Today I found a picture in my phone that my daughter took of my son that made me realized just how grown my baby has become. He’s 13 years old and will be a freshman in High School this September. HIGH SCHOOL! I know its only January but I’m already freaking out! My son was diagnosed with Autism when he was 5 years old and finding him the best school has always been an issue for us. I’m deep in the search of finding him a High School that can challenge him academically while providing him with the related services and support he needs. Living in New York City, we surrounded by so many choices in schools but at times it can be overwhelming. I’ll be out on school tours and applying to as much schools possible. My husband and I are anxious for our boy but at the same time we have to be confident in that he’ll be ok. For the parents reading this, you already know how hard this job is. When they’re newborns, it’s easy to think they’ll fit in your arms forever. But time can be cruel and smack you in the face. My son is 13 and my daughter is 10. I want to be selfish; I want keep them in my arms forever. But I can’t. I have to let go a little and have faith in them. My son will be ok. He’s going to High School and I’m excited about this new chapter in his life.
Have any of you been down this road before? If so, please comment with some advice. I’m all open!

Every year I get together with my closest friends and we share our new year resolutions together. When we started doing this we were in our early 20’s and our goals back then were about moving up in our careers, relationship related, and socializing. Twenty years later and I realized that I don’t add fun activities to my list of goals. So this year, I plan on changing that. I will like to challenge myself by getting uncomfortable and doing things I would never do but are fun. For example, I hate amusement parks. HATE! So I just booked a trip to Disney World…the happiest place on earth. It’s only January so I have 11 more months to come up with ways to fulfill my resolution. Life is short and its important to live it to the fullest. I’m looking forward to 2018 and all the different ways I’ll celebrate it. If you have any suggestions for me please comment on this post please.

Nothing beats the feeling you get when you step off the plane in Dominican Republic and get a good whiff of the smell in the air! I probably book my trips to return just for the smell of the island.
Who said office attire has to be boring? I love this outfit for its simplicity and for its multi purposeful-ness. Throw a blazer over it, and its office ready. Wear your favorite straw hat and you’re ready to Sunday brunch. I’m 5’2, which means, I’m short! I have been looking for crop pants that actually
I have been wearing the same leather jacket for over ten years, until NOW! I fell in love with this jacket as soon as I saw it. Everyone owns a motorcycle jacket of some sort so it’s hard to tell them all apart. What makes this one so different? It’s not leather! It’s vegan. Vegan leather is a leather substitute fabric that contains no animal products.
Spring fever has kicked in and I’m loving Spring fashion this year. The weather in NYC is perfect, where is not too hot and its not too cold. I took advantage of this with this playful skirt from Zara where it’s also a pair of shorts. SKORTS.
As a New Yorker, gravitating towards a black and white outfit comes so natural to me. This time, I thought I would add a bit of flair with a pair of fabulous pumps with feather appliques. I got lucky walking into a J.Crew store when I found these shoes. They were retailed for about $300 but I walked out of the store with them paying under $100! I’m a big bargain
This week I went shopping in my own closet and discovered a scarf I purchased around 15 years ago. I love buying classic key pieces that are timeless and can fall into any trend season after season. Paired with a vintage
“How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents” came to me when I was a young woman eager to get my hands on any book written by Latinas. At this time, I was reading the works of Sandra Cisneros, Isabel Allende, Esmeralda Santiago, Cristina García, and
Walking through the tunnel of the the 191st and Broadway is like a 1980’s flashback of when NYC was flooded with graffiti art. Early in 2015, the MTA commissioned 5 local artist to
