Happy Thursday lovely IG friends! What’s the most amazing trip you’ve ever done? I had this amazing one-time opportunity to visit a few Middle East countries and Dubai was one of my favorites. I mean I was amazed by all of them but Dubai just has something special in my opinion. This place was my favorite, by the beach and with the Burj Al Arab hotel behind us was just surreal! My girl was just about 20 months old and I can’t help it but I just love this photo and all the emotions en feeling that it brings me every time I see it. .
Just wanted to share with you a quick throwback Thursday since this memory means a lot to us and in case you were wondering about places to visit! .

Today that I’ve been so focused on my bedroom decor while I was looking at it I felt a little nostalgic. I miss my old headboard so much. I made it while I was living in Colombia and it’s been my favorite wood piece I’ve ever done. It was so simple and yet it felt perfect. I tried a new version here and even though a like it is nowhere near my old one. Maybe it’s because it’s not completely done, I’ll show you when it’s finished and see how I feel about it! .
For now I’m really excited about finally setting my mind to decorate and work on our master bedroom!!! Woot!!! .
Your turn my friend! Have you had to re-do a project but didn’t quite end up like the first one? .

Happy Tuesday everyone! As you may (or may no 🤪) know, I’m in the process of decorating each space of my home starting with my bedroom and then moving on to each room. I’ve been making things here and there and it feels so good to see home coming together even if it’s slowly (like really slowly 🙈). Living room is halfway there. Still needs the decor part but here is the thing... and I will so appreciate your input in this. I plan my decor design I set my mind to it and then when I go shopping for the supplies I get so overwhelmed that I get blocked. I get scared with tons of “what if’s” that I end up buying nothing. What if the color is not the right one, what if I don’t like how the shelves look, what if I spend the money and then I don’t like the result, and so on and on. .
I have my dreamed bedroom in my mind but it’s not clear because it seems like I like way too many things and all that won’t fit in this tiny bedroom lol. .
Has this happened to you with a project? What would you do?

Father’s Day will be here in no time! At the rate time is flying by, if we wink too long, it will be Christmas already lol 🤪. .
Are you planing any special gift for Father’s Day? I’ve been brainstorming some cute ideas but I haven’t decided anything yet! This homemade pencil holder was our gift for daddy a couple years ago and I still love it so much. It reflects different special moments for us as family so he would keep in in his office. Sometimes the smallest details shows the biggest kind of love. This year I’ll have to be more creative!!!!
.
How about you? Any ideas yet??? Mind to share???

Happy Sunday friends! I was thinking and I don’t think I have properly introduced myself so I thought it’d be fun to share 12 random facts about myself for anyone new around here! 
1. I was only child until I was 22 when my little brother came along.
2. I was born in Brazil, raised in (different cities in) Venezuela and now living in Spain (after living in about 4 different countries).
3. I speak 3 languages: Spanish, Portuguese and English. Although I wish I had time to learn more.
4. I’m 5’ 4” (1,63 mt) being the shortest in my family. Beware of your recessive genes!
5. I have a degree in Graphic design and over 10 year experience in Advertising agencies until we left our home country. I turned my profession into an important part of my blogging business.
6. I’ve had the chance to travel to many countries and amazing cities around the world, hoping to travel more.
7. I’m starting my home from scratch (we rented an unfurnished apartment) hoping I can get that gorgeous and cozy modern farmhouse look I’m so crazy in love with.
8. #7 is making me obsessed about home decor.
9. I got married 9 years ago after almost 4 years dating and we have a 6 years old girl.
10. I’ve been crafty since I can remember. I would always make stuff myself when I couldn’t afford them, which was most of the times. Blogging has been my outlet so I could take my skill to the next level and share with others.
11. I’m very intimidated by being in front of the camera unless it’s like natural family fun photos. So everything you see here on my Instagram where I’m in the photo it’s a work in progress specially live, stories and videos. This photo is like a huge step LOL. There are more to come.
12. I absolutely LOVE connecting, I get so excited when I receive messages, comments, questions or opinions. It makes my day and I reply with such great pleasure. So, feel free to speak your mind, I’ll reply, support or help in any way I can. Connecting is like my getaway.
.
Now it's your turn my friends! Would love to learn something about you!

Happy Saturday!!! This little girl is about to finish first grade! When did that happen? It feel like until yesterday she was my baby girl. Now she’s her own person with such personality. She always cracks me up with her reasoning about daily stuff and the ability she has to come up with those clever answers that leaves me powerless. .
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to accept she’s not a baby anymore. Of course I know she’s growing up and all but she’ll always be my baby girl. .
Does this feeling hits you too? How many kids do you have and how old are they???

There’s just something about pillows that makes everything look warm and cozy. Ever since I can remember a sofa or a bed is not complete if there’s no throw pillows or cushion pillows. I can’t think of a good reason why I procrastinated so much making these cuties! But I’m soooo happy I finally made them! .
How about you? Do you like pillows? How many do you usually put on you sofa?

Good morning friends! I was wondering, do you have those special things you feel very much attached to? I definitely have some. Usually those are not bought by me but given to me or handmade. My girl got this cute sheep from my sister when she was a newborn. Somehow she got really attached to it even though she has lots of other stuffed toys. She takes it everywhere, sleeps with it, it’s like her special best friend. I too have some things that I never left behind and most of them have been given the me so I live them dearly not because the object itself but because it holds memories and emotions. Like that duvet cover right there, I handmade it as a friend ft for my girl and it’s still her favorite. I don’t think I’d give it easy ever lol.
.
How about you? Are there special things you will keep as long as you can?

Hello there! Happy Monday. How’s your vibe today?
.
I’m having a hard time getting back on track. Even though I have tons of things on my list and so many ideas to turn into finished projects time is just not helping. I think that maybe having so much I want to do makes kind of freeze. But ok, let’s say it’s because I was extra spoiled over the weekend with way too much love and I liked it  lol. I know, I know, I have a bedroom to decorate, right?
