Hiatus 2017

It's vacation with the familia time and that means I'll be MIA
from the blog but you can still find me on my social networks!

I'll be heading out to Panama City Beach, FL with my mom and
two sisters this weekend and I'll be back April 25th.

Yeah, I started the hiatus a week early because I'm lazy and won't be updating the blog.

Anyways, have a great two weeks and I'll see ya when I come back!

Here are a few links that caught my attention this week!


The idea of a cube-like-tent for our camping adventures sounds mucho fun!

Milk & Cookies are my shizzle!
Putting Tiny's Milk and cookies shop on my must visit list!

Bike backpack with The Simpsons theme? Yes, please!

This granddaughters of witches you couldn't burn shirt puts a big smile on my face!

Getting frustrated with the lack of Latino-owned businesses online,
two ladies found Shop Latinx. It's an online magazine,
business database, and resource page. 

Unique DIY Lens Filters from Lomography

Game of Thrones parody toilet decal that made me laugh.
Yes, I'm seriously considering getting two!

This work area makes me want to write on the walls of my own work area.

Did you hear about the UBERBae? She found out her boyfriend
was cheating when she dropped off the side chick at his apartment. 

And finally, have you seen the new Justice League
movie trailer? Watch it below!

PL + 2017 + WK 1

Today I'm taking it back to 2014 and starting Project Life, again! I've tried this form of memory keeping for three years and have yet to complete an entire year. Starting it again this year doesn't necessarily mean I'll be finishing this year. It means that I'm tired of seeing all my scrapbooking goodies not being used. Not to mention the amount of cash I've spent on cards, stamps, paper, stickers, etc. So yeah, crossing my fingers once again.

This year I'm going back to the 12x12 format because the 9x12 format didn't do it for me. I blame switching sizes to not following through last year 🤷🏻‍♀️ I did so much research on the size and I was so excitamated when I finally jumped on a sale to buy the new binder and clear sheets. But no. It was a major fail on my part. I couldn't adapt to the smaller version with all the shit I wanted to add each week. What I am keeping is the Monday to Sunday weeks so that I can keep my weekends in one spread instead of splitting them up every week. I plan on cutting the ton of 12x12 pages I have for my backgrounds and keeping the journaling short. 

FYI: These pictures are shit and I apologize. My camera's flash died (think I mentioned it before) so I've been improvising "light" in different ways.

Wish me luck 😁

Weekend Snapshots | 12

Today's #WeekendSnapshots is brought to you by my shade game via the HTX Boss Babes Spring Pop-Up Market! I tried three pairs of shades on by Vida Antigua and then realized they were the same except a different color, haha! That meant I had to buy a pair, right? My sister liked a few so she hooked me up with a navy pair!

I'm really big on shopping local and of course handmade so visiting this pop-up market with Mama Carrizo and my sister was a big deal to me. I wanted them to see the goodies the ladies in our city create and how much fun it is to hang out at these markets. Truth is, my mama might be joining some of these pop-up shops soon. More on that later!
