Year: 2015

Reminiscing on 2015

This morning I woke up to that pesky “Storage is Full: you can manage your storage in Settings,” message on my iPhone. Yay! Boo! Instantly I opened up my photo albums and gazed upon photos after of photos of my life in 2015. Goodness it was a year. Maybe the message served as an indicator […]

Peru Inspired

It may not seem like it, but today was freezing. My fingers literally were burning red from the cold. I am thankful, however, because we didn’t see any blizzard-like activity in the area. Because it’s been so cold and yucky out; I couldn’t help but think of my time in Peru. I spent the majority […]

Gifted (Christmas Haul Video)

Hello. So this is pretty embarrassing, but I just uploaded my first video haul. I absolutely hate video-taping myself mainly because I hate the way I speak and sound. However, I decided to start my New Year’s Resolution early, push my fears aside, and try something way outside my comfort zone. I received a bunch […]

Repeat green

Yesterday I talked about how much fun I had shopping for everyone’s gift, including me. Apart from yesterday’s sweater, I also picked up this green one. It truly is sweater weather around here, well for now, because next week we are expected to receive a bunch of snow, and ice, and wind. Lovely. Until then […]

Sweater weather

So far (luckily) we have had pretty nice weather. I mean it isn’t nice or toasty by any means, but I’ve gone jacket-less. Let me knock on wood. My Sunday and Monday were spent at the mall, Christmas shopping for everyone, even me. I picked up a lot of nice items that I can’t wait […]

With four days

Every soulful and traditional Mexican knows what having tamales around, during this time of year, really means. This year, it meant a lot more to us. It meant getting Christmas going. Literally. With only four days until Christmas Day, just yesterday we bought the Christmas tree. Today we put it up and decorated it. And […]

Tis the season

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is dressing up, of course. As a family we usually dress in red and attend Christmas Eve mass. But this dress from Stitch Fix has become a heavy contender. Two major things are happening, first the black (which is my favorite color outfit chose) and second […]

December Beauty Box

This is the third beauty box from the lovely people at BIRCHBOX. Because I have reported in the past that I’m by no means an expert in anything beauty, I can’t say whether these items are must haves. However, what I attest to is that this month’s box doesn’t disappoint. All of these products are both […]

Sitting on a bench

The air has been cold, but for me that’s a good thing because it allows my brain to function as the wind flows through my nose. There’s a lot that’s going on in my life at the moment. It seems like there isn’t enough hours in a day to fully get my endless tasks complete. […]

Gray tones

Yes it snowed and yes it’s been cold, but no I’m not complaining. Continuing with my Stitch Fix box items, today I wore this top separately with my closet items. Now, this top isn’t something I would normally wear, but there is a lot of wonderful things going on. For example the sleeves and the […]
