HAPPY THANKSGIVING YA'LL!! Some families dress up uber fancy, while others are casual and laid back. My family in particular, we dress comfortable so we are able to stuff our faces ! Wearing something form fitting on this holiday is no bueno!

If a dress or skirt isn't your thing, here is a simple outfit idea that will fit the festivities of Thanksgiving.



Taking photos near this orange tree is very special to me. My grandmother who is not longer with us nurtured, and cared for this orange tree which is now so many feet high and still produces oranges. I remember as a child picking oranges and then my grandma would freshly squeeze the juice into pitchers. I miss my grandma all the time, but i miss her even more during the holidays. My grandma would of LOVED this photo!



Hair and Nails complimentary by Valeria (aka Valerie), who is an aspiring Hair, Make Up, and Nail Stylist. You can find her work on Instagram @heroes_and_hair . I love her style of mixing her passion for Marvel Comics and Beauty! She's truly unique and I look forward to seeing her grow in the beauty industry. I am also happy to call this stylist my sister and friend. You can practice on me anytime sis!


I hope you all are enjoying your thanksgiving as much as I am. I am so thankful for this journey called 'Blogging' because it has opened new doors for me and I have been able to express myself through pictures and words. I am extremely thankful for my family and their constant support and love. For my boyfriend Ivan, my partner in crime. My friends who have stuck by me for years and even though we are far apart, when we are together it's like we were never distant. I am thankful for having  a roof over my head, food on the table, the clothing on my back and for the lifestyle I have. It's not glamorous but it's enough for me to stay humble and true to my roots. With that being said, I am thankful for my health and well being and for my job. I have been so blessed overall, but also since making the big move to the Big D and it was the best decision I have made thus far.

From me to you, Happy Thanksgiving & many blessings to you and your family! <3
