Cielito Lindo

"Beautiful little sky: From you we came and to you we return." 
Pic from inside the eatery "Cielito Lindo" on Olvera St., Los Angeles, CA.

As a little girl I loved when my grandparents would bring me to Olvera St. in Los Angeles. I had never lived in Mexico, so it was always an exciting experience. I loved eating the sweet Mexican milk candy and going in this candle shop. The street holds a lot more for me than just a thing to do in L.A. My grandpa used to play guitar with his trio at the restaurants on this street. Many that remain today. 

dress, flats- H&M (I went retail for day one of the conference)
headband- I made it from a necklace.
Aww look at me before I got preggo. Wearing the same accessory combo haha.

I wish for more taquitos. Cielito Lindo has the best taquitos, smothered in a green salsa. I get them with beans and cheese. I ate them too fast to take a picture. whoops. Instead, enjoy this inedible wishing well. 

Canta, no llores
Sing, don't cry



  1. Mint = gorgeous :) Sweet accessories too. Looks like a lovely place. Can't go past a wishing well!

  2. love that color on you! can't believe it's from h&m. i never find stuff there.

  3. I love this dress of yours from H and M

    very cool that you went to a blogger event and even sweeter that you were able to share some of your memories with us.

  4. I love Olvera St. too! Funny thing, the store you're standing in front of was actually my favorite one. Loved the mint on you and I can't believe you diy'ed your headband (you're such a creative lady)! Great meeting you this weekend! K.I.T
