Get Ready For Summertime With The Peanuts Gang! #PeanutsAtTarget @Snoopy @Target #Giveaway #Ad

    Now that we are in the month of June, the countdown is on until the end of school here in New York City!  Most other states are already on summer vacation but ours does not begin until the end of June so my sons and I are eagerly awaiting the moment when we can enjoy lazy summer nights and fun outdoor summer activities.  Unfortunately, Hubby won't be on vacation at the same time as we are but I'm sure he will find some time to slip away and have some fun with us on our adventures.     This summer, we plan on enjoying some fun with our new Peanuts Products exclusively from Target.  There is no better feeling than enjoying a beautiful summer day enjoying the sun at the pool or beach with our buddies from Peanuts.  This year, they are celebrating their 65th anniversary!  It is so wonderful that my boys can now enjoy a timeless classic that I, myself enjoyed with my siblings as a young girl.    Even more exciting is the fact that, this fall, Peanuts will be releasing their … [Read more...]

Let Your Beauty Radiate This Holiday Season! #RadiantSavings #Giveaway #Ad #Spon

    I love the holidays because it is just a magical time of the year.  It just seems like everyone is on their best behavior.  Also, there is an air of joy and surprise as we all try to give our loved ones the perfect gifts and spend time with those who truly matter in our lives.  Most people try to slow down and prioritize their time so they don't spend too much time working or away from their families.  This is exactly why it is my favorite time of the year.     The holidays are also a great time to dress up and look beautiful.  After all, who doesn't love to have an excuse to look their best and to let their beauty radiate outwardly to others?  I personally love the way that my husband looks at me when I get beautified for the holidays.  He always gazes at me like I am the only woman that he sees in the entire room.    This holiday season, shine from head to toe with special offers on Unilever beauty products at Target. Ring in the holidays in style by giving yourself the gift of … [Read more...]

Check Out How Easy It Is To Flip The Script! #TargetSponsored @Target ($50 eGC #Giveaway)

*Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own.     Being someone who lives with a chronic medical condition, I have to keep track of quite a few medications on a regular basis.  It is crucial that my new pharmacy not only accept my insurance coverage but that they also seamlessly accept all of my prescriptions right away.  That is why I knew right away that Target Pharmacy was the right choice for my family and I!     When I transferred to Target Pharmacy, I was told that all they would need to transfer all of my prescriptions was the name and phone number of my current pharmacy along with each prescription number.  Once I provided them with that information, they just took care of the rest.  As a Working Mom, I appreciated not having to deal with a huge hassle just to make the switch.    Aside from the convenience of switching my medications to Target Pharmacy, my husband and I loved the fact that we could take advantage of Target Pharmacy … [Read more...]

Enjoy A Better Pharmacy Experience At Target! @Target #TargetSponsored #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in a sponsored campaign on behalf of Social Chorus for Target.  All opinions are 100% mine.    As many of you know, I am a six year Leukemia Survivor and I have had to learn very quickly how to advocate for myself when it comes to my medical care and treatment.  Since I depend on life-saving medications for my survival, it is very important that I have a reliable and affordable pharmacy to fill all of my prescriptions.  Aside from that, I also look for great customer service and convenience since I am a busy Working Mom who juggles many roles on a regular basis.     When it comes to having an overall better pharmacy experience, Target offers some great features that I personally look for when choosing a pharmacy.  I have some personal favorites that fit into my lifestyle and make life much easier for me on a daily basis.  I'm not very good at keeping track of my pharmacy rewards.  My husband jokingly refers to the fact that I've cost him millions in lost rewards … [Read more...]

Operation Covert Christmas Mission! #MyKindOfHoliday @Target #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in a campaign on behalf of Target. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.    Every Christmas, it seems like it is getting harder and harder to figure out what our boys want as part of their wish list.  They change their mind from day to day and my husband and I have to be careful not to question them too much since they both still believe in Santa Claus and they expect him to know exactly what they want to receive. Luckily, this year we will have the help of Jonna Mendez, a former CIA intelligence officer, to show us how to determine the gifts our kids want the most this holiday season.  She has teamed up with Target to help moms who are struggling to figure out what their kids really want this year.    Jonna Mendez is a retired CIA intelligence officer with more than 25 years of service as well as being a mother and a grandmother.  I would say that these qualifications make … [Read more...]

