Fiesta!!!!


A couple weeks ago my family decided to coordinate a very special surprise birthday party for my grandparents; they decided to go with a Fiesta theme. Who doesn’t love a fiesta right? The party was a hit! The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. There was fruit salad cups, nacho bar, elotes (prepared corn on the cob), and of course chips, salsa & a taco stand. Oh my just thinking about it is making me hungry. The ambience was just full of happiness. My grandparents were completely surprised and seeing their faces was priceless. I can’t really explain what my grandparents mean to me it because that would just take up a series of posts but what I will say is that they are the definition of what grandparents should be. They are two people that inspire me and show me what real genuine love is supposed to be. I could never ask for anything more.
Here are some pictures, enjoy.  By the way I loooove that Rachel Rachel Roy dress and the necklace is one of my favorites at this moment.

Hace unas semanas mi familia decidió coordinar una fiesta sorpresa de cumpleaños muy especial para mis abuelos,  ¿Quién no ama una fiesta? La fiesta fue un éxito! La comida era deliciosa y había un montón. Había tazas de ensalada de fruta, barra de Nacho, elotes preparados y, por supuesto, patatas fritas, salsa y un puesto de tacos. Oh, sólo de pensarlo me está dando hambre. El ambiente estaba lleno de felicidad. Mis abuelos eran completamente sorprendidos y al ver sus rostros no tiene precio. Realmente no puedo explicar lo que mis abuelos significan para mí, porque eso sería asumir una serie de mensajes, pero lo que voy a decir es que son la definición de lo que los abuelos deberían ser. Son dos personas que me inspiran y me muestran lo que el verdadero amor real se supone que es. Yo nunca podría pedir nada más

Aquí hay algunas fotos, disfruten. Por cierto amo mi vestido Rachel Rachel Roy  y el collar es uno de mis favoritos en este momento.

The End

When people say "All good things come to an end" They weren't joking. This is my last NYC post and I'm feeling a bit gloomy as I type. But then again I’m also feeling joy because I’m recalling all of the memories I shared with my sisters, I can still hear the traffic and the noise, the smell of the spicy food on every corner & of course seeing all the fashionistas everywhere I turn. NYC was unforgettable and I truly hope it’s only a short time before we meet again.

Cuando la gente dice "Todas las cosas buenas llegan a su fin" no estaban bromeando. Este es mi último mensaje sobre Nueva York y me siento un poco triste mientras escribo. Pero, también estoy sintiendo alegría porque estoy recordando todos los recuerdos que he compartido con mis hermanas, todavía puedo oír el tráfico y el ruido, el olor de la comida picante en cada esquina y, por supuesto, ver a todos los amantes de la moda donde quiera que gire. La Ciudad de Nueva York fue inolvidable y espero realmente que es sólo un corto tiempo antes de que nos volvamos a ver.




Yes, this was my breakfast. Cali girl can eat.


At the Macy's in Hearl Square they had a fashion show with free hair, make up and manicures. How
awsome is that? Oh did i mention the store is 10 stories???


I really love this fun playful outfit!


Stripes & Brights


These amazing flowers were taken at the Brazilian flower exhiition at Macy's. The colors were inspiring.


After a LONG day of shopping I couldn't ask for more.
This was a rasberry blonde beer brewed in house.

The End.

New York City Day 2





Finally It’s friday! I felt like this week was dragging on. I’m finally at home eating some pizza and catching up on stuff that I actually care about not like I have many options the weather has been unpredictable this last week. Guess what that means? That means I get sick. I have the WORST immune system ever it’s pretty ridiculous and embarrassing actually. Truth be told I’m actually sick right now as i type this and just thinking about it is irritating me so next topic of convo... NYC again. I never get sick of talking about that place here are some pictures from day 2, enjoy.

An egg-cellent outfit



Hey hey hey Happy Belated Easter everyone! I was surprised at how much candy I didn’t have this weekend, kind of shocking now that I think about it. I was mentally trying to prepare for the Paleo diet which I started this Monday. My goal is to do it for 21 days and see what happens. The wind was insane on Sunday afternoon I was freezing when my Bf was taking these pictures but you can probably tell, enjoy.
Hey hey hey Feliz Pascua tarde a todos! Me ha sorprendido cuánto dulce no comí este fin de semana. Mentalmente estaba tratando de preparar  para la dieta Paleo que empecé este lunes. Mí objetivó es hacerlo por 21 días y a ver qué pasa. El viento era una locura el domingo por la tarde me estaba congelando, cuando mi novio estaba tomando estas fotos, pero ustedes pueden ver probablemente,
