Your Kid's Vision is Important! #MiVisionWorks

Taking care of my eyes is important to me. Not only because my vision is important, but because Texas is a "bright" state. The sun puts a lot of strain on my eyes and I love being outside with my baby boy. 

I have had 20/20 vision my entire life, but my husband is blind as a bat! So as our son is getting older, I am making it more and more of a priority to check his eyes. 

Because this is an important issue to me, I was excited to partner with VisionWorks and learn more about kid's vision needs. 

Did y'all know that 60% of our kids that are classified as "problem learners" have some sort of undetected vision issue? 

That is a lot of our kids that are experiencing issues that can just be avoided with an annual eye exam. 

Read this to learn more: 

VisionWorks and Davis Vision launched the Let's Go See campaign to help inform parents about the importance of an annual eye exam. Their goal is to help 10,000 kids with their eye issues by donating exams and glasses. They are working with Prevent Blindness and Big Brother Big Sister to help pinpoint those who are in most need. 

But, you can even nominate a kid or organization for an exam at

I took the pledge to ensure my baby has the best eye health, I hope you do too!

 Dia de los Ninos project with AC

Happy Monday loved ones! 

If you have kids, you know that when they get out of school those little creatures walk out hungry and always want a snack. So in honor of Dia de los Niños, Anthony and I baked a cake. We didn't just bake any cake, we baked a Cocoa Puffs Chocolate cake with marshmallows  If you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat, than you know I spend a whole lot of time with him and you may have noticed he loves him some Cocoa Puffs and chocolate cake so why not combine his favorites into one?!

I went to the for inspiration but Anthony is simple and picky, you know how kids are so we agreed on this other option, which was simple and delicious!

We took a trip to Wal-Mart over the weekend and purchased a family size box of Cocoa Puffs, cake ingredients and I promised Anthony that he would decorate the cake and that I would bake it while he was at school. Monday after school school, he surely asked if I had baked the cake? Unfortunately for him, I had not (mommy was busy) but I did tell him he would be my assistant chef aka little helper as soon as we arrived home and he was excited about that! 

We got our ingredients together and began our project.

Watch the video, its cute!
Remember to enjoy some quality time with your children. We live in a super fast paced world that  creating lasting memories with them is key and Big G Cereals helps create those loving, fun and delicious moments for us here at home.

Ingredients I used:
General Mills Cocoa Puffs
chocolate cake mix
chocolate icing
and lots of love

Latin Billboard Awards recap #MiRitmoSprint

Latin Billboard Awards recap #MiRitmoSprint

Last week,  I attended the Latin Billboard Conference and Awards in Miami with Sprint Latino. It was my first time attending the LBB and I must say, I learned a lot from the sessions. Each session was different and unique, and with my years in the music and entertainment business it was full of insight I had known but was reiterated by the amazing talent on the panels.

 I began my week on Tuesday arriving into Miami bright and early.  The first panel was the Urban Latin music panel, followed by the music and sports panel which was very informative on how to get your music played on ESPN and how they choose their music. I also saw Marc Anthony and Marco Antonio Solis, who happens to be my mothers favorite. I actually wanted to cry on behalf of my mom. lol

Here are a few pictures and a video recap...

The Urban Latino Panel - Gente de Zona, Juan Magan, Ken-Y, Reykon, Saga Whiteblack & Zion y Lennox
Luis Coronel is such a sweetheart.

check out the video recap from the Latin Billboard Awards Red Carpet and backstage.....hope you like it!!
