1. What is your favorite holiday tradition?                                                                                        My Favorite Holiday Tradition is decorating the Christmas Tree with my family members. When we decorate the Christmas Tree we listen to our favorite holiday music. We even sing around the  Christmas Tree while decorating. Doing this as a family makes me feel more happier. I believe Christmas is a time of happiness.

2. What is your favorite go to winter lippies?                                                                            During the Winter I like to use different lipsticks. However, my favorite color to use in winter is fuchsia pink and red. I love the Artistry lip  glosses and lipsticks.

3. What is your favorite winter scent? (Candles, perfumes, etc.)                                                 My favorite winter Scent is Cinnamon Candles. I also like drinking Cinnonm tea which is very popular in Mexico. Cinnamon tea is also very healthy and has a very pleasant scent.

4. What is your go-to winter fashion trend?                                                                         During the Christmas time, I love wearing boots. When I was younger my mom will always make me wear boots which I didn’t like. But know I love wearing them especially black and brown boots. Boots for me are a form of expressing because there are different colors, styles, and sizes.

5. Your all-time favorite holiday movie?                                                                                           My two favorite movies of the holidays are The Grinch and Elf. I love these two movies because the stories have a very special message.  Watching these movies makes my Christmas more special.

6. Your all-time favorite holiday song?                                                                                             My favorite Holiday Song is Jingle Bells. I love this song because it has a lot rhythm.  However, I also love all Christmas Music.

7. Do you prefer to travel during the holidays or stay home?                                      During the Holiday I prefer to travel. However, my family is not that far away from me. I love spending time with my family.

8. Your favorite winter skincare must-haves?                                                                                       In the Winter I have to take care of my skin because it tends to dry. I love to use a product that hydrates and nourish my skin. I use the Artistry Hydra-V which contains vitamins A, C, and E. I totally recommend this product.

9. Your favorite winter hair care must have?                                                                                    I love how my hair has been growing. However, during the winter I love to protect it with Satinique Hair Oil Serum. This serum makes my hair healthier and shiny.     

10. Your favorite winter activity?                                                                                                      My favorite winter activity is making DIY ornaments for the Christmas tree. I also like to color Christmas pages. I also love to sing Christmas songs.

11. Your must-have winter beauty product?                                                                                      For the winter the beauty product that I must have are eyeshadows that are festive for the holidays. However, I only like to where them on special Holiday events.

12. Do you love the snow or hate it?                                                                                  Snow….To be honest I have never seen snow. However, it looks like fun. I hope to one day see snow. 

13. One item on your wishlist this year:                                                                                         This year one thing on my wishlist is a ring light. I would like a ring light so I can have good quality lighting  in my youtube videos.  However, I am always grateful for everything I have and get. I believe that what is important in Christmas is giving to those who are less fortunate.

14. Your favorite holiday treat?                                                                                                           My favorite holiday treat is rice pudding ( Arroz con Leche). Rice pudding is very good with some Cinnamon sprinkled on top. I also love Hot Cocoa with marshmallows and whipped cream. All of this writing on treats is making me hungry.

15. Holiday shopping finished before December or last minute?                                       Holiday Shopping for me is always done last minute. I think I always do last minute shopping because I have no clue on what to get my family members.

The Best Christmas Present!!

     pexels-photo-264988.jpeg

         Christmas one of the greatest times of the year!! I love Christmas! For me, Christmas has always been my favorite holiday.  I think it is my favorite holiday because at the age of five I received the greatest gift of all.I say this because my father rarely saw me as a baby. He always worked and we will probably see him every three months or maybe a year later. So, basically, when I was younger we did not celebrate Christmas with my father because he was always working. He worked so much because when I was a toddler many difficult situations happened in my family. My father had to do everything to help my mother support us. He traveled to get a better job so he can help support us. At the age of five for the first time, I got to experience my first Christmas with my father.  I was so excited because I had never seen a tree with ornaments. Where I grew up Christmas was celebrated but we could not afford the ornaments, tree, and gifts. Christmas was celebrated in another form, however, it was also beautiful. The first Christmas that I celebrated with my dad, mother, brother and other family members was amazing. It was a time of joy and being with the family. For me, the best Christmas gift was spending Christmas with my father after so many years. My father for me has always been an important person in my life. That Christmas that I spend with my dad I was very happy because I finally had my first Christmas that I can remember with him at the Age of 5. Although my dad worked a lot I know he did it for us.So, every Christmas I  always remember my first Christmas.        My dad loves Christmas. My dad might not get us presents but what he does do is give us love. So, this year I am still excited to spend Christmas with my father. I love how he always tells jokes on Christmas. So the best Christmas Present that I received was spending my first Christmas with him. Remember to always remind your parents that you love them.  I say this because they might have done something for you that you do not know about. pexels-photo.jpg

What Thanksgiving Means To Me…

pexels-photo-255441Thanksgiving a holiday that brings everyone united.  It is not about the food. It is not about the Black Thursday or Friday. It is about being Thankful for family, home and many great things in your life. It is about spending quality time with your family. It is about making memories that you will always remember.  It is about forgiving a family member that might have done something wrong to you. It about sharing the food with your family and those who are less fortunate. Personally, for me, Thanksgiving  is a holiday that we should spend with the family and show that you love them. I say this because they might be there right now but someday they might be gone. There is a saying “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.” So be Thankful for what you have this Thanksgiving.  Remind your family that you love them and how special they are to you. Let me know in the comments: What Thanksgiving means to you?

Reflecting On Life!

There are days when you are happy. There are days when you are sad. However, there are days when you’re both.
Today I was a very happy day. I went to the park and felt amazing. I was on the swing with the fresh air blowing on my face. I was thinking about all the great things that I have accomplished in my life. How I have overcome many obstacles throughout the years. I was also thinking that there are still many goals I have to accomplish. I was reflecting on how there are so many beautiful things in the world. Many things that as we go through life we forget.
We get so busy that we forget to sometimes enjoy life.We are just in a hurry to get to work, school and other
places that we forget to live. We take everything for granted. We forget to look up at the sunrise in the morning and see how amazing it is. We forget to look at the flowers and see how their beauty is just everywhere. We forget to say Thank You to God for another day. We need to be aware that there are people in a hospital bed fighting for their life. There are people who didn’t get to see the amazing sunrise that you did not look at because you were simply busy. Take a break and enjoy the little moments in life. Enjoy every moment you can because you never know when is your last day. Enjoy your family because they are the biggest blessing you have. Do not let any negative situations ruin your day. Do not be an ogre be happy and enjoy every moment of it. Every new day is a new opportunity to start over. Move forward forget about the past.

Thank you for reading!! Wishing you success!!
