Strengthening ourselves with Janine!

Posted by Grecia Sanchez on February 3, 2016 at 12:56pm 0 Comments

Hi Latinas! On our previous event: Healthy Chica, we had a bunch of activities done to improve our physical and mental health. We had a lot of panelists and important health guests coming that did an amazing job on each of their areas. One of the activities which were done at El Paso First was Meditation and Tai Chi. We were amazed by the advices of Janine Gallinar, who introduced us to these oriental techniques.



During the session, we first sat on a comfortable way to get us ready… Continue

Healthy Chica

Posted by Gabby on February 4, 2016 at 3:43pm 0 Comments

A few days ago we had our Healthy Chica event, it was my first time attending to one and I can say it was a total success. I walked out learning so many  things, and being inspired by so many Latinas who provided information at the event. 

We started with Yoga, some of the positions looked relaxing, and in a way like if you would stretch your muscles. Which for my opinion that relaxes the bones in so many ways. I can say that the flexibility of the trainers and how important breathing…

ESL Students

Posted by Gabby on February 5, 2016 at 12:47pm 0 Comments

A lot of bilingual students are ashamed when it comes to being an ESL student. Which it represents English as a Second Language here in America. Which it is perfectly okay, because one language you use it on your outside activities, such as at home, friends, your personal life, and however you want to use it. As a difference when you talk English when it comes to school and doing professional activities, such as working, talking to professors.

A lot of students are shy due to this,…

More Latinas in movie theaters than in movies

Posted by Grecia Sanchez on February 6, 2016 at 4:27pm 0 Comments

“I get into this business and I'm like ‘Oh my God, you guys are totally racist, this is so absurd, this is so stupid!’ And I just couldn't believe it”-- said Academy and Emmy nominee Rosie Perez at Larry King Now interview.



Hello Latinitas! When we go to the movies, we don't always expect to see a Hispanic movie, not even Hispanic actors on the best-sellers of that week. Well, many Latinas out there are protesting big time about this issue that's been a reality in Hollywood movies…

A good night of sleep

Posted by Kenia Guerrero on February 4, 2016 at 11:54am 0 Comments

It's been a while since I've written anything in here but the thing is yesterday I had an anxiety meltdown, I don't know where are things in my life going, and I thought well maybe I'm not the only one going through this and so I decided to share it.



I’ve always been an over thinker, I knew what I wanted to do with my life since I was 12, with this I don’t mean that my plans are exactly the same from back then, I mean I like planning things, and when things don’t go as expected…

Becoming healthy since yesterday!

Posted by Grecia Sanchez on February 1, 2016 at 12:50pm 0 Comments

I was amazed yesterday by Latinitas event: #HealthyChica!

It all started with a slice of yoga: what is it about, what advantages it makes to your body and the different positions and its benefits to whatever you are going through. It is amazing the way yoga teaches you how to love yourself and your body (by the way, I am really thinking about making it a habit starting now!). Then we heard a little about how to make a healthy plate all by yourself, we did an activity which I loved: it was… Continue

I was enjoying some delicious pancakes from IHOP, the cheesecake pancakes, they have like mini cheesecake bites inside with strawberries on top, they are my favorite,if you ladies haven't tried them, ITS A MUST!

I realized I was sitting on the right side of the restaurant, no one in-front of me, no one…

Barbie's New Faces

Posted by Gabby on January 28, 2016 at 4:48pm 0 Comments

For years we have seen how the Barbie's evolution has changed every girls game, from the classical, tall, blonde hair, blue eyed model looking doll, to the fancy sports cars they have produced. So growing up with the mentality of having to look like that has been girls dreams for years. I know I imagined Barbie's life so perfect, a nice job, beautiful face, probably with the handsome tall beach looking guy. As I grew older, I came to realize like almost everyone that it was all part of my…

Valentine's Day Tradition

Posted by Gabby on January 29, 2016 at 12:06pm 0 Comments

When people talk about Valentine’s Day, one thing that comes to mind is spending time with your love one, but for one thing you can be too young to have someone you love. Giving out Valentine cards to your classmates is always sweet, it can be the simple princess ones that say how beautiful you are and for you to have a wonderful day, or it can also be just a simple heart shaped lollipop saying have a nice day. Some young girls like to give their best friends a cute stuffed animal, others…

Barbie Petite

I'm really happy to know that the company that makes the Barbie dolls were more open to the different body types and sizes of their dolls. I think that our society is having now a more open idea of the real role models that our future generations are going to be looking at. Since now teens and girls are interested at other things, Barbie was little by little left aside. Also, there are tons of different dolls that caught the attention and think that Barbie was always the same and had that…See More
