Dealing With The Coronavirus in Mexico + Tips For Your Family

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.

Homeschool Life With Zé and Vito

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:

What To Wear On A First Date

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”

It’s My 5 Year Blog Anniversary! (And Let’s Also Celebrate Because I’ve Kept The Same Hair Color For 6 Months!)

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!

I Moved To Mexico!

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!”

36th Trip Around The Sun

Hey Fabbies! Whew! It’s been a while right?! Pardon me pardon me! I’m not gonna say “I’ve been sooooo busy!” or anything predictable like that, but I will say, blogging has definitely been put on the back burner for the last few months. (I mean, this post was supposed to be posted November 21st on my actual birthday!) But no worries because I am back!  … Continue reading 36th Trip Around The Sun

My Solo Adventures In New Orleans!

As you guys know, I recently went to New Orleans to be a part of an unforgettable bachelorette weekend. The festitivites lasted from Friday until Sunday, but I stayed in New Orleans a few extra days just to recover and to explore! This suggestion was actually made by my husband, who said that I should just stay a few extra days just to relax and just to “be”. I was like, damn. “Why didn’t I think of that?!” I cannot even remember the last time I’ve spent time in a hotel alone. I mean, this may not be a common thing for most, but as someone who travels often, I’m typically around a lot of people whenever I’m traveling: my kids of course, Supreme, friends, family. So to actually have several days, alone, with just me and my 2-step, well, I was absolutely giddy with excitement! Continue reading “My Solo Adventures In New Orleans!”

My Trip To New Orleans For My BFF’s Bachelorette Weekend! TONS OF PHOTOS AND VIDEOS!

Happy Tuesday Fabbies! I know it’s been a while since I’ve last posted. And at this point I know it goes without saying that I have been busy. Besides the usual obligations that come with being a mom and wife, I have continued to be chin deep in Raven Collection. I cannot wait to unveil the full collection of handbags and shoes to you guys once everything is complete. And guess what? Everything is almost complete…But since I like to move in silence so to speak, you guys will see everything for yourselves soon enough! 😉 But nonetheless, I wanted to be sure to share my wonderful trip to New Orleans with you guys on my blog. And I mean, what girl doesn’t like reading and seeing pictures from bachelorette weekends?!? So fun right? Anyway, since my last post, I have traveled to the mighty South! First to my hometown of Jackson, Mississippi to visit my family in late June, and then 2 weekends ago  I traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana to celebrate my best friend Brittanii’s bachelorette weekend. She is getting married in New York City next month, so me, along with her sisters and friends celebrated her last remaining moments as a “single gal”.

I Did Acupuncture For The 1st Time!

Happy Friday Fabbies! So one week ago today (last Friday), I underwent acupuncture. Wait, is that even how you say it? “I had acupuncture done!” or “I underwent acupuncture!” ?? What is the proper syntax for that? I’ll stick with this: I had acupuncture done. Okay that sounds better. Anyway, last Friday, I had acupuncture done, and it was not at all what I expected!
