Favorite Latin food you can’t live without
I can’t live without my arroz. I might be able to eat a few meals without it, but then I feel I haven’t eaten REAL food in a while and go back to my arrocito.

What is your Latina contradiction?
Even though I love to cook and I also enjoy eating Latin foods, I really like the simpleness of American food and find myself making it more often than I realize.

When you think of Latin culture what are the first words you think of?
Sabor, calidez/ Flavor, warmness

What is your ethnicity? Or where is your family from?
I was born in Ecuador and came to the US when I was 14.

Latina? American? Both?
I feel Latina, I think Latina and I behave Latina but I am an American citizen and I love it. Even though I love Ecuador, I must say this country is truly the land of opportunity and I love living here.

Favorite Latin artist or music?
Thanks to my dad, I can really say I like a little bit of everything. He used to play music on his stereo all day and thanks to that I enjoy all types of music, from Luis Miguel to José José to Juanes, Maná and Chino y Nacho.

iPhone, Android or BlackBerry?
iPhone, of course!

How do you describe your style?
With two kids (soon to be three) as much as I love heels and nice clothes I have to say I look for comfort most of the time. But that doesn’t mean I like to look frumpy, _no señor_, I am a Latina, remember? Just for the sake of trying to describe my style, I’ll say I’m a mix of a modern and feminine bohemian (is that even possible?)

What media in English and/or Spanish do you prefer/consume, as in what magazines, newspapers, TV shows, etc?
I know my blog is in Spanish, we speak Spanish all day at home and I even work writing articles in Spanish but I really enjoy reading magazines and watching TV in English (when I find one of those rare quiet moments). I feel it’s a way to keep myself connected to American culture.

Tip from my savings blog, Ahorros para Mamá:
If you want to start saving money, either by using coupons, by spending less, or both, take the first step and start right now. Don’t wait one more day.
