2017 is just a few days away, and I couldn’t be more excited to be done with 2016 because 2016 turned out to be that girl I knew she was.
I’m sitting here listening to Paquita la del Barrio belt out “Rata de Dos Patas”, which basically describes 2016 if it were a person and also that orange thing.
Escoria de la vida
Adefesio mal hecho
Espectro del infierno
Cuanto daño me has hecho”…
I had been toying with the idea to launch this blog in 2015 and Billy finally pushed me to do it, and I’m extremely glad I did. I’ve gotten to meet a bunch of new businesses, groups, podcasts, and personalities in the Latinx community that I would have never met otherwise.
If you’re like me and you love storytelling and talk radio, give these socially conscious Latinx podcasts a listen:
I began my professional PR & Marketing career with the Small Business Development Center, so it is important for me to support local/small/brown businesses because I’ve had the opportunity to help further others’ dreams of owning their own business, and I know how much it means to them. Check out these Latinx businesses:
I’m excited to travel and hopefully meet some of these new friends I’ve made (Hey Chicago, I see you girl!) and I’m also very excited to be heading back to Colima in March for my birthday!
My friend Jorge suggested I have all you chulxs submit recipes you grew up with and I think that’s a great idea, so I’ll be incorporating that into the blog.
The other day when I was making tamales, I accidentally made a little too much meat, so I decided to make them into torta sliders that are very reminiscent of tortas ahogadas. If you’re looking to fill a spot for a last minute appetizer for this weekend, look no further.
I hope all of you have a great new years eve/new years celebration y nos vemos en 2017!
