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!

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.

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is very dear to us! My daughter discovered it years ago and has been very much involved with this great organization. Did you know that Hispanics account for 19% of all college students, ages 18 to 24That’s a major Increase, up from 12% in 2008. What’s more, 69% of Hispanic graduates are now going to college after graduating directly high school, a rate higher than the overall population.

But the surge in Hispanic college-bound students presents a greater need for more information about college and financial support. Without this support, many who get to college won’t be able to graduate. According to the US Census Bureau, among adults ages 25+ who pursued post-secondary education, 38% of Hispanics who started college did not finish with a college degree, compared to 29% of the general population.

Parents play a critical role in helping their children prepare, plan and pay for college. Parents can find the support they need via the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (, which includes the information they need to guide their children through the application and enrollment process—and also to ensure that they have the financial resources needed to graduate.

Get to Know Shaila Durcal and Her New Album! Win an Autographed Guitar! #ShailaDurcalWMAT #AD


So excited about Shaila Durcal! It’s no secret that Dominicans LOVE Music! We hear Merengue and we are moving to the beat! Growing up in the Dominican Republic allowed me to hear the rhythmic sounds of locals hum and and so many types of music genres.

Do You Know Shaila Durcal?

As the years progressed we started listening to artists such as Rocio Durcal which brings me to mention that thanks to Walmart’s Total Access, I have the opportunity to learn so much of what goes on behind the scenes about Latino artists: fantastic interviews, pictures, videos and so much more where I discovered,  Shaila Durcal. Shaila is Rocio Durcal’s, daughter, who by the way, is this month’s Artist of the Month at Walmart Total Access….. and like we say back home:  “De tal palo, tal astilla”  which translates to “Like Mother, Like Daughter”.  So very true, so much talento!

Now you have the chance to see Shaila Durcal in an exclusive interview and presenting her new album “Shaila“. Born in Madrid, Spain, on August 28, 1979, both parents figures in the Spanish music, always surrounded by singing trials, constant touring, and LOTS of music. Shaila began traveling with her mom, both learning the ropes of the game and acting as one of Rocio’s backup singers. At her mother’s side she traveled all over Latin America, the States, and Europe, learning not only her mother’s repertoire, but to read, react and engage with  the audience. Shaila soon made the difficult decision to go as a solo artist.

 just released her new album and I’m very happy to say, includes a song in English: Choose Me, and album inspired by her experiences. She brings modern latin sounds with a spice of the music that I grew up listening to.  She connects with fans on a deeper level with her new music.

Holiday Giveaway! Win a Britax Car Seat #BritaxBestBet

Disclosure: As a Britax Latina Blogger/Advisory Board Member (and in partnership with Mami Innovative Media) this post is part of a sponsored outreach. All opinions expressed are my own.

Holiday Giveaway! Win a Britax Car Seat #BritaxBestBet

Are you ready to win a Britax Car seat?  Nothing is more important than a car seat when it comes to children’s products. Your child’s safety seat can mean the difference between life and death in an accident. You hear stories of tragic accidents that saddened me so very much. These are reminder of just how important seat belts and safety seats are, especially when they could have been avoided with the proper use of safety restraints.


Are you searching for a new booster seat before your holiday travels? You need to read the latest report from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This year they had a record breaking number of BEST BET recipients. This is the highest recommendation the IIHS issues and they gave it to twenty-seven new booster seats. Three of those twenty-seven were from Britax!

“Three redesigned highback boosters from Britax made the BEST BET list this year. They are the Frontier 90, Pinnacle 90 and Pioneer 70. Last year’s models were designated as Check Fit boosters, and Britax has discontinued them. The new models have an improved armrest design that puts the lap belt in the correct position for proper fit. In addition to highback boosters, these combination seats can be used as a harness-equipped forward-facing child restraint. Parents in the market for a BEST BET combination seat could consider any of these Britax seats”

Read the full article HERE.

It is amazing to me that EVERY Britax Harness-2-Booster seat earned a “BEST BET”— the Pinnacle, ClickTight, Frontier ClickTight and Pioneer™ combination Harness-2-Booster seats. They received this recommendation because in almost any car, minivan or SUV, they correctly position lap and shoulder belts on typical 4-to-8-year-olds.

“At Britax, we believe it’s our responsibility to ensure children are always protected, no matter where life takes them,” said Jon Chamberlain, president of Britax.

About the Britax Frontier ClickTight and Pinnacle ClickTight: both feature the ClickTight Installation System. With a few easy steps, parents can achieve a secure and easy install with the vehicle seat belt each and every time. In addition, both seats offer an Impact Absorbing Harness to provide resistance to forward movement in the event of a crash.

About the Pioneer: Pioneer includes a SafeCell Impact Absorbing Base, designed to keep children safe and secure in a crash by compressing and significantly lowering the center of gravity, reducing forward movement of the car seat.

About the Pinnacle: The Pinnacle’s superior protection goes above and beyond safety standards with Complete Side Impact Protection MAX. This technology features energy-absorbing cushions on the exterior of the seat to reduce crash energy by diverting crash forces before they reach the child while also providing extra protection for adjacent passengers.

All three seats offer Complete Side Impact Protection, featuring deep side walls and a head restraint with energy-absorbing EPP foam.

Britax encourages parents to call representatives at its Consumer Services department at 1-888-427-4829 or visit a local car seat checking station with any questions regarding the fit or installation of any child car seat at any time.


Enter below for your chance to win one of the Britax IIHS “Best Bet” carseats: Britax Frontier 90, Britax Pinnacle 90 or Britax Pioneer 70.

Special Giveaway Information: Britax WILL CHOOSE WHAT CAR SEAT, WHAT COLOR AND PATTERN THE GIVEAWAY WINNER will receive. Winner will receive their car seat AFTER JANUARY 2015.

We Celebrate Our Family Holiday Traditions with Hickory Farms Gifts!


After we started celebrating our family holiday traditions with Hickory Farms gifts, we noticed we can stay away from them! It seems that family traditions last longer than gifts. Some of my family’s favorite traditions include enjoying goodies from our Hickory Farms gift baskets. We use them when entertaining close friends and also send them as gifts to loved ones. It has become such a tradition that I have had family members call me asking where their basket is, if I don’t send them.

This month I received a Beef and Turkey Hickory Sampler Gift Box for my family to enjoy with Thanksgiving. As much as I tried to save it for our Thanksgiving guests… my husband found it first. Okay, so WE enjoyed it together! (I couldn’t resist the smoked Gouda! Since he already opened it, I figured it saving it was already a wash anyway.) It was a delicious early weekend lunch cuddled up on the couch. I felt a little guilty that we didn’t save it to share, but who can resist a Hickory Farms Gift Basket? You can’t!

What are your holiday traditions?

Hickory Farms knows they are are part of many family’s holiday traditions and is very proud to be a part of those nostalgic moments for more than sixty years. Throughout this time they have continued to focus on, and celebrate, its long heritage of tradition and authentic holiday memories.

Hickory Farms not only embraces passing down traditions through generations of families, but also creating new traditions and sharing them with loved ones. You can purchase Hickory Farms in nearly 600 Holiday Market stores and kiosks across North America, as well as in select retailers and online at
