I'm so excited to be sharing this Q&A with all of you. I've gotten so many questions about my pregnancy that I decided it would be easier and more helpful to just answer all of them here.

Easy Mexican Recipe

Ever since my stove was installed a few weeks ago and after finding out we're expecting a baby, all I've been talking about on social media has been food.. and do you blame me? I was stove-less and without a kitchen for over 4 months and eating out didn't turn out to be as fun as I initially thought. I literally became sick from all the Italian, Bengali and American food I ate.

Now that my stove is installed and my kitchen is 90% done I simply want to live in it. I enjoy cooking so much it's a bit concerning. One cuisine I will never get sick of eating and cooking is Mexican cuisine. I LOVE all the fresh ingredients each recipe uses as well as the spices and not to mention how Mexican people wear their cuisine on their sleeves. It's addicting. I believe I was Mexican in another life and if you don't like Mexican food we could never be friends.

What to do on Valentines Day?

IMG_4941

Here comes the desperate time of year again; Valentines Day! The time when you don't know what to get that special person in your life. You don't want to be a cheapskate and you also don't want to break the bank. You simply can't get the question out of your head; What to do on Valentines Day?

Did you know that many people stay single to avoid these crazy times (believe me, I know a few). Keeping it 100% with ya'll.. I'm on the fence about the whole thing. Yes it's fun wearing red every year, receiving chocolates/ flowers and getting a 'Happy Valentines Day' from strangers. Yet, I believe you shouldn't need a specific day to celebrate love. You should celebrate it everyday.

Despite how I feel.. today I will be sharing some fun things that I personally experienced throughout the years and highly recommend doing for Valentines day. Hopefully it helps some of you make some V'day plans.

2017 Highlights / Family Roadtrip

IMG_4066

Last Summer I partnered up with Chevrolet to go on a family Coastal Road trip driving their 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. Our goal was to end up in Portland, Maine. We were clueless when it came to adding stops to our trip, restaurants to eat in, scenic areas to stop, hotels to stay, etc. While going through my phone I realized I had downloaded an app a few months back which would help with our dilemma. & just like that using the Roadtrippers app we found our fist stop, Walnut beach. I knew I wanted to visit the beach since my daughter, Hazel is a rock collector. So I thought, wouldn't it be fun to stop and find some souvenirs to bring back home?

Bathroom Renovation / Revealed

I'm super excited to finally share my bathroom renovation with all of you. As I promised, not only am I sharing photos but I'm also sharing direct links to where I purchased everything. I know a lot of you are thinking of revamping your space and hopefully this serves as inspiration.

 When we first purchased our house the bathroom wasn't in terrible conditions although it was a little too pink for my taste and backdated. Our home was built in the early 1920's and was partially renovated in the 50's. I didn't hate it at all. Maybe if it was an apartment I was renting, I wouldn't have mind but since it's our first home in which we will be living in for many years to come, I think the change was necessary. As you can see below, the bathroom was in great shape. The previous owner even changed the vanity a few months before selling us the house.


My inspiration for this room was
