I'm always so offended whenever someone tells me I don't dress like the "typical Latina woman." What exactly does that mean anyway? I've been told I'm stylish but modest. It's true, you won't catch me dead in a deep plunge dress or a bandage number so short it hits slightly below my ass. But still, I almost want to tell the person throwing me the backwards compliments that Latinas don't actually dress this way. But once the holiday parties start to ring in you'd be surprised what some chicas will show up in!
If you can cook from scratch all the time or do everything the hard way then good for you and everyone who gets to eat your phenomenal food. That's awesome, but most of us don't have the time to do everything without using a few shortcuts and, you know what, it's TOTALLY okay. Shortcuts can take the form of dishes being semi-homemade, making some things ahead of time or even just knowing the fastest most efficient way to get something done in the kitchen. I've put together an awesome list of Latin food cheats so that your time in the kitchen is less stressful, but your efforts still yield unbelievably delicious results because shortcuts are good, but not when when they short you on flavor.
Listen up chica, it's perfectly normal for your va-jay-jay to have some sort of smell. Don't expect it to smell like flowers, though! Every woman experiences feminine odor and your daily activities and diet could play a huge part. Like, after a serious gym session or if you eat lots of onions, garlic and asparagus. But believe me, there's a BIG difference between a natural vagina smell and a smell that could be indicating you have an infection. The trick is to know the difference!
Do you enjoy receiving a flurry of holiday cards, but hate the cluttered mess they create? Consider making them a part of your holiday décor! Holiday card displays are as easy to make as they are fun to create--especially if you're crafting them with your very own little helpers.
I've never been much of a ponytail girl. I'd normally reserve them for bad-hair days or working out at the gym. But lately I've been noticing more and more celebs bringing back the retro style. And I'm not talking about the boring, plain-Jane ponies we all grew up wearing. These ponytails are sleek, sexy and perfect for a day at the office or a night out on the town. I've never seen so much ponytail praise in my life but you know what? I'm all about it!
I had my first child in 2008 and I swear I've been breastfeeding ever since then, okay maybe not that long, but long, because I had another child in 2011 and breastfed her for a very long time too. I tell you this because the entire time I nursed, I stopped wearing necklaces. Now, that my nursing days are behind me I'm CRAZY about necklaces and I'm thrilled that statement necklaces are still going strong. Not only are they going strong, but you can get great ones at VERY reasonable prices.
"I don't like getting off," said no woman ever. Having orgasm-less sex is a lot like eating cake without frosting or having ice cream without whipped cream or a cherry on top; it's good, but you know it could be a lot better. Don't get me wrong. I'm not bashing O-less sex. Sex builds intimacy, whether or not you get off. But toe-curling, mind-bending sex feels good AND it can even keep the blues at bay. So, what's the deal? Why aren't more of us reaping these sexy benefits?
Oh my Díos I just came across the story of a woman who supposedly let her teething baby chew on cigarette stubs. What kind of idiocy is that? Shelby Henrickson of Phoenix, Arizona had given her 10-month-old child an adult only sleep medication (another pendeja move), the poor baby had to be rushed to intensive care where it was found that not only had the baby been given adult-sleeping medication, he also had nicotine poisoning. A doctor who examined the child said the child was teething and appeared to have been chewing on cigarette butts. So wrong! Let's go over some better teething options, shall we?
If there's one beauty product I can't live without is lip balm. In fact, I have a pretty chronic case of chapped lips. Embarrassing--I know! But before you get all grossed out and judge-y, I'd like to let you in on a little something' something.' As dry-prone as my pout may be, not a soul can tell. Why? Well, because I apply lip balm like it's my job--no joke! Before my lips even have a second to absorb the formula I'm already reapplying. Oh, and that's not the only place where I apply it. This beauty basic soothes and smooths a lot more of my body parts if you catch my drift. Get your mind out of the gutter and find out what I mean!
The fashion looks at the 2014 Latin Grammy Awards last night was all about bold rich colors, sheer nudes, metallics and sequin gowns. With the backdrop being the MGM Hotel, many of the styles embodied the sexiness and playfulness of Las Vegas. While some estrellas nailed their looks with perfection, others shocked us with less than fortunate looking gowns. I was on the scene spotting all of the fashion fails and mishaps of the evening.
