HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I had a wonderful, chill New Year’s Eve experience this year. It was the first time I spent NYE in my own house in years! (Literally)

Even though I spent it at home with a small group of people, that didn’t stop me (or any of us) from taking advantage of the holiday to glam it up!

Dem shoes though! lol

We watched the ball drop (I refuse to head to the city to do that!) and ate some amazing churrasco. (If you don’t know what it is, TRY IT.)

On New Year’s Day, I sat down to watch the newly purchased visual album by none other than Queen King Bey which was fantastic! I seriously cannot say anything bad about this project. She slayed every song and every video and I’m not even a crazed fan although I do love her. She ended 2013 with the ultimate bang and raised the bar for all artists right now!

SO beautiful!

This pretty much sums up the night, how was your NYE experience?

Perfectly Flawed Vitiligo Project

Hey gang!

I’ve been up since 8am today and if I’m up at that ungodly hour on a Saturday there had better be a damn good reason.

Well, today, there was such a reason. Today, I participated in a video shoot for a project called “Perfectly Flawed Project” that focuses on raising awareness about the skin condition vitiligo and also helping others embrace their uniqueness.

Image

I am so proud to be a part of this movement created by Telisha Gibson and I honestly hope I can get involved with more projects like these. The shoot was relaxed and comfortable. I walked in and was pleasantly surprised to see and meet two girls who I follow on instagram and also have vitiligo.

(then I asked for a photo like a normal person would)

It was a great experience to hear each person share their own stories on vitiligo from when they first noticed loss of pigmentation to how they coped and everything in between. Each person was strong and there was even a little 6yr old girl who was interviewed. She was such a cutie pie and also very brave to talk about how she felt when people teased her at school. Yet, when asked if she knew she was beautiful, she proudly responded with a “Yes”. :’)

Headed out to supa fresh clothing brand Extra Butter for a few…

Home Sweet Home

I love having a “pata caliente” as I used to hear growing up. It literally translates to “hot foot/leg” but is meant to say that the person being referred to as having that likes to go out a lot (the … Continue reading
