Gift Ideas for the Cool Little Girls #JCPchallenge

Gift Ideas for the Cool Little Girls #JCPchallenge

This post is sponsored, thanks to JCPenney. All opinions and photos are my own. 

And just like that, my girls are grown. No longer are the days of picking out cute little matching outfits that I like. Now, all of a sudden and what seems like out of nowhere, my girls have opinions of their own and style preferences. The early tween age is pretty tricky, it’s a balance of them finding themselves while still guiding them to not make poor or inappropriate fashion decisions. JCPenney has so many great deals throughout the store. I was able to find an adorable dress, jeggings, a really cool top and stocking stuffers too!

Bring the Family Together this Thanksgiving with Disney's #PixarCOCO!

The anticipation was real when it came to Coco. From the moment we heard that Disney and Pixar were going to be taking on the traditional Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos. Personally, I could not wait to see how they were going to add their magical touch to an already beautiful Mexican tradition. Through all of the doubt and skepticism, Disney and Pixar came out on top and proved all of the doubters wrong. #PixarCOCO

Bring Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” Home Today!

Bring Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” Home Today!

Earlier in the year I talked about how much I LOVED Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3.” I'll be honest, the Cars movies have not been my favorites from Disney, until this one, I loved Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3.” I loved the inclusion of a strong female (Latina) character and the encouraging message. More importantly, my girls loved it. Just the other day my youngest asked when she could watch Cars 3 again and luckily for her, Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” has just been released on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD™ and DVD, Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD™ & Blu-ray™.

Make it a Movie Night #FrightAndDelight

Make it a Movie Night #FrightAndDelight

One of the best parts about my girls growing up is sharing with them things from my childhood. I love to tell them about the games I used to play, sing along to old songs and quote lines from my favorite movies. I feel like I've been waiting for them to be old enough to really appreciate the movies that I loved so much. So, this Halloween season I've been bringing out some of my favorites.  The time has finally come for them to be introduced to some of the classics and of course, the only way they can be properly introduced is with a movie night. #FrightAndDelight #CollectiveBias

How to Share Dia de los Muertos with your classmates

Growing up, Dia de los Muertos was a holiday that I was aware of, but it wasn't something that my family celebrated. I don't know why, I wish we had, because I think it's such a beautiful way to honor your family. As a Latina Mom, I am going to take this opportunity to teach my girls the truth behind the history and tradition.  #OfrendasConNestle #NestleKitchen #CollectiveBias
