Interview with Suzette Quintanilla at #MACSELENA launch

Had the opportunity to meet and interview Suzette and Chris Perez about what the MAC Collections means to them and to her legacy.
I was born in Corpus Christi, and I along with millions of girls feel we have a special connection with Selena. The memory I have of her, is when I was 9 years old living in CC and my mother working at a local radio station. Every day after school, mom being a working mom would pick us up from school and we would go to the station. There we would do our homework, watch mom work and at times my sister Kandy and I would do voice overs for one of the DJ's - not knowing I was getting my feet wet for this industry I didn't know I would be in.  One day while mom was doing her thing and I was left alone, I sat in someones desk and noticed a few telephone numbers on the wall...they read La Mafia, La Sombra, Selena....ding ding ding. I knew she had a local number and by 9 years old I also knew that the other numbers were long distance. I immediately picked up the phone, dialed and it rang. I remember my little heart was pumping with excitement and nervousness - a man picked up and said "Hello" - I tried to change my voice to an adult voice and began with "Hi, this is Yvonne with the Super Q, can I speak to Selena?" I think the man was Mr. Quintanilla - he asked me to hold...I did - than another person picked up the phone and again my little voice asked for her and she responded with "Selena just got back from Houston and she's resting, we'll let her know you called." I hung up and laughed, smiled and kept on with my day.

Now as an adult, I realize that is my personal memory of her. No one else can say they called Selenas house. lol 

Anyway, I've had these photos that I took inside the museum in Corpus Christi this last time for the Mac Selena launch.  Below is the video with Chris and Suzette, we spoke about her legacy.... please watch it and share it!

We miss you Selena!

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…
