Babies Trying Pan Dulce For the First Time Is The Kind Of Wholesome Instagram Trend Some People Can’t Get Enough Of

There are few things more deliciosothan pan dulce. Whether it’s served with café con leche or grabbed as a quick breakfast indulgence, it really is the perfect treat. This variety of sweet bread has become a big part of the Latinidad.

When we’re talking pan dulce, conchas, puerquitos, orejas and empanadas are just a few of the mouthwatering options. No matter which sweet bread is your fav, you can relive your first taste over and over again with every fresh bite.

Thanks to social media, we can also see the adorableness that comes with baby’s first sweet bread. Hashtags like #BabysFirstConcha or #BabySweetBread are where to go to find cute pics of babies taking their first bites of sweet pan dulce.

Here are some super cute pictures of babies eating their first pan dulce.

1. Enjoy your matching concha, preciosa.

Pan dulce-themed birthday parties are now a thing — and we really wish they were back when we were kids. What better way to celebrate your special day than to dress like your favorite food. That frosting-covered face confirms how awesome pan dulce birthdays can be.

3. You don’t need teeth to enjoy pan dulce.

Not having teeth doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying the goodness that is pan dulce. If you’re a babe taking your first bite, just working that sweet treat with the gums you’ve been given is good enough. Just imagine how much pan dulce this cutie will take down once he actually gets those baby teeth in.

4. Just a little nibble for now.

While some babies might go mouth-first into their conchas, this little lady prefers to nibble. In her matching concha onesie, this sweetie is more proper with her first bite. However, once she gets a taste, there’s no doubt this little conchita will go pan dulce-crazy.

5. That smile says she knows this is going to be good.

Look at the awe on her face. Look at that little grin. This baby knows she’s got something special in front of her. This pic was taken before the big chomp but that look on her face tells us it’s coming soon.

6. Nothing beats twinning with your pan dulce.

Can you really claim conchas are your favorite food if you don’t regularly dress up like them. Twinning with your favorite pan dulce is an awesome look no matter what day it is. Top it off with a concha cake and you’ve got a party.

7. Pan dulce: the perfect party food.

Piñatas and decorations are all well and good, but a real party needs one more ingredient — pan dulce. This little lady knows what’s up as she snacks on her vanilla concha. What’s even better is the absolutely gorgeous photoshoot she had to immortalize her first bite.

8. If you are what you eat, eat lots of conchas

Have you ever seen a cuter conchita in your life? The answer is obviously no. This giggly little sweet bread is just as lovable as the pan dulce that she’s dressed as. Of course, her happy face could have something to do with all that colorful sugar.

9. Sweet like pan dulce.

Those sweet, soulful eyes and that face buried into a soft concha are guaranteed to make you say, “Awwww.” This adorable shot doesn’t need any extra props or colorful backgrounds to make us swoon. If you don’t have baby fever yet, you probably do now.

10. Waiting for the sugar to kick in like…

Her face is telling us a lot. Namely that this little chula is lost in the flavor of her delicious pan dulce. We can admit that this state of pre-sugar high is super relatable. At least baby will be able to enjoy a nice nap after that sugar hits.

11. ¡Que delicioso!

Can you pass out from cuteness overload because this little babe is giving us a crazy case of the adorables.Surrounded by all things Mexicano, this baby is the perfect model. That eye contact with the camera is professional-level and so is the way she handles that pan dulce.

12. When you can’t wait to get home to start digging in.

Instagram / @aandylove

Sometimes you can’t wait to get home from the panderia before you start digging into the pan dulce. This sweetheart didn’t even wait to get out of her car seat to start snacking. Also, did anyone else notice that this concha is as big as her head? That’s a big project she’s working on.

13. Conchas are serious business.

Instagram / @lamonarcabakery

Although this little preciosa has a serious look on her face, those puffed out cheeks give away her secret. They’re stuffed with yummy concha. She’s obviously contemplating which piece of pan dulce she should take down next.

14. Go ahead and take a big bite, mija!

Instagram / @tres.marias.and.mama

For her “Coco”-themed birthday party, this little cutie has everything from flower crowns to guitars to complete that mood. Of course that means she also has the ultimate treat, pan dulce. We wonder if she waited to blow out the candles before she dug in.

15. We know that feeling, baby girl.

Instagram / @rlocreativedesign

That feeling when the pan dulce hits that sweet craving just right. This little cutie looks like she’s experiencing just a bit of euphoria with that first bite. The matching concha tee and pink tutu really complete this adorable look.

16. Her face says it all.

Instagram / @little_mia_sanchez

As perfect as pan dulce is, it’s also pretty messy. However, that mess is just proof that you’re thoroughly enjoying that sweet treat. This baby isn’t at all worried about the sugary mess on her face; she’s got her eyes on the prize.

