The Ballet Chronicles: Dream Wardrobe

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

To make it short: I have been dancing on and off ever since I was two, but starting July 2013, I settled down at  My Place Studio, in El Salvador. It's definitely small, but the teacher is amazing and I will never forget all the friends there.  However- with the move to Monterrey, I will have to start fresh and find a new studio. The Ballet Chronicles will be a small section of this blog to document that journey!

With that said, here's my dream ballet wardrobe. Tutus and tulle, oh my.

Successfully Throwing a QuinceaƱera (or two)

Saturday, April 26, 2014
    This Tuesday was my birthday. I turned fifteen- which, in this country, is a pretty big deal. To celebrate, we had brunch at Basilea, the most darling restaurant ever (I might be a tad bit biased since we basically grew up there). It was full of friends and fun- not to mention delicious food like the best carrot cake ever and quiche- and I could not ask for anything better. My grandmother was in charge of setting up the decorations, and I provided the inspiration. 

Potted flowers as centerpieces = no dying plants after a week. 
I have a thing for restaurant signs. The typography is too cute to pass up.
As party favors, we dressed up little succulents- our way of celebrating the Earth!

Flowers, flowers everywhere.

the place settings. vintage fiestaware, favors, and simple white cloth.

Succulents as party favors. Also, my cursive handwriting.
The other window. It was dark outside, but there was enough light for nice pictures. 
favors. again. this one's for instagram. 

good drinks and even greater friends (I'm the one on the bottom left).

And, as a bonus: 

Pictures from the taco night! We had a small celebration with the family that included our own DIY tassel garlands and a lovely donut birthday cake.

An Introduction.

Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Well hello there. I see you have found my little corner of the internet. Now that we have been formally introduced, let's get down to business, yeah?

I am a creative, and adore anything bright, colorful, and happy. Here you'll find posts that range anywhere from playlists to tips about school (hello, high school freshman/incoming sophomore here!). Good design and writing make me happy. My style is best described as quirky, a mish-mash of everything. As a result, this blog will fall into the "lifestyle" category.

just add san cisco in the background, a cup of cold tea, and a pom pom garland to see my creative process. 

Don't be afraid to drop by and say hello in the comments! Any tips or requests are greatly appreciated!
