Moderator For Latinas in Gaming Session With Samsung 837


Proud to rep my Dominican Republic roots for @SamsungMobileusa + #LatinosinGaming Gaming Session! I was joined by @queenjetset @naughtynimbus @erinasimon in welcoming all who identify as Latinx for an insightful #SamsungExperience!
🙏🏽💕
Never in a MILLION years did I think I would be speaking my vision. Sounds weird? It’s not. It’s one thing to have a vision in your mind and heart. It’s another to be able to speak it in the pursuit to make a difference. I want to make a difference for all Latinos; Spanish speaking or not we are family and we have to work to lift each other to better our future and cultures. All are welcomed!

PAX EAST 2019 – NFL Running Back Ahman Green, Dan Rue, Adult Swim Yacht Party, & more

It’s always a pleasure to work with brands at each PAX. Whether East or West, South, or Dev the Penny Arcade Expo is probably my most favorite gaming conference ever. Yeah, it’s better than E3.

The city has some of the best fish and chips I have ever had. And I had them once in England. Some countryside pub. Authentic.

There’s always something to do at PAX. So many people to meet easily right on the floor.

Lots of memories to make with new and old friends.

It’s always best to go Wed-Monday and just nerd tf out. It’s like a pilgrimage to the Mother Land. If you are going to make it, invest in it. Make it your own holiday.

If you are a gamer and you want to meet other gamers for a week of good times, go to PAX East. But if you still don’t believe me. Try one last thing, watch this highlight.

Radiant Journeys With Aveeno

Aveeno Positively Radiant Collection

This post contains affiliate link(s).See disclosure here. An affiliate link means I may earn advertising/referral fees if you make a purchae through my link, without any extra cost to you. It helps keeps this little blog of mine afloat. Thanks for the support!)

During the first leg of my trip to China, I hit Guangzhou staying at the White Swan Hotel on Shimian Island. Previously controlled by the French, the Island is true to the French architectural nature that resembles streets of Paris. Resonating with the French feel, I decided to pamper myself with the new Aveeno Positively Radiant collection to make my stay luxurious. 

Included in the collection is:

  • Positively Radiant Exfoliating Body Wash
  • Positively Radiant Body Lotion
  • Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector

…all delightfully amazing on the skin.

Each product provides a nourishing set of benefits to the skin that can instantly transform dry dull skin to be radiant and hydrating. The lotion offers 24-hours of moisturization for softer and smoother skin. The body wash leaves the skin healthy, smoother and smoother thanks to the scrub beads in the wash. The targeted dark spot corrector improves the look of dark spots and discoloration for uneven skin in as little as one week!

Picture Worth a Thousand Words

Now I am still using the dark spot corrector for my troublesome stretch marks and will report back on them. However, I can say that the body wash and lotion are incredible! My partner suffers from severe dry skin and yet because of psoriasis normal lotions don’t work. Super sensitive lotions are required to calm the skin and nourish the cells. Thankfully Aveeno’s products are chock full of Soy and active natural ingredients, the body wash and lotion is safe for the hypoallergenic dry skin!

It’s safe to say that my skin is grateful to have Aveeno on this trip! Most hotels body wash and lotion are actually hydration stripping. So being able to bring this with me while traveling Asia was AMAZING!

TL;DR

Go give it a try, you may discover Aveeno’s new radiant collection to be just the thing you need for your home or travel! I know it helped on my trip to absolutely give me the ‘spa resort’ feeling I needed away from home!


How Important is Daily Lotion?

So Aveeno’s daily moisturizer is clinically proven to even tone and texture in just 4 weeks to reveal naturally radiant skin. With Total Soy Complex and natural light diffusers, it helps improve the look of brown spots, leaving your skin looking luminous. It’s oil-free, hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic, but why does that matter? Why is lotion so important for the body?

The most important times to use moisturizer are after a bath, shave or exfoliation. For some, this might be twice a day. Moisturizing after a shower is very important because hot water strips all the moisture and oils out of your skin, leaving it parched and dry. While hot water may be relaxing, it also wreaks havoc on your skin. Never skip the moisturizer.

-The University of Tennessee Medical Center 

If you have never used lotion before, you may not know that it can help combat acne.  The skin on your face, ears, neck and chest are very sensitive to environmental changes and are the most frequent areas of the body known to develop skin cancer. These areas of skin also shed cells more rapidly than other parts of the body and therefore need moisture to repair itself, which allows for younger skin cells to rise to the surface. Moisturizing every day can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Both extremes are harmful to the skin and cause common skin conditions like acne.

If you do suffer from acne and these tips do not help, do see a dermatologist as it can be a more serious form of skin abnormality that needs medical treatment.

Aveeno + White Swan Hotel

My trip is this hotel was indeed complete thanks to Aveeno for giving me this collection to use on my journey. A special thank you to the team from Asia!

Sure, my trip may have been just as nice without Aveeno but it did give me the exceptional luxurious spa treatment I so desperately needed in the hot and humid city of Guangzhou.

Though this post is about Aveeno, be sure to check out my upcoming posts about my trip to Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Tokyo! I explore the most Instagramable places for you to check out!
