Dream in a Bottle

Beauty • Sex in the City 'Dream' This fragrance was given to me as a gift by a friend of mine from California. I appreciated it very much, as she had no idea I was out of my perfume for a little bit by the time she gave me this gift. Normally, I don't use too much fragrance, so this one is going to last me a while.

Orange Style

Food • Sliced Orange: Oranges are one of my favorite fruits ever (and mandarins), , I simply love them. It all started with my father, he was the one who introduced me to this orange habit. I have to have oranges in my life always. I have no idea why I never thought of slicing my oranges like this before, no idea. In one of my trips to San Diego, I went to a restaurant called The Mission, and in the breakfast plate I order it had sliced oranges, from that time on, I don't eat oranges any other way.

Into Aqua

Style • This aqua dress, I made it a while ago to attend a wedding. I made it the same day of the even, go figure. But, it turned out to be very nice and a conversation started with some women interested in the dress. It's a little tighter than I'll prefer because I used to be skinnier when I made it. I went with Shantung Silk and Black trim for front and back area.

Zebra Center Bowl • I bought this center piece a long time ago from a craft store. I am not a big fan of animal print, but, I have always been attracted to the zebra print. I think the main reason is because it has two of my favorite colors black and white, and I do like the look of this print. So, I don't mind having a pop of zebra here and there in my space. This zebra center piece is made out of wood and it's the perfect size, I simply like it.

YCDT • Hanging by a String

These tiny paper flags or triangles, however sounds best, are very simple to make and easy to use for different things. Simply cut some triangle pieces and glue them to the yarn string. I made them solid Blue but you can change the look by writing words on each triangle, or gluing family photos in the center of the triangles. Nice easy project for kids or just to kill some time with friends over a glass of wine.

Biolage Moment

Matrix Biolage Smoothing Gel • About this product, don't ask me if it is still in the market or if it has been discontinued, because I don't know. All I know about this product is that I bought it a while ago and after I bought it I put it aside and didn't use it right away. Well, that was a mistake! This product works so good that i now use it daily. I apply it on my hair, dry or wet, and I end up satisfied with the results and to me that's all it counts.

Spaghetti Deluxe

Spaghetti Deluxe • I believe (in my mind), that somewhere around my body I have an Italian vein, because I simply love Italian food, so pasta is a current dish in my daily diet, along with bread and wine and grapes and cheese. This is the same simple recipe that everybody makes but the presentation is just lovely to my eyes and delicious as always.

Bottom Print

Bottom Print Skirt • This skirt was made for me and by me. I am more of a solid color type of gal but when I saw this print at the fabric store I was seduced by it. It's just cool. I think this is something you can wear to a resort, a concert or any casual outdoor event, comfortable and chic just like I like it.

I bought two of them at a store called 'La Rose' and I simply love them not only the color is easy to go with other accessories around my place, but its texture and design is something to enjoy. The love for crochet is something I inherited from my grandmother and although I don't crochet as often as I would like, I will forever keep that craft in my life.

Grapefruit Moment

I love fruits, if only I had the time and the land to have my own garden so I can grow them myself. But, since that is not the case at all, I enjoy them whenever I can either buying them or receiving  them from generous friends. My love for the citrus family started when I was younger thanks to my father. This stay in Phoenix have been my time to enjoy lots of oranges, grapefruits, oranges and lemons. Grapefruit
