Why Ciao Bonita? Ciao is Italian for hello or goodbye, but is also a very common greeting among Latinos. Being that Italian is one of my favorite languages and Italy one of my favorite places I opted for this version of Hello. Bonita, is Spanish for beautiful or pretty. I very strongly believe in the importance of self love and I think it’s something as women we have all struggled with at some point in our lives. My purpose as a blogger is to transmit via my posts a little bit more joy.
