Get A Good Night’s Sleep This Evening! @Novosbed #Ad

    I have a very busy schedule during the week so I value getting a good night's sleep to help me tackle the day ahead the following morning.  Due to the fact that my son and I have a plethora of allergies, I am always cautious about the bedding that I purchase because of the fear of he or I having an allergic reaction.  Novosbed has exactly what I need to prepare for safe and restful sleep.     A silk duvet from Novsobed is made of 100% Mulberry silk. This type of silk is hypoallergenic and great for those with allergies to feathers and down comforters but who want the luxury of a natural fiber filling. The Mulberry Silk Duvet has a 300-thread count and a quilted pattern, which protects the silk filling from shifting or bunching. It’s also compatible with standard size duvet covers in a variety of sizes.    My husband and I have a King-sized bed and we were very excited about testing out our new silk duvet since we often have our younger son co-sleeping with us due to his … [Read more...]

Upgrade Your Bathroom Experience! #TuiteaDesdeElTrono @CharminLatino #Partner

*This is part of a sponsored campaign with Charmin and Latina Mom Bloggers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.    The last few months, I have been working hard to remodel some of the rooms in our home one by one.  Although we redid the bathroom a couple of years ago, it is already in need of some new touches to make it a little more comfortable and  inviting.  After all, it is probably the room in the house that we spend the most time in besides our bedrooms.     Growing up, one of the ways that my Grandmother added special touches to the bathroom is by displaying crystal and ceramic figurines on a glass shelf on top of the sink.  She would also fill glass bowls over the toilet with potpourri and with scented soaps.  As soon as you walked into the bathroom, you would immediately be greeted with these distinctive scents.  To this day, I strive to create this kind of pleasing experience in my own bathroom to make it feel like home or "como en casa."     This summer, … [Read more...]

How To Transform Your Living Room Step By Step…

    Those of you who follow me on social media know that I have been very busy remodeling my living room for the past two months.  Let me tell you, it was definitely time!  The last time we bought new furniture was in 2005 and it was definitely starting to show in the condition of our couches and our tables.  It had gotten to the point, towards the end of Spring that I just couldn't take it anymore. The living room had gotten so cluttered and run-down that it was starting to make me psychologically ill.  What I mean by that is that I would just dread walking into the room at all.    My first thought was that I was going to have to find someone to come and paint.  I realize that many people paint their own homes and I actually painted this room almost seven years ago.  The truth is that I hated painting and it was a big job for me to do alone even though Hubby helped me paint the areas I couldn't reach and finished the edges around the ceiling.  Since I had painted the walls … [Read more...]
