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. [...]

Going for a forest walk with his daughter | Latina On a Mission Going for a forest walk with his daughter | Latina On a Mission

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 [...]

Over the years, I've learned the value of an outfit. A great cut, style and fit will make you stand taller. It may cost more then what you would purchase at Forever 21, but you will wear the piece for much longer.  Also, for the love of all things stylish, resist the urge to shop at Forever [...]

We're almost three weeks into the New Year and I have finally discovered my word: THRIVE. Without going into details about 2016, because who really wants to relive that year, I can say with absolute certainty that 2017 will be a year of change.

Parranda / Caroling in the City! |Latina On a Mission, New York, NY Blogger Parranda / Caroling in the City! |Latina On a Mission, New York, NY Blogger

Growing up in Puerto Rico meant that I was able to enjoy, and participate, in parrandas during the holidays. It was one of the highlights of the holidays for me! Parrandas are the Spanish equivalent of caroling in the United States. It’s fun, family oriented fun. And I’m always down for family oriented fun. It’s [...]
