So I’m spoiled by my dad. Hence this amazing collaboration came to be. Can you take a guess where my inspiration cane from? Total 90s, clueless, and anime all the way. I just wanted to have a fun and beautiful photoshoot with my dad. I think we were successful but you be the judge ! All photo credit to my dad ! Not only did we take some pictures we enjoyed the food and eveything the youth fair has to offer. I will never complain spending some time and throwing together something with my dad, what can I say I’m a daddy’s girl. I had a blast in general but I definitely enjoyed the food! What is your favorite fair food?

This January I travel from Miami to Tampa, it was my first time ever visiting this beautiful city. It was a bittersweet trip. I was happy to be able to spend time with my family and get closer to my cousins. I also went to Busch Gardens for the first time!
So not going to lie, I had a blast at Busch Gardens. The roller coasters were a blast. My favorite was by far Montu. Cheetah was pretty bad ass too. We got to drink AND ride roller coasters ? Yes please ! I didn’t ride Sheikra because I hate drops…bummer I know. The park itself is vibrant, colorful filled with plants and wild life. We were lucky enough to go on a weekend with amazing weather, no rain and it was cold. As an animal lover I was skeptical about going to a place where they keep animals, but hey I have seen worse. I got to feed kangaroos and hey peep that hippo butt. It was fun running around the park with my family, we even took grandma. It’s safe to say we all had a good time drinking, riding, and being tourists in our state. A Floridan’s specialty, am I right?

Now the reason I was in Tampa wasn’t the happiest. That’s why I said it was a bittersweet trip. In my last post I stated I don’t like to share my personal life but here I go again. I was up in Tampa for a celebration of life for my cousin who passed of this disease. I was lucky to have the opportunity to celebrate his life. I was also lucky enough to get closer to family. In the past year I have lost two people to ALS. Below I am going to include the link to donate to the ALS association. Feel free to donate as little or as much as you can, any little bit helps.
Family first, always !
Where do I begin? Ho Ho Ho ! In Miami there are too many celebrations to count! I am not a grinch so I do celebrate them all and I am lucky enough to be surounded by family and friends that love me very much!
The first celebration took place with my best friend and her family. This was a Cuban celebration a few days before Christmas known as the San Lazzaro Party. We danced, we drank, we smoked cigars, we truly celebrated. This is my second holiday season with my best friend by my side and that is something to celebrate!

Next up we have Noche Buena, another cuban tradition, also known as Christmas Eve. My family tends to go out the Cuban way. The entire family gets together and roats a pig. We make hot chocolate for the kids, and have adult beverages for the big kids. I enjoy getting together with my family, we are one big family my mom has about 20 cousins. It is nice to come together for the holidays and catch up.

Last but deffinetly not least Christmas Day! I guess I was a good girl this year because Santa brought me everything I asked for! I spent the day relaxing at home with family. Some of the things I got were a bath caddy, a bath robe, a bunch of clothes, my dad got a nes (I will be using it). And yes those are BFF mood bracelets, be very jealous. The biggest gift is my animals that clearly remind me how much of a gift they are to me. This holiday season was both tough but a blessing. I am thankful for not only the material things but the family and friends I have in my life to celebrate the season with.

This October had something special a Friday the 13th. Instead of doing something spooky like I naturally would my mother decided to celebrate her birthday. She did so by going on a cruise. It was my parents, my brother, my grandmother, and her sister. We drank, we gambled, we tanned, and we spent quality family time together. Needless to say my mother enjoyed her birthday celebration.
We traveled on Norwegian Cruise Line. NCL is a freestyle cruising, that means no schedules. We were lucky enough to also have an unlimitted drink pass. I have travelled NCL before and highly recommend it! We stopped at Atlantis and at their private island. Both were beautiful. Gambling and a beautiful beach? Yes please! The weather was perfect it was hot out but the water was nice and cool. The water was crystal clear blue. I could not have asked for a better family trip. The best part was all of us enjoyed ourselves young and old. My mom was just as happy, she cannot wait til next year!
Now while Miami is no Napa Valley we do have a hidden gem where you can get away for a little taste of wine country here in our own backyard. Schnebly Redland’s Winery and Brewery has wine, beer, and food. What more can you ask for? Oh yeah amazing views! So not only is it beautiful, there is plenty to do so you won’t be bored, hungry, or sober. Let me start by stating I am no wine expert.
I went with some of my family. We enjoyed wine tasting and dinner. Everything was amazing. If you aren’t a fan of fruity wines this might not be for you. Lucky for me I am. They have everything from Lychee Dolce (lychee wine) to Avovino (avocado wine). You read that right avocado wine, and it’s actually really good. They have Florida inspired wines like Carambola (star fruit wine), Mango, Guava, Coconut, and Passion Fruit wines. Each has a unique flavor and it was hard to choose a favorite. Passion fruit was my favorite, a fruity red wine. They also have a brewery and a restaurant. I cannot wait to go back!

So my mom likes to make a one day celebration into an event. So we celebrated mothers day not once but twice. She was more than happy to say the least. This year was special because I got to spend it with all the strong women in my life. With all the bullshit going on in the world we can forget how strong we are but I have these bad ass women to remind me. I am thankful for all of them and would not be who I am today with out them!
I hope you all enjoyed your mother’s day as well ! Remember who run the world? GIRLS!

