Sick Days…

hello amigos..

It’s no secret that I have been sick since Friday, the first thing my husband asked me was if I had gotten it from our 6yr old niece.. I thought about it and it wasn’t her, I say this because she is always sick. Last weekend as some of you may or may not know I had a family emergency where I had to leave to Naples because my nephew was rushed to the ER. Thankfully, he was rushed in time and is doing better, I honestly do not know exactly with what the doctor diagnosed him with but I believe it has something to do with his heart since he has to go see a cardiologist now. But, anyway, this post isn’t about him, I would appreciate the prayers though.

As I previously said I got really sick on Friday morning and all day yesterday was a struggle to eat or drink. I became sick the entire weekend and thought I was getting better when Monday morning rolled around, but by Monday afternoon I felt my sinuses clog up, yesterday I had a sinus headache all day long with a side effect of a runny nose too. It really is a drag to feel like this, I’m hoping to God that I get better before the weekend arrives. I really do not like taking anything when it comes to my body unless it’s absolutely necessary. I like letting my body heal on it’s own, I believe that if God created my body he also created it to heal with time on it’s own without any medical intervention. Now, don’t get me wrong if there is something seriously wrong where I need medication I will take it.

So, I apologize ahead of time that there isn’t a fun post for today but I am still sick with a sinus infection/headache which isn’t a good combo for this week. I didn’t want to not post anything at all because I want you all to know what is happening with lil old me.

Thank you all for understanding



Happiness | In 100 Words



Happiness means contentment, satisfaction, joy, delight, glee and so much more. Happiness is a state of mind. It is a place where you are able to get to on your own, no one can do it for you, it must be willingly achieved on a personal level. My happiness comes from the Lord. My spirit is joyful because I have people in my life that love me unconditionally. My happiness doesn’t come from the things of this world, there is nothing in this world that can give me the satisfaction of being content.

What makes you happy? :)



Top 10 Bloggers | I’m Obsessed

hello amigos!

You can already tell this is going to be one of those posts we all love, well, I love reading posts about people’s favorite things, people and places. Today, I’m going to share with you 10 Top Bloggers I have been obsessing over. I love finding new blogs with awesome content that keep me motivated and inspired. In this community it can be very easy to get distracted or feel down when we see other successful bloggers, but don’t allow that to bring you down, use that feeling and turn it into a mood of getting it done! Let it motivate you to be the BEST version of YOU!

1. A Beautiful Mess 

This could possibly be my TOP favorite blog of all time, so it’s no coincidence that it is numero 1. I think it’s because Elsie & Emma make it look so easy. Although I know better, blogging requires commitment and dedication, something these two sisters manage very well. My favorite part of their blog has to be all the home decor and renovations that they do, if you love DIY’s, then you will fall in love with this purrrfection of a blog. If you’re a new reader to A Beautiful Mess, you must start here. If you want to meet all the faces behind this awesome blog/company, read here. And one of the best parts about this blog is the SHOP! Can, we just take a moment to thank the unicorns and heavens for this shop…they sell the cutest stationery aka “Messy Box”, photo albums, ABM Exclusives & much more for your home or office! Oh, and for you new bloggers or those of you that want to expand your brand check out “Blog Life Class” it’s on Sale now…


2. Design Love Fest 

Bri Emery is the founder and creator of Design Love Fest! DLF is a lifestyle blog in which Bri covers style, DIY’s, food, travel and much more. One of my favorite parts of this blog is the free downloads for your desktop or laptop, ever since I have found them it is all I use for my laptop; I currently have the Ash Bartholomew 1 (1382) which I’m currently obsessed with…. isn’t it adorable?! This is not the only reason I love DLF, they also carry courses for bloggers, here. DLF is one of those blogs you must read and maybe take a course or two.


3. The Fox & Fern

Jocelyn is the face of The Fox & Fern, she is a Style blogger, nature lover & book worm. I don’t even know where to begin, I absolutely love her style, there is just this laid back vibe about her that I love. Simplicity is my thing and I think this is why I’ve become particularly impressed by her blog. I don’t know about you but it is very inspiring when someone that has great style is consistent with it and you can tell they feel comfortable in their own skin. Jocelyn embraces her style so well, I can’t help at think, we should all feel comfortable in our own skin and wear clothing that truly embraces who we are as Women.


4. Chelsea-Bird

Chelsea is a blogger who shares about her personal style, new adventures and her daily life with her husband. You will find that Chelsea has a unique sense of style, it’s her own and she owns it. One of my favorite things about this blog is the stories that Chelsea shares with her readers, how open she is and I can’t help but love all the food that she shares, it makes my mouth water every single time. If you need some style inspiration, go check her out.


