Studs !

I work with kids, and usually I am always around little ones.SO I have traded in my hoops and dangles for studs. I have became so inlove with them , that I cant help but buy a new pair atleast every week =X . I get most of my studs from little chinese/korean boutiques.Ones that are relative to a vintage look is what catches my interest a lot. Here are some of the 1,000s that I have. You can click on them for a larger view.

Whats in my purse ?

I have been asked a couple times to do this again , since I did it - umm, two years ago? Lol. I havent because I was so lazy - I carry SO much crap with me. BUT now that I am pregnant , I cant carry so much around - since my back kills me most of the time and because too much weight is not safe for me to carry around all day. I have been into using Shoulder/Crossbody Bags. The one I am usually using is from Converse , which I bought at Target - I would say for about 20 dollars the most.

A Christmas must !!!!

I havent gone since I was about 10 years old & NEED to make it happen this year.

& Im crazy but you like it !

I believe her to be one of the most unique artist out here. She is who she is , whether people like it or not. She gets critisized a lot for how she looks, how she performs, and her music. But I love her because she has not changed just because many dont agree with what she does and how she wants to do it.

Her music is the kind of music you just really gotta listen to, it has such a symbolic meaning to it. She helps females realize they are beautiful no matter their size, and also shows how educated and caring she is - not letting fame get to her head. Shes from my lovely hometown Barranquilla.

Top 10 things I love most about Christmas ....

1. 25 days of Christmas - I know longer gotta wait to watch all the great christmas movies I have been watching since my childhood.

2. The Christmas Tree Lighting in NYC - I go every single year. Hopefully this year, I dont get there so late. But it was great seeing Shakira perform last year, even if it was in the rain. Lol.

3. Decorating - If you know me well you know I am the Queen of Holiday Decorating. Lol. I love making my home look festive for the holidays. BUT Christmas is the holiday I go ABOVE&BEYOND.

4. Gingerbread House making - Get myself a cute little kit , and though I dont enjoy eating it much - its fun to do , and nice to look at.

5. Buying Gifts/Sending Cards - Not only do I love shopping for peoples gifts, but wrapping them are just so theraputic to me. Lol. I zone out and just wrap like a proffesional :) ! Also if you have known me for a while you know I never go a year without sending out to my loved ones a nice christmas card. It is something I always helped my mom with when I was a little girl , and now I go out and buy my own boxes of cards to send out the first week of December!

6. House watching - Its something I have been doing since I was young with my father. We go to really nice areas in NYC to see these beautiful houses decorated. There is one in particular that we go to every year which works with Toys for Tots, and we bring gifts to drop off , while taking pictures infront of it.

7. Novenas - Another thing I have been doing with my family and friends for years, which is basically just me and my mom now. Lol. But we sit together every night , starting 9 days before christmas and we pray, read day by day the coming/birth of Jesus, and sing songs about Jesus. It used to be a really big event when I was younger , in which we all got together at different homes daily,drinking hot chocolate and we would use maracas,tamborines,drums as we sang our songs of praise. All up until Christmas Day.

8. Christmas music - YES, I am very proud to say I own a couple christmas CDs such as mariah carey, destinys child, and ashanti. Lol. I pop these badboys in right when it hits Decemer first !

9. Family & Food - Because without either of them , I would be lost. Lol. I love getting dolled up , and being gathered around family. When I was younger it was all about how many gifts you got , but once you grow older you realize gifts are no longer needed to make Christmas the best holiday ever.

10. JESUS CHRIST - Because after all , HE is the reason for this season. I anticipate the moment it hits 12, to say Happy Birthday to Jesus, and put Baby Jesus at the naciemiento/nativity we have at home. He is not only my best friend, but he is the lover of my soul. The man with all the answers. So to wait every December to celebrate his birthday is my greatest joy of all.


Friday Night Lights !

Its finally here - & in my opinion its better than his others, some of the songs on here are from his other mixtape also just diff changes. Check it out if you have not yet. Here are some joints ---

I surrender to every word you whisper;

I love this song , I am not a big Drake fan , but I guess this isnt too bad. Lol. I love Rihanna though , her style is amazing & lyrically I love her songs. But what I love most about this is the video --- because its filmed fully in the Lower East Side. I have grown to absoultely love the LES, considering I basically live there. I spend too much of my time out there , since I work in the Lower. All that you see in this video , is what I walk daily - every single day. I love that artist are still using NYC as art, it makes videos so much better. Its not all glits and glam , it shows reality, and beauty in things we see all the time - but never really stop & admire.


The month of Thanks !

I love the holiday season. Dressing up, the food, houses filled with family, the music ! I love it all. November is a very packed/busy month for me ---- its my last month of classes this semester , and then I just have one more week in December , not including finals week which is just two days for me. I am very excited for December but I will enjoy November for now ! :)

Polygamy ....Good? Bad?....

In one of my classes , my final paper ( Thank you Lord ) has to be about one specific type of family and how it is seen culturally/socially. I chose to do Polygamous Families , just because it has always been something I have had double thoughts/opinions on. I feel it will be interesting to really look into it , and feel it out. I know it will make a great essay that will give me a well deserved A+ too ! Lol. So I will be def checking out old seasons of Big Love , and now the new show on TLC called " Sister Wives". What do you think about polygamy ?

Hello Baby :)

So me and the boo decided to give the baby a christmas stocking of its own , even though our little blessing has yet to come & we have no idea what gender the baby will be. Lol. I guess you can say were getting ahead of ourselves. We got the baby a couple of things already for its stocking , Wont show you just about everything (Christmas Post will be up about a week after Christmas)But here is something we got ....& I just love it. So I have decided to keep building on the baby book collection so the baby can have its own little library before it can even start reading ! ♥

Sew Psyched !

I am loving this color. Currently my nail color, and will be till the end of November, unless I find another. Lol.

You cant see the real color from my pics , it looks different in different lighting. So I added a picture from Essie.

Its a really pretty army green/gray ! :)


Can I live ?

I am far from a nick cannon fan, Lol. But this song hits home. Brings a tear to my eye, and reminds us of how much of a blessing a child is !

I apologize ....

I went mia , but I have great excuses...

- midterms week
- work
- getting things ready to move out !

&& lastly , the most important one :
I am expecting. Soon you can call me mommy Jessica <3

This is huge & drastic news, because of course a baby changes your life forever. I no longer live for me , I now gotta live for the best of my baby. I was happy the very first moment I found out. I had no doubts I was going to keep it , and I knew my boyfriend would be a happy camper to find out we were expecting. Now all we do , and all we talk about is for our baby. I have learned a lot these 2 months of pregnancy ....

- I have mastered picking things up with my feet. Lol
- Saltine crackers is my holy grail
- You get spoiled more than when you were a child
- A barf bag & hand sanitizer is ALWAYS needed
- Dress like its 10 degrees always, you CANNOT get sick
- morning sickness means its morning all day , every night -_-
- Pregnancy is the easiest way to gain weight, haha.
- People will treat you like a child while your pregnant !
- You will never feel happier , ever.

Its my first trimester, which I have heard to be the hardest of them all. Soon I will reach my 2nd which I heard is the best one , so Im very much looking forward to it. Then you go right back to the hard parts. Lol. At the end of it all , I know its worth it. I cant explain how happy & excited I am to go through this experience.

The card my babe gave me a week after we found out the news!
