A Nice Beauty Gift From Nuance Salma Hayek {Giveaway}

Posted by: | 101 Comments

We rarely do reviews and giveaways for the mamás raising these bilingual and bicultural kids and I think it´s time to start changing that. Don´t you? Earlier this year I found out that Salma Hayek had launched her own beauty line called Nuance, available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy locations, inspired by her abuelita in Veracruz, México – a Paris-trained cosmetologist. Something I’ve admired about Salma throughout her career is that she’s always stayed so connected to her roots and has goneRead More ...

Mexico: Family, Food, Beach and Español

My family and I arrived in Cancun last night to attend a good friend’s wedding in Playa del Carmen. We used to live in Playa – as it’s fondly known – in 2005 when hurricane Wilma destroyed Cancun. The year my husband and I spent here has been the most magical in our lives and the friendships we made still remain strong. My husband’s sister and her family live here as well, so we’ll take any excuse to come downRead More ...

The aqua of the background and the two-tone pink of theRead More ...

#GivingTuesday For Bilingual Education

Posted by: | 43 Comments

Today we’ll all be making history together as we join a new movement called #GivingTuesday. We’re all way too familiar and entrenched with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what about a day honoring the tradition of being grateful that we can even enjoy those “celebrations” and give back to others as much as we were able to get deals for us? That’s exactly the idea behind #GivingTuesday, a concept I learned about back in September when I was invitedRead More ...

Can’t Wait to Watch “Hecho en Mexico”

Posted by: | 1 Comment

On Sunday I took my daughter to the movies and was surprised to see a huge movie poster for the documentary “Hecho en México” with a picture of musician Carla Morrison on one side and of the band Kinky on the other – two Mexican artists I listen to all the time. I immediately went online to find out what this was all about and found this trailer: Now, I can not wait for November 31st to come around becauseRead More ...
