Waterfall Bliss

I’m into my 3rd month as a #BeClearAmbassador with La Roche-Posay,  and I have to say I’m as excited as I was the first day I received news of my ambassadorship from this luxe French skincare brand.

Each time I apply my EFFACLAR Serum Pore-Refining Anti-Aging Serum, it truly feels like a fresh splash from a waterfall on my face. And, since I just had the opportunity to visit my first waterfall in Baños, Ecuador, South America, I thought it so befitting to share my experience in conjunction with this amazing skincare product. Simply blissful!

I’ve been chosen as a La Roche-Posay Be Clear Ambassador!

Hey everyone! I have really great news to share… I’ve been chosen as a La Roche-Posay Be Clear Ambassador!  (La Roche-Posay provided a product sample for review purposes, and all opinions are clearly my own).

The timing for representing this amazing product couldn’t have been better, as I was just planning my summer adventures & wondered how I was going to travel, hike mountains, & bathe in volcanic waterfalls without creating any damage to my skin. Needless to say, I was so excited to have as part of my skincare arsenal LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS 50 MINERAL ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID  .

Not only did it protect my skin, but it gave me the freedom to go carefree of any sunburn to my fair complexion…priceless!

South Beach Wine and Food Festival 2016

This year I was very graciously invited to attend my first ever #SOBEWFF , specifically the Goya Grand Tasting Village! The event was situated right on the sand in the heart of South Beach on 13th Street, & the weather was perfect!

Have a look at some of the fun pics I captured with my friend and creative writer Yvette M. Calleiro,  author of fantasy fiction series The Chronicles of the Diasodz.

Needless to say, I had the most fun sampling my custom Coke floats & illy coffees! :))

KFC TV Spot, ‘Enfoca a tu familia’

Check out my latest KFC national TV spot for the hispanic market!

I had so much fun hanging out on set all day as the fun, funky, cool “Aunt” of this family reunion.

A day in my life as a FTLStrikers Captain/Choreographer

When I was contacted by Pierre Rivard of Up In Front, I jumped at the chance to work with him as part of a cool, little documentary on what it is like to be a dancer/choreographer for Fort Lauderdale’s only NASL pro soccer team, The Strikers!

Here, you get a sneak peak into the rehearsal, game-day preparation, fan zone, half-time performance, and post-performance photo-ops with our loyal fans.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to have worked for Up In Front and to share the experience with everyone. Enjoy!

What an awesome night it was replete with a fashion show featuring the Haute Hippie Spring 2015 Collection and a very special performance by Neil Goldberg’s Cirque Dreams , whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with several years ago 🙂

Sunny 107.9FM Morning Show Fun!

Working with Deena Lang, Jennifer Ross, & Bill Adams of the Sunny 1079 Morning Show was such a blast!

Sunny 1079 Morning Show

When I got called and asked if I wanted to spend the morning playing with makeup on this crew, it didn’t take but more than a couple of seconds to answer “yes”! So, for this gig, I went in as a freelance makeup artist with EPS Entertainment Photography Specialists to turn out great head shots for this entertaining trio. (Of course, I didn’t have time to get my own makeup done before this shot :/)

I’m so happy with the results. They all look great!
