"Rosie the Riveter" is a cultural icon representing the American woman working during WWII. She symbolizes the strong, independent woman of that time. -- Now, more than 70 years later, the symbol stands as strong as she. I am proud to be a woman and am grateful for other brave women before me that endured the struggle of sexism and paved the equal path to our society today.

These are the confessions, lessons learned and experiences from my life. A single, independent, strong, young professional woman living in a busy Downtown city in Northern California.

Embracing my domesticity while enjoying the freedom of being perfectly lonely.

Give Away! - Papalote Salsa

This isn't your ordinary salsa people...this is the BEST salsa I've ever had in my life. So much, I buy it in bulk. But of course, like all my blogs, there is a story behind this.

About a month ago I was visiting family-friends in Santa Cruz, California. We randomly realized the local Whole Foods was throwing a customer appreciation celebration with tons of vendors, beer & food tasting, live music & some fun activities. That was a win for us & we probably spent the majority of the day there. It was awesome.

Even more awesome, one of the vendors happened to be Papalote Salsa. At the time, my friends & were like kids at Costco running for the free samples but this salsa hit me like a ton of bricks! I never believed in love at first site but after this, I believe in love at first taste! I was smitten by this salsa!!  Victor Escobedo, Chef & Restaurant owner of Papalote Mexican Grill in San Francisco, California was there telling us all about the salsa but happened to forget to mention how famous and successful he was. Modest Much?! Victor and his brother Miguel are Food Network Stars! They've battled Iron Chef Bobby Flay and have been on Chopped! (I'm a Food Network geek to the fullest.)

Anyway, after me being me and asking for more & more samples and raving about the salsa, Victor smiled and handed me a complimentary jar to take home with me. #WINNING! Seriously made my entire day. Oh, & the best part about this salsa? 100% all natural ingredients, gluten free, vegan & only 30 calories per serving!!

 I've been hooked ever since.
