Dora Links, the kinda controversial doll that had a lot of us screaming about turning sweet Dora into a Webbie chola, is available for pre-order on Amazon. You can get a sneak at the package over here too. Cute, huh?
Via Hispanic Trending and the Xinhua News Agency, 41% of Latino girls fail to graduate from high school. Shivers.
The report was released by the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) entitled ”Listening to Latinas: Barriers to High School Graduation.” It takes a look at the drop-out crisis in the Latino community.
And here is a fun and fresh find, celebrity makeup artist Luis Casco offers beauty and makeup tips specifically for the gorgeousness that are Latinas on his blog, the well-titled Latina Makeup and Beauty. (He’s done Tina Fey and Helen Mirren y mas.)
You will find tips like, how to get Christina’s eyebrows and tricks for the light-skinned and brunette Latina “morena clara”; and the scoop on Salma’s new makeup line. (Luis, how about a Tiki Tiki how-to?).
