5 Eyeliners and a Gloss

Say Bye to Sag & Hello to SWAG

August 28, 2015

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with DiMe Media and Pampers.  All opinions are 100% mine.

I know that parents always see their children as being special but in all seriousness my son has a lot of swag. He has great style that incorporates our heritage (both Latino and Asian) with a dash of his own personal style. He is a music lover, a great dancer, and he is always ready to laugh and dance. The dancing gene comes from his dad (who is a great dancer)  and the style I like to think comes from me. Between his dad and I, we made a little dude who is always looking to be the life of the party, and if you're not ready to party he's not going to be your friend. I'm not sure what that is going to mean for us as he gets older, but I know for sure that he's going to always lead an exciting life.  I'm going to really prepare myself for when he becomes a teen because I already know there will be many gray hairs to come. 


It's one thing for my son to have "swag" and another for his to "sag". We are not fans of the saggy diaper, that would totally ruin his style. The new Pampers Cruisers diapers feature three Extra Absorb Channels that help little ones stay drier and do not sag like ordinary diapers* – helping babies go from sag to swag. While a poor fitting or saggy diaper can limit babies’ freedom of movement, new Pampers Cruisers have three channels in the core of the diaper that help distribute wetness evenly and prevent diaper sag, helping babies move without restriction.

A Little #TangleTalk With Anthony

August 27, 2015

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Johnson’s® and Latina Bloggers Connect, however all opinions are my own. 

Good hair days make everyone happy, including toddlers. Anthony is the only in our family with his type of hair which makes him self conscious about it. You might not believe it because he is so small, but when his hair starts growing and it gets to that point where it gets puffy, he tells us that it's time for hair-cut. And he loves getting his hair cut, he must be one of the few kids in the world who does. I personally think it's cool that at his age he worries about his hair and how he's dressed, especially since he is best friends with Julius the king of style. Both of these boys are a new breed of kids, they are going to grow up taking care of their appearance and putting the rest of us to shame with their cool styles and fashion forward thinking. 


A good hair day begins with JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES in the bath. These are the same products all of the older children use, including Sam with her thin, long hair and Lene with her tight curls. After use everyone's hair is soft and tangle-free, it also smells great. 


The JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES line frees you from having to worry about tangles and lets the kids have their cool styles with no pulling or tugging. 


Tangles and bad hair days?! We ain't got time for that! Shoot, we're busy being all cute and stuff. 


Today is another good hair day for Anthony. He doesn't go to school yet so nobody gets to enjoy his cool hair yet, but next year is going to be another story. He can't wait to rock his do with other kids his age. Until then he'll just hang out at home and be a cool dude.

As a busy mom and student with a job, I am not big on cooking big meals. Who has the time to make a full course meal when you have to be out of the house by 7:00am? I am lucky if I get 20 minutes in the kitchen to give Julius some cereal and juice and grab a little something for myself. But I do try to make time for at least those 20 minutes because leaving without eating can end up being the worst decision of my day. This is why I am such a fan of easy-to-prepare items. Today I am going to share with you how to make a a yummy, crunchy yogurt treat in a jiffy by using the NEW Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt CupsReal Medleys is a delicious blend of yogurt and multigrain granola with real fruit and crunchy nuts. Have you seen these at your store? These just hit the shelves at my local Walmart and I had to grab a few to try out and so far I love the many combinations I can make. 

Quaker Real Medley's Yogurt Cups take convenience to the next level because they don't require any heating/cooking time at all. Simply stir in cold milk to your Quaker Real Medley's Yogurt Cup and let it sit for 2 minutes and you have a yogurt-like treat that is ready to be enjoyed as is OR to be topped with all kinds of yummies. I am such a fan of anything that you can put toppings on so I love to prepare a little toppings bar and add a little bit of everything to my cup. The more the merrier, I always say. 


Let's make one of these up together ok? 



Take your Quaker Real Medley's Yogurt Cup and stir in cold milk to the marked line and stir gently. 


Now just let it sit for two minutes, and as you wait you can see how it transforms into a tasty yogurt texture complete with almonds, strawberries and so much granola. 


Once the yogurt has set completely I start to add the toppings. Today we begin with strawberries which I found on sale and got enough to last me all week. I love having fresh fruit around because I can add it to so many of my meals, like this one. 


Next I add some shredded coconut, I picked this up because my sister Jack is coming over and she loves coconut. I love the sweetness this added to my yogurt cup and I am enjoying it now before she gets here and eats the entire bag. 



Bananas! I add a lot of bananas, maybe that's why they call me Munkey.


Oh HELLO! Can you say YUMMY? That quickly we have created a yogurt dream with  Quaker Real Medley's Yogurt Cups and toppings your probably already have in your pantry. Now we are ready to enjoy before heading out the door for the day, or to sit down and actually enjoy after a long day. 


These easy to prep Quaker Real Medley's Yogurt Cups make it so easy to eat something delicious and I don't spend a lot of time preparing it so I can take that time and watch some Netflix or enjoying some YouTube. 




You will find this product in either the cold or ready-to-eat cereal aisles not in the hot cereal section. You can also download the Blippar app from your Apple or Android store to scan your package and receive information tutorials on Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt Cups.
