Indulge without guilt with LALA yogurt smoothies


This is a sponsored post in collaboration with LALA® Yogurt Smoothies and WeAllGrow Latina.

When you’re a mom your perception of food changes a bit. Maybe you want chocolate for breakfast but obviously can’t because you don’t want your kids to think it’s ok, so you either hide in the pantry or just give up your super bad eating habits. And although I am thankful for having to be more mindful of what I eat in front of the kids, I still want to feel like I indulge once in a while, which is so hard to do when you have a little one permanently attached to your hip. It was hard…until I discovered LALA® Yogurt Smoothies.


These adorable bottles of not only healthy but super delicious drinkable yogurts are such a game changer. I can satisfy my sweet tooth, while getting protein, vitamins and they are only 100 calories! What?!? Yes, you read that right! 100 calories for creamy deliciousness. 

My favorite LALA® Yogurt Smoothies is the mango flavor, since it’s made with real fruit it’s so good, specially in these winter months when mangos are not season so getting my mango fix is soooooo hard! No fake mango taste here. 


And like I said before zero guilt, my kids love them. Specially my 4 year old who can be a bit picky. He asks for “those yummy drinks” with a straw and I have the peace of mind that my little meat hater is getting protein and doesn’t even know it! 

LALA Yogurt Smoothies are the perfect on-the-go snack too! From kids to adults, everyone loves them. And the best part they are available at your local HEB stores.

HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS ESTO.ES.TODO. STARRING YOU!

hbo-logo-high-res2

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!

esto-es-todo
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 HoneyBunchesthisisEverything.com 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.

hbo-ig-adwords-hispanic
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 HoneyBunchesthisisEverything.com 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.

The Secret Life of Pets character collectibles from GM


Have you seen the specially marked boxes of General Mills Big G Cereals (Honey Nut Cheerios, Cheerios Multi Grain, Lucky Charms, Trix and Cocoa Puffs) they made me feel like a little girl! They now come with free character collectibles from the New movie The Secret Life of Pets, including: Max the pampered terrier mix, Duke the massive mutt, Snowball the leader of the flushed pets, Buddy the sarcastic dachshund, Gidget the naïve, but gutsy Pomeranian and Chloe the fat cat.


So what you might ask what can you do with these adorable collectables? Well, you can hang them from backpacks, use as keychains, or… you can use them as the perfect project to keep your little ones busy this summer! What better than to make them a house!


After you gobble up the delicious cereal, make sure you get your collectable and keep the box! You can use it to make them a little house to play and promote imagination. If your kids are anything like mine this would provide hours or entertainment, specially if they already watched the movie.


All you need is some cardboard, you can save the box or get a pre made house at your local craft stor and paint! Isn’t our house adorable?! And the kids are just having a blast with it! They loved choosing the colors and painting it 😊


Check out the adorable Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund on the grassy green carpet for The Secret Life of Pets. HERE

Making Care Bears at build a Bear!

 
You guys know my undying love for Care Bears, so when I had the chance to take the kiddos to make their own Care Bear at Build a bear I think I was more excited then them! 😂 yes, I might be that kind of mom…  

As soon as we walked in we were greeted with excitement and the kind of joy you can only find at places where the sweetest memories are made. They explained the process to the kids and after each picked a Care Bear, it was time to fill them up. Here’s the adorable video of the super thoughtful girl making sure this was unforgettable for K.

  
 
 Everyone we met was kind and super sweet and the whole experience was simply adorable.   

How about some adorable clothing for your bears? From pjs to dresses! Aren’t these darling?!  

After you’re done you can register your new stuffy friend, pick their name and make sure they have your information in case three get lost.   

Thank you so much to Care Bears and Build a Bear for allowing my kids to experience this! And now we have adorable bears to snuggle with. ❤️

Sponsored Post: Pledge Multi Surface Cleaner

image2 (2)

I am messy, there I said it. In all honesty life just gets messy! As a mother of three crazy kids with lots of activities some days cleaning is just not a priority. Most families nowadays just don’t have the time to spend hours cleaning, so an amazing cleaner, that not only gets the job done but also helps to keep things clean longer sounds too good too be true, right? Well… NO! Pledge Multi Surface® is that amazing!

