Well at least it is still April lol it has been how many weeks again since Easter? And now is when I am doing the outfit post. If you only knew what I have been going through, some of you who follow me on twitter and are fans on the Facbook page may know already that I have been laid of and my laptop's hard drive died on me. I am still thanking God daily for all that I have and all that I don't. I shall have a laptop soon enough.
My Easter was wonderful spent amongst beloved friends and family. I attended the morning church service which was as amazing and as powerful as Good Friday's service. Then headed over to my parents home for Easter dinner.
Bueno, por lo menos todavía estamos en el mes de abril lol , han pasado cuántas semanas desde la Pascua? Y ahora es cuando estoy escribiendo la entrado. Si supieras lo que he estado pasando, algunos de ustedes que me siguen en twitter y son fans en la página de Facebook saben ya que estoy sin empleo y el disco duro de mi laptop se me murió. Aun estoy dando le las gracias a Dios todos los días por todo lo que tengo y todo lo que no tengo. Tendre una laptop muy pronto.
Mi Pascua fue maravillosa entre amigos y familiares queridos. Asistí a el servicio de la mañana, que era tan increíble y tan poderoso como el servicio del Viernes Santo. Luego se dirigieron a casa de mis padres para la cena de Pascua.
On to the oufit!! If you remember the Fashion and Faith: Easter Outfit Ideas post I gave a visual of the outfit I planned on wearing on Easter Sunday. The look turned out exactly as I had envisioned it! I could not have been happier! I looked all over the mall for a navy blazer, I found one at Forever 21 I was not happy with the shade or quality of the fabric so I ended up borrowing my sister's thrifted Jones New York balzer, it definitely fit the bill, pairing up perfectly with my American Rag chiffon dress that I snagged on clearance at Macy's. My shoes wear steal at Charlotte Russe you can read all about the buy here. My New Charloette Russe Pumps
I did my very first twist out post big chop on on my natural hair I loved the results as did many of my friends and family. My hair is growing slowly but surely. I cannot wait until my twist outs look like this again.
Ahora sobre el oufit! Si te acuerdas de la entrada Fashion and Faith: Easter Outfit Ideas di un visual de la ropa que pensaba usar el Domingo de Pascua. El look se vio tal como lo había imaginado! Yo no podría haber sido más feliz! Busqué por todo el centro comercial por un blazer azul marino, me encontré con uno en Forever 21, no estaba contenta con el color o la calidad de la tela así que terminé tomando prestado el de mi hermana. Uno thrifted de la marca Jones New York, que sin duda le quedo perfecto, y combino tal como queria con mi vestido de la marca American Rag. El cual consegui en la tienda de Macy's. Mis zapatos los compre en oferta de la tienda Charlotte Russe, pueden leer todo acerca de la compra aquí My New Charloette Russe Pumps.
Hice mi primer "twist out" en mi cabello despues del "big chop" me encantó el resultado al igual que muchos de mis amistades y familiares. Mi cabello está creciendo lento pero seguramente. No puedo esperar hasta que mis "twist outs" se vean asi de nuevo .

I had the opportunity to attend Emiliani's "Day of the Hairdresser" show, which made its epic debut this weekend at The Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. The two-day event lived up to all of its hype and exceeded expectations as one of the most innovative displays of talent in the industry. There was no shortage of amazing moments, stellar creativity and awe-inspiring talent.

The two-day extravaganza kicked off with an exclusive VIP party where famed celebrity hairdressers such as Robert Cromeans, Nicholas French, Phillip Wilson, Amit Abraham, Gina Khan, Patrick McIvor, Joseph DiMaggio, Jo Blackwell, Michael O'Rourke, Boyd Parris, Rafe Hardy, Tim Hartley, Leonel Rodriguez and Rocco Vitelli arrived ready to party along with their admiring fans.
The vivacity of the stylists fed the crowd's appetites for glamour, drama and ingenuity - concepts essential to this eclectic craft. Andre Chiavelli, Executive Vice President of Corporate Strategy at Emiliani Enterprises, gave a riveting speech during the opening acts of the grand event on Monday driving home the adage of "giving credit where credit is due."
Fashion has dominated the runway as the only star of the show for too long, for with out the throngs of beauty teams backstage and behind the scenes, the images of perfectly polished models and celebrities would be non-existent. The talents of the fashion and beauty world should work hand in hand to create the most exceptional results. All of the characteristics of iconic clothing - sharp lines, vivid colors and unforgettable silhouettes - are paramount in beauty as well. Our hair is a direct expression of our personalities and can be a manifestation of our wildest dreams.
Thousands of people turned out to see the show the hair industry has been anticipating for months. "The Day of the Hairdresser" featured avant-garde and high fashion looks; the energy from the crowd was electric as each artist created their own dream world on the runway. Case in point: Phillip Wilson cut a models' hair while she hung upside down from cloths in a Cirque-du-Solei style performance.
This show marked the start of a hair revolution. The beauty industry thus far was always an after thought compared to the fashion industry, but that ended with "The 4th Dimension." The success of this show has inspired the hair industry to continue on its path of recognition. Be on the lookout for Emiliani to take Fashion Week by storm in the Fall.

