I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine!

Last but not least I’d like to thank my Latina Mom twice This past weekend saw the celebration of Mother’s Day. Sunday was a gloriously beautiful day in New York. Everywhere one turned you saw flowers, bird houses and pies on sale as part of the Mother’s […]
The helpfulness of swearing up a storm and using vibrating pills: This week’s weird news around the globe It’s another wacky week where oddities abound. However, it is mother’s day. A day where we celebrate the beauty of motherhood and the true love one has for […]
