What I wore to Latin Billboard Awards

This year the hottest Latin superstars in music gathered in Las Vegas for the 2018 Latin Billboards and I was going to be there covering the show for Latina Magazine so first order of business was my #OOTD. 
Thankfully for me, I did not have to stress out like I normally do. One quick call to My Stylist at Macy's and they had me covered. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. "My Stylist" at Macy's is a! complimentary service that is available at all Macy's stores nationwide where you can simply make a call, describe your wants and styles to your stylist and they will gather the looks, meet you in a private dressing room and style you all for the low low price of NADA! 
This is the easiest, most convenient way to shop, especially when you're on a time crunch or just like me - are always too busy to walk in the store and look for the perfect outfit. 

I actually met with "My Stylist" in Macy's Fashion Show in Las Vegas. They had an assortment of dresses, a variety of colors that I honestly wanted to take them all home, but was there for 1 dress, 1 event so I had to FOCUS!! lol 

I chose a fabulous long navy blue dress by Betsy Adam
my accessories were by Givenchy
and I wore my Gucci tennis shoes for comfort due to my foot injury 

take a look at my video and leave a comment below if you love the outfit!!

Macy's Backstage opens in Houston

Macy's Backstage is officially open in Houston!

Backstage is an affordable brand launched in 2015 that aims to win back young bargain hunters who have been hitting the web for better deals. The store is located inside the Macy's at Pearland and is stocked with goodies. I literally wasn't in the store for more than 10 minutes and spotted the hand bag department. I got a great deal on the MCM branded tote and couldn't resist my urge to shop the hand bag selection. I bought 3 bags!!

Macy's Backstage carries home decor and kids shoes which Macy's doesn't carry inside their stores. They also have a nice sized beauty department with a good selection of beauty finds such as hair dryers and straightening tools. Another addition to the goods is the pet department with pet bedding and toys for our special 4 legged friends.

Giveaway TIME!!!

Cardi B: Invasion of Privacy [Full Interview] | Beats 1 | Apple Music

A Bronx born Latina to a world wide phenomenon, Cardi B is shutting down her haters and doubters by releasing her very first album "Invasion of Privacy" which released at midnight and 12 hours later announcing her GOLD status, thats incredible! 

So proud of her.... The album went gold so fast due to the success of Bodak Yellow alone, but wont count towards her weekly sales. Never the less, she is poppin!

Watch this interview with her and Ebro on Apple Music which by the way is giving me baby momma glowing vibes. Could she be carrying a baby girl... maybe?

Topgolf with #HTownKid

Topgolf with #HTownKid

**This is a sponsored post by Topgolf but as always all opinions are my own. 

I gotta keep my son Anthony busy - he's 8 years young and his energy is through the roof. 
One of the fun things we like to do but hadn't visited in a while was, Topgolf. 
So I made it extra fun by inviting his friends and their mom. I love inviting his friend John and his brother, the cutest little Cuban kids. Their mother Maria, speak Spanish to her kids and with Anthony and it helps me when I teach him the language as well because his friend knows how to speak it too.

We started off with activating their memberships, which btw if you click here you can get a free membership to Topgolf which will save you the $5 membership fee. Topgolf makes it an easy breezy experience for everyone to have fun. Each golf bay has its own waitress who takes your order and helps you set up the games.  The weather was perfect, totally enjoyed sitting outside watching the kids play.

We each ordered our own meal. I ordered a cob salad (trying to stay healthy), Anthony ordered the chicken and waffles, his friend ordered a breakfast pizza, a burger and we each ordered a lemonade. The food, was good. The kids loved it!

While we were playing, Anthony got a bit discouraged at his swing. He kept trying to hit the ball and couldn't seem to get it. The staff at Topgolf offered a mini lesson and within minutes his confidence boosted and he started hitting the balls.

I have it on my schedule to return to the Noches Latinas night at Topgolf where they will have a DJ playing some of our favorite latin hits. Topgolf also has a large bar, pool tables and so many televisions making it easy not to miss a game or anything you may want to watch while at Topgolf. 

If you haven't been to a Topgolf, I definitely think you should. It's great for the family, date night, and for some good, clean fun. Remember to take advantage of the free membership!

Momma on a Mission with Mazda

Momma on a Mission with Mazda

I always have something I am working on and trying to improve that's why its always great when brand partners such as Mazda team up with you to make your dreams and work a reality. This past week I drove a Mazda CX-9 and honestly forgot I was driving a SUV.  It drove so smooth, every time I picked up a little speed it felt as if I was driving a sports car. The sunroof was a a great addition to take in the amazing weather that we had experienced that week. 

My week started off with the Mazda in Austin - I was closing my work week at SXSW. I was at SXSW networking, learning and doing a few things with Wrangler Jeans. If you caught my Instagram stories, you saw the fun that was had at the Yeti store where Wrangler and Yeti partnered for cool SXSW showcases inside the Yeti store.

I have a love and hate relationship with Austin - I used to live there in my early 20's and for personal reasons it is not my favorite city to visit, however - I did have fun. I caught up with my nephew, his girlfriend, my niece and friends. I attended some music showcases, ate some great food, and met some great folks along the way. Parking was horrible, had to park in parking garages the whole time but we took some great pictures. 

I attended a brunch with Latina Magazine and Shea Moisture one morning and caught up with some fun Texas Latina Bloggers (which is always great to do) . We talked beauty and what it meant to Latinas. Our convo went well, heard some stories from the women and learned what the girls points of views were on different topics. Overall a beautiful morning.

I headed back to Houston in the Mazda, Anthony and I. He loved all the extra space in the back seats. He played video games, we sang songs out loud together (something we love to do) and made it back to Houston in no time.

Upon returning to Houston, back to busy!

I attended a few media events, but mostly caught up with emails and back to being a busy working mom!
