The Latina Makers Market

I may not be the craftiest person around, but there is something about making things with your hands. I once took a sewing class and made a tote bag. It was a very proud moment…I still think about that day. Even without having any sewing talent whatsoever, I was still so proud of the fact that I made something! When We All Grow Summit announced that they were bringing back the Latina Makers Market, I was excited. Not only do I get to go shopping, BUT I get to support these women and their craft. From Frida-inspired art and dolls…

My Tips Packing for Hispanicize

There are a lot of reasons why I love what I do. Having a community of influencers and creators that I can connect and learn with is just the icing on the cake. That’s why I love going to events like Hispanicize. And this year I’m excited announce that I’m an official Hispanicize 2017 Social Correspondent. It’s the largest annual event for Latino trendsetters and newsmakers in digital content creation, journalism, marketing, entertainment and tech entrepreneurship—and this will be my fifth time attending! Are you planning on being a part of Hispanicize and the Dime Summit in Miami this year?…

Fundraiser I’m a St. Jude Hero

I have this best friend who loves to run marathons. She’s pretty good at it too. I always tell myself that I would love to run in one, but this bum ankle has it’s own ideas. Anyways, Mrs. Marathon Runner asked me to join her in Nashville as she ran the Rock’n’Roll marathon in April. You know, to cheer her on, support her, and of course get our Nashville on. As I looked over the event web site, I noticed that it wasn’t just any ol’ marathon. This one gave the runners the opportunity to fundraise and support St. Jude…

A Night to Remember

I want to say I have a confession, but I think you guys know me well enough to know that I’m kinda sorta obsessed with sports. Just a little bit…OK…a lot. I don’t know where it comes from. But, there’s just something about the passion, drive, and competitiveness of athletes that I truly admire and respect. So, when Toyota invited me to attend the Chris Paul Family Foundation Celebrity Server dinner, I could not say YES fast enough. Not only would I be on hand as they raise money and awareness for this amazing foundation, but I would get a…

Hispanicize and My JCPenney Experience

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with JCPenney and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own. My time in Miami has come and gone. If you follow me on social media, you might have seen that I was out at the annual Hispanicize conference. An entire week of Latino trendsetters and newsmakers in the digital space. I was sponsored by JCPenney (watch my video below) and invited to speak on a keynote panel at the inaugural DiMe Summit. Whenever I attend a social media conference, I’m always there to learn and network. But, I will admit I…

Inside the GRAMMY Gift Lounge

To say I’m just a fan of music is a little bit of an understatement. I think music is necessary for me to function. It’s that serious. I love so many genres and eras of music, I just can’t settle on one. I guess I’m kind of like the GRAMMYs—I appreciate them all. And as you know, the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards® will air on February 15th and I was invited to check out the runway-inspired GRAMMY Gift Lounge. Open to presenters and performers during three full days of rehearsals at STAPLES Center, I bumped into Shad Moss (AKA Bow…

Becky G is great at creating catchy Pop songs that you can’t get out of your head. And that’s OK because you actually like her music and don’t mind singing it over and over. It’s been days since I got back from seeing her perform in Miami and even weeks since her exclusive live performance at a local AT&T store. This little chica is talented and her fans adore her! What makes her music even better is she’s a down to earth girl, who is super sweet, with the right amount of fierceness. And I’m happy to share that she has teamed up with AT&T to bring her biggest fans (AKA Beasters) a chance of a lifetime—an exclusive VIP experience.
