    I love holiday traditions and try to share cultural traditions with my children from my own childhood. But, some traditions are born with new generations and my daughter has started a new Christmas tradition of her own. For the past two years, she’s asked for new holiday or winter pajamas she can wear on Christmas Eve. It’s simple, but super cute. This year, she brought the whole family in on her tradition, wishing to find holiday pajamas for all of us! Check out the fun holiday sleepwear we found at Walmart, all under $40!

    This year Univision has become more than a partner to the #LATISM Familia.  They have become our heroes.  The first ones to bring 100% attention to the human crisis taking place in the border.  The pioneers who gave a voice to the Dreamers at all times even before they became cool.  Univision has confronted Obama on his Immigration broken promise until action was taken.  During #LATISM14, Univision held to core conversation by bringing together the top organizations that are playing key roles in serving our kids with their basic needs.  The Partnering Por Los Niños Lunch was the…

    If you’re looking for a fun, action toy for your children, consider the Air Storm Firetek Bow! They will be happy to take aim and blast their target with the light-up foam arrows, helping them feel like a master archer. I got to see the Firetek Bow in action a couple of months back during a trip to the Walmart home office and was impressed by the distance the arrows traveled! We received our own Air Storm Firetek Bow to check out and I know both my kids will be excited when they open up this gift for Christmas!

If you’re looking for a mobile device to gift this holiday season, consider purchasing a Straight Talk phone and service plan! Let me share a few reasons why it’s a good option.

    As my baby girl enters her “tween” years (gasp!), she has shown an interest in using perfume. Mostly, she occasionally borrows a little of my perfume, but I’ve been thinking about getting her a perfume of her own. I don’t wish for her to use a strong fragrance, nor do I want to buy a $60 perfume for her, so I was happy to come across the Holiday Fragrance Gift Center at Walmart.com which features a fun fragrance quiz and $4 coupon! Read on for more info on the Beyoncé fragrance set I received as a sample, plus how you too can save money on your holiday fragrance…
