The Women of México Today

Posted by: | 1 Comment

As most of you know, I’ve been hired as a Community Manager and Ambassador for the México Today campaign. I´ve gushed enough already (here and here) about how I couldn´t ask for a better partnership, but I haven´t gushed enough about the other women ambassadors I have the privilege of sharing this space with. Today, I want to introduce you to them (yes, there are 12 male ambassadors as well and we´ll feature them soon), not only because I thinkRead More ...

MOnte Alban, Oaxaca, mexico, tour

If one thing makes México special (and pointing out just one doesn´t ever make it justice), it is the vast amount of ruins from various ancient–and very advanced–civilizations that exist throughout the country.  Every single one of these archaeological sites, be it Mayan, Aztec, Olmec, Zapotec or other, uncover mysteries that give us just tiny clues to understand the way these people lived, celebrated, adored, communicated, calculated and sustained themselves. During my recent travel as a Mexico Today ambassador toRead More ...

Now, a new study released by theRead More ...

A busy blogger mom will take any opportunity to get pampered along with friends.  I really never get to host get togethers or parties like I used to (actually, nowhere near!), so I jumped at the opportunity offered to me by Aveda to gather a group of local LA friends for a morning of relaxation, bonding and learning about their Summer Solutions products. I used to be an avid Aveda hair care  user before our personal recession-woes hit and IRead More ...

I haven´t been this excited about sharing news in a while.  And that´s a huge statement considering the last two and a half years since Roxana and I launched SpanglishBaby have been blessed with partnerships, opportunities and a community that went beyond our expectations. A month ago I received a phone call that I know will be life-changing:  I was invited to be one of 24 Ambassadors for the México Today Program–a public and private initiative which is officially launchingRead More ...

I admit I feel very weird referring to myself as an activist or advocate of any sort.  I come from a society that believes that as a woman “calladita te ves mejor” (the quieter you are the better you look). I believed it my whole life. I’ve never spoken up publicly for things I truly believe in.  I am completely illiterate when it comes to rallying up support to call, email and/or, much less, visit our representatives to voice myRead More ...
