I'm the Editorial Assistant at Mamás Latinas. I was born and raised in New York City and graduated from St. John's University as a Journalism and English major, where I was a staff writer for the school newspaper, The Torch, and an on-air host and producer for the school's television club, WRED-TV. I have interned at Parenting, Self, Big Apple Parent magazines, and I love everything fitness and nutrition and enjoy trying out new foods. I'm also a movie buff and a fan of the TV shows Breaking Bad, Modern Family, and Arrested Development

I know I'm Latina when... non-latino friends tell me I'm shouting, but in my head I'm speaking in my normal tone of voice.

SEE: Restaurant makes NSFW food shaped like naughty bits, no word on how they taste


You probably never thought you'd utter the words, "Waiter, there's a penis in my soup," but that's exactly what patrons at a Taiwanese restaurant are saying daily (I imagine!). The eatery called Funny Sex opened with the intention to combine two things everyone loves: food and sex. Diners can enjoy penis-shaped desserts among the many other provocatively designed objects and meals served at the eatery.

You would think that such a place would be great to get you in the mood, but instead it is more likely to tickle your funny bone when you see what's inside!

Teen strangles & decapitates her friend, but that's not the worst part


There are some crazy people out there--I can't ever quite comprehend how no one saw the warning signs when they break. Take for example this 15-year-old Japanese schoolgirl who killed her friend when she visited her apartment in the most gruesome way. The victim Aiwa Matsuko, who was also 15, was strangled, decapitated and had one of her hands chopped off by her deranged unnamed classmate.
