5 cinchy ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo

 
Just ‘cause there’s no fiesta on your radar doesn’t mean you can’t spice up your Sunday with a li’l Cinco de Mayo flair. Here are five easy ways to rock it this weekend.

 

Go Mexican

Everyone’s gotta eat, right? Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or a snack, you can tune in to this food-lovin’ holiday with Mexican munchies. For breakfast, think huevos rancheros. For lunch or dinner, tacos, fajitas or enchiladas = delish. For dessert, a li’l dulce de leche sundae, and for snacks, there’s nothin’ better than a quick cheese quesadilla or chips ‘n’ salsa.

 

Dial up the volume

Plug in to Pandora or Spotify and search for Mexican or Latina singers, or Spanish-language music. Hope you’re ready to boogie, babe, ‘cause these tunes will make ya wanna bust a move.

 

Dress to impress

Traditional Mexican dress favors vibrant colors, rich, woven materials and flowing fabric. Channel that vibe by adding a signature Cinco de Mayo piece to your look today. A pair of turquoise earrings, an embroidered top, a circle skirt or an open-weave scarf are chic choices.

 

Pull out your dancin’ shoes

Hangin’ with your hunnies? Make this Saturday sleepover into booty camp, Glee-style! Park yourselves in front of a computer and find a slew of Latin dance step tutorials on YouTube. Teach yourselves how to salsa, cha cha and merengue—and laugh it up, while you’re at it.

 

Get cultured

There are tons of examples of Mexican art and culture all around you—you just need to look. Check out local museums for special exhibits or collections that highlight aspects of Mexican history. Head to a video store or Netflix for fabulous foreign films.

 

What are you doing to celebrate, chicas?
