Happy Monday Fabbies! I wanted to start sharing my favorite clips from my YouTube vlog episodes. Beginning in 2016, I started a YouTube page, “The Fab and Ravenous Life“. I turned on my (real) camera and vlogged my life at home in Scottsdale, Arizona. My vlogs was sort of follow-me-around-for-the-week while I did my day-to-day stuff: Cooking, raising Zé and Vito, running errands, going to the gym, etc. I did this for about half the year in 2016, and then after hosting Lit in the Desert and hiring a cameraman to film and edit our weekend (shoutout to Flashy), I decided that I so much preferred someone else filming rather than myself, because that gave me free hands to move around and do shit. Hahahaha. But in all seriousness, since starting that YouTube, I put out a few episodes with hired camera crew and editor. My last YouTube video was 2 years ago, and I am beyond due for a new episode! What do ya’ll think?!Continue reading “My Favorite YouTube Vlog Clips Of The Week!”
Hey There Fabbies! Wow! What a year right? 2020 has proven to be one big unpredictable never-ending rollercoaster. The last time I posted was at the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic. The world was just beginning to go on lock down, and mandates were put into place all over the world. At this time the mandate of wearing protective face masks was beginning to be … Continue reading I Haven’t Blogged Since March! Life Update!
Happy Wednesday Fabbies! Whooooo the world is in a bit of a situation here huh? The Covid-19 virus, better known as the Coronavirus, has called mass hysteria and confusion around the world, with thousands of cases of people getting seriously ill and some even dying from the virus. This has many of us shook and feeling like we got the rug pulled from under us, as businesses and restaurants are closing down, mandatory curfews are put into effect, and the economy is crashing. My thoughts and prayers are with anyone who has been directly affected by the virus, and I pray that we all get through this challenging time quickly and in good health.Continue reading “Dealing With The Coronavirus in Mexico + Tips For Your Family”

Happy Friday Fabbies! It’s been a while since I’ve written a post on “Motherhood”. And actually, today’s post is more about childhood than motherhood, but you will see what I mean as you continue reading. If you read my blog post on how we moved to Mexico a few months back, then you saw that I mentioned that we homeschool Zé and Vito, and have been ‘formally’ homeschooling them since 2017. And I say “formally”, because 2017 is the year that Zé started kindergarten, so that is when Supreme and I began implementing specific lesson plans if you will. Before then, he and I would just teach the kids the basics such as learning to write their names (when they were like 2 and 3), sight words with flash cards, practicing writing their letters and handwriting, and so on:Continue reading “Homeschool Life With Zé and Vito”
Happy Thursday Fabbies! How is everyone’s summer going? (Or winter, depending on where ever you are in the world). The summer weather here in San Miguel de Allende is pretty mild, which is a pretty big change considering I’m coming from the hot desert that is Arizona. During the day, it is typically anywhere from 75 degrees to 85 degrees, and the mornings and evenings are cool, where it feels like its Fall. Plus, it rains here! It never rained in Arizona haha! It’s raining right now as we speak actually, creating the perfect backdrop of sound as I write this blog post. Anywho, today’s post is all about outfits and storytelling! It’s been a good minute since I’ve posted a “What To Wear” post, so today’s blog will be about what to wear on a 1st Date! (And if you’re past the “1st date stage and are already boo-ed up, this post will give you date night ideas for the future too. 😉 Continue reading “What To Wear On A First Date”
Hello There Fabbies! Today marks year FIVE that http://www.fabandravenous.com has been up and running. Can you believe that?! FIVE. YEARS. That’s how long it takes to graduate college for some people! (or high school depending on if teachers was hating with the grades hahaha). Five years is how long it takes me to do Zé’s hair. Five years is how long I’ve been sketching designs. Five years is how long it takes me to fold laundry after it’s been sitting in the basket all week. Five years is almost all of Vito’s life! Five years is a long time to be doing anything if you ask me. And well, here I am, five years later: still blogging!
Well hello there Fabbies! Whew! It’s been 3 months since I’ve last spoken to you guys. And I promise it is for good reason. I was simply hibernating for the winter and waiting for Spring to come so I could blog again. Hahaha just kidding. The reality is, since the start of 2019, (well, really at the end 2018 too), my family and I have been preparing for our huge move…to MEXICO! If you follow me on Instagram and have seen some of my IG Stories, then you may already know that Supreme, the kids and I all moved to Mexico at the beginning of March. San Miguel de Allende to be exact. And let me tell you: It has been nothing short of an amazing, busy, whirlwind journey across the border. But we are here. In our new home. In a whole new country to continue this wild journey of our free-spirited lives. In this blog post, I will tell you why we decided to choose Mexico, how the process of the moving abroad went, and what we plan to do while living here. Continue reading “I Moved To Mexico!”