I know, I know I am about a week late with this post, But in any event here are a few outfit ideas for your Easter look regardless of how you observe
the holiday or where you are going, one of these looks is sure to fit the bill.
If you know me then you know that I love Easter. Why? Because I grew up with the understanding that we are reconciled by His death and we are saved by His life. What better reason than the Lord to get all dressed up and look beautiful than this day, I think it is a super special celebration. For those who do not know how I feel about finding the perfect Easter outfit you can get an idea by reading last years Easter post.
For this year's Easter outfit I have in mind to wear a lilac chiffon dress from American Rag, I snagged it on clearance at Macy's. I plan on wearing an open navy blue blazer over it with the sleeves cuffed. To add my sense of style and flair I'll add a leopard skinny belt, floral print shoes and of course accessories to boot.
Below is a visual of what my outfit is going to look like.
Ya sé, ya sé que estoy casi una semana retrasada con esta entrada, pero en cual quier caso, aquí están algunas ideas para su look de Pascua. A pasar de cómo vayas a observar el dia o a dónde vayas para celebrar, unos de estos atuendos estaran mas que bien para la ocasion.
Si me conoces ya sabes que me encanta la Pascua. ¿Por qué? Porque yo crecí con el entendimiento de que somos reconciliados por Su muerte y somos salvos por Su vida. ¿Qué mejor razón que el Señor para vestir se y lucir bella que este dia, creo que es una celebracion súper especial. Para aquellos que no saben cómo me siento acerca de encontrar el atuendo perfecto para el dia de Pascua pueden leer la entrada sobre mi atuendo del año pasado aqui.
Este año tengo en mente usar un vestido de gasa color lila de la marca American Rag, lo consgui en oferta en Macy's. Mi plan es llevar una chaqueta abierta color azul marino sobre él, con las mangas esposadas. Para añadir mi sentido de lestilo le voy a añadir un cinturon delgado con estampado de leopardo, zapatos de estampado de flores y accesorios, por supuesto.
A continuación les muestro una representación visual de como mi atuendo se vera.

In 1995, Selena was the most popular Tejano recording star in the world, and she was looking forward to a future that seemed like a dream. After years of traveling the country in a bus, struggling to make a name for her, Selena had finally found success: a number one single, a Grammy Award, an upcoming English language album and, most importantly, a husband that she loved and was looking forward to building a life, and a family, with. But in a flash, it was all taken away. After her shocking murder, husband Chris Pérez was left to pick up the pieces of his life and find a way to move forward. Now, for the first time, Pérez tells his story in the intimate and moving book.
“Lots of people asked me to write our story after Selena passed. I always said no. My feelings were too private... I was too busy desperately trying to wall off that part of my life completely...I have begun to realize that, by burying everything, I've actually been living my life with blinders on, just putting one foot in front of the other without really moving forward at all...Selena loved as hard as she lived. We loved her in return – her family, her friends, her fans, and me, her husband, who felt like the luckiest man alive every time Selena said my name. This book is for her."
– Chris Perez, from “TO SELENA, WITH LOVE”
From joining Selena’s band and realizing he was falling in love with her, to hiding their relationship and finally confessing to her family, getting married and buying a house, and planning their future family, Pérez details their ups and downs truthfully, meaningfully, and movingly. And his honesty is never more devastating then in his description of the black hole of depression he fell into after Selena’s death. “TO SELENA, WITH LOVE” is the never-before-told story of the man who loved a superstar, his wife, and had to cope with losing her at the hands of a brutal murderer who was once considered a friend.

My sister, Natalia is going to flip when she sees that I used her latest nail art invention for my Manicure Monday post. That's what sisters are for though, right? To lend a hand pun intended lol!
She sent this over to me yesterday via text, looks like the night before she had been fooling around with some ideas and polish or saw a similar mani on Pinterest and this is what she came up with.
I love it and think it is very cute and in season. The bright pink falls right into the neon trend. By using the gray base she has also created some color
blocking as well.
Mi hermana, Natalia se va a morir cuando vea que he utilizado su última invención de arte de uñas para mi entrada de Manicure Monday. Pero para eso es que son las hermanas, ¿verdad? Para darle la mano a uno lol!
Ella m envió esto a ayer a través de texto, parece que la noche anterior había estado jugando con algunas ideas y esmarte o vio algun mani en Pinterest y esto es lo que le ocurrió.
Me encanta y creo que es muy lindo y husto para la temporada. El color rosa brillante cae a la derecha en la tendencia de neón. Y el uso de la base gris también ha creado un poco de color blocking.
This post is so late it is almost sad lol, but I am trying to play catch up so here we go...
