The work of Pixar is truly magic. From Finding Dory to Monsters Inc., Disney Pixar and their talented team of animators and story writers have brought brilliant tales to life. In 2017, they are bringing Coco to the big screen, as well as smiles to everyone that sees it. Why is Coco so outstanding? Keep reading and find out why this movie is unlike any other than Pixar has done.
Whether you’re a parent raising a little one that has been diagnosed with autism, trying your best to teach your children about inclusion, or are an advocate for such topics, this is huge news!

Being a mom makes it quite impossible for me to stay up as late as ever to watch the full Oscars. If you’re a fellow mama, or just a busy bee, you’re in luck as I’ve done the work for you and compiled the best of the 2017 Oscars. Enjoy!
In case you didn’t know, I LOVE movies. I love comedies, dramas, international and so many more genres. When my husband and I were at the dating stage, I had never collected so many Cineplex Scene points, as it was our go-to date choice. Even today, we tend to go to the movies on our date night as I have a major thing for movie theatre popcorn too. I always look forward to seeing the new trailer, and 2017 is no different. It’s only January and I’ve already compiled a list of must-see movies to be released in the next few months.
I run into super fun, funny and creative things online and sometimes I don’t get around to watching a whole YouTube video, or reading a full article. As a mama on the go, sometimes I wish I had a go-to spot where I could quickly look through interesting and informational items for the week, or the month, without having to browse absolutely everything. This is how I came up with “The Internet in a Blog Post”. Maybe this can be your go-to source for a quick recap of outstanding items found on the internet that are truly worth a watch or read.
The rights of girls and women around the world is a theme that is very close to my heart; I picked up interest on this from a very young age. That’s why news like the newest Sesame Street puppet, Zari, make me VERY happy! She is joining Sesame Street in Afghanistan via Baghch-e-SimSim, the local Afghan co-production, for Season 5.
When I hear these 90’s songs, they bring me back. They bring me right back to the little girl that loved to sing and dance in the living room of my home back in Peru, or the sassy girl that immigrated to Canada and tried so hard to hang on to any aspect of her Latinidad that she could. When I though about writing this post and began compiling the songs, it was SO hard to pick which ones to include. I spent quite a bit of time reminiscing and singing along; as well as laughing at all the cheesiness of all these videos!
For the very first time, there are 3 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 covers. Normally, I wouldn’t bat an eye at this, but this year is particularly special as the covers are a showcase of the diversity in women’s bodies. This is a big step forward as most covers we see in newsstands, particularly when they feature models in bathing suits, only highlight a very particular body type. The celebration of various body shapes that the SI Swimsuits 2016 covers have featured is something I would love to see more of in the future. It’s empowering!
I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS SHOW!
Remember when I shared the Fuller House Teaser in December? Well, here’s the Fuller House Trailer! There is no doubt that on February 26th I will be completely unavailable as I will be binge watching Fuller House along with my hubby and Zoey.
Yes, I said it. The Elle Canada March 2016 cover is truly Canadian; and I am loving every bit of it! The March 2016 special issue, titled “Meet The New Wave”, blew up on my social media feeds this morning; and as I was about to post it on Instagram, I realized that it deserved its very own post. The upcoming issue includes exclusive interviews with three young, and very well known, Canadian women who are not only stunning but so incredibly talented!
