As I planned for my baby’s birth, I wanted the very best of everything and I wanted it all! I, from the bottom of my heart, felt like I needed it all. I was all about the baby splurges! As her birth approached, I felt pressure to get everything I thought I needed to be prepared, but quickly realized how expensive having a baby can really be. So what do you need? What do you not actually purchase? What do you splurge on?
I recently read a brilliant, as-in-I-can’t-get-over-how-great-it-is, book, “Boobin’ All Day Boobin’ All Night”, by Meg Nagle, an Australia based International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. It was my very first Amazon Kindle purchase as I wanted an on-the-go version because I KNEW I would not be able to put this book down. I finished it in 2 days, and that’s while keeping up with a 13 month old!
Empowerment, Latinidad and Feminism are three terms that come to mind when I think of descriptive terms for A Latina Soiree. A strong and confident Latina is more than what the media wants us to identify with; we’re definitely more than curvy and sultry chicas or mamasitas! I have to note, I don’t directly identify as a Latina Feminist Blogger, but I definitely do relate with many of the topics and themes that these brilliant ladies share with their readers.
Have you been DYING to add the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette to your makeup collection like I have? Last weekend, I spotted Gwen Stefani lipsticks online and lost my mind searching for them and could not find where to buy them anywhere. This morning, I got an email that put a huge smile on my face….Urban Decay revealed their full Gwen Stefani collection, and it includes more than just lipsticks!
They’re here! They’re here!
The highly requested and anticipated Honest Company Overnight Diapers are here!
I am SUPER excited, can you tell??
I have already edited my bundle to ensure I receive a package of these on my next bundle shipment. Why? Because my LO sometimes has leaks at night, it happens! I’m hoping once I receive these and try them out it will protect my baby and our sheets!
If you follow me on social media, or know me personally, you KNOW how proud I am of my Latina American roots. I am a “Proud Peruvian” as I mention in my personal Twitter bio. When I thought about what I wanted my blog to be about, I knew I wanted to highlight my Hispanic background and all the wonderful features that come with it. I particularly wanted to celebrate Latin American women. We are strong, fierce, outspoken, loud, sassy and so much more! We’re truly a force to be reckoned with. That is how A Latina Soiree was born!
The Sephora Beauty Insider 2016 birthday gift has been revealed and I can’t wait until my birthday! This year, we get a choice for what birthday gift we prefer, which makes me very happy. Choice or not, the gifts are always fabulous and definitely on the list of must-haves. As my birthday is in December, I recently received my deluxe samples of Nars Velvet Matte and Satin Lip Pencils. I LOVE them and plan on getting the full sizes ASAP!
If you follow me on social media, you’ll quickly notice that it’s no secret that I LOVE my Moby Wrap; however, it was not an easy task to figure it out or to get my little one used to it. After a fellow mama on Instagram asked me for some tips, I was inspired. I’m sharing my very best tips and tricks to getting the best of your Moby Wrap, and also sharing a review on how I grew to love it!
Chicken broth was the very first thing I made my little Zoey when I started her baby food prep. I was given the idea by a family friend to make this broth from scratch, instead of just using water. I’m sharing a fairly basic and easy recipe with you, but feel free to add any other ingredients that you think would be super tasty for your little one.
That is exactly what I had to tell myself a second ago when I saw that Netflix had released a teaser for Fuller House. I am right back in the 90’s with my black spandex shorts, over-sized sweater and teased hair – the epic DJ Tanner look!
The big news is that they will launch all of the episodes on February 26th, 2016, so mark your calendars! We all know what I will be doing on that day… #NetflixAndChill (literally!).
