Manic Music Monday 42

Manic Music Monday is when I like to take a moment to share music that I am loving, just heard and can not wait to share it with you!

I was not compensated for this post. I was provided with song downloads to facilitate this review. The opinions expressed are that of my own & others’ may differ. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more information.


You are going to L-O-V-E today’s Manic Music Monday feature, January Blu!


My name is January and I was born in January on the sand of surf city. With my eyes wide, ears open, dreaming under the California sun; nothing seemed impossible.  Music was all around me, the sound of waves crashing, wind gusting and my father ripping on the piano while serenading my mother.

Silence was not an option in my family, everyone expressed himself or herself through art and the boundaries were limitless. At age 8 I saw the Sound of Music performed live on stage; I thought to myself …”this is home”. In the blink of an eye, I was on stage belting my heart out and tapping the night away.

I was always the smallest girl with the highest pitched voice. So, I enjoyed shocking people by opening my mouth and letting my womanly voice ring throughout the auditorium. I had my fair share of bullying in school for being slightly different and music saved me from self-doubt. At the end of the day I knew I was perfect for all of my imperfections.

I was known as the dreamer; my mind would daze off into the distance to a land where Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers ruled the world. Although I loved to learn I never felt like I belonged in the classroom; bright lights, center stage, in a fabulous (can’t-stop-me-now!!) outfit, that was my classroom. So here I am, little miss sunshine singing to the beat of my own drum. I want to spread joy, awaken your soul, and encourage all to dream the impossible.

January’s song, “Trip to The Moon” is not only catchy and fun but it makes you sing out loud and I love music that makes me do that! (It means it’s good-right?)

I also love that her voice is so different from what I am used to hearing and kind of reminds me of  Nena (99 Luftballons)!

You can find January Blu’s single “Trip to The Moon” here or here as well as follow along with her on her journey on Facebook and Twitter.

Love, Sleep and Play

As our kids get older, it is often hard to remember the memories that made an imprint on our hearts and in our minds of when they were babies. Some of the memories may not all be pretty- the sleepless nights, the unkempt hair, the stained sweat pants (that you've been wearing all week) but you can look back at each picture of your child whether it is Love, Sleep and Play, you remember it as if it were yesterday.

This is part of a compensated campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pampers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.


Although Chucky is getting older and isn't a baby anymore, I can still remember bringing him home from the hospital, being so scared that I was alone with a tiny little life that I had to take care of all on my own and just hoped and prayed that in everything that I did that he would be a happy, healthy little boy.

Judging from some of these photos of our unique Love, Sleep and Play I think he is happy and healthy!




As a brand that has cared for the well-being of babies and their families for more than 50 years, Pampers understands the pressures parents feel in caring for their babies. They know that there is no “right way” to care for your baby/babies and that is why they are showing their support for all of the unique ways that babies experience Love, Sleep and Play. Pampers is launching a global campaign that pays tribute to the many unique ways that babies uniquely experience Love, Sleep and Play.

YouTube Preview Image

Love: Whether it's sibling love, parental love or love from their favorite stuffy or blanket.
Sleep: From the planned nap, a night filled with sweet dreams and priceless smiles or the sudden slumber while eating their supper.
Play: It's their favorite toy or the box that the most searched after gift came in.

In celebration of the global Love, Sleep and Play campaign, Pampers is calling on parents across North America to submit photos of their babies experiencing Love, Sleep and Play.

When you submit your photos they will be in the running to appear on the Pampers Facebook page, Twitter feed and in a special online gallery! *Plus they could be part of their huge surprise New York City celebration in August!!

You can submit your unique Love, Sleep and Play photos here until August 6th.

Monsters University

The days are getting longer, the weather is warmer, and the kids are excited for their summer break, so why not do something the whole family will enjoy and go see Monsters University?!

This is not a compensated post. I did however get to see a pre-screening of Monsters University. The opinions expressed are that of my own & others’ may differ.


I don’t want to spoil the movie for anyone so I am going to make this short and sweet!

I must say that we absolutely loved it!

Every time I go see a Disney Pixar movie, I look forward to the short films and this one was no exception either.

We each walked away with some new favorite characters and of course some of our old favorites.  It is a great movie with an even better learning lesson for the kids and adults too!

Monsters University opens in theaters June 21, 2013. Until then, you can follow along on Facebook, Twitter and the Monsters U website.

Will you be going to see Monsters University?

Manic Music Monday

Manic Music Monday is when I like to take a moment to share music that I am loving, just heard and can not wait to share it with you!

I was not compensated for this post. I was provided with song downloads to facilitate this review. The opinions expressed are that of my own & others’ may differ. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more information.


I love this song and the twist of the sound that The Wondergirls have put on it. It’s upbeat with that great rock tempo that we’ve come to know and love for this particular song.

When I first added The Wondergirls to my music player, we were headed out of town so Chucky asked if he could listen to it. Later that day, I could hear him singing the song and I just kind of giggled to myself because I knew I had to tell him that the song he just listened to, he would hear again soon!


The Wondergirls are not your typical rock band and have defied the status quo. Complete with a star-studded lineup, The Wondergirls are fronted by musician, songwriter and actor Ashley Hamilton (Vocals) who initially enlisted the help of friends Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray), Ian Astbury (The Cult), Shannon Leto (30 Seconds to Mars), Jay Gordon (Orgy), Ryan Shcuk (Orgy), Doug Ardito (Puddle of Mudd), Ken Andrews (Failure), Martyn LeNoble (Porno for Pyros) and Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age). This super-group of musicians originally recorded two tracks, “Let’s Go All the Way” and “Drop That Baby” in 1999; however, due to complications, the band was unable to release their tracks and as quickly as it happened, it was over.

