Sights Seen

As I end finals for spring term, I begin to realize how much I miss being on vacation in New Orleans. For my 21st birthday I spent time in NOLA, spending time in museums and cafes with amazing food.

Going to a new place reminded me of how beautiful different parts of the country are. There was so many different places that were full of amazing food, art and culture. I had never seen so many bright buldings, I loved how varied the scenery was.

I always travel to the same places with my family: California and Mexico. This was the first time I had ever flown on an airplane, and I love the feeling of it. Being on an airplane gave me time to relax, and just think about all the fun I would be having in a new place.

We had a beautiful air bnb that we rented, and we spent time cooking at night to try and save money once we realized all that we had spent at restaurants. Being away from home was exciting, everything was new and so interesting.

One of the pictures below is of beignets, which are infamous in New Orleans. We went to Café Du Monde on several occasions, including the day my twin and I turned 21.

Valentines

Hey beautiful people! Today is Valentine’s Day, and I spent it reflecting. I thought about the friends I have and how much I love the friendships we share. I tend to try and make my friends feel as special as I can, and I hope I did that today. Texting my friends to make sure they are feeling loved, regardless of their romantic relationships. This was a perfect example of me spending time with the most important people I know.

This is Brenda, I’ve known her since sophomore year of high school. She has been by my side throughout all the emotional breakdowns I’ve had because of school, life and relationships. She’s someone I can be completely myself with and I know she will never judge me, too much. She is an example of an amazing friend, and I can’t wait to see what amazing things she does in California. Thank you Brenda for being here for me, I love you.

It’s a start

Happy weekend! It’s finally Saturday. This week has been different, at least academically speaking.

I took my first exam in the term on Monday and saw a large amount of improvement from my first to last attempt. That just shows that I have to work as hard as I can to pass this math class and get closer to my goal. This being my third year in college, I still find myself lacking the focus I need to get through courses. I know it’s not easy, so I have to dedicate time to making sure I get the results I want.

Balancing school, work and a social life can be hard, but I want to also take time to up my blogging. To give you all the content you deserve. Thank you all for continuously supporting me! It means so much!

Christmas 2017

Hello everyone! I hope you’re Christmas celebrations where filled with love and joy. Mine were full of my family, spending time with them and enjoying all the love I have in my life. I am so thankful to have them, to have such amazing support in all my endeavors, no matter what they are.

I’m excited for 2018, to focus on my love of fashion and see where my hard work can take me. Here’s to many goals in the future!

Birthday

I turned 21 while on a trip to New Orleans. I wanted to go to a museum, and that’s exactly what we did. I wore my newest shirt and felt really beautiful that day. We did a lot, including finding out that Kendrick Lamar was in town. Sadly, I did not meet him. Overall, my birthday was a success. I saw art, something I’ve started to really like and find interesting. Especially since the museum was divided by time periods.

Casual

When I have a 10 am class, sometimes I feel like going to class in casual clothing. Something warm that I can be comfortable in all day. This was no exception. What was different is I tried to still be stylish, streetwear is one of my favorite types of outfits. I paired my thin black sweatpants with adidas, a forever21 top and Tommy Hilfiger hat. I finally bought this hat after seeing it at a mall last year, I love the minimal look of it. I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Classic 

I love simple outfits. Outfits that make sense, that are both comfortable yet make me feel beautiful. This outfit makes me feel more girly than usual, and I was happy to wear my favorite color, bright red. 

I bought this oversized adidas tee and skirt when I was shopping with my girls. I’ve gotten more and more into the adidas brand, going to the adidas store and buying workout clothes as well. 

This to me is so classic, especially the black button up skirt, also a must have (in my opinion) that I’m happy to add to my closet ❤️ 

My twin and I (yeah I have one) spent my day off taking pictures in the downtown area of our hometown, and we kept finding places we’d never seen before. Funny how even thought I’ve been living in a place for my whole life I still feel like a tourist from time to time. 

Here is one of my classic outfits that I can’t wait to wear differently (this shirt can be a tshirt dress and this skirt can go with so many different tops) throughout the rest than of the summer. 
What outfits are you excited to wear? Let me know 😊

Family day 

I had a day off from work so I went with my mom to run errands. Those usually consist of going to the Mexican store to buy meat and vegetables. As we were leaving we had to stop by the store a few doors down to buy bread. We noticed that they had fruit cups, consisting of chamoy, which is a sauce put on fruits such as mango. 

As we walked to the car, my younger brother took endless picture of us, and I liked how they came out. They were a representation of my relationship with my mom, always laughing and joking around. I was also really excited to finally wear this shirt I bought at pacsun, (thank you buy one get one free ☺️) since it’s see through I wore a bralette from target. This has been one of my favorite outfits, because I feel more and more comfortable with my body. I’ve gained a bit of weight in my stomach, and that’s fine. It’s weird not having a flat stomach, but all I wanna focus on is being happy and healthy.
