My first speaking engagement at SXSW

L-R : Nicole Garner Scott, Tammy Wyatt, Me, Gabrielle Delucas, Devi Dev & Tracy G
I've attended SXSW in Austin, TX for many years. I've been both as a music lover, a spectator as well as an event planner. This year I was a totally different experience as I was a Speaker. Yes, a speaker! I arrived into Austin on Wednesday evening in the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse. A sleek, spacious, easy riding vehicle.  I enjoyed the heated seats and the comfortable ride. I also loved that Anthony, could watch his movie on the overhead DVD screen and I could listen to my music.

The panel was scheduled for Friday, March 18th and I was a bit nervous. I always seem to get nervous than arrive and all nerves fly out the window.   The panel was created for all women in business with interests in entertainment and media. During the panel 5 women who have created and marketed successful brands within the entertainment industry spoke about our experiences as woman in the industry, the challenges we face and get through them. A special thanks to Gabbi from Business Rules for Women for adding me to the panel.

 I, myself gained a little more knowledge than  I walked in with. After the panel I met a beautiful young girl from Monterrey, which is in Nuevo Leon Mexico. We talked, I shared some ideas with her and how to grow as a blogger and she was the sweetest thing. We both teared up because she was inspired by me and I was inspired by her. She is taking the leap of faith and pursuing bigger opportunities. Saludos Amiga!




I totally wanted Torchy's and I stopped at the location that President Obama visited the week prior. The line was so long and the wait would have had me late to SX events therefore we drove off and ate elsewhere. But I got the pic! 



What I wore the first day was a black jersey dress that I've had in my closet for a while....I added a green vest jacket that I purchased at Macy's because I loved it and since it was raining a bit, it helped and looked cute.

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…
