Tina Knowles Day in Houston!

Last year I was invited to attend a luncheon where Tina Knowles would be the Key Note Speaker at a woman & money empowerment summit and I accepted the invitation for a reason; Tina intrigued me.  I wanted to know what the mother of the most famous woman on the face of this universe had to say. I have been a fan of Beyonce since The Writings On the Wall, from when she was rocking her braids and making her debut into the music industry, and still think she is The Queen of all Queens. Aside from the obviously beautiful self that she is; I feel she speaks to the woman who grew up with her. I can honestly say that every time she released an album I was experiencing the same things she spoke about in her songs. I wasn't obviously living her lifestyle but I was almost the same age as her going through the same things we as women go through.  I think all woman can relate!! 

At the summit; I shared the video which I went on to publish to youtube and the video was shared by most all media outlets from @necolebitchiedaily @globalgrind to @Vogue) Thanks! 

That day, Tina shared a beautiful story which she gifted to the ladies of the audience. What I didn't share on the video was that Tina was also gifted the honor by the Mayor Pro Tem and the Mayor of Houston Annise Parker who proclaimed October 2, 2014 to be  #TinaKnowles Day in Houston!!

 I wish I had met Tina and thanked her for such a powerful message that I myself needed to hear.

Soon after Beyonce who was inspired by her moms words - used a piece of my video in which her mother gives a bold statement... you can hear me agree by saying "mmmm-hmm" in the video below and in the actual song which I think IS super cool!! Maybe I will meet both Queens one day :) for now just watch this video of her mother being honored by the City of Houston.

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…