17. Never too young for pan.

Instagram / @mrs.sotelo.official_

While many babies have pan dulce parties for their first or second birthdays, this little lady just couldn’t wait. As a celebration for her nine month b-day, she not only had a taste of delicious pan dulce, she also had a little photoshoot to commemorate it. After all, you’re never too young for this sweetness.

18. Now that’s a mouthful!

Instagram / @truegrumpybaby

Some babies nibble, some take a practice bite before they jump in. This baby isn’t afraid to take the plunge and go at it with a big ol’ bite. We hope he approaches every challenge in his life with the same bravery and commitment.

19. La Princesa de Conchas.

First of all, we LOVE this look. Secondly, this little princesa looks absolutely in love with that sweet bread. No doubt, this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship between conchas and this little cutie pie.

This sweet smile can only mean one thing: this little one is in love with pan dulce. The sweet simplicity of her first bites is what this list is all about. It’s a reminder of what pan dulce is all about: sugar, bread, and all things good in this world.

After A Breakup, This Woman Went Back And Edited Her ‘Perfect’ Instagram Photos To Tell The Truth About Her Ex

After A Breakup, This Woman Went Back And Edited Her ‘Perfect’ Instagram Photos To Tell The Truth About Her Ex

Regular people do it, even celebrities do it: you break up with someone and cannot fathom seeing their face all over your social media. All those happy-go-lucky photos of you two together trigger hurt feelings or maybe you just don’t want to give them the satisfaction.

 A 22-year-old named Rosie decided to rewrite history in her own way. Rather than deleting all of the remnants of her exes, she decided to tell the truth about them. An assortment of her edited photo captions went viral with 57,000 likes on Twitter this month. Vice sat down with Rosie for an interview to discuss her process. 

Rosie was going through her Instagram archive one day when she noticed a pattern.

“Decided to unarchive all the pictures I had with shitty guys because I look cute but updated the captions to be more accurate,” Rosie said in a Twitter caption. 

In one photo Rosie is kissing her smiling beau on the cheek with the original funny caption, “like if you think I can do better.” The same photo now has the addendum, “he broke up with through Facebook messenger so yes, I can do better.” 

Before this, Rosie had tucked all her past relations away in Instagram’s archive. One day, while browsing through the old photos she noticed that the reason a lot of the pictures were hidden was because her exes were in them. 

“I cherish the memories, so I didn’t want to delete the photos nor the original caption. I wanted to keep these pictures that I love while acknowledging that I no longer love the people in the picture with me,” Rosie told Vice.  “Instead, I decided to edit the caption with a short phrase indicating that things have changed since. And then, I tweeted about it because I thought it would make a funny, lighthearted post about something that can be — and was, for me — very painful!” 

Rosie’s revision goes viral and garners a mixed response. 

“Girl you’re not alone. Mine broke up with me through text while I was in labor with our child,” one Twitter user wrote in response. 

Other users decided to use Rosie’s methodology to approach photos of their own exes on Instagram and social media.

Some got their own inspiration from this move of bravery.

“I truly appreciate this!! I don’t want to delete my IG photos of my exes bc they’re a part of my life, but I can EDIT them to show what I’ve learned and how I’ve grown. Thanks, girl,” another user said. 

While there was a wide swath of support on social media, Rosie also had her detractors. Many felt she was bullying her exes. Although she did note that she didn’t add new captions to photos of all of her exes, just the bad ones. 

“There are others who find the post immature and vengeful, and I can understand where they’re coming from too. Everyone copes with a breakup in different ways. An edited Instagram caption isn’t for everyone,” Rosie said.

Many women felt empowered by Rosie’s captions, especially those who overcome abusive exes. 

Rosie pointed toward another user’s response named Cass in the interview. Cass was engaged to an abusive man before eventually leaving him. Her edited captions, in particular, are a gut punch. 

In a photo of her smiling with her ex on their two-year anniversary, Cassie wrote, “I had to post things like this or else he didn’t believe I loved him and he would cheat on me because he felt ‘insecure.’ This was the third time I dyed my hair red because I was desperately seeking attention because things weren’t OK.” 

Rosie believes that deleting the photos of exes, for many women, is a coping mechanism to deal with trauma, however, it doesn’t really work. What happened really happened, no matter how good or bad, and there is no way that you can delete real-life events from history or memory, at least not yet. 

“So we find strength and healing in keeping these pictures and memories, but acknowledging how we have changed from them,” she said. 

For Rosie calling her exes out also allowed her to realize what she learned from each failed relationship and gave her the space to grow from it. She believes it is important not to give up on love, but to also realize love doesn’t just have to be romantic.

“Every heartbreak teaches us a little about ourselves and helps us understand what we want and what we deserve. I’m thankful for every experience I’ve had because I’m happy where I am today and those experiences helped me get here,” she said. “I also want to tell others to keep believing in love and know they deserve it, despite experiences that have made them feel otherwise.”

