SO I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON SOMETHING EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND MEANINGFUL TO ME. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN PLACED IN MY HEART AND FEEL THAT I HAVE BEEN CALLED TO DO. AS A WOMAN OF GOD, AS A MEMBER OF MY COMMUNITY I FEEL THE NEED TO GIVE BACK AND TO HELP. WE ARE IN A DAY AND AGE NOW WHERE YOUNG GIRLS MINDS ARE FLOODED WITH DISTORTED VIEWS OF WHAT BEAUTY MEAN, AND HOW BEAUTY IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK. THE YOUNG GIRLS OF TODAY HAVE BECOME SO HARD ON THEMSELVES AND ARE QUICK TO BEAT THEIRSELVES UP. BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT PRETTY ENOUGH,THIN ENOUGH,TALL ENOUGH,THEIR HAIR IS TOO NAPPY,THEIR HAIR IS TOO STRAIGHT,THEY HAVE TOO MANY FRECKLES ON THEIR NOSE,PHYSICAL DISABILITIES ETC. IT HURTS ME, IT TRUELY HURTS ME BECAUSE ALL I WANT TO DO IS EMBRACE THESE YOUNG GIRLS AND TELL THEM HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY ARE INSIDE AND OUT, NO ONE SHOULD TELL THEM DIFFERENT. 
THIS ORGANIZATION IS GOING TO WELCOME THESE YOUNG GIRLS WITH OPEN AND LOVING ARMS AND AS THEY MOVE ON IN LIFE WE WILL RELEASE THEM INTO THE WORLD CONFIDENT IN KNOWING WE HAVE DONE OUR BEST AS EDUCATORS/ROLE MODELS/ACTIVISTS TO TEACH THEM VERY IMPORTANT VIRTUES. 

SO PLEASE STAY TUNED*
IF YOU HAVE ANY INPUT/IDEAS/THOUGHTS/PERSONAL TESTIMONIES/WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE/SHOW SUPPORT/ETC. IT WOULD MEAN THE ABSOLUTE WORLD TO MEAND THE YOUNG GIRLS. I AM WORKING SO HARD TO MAKE THIS DREAM OF MINE COME TRUE. AND I WILL CONTINUE TO WORK AS HARD AS I NEED TO INORDER TO ACHEIVE THIS GOAL. WITH GOD BY MY SIDE I KNOW ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

Kelly Rowland feat. David Guetta-Commander



I think she did a fantastic job going solo after Destinys Child went their seperate ways. I also like the fact that she chose a different look, style, and sound than Beyonce. Her voice fits the beat and on top of that I love David Guetta. Not to mention she is killing it in this video. Love the voguing moves.

Artist's I love and Appreciate











Random Moments during my day

I truely love walking down the street and taking pictures of random things. It inspires me, makes me giggle, makes me reflect, stirs up old memories ....it's all quite bittersweet.

ZOYA NAILPOLISH REVIEW

So finally the nail polish that I ordered from Art of Beauty came in. I ordered six colors. Robyn, Priscilla, Dana, Trinity,Kara and Perrie. Beautiful Vibrant Colors. I hate the fact that I spend so much money on different nail polish brands to just have the result of it chipping away the next day or so. It fustrates me, thats my hard earned money going down the drain. I put a base coat , the color nail polish chosen and then a top coat, still chipped nail polish. Not Cool.

So I cam across a blog that feature ZOYA Nail polish. She had a positive review on it. I clicked the link to the site.  *gasp* They had a cool sale going on, trade in your old nail polish for new Zoya Nail Polish. Promoting the whole Go Green Movement, which I am totally for. So I ordered six to trade in six of my old nail polishes. The price was great. All I had to pay was the shipping and handling not the actual price of the nail polish. So all six came out to $21.00 which is not quite bad at all. The colors again i love.

Zoya Nail Polish has over a 300 color selection. Anywhere from Reds, Pinks, Purples, Mauves, Nudes, Golds, Greens, Blues, Yellows and more! It is said, known and reviewed to be the longest lasting natural nail polish on the market.

Today my cousin Amanda and I did our nails. She chose Robyn and I chose Kara. I really like the consistency, its not clumpy, nor is it too sheer. When applying Kara all I needed was the most I would say 2 coats of the color. Usually I have to do more when its sheer and when its clumpy, I find myseld wasting Nail Polish remover more and more. I love how the nail polish bottle looks as well. Easy to slip in my purse or tote bad when going to work. Today will be day 1 of wearing Zoya Nail Polish. I will continue to document the results until I see the color begining to chip/fade.

