I'm the Assistant Managing Editor at Mamás Latinas and I'm a new mamá! I was born in Medellín, Colombia and came to the U.S. when I was 7 years old. These days, I'm immersed in all things baby, including 5 how-to books I'm trying to read simultaneously, but you'll usually find me reading every magazine imaginable and trying to catch up with my DVR. I was previously the Managing Editor for Latina magazine, where I worked for almost 12 years. I live in the N.Y.C. area with my amazing husband and our son, who is almost a toddler and getting more active every day...I know I'm Latina when...
I speak in English to my son, and then immediately tell him the same thing in Spanish.

Scandal tonight was not as crazy as it's been in the past, but this second episode of the third season's spring segment, "We Do Not Touch the First Ladies," left me wanting MORE and of course dropped the obligatory bomb at the end. From the title you know that it's going to center around Mellie, which I have NO problem with, I love the First Lady (played brilliantly by actress Bellamy Young). Oh but the best was the showdown with Olivia, who honestly is getting on my last nerve. Argh!
It's back! Scandal and the Gladiators are back for their last six episodes of the season with tonight's spring premiere. "Ride, Sally, Ride" had huge expectations after leaving us hanging back in early December (OMG it's been almost three months!). I was wondering what kind of show would return in the spring. Could it top the crazy off-the-cliff antics of the winter finale and the episodes leading up to it? Would it try to get a little bit more on its past track and out of the ridiculous telenovela track? I have to say, although, yes, it did get back to its roots a bit, it didn't disappoint. Oh and one HUGE bomb was dropped and I LOVED it. But the episode's main focus was to show us how Oliva's world is coming apart even more now. Here's how…
Did you ever have a glass (or sip) of wine while you were pregnant? What if I told you that could soon land you in jail? Well it very well could when a court in the U.K. rules on a landmark case that will be heard soon that aims to make it a crime to have even a little alcohol while pregnant. The court will hear testimony to prove that a 6-year-old girl was the victim of a crime because she is now brain damaged after her mom drank alcohol while she was pregnant, so the little girl suffers from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and its devastating effects. As someone who is pregnant right now, I'm not sure how I feel about this.Continue Reading >
The Grammys are supposed to be one of the edgier awards shows of awards season, but this year's disappointed in more ways than one. From the lame-ish Grammy Red Carpet dresses (gold, beige, the occasional red) to the performances, I have to confess that it was hard to stay up and watch 3.5 hours of this.
But it is a big night, so we watched! I was also waiting for Bruno Mars to win his multiple Grammys--he was nominated for six! So how did he make out? Well … read on.
As always, even more fun than the actual awards shows, in tonight's case the Grammys, is the Red Carpet! And as always also, our stars absolutely shined! From Gloria Estefan looking classic and perfect to newcomer Desiree Estrada, who looked amazing in gold and white, it was a treat to see our stars rocking the carpet. Shiny, full-length gowns rocked the night (even pregnant Ciara wore a beautiful gold beaded gown, belly bump and all!), and of course Madonna broke the mold in a black tuxedo and grill ... which were a little out there, but hey. This year, the fashion wasn't as out there as we've come to expect from the Grammys. But I personally LOVED the glitter of the Red Carpet.Continue Reading >
