Episode 205: Event Planning 101 with Evelyn Jimenez of @HarlowPlanning

2019SMS051119_434.jpg

Time for a new episode! This week we talk to Evelyn Jimenez of Harlow Planning. Now a major part of team Super Mamas (she turns our SM Social dreams into reality ✨), she was one of our first guests on the show and now she’s back with updates. Evelyn talks about how she made the jump from corporate life to running her event company full time and how you need to be confident & relentless when it comes to following your dreams. Plus she shares tips on how to throw your own event!

Before the interview, we talk about how summer is winding down but we still have lots of plans. Paulina is working out everyday and Bricia has a trip to Baja this weekend. Also, the book is coming out in just a few months and you can pre-order it on Target, Amazon and Barnes & Noble now! Screenshot your pre-orders and tag us on Instagram - you know we love and appreciate your support! 😝

Pick or Tip of the Week

Paulina’s tip is to pack ahead of time for a trip. When she was getting ready to leave to Oaxaca, she realized she normally leaves packing to the last minute, but for this trip she started packing a few days early and packed her essentials like deodorant + makeup right before she left. It helped her feel a lot less stressed, especially since she was traveling with the baby.

Bricia’s tip is loving Babe Waves Hair Waving Iron from theproductjunkie.com. She has the straightest hair, but this wand gives her mermaid hair. It’s not beach waves, but mermaid hair. It takes a while but it has a really good tutorial and she is obsessed! Also, please pre-order the book. 🙏🏽

Episode 204: From Mall Punk to Jefa Life with Patty Delgado of @hijadetumadre

August is here and we have a new episode for you! This week we interview Patty Delgado of Hija de tu Madre. She’s a plant-mom 🌿 who created Hija de tu Madre to be a safe space that is empowering and represents latino culture. Patty talks to us about how she created her lifestyle brand, how hard it can be to build a team & work with different personalities, and her support system that is her parents & the Jefas Crew.  

Before the interview, Paulina is talking about how excited she is to be in Oaxaca right now (yes, we pre-recorded this intro 😬) and both mamas remember how they used to perform at the Guelaguetza in Oaxaca. We’re also talking about the new lingo that we learned during our interview with Patty. 😂 #mallPunk #mallChola

Pick or Tip of the Week

Bricia’s recommendation this week is a massage ball. She’s been using a GoFit 5 inch Massage Ball - Muscle Pain Management. There’s so many different options on Amazon and honestly it’s like an at home massage. 

Paulina’s pick this week is Hugh Spa in Koreatown, Los Angeles. She got a 30 minute scrub and a one hour massage where the woman got on top of her and was stepping on her, kneeing her, elbowing her - it was the best massage she had in a long time AND it was only $100. The spa is women only, very mellow and different from other Korean spas, but she is definitely making this a monthly thing.

Episode 202: The Benefits & Frustrations of Being Bilingual with Lizet Alvarez of @chiquisocial

Hey super mamas, we’re back with another new episode! This week we’re interviewing Lizet Alvarez of Chiqui Social. She’s talking about how she created the bilingual social club & event space that is Chiqui Social, the courage & dedication it takes to work on your passion project (spoiler alert: it’s not easy), and the shame that some latinos receive for not speaking Spanish. Lizet is also sharing great tips for practicing Spanish with your kids at home, and we know we’ll be putting our kids to work!

Before the interview, we talk about our favorite time of the year - summer! Paulina’s life has been super chill & easy lately since her husband is working a lot and Krista & Sabina are in Mexico. She’s had a lot of extra time for self-care but she’s really missing her family time. Bricia’s husband was also out of town this weekend so she took her son to Disney’s California Adventure, went swimming and played super smash brothers. Both super mamas are loving this summer and are soaking it all in!

Pick or Tip of the Week

Sorry team tampon, Paulina’s pick is for all the pad lovers. #padsquad 😆 This is pad you’ve been searching for. They’re from the Honey Pot Company and they’re made with cotton & essential oils. It’s been helping her feel fresh, clean, and this is the first time she’s actually enjoying the smell. 😂

She also has an extra tip this week! Her sister, Elizabeth, introduced her to a podcast called Sex with Emily. It’s all about sex, relationships and more, so definitely don’t listen to it around the kids. The podcast mentions the vibrator, Moxie by We-Vibe, which is controlled via Bluetooth and is now on Paulina’s birthday wish list. 

Bricia has an anti-tip this week and wants suggestions from you! She bought a new booster seat for her son, but every time he naps in the car, his head falls forward. She bought him a neck pillow which works because it keeps his neck upright but then he folds over (check out the picture below). There’s also those weird headband things to hold his head back but her son thinks “it’s too silly” so that’s not really an option.

What’s your favorite product out there for this problem, mamas? Please send us your suggestions, tips, hacks, inventions - we want to know!
