Home Makeover: Our Boho Chic Living Room

September 28, 2015   

A few months back, we shared with you our Bedroom Makeover and next up in our home makeover series is our living room. As you can see, we were pretty obsessed with everything grey and blue, but it made our living room look dark and dreary, it needed a major color boost.

The first thing we decided to do was add a rug. Rugs are great to define a space and this one helped add warmth and texture to our living room. By far, Overstock.com has the best selection of rugs. There were so many to pick from. We finally decided on this was called the nuLOOM hand-knotted rug. It was a steal for just $169 and you've probably seen it all around Pinterest. It really does work great for any space and looks gorgeous. We also love how it made our blue pouf pop.

Another easy way to add life to your living room is by adding throw pillows. I found this one on clearance at Target ($11) and the yellow ones too. 

We also added a houseplant! I've killed almost every plant we've had, but I was reading up on all the benefits of having a houseplant, such as it removes harmful toxins from the air so I thought I'd give it another try. I think I spent one whole week doing research on plants haha. I needed one that was low maintenance, didn't need too much sunlight and wasn't toxic to pets and children. And so, meet "Sally" she's our Areca Palm we bought at Home Depot. I still need to find a planter for her, but this plastic one from Home Depot for $5 bucks did the trick for now.

Another thing that helped add life to our living room was this accent chair in this rich caramel color. Can you believe it was under $150 bucks from Overstock? It definitely looks much more expensive than it is. It's also super comfortable and easy to assemble. I put it together myself in under 3 minutes. 

So there you have it. We're in love with our new space. How do you change up your living room? 

Where to Buy: 
Sofa: West Elm
Curtains: West Elm 
Pouf: Kohl's
Side Chair: Rialto Chair; Ovestock.com
Pillows: Yellow and Multi-Color from Target
Pillows: Cobalt Blue from West Elm 
Plant: Areca Palm from Home Depot 
Tray and Throw: HomeGoods 

Where'd She Get It? Kendall Jenner's Forever 21 Overalls

Okay, so we admit we might be a bit obsessed with overalls (it takes us back to our middle school days haha). And these, worn by Kendall Jenner are definitely going to be added to our must-buy list. The budget fashionista was spotted in LAX airport wearing these overalls from none other than Forever 21! They're a steal for just $28 bucks. Although they are currently sold out online, you might still have some luck finding them in stores. Let us know if you find them!

Fall Fashion Must-Haves

September 21, 2015   

By Contributor Liz de La Nuez

I realize that I live in Miami where we have one season all year long and it’s usually 90 degrees on a good day, but that doesn’t stop this Floridian from dreaming about fall fashion. I love the jewel tones and layers that come with fall. I have gathered together a list of my favorite go-to pieces for fall in the perfect shades of autumn awesomeness. Enjoy and happy shopping!

Part I: Ultimate Seekender- Myrtle Beach, SC

September 17, 2015   

A few weeks back I shared with you that I partnered with Hampton by Hilton to become one of their “Ultimate Seekenders.” As part of my “Seekender” assignment I headed off to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with my family. Have you ever been? As a Seekender, I’m always up for going on an adventure to trying new things with my family. Myrtle Beach’s local offerings mixed with its beach town vibe makes for the perfect weekend getaway.

In case you’re planning your own trip to this charming town, here are a few things we did:

Things to Do

Broadway at the Beach - Our hotel was located right on Broadway at the Beach, so we spent a lot of time here. It’s a boardwalk with tons of restaurants, attractions and shops. I feel like Andres was in toddler paradise, it had the 3 things that he’s been obsessed with lately: cars, dinosaurs and fishes. Our first stop was ….

Ripley’s Aquarium: This is a great place to visit if you have kids. They have tons of sea life, “touch tanks” and they even have a live mermaid show. Andres enjoyed seeing the shark tunnel and even got to touch a sting ray. Oh and of course, he was also so excited to see the clown fishes (Nemo). 

Dinosaurs the Exhibit- This was another fun exhibit at the Broadway at the Beach boardwalk, especially since Andres is all into dinosaurs now. It had robot dinosaurs and a play area. At the end of the exhibit he also got to ride a robot dinosaur and make his own dinosaur movie using a green screen (it was so funny seeing the final video).

Ridemakerz- After we had dinner we checked out this store called Ridemakerz. It’s kind of like a Build-A-Bear only 100 times better where you build your own toy car. You get to customize everything from the body style, sound effects (for example sirens or race sounds) and free wheel or radio control. You also get to pick your own accessories from type of tires, rims, decals you name it. Andres of course decided to go with a Lighting McQueen version. After you pick all the accessories, then you build it yourself. I wish they had one of these in Miami!

Where to Stay

We stayed at the Hampton by Hilton right on the Broadway at the Beach boardwalk, which was super convenient. It was also a short 5-minute drive from the beach. The staff was super welcoming and friendly. One of the many perks was the On The House Hot Breakfast, which is their free hot breakfast served daily with all the works from fresh-baked waffles, hearty oatmeal with toppings, fresh fruit, omelets and more! It’s so practical, especially when you have a toddler that loves to wake up at 7am! We would simply go downstairs, grab breakfast and then go back to our room to finish getting ready for the day.

The room was also super spacious and after a long day at the beach nothing beat coming back to a clean and fresh bed for an afternoon nap.

The hotel also had an indoor and outdoor pool and free Wi-Fi (which is always a plus). I highly recommend it if you’re ever planning on coming to Myrtle Beach.
