Hi everyone, today I want to share some pretty exciting news with all of you: for a limited time only, Big Apple will be bringing the most exclusive, original and one-of-a-kind oriental rugs to Guatemala! A beautiful and quality rug is not only one of the smartest decor investments you can make but, they also change the entire ambience of the room. They create warmth and add charm, color and personality. Plus, they last a lifetime- and sometimes even longer!
Can you believe Valentine’s Day is ALREADY one week away? Is it me or is this year going by even faster than the last? My goodness, I feel like we’ve barely recovered from the craziness of the Holiday Season and here we are, already searching for gifts for Valentine’s Day. We can never catch a break, can we?
Hi everyone, I know it's been a while since I've posted. Our internet connection in Con Dao, Vietnam was so unexpectedly slow that I wasn't able to even open the blog. Truth is, it was quite nice to disconnect for a while. The place was so beautiful, so isolated (my favorite of all we visited), that having that week all for ourselves was a real treat. Just what we needed at the end of a month-long vacation. (I'll be posting pictures later!)
I still cannot believe that Christmas is fast approaching! Honestly, 2012 couldn't have come and gone any faster! Perhaps it has to do with my schedule being so all-over-the-place this year, but it feels like only yesterday I was sharing Christmas Table Décor ideas with you. Do you remember?
November is the month to be thankful. With Thanksgiving now only 2 weeks away, the menu planning and décor preparations in most households are likely in full force. That's why I thought today would be a great day to share some of my favorite Fall/Thanksgiving Table Décor inspirations with you. It's been a while since I've shown you some table settings, no?
If there's one thing I love about Big Apple, besides the beautiful things they carry in the store, of course, is their impeccable customer service. Every time I walk in, even if it has been months since my last visit, their employees welcome me with a big smile and a warm and friendly attitude, making me feel like their most special and VIP customer.
I think it's fair to say that most of us absolutely love chevron. What is it about this simple, retro-inspired pattern - basically a bunch of inverted "V's" - that attracts us so much? I don't know. All I know is that the "chevron" shape has been around since the ancient times; found in many forms of ancient art, including pottery and stone carvings.
Today is going to be one hectic day for me. Besides the few blog meetings I have and the Alessa Designs Anniversary Party I'm attending and hosting with the rest of the team (come say hello!), somewhere along the way I still have to find time to prepare for my early morning interview for the "Matutino Express" talk show on Canal Antigua airing LIVE tomorrow at 8:30am.
Today I woke up in the worst mood, ever. I was hungry, cranky, tired and in no mood to talk or see anyone. You see, my husband and I had to do some blood exams and a Tomography Scan today, so we couldn't eat nor drink anything for about 12-14 hours - which means I couldn't have my coffee in the morning. And boy, you do not want to deal with me before I've had my morning dose of caffeine. Trust me. I'll bite.
I admit, I have a major addiction to Pinterest. What is it about pinning other people's pictures that is so intriguing? I can spend hours browsing through that website. It is such a concentrated source of inspiration, you find nearly every thing you are looking for in there.
