Don't Miss Important Eye Exams For Our Kiddos

This post has been sponsored by Visionworks. All opinions are mine alone. #MiVisionworks

Where has time gone?  A full week of school has come and went and HTownKid aka my beautiful son, Anthony is now a 1st grader. From what he has shared with me about his time in class he's had a wonderful time. With all the hustle and bustle of enjoying our summer vacation and planning for back to school we didn't make time for his eye exam.

I have to be truthful, I wasn't planning on having his eyes checked because for one I never wore glasses as a child. Secondly, he's never mentioned he has troubles with his vision, but the more I thought about it I must get his eyes checked because his daddy was a glasses baby so in reality; there is a 50/50 chance. I'm glad to be partnering with Vision Works to promote the importance of having our kids' eyes checked. They have an easy to use and full of information page for the "Let's go see" campaign that you guys will learn from just as I did.  

It's recommend that children get a comprehensive eyes exam between the ages of 3 and 6 so according to the recos we are due for a check up. 

What are the signs that my child might have trouble seeing?
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Squinting 
  • Holding books close to their face or too far away
  • Sitting close to the TV, computer or tablet
  • Twisting or tilting their head to favor one eye
  • Frequent blinking or rubbing their eyes
  • Inability to judge distance properly (bumping into things)
  • Decreased performance in school and athletics

One thing that Anthony does do often is sit close to the TV's at home plus play on his tablet and phone and although I have reiterate it every time he does it anyway - one more reason to get his vision checked. 

We have a vision appointment next week, I'll keep you guys updated on the outcome. Wish me luck and hope its not like his hair appointment. If he happens to need glasses, Vision Works has a great and stylish selection of glasses for all children and their personal style.

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…
