Things that make you blush #PiroposTraducidos

We have all had that one guy or girl when they would say those “piropos” that would make you swoon.  If you don’t know what “piropos” is, it’s compliment or a pick up line that’s silly or sweet. Like “Are you religious? ‘Cause you’re the answer to all my prayers”  pickup lines that make your eyes roll or make your stomach full of butterflies. I have had my fair share of “piropos” and they always make blush and make me crack up because they get sillier and sillier every time.

One thing that I am forever obsessed with is fresh breath, If you’re trying to “court” me and it smells like something died in your mouth it’s a deal breaker. I am all about dental health and keeping my teeth nice and white with fresh breath. You never know if one of those “piropos” end up with a kiss! 😉 That’s why I love Crest Complete because they offer so many options to keep your teeth nice and healthy. With fresh breath you always feel more confident and ready conquer your day.

Green Works: You Don’t Have to Be Ridiculous to be Green #YouDontHavetoBe

Clorox Green Works Logo

Do you feel the pressure to be green? A recent survey of 600 women revealed that in this day and age of green-this and eco-that, there is even more pressure to be environmentally conscious than ever before.  Did you know that: 544,000: Trees would be saved if every household in the United States replaced just one roll of virgin fiber paper towels (70 sheets) with 100 percent recycled ones.  Make sure you know what you can and can’t recycle  when I was learning how to recycle I made Boo boo’s left and right and recycled things that shouldn’t have been. So I definitely suggest you check out the rules for your area and make sure you don’t send anything in that can’t be processed. Each city has its own specifics, so try to follow those guidelines as best you can.

It’s not to hard being Eco-friendly, here are some steps to put you in the right direction

  • Recycle, Recycle, Recycle, you will be surprised how rewarding it is to recycle. Not only are you saving the earth! But Where I live every time you recycle you actually earn points for it!
  • Use Reusable bags when you shop.
  • Try to purchase locally grown foods, the benefits of purchasing locally grown foods is local food is more nutritious! Once harvested, produce quickly loses nutrients. Since local produce is cold right after it’s picked it retains more nutrients.
  • Clean your home with Eco Friendly Cleaners like Clorox Green Works products, they are inexpensive and good for the environment.
  • There are so many things you can do to be more Eco friendly!

greenworks

In a recent survey from the Clorox company, ninety-three percent of women agree that being environmentally friendly should be accessible to everyone. Most women say affordability makes green product purchases more accessible (63%) than any other factor. That’s a big percentage! I know eating or buying organic is not budget friendly but they do have Food Co-ops in your city that provide discount prices for so much fresh fruit and vegi’s. Even buying cleaning products can be a  bit expensive that’s why i always make my own cleaning products ( I will post a quick homemade cleaning products below) or buy Clorox Green works cleaning supplies! Which are budget friendly and safe for the environment.

How to make your own All-purpose disinfectant: Mix 2 cups water, a few drops of natural soap, and 15 drops each of tea tree and lavender organic essential oil. You can spray this on all kinds of home surfaces. Just don’t use this on glass, as it will streak. This basic cleaner is so safe and gentle you could literally spray it on your kids, and they’d be fine. I do suggest baths over disinfecting the kiddos though Link to more homemade cleaning supplies. http://www.inhabitots.com/how-to-make-kid-safe-homemade-green-cleaning-supplies/

About Green Works: 

Green Works products clean with the same power that people have come to expect from The CloroxCompany, and are priced comparable to non-premium traditional cleaners and available at mainstream retailers. Eliassen added, “Our products back-up our marketing message. You don’t have to compromise on clean to be green. The Green Works brand provides naturally-derived products with extraordinary cleaning power that are fairly priced and available where regular people shop.

Do you feel pressure about being green? What do you do to be green?

Clorox was kind enough to gift one of  my readers a Clorox green works gift basket so you can do your part in being green!

Curvy Girl star visits Puerto Rico!

I love the Reality Show Curvy Girls and getting to meet and be at a behind the scenes shoot with one of the stars was an amazing experience. Lornalitz Baez arrived at Photographer Vanessa Velez’s Studio for hair and makeup which was done by and amazing MUA named Raiza Gonzalez Montes.

We talked so much about the Industry, her show, and her family whom she adores, having such a wonderful time, she is so easy to talk to, I felt I had known her forever.

After hair and makeup was done we headed to Piñones, it has a beautiful beach there and started the shoot, we were also joined by another great photographer named Enuel Viera whom helped out with the shoot, I saw some of the professional pics and was at awe, just beautiful!

Gold box deal of the day: FarCry3 #FarCryGold

far_cry3_logo

Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please visit Amazon.com to get your own copy of Far Cry 3, today’s Gold Box Deal of the Day! I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.

Nothing says relaxation better than breaking away from the stressful tasks of daily life and immersing yourself into a different world. One where you make the rules and see out your own decisions. One where you can feel like top dog. That’s why after a days work and trials I like to relax and start up my console and play some video games. My favorite type of video games are the ones that are like a second world, one where you can truly immerse yourself into. Get lost! A game like FarCry 3. With it’s beautiful graphics and stunning visuals, I’ll be questioning whether or not I would like to partake in my usual daily rituals. Or stay in this world, one where I’m the heroine.

