Get to Know Me


It's crazy how James is already 4 moths old, and it's also crazy how it's the end of October. I mean, next thing you know the year is over! Ugh.. seriously where does the time go?

I feel like over the past few months I've gained new readers and I wanted to share a few random facts about me just so you all can get to know me better.

New Moms Must Haves

Thee most frequently asked question in my inbox is "what products do you recommend for new moms?". There are of course many things I love to use on baby James like Mustela lotion and Burtsbees line of baby clothing. Since it’s almost impossible to name them all, I decided to categorize them and include them in different posts. Today’s post is all about New Moms Must Haves. These are items that I strongly recommend getting as it’s made my life so much easier.

You Inspire Me


In life, we sometimes find ourselves deep in despair. In the moment we think nothing can fix us, no one can make us feel better and for that time everything stands still.
This was my life for over 9 months. My entire pregnancy was a living nightmare. I felt every emotion imaginable. Not only was my pregnancy stressful but I also had many complications during and after delivery.

Learning Spanish with Canticos


This post is sponsored by Nick Jr.

Having two trilingual daughters was much harder back then then it is now. These days we have great educational programs to help us teach our kids a new language. 

After having baby James I'm basically starting all over again and I'm taking all the help I can possibly get. That’s why in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, I am so excited to be partnering with Nick Jr. in today’s post.

Nick Jr. has collaborated with Canticos, a collection of some of the most beloved Spanish-language nursery rhymes from all over the world. Canticos’ bilingual nursery rhymes are available on the free Nick Jr. appand Nick Jr. YouTube channel. This new engaging content has made my teachings to baby James a breeze. 

All of the nursery rhymes my mom and grandma sang to me when I was younger are available there in English and in Spanish. It's super nostalgic to relive these moments with my little boy and teach him my native language while I’m at it. As a working mom who’s always on the go, I love the convenience of carrying the app with me and listening to them at all times.

Canticos has definitely made play time a lot more fun.




James favorite tune is 'Little Chickies' and quite frankly it's my favorite too. Checkout my Instagram and watch him try to sing along.

Durante el fin de semana, mi familia y yo hicimos un viaje por carretera espontáneo que nos permitió comer barbacoa y recoger calabazas.
