'3 and needs leg room, so if the seat goes too far back, my daughter can basically kick him the entire ride because her legs are also very long … [Read more...]

LA Auto Show with GM- Day 1 (Or How I Fell in Love with the Chevy Impala)

When I was asked by Yolanda to cover the LA Auto Show for her as a part of the GM Influencer program, I was excited...and scared. I don't know about cars. I don't know what torque is. I don't really understand horse power...except that it makes your car go fast. I wasn't sure what I was going to do or ask while I was there. Yolanda assured me that they were interested in what I thought as a … [Read more...]