Far_Cry_3_PAL_box_art

I prefer games like this, it’s the ultimate immersion. Do what you want, and be who you want. Games like shooters I’ll play if I need to get my frustrations out. Pwning randoms online, getting top score and aiming for the highest K/D. It’s the utmost pleasure to be the smack talker, than to be the smack talk-ee. Maybe even fighting games sometimes too. Visualize the person that gave you the most stress that day. Now paste their head over Ryu’s in Street Fighter and go to town on them.

But games like FarCry 3… The scenery, the characters, the fact that 99.9% of this island’s wildlife wants me dead! For the sake of relaxation I will take this heavy task. Nothing is more fun then exploring a vast open world game; doing the main story line, or whatever it as I please. Countless hours I can spend on end with this, but sadly… My life just knocked on the door and I have to go back to the stress of the real world. But when I get back home… And I will. I will become that heroine again!

How do you unwind after a long day?

Pampering Yourself in the New Year with NIVEA #NIVEAmoments

It’s the new year and that means new resolutions, and I promised myself I would try to pamper myself in the new year. Pampering yourself is very important it’s actually makes you healthier.  Studies say ”That 90 percent of illnesses are stress related, Under stress, circulation decreases, digestion slows, and immune function is compromised.”  Pampering yourself doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. Sometimes just a few simple activities are all it takes to put you in a positive mindset. That’s why I decided to go to Sam’s club and find a few things to help me have a bit of *Me* time.

nievaaaWhen I went to Sam’s Club (you can view my shopping trip on Google+) they have a fab deal on NIVEA Essentially Enriched lotion for only $9 for two 16.9 oz bottles. That’s why I love being a  Sam’s club member I am always saving money there.  NIVEA is my go to lotion especially when I am having a dry skin day. It moisturizes my skin and makes it so smooth!

blogpic

What i decided to do for my *Me* time was run myself a hot bath, light a candle and forget all of my worries of the day. Once i got out i put on some NIEVA Lotion and slipped on my Favorite PJ’s. It felt relaxing, so i made myself some hot tea and painted my nails while watching a movie. It was a perfect night, i really need to have more *Me* time.

If you had some “ME TIME” what would you do?

Celebrating Reyes Magos with Net10 Wireless #Net10Latino

The Holiday’s aren’t over in my house till we celebrate Ryes Magos with the family. This  is a very special day in which we celebrate the arrival of the Three Kings. It takes place on January 6th  This year my family celebrated Dia de los Reyes or Rayes Magos with some help from Net10 Wireless. Like every Reyes Magos I start it at church with friends and family. We had a beautiful service, the three kings visited, Joseph and Mary were there and Baby Jesus. The day was filled with love and laughter! They put on a play at the church about the three kings story. Here are some of the photos below.

We decided to have dinner at La Carreta with the family, of course I had to get my Cafecito to get me through the rest of the day!

One of our traditions in my family is to leave some hay, water and shoes under the bed. When i was kid i thought that was crazy! But as i got older i understood the meaning of doing this. Part of the meaning was to show us that we don’t need gifts to make us happy, all we need is our family and friends, faith and love for one another.
As the day continued our day we ended up going to the arcade near our home, and we had such a blast playing MS. Pac-Man with my brother.

I was so glad I was able to document my Reyes magos with my Net10 phone! Of course posted these photo’s on instagram with my cell phone.

The Hip Hop Dance experience: Gets you moving in the new year! #UbiHipHop

HHX_LOGO_HiRes

Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please visit Ubi.com to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. #UbiChamps

Recently I had the chance to review a great game The Hip Hop dance experience and it made me work up a sweat! Once I started I couldn’t stop playing, the music and the dancing just sucks you in. I danced, or (what I call dancing ) for an hour straight I didn’t even notice the time going by so fast till my brother told me to stop. haha

IMG_2240

The Hip Hop Experience has the top hits by artists you love now and back then. Like From Run DMC It’s Tricky or Naughty by Natures’s Hip hop hurray. To Rihanna “Hard” and LMFAO’s Sexy and I know it. I loved that they had some of the old school music I grew up with in this game. I was jamming to TLC;s Creep, It’s Tricky by RUN DMC don’t get me started, you should have seen me singing and dancing along haha!

What i have noticed with alof of Ubisoft’s games is the different modes they have.

The Hip Hop Dance Experience offers several different gaming options.  They are:
  • Dance Party _ Dance with your friends/family
  • Dance Battle – Dance against your friends/family
  • Power Skooling – Step-by-step tutorials
  • Dance Marathon – Dance the night away non-stop

One part I really love is the workout mode, I love working out and anything that gets my heart pumping get’s an A+ in my book. And the skooling mode has my name written all over it. I have always wanted to learn how to dance to hip hop so now I have the chance to.

IMG_2243

If you are looking for a game that can help you keep in shape or a game just to have fun. Then the Hip Hop dance experience is for you! One of my New years resolution is to stick to a workout regimen that I find fun and I would be consistent with. Thats why I love this game, my brother and I were having a blast and  we didn’t even notice we were breaking a sweat and burning calories at the same time.

IMG_2251

*Please note that this game is rated T and you may want to just play this game with your older teens or friends*

I love that you can have up to 4 players which is great for some of the parties I have at my home. I can’t wait to pop this in the next party I have, I can just hear the laughing and crying as we try to bust a move!

IMG_2248

About the game:
Drop it like it’s hot with hip-hop’s hottest dance game. The Hip-Hop Dance Experience is the first authentic hip-hop game in the dance category. Dance to the most popular tracks of the genre with original moves designed by the most famous hip-hop choreographers in the industry.
