It’s a “Havenly” home

Hey lovies,
How is the spring treating you? It’s my first spring in the U.S and i don’t know if i am a fan or not. Anyways, i have been battling with the urge to get my own place and i always fantasize about what it would look like. I love so many items and different styles so, i can never really stick with one style for a long time. Ergo, decor dilemma. But, i figured if i had to pick items that represent me, then this is what it would look like. Enjoy
My future
I love simple yet strong pieces because it represents my personality and i have a unique character that changes all the time, maybe that’s why i can’t settle on just one style. Hmmm. lol. I love meaningful quotes and chic accessories, so i have to have those and the most important is the couch because i am a couch potato and i love to write/read or binge watch shows on Netflix/cable. It was on one of my couch potato days that i came across Havenly whilst browsing the internet. I think they idea behind it is AMAZING and totally genius. It’s a great way to connect designers and decorators with potential or returning clients.

Interior Design Bucketlist

Hey lovies,

I am super happy that Spring is finally here in New York. Sun is out, flowers are in bloom and i couldn’t ask for much right now except i have been thinking about moving into a new place and for me, that means change and change means “it’s time for some shopping”. I have a few ideas on my bucketlist of what i would like to get for my dream living room if i had an unlimited budget and i want to share that you guys. Enjoy.

  Charles Pfister 3-seat sofa for knoll     Fully restored pair of 1950s italian lounge chairs by Gigi Radice for Minotti

Karl Springer Bronze base pouf ottoman    Chenille and Linen pillow with a bright ikat motif design

Custom Edward Field deco style rug (13x13 ft)     Roger Sprunger-style brass and glass coffee table by tri-mark

Eero Saarinen for Knoll cast iron tulip tables    Italian ceramic bowl

Beaded floral wall sculpture    Bertil Brisborg extra large white plexiglass swirl wall lamps

Rare 3-arm floor lap by Stilnovo    Sputnik Chandelier with 24 shades

I love to combine bright and neutral colors with chic contemporary furnishing and interesting accents. I love throw pillows with graphic prints because they add something different that you can switch out anytime. I don’t know about you but i love  round tables because i don’t have to worry about sharp edges. lol. I am a reader and i love to be comfortable when i have a good book so, comfortable chairs and putting my feet up is a no brainer.

Designing my dream space is something i find interesting and complicated at the same time because i am always craving something different and unique, just like me. Good thing i found the perfect site that has everything i need at my finger tips. Decaso is the perfect place where you can go to get your interior design dreams fulfilled.


Cleaning for Spring…

Hi lovies,

Spring is here! says every calendar possible since the 20th but that’s not the case in New York City. As over the cold as i am, these extra winter weeks is giving me more time to prepare for Spring. Yay! It’s time for some major spring cleaning and i am looking forward to it. Any reason to do some shopping is always welcome. lol. I can’t wait to put away all that extra-thick and heavy blankets, bulky winter jackets, wool pjs, take off the A.C covers, etc. I am looking forward to brighten up my space with spring scents, extra throw pillows, bright fabrics in neutral and pastel tones, and a whole new “spring-fied” wardrobe. Now, that’s more like it. I consider myself to be pretty ok at re-decorating so, let me show you some “spring-spiration” ideas on how i plan to “spring-fy” my space. Enjoy..

I definitely want to start with flipping over my mattress. Speaking of mattress, i am thinking of getting a new one and i was doing some on-line recon and i genuinely fell in love with Leesa ArtLifting limited edition mattress. I love the mattress cover. Its different and unique. Now, my mattress is already in front of the window and if i move it any closer, i might as well be out the window. lol.


I just got this and i can’t wait to use it. It’s so spring and it smells really enticing and really fun so much so, that i couldn’t wait for spring. lol

I love the floral designs, pastel comforter and sheer curtains. I love the little reminders of spring in the throw pillows and the sheerness of the curtain, that allows in that beautiful morning sunshine and i love to look out my window because the view is not so bad. Last but not the least, is a vase full of flowers. Everybody needs some flowers. lol



Holiday Wish-list: Love me, AdoreMe

Hey lovies,

Happy Holidays, guys! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s the time to get super cozy and comfy but definitely, still sexy. I am all for throwing on my most comfortable pjs and robe, get under the covers and binge watch amazing holiday movies with a cup of hot tea and cookies.

Well, that is my usual winter holiday activity but sometimes, i do love to go to one or two holiday parties and have a really good time with friends. With that said, i am not just about looking sexy but i love to feel sexy and whatever lingerie i wear also, counts for how high my holiday spirit is going to be because you know, you gotta feel comfortable to have the most fun. lol

I am the kind of girl that likes to make a statement when i walk into a room and nothing screams statement, like an all red outfit. You would think that the fact that i am 6ft tall would be enough but hey! What’s a girl to do? lol

The holiday season is all about family, friends, love, the joy of giving and reflecting on all the things that have happened all year but, it’s also the time to relax, reflect and have some good ol’ fun whilst still keeping up to date on what’s sexy and cozy. lol.

Happy Holidays, lovies!


