If it wasn’t for my #BFF I don’t know where I’d be today let alone in the next few years. With this on my mind and in thinking about the perfect gift for her I’ve scoured the interwebs to find some inspiration ideas for a friendship bracelet I intend to make. Initially, I didn’t expect to find anything too fabulous but I was dead wrong. Flare Magazine’s “ALANA ZIMMER BY MAX ABADIAN FOR FLARE JUNE 2010” was a fashion lovers dream to discover on Earth Day 2017 and it led me to other sweet discoveries via Etsy. Lets’ just say all the images above now have me wondering if Friendship Bracelet style is forever like my #BFF? I think so!
It’s been a busy week of back and forth about one thing: should fiesta by Moni continue on WordPress or move to another platform. This should be an easy thing to decide but I’m now at whits end and thinking that if I just share what I’m going through then maybe somewhere out there in the blog universe my answer will be given to me. So here we go. Read More
Woke up this morning and made a few inspiration images and self encouragement pics via Canva for me to stare at all day long and then I thought to myself, “Why don’t I share this via fiesta?!” Sometimes I forget that the purpose of my blog is open and real about anything. So, maybe you’ll relate to my dry shampoo secret not-so-much secret or my mental “I’ve got this!” motto that I repeat to myself at least 8 times a day. These routines of mine bring me comfort in knowing that all it takes is just a little self love to get me through the day, especially Fridays.
So in love with pastels not just because it’s spring but because they’re borderline intoxicating.

I first met Samantha Hahn while working for DailyCandy.com, one of the first women’s fashion e-newsletters to take our now old school inboxes by storm. Fast forward 7 years and I’m still in awe of her work illustrations which range from fashion to beauty, everyday and recently, motherhood. The realness of her eye via watercolor is unreal and all together swoon worthy. You can’t help but feel giddy while waiting to see her runway illos pop up during any fashion week hashtags or social media feeds because you know she will set the record straight about what is authentic. I sometimes wonder what she is thinking when she’s pressed to capture silhouettes of fast moving models. Not that skirt, too puffy. Yes, that pant is lit! A few of my favorites from her recent fashion show works are above and if I had to choose just one, I’d have the Suno shoe blown up wall size to pin right next to my closet. PS. Take a peek at her website below and you will find a world full of inspiration and beauty. Promise.

Thankfully WordPress has customizable themes to publish content and with them comes all sorts of goodies packaged: fonts, colors, layout, etc. While I like my current theme, I still wanted to personally work on my brand identity, specifically the Avitar that would pop up next to my URL. So, what do you think of my new fiesta logo below? My thought is to roll out different color variations of fiesta seasons change. As I can a better perspective as to what this blog means to me, I’m excited to witness my creativity unfold organically and transpire into a finished product.
