Kidde Carbon Monoxide Detector 

Our Favorite Products & Resources

I became a passionate advocate for carbon monoxide awareness after my husband Frank nearly lost his life to carbon monoxide poisoning in 2017. We use CO alarms in each of our bedrooms and next to all gas-burning appliances (oven, clothes dryer, fireplace and hot water heater). When traveling, we put them in our hotel rooms and in the sleeping areas of family and friend’s homes we stay at. Protect yourself and your loved ones against a silent killer with CO detectors for both home and travel. #bettersafethansorry

INM/Immigration Assistance in San Miguel de Allende


Maricela is a bilingual and highly regarded INM Specialist here in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. She is with whom my family personally works with for our own legal residency status and to whom I confidently refer all of my clients, friends, family and followers.

Maricela will walk you through all of the necessary INM Proceedings (and nuances) to make sure that you are in full compliance with current Mexican law for the duration of your and your family’s legal residency in Mexico. 

If you would like me to connect you with Maricela, please email me at losogradysinmexico@gmail.com.

Maricela also offers Mexican Driver’s License & Automobile Plates Assistance and can advise & assist you on Car Importation/Nationalization/TIP matters.

Expat Health Insurance


Aldis is the agent I refer my clients to for their Expat Health Insurance needs (both travel and long term) and with whom we personally work. 

While most routine medical care in Mexico is relatively affordable–i.e. dental cleanings, physical therapy, consultations with specialists–for any unforeseen big-ticket items (surgery, an accident), a good Expat Policy is prudent and would be there to support you in a private hospital. 

Aldis is an Expat himself who lives in San Miguel de Allende with his family and has offices both here and in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He will work hard to find the best policy for you and yours. 

I am happy to connect you with Aldis. Simply send me an email at losogradysinmexico@gmail.com and I will do so. 

There is no cost to schedule a call with him.
