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...]

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.

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.

A New Love For Us All #CelebrateCloser {Twitter Party}


This is a compensated campaign with Crest and Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions are my own. When my husband and I met, the only football he knew of was of the Eagles (Philadelphia, sigh) type. For the first few years of our relationship, it was me getting to know that game. I'm actually not to shabby at it. But, over the past few years it was my turn to teach him a thing or two about the … [Read more...]

My daughter has been enamored with American Girl for the past couple years. I remember the day I brought home her first doll, the second I unveiled her, the smile and that little squeal….priceless. Her doll is always with her, and since that first we have added a Bitty Baby and Cecile to our growing collection and I don’t think it’ll stop … [Read more...]

Degree for Him And More Cuddles for Us #HazMásConDegree


This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Degree. However, all thoughts are my own. When Joe and I met, we were both young and full of horrible decisions. He was 19 and I was 21, but even then, I just knew there was something about him that I was connected to. It took us several years before we actually decided to make a relationship really happen but when … [Read more...]