Shortly after the disbandment in 1999, Hamilton was encouraged be Weiland to pursue his passion of music. In turn, Hamilton ventured to the UK and released his solo album with Sony Records to an astounding reception, peaking the charts at #7. Following his musical success, Hamilton returned to the US to resume his acting career, securing major roles on numerous television shows and films; including his most recent role as villain Jack Taggart in Iron Man 3.

Fast forward to 2013 when Hamilton sparked a revival of the super group, The Wondergirls, along with several new members which now consists of Ashley Hamilton, Jay Gordon (founding member and creator of Orgy), Chris Llyod (former VP/A&R Executive at Flip Records) and Doug Ardito (Guitarist and original member of Puddle of Mudd).

Not only did Hamilton earn a role in Iron Man 3, but The Wondergirls single, “Let’s Go All The Way” featuring Robbie Williams also nabbed a spot on the Iron Man 3: Heros Fall Soundtrack, alongside various artists including Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees and more.

On our way home, I told Chucky that this song along with Ashley Hamilton would be in the Iron Man 3 movie and he thought that I was lying so I had to pull over on the side of the road and show him proof! Once he saw the movie, he thought it was really cool!

Needless to say, I am dying to see the movie as well as Ashley’s role as Jack Taggart! (because I haven’t seen it yet)

You can find The Wondergirls on the Iron Man 3 Soundtrack on iTunes as well as follow them on their journey on Facebook and YouTube.

What do you think of the song? Did you see Iron Man 3?

Soaking in Mami & Me Time This Summer with Dole Fruit Squish’ems

School has been out for a little over two weeks here, while I love summer break, I don’t love hearing, “I’m bored” two days in! Chucky is getting older and won’t want to spend quality time with me anymore so I have to take advantage of that and what better way to do it then soaking in mami and me time this summer with Dole Fruit Squish’ems?

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Dole Packaged Foods, LLC. However, all opinions expressed are my own.


The new Dole Fruit Squish’ems fruit pouches are not only a delish’ish and nutritious snack, but are great on the go too! And each pouch contains a full serving of all-natural fruit and is only 60 calories.


New Dole Fruit Squish’ems are available in three yummy flavors, including:

  • Apple
  • Apple Mixed Berry
  • Apple Strawberry

Luckily Dole Fruit Squish’ems come in easy-to-use pouches and are an easy, great tasting, convenient snack that make our quality time mess free and full of memories!

Here are a few ways that we’ll be soaking in mami and me time this summer with Dole Fruit Squish’ems.

Dole Fruit Squish’ems are perfect for the pool! They are not only a quick and easy to grab-and-go snack, they are a better and nutritious choice for our kids and best of all, they also don’t take much clean up.

Road trip! Dole Fruit Squish’ems are going to be the perfect snack for our road trip this summer because you won’t have what is left of wilting fruit waiting to be thrown away at the next stop!

Quick snack while your out and about. I know this may sound crazy because Chucky is older, but I love that the Dole Fruit Squish’ems can be thrown in your bag and given while your out and about. There is nothing worse then hearing a tween whine that they are hungry (okay I take that back, I remember the toddler years very vividly)!

A slow down and enjoy the moment. Yep, it hasn’t been an uneventful week so far but it sure will make it great to sit out on the grass while soaking in mami and me time this summer with Dole Fruit Squish’ems!

You can find Dole Fruit Squish’ems in your local grocery store as well as on Facebook and Twitter.


How would you use Dole Fruit Squish’ems for mami and me time?

Living Life in La La Land

I know I have been a little absent lately, and I apologize! Although I am not officially on summer break yet from school, Chucky is and has been for a little over two weeks. I am spread so thin between school, two jobs, full-time mommy and everything in between that I just couldn’t stop there…could I? I am going to share with you how I have been living life in la la land!

A few months ago, (the hoarder in me just busted out laughing) my mom and I decided to start our own little business. Let me introduce you to…


Well needless to say, I am a little weird when it comes to making items to sale instead of gift, I don’t feel that I am crafty or creative at all and yet when I make things for others, they love them and often tell me to open a shop or sell the items I make. So I took their advice (with my knees knocking) and opened up a little shop with my mom!

Although we know what we want to create, I am a little weird in that I want to have everything I need before I start creating. So if someone says, “Do you have an 24 carat shih tzu diamond pendant,” I can say, “Yes, yes I do”. (NO, I don’t have a 24 carat diamond shih tzu or that kind of money, it was just a reference!!) My mom on the other hand wants to start making things with what we have.

Please don’t get me wrong, I see where she is coming from, if you start making and selling, you can then buy more supplies?! Yes, I get that but like I said, I am a little weird!

Now before I jump in and make this post all about us bickering back and forth about our new business, I am excited to tell you that we have had a few purchases! There is nothing more exciting then having someone like the things you create and purchase them for themselves or a loved one!! (Seriously!!)

While I am on the topic of purchases, if you feel so inclined to check out our little shop and find something you like but don’t want to make a purchase, please let me (us) know. Just like with any business, you never know if your hitting your mark or not and I am all about the feedback, good or bad!!

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, I want you to know that although I have spread myself pretty thin, this blog isn’t going to be going anywhere anytime soon! I feel like I can come here when I am living life in la la land and share that with all of you because you understand how I feel(: Although the circumstances may be different, we all have busy lives and other things going on that we would just love to share with people who aren’t going to judge us but listen and give some encouraging words!

And I hope you all won’t go anywhere either because I have some amazing things coming up here really soon!!
