Check Out The Hyatt Regency McCormick Hotel Next Time You Stay In Chicago! @HyattMcCormick #Ad

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hyatt Regency McCormick Hotel. All opinions are 100% mine. As many of you already know, I will be attending a blogging conference in Chicago this year. We have been very fortunate to have the Hyatt Regency McCormick come on board and offer us a discounted stay at their hotel. Since I am taking my family with me on this trip, the most important thing to me was to secure reservations at a hotel that would make them comfortable and see to all their needs. After all, making sure my family is happy is my number one priority whenever we travel anywhere or stay at any hotel. After seeing the images of the Hyatt McCormick online and experiencing first-hand their amazing customer service when I booked our reservations, I was confident that this was indeed the perfect hotel for our visit to Chicago. What's even more exciting is the fact that the Hyatt McCormick has just recently undergone a $110 million dollar renovation and expansion … [Read more...]

What Would Having Free DreamHost Web Hosting Mean To You? #ad

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of DreamHost Web Hosting. All opinions are 100% mine.     Three years ago, I made the best decision that I possibly could have made for my blog and for my brand.  It took a lot of blood, sweat, tears and a whole lot of research before I finally took steps towards self-hosting my own blog.  After careful consideration, I realized that I would have to do so in order to take my blog to the next level. It is a decision that I have never regretted and that has paid off in dividends for me.     Most readers don't realize the costs associated with maintaining an active blog.  One of these costs is the decision to self-host.  Although it is beneficial in the long-run, in my opinion, it is not free and it is important to choose a web host that is affordable while meeting your business and blogging needs at the same time.  Most bloggers opt for shared hosting which means that many websites reside on a single web server.  This is usually an … [Read more...]

Look Good And Feel Good Despite #ALLERGYFACE This Spring! #ZYRTEC #Ad

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrtec and Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions are 100% mine.     It's ironic that I was going to write this post today because I am suffering terribly from allergies this week.  My allergies came on in full force around Wednesday afternoon with a variety of the usual symptoms including a scratchy throat, a stuffy nose, and itchy and watery eyes.  Things have only gotten worse and today I feel like my head is literally going to explode with the congestion.     Unfortunately, allergy symptoms not only make you feel terrible but they also wreak havoc on your facial appearance by making your eyes glassy, causing your skin to swell and look blotchy, and making the skin under your nose raw and red from continuous nose blowing.  As you can see from the photo below, I'm suffering from a full blown case of what is commonly referred to as “ALLERGY FACE™” :     Looking my best is very important to me so I am always seeking ways … [Read more...]
