Dr. Maya Angelou RIP

Today the world experienced an immense loss with the passing of the great author, poet, and civil rights activist Maya Angelou at the age of 86, but she has left a trademark on this Earth that we will cherish for many, many years to come.

Dr. Angelou was known for using her words to uplift people, rather than to bring them down. She wrote and spoke about injustices, and many subjects pertaining to human equality. She taught us the powerful use of words, and we will continue to honor everything she taught us.
Her legacy includes mentoring one of the most influential woman, Oprah Winfrey, as well as her well known writings I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Still I Rise and On The Pulse Of Morning.
Maya Angelou was a woman who lived with infinite grace and purpose. During her lifetime she received 50 honorary degrees, three Grammy awards, and was a woman of many titles including - Hollywood director and actress, teacher, activist, artist, dancer and probably the most prestige and precious to her – mother.
The world lost a legend today, but her legacy will remain alive. We will continue to honor such an amazing woman who taught us the power and impact that one person can have on the entire world. So we thank you Dr. Maya Angelou for sharing your talent and wisdom with us, May You Rest In Peace.
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." – Maya Angelou

“I like Dallas, and I like Houston,” she says. “I have good friends in San Antonio. I didn’t find anyplace I didn’t like. I really liked El Paso, too. Because I speak Spanish, I like to be in places where there are a lot of Mexican-Americans.”

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…
