Month of October

Oct. is of month honoring and celebrating. Every year, many celebrate Halloween, every year we honor Breast Cancer Survivors and Hispanic Heritage Month (which trickles in from September).

Back story of Halloween courtesy of History.com- Evolving from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain, modern Halloween has become less about literal ghosts and ghouls and more about costumes and candy. The Celts used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead. Over the millennia the holiday transitioned from a somber pagan ritual to a day of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults.

Do I celebrate Halloween? Not since my Naughty school girl costume back in high school! I do love getting adorable pictures from of my baby cousins all ready to go Trick-or-Treating! Can’t wait for this year’s batch of pics! And if there’s a Halloween party, I’d definitely go. But be warned: I’d probably be the one dressed in all black with a shirt that reads “Costume.” *Hehe*


September 15th to October 15th is the time of paying tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our (USA) nation and society.


October isn’t just about black, blood red and orange. In honor of creating awareness for Breast Cancer, many transform their world (or themselves) into a pink paradise. In the words of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help!”

So please, do what you can to help with this amazing cause. Together, we will find a cure!




Here are a few outfits honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

 Be safe. Have fun. Walk for a cure.
