I’ve adored Greg Louganis since forever. He’s 56 and I’ll turn 56 next week. I’m a frustrated diver and he’s the greatest male diver in history. I was lucky enough to shake hands with him back in August 1983. I was an intern in a major Venezuelan newspaper covering the Pan American Games. I was assigned to cover fencing at the Academia Militar gym. But I managed to make it to the diving pool at Parque Naciones Unidas, in the opposite extreme of Caracas.

Iced Coffee to Break the Routine (VIDEO)

Iced Coffee to Break The Routine is sponsored by NESCAFÉ© Clásico™
Thank you for supporting the brands that Savoir Faire works with, 
so I can continue developing fun, colorful and tasty recipes.

Iced coffee to break the routine. As I write this post, I'm having a delicious NESCAFÉ© Clásico™ granita. I fell in love with iced coffee, back in the time I was a grad student in New York City. So, occasionally, to break the routine in the middle of the afternoon I have my iced coffee, or like today, I woke up having iced coffee instead of my regular cappuccino.

How to build win-win relationships between brands and influencers

Today I had the amazing opportunity of being part of the Content and New Media panel discussing How to Find, Engage and Collaborate with Influential Bloggers, as part of The Public Relations Society of America 2016 Sunshine District Conference.

As a former PR, I felt so comfortable talking to and with the best PR people of Florida. For those of you who don’t know what is a "PR job", I must say:  PRs are professionals who make things happen. Period.

Gluten free orzo salad with black beans, avocado and cilantro (VIDEO)

Gluten free orzo salad with black beans, avocado and cilantro. I owed you this recipe since I published my grilled pork meatballs. It’s perfect for pairing with barbecues, although I also like it as a main dish at lunch. Best of all is that while the orzo is cooked, you chop the rest of the ingredients, make the vinaigrette and have your salad ready in a jiffy.
