#ArribaYLejos Tide and Gain team up with Safe Kids Worldwide

Thursday, June 25, 2015

My beautiful niece Melody and my son Anthony
I am collaborating with Tide and Gain to bring you tips on how to keep your home safe for our little loving creatures.  It is summer time and kids are not at school which means they are trying to get into anything they can get their hands on.  Young children are explorers often by touch and at times they want to taste and put things in their mouths. My son is one of those explorers, so I am glad that Safe Kids Worldwide, Tide and Gain have teamed up to teach parents about keeping kids safe around laundry packets. 

With liquid laundry packets gaining popularity, now used by 20 percent of U.S. households (including ours), parents need to be aware of this emerging risk for children.
 Did you know that between 2012 and 2013, more than 700 children who were 5 and under experienced serious effects as a result of liquid laundry packets, with the impact greatest among 1 and 2 year olds?
 In fact, the poison centers received more than 33,000 calls from 2012 through May 2015. 

Parents we must do better! 

As parents who want to keep the house clean and organized, we must be aware of where we store our hazardous cleaning products. If children get into laundry packets, the health risk can be significant. These powerful packets contain highly concentrated detergent that may cause loss of vision, severe eye burns, difficulty breathing, excessive vomiting...all in all not something we want our children to experience. 

Helpful Tips:

  • Whatever you do with your cleaning supplies, make sure that you keep them Arriba y Lejos -up and away from our little people and even our puppies.  High and up behind a locked door.  Don't keep them on the ground close to make it easier on you. 
  • Lock Laundry rooms - they often get forgotten about, because we think "it's the laundry room, the kids won't come in and play in here". Well, lets think about this again, it's summer time and lets say they want to play hide and go seek in the house...a good place to hide is the laundry room and if your child is anything like mine. He wants to discover new things and may find that the liquid laundry packets looks cool and smooshy, just never know what they will do with it. 
  • Keep packets in their original container and keep them closed
  • IF a children gets into them, call the Poison Help Number immediately, 1800-222-1222

I was able to gain some really great beauty tips from the man himself....read below for some valuable info!

1. What are you most excited about with the Dolce Matte Lipstick and Summer Shine Collection launches?

The Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Matte Lipstick Collection is an incredible line of lip shades. The color choice, product quality and finish are incomparable. It's pretty much all I'm using on lips at the moment. People really respond to these rich matte long wearing lips. The crimson and cherry shades in particular are just stunning.

As for the Dolce&Gabbana Summer Shine Collection, the peachy cheeks and sultry, sexy and smoky eyes are always a go-to classic for me. I am all about this look!

2. When do you recommend using a matte vs. shine?

I think Dolce&Gabbana Matte Foundation is great for the T zone area as that's where people tend to get oily. The Matte Foundation and Matte Concealer are especially great for sustaining smooth, clear skin. Adding shine is great for the cheekbone and lips – these areas can always use a little glow to create a very flattering highlight.

That said, my favorite summer look combines dewy skin via Luminous Liquid Sheer Foundation and a rich Dolce Matte Lipstick. The Dolce Matte Lipstick is actually very practical as it stays put even in the heat; so you don’t have to constantly check your compact mirror, you can relax!

3. What beauty regime would you recommend for mornings and evenings?

For evening it is important to thoroughly cleanse the skin and moisturize before bed. This is when your skin really gets to rest and rejuvenate, and you can use a cream like the Dolce&Gabbana Aurealux Cream, which is rich. In the morning refresh the skin with a light cleanser and moisturize. The Dolce&Gabbana Sheer Radiance Primer has UV protection and is a must-have to prep your skin for your color decisions of the day!

4. How should we protect our skin for this upcoming summer season? And what product do you highly recommend for keeping our skin flawless?

Sunscreen! Dolce&Gabbana Essential UV Cream has SPF 15 and serves as a great moisturizer. Paired with Dolce&Gabbana Sheer Radiance Primer, Dolce&Gabbana Matte Concealer and Dolce&Gabbana Perfection Veil Pressed Powder you will see a tiptop complexion. At night, the Dolce&Gabbana Aurealux Masks are brilliant for boosting the skin's condition and radiance.

5. What is your favorite matte color and shine color in the collection? 

I can’t wait to see women wearing the Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Lipstick from the Summer Shine Collection! I personally tend to gravitate towards peaches and golds which are super flattering on everyone and go seamlessly from day to night. The Dolce&Gabbana Shine On Lipstick is a personal favorite to create a sexy nude lip.

For the Dolce Matte Lipsticks, I love Dolce Desire, which is incredibly sophisticated chic. Beautifully bold.

6. Outdoor parties and summer soirées are right around the corner, how can I minimize oily and shiny skin outdoors? 

Light moisturizers and sunscreens for a start - these serves as a great way to combat a shiny face. You don't want your face weighed down with excess product in the heat and humidity. The Dolce&Gabbana Matte Foundations and Matte Concealers are superb for oil control and really are high performance makeup for a smooth flawless complexion in the heat.

Hope to see you guys there!! 

Springing into my home garden

Hola SpoiledOnes! How have you been? Espero que bien! 

Well, winter has come and went and summer is slowly approaching, gardens are blossoming and squirrels are playing in the yards. I got so excited the other day, when I noticed my flower buds blossoming.  I live a wooded residential area, where most of my neighbors keep their lawns looking really nice. I even have one neighbor who I find cutting his yard, twice a week. So of course; we don't want to be the house with the ugly yard so we have our yard cut every other week. 

Lately, I've been wanting to experiment with gardening on my own. I remember as a child, my mother would be outside in our home garden planting flowers, trees and fruits. My father had a chile' tree, where he would send me to pick chile del monte to compliment his breakfast or lunch. My grandmother in Mexico, has banana, tomato, chile, papaya I mean everything you can think of in her garden so all those memories and everything combined has inspired me start with my garden. 

One thing about gardening and getting the look or personality that we want (as in all facets of our life) is the quality of the products we use. I actually went to Wal-Mart (because mom used to go to Wal-Mart and Handy Dan). I purchased Scotts Miracle-Gro and Ortho Round Up because for Spring Cleaning our garden these products are ideal.  I really want to make my yard look fab and take advantage of the woody area we live in. I also have a deck in my back yard and planning for my garden space to look beautiful for 4th of July or a nice dinner with the family outdoors. 

I'll be working on my outdoor space...and will share progress soon.

 A few weeks ago, I took a road trip to Corpus Christi to visit the Selena museum and memorial during the Selena "Fiesta De La Flor" festival. Had a fun 2 days with my friends, we laughed a whole lot, visited the grave site, the memorial on Ocean drive and walked through the museum. Seeing all her clothes which didn't look expensive while in glass but on Selena the outfits looked expensive. The many awards she had received while alive, were a sad memory for those visiting that weekend. 
Forever in our hearts!

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!!
