My sister-in-law sent this mass e-mail to all the ladies she loves in her life. It's mushy but true...especially the first half!

One Flaw In Women 

Women have strengths that amaze men... 

They bear hardships and they carry burdens, 

but they hold happiness, love and joy. 

They smile when they want to scream. 

They sing when they want to cry. 

They cry when they are happy 

and laugh when they are nervous. 

They fight for what they believe in. 

They stand up to injustice. 

They don't take "no" for an answer 

when they believe there is a better solution. 

They go without so their family can have. 

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. 

They love unconditionally. 

They cry when their children excel 

and cheer when their friends get awards. 

They are happy when they hear about 

a birth or a wedding. 

Their hearts break when a friend dies. 

They grieve at the loss of a family member, 

yet they are strong when they 

think there is no strength left. 

They know that a hug and a kiss 

can heal a broken heart. 

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. 

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you 

to show how much they care about you. 

The heart of a woman is what 

makes the world keep turning. 

They bring joy, hope and love. 

They have compassion and ideas. 

They give moral support to their 

family and friends. 

Women have vital things to say 

and everything to give. 



After, I was told to forward to anyone I love and of course something awesome was planned in my near future. Instead I thought I would post it to remind the ladies of the blog world, shit if this is our only flaw...that's any easy one to fix. KNOW YOUR WORTH! and we'll be the perfect gender! <3

The Sartorialist

So Thursday night was an extraordinary night. A few of us went to The Beverly Center to Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist's book signing. We stood in line while wine and hors d'oeuvres were being passed on trays, such as coconut covered marshmellow with chocolate inside, mini chocolate cupcakes, and cotten candy which I saw once and it never returned. 

I had such a great time, most of it was spent standing in line, but once we got to meet Scott I found out what a delightful man he is. He is so kind and looks you in the eye, which is refreshing. He shook my hand and wanted to know what I did for a living. As he was about to write my name in the book, he stopped...turned, and TOTALLY checked out my outfit!!!! He threw me a couple compliments and I blushed for the next half hour. So great..

Another DIY project I'm working on :)


Thanks to Neda for sharing her pics! <3

Fashion doesn't care if you're sick..

::quick outfit post::

So I finally made it out of bed and decided that I needed to make it out of my sweats and oversized t-shirt. Well, the sweats went but I'm still coughing up whatever is left of my lungs so I wanted to be comfy. I stuck with an oversized Sex Pistols T, leggings and these fab Chinese Laundry Sudoku flats. Topped it off with a messy bun out of laziness and some hot purple lipstick to make it girly-ish.

Hope everyone had a fun and un-sick weekend <3

Jason mrAMAZING!!

For my birthday, one of my best friends, we'll call him....Emerson! gave me tickets to go see Jason Mraz at the Hollywood Bowl. Reading the card I almost fainted with glee but then realized he wasn't gonna be able to come with me. It was a sad day, and we tried to make it happen, but sadly it didn't work out. :(

I ended up taking my other bestie Arista and we had such an awesome time. 

Jason rocks my socks! and it was pretty cool to see that a simple acoustic guitarist can sell out the hollywood bowl and rock the house. He was simply amazing and that boy's got some pipes on him. so THANKS Emerson!!! :) :) :) :)

prepping in the car

G-love and Special Sauce <3

At the end, they left the main stage and there was this little stage in the middle. Jason, this other guy that opened up for him, and a bongo player played  a few songs. One by one they left until it was just Jason and his guitar. Acoustic and intimate, just how I like it <3

a close up on mine and Arista's BFF necklace :)

Puddle boarding, Haiku style

Ok so this is my Godson/the reason I'm alive/the love of my life/the most amazing little human ever!

As posted down below, he's 7 and lives on Maui. The little one is pink is his sister Kuleana and she is the cutest little tomboy/girly girl there is. This is what them country kids do when the rain comes in....PUDDLE BOARDING!!! 

Now the video is 9:00 minutes long and even though I can watch it over and over nonstop, I don't expect you to. But just FF to 3:26 to see the kid in action. And if you're still interested, FF to 5:17 to see his beautiful face. 

The comedy definitely comes at 6:20 and 8:24 when my aunt and uncle (Kawika's grandma and grandpa) get in on the action..

oh family.. 


Sunday, October 11, 2009 don't know what to say...well, let's see...I'd like to thank....MY FANS!!

Because without you, there'd be no me...

(pause for effect)

(make crazy/distorted/about to cry face)

::wait for it::

::wait for it::

tear.. (just one)

Look mom, look what I got!!
A Kreativ Blogger Award!! SWEET!
The rules are as follows...
1) Thank the blogger that gave you award. 
Share 10 things that your blog readers may not know about you.
3) Present this award to 7 bloggers you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those whose blog has encouraged you.

Well Jess, I'm sure you know how I feel about you because I've expressed it more than once. But what the hay...You ROCK!! and thanks again for this misspelled award! ;)

Ok 10 things the blog world may not know about moi

1) I'm a Baha'i!! Yep, and it's awesome. I declared about 3 years ago, but I've known about the faith my whole life through my cousin. And if you don't know what the Baha'i Faith is, my apologies. Let me introduce you. Baha'i Faith, readers. Readers, Baha'i Faith. Basically, to quote the website provided..

