Laced Tunes




A couple of days ago it was all about romantic touches of lace.
 As you guys might remember, 
one of my fave pieces from Free People is the Voile trapeze. This is Gypsan's
version of it and love it as well!. This one is a little
 longer on me and this coral shade is beyond gorgeous!
I decided to pair it up with another Gypsan favorite.
This laced vest looked really nice
as a layering piece.




Here I present to you my beloved guitar.
  Singing, playing, songwriting, has been my number 
one passion since I was a little girl.
Being able to lead worship every Sunday is such
 a blessing, and I am so grateful....
Today we leave for the Southeast Calvary Chapel
 Pastor's Conference and hubby and I are
 very excited!

Lately...




"Started a journal to keep my monthly bible verses.
I'm determined to memorize more of them.
Nothing like feeding the soul with God's word".


 " The other day hubby opened a box where we keep our old pictures.
 It's funny how with digital technology we don't print pictures anymore.
We keep them on our laptops or social media albums.
I want to change that. Anyways, I found in that box this
picture of myself at 24 years old. Little did I know
we were going to be doing more photo adventures in the future
with the blog.
I also realized how I've always been a boho girl"


" I dried this bunch of Purple Statice and it's
 amazing how the color is still intact"
Nature wonders..."


" I made these little birds to add a little something in our
 room since it is all  a beige color.
I got the idea from IKea's wall decals.
To make these, I used scrapbook paper!"


" I've been into mauve tones lately. So I made this lip mix


Last night we went to East End Market.
It is a neighborhood market that showcases
food entrepreneurs, artists, and chefs.

Porch therapy is a really cool store with all things green!
We bought this cute air plant and now it's sitting
g on our table.
On  Pinterest you can find so many cool ways to decorate with
 these lovely plants.

I'm so happy is Friday.. 
what are you guys up to?

5 Minutes Make up

5 Minutes Make up



Eyebrow makeup
$27 - asos.com



theBalm Boy's Blush
asos.com




Ok, ok... maybe it's going to take a little more than 5 minutes, but still, this is a short routine than can
 enhance our beauty and makes us look refreshed!

 A powder foundation is perfect to quickly even out your complexion, and this one from Make up Forever 
provides the perfect coverage.
If blemishes or any other marks are present, use a bit of concealer on those spots first! 
Maybelline Fit me, is still the one that I use on a daily basis. For the cheekbones, Fratboy blush has been one of those HG blushes since it looks so natural and gives a beautiful glow.

Adding a soft lipstick shade is a simple and quick way to change up your look and MAC Chatterbox is a really
nice everyday shade.

And last but not least mascara and brows!
These little guys can make such a huge difference,
helping to make the eyes more open (mascara) and framing our face (brows) 
L'oreal Telescopic, helps to fan the lashes out and make them longer thanks to it's small fibers.
Benefit gimme brow, is a product that helps to fill in the brows and give them more definition.
The tiny wand it has, makes it for a really 
easy and fast application!

What's your your 5 minutes routine?

Share down below
and have a great weekend!

Forgotten Fields






Hello everyone!
I hope you had an amazing Christmas(if you celebrate it) and new year's Eve.
 We were very blessed to have the opportunity to share the holidays with special
friends that happen to be living now in Orlando. Everyday that passes by,
I thank God that he allowed us to move because it has been for the best so far.



For the past few weeks, every time we visit one of our friends, we pass by this huge
field of orange trees. You can still see some trees that bear fruit, but others are all dried up.
As I am writing this, it came  to my mind that as we walk in life, around were we live, or work, 
some of us are full of life, and others aren't.


In this orange field, it is so obvious to see which one is which.
But with us, sometimes it's hard to tell who is the one all dried up inside.
Today as you go, be kind, give a smile, encourage, because you never know
who really needs it!

 Here, I am wearing this Gypsan tunic
 that I received a while ago.
The detail I love the most about it are the bell sleeves! 
But of course, you gotta love the romantic
 touches of a sweet bow and crochet too.
We were going to run errands that day, 
so I wore a simple pair of jeans and sandals.

Have a great week!

Holiday Sparkle

Holiday Sparkle


Here is some inspiration for the coming holiday festivities.
 This is the kind of outfit that would be
 perfect for New Year's Eve!
I love the contrast of black, white, and red. 
Adding silver and gold accents with different
 textures gives a really nice dimension to the outfit. 
And bit of glitter is always fun to have as well
to make it nice and sparkly!

Happy Monday!
xoxo

On a budget Home Decor



Old bottles and empty spaghetti jars $1-3

Hello loves!
Today I am very excited to share with you a little bit of my apartment. 
When we moved in to our new place
 almost two months ago, I was soo looking forward to 
start decorating the place and make it our own. 
For the past six years, at my old place, it was all about the modern/ contemporary style. 
I really loved it, but I wanted something different and cozier this time around. 
The idea of modern- meets -rustic came to my
 mind so little by little, my husband and I started with our decorating journey
 which included some DIY's and thrifting!

Ikea Dofta $5/Michaels scrapbook paper $.70/pine cones (free)
 Bath and Body Works candle $10

Random bottles and spaghetti jars are a
 great way to add some inexpensive decor,
and the fact that there is recycling involved it's a win win! 
I added pine cones that I got from my neighborhood, and other trinkets from Ikea
 which is very well know for it's affordable prices.



Mix print and textures to you give a layered look that adds to that lived- in and welcome feeling.
Ross has become one of my favorites stores for on the budget decor.
You can find variety and the store brings new items constantly.

Ikea Pello Chair $50

 I love throws, but I do not have one yet, using a big scarf 
is a great to way add a sophisticated whirl to your living room.

Ross Wooden Curtain rod $24

I fell in love with these window panels from West Elm
a few months back. After waiting for quite some time
they were finally on sale!
Patience is key. If you like something that is more
on the expensive side, check often, it will
eventually go on a lower price.

Target Geo Accent Pillow $17

Wal-Mart Chair Cushion $5

Go thrifting! This can be so much fun. 
We absolutely love going on thrifting adventures. 
Sometimes you can leave empty handed, but others,
 you can score beautiful pieces. 
We got these wooden chairs for free at U-haul. 
They have a green room
where people leave unwanted items in good condition. 
We painted them, added a pretty cushion, 
and voila!
Rustic Chair (free)

 Dollar Tree Cutlery and frames/ 
Michaels Chevron scrapbook paper and letters
$1-5

 Oh Pinterest...how addicted I am to you! I can surely get lost there for hours.
 I love that you can find pretty much anything you want. I wanted to add  a little 
something to our dining room wall so when I saw this idea, I thought it looked pretty clever and very
 easy to do! 
Doing projects yourself not only can be cheaper,
but it adds to having your touch in the room!

Jute rope $5

I love to have fresh flowers in my living room.
To me, is an instant pick me up
 and definitely adds to that cozy look. I have to admit that having
 fresh flowers all the time can be expensive, 
so having faux ones is a great 
alternative to alternate.

Thrifted Tea pot $4

 Ross Shower Curtain $8 /Target Wall decals $13/Ikea plant $5.49
Wal-Mart Towels $3



Recycled Jars


For the bathroom, Wall decals can be a great 
way to  dress a wall and very easy to use.
 I wanted a clean look, so I also used clear containers and recycled jars
 with jute rope as a decorative touch.


I hope you guys enjoyed this post
and remember...
be creative, be crafty, be thrifty!
Happy Friday
xoxo
