La Mexican-AmErikan

So it’s my third time around in Guadalajara.  How long I’ll be here? I still don’t know.  I’m taking it a day at a time, something VERY unusual to my character.  However, what I do know is that this time around I want to learn more about the culture, and do more than just take…


Prevent Stretchmarks

Today’s Health/Beauty Tip: Spring is less than a month away and summer is right around the corner after that.  What does that mean? The temperature will be rising and you ladies are going to be wearing less clothing (shorts, dresses, bikinis).  However, a stretchmark here or there can ruin your spring break/summer vacation, so here…


Stay Healthy

If you read my last post, I tried a detox diet for seven days.  I lost some weight and it was great, but…it didn’t end there.   Today is day 24 and I feel better than ever.  Why?  I’ve been eating healthier and exercising almost daily. So what’s in it for you? I’ve noticed that the…


What I gained and lost from “dieting”

Two green peppers, two pounds of carrots, two cans of green beans, one bunch of celery…Celery?! As I read the ingredients to my detox diet the word celery automatically transported me to 1989…   “But I don’t want to go back to that school!” I cried to my mom and dad. “¿Y por qué?” (Why?)…


What I learned this year…

It’s that time again, where everyone starts saying what they loved, hated, will miss about 2011 and what they want to accomplish in the New Year. As for myself this year even the bad gave me some good.  This was the first year since I was a teen that I became jobless and it took…


Will Banks be the End of Us?

There isn’t a day that goes by without the word “occupy” followed by the name of a city appearing somewhere online, on newspapers, TV or radio.  I didn’t pay much attention to it myself until it started creeping closer to the west coast.  Every large city in the U.S. is participating, marches are currently still…


An Eye for an Eye and a Shoe for a Shoe?

This past weekend I gave a child in need a new pair of shoes, a new pair of TOMS shoes.  I’ve seen these shoes on hundreds of people, however I never owned a pair myself.   I put it off for so long because they weren’t heels (if you look in my closet you’ll be lucky…


I Visited Mexico and Survived!

Ok so it’s been a while since my last post, but it’s been a weird month dealing with my dreaded last day of work and the excitement of seeing a loved one (after a long absence).  So many emotions running wild that I too* forgot to “celebrate” Mexico’s Independence Day.  Sure I’m not living in…


Hello There

Welcome everyone! This will be my new blogging headquarters.  Some of you have visited my previous site:  http://myquarterofacenturylifecrisis.blogspot.com/ and would like to thank you for following yours truly.  My older posts will be transferred here.  The plan is to continue posting blogs for everyone to enjoy, and to do it more frequently.  The site isn’t fully complete…


Far From Make Believe

Ever since I could remember I’ve enjoyed writing, English was always my favorite subject, and I enjoyed a book with a nice love story.  Like any young girl I got swept away by fairy-tales and happily-ever afters. I’d daydream of the arrival of my prince charming in more than one occasion and I’d write “his”…
