This holiday season has been full of joyous gatherings, inspiring charitable acts and of course holiday traditions. It has been one of the toughest to get through with out having my father. I remind myself of all the wonderful memories I did get to share with him, even if it is through tear filled eyes.
Some of my favorite holiday traditions is the baking I get to do with my son Frankie. I know that my blog is all about fashion and Art but… you gotta throw a little bit of sweets in there!! My Grandmother, VaVa Maria ( Avo, is the correct word in Portuguese for grandmother) used to say “Here’s a little something sweet to KEEP you sweet!” and then she would hand me a chocolate bar.
Decorating packages is another tradition that brings so much joy to others. This cardinal package is in remembrance of my dad David! ( insert dagger to my heart…) Grateful…thankful….humbled!
Now that I have wiped the tears…..Lets get back to some fashion inspo!!!
Remember to have fun with what you wear and wear what makes it fun!!! If you smile when you put it on…WEAR it!!!! Frankie got creative with his home depot sunglasses that to me are mistakable for Gucci’s!!! (I had to try them on myself)
Be the light in the room this holiday season with a smile that will help others dream big! Find the small things throughout your day to make it great. Maybe its your glitter covered heels or your favorite stuffed santa that you cherish now as much as you did when you were 12! Wear colors that bring memories of happiness like ribbon candy from santa all covered with green and pink swirls.
I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holidays and a New years not to be forgotten. May everyone be content in their hearts and a wish filled year!
Enjoy creating new memories even if they are filled with the hustle and bustle of the holidays!

So sweet! I couldn’t get my son to bake cookies with me this year. I was heartbroken!
There is always next year
I love Presents, but wrapping them up is so not my cup of tea!! Also how beautifully you write! Love it
Thank you for you support
I can see now your scarf says New York, lol. I misread things all the time. I love to decorate packages too. However, I’m all about hot glue. I couldn’t draw to save my life. I love the cardinal. It was beautiful. My dd draws and loves art. I hope you have an amazing holiday!
Love hot glueing..heehee my fingers dont though…merry christmas!!!