Below are pictures of the color on my nail and my cousins nail
along with the colors that I purchased.
Enjoy xoxo...
-Cynthia.

6 FLAGS

So on Saturday June 19th was my first time ever going to six flags and my first time getting on a rollercoaster. I think I turned every shade of white/grey that ever existed. My first and last rollercoaster....The Scream Machine;now my voice is hoarse. But of course everyone else sought entertainment threw my blood curlding screams threwout the 30 seconds of the ride. How lovely my friends take joy in my suffering [LOL*] I think I also got whiplash from the *ahem* Runaway Train. It's a kiddy ride, Yes I know! But still ....my butt lifted off the seat of that ride 3 times! Do you know what that feels like *I'm sure you do* ? That caused me to pass out for a good 5 seconds and regain conscienceness all over again. Oh man....goodtimes though. So My loves and I are planning to return again for FRIGHT FEST. But we are going to make sure that we go on weekday when majority of people are either at work or school. Smart plan. Well....I hope all you lovely readers enjoyed this ballsy hot weekend. I caught the most deformed TAN to. No Bueno.

ZOYA x NAILPOLISH

So, I am allways browsing threw other blogs because I end up finding incredible items/sites/events. It's fun and entertains me, my parents or anyone else who is not internet savy does not seem to quite understand that. But that is absolutely fine by me. Eventually when I speak about events/items and so forth that others may have not heard of, eventually later on they thank me.

So back to what I originally stated in the beginning. I browse threw ther blogs and find awesome products. I stumbled on one, ZOYA NAIL POLISH. If you know me, you know that I love to polish my nails. But I must confess I am guilty of a horrible habbit, I allow the color to start chipping lol. One of my closest friends HATES it with a passion, he allways cringes at the sight of it. Ha, I do it intentionally!!! [j/k]

ZOYA NAIL POLISH, I must say as soon as I clicked on the link, blew me away. I have never seen such vibrant Nail Polish Colors. They were so vivd, animated, pulsating. I had to order me a few, I just had to.
ZOYA NAIL POLISH is having a special. Promoting the whole GO GREEN movement. Which I LOVE! I think it is a great idea and not for nothing, I did not really think that OLD NAIL POLISH could be re-used. Well that goes to show you  that you learn something new everyday.

*Below I will provide the picture && link to the website. Please check out their large quantity color selection. What do you think of them? Me?......THEY ARE FRIKKEN FANTABULOUS! I placed an order for 6 colors && should be recieving them on Monday. As soon as they arrive I will be doing a review and taking photos of how each NAILPOLISH color looks on me. *SQUEAKS* I am extremely excited....because I love cosmetics/nail polish like UBER much and because this I supposed will be my first reiew on a beauty product.
CLICK ON THE LINK, LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
OH YES BELOW A I POSTED A PICTURE OF HOW MY NAILS LOOK, CHIPPED NAILPOLISH AND ALL :)

Hello Kitty-Wish List

I was on the SANRIO website. I have been so busy in life, my plate is full and there is not a moment I am not busy with something. *sigh* But last night was browsing on their site and my eyes lit up. So below are the following items I want from the SANRIO website and are
HELLO KITTY. A girl can dream can't she? LOL. *sigh* When I have free time on my hands I promise myself I am going to go on a HELLO KITTY shopping spree. Growing up in Elementry School, Middle School and part of my High School years I was obsessed with HELLO KITTY. I had wallers, stickers, organizers, pens, pencils, erasers, folders, bags, mirros etc. I still managed to salvage my favorite HELLO KITTY mirror from High School. Time to get back in the groove of my HELLO KITTY collection. Below are the items that I want. I deserve them with all the hard work that I do everyday :)

NEEF FRESH; GET FAMILIAR

Okay so after a few minutes of a mind battle with myself [corny I know] I finally decided what to blog about. It's rare that I come across such humble, gifted kind hearted individuals. I think about two years ago I found a lovely lady on myspace and requested her. Let me rephrase before those with twisted minds assume something. I requested her because of her work, she is a photograp[HER]. I've allways loved and appreciated The Arts from a child till even now. Arts revolve around many various ways of expression. As I consider myself an artistic invidual I have done lyrical dancing when I was younger, there was a point where I did Fashion Design when I attend Fashion Industries High School, then I began to develop a love/passion for writing. It is my therapy, the one thing besides God that I can pour my heart into. But enough about me .....this entry is not about me PERIOD.

