Latina Actress On The Uprise

Latinas have emerged in the entertainment industry since the 1920’s. Actresses such as Dolores Del Rio paved the way for Latinas in Hollywood.
However, at that point in Hollywood history Latinas were limited to certain roles or characters such as being mysterious, sultry, and guided by their emotions.
As time has passed we have seen an increase of Latinas in Hollywood, some of who include Salma Hayek, Eva Mendez, Jennifer Lopez and Sofia Vergara.
The range of characters portrayed by Latinas have also expanded significantly, and the Latino audience has progressively grown in Hollywood as well.
Latina’s are no longer being displayed as JUST the maids, or the exotic women on the big screen; those days are becoming history.
An uprising Latina actress has made her way to the entertainment industry who shows a promising future.
Suveria Mota, born in the Dominican Republic, moved to New York City at the age of four along with her family. Suveria started getting involved in dancing, and acting as early as early as elementary school.
She pursued a degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology at Lehman College, but as soon as she graduated she went on to pursue her long life dream: to become an actress in Hollywood.
Just a few months later she joined SAG-AFTRA, an American labor union that represents over 105,000 film and television principal and performers worldwide.
She has featured in various shows such as “Glee,” and is currently filming various movies such as "Wolf on the Moon" and "Nocturnal Reflections."
Latina actresses have faced various stereotypes and obstacles to emerge in the entertainment industry, but actresses such as Suviera are continuing to pave the way to improve the outlook on Latina actresses.
 She is pursuing her dream, and is not letting the stereotypes or the limited roles stop her from empowering herself as a LATINA actress in Hollywood.
I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of this Dominican beauty in the near future.

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…
