Kipling USA

Friday night's Kipling event was a remarkable evening
 as I had an opportunity to view the new spring handbag collection, 
but also support the empowering women event.

Now ladies here's a little story about Kipling; it's been around since 1987 when 
three designers came across the crinkled nylon fabric in Antwrep, Belgium.
Since then the 3 designers have created a bright and colorful
collection that simply puts a smile to your face.

 Aside from the beautiful handbag collection, the
 charity drive was a success as women donated a new gently used bags.
I happen to donate one of my favorite Steve Madden bags and 
it wasn't hard to let go
because I knew the bag will traveling to a
woman who will be transitioning from unemployment to back to work.

Ladies have you seen Kiplings Printed Cases ?
They are the most versatile cases because you can use it for back to school items
or if your blogger like myself you can use it to store beauty items when traveling.

Thank you Kipling for the gift!

Media Kick-Off Party SDLFF

San Diego is extremely excited to be hosting the 23rd Annual Latino Film Festival. So, to get things
started right  a media kick-off party was hosted at Quad Ale House in downtown Gaslamp district.
I was excited to attend this event and although I didn't know many people in the room, I have to say the environment was quite friendly and inviting. On top of that, I'm the type of person that isn't shy about starting a conversation with people I don't know. I mean having to talk about films, food and music was quite entertaining and meeting actors/actresses, directors and chefs was pretty amazing.

Sandy Toes

The weather has been warm and cool lately, so it was a perfect enough to take
a stroll by the beach and enjoy the scenery. 
I mean it's not that often I get to sit down and inhale/exhale the
 beach air and feel the warm sun rays on my skin.

I mean really...take a moment to sit down and sink your fingers and toes into the warm sand
and before you know it you forget about work, errands, to do list, laundry (the list can go on).
When you take the time to yourself (Me, Myself and I), your breathing becomes more calm
and your heartbeat moves into the rhythm of the waves and now your in a good chakra,

The Cheeses of Europe

 This Thursday, I got to attend a preview event hosted by The Cheeses of Europe, a European Union-financed cheese board who promotes anything and everything that has to do with French cheese here in the United States. The organization hosts mass samplings of different cheeses for event-goers to try at pop-up events in Miami, New York, San Francisco, and now, San Diego. This cheese extravaganza will offer over 30 different types of cheeses to try and is free both to attend and taste.

A Diabolo Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day Chikas!!!
Although I wish I was on a romantic date with my husband, sadly he had
to work, so I am spending my sweet time reminiscing our engagement photos 
and brainstorming some sweet cocktail mix ideas with some of the diabolo drinks.
And why not include some sweets along the way..

Now, I am not a huge fan of soda nor really drink
soda beverages due to high sugar and caffeine.
However, I came across a line sodas while out in Los Angeles known as the
 "Diabolo".  A collection of all natural sparkling refreshments that also
 includes an exotic line of flavors as well as provide low calorie intake.

Today has been an emotional rollercoaster.
When you loose beloved family member your heart aches
in a million directions.
The pain exist and
 there is no good way to go about it.
Trying to stay focus at work seemed like eternity and
trying to keep it together cool and collectively is so much harder.
After coming home, I didn't know what to do with my time
so I laid in bed trying to catch up on some sleep, but that didn't work.
 I can only remember her sweet smiles, hugs and wonderful
Then my husband called me (and I know his heart aches as much as mine), but
he said I needed to stay busy, so I got up cleaned,
walked the dog and decided to blog on previous photo shoot I did a couple days ago.
For now this helps keep my mind busy, but I know reality will sink in again.

Monday's Destination

 January is gone and just like that February starts.
Life on the road may not always be simple, even when
your on way to work. All the curves and turns you must take
before you arrive to your destination.

This new season has me feeling a certain kind of way,
I don't know if it's because I love seeing all the green hills around me
or because I'm taking a leap of faith in my professional goals. 

The truth is I'm hella nervous about the outcome, but it's good to take
risk and chances. So, to get this week's mood started right, I am sharing this quick
simple, but chic look.
