I am a NYC-based journalist, food writer and digital media expert. I love pop culture, red lipstick and discovering new places. When I'm not at the farmer's market or blogging about my 100 pound weight loss on HealthyLatinFood.com, you can often find me trying to make this whole "sexy cat lady" thing happen.

I know I'm Latina when...

I wear bright, vibrant colors in any season, for any occasion. Oh, and lots of animal print!
