Celebrating Cinco De Mayo

Cinco De Mayo is a holiday celebrated nationwide in the United States and throughout Mexico. This fun and festive holiday celebrates Mexican culture, pride, and the fight for freedom during the American Civil War. This is a fantastic time to learn more about Mexican tradition, and reflect on our rich history as neighbors and friends.

Here are some AbFab tips to help you celebrate Cinco De Mayo...

Hosting a Cinco De Mayo Party? Try decorating with fresh fruit. Its festive, fun, and colorful!

Fresh Mex is the way to go! Try Our AbFab Fresh Recipes For Margaritas and Guacamole.

Margaritas: 4 limes, 4 lemons, 11/2 cup fresh Orange Juice, 11/2 cup fresh Pineapple juice, 3 ounces Patron Silver, 1 1/2 ounces favorite triple sec.
~Cut Lemons and Limes in half and squeeze juice into blender, then follow with the rest of your ingredients. Finally, blend until frothy and pour over ice in a nicely salted rim glass.

Guacamole: 4 ripe avocados, 1 lemon, 1 diced tomato, fresh cilantro, 1/2 diced onion(small), 2 ears of raw corn, salt and pepper.
~Peel and pit avocados, add raw corn, tomato, onion, and cilantro. Pour contents into blender, squeeze lemon over ingredients, dash salt and pepper to taste, and blend. Delicious!!!

Beauty Secrets...

Mexican women rub coarse sea salt all over their bodies when they shower for a natural, radiant glow!

Sensitive skin? Try this pineapple facial. Chop and mash pineapple, cover face, and allow to dry (approximately 15 min.), rinse, then follow with favorite cream. The magical enzymes in pineapple will naturally and gently exfoliate your skin.

Finally, for a little extra lash action, take a page out of a Latina beauty magazine! Mexican beauties use two spoons to curl their lashes. They place each spoon on either side of the lashes and curl back. So easy and it works!!!

Have A Wonderful Cinco De Mayo Everyone! Please share with us your fun Cinco De Mayo Plans on Our Facebook Page! Adios Amigos........
