Cherry Blossoms


04.14.2014: FOURever date <3

Hello, dolls!! 🙂 Is it weird that I am not completely happy about being back in Baltimore? I just had one of the best 3 days of my life this past “weekend”!! To round it all up, I spent an amazing day in New York ,and was able to cross off 2 things from my bucket list. Theeeen we had the loveliest 2 days in New Jersey, just like always! I wish it never had to end, but chores and work are waiting for us here in the big B so yeaaaah. For those of you who follows me on Instagram, you would have an idea of what is coming up…and AAAAH I can’t wait!!!!


My favorite season is spring. The weather is perfect — not too cold like winter and not too like summer. I also love it because everything is prettier, flowers start to bloom and trees are green and not scary looking anymore.

One of the things that people here in the US look forward to during spring is the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC. Lucky for me, we are only less than an hour away so yeaaaap…cherry blossoms every spring is such a sight to see!


This is going to be another lengthy post. Lately, I’ve been  only posting one entry per week, so to make up to you dear readers, I will add a little extra to each post 🙂

Travel. Food.Fashion



Washington DC: The Girl (03.11)

03.11.14: Picture Perfect Kind of Day

Hello, dolls!!! I am so ecstatic right now, April is just amazing to me. First and foremost, A and I are just 12 days away from celebrating our second year together and I just can’t sit here and hide my excitement cause I know it is going to be ah-mah-zing! Second, I am only a few months away from hugging my family again!!! I can’t wait to travel with them again and be crazy with the sibs again. Lastly, I just accomplished something for school yesterday!! It really is happening!! One of the things that I promised myself when I got into Culinary school is to study abroad — and I am finally a sheer month away from crossing that off my list! 🙂

Read my post about our awesome lunch in Duke’s Grocery here –


It’s been a while since my last outfit post. I mean, let’s face it friends, I am not too good at it. LOL

But yeah, I will tryyyyy my very best to make each post worthwhile.


If there is anything that I can’t give up from my closet, that would be this H&M jacket.



I remember it as my first splurge after being here for only a week 2 years ago. I just can’t help it, the soft pink color and the gold buttons (I have this thing about gold buttons).

03.11.2014: FOURever plus 1

Hello, dolls!! 🙂 Today has got to be my most laid back Sunday here in Baltimore. Weather was too beautiful that I wish A was off today so we could be out on the porch chilling. I find myself falling asleep on the couch several times today, I am pretty beat I must say. The past 6 weeks has been a roller coaster ride, and now things are slowing down a little.

Yesterday, I witnessed LOVE and COMMITMENT happen right before my eyes. The two people that A and I love were joined together by God in Holy Matrimony. I am so glad that A and I are a part of it. I am going to save all the cheesy details about them – us – and the wedding next time (with photos included!). But let me tell you upfront that it is such a blessing to be part of each other’s lives. I am dedicating this post to the people who made “us” possible for A and I.


Food is our common denominator.

First time we all hung out, first time we all drove an hour away from Cockeysville, and the reason why we are all in this State — food has always been there for the 4 of us.


Double Date in DC <3




I love how there are a lot of awesome restaurants in DC. It’s always a treat for A and I when we go.

10.08.12: Celebrating Mom’s Birthday
Something that transpired last week made me realize how eager I want to some things to just work out and make everything that I have been aspiring for happen in God’s time. Knowing that I have been missing a lot of joyful moment is really pulling me down in a sad pit. Missing my family’s birthdays is one thing, but not being there on that special someone’s birthday is a different story..knowing that we are just in the same place at the same time and the same same same..I don’t know. It just really devastates me. And I hope there is still another year for us to celebrate..but all is left uncertain until the end of the year..maybe.
Anywaysy, God has turned around everything and blessed me with a beautiful Monday off to celebrate two birthdays in a lovely place at an awesome event! If there’s one thing that my Mom and I likes to is to attend events that are related to shopping and food. So this was a perfect way for me to celebrate her birthday! 🙂

Monday off in Washington, DC! 🙂 

Got super excited when I saw these food trucks!!

Some of the foods that we tried:

Spicy Beef x Vegetable Curry Patty

Tastes better with the jalapeno salsa! 🙂

My brother Remo will go crazy about their cookies!!!!

Gooey goodness inside!!! These cookies were AMAZING!!!!

Lamb taco..YUM!

Had thai food) no photos..there were a lot of thai food stalls!! Most people seems to be crazy about their food these days…

It was a super duper cold day for me! Went to Barnes and Noble to warm up for a bit and then headed to H&M and F21 to go shopping! This is why I love DC. It’s like my mini New York, only that it’s not crowded 🙂
