Confessions of a telenovela addict

Ever been hooked on a telenovela? I mean so bad that you’re binge watching episode after episode when you miss a couple of them on any given week. Where you can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode because you’re so emotionally involved with the show that you’re actually planning some of your […]

Lo Que La Vida Me Robo
