sharing what I learned on twitter

Last weekend I attended the Johnson & Johnson “2014 FIFA World Cup Wellness Tour” at Walgreens #CelebrateEveryGoal, the perfect way to celebrate summer time and get ready with all the healthy essentials we need for summer fun.  These type of events are a favorite of mine because it is for the whole family, so the kids actually learn while having fun, and one of my favorite parts is getting coupons to buy my family summer essentials at a very affordable price; sunscreen, face and body moisturizer, etc..

I really appreciate when a company like Johnson & Johnson teams up to bring back to the community. This time, not only everybody that attended the event was able to buy the summer essentials at a special price and take home a few coupons, but Walgreens also provided free health checks valued at $100. Live music, giveaways, product samples, autograph signings with former Mexican National champion player Germán Villa, appearances by FULECO® mascot, PANINI® album and sticker trading and Sports injury prevention activities was part of the event for 6 hours.

If you ever have a wellness event like this in your area I really recommend that you take a few minutes of you time and stop by. You can thank me later.

Summer_shoes Generation Beauty is an event for creators, beauty lovers, brands and everything in between that wants to connect, learn and grow their community. Generation beauty has great workshops and meet ups by top beauty gurus and established professionals. This is my second time attending the event and I could see a significant growth and improvement from last year and I am so excited to see it grow even more in the years to come.

New Avon fragrance “Flor Alegria / Kate del castillo es la nueva cara de Avon

My beautiful friend Joelly Mejia and contributor for this blog assisted to a very intimate lunch with Kate del castillo as the new face of Flor Alegria the new fragrance of Avon. perfume-avon-flor-alegria

The Scent: Exhilarating and colorful, delightful scent and sweet says Joelly. The fruity floral fragrance opens with a burst of Juicy Crimson Passion Fruit for a rich, exotic, mouthwatering spark. This delightfully refreshing top note leads to a delicate and timelessly feminine heart of Bulgarian Rose Petals, grounded in exclusive Scent Trek™ Blue Iris for a graceful note of playful florally.

The Bottle: Flor Alegria is packaged in a bright colorful bottle and is adorned with a beautiful vibrant flower embellishment, which adds to the cheerful and magical joy of the fragrance.

The Inspiration: A brilliant shower of vibrantly colored flower petals cascades down to surround and embrace her. She delights in the unexpected thrill of the bold hues, soft petals, and enticing scent that excites her senses and uplifts her soul. Flor Alegria captures the energizing power of color and light, bringing you the sunny optimism and unlimited possibilities of a perfect summer day anytime.

The Face: Kate del Castillo, one of Mexico’s most celebrated actresses, embodies the radiant and lively attitude captured by this joyful scent. She has been working with Avon since 2013 and most recently served as the face of Avon’s Flor Violeta fragrance.

PRICE: $28
AVAILABLE: June 2014
WHERE TO BUY: Available exclusively through Avon Representatives. To locate an Avon Representative call 1-800-FOR-AVON or visit www.avon.com.

My Natural hair Diary “Miami” / Diario de un pajón en Miami

natural_hair_girl

Hola chicas, I just got back from Miami, well not really, but I had so much fun there and so much work here that I still can’t get back on track. You all may know that this trip was possible thanks to Zotos professional and in case you don’t know, they carry several product lines available at Sally’s like: Age beautiful and Biotera among others. I wanted to keep my routine simple so I just took Biotera 5-in-1 with me, you can click here to learn more about it, Biotera curl creme and my oil mix.

  • Day zero: Monday March 31st, I co-washed my hair with Biotera 5-in-1, I sealed with oil and applied Biotera curl creme (photo 1 below). My plan was to use the curl creme and oil on my water mist to refresh my hair during the day in case the humid weather started to play hard on me. I took the red-eyed flight and fell asleep the minute I put my feet on the plane, lol but before, I pulled my hair into a high pony tale (a.k.a. Pineapple).
  • Day one : Tuesday April 1st i did nothing to my hair, it was perfect (picture up there)
  • Day Two: Wednesday, April 2d I spritz my hair with my magical water mist (curl creme, water and oil) It was a little bit big, but you know what they say” Big hair don’t care”-photo 3. At night it was out of proportion so I just twisted it in the front so people could se my face 🙂photo 4- 

natural_hair_diary

Day three -Thursday  April 3- photos 5 & 6 –  I was too tired to do anything to my hair after an amazing night aboard a yacht thanks to McDonald’s , so what do you do? bun it up chicas. Forget my face, my crazy bun was cute.
Day Four: Friday April 4 – photo 7 & 8-  It was time to rock my curls on my last day in Miami, so I did another co-wash with biotera 5-in 1 followed by the same products I used day zero. It only took me like 25 minutes to do my hair, because as I told you before, the Biotera 5-in-1 does an amazing job cleansing, detangling and hydrating my hair. I dried my hair about 80 % with the hair dryer, because never ever go to to meetings or reunion with your hair dripping wet.

