my style: out for indian food feast!

I've been meaning to share more about my personal style here for ages! But I still need to buy a tripod and snap pictures before work! Anyways. Here is something a I wore for a night out for Indian food with my cousin and my BF. I really felt like wearing something new....so I decided to wear a strapless white dress I have and wear it as a skirt. I like how it looks and it was perfectly comfy for a Friday night out!


quote of the day + happy weekend

A friend sent me this quote through instant messenger just as I sat myself down to my computer after making my cafe latte yesterday. Funny how messages like this sometimes come to us at the most appropriate times. Thanks Nedy for sharing with me. Now I'll share with you!

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
Marilyn Monroe

Its a good message. We need to have faith that things will always get better and that sometimes their is a lesson to be learned....

So what are you plans this weekend? I'm just waiting for the floor to dry after some mopping...then off to laundry land! HAHA I am going to do some more weaving and get ready for a sale this coming week! I also want to make more empanadas! I'll share recipe/photos soon :D.
Happy Weekend!

a happy little picnic

So a few weeks ago I met up with a sweet friend of mine from college who just moved to Panama for the Peace Corp! We decided to get together for a picnic and it was lots-o-fun! We laughed and enjoyed some delicious sunshine all the while munching on some fabulous snacks....take a peak at our day! Do you LOVE picnics? What do you bring to your picnics?

arrival at parque omar and ready to set-up our picnic!

nom nom....my friends brought some british digestive crackers (sounds weird but pretty tasty) and ginger snaps! They also brought some wine and we got creative making a sort of cheap kids version of ghetto sangria that is not too shabby. Just mix up some boxed red wine, coke and orange juice and you got yourself quite the classy drink! I brought some homemade savory veggie muffins-stuffed with ham and cheese, sliced pineapple, healthy chicken nuggets (crusted with oatmeal, almonds, & garbanzo flour!) and some more cookies!

Erica and Eric enjoying our fine fare! Please note my fabulous picnic basket I purchased during my new year's trip to el valle!

Friends enjoying a snack as we chat and enjoy the sunshine! Here's a close-up of some of the treats I brought back from Guatemala! They orangy thing is butternut squash and milk candy, the circular disks are almond candy and the little basket has pepita and milk candy!


Lalipourie Travel/Bicycle Chic: Antigua

So my first day in Antigua I was lucky enough to have free (that's right) bicycle rental from my already cheap and wonderful hostel. It was the perfect way to spend my first afternoon. I basically just wandered around took pictures and made a couple stops. It made me miss riding so much! I need more time to just wander around on a bike....
