Most Memorable Moments of 2016

I cant believe it's almost a new year! I love looking though my camera roll and Instagram and seeing all the past memories from the previous year. 2016 was super eventful and I can't wait to see what 2017 brings us! Check out my most memorable moments below! I hope you all have a great New Years and I hope you all have the best start to 2017! 

1. Kaylene's Baptism 

It was important to my family and I that Kaylene was to be baptized into the Catholic faith. We had a huge celebration and it was so much fun!  

2. Getting Engaged 

On Valentines day Laurence proposed to me in front of most of my family and I was so surprised and did not expect it at all! 


We took a trip to LA with my cousins for a weekend and it was so much fun. IMATS was a makeup lovers dream! I got so much good stuff for a discounted price. 

4. Kaylene's Kidchella

For Kaylene's first birthday we threw her a Kidchella birthday party! We went all out with the decorations, had a face painter, a balloon maker and a cotton candy stand. All the kids had a great time and I have to admit I had a lot of fun! 

5. Kaylene's First Time at Disneyland 

We planned her first trip to Disneyland a couple month's before we went and she was 14 months old. I'm sure she wont remember it but she had so much fun and we can show her all the videos and pictures when she gets older. 

6. Launching Life of Kayla

For years, I wanted to start a blog and I finally bit the bullet this year and launched Life of Kayla! I am so proud of myself for keeping up with it. I am so happy that I have something so important to me that can inspire others. I can't wait to see what 2017 had lined up for me! Shoutout to ByStinaFaye for desining my entire blog! 

7. Kanye West Saint Pablo Tour 

Laurence got tickets for us to see Kanye West at the Oracle arena in Oakland, CA. It was honestly one of the best concerts I've been to! 

8. Meeting Desi Perkins and Katy (Lustrelux)

Laurence surprised me with tickets to Generation Beauty San Francisco and I was so excited to meet Desi and Katy! I stood in line for about 3 hours and it was all worth it! I have a post all about my Generation Beauty experience, check it out here

9. My 26th Birthday in Lake Tahoe 

For my birthday we decided to rent a cabin in South Lake Tahoe with my cousins and my closest friends. I had the time of my life! I felt so blessed to have the closets people to me to celebrate another great birthday!