For us Miamians winter in Miami is one maybe two days long, AKA a cold front. This year we didn’t get much cold weather. No season changes, no sweaters were really brought out. Depending where you live you can be grateful or jealous! I know some parts of the US were hit pretty hard with snow!
This weekend it was the perfect weather to enjoy a nice dinner with my parents. As you can tell I get my style and grace from them! It was also a perfect excuse to bring out my over the knee boots. Hey, the cold never bothered me anyways. *Frozen refference*

This past Thanksgiving my family and I traveled to Walt Disney World to celebrate. When packing we all think of the obvious our toiletries, and what to wear of course. Fashion is so important to us, from our head to our toes. Before I realized it I had so much shit on my bed I knew I wasn’t taking half of it with me, time to rethink and pack correctly I mean I’m only going for a weekend right? How much clothes do I really need? Well when it comes to clothes I don’t follow the rules I follow my heart. I do tend to dress the part, I mean in -10 degree weather I’m not going to wear a bikini. Hey if you’re brave enough go for it, but not this Miami girl.
When it comes to fashion I don’t think anyone should tell you how to dress. Rules are meant to be broken right? Everyone should feel awesome wearing the clothes they are in! I will post my outfits and the details for everyone to follow. If you like it awesome, if not cool too. This is my fashion adventure one day at a time.
When it comes to Disney I do act like a child. It really is the happiest place on Earth. Although I have been to Disney over 546851 times since I was a child each time is magical. My family does spoil me and treat me like a princess too. Just look at my face in the pictures. This trip was extra special because i got to meet some of my favorite characters Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb. They were perfect. As you can tell I dressed the part and followed my heart.

When it comes to pets the most important thing is ADOPT DON’T SHOP! Christmas is a time where families are often given puppies or kittens as gifts. This is all fine and dandy until they grow up, most families don’t prepare for the responsibility and unfortunately they end up at the local shelter. That is where you come in, adopt don’t shop!
I have so many fur babies and I love them all so much. Most of them have been adopted from the Miami Dade Animal Shelter or Out Reach centers. At my home I have 2 dogs and a cat. At my boyfriends home he has 2 dogs. Like I said lot’s of fur babies! They are so happy to be adopted and feel right at home !
Let me introduce you to my crew ! Starting with the newest additon Sherrwood.
Meet Sherwood. He is a Goldendoodle, currently staying with my boyfriends family. He is a beautiful puppy, who loves to play. As seen above he loves tenis balls. He is so smart and cuddly. Just look at those curls! You can say it was love at first tail wag.
Next up is my forever puppy.
Meet Nana. This beautiful cockerspaniel keeps boyfriends abuela(grandmother) company at home. We call her a forever puppy because she stayed the same size she never grew up! We named her after the dog in Peter Pan, Nana. I know dogs are not supposed to eat popsicles but who could say no to this cutie?
Next up is Reeses, a true rescue story.
Reeses was rescues from Miamia Dade Animal Services right before Christmas in 2010 by myself as a Christmas gift for my brother as he always wanted a German Sheppard. As I brought her home we noticed she was sick we took her to 3 different vets that told us she was terminal and we had to put her down. I refused to listen and put down a dog on Christmas so I went back to the Shelter and there they were able to help bring her back to health. Here we are years later and she’s happy healthy and riding in the back of my brothers truck. She sleeps in my brothers room and will not leave his side
Then we got the oldest of the bunch, Coco.
Yeah that’s the only picture I can get of her. She’s old but still fiesty. A jack russell that we have had for about 14 years now. She has been the most fun and the most unpredictable dog. She can surf in our pool. She can also tear apart lizzard in half a minute if you let her. In her prime age she would swim and chase you down the pool. Even in her old age she chills out with my cat Bruce and Reeses.
Last but not least Master Bruce Wayne.
The Lion in my bedroom. Master Bruce Wayne, named after of course Batman. He lives with me in my bedroom. He is my first cat, it’s a learning experience, and I love him. He has helped me so much with my anxiety I cannot beging to explain it. He is weird like me I guess. Always remember cats do not abide by the laws of nature( if you catch that reference you are totally awesome).
All my animals are amazing. I have been lucky to be able to adopt these wonderful animals. I encourage you to do the same. It will not only save the life of an animalin need it will give so much more to your life. I can’t imagine my life with out these guys in it. They make day to day life happier one tail wag or purrrr at a time.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! I hope every one had amazing holiday weekend because I know I did! I was lucky enough to spend Christmas Eve or Noche Buena as we call it in Miami with my extended family and Christmas with my close family. Nothing says holidays like family, anxiety, lots of food and drinking. My mom comes from a big family so we all get together for the holidays. Even though holidays can be stressful at times family is what holds us together, no matter how crazy they can be. Trust me no one is crazier than my family.
Now on Christmas we had a smaller get together at my house with my close family. What is Christmas with out some gifts and cookies? We had my cousin come over and so did my grandmother. Don’t tell anyone but she’s my favorite. I don’t know what I would do with out her. She is the best gift, I’m telling you holidays are all about family. Me and my cousin drive her crazy. My cousin is my mini-me, even though he’s almost my height. He couldn’t be more like me if I gave birth to him. You can’t forget my little brother AKA my best friend. He holds it down for me. BTW I say little brother he’s 6’2 and I’m 5’0 and I’m the older one. Can guess who got the good genetics here? My favorite material gift was a Kate spade purse and a Pandora ring.

The 26th or day after Christmas my mom had a pajama party at the house for all the family at the house. This was quite interesting. There was karaoke and a lot of drinking. I did not sing to say the least. Again lots of family and more drinking. MORE DRINKING. I stole a box of chocolates filled with liquor, I was pretty excited. I was also excited to see cousins of mine that I had not seen in years. I was not so happy to hear them sing but that’s another story. I thought with all this family in town and all these parties my anxiety would be through the roof, but it was quite the opposite. I don’t know if it was keeping my mind busy or if they were keeping me happy but I was actually happy. At the end of the day blood is thicker than water. No matter how crazier they may seem family is the greatest gift of all.
