Cankles & Chola's

ORALE!


This was hot of the presses, for my "gangster" Christmas cards from a couple years ago!
And I'm not makin' fun, my Nana was born in East LA, and my great -great grandma was born in Chihuahua Mexico. I can make a mean plate of Enchiladas and homemade tortillas....(they may not all be perfect circles...ha ha ha)...

I have the most awesome CHOLA make-up look video I did last year, that I never edited...but when you see it...well, I'll just say it's going to be pretty awesome! It's got a lowrider bike, a real cholo in it, and I've got the most amazing eyebrows you've ever seen!!! ha ha ha

I love that the world is made up of different people, different colors, different recipes (ha ha ha)...my ethnicity is a bunch of things:
Mexican, Swedish, Danish, Irish, Native American, Spanish, English...and I'm sure some random other fun ones!
I love custom mixtures....whether it's make-up or nationalities! ha ha ha


CHECK OUT these awesome CHOLO / CHOLA accessories:



check out these awesome "chain" steering wheel, style earrings from HAN CHOLO, you can see more HAN CHOLO stuff at SURU in LA...
 
and now for my CANKLE...this was me at the doctor, right before i was about to pass out ( i had to stay late until I returned from green, back to normal color! ha ha ha.....all the sudden I started sweating, felt dizzy and like I was going to throw up.....ha ha....
my ankle got so swollen, it looked like a tree trunk, so i called my "TREE TRUNKLE"....ha ha ha

 and HAPPY NORMAL SIZE ANKLE DAY!!!

huge love, your kandee

Kandee I would like to try your enchiladas & tortillas even if they're not round. i would love to see the video of your chola look.

Michael said...

lean like a chola!!! I was going to get all chola-ed out today but I slept too late. Plus in this city... if you dress like that, you'd better be one lolol!!!!

I hope your leg feels better!!! I've passed out twice and it is HORRIBLE. the first time I was in the middle of best buy and I passed out... and I peed my pants. Lovely. I was soooo embarrassed, I cried on the way home and I was so scared. I was 11 weeks pregnant when that happened so i was so worried!!

Keeping you in my prayers!

Love you lots, Kandee!

OmG Kandee my mom is from Chihuahua as well as my brother, tho I can't really cook but my mommma and my grandma can.

I hope you feel better.

Anytime you have unusual swelling, discolouration, or abnormally high pain you should call or see your doctor. It is important to keep moving, even if it hurts. wiggle your toes move your ankle around without disrupting your cut too much, etc.

I don't want to scare you or make you think you have this, but it is possible to develop something called RSD from any kind of injury. If caught early it is easier to treat.

Feel better and keep smiling

Heal soon Kandee!

Amm about the 5 de mayo thing...
well, not mad or anything...

But as a mexican let me tell you that we dont like "cholos" or "cholas" very much... :/ in fact we dont like that stereotype, we kinda think like "man, is cause of people like you that some Americans think like that about us..."

So, we mexicans are not proud of "cholos" and "cholas" cause they usually are involved with drugs, gangs, killings, and other sad stuff.
Even the way they are dressed...(that might be a little too much but we dont like it though)

In fact a life in mexico city is not very different form a life in a big city in america.
I even have a friend that when i say to her "lets go to mexico" she says.. "oh no its a very big city!"
haha
I can even compare Mexico City with LA for example...
We dress like you would call "normal person", im even gettin into the dressed thing cause we dont like that stereotype really :/

oh btw i dont even know why is 5 de mayo a holiday or smthin haha

So.. just wanted you to know, not mad or anything :)

dont forget i love you!
Heal soon!

Pato said...

Oh! other thing, we dont pronounce/speak like they do! haha

<3 <3

Kandee, my great grandma was born in chihuahua Mexico too! Maybe we are distant relatives! Ha ha. Your positive attitude through your whole leg ordeal has been very inspiring. Feel better soon!

Happy Cinco de Mayo to you as well, Kandee! Don't worry my tortillas are never round either, LOL.

I hope you're healing fast and well. Take care, chica! :P

@ Pato, the chola post was nothing to do with cinco de mayo, it was just coincidental, and supposed to be funny, my family is from Mexico...I know the difference between cholo's and hispanic peeps, this was just meant to be funny....none of my family members are cholo's, but this was just funny, even my Mexican grama thought this picture was funny!
