With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it seems that the celebration of love has taken over everything. I can’t even walk into a pharmacy without seeing candy hearts, pink cards and chocolate boxes covering the walls. But it’s more fun to make your own dessert for that special someone.
This February 14th, I’d rather cook up something unique that speaks to my culture than buy a treat-in-a-box. Everyone knows that chocolate covered strawberries are a classic, but how do you make them your own? I have a few ideas on the best way to Latinize this Valentine’s day favorite...Continue Reading >
I’m a fan of romance and know that spending time together is very important for couple unity but we may be taking it a little too far on Valentine's Day. A new report by Pew Research showed that Americans spent $1.7 billion on flowers, $3.4 billion on dining out and $3.5 billion jewelry on average every time February 14th rolls around. Whatever happened to “can’t buy me love”?
What if you want to celebrate this Valentine's Day without emptying out your wallet? We have some great ideas on how to show your sweetie how you feel without spending an arm and a leg.

Whether you have plans with your partner, or will be enjoying a night on the town with your girlfriends, consider adding a flirtatious touch to your look with a bold red lip. Here are some quick tips on how to wear rock this bold lip and how to find the right one--red lipstick that is!Continue Reading >
One of my favorite romantic songs of all time is Elvis Crespo’s “Suavemente” in which he repeatedly asks for soft kisses, more kisses, just a little more kissing and kissing a little longer. I thought it was just sentimental lyrics meant for women but it turns out that his words reflect the results of a new survey which says that men just love kissing.
It’s a long standing assumption that women are more interested in foreplay than men. But the survey findings from Tokii find that more men list kissing as their favorite type of foreplay. So what’s a girl to do?
It's February, and you're probably seeing double (triple!) in the form of little red hearts hanging everywhere. This month inspires romance, and begs everyone to dream about love and being loved. Of course I'm a firm believer that EVERY day should be Valentine's Day, with all the reasons to celebrate love, friendship and family. Why is it that all those cute, bubbly, unexpected expressions of love are reserved exclusively for one date on the calendar? I say we should open it up and let romantic breakfasts in bed and little gifts of affection be more the rule than the exception in everyday life!
So, I dare you to start with something as simple as an "I love you", un "Te amo." And I don´t mean just spit it out and you´re done. I mean an "I love you" that can be said in new, creative ways…Continue Reading >
Apuesto cualquier cosa a que no hay mujer alguna que de verdad pueda decir que se ha topado con el hombre perfecto. Puede que ante mis ojos mi pareja (¡casi!) lo sea, pero para serte honesta son precisamente las imperfecciones en el hombre ¨perfecto¨ las que lo hacen más ¡irresistible! Algunas los preferimos gringos, otras preferimos a los hombres latinos. Pero todas los queremos guapos, inteligentes, sensibles, caballerosos, fieles, con buen sentido del humor, que nos cuiden mucho (pero que no nos celen), que sean caseros (pero que les guste socializar), que nos ayuden en la casa (pero que lo hagan como nosotras decimos), blah, blah, blah…¡Qué difícil es complacernos chicas!Continue Reading >

Valentine’s day can be really rough, especially if you are single and looking for love, but it doesn’t have to be. For starters, if you’re a single mami, you should focus on celebrating the love part of the holiday, it doesn’t necessarily have to be romantic. Remember, all across Latin America, this holiday is celebrated more as a day of general friendship and appreciation for those close to you, including everyone from family to coworkers.
