NEUTROGENA® Acne Selfie Challenge!(GIVEAWAY!)

 

This a compensated post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and NEUTROGENA®. Opinions and experiences with product are my OWN! <3



 (GIVEAWAY!)
Hey guys! 
This week I'm teaming up with Neutrogena to encourage you to bring out your inner Kim Kardashian!  
Err- I mean SELFIE wise. 
We all have an inner Kim K, and not the whole "selfish selfie" side, but it's that confidence we're always either too shy to bring out, or too embarrassed. We need to stop being this way, and ENJOY today! I think of selfies as documenting life-in the moment. Don't think of it as superficial, instead think how we're never going to be as young as we are today. So why not celebrate by creating memories?!
Here are my tips on the perfect selfie while practicing good skin care with the Neutrogena® oil-free Pink Grapefruit Line!


Let's be honest- pimples SUCK. Especially when they pop up in the most inconvenient times. One way to tame acne is through good skin care. Neutrogena® oil-free Pink Grapefruit Line has products to prevent those random pimples.
Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes - Pink Grapefruit are perfect for taking off your make up at night without leaving your face greasy.
Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub and Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser will do the trick when it comes to pesky break outs, while delivering a refreshing blast of 100% naturally derived grapefruit extract and vitamin C. Did I mention it smells amazing?!


  1. LIGHTING IS EVERYTHING: Natural lighting facing you is the best for selfies. Not only that, just letting the sun touch your skin as you soak up it's positive vibes and energy!  But also...make sure it doesn't wash out your face!
  2. SELFIES WITH RANDOM THINGS: Memories are the best when they're captured in a picture. I always try to create memories via selfie by taking pictures with random, interesting things. Then you can look back and think, "Did I really do that?!".
  3. SELFIES WITH FRIENDS: I try to take selfies with my friends all the time. First, a normal picture, then a completely silly one. Life isn't meant to be lived so seriously, so a funny face selfie with your BFF is a must!
  4. SMIZE: Definition via Urban Dictionary:  'Smile with your eyes,'  "as coined by supermodel Tyra Banks on the thirteenth cycle of America's Next Top Model. The art of smizing is epitomized by the legendary Super Smize."  BASICALLY- smile with your eyes! It helps to thinking about something that makes your heart happy. For me, it was BREAD!
    Just kidding, it was my puppy!



 ON TO THE GIVEAWAY!

Giveaway requirements! 
Post a selfie on Instagram using the #NeutrogenaSelfie hashtag and submit the link to your selfie here: Rafflecopter giveaway.
Giveaway will close on August 29, 2014.

Good Luck!!

COX GIG LIFE EXPERIENCE!


This is part of a sponsored campaign with Being Latino and Cox Communications. However, all opinions expressed are my own.


@AshaButterflys, me and @marieesbella
Hey guys!
Last weekend I had the chance to experience the #CoxGigLife at Chase field for the twitter party! The internet was SO FAST! I've never experienced selfies uploading so quickly. Here are some pictures from the event!
It's GIG GIRL!

"Gig Girl" with the Cox Team!

Selfies with the Cox Team!

I had so much fun at the Cox Gig Life Experience
With the One GIG Internet from Cox being so fast I had more time to do other projects at home like, plan out my Vines, write songs, edit pics with me and Joe Jonas.....LOL

But seriously, this new internet will give you time to do more in your day without having to wait for your average, slow, internet to load. That sounds good to me! 
I even had more time for dance breaks!





ANYWAY! Go check it out for yourself!!

GET READY FOR #THEGIGLIFE!

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Being Latino and Cox Communications. However, all opinions expressed are my own.



As you guys have probably seen from my recent vines- I'M ALL ABOUT #THEGIGLIFE! The gig life is a NEW era of internet from Cox. You can sync, stream, game AND upload on multiple devices without your internet slowing down with One GIG Internet from Cox. For all you number peeps: You can run all of your devices at the same time, download 100 tunes in 3 seconds, download an HD movie in less than 60 seconds and upload 1,000 photos in about a minute.


Same, Mulan. Saaaaaame...
In a household of four who all use the internet like we work for NASA during take off, I think my family would LOVE #TheGigLife.

Let me tell you what I'd do with #TheGigLife.
  • I'd upload videos to YouTube 10x faster.
  • Make more Vines of my dogs (LOL jk. of my chinz)
  • Get more fans on the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game (not joking.........)
  • Reblog more gifs of sloths (BTW, check out their Tumblr Page: coxcomm.tumblr.com)
  • Watch more videos of Miranda Sings on YouTube
  • Sing more Disney karaoke on YouTube
  • Re-watch the entire series of Dawson's Creek for the third time on Netflix. (Also not joking)
The possibilities are endless! In all seriousness, it would benefit my growing brand! Think of all the videos I could crank out? Think of all the VINES!
Wanna try it for yourself?
Thursday, August 7th, 5pm.
I'll be at the Cox GIG Life Experience at Chase Field Plaza at 4th and Jefferson!  Join our Twitter Party! The party will be on August 7th at 6pm MT.
Here is a link to the invitation where you can RSVP: http://bit.ly/1m671ry

On game days from July 31st through August 10th Cox will be there starting two and a half hours before the first pitch, where you'll get to try out the One GIG Internet from Cox and stream exclusive content on devices via Cox WiFi from Fox Sports Arizona and the Arizona Diamondback.

Experience fun games and giveaways including a $500 iTunes gift card and iPad.  Cox Customers can also purchase discounted Diamondback tickets by visiting www.dbacks.com/coxoffer and use code COXGIGIT.

I hope to see you tomorrow!

NEUTROGENA® #NOMASPOROS challenge!

This a compensated post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and NEUTROGENA®. Opinions and experiences with product are my OWN! <3


Hey guys! Took the Neutrogena #NoMasPoros(no more pores)challenge! I have to be honest, I'm one of those "low maintenance"(AKA LAZY) girls. seriously had to google search what pores were, because unlike Regina George, I never noticed them. 
Once I did, my reaction was like:


"Lemme just see what these 'pores' are all about."


"Wait. ARE THOSE HOLES ON MY FACE."


"Whatever. Who cares. I don't care."


"I CARE. OKAY?! THERE ARE HOLES ON MY FACEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I AM A SPONGE FOR DIRTTTTTT" 
(BTW-Just got done with a Dawson's Creek netflix binge. Sorry for the Dawson gifs.LOL)


So, yeah. I was pretty shocked. LUCKILY- there are AWESOME pore refining products. Like NEUTROGENA® PORE REFINING® products!






First, I used theNEUTROGENA® Pore Refining® Exfoliating Cleanser  and NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining® Daily Cleanser   to cleanse my face, and get rid of all that icky dead surface skin. 
The cool thing about these cleansers is that they even out your skin tone. 
Which is good if you have some discoloration from any acne scars!
(These cleansers won't dry out your face, btw!)   

The NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining® Toner is another way to get rid of dead skin and even out your skin. I just used a napkin to dab it on my face. 
The NEW! NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining® Moisturizer (in-stores in August) is the product that'll ATTACK your pores without clogging them! I applied it directly to my pore area.





Here are the results! (NO, I did NOT photoshop this) With anything, this will only work if you are consistent. I'm finally getting into the habit of practicing good skin care! And you should too!



Love, Maya
