What I have been up to lately

What have I been up to lately?  Not blogging much, but I promise I have some very good excuses such as...

Having the honor of being a UMDNJ 2011 Latino Heritage Foundation scholarship recipient.  

Celebrating our last final.

January 18, 1920-December 7, 2011
Loosing my wonderful grandmother.  She lived a long 91 years. The kindest, most calm and loving person I have ever known.  Te quiero Baba.

 Graduating! This is me at my pinning ceremony. Finally this program is over and i've earned my BSN! 

So, as you can see it has been an overwhelming few months. 2012 goal is to blog more often so stay tuned.

Somewhere in Manhattan

Hi! Happy Fall! Here are some pics from a few weeks ago. We celebrated Charles' cousin's birthday in NYC.  I took some pics from the car on West side highway.  I love the blurry lights.

I'm wearing h&m as usual with target gladiator wedges. Nice change from my usual nursing white coat I have to wear.  :-)

I want to start doing street style pics for the blog so that's my new goal.  Let's see how random strangers react to me asking to take their pic for the blog. Is that creepy? Have a nice week.

It's still summer

Hola! I know many people think it's fall, but i'm holding on to summer as long as possible.  Rocking a bright pink maxi should be allowed all year round according to me.  Oh and this gold necklace is my new favorite piece that goes with everything. Happy hump day!

West Village, New York, NY

This was a pic my mom took of me last week.  I met up with my mom and sister for dinner at Red Bamboo on West 4th St. Great vegan soul food...I ordered the Creole chick'n.  I have been wearing this cargo vest a lot lately. I just seem to throw it on any outfit and it works. Have a good week!  :-)

Copy Cat


I found this lovely photo while browsing The Sartorialist.  This woman's name is Alessandra from Italy I believe.  I just loved her look so I recreated it.  How do you like my version?  Would have been a lot cooler if I had tats on my arms.

What do you think of the larger pics in this post? yay or nay?

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend. Get some last minute BBQ in.

Waiting for the Train to West 13th St., New York, NY

This is from the same day as the last post.  I just found these pics that I forgot all about. I just wanted to share.  Tootles!

West 13th St., New York, NY

Hi All,

I know it's been almost an entire season since i've posted.  There is good reason for that.  I am happy to report that I have made it through the most difficult part of nursing school, and I will be starting my last semester in a few days.  YAYY!  These pics are from last week when C and I met up with my sis in the meatpacking district.  We went to Fig and Olive, where they have yummy free appetizers(vegetarian friendly) when you buy a drink during happy hour.  Before getting drinks, we stopped in a nearby store which was decorated with tons of vintage singer sewing machines.  My mom used to have one just like this when I was growing up.  I had to get a few pics.  Aren't they fabulous?!

I didn't feel like carrying my camera to the city so C took all these photos with the camera on his phone.  The first two pics I didn't even know about (and those are my favorites of the day).

In love with my H&M jumpsuit and clutch. I felt so pretty and comfortable in this outfit. I'm sure you will see it again soon.

We have no water as aftermath of Irene, but I consider us lucky compared to some.  Hope you and your loved ones are all safe and sound.

Pink Party

C and I went to a Pink & Green party in honor of welcoming spring!  We both wore pink because that's what we found in our closets. Fun fun!  TGIF! Have a wonderful weekend homies!

Jo: F21 top, American eagle boyfit jeans, h&m wedges.

Visiting Grandparents

We rented a bug!

I've always liked this wallpaper in the bathroom.

Little me with 'The Little Engine That Could.'

Scott, me and Grandpa

A few weeks ago my mom and I took a trip to Connecticut to visit my grandparents.  It was a short and sweet trip.  I love going to their house because it never changes(and it's straight out of the 70's).  I have lots of good memories there.

I was wearing Danskin leggings from childhood, H&M cape, and Bakers OTK boots.

Happy Hour

The other day I went to get a mani and pedi since it's the first day warm enough to bust out the open-toe shoes.  We went to our fav Mexican spot for Margaritas and chips and salsa during happy hour.  Hope everyone is having a great week.  Charles hates all the buzz about the royal wedding.  I don't really care about the wedding either but I want to see Kate's dress and I jump at the chance to act British anytime. Tea anyone?

Jo: Target maxi dress and cardigan, Zara bag, vintage belt.
C: hmm..not sure. I'll ask him and get back to you. lol

We're Back

Hey, after a month or so we are finally making a return to blogging.  It was a pleasantly sunny day today so we went for a nice long walk.  Happy spring!

Jo: H& M dress and blazer, vintage belt, random gold flats i've had for at least 10 years
CP: H&M shirt, Old Navy jacket and jeans, Sperry boat shoes

Fedoras and Glasses

Today we went to The West End restaurant in the city.  It is actually called Havana Central now, but The West End is it's original name.  It is a special place because it's where my parents met 40 years ago this month!  I loved seeing where they met and the neighborhood they lived in. 

I can hardly walk because of a killer workout a few days ago, but it was still a great day.

I added the pic of Tom's's the one from Sienfield! It was across the street from where we were.

My brother and Charles had on some really cool glasses.  My dad and I opted for fedoras to go with the Cuban theme.

Me: Aritzia(my new favorite store) hat, old H&M bomber jacket, old F21 jeans, target leopard flats.