5. Let’s Fall In Love 

This blog is a Fashion and Lifestyle blog by Jessica Maria who resides in my city, Miami. Jessica’s Fashion is her own, very “Miamian” if that’s not a word, well, I just created it. She is also into Beauty {as you know, I love makeup}. She also takes us on a journey through her Life, which I find to be something sweet, not everyone is open to talk about there family, friends and significant other to the world. Jessica has this cool vibe about her that I know if I ever met her in person we would probably end up being great friends. So, if you’re wondering what it is like to live in Miami and the daily fashion trends happening in this city, then click the title to her blog and enjoy!

Lets Fall in Love

6. Baby Boy Bakery

Jacqui is a lifestyle blogger, married and the mother of Ryan and the new bundle of joy growing inside of her. I found Jacqui’s blog Baby Boy Bakery during a time where I personally was going through some hardships and a time I was feeling really depressed. Then, it was like a miracle from heaven that I came across her blog and fell in love. I do not know how she lost her boy Ryan, but I do know how much she and her husband love and miss him. She started the blog as a form of therapy for her and it has become a place where people who have suffered loss or are in severe pain can come together and comfort one another. Jacqui’s blog has inspired me personally, to live my life to the fullest and to never be afraid of new things. It’s a blog I always make sure to check on at least once a week and catch up on all the posts I might’ve missed. If you need some encouragement today, go check out this blog it will change your perspective on life.

They both decided to create this blog to have an outlet to share their experiences with all those who love to wander. On their blog you will find photography, recipes, DIY, fashion, design and adventures. This is one of the first blogs that I’ve ever read when it came to a couple actually sharing both of their passions on one blog. They’re both very different and you can see that as you read more of the blog. Let’s just say there is a little bit for everyone.

10. Flux & Flow

Jasmine! not only a fellow blogger but a friend, we’ve never met in person but I’m sure when we do we will have a blast! Jasmine has been featured on my blog before in 2014 with my #HelloScarBloggerProject it was so much fun getting to know a little bit more about the person I’ve come to build a nice friendship with. Where can I begin to describe her blog? I love everything about it, I love reading about her adventures! I also love encouraging her to live life because tomorrow is never promised. Jasmine’s health life hasn’t been an easy one, but she has pulled through with the help of her family and loved ones. I’m so proud to see how far she has come. Did I mention she lives where I dream of vacationing? Hawaii. Jasmine lives in paradise.

A Little Update…

hello amigos…

So, I’m going to UPDATE you all on all the things happening in my life right now…


Lately, I feel like I’ve been extra busy and productive, which I do not mind one bit. As you all know I have my YouTube channel “YAAAASSSS!!!” I know it’s been a long time coming but it is finally here. I’m taking it one week at a time and actually only uploading on Mondays! You can see this weeks video here. I’m excited to see where it takes me and I’m even more excited that you all get to come along on this exciting journey. I’m in the process of buying a trip-pod and two stands for some lights that I will be using for my videos! I cannot wait! I’ve literately taught myself how to edit my videos, something I thought I wasn’t going to be able to do, but I did it.

This past week was super busy and this week isn’t going to be any different. In fact, I think as the weeks pass on by they’re going to get even more busy. Yesterday was my husbands and I’s 8 year Anniversary, I cannot believe 8 years have come by so quickly, Where has time gone? I sit in shock just thinking about it, we always joked about passing the 5 year mark and I look back and smile because we’re still here! Marriage is not easy, but it is worth it when you’re doing life with the right person. I know for a fact that God gave me the right person and I am so blessed to have him in my life.

One thing I am looking forward to on this month is The Once Upon A Time Season 5 Premier on September 27th! Can we just take a moment to scream…. *fangirl moment* I am obsessed with this show, it’s kind of a funny story because my husband watched it and told me that I would really like it.. I made a face and laughed at the fact that he was watching a show with Disney characters. Then my 19 year old niece told me to watch it that I would love it… during the Summer my husband decided to get us Netflix and one day I just decided to start watching it and I was hooked! Now, I see myself going back watching some of my favorite past seasons and patiently waiting for Season 5 to begin. Ahhhh, I can’t wait.

At the end of this month I will be Naples bound with my sister and nephews, I travel up there as much as I can. It is two hours away from where we live but once I am up there it’s so relaxing. I try to go as often as possible to be around my sister, niece and nephew. One thing I always promised myself and them was that I would be there always to watch them grow up. So, I’m really excited to watch them go to high school, college, driving and also maintaining their jobs. God as truly been good to our family.

If I could encourage one of you today it would be to NEVER give up on your loved ones, no matter how bad the situation may look like on the inside. It can be very difficult watching someone struggle and go through something emotional that sometimes they can’t even control. If your family is going through something difficult stand by them. Trust me, I know first hand how difficult hardships can be, how easy it can be to just walk away from it all, but at the end you will see the light. Pray and ask God to help you through it and He will. Faith is what has kept our family together. Never give in, Never give up.

