Everyday Make-up in 6 Easy Steps

Elf Cosmetics at Target

The older I get, the less make-up I wear and it’s not because I’m too lazy to wear it or because I don’t like it. I love make-up. I use it to enhance my attributes, not to hide my perceived flaws. I can do everyday make-up in 6 easy steps. You could say that when […]

Wipes Should be Wet, Diapers Should Keep Me Dry #HuggiesLatino

by Claudya Martinez September 10, 2012
Huggies Natural Care Wipes

Reflecting on the teleconference I participated in with Poncho de Anda, I have to laugh at myself because if you would have told me in my early 20’s or even early 30’s that I would enjoy a conversation about parenting that veers into talking about diapers and wipes, I would have told you, you were […]

                I became a mother on September 8, 2008. This weekend Put Pie turned 4! San Francisco, CA.     I showed you mine, now show me yours. Share your city/town/suburb/you name it! Think of this as a photography carnival or photography meme (with or without words) that […]

Questions (Fragmented Fridays)

Questions-unknownmami

Is there such a thing as clean coal? I just can’t seem to wrap my mind around that concept. I wanted to share Jimmy Kimmel’s most recent prank challenge about getting kids horrible back to school outfits, but the video has been pulled from Hulu and Youtube. Why? What happened to my brain? I used […]

Bedtime Routine Revamped #Positivismo

by Claudya Martinez September 6, 2012
Sleeping Children

Would you like to know what the least favorite part of my day is? Just say yes because I’m going to tell you anyway. Bedtime. Bedtime is the least favorite part of my day. Specifically my daughters’ bedtime. It’s not that I can’t stand to have them go to bed and will miss them horribly. […]

What Are You Waiting For?

by Claudya Martinez September 5, 2012
An old bench

    There must have been a time when this bench waited expectantly. Waited for someone to come and sit awhile. Waited for impatient children to wiggle and giggle. Waited for lovers to snuggle and kiss. Waited for tired men down on their luck to lay and rest. Those days are gone. The bench got […]

Yelling Parent: My Daughter Called Me Out

Mark-Twain-quote-about-his-father

I maybe sometimes loose my temper and morph into an atrocious monster that can only be described as a YELLING PARENT! Worst of all is that maybe sometimes I don’t even notice until… Put Pie: Mama, I no like it when you yell at me. Unknown Mami: I’m sorry. Put Pie: It makes me feel […]

My Tea with Kristi Yamaguchi

Kristi-Yamaguchi-unknownmami

Last week I had the pleasure of joining Kristi Yamaguchi for tea at Lealand Tea in San Francisco. I’m not gonna lie I was a tad nervous, it’s not every day that I get to sip tea and nibble on crustless-sandwiches with an Olympic gold medalist. Fortunately, all nerves subsided when I was greeted with […]

Wallspace SF (Sundays In My City)

by Claudya Martinez September 1, 2012
Wallspace

          Walking down Polk Street, killing time before an appointment on a grey day, I see the pop of color in my periferal vision as I cross Austin Street. Vibrant art covers what would otherwise be boring walls and the street turns into an open-air art gallery. The space for artists […]

In My Bloggy World (Fragmented Fridays)

by Claudya Martinez August 31, 2012

Blogging is a regular part of my life and although commonplace for me, there are people out there that just don’t get it. They don’t get the point of blogging, they don’t really understand what blogging is, or they think blogging is sooo 10 years ago. Little do these people realize that blogging is not […]
