Find your new home at Apartamentos.com

 This is a sponsored post, but opinions are my own. I have been living in an apartment for the past 3 years that is in the process of being sold, so I am on a mission looking for a new home. I’m so glad I spoke to a good friend who told me I could find everything I was looking for at Apartamentos.com. Please click on the link to view my experience in video pictures: https://flipagram.com/f/1ArcAzMAqAa Apartamentos.com is the nation’s only exclusive Spanish apartment-listing site, built and tailored to meet the needs of the rapidly growing Hispanic renter population.  Their app and site made it easy to find features that are most important to me like safety, easy access to down town public transportation because that is where most of my business events take place. Another important must before I consider moving into any building is that it be pet friendly, because I can’t leave my little dog “Pitipua” behind. I would love if it comes with a washer & dryer as well as a dishwasher. All of these items I could find and check off on Aparamentos.com during my apartment hunting search. Since I am determined to stay in the best possible shape and I’ve been able to do so by swimming, it was great to actually see the visuals of the pool of all the inventory Apartamentos.com. What would make my dream place to live is an amazing ocean view and of that they had many choices. I work from home so I’ll be spending much of my time there or within a close proximity of it, so it’s essential that I think this through and glad that Apartamentos.com is an effective and fun experience.

Tide® PODS™ + Downy® is Suavecito!

Tide® PODS™ + Downy® is Suavecito!

 Mi Gente this post is sponsored by P&G Tide® PODS™ + Downy®, but the review experience and opinions are mine! As my Mom’s caregiver, weekly priority responsibilities include washing her clothes, so I was delighted with this new assignment. I learned that Tide® PODS™ + Downy®, offers cleaning and protection from fading and stretching in the wash cycle protecting the cloths you care for. The best part is that you no longer need to worry about putting your favorite washable pieces together as the 3-chamber design a breakthrough in technology, making chemistries compatible in the liquid form and exist harmoniously in the packets, never achieved with liquid detergent. And you can enjoy the washing experience like I did, knowing that Tide® PODS™ + Downy®, is suitable for fabrics that traditionally cannot be washed with fabric softeners, but could benefit from conditioning, such as performance and fitness apparel. It is really easy to use by just placing the packet directly into the washing machine before you add clothes. It will dissolve in any temperature. Friendly reminder if you have small children, please keep it out of their reach in a safe area in your laundry. What I liked the most about using Tide® PODS™ + Downy®, was the pleasant aroma and softness of Mom’s clothes as well as mine. I also liked the packets’ simplistic use, instead of the liquid detergent.

I hope you learn from my mistake. Prepare today for your child’s future education, the future comes a lot quicker that you think.