So to continue on, I came across the lovely NEEF FRESH. Now if you have not heard of her or seen her work , well....all I have to say is "Have you been living under a rock!?" Her photos, the quality, the contrast, the editing, the scenery, the clothing attire, the make-up, the hair styles ...I mean everything in her photo's are equisite. I mean I am dead serious, so serious that tonight I was telling a friend about this photographer, he did not believe me , so I told him she is on modelmayehem. He checked out the photo's and all he kept saying was "Omg.........*silence* Omg.....*silence*.....Yo Cyn this shit is on point like she is nasty with it, damn yo this shit should be in the magazines!" Of course in my head I was gloating saying told you so, but I told him I know her photos should be in fashion magazines.

Not only is her work amazing, but unlike other artist's who are most of the time down right cocky, stuck-up, arrogant and full of themselves and I can keep on, NEEF FRESH is far from having any of those negative qualities. I mean she and I are not best friends, but I am a fan of her work and have been for the past two years, allways reading her updates on Myspace, Facebook...Twitter. And she is just extremely AWESOME. She is such a wise, caring, humble, devoted, hard working young woman. Drive and determined to get where she wants to be in life. She has the confidence and believes in herself. All these things I truely from the bottom of my heart admire. One day....I keep telling myself...one day I will have professional photos taken for the first time and when I do, she is the one I am going to. And I say one day because times is hard, we in that recession ....ya figadeal what im sayin right? LOL. And when a few other things get into order in my life. I currently have been working on some things for a while. My womans focus group, theatre/drama, I am part of the worship minsitry and church and sing, hopefully an upcoming clothing line in the future and hopefully...to write a book preferably a Memoir.

I admire people with such passion and often find myself seeking people like that to obtain friendship, because I feel I can connect more with them than what others can. Not everyone is born with the gift of being an artist. Everyone is great at something just not everyone is great in the arts.

I really hope to see her work in magazines one day, I hope to have my photos taken by NEED FRESH one day as well. And I hope her next project as she has mentioned on her facebook all works out as planned. I'm just a loving person at heart so when I do things its because I want to, I don't mind. So I know I willbe praying for NEEF FRESH, she needs to make it, she needs to get where she wants to get. Because she will be a symbol for me as well as to others that dreams really do come true as long as you work hard and never give up. She gives me hope that with some hard work my dreams and my aspirations will take flight.

NEEF FRESH if you read this ever, just know I know there are haters out there but that is normal lol. But I'm not a groupie [they are becoming popular in the internet world now (-_-) ] , not someone seeking recognition for anything or trying to gain some type of spotlight from you. I see that alot and quite frankly its sad. But just know I have been a fan of your work and will continue to remain a fan. I am looking foward to the new things that you will be working on. Keep being yourself, keep creating, keep bringing beauty and esssence alive in people's photos....just keep pressing on. As I said in my tweet to you [ @cyndy_monroe] this woman right here is the bomb.











No I will not give out her Facebook, No I will not give out her myspace and No I will not give out her twitter. LOL
But you can check her out here.

Please check out her work here. The link will be provided below:

Willow Smith

Will and Jada-Pinkett Smiths daughter , Willow Smith. Adorable. Unlike other celebrity "brats" as I call them because that is how some celebritys raise their children to be, from reading the article she makes her own money. There is nothing raunchy about the picture thank God. I think she looks adorable; such a little fashionista. I say allow children to be creative as long as it is not vulgar and they are not being exploited in a sexual manner. She looks like a little mini- Rihanna. I just hope she grows up with the same respect and morals her parents have. People are putting so much emphasis on the little girls haircut. Please explain to me the wrong doing in this. She is not bald, leave the little girl alone hair grows back. Now what people should be making a big stink of is the 7 year old girls dancing raunchy to Beyonce's single ladies and to the new youtube sensation Baby Gaga-Telephone Parody of a 3 year old little girl. 


