Mis Amigitos...Even the Muppets love Latinos

Que chula (what a cutie), that darn Miss Piggy!


Did you know that this is Hispanic Heritage Month?  It started September 15 and runs through October 15.

According to the 2010 Census, 50.5 million people or 16% of the population are of Hispanic or Latino origin. This represents a significant increase from the 2000 Census, which registered the Hispanic population at 35.3 million or 13% of the total U.S. population. (Fact Monster)

Did you know that The United States population of Hispanic has a serious buying power in excess of $1 trillion, making Latinos a demographic capable of shaping the nation’s future economic and marketing trajectory, (“Latino Shoppers: Demographic Patterns and Spending Trends Among Hispanic Americans, 8th Edition,” by Packaged Facts). Hispanic buying power is projected to reach $1.3 trillion in 2015, a cumulative increase of around 25% (Marketing)

What does this mean? It means we RUN SH*T! Just kidding, in all seriousness what this means is that it is OUR TIME!  It is our time to be active, to get smarter and to demand what we want.  $1.3 Trillion is not Million or Billion even, it is SERIOUS Trillion.  What will I continue doing, you may ask? I will continue to strive to be the best ME I can be.  Always respect who I am and where I come from.  And I will continue to grow and make a positive change in this world (no matter how BIG or small). I encourage you to do the same. Capitalize on YOU!


The Black Hat

I had dinner at Philippe Chow the other night and was in the mood to be mysteriosa (mysterious).  Ok, not really but I did really want to wear My Black Hat.  So I did! I wasn't feeling 100% so it gave me comfort, covered up a bad hair day and simply adds style.  I paired it with a dark Navy blazer and fun Leopard booties.  Check it out.
