Meet the Member: Rina and Sonia of Chicks and Salsa

Rina and Sonia are sisters, Chicago natives, and the authors of Chicks And Salsa.

What is your blog about?

We have been blogging about fashion, friendship, and fun since 2016!  On our blog, we like to share products and ideas that help women (mostly Mothers) prioritize themselves.  We believe that women are givers and that they need a reminder to give themselves a break, or a treat, or a moment to do what is right for them! Of course, we hope that involves hanging out with friends over chips and salsa (our favorite food, obvi!)

When did you start blogging and what inspired you to start your blog?

It’s been a few years and it all kind of started with Windy City Bloggers Collective!   We attend our first event years ago organized by Kit and fell in love with the women we met there.  The energy, creativity, and openness to share ideas really jump-started us on our path.

What is your favorite blog post that you have written?

With the weather being as cold as it is, we have been staying in and writing a lot about beauty lately.  But all of our favorite posts are about sisterhood, friendship, and learning.

What do you love about blogging?

Our favorite part is the constant exploration on how to be your best self.  When you have to share who you are in a very public way, you begin to develop a very intense sense of identity that becomes very defined.  In that same way, Chicks And Salsa has become something that means a lot to us as we continue to hone the blog’s own identity.

What are some brands that you have worked with, or some brands that you would love to work with?

We are very grateful for all the brands that we have worked with and that have trusted us with their message along the way.   In particular, Chicago based ArganCoco, Neutrogena, Luna Nuda Wines, Landon Lacey Jewelry, Firefly Boutique, SelaFit, Lancome, and Belk!