An Interview With the Guy Skewering BP on Twitter

Well you have a mystery person who has created a twitter account , putting BP in the spotlight, putting them on blast. Does #bpcare like he types in his tweets? Because of his outrage towards BP and the need to have the public aware of information and the truth, he has now raised $10,000 selling his BP CARES t-shirts which is going to be donated to The Gulf Restoration and another donation will be made soon by him.

Bodies With Hearts Cut Out Found in Mexican Cave Outside Cancun - AOL News

You know I get people telling me things like why am I being so negative, emo, why I choose to live in fear and all this other garbage. You wanna live in your carefree world where everything is candy canes unicorns and rainbows?! Be my guest. I like to read up on articles watch the news and be aware of what is going on the world. That way when you guys try to debate with me Im the one with more knowledge.

For those of you who want to go to vacation in Mexico and party it up in Cancun on spring break? Enjoy this article and see if you still want to go party over there. The Devil is alive people, he is out there and manipulating those who are lost in the world. Do not be fooled, do not take part in the pleasures of the world.

World Premiere Lady Gaga's Alejandro




I have allways liked the song, but the video is just nuts. I love the fashion but everything else was a bit too much for me? I mean she is bold and daring and I love and respect that. But for me too much. It sort of reminds me of Madonna's Vogue, Like a Prayer and La Isla Bonita mixed with Hitler and Nazis. Idk, the black bowl hair cuts the men are wearing and the star of david and the cross. Not to meantion that uniforms along side the whips and leather. I think I will just stick to listening to it on my ipod lol. Still love Lady Gaga though.

Baby Gaga Debate



There is alot I can say, alot but all in all I do not condone this. There are not enough words to express my disgust. I just can not. Let little girls be little girls instill morals and virtues upon them , teach them true beauty. This makes me sad.

Growing Up Puerto Rican.

It was either I was such a Puerto Rican or such a white girl. And the only reason I was ever referred to as a blankita is because spanish was never taught to me therefor I can not hold a conversation. But oddly I can , read, write and understand it. Strange Right???

But you nor I can not deny this....being a Boriqua from The Lower East of Manhattan NY will stay with you forever. You remember the "pow-pows"? Or how about your parents or older siblings warning you that if you continue not to listen El Cuco was going to get you! How about going to relatives houses I mean like your elders....especially an aunts house and the couches were covered all in plastic. I am such you hispanics out there reading this can relate! The summer time would be so hot they need to take a spatula to peel you off that plastic couch. How about the piraguas.....LEMON my favorite. How about kneeling down on dry rice when you got into trouble. You and all your relatives cramming on one bed or in one room. The Latin Freestlye, THE BEST! How about Xuxa and Sabado Gigante y Walter Mercado, Ese hombre es real loco. Echo de menos ser un niño

But let me tell you I was allways getting in trouble so my father would hit me with the belt or chancleta. That was a normal thing in my family though lol.
Some of the memories of growing up Puerto Rican. Funny as I look back.

Relationships/Dating Life/Men

Why is it that I come across the same type of men. And no its not that I am out searching for a man because I am not. But most men I deal with allways get upset and throw a hissy fit. Yes you men out there PMS, just accept it and get over it allready. I know a few men in my life, well not few but alot of men who PMS. I'm just going to buy them a big bag full of tampons, pamprin and chocolate (-_-)

So why is it these three words allways comes out of a guys mouth. Thats how they insult females to feel better about themselves I guess? The words "fat, slut or bitch" allways comes out a guys mouth.  And thats all really I ever hear. But at least for me...if I really want to walk down that road, I can surely insult you with out being so feeble minded. Sheesh* I don't know it was something that I thought about yesterday and today. Has that ever happened to you, or am I just bugging out?

Family Teaching;Church Service 6-6-2010

Today was the finishing teaching of the Family Teaching Series that Pastor Marcos Rivera was preaching about on Weds. and Sundays. His teachings allways move me and stir my spirit. But today....today gave me hope.

I have been single now for almost 5 years. I was in a destructive abusive 5 year relationship with my High School Sweetheart *side note he was not sweet at all* More like a rottentart. When I finally asked God for the courage I walked away and never looked back. Two years of being single was extremely lonely for me, daily it was a struggle. Because during those 5 years with him I lost myself along the way. Thus I began my journey in self-discovery. And I am proud to say that today I am happily single by choice until God says otherwise. I know who I am, I have an identity. I am a daughter of the most High God. I've re-invented myself, discovered passions in life that I had no idea even existed in me. I can finally say that I am happy.

