Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please visit Amazon.com to get your own copy of Far Cry 3, today’s Gold Box Deal of the Day! I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.

Nothing says relaxation better than breaking away from the stressful tasks of daily life and immersing yourself into a different world. One where you make the rules and see out your own decisions. One where you can feel like top dog. That’s why after a days work and trials I like to relax and start up my console and play some video games. My favorite type of video games are the ones that are like a second world, one where you can truly immerse yourself into. Get lost! A game like FarCry 3. With it’s beautiful graphics and stunning visuals, I’ll be questioning whether or not I would like to partake in my usual daily rituals. Or stay in this world, one where I’m the heroine.

I prefer games like this, it’s the ultimate immersion. Do what you want, and be who you want. Games like shooters I’ll play if I need to get my frustrations out. Pwning randoms online, getting top score and aiming for the highest K/D. It’s the utmost pleasure to be the smack talker, than to be the smack talk-ee. Maybe even fighting games sometimes too. Visualize the person that gave you the most stress that day. Now paste their head over Ryu’s in Street Fighter and go to town on them.

But games like FarCry 3… The scenery, the characters, the fact that 99.9% of this island’s wildlife wants me dead! For the sake of relaxation I will take this heavy task. Nothing is more fun then exploring a vast open world game; doing the main story line, or whatever it as I please. Countless hours I can spend on end with this, but sadly… My life just knocked on the door and I have to go back to the stress of the real world. But when I get back home… And I will. I will become that heroine again!

How do you unwind after a long day?

Celebrating Reyes Magos with Net10 Wireless #Net10Latino

The Holiday’s aren’t over in my house till we celebrate Ryes Magos with the family. This  is a very special day in which we celebrate the arrival of the Three Kings. It takes place on January 6th  This year my family celebrated Dia de los Reyes or Rayes Magos with some help from Net10 Wireless. Like every Reyes Magos I start it at church with friends and family. We had a beautiful service, the three kings visited, Joseph and Mary were there and Baby Jesus. The day was filled with love and laughter! They put on a play at the church about the three kings story. Here are some of the photos below.

We decided to have dinner at La Carreta with the family, of course I had to get my Cafecito to get me through the rest of the day!

One of our traditions in my family is to leave some hay, water and shoes under the bed. When i was kid i thought that was crazy! But as i got older i understood the meaning of doing this. Part of the meaning was to show us that we don’t need gifts to make us happy, all we need is our family and friends, faith and love for one another.
As the day continued our day we ended up going to the arcade near our home, and we had such a blast playing MS. Pac-Man with my brother.

I was so glad I was able to document my Reyes magos with my Net10 phone! Of course posted these photo’s on instagram with my cell phone.

Kenelma Figueroa con sus modelos en PRHFW 2012

Tuve el honor de conocerla en persona en Puerto Rico High Fashion Week 2012, el cual estaba cubriendo para mis blogs, la presidenta del evento Caridad Fernandez le dio una donación para que llevara a sus niñas al evento, y ver sus caritas llenas de emoción no tenia precio. Hablar con ella es como respirar aire fresco, su paz, su dulzura, y su gran corazón son de inspiración para todo el que la conoce. Exito siempre mi querida amiga, que Dios te siga bendiciendo para que sigas con este bello proyecto.

Puerto Rico mourns Ana Grace Marquez and all the victims of Newtown Conn. shooting.

This is one of the hardest blogs I have ever written in my life. It’s not about Fashion Shows, Editorials, the things I normally blog about it is about something that touched and broke my heart….last Friday I came home from work, I am working as a pre-school teacher at a great school named Plaza Kids, in my hometown of Aguas Buenas , Puerto Rico. I sat down and checked Facebook and saw a comment from my good friend Janelle Cissell (Ruby Leonne) talking about death of children I hadn’t heard the news and she told me what had happened in Connecticut, I was devastated…I thought about my students, their beautiful faces, their innocence, the way they hug and kiss me and tell me they love me. In the morning before starting my class I always talk to my daughter and before hanging up they say to her “Good Morning Ana, we love you” they know her from pics I have in my classroom…. they are so precious, and for this to happen to these innocent victims is so sad, especially at Christmas time.

Ana Grace Marquez

Among the children was one of our own from Puerto Rico she was the niece of the Mayor of Maunabo, Ana Grace Marquez….I keep thinking about how scared those little children were when they were killed and I am having a hard time dealing with this, my prayers go out to the family of the victims…may they rest in peace!!

Assasins Creed III Is The Amazon Box Deal #AC3Gold

gaming_ac3logo

Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please visit Amazon.com to get your own copy of Assassin’s Creed 3, today’s Gold Box Deal of the Day! I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.

I’m not sure if you guys know but i love Video Games, yes i confess i loveee them they are my ultimate stress reliever. One of my favorite games out there is Assassin’s Creed.  Let me tell you why i love Assassin’s Creed: Assassin’s Creed has been one of my favorite adventure games since the first premiered with Altair back in ’07. It wasn’t just the beautiful landscape designs that took me in when I first played this game. It was the amazing gameplay and unique story. I have never played a free roam stealth game on such an amazing scale. The different ways to assassinate your victims, the different locations you traveled too and from. And such a mysterious story as well.I didn’t think it could get any better than this. But then Assassins Creed 2 came out (alongside 2 other sub games featuring Ezio) blew me away.

This picture is a mixture of my collection of games and my brothers too, we already have AC,  AC 2 , and AC: Brotherhood.

 The graphics got better, the areas became larger, the combat system was more polished and added so many different features. And as Brotherhood and Revelations came out, each got progressively better! I was taken back. When I heard word Ubisoft was making Assassin’s Creed 3, I naturally got excited. But I knew at this point the Assassin’s Creed franchise couldn’t continue to get any better. And then I saw it. And I was wrong. Again, the graphics astonishing, the character design amazing, and the story… The story was set during the Revolutionary War. My mind raced with the possibilities this game could hold! Seeing what Ubisoft has done with the past Assassin’s Creed games, and what they are doing now. I have no doubt that this new title will BLOW ME AWAY!

Today’s Amazon Gold Box Deal Of The Day Is Assassin’s Creed 3, and it’s only $33, TODAY ONLY! Here’s how to get it! Just go here and buy it today to get this awesome deal
