Baby Juliza: Month 9

Wasn't I just pregnant? Like yesterday or something? I was, right? And yet somehow, the child who was in my belly is now a 9-month-old crawling, standing, biting machine! My hubby and I thought this photo was the most accurate representation of how mischievous she is these days. And here's another to show how increasingly difficult it is to get [...]

Outfits: Synergy Organic Plus Size Collection

Synergy Organic Clothing shot to the top of my list of favorite fashion brands months ago when I first tried a couple of their dresses, but my love grew stronger than ever when they introduced their new plus size collection. They sent me a few pieces to try, and I couldn't wait to see what they had in store. I'm [...]

It’s Game Time! DIY Pom Poms in Your Team Colors

It's that time of year again. The time when so many of us spend Thursday, and Sunday AND Monday nights glued to the TV screen. It's football time! I admit, I'm not the fan in my house. But my hubby goes so hard for the Pittsburgh Steelers that I swear he bleeds black and yellow. Which means that he loves [...]

Recipe: Puerto Rican Arroz con Pollo

September is Hispanic Heritage Month, and while I don't mention it often here, I actually do have Hispanic heritage. My mother is Puerto Rican and bilingual. Unfortunately, neither I nor any of my sisters speak fluent Spanish (or much of it at all, really), but mommy did pass her heritage down to us in other ways. My favorite way? The [...]

A New Way to Banish Tooth Sensitivity Thumbnail

A New Way to Banish Tooth Sensitivity

I've had sensitive teeth for most of my adult life, and I genuinely do not enjoy it. This sensitivity can turn a simple ice cream or accidentally grinding my teeth together into torture. Not cool. So when Walmart offered me the opportunity to try a new product designed to reduce tooth sensitivity for up to a month at a time, [...]

One of the biggest perks of being a Walmart Mom blogger is that I a frequently able to share my feedback about what I think they are doing right — and wrong — on both a local and national level. As a consumer, I would love to be able to do this for every store where I shop, and know that [...]

Fight Hunger, Spark Change with a vote

I like to think that most of us, if given the chance, like to help others whenever we can. Sometimes, that means giving of our time or money directly, but sometimes, we can't do that. That doesn't change the fact that there are people who need help. And Walmart is offering a way for all of us to help with [...]

Looking for Stylish, Affordable Maternity Clothes? Check Out Great Expectations Thumbnail

Looking for Stylish, Affordable Maternity Clothes? Check Out Great Expectations

Last winter when I was pregnant, getting dressed was a challenge, to say the least. Given that baby Juliza was due in January, I really didn't want to purchase a bunch of winter maternity clothes to use them for two and a half months. Especially because maternity clothes tend to be really pricey.  REALLY pricey. It's really hard to justify [...]

Celebrate Fall with a DIY Floral Headband Thumbnail

Celebrate Fall with a DIY Floral Headband

Fall is absolutely my favorite season, in part because of the relief from scorching hot weather and the opportunity to transition my wardrobe, but also because of the colors. Growing up in the Virgin Islands, I never got to experience the change of seasons and the beautiful hues that come with it. Don't get me wrong — there's something awesome [...]

Heels from Rockport that are Genuinely Comfortable Thumbnail

Heels from Rockport that are Genuinely Comfortable

Anyone who knows me knows that I generally try to avoid wearing heels. Sure, I have a couple of pairs in my closet, but I tend to break them out only for special occasions — usually ones that involve a lot of sitting. It's not that I don't like heels. On the contrary, I love them. Well, I love looking at [...]
