Giving Guide For Giving Tuesday Ideas

After Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday.  Giving Tuesday is a great way to support local & national nonprofits during the Christmas Holidays by giving back to nonprofits that are making a difference to our local and global communities.  The  nationwide philanthropic event will be as huge  of a success for nonprofits as Cyber Monday and brings together families, communities and nonprofits.

My family celebrates giving everyday by giving back  to local charities and making contributions to multiple nonprofits. It has been a way of life for us since childhood.   Giving Tuesday is driven through social media and is a global effort to highlight the importance of giving.  Last year the initiative raised over 10 million dollars for charity.

If you are a parent, this is also a great way to share the gift of giving globally with your children.

Guide To Celebrate and Participate in #GivingTuesday

LATINAS THINK BIG NATIONAL TOUR

I was raised by the hardest working Latina entrepreneur on the planet.  She  baked and sold the most beautiful wedding, birthday and quinceañera cakes.  My mom also launched several home-based businesses selling hand-made crafts,  jewelry, Tupperware, Shaklee, Avon, Mary Kay, Home Interior, Princess House and managed to find the time to raise a family and help people in need in our community.   During the holidays she would make tamales  to share and for school fundraising.  Her drive and passion for entrepreneurship and social good lifestyle was passed on to my siblings and I.  As a child I use to watch her carry a notebook with lots of lists and wondered how to automate a lot of her administrative tasks of  setting up appointments, billing and collecting money.  I believe that is why I chose a career in Software Development & Engineering and I still code to automate a lot of my day to day technical tasks as a Telecommunications Engineer.

Today’s entrepreneurial Latina is a lot like yesterday’s savvy business woman, except we have a lot of tools at out disposal to automate and facilitate day to day tasks and enable us to focus on our goals.   Today’s Latina is entrepreneurial and Tech Savvy.  However, before many of us take the leap of faith to launch on our own or  to further our career path, we need  resources to help us build our networks and connect with like minded goal seekers.  We also need to sharpen our skills and  find communities with a solid foundation and support system.

 

ELLA Leadership Institute was born out of  similar drive and passion that is instilled in all hardworking and goal seeking Latinas.   ELLA Leadership Institute recently launched the  LATINAS THINK BIG™ national tour to inspire and showcase Latinas who are making a difference.     The second stop of a national and international TED-style tour showcasing innovative professional Latinas will be held on October 11.   I’m  really excited to attend the event and support the ELLA Institute initiatives as a Twitter Ambassador.  I will be joining over 150 attendees to connect  and celebrate Latinas who are breaking new ground.  I’m looking forward to the featured speakers and discussions about careers, business, entrepreneurship and innovation.   Whether you are planning on launching a business or need a word of encouragement from Latinas in Leadership, LATINAS THINK BIG event is for YOU.

The onsite event has SOLD-OUT.  However, you can join the conversation online via Google hangouts and Twitter and be a part of the life-changing virtual event.  I had the opportunity to join the historic LATINAS THINK BIG launch online and  felt like I had the best seats in the house.  I walked away with a lot of resources and inspiration to develop a business idea.   I also felt the presence of a sense of community among the attendees.

The Los Angeles tour was a historical event  and attended by over 100 empowered Latinas, including ten TWITTER AMBASSADORS.

Los Angeles Food Event: LA Times The Taste

Mark your calendars for Labor Day weekend 2013!  The Los Angeles Times, The Taste Food and Wine event is scheduled for August 30-September 1.  If you are a food enthusiasts, I definitely recommend this event.  The best part about LA Times The Taste is the fact that you can enjoy over 100 food and spirits under one roof.

The event will feature five food events, top celebrity chefs, food columnist, top chefs and local restaurants.  In addition to food, the highly acclaimed event will also feature local bartenders and chefs from Southern California food scene.

I have attended the event and always walk away with a list of many favorite restaurants to visit.   It truly is the best way to taste Los Angeles area cuisine.  If this is your first time, I’d recommend the Field to Fork event which features local area sustainable food tasting, food preparation demonstrations and wine pairing class.   The event is made for foodies and home cooks.

If you want to make it a day trip, I recommend you also purchase a ticket for The Flavors of LA. The evening will feature the areas best cuisines, so you will want to make sure to attend at least two events.   If you are a foodie at heart like myself, I recommend you purchase tickets in advance to all the events you want to attend, book  a local hotel, take UBER  to the event.   The Los Angekes Food and Wine Event of the Year will feature five food events to choose from.  Check the details below for  a complete list of participating restaurants.

I can’t pick one particular event I prefer out of all the events because they are all include tastings from the areas best restaurants.  Tickets for the weekend pass have already sold-out!  Make sure to purchase your tickets so you don’t miss out.

Ford Trends – Go Further With Ford Conference 2013

I had the opportunity to attend the Further With Ford  ‪#‎FordTrends‬ 2013 Event & Conference in Detroit, Michigan.  Ford brought together 200 of the nations thought leaders, media and influencers to discuss 13 Trends of 2013, focusing on  five key trends: Disrupting the Drive, Greentopia, Returning to Your Senses, Sculpting the Future and Trust Is the New Black.  

