NRG Energy savings package

Monday, March 30, 2015


In case you were not aware NRG Energy, Inc. is the official energy partner of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo which ended last week. The lights and carnival rides do not turn on by themselves right!? I am so glad that I was able to spend time at the carnival with my family on the last day! NRG, the Energy Empire has also made an awesome electronic service plan for the people thinking of making a switch and who also love incentives. The Rodeo Plan is customized for the ultimate Rodeo fan; the plan distributes competitive pricing and also offers a free pair of Justin Boots by signing up. Yes, a brand new beautiful pair of boots just by signing up!

That’s not all, NRG and the Rodeo teaming up has provided a personal power solution that keeps the only thing that keeps us sane (our Cell Phones) powered and ready to go!! The way it works is there are locations powered by NRG all around the city of Houston or at local events, they have battery packs that can be rented for $3.99 a week, and you use it and then return it to this kiosk. They can also plug into a 12.5 foot tower equipped with solar panels and a multitude of cellular phone device charging cables where we can charge for free!!!

Land O' Lakes Butter with Canola Oil *Giveaway

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Hey guys! How many of you love butter but hate when you take it out of the fridge and spread it and it tears yours bread? Yeah,  I hate that too. Recently, I tried Land O' Lakes with Canola Oil and discovered its great flavor but also the fact that it is made by 3 ingredients. How cool is that?!
 Land O' Lakes tastes good because it is made with Canola Oil, salt and sweet cream -yup, that's it! And guess what?! It spreadable convenience is reason in itself to try it for yourself. 

Made of 3 Ingredients:
1. Sweet Cream
2.Canola Oil
3. Salt

Another reason, I am loving Land O' Lakes is because it is so versatile and its taste and performance is the same as margarines minus the 15 ingredients. It can be used for spreading on your favorite breads and pastries, or as a topping for sides or favorite dinners. Land O' Lakes shares recipes on their website for our meal preparations like the one below. 

I love me some crispy garlic & butter green beans! 
you can find the recipe and others on LandOLakes.com

I know you want to try it! Here is a coupon for you...simply click here.

I suggest you trying out the Land O'Lakes with Canola Oil but they also have a cinnamon sugar, honey and garlic & herb flavor that you may enjoy as well. 

 I love to eat! lol

As always, I try to spoil you guys...so on behalf of Land O' Lakes and Spoiled Latina.com  we would like to "spread" the love by doing a giveaway for a $35 Gift Card along with a butter spreader!!


Good Luck!!

Jamaican Me Miss You

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Hola SpoiledOnes! It's been a crazy couple of weeks and this cold mixed with rain is not making matters better. I am missing Jamaica. I feel as though I have connection to the country. I am not sure if it reminds me of Mexico because the people are friendly and the food is amazing- especially the spices! I have visited the island twice and I am fascinated with it. I can't wait to explore the rest of Jamaica. My last trip was in November of 2014; and I learned so much more than my previous visit. I was able to explore and learn the culture and see historical sights. Truly an honor to see.





Avocado Heaven last night in Houston! #EchaleChallenge event recap pictures

Wednesday, February 4, 2015


Last night, guests who joined the festivities for the Avocados from Mexico #EchaleChallenge event at the swanky Galleria eatery Caracol, were in Avocado heaven!   We were treated to fresh avocado filled fish tacos, delicious shrimp cocktail bites and other delicious appetizers all with avocados. We all mixed and mingled through out the room while sipping on avocado margaritas that I must admit were delicious the Mojitos and avocado sangria were also tasty drinks. Guests also enjoyed some of Vianney of Sweet Life Bake amazing chocolate and avocado brownies and also gained valuable fitness tips from Carmen Melogoza from Latino Fit Club.  The crowd of about 75-100 people truly enjoyed themselves. I was so glad to be a part of this great event and to see a lot of my friends and colleagues and also got to meet new friends. 

Thanks for the love!

Disney's 1st Latina princess Elena of Avalor

Friday, January 30, 2015

It is no wonder Latinos are the major minority; we have big spending power and our influence is growing. With that being said I'm glad Disney took notice and created its first Latina princess

 Elena of Avalor

love the red dress and big hoops
Elena will star in her own TV show airing on Disney Junior in 2016; but will be meet her on an upcoming episode of Sophia The First. 

What Disney has shared about Elena is that she is a confident and compassionate 16 year old , she has a little sister named Princess Isabel, her grandfather Tito, and her grandmother Cici. (where is her mother?) She also has a best friend named Mateo and while trying to save her family from Shuriki, Elena was pulled into her own magical amulet.  Princess Sofia is wearing the amulet now will restore Elena to her human form and helps her return to Avalor. Too cute!

I love the fact that she is also voiced by a Latina actress Aimee Carrero who is on ABC Family’s Young & Hungry. She is Dominican and raised in Miami. 

Looking forward to meeting Elena of Avalor soon!

What do you think? Who will you go with? 

Tina Knowles Day in Houston!

Last year I was invited to attend a luncheon where Tina Knowles would be the Key Note Speaker at a woman & money empowerment summit and I accepted the invitation for a reason; Tina intrigued me.  I wanted to know what the mother of the most famous woman on the face of this universe had to say. I have been a fan of Beyonce since The Writings On the Wall, from when she was rocking her braids and making her debut into the music industry, and still think she is The Queen of all Queens. Aside from the obviously beautiful self that she is; I feel she speaks to the woman who grew up with her. I can honestly say that every time she released an album I was experiencing the same things she spoke about in her songs. I wasn't obviously living her lifestyle but I was almost the same age as her going through the same things we as women go through.  I think all woman can relate!! 

At the summit; I shared the video which I went on to publish to youtube and the video was shared by most all media outlets from @necolebitchiedaily @globalgrind to @Vogue) Thanks! 


That day, Tina shared a beautiful story which she gifted to the ladies of the audience. What I didn't share on the video was that Tina was also gifted the honor by the Mayor Pro Tem and the Mayor of Houston Annise Parker who proclaimed October 2, 2014 to be  #TinaKnowles Day in Houston!!

 I wish I had met Tina and thanked her for such a powerful message that I myself needed to hear.

Soon after Beyonce who was inspired by her moms words - used a piece of my video in which her mother gives a bold statement... you can hear me agree by saying "mmmm-hmm" in the video below and in the actual song which I think IS super cool!! Maybe I will meet both Queens one day :) for now just watch this video of her mother being honored by the City of Houston.
