Tuesday April 22nd is National Pay It Forward Day and to celebrate, Savings Bank Life Insurance Company have joined forces with the Pay It Forward Foundation to inspire people to create random acts of kindness. At 1:00 pm EST They will be hosting a twitter party using the hashtag#PayitFwdDay.
RSVP to the Twitter party here .
I am very honored to be co-hosting this wonderful party because I believe in creating a better world. It all starts with kindness and humanity to one another. And I can’t wait to learn more about this subject. It is important to teach your children these concepts when they are little, so when they grow up they will teach their children the same thing.
I remember a few years ago I was checking out at the supermarket with my then 8 month old. It was pouring rain and I didn’t have an umbrella on me. Since I was with my baby I waited outside in the shade until the rain passed. A lady went outside with her umbrella and proceeded to her car to store her groceries. She came back and said “I will take you to your car so your baby doesn’t get wet”. That act of random kindness is something I will never forget. A stranger helping another and is something that you don’t see everyday.
Prize: Five winners who answer trivia questions during the party will receive $50 VISA gift cards, and the Pay it Forward bracelet. This will happen at 1:00 pm EST on April 22nd. So don’t forget to RSVP. You could be the winner!.

truBLEND Foundation Review
Recognize that woman in the right wearing a white sweater applying makeup?. Well that’s me!. A couple of weeks ago I attended a media event with my fellow bloggers for Covergirl during the Hispanicize Conference.
In the Covergirl’s media event, the talented makeup artist Mariela Bagnato taught us how to find our truBlend Shade and gave us some HOT makeup tips that we can easily do at home that will make us look fabulous.
CoverGirl’s truBLEND Foundation is the newest and most coolest makeup ever. Why?. Well it’s because it’s water based so it’s lightweight and blends into your skin much more easily. truBLEND comes in 21 different shades divided in 3 big categories: Light (L), Medium (M) and Deep (D). The best way to test and find the right shade for you is to apply a little bit on your jawline instead on the palm of your hand. Since truBLEND becomes like second skin, more than a few shades may work for you.
If you are like me and wear foundation everyday, you know how how heavy it feels after a few hours. I’ve been personally using truBLEND for a couple of weeks and the best description I can give you is that is feels like a moisturizer not a foundation. I can wear throughout the day and forget I even have makeup on. And the great benefit is that is covers and makes your skin look beautiful.
I found my Blendover color!. It’s L3.. Click here to see which one are you. I just love this Covergirl’s truBLEND Foundation Review .
truBLEND liquid makeup is also great for your skin. Since the product is water based it won’t clog your pores like other foundations do. I asked makeup artist Mariela Bagnato about the difference between liquid and powder makeup and she replied that powder makeup is not good for your skin and it feels much heavier. So she recommends liquid makeup 100%.
All in all it was a wonderful experience that I will never forget. Thank you CoverGirl for hosting such a wonderful event.
2 lucky winners will EACH get 2 of the following products: Trumagic Balm (to eliminate shine), truBLEND Concealer stick and truBLEND liquid makeup in your shade!!. To enter simply follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter.
Giveaway ends 4/30. Good luck everybody!!

Tips to help your Baby Sleep thought the night
The first few weeks when I had my girls were a blur. Sleeplessness nights after sleepless night were getting to me. I was desperate. So I turned to my pediatrician and other moms tips & tricks and here’s the ones that worked for me.
Keep in mind that this tips are for helping your baby sleep LONGER and they should be at least 2-3 months old when you try them.
Personally the #1 reason that older babies don’t sleep through the night is because they can’t tell day from night. These 5 Tips to Help Your Baby Sleep Thought The Night work for you.
TIP #1: Do not bundle him during naps… Since baby needs to differentiate between day and night it is recommended that he naps in a well lit area, keep the TV on and do not bundle him. Simply cover with a receiving blanket. That way he learns that we stay awake during the day and sleep at night (eventually ). Also, speak to him during feeding. Try to establish contact so he’s more awake and alert.
TIP #2: Give him a Bath before Bedtime: A bath will help him relax and prepare for bedtime. After bath time breastfeed/bottle feed him and put him to bed. If possible, place baby in crib awake and let him self soothe to sleep instead of rocking him in your arms.
TIP #3: Create a Routine: Little babies work like a clock. If you feed him, bathe him and put him to sleep at the same time everyday they will know what to expect and physically respond to their routine. For instance, with my girls I used to put them to bed every night after their last feeding. At around 9 :00 pm. and tried to feed them at the same time everyday.
TIP #4: Swaddling. Babies sleep better when they are swaddled. Swaddling make them feel more secure.
TIP #5: Don’t speak during night feeding. The opposite of tip #1. When feeding your baby at night, do not turn the lights on. Use a nightlight and don’t speak or play with him. That way he knows that at night they eat and sleep. Night time is not play time!.
Finally, if you’re a tired new mom, there’s good news. Your baby will eventually sleep throughout the night. Some take longer than others. Cherish them when they are that little because they grow up so fast and in the blink of an eye you they are going to preschool.
