Utah has been blessed this year with a very warm winter, has allowed me to pull my spring clothing out early. I love the casual chic style that give us space for creativity, usually without costing too much. Winter has favored my style and I am totally loving these warm temperatures! It’s safe to say that I am more than ready for summer, which somehow always seems to not last very long. You probably can tell my cravings for warmer seasons by seeing my look for today’s post, a non-maternity jumpsuit.
I like to think that I am not a high maintenance girl or at least my husband makes me to believe I am not. I praise myself for not being obsessed with big brand names. To me what it’s really important is to feel comfortable and like what I am wearing, rather than the price. As a mother, I prefer spend money on experiences than in expensive clothing. It may sound hypocrite coming from a girl who owns more than a 100 pairs of shoes. But, the truth is I collected those over the years and always focused on buying them under a restricted rule of taking advantage of promotions as much as possible. Rules such that are not always possible to follow when you’re buying formal dresses for an event.
I am not a big fan of winter, as well of spring as I consider it cold. However, I learned how to appreciate the flowers blooming, bringing some spectacular colors and textures to our sight. Although I can’t complain about winter this year, as Utah has been gifted with warm temperatures and sunny days, I am excited to say officially goodbye to it.To be honest, I don’t trust Utah weather (after living here for 8 years I know that temperatures can change within a matter of hours). As summer is still far away, I don’t have many options other than faking it within my house by filling it with some of the most beautiful artificial flowers we can find at Target.
For that, I have created a list of artificial plants, topiaries, flowers, baskets and vessels that I love and will satisfy your craves for farmhouse decor. I confess that I am so confused on which one I like better that I couldn’t make a decision on which of these decorations will be part of my family very soon as they are all gorgeous. I hope things can be easier for you and and you can make a choice faster than me. Mostly, I hope this will help you to beat the gray skies and the boring white of the snow in your state.
On the list you will see the items I liked the most. If you are like me, one that is able to kill even a cactus because you keep forgetting to water it, you’ll probably do better with artificial plants and flowers. I’ve listed here some of the most realistic ones along with vessels and baskets. I hope you’ll love it as much I did.
I used to suffer every night to fall asleep. I had to follow a ritual in order to do so, but even with that I’d take 2 hours to fall asleep. Can you believe that? Some things, however, have helped me a lot. First thing is to take a hot cup of CHAMOMILE TEA every night before bed. This not only helps you with insomnia but also, cleans your skin. Seriously you can see the difference in your skin after a couple of months drinking it daily at bedtime. Here on this post I will share with you some tips to sleep better that use every night and of course I will talk a little bit more about the properties and benefits of Chamomile Tea.
I know, it took me forever to write about our trip to California. After our return to Utah I had a hard time with nausea and fatigue from the first trimester of my pregnancy and I was obligated to take some time off from blogging for three months. I am 26 weeks pregnant now and things feel much easier than before. Now it’s time to tell you a bit of all the fun we had there and some places to visit in California that might interest you for your next trip. First, I have to say that I intend to create a series of posts themed with our trip to California as I have so many things I want to share with you.
This is a very quick recipe that brings me so many childhood memories as it was the official dessert during Sunday family gathering. I am excited to try it myself this coming weekend. I wasn’t sure on making any extra dishes for the Christmas dinner but, I think a every good delicious dinner has to be finished with an equally delicious dessert. Don’t you agree?
