Monday, January 25, 2016

Hey SpoiledOnes! I am excited to finally share this interview with you guys....I talked to Mario  Dedivanovic for a few minutes while in Miami during Swim Week this past year and was so happy to finally connect with him via my Beauty Blender family. 

Mario, for those of you who don't know started his career out as a fragrance consultant and later moved into the makeup world after he would offer his client makeup consultations. He later worked for top celebrity makeup artists as an assistant and by the age of 21, had his very own agent. Today Mario, is widely known for his client Kim Kardashian who has frequently called Mario, her best friend.

Remember when I hosted the Macy's event with Mac Daddy? Watch it here

What do you do when one of your favorite department stores asks you to host the Hispanic Heritage Month event at their store?! If you are anything like me, you smile and thank the man above for the opportunity first, than you dance the day away. Especially when it's Macy's, a store I have shopped at for many many years and than to  see the below advertisements through out the store! * I was so excited! 

 I hosted this event in October, which was held at the Memorial City Mall location in Houston. I had a great time hosting the event as well as getting to know Angel aka Mac Daddyy a little bit more.

Absolutely loved meeting readers of the blog, my Facebook and Instagram followers....thank you for the love! 

Sprout Channel New Original Series "FLOOGALS" premieres January 23rd!

Friday, January 22, 2016

If you are a parent than you know about Sprout Channel, if you don't know or don't have children, let me school you. Sprout is a 24-hour preschool network, that up until recently my son started growing out of. It's a healthy alternative to watching all of the other channels TV offers.  I'm hoping that tomorrow's launch of the channel's newest original series "Floogals" will captivate his mind and keep his attention. Floogals is super cute, I was invited to a lunch this past week with Sprout Channel's VP of  Programming Lisa O'Brien intruding the show and we caught a sneak peak of the adorable series which follows three inquisitive aliens whom are exploring planet earth. Everyday is an exciting mission of experimentation, learning and discovery with Captain Fleeker, First Officer Flo and Junior Boomer as they explore the human way of life. 

The series is created for kids 2-6 years of age and has stunning cinematic quality. Floogals is funny and has smart story telling and each episode is about finding the extraordinary in the ordinary which is Sprout's overall brand identity. I connected with it being a Montessori mom, because watching the series reminds me of how Anthony must have felt when he was learning and discovering new objects and feeling new fabrics and fibers. My little pumpkin is 6 now, and I will continue to make sure his mind is full of positivity and growth and I will encourage him to watch the series. 

Hope you guys watch it!

quick video recap of the event and pictures... enjoy!

an open letter to my son

My heart - my one and only child, today I celebrate you and all of your 6 years of life. Anthony - It's an honor to have been chosen as your mother. Although, I was scared of being a mother and was completely ok (or as I thought) with not having children I sit in front of my laptop and type away while being overjoyed with tears...tears of mixed emotions of joy and sadness because you are growing and no longer the baby or toddler running around yelling sweet nothings all over the house.  I am obsessed and in love with seeing you grow before my eyes and becoming a big boy. I am doing the best I can to be the best mother to you and when you tell me I am the "best mommy EVER and in the whole wide world" besides making my heart melt, you reassure me that I am doing a good job at the best and hardest most rewarding job their is.

I promise to make your proud and I promise to continue to love you, spoil you, educate you and teach you the rights and wrongs of life. I will support your goals and ambitions in hopes that you will play an important role in society when you grow up. There is no doubt you will change lives and bring happiness and entertainment to the people around you as you are doing now as a child. It is my duty in life to make sure you are always and forever happy. kisses on my necklace! 

Te amo Mi Amorcito!
I love you little boy!

5 Things You Should Know If You Plan On Dating a Woman About Her Bu$iness

5 Things You Should Know If You Plan On Dating a Woman About Her Bu$iness

As I've grown older, I have also gotten wiser. I am a woman about my business and so are lots of of my girlfriends and many of you reading this today. We work hard and make it happen on our own so when its time for love or dating we don't have time for the games. 
 If you are about to date a woman or if you are married and your wife has their sh*it together this is what you/men have to know. 

  1. She wants you to call her - use the phone and no that doesn't mean texting. She wants to hear your voice, and you should want to hear hers too. 
  2. She wants you to make plans - Be the man, and take charge of the "date night" and be specific...this means making plans prior to the "date, trip etc" so that she has time to prepare. Most of the time, we are the ones making decisions all day, it be nice for someone to decide for us for a change.
  3. If you are texting; respond in a timely manner - most people carry their phones 24/7 even to the potty, so their shouldn't be an excuse as to why you don't respond to a "Good Morning" text or "How is your day going?"
  4. She will tell it like it is - so don't expect her to sugar coat how she feels about you or anyone around you. She knows her opinion matters and if you are attempting a life with her, get used to it. 
  5. She wants you to say what you're going to do and do it - She isn't a drill sergeant but woman get annoyed with people who say one thing and don't do it or do another. For the love of God, follow through with your word or be gone!

Ladies and gentlemen please chime in on the comments and let me know your I wrong?!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year SpoiledOnes! 

It's been a whole month or more since I have blogged about anything, but if you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat you have seen that I am staying busy. The holidays came and went a new year has started and I began the first week of the year traveling to Dallas for 3 days of meetings and met a few friends. I am hoping to announce something great soon, but in the mean time just crossing my fingers for something good to happen. I serve an awesome God and he knows exactly what my heart desires. 

It's no secret that I am in love with music, all types of music. When I found out that Boost Mobile is now offering unlimited music streaming on iHeartRadio; I thanked the music gods.  This means, if you have a Boost Mobile phone you can now listen to all IHeartRadio's channels without incurring additional data charges and y'all know data charges suck! The streaming is not only on iHeart but also on Pandora and others...for more info click here.
