Coupon Mamacita & Stem Latina to Host Latinos in STEM & Spare Parts Twitter Party #SprintSTEM

Disclosure: This post is brought to you Latina Mom Bloggers and Sprint Latino. All opinions are 100% my own.

It’s no secret my daughter, Stem Latina,is a Stem fanatic! Science projects and classroom experiments are often the first opportunity that our children have to participate in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) related activities. But how can we encourage them to take a real interest in these subjects and to understand all of the opportunities that a STEM related career can provide? On January 16th Spare Parts will hit theaters nationwide. Spare Parts is based on a true story of four Latino students and their teacher on their quest for a shot at a national robotics contest. This inspirational film will offer parents and teachers a wonderful and engaging way to help get our kids talking about education.

Shiny Hair with Suave Moroccan Infusion Shine Products + WIN $100 BJ’s Wholesale Club Gift Card

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Lunchbox. All opinions are 100% my own.

Suave

Suave is a brand that I have trusted for years to provide my family with quality hair products for less. Lately, I am increasingly impressed with their Suave Moroccan Infusion Shine Products but especially with the Shampoo & Conditioner System. It is infused with authentic Moroccan argan oil and salon-proven to add shine, and best of all, my local BJ’s carries it!

Before starting to use Suave® Moroccan Infusion Shine Shampoo & Conditioner, I had never heard of Argan Oil before, so I conducted a little research into the oil, tree, fruit, and the extraction process. I learned:

1) Argan oil has traditionally been used to treat skin diseases, acne, and to nourish hair;

2) So many great uses for all parts of the fruit so nothing is wasted during extraction; and

3) Important: Seeing the increase in demand for argan products over the past seven years, the Moroccan government is working to ensure their valuable resource is sustainable.

After conducting my research on argan oil, I am convinced Suave has stumbled upon genius! Those of us who are bottle blonds know that blond hair can come with a big price – damage! With Suave® Moroccan Infusion Shine Shampoo & Conditioner there is a difference you can immediately feel the day you use the System, even on damaged hair. It reminds me of that healthy feeling you get just after you receive a conditioning treatment at the salon – your hair is silky smooth, no frizz, and feels like a cool blanket of satin falling across your arms. I love it! It makes me want to run my fingers through my hair all the time!

Since using Suave’s Moroccan System that winter itchy scaly scalp feeling has gone away. My hair also has retained less knots and now requires less frequent brushing. I highly recommend it to those who need a little healthy boost back into their hair (without the hefty salon price).  Give Suave® Moroccan Infusion Shine Shampoo & Conditioner a try today to see for yourself.

Luvs Diapers offers Leak-Free Diaper Holiday with Baby! Enter Giveaway #LuvsLeakFreeHoliday

Disclaimer: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Luvs. All opinions are 100% mine.

Luvs Diapers #LuvsLeakFreeHoliday

As mothers, we all know that absorbency is KEY when choosing diapers, right? Sometimes, being in a hurry to save a few bucks, we choose the wrong ones, which brings me to a cute funny story. Last week, I noticed one of my friends online rather early in the morning and wondered WHAT she was doing up since she is not known for being a morning person. It so happens that all three of her youngest children woke up with a diaper leak or an accident at the same time! With Luvs diapers that would have been avoided.  Leaks can disrupt even the most routine baby’s sleep schedule during the holidays.  Keeping baby leak-free through the night will make for a merrier morning.

I couldn’t imagine the chaos, but after she told me, I couldn’t help but laugh at the thought:

Oh my gosh! [Baby] woke up completely soaked so I had to get him a diaper and change my clothes because he peed all over me. While I was trying to get him settled back down [Baby Girl] woke up with a soaked diaper and wanted changing. While she was kicking and screaming she peed on my hands and the diaper I was putting on her. I tossed that diaper aside, washed my hands, and went on a search for another diaper for her. I left her without anything because SURELY she has peed enough… right? Wrong! When I came back with the new diaper, she had peed all over my blanket. I pulled that blanket out, tossed it in the washer, and finally got a new diaper on her. Moments later [My 4 yr old] came running in saying he peed in the bed! All I could think is “This can’t be happening! Seriously?! Ughhhh!”

Luvs Diapers offers Leak-Free Diaper Holiday

Maybe she should have been using Luvs diapers? Luvs Leak Barrier Leg Gathers ensure leaks are kept away from clothing (and those cute holiday outfits) and in the diaper – where they belong! Luvs is so sure their diaper won’t leak, they have released a short video series showing little ones sitting on valuable objects. Have you checked out Luvs adorable “Will It Leak” video series yet? Well, tis’ the season of holiday miracles! And this year, Luvs is turning clicks into diapers. From December 9th – 25th, for every view their Will It Leak “Santa Suit” video receives on their social media channels, Luvs will give diapers to children in need through the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Aren’t those videos adorable? Be sure to share their Santa Suit video so you can help earn diapers for the Children’s Miracle Network!

More Holiday Fun with Luvs:

The holiday fun doesn’t stop with those adorable videos! This holiday, Luvs is also inviting parents to whip up a baby book for their child in a few quick clicks with Luvs and Tweekaboo. These cute books can be created in minutes and even capture the comments from your friends and family from your social media pages! Get yours HERE and lets make this season a leak-free diaper holiday with baby.

