I love faux flowers. Because they last longer. But I also love fresh flowers. And when I get my hands on roses from the supermarket, here’s how I create an arrangement! Question of the night: whats your favorite flower? Mine is the Hydrangea!
Sharing with you a still picture of my Formal Living room! If you had to describe it in one word, what would that word be?
Well friends, we have officially been in quarantine for about 59 days now. Crazy to think that just 2 months ago, we were going about life normally. I have my days where I’m all good, then I have my days where I hit a wall and I’m simply overwhelmed with this situation. I ask myself “how?”. Hard to believe that we would all be dealing with such a harsh reality in 2020. What brings me comfort is that I’m spending more time with my kids. As crazy as things can get, it’s such a blessing to be in the comfort of my home surrounded by love. Yes it gets crazy, I can’t ignore the fact that my heart is full. I’ve learned to appreciate the simple things. The small magical moments. That’s what life is all about right? One day, this will all be a memory. We still have a long ways to go before life goes back to 100% pre-pandemic. But there is a lesson to be learned here... cherish the now. It’s okay to have good days and bad days. It’s okay if one day I’m feeling great, and other days I just want to crawl in bed and bum out. This is a lot to process, readjusting our mentalities is draining. But! Together we WILL come out of it stronger. I believe that. How are YOU doing? Is your state open or are you still in lockdown? I’d love to know!
No caption needed... who can relate?
Okay...so let’s discuss this for a second. Honestly, I’ve been struggling with this wall for a second. I went through this phase last year where I wanted bold. Bold bold bold! And putting up a black wallpaper was something I seriously was craving to do. Now... lately, with all that’s going on, I’m feeling like black is dragging me down. As much as I love black, I want it as an accent. And I feel this wall is feeling heavy in here. I can’t believe im struggling with this. I’m pretty good with making a decision and sticking by it. But in all honesty... this one is a doozy 🤔. On one hand I want to take down and on the other hand I don’t want to take down and yes there are more important things in this world to worry about but right now...but this is where my heads at ❤️tell me!!!
How do I properly thank you all? I’m speechless...my sister surprised me with this montage of videos from all of you!! How did you all pull this surprise???? Today was the most special birthday celebration because of all of you and also my amazing family! I’m truly blessed beyond words. I’ll forever remember today! Thank you so so so much!!!
1 year older today! If you’re wondering, I’ve been 21 years old for the last 16 years 🤪

Happy Anniversary to my soul mate! 17 years of marriage... feels like yesterday I opened that door and we saw one another for the first time. That day little did I know that together we would be here today, 3 kids later! I love you, I can’t imagine doing this thing called life without you! Happy anniversary! Love you to the moon and back x 1 million!
Swipe to see the before! My fireplace has seen a transformation. I decided to give it a facelift by changing the tile to a mirrored tile. Looking back, I have def seen my style evolve over the years. I love that I can experiment with my home. ( my husband on the other hand, not so much 😬 ).
Beautiful time of the year! Love when this tree outside my family room window starts to bloom ❤️ May is my birthday month and my wedding anniversary too! When is your birthday month? Would love to know!
There is something about a faux fur throw blanket that always makes a room feel cozy! Ladies! I’m so embarrassed to say this but I tried to cut my husband’s and son’s hair two days ago and booooy did it go bad! 🤣😳. I gave them bald spots everywhere! Let’s just say, I won’t be putting Hair stylist in my resume any time soon 😬.
I may have changed some things around in here ☺️. I like it better like this! What do you think? Love the hearts my kids and I did to show support to all our essential workers! On a side note, I wanted to gently remind you that, these are difficult times we are going through right now. And I know, everyone is on edge and dealing with this in their own way. But lashing out on people doesn’t help anyone. Please take a deep breath before sending negativity. Yesterday, at 11:58 pm, while in bed getting ready to go to sleep, I received the nastiest email. Just random. Someone decided to take time out of their precious day to degrade me in the meanest way possible. Now, I don’t expect everyone to like me. That’s not even possible. But what shocked me was the fact that a human being felt the need to take time out of their day to email someone and spew hate towards that person with the clear intention to hurt them. I of course responded and clapped back with kindness as I’ve been raised properly and I choose to be a good role model for my kids. Her words didn’t hurt, her intentions however was shocking to me. Thankfully I have learned to block negativity like these but not everyone can do that. Words like hers could have had serious affect on someone else. It took me a long time to be able to emotionally block people like that. So today and every day, I ask you to please choose love, choose kindness, choose compassion, choose respect, choose positivity and choose to be a light in someone’s life. Because remember.... Karma isn’t as forgiving.

Oreos or Ritz crackers?? Which jar would you grab? Decided to display our snacks in jars today instead of keeping them in their packaging 😃 ( I think we all know this was inspired by Khloe Kardashian 😉 )
Aaaaand here is Julia’s bedroom 🤷🏻♀️ apparently I can’t show Celines’s without showing Julia’s 😕
Yesterday I shared in my stories my nationality, where I’m originally from and where I grew up before moving to the US. I’d love to hear from you! Please share with me. Where are you from? Where do you live? Where are your origins from?
I’m done!!! Well, we still need to trim the last row for the top tomorrow... but I’m done!!!! Real wood panels for my feature wall in our basement. What do you think??? UPDATE to answer your questions: the panels are reclaimed real wood panels with an adhesive on the back. They are easy to peel and stick. From @stikwooddesign ! I initially was planning on trimming the panels with a hand saw but quickly realized that wouldn’t do the trick. So I got a power saw and that made things go so fast! I used on my wall the Reclaimed Weathered Wood in Gray.
I have no caption... after today’s cleaning... my brain is fried 🤭😫 alsooooo.... comment when you see it 😂

Today on my stories, I shared with you how I refreshed my daughters’ bedrooms with things I already have in my home. Here is Celine’s room! We had fun working together although she had some thoughts on how she wanted certain things in here. 🤷🏻♀️ a girl wants what a girl wants right? Question of the night: how many kids do you have? And do you want more? I have 3 and I am done ❤️
When you tell your kids to clean up but what they actually hear...
