Goin back to ma roots!

So as I said yesterday I went home this weekend, even though it was only for two days I had such a good time! It was so relaxing and I really missed my parents and my animals. I had not been home in over two months so it was almost weird coming back, it was familiar yet foreign. Plus I got to enjoy it with one of my good friends! We drank wine, watched grays, went thrifting, and had a fantastic Mexican dinner with family and friends.

                         (not the most flattering picture of the two of us, but I swear we are cute)

I love Mexican food. I mean LOVE. Unfortunately there are not too many Mexican places in Rochester, in upstate NY for that matter. My aunt and uncle's favorite place is Salena's. I had been there once before and liked it, but was not extremely impressed. This time though the whole place had a "tgif" clamor and it was just so inviting and warm compared to the dreary weather outside. I had a black bean burrito and a cheese enchilada...mole style, quite delicious. But what I was extremely impressed with, the guac. I don't know if you all know, but I have a little bit of an obsession with guacamole. :) All-in-all if you are looking for a good time and even better margarita and just happen to be in the ROC...Salena's is the place you want to be.

One of the other highlights of this trip was when I found these babies. They were $4...yes $4, from Goodwill. I have been looking for a pair of perfect oxfords and these are definitely them. :)

And lastly I forgot to tell you about my discovery of the legendary Rosebud Salve. How I did not try this before, seeing it is around 100 plus years old, anyway I love it. It is now never too far from my reach. :)

Well now I get to go work out some sketches for my magazine prepared to give me your input...I am going to need it.

te amo,


  1. Wow those shoes were a steal!
    So what exactly is the salve for? Is it kind of like paw paw ointment?

  2. Hi Harlow Darling!
    Thanks for commenting. I use the salve for hydrating my ever chapped lips, but it can be also used to soften cuticles and put on burns and things like that.


Tell me what you think.