The NEW Britax Car Seats are Here! WIN ONE! #BabySafeConBritax

The NEW Britax Infant Car Seats are Here! WIN ONE! #BabySafeConBritax

My friend, Victoria, gave birth to a gorgeous baby boy last month so I thought I pick her brain for some new baby insight into the two NEW infant Britax car seats.

When Victoria’s youngest daughter was born two years ago, she decided to try a convertible car seat that was able to carry babies from birth until they are ready to move into a booster seat; foregoing an infant carrier car seat altogether. The first problem she ran into was leaving the hospital. The hospital administration refused to allow her to leave with her new bundle of joy without bringing the car seat into her room, having the it verified, and taking the child down to their car in the seat. Since their car seat didn’t meet all the hospital requirements, that was a problem they weren’t prepared for.

For hours, Victoria explained to the hospital staff that their car seat wasn’t designed to be removed from their vehicle as it was a convertible car seat, not an infant seat. It felt as if the more she spoke, the more confused they became. Trying to explain to someone that the car seat they owned wasn’t an infant seat but, was permitted to be used for infants, was tiring. So much so, that her husband decided enough was enough and ran to a nearby store and purchased an infant carrier car seat, just so they could leave!

The entire ordeal started, just for being frugal and trying to save money. In the long run, her attempts to save, ended up costing her more instead. Ended up with an infant carrier car seat that she didn’t have the opportunity to research and the husband overpaid, purchasing from a store they didn’t usually shop. They were pretty angry.

Having been through this terrible situation, they learned their lesson and would not go through ever again. When her youngest was born last month, he went home in an infant carrier car seat. So if you will be welcoming a little bundle of joy, consider Britax and avoid all possible inconveniences at a time of joy.

Britax Products Travel System

About Britax’s B-Safe 35 Elite and B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seats:

The new Britax B-Safe 35 Elite and B-Safe 35 infant car seats allow the newest members of the family to stay safe and comfy on the go. Parents can travel with confidence knowing that their babies can ride in the highest level of safety with Britax SafeCell Impact Protection, an integrated system of safety components that protects infants beyond government standards. The new SafeCenter LATCH Installation also provides peace of mind with a simple installation of these lightweight, streamlined infant seats.

The B-Safe 35 Elite and B-Safe 35 feature the Britax SafeCell Impact Protection system, which surrounds an infant with safety technologies that work together to provide the ultimate in crash protection. An Impact Absorbing Base is engineered to compress during impact to absorb crash energy and reduce injury potential and an Impact Stabilizing Steel Frame ensures a strong, secure connection to the vehicle seat. A contoured shell lined with energy-absorbing foam surrounds an infant with Complete Side Impact Protection, which safeguards against crash forces and shields from debris. The B-Safe 35 Elite offers an additional layer of safety, Complete Side Impact Protection PLUS, with an energy-absorbing headrest that keeps the baby’s head and neck extra secure during a crash.

Britax designed both the B-Safe 35 Elite and B-Safe 35 to install with ease, featuring the SafeCenter LATCH Installation, which offers center-pull straps that cinch down quickly and tuck safely out of the way for stress-free installation. The Easy-On/Easy-Off LATCH Connectors feature a simple button to release both connectors. For proper positioning in the vehicle, parents will know instantly if the seat is at the correct angle by using the Dual Level Indicators and the one-handed, Spring-Assisted Recline. The infant seats can also be easily installed using the vehicle seat belt and the integrated lock-offs in the base. To ensure the best harness fit as the child grows, the B-Safe 35 Elite also features a Quick-Adjust Harness that can be lengthened with the push of a button.

What I love about the Britax B-Safe infant car seat line is both seats are designed to take up less car space AND they offer the smallest total installation dimensions of any infant car seats in their weight class! Families with a full backseat can be sure they are using the smallest car seat available to save room for additional seats and/or older children.

Additionally, each seat can be paired with any Britax stroller as a Travel System, allowing the consumer to pick the seat they love with the stroller they love. This means no settling because you love one product over the other!

Do You “HOLA”? Enter the #SpreadSomeHola Gain Gift Basket Giveaway!

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Gain. All opinions are 100% my own.

gain

There are times when I may be a little biased, but “HOLA”, just feels so much more loving to me than a “hello”. Especially when you’re in a room full of people you don’t know. What a great feeling when a person stops by your side and with a smile says “HOLA”. Don’t you agree?  It has happened many times! Especially during events where I didn’t know a soul there. One person stopping by with smile to say “hola” instantly settles my nerves and gives me the feeling that hey, I’m not alone at all, I’m welcomed! 

unnamed

Have you ever had a joyful moment when a simple “Hola” brought joy into your life?

Hola is a powerful little word – a word that communicates joy whenever it is spoken. It’s almost impossible to say without a smile. Try it. Can you say “hola” without smiling? Try it at the dinner table tonight. Ask your children if they can say “hola” without smiling too. When they can’t, explain to them the unique strength of the word is the joy attached to its meaning. This joy transcends virtually any situation. “Hola” has the power to calm, diffuse, disarm and place a smile on an unsuspecting face. Cierto?

Gain wants you to find the joy in the everyday. It’s often in the simple things that make all the difference, turning the mundane into something a little more meaningful. An unexpected hug instead of a handshake. Catching a whiff of freshly washed clothes straight out of the washer, OR this simple BUT IMPACTFUL word. Hola. There’s just something about it that you can’t quite put your finger on. It may be a little greeting, but it can pack a whole lot of joy.
