This is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos are all my own. Enjoy! 

It’s still January so I can still say HAPPY 2014! So much happening this year in terms of personal plans with the family, work related travel and a new business focus.

In terms of bigger events, it’s time for the World Cup which will be held in BRAZIL this summer. I’m only a fútobl fan every 4 years, especially when your home country has made it. I’ll be cheering on Chile (¡por supuesto!) UK and US. Sorry, I just can’t choose one over the other!

This is a sponsored post in partnership with KnowYourOTCs. Cute kids with spring allergies and mocos are my own. News flash: the little people in our lives get spring allergies too. Who knew? However treating their symptoms and finding relief are different than for adult sufferers. I didn’t much on this and maybe some of you don’t either. As a serious allergy suffer — and I’m talking prescription medication taken with an over-the-counter one AND nasal spray (eeeeek!) on those extra pollen induced {Read More}

Wear Sunscreen NOT Sunburns #ChooseSkinHealth

Share Button

This is sponsored post in collaboration with Neutrogena® and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, all opinions expressed are my own. It’s sunscreen season and time to think about your skin health more than ever. Memorial Day will mean spending time outdoors and the rest of the summer months should be about enjoying the beach, the kids doing cannon balls at the pool or playing with the hose in the backyard — NOT about painful sunburned skin. Scary to think but 1 in {Read More}

Related Post: How Hispanics Celebrate Mother’s Day I can say with absolute certainty that when you are invited to dinner at an Hispanic home you will NOT be done and out the door by 9:00pm. Dinners and social get togethers are an EXPERIENCE. An aperitivo to start, then a big meal with laughter, story telling, plenty of wine and right when many think it’s {Read More}

I was surprised with a roller skating and jumping performance by my kids — seriously, so so cute and ridiculously funny. Mother’s Day naturally had me thinking of motherhood and how our job is to care for, provide for and love our families. But what {Read More}

Dove Beauty Stories is a sponsored campaign with Dove and The Motherhood and this is MY story because every woman in beautiful! “Si un chico no ve que tu eres linda, ¡es un tonto!” exclaimed my Oma wiping away my tears after being rejected and made fun of by a boy.

This is a sponsored video post in collaboration with Target and MamásLatinas. All stories and untranslatable moments are my own. Around the time I was 15,  I realized that most (okay, ALL) of my friends didn’t quite celebrate their moms on Mother’s Day like we did in my home. Our way involved more familia — as in primos, tíos and friends of the family who were close enough to be family. In this video, see one way your favorite Chilean blogger (that {Read More}
