Celebrando Our Latina Life with Vi and Va dolls (Review and Giveaway)

Disclosure: This is a compensated Campaign in Collaboration with Vi and Va Dolls and Latina Bloggers Connect. All Opinions are 100% honest and all mine. #ViandVa #Ad #LatinaBloggers



Excuse the Spanglish post title, pero yo soy una #LatinaBlogger! I am Latina. Up until I learned about these gorgeous dolls back in February it was difficult to get in touch with our Latin culture through dolls. I didn't want my child to grow up playing with dolls that are the most outrageous things they can be. I wanted Gabby to play with relatable dolls that would make her happy. That some time in the future would show her that it's OK to have curves... You don't HAVE to be skinny (There's nothing wrong with being skinny, but curves are great too). Meet Vi and Va along with their cousins, Roxxi and Felicia! Not only do I find them beautiful and realistic, but they celebrate 2 of greatest things in life: Family and friends!

Reminiscing on My Latina Life con Suavitel® #LongLastingScent

Is it just me or does the smell of freshly laundered clothes make you want to sing, dance, and dive in to piles of clean laundry nose first? My clothes have to smell like beautiful things each and every day since I'm always on the go. It's an added bonus when the scent of my clothes brings me back to my Latina roots! With that being said, it's no contest that Suavitel® Fabric conditioner and Suavitel® Fragrance Pearls™ are #1 in my household.

Express Your Love to Mom with a Charm Bracelet from SOUFEEL!

I've always been a big fan of charm bracelets. As a little girl, I was always adding charms to my link bracelet and then outgrew those vibrant charms. Being a low-income parent, I'm not one who can just easily afford a Pandora charm bracelet. I've always desired one, but found it to be truly outrageous to pay almost $100 for a charm! Collectors would be inclined to purchase Pandora and they do make lovely gifts, but I'm happy with this more affordable (Pandora Compatible) option! This Mother's Day, my Love of charm bracelets has been fulfilled with jewelry from SOUFEEL!

I LOVE living in NYC! It's mainly due to the fact that there are so many places to go. This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending an adorable Charm IT! / Crayola event with my daughter and niece. The Event was to encourage the children (ages 14 & under) to design and draw their very own one of a kind charm and enter it into the Charm IT! design contest.

Why we DITCHED Cable Television!



Let me start off by saying that I was once you. The person who couldn't "Live" without my cable TV shows on their air dates. On a cold & Wintery day, we opened our Mailbox to find our cable bill. My sister and I were splitting the costs, but this bill had a little extra surprise for us... A notice that the bill will be raised by $15-$20. It may not seem like much to many of you, but for this out of work mommy it sure was. Not only was ditching our cable bill going to save us more than $100 a month, but we could still get our favorite show fixes through Cheap monthly streaming services!
