Latina Bloggers for 2011
Happy 2011, everybody! All ready for goodness? Got your goals all lined up? Here at the Nashville offices of el Tiki Tiki, we always get jazzed about the possibilities and potential of the New Year. My year is starting with a brand new pair of hiking boots! Vamos a ver how it goes. Oh, and we’ve got a brand new list of blogs by Latinas to read. Maybe you already know them? If not, aqui estan:
To provide inspiration for moving la colita, I am reading Barbara Trujillo-Gomez, the NJ-based multicultural health and wellness expert who penned the smartly-titled book, Barbara Por Atras. Get it? As Barbara puts it, she’s about enhancing our “God-given curves and caderas by keeping the culture and losing the fat.”Asi! Check out her blog at Barbara Por Atras.
Veronica from Crunchy VT Mommy is a stay-at-home mom to two little ones. She’s funny and I most recently loved this post about an awkward Facebook exchange with her mom.
Lisa Perez is a mama in New York City and publishes New York Chica about the “ramblings of a mom surviving mamihood.’’ Lots of giveaways.
Monica Olivera Hazelton homeschools her two children and writes about it at Mommy Maestra. You don’t need to be a home-schooler to enjoy all she puts out there, which focuses on passing on culture through lessons, big and small.
Leslie Limon writes stories about living in Mexico at Motherhood in Mexico. Also be sure to check out her wonderful food posts.
Dulces and goodness over at A Chica Bakes, written by Eliana in Brooklyn. Be sure to check out the “Latin Flair’’ recipes.
Cynthia writes at Dos Borreguitas, focusing on fashion, culture and toys for little ones, but offers much more. She’s funny and interesting.
Allow me to introduce you to two incredibly adorable sisters from Mexico who write a lot about astrology and fun. They go by S and D over at Nice Things in Small Packages.
Carmen Ordonez writes Viva Fashion Blog, with daily tips, steals and inspiration. We all need a little of this, no?
Miami-based Blanca Stella sort of shines from the inside out and is pure de-lovely. No wonder she writes an inspiration blog called Mi Caminar. Go there when you need a good lift.
Now, if you need a great laugh, visit Sweet Home Hialeah for regular photos of the funny and ironic in “La Cuidad que Progresa” — and gets made fun of a lot. “Pepe” and “Juana” write it.
Then, head over to read what two young, funny cubanitas raised in Miami are doing over at Lo Que Pica El Gallo. They are Lauren and Lyanis.
Read our Contributors, too. The Tiki Tiki has been graced by smart, talented, funny and thoughful writers over the last year. Please take a minute to spin through our Contributors. We’re certain you will find fabulousness and new friends.
Now, what are your reading?
