mercedes sanchez avon For the past two years I've gone to Miami for Hispanicize, an annual event/conference on social media. On Thursday, I'm returning as a speaker on the fashion panel. 

This year I partnered with Avon who's sponsoring  my flight and stay.

I'm so excited to head back to the 3-0-5 and reunite with other leading bloggers and social media experts, and of course, spend some time in sunny Florida!

It has a combination floral scent of jasmine and magnolia- with a sensual essence of amberwoods. I'll let you know if I get any compliments for it!
