When we moved to our current apartment, I was excited to finally have my own office. Back in Caracas my office was in the middle of the hallway (remember this post?) and in our last apartment I had a microscopic one. Well… I think I have upgraded myself to a more office-like space and I love the natural light that this room has. We are renting and that is why I don’t have anything hanging on the walls.
This room is my office and my “beauty room”; I have a working space and a vanity table. I also store my bags, shoes and jewelry so this brings more color to the room. Should I point out that Nina always is by my side? She keeps me company every time I am in here. ❤
My bags were thrown inside my closet and they kept losing its form. So my mom gave me the idea of buying a hat/coat rack and hanging them instead. I bought mine in Ikea.
What do guys think? 🙂
Recently I bought a very ugly cup in thrift store out of pure oh-this-costs-only-a-euro euphoria. The color was terrible but I saw some potential in it. So with a coat of white and two coats of baby blue I have now a very cute cactus in a cup.
After you spray it, be sure to let it dry (I say this since I am an anxious person and didn’t let my cup sit overnight) what happened is that the soil stuck in different parts of the cup. Not cute at all.)
This can definitely be a nice idea for a gift too 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I love seeing posts of what people carry on their bag (little creepy right?). In my defense it is just kind of fun to take a peak and see if they are organized, what products do they carry around, what can’t they live without. It is fun.
I have shared the “what’s in my bag” post and “what’s inside my travel carry-on” post and after taking a look at those two posts I need to add some similar posts with more appealing pictures. Let us called them the “updated” ones.
Next week I am going to be out-of-town for a small business/pleasure trip and (obviously) I am going to share it the week after with you guys so you can see how lovely the place I am going to is. It is a short trip so I try to fit as little makeup as possible in my toiletries bag.

This makeup bag is fantastic because it’s small, practical and has plastic coverage so is something spills, it won’t ruin my things (let’s add that is cute too). I bought it from Forever 21 two years ago.
I would love to know, what’s do you guys put inside your make up travel bag?
I normally get in the Holiday spirit around the end of November but this year it took me a while to feel the vibe. I started decorating my home on December 5th and after that I added one or two accents every week. In our last home I couldn’t decorate much because it was so small that I really didn’t want to saturate the place.
I used our mini tree from last year but this time I added a small stool so it now looks bigger. I also bought some pillows and added a little fun to our fridge door.
Today I’m still working (from home) and I am feeling Christmas more than before. It is a lovely cozy feeling…
I miss my walk-in closet. I really do.
There was a magical girly feeling while stepping into my closet because I had all my jewelry and accessories nicely displayed. Now I find myself with no space and I have to manage to make it look nice, clean and tidy.
So after taking a look at some ideas on the internet I found that I could save space by using my empty walls. Some hooks and there you go: my fashion trinkets have a place to rest.
The weather is starting to get a little warmer and I can’t be more excited about it!
When we were looking for an apartment back in September, I hoped it would have a balcony. So to my surprise, we found that this place had three mini balconies and one of them was big enough for me to put a small table and two chairs. I also added some colorful lights that I bought from Tiger (this store is going to be the end of me) and a bamboo rug.
Lately we’ve been blessed with beautiful sunny days and I can’t wait to have my morning coffee in the balcony when it gets a little warmer.
What do guys think?
Would you join me for some coffee? 🙂
I remember having a comfortable office back in our old apartment. Remember this post? Well I am going to show you my new tiny workspace.
We bought this desk at Ikea and it was resting in our bedroom. I adopted our dining table as my office and everyday I had to move my things when we…well…dined. So I moved the desk from the bedroom to our living room (since there was an available space now that the Christmas tree was gone) and now I have a lovely view from where I am now writing this post.
I added my office supplies so it felt more like a workspace. Before you go all judgemental on me for the little uncomfortable pink chair, I am going to buy a proper sitting chair so I won’t turn into Quasimodo before the year ends.
I am also going to add some more things…but for now…here it is:
