My Favorites at Latin Billboards 2013

Friday, April 26, 2013

The Latina Billboard Awards were live last night from Miami and I have to say, everyone was looking so beautiful. I love my Latinos. We are such a colorful culture. 

Romeo Santos was looking sharp as always rocking his non prescription glasses. According to his Manager Johnny Marines, Romeo is looking into a few movie roals. They are friends with Will Smith but Johnny didn't confirm.  Johnny who is a former NYPD was using his past expertise on the lady fanatics of Romeo Santos last night, everywhere they went ladies wanted to touch and hug on him. 

Ana Barbara who served as Host at this years awards looked stunning. 
Congrats to Don Omar and Natti Natasha who won Best Song of The Year with - Dutty Love

I'm featured in "Cosmopolitan for Latinas" Summer 2013!

So excited to share with you guys that Michelle Rodriguez, The American Bad Ass Latina actress is gracing the cover of the Summer edition of Cosmo for Latinas, the very mag that I am a "featured blogger" in! 

 Trust me, I want to add more exclamation points to that last statement, but I will control myself. LOL  I got an email about a couple of months ago from Cosmo for Latinas about featuring my blog in the Summer issue. I was at Hooters having lunch with clients of mine and I received that email and ever since, I have a fire inside of me to continue and be the best me, I can be. I have always loved blogging because it gave me my own voice and space on the www to share my thoughts, my feelings, my ideas and in this  case some very awesome news. Never would I have thought, I always wanted and now there is no stopping I!  

  Do you know how hard it was for me to keep this news a secret?! 

The issue is set to be on new stands everywhere on April 30th, 2013 and will be available all SUMMER!

" you know what that means?? I grew up on have a feature, even my name mentioned in that magazine is beyond amaze...What makes me even happier is that it's the Cosmo for Latinas magazine. Being recognized with out seeking it makes me feel special ... thanks for the comments and love you guys!" -  facebook

I was in Miami for Hispanicize and I met tons of fabulous people. One person in particular I was very happyto meet was Editor in Chief of Cosmo for Latinas, Michelle Herrera Mulligan. We met at the bar, hey, don't judge, we were enjoying the Target pool party and happen to be thinking alike lol. 

I was pleased to sit in her "15 minutes of Genius" where she discussed her life as an Editor and struggles as a Latina in that world and her many accomplishments. I walked away with a lot of knowledge and very inspired.  

Don't forget, April 30th, Michelle Rodriguez on the cover, Me in the inside, page 11!!

Talk to you soon SpoiledOnes!! 

Jergens Crema Party Recap plus a free gift

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

I'm a Libra, so naturally I love gatherings and being social. So when I got asked by Latina Bloggers Connect to host a Jergens Crema party in my city of Houston, TX, I gladly obliged. I couldn't say no to gathering a group of fabulous lady bloggers for a mini social where the guest or should I say guests of honor were the latest in Jergens Crema products. So again, planning a gathering with blogger friends, food, drinks and sampling the latest in skin care, yeah I couldn't say no, plus it was Jergens. You should never say no to a house hold name. 

I hosted the Jergens Crema social at Hotel Sorella, where the John the manager had a trendy section for us that was well lit and perfect for the occasion. I ordered some appetizers for the gals, got the goodie bags ready to be sent home with the guests and posted my 1st picture of the event to Instagram (Follow me, if you aren't already)

Pitbull responds to Jay-Z's open letter song with his own version

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

A couple of weeks ago Jay-Z and Beyonce celebrated their wedding anniversary in Cuba which caused alot of static with most citizens of Cuba.  Mr. 305, Pibull is Cuban Proud and we knew he could not let the moment pass without weighing in on the topic himself.

The U.S holds strong economic sanctions in Cuba and the idea of them traveling to that country was abusured to most and has also led to a probe to find out whether or not The  Carters had proper permission to enter the country.

I'm a Latina Mama Bear...are you?

I'm a Latina Mama Bear...are you?
Let's face it, being a Latina Mama Bear isn't always easy. It takes a lot of work, lots of love and determination to be the manager of your household. 

Most of you know, how busy my life can be. I am juggling being a mommy, a blogger, a publicist and all the other roles I am given and take on, than on top of that trying to stay is nice when a company like Charmin takes notice of the efforts we put in as Mama Bears to our famiy and careers. 

I have been blessed to have been nominated for several Fashion Blogging awards, was recently on a Fashion Blogging panel at the Hispanicize conference in Miami, I occasionally do TV. But my main and most important roles are being a mommy and wife. At the end of the day, I am proud to be the driving force at my home and products such as Charmin make my life a whole lot easier.

I am proud to be a part of the Charmin and the Latina Mama Bear campaign where Latina Mama Bears are being recognized for not only being fabulous but being fabulous and hustling Mamas. Charmin and myself are  inviting all Latina Mama Bears to articipate in their sweepstakes on the official Charmin facebook page.  Spread the word.... 

I missed celebrity mom the one and only Giselle Blondet at Hispanicize this year, however I did stop by the Charmin booth and got to find out more about this fun campaign. Make sure to enter, because you never may be the lucky winner!

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Charmin and Latina Mom Bloggers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
