Hometown Hotspot: A Culinary Escape

Happy Wednesday!! Today, I got the chance to attend a Grand Opening of the Garden Party hosted by Brothers Signature Catering & Events . Y chikas...let me tell you...the party got started right as one was greeted with Summer cocktails followed by delicious sampling food while listening to a mixture of vibrant music by The Groove

So, in case you missed out on this event, don't worry, here is a quick glimpse of what this company has to offer: decor, food, drinks for small to large gatherings (ex: Birthdays to Weddings). However, if you don't need a caterer right now, that's okay because the company has a café onsite for your cravings.  

Eat a little, Drink a Little and Enjoy Life

Short Sleeve Vintage Dress

This cute short sleeve vintage dress is perfect for a culinary escape. Plus the dress reminds me of beautiful Greece with a pop of blue over the white material. After viewing this pattern, I am obsessed with finding something similar to it and it doesn't have to be the exact same dress, but I like to find the pattern on a shirt, blouse or skirt, so tune in for Wednesday's blog post.

Wednesday's Baseball Cap

Today's half day of work was great because I decided to trade my wedges and fancy bun for a baseball cap and flats.

It's not often my husband and I get to spend quality time together because of our opposite work schedules, but we do make every effort to squeeze fun quality days.

Remember Chikas,it's important as a couple to make the time for your partner, lover and friend and enjoy each other company.

Sunday's Yoga

Today, somewhere in San Diego people are sound asleep, but for others who decided to wake up early Sunday morning like myself got to enjoy a day of Yoga Faith. Sunday's experience was all about connecting mind, body and soul and balancing everything in between.
The journey to Yoga practice was filled with great moments through out the day, if you like to read more about my experience visit my La Saludable Latina. And chika's, for this fitness yoga day, I wanted to wear something light and cool because the humidity after the last couple rainy days San Diego was a little unbearable (reminding me much of South Texas).

Start From Where You Stand

What's the dream you envision for this season of your life? Where do you start from where you stand?  The dreams or goals we like to obtain may seem unthinkable at times because of the unknown fear in our hearts, but it's no secret that no matter how big or small the dream/goal may be, no one is prepared enough or perfectly ready.
So, stop procrastinating about where to begin and let's not be one of those people who talk your ear off about the reasons they can't & start from where you stand.

A Little Flamingo in My Life

Forget about your work week and go out for nice cocktail or two with your lover or friends and remember to ditch your slacks for some chic ripped jeans. Your transition from work to an evening dinner will be quick & easy.
For San Diego weeknights like these, I wouldn't dream of leaving the house with an extra pair of jeans. Plus ladies, the jeans make your work day look easy and ready for some happy hours specials.
So,leave your work agenda behind and let your hair loose because tomorrow is another sweet day to accomplish your goals for the week.

Boots & Shorts

Remember to slow down a bit and take a deep breath because there are not many weekends in the month to enjoy a little sun outdoors. Throw on a pair of booties with a simple T-shirt and shorts and leave all anxious thoughts and emotions behind.  And ladies, don't think about the should of...would of..could of ....because right now it's about being happy in the moment.
Let go of the negative vibes and hold on to what you love the most. In all sincerity it's your life that's worth taking every step and finding all the pieces of you that is most treasured.

March Anthony True Professional: Strictly Curls

 How many times can you count when your curls where driving you CRAZY? 123456...
Well.... I can count up to a hundred times or more. Growing up with curly hair wasn't easy and there were times, I felt I was cursed for not having straight hair.

Frizzy, tangled, dry and coarse has always been an issue for me and when I would go to the hair salon stylist after stylist would always recommend deep conditioning treatments. So, time after time, I would do my deep conditions and buy different styling products, but nothing would really give me a satisfying outcome.

However, most recently while shopping at CVS with my extra care bucks. I was on a mission to find new curly hair products that would benefit my hair and I came across the Strictly Curls brand by March Anthony. After comparing a couple products over the shelf, it was an easy decision that I would purchase the Curl Envy Perfect Curl Styling Cream along with the Curl Enhancing Styling Foam.

And I am one happy Curly Hair Chika!
Here are my helpful steps below:

1.Shampoo & Condition your hair
2 Use a towel to gently dry your curls
3. While your hair is damped apply a good portion of Curl Envy Perfect Curl Cream
4.  saturate your hair with the product and massage through hair evenly or use a wide come to distribute product and loosen curls
5. Scrunch your curls and if you have flat areas use your fingers to twist the curl
6. After your done twisting certain areas, use the towel again to scrunch Curls
7. Apply Curl Enhancing Styling Foam
8. distribute evenly through hair
9. Get a diffuser and connected to a blow dryer
10. Diffuse your wet curls to get a smooth, soft and curly look.

Let's Bike Ride

This year's fourth of July was spent with my dear friend Maira and we had plans to spend it in  Coronado Island.  As we drove past the bridge to see all the red, white and blue American flags you immediately felt the love and pride for this country, but we also realized parking was a nightmare.  
So, the back up plan was to drive back over the bridge into downtown. There we found several parking lots available and we found one located on seventh street with reasonable pricing.  And just when I was about to pay, a kind women approached us with her two children & offered their parking ticket as a kind gesture. (note: It just goes to show you there are still kind people with goodness in their hearts.) Thank You!!
We were off to a great start because downtowns atmosphere was full of people wanting to celebrate Independence Day. We were surrounded by delicious food, drinks, lively people and good laughs.  After we were done with our meals, we started walking towards the bay to figure out where would be the best location for the firework show.
And, so, we walked and spotted Deco Bike Rentals   and it didn't take much convincing to have my friend join me on this bike journey to see San Diego from a different perspective, plus we were exercising at the same time!
Deco Bike Rentals are spotted in the five cities listed below:
 Miami, FL
 Bay Harbor Island, FL
 City of Miami
City of San Diego
They are fun, easy and convenient .
Seats are adjustable and all bikes provide a basket to place all your belongings

Workout Goal

Truth be told, I just haven't been able to get back into my work out routine.
As a previous athlete in cross country, track and swimming, I was at the top of my game, but after a couple of years of not competing, it's been downright hard to be motivated. 
I keep telling myself no excuses, but dam!! it's hard at times and I cant exactly pin point why it's a struggle for me. I recently had small talk with a coach and am reflecting back on what I said, " I am just burned fuel is empty.."  and I realized at home that's not how I want to feel.
So, chikas, esta semana (this week) I'm re-committing myself to have a turn around point towards my fitness goals. I haven't shared this before, but I feel that some of you maybe on the same boat as me and I want you to know you are not alone.
If this is your first time trying to workout and don't know what to do, check out What's Your Workout Personality?. It an easy questionnaire that will help you narrow down what you like and at the end it will recommended a workout, but don't feel bad if the results are the total opposite.  Because when I took mine it said Yogi and couldn't disagree because I love yoga, but I also like to do Crossfit.