Hope you’re all having a great Wednesday!



Never Forget

hello amigos…

Today’s post was going to be about something different, I had written it about a week ago, but when I woke up this morning and realized what day it was I couldn’t allow myself to post anything else. 

14 years ago today, I was entering one of my classes in high school when I opened the door our teacher let out a scream and was crying! When we all looked at the TV screen we couldn’t believe our eyes… We all hugged each other and began to cry and pray. I will never forget that day and all the emotions that came with it. Just thinking about what happened makes me nauseous. I cannot begin to imagine or describe how the families that lost someone that day feel. My prayers for them today is peace. 

It saddens me that our younger generation is so disrespectful on a day like today. They seem not to understand or be ignorant to the fact that millions lost their lives that day. This generation today is so focused on themselves they have a hard time looking outside of themselves to the world around them and how their actions and words can affect people. We are all responsible to teach these young lives the meaning of today, the meaning of life itself.

As I sit here reminiscing and going down memory lane, I cry… Just like I cried on 9/11/01 America has never been the same since. I do believe we have come out stronger from this tragic event, but things are very different to what they used to be. 

Today, take a moment from your day to show some respect for those who passed away on this day 14 years ago. Say a prayer for their families. If you can reach out to someone today and be a light! 

In Rememberance of 9/11/01 




Happy Birthday | Gen + Brad!!

hello amigos!


to two important people in my life my Gen mermaid and my bugaboo for life, Brad. 

MerGen’s birthday was on Monday, Sept. 7th, 2015 and my BugabooBrad’s birthday was yesterday Tuesday, Sept. 8th, 2015!

To celebrate, I have written each one of them a note and I’m going to write them here. I was going to do two separate posts but I decided against it, since in real life we would usually celebrate their BIRTHDAY’S together.

so, with that being said…

Dear Mer-Gen,

Genesis Birthday

To the girl that loves mermaids, Netflix, mcd’s, Starbucks, B&N and long showers. I cannot believe you are already 19 years old, where the hell has time gone? I must say, I am very proud of the young woman you have become. Through many obstacles that we have all faced you’ve somehow managed to pull through and continue to push yourself forward every single day to create a better future for yourself. I’m so thankful to God that you have remained strong willed and motivated, even in days that you have felt like giving in and giving up, I know somehow you have found that inner strength to stand up and continue walking forward. I also cannot believe you’re already driving, you did that all on your own, hard work pays off… you never ask for hand outs, if you want something you work hard for it and get it. That is one of the things I admire about you most… “just keep swimming” On your 19th Birthday, I gave God thanks for bringing you into this world, because you were unexpected but have become the biggest blessing in the life of your mother and the rest of us, even though sometimes you can get on our nerves, we still LOVE you very much. This year I want you to experience life to the fullest, have fun but be safe, be wild and free, be weird because being normal is for the boring folk. I pray you have a full year of growth spiritually, mentally and I pray that God blesses your life more abundantly than ever before. I pray that you find a charity and give back, either of your time or monetarily. Giving back is a gift we all are able to give someone, we are blessed to be in the positions we are in today, if you help one person only you’ve already done something for someone that you will carry in your heart forever. Happiest of Birthday’s to you darling, We love you & are honored to call you our niece.



Dear Bugaboo Brad,

Happy Birthday Love!

brad bday

Where do I begin? I love you so much and am so honored to be your wife, it is an honor that God granted me. God knew what He was doing when He sent you to me. You are the most supportive, caring, selfless, loving person I know, the way you look out for your family and care for our two boys {our dogs} we are truly beyond blessed to have you in our lives. It is because of you that I get to do what I love, which is write/blog/create. You’ve taught me what love truly is. I want to honor you this day and thank you for all the small things you do like, cleaning the house when I’m gone for a week, walking the dogs, taking out the trash, putting my needs before your own, loving me unconditionally. I don’t think you noticed but yesterday early in the morning I said a prayer for you, I placed my left hand on your head and asked God to continue to protect & guide you in all you do. I asked God to restore any area in your heart that may feel broken and asked Him to bless your life with many more years. I can’t believe you’re 35! I remember when we met, we were young and we knew this was….well, is going to last a lifetime. You make me laugh when I don’t want to, you lift my spirits when I’m feeling weak and you become that strength I need in times of hardships and trouble. God has used you in ways I can’t even begin to list, it would be way to long. Thank you for loving me the way you do. I love you soooooooo much and can’t wait to spent eternity with you. You’re the BEST husband a girl could ask for & I’m pretty sure that in the near {or faraway} future you will be an incredible father. Cheers to many more to come.


your babe
