It has been a long time since I have sat down and written a post. A real honest to goodness post from my brain to the keyboard. I have wanted to sit down so many times and just say “hello” like I used to, but I never had the time. I was always under a deadline, exhausted, busy, or mentally, physically and emotionally unable to write. So I decided that today would be the day. Today, no matter how busy I was; I was going to say hello. I am going to tell you about my Introduction. Story. Inspiration. New Beginning.

My Tecla Awards Red Carpet Makeover by JcPenney #SoWorthIt
As a Mom of 6 kids, 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 bunny, and 2 turtles; fashion is something that eludes my daily life. If it’s sweats , jeans or sweatshirts, it’s on me and let’s not get too detailed about the hair; ponytail is my style of choice & necessity.
Last month I found out I was going to be styled and walk the red carpet for the Tecla Awards during Hispanicize. My Tecla Awards Red Carpet Makeover by JcPenney #SoWorthIt
I had always wanted to attend Hispanicize and even more so, the amazing Tecla Awards; and now I had a chance to attend it in style.
I received a questionnaire from my stylist, asking me about my favorite styles and colors, and of course I was the difficult one who gave her paragraphs of information. I explained my major and minor insecurities and the reasons for not wanting to wear certain things. I did not expect

Finding MY Inspiration In A Movie About So Much More Than Running, About My Culture #MiInspiracion
Last week I was sent a screening copy of the “McFarland USA” movie, my Family watched it; and I do have to say that I was completely surprised by it and it’s after effects. As a tomboy I am a big fan of sports related movies, especially when they are based on a true story. I knew this movie was based on a true story, but I didn’t really know much more about it. The fact that I am Mexican and the movie is based on Mexican families had not made me more excited to watch it; despite what my friends thought (which was that I would want to watch this movie because it was about Mexican families living in California (hello! I am Mexican, and my family lives in California))
My Husband, our kids, and myself were watching it together. Like with many “popular” movies, I was apprehensive about watching it, trying not to love it at first glance because I wanted to give it a full look before forming my opinion. After the first 5 minutes, there was a scene that caught me

A Bond Between Mother & Child w/ DiMe Media & Coca-Cola #Inseparable
“A Bond Between Mother & Child w/ DiMe Media & Coca-Cola #Inseparable” is a post I have literally cried tears over. I was so excited to write this post because I knew exactly what I wanted to tell the world, then not once but twice; there was a glitch and I lost my entire posts (keep in mind I said twice). As I sit here and get ready to tell you MY story about a bond, I am happy because I can relive it once again 😉
When I was 4 years old my Father passed away, I saw and was present through it all, and after the funeral; I fell into a “deep sleep” The Doctor said it was the first case of “self-induced coma” he had ever witnessed. I slept for 3 months. When I woke up, my Mom and my Uncle were next to my bed, they were so happy to see me, I recall it so clear. I was confused why they were so happy to see me; I was just waking up from a nap is what I thought. The next week we moved to Mexico to live with my “Grandma” Ma’Maria, my Grampa, my 2 Uncles and my 2 Aunts (In Mexican tradition, the children live with the Parents until they marry). My Mom had a major breakdown from my Father’s death.