Today Pastor spoke about the following: Singleness, Marriage, Divorce and Re-Marriage.
Today in this day and age marriages all over are falling apart, driving people to insanity and peform unspeakable acts. But as believers we should and we need to stand firm on the authority of the word. The only perfect model of what Family should be like is in The Bible according to God.

Divorce. Sounds completely normal when it rolls of your tongue, I mean we don't cringe and gasp do we? No, its a normal thing. But the meaning is a legal term invented by man not by God. In the media divorce and re-marraige is openly spoken about and done; not just once or twice sometimes even five times. Its worn almost as a badge of honor, its permissive. Is this what we have come to? Is this what we plan on demonstrating and teaching to the next generation? Our children?! Divorce is run by the courts but never by church. Think about it for a second......when people are head over heels in love with eachother they run to the nearest church to get married but run as quick as possible to the courts for a divorce.

Why make such hasty decisions though? Is the serious of this sacred covenent not of any importance to some people? When two individuals decide to get married you are taken a sacred vow , a most valuable and precious convenent before God and the church congregation. "For better or for worse, till death do you part". That is a holy promise to God. But everyone is quick to result to termination of their marriage.

The worlds systems want us to stay bound but we need to let go and let God remove the shackles that hinder us. In fact everything you want and need to know about singleness , marriage, divorce and re-marriage is The Bible. A couple is one unit remember that.

So I learned today that marriage was not the first institution but rather singleness. Adamn was created first, there was a time where he was alone. God saw that he was alone and thought it is good for man to have company. So that is where he created Ever, bone of my bone flesh of my flesh. Eve was formed from the rib not to be spoken down to but to be looked upon as an equal, his other half.

If you are single ...STOP I repeat STOP viewing it as a curse. Praise God be thankful! This is the time to take care of ourselves and beautify ourselves. When you see a single man or woman who actually values and takes care of themselves, you see them joyful and content with themselves and life , its a major attraction. I mean seriously what man or woman is going to want a Debbie Downer all the time. Someone who is allways depressed and negative, a person like that how can they love anyone else? Those are the people you need to stay away from because they are still carrying the pain and hurt from a previous relationship. Thats noa burden you wish to carry because whether you choose to accept it or not if someone has not let go of their past, you will end up paying for the previous persons mistakes. And that is not fair. Stop being in such a rush to find love and get married. Keep in mind this...if anyone is ever going threw a situation like this, God hates divorce. Hate is an extremely strong and powerful word. And God clearly states in his word that he HATES divorce. But under certain circumstances God will pardon it and its simple. If he is abusing you in any way shape or form you have the God given right, not man, not court,not society but God given right to divorce him/her. And if he is unfaithful...but listen carefully lets not jump to conclusions now. Yes your husband or wife has been unfaithful. But is that enough to divorce them right away? Don't react on plain emotion. Of course your going to be hurt amd angry, but stop think about it, pray about it. For people of strong faith and are dealing with an spouse who is unfaithful about 90% will remain married and not go threw with divorce. Why? Because they choose to stick it out and make it work. They choose to forgive. Nothing makes us more like God than when we choose to forgive someone who has hurt us. And those are the only instances really.

Belowe are some scripture verses to look up if you want to study more on this topic.
Read allow yourself to recieve blessing from the text of the bible.

-Malachi 2:16
-Matthew 19:6

Happily Ever After

On May 29th two very wonderful friends of mine got married. It was a beautiful tearful ceremony and the reception was tons of fun. The bride I was introduced to about 3 almost 4 years ago. She has been nothing but a doll. Although older than him by 3 years they complimen eachoter so well. I have been given the pleasure of developing a wonderful friendship with her and in my eyes she has become the older sister I have allways dreamed of having. The groom is my childhood bestfriend. Our families have been friends since he and were in P.S 110. Our families have went on vacation several times together as well. He has allways been like a brother to me. We even fight like siblings lol. But I thank God for him. He has allways been there for me even if we had not spoken in a year or months. If I ever needed anything, if I was hurt sick or in trouble. He was there. I pray that God blesses every corner every area of their marriage. Here are pictures of my wonderful friends The Noa's.
