Mangos for you, mangos for me!

And SNL's Mango is who I think about whenever I talk about my own mango tree! I mean they are falling everywhere from my trees! What am I to do? I guess I must show them off to you!

I had already posted my Mango Chicken recipe [here], but I think these are some more recipes I will be testing out before mango season is over. And after mangos are done...we get avocados! So get ready to see these babies here too!

Happy Pinteresting lovelies!

Fusion of the day: Korean/Peruvian/Cuban

So the other day I decided that it would be a great idea to just have  a wine, fruit, and cheese type of dinner. I mean, why not? You have your fruits, dairy, and your calcium! Healthy, right?!?

Yet, something told me it may not have been the best choice, but whatever. I needed to "wine" down. I was starting to get super anxious for my trip! Yipeeee!

The next day, my foodie friends saved me and decided I needed a sensible dinner. The stashed hubby and I in their car and drove us to a land not too far away, yet once we arrived to FINKA, it appeared that we had just traveled over 30 minutes to the "chic" area of Miami. "FINKA" is a deliciously amicable friendship between Peruvian/Korean/Cuban cuisine. I may be a little biased in regards to Peruvian being the tastiest cuisine, but really, the fusion, mesh, intro, presentation was to die for!

Early in the night, I asked the bartender to make me a "Chilcano" a refreshing mix of Pisco, lime juice, and ginger ale. So tasty!

Anyhow, here some of the dishes we had for dinner. And like all great foodies, we order plates to share! Everyone has to taste everyone's food! So dig in and see!

We were extremely pleased with the food and the prices! Yet, we felt a bit shafted since they did not take reservations on a Thursday night and we had a 50minute wait. Although the music was great and jamming, the volume could have been a bit lower. We were yelling at each other while seating a few inches across from each other at a table! But even with these comments, I would still come back here in a flash!

What would you do?!?!

Music Monday

Yes, I know, I am late. It is now Tuesday in my timezone as I am late by 45 minutes or so.
But who cares! Music is what makes the world go 'round anyway!

And this little Canadian chick makes all my 80s dancing dreams come true. Kiesza is like that piece of candy you found in your pocket after you thought you had finished all of your Halloween goodies. So sweet!

Baby Noah's Newborn Session

As you all know, I am a new tia! My sister had a beautiful baby boy named Noah and he probably has a modeling shoot every day! And if you have a baby (or fur baby), you know that you love filling your FB feed with countless pictures of your bundle(s) of joy.

Well, little sister is no different. To add, I was the one putting pics of my nephew up all over the place. I just love to stare at him, carry him, and I am just ready to spoil him rotten. I wanted to show you some of the newborn pics of Noah that I've taken with my SLR so here are a "few" pics of baby Noah. 

I didn't think it would be this hard to take newborn pictures!! It took me 3 days to get some good pictures with all of the outfits that my sister had gotten for him. He didn't want to cooperate, was fussy, and stayed awake for the most part.

Oh, and by the way, he is always frowning. Doesn't he have a "Come at me bro!" or "Why you mad bro?!" look?

On the plus side, I think I will be taking my hobby more seriously! I need to either take classes, or practice, practice, practice!!

Playing with colors

I recently decided to get a new 'do and play with some colors. And why not? I don't work during the summer and I won't have any parents looking at me weird for having crazy hair. I haven't colored my hair in over a decade, so I figured, it's time to try something new. And so I went a little wild and followed these pins for inspiration.

I really wanted to go for blue streaks, rather than purple, but I couldn't really find any blue streaks on Pinterest for me to show my stylist. She finally told me, that the blue would end up fading into green and she suggested to go for purple instead. Despite her suggestion, I still pushed blue streaks for my hair. Therefore, we compromised and she added both fashion colors to the blonde streaks she had to create on my hair in order to strip it of color.

She and I couldn't be any more happy with the results as she even took me outside to take pics to add to her Instagram!

And below, are my selfies. It's hard to appear inconspicuous when the neighborhood gardeners keep driving by.

Alhough I probably should've listened to her because two weeks later, my blue streaks are now beginning to fade into green. C'est la vie!
I totally love my new 'do and can't wait to wear it out and long as its not hot, humid, nor raining. Then the color will bleed, I will begin to sweat, and the locks will turn into poof balls. 

Have you tried anything new lately?
