*This sponsored post was written by me in collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Orgullosa.  All opinions are 100% mine.     In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month and the spirit of Nueva Latina, we would love to have you join us for an exclusive Orgullosa Facebook chat with celebrity guest Adrienne Bailon!  The Orgullosa community already celebrates, empowers and fuels Latinas' accomplishments and dreams everyday as “mujeres con la falda bien puesta."  We celebrate where we come from and where we are going with passion and in the hope that we can be an inspiration to one another because that's how we roll!     So clear your calendars because, on September 25th, we are going to get together to talk about how our bicultural community represents strong, independent women who celebrate having the best of two worlds: one being rooted in their Hispanic culture and the other seizing their limitless potential in the U.S. The Nueva Latina!  It will be a wonderful opportunity to come … [Read more...]