PLEDGE® MULTI SURFACE® ANTIBACTERIAL KILLS 99.9% OF GERMS, INCLUDING THE FLU VIRUS. THIS MULTI SURFACE HOUSEHOLD CLEANER IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO CLEAN, DUST AND DISINFECT, WHILE LEAVING THE FINISH ALONE.

  • No smeary residue
  • Kills 99.9% of bacteria
  • Kills 99.9% of germs, including the flu virus

I told you…AMAZING!!! So I decided to tackle my own messy, dusty home. I headed to Walmart and was fascinated by the variety of Pledge Multi Surface®and how easy they were to find. Right on the cleaning section, super hard to miss along  with lots of great Pledge® products. Some of the scents I found were:

  • Cashmere Woods
  • Sheer Linen
  • Hawaiian Breeze
  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Rainshower
  • Antibacterial-Fresh Citrus

Because I am a mom and sometimes my house seems to be an incubator for viral diseases I chose the Antibacterial one. It has a wonderful lemony scent that really makes you feel like everything is squeaky clean.

Dust seems to gather everywhere at my house, we live in the country and I swear dust multiplies here… Some days I dust and clean and by the next day it looks the same. So I put all my hopes and dreams on this product and hoped for the best. Here’s our entertainment center before it was introduced to Pledge Multi Surface®:

IMG_3620 (1)

I told you! Dust is serious stuff here! This is the entertainment center after one use of Pledge Multi Surface®:

IMG_3621

Amazing right?!? Shiny, pretty and best of all it’s been 4 days and it still looks that gorgeous, I’m convinced Pledge Multi Surface® has some dust fighting ninjas! I am so happy with the results and best of all I’m ecstatic at the fact that I won’t have to dust and clean as often. Also, I should mention as the name says Pledge Multi Surface® works on tons of surfaces, so after I cleaned the entertainment center I went after our fridge and now its shiny and tiny fingerprint free!

How do you dust? What are your favorite cleaning products? Have you tried Pledge Multi Surface®

New Technology Slashes Electricity Bills for Texans

If you live in a deregulated market in Texas (and millions do), there is a new technology company that is helping people save 40-60% off their energy bills.

First, take just a few minutes and use this savings calculator to learn what you could be paying based on your usage.  Energy Ogre is a one-of-a-kind technology company. The technology scours the current offers in Texas and finds the best deal for you. Homeowners, apartment renters, business owners are all saving some SERIOUS money.

Important Note: Energy Ogre is NOT an energy provider and the company doesn’t get paid by any energy provider for preferential treatment. They only find the best deal for the end consumer. They are a highly rated company with 5.0 reviews.

After using the calculator and learning how much you can save, you have the option to pay Energy Ogre $10 a month to become your “administrative assistant” and make changes on your behalf.  This takes the hassle out of dealing with your energy providers and you just sit back and save big money!

Check out what the press is saying about Energy Ogre!

15ENO_2108_Shared-Image-V4_300x25015ENO_2108_Shared-Image-V5_300x250 (1)

Here are a just a few reviews that you can read on their Facebook Page.

Alisha: “My bill got up to almost $200 a month in the summer in a small one-bedroom apartment. Now my bill has never been even close to $50 a month. I am so happy and thankful for this company who helped me save some much needed money for other bills!” 

Bernie: “Went with Energy Ogre 3 months ago, previously w/TXU for years @ .095 / KWH – bills ran anywhere from $160 – $300 – first three months w/ Energy Ogre – bills were Sept – $49, Oct.- $59, and Nov.-$57 – and we’re an all electric house.”

Adam: Energy Ogre is the best! I got out of a contract with an early termination fee and still saved lots of money!”

“Houston-based Energy Ogre’s focus is on electricity but at its heart, this is a technology company that uses analytics to find a rate that fits their clients’ demand profile.” via Houston Business Journal

Kathy: Got my first bill after signing up with Ogre and my bill dropped from the high $200s to $85! I was in shock .. but very happy!”

The personnel behind Energy Ogre have been involved with the Texas electricity markets since well before they deregulated in 2002. This group has built power plants, scheduled fuel and electricity and even owned and managed Retail Electricity Providers in the recent past. In 2013 they decided to create Energy Ogre to help end use customers fully unlock the benefits of the deregulated electricity markets.
