Love is in the air!
It’s that time of year again when red, pink and heart shaped everything has taken over. I won’t deny, I love Valentines Day. But we should show our love not only today, but everyday.
I want to wish everyone a fabulous day! Whether you are having a romantic dinner, hanging with your girlfriends or relaxing on the couch tonight, I hope it’s filled with love!! I’m not sure what my plans are tonight, but one thing is certain, I will have lots of champagne tonight!
Happy V Day!

Holiday gift wrapping joy!
For those of you who know me know, I love gift wrapping, especially during the holidays. This is my first Christmas gift wrap(first pic only) inspiration for you.
Using brown paper may seem dull, but you can dress it up anyway you like. It’s simple but absolutely gorgeous way to gift wrap your Christmas presents this year. I have painted these in the past with gold or silver dots and tied with a colorful bow. It will definitely make your gift stand out!
It is the thought that counts, but it’s even better when the recipient can take one look at your gift and know it came from you.
My boyfriend and I hosted our first Thanksgiving Brunch! And it’s safe to say, it was a hit. Any cocktail that’s socially acceptable to drink in the morning is always my favorite. Cue the mimosa! The highlight was our Mimosa bar and Nacatamals. A Nacatamal is a Nicaragua Tamal. They are typically bigger than your average Mexican Tamal and stuffed with much more juicy ingredients.
Next time you’re planning on serving mimosas, create a mimosa bar instead of just serving juice and Champagne. Mimosa bars are affordable and fun, and, if done correctly, they will be the hit at your next event.
It was a great day with family and friends. Thanksgiving is much more than amazing dessert and Turkey. We can’t forget to give Thanks! Hoping everyone had a chance to reflect on all our many blessings. I am always thankful to God for my family and friends, for my health and theirs, and especially thankful to the love of my life. Looking forward to more holiday parties this month! Let the celebrations continue!