Classic car, Nature & a Date

Hey lovies,

Happy post- thanksgiving, sweethearts! I hope you had a wonderful time with all the left overs and the Black Friday shopping. I had way too much fun shopping and what a haul (lol). I think i have had enough retail therapy to last me a while.*wheew*. Anyways, before i get carried away (lol), you are probably wondering what i am talking about, right? Well, it’s all about how i would like to spend my perfect date day. I have always thought about what i would like to do on my perfect date and the truth is, most of the time we just want to either go to a restaurant or eat-in. I’m not knocking down that idea because, ideas of a perfect date differ according to the individual but i like an adventurous date. lol. Well, continue reading and i will tell you about what i would want in a perfect date.

I have always love the idea of a nice 2-day road drive through the country-side in the summer, a few stops along the way to visit tourist sites, take in amazing scenes and spend a night at a nice B&B, then back home the next day. So, surfing through the net looking for inspiration, i came across different car hire services but Turo stood out. Turo is a car-hire service, where you can put your car up for hire and get paid, rent a car, etc. What they offer is perfect for what you need for a nice ride to your destination, if you don’t want to use your private car and you want something different. I love how car owners get to meet with the renters prior to, and even deliver the car to any location you want, if possible. With Turo , you are covered, safe and most definitely not alone.

I have a degree in Tourism management, so i have always been a sucker for the beauty that is nature and, taking a ride through the countryside is always a joy for a tourist like me. Beautiful classic convertible, sun in your face, hair in the wind, your date by your side, nature’s beauty flashing by; what more can you ask for? lol




There is nothing more beautiful than spending quality and quiet time with somebody you care about, either indoors or outdoors and for me, I’ll take both. lol.


The Magic of Undershirts

Hey lovies,

How’s it going? It’s been a long minute. Alot has been going on and trying to juggle business school and moving to the U.S hasn’t been a slice of cake and a cup of tea but i am surviving. lol. It’s been quite a roller coaster but that is not why we are here. So, I got hit with the idea of “The Magic of the Undershirts” and i decided it something i need to share with you.


Undershirt 101 – Something every man should know

The undershirt is an essential part of any outfit. It’s like having a really great body but bad posture. Anyways, Fall season is here and, Winter is literally around the corner. It’s all about layering up and we need all the heat we can get and still feel comfortable. There is no better time to stock up on undershirts than right now and, Tommy John has got you covered, because they care about your comfort and helping you feel good.

I know sometimes, it can seem uncomfortable with so many clothes on but Tommy John Undershirts are so comfortable, cool and lightweight, you can barely feel the extra clothing. I usually get cold quickly and my body tends to retain the cold for a while even after i get in a warm environment so, i am always about layering up. If you are just like me, then i guess undershirts are for you. The fact that undershirts protects your outerwear from armpit stains, helps your dress shirts fit better, whilst giving you that neat and clean look, that already is a no brainer. In the spirit of the season, below are a few of my Fall essentials;

Undershirts are one of the best things to have not just during the fall or winter season but all year round. You can never go wrong with the right undershirt so, i say, “Believe in the magic”..

NB: Undershirts are not t-shirts


Chairish me a Coffee table

Hey lovies,
What’s been happening? It’s been a minute but i am back with a new obsession and it’s basically all about Coffee tables essentials. A Coffee table is like a ‘Princess in a castle’. If she’s pretty, the castle looks really inviting but, if she isn’t….well, you know what happens. Coffee tables are important to every living room, and since they take center stage, they should be treated with utmost importance. So, i was given the opportunity to write about coffee tables essentials by an amazing company called CHAIRISH. Looking through their site, i was inspired by quite a lot of things i saw. Below are essentials of what i think should be on any coffee table.
Charish me a Coffee table


Coffee tables differ in shapes, sizes and also, when it comes to decorating your coffee table, personal style plays a huge part in what the outcome will look like but that been said, there are basic essentials that every coffee table needs, to add life to a living room but finding the right coffee table is the first most essential part of your decor journey. My style is a combination of chic, simple, artsy and intricate. I like simple decor but with pieces that add uniqueness and character.

I think every coffee table deserves a fresh bouquet of beautiful flowers. I love flowers that are bright, and delicate with subtle fragrance to add freshness and beauty. And with the vast variety of flowers in the world, you can’t run short of choices. Books are another essential i think coffee tables need because it adds a level of intellectual character and it could also serve as a form of entertainment. A stack of books ranging from antique to modern, from fashion to inspirational to cooking books is needed because you never know.

I love the idea of a decorative box because it adds character and mystery especially when they are unique, intricate or just plain beautiful pieces. It can also, serve as a storage box to hold anything from keys to other miniature objects/trinkets. I also, love candle holders and scented candles especially candles with soothing scents that keeps you calm and at peace. Candles come in different shapes, sizes and scents so finding the right one that works is just as important. Another essentials are quirky objects/figurines. It could be animals, a praying Buddha, a dancing lady, or just a random object.

I chairish a well placed and decorated coffee table and i think every living room needs one.
