My FIRST MAC lipstick!

I know, I could I be #SpoiledLatina's assistant and not have known the wonders of MAC Cosmetics? I bet some of y'all don't even believe this.

But, in my defense, I had fallen in love with Smashbox and TooFaced and thought I was good. So, what prompted me to stroll into my local MAC? Well! Being that I fell in love with Smashbox and TooFaced in HIGH SCHOOL and I am graduating from COLLEGE next year, I thought it might be time to make more grown up decisions. And, I'll just add in, that this decision went a million times better than my Brazilian disaster (more on that later).

To be completely honest, I was terrified of walking into MAC. It is kind of intimidating for someone who doesn't consider themselves a make-up junkie. So I did some research first (you know me) and decided that I would be looking for a berry shade. I didn't go in with an exact shade that I wanted, because I wanted to actually get the MAC experience with their trained artists.

At the store I had a wonderful woman who approached me immediately (I love that!). After finding out what shade I was looking for, she didn't immediately start shoving all of her lipstick knowledge down my throat or throwing open tubes of lipstick at me like a dart board. I was so impressed! Instead, she started asking me questions about what I wanted the shade for, and what kind of work I did (easy, I'm #Spoiled), among other things. Then she allowed me to pick the shades that caught my eye, none of which worked for me (lol). Regardless, she was helpful and let me test them all out. Right when I was losing hope she suggested two shades of lipstick that showed me love like I have never experienced before.

These shades stole my heart today.

They were out of Zen Rose, but believe me, I am in Houston today and I am coming for her.
But there was no way I was going to leave without Rebel.

 Here is my natural lip and here is my Rebel lip! I love it!

I am a true MAC believer now. My shopping trip was a true experience and my product is amazing.
I will be back soon to add my sprouting collection of MAC lipsticks.

#SpoiledOnes, tell me your favorite lipstick!

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…
