My Mom and I Participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk!

No comments:

My mom, fellow colleagues, and myself participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk! It felt so good to wake up as early as I did to do something productive on my Saturday morning and participate at an event benefiting the research and cure of breast cancer.

The survivors and their families, as well as families of those that lost the battle against breast cancer truly inspire me that no matter what predicament I am in, if I have faith, I will persevere like a champion. This day marks a day that I will never forget.

I have never been to Vinoy Park before. There is a first time for everything, and I loved the park. It is a nice, serene place where I can go and walk with Da Vinci. I had so much fun, all in the name of raising awareness!

Check out some photos and videos that I took on our way to and during the walk below! :-)

Happy birthday, Dad!

Thank you for being a part of my life, and working hard to make sure that I have a roof over my head and food on my plate. I will always appreciate you for working hard; you are where I get my hard-working genes from LOL!

I hope that you have enjoyed your special day! There are many more celebrations over the weekend!

Love always,
Daddy's little girl. :-)

My Mom and I Walk at the Avenue Fall 2014 Fashion Show!

No comments:

Hello and good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen! My mom and I had the honor of walking at the Avenue Fall 2014 Fashion Show! (We are going to have to put "Part-time Models" on our resumes LOL!) You guys may have seen photos of me modeling sportswear in previous shows, but I went with something different this time around. (My hairstyle was not intentional, by the way. I had it up in a bun, and when I tried to fix it, it had this nice, sleek look on the sides and curls in the back so I just left it like that.)

I am wearing:
Rhinestone Earrings
Filigree Medallion Bib Necklace
Black Rhinestone Bangles
Striped Ruana with Toggle
Basic Seamfree Tank
Tummy Control Pull-On Pant
Sofia Cloudwalkers Comfort Wedge

My mom is wearing:
Filigree Leaf Rope Necklace
Black Rhinestone Bangles
Pleat Front Pocket Shirt
Ponte Knit Legging
Vienna Faux Suede Buckle Bootie

Check out the rest of the photos from the fashion show! :-)

Farewell, Captain! ⚾

Nobody is born into this world knowing the game of baseball. I had the opportunity of learning about baseball with my dad. When I was a little girl living in the Bronx, New York, my parents and I would go consecutively to a Yankees' game. I remember during one of those games, while I was looking at Derek Jeter at the Jumbotron, Jeter hit a fowl ball. Guess where that fowl ball went? I had no idea that I would be so close to a ball hit by Jeter's bat. My dad's fingernail broke the fowl ball's fall, but along with his fingernail, went the fowl ball rolling down the aisle. It was so upsetting letting that ball get away, but at least I have the memory of being close to that ball (thank God I did not get hit in the head!).

Derek Jeter:

Thank you for serving my hometown for the past 20 years (Damn! That means I was 2 years old when Jeter became a Yankee. Wait... I was 2 years old when he became a Yankee. He is number 2. I am 22 years old now. Coincidence much? I think not!) Anyways... I literally balled my eyes out watching Jeter play at Yankee stadium for the last time. It is so sad (for us Yankees fans, at least) because the last O.G. standing has retired. There will never be another like Derek Jeter. The Yankees will always and forever be my hometown team, but they will never be the same. I have to get used to seeing the new players because there is no more Bernie Williams, Tino Martinez, Jorge Posada, Andy Pettite, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter...

Thank you for everything that you have done for the Bronx and for others.
