My favorite things about Moana


By now you guys know I adore Disney, so when I got to attend the screening of Moana this week before it opened in theaters I was thrilled! If figured this time around I should switch up my review a bit so here are my favorite things about Moana and I’m pretty sure you’ll love them too.

  • Best animal sidekick ever!

Not only does Moana have a pet piggy Pua but also some incredibly challenged chicken Hei Hei who is definitely not all there. My kids were laughing so hard at all the silly things and it was pretty cool how it was included in so many parts of the movie. Now I want a chicken…and a piggy moana582ac07062dbb

  • Adjusting body image

This is probably the first thing I noticed and loved. Moana is a fierce 16 yr old girl and for the first time in Disney history; she looks like a 16 yr old. Just as a quick refresher… she’s the same age as Ariel, Mulan and Aurora. I can’t tell you enough how I amazing it is to see a realistic looking girl, don’t get me wrong my favorite princess ever is Ariel, but honey that waist couldn’t be any farther from reality!

Moana is showing little girls what it looks like to be 16, no tiny waists, no huge boobs, which is so reassuring and quite honestly necessary in this times where little girls and young women are told they have to look a certain way to be beautiful. And as a curly haired woman and mother of a curly haired little girls is so wonderful to see luscious dark black curly hair and a big nose. I ADORE it!


  • Amazing cultural experience

Perhaps I was a bit sentimental or maybe I’m just a big baby but the inclusion of another language, native dances and costumes gave me a knot in my throat. THIS.IS.EVERYTHING. I want my children to grow up learning about different cultures and learning other languages so this is such a refreshing change from your usual animated movies and Moana is this an so much more, to see the Polynesian culture come through so beautifully makes me want to learn more! Also the folk stories about their ancestors (mostly Maui) and the way so many things were created are great.


  • Be courageous and follow your destiny

What a huge change! Moana is to put it quite bluntly a badass! She knows exactly what needs to be done and she goes above and beyond to fulfill her destiny. She learns how to sail, fights monsters and saves not only her island but the world. All while reminding us to take care of mother earth because she loves us. What better message could we convey to kiddos?

MOANA arrives in theaters everywhere on November 23rd! In the mid time check out the trailer here:

#MyReason is Halloween

I adore Halloween, it’s my favorite holiday. So when I got the chance to throw a #myreason party with the help of At home stores I was thrilled. 

At home offers a huge array of decorations, inflatables and pretty much anything you need to make your home a haunted mansion. 

I was super excited for the table settings, the hanging ghosts and witches, the inflatables and all the decorations. I also couldn’t believe how affordable it all was. On the last week they even marked down ALL their Halloween stuff. 

I got an awesome kit to go with the party, with decorations and goodies to make yummy foods. Check it out: 

Overall the party was a success and I’m so glad I got to decorate with the gorgeous stuff At home offers, everyone had an awesome time and it’ll become a yearly thing. 

Go here to find an At home store near you! Check out their website and download the app, they offer insanely amazing deals every week and you want to be the first one to know!

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Honey Bunches of Oats and WeAllGrow Latina.

Let me start by telling you my family adores Honey Bunches of Oats. With three kids cereals come and go and you can be sure we’re always very well stocked but the only one that’s always in the pantry is Honey Bunches. They all LOVE IT! And with good reason, there is no other cereal as complex and tasty as HBO. Like my husband would say it’s like an elevated “confleis” LOL So you can image how thrilled my entire family was to know I was partnering with Honey Bunches of Oats to share all the deliciousness with my lovely readers!

For you to understand my family’s love for cereal I need to tell you cereal was THE major food group for my husband growing up, and his love affair with HBO started many many moons ago. To be entirely honest we buy it in the bulk size at the warehouse store, you know those huge boxes? And it lasts as long as you would expect a tiny 8 oz box to last.
It’s kinda funny to call a cereal complex, but it really is! Honey Bunches of Oats has everything that you might love in a cereal, it’s crunchy, sweet, tasty and the different textures pick up the milk at different speeds so it really is a play on the senses. If you have never had a bowl I highly recommended.
And if you are like my family and you would like to show your undying love for Honey Bunches, they are launching a new microsite to give people the opportunity to star in their own “THIS. IS. EVERYTHING.TM” video. How fun is that?

Here’s how you get in on the fun:

Visit and personalize the new ad spot video with photos of yourself and your family.
You can make a video each day, for a chance to win $10,000. And obviously I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to now only share the love but also enter to win some moola.
You can check out my video here.

It’s easy to create one of your own video; all you have to do is upload three photos; a selfie, a family/friends photo and a favorite superhero shot (no cape necessary). After you upload your photos, the site has fun stickers and emojis you can add to your photos. How easy is that?! Then just click submit for a chance to WIN! Then they will email you the video, so you can share it with everyone you know!

The sweepstakes launches August 29, 2016 and ends October 31, 2016.
Visit and personalize the new ad spot with photos of yourself and your family.
And make sure to visit Honey Bunches of Oats on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more fun.
