In sync with Barbara's renowned love for food and all things vegan, I am finding myself looking more and more towards just buying and eating unprocessed foods. It is hard with 3 kids, 3 dogs and a full time job to find time to inform myself and browse the aisles, but, little by little we are changing our diets and feeling healthier—and it feels good.

Hello ladies & gentlemen, I guess you know by now that once in a while I get a serious case of wanderlust, and since in reality we are not going any place soon, my way to treat myself is to have a virtual visual holiday.

Yesterday, I was out and about with a client looking for some finishing touches for her home and on the list was a rug for her living room. Rugs are wonderful decorative items as they can really complement existing furniture and pull together a room. I love them.

So, if you asked me whom I’d call if I weren’t an interior designer myself—and if I had all the money in the world—and were in the possession of a fantastic, yet empty home in need of decorating, well, Maria Lládo would be on my list!

Hello ladies & gentlemen! It seems we might not be moving back to Antigua after all (at least not for the time being), so no challenges on decorating a smaller home-for now. Next time, I will give you some tips on how to maximize a minimal space, but today I want to share with you a great house featured in the latest issue of Dwell by an architect friend of mine, Jose Roberto Paredes.

Hello ladies & gentlemen! The 20th of December of last year my 3rd baby boy, Adai, was born and for the past 2 months we have been thoroughly enjoying our latest addition to the family. It is really precious to see him smile and 'chat' with his big brothers and I have been cocooning as much as possible (clients were already calling me 2 weeks after he was born) as I really wanted to enjoy this special time.

With only 1 or 2 weeks to go, I guess this will be my last post for a while, depending on how good I feel after giving birth (I am hoping for a natural birth after 2 prior C-sections!), and how crazy life is with a tiny baby and two wild boys running around. (I have no doubt it will be!)

I absolutely love Pinterest. Not only for all the fantastic images that get pinned every day by some truly great talents that are an inspiration to me, but also for the many words I get to see. Many times, I will see a quote that will inspire me, make me think or just simply make me smile. They're little reminders of why you work as hard as you do. Little reminders to enjoy life to its fullest, and little reminders that you are human, just as everybody else.

Ok, I've got to admit it, this post is going to be a short one and really just purely for self-indulgence.

This week I received an email from the always-right-with-the-latest-trends magazine, Wallpaper, and the opening photo left me mumbling "wow!" What was it, you ask? Only one of the two winners of the 'Best Urban Hotels 2013' Wallpaper Award, and wow, did it deserve that award!
