Summer time means the less clothes possible, at least it does when one is in Miami. Ladies, you know I am not lying - when in Miami we should wear cute little dresses, bathing suits, and dress up to party the night away. Something that I am not used to, the little dresses I mean. However, I recently took a girls trip to steamy South Beach and decided to obviously, pack cute little dresses and beach wear. I packed the necessary essentials to make this trip a good one, necessary essentials meaning Antiperspirant.

Miami is a different heat than Houston weather and although I was in Miami this weekend I had already made my mind up in Houston that I was packing the new Dove Dry Serum Antiperspirant because it makes me feel confident in any outfit where I have to show my arms which is most days in the summer. I have been using it for a few weeks now and have loved the results. It's moisturizing my delicate underarm skin with a luxurious and light weight texture that dries instantly. I love instant and being able to feel confident that I won't smell like hot weather. 


Powder Finish – A sophisticated floral fragrance of iris, violet and powdery musk Jasmine Touch – Scented with soft, dewy greens and jasmine 

Rose Silk – Uplifting fragrance with notes of rose, magnolia and peony


I love introducing new products to my friends so I brought along all 3 scents of the New Dove Dry Serum Antiperspirants. I always like to bring along a little gift for my roommates, this time my girl got to indulge in this luxurious, dry antiperspirant deodorant which is a totally a unique experience. I made her try it and she loved the sheer, ultra-lightweight formula that absorbed instantly, leaving her skin soft, smooth and dry to the touch. The best part for me is the 48-hour protection so you that I can wear anything with confidence along with Dove’s signature 1⁄4 moisturizers to pamper your underarms. Obviously, I would shower way before 48 hours, but just in case I decide to run wild in Miami, I am protected.

You guys should totally try it! If you're in Texas or have an HEB near you use the following offer which is valid today through July 23rd. It's for a buy 1 Dove Dry Serum Antiperspirant and get 1 Women's Schick Disposable Razor in an assorted variety for free. You can download your coupon here or pick one up at your favorite HEB location. 

I really think you're going to love the switch from what you currently wear to Dove Dry Serum, and when you do - don't forget to share it with your girl friends!

3 Ways To Stay Positive

3 Ways To Stay Positive

Life. It's so beautiful, so hard, so easy, so confusing, so great! Don't you agree?

We've all have said it to someone or have had someone say it to us "Stay Positive". It's so easy to say those words, but for many people staying positive when the going gets rough is, rough. Staying positive is a mental task we all must learn how to master in order to live a peaceful, happy life. Being Positive is also a daily challenge that requires focus and attention and you MUST be intentional about staying positive, because we all know the mind plays tricks on us.


3 Ways To Stay Positive:
  1. Stay optimistic. As mentioned above, being positive requires your mind to be in a peaceful state. It requires you to shift your thinking to that one of optimistic and hopeful outcomes. The only way to have a good day or a better outcome is to "VISUALIZE" yourself having one. Stay Optimistic. Yes, life is hard. You are not the only one doubting yourself but if you don't have a spark of optimism and hope than you will stay stuck and WE Don't stay stuck, we move!
  2. Stay away from those feelings, people, things and energies that "DON'T FEEL RIGHT". Often times, as humans we are worried about hurting someone else because of fear that they won't like you or they won't value your opinion. If something is not "feeling" well. If something is "not going your way" - you must shift your mindset and free your self from those feelings. You've got to seek energies who fulfill your soul with power and fuel your mind with goodness. Remember life is too short for the B.S. and I don't mean bags and shoes. 
  3. Exercise regularly, eat well and sleep enough! Sounds so cliché but when I tell you this has been working or me lately, it's so true! I used to dislike looking at myself, until one day I had enough. I joined Hard Core Pilates and changed my mindset. I am going to be healthy, I am going to feel good, I am going to eat less but still eat what I love and I am going to take responsibility of my life and my feelings towards myself. Let me tell you, it hasn't been easy and if it was easy I probably wouldn't do it. It's a mental game we must win, its a mental game against our own selfs to be the best person we can be. When you start feeling good from the inside, and working out your outer body - the feeling is different. You start loving yourself more. BUT IT ALL START WITH staying Optimistic. If I wasn't optimistic, about joining Pilates, than I would never have uploaded these pictures. Thank you Wayne, Claire and my girls for the encouragement. 
Trust the outcome, work hard, OWN your MIND and do it for yourself....Stay Positive!

