Out : : Basketball IS Back!

Last week I attended the Hornets FIRST game of the season with a couple of friends... 
My good friend Ann invited me to go with her and since I had never gone to a game before... I said yes!

Of course, what I didn't know is that the tickets were in a "Suite Box". Which freaking rocked!!! 

We went in through a special entrance to our own room, free drinks and food, our own bathroom, a bunch of TVs to watch the game... if you didn't want to watch it from the private balcony! We even had our own liquor cabinet! I felt like a true V-I-P. It's nice to feel every once in a while like one... Wouldn't you agree?


Sorry for the pictures looking kinda empty... I was WAY to excited when I got there that I forgot to take pictures and started to towards the end... haha! Hope you guys are doing well, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting :) 

Are you guys ready for the New Year??? I know I am!! 
What are your plans? Anything Special??

*Feliz Navidad*




 

Merry Christmas Everyone! 
As I write this I am still in my pajamas from last night since my family and I did not go to bed til around 4am!! 
Last night for us was "Noche Buena" which usually consists of a DELICIOUS meal, mass at midnight and then opening of the presents!!! 
Don't you just love traditions?  What kind of traditions do you have in your family??

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends :D

A Bag With A Purpose

Street Car
New Orleans Scene
Our infamous Fleur-De-Lis
Jackson Square

First and foremost I wanted to apologize for not posting anything for a couple of weeks!! I have been super busy with work, family and getting ready for the HOLIDAYS!! 
In this post I wanted to share with you guys a project that my good friend Jodie has going on right now. As many as you might know... BP had an oil spill last year in the Gulf of Mexico which affected many people as well as wildlife. Well Jodie owning the Gaia Bag company, decided to help out! For every bag purchased 0.25 cents go to help restore our wildlife! In addition to that she created these wonderful "New Orleans" inspired designs on the bags. 
I am absolutely obsessing over these bags and I'm sad that I only own one. 
So if you are still looking for a Christmas present for someone and can't figure out what to give them... 
Why not give them one of these special bags? 
Not only you are giving a present, but you are also helping restore our wildlife! 
If you visit her website Gaia Bag you can also purchase a different bag whose proceeds go to Whole Planet Foundation.
Thanks guys for your support and hope you have a great HOLIDAY!

V V


P.S. If for some reason the bags are not online, just shoot me an email or comment on this post and I hook you up! 

Merry Christmas!!

New Year ~ New Haircut

Happy Monday Everyone :)



The New Year is coming and I'm getting real antsy about changing my look! Actually I've been thinking about changing my hair... I have never colored it before but I am considering the "ombre" look. I figured I need to spice things up. What do you think?
Good? Bad? Tacky?
Help!

Out : : Sucre

I spent this past Sunday enjoying the simple things in life with my friend Alfredo. We walked all around town and of course stopped at one of my favorite bakeries in NoLa!
The place is called Sucre and with good reason... 

It's SO yummy!!!
