A bachelorette dinner in Havana, Cuba

Hey guys, in my last post, I promised to do a separate blog about the bachelorette dinner we hosted for my friend in Havana. Here goes...

Before we left North America for Cuba, I had suggested a day for us all to wear the same color and take photos. When I got to Havana, I casually scouted for a plain wall, and found a blue wall right behind our Air BnB in Centro Havana. Blue complements yellow (our color), so I was hella excited at the possible outcome of our photos. My friend who was getting married the following month was also on the trip, so the rest of us decided to throw her a surprise bachelorette dinner after the photo shoot.

When it was time to take the photos, an outburst of heavy rain ensued. Boy was I disappointed. The rain did not look like it was stopping anytime soon, so we decided to utilize an indoor space--the stairwell of our AirBNB. When we were done inside, the rain suddenly stopped, and we dashed outside for our shoot. We took a few photos on an outdoor stairs, and as we were fixing to change positions to another wall, the rain started again, and at this point we called it quits😪.

The photos were not exactly what I was hoping for, but sometimes you just roll with the punches and keep it moving. I am sure COVID-19 has taught us this too well.

The bachelorette dinner on the other hand was perfect. The bride-to-be was utterly surprised, as she had no clue. The restaurant staff at Elizalde were amazing. They let us rent out a space for free, got us a cake at a moments notice, and George, the host even serenaded the bride-to-be with a Boyz II Men song.
 In all it was an amazing time. 

Enjoy the photos .

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?
