#ArribaYLejos Tide and Gain team up with Safe Kids Worldwide

My beautiful niece Melody and my son Anthony
I am collaborating with Tide and Gain to bring you tips on how to keep your home safe for our little loving creatures.  It is summer time and kids are not at school which means they are trying to get into anything they can get their hands on.  Young children are explorers often by touch and at times they want to taste and put things in their mouths. My son is one of those explorers, so I am glad that Safe Kids Worldwide, Tide and Gain have teamed up to teach parents about keeping kids safe around laundry packets. 

With liquid laundry packets gaining popularity, now used by 20 percent of U.S. households (including ours), parents need to be aware of this emerging risk for children.
 Did you know that between 2012 and 2013, more than 700 children who were 5 and under experienced serious effects as a result of liquid laundry packets, with the impact greatest among 1 and 2 year olds?
 In fact, the poison centers received more than 33,000 calls from 2012 through May 2015. 

Parents we must do better! 

As parents who want to keep the house clean and organized, we must be aware of where we store our hazardous cleaning products. If children get into laundry packets, the health risk can be significant. These powerful packets contain highly concentrated detergent that may cause loss of vision, severe eye burns, difficulty breathing, excessive vomiting...all in all not something we want our children to experience. 

Helpful Tips:

  • Whatever you do with your cleaning supplies, make sure that you keep them Arriba y Lejos -up and away from our little people and even our puppies.  High and up behind a locked door.  Don't keep them on the ground close to make it easier on you. 
  • Lock Laundry rooms - they often get forgotten about, because we think "it's the laundry room, the kids won't come in and play in here". Well, lets think about this again, it's summer time and lets say they want to play hide and go seek in the house...a good place to hide is the laundry room and if your child is anything like mine. He wants to discover new things and may find that the liquid laundry packets looks cool and smooshy, just never know what they will do with it. 
  • Keep packets in their original container and keep them closed
  • IF a children gets into them, call the Poison Help Number immediately, 1800-222-1222

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…