Picture 9 is me today April 10th, I haven’t washed my hair yet, but my hair still looks shiny and beautiful (with a hat on, lol)

And that is all for my hair diary at Hispz14 Miami, the weather change was almost unnoticed by my hair this time, different from last year, or maybe I had better or more appropriate products this time.. Please let me know if the weather change affects your hair in any way and if you tried any of these products; how are they working for you? Remember you can find them at sally’s

5 travel beauty essentials / Mis esenciales de viaje

Me and famous Latin actor and singer carlos Ponce #hispz13

hola chicas, I can’t believe how time flies, remember last year when I was so excited about a blogger conference called Hispanicize? well I am ready to attend this year again from april 1-4,.This year I will go hand to hand with  “Zotos Professional” that kindly is sponsoring me for this amazing event.
It is amazing how curly hair can react to weather changes, yes the weather in California is warm, but it is not humid as it is in Miami, so I need to be prepared with the best products, last year my hair reacted immediately in a puffy way, lol, but you know me, I don’t really care how big my hair is, it does what it does and I let it be.

This year I want to keep my beauty routine simple, I don’t wanna be carrying around a bunch of hair products, thanks to zotos professional I will be caring my beauty time saver Biotera cleansing conditioner 5-in-1 (here is how is works) that I have been testing out for a few weeks and I want to challenge him to the humid weather of Miami, so follow me on Instagram and twitter for my daily hair diary, and if you are a blogger and going to hispz14 please ask me for your sample, because you too deserve to save time in your beauty routine and focus on learning.
I will be taking a few other beauty products but in this post, I want to show 5 travel essentials that I am obsessed with right now.

beauty_essentials

  1. Biotera 5-in-1 cleansing conditioner, and if you want to know why, read here  available at Sally’s 
  2. PuffCuff: the only hair clamp for thick, coil, textured hair. I am loving this hair piece not only for a puff, but it is amazing to wrap my hair around and creates a sexy bun. more info here 
  3. Cabeau Mid night Magic Sleep Mask lets you create the custom shape that works for you to guarantee 100% blackout and complete rest. Features an adjustable, padded nose bridge that easily molds to custom fit your nose, has a silky soft interior with inner rounded eye liners to avoid contact with your eyelids, cones with free memory foam earplugs which can be stored in the sleep mask side pocket, plus a few other features.Buy it here 
  4. Urban Decay, ultra definition loose powder:  silky, weightless formula blurs flaws, sets makeup and cuts shine—all while creating a luminous, demi-matte Naked finish, perfect for a humid weather like Miami.
  5. Mouth Watchers Toothbrush offers a breakthrough in oral care by providing the optimal cleaning experience. In an event like this we have to be camera ready and nothing screams beauty more than clean, pretty teeth and this revolutionary antimicrobial dual layer flossing bristles, reach into areas untouched by prior toothbrushes, leaving teeth and gums feeling just as clean as after a professional dental cleaning, it is perfect to travel because it eliminates 99.9% of bacteria that builds up on bristles in 6 hours due to our proprietary silver bristle technology.

I was invited to Smart and final preview night in San Dimas California, a city that I love and enjoy any time I visit, I even go to stores there that I already in my city, just because I love San Dimas -call me crazy, lol- and now I have another reason to visit: “smart and final new store” #chooseSmart 🙂

Smart and final is a great place to do a one stop shop of everything from produce to meats. Smart & Final carries warehouse size items without a club fee, making shopping easy, less expensive and less daunting to shop, than in a big warehouse store. Smart & Final is a perfect place to shop for all your food needs, bakery items, etc. and I particularly love this new location because they have a huge selection of organic foods and produce.greens_for_healthy_hair_#shop

The preview night was super fun, and I really enjoyed taking my daughters with me, it was like a girls night out. We got the chance to look around the store and the big aisles while listening to live music and try some delicious food and drinks.

The Smart and Final community social circular is definitely a must visit site where you can find a lot recipes and ideas: http://community.smartandfinal.com