It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to get an insiders look at the Ford culture and innovation.  Ford shared how they bring value and innovation to product design by focusing on the relationship with the consumer and the importance that trust has in the success of a company.  Ford  also gave us a sneak peek to test equipment, partnerships they are working on to improve sustainability and a first hand look at car prototypes of the future. I’m very excited about the way Ford is integrating technology into their product testing & development to make the vehicles of the future almost human-like.  Can you imagine a car of the future sensing your mood and modifying the climate in the car based on it’s interpretations? It’s going to happen!

One of the things I also liked about the Ford Trends conference is that I was able  to reconnect with fellow bloggers and influencers.  Ford Trends conferences provided the forum to learn, network and  partner with fellow bloggers on the test drives and sessions. 

 

Top Five Highlights at Go Further With Ford — Ford Trends 2013 Conference

Visiting the Henry Ford Museum. I was able to learn about Henry Ford’s innovation and legacy.  There are many Ford vehicles, including the Model T and several Presidential cars.  I was also able to sit in the restored Rosa Park’s bus which inaugurated the civil rights movement.  The Ford museum acquired the bus in 2001 after outbidding the Smithsonian Institute with a winning bid of $427, 919.  After doing a little more research, I also learned I sat in Rosa Park’s historic seat.

Meeting Apple Computer CoFounder and Philantropist, Steve Wozniak,  was definitely a lifetime highlight for me.  As an Engineer, I have always admired his innovation.  Steve Wozniak is credited for being the main designer of the first Apple computers. Steve Wozniak also intrigued us with his input on how technology is being integrated into the cars of the future.

We also toured the city of Detroit and participated in various Ford car test driving expeditions and had the opportunity to preview the Ford concept Atlas truck.  The car is futuristic and perfect for a man that loves big trucks with a little edge.  I learned to drive the Fusion Energi efficiently and also tested tried to drive the Ford Fusion around the track in 40 seconds.  I definitely would recommend the Fusion Energi to drivers that are looking for an earth friendly economical vehicle.

 

We celebrated the 50th birthday of the Ford Mustang, my favorite Ford vehicle! Happy Birthday Mustang.  Wishing you another 50 years of success! Ford launched a cool Youtube channel to celebrate 50th anniversary of the Mustang. Watch the Ford Mustang countdown on Youtube by clicking the link.

 

The most memorable part of the conference were the speakers. One of my favorite presentations was the Returning to Your Senses session by Google’s Jenny Lyyken and her discussion on personal choices that attribute to our health, happiness and work balance.  It definitely left a big impression on me and was a great reminder to be a compassionate leader in the workplace.

 

The 13 Trends to follow in 2013 video presentations are also available on Youtube.  If you have the time, I would recommend you watch them or at  least one presentation.

Question:   What was your favorite session at the Ford Trends conference?  What was your biggest takeaway from your favorite session.

Villa Metro Community Grand Opening

Disclaimer:  This is a sponsored post.  However, all opinions are my own.

 

Do you enjoy touring model homes?  I certainly do!  The New Home Company, Villa Metro is a new community of 315 homes featuring contemporary Mediterranean-inspired architecture and sustainable building practices.  The small-town vibe master planned community is located in Santa Clarita Valley and has several amenities including parks, 30 miles of walking trails, recreational gym facilities and easy access to Southern California’s regional rail network, Metrolink.  

Buying a home to raise a family is one of the most important decisions a couple makes.  Villa Metro provides several home buying options to help young families make home buying decisions to meet their family needs.  In addition to the 9 model homes, the community features top notch schools, access to shopping on Main Street, a family friendly pool and tot lot.   Picture your family playing in the park, swimming at the pool, or hiking the walking trails. 

 

Join us on Saturday, August 17, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., as we celebrate and showcase the model community in true Southern California fashion – with food, fun, giveaways and prizes.  Tour  the 9 model homes and see if a  home suits your family needs.   In addition to model home tours, the mediterranean street fair will feature live music, face painting, kids crafts and many Greek-inspired bites and refreshments.  There will also be several giveaway! I’m looking forward to celebrating the addition of this community under the sun.

So come on out and bring the kids and experience what life feels like in #Awesometown.

Question:  What is the most important feature you look for when  buying a home? 

 

Californian Millennials Love The Ford Fiesta

The Ford Fiesta 2014 is a cute little car packed with lots of fun for the young at heart.  Millennials are beginning to enter the market choosing the Fiesta 30% more over the competition.  California seems to love this line of vehicles as well, selecting it 22% more times among the Scion, Fit, Yaris, and Versa.  Available at 41mpg highway fuel efficiency, it makes sense why millennials in California are drawn to the Ford Fiesta.

Earlier in the week I met this colorful bunch at the Ford event in Santa Monica.  We drove up the scenic beachside Pacific Coast highway looping around the curvaceous Mulholland Drive.  The technology in the 2014 vehicle has been simplified from later versions making it friendlier to all users.  It wasn’t dark enough for me to enjoy the ambient lighting, but I heard it’s an attractive feature.  Music lovers would appreciate the 8 speakers that surround the interior of this small car.  Thank goodness for My Key technology — parents can cap the volume level!

