After daydreaming about it and saving up for it for a few years, we finally got the chance to board a cruise ship two weeks ago. I'II will never take for granted the moments I get to live out today, that I had prayed for in the past.Read More

Sometimes, in order for you to appreciate who you've become and figure out who you want to be, you need to go back and get to know the person you were. With good food and cocktails in between ;)Read More
Visited NYC just to go to the Met and take a private tour at the Rei Kawakubo exhibit with Vogue and Amore Pacific. Had brunch, some skinny pizzas, and a lot of fun.Read More
A roadtrip wouldn't be complete without a dope playlist. This one is laidback, positive, and lit at the same time.Read More
2016 hit us pretty hard. Thankfully we made it through and things are getting better. Why was our LA vacation a huge deal for me? What did it mean to us? Well, EVERYTHING. It was like us, finally exhaling. Finally walking barefoot on the sand. Finally getting a change of scenery.Read More
We don't usually celebrate Valentine's Day, because well...I'm just not into anything cheesy and lovey dovey like that (ever since I was a teenager, true story!). So when I noticed that Valentine's Day was like 2 weeks away from last weekend, I thought, hey, why not do a little staycation around my city of Las Colinas and have a little getaway with my little family. Any excuse to have a little getaway, right? So last weekend we stayed at NYLO Hotel Las Colinas. And we loved it!
I like the modern and spacious loft design, with a touch of industrial decor around the hotel. The room is just the right size for our small family. To get the glimpse of our staycation, click play and don't forget to subscribe on youtube.
We got everything from waffles, chinese food, to fresh-cut tulips, turned on the TV and just chilled there. It's nice to not have to clean up and make your bed every once in a while.
Yes, J loves his orange juice. And I love spending a Saturday, not having to worry about events and what-not. I didn't even post anything on my social media that day! I think that's the essence of 'celebrating love' - as most people believe February 14th is all about. I personally like having J with us, because, well...my love is for him too, not just for Mr. Man. And it's just more convenient to have us all together. It's just the 3 of us anyways. But whatever works for you, kid or no kid, as long as you can have a little 'sabbath' from work and routines and getaway with your loved ones.
We talked, argued a little bit, ate, laughed, and rested. I don't know what they put in our pillows but we slept good that night. Cute coffee mug? I know! I got it from ILY Couture. It's on sale now so get it quick!
The next day, we had breakfast at The Loft at NYLO.
And Mr.Man played pool while Jerome chilled with his youtube videos.
