I'm a Staff Writer at MamásLatinas. I am a native New Yorker who graduated from NYU as a Journalism and English major in 2011. Throughout my undergrad career, I contributed regularly to NYU's paper, Washington Square News, and held internships at the Long Island Press, amNewYork, The New York Times Local: East Village, and Seventeen Magazine. A self-professed literature nerd and news junkie, I love to relax by reading magazines, newspapers, and books while sipping iced caramel macchiatos. I am addicted to shoes, coffee, yoga and all things John Hughes.I know I'm Latina when...
I could literally eat beans with or for every meal, with no problem whatsoever.

I think it's safe to say that everyone enjoys a good orgasm, whether it occurs with a partner or while on your own. But how far are you willing to go to make your climaxes the best they can be? Apparently, some ladies are so eager to achieve a scream worthy big-O that they're undergoing a new scary-sounding procedure called the O-Shot, a vaginal injection that promises to regenerate healthy tissue and claims to cause stronger orgasms.
OK, orgasms are great and all, but I feel like this is going a little too far.Continue Reading >
A tech-savvy 2-year-old recently came to his mother's rescue after she was attacked by a dog last week. How?! By using FaceTime to call a family friend on her smartphone! Wow, that's one quick-thinking toddler!
Apparently, Laura Toone was taking a walk when a foster canine she was caring for attacked one of her own dogs. She tried pulling them apart, but the dog almost bit her finger off, causing her to start bleeding severely. Though she begged her 4-year-old daughters to call 911, the two girls were too shocked by the sign of their mom's blood to move. That's when her younger child, Bentley, sprang into action.Continue Reading >
Few things are cuter than watching little kids dance to their favorite tunes. That's why I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I saw the video of these three young kids having a dance party to some EDM in the backseat of the car. One even wakes up out of what seemed like a sound sleep to join in the fun!
As can be seen in the hilarious clip below, two of the kids start dancing in their seats as soon as the music starts playing. But my favorite part is when the youngest of the trio, who appeared to be sound asleep in her carseat, wakes up and immediately starts wildly bouncing around too, without even a second thought. Looks like all these kids can't help themselves around a good beat! Haha, how cute is that?! Watching them, it's pretty much impossible not to smile.
And they're not the only ones with impressive moves! Check them out below, along with five other babies who were clearly born to dance:Continue Reading >
When Indiana mom Mandy Batchelor was rushed to the hospital with severe abdominal pain late last month, she thought she was suffering from appendicitis and would have to undergo emergency surgery. So imagine her surprise when she found out she was actually pregnant and about to give birth to a baby!
Apparently, Batchelor, already a mom of two, had showed no signs of pregnancy this time around, other than lower back pain (which she attributed to standing at work all day) and what she thought was "normal winter weight gain." In fact, on the day she went into labor, she had just worked an eight-hour shift on her feet at the factory where she and her boyfriend, Josh Cox, work! Clearly, she had no idea what was coming…Continue Reading >
Is Shakira about to be a bride?! The singer posted this photo of herself in a full-length, beautiful wedding gown on social media yesterday, leaving many of her fans to wonder if she's dropping a not-so-subtle hint about potential upcoming nuptials. While the 37-year-old has recently opened about her plans to marry boyfriend Gerard Piqué eventually, it seemed as if the two in no hurry to tie the knot. So could she have really changed her mind and decided to speed up the process?!Continue Reading >
