I needed to share with you guys one of my new favorite furniture stores, Castlery, it's a modern furniture company, they craft furniture that is timeless, using the highest quality raw materials to create pieces that are built for longevity and multi-purpose use.  

Their pieces are stunning, but my love at first sight with the Owen Sofa in Natural was definitely something special. It exceeded my expectations a whole lot by how comfortable and cozy it is, the fabric is beautiful and of amazing quality, I love I can also remove the covers and wash them if necessary. The natural wood touch it has goes perfectly well with our style, but if you are more into darker colors they also have ''Walnut'' as an option. If you want something bigger you can also have the Owen Sofa as a sectional, I know it's great!










Besides their beautiful selection of Sofas, they also have everything you need to furnish your home, their dining sets are stunning and I've been obsessing over their  Amber Bouclé Swivel Chair it's hard not to, it's a beauty.  

I'm very happy with my overall experience with the brand and I would 100% recommend their pieces.















If you are interested in one of their pieces they offer free fabric swatches, Flat rate shipping, Free shipping for shipment with a subtotal of $999 and above, a 14-day return policy & Warranty coverage.

I guess I did it again guys! I'm so excited and proud about this DIY project because I still can't get over how beautiful it turned out.  I've been having a lot of fun, decorating, and creating things at home it has just become a huge passion of mine so I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. I'm definitely not a professional and this was actually my very first time creating a piece of furniture from scratch. 


I've been wanting to get a Coffee table like this one and I actually had a bunch of them pinned on my Pinterest board but they were crazy expensive so in my search for inspo I came across @SonelyMateo's video on Instagram and loved the idea of creating one myself so that's exactly what I did, with the help of my beloved husband who cut the Pine boards for me at home and gave me a hand whenever I needed him.  I didn't film a ''Tutorial'' perse, but in my Tiktok video (below) you can see pretty much the basic steps and what I did to achieve this beauty that I now enjoy and have right in front of me. At the very bottom of the post, you can also find some of the things/products I used for my DIY in case you want to recreate your own. 


The overall dimensions of the coffee table - 28'' x 39'' x 16'' Tall.  We used (3)  2''x 10''x 8'' Yellow Pine Wood Boards,  we cut all the pieces we needed at home because we had the tools BUT we've always cut our wood at Home Depot so you can perfectly do that if you don't have the tools or are not willing to invest in some. We needed (3) 39'' planks for our top and (8)  16'' pieces for our legs. I used two different wood stains to achieve this gorgeous color, the first coat with  White Wash Pickling and the second one with Early American. I'm absolutely in love with the table, it's the perfect statement piece in our living room it looks gorgeous and so high-end I'm still amazed. 


 If you guys have any questions please feel free to leave them all in the comment section, I'll be more than happy to get back to you.

The exterior of your house is the first thing people see when they walk up to it. It's important that you put in a little effort into making it look nice and welcoming, not just because of how your guests feel but also because it could be an eye-catching advertisement for your home. Below you will find some simple and effective ways to improve the exterior of your house:

Outdoor Furniture


Adding outdoor furniture to your home's exterior is a great way to make the space more inviting. There are lots of different types of outdoor furniture to choose from, so you can find the perfect pieces that fit your style and needs. Some popular options include benches, swings, chairs, tables, and umbrellas.


When selecting furniture for your outdoors, it's essential to consider the climate in your area. If you live in a hot climate, be sure to choose materials that will withstand the heat, such as metal or wicker. If you live in a colder climate, pick pieces made from weather-resistant materials like wood or plastic.


Another thing to keep in mind when choosing outdoor furniture is how much space you have to work with. If you have a small patio or deck, choose smaller pieces that won't take up too much space. And if you have a large backyard, go ahead and select oversized furniture that will provide plenty of seating for your guests.


Hanging Lights


If you're looking for a way to add some extra curb appeal to your home for the Compass site, consider hanging lights. There are different types of lights that can be hung from the exterior of your house, including string lights, lanterns, and even holiday decorations. Hanging lights is a great way to add some extra personality to your home and make it stand out from the rest.


Window Boxes


Another easy way to add some personality to the exterior of your house is by adding window boxes. Window boxes can also be used to plant flowers or herbs, or they can be used to display decorative items such as rocks or flags. Adding window boxes is a great way to brighten up the exterior of your house and to add a splash of color.


Paint The Front Door


One of the most affordable ways to improve the exterior of your home is by painting the front door. A new coat of paint can make your home look new again, and it's a relatively easy project that you can do yourself. If you're looking for a different color or style, there are a number of different options available for you so that you can find the perfect one for your home.


Add Shutters


Shutters are another great way to improve the exterior appearance of your house. They come in a variety of colors and styles, so you can find ones that will complement the aesthetic of your home. Shutters also provide some benefits, such as blocking out sunlight and protecting your windows from the elements.


In conclusion, with a few simple tips, you can have the exterior of your home looking great for all to see. By using these tips, you'll be able to improve your home's curb appeal and increase its overall value.

You guys, I know it's been A WHILE, but this is SO worth it. Life has been a crazy roller-coaster the last 4-5 months? and a whole lot happened and changed. We moved, that's a pretty refreshing and cool change I'm still very excited about. The decorating and rearranging stuff has become one of my favorite things to do lately.  Home decor has been my thing and I'm embracing it 100%. 



Chicos, sé que ha pasado MUCHO TIEMPO, pero ha valido la pena.  Mi vida ha sido una loca montaña rusa por los últimos 4-5 meses? muchas cosas han sucedido y cambiado. Nos mudamos, ese es un cambio bastante grande y ''refrescante'' por el que todavía estoy muy emocionada. La decoración y reorganización se ha convertido en una de mis cosas favoritas últimamente. La decoración del hogar ha sido lo mío sin duda alguna y lo estoy disfrutando al 100%.




This is my very 1st IKEA HACK and oh, how I love this. I was not intending on doing a detailed tutorial about it because as I just mentioned, this was my very first attempt at doing this type of DIY's and I had no clue how things would turn out, we are pretty skilled and crafty (the hubby and I) but we were virgins in this matter, the result blew our minds and saying that we are very proud of ourselves is a total understatement, here a share some pictures and a quick TikTok video I made about the process.


Este es mi primer IKEA HACK y, oh, cuánto me encanta. No tenía la intención de hacer un tutorial detallado al respecto porque, como acabo de mencionar, este fue mi primer intento de hacer este tipo de DIY y no tenía ni idea de cómo saldrían las cosas. Nosotros nos consideramos bastante hábiles y creativos (el esposo y yo) pero éramos vírgenes en este asunto, el resultado nos sorprendió y decir que estamos muy orgullosos de nosotros mismos nos queda corto. Aquí comparto algunas fotos y un video rápido de TikTok que hice sobre el proceso, que les parece? 



What do you guys think?

YASS to BLAZER weather!


Even though I didn't take these pictures during a time where you are supposed to be wearing a blazer over a bodysuit and a hat at 12:00pm on a Sunday,  NOW is the time people, the time has finally arrived, now it's perfectly justified and people won't look at you as a weirdo for sweating your back and bones for a picture haha! 


This look has all the vibes, if the weather is right you can perfectly rock your shorts and throw your favorite blazer on, grab your heels (or even sneakers, that'd be cute too honestly), and go on with your day.  I absolutely love the combo here and feel like I'll be wearing that blazer a whole lot, gotta love an oversized look, am I right?- The Hat, Blazer, and Sandals are all from JustFab.

¡YASS  to BLAZER weather!

A pesar de que no tomé estas fotos durante un tiempo en el que se supone que debes usar una chaqueta sobre bodysuit y un sombrero a las 12:00 p.m. de un domingo, AHORA es el momento señores, finalmente ha llegado el momento, ahora es perfecto, es justificado y la gente no te verá como un bicho raro por sudar la espalda y hasta los huesos por tirar una foto jaja!

Este look me da ''all the vibes'', si el clima es el adecuado, puedes lucir perfectamente tus pantalones cortos y ponerte tu blazer favorito, agarra tus tacones (o incluso tenis eso se vería súper también honestamente) y continuar con tu día. Me encanta el combo y siento que usaré mucho este blazer, gotta love an oversized look, ¿verdad? El sombrero, blazer y sandalias son de JustFab.









SHOP THE LOOK!
