The official Latina Moms OC bloggers are more than just a group of women who live in Orange County – they’re a group of women who can provide tips on where to go for a kid-friendly meal, they offer their tips on navigating through the OC night life, and of course, they tell you which products are really worth the money, which events are super fun for everybody in the family, and which movies you should be watching. They’re the amigas you want to have in your corner.

Most recently, Pattie and her family were featured in a “8 Tips for the Perfect Beach Day” video for Visit California.
Alma is a Latina mami who loves taking her growing brood of five under nine on adventures. She enjoys finding good deals and sharing them. There’s a saying in Spanish many use to describe her, “lo que no sabes, te lo inventas” roughly translated to “what you don’t know, you will figure out.” Glad to help other mamis find fun things to do as a family.
