March Weekly Recap-3

Still loving this centerpiece ensemble, but might be time to change it up for Spring.

Electric blue toenails

A quick road trip from the land of Tecate to Texas and back. The stop for my favorite calabasas empanadas on the way is basically mandatory.

With the sun and heat arriving, my lavender plant is starting to bloom again.

I found out you cannot always substitute Stevia for sugar. My banana blueberry bread fail.

A natural, filter free, rosy glow sky in Mty.

March Weekly Recap

I’ve added L-Glutamine to my vitamin regime. It’s great for digestion. I noticed a difference day 1. Sluggy tummy no more!

I’ve been in a vintage-y decor mood recently. While garage sales are few and far between, Sr. Elizondo and I passed by one and a candelabra caught my eye. We left with a set of candelabras and a large peacock painting.

I finished the book Wise Blood. The story of a young man who is grappling with his faith in God and inadvertently becomes a preacher of a God-less religion. He meets a man with ‘wise blood” and other characters that symbolically represent his struggles.

Another wedding, another dress needed. I bought this one from NordyRack and it’s perfect for Cancun.

The best of the best, unexpected roses from Sr. Elizondo. My favorite is to break them up into multiple mini bouquets for around the house.

Recent Decor Hacks

Pillow cover without a pillow. I rolled towels and put them in the pillow cover. It’s not perfect, but it works for now.

Window Valance. I have no sewing skills and couldn’t find a valance that I liked. I did find a kitchen towel at Crate & Barrel that I thought would work. No sewing was necessary. I just draped the towel over the rod. I might velcro the insides together, but maybe not.

An empty corner. I took the homemade bench we made for the end of the bed and stood it upright adding books and plants, etc.

And a couple of more common hacks: the throw over the chair is actually a blanket scarf and the plant on the table is in a spaghetti jar.

Less Common Valentine Gifts

Instead of flowers, give this succulent from The Sill. I think it’s adorable.

I know it’s a book, but it gets great reviews and who doesn’t want to unlock their erotic intelligence…

Coming Soon Golden Fortune Cookie. Put your personalized love message inside.

Pink Ray Ban Sunglasses. I might gift these to myself.

This candle from Goop because I can’t believe it’s a real thing….but it is.

Pattern Tiles for the Patios

We’re making over our small garden this year. Frankly, it’s become a big mess with a grass area that we never use. We had decided on pavers, but then I saw these photos. Pattern tiles definitely take these outdoor spaces up a notch.

Latest Low Waste Hack

Now that Mexico has implemented no more plastic bags, our stash we have been using for the bathroom trash is rapidly dwindling. A quick look on the internet and problem solved. You can use newspaper.

You simply fold the newspaper into a cone and wah-lah.

Works like a charm.
