Hot spot to Ring in the New Year / Donde esperar el Año Nuevo

Hot spot to Ring in the New Year / Donde esperar el Año Nuevo

New Years is almost here, it’s the time to reconnect and have new goals, so where to spend New Years Eve is very important. It’s a funny thing how your priority changes by the years. When I was single with no kids, it was all about the party and waiting for the sunrise by the beach. Later on as a mom, it’s all about being with my daughters; there is no place I want to be on New Years Eve but with them. For this reason, I don’t usually go out, I want a safe environment for them, and that safe environment is home (because I didn’t know any better). This year I learned about this hot spot to ring in the New Year, called Knott’s Berry Farm. New-Years-Eve-Header-338

It’s not that I didn’t know that Knott’s Berry Farm existed, lol, I do, but I didn’t know that Knott’s is the place to ring in 2015 with a night full of special family-friendly experiences including live musical acts, exclusive stage shows, and Merry Farm entertainment, culminating in a fantastic fireworks show.

As the final moments of 2014 count down, the Knott’s Sky Cabin will dramatically rise over 200 ft. to the top of the “K” tower as special lighting effects countdown to midnight. When the cabin reaches the top at the stroke of midnight the “K” tower, the skies above Knott’s will light up with a spectacular fireworks show! Now this is cool and my daughters are more excited about New Year’s Eve than Christmas.

Our first time at Knott’s

Knott’s is open from 10:00 am – 1:00 am and the New Year’s Eve Celebration is included with regular daytime admission. There’s live entertainment everywhere you turn at Knott’s on New Year’s Eve and I am planning to take advantage of all of them. Another thing I like about my new hot spot for New Year’s Eve is that I will be wearing a comfy chic outfit to stay warm and cozy, and here I show you my outfit inspiration (not our tractional New Year’s Eve outfit, right?). The yellow underwear? Just for good luck 🙂

Who doesn’t like to be backstage? I certainly do, specially when it comes to be closest to one of my favorite animals “Horses” in one of my favorite shows in Los Angeles “Medieval times” Dinner and tournament, you can read all about why I love it so much in my previous post here . So when I got the invitation to be backstage before the show and be with the famous Pure Spanish horses, or PRE (Pura Raza Española), and the handsome knights before the night’s performance at Medieval Times tournament where all the magic happens-I was -of course- super excited. medieval_times_back_stagehorses_medieval_times cola_de_caballo Medieval_times_dinner

I was very impressed on how they treat their horses at medieval times, so clean and with so much love. I was so curious about their tail and hair, how they keep it untangled and so pretty, are you curious too? well, they just treat it as we treat out own hair and even braid it to be untangled, protective and wavy/ curly, because curly is better, right ? lol

I also had my medieval moment with a tall and handsome (you know, you know) Knight, and he taught me some moves, medieval style which was super fun. Medieval times is a super fun place for the whole family, specially for girls, the little ones really enjoy to dress up as a princess or just wear a beautiful crown.

Minion inspired OOTD/ la fiebre de los Minion se apoderan de mi look

minion_outfit_idea Minion_ride_universal_studios_Hollywood

I am totally in love with the Minion characters, they are crazy, cute and yellow, a color that as growing up, I never used because it was not for my ” skin color” , but one of the things that having my natural hair taught me, is not being afraid of colors, women of colors look amazinling (maybe not a word) in bold colors. So I went to try the New ride Minion mayhem at Universal Studios and got inspired to wear the Minion colors Blue and yellow. It was a very hot day, and I had a lot of walking and waiting in line ahead of me, so I chose a very comfortable outfit, very casual, fresh and cute, one thing I always love about Universal Studios Hollywood is the big fat cool zone, my kids love it and my curls appreciate it (you curly girls know what I am talking about)summer_cooler_curly_girls pink_blush_online_store summer_sandals

About the Minion Mayhem: it’s a super cute 3D ride with movie-based motion stimulator the way only Universal Studios can do it. I really love how only after a few months of my last visit to the park, everything was so different and made me and my family have a totally new experience, after you come out of the ride, your kids can enjoy a multi-level water play area with a spinning Dumbo-style Silly Swirly Fun Ride. The mini-land next to the Despicable Me building adds a scream-filled soundscape and dynamic energy throughout the ride-in-a-box park. With its stylized mountain peaks and colorful backdrop beyond an inviting entry arch, Super Silly Fun Land offers a rare location in the park where visitors step into a themed outdoor space rather than simply walking past it. You can find more pictures about Universal Studio Hollywood HERE  from my last visit.Minio_ride

Let’s Chat!!!... Have you being to Universal Studios Lately, and did you like the Minion ride? Or maybe you want to talk about my outfit or hair…I love to read your comments.
