What a year! Spanglish Girl’s 2017 Highlights

Hola, amigas! How are you all?

I know it has been a while since I last shared a personal blog.

So what have I been up to since the finale of the Spanglish Girl Diaries?  Well first there was my birthday trip to NYC with one of my best friends. It was truly one of the best girls trip, ever!  My friend and I spent our days gallivanting around the city, visiting the top tourist and foodie spots.

Latino Beauty Hacks from Abuelita’s Kitchen & Garden

As a young girl, growing up in a rural western town where there were no stores, and money was tight, I and my sisters relied primarily on family beauty recipes passed down from our mother, grandmother and aunts to help treat skin and hair issues.

My grandmother’s home in many ways was the perfect resource.  Her kitchen cupboards were always stocked and her garden abundant. So I guess while most girls visited ULTA …

Latina, Catholic, Feminist & Proud

An open letter to those who say I cannot be Pro-Choice and Catholic:

I grew up Catholic, Mexican-American and poor.  All three of these identities shaped me into the woman I am today—a proud feminist.  That is until I marched in the Women’s March and my identities collided, forcing me to evaluate my identity as a Catholic feminist.

After the women’s March, I came across a Facebook post from a fellow Catholic woman, slamming those of us who marched, reminding us …

Below we’ve compiled a list of our favorite ones with …

Hola, Chicas!

It’s been a rough year for Latina-Americans, from having to defend our community against the racist rhetoric of a Trump candidacy, to loosing Juan Gabriel, it’s no wonder we’re happy to say adios to 2016! But on the bright side, in Arizona, we kicked Sheriff Arpaio to the curb and, in Nevada, elected the first Latina to the U.S. Senate, Catherine Cortez Masto.

I guess looking back, one could say it was a year full of highs and lows.   …

Dear family and friends who support Trump: I’m scared. Please help.

To my Family and Friends who supported Trump: I’m Scared. Please help.

Dear Trump supporters who call themselves my friends, acquaintances, family, neighbors, colleagues, classmates—those of you who have shared moments in life with me—my fellow Americans.

Please don’t ask me to calm down, I can’t.  You stood by a man who would call me a murderer, rapist, drug dealer and deem me professionally unqualified simply because I am Mexican. You also stood by a man …
