Springing into my home garden

Hola SpoiledOnes! How have you been? Espero que bien! 

Well, winter has come and went and summer is slowly approaching, gardens are blossoming and squirrels are playing in the yards. I got so excited the other day, when I noticed my flower buds blossoming.  I live a wooded residential area, where most of my neighbors keep their lawns looking really nice. I even have one neighbor who I find cutting his yard, twice a week. So of course; we don't want to be the house with the ugly yard so we have our yard cut every other week. 

Lately, I've been wanting to experiment with gardening on my own. I remember as a child, my mother would be outside in our home garden planting flowers, trees and fruits. My father had a chile' tree, where he would send me to pick chile del monte to compliment his breakfast or lunch. My grandmother in Mexico, has banana, tomato, chile, papaya I mean everything you can think of in her garden so all those memories and everything combined has inspired me start with my garden. 

One thing about gardening and getting the look or personality that we want (as in all facets of our life) is the quality of the products we use. I actually went to Wal-Mart (because mom used to go to Wal-Mart and Handy Dan). I purchased Scotts Miracle-Gro and Ortho Round Up because for Spring Cleaning our garden these products are ideal.  I really want to make my yard look fab and take advantage of the woody area we live in. I also have a deck in my back yard and planning for my garden space to look beautiful for 4th of July or a nice dinner with the family outdoors. 

I'll be working on my outdoor space...and will share progress soon.

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…
