Oysho Blouse. Bought.
Zara slippers (Need to try on, but if not these then another slide on slipper)
A short sleeve blouse. Still on the lookout. I’m trying to find one without ruffles which is difficult with “The Little House on the Prarie” trend going on right now. If no luck, I’ll purchase a graphic tee.
Bobbi Brown Lux Lipstick in Brocade. Bought. I would have never bought this lipstick, but the girl at the counter kept telling me to try it. Well I did and I love it. Trust the professionals!
Beaded earrings. Still on the lookout for these too.

I’m not a big fan of salads. I try to eat them because I know I should, but rarely do I get that satisfied feeling from them. The exception is my moms spinach salad with croutons. Put a bowl of her salad in front of me and I’m all over it.
- Stir fry 3 tsp sesame seeds in butter until the seeds turn brown. Scoop out the seeds and set aside.
- Cut up some French bread into cubes for the croutons. Add more butter to your pan and fry away. Amounts are subject to your preference. A lot of croutons = more bread. Buttery croutons = more butter.
- When the croutons are crusty, put them in a bowl and toss with parmesan cheese. Set aside.
For the dressing:
- Mix 3 tbsp. oil with 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
- Add the sesame seeds, salt & pepper, garlic powder, lemon pepper, and salad supreme seasoning. (All seasoning to taste)
Toss the spinach with the dressing and add the croutons.

In mid-2015, global debate raged over an increasingly large exodus from Syria, while the terror attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015 exacerbated tensions about matter of asylum seekers across the world.
Articles that were popular on social media in the wake of those attacks in Paris included some pertaining to similar events in U.S. and world history. One prominent rumor accurately held that Anne Frank was one of many Jewish children denied entry to the United States in the early stages of World War II, and as a result she (like others) died in the Holocaust. Another surprisingly relevant claim involved the sentiment of Americans toward to European refugees in 1938, with the vast majority of the former (80 percent) unmoved by their plight and disapproving of their migration to the U.S. to escape Hitler’s growing reach.
Another popular rumor was that iconic children’s author and illustrator Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) had espoused surprisingly strong positions on the isolationist political climate in the United States as World War II began. Among Seuss’ putative works was the above-reproduced cartoon, eerily applicable to the Syrian refugee crisis of 2015. In that cartoon, a self-satisfied mother wearing a sweater bearing the legend “America First” reads a book called “Adolf the Wolf” to two horrified, saucer-eyed children, telling the youngsters the story of how “the wolf chewed up the children and spit out their bones … But those were Foreign Children, and it didn’t really matter”:
Seuss’ catalog of political cartoons is a well-documented (if infrequently referenced) aspect of his long career. The 1999 book Dr. Seuss Goes to War: The World War II Editorial Cartoons of Theodor Seuss Geisel focuses on this period of Seuss’ work.

L’Anfora Ristorante Italiano
It’s always awesome when you find a good restaurant. Sunday Sr. Elizondo and I decided to have lunch in Santiago at L’Anfora. I’m so happy we did. It had a great vibe with a very attentive staff. We had a bottle of LA Cetto Nebbiolo 2013 which was a smooth red vino, caprese salad with focaccia, pastas, and flan. We enjoyed all of them! And after, with tummies extended from full capacity, we walked through the plaza planning our next visit.

Yo he estado clases de español por approximate 3 años en Monterrey. He tenido clases a la Universidad, escuela de español, y tutores. Todo eran bueno y cada tenia alguna cosa a oferta. En mi opinion, la Universidad es la mejor para grammatic. Tutores son la mejor para conversación. Si pudiera hacer otra vez, me gustaría ir a Universidad primera, entonces ir a un tutor.
Yo creo que dedicación es muy importante. En Monterrey, es muy facil usar ingles porque mucha gente la habla. Ahora, digo a gente que necesito hablar in español por practicar. Mas gente en Mexico son muy amable conmigo. Esta es tambien bueno porque necesito escuchar español de diferente gente. Yo he muy dificil tiempo escuchando español. Para mi, mexicanos hablan muy rapido y en Monterrey muy fuerte tambien!
Por ahora, puedo hablar los basicos con gente. En el future, yo estaré teniendo muchas conversaciones en español. Espero mas rapido que luego.
Antes olvido, Feliz Mujeres Internaciónal Dia
