I was in San Diego recently and I crossed the border into Tijuana so the friends I was staying with could go shopping at Walmart. It was Mexican candy heaven! I spent two years in Mexico as a child and I got hooked on many of the candies sold there at the time. ¿Has probado los Bubu Lubus? ...

The Only Convertible Car Seat Your Niños Will Need

One of the best parts of living close to my familia is that I have several loving people who help me take care of my niños. The only bad thing is that this means everyone has to have two cars seats in their car so they can help with school pickup and drop-off when necessary. So, between my car, my husband’s, our nanny’s, my mom’s and my sister’s, all in all we need 10 car seats! Well, you can imagineRead More ...

Living in Colorado is awesome, but it would be completely perfect if it had the ocean! Whenever I travel anywhere near the ocean, I make it a point to go – especially if it’s the Pacific. It calls me. I identify with it. We’re connected. Not only because I’m a pisces, but because I’ve always lived near it. My dad put me in the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean back home in Lima when I was barely aRead More ...

As many of you know, Ana and I were in San Diego for the BlogHer ’11 conference a week ago where we were able to spend a bunch of time with other fellow Latina bloggers – some of which you can see in the photo below which was taken with my new Motorola XOOM.

I recently got a bunch of Crayola goodies in the mail, just in time for Back to School, which was pretty early for my daughter who started Kindergarten the first day of August. All the products are part of Crayola’s new line of washable, smudge-proof and odorless dry erase crayons which are supposed to never dry out. The products, all of which are available at Walmart, included: Crayola Dry- Erase Bright Crayons Crayola Dual-Sided Dry-Erase Board Crayola 3D Dry-Erase ActivityRead More ...

Before I had my son, I had heard a lot of other mothers speak about their preference among brands when it came to diapers for their sons. I wasn’t really sure what they were referring to since I’d only use cloth diapers and one particular brand with my daughter (my attempt to go with a cheaper brand was a bad, bad decision which resulted in a terrible rash I still feel guilty about). So, when I had my son, IRead More ...

Wordless Wednesday: Do You Recycle?

Posted by: | 1 Comment

I recently read that according to the Environmental Protection Agency, 66% of the stuff we trash every day could be recycled. Unfortunately, only about 25% is actually being recycled in the United States. Part of that has to do with the fact that just because you put it in the recycle bin doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll get recycled. Say what? Well it all depends on whether you know what you’re doing (did you know pizza boxes are NOT recyclable?) andRead More ...
