Indeed it’s no secret that I share plenty of my personal life over at ‘Las Aventuras De Betzy‘ my youtube vlog channel. Not only is it much easier to vlog my day and simply upload to youtube, but also none of the stuff is relevant to ‘Betzys Makeup’. In the light of #DiaDeLosMuertos I wanted to share more about it this tradition I hold close to my heart. For this reason I thought it was the perfect time to share more about me. With this in mind I thought it would be cool to share how to make sugar skulls at home easy and affordable.

Despite not been able to head out to Mexicali on #DiaDeLosMuertos I wanted to visit the cemetery before November. As some of you may already know it’s been a year since I was first able to go back to my hometown in Mexico. Therefore I have not been able to visit my brothers grave in the past 10+ years. For this reason it meant a lot to be able to visit my brother. Given that my mother has gone alone many times. Needless to say it was such a nice experience been able to help and support my mother this day.
It is important to me and my family to hold #DiaDeLosMuertos close to our hearts. Most importantly we need to remember and celebrate those who are no longer with us. To have been able to bond as a family was priceless. As we both picked out colors, flowers and bows to decorate we imagined Jose Francisco looking down on us.
While this holiday is celebrated once a year we should remember our angels all the time. Like saying a prayer for them can make a difference. Coupled with remembering a memory spend with them can also help. In the hope that they can rest and peace while protecting us.
