Join Us For The Coca-Cola #ForTheDream Education Bilingual Twitter Party! @CocaCola #Ad

*This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Dime Media and Coca-Cola.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.     I can still remember all of the educational goals and dreams that I started mapping out for bot of my sons from as early as when they were in my womb.  Education is a central focus among Latino families with so many planning for their child to be the first to attend college in the United States. This summer Coca-Cola and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund teamed up to make a difference and help more families achieve their education goals. The #ForTheDream program is helping Latino families and students prepare, plan and pay for their college education, and raising awareness of the college resources available to them.    Through this summer’s #ForTheDream movement Coca-Cola will donate $1 for every social post up to $10,000 to the Hispanic Scholarship!

How Are Your Eyes? Join Us For The #TransitionsLens Twitter Party! @Transitions #Ad

    The fall brings on many delicious opportunities to enjoy some of our favorite foods. But many of those favorites are also loaded in sugar and calories. Fast approaching is November which is Diabetes Awareness Month.  My father is diabetic and I have become diabetic since having suffered from gestational diabetes with my younger son.     Diabetes is a silent enemy and over 90 percent of severe vision loss and blindness are caused by a serious vision condition called diabetic retinopathy. This can be identified and addressed early on based on the changes that occur in the eye that are visible during a comprehensive eye exam from an eye doctor.     Join Transitions Optical and Latina Mom Bloggers on October 22nd for an important chat, “How are your EYES?” Annual Vision Screening Twitter Party.

The Charmin Traditions Bilingual Twitter Party Is Almost Here! #TuiteaDesdeElTrono #Partner

*This is part of a sponsored campaign with Charmin and Latina Mom Bloggers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.      Keeping cultural traditions going is very important to me.  I was raised in Spain and some of my fondest memories from my childhood include details around my grandmother's cooking, the stories that she told me, and the things that she taught me about being a woman and a mother.     Now that I have my own family and my own home, I often find myself referring to these customs and traditions as a guide.  It is comforting to know that my own children will pass them down to their own kids and that they will also have fond memories from their childhood.     It is for these very reasons that I feel so connected to beauty queen and ¡Despierta América! television host, Ana Patricia González.  Small traditions from her childhood in Mexico also transport her to those beloved memories and moments.  Having such loving reminders of her roots have had a profound … [Read more...]

Join Us For The #MyNovela “Lo Que La Vida Me Robó” Twitter Party with @Univision #Ad

This post was created in partnership with the Stiletto Blogger Network and Univision. However, all opinions expressed herein are my own.    If you are like me, you love shows with the reoccurring themes of power, love, family, betrayal and wealth.  Add these themes to a novela/soap opera and you have gotten my immediate attention.  That is why I just can't stop watching “Lo Que La Vida Me Robó” which is a Mexican novela that is set in a colorful village called Aguazul. Don't just take my word for how juicy their story lines are, go peruse some previews of the show on the dedicated novelas video page.     You will be introduced to protagonists who are driven by some of the same hopes and aspirations that you and I have.  Just like in real life, these characters are faced with adversity along with the intrusions of controlling parents and competitive friends who revel in stirring up drama, instigating financial hardships and generally making life seem impossible at times.  Not only … [Read more...]
