The Pageant...

This past month I have been super busy in preparation for the First Annual Caribfest Pageant! The pageant was on Sunday at 7 pm and it was a success. It was such a great experience and I had a ball. I didn't place but the experience and confidence that I had after walking away from the event made me feel like a QUEEN!! I am waiting on the photographer to post the pictures of the event to facebook !! So I can post the pictures on here!! Also I felt like a million bucks while performing my talent!! I had on a Badgley Mischka gown !! I felt amazing and it didn't help that the song I was performing was in SIGN LANGUAGE and it was an encouraging uplifting song as well!! What a ball I had!! Adrie Latang was crowned queen of the event and she is gorgeous inside and out and was so deserving of the crown!! Overall it was an amazing experience that I wouldn't trade in for the world!

New Job.... = Shopping is Needed! :)

I'm super excited because I have a new job at the Buckle but now I have to change up my wardrobe a little bit since I have worked at JcPenney's for  years and you are required to wear Buckle's merchandise! So now I have an excuse to go shopping and to clean out my closet!! But also to model some of the outfits from Penney's that I won't be wearing anymore!!  Let the photo sessions begin!! I've gotta look up tips to taking the perfect picture!

No shopping!

Michael challenged me to a month of not going shopping. That seems almost impossible with my spending habits. Michael issued the challenge on June 20th. I have 10 more days to go. This is a difficult task since JcPenney is having Best Price July. Every week it seems there are more markdowns. I am making a list of items that I will for sure b purchasing if they are still there. With the engagement underway this no shopping bet has actually encouraged me to find ways to cut costs on the Big Day!!

Daniel H.S Graduation!!


     

Today my brother graduated from high school!! And I cant tell you how proud of him I am! I had this feeling of fulfillment and pride and joy all at once! I don't know how my parents were feeling but as the big sister I remember watching out for him as a kid and walking him to pre-school and telling them to watch him! He was my little bro and I was and always will be protective of him We are only two years apart but we are very close in our friendship! I love him so much and I cant wait to see where his dreams will take him. I know that he can do ANYTHING that he sets his mind to!!

Kitchen Requirements:

2. Red Bull Mini Fridge

This fridge is for Michael and his love for Red Bull. This would be a good novelty in the house.

Who Do You Think You Are

/One of my favorite shows is Who Do You Think You Are which airs on NBC  on Friday at 7/8. I managed to watch all of season 3 on Hulu this month.
If you want to learn more about this show go to http://www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are/!
So many celebrities go through this eye opening journey and it inspires me to look up my family's ancestral roots.
Many of the Caucasian Americans were able to go back several generations, Martin Sheen was able to go back 11 generations and Reba McIntyre went back 9 generations!! That's amazing!! But I wanna know how far back my family goes! My uncle Anthony has told me that I have Native American ancestors and I am so excited to learn more about the family's history!! I will keep ya posted blogsters!!

For this upcoming year as Social Chair of Delta Sigma Pi, a professional business fraternity, I plan on doing a Tie-Dye Event. I plan on having it where everyone brings in their own clothing and any other accessories that they want tie-dyed. This will be a great event to bring the chapter together. The main article of clothing that I want to tie-dye is a dress. I saw this idea on Pinterest and I plan on replicating the idea.
Hand-spray painted dress!

I think I will have to hand paint it at first and then throw paint on it!! I think that will be a lot of fun! Cant wait to do it!!
