Keeping traditions alive #SoWorthIt #HHM

Growing up and till this day one of the things I love most about my mother is her style. She is always the one dressed in something colorful, a long whimsical dress or an outfit straight off of the mannequin - she that captivates your eyes and draws you to her to compliment her on either her necklace or pant suit. I remember as a child, going into a JCPenney and watching my mommy try on clothes and shop for the family. I am definitely my mothers child, as I love to dress up just as she does, put outfits together and stay current with the trends just as she does. I love to talk to different people, and my personality is very similar to my mothers.

As I have matured and gotten older,  I have realized that I have a lot of my mothers traits and some are not my personal preference lol but the ones I love about her, are some of my favorite ones as well.  Her personality, her love for Mexico and the culture that she made sure we were aware of.  I love to feed my family the same Mexican dishes my mother used to make for us growing up. We ate menudo, pozole, enchiladas, tacos, tacos and more tacos. We listened to Spanish music and danced around the house....So now as an adult I do the same at home. I make sure my boys eat the same food I grew up on and listen to some classic Spanish music as well.  I must pass on some traditions to my son that way he can pass them on to his family when he gets older. 

 Well, Fall is here and I am excited. My summer body will go to waste this season lol with all the holiday parties that are upon us. The weather is transitioning in Texas and although the leaves aren't falling off the branches just yet, they will be soon. I will be heading out of town for the weekend to the East Coast where the temperatures are much more fall like. So I took a trip to my nearby JCPenney, just as my mother would when I was a child to find her an outfit for a fun weekend. Found some boyfriends jeans and a camo green tank. I'll pair it with something and show you the final outfit on my Instagram.

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…
