Culture, Style, Food, Fun
for Contemporary Latinas in Texas
Welcome to Modern Tejana! This the Texas Latina lifestyle blog that celebrates the way the nearly 5 million Hispanic women in Texas live – stylishly blending the old with the new, on their own terms. I write stories for Tejanas who live and love their culture, and work to keep it current and alive. From Tex-Mex recipes with a twist, to exciting new entertainment, to style and beauty trends, this space is about the things that make today’s Texas Latinas Modern Tejanas.
Modern Tejana blog is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas.
