After weeks of having Remy at home with grandma it was about time for her to go back to daycare for the remainder of our time here in Arizona. Getting back into the swing of things has been tough, especially when there’s so much going on (packing, packing and more packing) but there are some steps I’ve taken to make things a little more manageable at Casa de Mason. As a way to making things easier for me I’ve put into motion a little ritual for Remy’s bath time.Having a toddler completely mobile and getting into everything is the true struggle, my friends, particularly when her hair is in major need of a trim but with JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® products Remy’s hair is nourished, beautiful and super easy for those busy evenings.

We’ve been using JOHNSON’S® Baby products from day one because it was exclusively created as a pure, mild and gentle product for children, a song to a mothers ears I tell ya! So when Remy’s hair started to get a little on the crazy side I knew I could count on JOHNSON’S® Baby products to help me tame, but most importantly maintain, those curls. JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® not only leaves Remy’s hair smelling fantastic, but it also detangles her hair easily and without any fuss.

JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® three step hair care regimen: (1) Use the JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES 2-1 Shampoo for curly or thin hair (2) When brushing the hair, use the JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES leave in conditioner. (3) Spray the JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES detangler to stubborn tangles and style hair as desired.

Today I thought it would be fun to share some of the simple and classic hairstyles I do for Miss Remy in hopes that maybe I can help you get the creative juices flowing for you and your little one!

My Divina Latina Life

photo IMG_5352_zps567dac40.jpg

*Disclosure: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Unilever and Latina Bloggers Connect. As always, all opinions are my own.

While I like to call myself a blogger, I like to specifically identify myself as a style blogger. As such, it’s only obvious that I like to Be Red Carpet Ready at all times; it comes with the territory. Don’t get me wrong, with the duties of the a new mom there are many days where you can find me in leggings, a tee, a high topknot, and morning breath at four in the afternoon, so my getting ready routine must be simple and on point. This is where Divina Latina products available at CVS have become my go-to products of choice! 

I am always searching for good skincare products that don’t cost an arm and a leg but also pack a punch with how effective they are. I’ve recently come by POND’s Luminous Collection wet cleansing towelettes and might I say I’m a convert! They are perfect for wiping off the sweat and grime after an intense workout and also for nights where I don’t have time to wash my face but still need to remove my makeup. The quilted texture of the towelettes makes it easy to wipe the day off, while still keeping my skin moisturized and radiant. A winning combination in my book!

For those days where a five minute shower is all I can squeeze in, I’d been searching for a product that helps me smell like I live in a garden and  Caress’ Tempting Whisper body wash does just that! The sophisticated floral scent of white peony with the fruity accent of red plums, um SMELLGASM! After a quick shower my entire bathroom smells like a garden of fresh flowers, who doesn’t love that?

Divina Latina products are now eligible for ExtraBucks at your local CVS. Winning!! Any place where I can save a little extra mula is a good place in my book! Knowing that for every $50 I spend on beauty products gets me $5 ExtraBucks is music to my recessionista ears.

Heart of Haiti Campaign

2010 was a destructive year for natural disasters. Wildfires, landslides, floods, blizzards and earthquakes to name a few, but none was more shocking than the very first natural disaster experienced by the people of Haiti. In January 2010, Haitians suffered through a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that collapsed many of their buildings and killed more than 250,000 people. Two years later, the tiny country is still struggling to rebuild what was left of their home with the help of funds given by world governments.

But how can we help? Macy’s, along with social entrepreneur Willa Shalit and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, have launched the Heart of Haiti campaign.This campaign helps support Haitian artisans by providing jobs to feed their families and pay for their children’s education. By simply purchasing one of their more than 40 handcrafted home decor items, financial benefits are given to an estimated 1,500 people of Haiti. The collection features items that were made by recycled and sustainable materials. Eco friendly is always a plus!

Now head over to your local Macy’s and help support a great cause by shopping! Easy as that!

Choose Skin Health


Summer is in full swing and now is the perfect time to start protecting your skin! While days are being spent out enjoying the sun, it is the worst time to neglect your skin, as it is continually exposed to harsh UVB and UVA rays.

I personally take precautionary measure when I know I’ll be spending the day in the sun. However skin protection isn’t limited to the summer months. Living in Arizona, I am constantly aware of the sun exposure that I am subjected all the time. Here are my tips for protection against the sun:

  • applying chap stick/lip balm that is SPF 15 or higher to fight ultraviolet rays
  • light-colored clothing when spending time outdoors so you won’t attract the sun
  • wearing a hat to help protect your scalp from getting sunburned
  • donning on sunglasses to protect both your eyes and the skin underneath that often gets ignored when applying sunscreen
  • year around golden rule - applying moisturizer daily with SPF to both your face and your ears.

There are scary consequences that comes with being diagnosed with skin cancer.  As one of the most preventable of the cancers, skin cancers is a serious issue that we tend to ignore. Well, its stops now! Neutrogena has teamed up with the American Society of Dermatological Surgery (ASDS) to help spread awareness and educate the public on how to fight against sun damage. They’ve teamed up to inform us on healthy sun-safe preventative measures that can be taken to help prevent skin cancer. They are inviting all of us to join the Neutrogena Choose Skin Health campaign to assist in spreading the word and stopping the epidemic of skin cancer at its tracks.

How can you start? Through their collaboration with ASDS, Neutrogena is offering free screenings and self exam kits to us all! Simply click here to find a location near you. Neutrogena is also offering up 15% off your next purchase if you sign up to receive special email offers. An affordable way to keep your skin safe? You know that’s how I do!
