A Few of My Favorite Places in Texas

Hey Guys! Happy Friday... 

There are so many things I love about Texas so when Ozarka Spring Water asked me to compile a small list of places I love in Texas, I was up for the challenge. Although, my life has been full of challenges every day, I always make sure to appreciate my surroundings and the earth we live in. One way for me to stay sane and I've said it before "water makes me feel good". Water is essential to our bodies and during these high summer times temperatures, it is vital for us to keep  our bodies and our children's body hydrated as well. I personally drink Ozarka,  I love the fresh Texas taste. Did you know that Ozarka water comes from 3 Texas springs? It sure does.

I love Houston! The food, the culture, the people, what this city has offered me being a Latina entrepreneur is something special. I remember driving through Houston, when I was in high school, heading towards Alabama to watch the olympic soccer games. I was sitting in the back of my brothers truck, looking out the window and watching the cars on the highway zoom past us, I gazed at the skyscrapers that I wasn't accustomed to seeing and saying to myself  "I am going to live here one day" and now I do. I can't wait to see what my life holds here in Houston.


Down by the tip of Texas lies a beautiful treasure island called South Padre Island, being a valley girl my family, friends and I used to drive the hour long trip to get away and play in the sand many many times. I remember high school spring break vacations with the family and crew. We would take our own canopy and chairs, relax by the beach, listen to loud music and enjoy the beautiful weather.

The history in this town is unreal. From the Alamo to the water walk, the people and the food, this is a must visit city in Texas. The vibrant colors of the city are as vibrant as the energy you feel when you're in San Antonio. Plus, if basketball season is happening you must watch a Spurs game.

HWY 6 Tacos

I was practically raised in Mexico and tacos are my life. I discovered this little treasure about 2 years ago and I vouch for the authenticity and taste of these tacos. They have both corn and flour tortillas, they also have beef, chicken, barbacoa and trompo. I usually order the corn tacos with beef and cilantro and onions. My hubby orders the flour and chicken and the charro beans. I love supporting these folks! They usually open around 8pm and stay open till midnight or later. The best tacos!!


Moody Gardens is a handful of fun on the island of Galveston. I had a blast on a recent trip, we enjoyed the lazy river, the only white sanded beach on the island, the wave pool. They also have an aquarium, zip lining, theaters and a rain forrest. Food and Fun ... definitely worth spending the day at.

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…