The Bahá'í Faith is the youngest of the world's independent religions. Its founder, Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá'ís as the most recent in the line of Messengers of God that stretches back beyond recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad.

The central theme of Bahá'u'lláh's message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society. God, Bahá'u'lláh said, has set in motion historical forces that are breaking down traditional barriers of race, class, creed, and nation and that will, in time, give birth to a universal civilization. The principal challenge facing the peoples of the earth is to accept the fact of their oneness and to assist the processes of unification.

and to sum THAT up...we believe in unity in mankind. <---to sum THAT up, this religion rocks :)

2) I have Philippino neighbors that I've known since I was about 9 and I love them like crazy. And every Saturday and Sunday morning they blast the local Oldies radio station starting at around 7 or 8am. Normally, you know, being 23 and all I should be pissed, but waking up to the sounds of the past with no plans in mind always starts off my day with a smile.

3) A few years ago for my little cousin's birthday, all the grown up girl cousins dressed up like the Disney princesses. Since we're Mexican and I have huge family, this was possible. I was nominated to be Ariel (since I look so much like her and all). So this was fun and great, but since then, since a few years ago, my family has been giving me Ariel EVERYTHING. I have accumulated posters, pictures, ALL the school supplies a Disney freak could ask for, dolls, Barbies, purses, etc. It's insane and I'm still not sure why they keep it up..

4) I cliff jump.

So here's a couple pics. They are both on Maui. The first one is actually the highest I have ever jumped off of, it was about 65-70 ft and it was SO much fun!!! The second is at 7 pools in Hana and it's about 60 feet. In the middle of the picture that's me in the air (not standing on the rock) and above that, where the people are, is where I jumped from. But I basically jump off of anything I can find if it's into water. Here's a link to a video of me jumping off some guy's roof into his pool. Oh and the guy in the backround saying "GO! Just do it!" Is my brother...

5) I have a Godson and he's the most gorgeous/special/smart/funny/amazing thing in my life. His name is Kawika, he's 7, and he lives in Hawaii..

6) I have a new kitty and his name is King Louie. Let me splain. It started off with Baghira who is my all black know, the jungle book. Then we got a gray cat and named him Baloo. Sadly Baloo is no longer with us :( Then my brother got a cat and named him Moglie, and he actually turned out to be a she. So this new kitty is a redhead, hence King Louie. (But I call him Fire Crotch!)

7) I have 2 Tattoos. 

This one is behind my neck and it's a 9 pointed star, a symbol for the Baha'i Faith. The other I don't have a pic for but it's the letter N and it's behind my ear. It stands for Nick, my dad <3

8) I went to the Jason Mraz concert last night, thanks to Emerson, and it was INCREDIBLE!! I flippin love him. Pics to come

9) I've broken both my arms, a leg, and cracked my head open (all at different times)

10) I'm really hungry

Present to 7 Bloggers - (copying Jess and also not telling) ;0)

Happy Sunday Folks <3>

"When accessorizing always take off the last thing you put on"

"Where should one use perfume?" a young woman asked. "Wherever one wants to be kissed," I said.

"Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress."

"Fashion passes, style remains."

The other day, my cousin and I went to see the movie "Coco before Chanel" thanks to Ashley from Ghetto Blaster for letting me known of its existence. It's the story of Gabrielle aka Coco Chanel's life and how she started designing. When women wore corsets, she wore pant suits. When other women adorned their hair with too many accessories, she wore straw hats. Finally her brilliance was recognized and it was the start of a new fashion era that she will forever be remembered by. It was incredible and I was happily surprised that it was in French....le sigh

Oh and I wore my new wedge ankle booties...yum

After seeing the movie, I became really inspired to do some DIY stuff. I'm on a shoe CRAZE right now...well, scratch that, I'm on a shopping craze but shoes just melt me. So I grabbed some old, suede Steve Madden's that I never wear anymore cuz I've stepped in one too many puddles and tried something out...



What do ya think? Not bad right? Yeah, I don't think these are done yet since they are my sample pair and I have a couple things I wanna try out on them. But I think it's pretty good for my first time, and if it's not then it's just gonna have to be, cuz I'm broke now and if I want new things I'm gonna have to make it out of old things. :)

Ok, so you know how I just said I'm broke...

and you know how I just said I have a shopping problem...

Ok so a new H & M was opening yesterday about 40 minutes from my house. The first 200 people get gift cards...well, that's pretty much my viagra right there. So getting up at 4:30 was noooooo problem to someone like me with this kind of disease (don't judge me).

So my cuz Vanessa and I drove to Torrance to stand in line for 6 hours to receive our gift cards and it was totally worth it.  I was exhau...wait exhausted doesn't even cover how tired I was. I was nauseous I was so tired. I was begging for someone to stab my eyes out with a dull pencil, they were burning so bad. But I got really cute clothes....ugh, I need help.

at 6:00am...only 6 more hours to go...

Oh and I know everyone has already posted/drooled over these, but I couldn't resist
