Latina Bloggers' Kids Ride Safely and Comfortably With Evenflo

One of the most important things a mamá worries about is keeping our children safe. These days we spend most of our time in our cars commuting to work and taking the kids to school or daycare.  Even on weekends we find ourselves driving to places to do things with the family. Thankfully Evenflo® takes our children's safety pretty seriously. With its introduction of the Platinum Protection Series car seats, mamás can relax and enjoy the ride.  Check out some of the Latina Bloggers we selected for this campaign and  how their kids got to experience the seats' amazing features and rode with style!

"When I’m looking for a car seat for our children, we first look for safety features, style and then price. The Evenflo Symphony™ DLX All-in-One Car Seat seems to have it all."

"This is Jordi, our third baby boy. He knows he is about to climb into a new car seat and he can’t wait! It is amazing how kids this young get so excited about these things! I hope that all my boys know that Mami and Daddy only look for the absolute best when making a decision in regards to their safety."

 "Temperature regulating fabric in the padding of the seats to keep babies and toddlers comfortable during hot or cold weather. I love this new feature, it gets very hot in south Texas during the Summer and it's good to know that Maddox will be as comfortable as possible in his seat."

"After spending hours shopping and looking at cushions (it was so hard to choose just one style, all of them were great!) I came back home with all the necessary goodies I found at my local Pier 1 Imports store. The things were so beautiful and I was so excited that it actually just took me a couple minutes to get everything in the right place."

"Ahora sí estoy lista para recibir a mis invitados. Pero antes deseo darle las gracias a las dos atentas asociadas de la tienda Pier 1 Imports quienes me dejaron ver, tocar, mover y sentir todos los productos, mientras charlamos sobre ideas para crear mi espacio."

"These are Assorted Mini Flower Mirrors that were in a giant jar at the checkout counter. They were only a dollar each! I used up every last cent of my gift card with a handful of these. I used tacky glue to add hanging wire to the back of each one so I could use them to fill space and add a pop of sparkle."

"In dreaming up an outdoor oasis that makes me happy, it always comes down to family legacy. For me, that means a backyard where the kids can play and feel comfortable, where we can create family meals and where Daddy D and I can sit comfortably while listening to the laughter of our children."

#LatinaBloggers Take AT&T’s #ItCanWait No-Texting-While-Driving Pledge

Our society is becoming aware that texting and driving can be fatal but far too many people still ignore the risk.  AT&T has begun a movement called #ItCanWait which is geared towards making texting and driving as unacceptable as drinking and driving.


Since the movement was launched in 2009, more than 2 million no-texting-while-driving pledges have been logged through, social sites including Facebook, text-to-pledge and events.

We're working together with AT&T to help spread the word and have engaged a select group of #LatinaBloggers who want to work with us to encourage their readers to take the pledge. These bloggers are aware that texting while driving is involved in 100,000+ vehicle crashes each year, often causing injuries and deaths, and have decided to take the pledge themselves and join us in promoting this important movement.  Visit their blogs to read more!

#LatinaBloggers Live Event with Avocados from Mexico

#LatinaBloggers Acovados from Mexico eventOne of the greatest things about our job is that we get to indulge in some of the best, and most authentic, culinary experiences anyone could ask for. Spending an afternoon with wonderfully talented food and lifestyle bloggers while enjoying homemade dishes designed around one specific ingredient that not only speaks to us culturally, but brings us back to our fondest family dinner memories, is what I call an afternoon well-spent.

We took the #ILoveAvocados campaign from the blogosphere, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram to the kitchen by inviting several Los Angeles bloggers to experience the delectable taste of Avocados from Mexico. Our host, Maura Hernandez of The Other Side of the Tortilla, spoiled us with her creations - Guacamole with mango and pomegranate, Guacahummus, Agua de Albahaca, paletas and more.

As each dish came out, it was a lot of fun to see (and taste) the versatility of avocados. From spicy to sweet, each bite was a pleasant surprise. Thank you to Avocados from Mexico for being a delightful staple in our kitchens and for being there as we create memories with family and friends!

If you'd like to try some of the recipes we had during our live event, check out The Other Side of the Tortilla. You can also dive into the world of avocado recipes with Avocados from Mexico, follow the #ILoveAvocados hashtag or like them on Facebook!

Stay connected with #FordenEspanol and the Ford Fiesta

It was a Fiesta indeed at the L.A. Auto Show last week. Not only did we help host a fun-filled Facebook chat along with Monique Frausto of Blogs By Latinas, we spent the day learning all about the new Ford Fiesta and experienced a jaw-dropping performance by race car driver Ken Block.

Don't be fooled by the small car appearance of the Ford Fiesta. It's plenty roomy and is loaded with an array of features and technologies - Perfect for us techies!

For example:

  • MyFord Touch® system - A 6.5-inch touch screen that features enhanced voice control. It provides drivers more options than ever for navigation, communication and entertainment functions.
  • SYNC® AppLink™ - Allows drivers to access and control Ford-approved smartphone apps with voice commands and vehicle controls while on the go, helping drivers keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
  • Ford’s MyKey® - A new feature! It enables parents in particular to encourage safer driving and limit their teenagers’ exposure to risk at the wheel. The system allows owners to configure maximum speed and audio volume limits. It also mutes audio until seat belts are fastened and ensures driver aids, safety systems and more vigorous alerts cannot be deactivated when used.

Projected to be the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid subcompact in America, these beauties are anchored by the award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost® engine and deliver a thrill-packed ride with unrivaled 40 mpg-plus. And if you're a color enthusiast and love to be in the spotlight, the new Ford Fiesta will not disappoint with plenty of hot colors to choose from.

Thank you to Ford for inviting us to celebrate in the launch of the 2014 Ford Fiesta! To see more pictures, check out our #FordenEspanol Facebook album and  Instagram profile!
