Meet Our New Amigas- Vi And Va! #ViandVa

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Vi And Va Dolls and Latina Bloggers Connect.

Vi and Va latina dolls

Today I want to introduce you to Vi And Va, our new amigas! I first learned about Vi And Va a few months ago while at the Toy Fair here in NYC. Vi And Va was launched by MGA Entertainment as a fashion doll line inspired by Latin cultures. Vi and Va, along with their best friends, Felicia and Roxxi, were created to help girls embrace their heritage. I love that Viviana, Valentina, Roxxi and Felicia are not just friends, they are also family!

I couldn’t wait to get the Vi and Va dolls to see how Gabriella would react to them. Gabby owns many muñecas but none of them really look like her. She was excited to see her new latina dolls! We were sent the Birthday Celebration Vi and Va dolls to review. Right away Gabby asked me to explain a “Sweet 16″ and “Sweet 15″.  I explained to her how a Quinceañera or Sweet 15 was latino tradition of celebrating a young girl’s coming of age. And well a Sweet 16 was pretty much the same thing, just the American version. She said she wants to celebrate both. lol

I love how each doll has her own personality. Gabby really connected with Va. Va loves learning to cook from her mom and grandmothers. She’s perfected family recipes like empanadas! Gabby loves helping me in the kitchen. She especially loves to bake! Also, out of the 4 dolls, complexion wise and hair color- Va is the one who Gabby looks like the most. Viviana aka Vi is passionate about music. Loves to play her guitar at family gatherings. Felicia is into art and Roxxi is an awesome dancer!

Vi And Va Dolls Review

Gabby is very happy with her new dolls, Vi and Va! She wants to add Roxxi and Felicia to her collection . So we might have to get them soon, so long as Gabby continues doing well in school! I love that even though all the girls are related, they all look different from each other. Just goes to show we all come in different shapes, sizes and colors but we can still be family!

Empanada Fork Review & Giveaway!


empanada fork review

I LOVE Empanada’s! They are so delicious! I have memories of my mom making them ever since I was a little girl. My favorite would have to be chicken empanada’s. Cheese is a close 2nd! I remember my mom using a fork to press down the edges and seal the empanada’s. When she had a lot to make I would help her out. I was always her assistant in the kitchen. I was so excited when I learned about the Empanada Fork by H.L.Unico LLC at the Casa Latina Expo I attended months ago! For starters Hipatia Lopez the inventor of the Empanada Fork was such a pleasure to meet! I couldn’t wait to give the Empanada Fork a try!

Using the Empanada Fork was great! A lot faster to press and seal my empanadas! I know if mami was around she would LOVE the Empanada Fork! I even told this little restaurant by my house that makes amazing empanada’s about the Empanada Fork! If you love making empanada’s then you have to give the Empanada Fork a try!

Hipatia Lopez the inventor of the Empanada Fork was kind enough to send us not 1 but 2 Empanada Fork’s! 1 for me and one for a lucky Mom In Love Forever reader! Entering the giveaway is easy, just use the widget below! Good luck!

Target Beauty Box Unboxing! #TargetBeautyBox

Target Beauty Box

I love Target! Have you guys heard about the Target Beauty Box?! I’ve heard about it before, but for some reason I never got around to ordering it, or it was too late to order it. This time around I managed to place my order! You get to see what you are going to be sent beforehand which is fine-though I do like the whole element of surprise. But at least you know what you are paying for,so you can’t really complain. Here is my video unboxing the Spring Target Beauty Box:

For $5 the Target Beauty Box is an AMAZING deal! Definitely worth the $5.00! The L’oreal setting spray alone retails for $10+! I’ve tried many subscription boxes and this is one of my favorites now. Can’t wait until the next box! I wish they would keep your info on file and just auto-send it. I don’t want to miss out on the next one! Unfortunately, this Spring box is sold out right now. BUT I will let you guys know next time it goes on sale! Be sure to follow me on social media!

Target Beauty Box

Have you tried any of the products from the Target Beauty Box? I’ve tried a few! I absolutely LOVE the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream! I have also been using the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set pretty much everyday to set my makeup. I own a Maybelline Color Elixir by Color Sensational lip color as well! Happy to add another color to my makeup collection! Oh,also in the Target Beauty Box is a coupon! I forgot to mention that in my video. Can’t wait to hit up my local Target soon!
