VIVA CESAR!!!! VIVA DOLORES!!!! VIVA LA CAUSA!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CESAR CHAVEZ!!!!!!!!!!!! (1927-1993)


I HAD THE HONOR TO MEET HIM AS A YOUNG CHILD IN OXNARD, CA...WHERE I LIVED AND WHERE MY PARENTS WORKED IN THE STRAWBERRY FIELDS... I WAS SMALL AND DIDN'T UNDERSTAND MUCH, BUT I REMEMBER FEELING A SENCE OF PRIDE AND JUSTICE AS HE SPOKE AND HEARING THE CROWDS OF FARM WORKERS CHEER FOR HIM AND HIS COMRADE AND CO-FOUNDER OF THE UFW DOLORES HUERTA... 

MANY YEARS LATER I HAD THE HONOR AND PLEASURE TO MEET DOLORES HUERTA WHEN SHE SPOKE AT MY SCHOOL... CITY COLLEGE OF SAN FRANCISCO. I COULDN'T HELP BUT CRY AS SHE SPOKE... THE FELLING WAS INDESCRIBABLE  TO FINALLY MEET HER... SHE'S BEEN SOMEONE  WHOSE LIFE AND HARD WORK I HAVE ADMIRE AS LONG AS I COULD REMEMBER... JUST THINKING ABOUT IT MAKES ME PROUD TO BE LATINA AND TO HAVE GROWN UP WITH THE STRUGGLES WE DID AS LATINOS AND FARM WORKERS... THEIR LEGACY WILL LIVE ON FOREVER IN HISTORY AND IN OUR HEARTS... 
(DOLORES HUERTA AND ME)

QUE VIVA CESAR CHAVEZ Y DOLORES HUERTA!!!! QUE VIVA LA CAUSA!!!!

I'm a Cali Girl, and that means I rep Cali teams...My all time favorite basketball team is the L.A. Lakers... and now I'm really into the Golden State Warriors, might I add that my lover Baron Davis plays for the Warriors "I Love U Baron"!!! Anyways, if you go to the M&M's website you can create an M&M character... so I made a dope ass Lakers M&M Lady, and a Foxy Warriors M&M Lady!!! Cute Hu?

NAILS DID GLAM SHOTS!!!!!

NAILS DID X LA MAUSSY X MATTHEW REAMER

One of my new obsessions are the Nails Did T-Shirts...and thanx to Mr. Frames from Nails Did I'm looking mighty fly these days, he just sent me a bunch of their shirts and I'm soooo happy that I had to have a mini shoot to thank him. My roommate Matthew Reamer is an awesome photographer, and I'm always begging him to take some Glam shots of me and he finally did. With a little tweaking from me and Mista Frames the pics came out looking Hella Fresh...So Fresh, Fresh, Exciting!!!!! Thank you for helping me look Hella Cute Reamer and Mr. Frames!!!!
