In any situation, a gift card is a fantastic way to express your sentiment! It’s easy to obtain. It provides a variety of redemption locations. It gives the recipient a grand reason to practice self-care. It’s flat, SUPER easy to transport.. AND.. there’s SOOO many of which to choose!

You need anything for a wedding card? I got you! You need a teenage niece’s birthday gift? This is perfect! Did a close friend lose her mom? Grab a gift card for an order in meal!

Don’t Forget:

Blogmas Day 4🎄⛪🎄

If you’re feeling meh about get togethers, or your family is so far away… Maybe your friends are more like family; and, ya’ll can’t afford to travel ( my case!)… Here’s an inexpensive yet successful way to make Christmas memories. HOST A VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY

App suggestions: these have requirements regarding set up and participants. I’d suggest researching which is best for you, first.

  • Zoom
  • Facebook Messenger
  • What’s App
  • Houseparty

🎁Virtual Christmas: 10 Ideas for an Entertaining Christmas Party

1. Secret Santa or White Elephant gift Exchange: Websites, such as Elfster or White Elephant Online, provides the information and avenues you’d need to effortlessly organize one for your event.

2. Holiday Card Creation Challenge: Separate the participants into groups. Have each group use the Canva Templates to create a masterpiece:)

3. Name that tune or Christmas karaoke: This is very simple. Simple play a song via phone/tv/Spotify/Youtube and enjoy!

4. Virtual International Tour: This idea excites me! Without leaving your home, your group can sight see for a small fee (considering the cost of actually traveling.)

5. Create a Playlist: Music is always a good time at a party! This idea is cheap and a forever memorabilia! Use an music platform and create a playlist of each participants favorite song (Christmas or otherswise!)

6. Virtual Photo Booth: This may be a bit more complex; but, it’s well worth it! Use these apps to upload photos and create hilarious memories.

7. Chubby Elf Marshmallow Mouth: NOTE: choking hazard risk. Play at your own discretion. Here’s the original version. Elf is a modified version.

8. Movie: Watch a Christmas classic together:) Teleparty can help you do that!

9. Write a Christmas Story: ask each person to write personal holiday memories on paper. Next blend them into an unforgettable tale:)

10. Last but not least: Ice Breakers: You have to get the crowd warmed up with some easy entertainment. These suggestions will have you all warmed up in no time. Here’s a great list.

Enjoy Yourself! That’s truly what’s most important.

With Love & Light,


Celebrating Hispanic Heritage

You guys get to see the celebration. I don’t post much on Facebook; and, I wanted to brag about my kids ❤️

I had no idea this encompassed 13 countries! This part was truly amazing!

My Calandra in the flowered dress ❤️ Kindergarteners did a music dance.

My Zivah is the little lady with the bit of messy hair. She’s tall 🙂 The 2nd grade class also did a musical dance.

Additionally, other classes with older kids sang a few songs! Following the performance, there was tacos and rice waiting in the cafeteria.

Yesterday, my Calandra went to a huge fruit farm. She and her classmates went through a corn maze, rode on a wagon ride, picked pumpkins, and ate apples.


It feels incredible to celebrate all the aspects of this wonderful time of year.

I hope you take some time and explore something foreign. I hope you let yourself really “see” and “listen” to it. Taste it, it’s authentication in it’s existence. Open your mind. Teach your heart that there is a big beautiful world waiting to be explored.

With Love and Light,

Nova Namastè

52nd Day of 365 Thanks Giving

Today I’m giving thanks for this beautiful young lady! It was she, 8 years ago, who made me a mom!

Born at 7:07, Miss Zivah came into this world:)

For the longest time, 6.5 years, she’s been my sidekick! We were each other’s right hand man for a solid year. I didn’t know I could manage being a single mom; but, she’s been awesome!!

I’m so thankful for her and our journey together!

Until next time,

Stay Safe, Speak Life, Spread Kindness

Written for Your Daily Word Prompt

Gift of yourself 🎄

Hear is love for you:

Love Yourself so that you RECOGNIZE alone isn’t LONELY

You are OK… being alone with your badass self!

You are OK being at home, on your day off, decorating for Christmas, catching up on that book list you’ve been wanting to read, watching the makeup tutorials or moving around your place.

Recognize alone means you are doing life for you! You’re OK with quiet, you’re OK with your thoughts, who you are, comfortable with just as things are…

Being alone means you are single… Putting yourself first… Embracing your talents and interests, investing and promising to yourself. You are nurturing and guiding yourself to a higher self.

You decide your looks. You decide your morals and believes… All that does and /or doesn’t matter. You create your life, who you are. No one lives your life ; no one else is going to walk your steps… No one else will deal with your consequences. Your life is YOURS!

That’s the beginning of being comfortable, whether you’re with someone or not. That’s the beginning of the journey, because it’s you coming to know who you are. As you continue to travel that road, you realize that power of choice.

The rest of us don’t need to know, you are not in need of our validating… You only need one… YOURS! You first must embrace your confidence within yourself, for your life.


Being lonely is an Emptiness… It has absolutely NOTHING to do with relationship status. There are celebrities that are the loneliest. They’re committing suicide because money isn’t satisfying the human need of “purpose”. Loneliness is a character trait, alone is a status.

When you’re lonely, something is missing… And you’re always trying to fill that void with something temporary.

Being lonely means you feel a need… But, hear this, that need is ONLY what’s within yourself. You will NEVER fill that need from an external source. You were created an original, from a blueprint created by The Most High… Stitched together is a beautiful collection of strengths and flaws, attributes and blessings, thoughts, talents, and stories that only you can give.

The life of loneliness is confusion and ashamed of self, astranged peace of mind, Munipulation, brokeness, judgements and bitterness…. Loneliness is a mental place…

And it’s your place… Unless you choose to redecorate.

Written in honor of all women who have ever been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. Whether the best has been laid to rest or continues to get strong every day, this is for you. You’re never alone 💕 PINKTOBER!!💕

Lettrs: Hoorah

Gretchen is like so many others, above and beyond what’s asked of her, selflessly giving, dedicated worker, loyal to work and family. She managed, though, to trip into some sticky situations with a monster of a spouse, and a greedy employer.

We’ve been in situations that have been sticky, haven’t we? Our choices have gotten us in a bit of a mess, but hindsight is 20/20. Her instance was rather serious. She needed to act fast, and finally put herself first… To protect her life! Are you in that position? Are you holding on to something that’s destroying you, your happiness, and your family? What will it take for you to let go of it, despite your unhealthy reliance and fear of the detachment? I would hope you’d look in the mirror and give yourself the awesome peptalk you deserve.

Adventure awaits, a new and prosperous life awaits, real love awaits, positive friendships and healthy connections await, a better you awaits, all that you’ve dreamed of awaits… You just have to take courage and stepped out the door.
