This post is brought to you by our generous sponsor, Anthem Foundation.   As a child, I thought my familia/family was invincible. We enjoyed the outdoors, had weekly family gatherings and I often fell asleep watching them dancing and playing the guitar, conga, and tambourines late into the night. It was a care-free life. Yet, [...]

Green peppers, white peppers, lettuce, potatoes, picked from NYC rooftop garden Green peppers, white peppers, lettuce, potatoes, picked from NYC rooftop garden

Winter begins on December 21. We're already feeling the chill in the mornings and blustery winds throughout the day. According to weather forecasts,  soon we'll have snow and freezing temperatures in the central and eastern states.  If you're like me, staying indoors with a caramel latte and a good movie or book, seems much more appealing than braving [...]

Clear handbag raincoat protects handbag from the elements Clear handbag raincoat protects handbag from the elements

As much as I love shoes,  it dims in comparison to my love of handbags. I treasure them. They're not only functional, they're also stylish and maintain their resale value if taken care of properly.  Depending on the bag, it can be an investment passed down from generation to generation. I can still recall my first [...]

I grew up in a predominately Hispanic neighborhood in the South Bronx, one of the poorest boroughs in New York City. Our family did not always have access to fresh, healthy foods or safe places to play outside. Thankfully, our local community center stepped in to fill those needs. It was a lifeline. They allowed [...]

Newborn Baby in Hospital | Latina On a MIssion Newborn Baby in Hospital | Latina On a MIssion

A normal pregnancy typically last 40 weeks. For some, like me, a pregnancy can last longer. With my oldest, shown below, I was pregnant a little over 41 weeks. For other women, it can be shorter and here is where the danger lies. Babies born before 37 weeks face battles that full-term babies do not. [...]

This post is sponsored by Alcon. My padrasto/stepfather was a wonderful man. He was also a very independent and strong man. He took pride in the fact that he could provide for his family. As he got older, he started taking a back seat to others. It was subtle. If you didn’t know him, you [...]
