Mardi Gras 2017

Its Nola ! We going live babayy!!

(Do to the fact that this blog post is so late, I’m just going to talk briefly and post pictures in this blog and do two food reviews in another.)

Its no secret that I love travelling and every time I do I get the chance to meet a lot of new people which is my favorite part. It always awakens me to the fact that we live in a world full of many different people with different cultures, food, and even slang.

Ok obviously I’m the fabulous one in the pink! And the rest is the good group of people I met.

 

I feel that New Orleans is a good place to experience because it has so much culture and history. NOLA is a place for people that like the city but still like the homie and friendly feel from people. The complete opposite of Vegas, New York, or Cali. The streets are filled with people but friendly people. Even if you do not go for Mardi Gras, New Orleans is still the place to visit. Its a PARTY every night! Especially on Bourbon.

I truly enjoyed myself this year, Ill just let the pictures tell the story!

Chef Fiesta

Although my blog is not just about food: we all know its mainly about food! This past semester I changed my minor from Marketing to Hospitality Management. I made this move because I found myself getting more involved in the restaurant business.

In this class we will be learning the business aspect of managing a restaurant, hotel, or casino. Most excitingly we will be learning how to cook! However I have never been much of a cook even through I make a mean RED VELVET DEEP FRIED OREO ! I am excited to learn and get more familiar with different taste and focus on preparation !

I will be posting recipes and pictures of the things I make in class so stay tuned. Most of the recipes should be affordable and simple to make so DONT WORRY! If I can do it so can you.

Say HELLO to Chef Fiesta!


Code RED

Every female in the world knows what it is like to have a period, but not every female knows what it’s like to not have a tampon or sanitary pad not one at all!

That’s why I started this project: it is a lot of females of need on the streets that can not provide for themselves as well as others. So I thought to myself “how can I help these ladies”. At that very moment I knew what to do.

First – I contacted my mom, family & friends to propose the idea! 

Knowing I have a good support team …

I then started asking for donations. I asked for tampons, pads, toiletries & blankets. 

 Soon Enough I had it !

(Some of the items)

I received over hundreds of donations which I was truly greatful for!

I would like to thank all of the people that donated and also inform you guys that this will not be the last time that I do something like this so stay alert !

Fall Semester Room Decor!

Back to school!

I know personally getting decorations for my new apartment has been stressful and expensive. Especially looking for pillows that aren’t to expensive for my budget.

While shopping in Hobby Lobby I ran across these pillow covers! They allow you to pick any style you want and they’re so much cheaper. I paid only $9.99 for my pillow case but they do have cheaper ones.

The pillow cases has zippers on it so you can just put the pillow inside.

imageMy pillow is a 18×18 so it is a medium size pillow.

I love how the pillow case looks in my room and on my bed! Here are so pics ! I hope you like it too.
