Cinco De Mayo: You’re Probably Doing It Wrong

 

Cinco De Mayo party and celebrations.

I don’t make of a big deal about Cinco De Mayo. You may be thinking, “Why the hell not?” It’s the perfect reason to have a margarita or drink tequila! You can wear a sombrero and make tacos!…Exactly.

My Favourite Places in Lima, Peru

#APeruvianSoiree

A few weeks ago, I got back from Lima, Peru…. Oh, how I love that city! There is nothing like the food, the pacific ocean breeze, the sunshine and so much more. Even though I was born there, when I go to Lima I am a tourist in my own home. I moved to Canada when I was 7 so there is so much that I don’t remember about Lima (or so much I don’t know from how far it has developed), but my family and childhood memories keep my ties so incredibly close to the city. Since I visit Lima frequently, it is my pleasure to share my fave places to visit in Lima, Peru, as well as give you an insider’s look into the city and all it has to offer.

Powerful Ad Encourages Partners To #ShareTheLoad

Ariel India Ad - #ShareTheLoad

BBDO India has won a Glass Lion for the ad I’m about to show you at the 2015’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. If you ask me, the award was more than well deserved. The message of this ad, for the Ariel brand (P&G India), is one that I think about all the time. The situation behind the powerful ad is not one that may be common in Indian culture, but in Latin American culture as well.
