not that it is my birthday today, but I recently found a memory card I had lost, so I recuperated lots of images and they included these from april. I am so glad I found them. it was one of the first times I was trying out the canon 6d with the 50 mm lens. I’m in love! I didn’t even edit these photos since I got so excited finding them.

Nothing like family + pancakes for a good day! 

I know it looks like such a typical American breakfast, but I’m Mexican, so we don’t usually have that. If I’m gonna get spoiled like that, mind as well be for my birthday, right?

anyway friends, I hope you’re having a really good day!

p.s: I’m so hungry and those photos are making it worse!

p.s.s: I loved capturing my family in such a candid and warm way. such a shame my sisters were at school and couldn’t join us. 

p.s.s.s: (<- one too many?) but I’m about to get two new cameras on the mail for my collection! so exciting!!

a happy list, by esteban

last time i shared a list of things that made me happy since i felt kind of down. i asked my friends and you guys if anyone would be interested in sharing things that make them happy.

my friend esteban has been really close to me since high school. he is a science, book, movie, and music enthusiast, and shares all of those things + his art in his instagram. today he is sharing with us 10 things that make him happy. enjoy!

10 things that make esteban happy:

  1. my girlfriend. she makes me smile a lot. she sees me for who i am: really weird, and strange, and full of crazy ideas. and, surprisingly, that doesn’t scare her or push her away.
  2. my family. they’re very funny. they make me laugh everyday. and we always talk about alien life forms–more than jesus probably (sorry, mom!).
  3. i like books. and tea. i love reading with iced tea. i love that books take me to places i cannot go.
  4. i like reading with my girlfriend. and she drinks tea while reading, as well.
  5. my favorite couple in the world: my friends david and diana. we’ve been friends since high school, and i know they’ll always be there for me. david is a badass musician and a badass nerd. and diana is the best friend you could ever have. every time we meet we go for burgers or pizza from peter pipers or wings.
  6. watching movies by myself. if i watch movies with people, i then watch them on my own.
  7. food makes me really happy.
  8. I’m happy that I don’t give a sh*t what people think about me.
  9. listening to albums. i’m not a one song kind of person. if i invest in music, i listen to the whole thing the artist created. it’s like buying a book and only reading a few chapters. like picking a chapter in the middle and reading that. i judge music by looking at the complete piece.
  10. i like to spend time on my own. and think about points one through nine.

yes, we know mcdonald’s is the worst thing you can do for your body.

and yes, we know there are tastier things out there for the same price.

but honestly, we were really craving a quarter pounder..

don’t judge.

so we went and got one after my little sister’s dance recital,

right after picking up this cute guinea pig, amy.

she’s the last piggy i’m rescuing. i love, love, love waking up every day to healthy and happy adopted piggies, but i already have my hands full.

it kinda makes me sad, cuz part of me (the animal lover) wants to go out there and rescue every guinea pig in need of a home, but the other part of me (the reasonable part) is like stop, you can’t anymore.

oh well.

i’m grateful for the ones i have and that i am able to sustain them.

i’m also grateful for runs to random restaurants with my boyfriend to satisfy our cravings.

did i mention i love him? i do.

this one and another one of my recent posts included burgers. oops. can you tell i love them too?

how is your weekend so far, friends? :)

btw: i changed my blog’s layout, what you do think? i’m really liking it!

a happy list

one of my favorite bloggers, Love Taza, used to do these type of posts all the time in her blog. I really liked reading them, so I wanted to do one for myself today since I feel I kinda need it.

10 things that make me happy:

  • my guinea pigs. 
  • having green hair. 
  • being blessed enough to have a family and a man who love me very much. 
  • seeing old men getting together in mcdonalds to drink a coffee. 
  • when people talk about things they are passionate about. 
  • that feeling after waking up from an afternoon nap.
  • living in a world with delicious food. 
  • reading blogs. 
  • waking up next to david. 
  • when my dogs snore. 


what are 10 things that make you happy? it can be anything! 

send me an email with 10 things that make you happy and I will share them on my blog! 

for love and napo (at) out look (dot) com <– just put everything together

until next time! :)

a silly wish list.

i honestly just have a couple of bucks under my name, if anything, at the moment. hence this post. a post about cool things i’ve seen around the web that i honestly don’t have a need for (or money for), but would be cool to own. why does it always happen that anytime i find something neat i am out of money? ugh. a girl can dream, right?

anyway, here’s my current silly wish list accompanied by cute illustrations/photos:

jeffree star’s velour liquid lipsticks + others

but they’re always sold out..

anything by lomography

i love the surprise of not knowing how your photo will turn out until you develop it. i also really love the effects plastic cameras give your images; light leaks and vignetters take my heart. even if some people don’t like them.

headphones

because my guinea pig ate my last ones and i really miss them… damn you little robyn! (who i can’t stay mad at)

glasses

ok, these i do need. my current ones are broken and scratched. but i always hear stories of people spending upwards of $700 on glasses + exams and it scares me..

an automatic ball launcher for my dog

kind of silly (but then again, this is a silly wish list) because my golden retriever probably gets bored in our backyard and deserves it for being awesome..

paper shoot

a camera made out of paper. simple!

buuut, i know myself. once i get paid, that money will be spent on my guinea pigs, ha! oh well, i’d rather see them happy and well fed than me with yet another camera that i just want for my collection or more lipsticks that i’ll probably use just once.

what things are on your silly wish list at the moment? things that you want just for the fun of? let me know!

have a very nice day :)

p.s: creators (those that i found) of the illustrations are tagged on them.
