SL Wedding Survival Tips

This post is sponsored by Dove® ClearTone™ Deodorant - designed to visibly reduce underarm dark marks and even skin tone.

It's wedding season and it's also hurricane season which means it is hot, humid, sometimes rainy and basically the weather is unpredictable. I was married in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico during the end of hurricane season which meant it was all of the above but with beautiful sand and beautiful blue water steps away from my hotel door steps. The day of my wedding the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining, the ocean was sparkling, than mother nature decided to rain on my parade. O lucky hour before the ceremony.  Being that the weather was fickle, and I didn't know how it was going to turn out,  I had to figure out a way to stay fresh, feel, look and smell good through out my wedding ceremony and the dance reception which were both on the beach. 

For all of the "Spoiled" brides to be, planning on getting married this season and are wearing a short sleeve or  sleeve less gown; these  next few tips are my  personal ways to stay fresh and feel great on your big big day. Congrats!!

SpoiledLatina Wedding Survival Tips

  1. Prep your skin for your big day - exfoliate, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize and stay out of the sun. No, I didn't accidentally repeat moisturize,  moisturizing our face is very important and will give you the beautiful wedding glow.  
  2. Drink Plenty of Water- This goes for days and months prior to your wedding and especially the day of and throughout. It will help keep you hydrated during the ChaCha slides and cumbias you will be dancing to.
  3. Eat healthy- very important, you don't want to feel groggy or sick based on something that wasn't good for your body.
  4. A good deodorant- now ladies, we know how important it is for us to wear deodorant on the daily. A good deodorant keeps you feeling fresh all day, simply by alleviating the unpleasant odor. Dove's Clear Tone-Skin Renew deodorant, is great because it helps with the irritation that occurs at time of shaving and also helps with the dark spots that are caused by the irritation.
  5. Touch up kit- make sure to have your maid of honor hold a little touch up kit, with your lipgloss or lipstick, your deodorant, some blush and baby wipes. Chances are sometime in your wedding day you will cry or sweat, make sure you have a makeup sponge to wipe off tears and to blend your makeup.
I hope these tips work out for you!

A night out with Marissa Lopez Wong - Mario Lopez sister

A couple of weeks ago, Mario Lopez was set to make an appearance at Lumen Lounge and due to things beyond our control he could not make it. However after speaking to him, he asked me to host his sister and brother in law and I gladly did. Marissa Lopez Wong is an author as well as sister to top Latin TV Host Mario Lopez and Kailee Wong is a retired NFL player. They live in Houston with their children and after a good dinner they celebrated the night away at Lumen. 
Waiting on when Mario will remake his appearance, hopefully it will be soon!

Better Together (sponsored post)

With my hubby and little man in the house things can get hectic. We all have packed schedules that require us to be on the go all day. That’s why I love using Caress Daily Silk Body wash Value Pack and my boys are smelling great with Axe Black from Sam’s Club. They are quick, easy to travel with, and smell great.

But best of all, Sam’s Club carries them! So, I can grab them while I am stocking the house up, and we have enough for both my guys!
Preparing for the day, freshening up mid-day, or getting ready for a night out, a quick blast of confidence from Axe is what my boys need.
But with Axe Black and Caress, my entire family is #BetterTogetherSC!

And Caress is for me, it gives me just what I need to start my day feeling fresh and lovely. I also love the reassurance that I smell great through out the day. 
And after a long day it is the perfect way to relax. 
And Sam’s makes it so easy to pick it up and go with their new app. Scan and Go! It makes my shopping trips so much quicker a…

Meeting with Romeo Santos...So Nasty

I love music and as most of us do, we also have our favorites. I was fortunate enough to meet one of my favorite musicians, Romeo Santos of the mega latin group Aventura while he was in Houston promoting his dvd release for "The King Stays King" a concert dvd from where he  sold out at Madison Square Garden for about 3 nights consecutively. He's like the male version of J.Lo, that hard to get close to. 

There must have been over 2k people in line waiting to get an autograph, catch a glimpse, a smile, and if lucky a hug from this latino heartthrob.... luckily I didn't have to wait in a line. I got a smile, a hug and we spoke and laughed about some of his previous work and very first cd. I was waiting on him while he met other fans for a private meet and greet the radio hosted and honestly I don't know how he does it...I was laughing the whole time, at the requests some of the fans were making, than at the replies the management would give. His management took car…