If you are planning on purchasing a car for your millennial, I would encourage you to test drive the Ford Fiesta.  Its compact size makes it easier to get around town without “elbowing” through traffic and narrow parking lots, which is ideal for new drivers.  Plus, it has a friendly sticker price!  Now what’s not to love about that?

Ford EcoBoost Challenge in Pasadena, California

#Ford Escape #ecoboostchallenge #pasadena via ...

#Ford Escape #ecoboostchallenge #pasadena via catalinainla

Have a need for speed?  I got my fix the other day during the Ford EcoBoost Challenge at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.  It was part of their 13-city tour across the nation where Ford challenges drivers to put their cars up to the test with their competitors.  Bold move Ford.

Since I don’t know how to drive a manual transmission, I took 2 loops around the Performance Academy Track in a Focus ST with a professional racecar driver.  Can you say, WAHOOOO?!!!  (By the way, thanks for the new hairdo.)  I fell in-love with this spunky little car for its smooth comfortable ride and great torque.  The Focus ST took command of the road as we sped along the track, hugging each corner tightly with ease.  I was equally impressed with its ability to pick-up speed.  This engineering comes from the 2.0L EcoBoost engine paired with a 270lb peak torque and 252 horsepower.

#Ford #ecoboostchallenge #pasadena via catalin...

#Ford #ecoboostchallenge #pasadena via catalinainla

Following the Focus ST thrill ride, I smoothed my hair down while strolling over to the EcoBoost Challenge.  All four cars I drove in this round were automatic, so I drove myself.  First off was the Honda CR-V, which was okay.  It struggled to wrap the corners and it had a sluggish acceleration.  Then I slipped into the 2014 Escape – it was without a doubt a much better ride.  Again I noted similar results when driving the Toyota and comparing it to the 2013 Fusion.  Out of all four cars tested, I enjoyed the 2013 Fusion for its ability to hug cornerners unlike the larger profile vehicles.  Clearly, I love smaller cars – with fabulous torque!

Moving on to the Hypermile Challenge, I sat behind the wheel of the incredibly quiet C-Max Hybrid. Vroom, vroom?  Fuel efficiency is high on my “must have” list.  Unfortunately some hybrids still don’t measure up to the strength that its gas loving counterparts excel in.  As with the other vehicles, the EcoBoost technology is the same in the C-Max Hybrid giving it an added bonus of fuel efficiency with a 47 MPG city/hwy.  Wow!

The Ford EcoBoost Challenge is open to the public for FREE!  All drivers have to do is sign-up, here.  Below is a list of the next Ford EcoBoost Challenge:

• August 17 – New York City, Citi Field
• August 24 – Charlotte, Charlotte Motor Speedway
• September 7 – Atlanta, Turner Field
• September 7 – Dallas, Cowboys Stadium
• September 14 – Orlando, Orange County Convention Center
• September 14 – Houston, Sam Houston Race Park
• September 21 – Miami, Gulfstream Park
• September 21 – Minneapolis/St. Paul, Canterbury Park

Put the pedal to the metal and have fun!!

Events: Celebrating Latin Culture, Music and Food With Sabor De Lujo #VidaLexus

Lexus invited me to the Sabor de Lujo event in Los Angeles which paired some of L.A.’s favorite Latin food, art & music.     The annual Lexus event,  created a unique culinary experience that recognized Latino culture, delicious latin folavors  from around the world and live art.  The event also showcased some of the foods of Mexico, Peru and Argentina with restaurants such as Diablo Taco, Ushuaia Argentinian Steak House, Mas Malo, and Qusqo.   There’s no better way to celebrate Los Angeles night life than a satisfying evening in the heart of LA with art, music, food and desserts.  It’s great to see Lexus supporting the arts scene in Los Angeles.

Guests also had the opportunity to experience the Lexus art project,  “Art Galleries & Back Alleys,” an inspirational art piece that carries the signature styles of internationally renowned aerosol artist Jaime “Vyal” Reyes and award-winning iconic artist Patssi Valdez.  The masterpiece was created using Lexus CT 200h as a canvas to convey a story about art, innovation, and modern luxury.

The event also featured a special live mural experience, where aerosol artist Jaime “Vyal” Reyes created an art piece that will serve as an extension to “Art Galleries & Back Alleys.”  The finished work of art embodies the spirit of the Latino art culture.  A breath taking masterpiece!

Lexus also debuted a sneak peek at the redesigned 2014 Lexus IS 350  luxury vehicle with an App Suite and launch apps like Bing, Pandora, and Yelp.


One of the highlights of the evening was the Candy station and dessert bar created by the Hollywood Candy Girls.

The candy station included delicious Hispanic candies & treats that included Dulce de leche, Mangos with chile, Sugared Pineapples,  Arcoiris cookies and more mouthwatering treats.

Latin Music and entertainment was provided by the beautiful and talented Los Angeles DJ Lezlee.