Bring On The Ugly Sweaters This Holiday Season! #HilariousHoliday @Target #Ad

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Social Chorus for Target. I received a gift card to facilitate a shopping trip and promotional item as a thank you for participating.    Everybody knows that the holidays are the perfect time to bring those ugly holiday sweaters out of the closet.  Although some might consider them to be a fashion faux pas, others like me, think that they are a great way to show your holiday sense of humor.  After all, if you can't laugh at yourself then how will you get past all of the curveballs that life throws at you on a daily basis.     When I was little, my mother would always take advantage of the holidays to put matching ugly sweaters on my sister and I right around the holidays.  I never understood why she did this because we are not twins and I always hated having the same clothes on as my little sister.  Luckily for me, there wasn't the abundance of technology and electronic devices back then to document these hideous outfits so there aren't … [Read more...]

All opinions are 100% mine.Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target.       A girl can never have too much music or too much color in her life, right?  Well add to this mix centuries of Latino music and culture in my blood and you have a recipe for this woman who marches to the beat of her own drummer.  You can observe my passion for life and music in everything that I do from the bounce in my step to the color that I paint my nails.    Now, it's really important that I use products and accessorize in order to support my unique personality and to keep my personal beat alive at all times.  My music has to be portable so I can take it with me when I'm running around being fabulous and it has to sound great because cheap imitations are just not acceptable.  Let's add to that the fact that I believe variety is truly the spice of life and it goes without saying that one of the color options must … [Read more...]

Introducing The New Beats By Dr. Dre In Neon Colors! #SeHablaMusica @Target #Ad

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Target. All opinions are 100% mine.     If you have a passion for music like I do, it goes with you wherever you go and you are never too far removed from your favorite tune or melody.  Having a great pair of headphones certainly guarantees that you always have your favorite playlists at your disposal, even if you are on-the-go.  However, in today's fashion conscious society, it's not enough to have headphones that sound great, you have to sport ones that look great too.    Beats by Dr. Dre has managed to create headphones that are light, sound great, can withstand a variety of conditions and, best of all, make you look great while you are wearing them.  They feature an adjustable headband, enhanced bass, and come in some fresh colors.  As if these headphones weren't great enough, they are now available in neon colors to bring out your trendy side.    I had the opportunity to check out the new Beats Neon by Dr. Dre at a … [Read more...]

Check Out My Tips For Discovering New Artists! #SeHablaMusica #Ad

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Target. All opinions are 100% mine.Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target.       I've always been a big music fan and I greatly enjoy listening to new artists so that I can support new talent and share great music with all of my friends and family.  Most of the time, radio and television stations only play popular music so we end up listening to the same artists and the same songs over and over.  Through the years, I've had to get a little creative in order to discover new artists and I'm so glad that thought outside the box because I've heard great music this way.    Believe it or not, television shows, and commercials are great resources for discovering new songs.  How many times have you heard a commercial jingle or the theme song to one of your favorite songs and wondered who the artist was singing it?  This has happened to me many times and it prompted me to conduct a little research in order … [Read more...]

Get Moving With My Latin Music Playlist! #SeHablaMusica

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Target. All opinions are 100% mine.Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target.     Last night, my family and I attended my nephew's first birthday party at my sister's house.  We all had a a great time talking, laughing, celebrating, and dancing.  As a matter of fact, one of the party games that my sister had planned for all the kids was a dance contest.  It was really a joy seeing my sons and nephews jamming to their favorite songs and spending family time together.     I can't recall any holiday or family event that we have had over the years that didn't include some kind of music and dancing.  It's almost as if the music is in our blood as Latinos and it moves us from within.  Basically, it's an extension of who we are and a large part of our culture and traditions.  Over the years, I have added a variety of songs to my Latin music playlist that move me and remind me of memorable events in my life.     When … [Read more...]
