Heading out on the road this summer? Check out these friendly car tips before you leave your home!
Summer is finally here (well it took almost 2 months to arrive to Chicago! ) and while many familias are squashing into airplane seats to their vacation destinations, others are hitting the wide open road for a scenic road trip. In fact, 74% of Hispanics have a taken a vacation via car in the past year[1]. It’s fun to make music playlists, play car games, and store up on road-trip approved snacks, but the most important thing is to make ...

Ecuador is making history this weekend at the Super Bowl. Learn how through my latest blog post!
If you are an American Football fan, then you know that the biggest game of the year is just around the corner. I enjoy watching the Super Bowl but what I mostly enjoy are the ads and the half-time show! Just recently, I learned that Ecuador's board of tourism purchased a 30 second spot in this year's Super Bowl to showcase their amazing country which includes the famous Galapagos Islands.  Fun fact: this will be the first time an i...

Check out my latest story: I had a chance to explore the beautiful Islands of Loreto this past summer in Mexico. I can't wait to go back and visit - especially to enjoy some fresh chocolate clams. #travel #travelinglatina #latinablogger #traveldeeper  
When you think of Baja California, Mexico most people think of Cabo San Lucas. Well, guess what? There is actually more to Baja California then the party town of Cabo. Over the summer, I had the chance to visit the Islands of Loreto, Mexico which is about 6 hours north of Cabo San Lucas and from Chicago it was a total of 7 hour flight (including a layover in LA). I had no idea what to expect of this destination since one that not many p...

Check out my latest and final post for the Nueva Latina campaign! I am so blessed to have my mother as an amazing role model. Do you have a Latina role model who inspires you to succeed?
Since February, I have had the privilege to be a blogger ambassador for Procter & Gamble’s Orgullosa campaign. This is the second time I have worked with this program and I am so proud to continue on supporting it. The purpose of the Nueva Latina program is to celebrate the cultural pride and undeniable bond that Latinas share by inspiring women from across the country to reveal what it means to be a Nueva Latina. The platform this ye...

Latest post is all about U.S. culinary trips! Enjoy!
Anna Thomas said, “We all eat, and it would be a sad waste of opportunity to eat badly.” It’s an easy motto to adopt at these five resorts, where extraordinary (and out-of-the-ordinary) culinary experiences are ubiquitous. 1.      Mirbeau Inn & Spa (Skaneateles, N.Y.): Guests with a penchant for foraging can join Executive Chef Stephen Coe at nearby Plymouth Rock Oyster Farm for a tutorial on picking and shucking oysters.

Let's start having the conversation surrounding HIV and Latinos #ad  
Disclosure: This post is made possible by support from the We Can Stop HIV One Conversation at a Time campaign. All opinions are my own. Did you know that Latinos in the U.S. in 2010 had an infection rate of HIV 3 times higher than whites? As a Latina, that statistic surprised me a bit since it just seems really high! Latinos in the United States are disproportionately affected by HIV; although representing 16% of the total U.S. pop...

Camping can be a lot of fun! Especially when you do your research. #letscamp  
This is part of a summer campaign with REI; I was compensated for this post however, all opinions expressed are my own.  #LetsCamp It’s not as scary as it sounds. You just need to pick a date, it can be a quick weekend get away, pack your car and just go! Most people find it intimidating to go camping, mostly because they are afraid of the unknown, but if you actually just let your barriers down (just a tiny bit) camping can b...

Check out my latest post!
Over the weekend, I heard a friend of mine mention how she didn't like how she looked when she was younger. She would look at the mirror and call out things that she wanted to change like her curly hair (or what we Latinas call pelo malo), she pinched her nose because she didn't like her nose too wide, or how she wanted to dye her hair blonde because all her classmates had blonde hair.  After hearing these comments and so many other ...
