Last summer I shared a post about a very special tradition my sister and I started in 2011. It’s called Sister Day. Sister Day is meant for us to spend quality time together with no interruptions. We plan a full day of activities but not just anything it has to be something fun that we wouldn’t want to experience with anyone else but each other. It’s typically on July 1st but with my sister getting married this past May and adjusting to her new life we had to postpone it a bit.
My sister moving out has been a huge adjustment since we were practically joint at the hip making this year’s Sister Day that much more special.
This year we went to a cute, tacky (in a good way), vintage tea house called Alice Tea Cup Chapter 1.
There’s a bunch of antique furniture that don’t quite match but somehow tie together so well giving a warm cozy feel. It almost feels like drinking tea at your grandmother’s house, such a cute little spot. If you live in NYC you must check it out. The food is delicious and there’s a wide variety of tea favors to choose from.
After tea we took a stroll to central park and rented a rowboat. It was the perfect touch for a relaxing afternoon. When we first got on it was hilarious we keep moving in the opposite direction and it seemed we were barely moving, eventually we got the hang of it. Our rowboat adventure lasted an hour.
Afterwards we sat in central park for a while eating out our doggy bag from Alice Tea Cup. It ended up being a beautiful and mellow sister day.
If you have a sibling you should definitely try this, it’s a beautiful way to bond.
Side-note: I tried styling my hair in a Mohawk and absolutely loved it. Since I was feeling afro-centric it was only right I wore my “Yo Amo Mi Pajon” t-shirt that day…

Hello pretties ❤
One way or another you ran into this page and so first I shall welcome you and introduce myself, I am Emily.
Rocking and loving my natural curly kinky hair has been quite a journey and many things have been learned and gained in the process. I love sharing my insight with those on the same journey. While natural hair care and beauty was the core that started this page so much more developed from it.
The best way to define myself and this page is a proud Afro-Latina of many virtues and interest. Creativity is really the root of it all; it drives my passion for fashion which in turn spiked my interest in sewing and exploring the fascinating world of a seamstress. “DIY projects” are my absolute favorite, from sewing to home decor to event designing, being able to visualize and create something from scratch and mere imagination is ultra-gratifying. On 2016 my sister and I started our dream business of event planning later adding a wide variation of handmade goods from aprons to custom party favors and much more. Our company name is Hannie's Decor. We choose the name as a way to commemorate my sister's beautiful babygirl who was born sleeping on July 2016. From such a pain surged a beautiful.
My prime goal is to inspire those who follow my journey. This is not an average hair/beauty/fashion page but rather a lifestyle page with personal life experiences advocating for self-love and acceptance, creativity (our minds are so unique, beautiful and capable of endless things if we just listen to it and follow our imagination), freedom/liberation of social norms and beauty standards, compassion and encouragement.
I hope my posts bring you joy and inspiration
