Beyonce says she's a "Grown Woman" and I agree! mmmhmm

Monday, May 27, 2013

This is why she is the head "B" in charge!
Beyonce topped the charts this week with her new single "Grown Woman" co-written by The Dream and produced by Timbaland. Beyonce is one of those entertainers that both men and women love. She commands attention with just her presence but when she sings, her songs call for attention mix in some Dream and Timbo and it's no wonder that this song is the most popular song this week.

#HelloAio, Welcome to Houston!

#HelloAio, Welcome to Houston!
This is a compensated post but all opions expressed are my own
Fun times at the Blogger Social for Aio Wireless. Who is Aio Wireless, well they are an AT&T subsidy (basically a company under a company) that is introducing us to to a more simple approach to going mobile here in the Houston area and expanding all over the U.S as we speak, or you read, I type, you know what I mean. lol

Alejandra with Aio, Miss Jennifer- Aio President, Me, Jen, Andrea and Taylor

Told you simple! Love it and here is why...
3 simple plans
$35, $50 & $65 and if you want to add UNLIMITED international calling to your plan it's just an extra 10 bucks! That totally beats a calling card. *just saying, I'm into saving money...well spending it on other things besides a bill. Ok back to simple...
bring your own phone, if it's compatible keep it and use it or purchase a new one and get a credit towards your old phone. (very good deal, a friend received $250 towards a new iphone5 this day) 

Jen looking very Aniston
What I loved loved loved about Aio was that they are not only taking up space in our communities, they are giving back to our communities. 

  • In "H-Town," Aio Wireless locked arms with Girls Inc. of Greater Houston, LULAC National Educational Service Centers and the Houston Area Urban League to find 30 talented students.
  • Each student selected receives a $1,000 scholarship.
  • ZTE, one of Aio's device manufacturers, is donating a super cool ZTE Velox tablet to each scholarship recipient because they know how much tablet technology is changing the way we take-in information and learn.
  • Our scholarship recipients' inspirational stories and dreams will be told on Aio's Facebook page for the next 30 days pictures, quotes and all.
  • A cool party and bumping DJ at the Houston Museum of Natural Science on May 30.That's where the students will receive their scholarship and the tablet.
Mason having a cocktail, much needed after all her help.

Dj was entertaining

Two Left Spoons yummy!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the event and this post...I don't know about you, but I am a big giver and believer in giving back. The fact that Aio hasn't been apart of my community for less than 30 days and is already giving back, shows a lot! Thanks Aio and Welcome to Houston!

Houston Image Expo- fun fun!

The Image Expo rolled into Houston over the weekend and I was able to attend the  first day. Wanted to go both days but had tons to do. I met so many fabulous people, got to know beauty brands that I otherwise probably never would have met and ultimately it was a blast. Shared the day with my bff blogger Magen Pastor. We scored lots of goodies, saw lots of new trends and made some great connections! 
casual kind of day...
the weather was so beautiful outside
 I was in heaven when I learned about these hair extensions! Mine will be shipped very soon.... Super easy to apply and take down hair extensions makes this product a must have!

Cute leopard and red outfit

Magen applying blush on with the biggest make up brush in the world!

Shany is a Houston based beauty brand who had the cutest make up bags, and make up cases. See the make up palette?  Yes, it's real makeup and it's soo cute I wanted to bring it home with me!

models for Recomier a salon only product, Hola Gustavo!

 You know I had to "Spoil Myself"

And so did should have seen her mini tight curly strand, so funny and cute! 

Love these Vodana products! The curling iron above is a brush and curling iron in one, which gave me a sexy summer wavy look that I went gaga over.

Meet Aaron the CEO. He gave me great insight into Vodana, they are the manufacturer of Paul Mitchell products and other high profile clients and he created his own brand. Vodana means "better than" in Japanese.

Summer nail color must haves

 Obliphica had the largest and most beautiful set up. The staff was so friendly. The products are worn by Pamela Anderson, Macy Gray, Kendra Wilkinson and just added, ME!
 Obliphica just launched a new hair color collection that I cannot wait to try!
New hair color coming soon..... lol

Cover Girl and The Hunger Games unite

Saturday, May 18, 2013

CoverGirl makes a power move collabing with The Hunger Games. The movie which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Iam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson in the second installment of The Hunger Games franchise. 

The film promises to illustrate the exquisite splendor in the world of the Capitol in rich detail, and the film's makeup department used COVERGIRL products on set to create the film's luxurious, high couture looks. Which I can not wait to replicate.

"With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire partnership, we wanted to redefine cosmetics' relationship to film with a fantasy-meets-reality beauty experience," said Esi Eggleston Bracey , VP and General Manager, Global P&G Cosmetics. "The film inspired COVERGIRL campaign coming out this fall truly will bring beauty transformation to life in an aspirational, dramatic fashion. All of us at COVERGIRL were captivated by Suzanne Collins ' novels and the first film, so we're thrilled to collaborate with Lionsgate on such a bold beauty partnership with the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
