DINNER IDEAS: ARROZ VERDE

I am so excited to share my very first video recipe on my YouTube channel. You guys have asked for it over and over and I am so happy to oblige. I wanted to make sure my first recipe was a simple but delicious one so I made sure to make my famous Arroz Verde for you guys. I cooked this exquisite rice on Easter and it came out so good, everyone loved it. It's such a simple way of spicing up your average everyday white rice and such a fun way to get your guests talking. I definitely recommend you try it. It's so good and different, which I love. White and yellow rice gets boring from time to time. So next time you need a dinner idea, try this one and let me know how it goes!
If you guys enjoy these kind of posts and/or videos please let me know in the comments, I truly love to hear from you guys and like to share what you enjoy most on here and on my YouTube channel.
Stay tuned for more very soon but please bear with me as I am trying to figure out the best way to film my cooking recipes. Thanks for the love so far on this video.

HOW TO GET RID OF DARK SPOTS

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Conffianz and Latina Bloggers Connect. As always, all opinions are my own. 
I've always been into taking care of my skin... thanks mom for instilling that in me at a very young age. And now that I am in my 30's, I find myself obsessed about taking care of my skin in every which way I can.  Let's face it, age is nothing but a number but... we must take care of it to conserve it too! So here is where I am sharing one of the latest beauty products I love.

EASTER HOME DECOR IDEAS

This post is sponsored by Kohl's and Latina Bloggers Connect. As always, all opinions are my own.
Whether you celebrate Easter or not, I believe it's safe to say that redecorating our homes for a new season or holiday feels like a breath of fresh air. And now that I have kids I love love love (as you guys have seen on my Instagram) to decorate my home for pretty much every single holiday. I love sharing ideas on home decor with you guys and I see that you guys truly enjoy seeing bits and pieces of my home. I promise I will be doing a home tour as soon as I feel like the house is ready:) 
For today's post, I teamed up with Kohl's to share how I get ready for Easter, as I welcome my family

HOW TO GET BABY TO SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT WITH JOHNSON'S BABY

If you follow me on Instagram you know I attended the Johnson's Baby Tonight We Sleep event in Manhattan a couple of weeks ago. And right after that event I told you guys I would be sharing tips and ideas on how to get your baby to sleep better through the night. And so many of you were so interested in what the tips would be. During that event we had a panel of experts share tips and facts

SLEEVELESS COATS FOR SPRING

Happy first day of Spring! 
I have been obsessing over this sleeveless coat for the passed week. I refuse to wear any more coats. I love that you can wear these so many ways and styles. Dress them up or down. This time I wore this casual look for a little shopping spree for a campaign I have coming up this week. I headed out shopping with Emme so I knew I had to be comfortable. I usually wear this with a sweater or long sleeve cotton top but this time I decided to do a button up and I love the way

THE PERFECT BEACH WAVES | TIPS

While hanging out at the Dove suite during my stay at We All Grow Summit, I was lucky enough to get my hair done by Amber, one of the hair style experts. I explained to her that I would love to be able to do my hair how she was doing it and she was gracious enough to give me some great tips which I want to share with you guys! This was a super impromptu video and I hope you enjoy it.

VASELINE x GIGI NEW YORK

Happy Friday! 
The weather is getting warmer and personally I am just happy I don't have to wear a coat or even a jacket anymore. So you will pretty much see me in this little get-up on a daily basis. Black leggings, a cute sweater and a chic and super functional tote are my go-to #ootd for running errands and hanging out with my kids. Nothing like being comfortable but still a little stylish. I love long days spent

WE ALL GROW DIARY | DAY TWO

I am so happy you all enjoyed my first day recap of my We All Grow Summit experience. Today I wanted to share day numero dos. I didn't want to post everything all in one post so that it's not overwhelming and that it is easy to read and take all in without missing a thing. So let's get started!
After that amazing trip to Catalina on day one, I was super charged and ready to take on day two.

WHITE LACE MIDI DRESS

So yesterday, you read all about DAY ONE of my travel diary from my trip to California, where I attended We All Grow Summit. And today I wanted to mix it up a little bit and share what I wore on day dos... so for today's post I am sharing an outfit of the day. I love, love, loved this dress from the moment I saw it at Lulu's. It's timeless and classic and simply all around perfection. The midi was perfect for my first full day of sessions and keynote panels at WAG. I paired this dress with these amazing blush-pink-caged-heeled sandals (say that 5x fast!) and they were the most comfortable heels ever! So much so that

WE ALL GROW DIARY | DAY ONE

I honestly don't know where to begin to describe the last few days I just spent in California. As you may already know (hello! Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!) I attended the amazing We All Grow Summit in Long Beach, California. It was the first time I traveled without my kids and to be honest, it was a very difficult but very necessary decision I knew I had to make. And let me tell you, it was all worth it. I was so nervous leaving them, but they stayed with the two people I trust the most in the world; my mom and my husband. So I knew they would be in great hands. So off I went... I didn't know much of what to expect, I just knew I had to be there. See, We All Grow is a

VICKS VAPORUB | #VAPOLOVE

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Vicks VapoRub and Latina Bloggers Connect. As always all opinions are my own.
For as long as I can remember my mom, just like every other Hispanic mother, has been telling me to use Vicks Vaporub or "Vivaporu" for every ache and pain. From when I was a little kids to now... I am 31 years old. And to be honest, these are those sweet warm memories I cherish. I clearly remember my mom using Vicks for her headaches... for my gripes, for my bruises... and for a zillion other illnesses. And now that I am a mom I find myself doing the same with my 4 year old (can be used on kids 2 years and up). I trust Vicks more than anything in the world, something that has been instilled in my for as long as
