Its a SkinnyPop Summer

Hey lovies,

How is your summer going? Mine has been very interesting and filled with adventures i wouldn’t normally take but this is the summer of adventures for me so, i am doing it all. It’s been a perfect summer so far and i wouldn’t change it for any reason. As perfect has this summer has been, it’s only better with the right party refreshments either for a picnic, a day at the beach or party with friends.

Any one that knows me, knows that i am a sucker for a large bowl of hot, sweet and crisp popcorn and a glass of chilled sweet cocktail but i have never really thought popcorn and cocktails would make a great pair until i came across this popcorn and cocktail pairing graphics from SkinnyPop Popcorn.

Doesn’t that look delicious? Makes you want to find out how accurate the pairs are. I don’t know about you but i aim to find out. If i had to pick my favorite pair, it would be naturally sweet and white peach sangria because i have a major sweet tooth. I might also be inclined to try Moscow mule and original pair but that blueberry mojito sounds heavenly. lol. What about you?

The best part is, SkinnyPop popcorn is not just delicious but also healthy so, you can faithfully indulge without worries and if you are just like me, living that #fitfam life then this is definitely a life saving guilty pleasure. Now, get up off your couch or get on the internet and order your own skinnypop popcorn and let the snackin’ begin.

Have a poppin’ summer.

Double C’ Bedroom

Hey lovies,
How is your summer going? I have been having a bit of a swell time because i have been on a mini tour around the U.S for work but i do try to carve out time for fun. Horrible thing is, i forget to take pictures. Who does that? I ‘ll tell you. ME! Anyways, i have been playing around with different decor ideas and here is my latest one. Enjoy.

As my readers know, i usually go for clean and modern style with a touch of color and prints. And i love that floor to ceiling windows as it was something i fell in love with on one of my many summer trips to D.C because of the accommodation i rented.I am thinking of switching up a bit, what do you think?

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.

XOXO..

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.