Road Trip with Chevy to Fiesta De La Flor

Road Trip with Chevy to Fiesta De La Flor



A few weeks ago I decided to participate at Fiesta De La Flor in Corpus Christi as a vendor selling my Spoiled Latina and Jefita Bonita T's. Honestly, I was very nervous about selling my merch on such a big weekend but knew that Jefita's live everywhere and Spoiled Latinas are all around us plus FDLF would be the biggest event I had ever sold at besides SL Day. 
I had to make sure I stocked up on new color ways, sizes and different inventory to be fully prepared for such a grand weekend and I was.

Corpus Christi, is about a 3 hour drive from Houston, and I knew that I would drive because of everything I was taking with me. While planning it all out, Chevy calls me! (God is Good!)
Turns out, Chevrolet was an official sponsor of Fiesta De La Flor and wanted to offer a media loan to help me get to Corpus in style, comfort and room for all of my merch and supplies and not to mention our luggage.
Grateful for the Chevy team for supporting their media friends to help make our work easier!!

We all know weekend road trips are always fun, but weekend road trips with your girl friends are way more fun, so I invited a few of my girlfriends who are always very supportive of one another along for the trip, to keep me company and of course to hustle with. The Chevrolet Silverado was big and bold and made me feel safe. I loved the features that the Silverado had such as the Rear Vision Camera, its a camera that pops on when in reveres that provides the driver of a view of the scene directly behind the vehicle. 6 airbags, just in case God forbid anything happen to use while road tripping and On Star Connected services with automatic crash response emergency services. Our road trip went smooth as can be and we had a blast on the road.

The one friend who came along with me, Laura - was the best! We jammed out to all of our favorite tunes, laugh, share stories, found new roads and ultimately grew our friendship all while driving to and from Corpus in a Chevy was really cool. The Silverado has bluetooth and 4G Wi-Fi which was awesome because my friend had work to get done. Apple CarPlay capability and if your team Android its compatible as well.  6 speaker audio system which made us feel like we were superstars the way we were singing to the top of our lungs. LOL

Overall the experience was great! Can't wait to experience another Chevrolet model and tell you all about it! 

we had just arrived to the festival so excuse the look! 

 Click to watch my video with Adrienne Bailon and Suzette Quintanilla
I had a quick interview with Adrienne Bailon and Suzette - click to watch it! 


While my visit to Corpus, I also had the chance to catch up with my sister who I had not seen in a few years. She joined me at Fiesta De La Flor and than met up with me the next morning for breakfast before my drive back to Houston. So happy for these moments! 



Shout out to everyone that stopped by and shopped Spoiled Latina and Jefita Bonita...thank you for the support!

Chevrolet - thank you for the love!

Crest 3D Whitening Therapy introduces new formulas

Crest 3D Whitening Therapy introduces new formulas


Shopping for toothpaste can be the easiest task or the most challenging. Do you go with what is safe and you are used to or are you adventurous and like to try new things?

What I love is when someone can recommend an outstanding product regardless of how long it’s been sitting on a retail shelf.

Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy has introduced two new formulas to its existing line and I recently got a chance to review them so hopefully one or both become a staple in your daily routine.


We have all seen the very popular videos of people brushing with charcoal infused pastes. The before and after always look great but what most fail to showcase is the mess it leaves on your counter, vanity mirror and all around your sink. After trying the new Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal toothpaste I loved that it provides the amazing benefits of purifying your teeth surface for a whiter, cleaner smile without having to clean your bathroom after the simple task as brushing your teeth. Truly a #BetterWayToCharcoal and perfect for those charcoal lovers looking for a no mess approach!

If you are looking to try something completely new test out the Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Coconut Oil. My son and I loved its vanilla mint flavor and long-lasting fresh feeling this paste provides. I’ve even included this new flavor in my guest bathroom because I want to get feedback from family and friends spending the night since the flavor might be a little unexpected, but with the same deep clean benefits they expect from Crest.

Both new products are available at Target and if you spend $20 you’ll get $5 deal available the week of 3/17. The offer is good on select beauty and personal care items, so shop now to receive your $5 Target gift card.
