Little lessons from a Latin mother.
  1. Stay out of the sun you will wrinkle!
    Usually while lathering me in 50 spf sunblock. I'm grateful for this one bc this face is holding off wrinkles like a champ. 😜
  2. Never leave the house without earrings.
    I've had my ears pierced since I was 3 days old. Apparently earring always make you more presentable?
  3. Don't leave the house without putting on your face on first and if you don't put on mascara you basically didn't put on makeup
    Goes hand in hand with the earrings.
  4. There is a difference between sexy and slutty. Learn it!
  5. You're not lost you just don't know where you are.
    Never got the logic but we were on an island so I guess it could make sense.
  6. The words to a song don't matter as long as you sing with feeling.
    This also applied to singing Christmas carols in July.
  7. How to make rice.
    In a caldero people not in a rice cooker!
  8. To dance like no one is watching.
    Salsa in the kitchen or jumping on the bed to Pat Benatar. It was all good.
