Music at a Festival…Brings a Flock Together

“There’s nothing like a music festival. People are ready to have a good time. I don’t think anyone comes to a festival going, “I’m gonna be a complete bummer today.” ~ Gary Clark, Jr.

Going to make this short and sweet because I don’t want you all to miss out on all the festival fun. Every year music festivals seem to get bigger and bigger, a lot of it is because music is universal. Music continues and will continue to bring people together.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it got me to thinking why I love Valentine’s Day is so special to me, yes I love the fashion that comes with it, the flowers, chocolates, cards, food and much more, but Valentine’s Day is so much more to me than just these things. Valentine’s Day to me warms my heart because of the memories I have made with the family and friends that I love from my dad bringing home flowers to lobster and cupcakes to my mom getting my sister and I a heart sparkle ring that I forever will wear to watching movies and just being together for Valentine’s Day with my family and friends.

So that where my love for Valentine’s Day comes from, so in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, no matter how you spend it, here are a few fun themed ideas for how to spend it with the ones you love from fashion to food to themed decor ūüôā

Theme#1: Shake, Rattle and Roll !

Christmas Time is Here with Fabulous Flare and Tradition

IMG_4744-2IMG_4685

Christmas is here and I am smiling from ear to ear. This is my favorite time of year for many reasons. Yes, it is exciting to get gifts and give them, but this is not why I love Christmas. I will keep it short and sweet as to why because let me tell you this topic alone could be months worth of blog posts.

Christmas Time for me is my favorite because it means laughter with family and friends, sitting by the Christmas tree, eating a delicious honey baked ham, A Christmas Story movie will probably always make an apperance, Christmas mass where we all get to rock amazing holiday fashion(the fashions pictured are two of my favorite looks this year !) and yes rocking my new Christmas PJS.

Christmas time is all about tradition and that tradition is spending time with each other and yes we do open gifts, but what I get excited about the most is watching everyone else open their gifts and seeing them get giddy. With my family there seems to always be lots of laughter when we open our stockings and gifts, which creates such a warmth in me ūüôā

Christmas time tradition also includes picking up a tree, decorating it with family ornaments, shopping together, wrapping presents, baking yummy cookies, putting up lights with my dad and in recent years, I have been going to Pinterest for a couple new DIY decorations for each new Christmas time season.

My accessories for the holidays always include this heart sparkle ring from my mom. It is sentimental and an added bonus it sparkles. This amazing bracelet was gifted to me by Pura Vida, which is fun and festive. Also makes for an amazing gift ūüôā

I will end this year’s Christmas time post with why Christmas time for me is extra exciting. The reason is because it is my Amazing mother’s birthday the very same day we celebrate Christmas ! We celebrate it by going to a fun movie, opening bday gifts and fullfilling my mom’s sweet tooth with a birthday cake.

With Jingle Bells playing, trees shining with tinsel and cookies being eaten, what do you love most about the holiday season ?

Creative Juices are Flowing with Passion at Art Hearts Fashion

Fashion is an art whether on the runway, exploring out with friends or a combination of the two. It is a special moment when you realize that you can share in something you are passionate and real about it over dinner before the fashion shows, during and after. It is a realness that is sometimes hard to find especially in fashion, but being with great friends made me realize it’s all around in fashion and outside of it and even the fellow fashion show goers were amazing and truly enjoying the evening. There was a sense of an intimate show with friends even with a lot of people in attendance.

Luckily in the see of people mixed with the sense of intimacy, I was able to get a combination of the art of fashion and exploring out with friends at Off Vine Restaurant. It is always an added bonus when you get an evening filled with amazing fashion ¬†from Furne One, Mister Triple X and Michal Ngo at Art Hearts Fashion’s final night of shows put on by Parker Whitaker Productions. It’s amazing to see friends ¬†do what they love and enjoy the things we are all passionate about together, which involved the great creativity and talent that came out of Art Hearts Fashion. The creativity not only came out of the designers, but the fellow show goers as well. I believe seeing those fashions are partly why I go and they too inspire like the designers.

To be able to be there with friends like Jessica Pinedo of Just Jess Fashion (one of my favorite fashion blogs) who support me and who I support is truly a gift and why I had such a great night. I mean who doesn’t love an excuse to get all dolled up to have a great night out with friends when fashion shows are involved? I know I am in every time.

A well put together show from start to finish always gets my creative juices flowing and anytime a French bulldog comes out on the runway, my heart melts.

I look forward to the next season of shows and attending with my fellow fashion loving friends.

 

First Step Into Fall Fashions

Fall¬†is¬†here… well, somewhat¬†here¬†in¬†Southern¬†California,¬†but¬†for¬†most of the country the¬†tree¬†leaves¬†have¬†change¬†and¬†the¬†air¬†is¬†brisk¬†and one can‚Äôt¬†forget¬†about¬†the change in fashions.

Fall is one of my favorite  times of year because it brings about the colorful leaves, all
things pumpkin from lattes to the well known seed, carving for Halloween, amazing
times¬†with¬†family¬†and¬†friends, and great¬†fashion¬†go¬†to’s¬†like¬†a¬†great¬†pair¬†of¬†boots,¬†a¬†favorite
sweater and of course all the amazing pops of color we get to incorporate into our
everyday wardrobe. I do have a confession to make: I sometimes rock those colors
all year round when I am feeling in a fall mood. But, that is what fashion is all about, right? Wearing what you feel and owning it !

to¬†a¬†long¬†floral¬†skirt¬†&¬†striped¬†shirt¬†paired¬†with¬†my¬†favorite¬†jean¬†jacket to everything¬†in¬†between.¬†I¬†hope¬†these¬†inspire¬†you¬†to¬†rock¬†your¬†favorite¬†fall¬†fashions¬†with your¬†favorite¬†fall¬†latte¬†ūüôā
