Today in honor of #hispanicheritagemonth
I went and bought a household favorite from my youth to share with the children! This “Abuelita” hot chocolate was a staple when the weather turned cold, and I can still picture my mom mixing it together over the stove. A nice compliment to the hot chocolate are these Simple truth Organic Little Cub Honey Graham’s, that Nellie enjoyed very much! Thank you @krogerco

Day 30 of Hispanic Heritage Month: The Final Day. I saved my The Look: City Shine barbie for last. I bought her off of eBay where she came with the lingering smell of cigarettes. The seller was nice enough to refund me, and now her hair smells clean after enough time has passed. The steffie mold is one of my absolute favorites. My first barbie was a Life in the Dreamhouse Midge, so I have a special connection with this face. I may have never started collecting barbie if I didn’t become so mesmerized by this face. #hispanicheritagemonth #thebarbielook #barbiecityshine #madetomovebarbie
It’s officially cold in Chicago and that means my teddy coat came out of storage and Mama Eva will be making my favorite cup of hot chocolate ❤️! Growing up I would look forward to my mom making Abuelita Chocolate for my siblings and I! Whenever she makes it for us now it takes me back to happy times 🤗! I love my @marianosmarket
family because you can always count on them to help you find your favorite products for all your Hispanic Heritage Month Celebrations! You’ll find everything you need to make your favorite dish or drink 😋. #krogerfoodie #hispanicheritagemonth #mymarianos #sponsored

The women in my family are bitches.
Cranky bitches, stuck up bitches, Customer Service bitches, turn sour bitches.
Can I help you bitches? Next in line bitches.
I like this purse ’cause it makes me look mean bitches,
Can you take a picture of my outfit for me, get the heals in, bitches.
I always wear heals to la fiesta, and I never take them off bitches.
All men will kill you bitches, all men will leave you anyway bitches.
You better text me when you get home okay bitches.
Pray before the plane takes off bitches,
Pray before the baby comes bitches,
She has my eyes, my big mouth, and my fight bitches.
Sing to the scabs on her knees when she falls down bitches,
Give Abuelita bendiciones bitches,
It’s okay not to be liked bitches.
On their own until infinity bitches, the vengeful, violent, pissed, pressed, and polished bitches.
Lipstick stained on an envelope, I’ll be damned if I comply bitches, the:
What did you call us?
What did you say to us?
What’s that kind of love called again?
Por un tiempo largo yo nunca estuve orgullosa de mis raíces y tuve casi ningún o nada de interés en la cultura de mi familia. Pero este pasado año he extrañado a mi mamá demasiado, y cuando me dice que extraña mucho a su país o me enseña videos de su pueblo sobre FaceTime, no puedo parar de amar a Mexico también. Aunque estoy tarde para el club de ser mexicana orgullosa, estoy aprendiendo a amar un país hermoso con una herencia llena de historia y aprendizaje.
De tu favorita Mexicana/Salvadoreña, feliz mes de la herencia hispana.
Last day of #HispanicHeritageMonth
🇲🇽... Sometimes I wonder how my life would have been like in México. Would I have ever found my love for running? My passion for nursing? The determination to fluently speak a second language? My parents left everything behind 18 years ago, including their families, to give us a better future. I might not ever know what my life would have been like in México, but what I do know is what it has become here... and I am going to make sure that my parents sacrifices were not in vain. Embrace the struggle. Embrace your culture. Embrace your story. I will never forget where I come from, nor will I ever loose sight of where I’m going. SI SE PUEDE 💪🏼🇲🇽❤️ #MexiCAN #Hispanic #Latina #VivaLaRaza
mi amorrrrr 🤤💓te quiero MUCHO y tu eres mi inspiracion!!! gracias por todo esta noche. this was an incredible end to #latinoheritagemonth #hispanicheritagemonth
and i left tonight feeling more empowered in myself and grateful for my heritage than ever before.
Hispanic Heritage Month ends today and we thank the Spanish students and teachers for educating us all month long! #hispanicheritagemonth
Hispanic Heritage Month Series continued...• Model: @tibycamacho
Country: Dominican Republic
Flower: Bayahibe Rose
Ending my Hispanic month series is Tiby a proud Dominicana. Tiby represents the Bayahibe Rose by being vibrant, exotic, and beautiful. Tiby moved from DR to Florida a couple years ago but she still embraces her Dominican culture, her favorite is said to be dancing bachata and eating mangu. #platanopower
As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to an end, I just want to share how grateful I am to have been apart of the HHM student planning committee. From meeting the amazing people on this team, to learning more about other cultures, to having important conversations about the Latinx community, this has been one of the best experiences I’ve participated in so far at USF!🌞 #confuerzaysabor #hispanicheritagemonth
For Latinx Heritage Month, Refinery29 let me share a short story about what my abuela means to me and my family. My grandma moved from the Dominican Republic to our apartment in Williamsburg to help raise the kids & I feel grateful for the Latinx culture that once thrived in our area of Brooklyn. Honoring my grandma, my family & my people 365 days a year🇩🇴🇨🇷Gracias @andreagonram
for this opportunity to celebrate #latinxheritagemonth #hispanicheritagemonth

