IMATS 2011 Pasadena

Thank you for everyone that sent me pictures via email!! It was a pleasure to be able to hug and talk face to face with you all!!
Enjoy my pictures!

(Above) Jazziebabycakes. I just adore HER.

Having lunch with my lil sisters, Judy, Dulce and Heather.

If your picture was in this post, I'd like to thank you for coming up to me and not being shy. I have gotten so many comments and emails saying that they were too shy. Like "DAMN" am I that scary? You all should know by now that I am the last person to be shy in front of.


DISNEYLAND w my youtubes finest..

Thursday June 23, 2011
The Thursday before IMATS, we all decided to take a trip to Disneyland! I stayed with Jarmaine (Jlovesmac1) on Wednesday when I arrived into town... Then with Benji and Judy (itsjudytime) the duration of my trip. Of course it only made sense to all get together and enjoy a day at the happiest place on earth!!

Space Mountain

Jarmaine and some sweets

Andrea (andreaschoice) and her pretty face.

The life of a youtuber.. Always on camera.

Split up at the line.

Youtubes power couple.

How awesome that Suzy (macnc40) Josh (petrilude) Jasmine (jazziebabycakes) and Leesha (xsparkage) decided to go to disneyland the same day we did!

Hanging out with all of these people is an experience like no other. I have followed Josh and Leesha since day one of me making videos and here we are, 2/3 years later. Suzy and I have been in touch since day one as well. This was the first time me meeting Jasmine and I immediately felt all fuzzy and warm with that smile of hers! I am so grateful for Youtube and the connections that it creates. We all live in different parts of the country. It's the life of this whole ordeal. But I think I can speak for all of you when you feel like these favorites are all close since we can watch them anytime! These people are what you see in their videos. Genuine people. Appreciate all the time and work that they put into videos for us! I hope you enjoyed my little photo diary of Disneyland with these familiar faces!!

Personal Post: Happy Father's Day.


This is just a little summin summin to honor family. I know some of us only take designated days to celebrate, but maybe we should be more aware of what's really up. I am a mother and a father to my children. Who says there needs to be 2 parental figures thou? Especially when I play both roles. On the same token, every child needs both female and male figure for the ideal balance. Either way, Much Love to you and yours. I love my kids who I raise myself and my big pops for always being there for me. I have been such a roller coaster and he is still there to say "Everything will always be OK mija" Good lookin out dad..

You mess with Riss and you get this. My pops in a nutshell. Chillin w a beer in hand.

Thanks for reading. I'll get back to doing more related posts. Just getting a little personal lately. "VEGAS TOURIST" post and some "MAKE UP" post due soon.

I am so excited to share this experience with you all. I had such a great time in NYC! So much, that I'm pretty sure that a part of RissRose is still there. Although I was only there for a short span of 2 nights, I did enough to cover a week. This was my second trip to NY. I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE. For more than one reason of course! So much visual stimulation! I couldn't get enough. I can't wait to go back!

Enjoy my view..

I stayed at The Standard in the meat packing district. SO DOPE.

Outside my hotel.

The view from 7 floors up. I was waving at the people walking and they were waving back! This hotel is known for that. I could be naked and everyone would be able to see! HAHA!

I must have this RISSROSE loveseat!

From Jun 17, 2011
Shopping at BBC. I shoulda taken a pic of the ice cream sandwich seat i was sitting on!

Friendship bracelets from LINKS

If you follow me on twitter, you'll recognize this pic. My first pair of red bottoms. I LOVE SHOES. I can't help it. They almost make me as happy as food does...

Little snack in the spot downstairs of The Standard. Tomato soup and of course a skinny b*tch. (My drink of choice. Bacardi/diet. No carbs. No calories)

Although it was drizzling outside, I curled my hair. This was me right before my first BROADWAY SHOW.

In a cab ride to see Billy Elliot on Broadway. I rocked my Jeffery Campbell shoes that I got from They are so comfy although they don't look like it.

Smile for the camera!

These kids were like 10 years old and stars of the show. I was really inspired by this production. Kids on Broadway. My first show and I was blown away!

Food+view+great company= Happy RissRose

The Standard Grill on my last day...

Tried to focus on the fries, but that didn't really go as planned. But still a good pic! HAHA

SPA DAY! Flight didn't leave till late, So I was spoiled with a massage. This was at Soho NY boutique hotel since The Standard didn't have a spa. I had the best time in NY and was so grateful to experience these fruits..

After spa, headed to Central Park. I had never been before, so I was so excited! Cab rides were the best!! Lots of laughs in those cab rides...

My favorite pic! This was in the middle of the Puerto Rican parade. Never seen sooo much booty in my life!

I have so many more pics, but this post took forever!! LOL Traveling is so satisfying! I never traveled before in my life. I don't even have a passport. I'm afraid to get one honestly. Serious. I don't think I'd ever come home. I'd take the kids just to see the world and probably end up in the Phillipines with my Nana and be a beach bumb. HAHA.

Anywho, I hope you enjoyed my pictures. Once again I am happy to share this life experience. NY had so much to look at and I had the most wonderful time. Lots of food! I think I packed on some LBS while I was there, my uniform was snug when I got back.
