Selena: an Homage to the Queen of Tejano

See below for costume details
Unless you've lived under a rock for the past 20 years, there's no denying the influence that Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla has had on today's pop culture.  Being a Corpus Christi native and resident of Selena's old neighborhood, it was only right that I represent for my city and hood and transform into Selena for Halloween.

24 Hours in Vegas, My Story

The morning of October 1, 2017 - Just landed in Vegas
It has been 3 weeks since the incident but I chillingly remember it like it was yesterday. My trip to Las Vegas that was scheduled for October 1-2, 2017 had been planned for months. By design, this was going to be a solo vacation.  The trip was celebratory in nature. I had just experienced what I considered to be a victory in my professional life and I was feeling myself at the moment. There was no particular event that dictated the date that I decided on for my travel, the flight and room rate just happened to be cheapest on Oct 1. I became ecstatic once I scheduled my flight and booked my room at Caesars Palace. I didn't share my travel plans with many people:  I only told my mom days before I was scheduled to leave. I had specific plans when I arrived in Vegas:  simply to shop, see the sights and catch some sort of night-time entertainment. I knew the fact that my hotel would be located right in the heart of the Las Vegas strip would afford me easy access to all of those things.