Renata Bresciani (“Miss Renata”) Talks Her Personal Inspiration, Practicing Gratitude, and Staying True to Herself

missrenata / Instagram

Renata Bresciani may not be a household name just yet, but it’s only a matter of time before this self-proclaimed “multipassionate entrepreneur” takes over the world. Born in Miami, Florida to parents who immigrated from Chili, Renata Bresciani (who goes by “Miss Renata” to fans) was destined to be an artist and an entertainer. As Miss Renata describes it, dancing was her gateway drug into the entertainment industry. Soon enough, Miss Renata was becoming the definition of a multi-hyphenate business woman, dipping her toe in everything from pin up modeling, acting, fashion blogging, and owning a street-wear brand. 

As for what drives her to be constantly creative, leaving others in the dust? “I like to say that I have the ‘performance gene’,” she says. We couldn’t agree more. Recently, we were lucky enough to talk to Miss Renata about her personal style, combating harmful Latino stereotypes in the media, and drawing inspiration from Old Hollywood icons.

@missrenata/Instagram

Mitú (M): How long did it take you to develop your personal style? Were you always interested in the “pin-up” look? 

Renata Bresciani (RB): Honestly, my personal style is constantly evolving. I literally dress based on my mood, but I have been very bold with my style since I was in middle school. Pin-up, retro, classic, and Parisian-vibes are everything to me. I have always been intrigued and attracted to everything vintage, so pin-up style was just an extension to that. I am definitely an old soul that was supposed to be an Old Hollywood actress.

@missrenata/Instagram

M: How did you get into acting and performing? When did you decide to expand your brand into the influencer sphere?  

RB: I’ve been performing since I was three years old and was in gymnastics, dance, and modeling since elementary school. I started musical theater in high school, which I absolutely love! Most importantly, the studio I grew up in (MDA Studios) opened up the doors to performing in Sabado Gigante and Univision, which was a childhood dream. That then opened up the doors to dancing in award shows as a back up dancer, music videos, tours and live television shows. I officially decided to tap into the influencer world in September 2017, with the influence of my husband. I was basically already doing it with some brands, but not really taking it seriously. But my decision to do it officially changed the game!

M: Your social media presence and posts are very uplifting and inspirational. How do  you stay positive when you’re having a bad day?

RB: We all have bad days and the truth is, I get cranky sometimes. But, I like to sit back and realize how blessed I am and when I do that, gratitude just fills my heart. Honestly if nothing else happens in my life, God has done so much already that all I can do is be grateful and happy. I do believe the best is yet to come and that everything in life is figure-out-able. 

M: Out of all the areas you work in (acting, dancing, modeling, entrepreneurship), what’s your favorite and why? 

RB: Wow that is definitely hard, but my favorite is acting! Acting taps into such a creative and emotional part of who I am that it fulfills my creative soul. The ability to transform and walk in someone else’s footsteps to then impact the people watching in a way that can bring them laughter, tears, or even anger is incredible! To evoke emotion is an art. Acting is a form of therapy and break-through for an artist like me who has all the feels. My second is modeling. I love transforming and making people feel something from an image.

M: Do you think Latinas are misrepresented in the media? How do you want them to be represented? 

RB: Yes, absolutely Latinas/Latinos are misrepresented! We are bold, resilient, intelligent, passionate people! I want the world to see that! I would like to see more Latinas in this space encouraging women through their career.

@missrenata/Instagram

M: Why do you think people resonate with your content? 

RB: I would like to think its because I encourage people to love themselves, love others, to always believe in their dreams, and and to never give up!

M: Who are some people who inspire you and what advice do you have for others who want to become influencers?

RB: Aureta [Thomollari] inspires me so much, aesthetically and emotionally. She is such a vibe and so encouraging to me as a woman and an entrepreneur. Desi Perkins is also an inspiration–she’s a proud Latina and first-generation American like me. She built a name for herself with her art and she also values family, which is everything to me!

M: Where do you see your career going next? What are you the most proud of having accomplished?

RB: I believe the best is yet to come. And I definitely believe you will be seeing a lot more of me on screen! More film, more series, and bigger fashion partnerships.

@missrenata/Instagram

M: If you could tell your teenage self one thing, what would it be?

RB: I would tell my teenage self to be patient! I would tell her that she was called to create. To only focus on things that set her soul on fire, to not care about anyone else’s opinions, and I would tell her that she is enough!

M: Do you consider yourself a role model? Why or why not? What does being a role model mean to you?

RB: I think everyone is a role model to someone whether they want to be or not. To me, being a role model encouraging and empowering people to be confident in who they are. It is positively impacting someone in one way or another.

@missrenata/Instagram

M: What would you tell fans of yours who are looking to follow in your footsteps as an influencer and entrepreneur? 

RB: I would tell them that is takes time, to be patient, to work hard, to stay true to themselves, and to love what you do!

M: What’s next for you? Do you have any projects in the works? 

RB: I’m so excited for 2020! There are so many things in the works right now that I can’t really talk about, but lets just say that you will be seeing so much more of me!! 2020 is going to be full of amazing opportunities and breakthroughs!