“Yo me crié sin papá y sin mamá. Le digo yo no tuve guía. Me enseñé abrirme brecha yo solo. Pero con suerte yo me crié con unos viejitos. Me enseñaron que lo ajeno se respetaba y que la vida se respeta. Yo creo que tiene mucho que ver la educación que se recibe. No sabían leer ni escribir, pero eran unos señores muy respetuosos.”
“I was raised without a father or a mother. I tell you, I did not have a guide. I learned to pave my own way. Fortunately, I was raised by two elderly men. They taught me to respect others and to respect life. I believe that the education one receives has a lot to do with it. They didn’t even know how to read or write, but they were respectful men.” #hhmfotoproject #hispanicheritagefotoproject #hispanicheritage #hispanicheritagemonth #elrespetoalderechoajenoeslapaz
As latinas we don’t need a reason to celebrate but we did want to highlight the closing of Hispanic Heritage Month. As members of the Latinx community we are proud of where we come from. The culture, the people, the flavors, the language, the lands, the sounds. It has taught us to be proud, to be passionate, to love, to fight, to be resilient. Viva America Latina!
Como latinas no necesitamos una razón para celebrar, pero si queríamos destacar el cierre del mes de herencia hispana. Como miembras de la comunidad latina, estamos orgullosas de donde venimos. La cultura, la gente, los sabores, el idioma, la tierra, los ritmos. Nos han enseñado a ser orgullosas, a ser apasionadas, a amar, a luchar, a ser resistentes. Viva America Latina!
Day 27–Anger Is a Gift by Mark Oshiro. Moss is as well-adjusted as he can be other than his father died & he has panic attacks. But one day, something terrible happens at school & Moss is angry. What will he do with it? #HispanicHeritageMonth
José Fajardo, master flutist and leader of Cuban Jam Sessions Vol. 5, was massively famous during the Cuban Jams era. “Saying my father’s name in Cuba then was like saying ‘Michael Jackson’ in the U.S.,” his son recalls. #HispanicHeritageMonth
The main ingredient for comida is family. Thank you for celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with ours. ¡Feliz Mes de la Herencia Hispana!

Michael Caballero "Going green" means more than just recycling to Michael Caballero. The Fed Ex systems engineer from Miami, Florida is doing his part for the environment as well as his community. He founded the company Earthware Inc., which produces biodegradable cutlery (think potatoes and sugarcane) to reduce peoples’ carbon footprints. The natural materials are even locally sourced to ensure the company keeps its carbon footprint low. The company plans to hire those most at risk to manufacture their products including military vets and formerly incarcerated citizens. The University of Miami alumni also keeps busy (among other pursuits) with SmartMiami, a program he co-founded to connect policymakers and community leaders allowing them to jointly create sustainable and equitable infrastructure for all of Miami’s residents.

To close off #HispanicHeritageMonth
would like to recognize #HermanasMirabal
or better known as Las Mariposas. The Hermanas Mirabal were three sisters from the Dominican Republic, known commonly as Patria, Minerva and Maria Teresa. They opposed the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo and were involved in clandestine activities against his regime. Their assassinations turned the Mirabal sisters into symbols of feminist resistance. In 1999, in the sisters' honor, the United Nations General Assembly designated November 25th as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Fun fact: My husband is Hispanic and I can’t make homemade tortillas to save my life. That’s why I am so excited to be partnering with @krogerco
to celebrate #hispanicheritagemonth
! Thanks to Kroger I don’t have to make tortillas by hand. I can pick up soft tacos, tortilla chips, salsa, and anything else my heart and family desires! 🌮🥑 #sponsored
Today marks the official close of #NationalHispanicHeritageMonth
🎉Shout out to all of our Hispanic partners, friends and followers. Te vemos, te celebramos, te amamos. 💕
Give me ALLLL da greens! I went grocery shopping today so meal preps coming soon. 🤓 One of my secrets on enjoying healthy foods is adding salsa & lime to everything! & the salsa verde from Herdez is one of my favs! 😋 Maybe it’s an Hispanic thang, lol. Or who else does this? — Btw you can find it @krogerco
& you can go online to TuKroger.com for exclusive offers and recipe inspirations. Also, happy Hispanic Heritage Month! I love my culture. ☺️ #sponsored #hispanicheritagemonth
As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to a close, we remember the civil rights activists who fought for empowerment and recognition. There is still work to be done.

I didn't get to capture much of our month long celebration for #HispanicHeritageMonth
but we all enjoyed learning about the different customs and contributions of people from Cuba, DR, El Salvador, Mexico, Chile and many others. Our country study was on Guatemala and it was so fun! One of our community members' family is from Guatemala but he didn't know much about it. His mother came in and he was able to interpret to the class what she remembers from their country. Our school focuses on infusing the curriculum into our African history but we also believe in affirming all students of color. I learned so much and we made books about what we learned. I was not ready to read about Guatemala and Belize "beefing". We read that they had conflict but this really tickled me. I hope to do another Latin country study this year. #Guatemala #Belize #LatinxStudents #CountryStudy #ITeach2nd #NarrativeWriting
I was waiting for @leofreiremusic
to come into rehearsal last week (that’s why you hear random drums from the rehearsal room next door😅)and I found myself singing tons of random songs. I love Rancheras and Classic Latin Pop, and this song will always be one of my favorites. It reminds me so much of my grandmother Marina...she would play Rocio Durcal’s music around the house all the time when I was growing up...I love my craft in all of its facets, but TRUST ME. It is not easy. There is always something to work on. I always strive to be as good as I am or others are on record, but BABY, sometimes I can be pithy AF LOL At the end of the day, I hear it straight away and work with so many great talents to improve; whether it be pitch, breath control, agility, etc. All in all, honesty is what I have built my life on. Living and being open about my truth. For #HispanicHeritageMonth
here is a lil snippet of #AmorEterno

I just liked the way my booty looked in one of these pics 😎 lol but I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me. You mean the world to me and I’m thankful for you every day. Another awesome weekend down! Tons more to come! #EcuadorianQueen #hispanicheritagemonth #hispanicdayparade
One last note for Miami on the last day of Hispanic Heritage Month. The gateway to Latin America that has paved the way for hundreds of thousands of Hispanics to come to the U.S. What a pleasure to live in such a melting pot of cultures. This one’s for you Miami! 🌴🌞😎 #Miami
