5 Bike Trip Items [a short ride]

 Today my friends and I went on a short bike trip to a small restaurant in the neighborhood. We were celebrating a friends belated birthday and saying farewell to spring....SUMMER HERE WE COME!

5 items I took:

1. Water
For a ~3mile trip in a hot day this might not be enough. I had to refill mine at the restaurant lol. Make sure you take a bigger bottle of water or take two this size. That should be enough. I'd like to advice you to remind your friends (hopefully before they leave their house) to take water! My friends forgot theirs but don't worry. I did share :)

2. Cell phone
Even if you just take it for emergency purposes.

3. Hair clip
If you're a girl this might come in handy. Specially if you're wearing your hair down. 

4. Camera
We need to document every second of our lives...of course :D 

5. Satchel 
Something to carry all these things in. Mine is pretty small but everything always fits in this one so it works for me :) The pin on my satchel says Paz Sobre Violencia (= Peace Before Violence). PS. Doesn't the word "satchel" remind you of The Hangover? So funny! For your amusement I included the movie clip! :D

The cats got a little curious while I was taking pictures of these items...curious cats! Hashtag, typical lol.

5 Traditional Mexican Hats

After my last post about the Ricky Ricardo Straw hat, I became interested in other types of hats worn in different parts of the world. So here are 5 traditional hats worn in Mexico.

1. The Mariachi Hat The Mariachi hat is usually worn by someone that is a part of a Mariachi group. The hat is part of the typical Mariachi outfit. Compared to the charro hat (see below), the mariachi hat is much more elaborate and fancy looking. However, as with many other things, it varies. By the way, check out the details, on those hats! Prettyful.

2. The Charro Hat When I think of a Charro, what comes to mind is a Mariachi singer. However, Charros are usually men that participate in Rodeo Competitions. Also, I noticed that sombreros de charro are usually less decorated than those worn by Mariachi groups. 

3. The Vaquero Hat This is probably one of the most well known Mexican hats because these hats are usually used to depict the cowboy image.  Here's a spanish lesson for ya: Un vaquero = A cowboy

4. Th…

Review: Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta - Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Hi there Dear friends,  Today I bring you a food review that I just had to share! I feel I must share this with you because I was pleasantly surprised on how good this was. It's Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta in Creamy Chicken Alfredo. I have personally never tried these pastas, so I was skeptical. However, on this particular day  was at Targe and was starving because I had not eaten all morning. Thus, I decided to try this pasta. 
 I am happy to report that, yes, this is very creamy. It also has a good amount of chicken in it, which makes it that more filling. The top is somewhat crusty and when you get past it, its where the sauciness comes to play. The taste of the actual Alfredo sauce is also very flavorful and delicious. 
They say that when you are extremely hungry, everything tastes good. BUT, I can tell you that to me this creamy pasta was very delicious and definitely would recommended. So, if one sad day, you find yourself at Target with an empty stomach, do not hesitate …

The Routine...

As students, we all have that dreaded period where everything seems to pile up with no sign of slowing down. We also all have that friend that just seems to always forget they're a student and who happens drag you down their own stress lane without giving a second thought that you might be stressing too. "Hey, I have my own stressors ok! Calm down and get it together!" Haha. Steering back to course, here is a short story written and inspired by one such friend during our high school years. 
The red velvet curtains open up to a heavily breathing boy with sweat dripping down the sides of his temples:
"Oh, no! No, no, no!" cried Edgar an early morning.
"What happened?" said Rita tilting her head with an i-know-what-you-did kind of look. "Its my homework-- I..." "You didn't do it and its an essay thats due today by 3rd period" Rita said quickly interrupting Edgar. "Ha! Yes." Answered Edgar with a half guilty smile. "I did…
